By member GAVIN MORTIMER

Please join us 10 September 2014 at 8pm EDST in the 'Air War: 1939-1945' group for this giveaway sponsored by our good friends at Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "In The First Eagles: The Fearless American Aces Who Flew with the RAF in World War I, award-winning historian Gavin Mortimer engagingly profiles the restless, determined American aviators who grew tired of waiting for the their country to establish an aerial military force during World War I."

The Battle of the Bulge: A Graphic History of Allied Victory in the Ardennes, 1944-1945

By member WAYNE VANSANT

Please join us 30 September 2014 at 8pm EDST in the 'D-Day, Normandy, and Europe' group for this giveaway. This event is sponsored by our partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "In Battle of the Bulge, author and artist Wayne Vansant brings readers into the frozen foxholes, haunting forests, and devastated villages of the Ardennes during that freezing cold winter. With meticulous historical accuracy and hand-drawn visuals that can tell a story in ways words alone cannot, Vansant recounts the Bulge with insightful detail, replaying the thrusts and volleys of both the combined Allied and German forces during the tumultuous battle."
