The unimaginable has happened: the world has been plunged into all-out nuclear war. Sailing near the Arctic Circle, the USS Nathan James is relatively unscathed, but the future is grim and Captain Thomas is facing mutiny from the tattered remnants of his crew. With civilization in ruins, he urges those that remain--152 men and 26 women--to pull together in search of land. Once they reach safety, however, the men and women on board realize that they are the earth's last remaining survivors--and they've all been exposed to radiation. When none of the women seems able to conceive, fear sets in. Will this be the end of humankind?

Back to the future : the British southern campaign, 1780-1781 by William Brinkley( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph analyzes the British campaign in the Carolinas during the War for Independence from December 1779 through March 1781. The monograph also examines British use of force and the ramifications of the use of force against the southern people and the southern Continental Army. Finally it investigates British attempts to control and mitigate the unconventional threat posed by American partisans and the British attempts to restore civil order and control. The British campaign's complex environment displays marked similarities with several U.S. Army operations conducted since 1990, particularly operations in Panama, Haiti, Northern Iraq and Somalia. As the United States conducts more complex operations, the British campaign in the Carolinas can provide perspectives for today's U.S. Army campaign planner. Current U.S. policy and Army doctrine provide a framework for planning and executing civil-military operations and understanding this complex environment is crucial to their successful execution. Given the complex nature of military operations in the late 20th Century, ignorance of the environment could potentially lead to a future American military disaster. The British achieved several stunning military successes in the southern campaign, but their inability to stop the civil war and reestablish a functioning government for the people of the South proved their ultimate undoing. For these reasons, the British experience in the Carolinas from 1780-81 provides a useful case-study of complicated and complex military operations." -- Abstract
Proposed Force XXI engineer designs : viable combat multipliers? by William Brinkley( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph analyzes the ability of two proposed engineer organizations to adequately support the future Force XXI Division. Examinations of four historical case studies determine engineer support requirements for division operations. The U.S. Army's participation in Vietnam and Bosnia define engineer support analysis criteria for stability operations. Combat engineer support in World War II and the Persian Gulf define analysis criteria for major theater war. The key criteria are tactical bridging capability, breaching and countermine capability, combat construction capability, and engineer command and control capability. The monograph deems both proposed engineer designs inadequate to support the Force XXI division. Design One has inadequate amounts of tactical bridging and an insufficient number of engineer company headquarters to adequately conduct countermine/breaching missions. However, Design One's division-level headquarters is flexible and rapidly expandable, and should easily integrate additional engineer forces. Design One can plan and execute major division river crossings. With the addition of one additional corps combat engineer battalion, Design One will provide adequate divisional support. Design two will adequately support brigade operations but lacks division-level flexibility. The lack of a divisional engineer headquarters will preclude adequate integration of additional engineer forces without engineer headquarters augmentation. Design Two cannot adequately plan and execute division-level engineer mission such as major river crossings without significant augmentation." -- Abstract
