F4U Corsair Units of the Korean War Osprey Publishing Ltd
The definitive account of F-4 Corsair Units deployed in the Korean War, this book tells the story of the 26 US Navy Squadrons, most of which were carrier based, and the 6 Marine Corps F-4 squadrons that flew combat missions against the North Koreans. Drawing from a vast repository of personal interviews with F-4 pilots, the author paints a harrowing picture of the deadly combat of this often forgotten air war. Included in this volume is the story of Lt Guy Bordelon, the US Navy's sole ace of the Korean War, who flew an F4U-5N night-fighter against the night raiders sent up by the Korean Air force. Backing up the text is a vast number of previously unpublished private photographs that bring the stories of these pilots to life. Finally the book contains extensive appendices that detail every unit deployment by carrier, air group, Corsair model and tail code. Also included is a detailed list noting every Corsair lost in the war, with tail number, pilot, date of loss and the unit.

Wasted Years, Wasted Lives Volume 1 Helion & Company Limited
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Over the past several years, Ken Wharton, himself a former soldier, has been prolific in his coverage of the Troubles, which spread their tentacles far from the streets, and fields of Northern Ireland. Over 4,000 people died in or as a consequence of them and it cost the lives of over 1,300 British soldiers - a fact which is unacknowledged by the MOD - and the lives of over 300 policemen and women. This is Ken's sixth book about the period and he draws on meticulous and detailed research, first-hand testimony of the soldiers who trod the same streets as himself, and an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the near 30-year period of murder, violence and civil war. The first-hand accounts help us to understand and examine the fears of the young soldiers who patrolled the dangerous streets of the Ardoyne and New Lodge, of Andersonstown, Turf Lodge and Ballymurphy and of the Creggan in Londonderry and the Derrybeg in Newry. He looks at the Loyalist paramilitaries and treats their sectarianism and mindless murder with the same contempt with which he treats the Republicans. He does not mince words about the Irish-Americans and their political stooges in the US Government, judicial system and the ordinary '7th generation Irishmen of the American East Coast.' This is a book not just for soldiers, but for anyone who wishes to look back and try to understand the madness inflicted upon several generations of innocent Irish and British people. In years to come, historians - both social and military - will reflect on this period of insanity with a greater knowledge than hitherto. If you wish to know how it felt to be an innocent sectarian victim, or an off-duty soldier or policeman or a young lad from Leeds, Liverpool or London hard targeting through the Lower Falls, then this book is a must read.REVIEWS "Ken Wharton's remarkable work rolls on, a monumental feat of history writing."Patrick Bishop, bestselling author of Bomber Boys and 3 Para"The spirit of honour, brotherhood, superlative soldiering and true grit lives on in Ken Wharton's new volume about The Troubles. Read it - lest we forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice, fighting the scourge of terrorism across the water."Damien Lewis, bestselling author of Zero 6 Bravo and Firestrike 7/9"Ken Wharton captures the authentic voice of the British soldier at the height of what is generally known as the Irish Troubles but was in fact a war ... A master storyteller, he produces a rich and magnificent tapestry. Packed with new information and telling detail, Wasted Years is not just a gripping narrative but also an important contribution to military and Irish history."Toby Harnden, bestselling author of Bandit Country: The IRA and South Armagh and Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards & the Defining Story of Britain's War in Afghanistan"Nobody does Northern Ireland like Ken and nobody tries harder to tell the stories of themen that soldiered and died, policed and patrolled, cried and bled, or lived and wept on theEmerald Isle than he.Steven McLaughlin, bestselling author of Squaddie..". a powerful testament to the plain soldier of the British Army. That hero speaks out in these pages. He and she held the line during the dark years. Their victory, their courage and their humanity remind us that in human affairs, yes, sometimes the good guys really do win."Kevin Myers, bestselling author of Watching the Door: Cheating Death in Belfast in the 70s

Opis - Charyzmatyczny, obdarzony nieprzeciętną intuicją dziennikarz w pojedynku z naśladowcą Hansa Memlinga. Emil Żądło, który zrezygnował z pracy w policji na rzecz dziennikarstwa, przeżywa kryzys. Kryzys wieloraki: związany z pracą, z brakiem natchnienia na nowy artykuł, z finansami, z uczuciami, z życiem w ogóle... Za ostatnie pieniądze kupuje alkohol i papierosy, nie ma siły wstać z łóżka i wziąć się w garść, a na dodatek jego była żona utrudnia mu kontakty z synem i męczy o zaległe alimenty. Wszystko się zmienia, gdy któregoś razu w nocnym pubie spotyka córkę swojej starej sąsiadki, Dorotę. Młoda kobieta i jej narzeczony tej samej nocy zostają brutalnie zamordowani w niejasnych okolicznościach. Zaintrygowany Emil postanawia pomóc policji w śledztwie. "Emil Żądło to świetnie skonstruowana postać, która od pierwszej chwili wzbudziła moją sympatię."

Night of the Living Dead Avatar Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Zombie fans demanded it - the most unprecedented and horrifying night in American history continues as The Night of the Living Dead world expands with these official cannon trade paperbacks! With stories set on that fateful evening in 1968 and expanding to the next generation in the 1970s, these tales expand the original frightening legend to new heights of undead horror. Shocking reports from rural areas continue to flood the airwaves with accounts of the recently deceased rising up to kill the living. Now, government officials begin counter-measures to calm an increasingly panic-stricken public. Questioning whether or not the unbelievable stories are truth or simply an elaborate hoax perpetrated by militants opposed to the Vietnam War, the attention of the nation's Capitol is focused on a threat more believable, as thousands of protesters converge on Capitol Hill to voice their opposition to the War. This five volume collection includes the original Night of the Living Dead Volumes 1, 2, and 3 graphic novels along with the innovative 1970s follow up series Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath Volumes 1 and 2 presented in a one-of-a-kind, value-priced collector's slipcase.
