They were young, brash, highly skilled and fearless. And they were deadly. Those warriors of the Second Marine Division, who smashed the elite troops of the Japanese Empire between 1942 and 1945, were the ones who fired the first shots and the last shots of the ground offensive in the Pacific theater. They stormed ashore in the Solomons, Tarawa, Saipan, Tinian and Okinawa. A few were professionals, but most were farm boys, ranchers, college students and tough inner-city kids. The core group were deer hunters from the North, elk hunters from the West, squirrel hunters from the South and grouse ... View more info

The Antelope Valley is located in the Southern California high desert, in the western portion of the Mojave Desert, approximately sixty miles northeast of Los Angeles. Military use of the northern Antelope Valley began in 1933 when Colonel Henry "Hap" Arnold, Commander of March Field at Riverside, transferred a small detachment of men to the area to set up a small bombing and gunnery range. The base was in full swing by the end of 1941 and known as Muroc Gunnery and Bombing Range (changed in the 1950s to Edwards Air Force Base in honor of Captain Glen W. Edwards).

The answer is contained in this book about life in the small New York State village of Brewster in the Town of Southeast and the County of Putnam.

Memories of the horrors of war are often sealed forever in the minds of the participants. Alabama Bomber Boys is the story of some sixty World War II veterans who, after six decades, opened their minds to tell today's generation, especially our youth, of their horrendous experiences in four engine bombers in the frigid skies over Hitler's Europe. Through previously unpublished oral and written accounts they discuss the pre-war Alabama culture from which they came, the culture in Britain where they lived and from which they flew, and the transition of the Eighth Air Force from an impotent bombe...

Stanley A. Hardin, born October 19, 1916, was living in Pajarito, New Mexico when he joined the Army Air Corps. He was sent with the Thirty-Fifth Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron to Kunming Air Base in China. Hardin was returning to his base at Nanning when he was forced down. Miraculously, Lt. Hardin landed his P-38 safely. Soldiers approached the plane. It was a relief to see the white sixteen-point star on their caps instead of the red rising sun of the Imperial Japanese Army. Aided by the courageous Chinese people, Hardin was able to return to his base after about a month as their hono... View more info

The Other Side of War is not a story of battles and heroism-fate stepped in more than once to keep "Fuzzy" out of those situations. However, fate did take him on the greatest adventure of his life. "Fuzzy," as he was called (because it was easier to pronounce than Fazekas), was in the USN Hospital Corps for 27 months during World War II, and for 16 months as a reservist during the Korean War. He was overseas for 21 of his 27 months in the navy during World War II. (In both the European and Pacific theatres.) Travel with "Fuzzy" to "Boot Camp," to O.G.U. and Grea... View more info

A warm but extremely accurate account of "home front" life in a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore during the War. Written as a first-person account through the eyes of a boy with an exceptional memory and a curiosity for detail, this account is invaluable for the historian and any others with an interest in how things actually were at the time—how gasoline and food rationing worked, what it was like to have a garrison of American Infantry suddenly thrust into the middle of the peaceful and isolated life of a small town on America's east coast, and how the people adjusted to...

Florida held a unique position in World War II, an involvement that went far beyond the enrollment of 250,000 young men in the Armed Services. The Sunshine State was more totally immersed in World War II than any other state, not only because of its precarious geographical location as a peninsula between the Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean with seaports to facilitate shipping, but also because of ideal climate and flat land that would serve well as bases for military personnel. Indeed, Florida would be called upon to play a highly significant role unlike any other in the United States. The author,... View more info
