Hell in a Very Small Place: The Siege of Dien Bien Phu, Bernard B. Fall
1 Bernard B. Fall Hell in a Very Small Place: The Siege of Dien Bien Phu
1985 Da Capo Press 0306802317 / 9780306802317 Paperback Very Good 
The siege of Dien Bien Phu, in which a guerrilla force of Viet Minh destroyed a technologically superior French colonial army, must rank with Waterloo, Gettysburg, Midway, Stalingrad, and Tet as one of the decisive battles in military history. Not only did Dien Bien Phu put an end to French imperial efforts in Indo-china, but it also convinced the Viet Minh, when they came to power in Communist North Vietnam, that similar tactics would prevail in their war with the United States. As an American army officer told Bernard Fall during the Vietnam War: ”What we’re doing here basically is, we’re exorcising Dien Bien Phu.”Bernard Fall in this monumental work has written an exhaustive, revelatory, and vivid account of the battle, leading the reader from the conference rooms of the U.S. State Department to the French Foreign Office to the front lines of Indo-China and the strategy sessions led by General Giap and Ho Chi Minh. Among the many historical curiosities here disclosed is evidence that then-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles offered atomic bombs to the beleaguered French, and that then-Senator Lyndon Johnson played a key role in defeating a proposal to aid the French with critical air support. Without U. S. aid, the fortress at Dien Bien Phu fell on the very day that the cease-fire conference opened in Geneva.Based on hitherto unavailable documentation from the French Defense Ministry, and replete with detailed maps of the many assaults, Hell in a Very Small Place is a first-rate military history. But even more powerful is the political wisdom it imparts about a war that was not only the beginning of the end of the French colonial empire but a rehearsal for American involvement in Vietnam.

Street Without Joy, Bernard B. Fall
2 Bernard B. Fall Street Without Joy
Harrisburg, PA The Telegraph Press 1967 Hard Cover Good Fair 
Sturdy. Light staining on page edges. Light wear on cover edges. In this penetrating, searching study, the author first tells how war came to what was then called French Indochina. He recounts how the Viet-Minh under two life-long Communists gained a foothold during the Japanese occupation; how when VJ-day dawned they were ready to take over the country and the anti-colonial revolution ; how they later avoided being drawn into set-piece battles; and how today they apply the same methods with deadly efficiency against the South Vietnamese and their American advisers. Thus begins the story of a struggle, which even now, nearly twenty years later, shows uncertain promise to ever being ended decisively on the battlefield. Without being a traditional chronology of a war, Street Without Joy details the key events...the battles that sealed the fate of close to 100,000 French soldiers and now of many U.S. servicemen; the failures of the tacticians to recognize the unconventionality of guerrilla warfare then and now. Dr. Fall also shows that this kind of war was and is a human, individual conflict, illustrating this with warm and sometimes unbelievable accounts of personal accomplishments and tragedy.

The Lost Battalion: Controversy and Casualties in the Battle of Hue, Charles A. Krohn
3 Charles A. Krohn The Lost Battalion: Controversy and Casualties in the Battle of Hue
Westport, CT Praeger 1993 0275945324 / 9780275945329 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
In 1968 in South Vietnam, a U.S. infantry battalion was ordered to charge a fortified North Vietnamese Army force 200 yards away over an open field with no artillery or air support. The defenders had every advantage. The Americans started moving across the field just before noon, every man a target. By the time they reached the tree line at the other side of the open field, nearly one half of the 400-man battalion was a casualty. Nine long, agonizing hours afterwards, U.S. artillery units began support fire, although the units remained desperately short of ammunition. The entrapped men saw their fate: death or captivity. Help from headquarters was neither offered or available. The following night the battalion commander decided to make a run for it. It was a gamble with high stakes. But the battalion did make it through enemy lines to a mountaintop where the NVA could not follow. When the Lost Battalion finally escaped encirclement, after nine hours with no artillery or air support, and 30 hours of fighting against an enemy that outnumbered them three to one, the tragic episode disappeared from official memory and relevant U.S. Army records--as if nothing had happened. Krohn tells the whole story--and it tells it with the words of those present. That some of the testimony comes from those responsible is remarkable.

