Cut off : behind enemy lines in the Battle of the Bulge with two small children, Ernest Hemingway, and other assorted misanthropes by Bill Davidson( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a skirt-chasing 23 year old GI reporter for Yank magazine who haplessly stumbles right into the opening hours of the Battle of the Bulge and results in an extraordiary odyssey to save the lives of two orphaned Jewish children, 6-year old Lisa and her 7 year old brother Friedrich. It's just over a week before Christmas, 1944. The German army, thought to be nearly "kaput", has just opened the surprisingly brutal Ardennes offensive - smashing through lightly held American lines in the countryside of Belgium. Davidson, having just completed a romantic interlude in Brussels, smells a story and jumps in his Jeep - the "Lootwagen" - which he keps well stocked with Nylons, Liquor and Cigarettes - neccesary currency for a young reporter in search of the "action". Some of the dates and places don't quite seem to jibe with historical fact, but Davidson's self-deprecating humor overrides concerns over historic accuracy of the account. There's a little of everything - heroic soldiers, deserters, the Belgian resistance, black marketeers, and a drunken, clueless Ernest Hemingway

Spirits of the state : Japan's Yasukuni shrine by John K Nelson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tokyo's Yasukuni shrine honors and venerates the spirits of Japanese soldiers and officers-including convicted and executed war criminals. This program explores the history of the Shinto shrine, the complexity of its functions, and the controversies generated when political leaders appear there. Interviews with visitors, an inside look at the shrine's adjacent museum of war memorabilia, and a discussion of what has become known as "state Shinto" create a context in which reverence for the enshrined may be understood. A rare view of Japanese nationalism and the political use of religious traditions, Spirits of the State offers valuable insight into the continuing and contested legacies of World War II
