The San Francisco Earthquake by Gordon Thomas( Book )

14 editions published between 1971 and 1989 in English and Japanese and held by 2,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906: It contains never before published documents of the insurance companies, the military, and the Red Cross to tear away the myths and expose the real villains and heroes The last big earthquake in the United States came at 5:13 a.m. on April 18, 1906, in San Francisco. No one knows when the next, even more devastating earthquake will come to San Francisco, but one will come. Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan Witts have written a spellbinding moment-by-moment account of the 1906 earthquake and dramatic prediction & mdash;based on expert opinion & mdash;of the next one. The authors use never-before-published eyewitness reports and previously ignored documents of the insurance companies, the military, and the Red Cross to tear away the myths surrounding the holocaust. They expose the real villains and heroes, show how the political powers tried to conceal the amount of damage caused by the earthquake, reveal that the fire was spread by the inexperienced dynamite squads trying to contain it, and tell how the military executed people without trial. The reader joins the great Italian tenor Caruso, the founder of the Bank of America Giannini, the writer-adventurer Jack London, the temperamental star John Barrymore, and the thousands of less famous in their struggle for survival. The authors ask unsettling questions. How prepared is the city for the coming catastrophe? Why is there, for instance, only one fire boat in San Francisco Bay? Why does the subway tunnel through the San Andreas fault? Why have new skyscrapers been built in the part most likely to go?

Guernica, the crucible of World War II by Gordon Thomas( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 1991 in English and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cultural and religious capital of northern Spain was reduced to rubble on April 26, 1937. Franco said the people of Guernica destroyed the town themselves. Others - in Spain and throughout the world - protested what they believed to be an unprecedented wartime slaughter of innocent civilians. Guernica proves both views wrong, at last presenting the truth about a tragedy too long misunderstood. In a remarkable achievement, two internationally respected investigative reporters reached original sources - people on both sides of the Spanish Civil War - to discover the actual events of April 26, 1937. Thirty-two surviving eyewitnesses to the tragedy were interviewed. The reporters also traveled to Germany to interview the men of the German Air Force sent by Hitler to support Franco's bid for power. The result: a detailed, moment-by-moment reconstruction of the dramatic three-day period that culminated in the bombing of norther Spain's holy city. Guernica is an intense human document, told through the experiences of people who were there. --from inside jacket flap
