📒The Odd Couple ✍ Jack Gallaway
📝The Odd Couple Book Synopsis : Military heroes are larger than life and General Douglas MacArthur assiduously built his image as a warrior hero through skilful media manipulation. In complete contrast to this flamboyant American was General Thomas Blamey. Where MacArthur's actual military experience was limited, the feisty Aussie had taken part in the Gallipoli landings. Blamey had also played a major role in the big battles on the Western Front. In this provocative account, Jack Gallaway demonstrates conclusively that Blamey - to his cost - never matched MacArthur's supreme ability to generate personal and political advantage through tireless self-promotion.

📒Sweet Pea At War ✍ William Generous
📝Sweet Pea at War Book Synopsis : "Few ships in American history have had as illustrious a history as the heavy cruiser USS Portland (CA-33), affectionately known by her crew as 'Sweet Pea.' With the destructionof most of the U.S. battleship fleet at Pearl Harbor, cruisers such as Sweet Pea carried the biggest guns the Navy possessed for nearly a year after the start of World War II. Sweet Pea at War describes in harrowing detail how Portland and her sisters protected the precious carriers and held the line against overwhelming Japanese naval strength. Portland was instrumental in the dramatic American victories at the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Battle of Midway, and the naval battle of Guadalcanal--conflicts that historians regard as turning points in the Pacific war. She rescued nearly three thousand sailors from sunken ships, some of them while she herself was badly damaged. Only a colossal hurricane ended her career, but she sailed home from that, too. Based on extensive research in official documents and interviews with members of the ship's crew, Sweet Pea at War recounts from launching to scrapping the history of USS Portland, demonstrating that she deserves to be remembered as one of the most important ships in U.S. naval history.
📒Empires At War ✍ Francis Pike
📝Empires at War Book Synopsis : Asia - with four billion people, almost two-thirds of the world’s population, a huge landmass and the fastest-growing economies - has in the past decade transformed the geopolitical global balance. Empires at War gives a dramatic narrative account of how this ‘Modern Asia’ came into being. Taking the bombing of Hiroshima on 6th August 1945 as its starting point, Francis Pike chronicles the modern fortunes of fourteen Asian countries. The iconic figures of post-World War II Asia - Mao, Gandhi, Nehru, Ho Chi Minh, Kim Il Sung, General MacArthur and Lord Mountbatten - figure prominently but so also do a great many lesser-known but pivotal figures. Francis Pike weaves the dramatic events and episodes of the region - the great battles between American and Soviet-backed forces in Korea and Vietnam but also episodes such as Indian ‘Partition’, Japan’s ‘Lost Decade’, Indonesia’s ‘Year of Living Dangerously’ and Cambodia’s ‘Killing Fields’ - into a coherent whole, which forms the essential guide to the history of modern Asia.

📒The United States At War ✍ John C. Super
📝The United States at War Book Synopsis : The United States was forged as a nation in a war, and through its long history, it has repeatedly had to go back to war to protect its independence and the freedoms on which it was founded. Although war runs counter to the democratic principles of the United States, it is an unavoidable central theme of American history. The United States at War addresses this theme by offering compact surveys of the most important military conflicts in which the United States has been involved--from the Revolutionary War through the Iraq War of 2003. The two-volume set's 177 essays examine these conflicts from a variety of perspectives, ranging from detailed discussions of individual battles to overviews of the broader ramifications of the conflicts.