5 Chris Mackey and Greg Miller The Interrogators: Inside the secret War Against Al Qaeda
New York Little, Brown and Company 2004 0316871125 / 9780316871129 Hard Cover As New Very Good 
More than 3,000 prisoners in the war on terrorism have been captured, held, and interrogated in Afghanistan alone.But no one knows what transpired in those interactions between prisoner and interrogator-until now. In THE INTERROGATORS, Chris Hogan, the senior interrogator at Bagram Air Base and in Kandahar, where al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoners were first detained and questioned, lifts the curtain. Soldiers specially trained in the art of interrogation went face-to-face with the enemy. These mental and psychological battles were as grueling, dramatic, and important as any in the war on terrorism. We learn how, under Hogan's command, his small group of 'soldier spies' engineered a breakthrough in interrogation strategy, rewriting techniques and tactics grounded in the Cold War. Hogan reveals the tricks of the trade, and we see how his team-four men and one woman-responded to the pressure and the prisoners. By the time Hogan's group was finished, virtually no prisoner went unbroken. Riveting and illuminating, THE INTERROGATORS is a fascinating work of nonfiction that reads like the most exciting of spy novels. It is the first and only inside account into this world we have never been allowed into and is sure to be one of the most talked about books of 2004.

7 David C. Isby Leave No Man Behind: Liberation and capture Missions
London Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2004 0297846744 / 9780297846741 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
If the big wars of the 20th century were about saving civilization and countries, small wars are about saving people. Instead of defeating Hitler, they are concerned with the capture of international pariahs like General Noriega, Radovan Karadic or Colonel Aideed - or the rescue of hostages or prisoners-of-war. This is the two-fold mission of the US Army's Special Forces, the 'Green Berets'. David Isby investigates their most famous missions from POW rescues at the end of the Second World War to the extraction of shot-down pilots from under the noses of the Bosnian Serb militia in 1995. Leave No Man Behind is a collection of vivid battle narratives, but it does more than tell dramatic war stories. Based on the latest evidence released under the Freedom of Information Act, it reveals why some missions were such great successes while others turned to tragedy. It compares them to other rescue operations, e.g. the British Army's recent action in Sierra Leone. As the author observes, raids and rescues will be more typical of warfare in the 21st century, so it is vital to understand the successes and failures of the Green Berets.

The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War, David Halberstam
8 David Halberstam The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War
New York Hyperion 2007 1401300529 / 9781401300524 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
David Halberstam's magisterial and thrilling The Best and the Brightest was the defining book about the Vietnam conflict. More than three decades later, Halberstam used his unrivaled research and formidable journalistic skills to shed light on another pivotal moment in our history: the Korean War. Halberstam considered The Coldest Winter his most accomplished work, the culmination of forty-five years of writing about America's postwar foreign policy. Halberstam gives us a masterful narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides. He charts the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu River and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides astonishingly vivid and nuanced portraits of all the major figures-Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim, and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgway. At the same time, Halberstam provides us with his trademark highly evocative narrative journalism, chronicling the crucial battles with reportage of the highest order. As ever, Halberstam was concerned with the extraordinary courage and resolve of people asked to bear an extraordinary burden. The Coldest Winter is contemporary history in its most literary and luminescent form, providing crucial perspective on every war America has been involved in since. It is a book that Halberstam first decided to write more than thirty years ago and that took him nearly ten years to complete. It stands as a lasting testament to one of the greatest journalists and historians of our time, and to the fighting men whose heroism it chronicles.

The US Air Force After Vietnam: Postwar Challenges and Potential for Responses, Donald J. Mrozek
11 Donald J. Mrozek The US Air Force After Vietnam: Postwar Challenges and Potential for Responses
Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama Air Force Press 1988 Paperback Very Good 
In this study, Dr. Donald J. Mrozek probes various groups of Americans as they come to grips with the consequences of the Vietnam War. He poses far more questions than he answers, and some of what he says may invite strong dissent. Yet it will serve its author's purpose if something here provokes creative thinking and critical reexamination, even of some long-cherished ideas. Viewing the Vietnam War as a logical outcome of American defense thinking has challenging implications, as does seeing the "cold war consensus" on foreign affairs as an oddity. Yet this is not a litany of objection and protest. For example, Doctor Mrozek raises serious questions about how the contemporary notion of deterrence has emerged; and dealing with such questions forthrightly could make deterrence more effective. So, too, questioning the past relationship of military professionals with the mass media is not an assignment of guilt but an invitation to develop a beneficial and cooperative relationship. Nor is this study a tale of gloom and despair; it is rather an appeal for self-consciousness and self-awareness. It is a plea for us to take command of the problems that beset us by taking control of ourselves first. The Vietnam War stands uneasily on the edge of public memory—slipping into the past and becoming part of our national history, yet still too recent to be forgotten by those who lived through its trials. But history seeks a meaning in its clouded events, a retrospective order and pattern that could instruct, and sometimes even inspire, successive generations. At present, then, Americans face the peculiar dilemma of having to respond to the impact of a war for which there is still no comprehensively shared vision.

