During its two-year period of service in North Africa, 8th Army underwent major changes in organization, equipment, and training to adapt it to the terrain. Discover the difficulties of desert warfare and how these were overcome by the 8th Army to defeat Rommel and become masters of the desert.

Less than a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Army formed its first air force designated to operate overseas, the Eighth. Within four months, they had set up base in England. Three months later, they were bombing German targets in occupied Europe. The Eighth was the first bomber command on either side to commit to strategic daylight bombing. It was a major change in tactics - and the men of the Eighth paid the price in both lives and blood. But it was that very sacrifice that led the Allies to victory. This NBC News-special tells the human story of the air crews of the U.S. Army's Eighth Air Force who put everything at risk on bombing raids deep into Germany during World War II. Some of the fliers who lived through those days recount their experiences. Includes historic film footage, and features interviews with author Roger Freeman and several crew members of the 381st Bomb Group.

The Wonder Book of Soldiers for Boys and Girls - Golding (8th ed.)

Harry Golding (editor), "The Wonder Book of Soldiers for Boys and Girls"
Ward, Lock & Co., London | n.d. (8th edition, c. 1933) | ISBN: none | 270 pgs. | PDF | 141MB

This book, published over several decades in various editions to keep up with the times, is an illustrated survey of contemporary soldiers (the British army in particular), their jobs, life, equipment, and training. This particular edition has one foot in the recent Great War and the other in a future that will feature armoured vehicles, chemical warfare, and air power. Nevertheless, The Wonder Book of Soldiers maintains a somewhat incongruous attachment to toy soldiers, uniforms, and the pomp of parades and regimental tradition.

Previous Jedi Mind Tricks’ projects could be described as a touch obtuse. Comic book villainy, cemeteries and decapitations aren’t the stuff of lazy Sunday afternoons. But the official debut of Army of the Pharaohs, spearheaded by JMT’s Vinnie Paz, comes off as morbidity with a smile. The underground all-star collaboration includes 7L & Esoteric, Celph Titled, Apathy, Outerspace, Reef The Lost Cauze, Chief Kamachi, Des Devious, Faez One and King Syze. Instead of fantastical yarns about high-tech weaponry, there are meaningful stories about disappointment and broken homes. But The Torture Papers is far from a sentimental journey through the ghetto. The whimsical futurism still abounds, but it is matched with thought-provoking experiences that make this more than a niche record.
