A dying American WWII vet tells his story to his son during his final months - his story of becoming a pilot, of flying overseas and entering combat, of being shot down, of going from cockpit to caveman, and of being on the run for 78 days behind German lines north of Florence in Tuscany in 1944, of finally being liberated by American troops - and of joyously arriving home and being reunited with his wife on their Fifth Wedding Anniversary. Young and in love and heading off to war with pilot’s wings and heroes dreams, then shot down and on the run for 78 days in the mountains north of

Few US presidents have captured the imagination of the American people as has Harry S. Truman, "the man from Missouri". In this biography, Ferrell challenges the popular characterisation of Truman as a modest man who rarely sought the offices he received, revealing instead a quick-witted politician whose skill and honest commitment to service paved the road to the nation’s highest office. Truman was ambitious in the best sense of the word. His powerful commitment to service was accompanied by a remarkable shrewdness and an exceptional ability to judge people. He regarded himself as a con

Letters Home by Harry Truman is a fascinating collection of colorful letters and "diary notes" by Truman, all compiled and edited by Monte Poen. The letters, gathered from many sources, include missives sent by Truman to his daughter, his mother and sister, his cousins, and of course his wife, Bess. This potpourri of information provides an intimate and revealing portrait of a man who went from being a farmer in dire straits-trying to make enough money to marry the woman he loved-to becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the free world.

The world was captivated in the summer of 1995, when Harry Wu, a Chinese-born American citizen, was detained at the Chinese border and then later formally arrested on spying charges. To the autocrats of the Chinese Communist Party Beijing, Harry Wu, is nothing but a convicted criminal and spy, an unrepentant counterrevolutionary who spent nineteen years in labor camps and has taken revenge by secretly entering China under false names to steal state secrets. To the rest of the world, Harry Wu is an extraordinarily courageous man, one of the most prominent expatriate Chinese dissidents, whose

What if? Harry Turtledove, renowned alt-historian and the editor of this anthology, calls that question "those two mournful little words." But little though they might be, they inspired some of the previous century’s most brilliant speculative fiction, including the 14 short stories collected here. And with contributors like Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Gregory Benford, Larry Niven, Kim Stanley Robinson, Bruce Sterling, and Turtledove himself, there’s truly not a clunker in the bunch. All of these stories revolve around Turtledove’s central beard-tugging question, but they vary
