Buddies: Heartwarming Photos of GIs and Their Dogs in World War II

By L. DOUGLAS KEENEY

The publication date is 7 August 2015 »

Please join us the evening of 6 August 2015 in the D-Day, Normandy and Europe group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele at Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "Enjoy the fun photos and heartwarming stories of WWII's American soldiers and their dogs. One of the most effective forms of American propaganda during World War II was the morale-boosting dog (or buddy) photo. The photos reassured folks back home that despite the horrors of the war, their boys were still boys.

Buddies: Heartwarming Photos of GIs and Their Dogs in World War II is chock-full of photos of warriors and their pups, along with stories of the dogs and their service in Europe and the Pacific. This new edition includes even more photos and tales of furry friends on the front."

Wings of War: Great Combat Tales of Allied and Axis Pilots During World War II

By JAMES P. BUSHA

The publication date is 1 October 2015 »

Please join us the evening of 17 September 2015 in the Air War 1939-1945 group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele at Zenith Press.

Experience the exciting combat tales of both Allied and Axis pilots around the world during World War II.

From Zenith Press: "Wings of War encompasses the World War II air war from late 1939 through 1945 and provides a chronological snapshot not only of famous and significant events from the global air war, but also of other lesser-known events that are equally thrilling and important. Over three dozen different Allied and Axis airplanes are featured, giving you a unique experience at the controls of a variety of World War II's famed fighters, bombers, liaison, and jet airplanes.

The action is truly global--from the skies over England, Greenland, mainland Europe, the African deserts, the CBI Theater, the entire Pacific Theater (including the Aleutians, Russia, Japan, and China) and many more, this is one book no fan of warbirds will want to miss."
