Rescue at Los Baños : the most daring prison camp raid of World War II by Bruce B Henderson( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The true story of one of the greatest military rescues of all time. In February 1945, as the U.S. victory in the Pacific drew nearer, the Japanese army grew desperate, and its soldiers guarding U.S. and Allied POWs more sadistic. Starved, shot and beaten, many of the 2,146 prisoners of the Los Baños prison camp in the Philippines--most of them American men, women and children--would not survive much longer. Deeply concerned about the half-starved and ill-treated prisoners, General Douglas MacArthur assigned to the 11th Airborne Division a dangerous rescue mission deep behind enemy lines. General Colin Powell has called the raid "a textbook operation for all ages and all armies." Combining personal interviews, diaries, correspondence, memoirs, and archival research, this book tells the story of a remarkable group of prisoners--whose courage and fortitude helped them overcome hardship, deprivation, and cruelty--and of the young American soldiers and Filipino guerrillas who risked their lives to save them.--From publisher description
True north : Peary, Cook, and the race to the Pole by Bruce B Henderson( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about one of the most enduring and vitriolic feuds in the history of exploration. "What a consummate cur he is, '" said Robert Peary of Frederick Cook in 1911. Cook responded, "Peary has stooped to every crime from rape to murder." They had started out as friends and shipmates, with Cook, a doctor, accompanying Peary, a civil engineer, on an expedition to northern Greenland in 1891. Peary's leg was shattered in an accident, and without Cook's care he might never have walked again. But by the summer of 1909, all the goodwill was gone. Peary said he had reached the Pole in September 1909; Cook scooped him, presenting evidence that he had gotten there in 1908. Bruce Henderson makes a wonderful narrative out of the claims and counterclaims, and he introduces fascinating scientific and psychological evidence to put the appalling details of polar travel in a new context
Taking back our streets : fighting crime in America by Willie L Williams( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking Back Our Streets is a chronicle of how Willie L. Williams, through commitment and a willingness to learn, climbed the ranks to be named the first black police chief in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. He reflects on that career, and speaks candidly about some of his most public and high-profile cases - including those of Heidi Fleiss and O.J. Simpson. Williams describes in detail community policing, how it has been effective, who participates, how it works, and where improvements can still be made. In the final chapter, he gives practical advice on what each citizen can do to work with the police in taking back our streets. In this book, readers will learn of the man behind the badge, a man whose character prepared him for a commitment to public service and a dedication to protecting the people of his community
Spy dust : two masters of disguise reveal the tools and operations that helped win the Cold War by Antonio J Mendez( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewed and released by the CIA, opening a window on the true-life world of espionage -- the elusive identities, the sophisticated gadgetry, the triple-think strategies -- Spy Dust reveals more about U.S. intelligence techniques abroad than any other published work of nonfiction. Moscow, 1988. The twilight of the Cold War. The KGB is at its most ruthless, and has now indisputably gained the upper hand over the CIA in the intelligence war. But no one knows how. Ten CIA agents and double-agents have gone missing in the last three years. They have either been executed or they are unaccounted for. At Langley, several theories circulate as to how the KGB seems suddenly to have become telepathic, predicting the CIA's every move. Some blame the defection of Edward Lee Howard three years before, and suspect that more high-placed moles will be unearthed. Others speculate that the KGB's surveillance successes have been heightened by the invention of an invisible electromagnetic powder that allows them to keep tabs on anyone who touches it: spy dust. CIA officers Tony Mendez and Jonna Goeser come together to head up a team of technical wizards and operational specialists, determined to solve the mystery that threatens to overshadow the Cold War's final act. Working against known and unknown hostile forces, as well as some unfriendly elements within the CIA, they devise controversial new operational methods and techniques to foil the KGB, and show the extraordinary lengths to which U.S. intelligence is willing to go to protect a source, then rescue him when his world starts to collapse. At the same time, Tony and Jonna find themselves falling deeply in love. During a fascinating odyssey that began in Indochina fifteen years before and ends in a breathtakingly daring operation in the heart of the Kremlin's Palace of Congresses, Spy Dust catapults the reader from the Hindu Kush to Hollywood, from Havana to Moscow, but cannot truly conclude until its protagonists are safely wedded in rural Maryland. At a time when the public has more questions than ever about the role of our intelligence services, and what is being done in America's name, Spy Dust both reassures us and gives us hope for the espionage battles of the future

Hero found : [the greatest POW escape of the Vietnam War] by Bruce B Henderson( Recording )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In February 1966, U.S. Navy pilot Dieter Dengler was shot down over "neutral Laos." He crashed deep in territory controlled by North Vietnamese army regulars and the communist Pathet Lao, who would eventually capture him and hold him prisoner in a fortified jungle prisoner-of-war camp. But German-born Dengler was no ordinary prisoner. Already a legend in the Navy for his escape and evasion skills---amply demonstrated during training in the California desert---he would initiate, plan, and lead an organized escape from the POW camp, becoming the longest-held American to escape captivity during the Vietnam War. Caught in a most desperate situation, imprisoned not only by the enemy but by the jungle itself, Dengler's heroic impulse was to not only get himself out but to free all the other POWs---Americans, Thai, and Chinese---some of whom had been held for years

The time traveller : one man's mission to make time travel a reality by Ronald L Mallett( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Ron Mallett was ten, his father died. Suffocating beneath the weight of his grief, young Ron picked up a copy of H. G. Wells' "The Time Machine" and was inspired to throw himself into a quest to find his own Holy Grail - a means to travel back in time and save his father from his untimely death. Remarkably, this working-class boy from the Bronx stuck with his vision, struggling with poverty and prejudice to become one of America's first black Ph.D.s in theoretical physics. Ronald Mallett discovered that circulating laser light could twist not just space (a phenomenon known as frame dragging) but also time, thus creating a time loop through which subatomic particles, information and perhaps one day even people might travel. "The Time Traveller" follows Ronald Mallett's extraordinary journey of self - and scientific discovery as he describes in simple language and elegant metaphor the physics that makes time travel possible. From Einstein's seminal work in relativity, to closed loops in time, to black holes and the birth of the universe, Ron Mallett lays out his theories and presents the reader with what is an actual blueprint for a time machine
