As the world prepares for the Centennial observance of the start of World War I, virtually every media outlet around the globe is preparing both coverage and content to saturate the minds of a public which has virtually no memory of the conflict. Included in this historical deluge, will be a small mountain of new books professing to have new observations and interpretations of the first great global conflict of the 20th Century. And though much of this content will be focused on interested adults, some publishers are taking the time and effort to reach out to teen and young adult audiences and introduce them to World War I through the medium of graphic books. An evolved version of comic books, graphic books provide a picture component in addition to text. Graphic books have been growing in both popularity and sophistication over the past few decades, and several publishers are going to be issuing volumes with a World War I focus in the months and years ahead.
So it is no surprise that one of of these books is going to focus on one of the most compelling personalities of the First World War: Baron Manfred von Richthofen. Known as the "Red Baron," Richthofen was the highest scoring fighter "ace" of World War I with 80 confirmed "kills" against Allied aircraft.And despite being killed during the "Michael" Offensive in 1918, remains today one of the most respected and well-known personalities of the conflict. To learn more about Manfred von Richthofen and the new graphic book which tells his story, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and illustrator Wayne Vansant, the creator of the new graphic book THE RED BARON. So tune in for an hour on the history of World War I, and the story of the Red Baron.
From 1947 to 1968, a series of four rocket-powered research aircraft provided American aircraft designers with the information and test data to build everything from early jet fighters like the North American F-86 Sabre, to the incredible speed, altitude, and stealth of the Lockheed A-12/ SR-71 Blackbirds. These aircraft, the X-1, X-1A, X-2, and X-15, literally took American aircraft design through the sound barrier, to hypersonic regimes above Mach 5. In addition, these aircraft demonstrated new materials, aerodynamics, systems, and even rocket engines that could be throttled. And in the case of the X-15, actually took pilots above the atmosphere and into space. Of of these amazing aircraft, it was the X-15 which was arguably the most productive and successful of the X-planes, flying 199 times and setting records which would only be broken by the arrival of the Space Shuttles in the 1980s. Flown by some of the most talented pilots of their generation, some, including Neil Armstrong, would go on to fly for NASA on Gemini, Apollo, and Shuttle missions. Today, the two surviving X-15s are prized museum exhibits, which still draw the attention of patrons from around the globe.
To learn more about the X-15 rocket plane, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is pilot, engineer, and aircraft designer Robert Passman, who spent much of his career working with rocket powered aircraft and spacecraft for the NACA, NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and CIA. Along with John Anderson, he is the co-author of the new book X-15 from Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press). Together they will go through the history of the X-15, including its heritage, design, pilots, missions and legacy. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer their own questions and opinions on this landmark aircraft, in an hour that will highlight perhaps the greatest research aircraft of all time.
As the United States celebrates the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, it is often forgotten that the troops that fought in that bloody conflict, were led by a surprisingly small group of men given senior rank as generals. All told on both sides, only around 1,000 or given the rank of general during the Civil War, and not surprisingly most knew each other personally. As classmates at West Point or the Virginia Military Academy, fellow officers during the War with Mexico, or as in-laws through intrafamily marriages, the men who were general officers during the American Civil War were a small and intimate group. And yet, most of what even well-read Civil War history buffs know about these men was actually written in the 150 years since the cessation of hostilities. Very few of the published opinions and assessments of individual generals were contemporary to the war itself, and in fact were written primarily with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. So who exactly were these men, and what was observed about their actions on battlefields when they were being fought over?
To learn more about the generals that led the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be Chicago homicide detective and Civil War expert Robert Girardi. Girardi, who is the author of 9 books, has written the recent Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) release THE CIVIL WAR GENERALS. Based upon contemporary letters, diaries, reports and other accounts, this book gives readers one of the clearest accounts ever written on the men who commanded Civil War land forces. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen in what will be a lively hour of talk and opinion about America's deadliest conflict.

Since the dawn of recorded history, mankind has been scattering his many tools of war across the globe. Sometimes lost in the heat of battle, and other times just thrown away by warriors too tired to carry them further, these implements of war have often become treasured finds of archaeologists, historians, and collectors around the world. Among the most prized, since the dawn of combat aviation in the early 1900s, are the wrecked and crashed aircraft that have been lost in both war and peace. However, such recovery and restoration efforts are not for the faint of heart, or those without substancial financial resources.These efforts can take place anywhere from polar ice packs in Greenland, to swamps deep inside savannah country. And despite this, across the globe, aircraft recovery teams are continuing their dirty, difficult, and often dangerous efforts to find and preserve the lost warplanes of bygone eras.
