“Two yellowing envelopes in a long-untouched file, unmistakably of U.S. Army origin but addressed to a North Carolina housewife, caught the attention of her son as he sorted her papers after her death.

The postmarks, Virginia Beach, VA., and dated in 1942, were puzzling, as was the official return address: 111th Infantry C.T., Mobile Defense Force. While the 111th regimental combat team could be deciphered, the Mobile Defense Force was not a recognizable term.

The letters inside instructed her on the duties of a coast watcher, and evoked memories stored since childhood: The sickening thump of torpedoes striking U.S. ships just off the Currituck Outer Banks and the flare of flames, particularly when a tanker was hit, that were clear even to a youngster on his front porch 8 miles inland. Each boom and pillar of fire revealed that more men were dying in the freezing waters off North Carolina’s barrier islands that winter.

How did the United States get into such straits that its life was threatened as the Axis juggernauts rolled across Western Europe and Asia? What transpired during the crucial years when the outcome of the war could go against the United States as Axis aggression flooded the Atlantic with U-boats striving to cut the stream of ships laden with weapons, troops, and food flowing to the beleaguered British Isles – the last Allied outpost near the Continent?

How did the Allies achieve victory first against the U-boats, then the war, for as Napoleon observed: “”It is only a step from victory to disaster.

Military History – SHOT DOWN

Shot DownSHOT DOWN
The true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth
By Steve Snyder
Publisher: Sea Breeze Publishing
Published: August 2014
ISBN: 978-0986076008
ASIN: B00N5CL5XG
Genre: Non-Fiction, History, Military, WWII
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), pdf, epub, ebook, mobi, kindle

Belgium … February 8, 1944 … Shot Down and Alive

For the first time, the full and complete story of the B-17 Flying Fortress Susan Ruth is shared in unbelievable detail. Author Steve Snyder’s story of his father, Lieutenant Howard Snyder, and the Susan Ruth crew, provides in-depth details about many aspects of World War II few understand or know about including the:

• separation for young families as men went off to war;
• training before heading to foreign soil;
• military combat operations;
• underground and resistance and what Lt. Snyder did when he joined it;
• German atrocities toward captured crew and civilians;
• behind-the-scenes stories of the Belgium civilians who risked all to save American flyers who were in the air one moment, spiraling down in flames the next;
• creation and dedication of the monument to the Susan Ruth and its crew located in Macquenoise, Belgium in 1989

Shot Down was created from the vast number of letters and journals of Howard Snyder; diaries of men and women on the ground who rescued, sheltered and hid the crew; and interviews conducted by historians. Centered around the 306th Bomb Group in Thurleigh, England, it is informative, insightful and captivating.

For most, 70 years is a long time ago. World War II fades in importance as each year goes by. Shot Down moves history out of the footnotes into reality, keeping the stories of real people alive as they experience being shot down. You are there, almost holding your breath as Lt. Snyder gets his crew out of his B-17 when bailing out over Nazi occupied Europe.

Biography/Ancient History – I, Livia: The Counterfeit Criminal

I LiviaI, Livia: The Counterfeit Criminal
Author: Mary Mudd
ISBN: 978-1412046060
Genre: Biography; Ancient History; Empowered Women

History has portrayed Livia Drusilla, the third and much beloved wife of Caesar Augustus, as a conniving, Borgia-like criminal, maintaining that Livia killed or incapacitated Augustus’ descendants through his previous wife to promote the political career of her son by a former husband. Author Robert Graves, in his novel, I, Claudius, based his fictitious rendering of Livia upon this malevolent representation. The book and the British Broadcasting Corporation adaptation of it for television perpetuated the image of Livia as a devious dynastic murderess in the popular mind.

I, Livia: The Counterfeit Criminal aspires to correct the misconception, and present an accurate assessment of this much-maligned woman. The study’s comfortably readable style is intended for general audiences.
