A reprint of a hardcover edition.

The most bizarre series of murders since Jack the Ripper triggered the greatest man-hunt in the annals of modern crime for Albert deSalvo, brutal sexual psychopath, who murdered thirteen women and held a city in the icy grip of terror for eighteen months.
Based on over 200 interviews and full access to her personal papers, letters, contracts, and photos, as well as the complete cooperation of her children, husbands, relatives, doctors, fellow actors, and directors, this biography explores with candor and empathy the tempestuous, theatrical life of Judy Garland (1922-1969). Here, in all her glory and turmoil, is the singer-actress whose performances in films like The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St. Louis, A Star Is Born, and on concert tours enthralled audiences, a woman whose brazen and tender voice continues to captivate listeners decades after her death at age forty-seven.

War in the South Pacific: U.S. Marines Tell Their Stories, first published in 1943, is the account of the combat experiences of 21 Marines—told in their own words—fighting in the bloody Solomon Islands campaigns of World War II.

The stories provide the reader with an intimate view of war at the frontlines (on the ground or in the sky as a Marine aviator), with the Marines facing a determined enemy who would die rather than surrender.
The stories of these brave young men vividly portray the horrors of war as well as serve as a lasting reminder of the heroism displayed by these men.
