    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With Zenith Press Author Piers Bizony

    in Military

    For people who grew up in the middle of the 20th Century, space travel/exploration has been something of a disappointment since the lunar landings of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The promises of commercial space travel, promoted in such feature films as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODDESSY have never been realized, and man's toehold in space has been limited to near-earth ventures like the International Space Station (ISS) and the American Space Shuttle program that was shut down several years ago. In a word, disappointing.


    However, the 21st Century has finally begun to deliver on the promises made by people like President John F. Kennedy and Werner von Braun, thanks to a number of pioneering commercial space ventures that are rapidly beginning to deliver results. Companies like Orbital Sciences and SpaceX, are already providing resupply and retrieval services to NASA for the ISS. And sometime in 2017, SpaceX will fly their first manned mission aboard their own U.S.-built Falcon 9 rocket. These rapid and well conceived programs have not gone without incident however, as demonstrated by the recent accidents involving Orbital Sciences and Virgin Galactic's boosters and spacecraft. Nevertheless, these bold ventures, led by men like Richard Branson and Elon Musk are pushing ahead, and look to be back sometime in 2015.


    To learn more about the coming revolution in commercial space projects, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) i for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Piers Biznoy, and they be discussing his new book. NEW SPACE FRONTIERS. Together they will discuss the current crop of commercial space ventures, recent setbacks and successes, and the long-term viability of space as a commercial enterprise arena.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With Zenith Press Author Gavin Mortimer

    in Military

    The United States, while a late entrant into World War I, began to contribute to the Allied war effort in 1916 and 1917 with volunteers who wanted to fight the German forces as combat aviators. These first "American Eagles," initially joined up with the French Armié de Aire's famous Lafayette Escadrille, but soon began to join the fledgling Royal Flying Corps/ Royal Air Force (RAF). By the time of America's entry into the "Great War," a sizable force of Americans were already flying, fighting, and dying over the trenches of France and the low countries. There they helped hold the line until 1918, when American flying units began to reach the front. Throughout 1918, these Americans helped hold the line against the great German "Michael" Offensive, and later that summer helped the Allies take the offensive along the entire Western front, leading to the victory of November 1918.


    To learn more about these very first American combat aviators, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be renowned Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and historian Gavin Mortimer (@gavinmortimer7). The writer of a number of military history books, Mr. Mortimer is the author of THE FIRST EAGLES, a gripping chronicle of those early volunteer American aviators who served on the Western front in 1917 and 1918. Listeners are encouraged to call in with questions and opinions for Mr. Mortimer, which should make for a lively hour of classic aviation history as America begins its run up to remembering the Great War.

    USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Memorial Program


    GUEST HOST: PAUL SHERBO, Author


    Unsinkable Sailors:  The fall and rise of the last crew of  USS Frank E. Evans


    Paul Sherbo will be joining us as our Guest Host to commemorate the forty-fifth anniversary of the June 3, 1969 sinking of the USS Frank E. Evans a United States Navy destroyer, struck by the Australian aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne. 


    Operating as part of a combined force with the Royal Australian Navy and other allied naval ships, the Evans executed a starboard turn into the path of Melbourne at 0315 a.m. on June 3, 1969 and was cut in half by the heavier and larger war ship.  Evans’ broken off bow section sank almost immediately taking 73 unfortunate crewmembers with it.  Only one body was recovered in the aftermath of the collision, bringing the total lost to 74.  Out of the 273 crewmembers on board, 199 survived.


    The stern section, although severely damaged, remained afloat. The courage and heroic spirit of both ships' crews add a genuine admiration for their bravery despite their confusion in the sudden turn of events.


    We’ll be talking with former crew members who will provide updates on the groups activities and the drive by the USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Association members to have the ‘Lost 74” names added to the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

    Military Author Radio, with co-hosts Dr. Tom Gauthier, and Dari Bradley welcome our guest, Tim Deal.  He and his brother Mike spent two years bringing a 70-year-old incredible World War II escape story back from obscurity.  South From Corregidor describes the daring escape to freedom of 18 US Navy sailors from the minesweeper USS Quail. Using a 36-foot Navy motor launch, the 18 sailors, led by Lieutenant Commander John H. slipped out of the mouth of the bay on a month-long, 2000-mile odyssey to Darwin, Australia.


    This republished version of South From Corregidor is as Lieutenant Commander Morrill wrote it. The Deal brothers added 39 maps to show the escapees' journey and included six illustrations that were part of a 1942 Saturday Evening Post article.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham with Zenith Press Author Michael Haskew

    in Military

    Synergy is when the confluence of people, events, and places combine to create extraordinary things and results. And in the history of the U.S. Army, there is no greater example of synergy than the West Point Class of 1915. Known as, "The Class the Stars Fell On," the class of 1915 produced 59 general officers and a President of the United States out of just 164 graduates. Graduating just as America was becoming involved in World War I, the class of 1915 showed its talents and metal early, and also suffered the first of a number of combat casualties. And while most of the class languished through much of the interwar period as field grade staff officers, the coming of World War II made them into the leaders that won the greatest conflict in history. These included general's like Dwight D. Eisenhower, Omar Bradley, James Van Fleet, and Joseph McNarney. And when World War II ended, the class of 1915 became the Army leaders that led America into the Cold War, and Korea. Never before in the history of West Point had such a group of young officers been assembled, and it has not occurred since.


    To learn more about the West Point Class of 1915, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 p.m. Eastern.  His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Michael Haskew, the writer of The Class of 1915. Haskew has researched the entire West Point 1915 graduating class, including those who did not become general officers. This edition of Military Monday will be a fascinating hour looking at one of the greatest collections of  Army leadership, at both the beginning of their careers and at their apex in the crucible of World War II. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer their questions/opinions to both gentlemen.
