In the final volume of the six-volume series The Second World War, the tide of war has turned in the Allies' favor--and Japan's surrender is imminent. Even so, the Allies find themselves powerless to halt the advance of Russia and lay the groundwork for lasting peace--and Churchill himself is seeing his time of leadership come to a close. In this book, Churchill provides us a glimpse not only of his own political diminishment at the end of the war, but of his predictions on the state of relations between Russia and the West--later fulfilled by the advent of the Cold War. Churchill's definitive history of World War II is extraordinary--both for the breadth and depth of its historical scope and the personal perspective of its writer, a man who not only lived in these times, but shaped them.

Great Britain. July 1951. Three years ago, Russia went dark. Nothing got in. Nothing got out. The world assumed it was political strife. But it was the Chimera: voracious extraterrestrial invaders. And in December 1949, they burst across the Russian border and poured into Europe. The luckiest humans died. The less fortunate succumbed to an alien virus–and changed. Within a year, most of Europe had fallen. Only Great Britain, after struggling desperately, had kept the conquerors at bay. But as the Chimera were repelled, they were evolving. Building. Planning. America. November 1952. The Chimera have crossed the Atlantic. Their lightning strikes on American borders are devastating. Cities are lost. Small towns overrun. Citizens transformed into monstrosities. Enter Lieutenant Nathan Hale, U.S. Ranger. A veteran of the Chimeran conflict, he is uniquely immune to the alien virus. And when regular troops can’t stem the Chimeran onslaught, Hale and his special-operations team meet the menace head-on. But while they battle the relentless Chimera, deadly power games rage in the White House. And when Hale discovers a far-reaching conspiracy, one with deadly consequences for the human race, his allegiance to country and mankind is stretched to the breaking point. From the Paperback edition.

The term 'the phony war' is often applied to the first months of the Second World War, a term suggesting inaction or passivity. That may have been the perception of the war on land, but at sea it was very different. This new book is a superb survey of the fierce naval struggles, from 1939 up to the invasion of the Norway in April 1940.??The author begins the book with the sinking of the German fleet at Scapa Flow in 1919 and then covers the rebuilding of the Kriegsmarine and parallel developments in the Royal Navy, and summarises relevant advances in European navies. The main part of the book then describes the actions at sea starting with the fall of Poland. There is a complex, intertwined narrative that follows. The sinking of Courageous, the German mining of the British East Coast, the Northern Patrol, the sinking of Rawalpindi, small ship operations in the North Sea and German Bight, the Altmark incident are all covered. Further afield the author deals with the German surface raiders and looks at the early stages of the submarine war in the Atlantic.??As with his previous books, Geirr Haarr has researched extensively in German, British, and other archives, and the work is intended to paint a balanced and detailed picture of this significant period of the war when the opposing naval forces were adapting to a form of naval warfare quite different to that experienced in WWI.

The first volume of Winston Churchill's six-volume memoirs as a statesman and leader during World War II, The Gathering Storm begins with his thoughts on World War I--and how its ending laid the foundations for the next global conflict. As a military and political leader during both wars, Churchill was well placed to give readers a behind-the-scenes tour of history as it was being created, by a man who had a definitive part in shaping it. The volume continues with contemporary letters and memoranda from the British government documenting the country's terrifying descent into war. As Prime Minister during World War II, Churchill possessed a unique understanding of these documents' connection to historical events--and guides the reader through them with vivid narrative skill.

Throughout his esteemed career, Storm Thorgerson revolutionized the art of the album cover. For nearly five decades, Thorgerson designed covers for some of the most famous rock-and-roll bands in the world, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Genesis, the Cranberries, Styx, and many more. His designs transitioned the art form into a new era, one that strayed from simple photos of the artist and focused instead on images that reflected the music. Using an extraordinary coupling of the exotic, the extravagant, and the improvised, Thorgerson conveyed a sense of magic and wonder in each of his distinctive album covers. The Gathering Storm: A Quartet in Several Parts exhibits over 100 of Thorgerson’s many conceptual masterpieces--including his acclaimed covers for Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, Led Zepplin’s Houses of the Holy and In Through the Out Door, and his more recent work for Muse’s Absolution. Complete with Thorgenson’s personal commentary, this unique book is an un-replicable gem that will thrill fans of art, photography, and music alike.
