Description : Read Now With Great Sacrifice And Bravery by Glenn Knoblock and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this work is presented to the reader with several ideas in mind. first, it is the author''s hope that, in some small way, it will help preserve the memory of a little known pilot who fought, not only for his own country, but also for france and england during the early, dark days of world war ii. while waclaw lapkowski was an experienced pilot who became one of poland''s aces during the war, his early demise, like that of so many others, has relegated his achievements to the back pages of history, making them nearly forgotten. however, in referring to pilots such as lapkowski, the great british ace robert stanford-tuck cites the many men "who were credited with six, seven, or eight victories", pilots that "formed the bulk and guts of our fighter force." the second reason for producing this work is the unique use of official combat and operations reports from the royal air force (raf). many of those who are interested in world war ii aviation and fighter aces have read the biographies, and first-hand accounts of air combat contained within, of such men as douglas bader, witold urbanowicz, adolph galland, and gregory "pappy" boyington, to name just a few. but what of those "aces" that did not survive to tell their story? how are they to be remembered? in the case of those who served with the raf, the answer is, in part, through the use of official combat reports and related documents. while these official raf and polish air force (paf) records do not sound particularly exciting, a glance at the surviving records quickly proves otherwise. indeed, the title of this book consists of a borrowed phrase from one such report, and is a small example of the many dramatic events recorded within, often in the pilot''s own words. while these reports have been an important source for many works on the raf and paf and its achievements during the war, never before, to the author''s knowledge, have official combat reports been presented to the reading public in their original form. though not originally intended for public view, they nonetheless make for exciting and informative reading and will be of interest not only to those with a passing interest in world war ii aviation, but to the serious student as well. while the author was unable to obtain combat reports for all of lapkowski''s flights, those that were procured for september 1940 and june 1941 are of particular interest as they highlight all of the "kills" that he made while serving in the raf. the final reason for choosing to write about waclaw lapkowski is due to the availability of wartime artifacts connected with his service in the raf. about a year ago the author came in contact with a man who owned a portion of lapkowski''s hurricane fighter, which was legally excavated in 1979. the author subsequently obtained a small piece of the wreckage for his personal collection, while the collector retained the remains of its merlin engine, the prop boss, its browning machine guns, and other items formerly on display at an aviation museum. once this artifact was in the author''s possession, he became interested in finding out about lapkowski, his career, and his subsequent fate. while this work gives much information about 303 squadron, it is not, however, a squadron history. while a book entitled squadron 303 was published in london in 1942, written by arkady fiedler, it was not intended as an exacting history of the unit. instead, it was a nice work of wartime public relations to help explain the polish contribution in general terms during the battle of britain. despite its shortcomings, fiedler''s book deserves its own place in the annals of aviation history. copies by the thousands were smuggled into nazi-held poland and served not only to show that those who had left poland were still fighting for their country, but served as an inspiration to those left behind to continue their resistance. no definitive squadron history has yet been translated into english. what the author found out, from the official combat reports, and various published sources, uniquely combined with available archaeological artifacts, was fascinating. what emerged from the records is a story worth telling. waclaw lapkowski, though not famous like such other polish aces as stanislaw skalski, jan zumbach, or urbanowicz, had an interesting and distinguished career. he was in the thick of battle at the outset of the war, when germany invaded poland on september 1, 1939, and saw subsequent service during the battle of france and the battle of britain in 1940. he achieved air victories in two out of three of these campaigns, and is one of only a handful of men, less than 150 in number, who served in all three campaigns. to borrow a phrase from the british, waclaw lapkowski truly was one of "the few", men whose skill and bravery helped stem the tide of german aggression and made allied victory possible, at the cost of their own lives.

Description : Read Now For Crew And Country by John Wukovits and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in for crew and country, john wukovits tells of the most dramatic naval battle of the pacific war and the incredible sacrifice of the uss samuel b. roberts. on october 25, 1944, the samuel b. roberts, along with the other twelve vessels comprising its unit, stood between japan's largest battleship force ever sent to sea and macarthur's transports inside leyte gulf. faced with the surprise appearance of more than twenty japanese battleships, cruisers, and destroyers, including the yamato, at 70,000 tons the most potent battlewagon in the world, the 1,200-ton samuel b. roberts turned immediately into action with six other ships. captain copeland marked the occasion with one of the most poignant addresses ever given to men on the edge of battle: "men," he said over the intercom, "we are about to go into a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected." the ship churned straight at the enemy in a near-suicidal attempt to deflect the more potent foe, allow the small aircraft carriers to escape, and buy time for macarthur's forces. of 563 destroyers constructed during wwii, the samuel b. roberts was the only one sunk, going down with guns blazing in a duel reminiscent of the spartans at thermopylae or davy crockett's alamo defenders. the men who survived faced a horrifying three-day nightmare in the sea, where they battled a lack of food and water, scorching sun and numbing nighttime cold, and nature's most feared adversary—sharks. the battle would go down as history's greatest sea clash, the battle of samar—the dramatic climax of the battle of leyte gulf.

Description : Read Now White Terror by Jamie Bisher and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this is the gripping story of a forgotten russia in turmoil, when the line between government and organized crime blurred into a chaotic continuum of kleptocracy, vengeance and sadism. it tells the tale of how, in the last days of 1917, a fugitive cossack captain brashly led seven cohorts into a mutinous garrison at manchuli, a squalid bordertown on russia's frontier with manchuria. the garrison had gone red, revolted against its officers, and become a dangerous, ill-disciplined mob. nevertheless, cossack captain grigori semionov cleverly harangued the garrison into laying down its arms and boarding a train that carried it back into the bolsheviks' tenuous territory. through such bold action, semionov and a handful of young cossack brethren established themselves as the warlords of eastern siberia and russia's pacific maritime provinces during the next bloody year. like inland pirates, they menaced the trans-siberian railroad with fleets of armoured trains, cossack cavalry, mercenaries and pressgang cannon fodder. they undermined admiral kolchak's white armies, ruthlessly liquidated all reds, terrorized the population, sold out to the japanese, and antagonized the american expeditionary force and czech legion in a frenzied orchestration of the russian empire's gotterdammerung. historians have long recognized that ataman semionov and company were a nasty lot. this book details precisely how nasty they were.
