The sea hunters by Clive Cussler( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in Italian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Sea Hunters, his first nonfiction book, Cussler explorers the special world of undersea adventure that inspired and has its fictional parallel in the Dirk Pitt novels. He describes his lifelong love for the sea and ships, and how his involvement with the search for John Paul Jones's famous Revolutionary War ship, the Bonhome Richard, led to his establishing the NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency) Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the discovery and preservation of historic shipwrecks. From the more than sixty shipwrecks Cussler and his NUMA volunteers have found, he has chosen the twelve most interesting, whether because of the ships' history, the circumstances of its sinking, or the trouble, frustration, and peril that were encountered while trying to find the sunken wreck. With the same wonderful storytelling that Cussler brings to his novels, he describes his searches for such ships as the Union 24-gun frigate Cumberland, sunk during the Civil War by the Confederate ironclad CSS Virginia (formerly the Merrimack); the Confederate Hunley, which during World War I became the first sub to sink a warship and escape; and the American troop transport Leopoldville, which was destroyed by a German submarine on Christmas Eve, 1944, with huge loss of life; as well as Engine #51, the lost locomotive of Kiowa Creek, which roared off a storm-weakened high bridge in 1878. The wrecks date as far back as 1840 and span the continental United States, the Atlantic Ocean, and the North Sea

Cannae : the experience of battle in the Second Punic War by Gregory Daly( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a summer's day in 216 BC, the forces commanded by the Carthaginian general Hannibal met the Roman army at Cannae. In spite of being far fewer in number, Hannibal's men nevertheless inflicted a savage defeat on the Romans. How this astonishing victory was achieved has been a constant source of fascination for historians ever since. Cannae: The Experience of Battle in the Second Punic War considers what led the two armies to fight that day, and why they adopted the tactics they did. It explores in detail the composition of the armies, both the Roman militia and their Italian allies on one side, and Hannibal's multinational horde of mercenaries and subject and allied levies on the other. It examines how the opposing generals planned their tactics and led their men, and finally it focuses on the experience of battle. Skirmishing, cavalry and infantry combat, and the final encirclement and annihilation of the Roman forces are all considered. Special attention is paid to what it was actually like to be there, and why men fought in such horrific conditions."--Jacket
Berlino 1945 by Antony Beevor( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prosecuzione ideale di Stalingrado, quest'opera racconta un altro assedio: la battaglia casa per casa con la quale l'Armata Rossa conquistò Berlino nel maggio del 1945, ponendo fine alla guerra in Europa. Il racconto, corredato da un ricco apparato illustrativo e cartografico, non si limita all'epilogo, ma abbraccia per intero gli ultimi mesi del conflitto, decisivi e atroci: l'avanzata sovietica e la resistenza accanita delle forze tedesche; la tragedia dei profughi della Prussia orientale; la vendetta dei sovietici in risposta alle atrocità commesse dai nazisti quando occupavano buona parte della Russia; il delirio di Hitler nel bunker in attesa di un miracolo che rovesciasse all'improvviso le sorti della guerra; la rivalità fra gli Alleati; i suicidi e le fughe misteriose dei gerarchi nazisti. Questa tragica vicenda viene rivista alla luce dei nuovi documenti emersi dagli archivi (soprattutto russi, ma anche tedeschi, americani, inglesi francesi e svedesi) e delle molte interviste con i soldati e i civili di entrambi i fronti. Grazie alle sue straordinarie doti di narratore, Antony Beevor riesce a ricostruire gli atti, i pensieri, le scelte dei capi politici e militari e la vita quotidiana, l'odio e il terrore, gli stupri, la violenza disumana e la follia della guerra

The Alexander memoirs, 1940-1945 by Harold Rupert Leofric George Alexander Alexander of Tunis( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was said that before El Alamein the Allies never knew victory, and after El Alamein never knew defeat: much of the credit belongs to Alexander. For decades his contribution to the British efforts in both wars has been overlooked. Here, however, is a comprehensive edition of his personal and candid memoirs, which includes judgments on such men as Montgomery, Patton and Churchill. He also details his role in leading the withdrawal of the 1st Infantry Division at Dunkirk, his dealings with Stilwell in Burma and the bombing of the Monte Cassino abbey."--Jacket
