The Comanche WArs, Bailey, Tom
2 Bailey, Tom The Comanche WArs
Monarch Books 1963 Paperback Good 
By Nature the Comanche's were a war-loving people. Almost from birth a Comanche was taught to fight. To be a warrior was the greatest honor that could come to him, and to die in battle only meant that he would the sooner move on to the Happy Hunting Ground. The Comanche's had no code forbidding murder, rape or torture; nothing prevented them from stealing horses, cattle or humans. Unlike other Indian tribes, they never knew when to quit, even when the fight was going against them. They were mean, clever and treacherous. Known as the Butchers of the Staked Plains, the uncontrollable who defied authority to the bitter end, they fought Spaniards, Americans and other Indians, and were among the last red men to be subdued by the whites.

Force Red: a police agency dedicated to nuclear peace - or a collection of bored killers? When under stress of idleness 38,000 men superbly trained in the arts of destruction begin to practice their trade in their own time, the moment has come to disband them. But what if they won't disband? what if their leader, a man molded rom childhood to the practice of military violence, is prepared to hold the U.S. to ransom rather than dissolve his command? To General Breed, leader of men and lover of women, the continued existence of Force Red was worth a nuclear holocaust. It couldn't happen here, could it"

The Greatest Generation, Brokaw, Tom
6 Brokaw, Tom The Greatest Generation
Random House 1998 0375502025 / 9780375502026 Hardcover Good None 
"In the spring of 1984, I went to the northwest of France, to Normandy, to prepare an NBC documentary on the fortieth anniversary of D-Day, the massive and daring Allied invasion of Europe that marked the beginning of the end of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. There, I underwent a life-changing experience. As I walked the beaches with the American veterans who had returned for this anniversary, men in their sixties and seventies, and listened to their stories, I was deeply moved and profoundly grateful for all they had done. Ten years later, I returned to Normandy for the fiftieth anniversary of the invasion, and by then I had come to understand what this generation of Americans meant to history. It is, I believe, the greatest generation any society has ever produced."          In this superb book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America, to tell through the stories of individual men and women the story of a generation, America's citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America. This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by common values--duty, honor, economy, courage, service, love of family and country, and, above all, responsibility for oneself. In this book, you will meet people whose everyday lives reveal how a generation persevered through war, and were trained by it, and then went on to create interesting and useful lives and the America we have today. "At a time in their lives when their days and nights should have been filled with innocent adventure, love, and the lessons of the workaday world, they were fighting in the most primitive conditions possible across the bloodied landscape of France, Belgium, Italy, Austria, and the coral islands of the Pacific. They answered the call to save the world from the two most powerful and ruthless military machines ever assembled, instruments of conquest in the hands of fascist maniacs. They faced great odds and a late start, but they did not protest. They succeeded on every front. They won the war; they saved the world. They came home to joyous and short-lived celebrations and immediately began the task of rebuilding their lives and the world they wanted. They married in record numbers and gave birth to another distinctive generation, the Baby Boomers. A grateful nation made it possible for more of them to attend college than any society had ever educated, anywhere. They gave the world new science, literature, art, industry, and economic strength unparalleled in the long curve of history. As they now reach the twilight of their adventurous and productive lives, they remain, for the most part, exceptionally modest. They have so many stories to tell, stories that in many cases they have never told before, because in a deep sense they didn't think that what they were doing was that special, because everyone else was doing it too. "This book, I hope, will in some small way pay tribute to those men and women who have given us the lives we have today--an American family portrait album of the greatest generation."                  In this book you'll meet people like Charles Van Gorder, who set up during D-Day a MASH-like medical facility in the middle of the fighting, and then came home to create a clinic and hospital in his hometown. You'll hear George Bush talk about how, as a Navy Air Corps combat pilot, one of his assignments was to read the mail of the enlisted men under him, to be sure no sensitive military information would be compromised. And so, Bush says, "I learned about life." You'll meet Trudy Elion, winner of the Nobel Prize in medicine, one of the many women in this book who found fulfilling careers in the changed society as a result of the war. You'

This Hallowed Ground, Catton, Bruce
7 Catton, Bruce This Hallowed Ground
Doubleday 1956 Hardcover Good 
First published in 1955, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Bruce Catton's classic account of the Civil War simultaneously captures the dramatic scope and intimate experience of that epic struggle in one brilliant volume. Covering events from the prelude of the conflict to the death of Lincoln, Catton blends a gripping narrative with deep, yet unassuming, scholarship to bring the war alive on the page in an almost novelistic way. It is this gift for narrative that led contemporary critics to compare this book to War and Peace, and call it a "modern Iliad." Now over fifty years old, This Hallowed Ground remains one of the best-loved and admired general Civil War books: a perfect introduction to readers beginning their exploration of the conflict, as well as a thrilling analysis and reimagining of its events for experienced students of the war.

The Ten Thousand, Coyle, Harold
9 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.

New York Atheneum 2002 0689848331 / 9780689848339 Hsrdcover Very good no 
Pulitzer Prize award-winning historian James M. McPherson has written for young readers a stirring account of the greatest conflict to happen on our nation's soil, the Civil War, bringing to life the tragic struggle that divided not only a nation, but also friends and family. From the initial Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, to the devastating loss of life at Shiloh as Ulysses S. Grant led the Union to unexpected victory, to the brilliance of Stonewall Jackson's campaign at Shenandoah, to General Pickett's famous charge at Gettysburg, to the Union's triumph at Appo-mattox Court House, Fields of Fury details the war that helped shape us as a nation. Also included are personal anecdotes from the soldiers at the battlefront and the civilians at home, as well as profiles of historical luminaries such as Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, and Ulysses S. Grant. McPherson also explores the varied roles that women played during the war, healthcare on the battlefield, and the demise of slavery. McPherson's narrative is highlighted with black-and-white photographs taken by Civil War photographers Mathew Brady and Timothy O'Sullivan, period oil paintings, and key campaign and battlefield maps, that make Fields of Fury the consummate book on the American Civil War for kids.
