The scourge of Allied shipping during World War II, the U-Boot Waffe was one of the most feared components of Hitler's war machine, yet the Kriegsmarine was the least political branch of the Third Reich. The sailors of the U-boat arm were courageous, highly skilled seamen, who fought a war in the toughest conditions: subject to immense tension, and forced to cope with the challenges of the Atlantic, life for a U-boat recruit was far from easy. This title explores the life of a typical U-boat crewman, from recruitment, through training and service conditions, to combat experience throughout the war. Illustrated with many previously unpublished images, this book offers a fresh insight into the experiences of the men in Dönitz's legendary 'wolf packs'.

Master spy, Nazi hunter—and werewolf on the prowl—in occupied Paris: A classic of dark fantasy from a Bram Stoker Award—winning author. Allied Intelligence has been warned: A Nazi strategy designed to thwart the D-Day invasion is underway. A Russian émigré turned operative for the British Secret Service, Michael Gallatin has been brought out of retirement as a personal courier. His mission: Parachute into Nazi-occupied France, search out the informant under close watch by the Gestapo, and recover the vital information necessary to subvert the mysterious Nazi plan called Iron Fist. Fearlessly devoted to the challenge, Gallatin is the one agent uniquely qualified to meet it—he’s a werewolf. Now, as shifting as the shadows on the dangerous streets of Paris, a master spy is on the scent of unimaginable evil. But with the Normandy landings only hours away, it’s going to be a race against time. For Gallatin, caught in the dark heart of the Third Reich’s twisted death machine, there is only one way to succeed. He must unleash his own internal demons and redefine the meaning of the horror of war. From the award-winning author of Swan Song and Boy’s Life, this is a “powerful novel [that] fuses WWII espionage thriller and dark fantasy. Richly detailed, intricately plotted, fast-paced historical suspense is enhanced by McCammon’s unique take on the werewolf myth” (Publishers Weekly).

Ace Roberts was, in his own words, "The Best Damn Fighter Pilot Ever Born!" This Clark-Gable look-alike got his nickname by shooting down ten Jap Zeros in a P-40 Tomahawk in 1942 as an American mercenary for Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek. He reinforced this reputation in the Korean War by shooting down ten Russian-built MiG- 15's in his F-86 Sabrejet. He was, in fact, a double ace, two times over. Ace was also very, very lucky! He survived three years of inhuman torture in Japanese prisoner-of-war camps in World War II; being shot down behind enemy lines in Korea and a year of aerial combat in "MiG-Alley," high above the Manchurian skies. Women were irresistibly attracted by his devilish good looks and magnetic charm. These included Suzy, a pretty MASH nurse; An Liu, exotic confidant to Madame Chiang Kai Slick; and, if truth be known, Madame Chiang herself! But Ace had a penchant for taking chances. He chased two Chinese pilots across the Yalu River into Manchuria, shooting them down in violation of Air Force Regulations and getting cashiered from the service for this infraction. A year later, he vanished while flying an X-99 experimental jet over California's High Sierras, resulting in Madame Chiang's dispatching An Liu to assist in the search for her favorite American. Read LUCKYACE to find out if this intrepid airman can escape his latest rendezvous with death.

This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele's twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move. But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission?

In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable. Electric lighting, indoor plumbing, motor vehicles, air travel, and television transformed households and workplaces. But has that era of unprecedented growth come to an end? Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, The Rise and Fall of American Growth challenges the view that economic growth will continue unabated, and demonstrates that the life-altering scale of innovations between 1870 and 1970 cannot be repeated. Robert Gordon contends that the nation's productivity growth will be further held back by the headwinds of rising inequality, stagnating education, an aging population, and the rising debt of college students and the federal government, and that we must find new solutions. A critical voice in the most pressing debates of our time, The Rise and Fall of American Growth is at once a tribute to a century of radical change and a harbinger of tougher times to come.

Part of the Gotenhafen on July 3, 1940 in a campaign that would last 516 days, the Komet was a cargo processed by the German Navy to operate as auxiliary cruiser allied against trade ships. Winner of the Pacific waters' partially frozen Arctic Ocean, this predator disguised as a Japanese vessel will carried out hunting in all oceans, even in Antarctica, boarding ten allied ships, creating insecurity off of the Australian coast and New Zealand as well as around the Panama Canal. A fascinating adventure with 200 restored and unpublished shots. The secret rendezvous with German supply ships at sea, the capture and destruction of enemy ships, the prisoners taken on board, daily life, ceremonies, shore excursions or meeting with the U-boats in the Atlantic: little has escaped the lens of the photographer.

A visceral portrait of the men who fought and died beneath the surface of the Atlantic in one of the most critical battles of WWII. In the early years of the Second World War, an elite force of German submariners known as the U-Bootwaffe came perilously close to perfecting the underwater battle tactics that would sever Britain’s transatlantic lifeline. To the Allies, these enemy sailors were embarking on a mission of unequivocal evil. Each member of the U-Bootwaffe understood that he must take pride in being part of a unique brotherhood. He had to do so because he was setting out—in claustrophobic, unsanitary, stench-filled, and ultimately hellish conditions—on a journey that would test his mental and physical endurance to the very limits, and which he had little chance of surviving. Those that did return soon ceased to take comfort in friends or family, dwelling on the knowledge that another patrol awaited them. By the end of the war, of the 39,000 men who went to sea in the U-boats, 27,491 died in action and a further 5,000 were made prisoners of war. Of the 863 U-boats that sailed on operational patrols, 754 were lost. Through letters, diaries, journals, and more, Grey Wolves memorably captures life and death on board a U-boat in the midst of a global conflict.

A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER “Five gritty leaders whose extraordinary passion and perseverance changed history…a gripping read on a timeless and timely topic” —Angela Duckworth, #1 bestselling author of Grit An enthralling historical narrative filled with critical leadership insights, Forged in Crisis, by celebrated Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn, spotlights five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton; President Abraham Lincoln; legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass; Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer; and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. What do such disparate figures have in common? Why do their extraordinary stories continue to amaze and inspire? In delivering the answers to those questions, Nancy Koehn offers a remarkable template by which to judge those in our own time to whom the public has given its trust. She begins each of the book’s five sections by showing her protagonist on the precipice of a great crisis: Shackleton marooned on an Antarctic ice floe; Lincoln on the verge of seeing the Union collapse; escaped slave Douglass facing possible capture; Bonhoeffer agonizing over how to counter absolute evil with faith; Carson racing against the cancer ravaging her in a bid to save the planet. The narrative then reaches back to each person’s childhood and shows the individual growing—step by step—into the person he or she will ultimately become. Significantly, as we follow each leader’s against-all-odds journey, we begin to glean an essential truth: leaders are not born but made. In a book dense with epiphanies, the most galvanizing one may be that the power to lead courageously resides in each of us. Whether it’s read as a repository of great insight or as exceptionally rendered human drama, Forged in Crisis stands as a towering achievement.
