Publisher's Summary

In these brilliant essays, some of our finest military historians reveal little-known facts and events from WWII. W.A.B. Douglas exposes the Nazi's armed landing on North American soil. William H. Whyte gives a riveting account of patrolling Guadalcanal as a junior Marine officer. George Feifer follows Goebbels' race to complete one last movie before the fall of the Reich. William Manchester revisits the Battle of Britain and a myriad of "what-ifs" that might have changed that outcome. For the first time, we see the battle of Tarawa from the Japanese side - and learn how the Saipan suicides were cruelly exploited as propaganda. We feel the fear that the Nazis will succeed in developing a superweapon. And we hear the secret a Royal Navy sub-lieutenant held close for 45 years.