Tactics of the Crescent Moon: Militant Muslim Combat Methods, H. John Poole
14 H. John Poole Tactics of the Crescent Moon: Militant Muslim Combat Methods
Emerald Isle, NC Posterity Press 2004 0963869574 / 9780963869579 Trade Paperback Good 
Light wear. This book is still required reading at Forts Benning and Leavenworth (and some Marine commands), because it fully details the Islamists' yet-to-be-defeated 4GW method. That method is best countered by "light" infantry tactics, but America has had only "line" infantry since 1943. Its modern sequel travels mostly by truck and fights mostly with supporting arms. That's because the Pentagon still practices a "higher-tech" version of 2GW (killing as many enemy as possible). How to operate the latest equipment takes up so much of the young infantryman's day that he never learns how to sneak up on an expert defender. He and his buddies don't become any less visible by donning advanced electronics, so their traditional small-unit maneuvers remain just as predictable. Instead of historical artifacts, all Posterity Press books should be viewed as vehicles of long-overdue change.

Parallels: The Soldiers' Knowledge of Oral History of Contemporary Warfare, J. T. Hansen, A. Susan Owen and Michael Patrick Madden

Hawthorne, NY Aldine De Gruyter 1992 0202303926 / 9780202303925 Trade Paperback Good 
Parallels reclaims the experience of American and Soviet participants in the two longest and most devastating episodes of contemporary warfare, Vietnam and Afghanistan, and places them within the context of social and behavioral theory. As texts, the narratives, here ordered and re-encoded, are as fragmentary as the war experiences they recount. Much of their, language is hermetic; sometimes it is brutal and unpalatable. Within the broader context of this book, however, they attain to a historical relevance, posing a challenge to conventional understandings of contemporary warfare.

Bloomington, IN Indiana University Press 2005 0253344816 / 9780253344816 Hard Cover Used As New Used As New 
"The [North Vietnamese] now held most of Binh Long province from Chon Thanh north to the Cambodian border with the exception of the town of An Loc. It was clear that An Loc would be the scene of the next major North Vietnamese effort. A lot was at stake. Not only were the lives of the South Vietnamese soldiers and their American advisers on the line, but so too was the prestige of the South Vietnamese government. The loss of a province so close to Saigon would be a disastrous loss of face for President Thieu and his administration. From the American perspective, the battle would be the supreme test of Vietnamization and President Nixon’s policies in Vietnam. More than that, however, was the fact that very little stood between the North Vietnamese and Saigon except the forces at An Loc." —from The Battle of An Loc With the knowledge born of firsthand experience, James H. Willbanks tells the story of the 60-day siege of An Loc. In 1972, late in the Vietnam War, a small group of South Vietnamese held off three North Vietnamese divisions and helped prevent a direct attack on Saigon. The battle can be considered one of the major events during the gradual American exit from Vietnam. An advisor to the South Vietnamese during the battle, Willbanks places the battle in the context of the shifting role of the American forces and a policy decision to shift more of the burden of fighting the war onto the Vietnamese troops. He presents an overview of the 1972 North Vietnamese Easter Offensive, a plan to press forward the attack on U.S. and ARVN positions throughout the country, including Binh Long province and Saigon. The North Vietnamese hoped to strike a decisive blow at a time when most American troops were being withdrawn. The heart of Willbanks’s account concentrates on the fighting in Binh Long province, Saigon, and the siege of An Loc. It concludes with a discussion of the Paris peace talks, the significance of the fighting at An Loc, and the eventual fall of South Vietnam.

