    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UVAs), aka remotely piloted aircraft, are often in the news about the war on terrorism being waged in Afghanistan and Iraq. An author specializing in military and aviation history topics presents a well-illustrated chronicle of the development and combat use of what has become this century's signature weapons system. Yenne traces the advances in UVA technology from World War II's radio-directed drones to today's satellite-guided systems, as well as changes in attitudes regarding their role in combat. Appendices list specifications for selected UAVs and a checklist of American military UAVs. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
  • Black '41: The West Point Class of 1941 and the American Triumph in World War II

    Black ’41 opens with the arrival of the class of 1941 at the gates of West Point in the spring of 1937. It follows that class—nicknamed “Black ’41” for their misdeeds while at the Academy—over the course of the next four years, as they absorb the lessons that will help them become military leaders. Their cadet days provide the backdrop for the ominous events in a world headed toward war. It would be a war, as Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson underscored in his commencement address to the class in June 1941, that “may fall, in large measure, upon your shoulders.” The U.S. Army into which those new graduating second lieutenants were commissioned in 1941 was in many ways a holdover from the army of an earlier era, with plenty of cavalry but without a single armored division. Black ’41 became a key part of the new army, quickly transitioning to a mechanized force and growing its air arm. By the time of the major Pacific and European action, Black ’41’s officers were captains and majors, and leading soldiers into some of the critical fighting in the war. Told largely through the words of the graduates, Black ’41 is the coming-of-age story of West Point’s finest, during the hour of our country’s greatest need.

Employing a considerable archive of cruise missile data and material amassed during his profiling of McDonnell Douglas and General Dynamics in the 1980s and 1990s, author Bill Yenne has created a compelling work containing a wealth of excellent, and in many cases never-before-published, photographs plus detailed technical information that is simply unavailable in any other product on the market today.
