Naval combat underwent a significant metamorphosis during World War II. Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan launched some of the most powerful battleships ever to sail the world´s oceans, yet the conflict witnessed the emergence and triumph of the aircraft carrier as the 20th century´s true monarch of the seas. Submarine warfare expanded and developed, while aircraft technology and doctrine experienced several revolutionary changes due to the unforgiving demands of the new combat environment. Popular accounts of World War II frequently focus on the dominance of German panzers over the more lightly armored, lightly armed tanks of the Soviets, British, and Americans or the superb fighting skills of the Waffen SS and ordinary Wehrmacht soldiers. Germany´s land forces enjoyed an undoubted advantage over their enemies thanks to excellent vehicle technology while German soldiers slaughtered vast numbers of Soviet conscripts and proved formidable opponents even to their better-trained English and American counterparts. However, the Axis failed to secure either the seas or the skies, and their defeat in these theaters ultimately led to their doom. Many highly advanced aircraft designs languished on the drawing boards of Junkers and Messerschmitt engineers, left undeveloped due to high-command disinterest or simple lack of resources. The most advanced fighters developed by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were equaled or outmatched by such aircraft as the US F6F Hellcat (which achieved kill ratios of between 13 to 1 and 19 to 1 against Japanese ´´Zero´´ fighters) or P-51 Mustang. 1.

An audiobook in Tamil. A monster among men. Proof that one madman can bring the whole world to the brink of destruction. What a bundle of contradictions he was! Non-smoker, tea-totaller, artist, engineer, gifted orator, born leader, unremitting dictator. The leader of the Third Reich was an extraordinary individual, of extraordinary qualities and extraordinary cruelty. Holocaust, pogrom, genocide: synonymous with Hitler and his unspeakable Nazis. Hitler´s hatred for the Jews led to the Second World War. He conquered Europe in a massive operation that drove fear into his mightiest opponents: England and France. But these great nations knew how to overcome fear and fight the enemy - by shedding blood, sweat, and tears. And when America joined the Allies, the combination proved too strong for the Axis. Good, for once, triumphed over Evil. Why did Hitler hate the Jews? When does a nationalist turn into a dictator? Why is Hitler an enduring figure in history, studied and dissected again and again? Did Germany really become a super power under Hitler? What attracts contemporary groups like the neo Nazis to Hitler? Find the answers to all these questions and more from this audiobook, based on Pa. Raghavan´s skilful, incisive writing. 1. Tamil.

The Fog of War is a two-player grand strategic game covering the European theater of World War II from 1940-1945. One player plays the Axis forces, and the other the Allies.The game doesn´t have units that move around a map, instead the game focuses on the planning and intelligence aspects of the war. Each player has a deck of cards that represent the army, navy, and other assets of their nations. A map shows the 28 land and sea provinces over which the players are battling.You defend a province by placing cards face down on the map. If you wish to attack a province, you must plan an Operation´´ to do so by creating one on your Operation Wheel. The Wheel is a unique way of forcing players to commit to operations in advance, while giving opportunities for intelligence gathering and bluffing.An operation consists of a Province card that shows the target of the operation, plus one or more cards to conduct the attack. All of these cards are placed face down, so your opponent does not know the target of the operation, or the actual strength of the cards that are taking part.Each turn the dial on the Operation Wheel is rotated by one position. This controls when an operation can be launched and any attack or defense bonuses that apply.In addition to combat forces for attack or defense, you may also play Intel cards, allowing you to look at your opponent´s operations and defenses.´´
