Now, for the first time, their story is told in fascinating detail in a book accessible to all. SEAL is an acronym for sea, air and land. These formidable commandos operate with deadly efficiency in all three

In From a Dark Sky: The Story of U.S. Air Force Special Operations military affairs specialist Orr Kelly tells for the first time the complete, uncensored history of Air Force special operations: a history that had been up to now shrouded in cover stories, secrecy, and deception.

"Before Normandy, before Anzio, a fledgling Allied army of inexperienced officers and undertrained, ill-equipped troops launched a perilous amphibious invasion of unprecedented size and scope. Their mission: to fight their way across 1,200 miles of mountain and desert and wrest control of North Africa from the battle-hardened veterans of the Nazis' vaunted Afrika Korps, commanded by legendary Field Marshal Erwin Rommel - the Desert Fox."

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here Is Your War is Ernie Pyle's story of the soldiers' first campaign against the enemy in North Africa. Pyle tells how people from a cross-section of America - ranches, inner cities, small mountain farms, and college towns - learned to fight a war. The Allied campaign and ultimate victory in North Africa were build on blood, brave deeds, sacrifice and needless loss, exotic vistas, endurance, homesickness, and an unmistakable American sense of humor."

This is the story of those first Americans who suffered a vicious lesson in warfare from Rommel, the Desert Fox.

Here is your war story of G.I. Joe by Ernie Pyle ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A wonderful and enduring tribute to American troops in the Second World War, [this] is [a] story of the soldiers' first campaign against the enemy in North Africa. With unequaled humanity and insight, [the author] tells how people from a cross-section of America--ranches, inner cities, small mountain farms, and college towns--learned to fight a war. The Allied campaign and ultimate victory in North Africa was built on blood, brave deeds, sacrifice and needless loss, exotic vistas, endurance, homesickness, and an unmistakable American sense of humor. It's all here--the suspenseful landing at Oran; the risks taken daily by fighter and bomber pilots; grim, unrelenting combat in the desert and mountains of Tunisia; a ferocious tank battle that ended in defeat for the inexperienced Americans; and the final victory at Tunis. [The author's] observations relate the full story of ordinary G.I.s caught up in extraordinary times. -Back cover
