 THE CACTUS AIR FORCE: Air War Over Guadalcanal

THE CACTUS AIR FORCE: Air War Over Guadalcanal

For 40 years from 1961, the late Eric Hammel interviewed more than 150 American participants in the air campaign at Cactus – the code name for the island Guadalcanal. These interviews offer first-person accounts, including the junior officers and enlisted men whose stories and memories were not part of the official history. The battle of Guadalcanal was the first offensive operation undertaken by the U.S. and its allies in the Pacific War. The three months of air battles between August 20, 1942, when the first Marine air unit arrived on the island, and November 15, when the last enemy attempt to retake the island was defeated, proved to be a disaster for Japanese air and naval power, which experienced losses from which they could never recover. $22.00 USD

Covers the Bergisel and the Tyrolean Kaiserjager Museum, which preserves the history of the Kaiserjager. Other chapters show how the Alt-Kaiserjager Club, Kaiserjagerbund, and the original Tyrolean Kaiserjager music have kept the memory of the regiments alive for over a hundred years and what important role the Austrian Federal Army plays in maintaining tradition today.

 A FINE OPPORTUNITY LOST: Longstreet's East Tennessee Campaign, November 1863 – April 1864

A FINE OPPORTUNITY LOST: Longstreet's East Tennessee Campaign, November 1863 – April 1864

James Longstreet, who Robert E. Lee called his 'Old Warhorse,' and most of his 1st Corps were dispatched to reinforce Braxton Bragg's ill-starred Army of Tennessee in the Western Theater in 1863. Longstreet helped win the decisive victory at Chickamauga and drove the Union Army of the Cumberland back into Chattanooga. For a host of reasons, some military and some political, Bragg dispatched Longstreet and his troops to East Tennessee, where Union commander Ambrose Burnside waited for him. The heavy Confederate presence threatened political turmoil for Federal forces and could cut off Burnside's ability to reinforce Chattanooga. Details how these two old foes from the Virginia theater found themselves transplanted to unfamiliar ground, and the battles that transpired in East Tennessee and Chattanooga. Contains 140 images and seven maps. $17.00 USD.

 THE END OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR: Alicante 1939

THE END OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR: Alicante 1939

Discusses the role that the port of Alicante played at the end of the Spanish Civil War. Starts by explaining how a rebellion of Republican officers, led by Colonel Segismundo Casado, attempted to thwart Juan Negrin's plan to withdraw to Alicante. Originally a remote, quiet port, Alicante became increasingly significant as attention focused on defeated Republicans toward the end of the war. Tens of thousands of refugees descended on Alicante in the hope of rescue by French and British ships that had been promised but which failed to materialize. Discusses how, despite no aid from British and French governments, Captain Archibald Dickson of the Stanbrook ditched his cargo and transported 3,000 refugees to safety in North Africa. However, when the Generalisimo issued a communique declaring that the war was over, surrounded and captured the bulk of the Republicans, and marched them to an improvised internment camp known as the Campo de los Almendros (Field of Almond Trees). They were then transferred to the infamous concentration camp at Albatera to share the fate of defeated Republicans across Spain and to undergo the program of ideological cleansing of the new fascist authorities. Contains 40 mono illustrations. $43.00 USD
