To bear any burden : the Vietnam War and its aftermath in the words of Americans and Southeast Asians by Al Santoli( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 1999 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forty-eight American and Asian witnesses who recount their stories in this book are survivors of a great cataclysm, the Vietnam War. The veterans, refugees, and officials who speak here come from widely divergent backgrounds yet combine to narrate a synchronous chronicle, a human-scale history of the war in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. Reading their narratives, we hear them reliving crucial moments in the preparation, execution, and aftermath of war. We hear POW Dan Pitzer learning of the American buildup from his bamboo cage; Viet Cong operative Nguyen Tuong Lai describing a terrorist run into Saigon; Cambodian teacher Kassie Neou charming his executioners with fairy tales learned from the BBC. Their experiences in extreme circumstances of war, revolution, and imprisonment provide an epic drama of heroism in the midst of tragedy. This book gives not only riveting eyewitness accounts of the war, but reclaims from this tragic continuum larger patterns of courage and dedication. -- from Book Jacket

Commander Timothy Holden served on a frigate off the coast of Vietnam, then trained to become one of the elite Navy SEALs. His command of coastal special operations missions involving Navy SEALs in the Gulf War was crucial to the Allies' success

Unrestricted warfare : China's master plan to destroy America by Liang Qiao( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated from the Original Chinese Documents Publisher Provided Annotation. As incredible as it may be to believe, three years before the September 11 bombing of the World Trade Center-a Chinese military manual called Unrestricted Warfare touted such an attack-suggesting it would be difficult for the U.S. military to cope with. Now NewsMax.com is making the CIA translation of this shocking book available to all Americans. In reading China's military manual Unrestricted Warfare, you will learn that the events of September ll were not a random act perpetrated by independent agents. Instead, Chinese military planners believe that terrorism is just one of the many tools at the hands of nations and their terrorists allies to wage total war against the United States. The doctrine of total war outlined in Unrestricted Warfare clearly demonstrates that the People's Republic of China is preparing to confront the United States and our allies by conducting "asymmetrical" or multidimensional attack on almost every aspect of our social, economic and political life
