Summary

This book brings us the story of George Crosby, the Lone Boy Scout. George Crosby was born and has lived all of his seventeen years, in Greer, a settlement of a half-dozen pioneer families located on the Little Colorado River, in the White Mountains, Arizona. At the beginning of the Great War Geroge considered what he could do for the good cause. During the summer of 1918, the Supervisor of the Apache National Forest found himself woefully short of men, with the dreaded fire season coming on. Most of his rangers, fire lookouts, and patrols had gone to the war, and he could not find enough men of the right sort to take their place so George Crosby became a member of a troop of the Phoenix Boy Scouts of America.

    How many people think about this idea that whatever they have achieved in their lives can be partly because of the random events that just happened to be in favor of them? Not a lot. The thing is, people are yet to accept that a big part of their lives is governed by one or a few random factors at a time. And the nature of those random factors could be different in any situation. That is why it is very important to understand the implications and methodologies of randomness. How exactly that randomness works? All the answers are here. There is a possibility of different things that can happen at different times. But why does one thing that happens over-powers everything else that could have happened? Even all the accumulated wealth and riches of the people could be due to the presence of good luck in their lives.

    Walk a War in My Shoes

    On the 25th August 1895, Ernest Alfred Hall was born into a pioneering Australian family that lived on a 313-acre property called 'Cloverdale' near the hamlet of Beech Forest, south of the Otway Ranges, some 200 kilometres south west of Melbourne, Victoria. As a child, it seemed he would be destined for the life of a farmer in a country that was just realising its independence through Federation, yet his path was to be diverted by the cataclysmic events that befell Europe and the British Empire. 
    So it was, that one month short of his 20th birthday, Ernest caught the train to Melbourne and enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force. At only 5' 3" he was never going to be the biggest soldier in the army, but as his father said to him, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, son, but the size of the fight in the dog."  
    Like so many, Ernest Hall embarked for the war to end all wars. Unlike so many, his letters and records survived. This is his story.

    A deep dive into the fate of German submarines lost during the Second World War. “This has to be the best reference you can find on the subject.”—Military Modelling   No other publication on this subject comes even close to including the amount of detail provided in this book. An introduction both summarizes previous works on the subject and describes the difficulties of obtaining and verifying information from either the Germans or the Allies on U-boat losses.   The main part of the book lists by hull number each U-boat’s date of commissioning, its commanding officer, and the date and port of departure for its last patrol. It also gives the date, position, and cause of loss of each submarine, with complete details on Allied units involved in the sinking, the names and ranks of their commanding officers and pilots, and the number of crew killed or rescued. An appendix neatly summarizes data on the disposition of surviving U-boats at the end of the war and provides valuable statistical data on German U-boat losses.   “Highly recommended for every serious scholar of the Atlantic war, and every library in naval history and the history of the Second World War.”—The Mariner’s Mirror   “The level of detail is quite impressive and this edition is the result of 16 years of further research since the first edition . . . If you are seeking data on the fate of U-Boats then this book should be your ‘first place of call’—no other book has such detailed data.”—Military Archive Research
