World War II naval history has been discussed and examined from almost every possible angle. One story that has never been told in detail, however, is that of the U.S. Navy's little landing craft, tank (LCT). Even though they are known for landing on the beaches at Normandy, the LCTs were more than mere transports. In fact, the little craft had dedicated crews and participated in nearly all forms of naval warfare. Beachhead Normandy combines the history of LCT operations with a detailed look at the LCT 614, which landed at Omaha Beach under heavy fire. Tom Carter has gathered material from the U.S. Navy's archives, the National Archives, and personal stories from several members of the 614's crew, including the ship's skipper and second officer, to give readers a clear picture of the LCT's role in one of World War II's pivotal moments. He also analyzes the role of LCTs in the Pacific theater, including the 614's participation in the occupation of China while supporting the Marines'famed First Division. Drawing on both technical analyses and personal accounts by the actual participants, including the author's father, Beachhead Normandy is a rich and varied history of the key services these ships performed during and after World War II.

Tells the extraordinary story of septuagenarian Diana Barnato Walker. Born to great wealth, she chose to step beyond the chaperoned world of privilege, becoming a wartime pilot in the Air Transport Auxiliary, and going on to break the speed record for women pilots, in 1963 flying a Lightning at 1262 mph. The book gives a fascinating insight into both the glamorous world of the very rich, and the thrills and hazards of wartime flying. It takes the reader into the daily life of the Air Transport Auxiliary, which delivered RAF aircraft to UK bases in World War II, sharing the dangers, cameraderie, and sorrows.

"Combat operations and movements at night became increasingly prevalent as the war in the East dragged on. Initially untrained for such combat, the German Army developed night combat tactics and techniques out of necessity"--Publisher's website.

volumes : illustrations, maps ; 24 cm.
"The first of two volumes that look at military operations -- the connecting link between specific battlefields and broader strategic goals -- against the German army during a pivotal year in World War II. Focusing here on those operations designed and executed on the Western Front by the Allied forces of the U.S., Great Britain, and Canada, Dick examines how and why the successful invasion of and breakout from Normandy foundered before a well-defended Wehrmacht, all within the context of the combatants' military thought and leadership, battlefield experiences, and logistical realities." -- Provided by publisher.
