World War II

  • Silent Heroesby Sherri Greene Ottis

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In the early years of World War II, it was an amazing feat for an Allied airman shot down over occupied Europe to make it back to England. By 1943, however, pilots and crewmembers, supplied with "escape kits," knew they had a 50 percent chance of evading capture and returning home. An estimated 12,000 French civilians helped make this possible. More... more...

  • Diary of a Disasterby Robin Higham

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    On October 28, 1940, the Italian army under Benito Mussolini invaded Greece. The British had insisted on guaranteeing Greek and Turkish neutrality, despite the fact that Greece was never more than a limited campaign in an unlimited war as far as they were concerned. The British, however, were never quite sure that Greece was not their last foothold... more...

  • Taps For A Jim Crow Armyby Phillip McGuire; Benjamin Quarles; Bernard C. Nalty

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Many black soldiers serving in the U.S. Army during World War II hoped that they might make permanent gains as a result of their military service and their willingness to defend their country. They were soon disabused of such illusions. Taps for a Jim Crow Army is a powerful collection of letters written by black soldiers in the 1940s to various... more...

  • The Nazi Impact on a German Villageby Walter Rinderle; Bernard Norling

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Many scholars have tried to assess Adolf Hitler's influence on the German people, usually focusing on university towns and industrial communities, most of them predominately Protestant or religiously mixed. This work by Walter Rinderle and Bernard Norling, however, deals with the impact of the Nazis on Oberschopfheim, a small, rural, overwhelmingly... more...

  • Detroit And The "Good War"by Jr. Dominic J. Capeci

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Edward J. Jeffries Jr., was elected mayor of Detroit in 1937 and for a decade led the city through a period of race riots, union turmoil, and unprecedented growth. Jeffries's circle of friends was made up primarily of newspaper reporters who shared his interests and lifestyle. Devoted to family, they nevertheless worked long hours, smoked heavily,... more...

  • Draftee Divisionby John Sloan Brown

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The involuntary soldiers of an unmilitary people such were the forces that American military planners had to pit against hardened Axis veterans, yet prewar unpreparedness dictated that whole divisions of such men would go to war under the supervision of tiny professional cadres. Much to his surprise and delight, Army Chief of Staff General George... more...

  • Yanks Over Europeby Jerome Klinkowitz

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Contrasts between fighter combat and the bombers' war support Klinkowitz's belief that notions of the air war were determined by one's position in it. He extends his thesis by showing the vastly different style of air war described by veterans of the North African and Mediterranean campaigns and concludes by studying the effects of such combat on... more...

  • Bitter Legacyby Richard C. Lukas

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In this most timely book, Richard C. Lukas offers the historical perspective that any reader, scholar, or layman needs to grasp the political turmoil in Poland in the decades after World War II. Bitter Legacy is the first major analysis of Polish-American relations from the Potsdam Conference through the Polish elections of 1947, the critical period... more...

  • Shooting the Pacific Warby Thayer Soule

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Thayer Soule couldn't believe his orders. As a junior officer with no military training or indoctrination and less than ten weeks of active duty behind him, he had been assigned to be photographic officer for the First Marine Division. The Corps had never had a photographic division before, much less a field photographic unit. But Soule accepted the... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    A unique chronicle of the war from the perspective of a sensitive twenty-four-year-old sergeant who wrote for the Army's in-house paper, Yank , the Army Weekly and a tale of the South Pacific that will not soon be forgotten.
