Easy Targets: An American Soldier in Iraq

by Clinton Allen

"We're hit! We're hit! We need help!" someone yelled across the radio. We couldn't see anything because of the smoke, fire, and dust kicked up by the explosion. "IED! IED! Alpha Twelve is hit!" The radio again went crazy with what had just happened in our convoy. "Stop the truck!" I yelled. My driver came to quick stop, and I tried to see out my window, but with the smoke billowing, it was impossible. SGT Allen was attached to a truck - driving platoon in Baiji, Iraq in 2003. Easy Targets is his first hand account of his experiences while on base and under enemy fire where the daily grind of fear, paranoia, and death took its toll on him....

So There I Was...Tales from the Flight Line

by Blaine McMillan

"So There I Was...Tales from the Flight Line" is intended to offer a look through the window of my career in the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1981 through 2003. Beginning with life at the Canadian Forces Recruit School in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia the journey winds its way through the different air force squadrons that I was assigned to and finally landing at the point when I retired from active service. The people in this book are real as are the incidents that I witnessed however some of the "Tales" have been ethically sanitized as not to offend some parties. The last two chapters are dedicated to informing the reader how a callous Canadian government has systematically allowed the Canadian military, and more specifically the Royal Canadian Air Force slide into the procurement abyss and h...

Chronicle of the Kings of England: From the Earliest Period to the Reign of King Stephen

by William of Malmesbury

The history of the English, from their arrival in Britain to his own times, has been written by Bede, a man of singular learning and modesty, in a clear and captivating style. After him you will not, in my opinion, easily find any person who has attempted to compose in Latin the history of this people. Let others declare whether their researches in this respect have been, or are likely to be, more fortunate; my own labour, though diligent in the extreme, has, down to this period, been without its reward. There, are, indeed, some notices of antiquity, written in the vernacular tongue after the manner of a chronicle, and arranged according to the years of our Lord. By means of these alone, the times succeeding this man have been rescued from oblivion: for of Elward, a noble and illustrious...

by Oliver Poole

This eyewitness account reveals the truth about Baghdad's Red Zone during the American occupation, and describes the reality of daily life as the city descended into bloody civil war.

Or risk being shot at a roadblock when you drive your pregnant wife to hospital?

As the Daily Telegraph's Baghdad bureau chief, Oliver Poole first arrived in Iraq in 2003, crossing the Kuwait border in the bank of a US armoured vehicle.

Four Weeks in the Trenches

by Fritz Kreisler

This brief record of the fighting on the Eastern front in the great war is the outcome of a fortunate meeting. The writer chanced to be dining with Mr. Kreisler soon after his arrival in this country, after his dismissal from the hospital where he recovered from his wound. For nearly two hours he listened, thrilled and moved, to the great violinist's modest, vivid narrative of his experiences and adventures. It seemed in the highest degree desirable that the American public should have an opportunity of reading this narrative from the pen of one in whose art so many of us take a profound interest. It also was apparent that since so little of an authentic nature had been heard from the Russo-Austrian field of warfare, this story would prove an important contribution to the contemporary hist...

Excuses, However Valid, Do Not Accomplish the Mission: Learning Life Lessons To Prepare For My Finest Hour

by Col Robert Manns

Winston Churchill said, “To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if the moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.”If we fail to learn from our life's lessons we may not be prepared for our finest hour.

And it was consistently bloody from beginning to end. Whether you look at the last days of the Third Reich, when faltering defenders—many of them civilians—were systemically butchered by Soviet troops, or the bitter and pointless Japanese struggle against overwhelming odds as the vengeful Americans advanced on their home islands, the loss of life was horrific. And that was all before the first and only nuclear weapons ever to be used in war were dropped ...

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

1914: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and World War I - Part one (A Tale of Two Nations Book 1)

by Melina Druga

“Austria-Hungary considers itself therefore from this moment in a state of war with Servia.” Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and his wife Sophie were shot and killed by Slavic nationalist Gavrilo Princip on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, Bosnia. The event, at first, was of little more than regional interest, but soon it became clear war clouds were enveloping Europe. In Canada, the news was met with excitement and pride. The nation committed to Great Britain 20,000 to 30,000 soldiers within two to three weeks, and there is a surplus of recruits. Meanwhile, in the United States, the government is focused on isolationism and neutrality. Capitalists and newspapers schemed about how Americans could profit from a war, and tourists refused to change thei...

COMM UP: A Marine's Reflections on the Opening of the Iraq War

March 19, 2003 and America is on the eve of war. In the Kuwaiti desert, thousands of young Americans and their coalition partners stand ready to start the war against Iraq, if ordered too. Many of them would be facing combat for the first time, and each of them carry their own thoughts and worries, which would change from day to day; the initial drive into Iraq and the early problems in the war, the weather and operational pause to the fall of Baghdad. And then getting home. Now 15 years after his involvement in the invasion, Aaron Albers commemorates the anniversary by sharing his story of a time when he was one of the thousands involved in the drive to Baghdad....

