Thunder Below: The USS Barb Revolutionizes Submarine Warfare in World War II, Admiral Eugene B. Fluckey
5 Admiral Eugene B. Fluckey Thunder Below: The USS Barb Revolutionizes Submarine Warfare in World War II
Chicago, IL University of Illinois Press 1992 0252019253 / 9780252019258 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
The thunderous roar of exploding depth charges was a familiar and comforting sound to the crew members of the USS Barb, who frequently found themselves somewhere between enemy fire and Davy Jones's locker. Under the leadership of her fearless skipper, Captain Gene Fluckey, the Barb sank the greatest tonnage of any American sub in World War II. At the same time, the Barb did far more than merely sink ships - she changed forever the way submarines stalk and kill their prey. This is a gripping adventure chock-full of you-are-there moments. Fluckey has drawn on logs, reports, letters, interviews, and a recently discovered illegal diary kept by one of his torpedomen. And in a fascinating twist, he uses archival documents from the Japanese Navy to give its version of events. The unique story of the Barb begins with its men, who had the confidence to become unbeatable. Each team helped develop innovative ideas, new tactics, and new strategies. All strove for personal excellence, and success became contagious. Instead of lying in wait under the waves, the USS Barb pursued enemy ships on the surface, attacking in the swift and precise style of torpedo boats. She was the first sub to use rocket missiles and to creep up on enemy convoys at night, joining the flank escort line from astern, darting in and out as she sank ships up the column. Surface-cruising, diving only to escape, Luckey Fluckey relentlessly patrolled the Pacific, driving his boat and crew to their limits. There can be no greater contrast to modern warfare's long-distance, video-game style of battle than the exploits of the captain and crew of the USS Barb, where the sub, out of ammunition, actually rammed an enemy ship untilit sank. Thunder Below! is a first-rate, true-life, inspirational story of the courage and heroism of ordinary men under fire.

The Envoy: The Epic Rescue of the Last Jews of Europe in the Desperate Closing Months of World War II, Alex Kershaw

Cambridge, MA Da Capo Press 2010 0306815575 / 9780306815577 Paperback Very Good 
"Uncorrected Proof" December 1944. Soviet and German troops fight from house to house in the shattered, corpse-strewn suburbs of Budapest. Crazed Hungarian fascists join with die-hard Nazis to slaughter Jews day and night, turning the Danube blood-red. In less than six months, thirty-eight-year-old SS Colonel Adolf Eichmann has sent over half a million Hungarians to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. Now all that prevents him from liquidating Europe’s last Jewish ghetto is an unarmed Swedish diplomatic envoy named Raoul Wallenberg. The Envoy is the stirring tale of how one man made the greatest difference in the face of untold evil. The legendary Oscar Schindler saved hundreds, but Raoul Wallenberg did what no other individual or nation managed to do: He saved more than 100,000 Jewish men, women, and children from extermination. Written with Alex Kershaw’s customary narrative verve, The Envoy is a fast-paced, nonfiction thriller that brings to life one of the darkest and yet most inspiring chapters of twentieth century history. It is an epic for the ages.

The Diary of a Young Girl (The Definitive Edition), Anne Frank

New York, NY Doubleday 1995 0385473788 / 9780385473781 Hard Cover Good Good 
Light scuff-wear on bottom cover edge. The diary as Anne Frank wrote it. At last, in a new translation, this definitive edition contains entries about Anne's burgeoning sexuality and confrontations with her mother that were cut from previous editions. Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been a beloved and deeply admired monument to the indestructible nature of the human spirit, read by millions of people and translated into more than fifty-five languages. Doubleday, which published the first English translation of the diary in 1952, now offers a new translation that captures Anne's youthful spirit and restores the original material omitted by Anne's father, Otto -- approximately thirty percent of the diary. The elder Frank excised details about Anne's emerging sexuality, and about the often-stormy relations between Anne and her mother. Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation forces, hid in the back of an Amsterdam office building for two years. This is Anne's record of that time. She was thirteen when the family went into the "Secret Annex," and in these pages, she grows to be a young woman and proves to be an insightful observer of human nature as well. A timeless story discovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer. For young readers and adults, it continues to bring to life this young woman, who for a time survived the worst horrors the modern world had seen -- and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.

