The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men Who Risked All for the Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II
The astonishing, never before told story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II—when the OSS set out to recover more than 500 airmen trapped behind enemy lines in Yugoslavia…
During a bombing campaign over Romanian oil fields, hundreds of American airmen were shot down in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Local Serbian farmers and peasants risked their own lives to give refuge to the soldiers while they waited for rescue, and in 1944, Operation Halyard was born. The risks were incredible. The starving Americans in Yugoslavia had to construct a landing strip large enough for C-47 cargo planes—without tools, without alerting the Germans, and without endangering the villagers. And the cargo planes had to make it through enemy airspace and back—without getting shot down themselves.

“A fascinating collection” of wartime cartoons from the beloved children’s author and illustrator (The New York Times Book Review).
Before Yertle, before the Cat in the Hat, before Little Cindy-Lou Who (but after Mulberry Street), Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) made his living as a political cartoonist for New York newspaper PM. Seuss drew over 400 cartoons in just under two years for the paper, reflecting the daily’s New Deal liberal slant. Starting in early 1941, when PMadvocated American involvement in World War II, Seuss savaged the fascists with cunning caricatures. He also turned his pen against America’s internal enemies–isolationists, hoarders, complainers, anti-Semites, and anti-black racists–and urged Americans to work together to win the war. The cartoons are often funny, peopled with bowler-hatted “everymen” and what author Art Spiegelman calls “Seussian fauna” in his preface. They are also often very disturbing–Seuss draws brutally racist images of the Japanese and even attacks Japanese Americans on numerous occasions.
