The Pacific War Uncensored
A War Correspondent’s Unvarnished Account of the Fight Against Japan
Harold Guard With John Tring
In March 1942 Harold Guard arrived in Australia, having narrowly escaped from Japanese forces invading Singapore and Java. At the time, he was acclaimed by the Australian press as being one of the top four newspapermen covering the war in the Pacific. Over the next three years Guard was to have many more adventures reporting on the Pacific War, including firsthand experience of flying with the U.S. air force on 22 bombing missions, camping with Allied forces in the deadly jungles of New Guinea, and taking part in attacks from amphibious landing craft on enemy occupied territory. He also traveled into the undeveloped areas of Australia’s northern territories to report on the construction of the air bases that were being built in preparation for defending the country against the advancing Japanese. What made Harold Guard’s achievements even more remarkable was that he was disabled, and had to walk with a stiff right leg due to his navy injury. Despite this he often reported from perilous situations at the front line, which gained him considerable notoriety within the newspaper world. Harold Guard always endeavored to give an honest account of what was happening in the war, and this often brought him into conflict with the military censors. Harold Guard passed away in 1986; however thanks to years of work by his grandson John Tring in assembling his dispatches, private correspondence, telegrams, and audio accounts, the full story of Guard’s experiences and observations during the Pacific War have been assembled.The starkly honest perceptions of how the Allies nearly failed and at last finally won the war can now be told.

Free France’s Lion
The Life of Philippe Leclerc, de Gaulle’s Greatest General
William Mortimer Moore
From the fall of France until 1943, Leclerc dovetailed his operations with the British effort in North Africa, establishing himself as a dynamic combat leader in the battles against Rommel. His career not only includes the liberation of Paris, but the retaking of Strasbourg and the reduction of the Colmar Pocket. Helping to spearhead the advance into Germany itself, Leclerc’s armor comprised a rock upon which American units could rely, and its waving the tricolor during the Allied counter-invasion went far toward retrieving French prestige in the war. After VE-Day Leclerc was dispatched to reassert French authority in IndoChina, an uphill task given the atrophy suffered by the French colonial government due to being isolated from its homeland and local Japanese superiority. While being partly successful in the south and Cambodia, Leclerc soon discovered that the Viet Minh were harder to dislodge in the North, and that Ho Chi Minh more than a match for frequently changing postwar French governments. Recognizing that France had neither the means nor the will to recover control, Leclerc advised his government to “negotiate at all costs.” This didn't happen, leading to Dien Bien Phu eight years later and thence to US involvement. Surprisingly, Leclerc has never yet been the subject of a thorough biography in English. Nevertheless many Americans and Englishmen will inevitably have noticed the plethora of monuments to Leclerc in any moderately sized French town. Aside from a fast-paced narrative covering combat at all levels of command, Leclerc’s story will make fascinating reading for any serious student of the full scope of World War II.

How Iraqi Tribes and American Troops Reclaimed Al Anbar and Defeated Al Qaeda in Iraq
Michael E. Silverman
Awakening Victory tells the story of this incredible campaign through the eyes of the commander of the 3rd Battalion, 69th Armored, who was right in the thick of the fight. The book also provides a description of the Iraqi insurgency—particularly al Qaeda in Iraq—that offers the depth and texture which are currently lacking in most American’s perceptions of the war. It describes the battalion’s actions, including incidents not heretofore known to the public, but it is not merely another blood-and-guts war story. The author uses the actions of his battalion to describe a paradigm shift that occurred, while in a totally foreign culture, yet allowed for a move from a war of bombs and bullets to one of partnership and ideas. The author, Lt. Col. Michael E. Silverman (ret) is a political scientist and historian by education and has extensive experience in both warfare and Middle Eastern affairs, including a tour as an advisor to a Saudi Arabian infantry battalion in Riyadh. Silverman served a two-year detail to the Central Intelligence Agency at their Langley headquarters between his last two tours in Iraq. Well-versed in international affairs and world religions, he writes with the authority of someone who has both been blown-up by an IED and helped to shape U.S. strategic policy for the Global War on Terror. In this book he describes, the exact turning point where the United States turned a supposedly failed war into a possibly enduring success.

The Decisive Year of the Revolutionary War
Robert L. Tonsetic
1781 was one of those rare years in American history when the future of the nation hung by a thread, and only the fortitude, determination, and sacrifice of its leaders and citizenry ensured its survival. After shattering the American army under Horatio Gates at Camden, South Carolina, the British army under Lord Cornwallis appeared unstoppable, and was poised to regain the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia for the Crown. However, when General Nathaniel Greene arrived to take command of Patriot forces in the south, he was able to gradually turn the tables. 1781 was a year of battles, as the Patriot Morgan defeated the notorious Tarleton and his Loyal legion at Cowpens. Then Greene suffered defeat at Guilford Courthouse. While luring Cornwallis north, Greene was able to gather new strength and launch a counterattack, until it was Cornwallis who felt compelled to seek succor in Virginia. He marched his main army to Yorktown on the peninsula, upon which the French fleet, the British fleet, Greene, Washington, and the French army under Rochambeau all converged. On October 19, 1781, Cornwallis surrendered his weary and bloodied army.

In this book, Robert Tonsetic provides a detailed analysis of the key battles and campaigns of 1781, supported by numerous eyewitness accounts from privates to generals in the American, French, and British armies. He also describes the diplomatic efforts underway in Europe during 1781, as well as the Continental Congress’s actions to resolve the immense financial, supply, and personnel problems involved in maintaining an effective fighting army in the field.

Special Ops Liberators

Steve Bond Richard Forder
$39.95 • 6 x 9.25 • 224 pages 16 pages b/w photos 978-1-908117-14-4 hardback • December 2011
The work of the RAF’s 100 Group remains one of the least known aspects of the 1939-45 war. Even less has been written about the specifics of day-to-day electronic warface operations and the countermeasures employed. This book, the result of many years meticulous research by Squadron Leader Richard Forder RAF (Ret’d) redresses the balance by focussing on one the heavy units, 223, and its sister units at RAF Oulton, Norfolk. Equipped with former USAAF Liberators, they operated from August 1944 to the end of the European war, with a primary role of protecting Bomber Command Main Force ops by radio and radar countermeasures against German defenses. By analyzing original documents and recording first hand accounts from both sides of the conflict, including those of Main Force personnel, Forder and Bond present a complete, detailed and valuable picture of the secret and vital activities of the special operatives, and their effect on German defenses.
Finding the Fallen
Outstanding Aircrew Mysteries from the First World War to Desert Storm Investigated and Solved
$39.95 • 6.75 x 9.75 • 208 pages b/w photos throughout 978-1-908117-10-6 hardback • December 2011
The logical successor to the highly acclaimed Finding the Few and Finding the Foe, this new work covers a selection of similar mysteries involving missing aircrew and spanning almost the entire twentieth century. Starting with a re-appraisal of the Mannock affair, the author highlights the fates variously of RAF, USAF, Luftwaffe personnel from bomber, reconnaissance and fighter crews. Each case is examined with a microscopic and forensic approach worthy of Silent Witness, and evaluates the detective work involved in unraveling these long-unsolved disappearances of lost airmen. In many cases there is a satisfactory conclusion with ‘closure’ achieved – although some question marks are left hanging unanswered over other equally fascinating cases. Every bit as intriguing as Andy’s earlier works, this is destined to be equally well received and avidly awaited.