Love in the Tempest of History: A French Resistance Story, Aude Yung-de Prevaux
23 Aude Yung-de Prevaux Love in the Tempest of History: A French Resistance Story
New York The Free Press 2000 0743201949 / 9780743201940 Hard Cover Used As New As New 
In 1966, a young student doing research in the National Library of France was confronted by an elderly gentleman who had overheard her name. Despite her polite denials, he insisted that she must be the daughter of the Resistance heroes Jacques and Lotka de Prevaux. Curious about the strange episode, Aude Yung-de Prevaux recounted the story to her mother. To Aude's amazement, her mother confirmed the old man's account and, shockingly, admitted she was actually Aude's aunt. Thus began an odyssey of discovery that uncovered not only Aude Yung-de Prevaux's own hidden history, but also that of her tragic parents and their doomed love -- one of the most haunting stories of the Second World War. Using the tattered letters and military records she found in the trunks containing her father's belongings -- now reclaimed from a godfather living in Morocco -- as well as personal interviews, Yung-de Prevaux has reconstructed the lives of the parents she never knew. From the shadows of the chaotic war years emerges her real father, brother to the one she had known. Jacques Trolley de Prevaux was a brilliant and handsome vice admiral with a gift for diplomacy -- and a penchant for literature, bohemian company, and opium. A slave to his appetites, as well as to his high ideals, he suffered all his life from contradictory impulses -- loyalty to the navy, now controlled by Vichy, and loyalty to an independent France; respect for tradition and scorn for society's suffocating rules; dedication to family and a thirst for adventure; duty to his wife and passion for his soul mate. From the murkiness of a Polish shtetl and the seething throngs of turn-of-the-century New York, with all the prejudices ofthe Old World and the sufferings of the New, emerged the true image of Aude's mother, Charlotte Leitner, known to everyone as Lotka. A beautiful American-born Polish Jew who worked as a fashion model in Paris, this headstrong and fiery woman refused to stay any course not of her own choosing. Across class, social, and religious lines she pursued her love, and she stole his heart with no regard for the cost. To the horror of his staunchly Catholic haute-bourgeois family and her insecure and modest Jewish parents, these lovers sloughed off their former selves, married, and forged a new life. With boundless faith that their love would overcome all obstacles, they set out to create their own world -- until the horrors of war shattered their reality. And yet chaos would bring out their most heroic selves -- and cause their ultimate destruction. They pledged themselves to the service of their country in its darkest hour, and the bravery they demonstrated as a couple made them two of the most significant Resistance fighters in the south of France. But for all their bravery, nothing would redeem them to Jacques' indignant family, not even the tragic climax when, betrayed days before the Allies liberated their prison, they were executed on the orders of Klaus Barbie in August 1944 -- making an orphan of the author, their little girl. This extraordinary story, revealed as a result of one woman's quest to discover her past, recaptures a lost chapter in the history of a nation at war and returns to the pantheon two of its most romantic heroes.

History of the Second World War, B. H. Liddell Hart
24 B. H. Liddell Hart History of the Second World War
New York G. P. Putman's Sons 1970 Hard Cover Good Poor 
766 pages. 766 pages. Light discoloration on page edges. This magnificent work is based largely on the priceless personal collection of private documents and the author's constant study of the day-to-day events of the war. For all its clarity, Liddell Hart's History does not always make for comforting reading. It is a military history on the broadest possible scale, ranging from the frustrating events preceding the war, through all the campaigns and battles of seven turbulent years, to the final conclusion of hostilities. Trenchant, searching, thought-provoking, it is a study in realism and objective analysis, uncluttered by self-deception. Cherished illusions fade under fresh surveillance; long-held beliefs of justification fall under new questioning; reputations are reexamined by one of the most incisive minds of our time; judgments of our past are made lessons for our present and our future.

Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies, Ben MacIntyre
26 Ben MacIntyre Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies
New York Crown 2012 0307888754 / 9780307888754 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
In his celebrated bestsellers Agent Zigzag and Operation Mincemeat, Ben Macintyre told the dazzling true stories of a remarkable WWII double agent and of how the Allies employed a corpse to fool the Nazis and assure a decisive victory. In Double Cross, Macintyre returns with the untold story of the grand final deception of the war and of the extraordinary spies who achieved it. On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and suffered an astonishingly low rate of casualties. D-Day was a stunning military accomplishment, but it was also a masterpiece of trickery. Operation Fortitude, which protected and enabled the invasion, and the Double Cross system, which specialized in turning German spies into double agents, deceived the Nazis into believing that the Allies would attack at Calais and Norway rather than Normandy. It was the most sophisticated and successful deception operation ever carried out, ensuring that Hitler kept an entire army awaiting a fake invasion, saving thousands of lives, and securing an Allied victory at the most critical juncture in the war. The story of D-Day has been told from the point of view of the soldiers who fought in it, the tacticians who planned it, and the generals who led it. But this epic event in world history has never before been told from the perspectives of the key individuals in the Double Cross System. These include its director (a brilliant, urbane intelligence officer), a colorful assortment of MI5 handlers (as well as their counterparts in Nazi intelligence), and the five spies who formed Double Cross’s nucleus: a dashing Serbian playboy, a Polish fighter-pilot, a bisexual Peruvian party girl, a deeply eccentric Spaniard with a diploma in chicken farming and a volatile Frenchwoman, whose obsessive love for her pet dog very nearly wrecked the entire plan. The D-Day spies were, without question, one of the oddest military units ever assembled, and their success depended on the delicate, dubious relationship between spy and spymaster, both German and British. Their enterprise was saved from catastrophe by a shadowy sixth spy whose heroic sacrifice is revealed here for the first time.

