6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Was Benjamin Franklin a British spy? This is the startling but all too legitimate question investigated in this complete reappraisal of one of America's most illustrious founding fathers. Franklin has traditionally been portrayed as a dedicated servant of the United States during the turbulent years of the nation's birth. Now in Code Number 72 / Ben Franklin: Patriot or Spy?, author-historian Cecil B. Currey has brought to life an entirely different story."--Book Jacket

Follow me and die : the destruction of an American division in World War II by Cecil B Currey( Book )

"In November 1944, the 28th Infantry Division, under inept commanders, was ordered to attack the Germans in the H?rtgen Forest near the Siegfried Line. Resistance was fierce. The American infantrymen, though courageous, were demoralized by cold, hunger, exhaustion, and fear. They broke and ran. Ten percent losses would have been considered unacceptable high, but American casualties climbed to seventy-five percent. Now, from access to recently declassified documents and with first-hand testimony from both German and American survivors, the virtual destruction of an American division in one of World War II's most costly and useless attacks is revealed in detail to the general public for the first time"--Jacket

"In 1968, these tensions erupted when most of its African-American prisoners took over the prison compound. The riot, which had to be put down by armed American troops using tear gas, was noted around the world as another sign of the sagging morale of U.S. forces. Noted military historian Cecil Barr Currey tells the story of Long Binh jail through the words of dozens of former guards, prisoners, and administrators. They reveal a disturbing aspect of the Vietnam War that has not been examined until now."--Jacket

Chiến thắng bằng mọi giá : thiên tài quân sự Việt Nam : đại tướng Võ Nguyên Giáp by Cecil B Currey( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Vietnamese and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North Viet Nam's Senior General Vo Nguyen Giap ranks among the greatest of military geniuses. Giap began preparing for his wars hiding in a cave with Viet Nam's future leader, Ho Chi Minh. Giap had no troops, no equipment, no formal military education or training. Through sheer determination, he forged a military during World War II that helped defeat the Japanese. He then drove the French out of Viet Nam, crushing them in 1954 at Dien Bien Phu. Twenty-one years later, the United States lost its first war when Saigon fell. Until now, reports of Giap's life story have been a patchwork of erroneous information and larger-than-life legends. Even his date of birth has been misreported. This the a thoroughly documented and complete biography of Giap from his birth through his schooling; his exile in China; his complex relationships with the French, Ho Chi Minh, and the Communist Party; his early role as journalist and propagandist; his development of a victorious peasant army; and his genius at defeating superior forces. It also tells the full story of his mistakes and his ruthless commitment of Vietnamese lives and resources. His genius lay in his ability to learn, to modify his tactics, and to motivate a whole nation to fight to the death and sacrifice everything for victory
