Mission to Berlin: The American Airmen Who Struck the Heart of Hitler's Reich

By ROBERT F. DORR

From Zenith Press »

Please join us August 6 at 7pm EDST in The Air War 1939-1945 group. This giveaway is sponsored by the good people at Zenith Press.

Meet and connect with the author »

From the Zenith Press website: "Robert F. Dorr's critically acclaimed World War II bombing narrative, now available in paperback format. The western Allies flew 314 bombing missions to Berlin between 1940 and 1945.

Germany's capital was its largest city, the richest metropolitan center on the European continent, the sixth-largest city in the world--and it had been declared a legitimate military target."

Invasion Rabaul: The Epic Story of Lark Force, the Forgotten Garrison, January - July 1942

By BRUCE GAMBLE

From Zenith Press »

Please join us 20 August at 7pm EDST in the War in the Pacific group. This giveaway is sponsored by our good friends at Zenith Press.

From the Zenith Press website: "The riveting first book in Bruce Gamble's critically acclaimed Rabaul trilogy, originally published in hardcover entitled Darkest Hour, which chronicles the longest battle of World War II. January 23, 1942, New Britain. It was 2:30 a.m., the darkest hour of the day and, for the tiny Australian garrison sent to defend this Southwest Pacific island, soon to be the darkest hour of the war."
