Sticker on front cover "The story of a B-17 pilot told in family letters". Illustrations. Resources. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Inscribed on the Title Page by Sandra O'Connell (Mrs. R. Lee Minker). Inscription reads "To Dr. Arnold-Louise These letter are the living history of a B-17 pilot and the sacrifices made by his family. We must never forget the price of Freedom! " Ralph Lee Minker Jr. was 18 when he entered the U.S. Army Air Corps cadet training program in 1943, the first step in becoming a B-17 pilot with the Eighth Air Force. From flight training bases all over the country, he wrote to his parents and two sisters about flying: the Piper Cub, the Stearman, the AT-17, BT-17, and finally the B-17 known as the "Flying Fortress." His 300+ WWII letters form a complete record of growing up in those fateful years as he became one of the youngest commanders flying missions over Germany during the Battle of the Bulge. The crew completed their tour of duty with 35 missions in February 1945; Minker signed on for a second tour flying until the celebration of V-E Day. He came home in September 1945, returned to Dickinson College, graduating in 1947. Ordained a Methodist Minister in 1952, Rev. Minker served nine churches in Delaware and Maryland before retiring in 1990. In 2003 the U.S. Air Force celebrated his service as pilot of the Blue Hen Chick by naming a C-5 Galaxy Spirit of the Blue Hen. In 2005 Ralph Minker was inducted into the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame. He was active in planning An American Family in World War II. He passed away on August 5, 2008 leaving a legacy in his WWII letters of duty, honor, and courage.
New York, N.Y. Lancer Books, Inc., 1972. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. 158,  pages. Illustrations. Cover has some wear and soiling. Some page discoloration. Topics cover Life; Stout Ship; The Big Battle; The Sho Plan; PRINCETON and the Formosa Air Battle; The Bomb; "No Immediate Concern"; The Explosions; To Save a Ship; The Avengers; Progress Report; The World Explodes; The Death of the PRINCETON; and Epilogue. This is Lancer's Photobook History of Modern Combat #2. The true, awe-inspiring drama of a bomb-torn American aircraft carrier...ablaze, its crew decimated, and fighting the most courageous naval battle of WW II. Given the tactical situation that developed, the wisdom of scuttling Princeton was proved that very night, for Third Fleet did indeed move out to the north chasing Admiral Ozawa's northern Japanese force. Nothing else, but beaching, could have been done with the carrier, and at the moment, no one knew when they might return, or what might happen in these waters. Almost certainly, had she been beached, she would have been a prime target for the Japanese air force. Carriers always were. Edwin P. Hoyt is a well-known historian, author of more than seventy-five books, including the recent Lancer edition of Raider 16. During World War II, he served first with the Air Force in the Pacific, then with the Office of War Information. Upon separation from the service, he became a war correspondent for UPI, remaining with them after the war as a foreign correspondent. He has been a full-time freelance writer since 1958, and is preparing another book for the Lancer Photo-history of World War II, on U-Boats.

He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in fiction in 1957-8. A derisive description of Franco in The Civil War in Spain, “the fat fratricide sitting on a gilt throne in Madrid, staring past his stuffed Jefes into the black regions promised him by the half men bishops ... those puffed and fearful eyes that gazed paternally from the faces of newspapers and posters and postage stamps and coins” led to his being expelled and later permitted to return after the intervention of a de Vilmorin family member and Franco's own brother. Goldston's prolific output of non-fiction histories lasted from 1947 to 1985.

Charles Carleton Coffin (July 26, 1823 – March 2, 1896) was an American journalist, war correspondent, author and politician. Coffin was one of the best-known newspaper correspondents of the American Civil War. He has been called "the Ernie Pyle of his era," and a biographer, W. E. Griffis, referred to him as "a soldier of the pen and knight of the truth." Charles obtained employment with the Boston Journal newspaper. This led to another milestone in his life after Charles visited the Saratoga battlefield in 1854. Charles' grandfather had fought in this Revolutionary War battle in 1777, and the visit led Charles to reconstruct in his mind the positions and maneuvering of those who had participated. This interest would have a direct effect on his later reporting during the Civil War. Charles was a member of the group that traveled from Chicago to Springfield to advise Abraham Lincoln that he had won the party's nomination for the presidency. In his job as a newspaper reporter, he went on to cover the 1860 election campaign and was in Washington to cover Lincoln's inauguration in March 1861.

From the Arctic Circle to the shores of Japan, Russia's most famous naval scout describes his deadly missions in the Soviet Navy's World War II version of the U.S. Navy's SEALs. Viktor Leonov tells how these elite recon troops acquired their special skills--initially in actual combat--to beat Hitler's formidable 20th Mountain Army, which occupied Russia's Scandinavian borders and threatened the ports receiving crucial American Convoys. Dressed in white, their weapons concealed in white sacks, these naval commandos employed methods as diverse as skiing, navigation by azimuth, parachute and submarine insertions, and climbing icy cliffs to carry out their operations in the polar nights. Whether raiding, capturing German officers, organizing partisan activities, or vectoring air strikes, the scouts exhibited the exceptional operational security, surprise, and daring that ultimately drove the Germans out of Norway and Finland and made the Russian commandos' exploits legendary throughout the North and the Far East.

In Ambassador Meyer's words, the purpose of this book is to awaken greater public interest in the gravity of America's relationship with Asia's foremost power, and in the delicacy which must be exercised by those to whom responsibility for the relationship is entrusted. The partnership, so critical to peace in Asia, cannot be taken for granted. The postwar development of Japan has been nothing less than phenomenal. Within a quarter of a century, a nation which was physically devastated and morally crushed rose to become one of the world's three leading industrial powers. But with successes come new problems. By 1969, major adjustments to new realities were necessry--in Japan, and in the all-important relationship between Japan and the United States. This book is his account of the critical issues which were faced, and how they were handled.
