Panzer Army Africa - First edition

2008, ISBN: 9780354010566

Paperback, Hardcover, ID: 694461475

London 1994, Collins, UK presumed first edition, hardbound in dj, 6 x 9 , Fine/Fine condition, 384 pages, bibliog., index., illustrations. --------------------------------The Second World War marked a turning point in relations between the sexes; it heralded, in fact, the beginning of the permissive society and the women's movement. John Costello charts the change in roles, the watershed in attitudes, that altered for ever how men and women view each other. In 'total war' the general mobilization of men into uniform led to recruitment of women into areas unthought of before: back-breaking jobs in factories and shipyards, running transport and working on the land. Women joined the Allied Forces in their thousands, too, and Russia even sent women into combat. It was on the Axis side that conscription of women was delayed – until the very end of the war – and this, Costello argues, surely contributed to defeat. =---------------------------At last a woman's place was not merely in the home. The emancipation of the 'girl back home', the prevailing feeling that `tomorrow we may die', the loneliness and sexual hunger of thousands of servicemen abroad, the ecstatic welcome given by a city to its liberators – all played a part in a new sexual freedom that brought in its wake, throughout Europe and the Far East, an epidemic of VD, a large number of illegitimate births and, of course, thousands of marriages made and broken. Numerous personal testimonies of those who lived and fought through the greatest conflict in human history support the truth of A. L. Rowse's comment: 'There is a wide-ranging association of war with sexuality, complex, intricate, intimate and at every level., Edison, NJ: Book Sales, Inc., 2005. First Edition; First Printing. .

In late 1941, President Roosevelt agonized over the rapid advances of the Japanese forces in Asia, they seemed unstoppable. He foresaw their intentions of taking India and linking up with the two other Axis Powers, Germany and Italy, in an attempt to conquer the Eastern Hemisphere. US naval forces had been severely surprised and diminished in Pearl Harbor and the army was outnumbered and ill-prepared to take on the invading hoards. One of his few options was to form a defensive line on the eastern side of the Patkai and Himalayan Ranges, there he could look for support from the Chinese and Burmese. It was to be the only defence to a Japanese invasion of India.To support and supply these troops, fighting in hostile jungle terrain where overland routes had been cut off, he desperately needed to set up an air supply from Eastern India. His problem was lack of aircraft and experienced pilots to fly the dangerous 'Hump, over the world's highest mountains. Hence came Operation Seven Alpha, a plan to enlist the aircraft, DC-3s, and pilots, veterans of World War One, of American Airlines. This newly formed Squadron would fly these medium-range aircraft in a series of long-distance hops across the Pacific and Southern Asia to the Assam Valley in India. They would then create and operate the vital supply route carrying arms, ammunition and food Eastward to the Allied bases and return with wounded personnel. This is the story of this little-known operation in the early days of the Burma Campaign.This book is based on the true experiences of those who were involved and is a fitting tribute to the bravery and inventiveness of a band of men who answered their country's desperate call at the outset of the war against Japan in Asia.. 1st Edition.

It is April 1943, and Marine aviator Cletus Frade, Army demolitions wizard Anthony Pelosi, and communications expert David Ettinger are thrust again into the lethal nest of intrigue that is wartime Buenos Aires. A clandestine German vessel sets sail to resupply submarines in the South Atlantic...as a massive shipment of money earmarked for a postwar Reich makes its way to South America...and a coup designed to topple the government reaches critical mass. In the midst of it all, the German-ordered assassination of Cletus Frade's father demands only one response: revenge. Threading their way carefully between Axis and Allied sympathizers, and even between rival OSS and FBI factions, the three soldiers must strive their utmost not only to fulfill their missions - but just to stay alive. And for that, even their utmost may not be enough... Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; War; ISBN: 0330396862. ISBN/EAN: 9780330396868.
