ONCE UPON A MATELOT: A WW2 Memoir and Spitfire Restoration Story

by William Francis

These are the memoirs of William Francis (Bill) at the start of WW2 as he writes the story of his life and experiences as a young matelot in the Royal Navy when he signed up at tender age of 15 years after lying about his age. His memoirs are about his WW2 service experiences alongside his lifelong passion for aeroplanes and in particular the Spitfire. He writes of his journey towards working with aeroplanes and achieving his dream of owning, restoring and flying his own WW2 Spitfire. Bill, from a very early age was a very driven, determined and unassuming man who worked hard to develop a range of engineering and mechanical skills which would equip him with the knowledge and passion to pursue his dreams. He never hesitated to seek out and accept a range of diverse challenges. It was this drive and passion that followed him throughout his entire life. His journey took him from the Royal Navy into the Fleet Air Arm to ultimately working as an air fitter on the set of the Battle of Britain film in 1969 at Pinewood Studios where he rubbed shoulders with film stars of the day alongside some well-known WW2 heroes. It was whilst working on the film set in 1967as an air fitter that he was able to purchase his beloved Spitfire TB863 as a non-flying project which was used as a prop on the film. After the purchase, the plane was transported on a low-loader to Bill’s family home at Southend-on-Sea, Essex, where Bill began the restoration work almost immediately. The “Spitfire in the Garden” was well known in Southend and even given a special newspaper story in both the Southend Echo and Southend Standard. Needless to say, a WW2 Spitfire in the bungalow’s back garden caused quite a stir and was a great source of novelty and interest at the time.Years later Bill and his family decided to move to Warwickshire to purchase a rundown Service Station which Bill named the Flight Service Station and he developed into a successful business. Many a celebrity stopped for fuel at the Flight Service Station back in the day and Bill loved to tell the stories of these encounters. Bill’s beloved Spitfire was also moved to Warwickshire where the restoration continued and it remained until the early 1980’s. Years later, with advancing age, Bill moved back to Southend to be near the sea again which he always missed and yearned for but he decided he was unable to move the plane back to Southend again or continue the restoration work. He reluctantly sold it before he was able to restore it to full flying condition as he had dreamed. During these relocations and restoration periods the plane also spent some time in both Southend and Duxford Museums. Once again and despite his advancing age Bill soon had a project “on the go” again in his work shop in his Southend garden. These included (and even living on) a WW2 Air Sea Rescue Boat which he was restoring at the Dauntless Boat Yard on Canvey Island. Unfortunately once again life took over and Bill became a full time carer for his wife, Doris, whom he eventually and very sadly lost to cancer. He was grief stricken and lost without his beloved Doris. It was only a few years later when he lost his own life, when still grieving, he went on a journey to seek out an old friend from “the good old days”. He broke his leg in an accident which needed surgery but he did not survive the operation.. He sadly passed away at Southend Hospital leaving his family in shock. His ashes were scattered into the sea at Southend Pier Head, where he loved to be. As his family walked away to catch the Pier train home, as if to say a final farewell, a lone Spitfire was seen overhead flying down the Thames away from London. No one knows why it was there or where it came from that day but it was a fitting final farewell for a man who devoted his life and dreams to his beloved Spitfire - TB863. The Spitfire is now owned by the Temora Air Museum and is fully restored and flying in Australia. Bill would be a very proud man.

Carlos Hathcock : American Sniper

by Amy Paulsen

There are few names at the top of the list of military war heroes as well known or inspiring than Carlos Hathcock. His career, skills and tactics have had an enormous impact on military strategies across the armed services. A devoted Marine, he couldn’t have known how much he would change the face of military strategy for not only his branch but the Army and Navy as well. A war hero, landmine survivor, multiple sclerosis sufferer, Sergeant Hathcock certainly had an impressive life. The stories of his escapades in the jungles of Vietnam precede the quiet and gentle man and serve as a startling contradiction. He was a sniper who didn’t like killing, but he was damn good at it.

