<h1> Battle of the Atlantic - World War II</h1><br /><b>* * *Free BONUS Inside!* * *<br /><br />Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.</b><br /><br />Imagine a battlefield of three thousand square miles, with an enemy that was often invisible when it struck. Imagine a convoy of ships carrying vital supplies from North America to Great Britain, at the mercy of the deadly marauders under the water, waiting to attack them. The Battle of the Atlantic, the longest campaign of World War II, took place upon the Atlantic Ocean as the Allies traveled back and forth from North America to Great Britain with desperately needed oil, provisions, weapons, and supplies for the embattled forces fighting against Nazi Germany. The U-boats, the terror of the undersea, made those convoy journeys particularly precarious, especially after Germany’s Admiral Karl Dönitz developed his dreaded wolf pack strategy.<br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Threat of the German U-Boats<br />✓ Battleships and the Bismarck<br />✓ The Lend-Lease Program<br />✓ The Downfall of the U-boats<br />✓ The Codebreakers who Cracked the Enigma Code<br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />From the start of the war in September 1939 until its end in 1945, the Battle of the Atlantic was fought to keep the Germans from blockading the Atlantic Ocean. The efforts of those valiant seafarers would eventually make D-Day possible, but there were times when even Winston Churchill feared that the prowess of the U-boats would imperil the Allies in their battle against the Nazi menace that had conquered Western Europe. The bravery of the Allied naval crews, and the brilliance of the Bletchley Park codebreakers, prevented the Atlantic Ocean from becoming yet another victim of Nazi dominance.

Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

Mary Todd Lincoln is probably the most maligned of famous women in our nation's history. Now for the first time the true woman beneath that myth is presented in a warmly sympathetic biography based on new research. When the veil of legend surrounding her is torn aside, and entirely new picture of a woman and a marriage emerges.<br /><br /><i>"...This book is that new hearing in the case of Mary Lincoln. Its aim, however imperfectly accomplished, has been to go over the evidence, old and new, pro and con, to consider it afresh, and to come nearer the truth about Abraham Lincoln’s wife. But a biography should be more than a court trial; it should include portrayal of character. As far as lies within my power I have tried to restore, from tested historical material, the personality of Mary Lincoln".</i><br /><br />R.P.R.

The Huertgen Forest defenses of the Nazis were meticulously and diabolically planned. They, with the Ruhr River positions, constituted the Eastern-most section of the Siegfried system. Capture of Huertgen, followed by crossing the Ruhr would mean that the much vaunted German West Wall had been completely crushed.The Germans intended to use Huertgen not only as a defensive structure but also as an area from which to launch part of their Argonne offensive later.<br />Paul Boesch, leading “G” Company of the 121st Infantry through screaming shells and deadly small arms fire captured a vantage point on the edge of the town of Huertgen. There, completely surrounded, he demonstrated outstanding leadership. He and his depleted company hung onto this valuable conquest and their unconquerable determination gave a springboard from which the final attack was successfully launched.

<h2>Explore the Cruel History of the Trail of Tears</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />One of the darkest and cruelest chapters in the history of the United States occurred when the nation’s young government decided to remove the native peoples from their lands in the name of profit. <br /><br />Having helped settlers for hundreds of years, five Native American tribes found it increasingly more difficult to relate to and trust the country that had once acted as their allies. The native peoples had fought alongside the Americans to gain freedom from England, the nation that the colonists deemed oppressive and unfair. The native peoples acted as benefactors and teachers, helping the colonists to gain an advantage against an army that was far superior to the small forces that the colonists could muster. <br /><br />The new country owed a lot of its existence to the native peoples, yet the settlers, who were of European descent, did not see it that way. <br /><br /><h2>The following topics will be covered in this book:</h2><br /><ul><li>The Early Relationship</li><li>The Growth of Manifest Destiny</li><li>The Discovery of Gold and the Indian Removal Act</li><li>Peaceful Protests and a Push for Recognition</li><li>The People Versus the President</li><li>The Militia Force Removal</li><li>The Trail of Tears</li><li>Stories of Pain, Loss, and Love</li><li>Making a New Home</li><li>And a Great Deal More You Don't Want to Miss Out On!</li></ul><h2>Scroll to the top and download the book now to learn more about the Trail of Tears</h2>

<i>"AT 0830, September 15, 1944, the First Marine Division attacked the Japanese-held island of Peleliu in the Palau Islands and engaged an estimated 10,000 Japanese in one of the fiercest straggles of the war. I was in command of Company “K” ...In no sense is this hook the complete account of the Peleliu invasion. It is principally a story of my company and myself and what happened to us during a grim action of forty-eight hours’ duration. With one exception, I have used the real names of real persons".</i><br /><br />G.H.<br /><br /><br /><i>"...It is my belief that Captain George Hunt has told here a story which is important in the history of the United States Marines. It is not an official account, and Captain Hunt has not attempted to give an overall picture of grand strategy, nor even the complete story of Peleliu. He has, however, told in the simplest terms the story of his own company — a small force which suffered terrible casualties and fought against considerable odds to see a specific job through.<br />If this small unit, this small association of fighting men, had not done its job, there is no knowing what the results might have been in terms of casualties along an entire beach sector.<br />Captain Hunt has been awarded the Navy Cross as commander of a company of Marine riflemen on Peleliu.<br />This is a story of fighting men told by a fighting man".</i><br /><br />Alexander A.
