Almost everyone knows the public Ted Williams: the great hitter, the war hero, the avid outdoorsman and the man who seemed to be a lightning rod for controversy his whole life. Fewer know the very private Ted, and fewer still knew him as well as his friend and confidante of over 30 years, John Underwood. From vacations off the Florida Keys, to African Safaris to the beaches of Costa Rica, Underwood and Williams vacationed together and got to know each as close personal friends. Underwood draws on both his private recordings with Williamsthe audio CD contains candor from Williams about a wide variety of subjects that no baseball fan has heard beforeand his personal experiences to craft a book about what he learned from his friendship. Reminiscent of bestseller Tuesdays With Morrie, It's Only Me allows the private side of Williams to educate and entertain baseball fans more than they ever imagined before."

After suffering devastating losses in the early stages of the Second World War, the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force established an Operational Research Section within bomber command in order to drastically improve the efficiency of bombing missions targeting Germany. In The Science of Bombing,Randall Wakelam explores the work of civilian scientists who found critical solutions to the navigational and target-finding problems and crippling losses that initially afflicted the RAF. Drawing on previously unexamined files that re-assess the efficacy of strategic bombing from tactical and technical perspectives, Wakelam reveals the important role scientific research and advice played in operational planning and how there existed a remarkable intellectual flexibility at Bomber Command. A fascinating glimpse into military strategy and decision-making, The Science of Bombing will find a wide audience among those interested in air power history as well as military strategists, air force personnel, and aviation historians.
