ITEM#: 10611976

Loss of life, destruction, unending pain and misery - the results of war never seem to make sense. War defies logic. Having searched through stacks of periodicals, military reports, interviews, and other publications, author William Breuer has come up with over one hundred such illogical events, and presents them in Unexplained Mysteries of World War II. From popular mysteries to barely believable happenings, Breuer sheds light on the absurdity of war from a different angle.

The book is broken down into multiple sections, and delves into mysteries like:
  • Who torched the Normandie in New York Harbor?
  • Did a New Yorker ad warn of Pearl Harbor?
  • Did Churchill have a “feeling” that saved his life?
  • Ernest Hemingway lives to tell about switching seats.
  • The night when an American and Japanese soldier accidentally shares a foxhole overnight.
  • A U-boat gives a battleship a piggyback ride in the Atlantic.
