But few know the full story of Wake Island. Now a prominent military historian, breaking new ground on the assault, relates the compelling events of that day and the heroic struggle that followed... On December 11, the Japanese invasion (of this location) began. But thanks to the brave Marine Navy, and Army personnel stationed there and the civilian construction workers who selflessly put their lives on the line to defend the island, what was supposed to be an easy victory became a protracted and costly battle for Imperial Japan - a battle whose details were lost in the mists of history...until now."

"To watch the Berlin Wall divide East and West, and then, twenty-eight years later, to see it fall under the weight of tens of thousands seeking to taste freedom? For the past seven years, researchers, reporters, and producers for ABC News have searched the world's archives for the rarest and most stunning photographs and images, consulted eminent twentieth-century historians, and discovered and interviewed hundreds of eyewitnesses and participants in the significant moments of the most eventful one hundred years in human history. The result is this spectacular book, the independent companion volume to the landmark ABC News and The History Channel television series The Century. From "Seeds of Change: 1901-1914" to "Machine Dreams: 1990-1999, " each chapter is threaded through with fascinating first-person accounts of the great events of the twentieth century, and illustrated with over five hundred color and black-and-white photographs (many never published before) reproduced in exquisite depth and clarity. The Century presents history as it was lived, and as it will be remembered for the next hundred years. Here is a keepsake volume destined to be an essential part of every family's library: an epic journey through the last hundred years, whose heroes are our grandparents, our parents, ourselves. " This is a heavy book, but price INCLUDES FULL EXTRA COST of Media Delivery; however USPS Priority would incur additional charge due to weight.
