Rickover : father of the nuclear Navy by Thomas B Allen( )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hyman G. Rickover was not long removed from his Jewish roots in Poland when he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1922. After a respectable career spent mostly in unglamorous submarine and engineering billets, he took command of the U.S. Navy's nuclear propulsion program and revived his career, being retired - involuntarily - some thirty years later in early 1982. He was not only the architect of the nuclear Navy but also its builder. In the process, he erected a network of power and influence that rivaled those who were elected to high office, and that protected him from them when his controversial methods became objectionable or, as critics would suggest, undermined the nation's vital interests. Authors Thomas B. Allen and Norman Polmar, whose full-length biography of Rickover (in manuscript in 1981) was consulted by the Reagan Administration during the decision to remove him from active duty, are eminently qualified to write an essential treatment on the controversial genius of Admiral Rickover."--Jacket

The Bonus Army : an American epic by Paul Dickson( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2020 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Depression summer of 1932, some 45,000 veterans of World War I descended on Washington to demand the bonus promised them eight years earlier for their wartime service. They lived in shantytowns, white and black together, protested and rallied for their cause. Roy Wilkins saw the model for racial integration here; J. Edgar Hoover built his reputation against the radicals. President Hoover, Army Chief of Staff Douglas MacArthur, and others feared the protesters would turn violent after the Senate defeated the "bonus bill" that the House had passed. On July 28, tanks rolled as troops evicted the marchers. Newspapers and newsreels showed graphic images of American soldiers driving out their former comrades in arms. Democratic candidate Franklin Roosevelt said to an adviser, "This will elect me," though bonus armies would plague him as well. The march inspired Congress to pass the G.I. Bill of Rights in 1944.--From publisher description
