Fourteen Of Them With a Foreward by Mary Roberts Rinehart, Hersey, John, Helen MacInnes, John Cecil Holm, Et Al
63 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."

The V-1 was the first of the so-called "Vengeance weapons" (V-weapons or Vergeltungswaffen) series designed for terror bombing of London. It was developed at Peenemünde Army Research Center in 1939 by the Nazi German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. During initial development it was known by the codename "Cherry Stone". Because of its limited range, the thousands of V-1 missiles launched into England were fired from launch facilities along the French (Pas-de-Calais) and Dutch coasts. The first V-1 was launched at London on 13 June 1944."
