6 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.

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.

Dead Wake  The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, Erik Larson
16 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.

The book spans 3 centuries of history and offers intimate portraits of world leaders.