The Cossacks (Illustrated)

by

Cossacks are a group of predominantly East Slavic-speaking people who became known as members of democratic, self-governing, semi-military communities, predominantly located in Ukraine and in Russia. They inhabited sparsely populated areas and islands in the lower Dnieper, Don, Terek, and Ural river basins and played an important role in the historical and cultural development of both Russia and Ukraine. By the end of the 18th century, Cossack nations had been transformed into a special military estate (Sosloviye), "a military class," similar to the knights of medieval Europe in feudal times.In The Cossacks, William Penn Cresson traces the history and culture of these legendary Slavic warriors.

World War 2 Secret Missions: Brave & Daring Secret Missions of WW2 (Holocaust, Soldier Stories, Auschwitz, Hitler, Concentration Camps, Military Missions, Military Strategy)

by Raymond Jennings

World War II was much more than just a war among several nations. With the war came new forms of warfare, covert missions, special operations, sabotage, destruction, and espionage and so on among the enemies. Spies were employed, plans were formulated, and disguises were put up by both the Axis and the Allies to obtain information or to hinder the progress of the war. This resulted in some of the most unconventional, creative and ingenious operations that played an important role in shaping the course of the war. There were several secret missions and raids that were carried out between the Allies and the Axis powers during the Second World War.

Listed in this book are just few of the several raids and covert missions that the war gave birth to. This book is written in such a way as to give an overview of the few missions. Each chapter throws light on one single mission and gives a broad view to help facilitate the understanding of the reader.

KIM PHILBY: Our Man in Moscow

by Christian Shakespeare

Your best friend is a traitor.

That is what I thought when I researched this work. I try to reach new depths, to get to the wider part of the story to give you the thrills you as the reader expect from a story.

So here I am writing another book.

I’ll be truthful this one is going to shock you. It will make you think uncomfortably about your friends – and see them in a new light. After reading this I doubt if you will ever trust anyone again. Every time you go out, every time you meet people all you will see is dishonesty.

That’s right, dishonesty.

When someone works in the world of secret espionage they expect it first-hand. The lies and the duplicity committed by a man with no conscience to the consequences of his actions. Someone who simply holds a higher regard for an idea than for human life holds pure evil rationalised as nobility. Many friends simply refuse to believe it or could not say anything without the risk of losing everything.
Treachery was part and parcel in the tense days of the Cold War where nobody can ever be trusted unless they were of the right class, the right accent and of the right connections.

But that is no guarantee…

In January of 1963, in the age of atomic bombs, the Beatles, and flower power, a man slips out of Beirut and flees to the Soviet Union. For almost 30 years Kim Philby, senior intelligence officer unscrupulously spied for Moscow, wilfully leaking sensitive documents while betraying his friends, colleagues, loved ones and ultimately his country.

For over 10 years he was close to the top of the intelligence game, passing intense secrets, protecting his friends and ensuring the Soviet Union received high level information on state secrets. Kim Philby was both a charmer and a calculator, sending many to their deaths through his unique position. This spy, one of the most damaging of the Cold War, ensured the balance remained between east and west yet his masters never really trusted him.

Kim Philby, spy, cold killer and a complicated traitor.

The scale of the hypocrisy is hard to imagine, scary for you and I to appreciate just how one man could operate with a completely split personality to affect the outcome that could potentially have tipped us all into a nuclear World War III. A man just like Kim Philby.

Dare you read what happened to this traitor? Download a sample or buy it today.

See you on the other side.

Red Zone: Five Bloody Years in Baghdad (Blood and Treasure Book 2)

by Oliver Poole

This eyewitness account reveals the truth about Baghdad's Red Zone during the American occupation, and describes the reality of daily life as the city descended into bloody civil war. How do you cheer on your national football team when you're terrified to step outside your front door? What's it like to go to the shops when your biggest fear is being blown up by a suicide bomber? Or risk being shot at a roadblock when you drive your pregnant wife to hospital?

As the Daily Telegraph's Baghdad bureau chief, Oliver Poole first arrived in Iraq in 2003, crossing the Kuwait border in the bank of a US armoured vehicle. Once in Baghdad his home would become a hotel room in the middle of the city's Red Zone, one of the most dangerous places on earth. He tells how the war changed this young Englishman’s life - and also the life of his interpreter Ahmed, whose relations were among those slaughtered and who ultimately had to flee Iraq – with Oliver’s help – in a vehicle filled with his possessions and family.

