📝The Forgotten 500 Book Synopsis : The astonishing, never before told story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II—when the OSS set out to recover more than 500 airmen trapped behind enemy lines in Yugoslavia... During a bombing campaign over Romanian oil fields, hundreds of American airmen were shot down in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Local Serbian farmers and peasants risked their own lives to give refuge to the soldiers while they waited for rescue, and in 1944, Operation Halyard was born. The risks were incredible. The starving Americans in Yugoslavia had to construct a landing strip large enough for C-47 cargo planes—without tools, without alerting the Germans, and without endangering the villagers. And the cargo planes had to make it through enemy airspace and back—without getting shot down themselves. Classified for over half a century for political reasons, the full account of this unforgettable story of loyalty, self-sacrifice, and bravery is now being told for the first time ever. The Forgotten 500 is the gripping, behind-the-scenes look at the greatest escape of World War II. “Amazing [and] riveting.”—James Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of Flags of Our Fathers

📝De vergeten wetenschappen Book Synopsis : Summary: "Alfa's schrijven de geschiedenis, maar bèta's maken de geschiedenis", liet Ronald Plasterk zich eens ontvallen. Deze uitspraak toont aan hoe onzichtbaar de grote doorbraken in de alfawetenschappen zijn. Toch hebben hun ontdekkingen en inzichten de wereld veranderd. Hoewel er zelden sprake is van wetten, zijn er wel verbanden, structuren en regels te vinden in taal, literatuur, muziek en kunst. Rens Bod laat zien hoe vanaf de Oudheid alfawetenschappers uit India, China, Afrika en Europa zijn omgesprongen met hun materiaal en welke patronen zij hebben gevonden. Hun bevindingen hebben de maatschappij ingrijpend beïnvloed: de ontdekking van een grammatica voor het Sanskriet leidde tot de eerste programmeertalen, en de ontdekking van harmonische samenklanken resulteerde in het ooit dominante wereldbeeld 'de harmonie der sferen'.

📝Vergeten Book Synopsis : Special agent John Puller is de beste van zijn vak. Namens de US Army’s Criminal Investigative Division – ACID– onderzoekt hij zware misdaden waarbij Amerikaanse militairen betrokken zijn, als slachtoffer of als dader. Maar nu krijgt hij met een zaak te maken die hem persoonlijk raakt: de onfortuinlijke dood van een oude vrouw in het stadje Paradise, aan de Golfkust van Florida. De plaatselijke politie doet de zaak af als een ongeluk, een ongelukkige val met een fatale afloop. Maar vlak voor haar dood stuurde Betsy Puller Simon, de tante van John, een brief aan zijn vader. Een brief waarin ze schreef dat er zich in het ogenschijnlijk vreedzame Paradise, waar toeristen en rijke gepensioneerden van zonovergoten stranden genieten, vreemde zaken voordoen. Naarmate zijn onderzoek vordert, raakt Puller er steeds meer van overtuigd dat de dood van zijn tante geen ongeluk was. Dat er achter de façade van wuivende palmen en paradijselijke zandstranden een smerig zaakje schuilgaat. En dat de betrokkenen tot werkelijk alles bereid zijn om de waarheid te verdoezelen...

đź“ťThe Secret War in the Balkans Book Synopsis : World War II was the most important event of the twentieth century. Sixty three nations took part, engaging more than 100 million soldiers, sailors, and airmen. All of the major campaigns of that war have been thoroughly covered in print and film with one exception, the secret war in the Balkans. While raids by bombers and fighter attacks were routinely reported by both military and civilian news media, the nocturnal activities of the 60th Troop Carrier Group supplying the Balkan guerrillas remained "Top Secret." Beginning in March 1944, the 60th carried 7,000 tons of weapons and equipment to secret drop and landing zones in Axis-held territory in the Balkans. With this equipment, the guerrillas tied down half a million Axis troops prior to the D-Day landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944. What if the 60th Troop Carrier Group or the guerrillas had not done their job? Adolf Hitler would have been able to move eight or ten divisions to western France prior to D-Day. No on can say with certainty, but this writer's judgment is that the landings may well have failed. At the very least, the war would have been much longer and much more destructive. The importance of the Balkan supply drops to Allied victory in Europe has never been adequately recognized. The Secret War in the Balkans provides this heretofore missing chapter in the story of World War II.

