An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

In 1967, Joe Putnam, fresh out of officer training school, is shipped overseas to Vietnam as part of President Johnson’s American Adviser program. Putnam would be one of the American soldiers advising the South Vietnamese Army on how to conduct a war against the North Vietnamese Army and their allies in the south, the Viet Cong. This plan would supposedly keep the Communists at bay without actually getting the U.S. into full-fledged war in Southeast Asia.In his military memoir, now retired Lt. Col. Joe A. Putnam perfectly captures the action, the people, the battles, and of course the mixed feelings of a young man far away from home in a foreign land.Most of all, even now, Putnam wonders why he survived numerous harrowing episodes when others did not....

The Rangers Honor

by Daniel Glosky

This book is about some of the problems Veterans have going to the VA. In my case still on going. All my problems occurred after I was honorably discharged. In the year 2000 I was gainfully employed as a Tool & Die Maker and happy doing my job until the VA talked me into doing a study for the government. Actually it was for some drug company that the VA was working for, or with. I came across some old Documents One: dated 2/27/01, is telling us that Approximately 6000 patients or Veterans from 88 different sites will participate in this study. Document two-dated 2/21/01, this is talking about liability for negligence. Compensation may or may not be payable. When I started taking the study drug I was having problems from the start. I was encouraged to keep taking the study drug by the VA. ...

THE LAFAYETTE SQUADRON: [Translated]

by M. P. LYNCH

Americans love a good fight, and if the cause is just, all the better. When the Kaiser tried to bring authoritarian rule to the west of the Rhine, American expatriates in France stepped up to stop him. Men who knew how to fly offered their services to the young French Air Force - as did men who did not know how to fly, but insisted that they could with hilariously disastrous results. The great Ace Lufbery, along with his comrades Thaw, Hall, Rockwell, and others more or less invented the "dogfight" over the bloody fields of Verdun and Flanders, and when they were not on the attack they soothed their restlessness with drinking, fighting, shooting, and adopting a couple of pet lions to serve as their mascots. Soon these men came together in a single unit under Captain George Thenault, ...

The Hidden Story of Richard Sorge

by Conrad Bauer

Richard Sorge was the greatest spy that the world has ever known.
Read his story and find out how his spy work changed the course of history.

It can be easy to think of spies just as we see them in the movies. All of the high speed car chases, the witty one liners, and the femme fatales feed into a common conception of an international man of mystery. But real spy work is different. Real spy work is, ultimately, human. It is conducted by flawed men, exploiting the fear and ambition of similarly damaged individuals. At the end, the credits do not roll. Spies are far likelier to find themselves caught and executed in a foreign land than they are to drive off into the sunset with a new paramour on their arm. Real spies are real people and they are in real danger at all tim...

The 1865 Fall of Richmond in Pictures

by Charles A Mills

Captured in pictures. The last death agonies of the Confederacy: By late afternoon it seemed that all who could leave the city were stampeding. Commissary stores were thrown open, and their hoarded contents distributed to eager crowds. As the day wore on the scenes at the various government stores changed from the fairly orderly distribution of supplies to rank plundering. Whiskey stocks were broken into and the streets ran with liquor. Factories, arsenals and mills were ordered destroyed, some were blown up, and others were burned. The fires were soon out of control. Admiral Raphael Semmes wrote, “The Tredegar Iron Works were on fire, and continual explosions of loaded shell stored there were taking place....The population was in a great state of alarm.” Admiral Semmes ...

Star-Crossed: A Quantitative Reassessment of the Relative Combat Performance of the Army of Tennessee Compared to the Army of Northern Virginia

by Michael R. Brasher

Everyone KNOWS the Army of Northern Virginia was a "winner" and its sister army, the Army of Tennessee was a "loser," right?In his book, Two Great Rebel Armies: An Essay in Confederate Military History, Richard M. McMurry draws the somewhat controversial conclusion that Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was not only the better led army, but that the composition of Lee's army indeed made it the better army, when compared with its Western sister, the Army of Tennessee.While few historians would beg to differ with the first conclusion - the likes of Bragg, Polk, Hardee and Hood simply do not compare with the leadership offered by Lee, Jackson and Longstreet - historians have generally not cared to examine the potential for a more fundamental reason for the success of the one army, and the fai...

