Book Summary:

The Battle of Midway is traditionally held as the point when Allied forces gained advantage over the Japanese. In Islands of Destiny, acclaimed historian and military intelligence expert John Prados points out that the Japanese forces quickly regained strength after Midway and continued their assault undaunted. Taking this surprising fact as the start of his inquiry, he began to investigate how and when the Pacific tide turned in the Allies’ favor. Using archives of WWII intelligence reports from both sides, Prados offers up a compelling reassessment of the true turning in the Pacific: not Midway, but the fight for the Solomon Islands. Combat in the Solomons saw a series of surface naval battles, including one of the key battleship-versus-battleship actions of the war; two major carrier actions; daily air duels, including the aerial ambush in which perished the famous Japanese naval commander Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku; and many other hair-raising exploits. Commencing with the Allied invasion of Guadalcanal, Prados shows how and why the Allies beat Japan on the sea, in the air, and in the jungles.

Book Summary:

This is the complete history of Hawaii. It is the fast-moving narrative of an island nation whose settlement antedates the arrival of European pioneers by a thousand years, and whose destiny it was to become the fiftieth star in the flag of the United States of America. It tells how the Islanders have created a modern-day miracle through education, economic progress, and financial growth in the past 150 years. Olive Wyndette became fascinated by personal contacts with the native Hawaiians during her residence in Honolulu and, as a result, planned this book on the living history of Hawaii. The little—known but dramatic story of the prehistoric period is told in the Prologue. The ensuring text tells how Captain James Cook discovers the Islands, naming them after the Earl of Sandwich. Kamehameha I (the Conqueror) rises to power and unifies the islands through a series of bloody, inter–Island wars. The New England missionaries arrive and are eventually permitted to build the Islands' first Christian church. Following the establishment of a constitutional government, the Islands become the coveted prize of powerful European nations. Finally, annexation of the Islands to the United States is realized in 1898. The Epilogue covers the developments of the twentieth century.

Book Summary:

From as early as 2000 BC, the islands of Great Britain and Ireland attracted the migrating Hebrew people. Many students of early European history have been puzzled by the persistent westward trek, as though some irresistible magnetism drove those tribes with wanderlust toward the islands of the west. It was not that they were seeking new pastures, for there were rich lands on the way. It was an inner power and their calling as Gods people that compelled them to seek the islands of their destiny. In The Islands of Destiny, author William Walker reveals the British peoples glorious identity and explains Isaiahs writings in connection with its history. Originally prepared as a series of lectures, this historical study, complete with illustrations, explores the ancient Chronicles of Eri, the history of Gaal Sciot of Iber, early Britons, and the British, Irish, Spanish, Scottish, and American connection to the birth of the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic nations, focusing on the British Isles and Ireland.

Book Summary:

Wings of Destiny fills a significant gap in Australian World War II history by taking the reader beyond the Kokoda trail and into the skies over New Guinea. The book is a biography of Wing Commander Charles Learmonth. Learmonth was involved in the air search for the HMAS Sydney, the air war in New Guinea, the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, and the tragedy of the Beaufort bomber accidents. Author Charles Page takes the reader with Learmonth in his twin-engined Boston attack bomber, She's Apples, describing the brave deeds of No.22 Squadron and its 'Boston Boys.' As well as being a famous pilot, Learmonth was an incurable romantic, and from his tent in New Guinea he wrote to his wife Marjorie almost every day. These letters, combined with his diaries and log book, form the basis of much of this book.

Book Summary:

“A truly extraordinary saga . . . The characterizations are consistently superb, and [Hobb] animates everything with love for and knowledge of the sea.”—Booklist As Bingtown slides toward disaster, clan matriarch Ronica Vestrit, branded a traitor, searches for a way to bring the city’s inhabitants together against a momentous threat. Meanwhile, Althea Vestrit, unaware of what has befallen Bingtown and her family, continues her perilous quest to track down and recover her liveship, the Vivacia, from the ruthless pirate Kennit. Bold though it is, Althea’s scheme may be in vain. For her beloved Vivacia will face the most terrible confrontation of all as the secret of the liveships is revealed. It is a truth so shattering, it may destroy the Vivacia and all who love her, including Althea’s nephew, whose life already hangs in the balance. Praise for Robin Hobb and the Liveship Traders Trilogy “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “A major work of high fantasy, reading like a cross between Tolkien and Patrick O’Brian . . . one of the finest fantasy sagas to bridge the millennium.”—Publishers Weekly “Rich, complex . . . [Hobb’s] plotting is complex but tightly controlled, and her descriptive powers match her excellent visual imagination. But her chief virtue is that she delineates character extremely well.”—Interzone
