Description:
2nd printing. "...the story of the thirty-six-hour-long ordeal of the crew of the S-Five. It is a story of the courage, endurance, and incredible resourcefulness of the entire forty-man crew: of Charlie Grisham, the sub's executive officer, a "mustang" promoted to the navy's officer corps from the enlisted ranks; of Chief Electrician Ramon Otto, whose baby daughter was born just days before the S-Five's departure; of Machinist's Mate Fred Whitehead, who at the last minute is able to dog the all-important watertight hatches shut; of Chief of the Boat Percy Fox, who redeems himself for the failure to close the induction valve that sank the S-Five; and of the sub's indomitable captain, Savvy Cooke, leading his crew through sheer force of will." "By shifting the water in the sub toward the bow torpedo room, Cooke is able to stand the 240-foot-long sub on its nose, bringing it close to vertical, and, using trigonometry, he calculates that at least part of the boat's stern is now above sea level.

Description:
From the back of d.j. and book: "This is the story of America's first Streamliner, Union Pacific's "Little Zip" M-10000, and the era of early Streamliner development on the Union Pacific prior to World War II. Responding to mounting auto and bus competition, the Streamliner offered Union Pacific Railroad's top management a chance to bring passengers back to the railroad. Fully articulated, it was a completely new type of high-speed railway train, graceful in form, highly pleasing in color harmonies, and preeminent in utility, convenience and comfort. In the spring of 1934, Union Pacific's new High-Speed Stream Line train went on a 13,000 mile 22-state tour. Not only was the M-10000 absolutely revolutionary and futuristic in design, but a bright yellow spot of hope in the very depths of the Great Depression. Over the next seven years, the M-10000 would operate between Kansas City, Missouri, and Salina, Kansas, where it would be remembered as the 'City of Salina'. This volume covers not only the M-10000… Read More

Description:
Tables of organization and equipment for: Great Britain, Germany, Japan, United States, U.S.S.R. and others, including France, Italy, Poland. From the Introduction: Invariably, the wargamer is faced with the problem of how to organize his miniatures into units corresponding to "the real thing". The purpose of this book is to present a Table of Organization and Equipment (TO&E) for several basic ground combat units found in small armies that directly participated in World War II. Each T.O.E. chart identifies division to platoon sized units that can be easily duplicated in any scale. The particular scale of equipment used by the wargamer to reproduce an "army" is his or her own choice. These 81 TO&E Charts apply to all scales.