The 7th Infantry Regiment, John C. McManus
27 John C. McManus The 7th Infantry Regiment
New York A Forge Book 2008 0765303124 / 9780765303127 Trade Paperback Very Good 
The 7th Infantry's motto, "Willing and Able," speaks volumes about its past. Throughout America's history, the soldiers of this regiment have proven, through their sacrifice, their bloodshed and their sweat, that they are willing and able to fight America's wars. At practically ever crucial moment, the 7th has been there, shaping the future of the country and, by extension, the world. Acclaimed historian John C. McManus takes readers through the amazing story of this ever-present regiment in modern warfare, from Korea to its current toils in the Middle East. McManus tells the tale of those ordinary infantrymen who have always made up the 7th. These soldiers have always been, and probably always will be, the heart and soul of the United States Army. The 7th is a vital part of America's military tradition, and McManus tells its story complete with the struggle, anguish, fear, sacrifice, triumph, and pride of its soldiers. McManus provides a compelling glimpse of not only the infantryman's journey through American history, but the shaping of our nation as a whole.

John Leonard retired from the US Navy in 1974 as a Commander, having commanded the two fleet ballistic missile submarines, the U.S.S. ABRAHAM LINCOLN (SSBN-602) and the U.S.S. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (SSBN-640) during his last five years of naval service. Until January of 1974 his Naval career was distinguished. At that time, however, a group of senior officers attempted to have him relieved for cause due to an incident that occured in September 1973. This book tells the story of the fight to clear his name, the other naval officers who brought themselves to honor in this fight, and the work of the spunky Navy Justice Advocate General Corps (JAG) officer who led the charge to do so.

Annapolis, MD Naval Institute Press 1989 155750587x / 9781557505873 Trade Paperback Very Good 
This is the true story of the legendary Vietnam War hero John Ripley, who braved intense enemy fire to destroy a strategic bridge and stall a major North Vietnamese invasion into the South in April 1972. Told by a fellow Marine, the account lays bare Ripley's innermost thoughts as he rigged 500 pounds of explosives by hand-walking the beams beneath the bridge, crimped detonators with his teeth, and raced the burning fuses back to shore, thus saving his comrades from certain death. First published in 1989, the book has broad appeal as a riveting tale of adventure. But John Miller has taken this daring act of heroism beyond the specifics of time and place to provide new insights into the nature of war and warriors, characteristics that have remained unchanged for centuries and will remain valid for generations to come. It has been on the Marine Corps Commandant's recommended reading list since 1990. Newly illustrated by Col. Charles Waterhouse, USMCR (Ret.).

Plaster (The Ultimate Sniper), a retired Army major, served three tours with the secretive "Studies and Observation Group," aka SOG, during the Vietnam War-a background he has put to good use in this authoritative and insightful look at the now defunct commando unit. Plaster does much to illuminate both this frequently misunderstood group and its extraordinary participants. Made up entirely of volunteers, SOG tackled a wide range of vital and dangerous duties, including missions deep into enemy territory and rescues of downed American pilots. Special Forces veterans in particular will delight in the descriptions of America's old tribal allies, the Montagnards of Vietnam. Specialists in poison-arrow warfare, the primitive "'Yards," Plaster explains, were both fierce fighters and a constant source of wonderment to the Americans. Plaster reveals the core of the relationship between 'Yards and Yanks in a telling anecdote in which two Green Berets win over a village chieftain with the help of some pipes and two cans of Prince Albert tobacco. Elsewhere, on a more somber note, Plaster sheds light on part of the ongoing mystery of POWs and MIAs in Southeast Asia. The secretive nature of SOG, he writes, was such that its members were accounted for via a "double bookkeeping" system. The method "proved so confounding that the Pentagon had understated casualties, a fact that became evident when families of MIAs demanded more information." A true insider's account, this eye-opening report will leave readers feeling as if they've been given a hot scoop on a highly classified project. Photos not seen by PW.

