Cronkite's War - Hardcover
Cronkite's War - Hardcover
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Books/Culture, History and Religion/War and Conflict

A giant in American journalism in the vanguard of "The Greatest Generation" reveals his World War II experiences in this National Geographic book. Walter Cronkite, an obscure 23-year-old United Press wire service reporter, married Betsy Maxwell on March 30, 1940, following a four-year courtship. She proved to be the love of his life, and their marriage lasted happily until her death in 2005. But before Walter and Betsy Cronkite celebrated their second anniversary, he became a credentialed war correspondent, preparing to leave her behind to go overseas. The couple spent months apart in the summer and fall of 1942, as Cronkite sailed on convoys to England and North Africa across the submarine-infested waters of the North Atlantic. After a brief December leave in New York City spent with his young wife, Cronkite left again on assignment for England. This time, the two would not be reunited until the end of the war in Europe. Cronkite would console himself during their absence by writing her long, detailed letters—sometimes five in a week—describing his experiences as a war correspondent, his observations of life in wartime Europe, and his longing for her.

A Soldier's Sketchbook
A Soldier's Sketchbook
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Books/Culture, History and Religion/War and Conflict

A Soldier's Sketchbook, an illustrated memoir from a World War II soldier, is drawn from the letters, sketches, snapshots, and mementos of Pvt. Joseph Farris, who left his home of Danbury, Connecticut, and set off to war aboard the U.S.S. General Gordon in October 1944, bound for France as part of Company M, 398th Infantry. Farris wrote more than 800 letters home, and he hewed his artistic talents with sketches and paintings along the way. He also secretly copied officers' notes and, once back home after the war, collected clippings and battlefield accounts, which form a sobering counterpoint to his reassurances to his parents that everything is "swell."

At the height of the Second World War, a young Navy Lieutenant stood at the helm of a U.S. patrol boat and in one ill-starred night made his mark in the annals of history. That young man later became on of the most popular Presidents of the US—John Fitzgerald Kennedy. National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend—a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe. Famed ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard will travel to the Solomon Islands to find the sunken wreck of Kennedy's boat, the PT-109. Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, local islanders and other PT crews on patrol that night, along with powerful footage from the war in the Pacific, we retell the remarkable story of JFK's heroic struggle to rally his crew and get them safely to shore and explore the controversies that have swirled around the boat's sinking.

Pearl Harbor Legacy of Attack DVD
Pearl Harbor Legacy of Attack DVD
(Based on 1 review)
Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/War and Military

National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard tackles one of the enduring mysteries of World War II—the role of a Japanese midget sub in the attack on Pearl Harbor. As he heads out to locate the sub's wreckage, Ballard is intrigued by the possibilities. Was the submarine Pearl Harbor's first casualty? Could it have escaped the U.S. destroyer that fired upon it? And, perhaps most critical, why didn't the sub's presence tip American forces to the approaching attack?

Ballard's quest is only part of the story. Survivors' accounts describe the attack in gripping, horrifying detail, and commentary by esteemed historian Stephen Ambrose sets Pearl Harbor into its historical context. Footage from a remotely operated submersible yields unprecedented glimpses of the U.S.S. Arizona, the downed battleship that still rests in the murky waters of Pearl Harbor.
