Kiloton Threat, Boykin, William G. LTG (Ret)
3 Boykin, William G. LTG (Ret) Kiloton Threat
B&H Publishing 2011 080544954X / 9780805449549 Paperback New 
Taken from what could be tomorrow's headlines, Kiloton Threat is a novel that explores the frightening potential of nuclear weapons in the Middle East today. Out of the house churches of rural Iran, a Christian masquerading as a Muslim gains the confidence of a high-ranking leader in the Iranian nuclear program and opens his eyes to Christianity. The manís newfound faith stirs his desire to flee to the West, taking with him intelligence that would allow Coalition forces to neutralize his nation's devastating capabilities. But no one in such a position could ever escape unnoticed. Enter Blake Kershaw, a highly trained U.S. Special Forces officer who has already made extraordinary sacrifices for his country that include faking death and losing his true identity. His mission to infiltrate Iran and extract the high-value defector strains the relationship with the woman he lovesó one of the few people on earth who knows his real story. With even more intensity, it shows the price that must sometimes be paid when political correctness fails and a man has to stand up for what is right. Praise for Kiloton Threat: "This fast-paced, ripped-from-the-headlines sequel by a founding member of the elite special operations unit Delta Force is packed with danger at every turn. It is sure to appeal to fans of Don Brown, Joel C. Rosenberg, and other authors of faith-based thrillers." Library Journal "LTG(R) Boykin has extracted his story straight from future headlines as he highlights the very serious threats posed by the Iranian nuclear rogram. This book is more reality than fiction as Blake Kershaw, a courageous young Special Forces officer, enters the dark world of espionage to try and stop the madness of the Iranian fanatics before they bring the world to the brink of a global nuclear conflict. This is a story that could unfold tomorrow." Frank Gaffney, founder and president, Center for Security Policy retail 15.99 Our Price 7.99

4 Clary, Jack Navy Football
Naval Institute Press 1997 1557501068 / 9781557501066 Hardcover New 
Heisman Trophy winners Joe Bellino and Roger Staubach and other Hall of Famers such as Dick Scott and Don Whitmire are just a few of Navy's football players whose illustrious careers on the gridiron earned their teams fame. In this history of the sport at the U.S. Naval Academy, noted sports journalist Jack Clary captures the excitement of their efforts along with the hundreds of other players who contributed to the legends of the game and its unique academy traditions. From 1879, the year of Navy's first game, through the banner years of the 1960s, to the resurgence of the sport's success in 1996, Clary chronicles more than eleven decades of the program. Football fans will delight in the almost play-by-play examination of the ten greatest Army-Navy games, beginning with the first game in 1890 and including the classic tie in 1926 that secured Navy's only national championship, and the three most exciting finishes ever in 1946, 1963, and 1989. Another important part of the book is the profiles of significant players (Jack Dalton, Slade Cutter, Bill Busik, Napoleon McCallum, and others) and outstanding coaches (Paul Dashiell, Bill Ingram, Swede Larson, Eddie Erdelatz, Wayne Hardin, George Welsh, and Charlie Weatherbie). The book also describes the wartime experiences of some of the players, including Medal of Honor recipients. Readers learn the origins of Navy's famed fight song "Anchors Aweigh, " the academy's colors, and its mascot. Illustrated with more than two hundred photographs, this book will provide hours of enjoyment to everyone interested in football, the Navy, and midshipmen athletes. Retail 46.95 Our Price 23.50

The Ten Thousand, Coyle, Harold
5 Coyle, Harold The Ten Thousand
Pocket Books 1993 0671885650 / 9780671885656 Paperback Good - "JCT Apr 94 & Nov 94" inside cover 
Harold Coyle has established himself as one of America's finest suspense novelists. With four consecutive New York Times best-selling novels of epic war, Team Yankee, Sword Point, Bright Star, and Trial by Fire, he is a master of the supercharged merging of global conflicts, strategy, politics, and probable world events. The Ten Thousand represents Harold Coyle at his visionary and apocalyptic best, and it's as intense, startling and thrilling as it is suspenseful. Hard on the heels of revolution and hope, Europe is suddenly in flames again. Germany is once more the dominant power, her leadership determined to win the world's respect, by bloody force if necessary. In Eastern Europe, where a weakened Russia is struggling against the ambitions of her neighbors, virulent nationalism and ancient ethnic hatreds fan the flames of war, this time with nuclear weapons as the ultimate threat. Caught up in the rising storm of a Europe in dangerous transition is an American army, no longer just keeping the peace, but drawn inexorably into a real shooting war. Harold Coyle's riveting - and all too possibly prophetic - new novel has the immediacy and the punch of today's fears and tomorrow's headlines. When the Ukraine refuses to hand its store of nuclear weapons to Russia, American troops are sent in to enforce compliance, while a right-wing nationalist German government seizes the opportunity to make a bid for world power.... Trapped by the rush of events, threatened by the specter-become-reality of a united Germany with atomic weapons, the American forces make a bold bid for survival by fighting their way to the safety of the Baltic Sea, crossing a hostile Germany like the Greeks in Xenophon'sclassic "The Ten Thousand." Coyle's grasp of geopolitical reality and his sure command of the battlefield - in the words of Stephen Coonts, "Nobody knows war like Harold Coyle, and nobody writes it better!"

