Now with a forward by Sean Hannity, this powerful story of brotherhood, bravery, and patriotism exposes the true stories behind some of the Army's darkest secrets. The Army does not want you to read this book. It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes U.S. soldiers and Marines while setting free spies who kill Americans. This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men. Hill, a West Point grad and decorated combat veteran, was a rising young officer who had always followed the letter of the military law. In 2007, Hill got his dream job: infantry commander in the storied 101st Airborne. His new unit, Dog Company, 1-506th, had just returned stateside from the hell of Ramadi. The men were brilliant in combat but unpolished at home, where paperwork and inspections filled their days. With tough love, Hill and his First Sergeant, an old-school former drill instructor named Tommy Scott, turned the company into the top performers in the battalion. Hill and Scott then led Dog Company into combat in Afghanistan, where a third of their men became battlefield casualties after just six months. Meanwhile, Hill found himself at war with his own battalion commander, a charismatic but difficult man who threatened to relieve Hill at every turn. After two of his men died on a routine patrol, Hill and a counterintelligence team busted a dozen enemy infiltrators on their base in the violent province of Wardak. Abandoned by his high command, Hill suddenly faced an excruciating choice: follow Army rules the way he always had, or damn the rules to his own destruction and protect the men he'd grown to love.

When U.S. troops withdrew from Vietnam, they left behind thousands of young children fathered by American soldiers. The new regime regarded the Amerasians as children of the enemy and ostracized them from Vietnamese society. The U.S. government passed the Homecoming Act of 1988, finally facilitating immigration of Amerasians to the United States. Now young adults, most who have emigrated have faced difficulty adjusting to a new culture and only about 2 percent have been reunited with their fathers. Revealing and often poignant, the 38 interviews here give voice to the struggle that Amerasians and their mothers faced in their homeland.

In the Ruins of Warsaw Streets

In the Ruins of Warsaw Streets

This is a story of history, tragedy, and heroism that will captivate and move readers of all ages. The author, born in Puitusk (some fifty kilometres from Warsaw), skilfully and honestly tells of the painful dramas in which he was involved in his youth in Poland during World War II. The true story unfolds of two young Jewish men who took Aryan identities, at the time of the Polish uprising and when Warsaw had been abandoned. Severin Gabriel, who was in hiding in Warsaw, and who survived with the aid of his brother and of Lady Wanda and other Polish friends, casts a personal light on his life-shattering experiences, which are at once unique and also reminiscent of so many war stories. With poignancy an intimacy, he re-enacts his fears and nightmares and those of his comrades in the city besieged by German occupying forces. In this diary-memoir, the authors fight to survive during the Polish uprising in the early autumn of 1944, the deportation of the Polish residents of Warsaw at the beginning of October 1944, and events leading up to their return to the ruined city, are given special attention. Little has been written about the period encompassing the deportation and return, and therefore In the Ruins of Warsaw Streets, based on the authors authentic diary, is of historical value beyond its private significance. In the Ruins of Warsaw Streets was awarded first prize by the Polish-Canadian Publishing Fund (Toronto, 1991) in an international competition for the documentation of World War II experiences. The book was originally written in Polish and published in Poland in 1996, under the title W Ruinach Warszawy. In 1994 it was published in Hebrew in Israel. The authors personal diary has remained in his possession as a memento.
