"Wrath in Burma is a lively human document of the personal anecdotes and daily happenings in Vinegar Joe Stilwell's life in Burma. It is the story of a general who was never a brass hat - who marched with his men and led them over insurmountable obstacles." "Just prior to World War II, Stilwell was recognized as the top corps commander in the Army and was initially selected to plan and command the Allied invasion of North Africa. When it became necessary to send a senior officer to China to keep that country in the War, Stilwell was selected, over his personal objections, by President Franklin Roosevelt and his old friend, Army Chief of Staff George C. Marshall. He became the Chief of Staff to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, served as the commander of the China Burma India Theater responsible for all Lend-Lease supplies going to China, and later was Deputy Commander of the South East Asia Command. Unfortunately, despite his status and position in China, he soon became embroiled in conflicts over U. S. Lend-Lease aid and Chinese political sectarianism."

"Nose art is a decorative painting or design on the fuselage of an aircraft, usually on the front fuselage. While begun for practical reasons of identifying friendly units, the practice evolved to express the individuality often constrained by the uniformity of the military, to evoke memories of home and peacetime life, and as a kind of psychological protection against the stresses of war and the probability of death. The appeal, in part, came from nose art not being officially approved, even when the regulations against it were not enforced."

Fourteen Of Them With a Foreward by Mary Roberts Rinehart, Hersey, John, Helen MacInnes, John Cecil Holm, Et Al
60 Hersey, John, Helen MacInnes, John Cecil Holm, Et Al Fourteen Of Them With a Foreward by Mary Roberts Rinehart
New York Farrar & Rinehart, Inc. 1944 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Very Good- 
B&W Photographs; This book is in Very Good- condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean condition. The spine of the book has chipping, rubbing and wear to the paper covers. The corners and spine ends have edge wear, bumping and bits of paper missing. The text pages are clean and bright. "This book is much more than the stories of the fourteen men and boys of the Tarrytowns who have already died in the service of their country. Underlying it is the story of one American town, and of how it has recognized their sacrifices and that of their families, not with pity, but with sympathy, deep understanding and pride." "Well-done, if heavily underscored for special local appeal, this Roll of of the town of Tarrytown, New York, which might be typical of any American town. During the National War Fund Drive, these stories of the boys who had died in service were written by noted authors for the Tarrytown Daily News. Four of the boys never new action, but died while in training; the others were lost in active duty, -- one was killed at Pearl Harbor, one sunk by a Nazi sub, another was lost in a bomber over Kiel, yet another in a Navy patrol plane; the Solomons, Sicily, the Atlantic, the Pacific -- all claimed victims. Both sides of the tracks are represented, and something is told of the heritages of the men, of the families left behind, of their own brief lives. Authors include Hersey, Helen MacInnes, Kay Boyle, Fannie Hurst, Robert St John, Margaret Widdemer, William Benet, and others."
