  • Turning Point: The Battle for Milne Bay 1942 - Japan's First Land Defeat in World War II

    September 1942 marked the high point of Axis conquest in World War II. In the Pacific, Japan's soldiers had seemed unstoppable.

In the first battle, the Eighth Army narrowly halted the advance of the Germans during the summer of 1942. However, the stalemate left Nazi troops within striking distance of the Suez Canal, which would...

  • World War II Turning Points: The Secret Decisions, Forgotten Blunders and Cover-Ups That Really Determined Its Outcome

    World War II Turning Points is an alternative history of mankind's most crucial military struggle.

Instead, this unconventional revision is the result of newly-discovered and often neglected information about the sometimes obscure men, bizarre weapons, under-appreciated decisions, forgotten blunders and near misses that really determined the course and outcome of the Second World War. The author, a U.S. Depa...

  • The End of 1942: A Turning Point in World War II and in the Comprehension of the Final Solution?

    During the second half of 1942, several events signaled a shift on the fronts of World War II.