On My Own: How I survived the Vietnam War, Lotus Tran
34 Lotus Tran On My Own: How I survived the Vietnam War
Lotus Tran 2015 0692498605 / 9780692498606 Paperback Very Good 
Clean and sturdy. Small ink spot on the bottom edges of several pages. Light creasing on the cover. During the Vietnam War, there was a young girl who wondered what the jungle hid. Lotus Tran grew up in Qui Nhon, and she imagined that the flashing lights she often saw in the sky were dragons fighting each other. When she went into the jungle to seek shelter and food, she thought it would be a paradise, with dragons resting from battle. Her dreams were shattered when she saw the reality of the war. Wild animals, land mines, and booby traps were the least of her concerns. She witnessed battles between South Vietnamese soldiers and Viet Cong, or the North Vietnamese Army, and was almost killed by a sniper. She was shot at, nearly gunned down, almost blown up, and closed to being captured. Instead of a paradise, she found a place of death and destruction where her next step could be her last. On My Own shares Tran’s life experiences, recalling village life as her people try to live normally in the midst of war. She remembers the pain she felt as she watched villagers die in front of her in Vietnam and at sea as she and her people fled the country. This memoir demonstrates what the Vietnam War did to Tran’s family, her people, and her country.

35 Lt. Carey H. Cash A Table in the Presence: The Dramatic Account of How a U.S. Marine Battalion Experienced God's Presence Amidst the Chaos of the War in Iraq
Nashville, TN W Publishing Group 2004 0849918235 / 9780849918230 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
On April 10th, 2003, the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, faced with the task of seizing the presidential palace in downtown Baghdad, ran headlong into what Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North called, "the worst day of fighting for U.S. Marines." Hiding in buildings and mosques, wearing civilian clothes, and spread out for over a mile, Saddam Hussein's militants rained down bullets and rocket propelled grenades on the 1st Battalion. But when the smoke of the eight-hour battle cleared, only one Marine had lost his life. Some said the 1st Battalion was incredibly lucky. But in the hearts and minds of the Marines who were there, there was no question. God had brought them miraculously through that battle. As the 1st Battalion's chaplain, Lieutenant Carey Cash had the unique privilege of seeing firsthand, from the beginning of the war to the end, how God miraculously delivered, and even transformed, the lives of the men of the 1st Battalion. Their regiment, the most highly decorated regiment in the history of the Marines, was the first ground force to cross the border into Iraq, the first to see one of their own killed in battle, and they were the unit to fight what most believe to have been the decisive battle of the war-April 10th in downtown Baghdad. Through it all, Carey Cash says, the presence of God was undeniable. Cash even had the privilege of baptizing fifty-seven new Christians-Marines and Sailors-during the war in Iraq. The men of the 1st Battalion came to discover what King David had discovered long ago--that God's presence could be richly experienced even in the presence of enemies. Here is the amazing story of their experience.

Innocent Victims In The Global War On Terror, M. A. Salloomi
37 M. A. Salloomi Innocent Victims In The Global War On Terror
Central Milton Keynes Author House 2011 1449085261 / 9781449085261 Trade Paperback Used As New 
The book presents a very important and prominent case that Caused abundant arguments between the West & Islam after 11/09/2001. They are the allegations against a lot of the Charity and Humanitarian Organizations which had been accused for supporting Terrorism. Never the less the book replies scientifically to the big question, Does the Islam and it's organizations are new enemies? Strugglers and wrestler? or competitors. 09/11 had put on the track a new enemy, which led to designation of administrative arrangements, legal measures and political view points that are hardly changeable or can get rid of their legality, even under the changing governmental official-administration. Consequently the unemployment, the poverty and the diseases had increased so much. Most of people and minorities, countries, liberties and the civil rights became innocent victims to an endless war and undetermined delusive enemy and eventually slaughtered the peace-pigeons.

Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account Of Operation Redwing And The Lost Heroes Of Seal 10, Marcus Luttrell
38 Marcus Luttrell Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account Of Operation Redwing And The Lost Heroes Of Seal 10
New York, NY Back Bay Books 2007 0316067601 / 9780316067607 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors. A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

42 Marcus Luttrell Service: A Navy SEAL at War
New York Little Brown 2012 0316185361 / 9780316185363 Hard Cover Like New New Signed
Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom. In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he's seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before. A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it alone, and no one will be left behind.

