обложка книги Sacrifice Sacrifice

Sacrifice is the fifth book in the Red Gambit series.

As the bloody days of 1945 give way to the incoming New Year, Europe finds itself in the grips of the most severe winter since records began.

Temperatures plunge, incapacitating the armies of both sides, but not enough to stop the dying. The war descends into a frozen stalemate, marked by aggressive patrolling, death from the air, and the simple struggle to stay alive in record low temperatures.

As the soldiers shiver in their foxholes, spies ply their trade, gathering information, deceiving the enemy, and obtaining knowledge that feeds the planners of both sides, who wait for the time that the snows have gone, and when they can let loose the dogs of war once more.

[The ‘Red Gambit Series’ novels are works of fiction, and deal with fictional events. Most of the characters therein are a figment of the author’s imagination. Without exception, those characters that are historical figures of fact or based upon historical figures of fact are used fictitiously, and their actions, demeanour, conversations, and characters are similarly all figments of the author’s imagination.]

обложка книги Sentinels of Fire Sentinels of Fire

P.T. Deutermann's World War II navy series began with the award-winning Pacific Glory, followed by the brilliantly reviewed Ghosts of Bungo Suido. His new novel Sentinels of Fire tells the tale of a lone destroyer, the USS Malloy, part of the Allied invasion forces attacking the island of Okinawa and the Japanese home islands.


By the spring of 1945, the once mighty Japanese fleet has been virtually destroyed, leaving Japan open to invasion. The Japanese react by dispatching hundreds of suicide bombers against the Allied fleet surrounding Okinawa. By mid-May, the Allied fleet is losing a major ship a day to murderous swarms of kamikazes streaming out of Formosa and southern Japan. The radar picket line is the first defense and early warning against these hellish formations, but the Japanese direct special attention to these lone destroyers stationed north and west of Okinawa.

One destroyer, the USS Malloy, faces an even more pressing issue when her Executive Officer Connie Miles begins to realize that the ship's much-admired Captain Pudge Tallmadge is losing his mind under the relentless pressure of the attacks. Set against the blazing gun battles created by the last desperate offensive of the Japanese, Executive Officer Miles and the ship's officers grapple with the consequences of losing their skipper's guidance — and perhaps the ship itself and everyone on board.

Vividly authentic, historically accurate, and emotionally compelling, Sentinels of Fire is military adventure at its best, by an author whose career as a Navy captain informs every page.

The summer of 1917.

Britain is losing the war against the deadly German U-boats.

After a close fought action, Commander David Smith uncovers what he believes is a deadly plot against Britain from a dying German sailor. Code-named SchwerttrZiger — or Swordbearer — it could turn the tide of the war in Germany's favour. But nobody will listen to him. He is under suspicion, and ignored. With just one one ancient destroyer, a turtle-back ‘thirty-knotter’ known as ‘Bloody Mary’, under his command, he must wage this battle on his own. Smith has to take on shore batteries and bigger, faster enemy destroyers. He has to fight the hostility of his commanding officer and is plunged into a world of espionage behind enemy lines. Through it all the mystery behind ‘Schwerttriiger’ lures him on — until he stakes his career and his life in a desperate attempt to solve it.

Ship of Force’ is an edge-of-the-seat WWI naval adventure that combines thrilling story-telling with meticulous research.

обложка книги Silent Sea Silent Sea

As they listened to the death throes of their sister ship Mako sinking in the Pacific where the waters were six miles deep, the crew of USS Eelfish suddenly came of age. They were a new breed: a brand-new fleet submarine crewed by draftees and reservists. Hidebound regular Navy officers believed they wouldn’t fight. But fight they did with reckless abandon, proving themselves on two fronts — against the Japanese at sea, and against their own Admirals, who clung to outmoded concepts of how to wage war under the sea.

This true-to-life novel moves at breathtaking speed from the invasion of Guadalcanal through the battle of the Philippine Sea and to the coast of Japan. By the end of the war, submarines such as Eelfish had so tightened the noose of naval blockade around Japan that the enemy was finished as an industrial nation, unable to fight effectively.

But American submariners paid dearly for their victories. One out of every five men who went to sea in submarines in the Pacific died in combat, the highest percentage of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. This is a novel about their exploits, how they fought, how they loved, and how they died, written by a man who was there.


Harry Homewood was a qualified submariner before he was seventeen years old, having lied to the Navy about his age, and serving in a little "S"-boat in the old Asiatic Fleet. After Pearl Harbor he reenlisted and made eleven war patrols in the Southwest Pacific. He later became Chicago Bureau Chief for Newsweek, chief editorial writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, and for eleven years had his own weekly news program syndicated to thirty-two PBS television stations.

SYNOPSIS

Aboard helicopter transports bristling with weaponry and with a powerful escort of gunships, an airborne NATO assault group crosses the Zone to attack and destroy a Warsaw Pact rail junction and marshalling yard. But the attack force has been betrayed and the already powerful anti-aircraft defences have been massively reinforced. Faced with batteries of missiles, massed cannons and Shilka flak tanks the attack is scattered and brutally clawed from the sky. Surviving the slaughter Revells’ Special Combat Force finds itself deep inside enemy territory and has to engage in a running battle to carve a path through the enemy forces. Using stolen enemy vehicles they have to fight every inch of the way to return to the NATO lines.

