📒Storm Over Leyte ✍ John Prados
📝Storm Over Leyte Book Synopsis : The story of the Battle of Leyte Gulf in World War II—the greatest naval battle in history. As Allied ships prepared for the invasion of the Philippine island of Leyte, every available warship, submarine and airplane was placed on alert while Japanese admiral Kurita Takeo stalked Admiral William F. Halsey’s unwitting American armada. It was the beginning of the epic Battle of Leyte Gulf—the greatest naval battle in history. In Storm Over Leyte, acclaimed historian John Prados gives readers an unprecedented look at both sides of this titanic naval clash, demonstrating that, despite the Americans’ overwhelming superiority in firepower and supplies, the Japanese achieved their goal, inflicting grave damage on U.S. forces. And for the first time, readers will have access to the naval intelligence reports that influenced key strategic decisions on both sides. Drawing upon a wealth of untapped sources—U.S. and Japanese military records, diaries, declassified intelligence reports and postwar interrogation transcripts—Prados offers up a masterful narrative of naval conflict on an epic scale.

📒Rendezvous By Submarine ✍ Travis Ingham
📝Rendezvous By Submarine Book Synopsis : Includes the Second World War In The Philippines Illustration Pack - 237 maps, plans and photos. “This is the story of the man who—at the time of the fall of Manila—was in charge of naval docks there, who escaped to the United States and in Washington helped formulate the whole plan for guerilla warfare. The results of his careful planning, of the bringing of “‘the aid’” so long awaited by the nucleus on the Islands—Filipinos, un-surrendered soldiers—arms, ammunition, medicines;—of the coordination of all unrelated guerilla movements;—of the “‘salt water taxi’” (submarine) equipment missions;—of the installations of coast watcher and radio stations; of the evacuation of American and Allied personnel and civilian population; of his discovery of guerilla initiative, efficiency and versatility; of the hide and seek of non-combat, ambush tactics, and the promotion of defensive to offensive strategy; all this eventually came into its own with D-Day on Leyte, October 1944. A story of military and morale building that paid dividends to our advantage, told with the flourish and zest it deserves.”-Kirkus Reviews
📒The Storm Of War ✍ Andrew Roberts
📝The Storm of War Book Synopsis : On 2 August 1944, in the wake of the complete destruction of the German Army Group Centre in Belorussia, Winston Churchill mocked Adolf Hitler in the House of Commons by the rank he had reached in the First World War. 'Russian success has been somewhat aided by the strategy of Herr Hitler, of Corporal Hitler,' Churchill jibed. 'Even military idiots find it difficult not to see some faults in his actions.' Andrew Roberts's previous book Masters and Commanders studied the creation of Allied grand strategy; Beating Corporal Hitler now analyses how Axis strategy evolved. Examining the Second World War on every front, Roberts asks whether, with a different decision-making process and a different strategy, the Axis might even have won. Were those German generals who blamed everything on Hitler after the war correct, or were they merely scapegoating their former Führer once he was safely beyond defending himself? In researching this uniquely vivid history of the Second World War Roberts has walked many of the key battlefield and wartime sites of Russia, France, Italy, Germany and the Far East. The book is full of illuminating sidelights on the principle actors that bring their characters and the ways in which they reached decisions into fresh focus.