On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive. This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers. A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

New York Henry Holt 2006 0805078606 / 9780805078602 Hard Cover New New 
A powerful account of eighteen months in the lives of three soldiers and a journalist, all patients in Ward 57, Walter Reed's amputee wing Time magazine's Michael Weisskopf was riding through Baghdad in the back of U.S. Army Humvee, an embedded reporter alongside soldiers from the 1st Armored Division, when he heard a metallic thunk. Looking down, he saw a small, dark object rolling inches from his feet. He reached down and took it in his hand. Then everything went black. Weisskopf lost his hand and was sent for treatment to Ward 57 at Walter Reed Medical Center, the wing of the armed forces hospital reserved for amputees. There he crossed paths with Pete Damon, Luis Rodriguez, and Bobby Isaacs, three soldiers whose stories he learned during months in the ward. Alongside these men, Weisskopf navigated the bewildering process of recovery and reentry, and began reconciling life before that day in Baghdad with everything that would follow his release. Blood Brothers is the story of this difficult passage--for Weiss-kopf, Damon, Rodriguez, Isaacs, and hundreds of others--a story that began with healthy men heading off to a war zone, and continued through the months in Ward 57 as they prepared their minds and bodies for a different life than the one they left. A chronicle of devastation and recovery, this is a deeply affecting portrait of the private aftermath of combat casualties.

Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack. 13 HOURS sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Written by New York Times bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff, this riveting book takes readers into the action-packed story of heroes who laid their lives on the line for one another, for their countrymen, and for their country. 13 HOURS is a stunning, eye-opening, and intense book--but most importantly, it is the truth.

The United States Navy's fight for control of the waters of Southeast Asia. By far the greatest contribution of the narrative is the insight it provides into the hows and whys of United States involvement in Vietnam, and the attempt of that involvement to bring freedom to those who were unable to achieve it by their own efforts. We see the United States more as a caretaker and less as a policeman in terms of motivation for its involvement half a world away. And . . . we see the tremendous price paid by those who served to ensure that freedom - ordinary men who, by fate, were thrown together in a strange land, and who fulfilled a part of their destiny, and their Nation's, on the brown water.

Imperial Grunts, Robert D. Kaplan
55 Robert D. Kaplan Imperial Grunts
New York, NY Random House 2005 1400061326 / 9781400061327 Hard Cover Good Fair 
In this landmark book, Robert D. Kaplan, veteran correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly and author of Balkan Ghosts, shows how American imperialism and the Global War on Terrorism are implemented on the ground, mission by mission, in the most exotic landscapes around the world. Given unprecedented access, Kaplan takes us from the jungles of the southern Philippines to the glacial dust bowls of Mongolia, from the forts of Afghanistan to the forests of South America–not to mention Iraq–to show us Army Special Forces, Marines, and other uniformed Americans carrying out the many facets of U.S. foreign policy: negotiating with tribal factions, storming terrorist redoubts, performing humanitarian missions and training foreign soldiers. In Imperial Grunts, Kaplan provides an unforgettable insider’s account not only of our current involvement in world affairs, but also of where America, including the culture of its officers and enlisted men, is headed. This is the rare book that has the potential to change the way readers view the men and women of the military, war, and the global reach of American imperialism today. As Kaplan writes, the only way to understand America’s military is “on foot, or in a Humvee, with the troops themselves, for even as elites in New York and Washington debated imperialism in grand, historical terms, individual marines, soldiers, airmen, and sailors–all the cultural repositories of America’s unique experience with freedom–were interpreting policy on their own, on the ground, in dozens upon dozens of countries every week, oblivious to such faraway discussions. . . . It was their stories I wanted to tell: from the ground up, at the point of contact.” Never before has America’s overarching military strategy been parsed so incisively and evocatively. Kaplan introduces us to lone American servicemen whose presence in obscure countries is largely unknown, and concludes with a heart-stopping portrait of marines in the first battle in Fallujah. Extraordinary in its scope, beautifully written, Imperial Grunts, the first of two volumes, combines first-rate reporting with the sensitivity and insights of an acclaimed writer steeped in history, literature, and philosophy, to deliver a masterly account of America’s global role in the twenty-first century.

At War at Sea: Sailors and Naval Combat in the Twentieth Century, Ronald H. Spector
57 Ronald H. Spector At War at Sea: Sailors and Naval Combat in the Twentieth Century
New York Viking 2001 0670860859 / 9780670860852 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
At War at Sea is a fascinating account of the most important naval conflicts of the twentieth century. The book begins with a gripping account of one of the most decisive battles in history, the 1905 Battle of Tsushima, between the Japanese and the Russians, and ends with the sophisticated missile engagements off the Falklands and the Persian Gulf. Ronald H. Spector, former director of naval history for the U.S. Navy, chronicles not only the mechanics of battle and the changing technology of war, but also presents these extraordinary stories from the point of view of the participants. How did it feel to be the target of a 15-inch shell at the Battle of Jutland or to experience a depth charge attack in a submarine in the Battle of the Atlantic? What was it like to be under attack by Stuka dive bombers off Crete or kamikazes off Okinawa during World War II? Using more than a hundred diaries, memoirs, letters, and interviews as well as official records, Spector takes an in-depth look at fighting sailors-in peacetime and in time of war-that is unparalleled both in scope and emotional intensity.

