Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigate
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Oliver Hazard Perry class is a class of frigates named after the American Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the hero of the naval Battle of Lake Erie. Also known as the Perry or FFG-7 class, the warships were designed in the United States in the mid-1970s as general-purpose escort vessels inexpensive enough to be bought in large quantities to replace World War II-era destroyers. Fifty-five ships were built in the United States: 51 for the United States Navy and four for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). In addition, eight were built in the Republic of China (Taiwan), six in Spain, and two in Australia for their navies. Former U.S. Navy warships of this class have been sold/donated to the navies of Bahrain, Egypt, Poland, and Turkey.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Dive Bomber is a 1941 American propaganda film directed by Michael Curtiz. It is notable for both its Technicolor photography of pre-World War II United States Navy aircraft and as a historical document of the US in 1941, including the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, one of the best known World War II US warships. The film was the last of a collaboration between director Curtiz and actor Errol Flynn which began in 1935 and spanned 12 films. The cast also includes Fred MacMurray, on loan from Paramount Studios and Alexis Smith in her first credited screen performance. Flynn portrays a Harvard-educated doctor who is involved in heroic medical research on pilots, with MacMurray as the skeptical veteran aviator who gets swept up in the project

Tsukuba class cruiser
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The two Tsukuba class cruisers (??? ????, Tsukuba-gata juny?senkan?) were battlecruisers operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy. They participated in numerous actions during the World War I. Construction of the Tsukuba class heavy cruisers was ordered under the 1904 Emergency Fleet Replenishment Budget of the Russo-Japanese War, spurred on by the unexpected loss of the Yashima to a naval mine in the early stages of the war. As the new class was the largest design yet attempted independently by Japanese naval shipyards, contemporary American military observers were surprised (and concerned) at the rapid pace of construction, and that Japan had learned to build such large and powerful warships so quickly, and in such a short time. However, with rapid advances in naval technology and with increasing budget constraints on the Imperial Japanese Navy in the period immediately after the end of the Russo-Japanese War, the project was scaled back, and in the end, only Tsukuba and Ikoma were built out of what was intended to be a class of six vessels.

Brazilian Battleship Minas Geraes
69,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Minas Geraes, spelled Minas Gerais in modern sources, was an encouraçado (English: battleship) built for the Brazilian Navy. Named in honor of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, the ship was laid down in April 1907 as the lead ship of her class, making the country the third country to have a dreadnought under construction. She was completed in 1908. Although frequently in poor condition, the major warships constructed under Brazil's 1904 building program Minas Geraes, her sister São Paulo, the cruisers Bahia and Rio Grande do Sul, and most of the ten Pará-class destroyers formed the core of the Brazilian Navy from their completion in 1908 1910 until the beginning of the Second World War. Not long after her commissioning, Minas Geraes was featured in the 19 March 1910 edition of Scientific American, which described her as "the last word in heavy battleship design and the [...] most powerfully armed warship afloat". Seven months later, she was the focal point of the Revolta de Chibata (English: Revolt of the Whip). The mutiny spread from Minas Geraes to other ships in the Navy, including the recently commissioned São Paulo

Bloody Okinawa: The Last Great Battle of World ...
25,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The last great battle of World War II began on Easter Sunday, April 1, 1945, when more than 184,000 began landing on the only Japanese home soil invaded during the Pacific war. The island of Okinawa was just 350 miles from mainland Japan and the Allies planned to use it as its forward base for its invasion. On the island, nearly 140,000 Japanese and auxiliary soldiers resisted the US-led assault with suicidal tenacity from a Gibraltar of hollowed-out, fortified hills and ridges. Under constant fire and in the rain and mud, U.S. troops fought ferociously, battered the Japanese with artillery, aerial bombing, naval gunfire, and every infantry tool. The battle also marked the apotheosis of kamikaze air attacks, which sank 36 warships, damaged 368 others and killed almost 5,000 seamen. When the brutal slugfest ended, more than 125,00 enemy had been killed - and 7,500 American ground troops had died. And tragically, at least hundred thousand Okinawa civilians died violently while trapped between the battling armies. The Japanese had succeeded in preventing invasion but the bloody campaign had convinced US leaders that only an atomic bomb could end the war. Utilising vivid accounts written by US combatants, along with previously unused Japanese sources, Joseph Wheelan brings a strong human dimension to this rich story of the war's last great battle waged against an determined enemy and extreme conditions.
