A Fine Sense of Honor: At War With the Men of the 504th Parachute Infantry From Sicily to the Fall of Germany
In the spring of 1943, the USS George Washington steamed out to sea carrying America’s most precious cargo: its youth. Out of farm fields and cities, dockyards and capitals a formidable fighting force was born and forged. They left their nation bordered by oceans to fight a disciplined, entrenched and combat-experienced army. They leapt from the sky to face the German on the isle of Sicily, the mountains of Italy and plains of Anzio, the fields of Holland and the frozen forests of the Belgian Bulge. This is their story.

SIGNED. From the author of The Campaign for Atlanta and Hood’s Tennessee Campaign comes a comprehensive account of events surrounding one of the Civil War’s bloodiest battles at Allatoona Pass. Just short of five weeks after the fall of Atlanta, a Confederate division of 3,300 men under General Samuel French was sent to capture the Union fort at Allatoona pass protecting the vital Western and Atlantic Railroad in Bartow County, Georgia. Holding it was Brig. Gen. John M. Corse’s small command. The Confederate attack on October 5 was pressed hard, but the Union garrison held in one of the most gallant defenses of the war. Casualties were high in one of the bloodiest small battles of the Civil War. Complete with diary entries, military communications, photographs, battle and fortification maps, and lists of Federal and Confederate forces involved in the campaign.
Acworth: Heritage, History, Hauntings: This book explores Acworth’s history as documented in newspaper accounts, internet searches and ‘urban legends and folklore’ as told and passed down orally and informally. Jim also conducts the Acworth Ghost Tours and many of the book’s stories are included in the tour.
Bestselling author Jennet Conant brings us a stunning account of Julia and Paul Child’s experiences as members of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the Far East during World War II and the tumultuous years when they were caught up in the McCarthy Red spy hunt in the 1950s and behaved with bravery and honor. It is the fascinating portrait of a group of idealistic men and women who were recruited by the citizen spy service, slapped into uniform, and dispatched to wage political warfare in remote outposts in Ceylon, India, and China.
