Summary
  • In harm's way: An epic treatment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, details the devastating sneak attack on the Naval base as well as the explosive behind-the-scenes stories, and the counter-offensive
  • Hell is for heroes: It's autumn 1944, and Nazi forces along the Siegfried Line have the numbers, the fortifications and the firepower to break through. And a handful of GIs have little more than a dogged determination and the ingenuity to fool the Germans into thinking they represent a great Allied Task Force
  • The bridges at Toko-Ri: Not every pilot can guide his aircraft from a wave-tossed deck, seek out targets over unfamiliar Korean terrain, then return to what looks like a speck in the sea. Naval Reservist Harry Brubaker can. A war-weary World War II veteran who must leave his family to fight again
