Fighter Boys: The Battle of Britain, 1940
The summer of 1940 was supposed to be the beginning of the end of Britain. Europe had fallen to Hitler's storm troops with terrifying speed, and once the Royal Air Force was destroyed, Britain was next. But that was precisely where the Nazis stumbled. For 123 days, while Herman Goering sent wave after wave of Luftwaffe fighters to rain down fire on Britain, three thousand young RAF airmen fought back with a ferocity and agility that stunned the world. Now in this riveting book, military historian and journalist Patrick Bishop presents the first account of this critical campaign told from the perspective of the pilots themselves.
Allies: Pearl Harbor to D-Day John S. D. Eisenhower$14.00
Dwight D. Eisenhower once remarked that "the history of alliances is a
history of failure." This provocative, absorbing work, based on a study
by the General and written by his son, is a history of one of the great
exceptions, the most successful military alliance the world has ever seen--the
Anglo-American military alliance of World War II. At once a study of the
prodigious undertaking that brought millions of men and women together
to defeat the Axis and a portrait of the great personalities who built
and sustained the alliance, Allies offers vivid glimpses of war at the
working level: on a convoy crossing the Atlantic, with a secret landing
party on the coast of northern Africa, and with armored units in Tunisia.
Eisenhower has crafted a powerful narrative and a most valuable contribution
to the literature of World War II.
