Navy Football, Clary, Jack
1 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

A true story of survival When Ehrhart came home to Perkasie, PA he was a Marine Corps Sergeant who killed for his country - but he wasn't old enough to buy a beer or own a car in his own name. Much worse, though, no one understood the terrible rage in his soul. Coming home, for Ehrhart, was a different kind of war - a war just as dangerous in its way as the war he'd left behind.

4 Manchester, William Goodbye, Darkness - A memoir of the Pacific War
New York Dell Publishing 1980 0440329078 / 9780440329077 Paper Back Fair - "Mar 29 - 97" written inside cover with some underlinging noted through out the book.All pages are present and spine is without defect. 
William Manchester has written powerfully about others - John F. Kennedy, the Rockefellers, Douglas MacArthur. Now he writes about himself and his years as a marine in the World War Ii Pacific theater. 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
5 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.

The Marine - A quadalcanal survivors final battle, Wofford, Ben and William Richard White
6 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.
