3 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.

In 1899 he arrived in South Africa to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. Two weeks after his arrival the soldiers he was accompanying on a train were ambushed and Churchill was taken prisoner. He pulled off a daring escape traversed hundreds of miles through enemy territory with a wad of cash, four bits of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. As if his escape was not incredible enough, he enlisted and returned to South Africa and ultimately helped liberate the men he was previously imprisoned with.

9 David M. Kennedy Freedom From Fear The American People in Depression and War, 1929-1945
Oxford University Press 1999 0195038347 / 9780195038347 Hardcover New New 
This is a new collectible hardcover with dust jacket. 1999 Oxford University Press. Between 1929 and 1945, two great American travails were visited upon the American people: The Great Depression and World War Two. This book tells the story of how American endured, and eventually prevailed, in the face of those unprecedented calamities. The author vividly demonstrates the economic crisis of the '30's was far more than a simple reaction to the excesses of the '20's. The economic boom of the industrial revolution gyrated through boom and bust cycles, and average Americans eked out life on the margins. Prosperity was not uniformly shared. Then came the New Deal and a lasting legacy. But, even as the New Deal was coping with the Depression, along came Hitler and his thirst for power. The same generation who endured the Depression now had to bear arms and sacrifice for the great war. This is a comprehensive account of events that shaped the American future.

Dead Wake  The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, Erik Larson
13 Erik Larson Dead Wake The Last Crossing of the Lusitania
Crown Publishing 2015 0307408868 / 9780307408860 First Edition Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. From the bestselling author Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, comes the story of the sinking of the Lusitania. The luxury liner The Lusitania was one of the greyhounds of the North Atlantic. It sailed out of New York bound for Liverpool carrying a record number of children and infants. Passengers were surprisingly at ease, given that World War l was entering its 10th month. Her captain had placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly structures of warfare that had kept civilian ships safe from attack for over a century. Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of the game. As a German U-Boat and the Lusitania made their way toward Liverpool, - hubris, chance fog, a guarded secret, and more - converged to produce one of the great disasters of history. The author tells this story thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era. The book brings to life a cast of evocative characters from famed Boston bookseller Charles Lauriat to female architect Theodate Pope to Pres. Wilson and more. Gripping important history that most of us think we know, but have no idea of the vast making and sinking of the great ship. Illustrated maps inside front and back cover.

This book recounts the stirring saga of the Knights Templar, the Christian warrior-monks who occupied the sacred Mount in the aftermath of the butchery of the First Crusade. Recruited to a life of poverty, chastity and obedience intended to lead only to martyrdom on the battlefield, they were dedicated to the pious paradox that the wholesale slaughter of non-believers would earn the eternal gratitude of the Prince of Peace. They amassed great wealth that was used to finance their 200 yrs of war against Muslims. Their reward for 2 centuries of military martyrdom was to be arrested by pope and king, tortured and finally decreed out of existence. But, their legend and legacy would not die.