Lost Pulse, Bill Shumaker
29 Bill Shumaker Lost Pulse
Humbolt, TN Deo Volente Publishing 2004 0975344609 / 9780975344606 Trade Paperback Good Signed by Author
There is a note by the author on the first page. It's 1939 in Germany. Hitler's Third Reich is vigorously pursuing its quest for racial, cultural, and social purity. Selective human breeding through the Lebensborn program and systematic euthanasia are to eliminate all traces of ethnic impurity and physical weakness. Genetic research is underway to perfect the near-perfect Aryan strain at the expense of the imperfect. Except for a few brave martyrs, even the German church has given consent to Hitler's dream of a "Thousand Year Reich." Of what value, then, is one life - the life of Anna - a small, sick child? Lost Pulse is the thrilling story of an unlikely rescue attempt by three unlikely people. The exercise of God's power through human weakness, against one of the greatest forces for evil that our world has known will inspire and excite readers. Even though the story is fictional, the historically accurate setting opens a window into the darkness of the Nazi era. And perhaps this story of the re-quickening of the "lost pulse" of compassion will awaken us in the 21st century to check our own "vital signs."

John Frederick Charles Fuller (1878–1966), British soldier, military analyst, and war historian, is considered the father of modern armored (tank) warfare—first as planner of the attack at Cambrai in November 1917, and then as author of a number of works that challenged traditional British military thought. His ideas were resisted in his own country but had a major impact on German and Soviet military doctrine. Sir Basil Liddell Hart (1895–1970) was also a British military historian and analyst of note and authored influential military histories covering figures from Scipio Africanus to Field Marshal Rommel. In the twelve analytical essays in Studies in British Military Thought Brian Holden Reid examines these two figures whose ideas have influenced the interpretation of events in military history from antiquity to the Cold War. He compares and contrasts their views on tactics, operational art and strategy, and war as a social phenomenon. Additionally, he discusses the radically different temperaments of the two and shows how their differences shaped their work in important ways. In so doing, he continues to bring their ideas to students and practitioners of modern warfare and raises fundamental issues concerning the nature of war.

Best Little Stories of World War II is a journalistic history of World War II in the form of more than 150 vignettes reflecting the war's humor and pathos, triumph and tragedy. Here is the story of the war as it affected soldiers and civilians, leaders and common folk alike - real people who bravely endured the times. While one can never learn or tell all their stories, one can honor their memories by recounting their amazing, inspiring, poignant, ironic, and yes, even pitiful stories in this war to end all wars. Included are such stories as: Professor William Miller, who collapsed during a 75-mile "death march" in Germany and was saved b the same man who had rescued him from a car wreck in Pennsylvania five years earlier. Karl Fuchs, a German tank gunner who wrote tender letters to his wife as his Panzer division invaded Russia. Jim Kilroy, worker at a shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts, whose say of signing off on his inspections became the morale-boosting slogan for countless GI's: "Kilroy was here." Kasuo Sakamaki, pilot of a midget submarine who was captured after a failed attempt to infiltrate Pearl Harbor. "Kitty," the diary of a Jewish teenager in Amsterdam rescued after the war by her father and published in thirty-two languages as Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. These and many more stories and anecdotes fill the pages of this fascinating book that will make World War II come alive with the thoughts and feelings of those who were there.

Honolulu, Hawaii University Press of the Pacific 2002 0898758742 / 9780898758740 Trade Paperback Very Good 
The United States Army Forces in the China, Burma and India Theater were originally planned as a task force to support China. They were largely based on India; only a small fraction of their strength was in China itself. In China, the Generalissimo, Chiang Kai-shek, was Supreme Commander, China Theater. In India, Gen. Sir Archibald P. Wavell had a comparable role and title. The two portions of the U. S. forces - in India and China - were separated by Japanese-occupied Burma. The U. S. theater commander had two major roles, in that he was an American theater commander and also chief of the Generalissimo’s Allied staff for China Theater. The command situation was thus most complex. More complications were provided by differing views on strategy held by the United States, the Republic of China, and the British Commonwealth. Reading the history of the China-Burma-India Theater will be an eye opener and a lesson to those who, in the future, have to deal with allies in far distant lands about whom so much should be known and so little is.

