Summary

Three real-life accounts of the struggles of American soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan battlefields to, in two cases, US military tribunals.  Legion Rising: Surviving Combat and the Scars It Left Behind by Jeff Morris   Follow Jeff through up-close, fast-paced accounts of the thrills and dangers of combat as a Platoon Leader in Iraq. Feel the weight of the gruesome and tragic loss of eight men whose lives were taken in the line of duty. Journey through his battle to face the scars and shadows that followed him long after his time serving in the military was over.  Travesty of Justice: The Shocking Prosecution of Lt. Clint Lorance by Don BrownThe Book That Won a Presidential Pardon!   On July 2, 2012, three Afghan males crowded on a motorcycle and sped down a Taliban-controlled dirt road toward Lt. Clint Lorance’s men. In a split-second decision, Lorance ordered his men to fire. When no weapons were found on the Afghan bodies, the Army prosecuted Lorance for murder.   “The most powerful case to date for the exoneration of imprisoned Army Lt. Clint Lorance.” —Sun-Sentinel  Saving Sandoval by Craig W. Drummond   While deployed in Iraq, Sandoval, an airborne infantryman and elite sniper, was instructed to “take the shot” and kill an enemy insurgent wearing civilian clothes. Two weeks later, Army Criminal Investigation Command descended upon Sandoval’s unit, trying to link Sandoval and others to war crimes, including murder.   “A revealing, real-life courtroom drama, reminiscent of A Few Good Men.” —Hunter R. Clark, International Law and Human Rights Program and Drake University Law School

    The name of E. M. Bounds is familiar to anyone who has an interest in prayer. In a world awash in books that jam the isles of bookstores everywhere, few will even begin to survive the lifetime of the authors, but that is not true of E. M. Bounds. After a century, many of his books are still in print. Their long life is a testimony to the timelessness of the prayer lessons he learned from his own deep Christian spirituality. In view of the popularity of E. M. Bounds writings, it seems incredible that so little about him has been published. To remedy that amazing state of affairs, Lyle W. Dorsett has read every scrap of paper related to Bounds, and the family has made available for the first time a private collection of the Bounds correspondence. From that, Dorsett wrote this account of Bounds' life.An EChristian, Inc production.

    She has to be OK, I pleaded silently to myself. She has to be. 
    ‘We’ve alerted the RNLI and they’re sending a lifeboat out.’  
    ‘The RNLI?’ I said, surprised. ‘They do that?’  
    Saved from the Waves is a heart-warming collection of first-hand accounts from RNLI volunteers of the myriad dangers they face during each mission to save beloved pets, wildlife and livestock.  
    This remarkable book shines a light on the bravery of the volunteers, and the necessity of these rescues – not only to save animals at risk of drowning, but to prevent people putting themselves in danger when trying to save a cherished furry friend. 
    Each mission requires courage, determination and an unrelenting commitment to helping those in danger. Each day brings a new challenge for the extraordinary volunteer crews who are the lifeblood of the RNLI. 
    In Saved from the Waves, the RNLI presents a compelling biography of their volunteers, their top-notch emergency services, and their unwavering commitment to survival and welfare. This nonfiction piece is a testament to their courage in the face of the most challenging nautical situations. 
    For fans of Jerry Grayson (Rescue Pilot), Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton (The Gender Bias), Adrian Bleese (Above the Law), John Allen (Cairngorm John), and Jonathan Franklin (438 giorni).

    "Borcke's book is one that no student of Confederate history will forget."—Douglas Southall Freeman.
    Memoirs of the Confederate War for Independence is one of the best account of the American Civil War written from the Confederate point of view. The book was written by Heros Von Borcke, a Prussian cavalry officer, who served in service in the cavalry of the army of Northern Virginia. The Memoirs follow his service that begun in the spring of 1862. He was a direct witness and a participant of many great battles of the American Civil War (Seven Pines, the Seven Days, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Brandy Station). Borcke's participation in the war ended in the early part of the Gettysburg campaign, when he was wounded.

    “A fresh and fast-paced study of one of the most important crimes of the twentieth century” (The Washington Post), The Brother now discloses new information revealed since the original publication in 2003—including an admission by his sons that Julius Rosenberg was indeed a Soviet spy and a confession to the author by the Rosenbergs’ co-defendant.Sixty years after their execution in June 1953 for conspiring to steal atomic secrets, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg remain the subjects of great emotional debate and acrimony. The man whose testimony almost single-handedly convicted them was Ethel Rosenberg’s own brother, David Greenglass. Though the Rosenbergs were executed, Greenglass served a mere ten years in prison, after which, with a new name, he disappeared. But journalist Sam Roberts found Greenglass, and then managed to convince him to talk about everything that had happened.Since the original publication of The Brother, Roberts sued to release grand jury testimony, which further implicates Greenglass and demonstrates how the prosecution was tainted. One of the defendants, Morton Sobell, admitted to Roberts that he and Julius Rosenberg were spies. Furthermore, Michael and Robert Meeropol, the Rosenbergs’ sons, acknowledged to Roberts that although their mother was not legally culpable, that the “secret” to the atomic bomb was not compromised, and that the death penalty was excessive, their father was, in fact, guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union.Now released with this important new information, The Brother is more than ever, “A gripping account of the most famous espionage case in US history…an excellent book, written with flair and alive with the agony of the age” (The Wall Street Journal).
