The Fall of Saigon: The History of the Battle for South Vietnam’s Capital and the End of the Vietnam War

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe Vietnam War could have been called a comedy of errors if the consequences weren’t so deadly and tragic. In 1951, while war was raging in Korea, the United States began signing defense pacts with nations in the Pacific, intending to create alliances that would contain the spread of Communism. As the Korean War was winding down, America joined the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, pledging to defend several nations in the region from Communist aggression. One of those nations was South Vietnam. Before the Vietnam War, most Americans would have been hard pressed to locate Vietnam on a map. South Vietnamese President Diem’s regime was extremely unpopular, and war broke out between Communist Nor...

Inside Cuba: A Visual Introduction

by Chris Messner

Cuba occupies a place of undisputed fascination in the American psyche. Despite its proximity to America, this island nation remains a mystery to most Americans.

After writing his first ...

South Texas Drag

by Tony Molina

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales--from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong--come to...

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.

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...

I had to learn the hard way that not everything on the internet is true, much is plagiarized, and a lot can just disappear at a moment’s notice. I was never put in Facebook Prison, but I know many who were. Most of them were just posting or reposting articles that were not favorable to Obama or Hillary. I learned what my purpose was and I came to Facebook every day to fulfill that purpose. Do I understand SnapChat or the power of Instagram or how to market via Pinterest? No. Do I believe everyone should have an interest in politics? In some ways, yes.

The Fighting Cheyennes

by George Bird Grinnell

"This book deals with the wars of the Cheyennes. A fighting and a fearless people. When their struggles with the white men began, some of their older and wiser men strove earnestly to preserve peace, but their efforts failed. During these first wars between the whites and the Cheyennes, the United States Government was struggling for its very life. Its attention was concentrated on the war between the North and the South, and the movements of a few Indians on the thinly settled frontier attracted little notice. As more and more people pushed into the West, there was more and more fighting with Indians, until in 1878-9 it ceased — so far as the Cheyennes were concerned.Since the Indians could not write, the history of their wars has been set down by their enemies, and the story has been ...

Her book combines social history, shop floor ethnography, and in-depth interviews to explore the links between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market....

"...To Knock Jos. Johnston": Sherman, Atlanta, and the Sinews of War (Civil War Logistics Book 1)

by Michael R. Brasher

"Amateurs talk about tactics, but professionals study logistics."While Sam Grant was in a death stuggle with Bobby Lee in Virginia in 1864, so was Uncle Billy Sherman locking horns with Joe Johnston in the pine thickets of North Georgia.Maybe you know something about Grant and Lee and their Overland Campaign, otherwise known as "the 40-days."
