Target Hitler : the plots to kill Adolf Hitler by James P Duffy( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The infamous reign of Adolf Hitler occurred half a century ago, but how he managed to escape so many attempts on his life remains a mystery. Target Hitler addresses the subject anew and is the only book for general audiences that recounts this fascinating topic in depth. James P. Duffy and Vincent L. Ricci have pulled together the known and hitherto unknown facts about the German resistance to create an absorbing tale." "Although many Germans harbored deep hatred for the Nazis and risked their lives trying to topple their regime, most of these would-be assassins were forgotten or slighted in the history of that period. The authors wish to right that wrong. This eminently readable narrative concentrates on the efforts of a group of conspirators within the German army who first began to plot against Hitler in the fall of 1938, and whose story culminates in the famous July 1944 bombing. Bound together by their religious beliefs and a determination to rid their homeland of the Nazi scourge, some of these men were generals, one a field marshal." "It is intriguing to think how the course of world history would have been altered had these men accomplished their mission. That fate denied such an outcome is tragic. But now, at least, the bravery of those who tried to rid the world of the horror Hitler inflicted will be remembered."--Jacket
War at the end of the world : Douglas MacArthur and the forgotten fight for New Guinea, 1942-1945 by James P Duffy( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A harrowing account of an epic, yet nearly forgotten, battle of World War II--General Douglas MacArthur's four-year assault on the Pacific War's most hostile battleground: the mountainous, jungle-cloaked island of New Guinea. One American soldier called it "a green hell on earth." Monsoon-soaked wilderness, debilitating heat, impassable mountains, torrential rivers, and disease-infested swamps--New Guinea was a battleground far deadlier than the most fanatical of enemy troops. Some 600,000 Japanese began landing in January 1942, determined to seize the island as a cornerstone of the Empire's strategy to knock Australia out of the war. Allied Commander-in-Chief MacArthur committed 340,000 Americans, as well as tens of thousands of Australian, Dutch, and New Guinea troops, to retake New Guinea at all costs. What followed was a four-year campaign that involved some of the most horrific warfare in history. At first emboldened by easy victories throughout the Pacific, the Japanese soon encountered in New Guinea a quagmire akin to the Germans' disastrous attempt to take Moscow. For the Americans, victory in New Guinea was the first essential step in the long march towards the Japanese home islands and the ultimate destruction of Hirohito's empire. Winning the war in New Guinea was of critical importance to MacArthur. His avowed "I shall return" to the Philippines could only be accomplished after taking the island. Here, historian James P. Duffy chronicles the most ruthless combat of the Pacific War, a fight complicated by rampant tropical disease, violent rainstorms, and unforgiving terrain that punished Axis and Allied forces alike.--Adapted from dust jacket
Hitler's secret pirate fleet : the deadliest ships of World War II by James P Duffy( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They were the deadliest ships of World War II - nine German commerce raiders disguised as peaceful cargo ships, flying the flags of neutral and allied nations. In reality, these heavily armed warships roamed the world's oceans at will, like 20th-century pirates. They struck unsuspecting freighters and tankers out of the darkness of night or from behind a curtain of fog and mist. For almost three years they led the Royal Navy on a deadly chase from sea to sea, seeding Allied ports with hundreds of mines and, on one occasion, even bombarding a shore installation."--Jacket

The sinking of the Laconia and the U-boat war : disaster in the mid-Atlantic by James P Duffy( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Packed with rich detail and analysis of what often transpired when merchant ships were sunk by U-boats, this dramatic book highlights the hazards of World War II at sea. At its center, James P. Duffy relates the story of the sinking of the British liner Laconia by the German U-boat U-156. On September 12, 1942, as Laconia sailed crowded with 1,800 Italian prisoners of war, 103 Polish soldiers, 286 mostly severely wounded British military personnel, 80 civilians, and 463 officers and crew, she was hit by two torpedoes fired by U-156. Laconia’s captain ordered the vessel abandoned, and within an hour, she sank. Perhaps surprisingly, the German U-boat then surfaced and sent a signal that brought two other U-boats, an Italian submarine, and three Vichy French warships to assist with rescue operations. The rescue operation by German ships and the subsequent bombing raid by Allied aircraft are both compelling stories and events that had major repercussions for the conduct of the war. In the wake of the incident, German admiral Karl Dönitz issued instructions known as the Laconia Order demanding that all attempts to rescue survivors from Allied merchant ships be ended. The order provoked an international outcry against inhumane treatment of survivors stranded at sea. After the war, Dönitz was charged with and acquitted of war crimes in connection with this order."--Publisher description