Henry Holt and Company 1995 0805034994 / 9780805034998 Hardcover Good has previous owners name inside cover Yes 
By the end of 1914, the battered British forces were bogged down, yet hopeful that promised reinforcements and spring weather would soon lead to a victorious breakthrough. A year later, after appalling losses at Aubers Ridge, Loos, Neuve Chapelle, Ypres and faraway Gallipoli, fighting seemed set to go on for ever. Drawing on extensive interviews, letters and diaries, this book brilliantly evokes the soldiers' dogged heroism, sardonic humour and terrible loss of innocence through 'a year of cobbling together, of frustration, of indecision'. Over two decades' research puts Lyn Macdonald among the greatest popular chroniclers of the First World War. Here, from the poignant memories of participants, she has once again created an unforgettable slice of military history.

Manchester was on Guadalcanal and later, in 1945, on Okinawa when most of his unit fell amid the war's bloodiest carnage ... where he faced a duel to the death with a Japanese sniper. Not just a graphic picture of America's war with Japan, this is a catharsis of the author's soul, a searingly intimate account of what makes a man fight with courage ... and with heart.

Charlie Two Shoes and the Marines of Love Company, Peterson, Michael and David Perlmutt
13 Peterson, Michael and David Perlmutt Charlie Two Shoes and the Marines of Love Company
Naval Press Institue 1998 1557506728 / 9781557506726 Hardcover New 
This is the tale of an eleven-year-old Chinese boy, Tsui Chi Hsii - better known by his American name Charlie Tsui, or Charlie Two Shoes - who was befriended by a company of U.S. Marines sent to China in 1945 shortly after the end of World War II. Malnourished and often cold, Charlie lived in a mud hut just beyond the barbed wire protecting the men of Love Company, 4th Marines, 1st Marine Division. The Marines gave him food and clothing, taught him English, sent him to church, and paid for his schooling. But when the communists took over China in 1949, Love Company was forced out of the country, and Charlie was left behind. Back home the Marines moved on with their lives, yet they could not forget their young friend. Charlie, refusing to denounce his connection with the Americans, suffered immensely at the hands of the Maoist government. After thirty-five years, seventeen as a political prisoner, he finally managed to contact some of his old Marine Corps friends. They, in turn, joined together again to help bring Charlie to America. Numerous obstacles had to be overcome, but eventually, with irrepressible pluck, Charlie made his way to the United States in 1983, and two years later he was able to bring his family to this country as well - a true realization of the American dream.

Simon and Schuster 1965 Hardcover Good - clean copy photos 16 pages of photos 
On Christmas Eve 1942, the Commander in Chief of the French Fleet, Admiral Jean Louis Francois Darlan, was assassinated in Algiers, which had been occupied by the Allies only a few weeks earlier. A supremely enigmatic figure, Darlan had reached a position of great power and influence, almost equal, in the hierarchy of Vichy France, to that of Marshal Petain himself. He was an obstacle to the plans of many people, all of whom breathed a sigh of relief as the news came of his death. But who murdered him? And for what reasons? The Murder of Admiral Darlan is an important and dramatic work of history. It is also a shocking exploration into the hidden depths of wartime power politics.

The Marine - A quadalcanal survivors final battle, Wofford, Ben and William Richard White
15 Wofford, Ben and William Richard White The Marine - A quadalcanal survivors final battle
Naval Institute Press 2002 1557508801 / 9781557508805 Hard cover New 
"A time would come when I learned a different side of Death--a peaceful, caring side. Of the release from pain. We became old friends, Death and I. Thus it was that I felt sadness though not remorse when I saw Death's shadow in the background of a case that had come my way." Dr. Ben Wofford saw the approach of death in a terminal cancer patient of his. But he saw a great deal more. As he and William Richard White came to know one another while fighting a battle they both knew could not be won, they learned that they had shared an earlier battle, a half century before, in the hostile jungles of the Solomon Islands, in a place called Guadalcanal. The shared confidences and growing rapport between doctor and patient compelled Wofford to write this book, a mostly posthumous account of one Marine's struggles against the horrors of war and the postponement of death. This is the war in the Pacific that only veterans can tell. It is a reminder of the great debt a nation owes those who fight its battles. An unusual story about facing death in different ways and from different perspectives, it is both humbling and uplifting and echoes in the mind long after the pages are closed.
