The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.
Secret Japanese Aircraft of WWII tells the story of Japanese Aviation before, during and after World War Two.
It recounts the efforts of Japanese aircraft designers in the 1930s to create a range of modern warplanes, culminating in the design and manufacture of such legendary aircraft as the Nakajima Ki-43 'Oscar', and the Mitsubishi A6M 'Zero'.
We examine the contribution of US Technical Air Intelligence Units to identifying these planes and assessing their strengths and weaknesses. Heading this operation was Frank McCoy, a US Intelligence Officer, who gave the Japanese aircraft the distinctive western names they are known by today.