Oliver travelled with British and US troops, witnessed first-hand the bloody impact of car bombs and had his own offices destroyed by a suicide bomber. Finally in November 2006, with his newspaper closing down his office, he joined the masses escaping Iraq through Baghdad airport.

This is the story of that war, and that city, during that time.

CIA Mission to an Internal HELL: A True Story of Intrigue

by Fairlie Sweet

This is the strange and yet factual story of an American soldier’s voluntary involvement in a mission to provide training to Montagnard Tribesmen in their villages somewhere in the mountainous terrain of Vietnam near the Laotian border. It has been more than fifty years since the mission took place, and with the secrecy recently lifted on the story it can now be told by one of the few persons involved.The story chronicles a virtually unknown part of the intrigue and courage associated with a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation that simply did not or could not function as it was intended to do.Later research indicates that the operation probably involved persons by the hundreds, mostly young soldiers, and by early 1961 the death rate was approaching the point of raising suspicions by distraught mothers and the American press. It was then that the CIA decided to send Japanese War Criminals, labeled as advisors, to perform this undertaking. Unfortunately those efforts failed miserably, with the Japanese Advisors simply disappearing from the face of the Earth and in a similar manner to the American soldiers. Not even one of these so-called Japanese Advisors is documented to have ever been seen or heard from again.At a base somewhere near Vietnam, upon his refusal to re-enlist, he believes he was given a drug similar to LSD in order to block out any sane remembrance of this ill-fated mission—a CIA Mission to an Internal Hell.Read his story as he lived it! Read about the continuing issues including a covert and possibly unplanned excursion into North Korean! See the photos for yourself! Feel the pain and anguish as he attempts to blend back into society. Be with him while he pretends nothing is wrong at the same time as facing day-to-day challenges and working his way through college to receive three degrees including one in law.Other books by Fairlie Sweet include:Landon takes an Unforgettable JourneyLandon suffers MisfortuneLandon is DevastatedLandon remembers Earlier TimesLandon must PersevereLandon goes to WARLandon must endure the TurmoilLandon barely survivesLandon is Tried for TreasonLandon Forsaken in SpaceLandon Controller of Time

Four Weeks in the Trenches

by Fritz Kreisler

This brief record of the fighting on the Eastern front in the great war is the outcome of a fortunate meeting. The writer chanced to be dining with Mr. Kreisler soon after his arrival in this country, after his dismissal from the hospital where he recovered from his wound. For nearly two hours he listened, thrilled and moved, to the great violinist's modest, vivid narrative of his experiences and adventures. It seemed in the highest degree desirable that the American public should have an opportunity of reading this narrative from the pen of one in whose art so many of us take a profound interest. It also was apparent that since so little of an authentic nature had been heard from the Russo-Austrian field of warfare, this story would prove an important contribution to the contemporary history of the war.After much persuasion, Mr. Kreisler reluctantly acceded to the suggestion that he write out his personal memories of the war for publication. He has completed his narrative in the midst of grave difficulties, writing it piecemeal in hotels and railway trains in the course of a concert tour through the country. It is offered by the publishers to the public with confidence that it will be found one of the most absorbing and informing narratives of the war that has yet appeared.

The Expansion of Europe 1642-1789

by Wilbur Abbott

WHEN in the last months of 1648 was signed the great peace which brought to an end the Thirty Years' War and with it the mediaeval polity which it finally destroyed; as the army of diplomats whose work it was dispersed to their respective governments, the awe-inspiring mass of documents which formed the fruit of their long labors might have led men to believe that Europe would hasten to enjoy the peace which she so needed and which her people for the most part so greatly desired. But whatever hopes of quiet were entertained, were already far on the way to disappointment; for the Europe to which the diplomats returned was even then altered or altering before their eyes and already shaping itself for new conflict. Scarcely a state of any consequence prepared to recruit its resources by the arts of peace; scarcely a royal house but faced a crisis in its fortunes; scarcely a people but was stirring in unrest or already engaged in revolution. So far from ushering in a period of peaceful progress the Westphalian treaties became the starting point for new and bloody rivalries...
