Literary Corner: The Great American World War II Novelists

The Great American World War II Novelists

 

I remember reading James Jones The Thin Red Line in High School and being blown away by the dense, layered prose. It took me somewhere around three weeks to get through it because I would re-read some chapters twice.

Since then I read Jones’ WW2 trilogy to include From Here to Eternity, The Thin Red Line and Whistle.

Highly Recommended.

 

Know Your History: A Critical Look at the Polish ‘Pogroms’ of 1914–1920

A Critical Look at the Polish ‘Pogroms’ of 1914–1920

 

I recently had the good fortune to read William Hagen’s Cambridge-published Anti-Jewish Violence in Poland, 1914–1920, one of the most interesting books I’ve read on Jewish-European relations since John Doyle Klier’s Oxford-published work on the Tsarist pogroms. It’s always refreshing to see scholars of European heritage tackle this subject matter, which has been dominated for too long by Jewish academics offering a one-sided, lachrymose, and propaganda-laden approach.

This Post-Apocalyptic Book Was Written By One Of The Oregon Militia Members

 

Looking back now we can see Levoy was not only a writer but also a prophet in the sense he was sounding the ALARM of unbridled Government Tyranny and writing about his own death at the hands of Government Gangster Assassins with badges.

Only Blood and Suffering: Regaining Lost Freedom by the late Levoy Finicum can be puchased HERE.

 

Know Your WW2 History: The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors

The Heroic Tin Can Sailors Held Off the Japanese Saving Thousands of Lives in WWII

 

When asked about great naval WW2 books I always tell people The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors by by James D. Hornfscher is in my top 5.

It’s an amazing story of heroism and never say die grit in war.

Never give up until the last round is fired and even then, if you have propulsion and steering, prepare for ramming speed!

As a general rule, anything Hornfischer writes is worth your money, whether it be Neptune’s Inferno or The Fleet at Flood Tide, which I just recently finished.
