The United States Navy won such overwhelming victories in 1944 that had the Navy faced a different enemy the war would have been over at the conclusion of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. However, in the moment of victory on October 25, 1944, the US Navy found itself confronting an enemy that had been inconceivable until it appeared. The kamikaze, meaning 'divine wind' in Japanese, was something Americans were totally unprepared for; a violation of every belief held in the West. The attacks were terrifying: regardless of the damage inflicted on an attacking airplane, there was no certainty of safety aboard the ship until that airplane was completely destroyed. Based on first-person accounts, Tidal Wave is the story of the naval campaigns in the Pacific from the victory at Leyte Gulf to the end of the war, in which the US Navy would fight harder for survival than ever before. 1.

What would happen if a nuclear bomb was detonated near a cluster of oil refineries? From the president's airplane window, he sees oil refineries lie as white-hot glowing rubble in what was the Texas City of Texas City. Cracking towers lie toppled on pipelines above the ground now carrying radiation contaminated energy toward all parts of the United States. The fires are being fed by row after row of massive storage tanks. One of the tanks explodes, sending the massive roof thousands of feet into the air and then the one next to it explodes because of the heat from the one that just exploded. As the president watches, the next one blows like another domino falling. As the pilot veers to escape the heat from the blast, a third explosion sends a shock wave, hitting the plane. General Maxwell will save the plane from the bomb aftermath. But as he brings the president back to Washington, the millrems gauge reading threatens disaster that they all may... 1.

Can modern science tell us what happened to Amelia Earhart? The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) has spent fifteen years searching for the famous lost pilot using everything from archival research and archaeological survey to side-scan sonar and the analysis of radio wave propagation. In this spellbinding book, four of TIGHAR's scholars offer tantalizing evidence that the First Lady of the Air and her navigator Fred Noonan landed on an uninhabited tropical island but perished before they could be rescued. Do they have Amelia's shoe? Parts of her airplane? Are her bones tucked away in a hospital in Fiji? Come join their fascinating expedition and examine the evidence for yourself!
Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things is a collection of ten stories using the personalities of real people in improbable circumstances. It is somewhere between Alice in Wonder Land, and The Wizard of Oz in the first three stories. Three girls face dangers and adventure in a fantasyland of Screamers and Book Worms. Using their own abilities, with assistance from grandpa to get in and out of the fantasy land, they end up with a unique treasure which will serve them well for going to school and acing the tests. The next five stories are about unusual situations, some of them non-human, and how they were resolved. And the last two are love stories, different from those in most romances. The stories can be read independently with enjoyment. However, since the personalities of the members of a real family are woven throughout them, they are best read from first to last. You are suddenly in a forest with a nine foot high bear and a ten foot high bird: Do you stop reading the story, or do you go along for the adventures to the very end? Your sister is a queen in the land of the Screamers. Can you rescue her? 'X' and 'Y' have been eaten by the giant Omni. Will all the computers in the world go bonkers? Are bees like wasps? Can you survive? Are wolves married? Do you have any other Questions? Is the US President about to be killed? Is this a job for Spy Dog? Can you become a billionaire? Ever try the Golden Gas? Have you ever watched a worm? What did you think about? Ever been ignored by someone you love? Did you try raisins? From your front yard you wave at an airplane. Can it be too high for you to hear it? Get the answers to these questions by reading, Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things Leo Farr is happily married and has five children and five grandchildren. He is presently retired from the State of California and living in Sacramento, California. Over the years, as a counselor and supervisor in the Department of Rehabilitation, as a coach for youth sports, and as a father he has shown a deep interest in the development of children. He has written one other book, Stacey and her Lessons in Learning.
Boris Sergievsky's life of high adventure began when he fought as a Russian infantry officer and fighter pilot against Austria-Hungary during WWI, and against the Red Army after the Bolshevik revolution. In 1923, he came to the U.S. and joined Igor Sikorsky's airplane company as chief test pilot. Over the next ten years, Pan American Airways established routes across Latin America and the Pacific, using Sikorsky flying boats. Sergievsky tested them all and flew many of the inaugural flights. Sergievsky dictated this lively and personal memoir in 1934, when he and Charles Lindbergh were about to set eight world's records in a giant Pan American 'Clipper'. By then, Sergievsky had made pioneering flights across vast stretches of Latin America, carrying everything from mining machinery to boa constrictors. He flew Osa and Martin Johnson across uncharted African jungles, survived a tidal wave that smashed his flying boat in mid-ocean, and escaped a blazing crash when his airplane caught fire in midair. Through it all, his sense of humor remained intact, as did his passion for beautiful women. The editors, who knew Sergievsky well during his later years -- he was Adam Hochschild's uncle -- have written three dozen sidebars to put Sergievsky's memoir in context for today's readers, and to describe his further adventures in the next three decades. More than forty rare photographs enhance the story of Sergievsky's eventful life.
(Book). Acquired wisdom has always put Sgt. Pepper at the head of the class, but it was Revolver that truly signaled The Beatles' sea change from a functional band to a studio-based ensemble. These changes began before Rubber Soul but came to fruition on Revolver , which took an astonishing 300 hours to produce, far more than any rock record before it. The making of Revolver hunkered down in Abbey Road with George Martin is in itself a great Beatles story, but would be nothing if the results weren't so impactful. More than even Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds , Revolver fed directly into the rock 'n' roll zeitgeist, and its influence could be heard everywhere: from the psychedelic San Francisco sound (Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead); to the first wave of post-blues hard rock (Sabbath, Zeppelin); through movie soundtracks and pretty much everything that followed it including every generation of guitar-based pop music and even heavy metal. More than any record before or after, Revolver was the game-changer, and this is, finally, the detailed telling of its storied recording and enormous impact.
