The Martin Marauder Mk. I: The British

The Martin Marauder Mk. I: The British by Phil H. ListemannThe Spitfire XVI is one of the Spitfire mark to have been so far little covered in depth. It was actually a Mk. IX engined with an American built Packard engine but otherwise it was very familar to a IX. Used in the fighter-bomber role, from the UK with the Fighter Command or from the Continent with the 2 TAF, one of the main task given to the XVI would be the destruction of the V-2 sites located in Holland. This book gives the details of the operations carried out by the British squadrons, Nos. 66, 74, 127, 229, 602 and 603. This study doesn't continue beyond the summer 1945. Thirty photos...

In May 1945, with victory in Europe established, the war was all but over. But on the other side of the world, the Allies were still engaged in a bitter struggle to control the Pacific. And it was then that the Japanese unleashed a terrible new form of warfare: the suicide pilots, or Kamikaze.

Steel and Ice: The U-boat Battle in the Arctic and Black Sea 1941-45

Steel and Ice: The U-boat Battle in the Arctic and Black Sea 1941-45 by Lawrence PatersonThe U-boat war against Russia was as fierce and unrelenting as the land war that raged along the Eastern Front between 1941 and 1945. From Wolf Pack attacks on Russian convoy traffic and military vessels to close-quarter combat undertaken by small U-boats transported by land and river to the Black Sea, the Kriegsmarine wrestled for control of the seas fringing an embattled Soviet Union. Previously untold in English, the struggle between the Kriegsmarine's U-boats and the Red Navy lasted from the opening salvos of Operation Barbarossa to the final chaotic days of Germany's defeat.

Chapter 1

On October 3, 1944, Patton??s forces were fighting for Fort Driant, a heavily fortified German position near the French town of Metz. The men of his Third Army were inspired a few months earlier by his speech before D-Day, in which Patton told them that Americans do not lose. Up to that point, Patton had never lost a battle.

Patton??s men both loved and feared him. He was known for salty language, which he said he used because he wanted to speak as his men did.

The Last Raid: The Commandos, Channel Islands and Final Nazi Raid

The Last Raid: The Commandos, Channel Islands and Final Nazi Raid by Will FowlerThe occupation of the Channel Islands in World War II is an often-neglected aspect of the war: here, for the first time, Will Fowler presents an atmospheric account of life under German occupation peppered with first-hand accounts and details of the political manoeuvring behind the scenes. Fowler sets down the failed raids and planning and provides the most comprehensive account of the last German raid of the war: the Granville Raid of 8th March 1945. The raid was a success, damaging British and American ships taking much-needed coal back to the Channel Islands.

Operation Basalt: The British Raid on Sark and Hitler's Commando Order by Eric LeeOperation Basalt was carried out by British commandos on the island of Sark on the night of 3/4 October 1942, intended to serve several purposes. The raid itself was a tactical success: a German prisoner was captured, several more were killed, and all British soldiers returned safely to base. It is remembered because of Hitler's reaction. He ordered: 'In future, all terror and sabotage troops of the British... will be ruthlessly eliminated in battle.' Using the National Archives and the Sark Society archives, Eric Lee tells the Basalt story for the first time. Did the commandos bind and kill...

World War II Through the Eyes of Children

World War II Through the Eyes of Children by Sandra Brockmeyer Button

World War II Through the Eyes of Children is a series of interviews following several individuals during the late 1930??s and '40??s, when their youthful lives were shattered, their faith questioned and their hope nearly crushed.

Those incredible early experiences did not push them toward revenge or self-destruction, but motivated each of them to find and unleash strength, courage, and stamina.

These survivors freely and enthusiastically gave the gift of their life stories. Each wanted theirs to be...

The Last Days of Stalin

The Last Days of Stalin by Joshua RubensteinJoshua Rubenstein's riveting account takes us back to the second half of 1952 when no one could foresee an end to Joseph Stalin's murderous regime. He was poised to challenge the newly elected U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower with armed force, and was also broadening a vicious campaign against Soviet Jews. Stalin's sudden collapse and death in March 1953 was as dramatic and mysterious as his life. It is no overstatement to say that his passing marked a major turning point in the twentieth century.

