The twilight riders the last charge of the 26th Cavalry by Peter F Stevens ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Twilight Riders is the first book to chronicle the full drama of the 26th Cavalry’s magnificent but doomed mounted campaign against some of the finest troops, air power, and tanks of the Japanese Army—a long-neglected episode of World War II that marked the end of the grand tradition of the U.S. horseback cavalry. It was shortly after Pearl Harbor, and the Japanese invasion of the Philippines was underway. Among the Philippines’ defenders was a group of Filipino noncommissioned officers and enlisted men, led by white American officers. They were from a different era—trained to fight on horseback as had the Cavalry in the Civil War. They battled fiercely against their Japanese foes but, in the end, were forced to slaughter their mounts and to finish the hopeless fight on foot. Through extensive research based in part on in-depth interviews with 26th Cavalry veterans, author Peter F. Stevens brings this band of brothers and their beloved horses to life as they rode, fought, and bled together in the desperate, doomed struggle to stem the Imperial Japanese Army
Fatal dive solving the World War II mystery of the USS Grunion by Peter F Stevens ( )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No radio distress call ever crackled from the submarine USS Grunion. In 1942, under the fog of World War II, the vessel simply vanished without a trace. For nearly sixty-five years, only a dead silence lingered regarding the fate of the sub and its seventy-man crew--until now. Here author Peter F. Stevens reveals the incredible true story of the search for and discovery of the Grunion--as well as the navy's shocking and willful cover-up of the submarine's baffling disappearance. Discovered in 2006 after a decades-long search by the Abele brothers, whose father commanded the submarine and met his untimely death aboard it, one question remained: what sank the USS Grunion? Now, for the first time ever, Fatal Dive reveals the answer: one of the Grunion's own missiles. The navy knowingly sent the Grunion out with faulty torpedoes, and Fatal Dive reveals damning and never-before-published government documents that provide irrefutable evidence of its shameful cover-up
