Dirty little secrets of the Vietnam War by James F Dunnigan( Book )

Essentially a compendium of unknown facts, hidden details, and revealing statistics, Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War allows us to see what really happened to American foes in Southeast Asia, separating popular myth from explosive reality in a clear concise manner.

The Alamo and the Texas War of Independence, September 30, 1835 to April 21, 1836 : heroes, myths, and history by Albert A Nofi( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a small war as such things go, probably no more than 2,500 men were ever engaged in a single action, both sides taken together. It was a short war too, lasting only about seven months. And it was certainly fought in what was at the time one of the most obscure corners of the world. Yet for all that, the Texas War for Independence was a heroic struggle of legendary character. Historian Albert A. Nofi chronicles the epic struggle of the Texas War for Independence in one of the most balanced accounts of the fight available. He carefully explores the many legends of the battles between the Texans and the Mexicans and exposes the truth behind the myths. The Alamo offers a strategic and tactical analysis of the war as well as technical information. Sidebars detail the weapons used by both sides, strength and casualty data of the numerous battles, orders of battle, the financing of Texan freedom and a study of a little known war at sea during the revolution. Also included are maps of military movements and the most detailed tactical map of the Battle of San Jacinto available to date. Nofi's work is an excellent merging of the social, political, economic and military history of this important episode in American history

The story begins with the grand cavalry battles and skirmishes that marked the beginning of Lee's epic invasion of the North. The author follows the pattern of events that led both armies to the crossroads town of Gettysburg where the terrible whirlwind of battle intensified. The awful second day of the fight is presented in grim detail with a complete accounting of savage thrust and counterthrust. The book investigates the planning that led to the panoramic charge of General Pickett's command which ended in disaster. Finally there is the grim march from the battlefield as the Confederates retreated to Virginia timidly pursued by the victorious Federals.
