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. This story tells how I did it. How does it compare to yours?"[Manns'] straightforward style, characterized by precise word usage, is outstanding." _ Colonel Al Guidotti"...[Manns' performance as]... a superb example of the professionalism of the Air Force."

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

by AARON Albers

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

by Jesse Davisson

Digging into one’s family history can reveal unusual surprises. In my case, I recently discovered my great-grandfather, Jesse C. Davisson’s first-hand account of his 25-year military experience during an epic period in American history.Jesse was no angel when he first joined the Army in 1893 as an ordinary young man in Philadelphia. 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.

Wine In The Sand: My Adventures through Desert STORM

by Jim White

I was starting the paperwork to leave the Air Force while coming to the end of my 4 year hitch. Next I was sitting in the middle of a war zone with no end to my military stint in sight. This is how I found myself in Desert Shield/Storm, and how my friends and I did everything possible to break every rule we were given. 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! I'm sure everyone who went to Desert Storm has a story. This one is mine....

Headlong into Fury: A WWII Pilot's Riveting Story of Rescue and Redemption

by Ron White

“One shell whizzed past my ear, ripping the oxygen mask off my face. Seconds later, our wing was strafed and started to unravel . . . We were unable to control the plane any longer. She started to plummet.” Frank Kirkland dreamed about serving his country as a fighter pilot during World War II but was reassigned as a bomber pilot—where the dangerous flying conditions proved to be less glamorous and more deadly. 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....

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

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. ...