Flight of Fantasy: New Perspectives on Inner Emigration in German Literature 1933-1945

Flight of Fantasy: New Perspectives on Inner Emigration in German Literature 1933-1945 by Neil H. Donahue During the Nazi era many German writers chose, or were forced into, exile. Many others stayed and, after the end of this period, claimed to have retreated into "Inner Emigration". The nature of this kind of emigration and the underlying motives of these writers have been hotly debated to this day. Though the reception of Inner Emigration has often been confounded by disputes over the term itself, the issue is ultimately not a matter of nomenclature, but of more far-reaching issues of literary evaluation, moral discernment and the writing of history. This volume presents, for the first time,...

Hitler's Soldiers: The German Army in the Third Reich

Hitler's Soldiers: The German Army in the Third Reich by Ben H. ShepherdFor decades after 1945, it was generally believed that the German army, professional and morally decent, had largely stood apart from the SS, Gestapo, and other corps of the Nazi machine. Ben Shepherd draws on a wealth of primary sources and recent scholarship to convey a much darker, more complex picture. For the first time, the German army is examined throughout the Second World War, across all combat theaters and occupied regions, and from multiple perspectives: its battle performance, social composition, relationship with the Nazi state, and involvement in war crimes and military occupation....

Screen Nazis: Cinema, History, and Democracy

Screen Nazis: Cinema, History, and Democracy by Sabine Hake

From the late 1930s to the early twenty-first century, European and American filmmakers have displayed an enduring fascination with Nazi leaders, rituals, and symbols, making scores of films from Confessions of a Nazi Spy (1939) and Watch on the Rhine (1943) through Des Teufels General (The Devil??s General, 1955) and Pasqualino settebellezze (Seven Beauties, 1975), up to Der Untergang (Downfall, 2004), Inglourious Basterds (2009), and beyond.

The Fightin' Texas Aggie Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor

The Fightin' Texas Aggie Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor by John A.

Beginning in early 1942, the Japanese Imperial Army invaded the Philippines in an attempt to control the Pacific region and expand its sphere of influence. The defense and last stand of Filipino and American allied forces marked the largest surrender in their respective military histories. Their efforts slowed the Japanese advance but only at great cost.

Fascism and Theatre: Comparative Studies on the Aesthetics and Politics of Performance in Europe, 1925-1945 by G?nter Berghaus Since the 1920s, an endless flow of studies has analyzed the political systems of fascism, theseizure of power, the nature of the regimes, the atrocities committed, and, finally, the wars waged against other countries. However, much less attention has been paid to the strategies of persuasion employed by the regimes to win over the masses for their cause. Among these, fascist propaganda has traditionally been seen as the key means of influencing public opinion. Only recently has the "fascination with Fascism" become a topic of enquiry that has also formed the guiding interest of this volume:...

"Getting History Right": East and West German Collective Memories of the Holocaust and War

"Getting History Right": East and West German Collective Memories of the Holocaust and War by Mark A. WolfgramHow do individuals, societies, and nations deal with their difficult pasts? 'Getting History Right' examines this question in a comparative context by looking at an authoritarian East Germany and a pluralistic, democratic West Germany. It examines how societal level discussions of the past shaped individual perceptions and interpretations of the past; and how individual perceptions and struggles over the meaning of the past shaped societal level discussions. These struggles over meaning and 'getting history right' are not only shaped by political power, but are also a source of symbolic power.

Otto Abetz and His Paris Acolytes: French Writers Who Flirted with Fascism, 1930-1945 by Martin MauthnerBefore Hitler comes to power Otto Abetz is a left-wing Francophile teacher in provincial Germany, mobilizing young French and German idealists to work together for peace through Franco-German reconciliation and a united Europe.

Churchill and the Montgomery Myth

Churchill and the Montgomery Myth by R. W. ThompsonThis is perhaps the most revealing case history of the politics of modern warfare ever set down. It is a story of a time when image making and public relations took precedence over strategy at the cost of thousands of lives. It is the story of the distortion of history and the promulgation of questionable glory.

By August 1942, disaster had struck Great Britain in every theater of war, Singapore had fallen; Crete was gone; the Egyptians were hammering at Egypt. The British Navy and Air Force were being repulsed, and Churchill wrote: “I should have then vanished from the scene and the harvest...

Morrison had brought home the sole surviving 82 Squadron aircraft of 12 that had set out on a bombing sortie over France earlier that day. His aircraft was so badly damaged by enemy fire that it had to be written off; none of the other eleven bombers made it back to RAF Watton, though some of their aircrew survived. Their stories form the core of this book. Apart from the quiet chatter of a few mechanics, who were checking that one aircraft was too badly damaged ever to fly again, there was...