To learn more about recovering the wrecks of downed aircraft, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is aviation historian Nicholas "Nick" Veronico, author of the books Hidden Warbirds I and II from Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press). A long-time collector of warbird memorabilia, Nick Veronico is an expert on the wide variety of recovery and restoration efforts for wrecked military aircraft across the world. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions to both gentlemen, in what will be a lively hour that is part Indiana Jones, and part museum restoration.
It is a rare mind, which can see through the eyes of a competitor or enemy at the moment of truth in competition/conflict. Such minds are treasured within military forces, though rarely cultivated due to the regimented lifestyles and mindsets of such personnel. So any book or other media which can provide military personnel the chance to look at situations through the eyes and minds of enemies often has value, long after the death of the author or the events depicted. Such a book is JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN. Written by Captain Tameichi Hara of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) shortly after the end of World War II, his book was one of a handful of such memoirs translated and published in the United States during the 1950s. Since that time, JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN has provided naval officers, historians and general readers with an amazing window into the minds of Japanese naval commanders during the Second World War, along with a primer on how to survive and prevail in combat situations of all kinds.
To better understand the value of books like JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN and the people who write them, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. He will be joined by father/son U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) authors and naval historians Tom and Trent Hone. Together they will tell the story that Capt. Hara and his original editorial team, all long since dead, cannot. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and comments, on a rare phenomenon in the military history world, which needs to be encouraged.

The aces of Germany's Luftwaffe were the highest scoring fighter pilots of World War II. Despite flying and fighting in support of one of the most evil and despotic governments to darken the face of planet Earth, the "Experten" of the Luftwaffe had over 100 pilots who each shot down over 100 enemy aircraft in combat. Two actually scored more than 300 kills, a record which will never be matched. By comparison, the top aces of the Western Allies and Soviet Union only had a handful of pilots with more than 30 kills. And despite the evil and toxic leadership of Adolph Hitler and Herman Goring, these were men who retained their personal honor and the respect of their enemy peers.These were men who truly did fight from the first day of World War II, to the last one in Europe on VE Day.
To learn moe about the fighter aces of the Luftwaffe, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) writer Colin Heaton, who has spent the last three decades personally interviewing many of the top surviving German aces of World War II. They will be joined by his co-anthor and wife, Anne Marie Lewis, with whom he has produced a pair of books, THE GERMAN ACES SPEAK and THE GERMAN ACES SPEAK II, which describe the lives and careers of these amazing men. Listeners are encouraged to call in to offer questions and opinions, on what will be a fine hour talking about some of the finest pilots that have ever lived.
Last year, legions of fans, friends and peers were saddened to learn of the death of writer Tom Clancy. Arguably one of the finest writers and storytellers of his generation, Clancy was justifiably credited with the creation of the "Techno-Thriller" genre of writing, and its creation of an entire segment of the publishing industry. So it is this week, with more than a little anticipation, that fans of his work are about to be rewarded with the first book of a treasured Tom Clancy spinoff series, Op Center. Published by St. Martin's Press (@StMartinsPress), Out Of The Ashes, is the first new book of the series in over a decade, and features many of the qualities that Clancy fans have come to hope for and desire. A new Op Center, with a new location, new characters, and a new focus on how to deal with the evolving challenges of terrorism and international threats in the 21st century. Already a bestseller over this past weekend, this is a book that is going to make an impression.
To learn more about this exciting new book, the Op Center series and the people behind it, join military historian, Tom Clancy co-author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Psa 2:1 WHY do the nations rage and the peoples imagine vain things? 2 It is because the KINGS of the EARTH and the RULERS conspired to take counsel together AGAINST the MOST HIGH and AGAINST HIS ANOINTED, saying, 3 Let US break their LAW asunder. Let us cast off their YOKE from upon us. (Col.2:1-8, Rev.13:9-11, 6:12-<7:2>-7:17, Isaiah 40:27-41:4>-21-42:4>-43:15) 2:4 He that sits in heaven shall laugh: YAH shall catch them in their blasphemy. 2:5 He shall rebuke them in HIS wrath to vex them in HIS sore displeasure, saying 2:6 Yet have I set MY king upon MY holy hill of Zion.
Jude 1:3 My beloved, when I wrote to you with all diligence concerning our common salvation, it was needful that I should exhort you also to contend earnestly for the Faith once delivered to the saints.
Jude 1:4 For certain men have falsely entered among you, and these were foreordained from the very beginning to this condamnation. They are UNgodly men, perverting the GRACE of YAH after their own lawlessnessES, and denying YAH as the ONLY Most High and our Lord Yeoshu the Shiloh the Kurdi.
Jud 1:5 I will, therefore, remind you, though you once knew this, that YAH, having redeemed and saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. (Genesis 49:10)
45,000 DENOMINATIONS governed after constraints of contentious pastors, rulers and priests, all claiming they are led after the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is not only bondage under Babylon. It isindiscriminate blasphemy against the Holy One of Salvation!