обложка книги Storm Front Storm Front

In 1941, Adolf Hitler didn’t declare war on the United States. Now, in 1985, the Third Reich stretching from the coast of France to the icy wastes of Eastern Russia, appears supremely powerful. With a powerful force of nuclear warheads and the finest military machine on Earth, there is no hope for freedom for the billions who groan under its rule. Adolf Hitler’s mad dreams have come to pass.

And yet, all is not well in the Reich. The cold war with the United States and the North Atlantic Alliance is destroying the Reich’s economy, while a savage insurgency in South Africa – a war the Reich cannot win and dares not lose – is sapping its military strength. And, while the Reich Council struggles to find a way to save the Reich from its own weaknesses, a young German girl makes a discovery that will shake the Reich to its core.

But the Reich Council will not go quietly into the night…

обложка книги Strafbatallion 999 Strafbatallion 999

Strafbataillon 999 – das ist eine jener Straf- und Bewährungseinheiten, die der Landser schlicht und treffend "Himmelfahrtskommandos" nannte. Deutsche Soldaten, die sich größtenteils nur geringfügiger Vergehen schuldig gemacht hatten, wurden darin zusammengefaßt und härtestem Drill unterworfen. Die Männer kamen in den vordersten Linien zum Einsatz – überall da, wo es am gefährlichsten war, wo der Dreck am tiefsten und das Blut so wertlos war wie das Spülwasser der Feldküche. Kein Wunder, daß von Tausenden nur eine Handvoll überlebte.

обложка книги Surface! Surface!

The original novel of submarine warfare, available for the first time as an ebook after selling over half a million copies in its original editions.

Written with a blazing intensity, it is a stirring and compellingly authentic journey through the greatest conflict in history, drawing upon the author’s first-hand experience. Get ready for adventure!

Surface! is Fullerton’s first novel, released in 1953 and based on his own life as a submarine torpedo officer. A tale of one crew’s hardship, camaraderie and great daring on board a British submarine serving in Asian waters during the Second World War.

This is life on HMS Seahound: routine and special operations; boarding Chinese junks; creeping through minefields; engaging a Japanese cruiser; evading depth charges; returning to the port of Ceylon and the Depot Ship; and then off again into action with unerring zeal. But can they keep evading tragedy forever? And if the war ends, will they really be able to cope with life on the surface?

    Роман «Записки офицера Красной Армии» — это альтернативный советскому и современному официальному взгляд на события в Западной Беларуси.

  •  Японские тяжелые крейсера.Том 1: История создания, описание конструкции, предвоенные модернизации.
     Сулига Сергей В
     Наука, Образование, Технические науки, История, Проза, О войне

    Что касается 18 японских тяжелых крейсеров, ставших предметом данной монографии, то первые из них появились в качестве 7100-тонных дальних разведчиков выходившего на океанские просторы флота и их проекты одобрили еще до подписания Вашингтонского договора. Тем не менее, и они создавались с оглядкой на британские крейсера-защитники торговли конца первой мировой войны типа “Хоукинс” (“Hawkins”), которых считают непосредственными предшественниками всех “вашингтонцев”. Построив 4 корабля с вооружением, заметно уступавшим первым «10000-тонникам» вероятных противников, японцы с лихвой компенсировали свое отставание в последующих двух сериях, за счет всевозможных ухищрений (а не брезговали они и нарушением договоров) давая им на 1 -2 орудия больше, чем у других, а также мощнейшее торпедное и авиационное вооружение. В результате 8 крейсеров типов “Миоко” и “Такао” не без оснований стали считать сильнейшими в мире. На эти корабли японские адмиралы возлагали большие надежды в ночном бою против численно сильнейшего линейного флота США - бою, который по их замыслам должен был предшествовать генеральному сражению. Функции же разведки в интересах линейного флота отошли на второй план, особенно с развитием палубной авиации.

    Появление же последних 6 тяжелых крейсеров в составе японского флота не имеет аналогов в практике мирового кораблестроения: построенные в качестве легких (класса “b”) с беспрецедентно мощным вооружением из 15 155-мм орудий, но с заложенной в проекте возможностью перевооружения на 203-мм калибр, они были быстро перестроены в тяжелые, как только японцы отказались от соблюдения всех договоров. В результате к началу войны на Тихом океане количество кораблей этого класса у основных соперников - Японии и США — оказалось равным.

    Издание выпущено в формате аналогичном серии "Боевые корабли мира".

  •  Опаленная юность
     Ильинский Юрий Борисович
     Проза, О войне

    22 июня 1941 года ученики девятого класса подмосковной Ильинской средней школы ушли добровольно в народное ополчение. Среди них были ребята, связанные между собой крепкими узами товарищества и дружбы.

    Повесть «Опаленная юность» и есть достоверная история того, как воевали под Москвой вчерашние школьники. Суровое время и сознание великой ответственности, которая легла на плечи ребят, превращает их из мальчишек в стойких и мужественных бойцов.

    Эти пареньки не совершали каких-то необыкновенных подвигов. Но они яростно дрались с врагом, защищая любимый город, и отдали свои семнадцатилетние жизни родине — разве это не подвиг?
