The submarine : a history by Thomas Parrish( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries people dreamed of navigating under the sea, but it was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that inventors succeeded in developing practical submarines. With the coming of World War I, nations saw something entirely new in war: the deadly effectiveness of underwater craft, with German U-boats threatening to starve Britain and bringing the United States into the war, thus proving underwater battles more important than the great battles fought on land. A generation later U-boats repeated the struggle in the Atlantic, while in the Pacific U.S. submarines literally put Japan out of business. Then in the nuclear age, the true submarine became the most powerful weapon of war ever created - the weapon that paradoxically kept the peace. Now, military historian Thomas Parrish tells the story of those who first dreamed of underwater ships; of the practical and ingenious inventors and engineers who created and developed the submarine; of visionary naval strategists; of famous skippers on all sides -- steel-nerved men like America's Dick O'Kane, Germany's Reinhard Hardegen -- who wielded this weapon; of the famous and infamous deeds of boats like the U-20, the Wahoo, and the nuclear-powered Nautilus and George Washington; and of the tragedies that befell boats like the American Thresher and the Russian Kursk."--Publisher's description

Berlin in the balance, 1945-1949 : the blockade, the airlift, the first major battle of the Cold War by Thomas Parrish( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1948, Soviet authorities in Germany announced a land blockade of the American, British, and French sectors of Berlin. Isolated more than one hundred miles within Soviet-occupied territory, western Berlin was in danger of running out of coal, food, and the courage to stand up to Joseph Stalin. Led by President Harry S. Truman, the Western Allies refused to back away from Berlin. Instead, they took to the air, packing passenger planes with coal, potatoes, flour, and other necessities. Berlin in the Balance tells the full, gripping story of this critical conflict - how it developed and how it played out. Through sources made available only after the fall of the USSR, we learn how Soviet leaders planned their strategy to drive out the West, what they feared, and what they hoped to achieve. The Berlin airlift stopped Stalin's expansion in Europe. It helped Truman win his upset election in 1948. And it set the course of East-West conflict for the next forty years. - Publisher

"The Ultra Americans has some secrets of its own to spill : the never-before-told episode of the American general who knew the Ultra secret and was captured by the Nazis ; why the hero who led the first raid over Tokyo, General Jimmy Doolittle, thought he could defy the Ultra regulations ; how one American in the Ultra team forecast the Battle of the Bulge, and what was done about his advance information ; the truth about the bombing of Dresden ; how General Patton used Ultra intelligence to score on the battlefield ; and the TICOM mission that took Americans and Britons from the Ultra operation into newly defeated Germany for what was to become the beginning of the Cold War. The book also gives a full account of how the Japanese ambassador in Berlin gave away hundreds of Nazi secrets by transmitting them to Tokyo in Japanese codes that had been broken by the Americans. Above all, this is the true story of Americans fighting a brutal enemy with their brains - and winning." --from inside jacket

The Cambridge companion to Philip Roth( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the moment that his debut book, Goodbye, Columbus (1959), won him the National Book Award, Philip Roth has been among the most influential and controversial writers of our age. Now the author of more than twenty novels, numerous stories, two memoirs, and two books of literary criticism, Roth has used his writing to continually reinvent himself and in doing so to remake the American literary landscape. This Companion provides the most comprehensive introduction to his works and thought in a collection of newly commissioned essays from distinguished scholars. Beginning with the urgency of Roth's early fiction and extending to the vitality of his most recent novels, these essays trace Roth's artistic engagement with questions about ethnic identity, postmodernism, Israel, the Holocaust, sexuality, and the human psyche itself. With its chronology and guide to further reading, this Companion will be essential for new and returning Roth readers, students and scholars. -- from publisher description
