Just as Fox on the Rhine and Fox at the Front showed readers an alternate Europe in which Hitler had been killed, thereby radically changing the course of World War II, Douglas Niles and Michael Dobson bring us the Battle of Midway with a very different outcome. The Allies are wildly out maneuvered and sent home in disgrace. Back in the States things are looking rather grim as the ultra-secret Manhattan Project runs into snafus that greatly delay the final production of the atomic bomb. President Roosevelt's approval ratings drop dramatically. Congress is desperate and the country cries out for a hero. That hero might just be Douglas MacArthur, who vowed that he would return to his beloved Philippines. He plans to do so with the backing of the entire US Armed Forces. MacArthur's plan of action is simple: take the war back to the Japanese, island by bloody island, until standing on the shores of Japan, he can proclaim victory. And possibly gain the leadership of the United States as well. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Time and Tide begins with the Navy cruiser, Jefferson City, looming out of the dawn, fleeing a night of terror and death, the bodies of crewmen floating in water-filled compartments below decks. She has deserted her sister ships at the Battle of Savo Island - the worst naval defeat in U.S. history. New York Times bestselling author Thomas Fleming personalizes the war in the Pacific in this compelling novel of intrigue, love, and honor set aboard the fictional USS Jefferson City. From the night battles off Guadalcanal to the kamikaze-ridden skies of Okinawa, Time and Tide contrasts the horrors of war with the passions of love in this epic tale of Americans on the cutting edge of history.

During his life, George S. Patton Jr. starred as an Olympic athlete in the 1912 Stockholm games, chased down Mexican bandits, and led tanks into battle in World War I. But he is best remembered for his exploits on the field of battle in World War II. Patton’s War, the first of three volumes, follows the general from the beaches of Morocco to the fields of France, right before the birth of Third Army on the continent. In highly engaging fashion, Kevin Hymel uncovers new facts and challenges long-held beliefs about the mercurial Patton, not only examining his relationships with his superiors and fellow generals and colonels, but also with the soldiers of all ranks whom he led. Through extensive research of soldiers’ memoirs and interviews, Hymel adds a new dimension to the telling of Patton’s WWII story.

History shows that the world avoided World War III, partly because of the impact of the Korean War. That standoff war led to “rules of engagement,” which guided the West and the Soviet Union for nearly forty years, ending with the Soviet collapse. The protagonists had decided that they would allow no regional conflict to set off a worldwide nuclear war between them. Too Young for a Forgettable War follows the journey of an eighteen-year old, fresh out of high school and activated for duty in a distant war. His is a coming-of-age story in the most dangerous of environments. The dangers turn out to be not only from the enemy’s weapons but even those of a United Nations ally, whose soldiers mistakenly arrest him as an “enemy agent,” clearly a justification for his execution. Returning to America, he hopes to forget the trauma of his experiences. Decades later, he travels back to Korea and is finally able to come to terms with his wartime experiences. Readers will find parallels between that war’s veterans and those of Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The author and his fellow veterans reveal vivid personal experiences that extend our knowledge and, perhaps, our empathy with those who served, regardless of age, in any war— however forgettable.
