I Flew for the Fuhrer records the heights and depths of that epic journey in the incredible career of Heinz Knoke, a gallant and indestructible fighter pilot. Knoke entered front-line service with the famous Fifty Second Fighter Wing in January 1941. For the next four years he tilted against overwhelming Allied strength from German bases throughout Europe. His victims included nineteen four-engine bombers, the toughest targets in the sky. ------------------------------------------Knoke was innovative and determined; among his more daring exploits was the first air-to-air bombing of U.S. formations. Without any official authorization, Knoke armed his Messerschmitt 109 with a 500-pound bomb, which he dropped into a B-17 formation. One B-17 was destroyed and others were damaged, a triumph that earned him the personal congratulations of Reich Marshal Herman Goring. As German strength declined, there began the usual harassment from Headquarters, trying to extract from the blood of the pilots the resources that poor planning and over-ambitious war aims had squandered. Yet it is in this latter part of the war, when he and his comrades were pitted against hundreds of American fighters, that Knoke's character and ability stand out. His daily sorties saw victories, but also endless defeats; Knoke was shot down many times, but he always came back to fight again, flying obsolete fighters against impossible odds. "The inescapable fact is that on the technical side our performance is inferior in every respect," he writes. "Such successes as are still being achieved in the face of these overwhelming odds are due simply and solely to the excellent morale and fighting spirit of our aircrews. We need more aircraft, better engines-and fewer Headquarters." ---------------------------------------The overextended Luftwaffe kept its pilots in the line until they died. Downed pilots routinely staggered from their parachute harnesses into cockpits to re-enter the fray. Only twenty six days after bailing out of his Messerschmitt and suffering a fractured skull and vertebrae and a variety of other injuries, Knoke hobbled on crutches out to his fighter to accompany his Flight to a new assignment in Holland. He was immediately shot down by intercepting Spitfires. In the end, it was usually only a serious but nonfatal wound that permitted a Luftwaffe pilot to survive. Knoke suffered his in late 1944 at the hands of Czech partisans, when the car in which he was traveling struck a mine. After flying four hundred missions and serving as the youngest Squadron Commander in the German Air Force, he spent the final months of the war on the ground as an Air Liaison Officer, an ardent patriot distressed by a growing awareness of the horrors of the Nazi regime he was defending. Heinz Knoke is officially credited with thirty-three combat victories. The figure of fifty-two victories quoted in the book's foreword arose from a misinterpretation of a wartime document., University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2013. Softcover. Brand new book. The Army was much embarrassed by the absence of the cavalry," Robert E. Lee wrote of the Gettysburg campaign, stirring a controversy that continues even today. Lee's statement was an indirect indictment of Gen. James Ewell Brown ("Jeb") Stuart, who was the cavalry. This book reexamines the questions that have shadowed the legendary Confederate hero and offers a fresh, informed interpretation of his role at Gettysburg. Avoiding the partisan pros and cons characterizing previous accounts, Warren C. Robinson reassesses the historical record to come to a clearer view of Stuart's orders for the crucial battle (as well as what was expected of him), of his actual performance, and of the impact his late arrival had on the outcome of the campaign. Though Stuart may not have disobeyed Lee's orders, Robinson argues, he did abuse the general's discretion by raiding Washington rather than scouting for the army at GettysburgÑa move that profoundly affected Confederate fortunes and perhaps the war itself. Warren C. Robinson is a professor emeritus at Pennsylvania State University. He is the editor of numerous works in the field of economics and the author of many articles on military history and policy. He is currently a freelance writer and consultant based in Washington DC. "This brief book offers a fascinating re-consideration of the long-debated question of why Jeb Stuart and his Confederate cavalry were not present at the beginning of the Battle of Gettysburg and what the result of their absence might have been. . . . [Robinson's] examination of Stuart's controversial role in the campaign is well researched, carefully reasoned, and engagingly written."ÑJournal of Military History "Mr. Robinson has examined a considerable amount of data and presents well-argued and at times provocative conclusions about one of the Civil War's most controversial events."ÑThomas J. Ryan, Washington Times "[Robinson's] relative objectivity allows him to detail the events involving Stuart in a meaningful and intelligent way. As a good historian should, he looks at the record of events and, more importantly, the context of the events."ÑJohn Deppen, Civil War News "This is an enthralling work of history."ÑMaj. Jeffrey C. Alfier, USAF, Ret., Military Review "Well-written, insightful, and penetrates the shroud of romanticism, myth, and recriminations surrounding General Robert E. Lee, Major General J.E.B. Stuart, and the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg. . . . Rather than writing a narrative tome, Robinson presents a cogent and surprisingly quick read that focuses on the polemic assertions surrounding the battle. . . . The book will quickly become a seminal work on the battle of Gettysburg. Robinson's analysis and separation of fact and myth in the events contributing to the absence of Confederate cavalry during the first two days of the battle makes this a must-read book for military historians and enthusiasts alike."ÑSouthern Historian "Well organized and clearly written."ÑJournal of Southern History, University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2013, Serpent's Tail, November 2011.

Rockabilly had its roots in country, blues, folk, hillbilly, R&B, boogie-woogie and most other indigenous Deep South forms of popular song that you could strum three chords along to or howl down a cheap microphone. It was young people's music, made almost entirely by the first wave of teenagers, despised by adults in general and the country music establishment in particular. Its pioneer exponent, Elvis, eventually become respectable in the eyes of straight society but he was the exception. <BR>1950s rockabilly was a spontaneous outburst of spirited three-chord songs, tiny record labels, primitive studios, fiercely partisan audiences and wild-eyed, driven performers who weren't even sure that their musical careers would last the week. The book charts the rise (and fall) of the original 50s wave of rockabillies. It will also follow the progress of the music, in clubs, on radio, TV and film, pinpointing the key record labels and important regional centres, showing how fashions eventually changed and left rockabilly high and dry, far too wild and primitive in an era of smoother sounds. Decharne traces the music to its Memphis roots. First history of rockabilly - the genre that gave rise to Elvis, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, and more., Serpent's Tail
