"The Second Pearl Harbor" is the first book to tell the full story of what happened on that fateful day. Military historian Gene Salecker recounts the events and conditions leading up to the explosion, then re-creates the drama directly after: men swimming through flaming oil, small craft desperately trying to rescue the injured, and subsequent explosions throwing flaming debris everywhere.

Hawaii, 7. Dezember 1941, kurz vor 8 Uhr morgens: Japanische Torpedobomber der ersten Angriffswelle stürzen sich auf die amerikanische Pazifikflotte in Pearl Harbor. Zum zweiten Mal in 30 Jahren wird ein Krieg zum Weltkrieg. Der Angriff auf Pearl Harbor kostete über 2400 amerikanische Soldaten das Leben, zahlreiche Schiffe und Flugzeuge wurden beschädigt. Einen Tag später erklärte der amerikanische Kongress Japan den Krieg. Am 11. Dezember antwortete Deutschland mit der Kriegserklärung an die USA. Anschaulich und lebendig schildert Takuma Melber Vorgeschichte, Verlauf und Folgen des japanischen Überfalls, um den sich zahlreiche Verschwörungstheorien ranken, und lässt die dramatischen Ereignisse in Nahaufnahmen der historischen Akteure wieder lebendig werden. Anders als die meisten westlichen Autoren bezieht er dabei auch die Perspektive der japanischen Angreifer mit ein.

As close as you can get to the world's warship wrecks without getting your feet wet Sunk by enemy fire, scuttled, or run aground, the number of World War II-era battleships, cruisers, submarines, and other warships that ended their service on the bottom of the world's oceans and seas is enormous. In the decades since the conflict, wreck hunters have pored over historical records and combed the world's oceans to find their remains. In Hidden Warships, naval historian Nicholas A. Veronico details the history, recovery, and preservation of these sunken combat ships--including accounts from the divers and restorers who have worked with them. Beginning with the Japanese midget submarines that attacked Pearl Harbor and continuing through into the modern era, including the 2006 sinking of the postwar aircraft carrier USS Oriskany, Veronico provides rich detail on each noteworthy vessel, including over 150 photographs, ship specifications, geographic coordinates, and more. For the enthusiast who wants an even more complete experience, the book concludes with a list of preserved ships, an Internet resource guide, and a suggested reading list to continue the exploration. Whether you plan on visiting these historic sites yourself or simply enjoy their compelling stories, Hidden Warships will guide you, above the surface and underwater, through some of the most famous relics of World War II naval warfare.

Das Kultbuch des renommierten Nationalökonomen und intellektuellen Gegenspielers von John Maynard Keynes. "Selten schafft es einmal ein Ökonom, mit einem Buch das breite Publikum aufzurütteln. Eine große Ausnahme bildet ›Der Weg zur Knechtschaft‹, jenes legendäre Buch des späteren Nobelpreisträgers Friedrich A. v. Hayek [...]. Ein Jahr vor Kriegsende popularisierte Hayek damit im Londoner Exil seine in den zwanziger und dreißiger Jahren gewonnenen Überzeugungen, vor allem die These, dass jeder Planwirtschaft eine Tendenz zum Totalitarismus innewohnt und dass es keinen Mittelweg zwischen Sozialismus und Marktwirtschaft geben kann. ›Der Weg zur Knechtschaft‹ hat zentrale Bedeutung für jene Ideen, die man heute, leicht missverständlich, als ›Neoliberalismus‹ bezeichnet; die Überzeugung, dass ökonomische Probleme am besten über freie Märkte gelöst werden sollen und der Anteil des Staates zurückgeführt werden sollte. Einprägsam besonders Hayeks Begründung, warum Planwirtschaft und Demokratie nicht zusammenpassen."
