By June 1941, Germany´s war machine looked to be unstoppable. The Nazi blitzkrieg had taken Poland, France, and Holland with shocking speed. The Luftwaffe had bombed London, while German U-boats wrought havoc on Allied shipping on the Atlantic. And yet, as James Holland shows at the start of The Allies Strike Back, 1941-1943 - the second volume in his magisterial narrative of World War II in the West - cracks were already appearing in Germany´s apparent invincibility. Shortages of food and materiel were becoming critical. And, having failed to defeat Britain, Adolf Hitler fatefully pivoted east to invade the Soviet Union - territory he felt compelled to conquer for Germany´s protection - and on June 22, 1941 precipitated the largest clash of arms the world had ever seen. Built for speed and quick conquest, German forces by that fall were bogged down in a horrible war of attrition that blunted the Nazi momentum. The Allies Strike Back offers fascinating new perspective on the critical middle years in World War II´s western theatre, as the advantage between Axis and Allied forces swung back and forth on the Atlantic and eastern front, and in north Africa and Europe. Acclaimed historian James Holland has spent years conducting original research and interviews, mining newly available archives, visiting battlefields and uncovering letters and diaries previously unread. Acknowledging that strategy and tactics have been the focus of previous histories, he gives equal space to the logistics and supply of men and materiel without which no war can be fought. Allied and Axis leaders criss-cross Holland´s narrative, but he also memorably introduces listeners to heretofore unknown participants: Sgt. Ralph Schaps, who experienced the Louisiana Maneuvers that propelled him into Europe; Colonel Hermann Balck, in command of a German panzer regiment in Africa; U-boat captain Teddy Suhren, operating against Allied shipping in the Atlantic; Billy Drake, squadron 1.

A Separate Little War:The BANFF Coastal Command Strike Wing Versus the Kreigsmarine and Luftwaffe 1944 - 1945 Andrew Bird
France, May 1940. Seated in the cockpit of his Hurricane, Sergeant George Yeoman - young, eager, and innocent in the ways of war - is on his way to join his first operational squadron. Meanwhile, the German Panzers advance unchecked through the Ardennes, and as the Allied bombers plead to strike at them, the Luftwaffe is already set to launch a decisive blow. Disaster beckons, and Yeoman and No. 505 Squadron soon find themselves courting death in a series of increasingly desperate sorties as the Allied army begins its retreat towards Dunkirk. There are only a handful of them against the might of Hitler’s war machine, and with each sortie the ranks of the Squadron grow ever more depleted. The odds stacked against them are hopeless.... 1.

This monograph of the most famous dive bomber of World War II focuses on the design and combat operations of the late marks of the Stuka: the Ju 87D dive bomber and strike aircraft and the Ju 87G tank buster. In addition to the detailed description of the design, the book covers combat operations of the Luftwaffe units equipped with the D and G models, as well as the biographies of the most prominent aircrews who flew those aircraft in combat. The text is supplemented by original photographs and 3D drawings showing details of the design.REVIEWS ...does a great job of covering the initial design and development of the aircraft as well as telling the story of all the prototypes and of its use in battle. We also get the story of how the plane was used by allied nations such as Romania, Italy, Bulgaria and Hungary. This is part of Kagero´s 3D series so a good third of the book has their excellent 3D illustrations, concentrating on the two major variations of the aircraft. In addition to overall images, we get a number of profile drawings showing the difference between variants. detail sections as well. In all, it is a superb volume and one that anyone with an interest in this plane should have on their shelves.Model MadnessMarek RysMarek Rys
To all appearances, Anthony ´´Tony´´ Korkuc was just another casualty of World War II. A gunner on a B-17 Flying Fortress, Korkuc was lost on a bombing mission over Germany, and his family believed that his body had never been recovered. But when they learned in 1995 that Tony was actually buried at Arlington National Cemetery, his nephew Bob Korkuc set out on a seven-year quest to learn the true fate of an uncle he never knew. Finding a Fallen Hero is a compelling story that blends a wartime drama with a primer on specialized research. Author Bob Korkuc initially set out to learn how his Uncle Tony came to rest at Arlington. In the process, he also unraveled the mystery of what occurred over the skies of Germany half a century ago. Korkuc dug up military documents and private letters and interviewed people in both the United States and Germany. He tracked down surviving crewmembers and even found the brother of the Luftwaffe pilot who downed the B-17. A gripping chronicle of exhaustive research, Finding a Fallen Hero will strike a chord with any listener who has lost a family member to war. And it will inspire others to satisfy their own unanswered questions. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Travis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/069180/bk_acx0_069180_sample.mp3.