A Soldier's Diary 1893-1918: From Philadelphia to the Philippines,Crawfish Jesse Tells It Like It Was

His diary follows his subsequent adventures––from learning to ride horse with the 7th Cavalry and befriending Indian Scouts to surviving ambushes and water-boarding prisoners––all while serving in the American Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection and World War I. A Soldier’s Diary 1893-1918: From Philadelphia to the Philippines, Crawfish Jesse Tells It Like It Was reveals the good and the bad in our human character. I...

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.

We didn't just make lemonade, we juiced it up with high octane, then lit the box it came in on fire! M-16s, condoms, alcohol, and women. We might die, but we were going to laugh our way there!

After getting shot out of his plane and landing on German-occupied soil, Kirkland learned about rescue and redemption during some of the fiercest years of the twentieth century. Decades later, Kirkland’s story of fighting for his country would be the last fighting chance to mend his relationship with his son....

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel ...

Mongoose Bravo: Vietnam: A Time of Reflection Over Events So Long Ago

by Timothy McCullough

This project has taken me a lot longer than anticipated. I would guess that I’ve been at it for more than twenty years. It started as a result of wanting to let the mother of a fallen soldier know what happened to her son, as well as where his death took place. She and I had been in contact over the years, during which she asked quite a few questions; so, I began writing it all down. I may have been better served if I had pushed my memories of Vietnam off into the ditch alongside the road traveled and driven on without looking back. In the long run, I believe it has been therapeutic. Therefore, worth the time I put into writing it all down. We lived, and fought as a unit, covering each other’s backs. Most came home to tell their own stories, many didn’t. ...

Ottoman Art of War: Power Tactics & Strategy For Today

by Steffan Ileman

They came on horseback from Central Asia and went on to grow one of the longest-lasting empires in history. They established history's first multicultural state centuries before British colonies in North America declared the United States of America. They had superior military and organizational skills that ended the Medieval Age in Europe and set the stage for the Renaissance and the Age of Reason as the power of feudal lords eroded under their big guns. Their legendary elite combat core, the Janissaries, was a phenomenon in transformative education.

Ottoman Empire was Europe's first welfare state based on privately funded charities. The Empire's trade pact with France was history's first free trade agreement. Like the United States the Ottoman Empire attracted talent, know-h...

ADMIRAL LEE the MENTOR of HUMAN RACE: SECTION A (The Unknown Leaders Their Struggle and Success Book 3)

by Young H. D. Kim

We read this series of books not because we do not know the globe is one, but because we want to know when and how it became the ONE GLOBE, and what it looked like before it became one and what it will look like for us in the coming years.

The ONE GLOBE where we live our lives today was built upon wars. No blames for all the fighting and conquering per se though, because it is the way of nature.

When there’s a victor or a survivor, there’s always a victim too; mommy lions do not hunt and kill poor animals for fun, but to survive, to feed their babes. For the record, ancient Roman Empire, from which we owe so much for today’s our way of life, was built upon the hard works of the slaves, and when the slaves were freed and given the citizenship, the country col...

The Hand of a Merciful God

by David Ballenger

150 years after the Civil War, stories and tales survive. Libraries are filled with historical documents, manuscripts and photographic images that cover all aspects of the American Civil War. There are thousands of history books and documentaries giving us facts that have been recorded but countless stories have never been recorded—personal stories of men who fought and died, stories of men who survived. We don’t know all of their stories; we don’t know the whole story. Yet this is our history and these are our ancestors. To truly understand what drove these men to look into the face of death on a daily basis we must listen to them. But, the time is far past where we could speak to those who knew the truth, who experienced the war. Now we only have the stories from our ancestors as ...

An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

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....

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...

Miss Eda, My Dearest Friend: The Love Story of Henry Johnson Spicer and Eda Lucinda Ferguson

by Renee Moore Frost Great-Great Grand Daughter

In 1942 the 1800's Ferguson home burned to the ground with the only item being saved was a trunk of precious letters from loved ones. These letters have been preserved and now transcribed to relive the life and times before, during and after the cruel war known as the Civil War of 1861-1865. As I assembled the letters in date order, I found the many families of Wilkes County, North Carolina interacting with my Ferguson-Spicer family. These families shared their faith in God, the tragedy of war and the love of the Blue Ridge Mountains."For the Blood of the Southern men flashes through their veins & declares they will die in defense of the Southern Rites."Thomas L Ferguson July 27, 1861"Genl Jackson leading we flanked them on their right when the fight commenced it was a fox chase till...

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...

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 ...

Gettysburg’s Peach Orchard: Longstreet, Sickles, and the Bloody Fight for the “Commanding Ground” Along the Emmitsburg Road

by James A. Hessler

More books have been written about the battle of Gettysburg than any other engagement of the Civil War. The historiography of the battle’s second day is usually dominated by the Union’s successful defense of Little Round Top, but the day’s most influential action occurred nearly one mile west along the Emmitsburg Road in farmer Joseph Sherfy’s peach orchard. Despite its overriding importance, no full-length study of this pivotal action has been written until now. James Hessler’s and Britt Isenberg’s Gettysburg’s Peach Orchard: Longstreet, Sickles, and the Bloody Fight for the “Commanding Ground” Along the Emmitsburg Road corrects that oversight.On July 2, 1863, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee ordered skeptical subordinate Lt. Gen. James Longstreet to launch a massive assa...