The Book of Five Rings (The Way of the Warrior Series)

by Miyamoto Musashi

Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life....

The Real Unprivileged: We, the People, an HSP's View

by James Montgomery Alexander

The Real Unprivileged is an autobiographical novel by James Montgomery Alexander, a United States Marine and a Detroit Police tactical officer born and raised in the city during the 1950s and 60s. Both his INTP personality and his being an Empath gives this story its uniqueness.Please read and enjoy. An honest review on Amazon would be appreciated. While young, he was programmed to do what was expected of him. He joined the above organizations because he believed that was his path in life. It shows how programming and brainwashing can affect a human and their actions. This book's main theme is not about the police or the military worlds, but how an INTP and Empath cope with the stresses of those realms.The proverbial pot was stirred a few times....

REMF Life Inside The Wire

by Kevin Baldwin

REMF Life Inside The WireMOST VIETNAM VETERANS SAW COMBAT. Actually the opposite is true; only a relatively small percentage was ever involved in combat. In fact, it is likely less than 30% of all who served there ever saw combat of any sort during their war. (Myths & Misconceptions: Vietnam War Folklore - by Michael Kelley, July 1998).Some 2.6 million Americans served in the Republic of Vietnam between 1957 and 1975. So what were the other "likely more than" 70% of them up to in that place? Or more to the point, who wants to read a Vietnam book or watch a Vietnam film or documentary about a Company Clerk or a Switchboard Operator? Or how about the Mess Sergeant or the Motor Pool? Or even a focus on the BOQ? Borrr...ing! Then again, if you haven't read about or watched any of that, an...

Submerged on the Surface: The Not-So-Hidden Jews of Nazi Berlin, 1941–1945

by Jr., Richard N. Lutjens,

Between 1941 and 1945, thousands of German Jews, in fear for their lives, made the choice to flee their impending deportations and live submerged in the shadows of the Nazi capital. Drawing on a wealth of archival evidence and interviews with survivors, this book reconstructs the daily lives of Jews who stayed in Berlin during the war years. Contrary to the received wisdom that “hidden” Jews stayed in attics and cellars and had minimal contact with the outside world, the author reveals a cohort of remarkable individuals who were constantly on the move and actively fought to ensure their own survival....

Why would a wealthy Anglo/Irish woman choose to leave the splendor of her large exquisite family home nestled in the lush green hills of Ireland, her own private gardens, and a fairy tale palace where everyone loved her, to live in the slums of Manchester?
By the late 20th century, Europe was not only a battlefield, but living conditions of many European cities were only slightly better to those in war torn countries. Tensions rose while topics such as socialism, women's rights, worker's reform, and Home Rule in Ireland set fuses for what was to become one of the most turbulent times in European history. The world was changing but not without much bloodshed both in Socialist countries and at home. Eva Gore Booth yearned to change all that but how?

Dooming the Confederacy: The Decisive Battle of Champion Hill

by Michael R. Brasher

"We are flanked on the left!"The message delivered by the courier from Stevenson's division was quickly confirmed by the rising intensity of the sound of gunfire coming from the north. Lieutenant General John C. Pemberton's luck had just run out. Ulysses S. Grant and his Army of the Tennessee were closing in.Trying to serve two masters, Pemberton had been reticent to move the Confederate army out of the Vicksburg defenses to find and attack Grant. President Davis's admonition that Vicksburg must be held, Pemberton felt, ran directly counter to General Joseph E. Johnston's orders. His theater commander had preemptively ordered him to take to the field to attack Grant who had achieved a lodgment south of Vicksburg and had moved east to take Jackson. With conflictlng orders and the ensuing de...

