4 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.

To achieve this goal, he believed he must do something spectacular on the battlefield. Despite putting himself in extreme danger as a British Army officer in the colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising, glory and fame had eluded him. 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. This book is an epic story of bravery, historical characters, including Kipling and Gandhi, and unbelievable bravery.

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.
