Partners in command : George Marshall and Dwight Eisenhower in war and peace by Mark Perry( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portrait of an often ignored alliance between two iconic military figures and the ways in which their unusual collaboration would ultimately shape fifty years of successful American foreign policy. Historian-journalist Perry follows Marshall and Eisenhower's collaboration from the major battles in North Africa and Italy to the planning and execution of the D-Day invasion, the crisis of the Battle of the Bulge, the postwar implementation of the Marshall Plan, and the establishment of Eisenhower's leadership of NATO. Perry shows that Marshall and Eisenhower were remarkably close colleagues who brilliantly combined strengths and offset each other's weaknesses in their strategic planning, on the battlefields, and in their mutual struggle to overcome the bungling, political sniping, and careerism of British and American commanders that infected nearly every battle and campaign. Finally, Marshall and Eisenhower collaborated in crafting the foreign policy and military infrastructure that became the foundation for winning the Cold War.--From publisher description

The most dangerous man in America : the making of Douglas MacArthur by Mark Perry( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperious, headstrong, and vain, MacArthur matched an undeniable military genius with a massive ego and a rebellious streak that often seemed to destine him for the dustbin of history. Yet despite his flaws, MacArthur is remembered as a brilliant commander whose combined-arms operation in the Pacific-- the first in the history of warfare-- secured America's triumph in World War II and changed the course of history. Perry examines how this paradox of a man overcame personal and professional challenges to lead his countrymen in their darkest hour

A fire in Zion : the Israeli-Palestinian search for peace by Mark Perry( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A noted American journalist with unprecedented access to the major American, Israeli, and Palestinian players recounts the dramatic Middle East peace process, from 1988 until today. The historic handshake on the White House lawn on September 13, 1993, marked the most significant step toward resolving the bloody, forty-year war between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples. The ceremonial reconciliation between a solemn Yasser Arafat and a reluctant Yitzhak Rabin was the result of a long and arduous process that had its roots in years of tentative contacts between the two sides. From Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to Madrid and Oslo, A Fire in Zion tells the startling story of the Israeli-Palestinian search for peace - and the searing and often tragic events that led to the peace agreement. In A Fire in Zion, Washington-based journalist Mark Perry captures for the first time the complete history of the Israeli-Palestinian accord. Spanning the period from December 1987 to the signing of the final accord on the White House lawn, the author sketches vivid portraits of the most important political and diplomatic figures of our time and the people who made peace possible: PLO chief Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, former Secretary of State James Baker, and a host of others. In each case the author was given extraordinary access to the decision-makers who brought the two antagonists to the peace table. A Fire in Zion begins where From Beirut to Jerusalem left off - revealing in timely, riveting detail how the Middle East conflict is now slowly being resolved. The author provides an incisive commentary on the divisions between American and Israeli Jews, the conflict inside the PLO, the struggle for peace inside the Israeli government, and the often vicious fights in both the Bush and Clinton administrations over just what a Middle East peace should look like. A Fire in Zion is much more than a dramatic recounting of international intrigue; it is also a saga of two very different peoples, and two dreams. Here are the often unheard voices of individual Palestinian and Israeli men, women, and children, who, in their desperate search for peace, find themselves caught in a deadly and seemingly endless conflict. This book takes the reader on a journey from Jericho in the occupied territories to Jericho, New York, from the fetid refugee camps of the Gaza Strip to the stony steps of Bethlehem, from PLO headquarters in Tunis to the halls of the Knesset

Army medical support for peace operations and humanitarian assistance by Rand Corporation( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States contends with the strategic uncertainty in the post-Cold War era, it must consider the role of its military forces in operations other than war (OOTW), such as peacekeeping, peace enforcement, or humanitarian assistance. In these operations, medical issues tend to play a more central role than in combat operations and the medical support requirements tend to be broader, particularly if a multinational force is involved. Hence, OOTW may place greater and new demands on the Army Medical Department (AMEDD)