📝The Forgotten Depression Book Synopsis : James Grant’s story of America’s last governmentally untreated depression: A bible for conservative economists, this “carefully researched history…makes difficult economic concepts easy to understand, and it deftly mixes major events with interesting vignettes” (The Wall Street Journal). In 1920-1921, Woodrow Wilson and Warren G. Harding met a deep economic slump by seeming to ignore it, implementing policies that most twenty-first century economists would call backward. Confronted with plunging prices, wages, and employment, the government balanced the budget and, through the Federal Reserve, raised interest rates. No “stimulus” was administered, and a powerful, job-filled recovery was under way by late 1921. Yet by 1929, the economy spiraled downward as the Hoover administration adopted the policies that Wilson and Harding had declined to put in place. In The Forgotten Depression, James Grant “makes a strong case against federal intervention during economic downturns” (Pittsburgh Tribune Review), arguing that the well-intended White House-led campaign to prop up industrial wages helped turn a bad recession into America’s worst depression. He offers examples like this, and many others, as important strategies we can learn from the earlier depression and apply today and to the future. This is a powerful response to the prevailing notion of how to fight recession, and “Mr. Grant’s history lesson is one that all lawmakers could take to heart” (Washington Times).

đź“ťThe Forgotten Centuries Book Synopsis : The Forgotten Centuries draws together seventeen essays in which historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists attempt for the first time to account for approximately two centuries that are virtually missing from the history of a large portion of the American South. Using the chronicles of the Spanish soldiers and adventurers, the contributors survey the emergence and character of the chiefdoms of the Southeast. In addition, they offer new scholarly interpretations of the expeditions of Lucas Vasquez de Ayllon from 1521 to 1526, Panfilo de Narvaez in 1528, and most particularly Hernando de Soto in 1539-43, as well as several expeditions conducted between 1597 and 1628. The essays in this volume address three other connected topics. Describing some of the major chiefdoms--Apalachee, the "Oconee" Province, Cofitachequi, and Coosa--the essays undertake to lay bare the social principles by which they operated. They also explore the major forces of structural change that were to transform the chiefdoms: disease and depopulation, the Spanish mission system, and the English deerskin and slave trades. And finally, they examine how these forces shaped the history of several subsequent southeastern Indian societies, including the Apalachees, Powhatans, Creeks, and Choctaws. These societies, the so-called native societies of the Old South, were, in fact, new ones formed in the crucible fired by the economic expansion of the early modern world.

📝The Forgotten Conservative Book Synopsis : Grover Cleveland is the forgotten conservative: a man of dignity, integrity, and courage often overlooked by the history books. Historian and author John Pafford reveals a president who deserves more attention. Cleveland might not have presided over deeply troubled times, but he set a standard for principled leadership in office that is especially relevant today. In The Forgotten Conservative: Rediscovering Grover Cleveland, Pafford tells the story of how Cleveland, as the mayor of Buffalo, fought corruption and eliminated taxpayer funding of projects that he considered outside the purview of government. Cleveland was nominated as the clean candidate for governor of New York in the era when Tammany Hall still pulled the strings of many politicians. Once he became governor, he fought hard for civil service reform, rejecting the “spoils system” that had created so much corruption in state government. A man of strong faith and principles, he brought his reform mentality with him to the White House. Today, Wisconsin's Scott Walker and New Jersey's Chris Christie are making headlines with their efforts to reform the civil service behemoth and clean up the government of their states. Perhaps one of their greatest leadership examples should be none other than the forgotten conservative, Grover Cleveland. As president, Cleveland was fiercely pro-business, promoting many policies that would set conservatives’ heads nodding today: eliminating subsidies, reducing tariffs, and tackling cronyism. He slimmed down the bloated civil service, and established a reputation of fairness and bipartisanship in his appointments, respecting members of both parties who did their work well. But most importantly, he was an example of a great leader, respected and remembered by all for his reputation for honesty, integrity, wisdom and hard work, setting a standard that remains to this day.
