Louis Zamperini wird 1917 als Sohn italienischer Einwanderer in den USA geboren. Als Kind war er ständig in Schwierigkeiten, bis er sein Talent als Mittelstreckenläufer entdeckte. 1936 nimmt Louis Zamperini als jüngstes Mitglied des US-Leichtathletik-Teams an den Olympischen Spielen in Berlin teil. Er läuft zwar “nur” als achter durchs Ziel, liefert sich aber ein so packendes Finalrennen, dass Adolf Hitler ihm persönlich gratuliert. Vier Jahre später gilt Zamperini als großer Favorit für die Olympischen Spiele in Tokyo, die wegen 2. Weltkrieges jedoch abgesagt werden. 1941 meldet er sich freiwillig zur US-Luftwaffe. Als sein Flugzeug im Meer abstürzt, kann er sich mit anderen in ein Schlauchboot retten. 47 Tage lang treiben er und seine Kameraden Phil und Mac auf dem Pazifik, nur um von den Japanern aufgegriffen und in ein Straflager verlegt zu werden, wo sie mit den anderen Kriegsgefangenen den Launen der Wärter ausgesetzt sind. Erst im Sommer 1945 kommt Louis frei.

Combat Crew: The Story of 25 Combat Missions ov...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Comer kept a journal of the 25 missions he flew in 1943, when the casualty rate on his base was close to 80 percent. His book is handwritten history, recorded within hours after the battles occurred. Comer vividly creates his experiences as top-turret gunner/flight engineer in a B-17 squadron that was thrown against the best pilots the Luftwaffe could offer. In 1943 the army air force had no long-range fighters to protect the B-17s as they flew deep into enemy territory. Immediate, straightforward, and compelling, Combat Crew is a classic of aerial warfare. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Lawlor.

January 1943. The naval war in the North Atlantic is at its deadliest as a diminished Luftwaffe cannot defend the Brittany coast and its submarine stations from RAF bombers. Still, St-Cyr and Kohler continue to fight "common crime" under the Occupation. A Breton shopkeeper has been murdered. The accused, a U-boat Kapitn, is a protégé of Admiral Doenitz and heir to a doll manufactory. Unwilling players in a tragedy driven by greed and revenge, St-Cyr and Kohler must also contend with a fiercely loyal submarine crew, all of whom refuse to put to sea without their beloved Dollmaker. 1.

Dead Eagles: Raiding Forces, Book 2 , Hörbuch, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this sequel to Those Who Dare, US Major John Randal, Commander of Strategic Raiding Forces is back, leading a crew of British Commandos, Royal Marines, and Royal Navy raiders on bigger and bolder missions to foil Hitler's Third Reich. Off the Gold Coast colony in Africa, the Germans are operating a naval intelligence ring that gathers information about British convoys in the southern sea lane. Couriers carry the data to nearby Rio Bonita, a tiny Portuguese island protectorate, whence they are broadcast to Nazi U-boats and surface raiders from a clandestine radio station onboard one of three interned enemy ships. As a result, British convoys vital to the war effort are ravaged. Major Randal and the Raiding Forces's mission is to invade neutral Rio Bonita and spirit away the three ships. Failure means either imprisonment or hanging for piracy - and that Portugal will declare war on its oldest ally. Peopling Dead Eagles are colorful characters new and old. There is Wild West showman Captain "Geronimo Joe" McKoy; the stunning Special Operations Executive operator Lady Jane Seaborn, who adopts the Raiding Forces as her own pet project; and Lady Jane's bombshell of a driver, Pamala Plum-Martin. Even Commander Ian Fleming puts in an appearance, submitting a plan for "Operation Ruthless", the goal of which is to board a Luftwaffe bomber and crash it into the English Channel in order to capture an Enigma coding device from a Nazi air-sea rescue craft. This action-packed adventure story features Lovat Scout Snipers, the takedown of the Vichy French fleet in English ports, daring Commando raids, an epic sea battle, and beautiful spies, and culminates in a deadly shoot-out in a crowed bar in Occupied France. 1.

The Squadron That Died Twice - The story of No....
5,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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 a shocked silence over the aerodrome as everyone there tried to understand the impossible.Twelve twin-engined bombers of 82 Squadron RAF had set out on a fi ne May morning in 1940, from Watton, Norfolk, in a brave but hopeless attempt to slow down the German armour ripping through Belgium. Sergeant Thomas 'Jock' Morrison was the pilot of the only one to come home.Heavy losses in Bomber Command in the Second World War were common, normal, came with the territory, but this? Eleven out of twelve were shot down, by flak and fighters, and lay in burning fragments along the Belgium/ France border.It is said that history repeats itself. And so it was, almost exactly three months later, on a cloudy day in August 1940, that twelve more twin-engined Bristol Blenheim bombers, each with a crew of three men, set off from Watton, Norfolk, in a brave but hopeless attempt to destroy a Luftwaffe base in enemy-occupied Denmark. One aircraft had to turn for home before it reached the target. The other eleven pressed on as the clouds disappeared and, on a fi ne sunny morning, were all shot down, by flak and fighters, and lay in burning fragments on the shores of the Lymfjord.At the time, when the whole world was trying to understand the impossible, how Germany could conquer Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Belgium and France in a few weeks, and Poland before that - and surely Great Britain next? - 82 Squadron's disasters were barely noticed.Based on the accounts of survivors and on squadron and other records, Gordon Thorburn's moving retelling of the story, of the events of it and the men in it, at last puts right that terrible omission.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! No. 264 Squadron RAF also known as No 264 (Madras Presidency) Squadron was a squadron of the Royal Air Force formed from two former Royal Naval Air Service flights, No. 439 and No. 440, on 27 September 1918 at Souda Bay, Crete to perform anti-submarine patrols. It operated the Short 184 floatplanes on patrols in the Aegean. It was disbanded on 1 March 1919. On 8 December 1939 the squadron was reformed at Martlesham Heath to bring the Boulton Paul Defiant fighter into service. Operations began in March 1940 when the squadron started convoy patrols. After initial successes the Luftwaffe soon realised that the Defiant was vulnerable to frontal attack, and the squadron started to have heavy losses of aircraft and crew.
