Return to Victory: MacArthur's Epic Liberation of the Philippines Audiobook

Return to Victory: MacArthur's Epic Liberation of the Philippines

Author: James P. Duffy Narrator: Aaron Abano Release Date: March 2021

General Douglas MacArthur's bloody campaign to defeat die-hard Japanese forces and liberate the Philippines   "I shall return," General Douglas MacArthur promised the Filipino people following the Japanese invasion and occupation of the Philippines in spring 1942. The people there believed MacArthur's vow-and even Americans were stirred by his dramatic pledge. Now, two and half years later, MacArthur was ready to fulfill his promise--the liberation of the Philippines was about to begin.   It would not be an easy campaign. The more than 7,000 islands of the Philippine archipelago were the key to taking down the Japanese Empire-and the Imperial forces were prepared to sacrifice every man and every ship to prevent MacArthur from regaining control of them.   Covering both the strategic and tactical aspects of the campaign through the participation of its soldiers, sailors, and airmen, as well as its commanders, James P. Duffy leads readers through a vivid account of the nearly year-long, bloody campaign to defeat over a quarter million die-hard Japanese defenders in the Pacific theater. Return to Victory is a wide-ranging, dramatic and stirring account of MacArthur's epic liberation of the Philippines.

War at the End of the World: Douglas MacArthur and the Forgotten Fight for New Guinea 1942-1945 Audiobook

War at the End of the World: Douglas MacArthur and the Forgotten Fight for New Guinea 1942-1945

Author: James P. Duffy Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: January 2016

One American soldier called it "a green hell on earth." Monsoon-soaked wilderness, debilitating heat, impassable mountains, torrential rivers, and disease-infested swamps-New Guinea was a battleground far more deadly than the most fanatical of enemy troops. Japanese forces numbering some 600,000 men began landing in January 1942, determined to seize the island as a cornerstone of the Empire's strategy to knock Australia out of the war. Allied commander-in-chief General Douglas MacArthur committed 340,000 Americans, as well as tens of thousands of Australian, Dutch, and New Guinean troops, to retake New Guinea at all costs. In this gripping narrative, historian James P. Duffy chronicles the most ruthless combat of the Pacific War, a fight complicated by rampant tropical disease, violent rainstorms, and unforgiving terrain that punished both Axis and Allied forces alike. Drawing on primary sources, War at the End of the World fills in a crucial gap in the history of World War II while offering listeners a narrative of the first rank.

Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt: The Rivalry That Divided America Audiobook

Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt: The Rivalry That Divided America

Author: James P. Duffy Narrator: Tom Weiner Release Date: October 2010

Was aviation pioneer and popular American hero Charles A. Lindbergh a Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite? Or was he the target of a vicious personal vendetta by President Roosevelt? In Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt, author James Duffy tackles these questions head-on, by examining the conflicting personalities, aspirations, and actions of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles A. Lindbergh. Painting a politically incorrect portrait of both men, Duffy shows how the hostility between these two American giants divided the nation on both domestic and international affairs. From canceling U.S. air-mail contracts to intervening in World War II, Lindberg and Roosevelt's clash of ideas and opinions shaped the nation's policies here and abroad. Insightful and engaging, Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt reveals the untold story about two of history's most controversial men and how the White House waged a smear campaign against Lindbergh that blighted his reputation forever. "If you love reading twentieth century American history, you'll love this book."—Thomas E. Woods, Jr., author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History