One Day As a Lion: True Stories of the Vietnam War, Ronnie D. Foster
58 Ronnie D. Foster One Day As a Lion: True Stories of the Vietnam War
Entry Way Publishing 2007 0979394422 / 9780979394423 Trade Paperback Good 
Light wear on cover. In 1776, the men of this land formed together to fight for freedom and independence from the British Empire. Almost one hundred years after that, the descendants of those men fought another revolution to maintain that freedom. One hundred years later, again their descendants were called upon to defend the freedom of this land in America's longest war to date. One Day as a Lion is a gut-wrenching reminder of the war and social revolution of the 1960's. This was a time when patriotism was not always the norm and when soldiers and heroes were often treated shamefully by their own people. Ronnie D. Foster takes a unique look at these brave and often unsung heroes of Collin County, Texas. Most, little more than boys, were transformed into men through extraordinary circumstances and volatile situations. These are the stories of those who did not return and how and why they died. The intense action of the firefights and attacks include well-documented information and eye-witness accounts on positions, weapons, and units involved, both friendly and hostile.

Combat Actions in Korea (Army Historical Series), Russell A. Gugeler
59 Russell A. Gugeler Combat Actions in Korea (Army Historical Series)
Washington D.C. U.S. Government Printing Office 1970 Cloth Very Good 
This book is a collection of accounts describing the combat action of small Army units-squads and platoons, companies and batteries. These are the units that engage in combat, suffer the casualties, and make up the fighting strength of the battalions, regiments, divisions, corps, and finally, of the field army. Combat is a very personal business to members of such a small unit. Concerned with the fearful and consuming tasks of fighting and living, these men cannot think of war in terms of the Big Picture as it is represented on the situation maps at corps or army headquarters. Members of a squad or platoon know only what they can see and hear of combat. They know and understand the earth for which they fight, the advantage of holding the high ground, the protection of the trench or hole. These men can distinguish the sounds of enemy weapons from those of their own; they know the satisfying sound of friendly artillery shells passing overhead and of friendly planes diving at an objective. They know the excitement of combat, the feeling of exhilaration and of despair, the feeling of massed power, and of overwhelming loneliness. The author has tried to describe combat as individuals have experienced it, or at least as it has appeared from the company command post. In so doing, much detail has been included that does not find its way into more barren official records. The details and the little incidents of combat were furnished by surviving members of the squads and companies during painstaking interviews and discussions soon after the fighting was over. Conversely, many facts have been omitted from the narrative presented here. The accounts tell only part of the complete story, intentionally ignoring related actions of cause and effect in order to keep one or two small units in sharper focus. The story of action on Heartbreak Ridge, for example, describes fighting that lasted only one or two hours, whereas the entire battle for that hill went on for several weeks. Sometimes there are obvious gaps because important information was lost with the men who died in the battle. Sometimes the accounts are incomplete because the author failed to learn or to recount everything of importance that happened. Show More

Servant On The Edge Of History, Sam James
60 Sam James Servant On The Edge Of History
Garland, TX Hannibal Books 2005 0929292669 / 9780929292663 Trade Paperback Good 
Has previous owners name on the inside of the front cover. Some creasing on front cover from a fold. An awful time . . . An awesome God. Again and again it happens. Bombs fall in a nearby shopping district. Enemy soldiers terrorize neighboring homes. Crossfire decimates civilian cars at a roadblock. War infuses every quarter of Vietnam. Most Americans long ago have left for safety. The James family remains. Sam James and his wife and four children sit tight in ravaged South Vietnam to share Jesus when the Vietnamese most need ministry--as the country falls to communism. Even during the frightening Tet Offensive, Sam communicates Christ's love and peace as he helps Vietnamese believers start churches and gird up spiritually for the dark days ahead. What makes one man willing to stare death in the face to obey God's call to serve the Vietnamese? And what becomes of all the seeds planted among these fledgling Christians as communist oppression advances?
