1 Alan Schom The Eagle and the Rising Sun: The Japanese-American War 1941-1943: Pearl Harbor Through Guadalcanal
Norton Publishing 2004 0393049248 / 9780393049244 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. First Edition 2004 W.W. Norton Publishing. On Sat. 08-02-41, The Washington Post reported that Pres. Roosevelt would depart the next day for a vacation aboard his yacht, Potomac. By the morning of August 5, the Potomac was sailing, but the president was not on board. He had disembarked under cover of dark, and was headed for Newfoundland, where the U.S and British would meet in a secret summit. Ready or not, the U.S. was to be catapulted into World War ll within a matter of months. The author demonstrates an ironic paradox in this book. On one hand, the American government and people were not prepared for war; on the other hand, the Japanese plunged headlong into the Pacific campaign despite clear evidence - from their own analytics - that they had too little oil, too feeble an economy, and more to prevail. This book embraces concerns of the war with telling details and turning points. Fascinating history.

Wm Morrow Publishing 1991 0688096956 / 9780688096953 Hardcover As New As New 
This is a collectible as new hardcover with dust jacket. Crisp and clean inside with clean shiny jacket. Only hint of shelf wear from display to jacket is very minor rubbing bottom edge middle of jacket. This is the untold story of the Twins of Auschwitz and Dr Josef Mengele. Several yrs after the discovery of the alleged remains of Dr. Josef Mengele in a Brazilian cemetery, the victims of his vicious medical experiments continue to grapple with his tortuous legacy. For the most part, his subjects were twins who, until now, had kept silent, rarely discussing their death camp ordeals. This narrative book of the life of Auschwitz's Angel of Death is told in the counterpoint to the lives of the surviving twins who are now entering old age. The heart of this book centers on the yrs after the Liberation, following the survivors as they rebuild their lives best they can. It also features a historic reunion of surviving twins of Auschwitz in the 40th Anniversary of their liberation. This is a story about the Holocaust and its after math. We hear directly from the surviving twins, their horrific ordeal, and their struggle to move forward.
