Rebellion in Missouri, 1861; Nathaniel Lyon and his Army of the West by Hans Christian Adamson( Book )

3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of General Nathaniel Lyon, whom the author aptly calls a "Missouri Yankee," is a drama of stirring political-military events breaking on the Western Border in the spring of 1861. In exactly 90 days, Missouri was forever lost to the Confederacy. The Lyon story is high tragedy staged at the sanguine second battle of the American Civil War-Wilson's Creek. Colonel Hans Christian Adamson in Rebellion in Missouri combines all the necessary elements in the dramatic story. He expertly re-examines Lyon's generalship of the Union Army of the West. He ably reflects upon the significance of the Battle of Wilson's Creek now, a century later, in the light of all the evidence. Moreover, he brings to us, during the centennial year of Lyon's death, a monumental biography of Lyon. The others are eulogistic and written in the stilted and artificial speech of the eighteen sixties

Eddie Rickenbacker by Hans Christian Adamson( Book )

5 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A gripping biography of Eddie Rickenbacker, an American fighter ace in World War I and Medal of Honor recipient, who lived on the frontline of aviation, military and civilian. Written by his close friend Colonel Hans Christian Adamson, this book contains a fascinating look at Rickenbacker's rise from Columbus, Ohio to becoming the leading American Ace of World War I and aviation icon. A daredevil from an early age, he was fascinated by machines of all kinds but especially aeroplanes. He enlisted in the U.S. army as early as he could in 1917 and arrived in France in June 1917, initially he was thwarted in his efforts to get his 'wings' by officers who wanted to retain him as a ground based mechanic. However, his rise to 'ace' status was rapid once he got into the air. Having only shot down his first enemy aircraft on the 29 April 1918, by the end of the war he had claimed 26 victories and become commander of the famous 'Hat-In-the-Ring' squadron. The inter-war years saw Rickenbacker cement his relationship with Eastern Air Lines, which he would one day lead, and a number of forays into motor racing. His service in World War II saw him range far and wide on missions across America and further afield to Russia; during one of his inspection tours his B-17 Flying Fortress was forced to ditch in the Pacific Ocean. In his most famous death-defying feat Rickenbacker, Adamson and a few of the crew survived adrift in life rafts for 24 days; held together by Rickenbacker's leadership they were rescued on November 13 off the coast of Nukufetau in Tuvalu. A highly recommended biography of one of American Aviation's greatest heroes

Through hell and deep water; the stirring story of the Navy's deadly submarine, the U.S.S. Harder, under the command of Sam Dealey, destroyer killer! by Charles A Lockwood( Book )

10 editions published between 1956 and 2015 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WELCOME ABOARD THE U.S.S. HARDER... She was credited with sinking twenty Japanese ships, eight of them destroyers. Her captain, Sam Dealey, devoted son and loving husband and father, was a product of peace. Sam Dealey, deadly torpedo marksman and destroyer killer, was a product of war. Aboard the Harder there was no time for gloating over, her victories. Dealey himself never gloated. As we have said, his attack manners were calm. He indulged in no shouting, no fanfare of destruction. After his torpedoes hit, he went about the business of bringing his ship into a position of safety as rapidly as possible. He did not linger to rejoice at the sight of an enemy going down. In his veins ran the milk of human kindness, in his heart was a feeling of humility and humanity that could not find pleasure in the destruction of a beautiful ship and a hundred odd human beings-deadly enemies though they were. Perhaps he remembered the worlds of Captain Philip of the old battleship Texas at the Battle of Santiago, who called to his cheering crew as their Spanish adversary sank: "Don't cheer, boys; those poor devils are dying." While Dealey never said so, in so many words, one could conclude that he hated the job of killing but knew it had to be done and did his best to carry out his duty. "HIT 'EM HARDER!"...was the ship's motto, and she most certainly did. On April 13 1944, open season was declared by our Submarines against the destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy, and Comdr. Sam Dealey was at the forefront of the attack. The hunters had become the hunted and Dealey's "down the throat torpedo attacks helped to sink the Rising Sun. He showed great courage, too, when rescuing Australian coast watchers from Borneo's shores, and again, with no reading left on the Fathometer and surf breaking twenty yards ahead, holding Harder against a reef and under fire of snipers to save an American pilot.-Print Ed
