Memoir '44: Pacific Theater Expansion

Memoir '44: Pacific Theater Expansion

Memoir '44 is just about my favorite boardgame, and this Pacific Theater expansion adds lots of cool gameplay to the base set. Gung-Ho Marines, the Banzai Charge of the new Japanese units, new terrain types, warship rules, and more.

In February, 1942 three hand-picked bomber crews were trained in photo-reconnaissance. These men were to fly modified B-17 aircraft far beyond design safety factors and well over maximum wartime weight limits. The photos of Japanese targets were an absolute necessity for the famous Doolittle Bombing Raid weeks later. Fictional themes woven into the plot include: a young woman pilot hoping to become a WASP – Women Air Service Pilot, enlists the help of Eleanor Roosevelt; a young Nisei woman, born in California, tries to escape incarceration in the Manzanar Detention Camp; an actual double agent in the White House, eventually exposed by Allen Dulles. In March 1942 the three B-17s took off from Wright Field, Ohio. Two of the planes were eliminated en route and, after long, exhausting hours in the air, the third crew photographed Tokyo, then flew another 2700 miles to land at an uncompleted Navy field at Dutch Harbor. A month later, April 18, 1942, sixteen B-25 bombers were launched from the USS HORNET. The ‘DOOLITTLE RAID’ was on its way to bomb Japan. The eye-witness, an Army Air Corps Captain in 1941, retired from government service 40 years later. His last job was Director of the famous Lockheed ‘Skunk Works’ (builder of the U2 spy plane).

I really liked this book. "Soldier of the Press," covers the time period from 1936 and civil war in Spain to the Balkans campaign of World War II before America entered the war, then into 1943 with British and American actions in North Africa. The history buff in me was well-satisfied by the interesting details of events from the perspective of a non-combatant journalist caught up in the danger, intrigue and front-line fighting. The part of me that appreciates human interest and personal relationships was also satisfied that Henry "Hank" Gorrell included the stories of ordinary soldiers and civilians in his manuscript. He describes well the conditions of the soldiers who fought, the civilians who lived and died, and the journalists who overcame tremendous obstacles to get their stories published throughout the world. The circumstances surrounding the discovery of the original manuscript in a family attic after 60 years added another dimension to my satisfaction. You can't help but wonder how Gorrell survived almost ten years of intense danger, deprivation and separtaion from home and family. This book is a good read for historians, writers, journalists, educators and anyone who appreciates unsung heroes.

I have always thought of the Queen Mother as the model grandmother, smiling benevolently down upon her home country from underneath the brim of a fabulous hat. Yet, as I will have to wait until October 27, 2009 to fully understand, no mere figurehead is she. Indeed, long before I was born, she witnessed firsthand the horrors of WW II and sought to aid its survivors. This warm-hearted woman who bore the current Queen of England holds so much history with such great dignity.

This triumphant book picks up where Obama left off after proclaiming ". . . there is not a liberal America and a conservative America; there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and white American and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America . . . We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the Stars and Stripes, all of us defending the United States of America." Through her book, filled with references to the Baby Boomers and the Greatest Generation, Noonan calls us to rise to our becomes the own best version of our own generation. Now. Today.

From the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the bombing of Japan, Ken Burns investigates the American perspective and experience of World War II. Interviews with soldiers, Americans of Japanese descent and their loved ones give this documentary the additional benefit of first-person narrative. 15 hours of coverage in all, this documentary would be difficult to view in one sitting and some parts may best be understood only after watching them more than once. Yet, not one second is monotonous.

Obviously great performances from the team. But the home run for me is Tom Hanks. Is this ironic that i'm claiming the star to be the only starring male role?

Perhaps it was fitting that I saw this movie in the theater, alone for that was how so many of the American soldiers during World War II felt, fought and perished. That I fell in love with the small group tasked with rescuing Private Ryan was no easy feat given all of the background noise, both literal and political. But that is the genius of the movie. You are left feeling as though a part of your own soul is bound up with what happened in Germany not so very long ago.

The story of the Water Horse is a little like Puff the Magic Dragon on steroids: a real boy with a sad and serious affect becomes transformed by the friendship he forges with the creature that emerges from an egg he finds by the loch. Set during World War II, both the boy and the Water Horse encounter armed opposition and the specter of war. At times more of an adult's fairy tale, but a beautiful and heart-warming film nonetheless.

Being a divorced, single mother is a tough gig, but during World War II it was much like a curse. Sissy Spacek's character manages to hold the wolves and the gossipmongers at bay just enough to get by and get along, until both a lover and a murderer cross her path. Mournful at times, but ultimately triumphant.
