“LIGHTNING DOWN is more about peace than about war. Joe Moser and other soldiers are doing their duty not to earn bragging rights or because they like violence but to end the war with tyranny having been defeated. It is no coincidence that the very last word is 'peace.'”

Tom Clavin joins us to discuss his book LIGHTNING DOWN, the riveting story of an American fighter pilot doomed to die in Buchenwald, one of the most notorious and deadly of N**i concentration camps, but determined to survive. http://ow.ly/ATce50KNZI9

An iconic police investigator on the hunt for a grisly murderer. Put that on a double bill. I’ll go make the popcorn." —Patton Oswalt, The New York Times Books http://ow.ly/Y8p150KFpLP

"These were children who had known only a world of violence. Yet amid the bloodied ruins of Berlin in 1945, apartment blocks and entire streets transformed into canyons of jagged rubble, older women and men moving around blankly as though in fugue states, girls and boys were playing under a warming summer sun."

Author Sinclair McKay explores Berlin's broad human history, from the end of the First World War to the the rise of Hi**er, the construction of the Wall, and beyond. http://ow.ly/hh5X50KqG6y

“The CIA had no involvement in the break-in,” declared the duly sworn witness, Richard Helms, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, his voice starting to rise. Helms spoke to seven U.S. senators seated at the desks not ten feet in front of him. “No involvement whatever,” Helms emphasized with a broadside of rattling consonants.

"For all Robinson’s activism and stoicism in the years to come, for all the stands he would take and the language he would use, Robinson’s most searing eloquence would remain rooted in the way he shook the foundation as a young man. From the first moment he stepped onto a baseball field as a Montreal Royal to the last time he left the diamond with the Dodgers logo stitched across his breast, Robinson gave to the world a profound and enduring expression, articulated in the way that he played the game."

I wrote a piece about the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, and how I wove the battle into THE ECHOES, for The History Reader.
To whom it may concern,

Your advertisement came through my page and/or email, and if you do not mind, let me instead make a request of you. Please forgive me if this bothers you.

I am disabled with Bone Cancer in multiple areas of my spine which has caused paralysis in both of my feet, ankles and legs, as well as my left hand. I can no longer drive or work which means that I have no income. Because of this I cannot help you financially.

I am virtually homeless except for a friend who allows me to sleep in a closet. I have another friend that brings me food from a food pantry, so I get by, barely.

I would however like to request that instead, you assist me financially. Anything useful and/or any amount of money that you can donate to me would be greatly appreciated.

If you can get me a vehicle that I can operate manually, I could get a job and transport myself.

Thank you for your kind and generous consideration,

Everett Guyton

"The Philadelphia: Our Most Evocative National Relic" by Jack Kelly

"I have traveled to Revolutionary-era battlefields and forts. I’ve examined countless eighteenth-century muskets, uniforms, swords, and shoe buckles. I’ve looked at the original Declaration of Independence in the National Archives. Yet a single artifact has always stood above the others in evoking the immediacy and reality of the Revolutionary War. It rests not under an ornate rotunda but in a dusty corner of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History on the Mall in Washington.

"The Philadelphia is the oldest American warship still in existence. Built in the summer of 1776, it is now on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
This image is in the public domain via Wikicommons.
The Philadelphia is a fifty-five-foot-long wooden boat powered by oars and a single sail that was built in the summer of 1776. Although weathered and battered, the boat has a presence. She is the oldest American warship still in existence. Her record of service goes back to the days, a few months after the nation’s birth, when the success of the Revolution teetered on a knife edge. The forty-five men who manned this cramped open boat played a critical role in making sure that the cause of liberty survived.

"The boat was part of a crucial campaign to head off a British invasion along Lake Champlain in northern New York. Eight gunboats, three larger row galleys, a schooner, and several other vessels were assigned to stop the British from transporting a large army southward along the narrow lake. The American fleet was commanded by Benedict Arnold—he would not turn traitor for another four years..."
