World War 2 Secret Missions: Brave & Daring Secret Missions of WW2 (Holocaust, Soldier Stories, Auschwitz, Hitler, Concentration Camps, Military Missions, Military Strategy)

by Raymond Jennings

World War II was much more than just a war among several nations. With the war came new forms of warfare, covert missions, special operations, sabotage, destruction, and espionage and so on among the enemies.

This resulted in some of the most unconventional, creative and ingenious operations that played an important role in shaping the course of the war. There were several secret missions and raids that were carried out between the Allies and the Axis powers during the Second World War.

Listed in this book are just few of the several raids and covert missions that the war gave birth to. This book is written in such a...

Pirates: Blackbeard - The Pirate Terror of the Sea

by Patrick Auerbach

The pirate Blackbeard is perhaps the most notorious of sea robbers.

Blackbeard was British, probably born before 1690. His real name was thought to be Edward Teach. As a young seaman, he had served on a British privateer that was based in Jamaica, an island in the Caribbean. Privateers were privately owned, armed ships hired by governments during time of war. The privateers' mission was to attack the ships of the enemy. Queen Anne of Britain allowed Teach's privateer to plunder French and Spanish ships during the War of the Spanish Succession and to keep stolen goods. By war's end, Teach had become an experienced sea robber. He then joined a group of fierce Caribbean pirates.

Soon the cunning, fearless Teach became captain of his own ship. A ship he had stolen! He...

The Sand Creek Narrative: A Rebuttal

by Ronald V Rockwell

A discussion of the attack(massacre) carried out by John M Chivington on the village of Cheyenne Chief Black Kettle and Arapahoe Chief Left Hand at Sand Creek in Colorado Territory on 11/29/1864. The author provides a sketch of the history of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe tribes in present-day Colorado and Kansas pre-Sand Creek and post-Sand Creek up to Custer's attack at Washita in November 1868. Specifically, the author examines the narrative published by the Joint Committee for the Conduct of War concluding its investigation of the attack. The author refutes many of the claims made by this congressional body as extremely biased and, in some cases, highly inaccurate to the point of outright falsehoods.Witness testimony is examined and falsehoods and contradictions laid bare.

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel ...

So here I am writing another book.

I’ll be truthful this one is going to shock you. It will make you think uncomfortably about your friends – and see them in a new light. After reading this I doubt if you will ever trust anyone again. Every time you go out, every time you meet people all you will see is dishonesty.

That’s right, dishonesty.

1918: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 Part 5

by Melina Druga

“And yet, despite the bedlam, the incomparable scenes of joy, there were many solemn scenes. Sober garbed women, whose husbands and sons would never return, stood on the curb, a strange mingling of emotions stirring in them. Old men saw the hand of God in the demonstration, and from hospital cots of pain bed-ridden soldiers raised their wracked bodies to listen, and smiles of contentment sank back on their pillows – ‘thank God, after all, our sacrifices have not been in vain’.”The war ends on Nov. 11, 1918, causing spontaneous and boisterous parties to erupt in cities throughout the United States and Canada. Joy follows the deadliest month in the Spanish Flu Pandemic, a pandemic that would kill more Americans and Canadians than the war.This book is for anyone who has an interes...

Hacksaw Ridge : The True Story of Desmond Doss

According to Doss's account in a documentary film titled "The Contentious Objector", as he rescued soldiers one-by-one, he breathed into the air with each go-around, "Lord, please help me get one more."The modest man of faith claims to have saved 50 wounded soldiers from certain death. His comrades claim that he saved 100. President Harry S. Truman presented him with the Congressional Medal of Honor upon his return to the United States, for his heroics on Okinawa, and the citation credits him with saving 75 lives, splitting the difference."From a human standpoint, I shouldn't be here to tell the story," said Doss in an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "No telling how many times the Lord has spared my life." During World War II, 16,112,556 American soldiers served their country a...

The True Story of Andersonville Prison: A Defense of Major Henry Wirz

by James Madison Page

During the Civil War, James Madison Page was a prisoner in different places in the South. Seven months of that time was spent at Andersonville. While there he became well acquainted with Major Wirz, or Captain Wirz, as he then ranked. Page takes the stand that Captain Wirz was unjustly held responsible for the hardship and mortality of Andersonville. It was his belief that the Federal authorities must share the blame for these things with the Confederates, since they well knew the inability of the Confederates to meet the reasonable wants of their prisoners of war, as they lacked a supply for their own needs, and since the Federal authorities failed to exercise a humane policy in the exchange of those captured in battle.The writer, "with malice toward none and charity for all," denies cons...
