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 Nam Within

by Leonard Reese

The Nam Within, by Leonard Reese, is a narrative non-fiction memoir that speaks to veterans from all wars and others who deal with PTSD, depression, and the feeling that they may be “going crazy,” and their families and friends, so that they can see that survival is possible and that they are not alone, despite the battle scars that keep rising to the surface long after the physical combat ceases. "I did the best that I could to tell my story with all of the truth that I have within me. Almost fifty years have passed since my thirteen-month tour of duty in Vietnam from 1969–1970. I still see some of those images as clearly as if they were happenings within a blink-of-an-eye past. While others, partially confused and shaking like a pile of pick-up-sticks awaiting the next attempt at ...

Cape of Storms: U-Boat Operations Off Southern Africa 1939 - 1945

by Peter Kelly

This book covers the German Navy's operations off the African coast between 1939 and 1945. It is a little known fact that U-boat operations were significantly disruptive to Allied shipping, resulting in convoying and delayed handling in ports. U-boats operated in packs initially and as the war swung in the favour of the Allies, individually. The U-boat movements between Germany and Japan and back are also covered briefly. The book leans heavily on the research done by Turner, Gordon-Cumming and Betzlers' book War in the Southern Ocean but tries to link what happened at the time with modern sources....

The Philosopher Abolitionist: William L. Garrison's Life in Ideas

by Timothy Pifer

This book provides a brief biographical and historiographical examination of the noted Immediate Abolitionist leader, William Lloyd Garrison using chiefly his own words. The book is intended for both casual readers and researchers looking for a cited and scholarly work on the abolitionist movement.

Open Wounds: My memoir as a brown-water U.S. Navy sailor in the Vietnam War

by Robert W. Smith

After 50 years of keeping the tormenting memories of the Vietnam War at bay, Robert W. Smith unveils the horrific experiences he lives with daily. He weaves over 130 letters and pictures he sent to his family during a 15-month tour of duty between 1967 and 1968 in South Vietnam into a cohesive and flowing story. Open Wounds transforms disjointed examples of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual hardships into an engaging journey that modern-day military families easily empathize with. Ironically, Smith opens the very wounds that haunt him while sharing the letters, meant only for his wife, which bring his readers on harrowing patrols of the brown-water rivers of the Mekong Delta. Open Wounds is a book that highlights the Vietnam War era but carries relevance to the pains of modern-day...

Understanding the Vietnam War

by Dr. Thomas Bruce

The Vietnam War, also called the Vietnam Conflict, is one of the great defining wars in American’s history, with an influence on the American psyche only surpassed by the Civil War. The armies of the United States have won and lost many battles during the wars it has become engaged it, but until Vietnam America had never actually lost a war. Lost is probably too strong a word to use. The American homeland was never attacked, and US forces were never decisively defeated in the field. America simply failed to win the war. The nation was unable to find the tactics to defeat the enemies will to continue fighting, while the war drained their own stamina to persevere with the conflict any longer. The ultimate withdrawal of US armed forces from Vietnam bruised America’s ego and shook th...

We will also focus on the description of some fights with their participation.Military aviation in America developed in several different ways than in Europe. The geographical position contributed to the development of the carrier fleet and deck aircraft. From a technical point of view, American aircraft also stood out against the European: they had an unusual fuselage layout (P-38, P-39), powerful radial engines and the prevalence of machine-gun armament. In general, speed and range prevailed over maneuverability and lightness. This was due to the...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...
