Rolling Thunder In A Gentle Land

by Andrew Wiest, Rolling Thunder In A Gentle Land Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rolling Thunder In A Gentle Land books, Fifteen renowned authors from widely varied backgrounds examine the Vietnam War, providing a fresh insight into this controversial conflict, even for those who have 'read it all before'. First-hand accounts, maps and contemporary photographs, analysis from the soldiers involved and new perspectives from combatants on both sides provide an incisive investigation into a fascinating and terrible war."This is a superb and compelling reexamination of the major historical, political, and ethical issues that continue to smoulder many decades after the conclusion of the Vietnam War, I highly recommend Rolling Thunder in a Gentle Land. It is among the best books of its kind that I've encountered over the last dozen years.†? Tom O'Brien, author of The Things They Carried

The Boys Of 67

by Andrew Wiest, The Boys Of 67 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Boys Of 67 books, In the spring of 1966, while the war in Vietnam was still popular, the US military decided to reactivate the 9th Infantry Division as part of the military build-up. Across the nation, farm boys from the Midwest, surfers from California and city-slickers from Cleveland opened their mail to find greetings from Uncle Sam. Most American soldiers of the Vietnam era trickled into the war zone as individual replacements for men who had become casualties or had rotated home. Charlie Company was different as part of the only division raised, drafted and trained for service. From draft to the battlefields of South Vietnam, this is the unvarnished truth from the fear of death to the chaos of battle, told almost entirely through the recollections of the men themselves. This is their story, the story of young draftees who had done everything that their nation had asked of them and had received so little in return – lost faces of a distant war.

Vietnam

by Andrew Wiest, Vietnam Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Vietnam books, Based on rich collections housed at the National Archive, the Center of Military History, and at the Vietnam Archive at Texas Tech, Voices from America's Failed Crusade will trace the American experience of Vietnam from the war's popular inception to its morale-crushing and bitter conclusion. Being careful to demonstrate that the Vietnam War was actually several different wars both in time and in space, Voices from America's Failed Crusade will allow the reader a grunt's-eye view of the conflict – from the steaming rice paddies and swamps of the Mekong Delta, to the triple-canopy rainforest of the Central Highlands, to the forlorn Marine bases that dotted the DMZ. The stories contained within Voices from America's Failed Crusade will detail everything from heroism to fragging, from helicopters hitting the LZs to rampant drug use. It will be a true and grippingly accurate portrait of the American war in Vietnam through the eyes of the men and women who fought in that far away land.
