Genre: History

The United States experienced its most harrowing military disaster of World War II not in 1941 at Pearl Harbor but in the period from 1942 to 1943, in Atlantic coastal waters from Newfoundland to the Caribbean. Sinking merchant ships with impunity, German U-boats threatened the lifeline between the United States and Britain, very nearly denying the Allies their springboard onto the European Continent--a loss that would have effectively cost the Allies the war. In Turning the Tide, author Ed Offley tells the gripping story of how, during a twelve-week period in the spring of 1943, a handful of battle-hardened American, British, and Canadian sailors turned the tide in the Atlantic. Using extensive archival research and interviews with key survivors, Offley places the reader at the heart of the most decisive maritime battle of World War II.

Genre: History

Excerpt from The Turn of the Tide, American Operations at Cantigny, Château Thierry, and the Second Battle of the Marne In justice to our gallant and indomitable Allies who bore the brunt of the War and denied the Central Allies the ultimate victory while we'were preparing to assist in attaining it, I have been careful to avoid the all too common error of overrating our physical contribution to the result. However great the moral effect of our participation in the fighting on the Marne may have been, and it is hard to overestimate that effect, the time has come when in justice to ourselves as well as to our Allies we should view the events of the War sanely, and endeavor to see them in their true perspective. Surely the truth is glorious enough, and there is no cause for our pride to suffer at its telling. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
