1 Adair, Paul HITLER'S GREATEST DEFEAT: THE COLLAPSE OF ARMY GROUP CENTRE, JUNE 1944 (CAS SELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS)
Cassell 2007 030435449X / 9780304354498 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "...provides more than ample strategic and operational detail and context about the operation...The human view of combat...is most revealing and significant."--Journal of Slavic Military Studies. It was a battle worse than the one at Stalingrad, and World War Two's turning point, thanks to Hitler's strategic miscalculations. Succinct and groundbreaking, this analysis of the largely ignored, bloody conflict in Byelorussia reveals how the Nazis lost the Eastern Front. Their defeat cost 350,000 casualities--and left the war effort doomed and broken.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "A tale drenched in drama and blood, heroism and cowardice, loyalty and bet rayal."--Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post The Red Army had much to avenge when it finally reached the frontiers of th e Third Reich in January 1945. Frenzied by their terrible experiences with Wehrmacht and SS brutality, they wreaked havoc--tanks crushing refugee colu mns, mass rape, pillage, and unimaginable destruction. Hundreds of thousand s of women are children froze to death or were massacred; more than seven m illion fled westward from the fury of the Red Army. It was the most terrify ing example of fire and sword ever known. Antony Beevor, renowned author of D-Day and The Battle of Arnhem, has reconstructed the experiences of those millions caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich's final collapse. The Fall of Berlin is a terrible story of pride, stupidity, fanaticism, revenge, and savagery, yet it is also one of astonishing endurance, self-sacrifice, and survival against all odds.

BLACK HAWK DOWN:: A STORY OF MODERN WAR, Bowden, Mark
14 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
16 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.
