Osprey Publishing Description:

Alex de Quesada reveals the full history of the US Coast Guard throughout World War II in this Elite title. In particular, the book draws attention to the little-known story of how the US Coast Guard ran a number of the landing craft throughout D-Day in 1944 as well as providing crucial anti-U-boat patrols throughout the war years. A number of Coast Guard servicemen were lost in these two campaigns, and their undeniable contribution to the US war effort deserves greater recognition. The Coast Guard also provided aviators and gunners to the Merchant Marine and manned Port Security Services. These roles are all fully explained and illustrated with rare photographs and specially commissioned artwork.

Osprey Publishing Description:

The outbreak of World War II in Europe in 1939 led to cautious attempts to raise volunteer organisations among American men and women, to back the armed forces in the event of the USA becoming directly involved in the conflict. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused a huge surge of patriotic response, and voluntary enlistment in a wide range of armed forces auxiliary and civilian support services swelled vastly. Looking firstly at the background and general character of wartime life in the States, this book covers a number of these services, providing an interesting comparison with the conditions on the British Home Front and the experiences of other countries caught up in the war, examining organisations from the Red Cross to the Coast Guard and for the first time, containing full-colour reconstructions of over a dozen uniformed services.

Osprey Publishing Description:

The landings by the Cuban exile Assault Brigade 2506 at the Bay of Pigs on April 17, 1961 led to three days of savage but unequal combat. Before they even sailed for Cuba, a White House decision had condemned them to constant attacks by Castro’s air force, which sank two of their ships loaded with vital supplies and equipment. Despite stubborn resistance to Castro’s troops and tanks, and heroic sorties by Cuban and American B-26 pilots, the Brigade was strangled for lack of firepower and ammunition. Their story is illustrated with rare photos from Brigade veterans, and detailed color plates of the uniforms and insignia of both sides.

Glenn Gould. Una vida a contratiempo, de Sandrine Revel
Astiberri, 2016 | Spanish | CBR | 136 págs. | 67.5 MB

Información dada por la editorial: Glenn Gould (1932-1982), genio de la música clásica, fascinó al mundo por su talento inaudito, la modernidad de sus interpretaciones y su extraña manera de tocar el piano, encorvado y tarareando con los ojos cerrados. Sandrine Revel recrea en viñetas la vida del pianista canadiense, tratando de comprender a la persona detrás del personaje, de acercarse a la vida interior de un genio solitario, frágil y atormentado, que afirmó en algún momento: “creía firmemente que todo el mundo compartía mi pasión por el cielo nublado. Me sorprendió mucho darme cuenta de que algunas personas preferían el sol”.
