Iraq war by Rodney P Carlisle( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a dramatic three-week campaign beginning March 20, 2003, U.S. and British forces (with several other countries in a coalition) destroyed the Iraqi army, defeating Saddam Hussein's regime. Over the next few months, former regime members, along with some armed anti-american forces from outside Iraq, started a long and bitter armed resistance. Although the war itself had been conducted with fewer than 120 Americans killed in action, deaths following May 1 among occupying U.S. troops exceeded that number by fall 2003. Iraq War covers all the background material necessary to understand the circumstances surrounding this particular military undertaking. It explains how, in a dramatic three-week campaign, American and British forces (together with nominal support from several other countries in a coalition) destroyed the Iraqi army and defeated the regime of Saddam Hussein. The compelling narrative describes such later events as the capture of Saddam Hussein by U.S. forces while also addressing the aftermath of the military campaign and the continuing unrest in the country. An important and timely resource for middle and high school readers, Iraq War explores the history of the region as well as the recent events leading up to and culminating in this war

North American exploration by Michael Golay( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"North American Exploration distills a centuries-long saga of discovery into a single, authoritative, highly readable reference. Its lively accounts are arranged in seven sections, each covering a major area of exploration: North America before Columbus: the Spanish open up the New World; the Atlantic seaboard; west of the Mississippi; across the North American continent; and the Arctic and northern-most regions." "Narratives entries recreate the major expeditions and discoveries of each era, provide character sketches of major explorers, and present contemporary descriptions of Native nations, geographical features, and settlements that played a role in exploration. You'll meet such major figures as Lewis and Clark, Hernan Cortes, Henry Hudson, and Columbus himself. You'll also encounter scores of fascinating lesser-known explorers, including Alvar Cabeza de Vaca, who trekked 2,500 miles across Texas and Mexico without a map or even a plan, and Marguerite de la Roque, who survived being stranded on a remote Canadian island for two years." "Supplemented with historical maps, photos, and illustrations, along with powerful first-person accounts from contemporary diaries, letters, reports, and newspapers, North American Exploration is completely up to date in both content and historical approach. This comprehensive, one-stop resource offers rich and rewarding reading for anyone who is fascinated by the relentless human urge to explore the unknown."--Jacket
