The Great Snafu Fleet

1st Combat Cargo Squadron, a.k.a. The Great Snafu Fleet, and the other Combat Cargo units were formed by General Hap Arnold to answer Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten´s need for airlift in Burma, one of World War II´s most primitive theaters. From August 1944, they flew C-47's from India, air-dropping supplies in Burma to Field Marshal William Slim´s 14 (British) Army. Going to China in December 1944, they spent the rest of the war there, delivering vital supplies and personnel for Gen Chennault's 14th Air Force Flying Tigers and the OSS, often behind enemy lines, and rescuing POW´s before coming home. Reorganized in late 1945 as the 326th Troop Carrier Squadron, they continue the heritage of citizen-airmen today with the C-5 in contingencies around the world. They are an almost unknown unit in a forgotten theater whose story is just being told.

The Youngest Patriot

The year is 1776. A memorable year in American history. A year every American points to with pride, but what was it like to live during that year? Indeed during all the years of the British occupation of Long Island and New York. More to the point of this story, what was it like for a young thirteen year old farm boy to grow up on Long Island during that seven year occupation? The Youngest Patriot is the story of just such a young boy. It is the story of Elijah Churchill who meets Lieutenant Benjamin Tallmadge of the Continental Army who is on his way to Brooklyn Heights to join with his 2nd Connecticut Light Dragoons.

Wittenberg: An American College

"Half of all the colleges founded before the Civil War did not survive. Wittenberg did. This is the story of a college on the Ohio frontier that sought to Americanize millions of German immigrants and to Americanize the German Lutheran Church. In spite of that, Wittenberg was caught in the anti-foreign prejudice of “Nativists” who feared the influence of immigrants on American institutions. The school prospered after the Civil War as America embraced German culture from classical music to the Christmas tree. The school again faced prejudice in the anti-German furor of World War I. Simultaneously, this is the story of students and faculty coping with the pressures of a nation going from the poverty of the rural frontier to the wealth of an urban-industrial society and how they and Wittenberg changed."
