His wife, Cincinnati Observer reporter Elizabeth Ault, races her husband to find Brown first, causing friction between husband and wife. But this time Elizabeth plays with fire. Little does Elizabeth know she will quickly be transformed from pursuer to prey, and that events will take place that change the lives of the Aults forever.

Landing Ship, Tank Landing Ship, Tank (LST) 1942-2002
Written By Gordon L. Rottman

The Landing Ship Tank (LST) is one of the most famous of the many World War II amphibious warfare ships. Capable of discharging its cargo directly on to shore and extracting itself, the LST provided the backbone of all Allied landings between 1943 and 1945, notably during the D-Day invasion. Through its history, the LST saw service from late 1942 until late 2002, when the US Navy decommissioned the USS Frederick (LST-1184), the last ship of its type. This book reveals the development and use of the LST, including its excellence beyond its initial design expectations.

D-Day 1944 (1) Omaha Beach D-Day 1944 (1) Omaha Beach
Written By Steven J. Zolaga


The first title in Osprey's survey of the D-Day landings of World War II (1939-1945). The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest amphibious military operation ever mounted. The greatest armada the world had ever seen was assembled to transport the Allied invasion force across the Channel and open the long-awaited second front against Hitler’s Third Reich. Of the landings on the five assault beaches, Omaha Beach was the only one ever in doubt. Within moments of the first wave landing a third of the assault troops were casualties. Yet by the end of D-Day the Atlantic Wall had been breached and the US Army’s V Corps was firmly entrenched on French soil.

A great personal account of the time spent in the U.S. Navy on ships during Vietnam.  Part of every watch he stood in the service was spent scribbling in one of those faded green military log books, writing down the anecdotes of his day and recording the incidents that marked off the minutes of his life for four years.  These letters and log book entries form the backbone of this book, as they are rife with particulars that will carry the reader effortlessly back to a turbulent time and a different world.

Second Pearl Harbor Book The Second Pearl Harbor
Written by Gene Eric Salecher


In May 1944 the navy had assembled a fleet of landing ship tanks (LSTs) in the West Loch section of Pearl Harbor. On May 21, an explosion tore through the calm afternoon sky, spreading fire and chaos. When the fires had been brought under control, six LSTs had been lost, many others were badly damaged, and more than 500 military personnel had been killed or injured. To ensure the success of those still able to depart for the invasion the navy at once issued a censorship order, which has kept this disaster from public scrutiny for seventy years.
