1 Ambrose, Stephen E. Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy t o Hitler's Eagle's Nest
Pocket 2002 0743464117 / 9780743464116 Paperback Good 
On the bloody battlefields of World War II Europe, Easy Company, 506th Airb orne Division, U.S. Army, got the toughest missions. As good a rifle compan y as any in the world, Easy was always in the thick of the fight -- from pa rachuting into France under a hellish crossfire early D-Day morning, to the final capture of Hitler's supposedly impregnable Eagle's Nest at Berchtesg aden. New York Times bestselling author Stephen E. Ambrose tells of the men in this brave unit who fought, went hungry, froze, and died for their country, and for one another -- taking 150 percent casualties and earning Purple Hearts as combat pay. Drawing on interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers' journals and letters, Ambrose chronicles the gripping true stories of these American heroes.

Henry Holt and Co. 2002 0805062882 / 9780805062885 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the first volume of his monumental trilogy about the liberation of Europ e in WW II, Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Atkinson tells the riveting story of the war in North Africa The liberation of Europe and the destruction of the Third Reich is a story of courage and enduring triumph, of calamity and miscalculation. In this fi rst volume of the Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson shows why no modern rea der can understand the ultimate victory of the Allied powers without a gras p of the great drama that unfolded in North Africa in 1942 and 1943. That f irst year of the Allied war was a pivotal point in American history, the mo ment when the United States began to act like a great power. Beginning with the daring amphibious invasion in November 1942, An Army at Dawn follows the American and British armies as they fight the French in Mo rocco and Algeria, and then take on the Germans and Italians in Tunisia. Ba ttle by battle, an inexperienced and sometimes poorly led army gradually be comes a superb fighting force. Central to the tale are the extraordinary bu t fallible commanders who come to dominate the battlefield: Eisenhower, Pat ton, Bradley, Montgomery, and Rommel. Brilliantly researched, rich with new material and vivid insights, Atkinson's narrative provides the definitive history of the war in North Africa.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the second volume of his epic trilogy about the liberation of Europe in World War II, Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Atkinson tells the harrowing story of the campaigns in Sicily and Italy In An Army at Dawn-winner of the Pulitzer Prize-Rick Atkinson provided a dr amatic and authoritative history of the Allied triumph in North Africa. Now , in The Day of Battle, he follows the strengthening American and British a rmies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then, mile by bloody mile, fig ht their way north toward Rome. The Italian campaign's outcome was never certain; in fact, Roosevelt, Churc hill, and their military advisers engaged in heated debate about whether an invasion of the so-called soft underbelly of Europe was even a good idea. But once under way, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never w avered, despite the agonizingly high price. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino were particularly difficult and lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian pe ninsula. Led by Lieutenant General Mark Clark, one of the war's most comple x and controversial commanders, American officers and soldiers became incre asingly determined and proficient. And with the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory at last began to seem inevitable. Drawing on a wide array of primary source material, written with great drama and flair, this is narrative history of the first rank. With The Day of Battle, Atkinson has once again

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The magnificent conclusion to Rick Atkinson's acclaimed Liberation Trilogy about the Allied triumph in Europe during World War II It is the twentieth century's unrivaled epic: at a staggering price, the Un ited States and its allies liberated Europe and vanquished Hitler.

12 Bowden, Mark Black Hawk Down:: A Story of Modern War
Signet 2002 0451205146 / 9780451205148 Paperback Very Good 
Already a classic of war reporting and now reissued as a Grove Press paperb ack, Black Hawk Down is Mark Bowden's brilliant account of the longest sust ained firefight involving American troops since the Vietnam War. On October 3, 1993, about a hundred elite U.S. soldiers were dropped by helicopter in to the teeming market in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia. Their mission was to abduct two top lieutenants of a Somali warlord and return to base. It w as supposed to take an hour. Instead, they found themselves pinned down thr ough a long and terrible night fighting against thousands of heavily armed Somalis. The following morning, eighteen Americans were dead and more than seventy had been badly wounded. Drawing on interviews from both sides, army records, audiotapes, and videos (some of the material is still classified), Bowden's minute-by-minute narrative is one of the most exciting accounts of modern combat ever written-a riveting story that captures the heroism, courage, and brutality of battle.

Flags of Our Fathers, Bradley, James
14 Bradley, James Flags of Our Fathers
Bantam 2006 0553589342 / 9780553589344 Paperback Very Good 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: The Battle of Iwo Jima, fought in the winter of 1945 on a rocky island sout h of Japan, brought a ferocious slice of hell to earth: in a month's time, more than 22,000 Japanese soldiers would die defending a patch of ground a third the size of Manhattan, while nearly 26,000 Americans fell taking it f rom them. The battle was a turning point in the war in the Pacific, and it produced one of World War II's enduring images: a photograph of six soldier s raising an American flag on the flank of Mount Suribachi, the island's co mmanding high point. One of those young Americans was John Bradley, a Navy corpsman who a few da ys before had braved enemy mortar and machine-gun fire to administer first aid to a wounded Marine and then drag him to safety. For this act of herois m Bradley would receive the Navy Cross, an award second only to the Medal o f Honor. Bradley, who died in 1994, never mentioned his feat to his family. Only after his death did Bradley's son James begin to piece together the facts of his father's heroism, which was but one of countless acts of sacrifice made by the young men who fought at Iwo Jima. Flags of Our Fathers recounts the sometimes tragic life stories of the six men who raised the flag that February day--one an Arizona Indian who would die following an alcohol-soaked brawl, another a Kentucky hillbilly, still another a Pennsylvania steel-mill worker--and who became reluctant heroes in the bargain. A strongly felt and well-written entry in a spate of recent books on World War II, Flags gives a you-are-there depiction of that conflict's horrible arenas--and a

Lions of Kandahar: The Story of a Fight Against All Odds, Bradley, Rusty
16 Bradley, Rusty Lions of Kandahar: The Story of a Fight Against All Odds
Bantam 2011 0553807579 / 9780553807578 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
One of the most critical battles of the Afghan War is now revealed as never before. Lions of Kandahar is an inside account from the unique perspective of an active-duty U.S. Army Special Forces commander, an unparalled warrio r with multiple deployments to the theater who has only recently returned f rom combat there. Southern Afghanistan was slipping away. That was clear to then-Captain Rust y Bradley as he began his third tour of duty there in 2006. The Taliban and their allies were infiltrating everywhere, poised to reclaim Kandahar Prov ince, their strategically vital onetime capital. To stop them, the NATO coa lition launched Operation Medusa, the largest offensive in its history. The battlefield was the Panjwayi Valley, a densely packed warren of walled com pounds that doubled neatly as enemy bunkers, lush orchards, and towering ma rijuana stands, all laced with treacherous irrigation ditches. A mass exodu s of civilians heralded the carnage to come. Dispatched as a diversionary force in support of the main coalition attack, Bradley's Special Forces A-team and two others, along with their longtime Afghan Army allies, watched from across the valley as the NATO force was qu ickly engulfed in a vicious counterattack. Key to relieving it and calling in effective air strikes was possession of a modest patch of high ground ca lled Sperwan Ghar. Bradley's small detachment assaulted the hill and, in th e midst of a savage and unforgettable firefight, soon learned they were fac ing nearly a thousand seasoned fighters--from whom they seized an impossibl e victory. Now Bradley recounts the whole remarkable story as it actually happened.
