The Fedora Chronicles - Tribute To The Heroes of World War IIWelcome to our tribute page for the men and women who fought, served and sacrificed everything for the preservation and freedom through out the world: "World War II - Heroes Of Yesterday - Legends Of Tomorrow."

Here you will find articles written by regular Fedora Chronicles Staff members and our readers that help to tell the story of World War II and to chronicle the lives of those who contributed. Also, you'll find stories about the war from the perspective of those who stayed home and what happened during the war on The Home Front.

You'll also find links and reviews of films that were made during World War II as well as films that have been made since that are about global conflict - we will review both the good and the bad and how they stand up to history. We also will use this page to alert you to what specials are about to air on Television about World War II.

Jade Rooster (Paperback) by R.L. Crossland

Two Americans, one civilian, one navy enlisted man, are drawn into the hard-boiled underworld of early 20th Century Japan as they investigate the grisly discovery of three severed human heads adrift in an open boat belonging to a missing ship. Their exploration of the seedy side of the Asiatic Fleet exposes brutal violence and betrayal lurking in unexpected quarters. Blending the historical authenticity of Patrick O'Brian with the crackling narrative and dialogue of Raymond Chandler, Crossland establishes himself as a unique voice in nautical fiction.