A Bridge Too Far, Cornelius Ryan
50 Cornelius Ryan A Bridge Too Far
New York Simon And Schuster 1974 0671217925 / 9780671217921 Hard Cover Good Poor 
Previous owner's name is inside the front cover. On 17th September 1944, the people of southern England gaped as the mightiest airborne force in history thundered overhead "en route" for Arnhem. Arnhem was 64 miles behind the German lines in Holland, and Field-Marshal Montgomery's plan was to sieze the Rhine bridges at Arnhem and Nijmegen to allow an Allied thrust into the industrial heart of Nazi Germany. The Allied armies south of the Rhine were due to reinforce the airborne troops once the bridges had been captured. When Lt-General "Boy" Browning, the Deputy Commander of the First Allied Airborne Army, asked Montgomery how long it would take for the reinforcements to reach the bridges, he was told that it would be two days. "Sir", replied Browning, "I think we may be going a bridge too far". Cornelius Ryan's account of the tragic miscalculations at Arnhem and the valour of the troops on either side is a classic. Over 17,000 British, Polish and American troops became casualties - more than on D-Day - but Arnhem remains a beacon of heroism in the annals of miltiary endeavour.

Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen
57 Daniel Jonah Goldhagen Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust
New York Vintage Books 1996 0679772685 / 9780679772682 Paperback Good 
This groundbreaking international bestseller lays to rest many myths about the Holocaust: that Germans were ignorant of the mass destruction of Jews, that the killers were all SS men, and that those who slaughtered Jews did so reluctantly. Hitler's Willing Executioners provides conclusive evidence that the extermination of European Jewry engaged the energies and enthusiasm of tens of thousands of ordinary Germans. Goldhagen reconstructs the climate of "eliminationist anti-Semitism" that made Hitler's pursuit of his genocidal goals possible and the radical persecution of the Jews during the 1930s popular. Drawing on a wealth of unused archival materials, principally the testimony of the killers themselves, Goldhagen takes us into the killing fields where Germans voluntarily hunted Jews like animals, tortured them wantonly, and then posed cheerfully for snapshots with their victims. From mobile killing units, to the camps, to the death marches, Goldhagen shows how ordinary Germans, nurtured in a society where Jews were seen as unalterable evil and dangerous, willingly followed their beliefs to their logical conclusion.

Underlining through book. A work of the utmost importance--as authoritative as it is explosive--Hitler's Willing Executioners will fundamentally change our perception of the Holocaust and of Germany in the Nazi period. Goldhagen reaches conclusions that are both uncompromising and savage, rejecting as inadequate the conventional historical explanations for how an entire country could allow the Holocaust to happen, and gives the first detailed, broad-ranging account of the actual killers of the Jews. 31 photos.

To Win The Winter Sky: The Air War Over The Ardennes 1944-45, Danny S. Parker

Conshohocken, PA Combined Books 1994 0938289357 / 9780938289357 Hard Cover Used As New Used As New 
As Allied and German armies fought on the ground in the Battle of the Bulge, an equally desperate battle raged in the skies overhead, as enemy air forces fought the weather and each other for supremacy.Acclaimed author Danny Parker completes the narrative begun in his highly successful Battle of the Bulge. He covers the important and previously unexplored air aspect of a famous land battle. Those who thought they were thoroughly familiar with Hitler's last offensive will find a wealth of new information here, including exclusive interviews with war-time airmen, over 100 rare photos, the unknown story of German MIAs, Luftwaffe jets and other secret weapons, losses in men and aircraft for both sides from government archives, aircraft performance comparisons, and the innovations in tactics and technology that made victory for one side possible and defeat for the other side inevitable.Through all the facts and figures, Danny Parker weaves a compelling narrative about the airmen on both sides in the last desperate days of World War II, about their conflicts with the enemy and among themselves as they stood on the brink of victory--and defeat. As the end of the war drew near, Allied leaders were divided between British and Americans, air and ground commanders, and advocates of strategic and tactical air operations. On the German side, Luftwaffe leaders Hermann Göring and Dietrich Peltz sought to obey every order to the bitter end, while Luftwaffe fighter commander Adolf Galland struggled to save his last reserves of young pilots from a final and futile slaughter.Danny S. Parker is a former research consultant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff on the Battle of the Bulge, and is the author of "Ten Percent Chance of Victory: The Last Operation of the German Airborne," and The Battle of the Bulge. He is highly regarded by veterans,
