World War Ii Radio Heroes from the Author: Lisa L. Spahr. More than 60 years had passed before I found them. Dozens and dozens of letters written to my family during WWII- from total strangers- to tell my great-grandmother that her son had been captured and was being held as a POW. How did they know this? Well, it seems the short-wave radio had held all the answers. POWs were allowed to state their names and hometowns on the radio, and sometimes relay a short message to their families. Scores of Americans, listening to the German propaganda from so far away, heard my grandfather's information, and took it upon themselves to write to my great-grandmother. All of these dear people wanted to give my great-grandmother a measure of comfort to know her son was alive. That was only the beginning of my journey.

The Early Shortwave Stations from the Author: Jerome S. Berg. In July 1923, less than three years after Westinghouse station KDKA signed on, company engineer Frank Conrad began regular simulcasting of its programs on a frequency in the newly-discovered shortwave range. It was an important event in a technological revolution that would make dependable worldwide radio communication possible for the first time. In subsequent years, countless stations in practically all countries followed suit, taking to shortwave to extend reception domestically or reach audiences thousands of miles away. Shortwave broadcasting would also have an important role in World War II and in the Cold War. In this, his fourth book on shortwave broadcast history, the author revisits the period of his earlier work, On the Short Waves, 1923-1945, and focuses on the stations that were on the air in those early days. The year-by-year account chronicles the birth and operation of the large international broadcasters, as well as the numerous smaller stations that were a great attraction to the DXers, or long-distance radio enthusiasts, of the time. With more than 100 illustrations and extensive notes, bibliography and index, the book is also a valuable starting point for further study and research.

Excerpt: Japanese history textbook controversies refers to controversial content in government-approved history textbooks used in the secondary education (junior high schools and high schools) of Japan. The controversies primarily concern what some international observers perceive to be Japanese nationalist efforts to whitewash the actions of the Empire of Japan during World War II. Also at issue is the constitutionality of the governmentally-approved textbook depictions of World War II, Japanese war crimes, and Japanese imperialism during the first half of the 20th century. The history textbook controversies have been an issue of deep concern both domestically and internationally, particularly in states which were victims of Imperial Japan during the war. Despite the efforts of the nationalist textbook reformers, by the late 1990s the most common Japanese schoolbooks ...

Eine H Here Pflicht from the Author: Adam Makos. Sie sind erbitterte Feinde, als sie am 20. Dezember 1943 in über acht Kilometern Höhe aufeinandertreffen: der Amerikaner Charlie Brown in seinem vom Flakfeuer schwer beschädigten B-17-Bomber und der deutsche Jagdflieger Franz Stigler, der den gegnerischen Piloten einfach nur vom Himmel holen müsste, – doch er tut es nicht. Stattdessen gibt Stigler dem Bomber Geleit über die deutsche Flugabwehr hinweg bis auf die Nordsee hinaus und rettet Brown und seiner gesamten Besatzung das Leben. Die Geschichte der beiden Fliegerasse ist Legende. Und sie ist wahr. Der Historiker und Journalist Adam Makos hat sich, unterstützt von Starautor Larry Alexander, jahrelang bis ins kleinste Detail mit den Ereignissen beschäftigt und die Beteiligten getroffen. Eine höhere Pflicht ist kein Buch über einen kurzen Augenblick des Mitleids, sondern ein Buch darüber, was es bedeutet, in einem Krieg Pilot zu sein, und was für einer Pflichtverletzung es gleichkam, so zu handeln, wie es Franz Stigler richtig erschien. Es ist ein Buch auch über die Freundschaft, die Charlie Brown und Franz Stigler seit ihrem Wiedersehen 1990 verband – bis zu ihrem Tod 2008. Die wunderbare Geschichte eines deutschen Helden.

Space Patrol from the Author: Jean-Noel Bassior. Before Star Trek, there was Space Patrol. Science fiction television has its roots in this live, action-packed series that captured the imagination of Americans from 1950 to 1955, when space travel was just a dream. This book explores the freewheeling spirit of live TV, where anything could go wrong before millions of viewers--and often did. It spotlights (often in personal interviews) the risk-taking Space Patrol cast and crew who laid vital groundwork for television today. Included are episode logs for both television and radio shows as well as a complete guide to Space Patrol memorabilia.

Alles Licht Das Wir Nicht Sehen from the Author: Anthony Doerr. Saint-Malo 1944: Marie-Laure, ein junges, blindes Mädchen, ist mit ihrem Vater, der am "Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle" arbeitet, aus dem besetzten Paris zu ihrem kauzigen Onkel in die Stadt am Meer geflohen. Einst hatte er ihr ein Modell der Pariser Nachbarschaft gebastelt, damit sie sich besser zurechtfinden kann. Nun ist in einem Modell Saint-Malos, der vielleicht kostbarste Schatz aus dem Museum versteckt, den auch die Nazis jagen. Werner Hausner, ein schmächtiger Waisenjunge aus dem Ruhrgebiet, wird wegen seiner technischen Begabung gefördert, auf eine Napola geschickt und dann in eine Wehrmachtseinheit gesteckt, die mit Peilgeräten Feindsender aufspürt, über die sich der Widerstand organisiert. Während Marie-Laures Vater von den Deutschen verschleppt und verhört wird, dringt Werners Einheit nach Saint-Malo vor, auf der Suche nach dem Sender, über den Etienne, Marie-Laures Onkel, die Résistance mit Daten versorgt & Kunstvoll und spannend, mit einer wunderschönen Sprache und einem detaillierten Wissen um die Kriegsereignisse, den Einsatz des Radios, Widerstandscodes, Jules Verne und vieles andere erzählt Anthony Doerr mit einer Reihe unvergesslicher Figuren eine Geschichte aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg, und vor allem die Geschichte von Marie-Laure und Werner, zwei Jugendlichen, deren Lebenswege sich für einen folgenreichen Augenblick kreuzen.
