Special Operations Patrol Vehicles: Afghanistan and Iraq Jump Into the Valley of the Shadow: The War Memories of Dwayne Burns Communications Sergeant, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment Gothic Serpent: Black Hawk Down Mogadishu 1993

The patrol vehicles used by Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.

When Dwayne Burns turned 18 during World War II, he decided that he wanted to fight alongside America’s best. He joined the paratroopers and was assigned to the 508th Regiment of the 82d Airborne Division. Little did he suspect that a year later he'd be soaring in a flak-riddled C–47 over Normandy, part of the very spearhead of the Allied drive to seize back Europe.

The United States had demonstrated its military superiority worldwide with its lightning victory over Iraq in 1991.

A young private in the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Matty had been laid to rest beside his fellow heroes in the Normandy American Cemetery, but now French Army General Patrick Collet was writing to inform the family that Matty’s rifle had been recovered and was safe in his possession.

Fighting Blind: A Green Beret's Story of Extraordinary Courage A Dusty Boot Soldier Remembers The Tuskegee Airmen: An Illustrated History: 1939-1949

Fighting was a practiced routine for Lieutenant Ivan Castro. But when a mortar round struck the rooftop of his sniper’s post in Iraq, he found himself in a battle more difficult than even he could have imagined. The direct hit killed two other soldiers and nearly claimed Castro’s life as well. Mangled by shrapnel and badly burned, Castro was medevac’d to Germany more dead than alive. His lungs were collapsed. He couldn’t hear. One eye had been blown out, the nerve to the other severed.

In the weeks and months that followed, Castro would find that physical darkness was nothing compared to the emotional darkness of loss and despair. Desperate for a reason to live, he eventually fought his way back to health through exercise and a single-minded goal: running a marathon. Once he set his course, there was no stopping him. Stubborn to a point that at times bordered on insanity, he managed not only to recover but to return to active duty. Since 2007, he has run over two dozen marathons, including the Boston Marathon in 2013, where he was one of the runners diverted when the bombs exploded.

This book is a captivating read about life in the military. 24 Years of improbable but true tales of service in Uncle Sam's Army

Many documentaries, articles, museum exhibits, books, and movies have now treated the subject of the Tuskegee Airmen, the only black American military pilots in World War II. Most of these works have focused on their training and their subsequent accomplishments during combat. This publication goes further, using captioned photographs to trace the Airmen through the various stages of training, deployment, and combat in North Africa, Italy, and over occupied Europe. Included for the first time are depictions of the critical support roles of nonflyers: doctors, nurses, mechanics, navigators, weathermen, parachute riggers, and others, all of whom contributed to the Airmen’s success. In words and pictures, this volume makes vivid the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and the environments in which they lived, worked, played, fought, and sometimes died.

"I am impressed with the accuracy of the information and the selection of the corresponding photos." ―Vice President-Resource Development, Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation

"The book does an excellent job of showing what daily life was like for [the Airmen] as they trained." ―American Aviators of WWI

"The Tuskegee Airmen, An Illustrated History: 1939-1949 fills a significant void in the existing literature on these men by offering several hundred captioned photographs depicting African-American pilots before 1941 through the postwar. The photos bring to life the combat operations of the Airmen and provide glimpses of their training, combat support activities, and social life. . . . The photos tellingly reveal the depth of the segregation policies of the [American Air Force] of the 1940s. The extensive collection of images and detailed chronology make this book a welcome addition to the growing number of works on the Airmen." ―Air & Space Power Journal

The Boys of Benning: Stories From The Lives of Fourteen Infantry OCS Class 2-62 Graduates Sons and Soldiers On War
Sons and Soldiers
Our Price: $28.99
On War
Our Price: $29.00

The Boys of Benning highlights the lives of fourteen graduates of a 1962 Infantry Officer Candidate School class-before, during, and way after OCS. These men came from all across America to compete for officership in the United States Army. They emerged victorious from the crucible of OCS, and went on to serve our nation-in and out of the Army. Twelve of these fourteen men served combat tours in Vietnam. Most were wounded in action there; some more than once. They were point men in the so-called Cold War. For them, it was often hot war.

Beyond the battlefields of Vietnam and the long war's divisive impact on American unity, these "Boys of Benning" persevered in their patriotic duty. They rose to the challenges and opportunities of higher rank and responsibility with confidence born from competence. Whether they remained in uniform-as most did-or left the Army to pursue civilian careers, the men whose stories leap from the pages of The Boys of Benning exemplify the time-honored traditions of Duty-Honor-Country.

On War is the most significant attempt in Western history to understand war, both in its internal dynamics and as an instrument of policy. Since the work's first appearance in 1832, it has been read throughout the world, and has stimulated generations of soldiers, statesmen, and intellectuals.

"Undoubtedly one of the most useful books ever written."--The New Republic

Enduring Vietnam Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam Surrounded By Heroes: Six Campaigns with Divisional Headquarters
Enduring Vietnam
Our Price: $29.99
Enduring Vietnam recounts the experiences of the young Americans who fought in Vietnam and of families who grieved those who did not return.

The first battle book from Mark Bowden since his #1 New York Times bestseller "Black Hawk Down", "Hue 1968" is the story of the centerpiece of the Tet Offensive and a turning point in the American War in Vietnam.

In the early hours of January 31, 1968, the North Vietnamese launched over one hundred attacks across South Vietnam in what would become known as the Tet Offensive. Played out over 24 day and costing 10,000 lives, the Battle of Hue was by far the bloodiest of the entire war. “Hue 1968” is a gripping and moving account of this pivotal moment.

“An extraordinary feat of journalism . . . full of emotion and color.”―Karl Marlantes, Wall Street Journal

[Hardcover, 608 pages, Mark Bowden]

When the author was inducted into the U.S. Army in 1942 he had no reason to expect special treatment. Instead, because he was a typist and draftsman, he was grabbed up by an outfit desperately in need of those skills. It was the G-3 (Operations) Section of the 82nd Airborne. Len Lebenson thus gained a ringside seat for some of the greatest campaigns of World War II. With the rest of the All American Division he shared the blistering heat of Africa, the bone chilling cold of the Ardennes, the confusion of battle, and the ever-present enemy fire. Rising from private to master sergeant, Lebenson thought that he had “the best job in the army.” In this revealing memoir, however, he never fails to give full credit to the men on the firing line who suffered the greatest hardships and casualties.
