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 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: From the earliest attempts in 1923 to the von Stauffenberg bomb plot of July 20, 1944 many tried and failed to kill the founder and head of the Nazi Party who had become the supreme dictator of Germany. Although many German citizens felt deeply opposed to the ideas and methods of the National Socialists and a small minority went so far as to plot the overthrow of that cruel and tyrannical regime, none of those efforts were successful. The main reason was that eliminating Hitler was the necessary prelude to a radical overthrow of his regime. It is important to note how opposition to dictatorship and willingness to sacrifice one's life to bring it down are not enough. Other elements of a very technical nature are also required: the cooperation of key elements of the armed forces and the security apparatus, sufficient support among the public at large and the material means to conduct a successful coup d'etat. These and more are examined in this excellent chronicle by two veteran writers: James P Duffy and Vincent L Ricci
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 384 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 338 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 twentieth-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 and sank or captured more than a million tons of allied shipping."