Worked To Death: Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust

by Amy Cravitz

This is the seventh book that Amy has put together in her quest to uncover every faucet of daily life in the hell of a German extermination camp. Translated from its original Polish, Amy strives to maintain the exact flavor of psychological terror that the Jewish workers at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to endure. Many were put to death or simply died on their own. Others were given scraps of food in return for slaving away for long days of merciless back breaking labor. Sometimes the work seemed worse than death itself. Here, the every day life of one such worker is chronicled, but with a twist. This particular worker finds his way into one of the 'trick programs' put together to fool Red Cross visiting groups. In this fascinating account, we can readily see how easy it would have been to trick ...

Local chieftains were administrating their own areas of the country until Harald Hårfagre united Norway into one kingdom and became the first king around 885.The fundamental element for the Vikings was the ships, the instrument and symbol of Viking expansion.

The Kaiser, Führer & John: One Man, Two Wars (MERSEYSIDE TALES OF WAR Book 2)

by Chris Whitfield

When he died in 1984, John Rollinson appeared to have lived an undistinguished life, and for the majority of his eighty-seven years this had steadfastly been the case. Yet in the Great War between 1917 and 1918, he had trained at the notoriously brutal Étaples Camp in Northern France, experienced the mud hell of the Ypres battleground, and suffered behind the wire as an Allied Prisoner of War on a diet of black bread and acorn coffee. And then during the Second World War as an army cook, he was exposed to the terrors of Dunkirk, subjected to chemical experiments at Porton Down, and forced to witness the horrors of the liberated Buchenwald Concentration Camp in Germany.Based on a true story, The Kaiser, Führer & John is a humbling, remarkable account of stoicism, fortitude, and courage, a...

Rash Behari Bose: The Father of the Indian National Army, Vol. 1

by Elizabeth Eston

Rash Behari Bose was one of the most vital heroes of the Indian independence movement. Yet, there are few who are as misunderstood, and there is an unfortunate prevalence of widely circulating misconceptions regarding this great freedom fighter. Such false information is due largely to the fact that Bose wrote the majority of his voluminous publications in an old form of Japanese, making them largely inaccessible to the public. It is the aim of this book to clear up such misunderstandings by bringing to light the underexplored publications of Rash Behari Bose, and making available the words that Bose wished to share with the world. Rash Behari Bose was born in 1886, and from the age of fifteen he dedicated his life to the Indian independence movement. After his involvement in the promine...

The Thirteenth Century

by James Walsh

The object of the book is to interpret, in terms that will be readily intelligible to this generation, the life and concerns of the people of a century who, to the author's mind, have done more for human progress than those of any like period in human history. There are few whose eyes are now holden as they used to be, as to the surpassing place in the history of culture of the last three centuries of the Middle Ages. Personally the author is convinced, however, that only a beginning of proper appreciation has come as yet, and he feels that the solution of many problems that are vexing the modern world, especially in the social order, are to be found in these much misunderstood ages, and above all in that culmination of medieval progress the period from 1200 to 1300......

Wars and Words

by Adrian Musgrave

I never met my great-uncle, George Clarke Musgrave. Born in 1874, he answered the Reaper's call in 1932 and now lies at rest with his parents at Swanage in the beautiful countryside of Dorset. I did not know him but, for more than a decade now, I have lived with him, walked with him and dreamed with him. But now he is gone and his going has left us with the sad reality that he can no longer recount his life and times to you in person. That task has slipped several branches down the family tree to me and it is with some trepidation, and a keen desire to keep true to his memory, that I have dedicated myself to channelling for you the stories of this fascinating, multi-faceted, complex character.George Clarke Musgrave's time in this world carried him through the great challenges and changes o...

The Price of Defeat: The History of British Operations to Transfer Personnel, Technology, and Equipment from Germany to Britain after World War II

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsAfter the last shots of World War II were fired and the process of rebuilding Germany and Europe began, the Western Allies and the Soviet Union each tried to obtain the services of the Third Reich's leading scientists, especially those involved in rocketry, missile technology, and aerospace research. Naturally, this was a delicate affair due to the fact many of the German scientists were not only active Nazis but had helped the Nazi war machine terrorize the world. At the same time, by the late war period, the Anglo-American Allies formed a clear picture of the Soviet state. Though forced to ally with the USSR's dictator, the West came to understand Communist Russia represented yet another hungry tot...
