With the Old Breed

With the Old Breed

by E B Sledge

With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa is a World War II memoir by Eugene Sledge, a United States Marine.

Empire Of the Summer Moon

Empire Of the Summer Moon

by S C Gwynne

Empire of the Summer Moon spans two astonishing stories. The first traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful Indian tribe in American history. The second entails one of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last and greatest chief of the Comanches. Although readers may be more familiar with the tribal names Apache and Sioux, it was in fact the legendary... Read more about this item

by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Goodwin effectively melds these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was born.
A Bright Shining Lie

A Bright Shining Lie

by Neil Sheehan

One of the most acclaimed books of our time--the definitive Vietnam War exposé and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

Embattled Courage the Experience Of Combat In the American Civil War

Embattled Courage the Experience Of Combat In the American Civil War

by Linderman, Gerald F

A sensitive study of men at war, Embattled Courage goes beyond the confines of the Civil War, for it provides penetrating insights into the romantic myth of battle, the nature of soldiering, and the difficulties veterans of all wars face in returning to a civilian society that has escaped the experience of combat and thus has little understanding - and very different memories - of war itself.
