Red Thunder Tropic Lightning

The Vietnam War served as a weapon to use on the innocent for reasons that
had little to do with the conflict itself. ... One thing lost in all the sound and fury,
unfortunately, was a real desire to understand the war as it actually took place.

T his BOOK EXAMINES the world confronted by the men of an American combat division during the Vietnam War. Although the unit in question is the 25th Infantry Division, this is not a unit history or standard military chronology. Instead, I try to view all of the major parts of the soldiers' world-including subjects as diverse as climate, living conditions, deadly combat, and morale. The world inhabited by the soldiers of the 25th Division was not theirs alone; the men and women who served with other frontline units in Vietnam will immediately recognize the major landmarks. Using the 25th Division as a focal point, I hope to help the people of today better understand what the Vietnam War was like in fact, not fiction. This work is based on a variety of sources. The documentary foundations come from a great number of 25th Division records generated during the war; the most important of which are the large quarterly Division reports. They, in turn, are complemented by the quarterly reports that came from II Field Force, Vietnam, the Army headquarters for the units operating in the provinces near Saigon. The Center of Military History, Department of the Army, provided these documents to me while I was doing research on the village war in a Vietnamese province. I used this research to write The Dynamics of Defeat: The Vietnam War in Hau Nghia Province (Westview Press, 1991), which deals with the political and military struggle waged by both sides in an important part of the 25th Division's area of operations.

Mender was a wonderful man who followed in the dictates and aspirations of the Lord. He fought vigorously to ensure that Africa did not fall into the hands of the British Empire. His history is a story of a brave and a daring African who singlehandedly decided to liberate Africa from the hands of colonialist Britain. I know no other person that had done so much for the continent of Africa as Mender in our entire history. Mender's name is not a household name for obvious reasons as could be understood from reading of this book, but his legacy shall remain etched in the hearts of all Africans. His contribution is immense and his role in the liberation of Africa is incomparable with any other individual in the continent.

The Franco-Austrian War of 1809 was NapoleonÍs last victorious war. He would win many battles in his future campaigns, but never again would one of EuropeÍs great powers lie broken at his feet. In this respect 1809 represents a high point of the First Empire yet at the same time NapoleonÍs armies were declining in quality and he was beginning to display the corrosive flaws that contributed to his downfall five years later. In this volume Gill tackles the political background to the war and the opening battles of Abensberg, EggmÙhl and Regensberg. He explores the motivations that prompted Austria to launch an offensive against France while Napoleon and many of his veterans were distracted in Spain. Though surprised by the timing of the Austrian attack on the 10th April, the French Emperor completely reversed a dire strategic situation with stunning blows that he called his ïmost brilliant and most skillful maneuversÍ. Following a breathless pursuit down the Danube valley, Napoleon occupied the palaces of the Habsburgs for the second time in four years. Basing his work on years of primary research and battlefield visits, Gill provides a thorough analysis replete with spectacular combat, diplomatic intrigue and the illustrious cast of characters that populated this extraordinary age. The concluding volumes will take the war to its conclusion, including NapoleonÍs first unequivocal repulse at the Battle of Espern-Essling, the titanic Battle of Wagram and the neglected struggle at Znaim that led to armistice.

When the Warflowers Bloomed is a story of courage and devotion in the ashes of the aftermath of World War II. Lusty, tough-minded infantry commander, Mark Brayden, still alive because of his instincts, liberates a Nazi concentration camp and discovers a wasted Liese Weissman dying of starvation and brutality, a previously sensuous, pampered Dresden musician, yet alive because of her dreams. Their instincts and dreams touch in a dramatic moment of awakening passions despite the horrors and nightmares of the war and the camps. Mark is forced into a life and death struggle to decide who will live and who will die. Thus, continues a vivid story of desperation and love in the rubble of Germany during the summer and autumn of 1945. They are joined by a coterie of GIs, Germans, and refugees. The ensemble includes ex-Nazis Klaus Trummer and Hannah Grinze, who plot against them, and an unlikely pair of Sergeant "Tork" Torkelson, son of a backcountry preacher, and voluptuous, guilt-ridden Heidi Koenig, a former Hitler Youth. All struggle against the destruction, betrayal, and regulations in the fragile postwar peace.

The author draws vigorous portraits of the era's leading figures, including Woodrow Wilson, the cerebral president; Teddy Roosevelt, the saber-rattling ex-president; Henry Cabot Lodge and Robert LaFollette, bitter Senate foes, the former favoring intervention, the latter never wavering from his conviction that the war was anathema; and many others. Ellis also focuses on working people and the growing labor movement that led to vicious confrontations such as the deadly massacre at John D. Rockefeller's Ludlow mine in Colorado.

In this classic study, Pulitzer Prize-winning author James M. McPherson deftly narrates the experience of blacks--former slaves and soldiers, preachers, visionaries, doctors, intellectuals, and common people--during the Civil War. Drawing on contemporary journalism, speeches, books, and letters, he presents an eclectic chronicle of their fears and hopes as well as their essential contributions to their own freedom. Through the words of these extraordinary participants, both Northern and Southern, McPherson captures African-American responses to emancipation, the shifting attitudes toward Lincoln and the life of black soldiers in the Union army. Above all, we are allowed to witness the dreams of a disenfranchised people eager to embrace the rights and the equality offered to them, finally, as citizens.

Banner-carrying Salvation Army marchers, stone-silent Quakers, jumpy Midwestern revivalists, closed-fellowship Brethren, and Prayer-book Anglicans all made up the mixed multitude sent to the Middle Kingdom by the China Inland Mission (CIM). In China's Millions, the newest volume of the acclaimed Studies in the History of Christian Missions series, veteran historian Alvyn Austin crafts a compelling narrative of the sprawling history of the China Inland Mission. Austin explores two questions: How did British evangelicalism feed into American fundamentalism, eventually becoming global Protestantism, and how did evangelical Christianity become Chinese? Along the way he introduces readers to a remarkable array of sights, from the visionary, charismatic sect-leader Pastor Hsi, to the wordless book, a missionary teaching device that fit perfectly with Chinese color cosmology, to the opium-soaked aftermath of the North China Famine of 1877-79. Clear, readable, and well researched, China's Millions digs deeply into the Chinese and Western past to tell a story that no one would think to tell, the strange yet hopeful result of two cultures colliding.
