With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa

By E.B. SLEDGE

In honor or the U.S. Marine Corps' 239th birthday, we are giving away electronic copies (for iPad and Kindle) of Eugene Sledge's classic New York Times Bestseller.

Please join us 10 November 2014 for this giveaway in the War in the Pacific at 8pm EST.

From Amazon.com "“Eugene Sledge became more than a legend with his memoir, With The Old Breed. He became a chronicler, a historian, a storyteller who turns the extremes of the war in the Pacific—the terror, the camaraderie, the banal and the extraordinary—into terms we mortals can grasp.”—Tom Hanks"

Colditz: The Full Story

By P.R. REID

Releases 15 December 2014

Please join us 19 November 2014 at 8pm EST in the D-Day, Normandy & Europe group. This exciting new book is offered to us from our friends at Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: The Germans thought escape was impossible. These men proved them wrong.

Colditz Castle, located near Leipzig Germany, was the last stop for select Allied prisoners during World War II. It was here, a reportedly impregnable fortress, that the Germans sent all the prisoners who escaped from other prisons.
