Genre: History

One of the most charming, enterprising, and charismatic characters in the story of World War II' - Jilly Cooper 'Prepare to read this fantastic story in one sitting. Very highly recommended' - Sea Breezes 'A well-researched, carefully crafted and hugely enjoyable account of one of the most remarkable animals to play a part in World War II' - Aberdeen Press & Journal This is the remarkable - and bestselling - story of one of the Second World War's most unusual animal heroes - a 14-stone St Bernard dog who became global mascot for the Royal Norwegian Forces and a symbol of freedom and inspiration for Allied troops throughout Europe, and captured hearts on both sides of the North Sea even sixty years after his death. From a happy and carefree puppyhood spent as a family pet in the Norwegian fishing town of Honningsvåg, the gentle giant Bamse followed his master at the outbreak of the war to become a registered crew member of the mine-sweeper Thorodd. Often donning his own steel helmet as he took his place in the Torodd's bow gun turret, Bamse cut an impressive figure and made a huge contribution to the morale of the crew, and he gallantly saved the lives of two of them. After Norway fell to the Germans in 1940, the Thorodd operated from Dundee and Montrose, where Bamse became a well-known and much-loved figure, shepherding the Thorodd's crew-members back to the boat at pub closing time, travelling on the local buses, breaking up fights and even taking part in football matches. Mourned both by locals and Norwegians when he died in 1944, Bamse's memory has been kept alive both in Norway, where he is still regarded as a national hero, and in Montrose, where a larger-than-life statue of him was unveiled in 2006 by hrh Prince Andrew. Written from extensive source material and eyewitness accounts, Sea Dog Bamse is a fitting tribute to the extraordinary life of an extraordinary dog.

The Truth About The Titanic Illustrated Annotated Edition

Author: Archibald Gracie
Publisher: Jazzybee Verlag
ISBN: 9783849621667
Release Date: 2012
Genre:

This commemorative edition includes all the photos from the first edition of this unbelievable account as well as a detailed essay about the history of steamships and steamship lines up to the year 1912. Furthermore this volume features an interactive table-of-contents as well as perfect formatting for 21st century electronic reading devices 'The Truth About the Titanic', by Colonel Archibald Gracie, is a striking recital of the monumental shipwreck, by the sole survivor of all the men passengers, "stationed during the loading of six or more life-boats with women and children on the port side of the ship.'' The book is written as a tribute and testimony to the "heroism on the part of all concerned." Colonel Gracie refutes many of the press reports of the disaster, as for instance, the Captain and the First Officer shooting themselves, for which statement he says there is no direct testimony. The story of the author's marvelous escape beggars the imagination and gives proof of a remarkable telepathic communication with his wife. Horrible are the scenes described and they bring vividly before you the heroism and endurance that were borne until the arrival of the Carpathia. Some of the testimony taken before the Senate Committee and the British Courts of Inquiry is analyzed and the story of each lifeboat is given according to the testimony given and the different affidavits. The part devoted to J. Bruce Ismay's testimony will be of especial interest to readers. Colonel Gracie's death, eight months after the world's greatest marine disaster, was due to the exposure and strain received at that time, and the restraint is a marked feature in this vivid account of an unprecedented ocean disasterwhich occasioned the sympathy of the world.
