“Get whitey!” they chanted marching toward their Redwoods campsite in the dimming light of dusk, wielding clubs and rocks. They were Troop 1135, mostly African-American inner city Boy Scouts. Whitey was their scoutmaster. Was this for real? It sure looked like it. In 1968, just three years after the Watts Riot, 21-year-old UCLA student Steve Hauser started Troop 1135 in the heart of the riot area of South Central Los Angeles. What began as a ragtag mix of boys with a penchant for disruptive antics and racial distrust, evolved into a cohesive Boy Scout troop – a vehicle for fun and character development. Baddest Troop Alive is the story of inner city Boy Scouts and their young naïve white scoutmaster. Former scouts’ share thoughts about their experiences and what they did with what they learned when they grew up. It is a personal story of growth, both in the boys and in their white leader, within the larger story of the civil rights movement.

"In Vietnam, the newsman is reporting a strange, baffling, frontless war—and an even stranger, more baffling, faceless political scene" writes M. Sivaram. In a factual, objective, straight-from-the-shoulder report he analyzes one of the most frustrating wars in history—and answers the question "Why?" The author, an Indian journalist who has covered such world trouble-spots as Korea, Suez, Malaya, and Laos, found Vietnam his most challenging assignment since the war. He describes the rise to power of North Vietnam's Ho Chih Minh—the most important, yet least known, war leader. He sketches the history of Vietnam from its earliest days, through its years as a French colony to today. He traces the history of the Diem family, its period of almost unlimited power, and its sudden fall. He takes his readers through the bewildering maze of coups and counter-coups which have devilled the government of South Vietnam and he shows the country-people of South Vietnam living in the constant shadow of war and death. This report on Vietnam is a clear, balanced and vivid picture of a country at war with itself, and of two rival ideologies—capitalism and communism—fighting for control in a struggle that could well decide the future of all Asia.

In BERLIN NOIR, Philip Kerr’s first three Bernie Gunther novels – MARCH VIOLETS, THE PALE CRIMINAL, A GERMAN REQUIEM -- are compiled in one volume, the perfect introduction to the “best crime series around today” (The Daily Beast). Ex-policeman Bernie Gunther thought he'd seen everything on the streets of 1930s Berlin. But then he went freelance, and each case he tackled sucked him further into the grisly excesses of Nazi subculture. And even after the war, amidst the decayed, imperial splendour of Vienna, Bernie uncovered a legacy that made the wartime atrocities look lily-white in comparison...

The story of America's elite military unit told by one of its founding members They are the U.S. Army's most élite top secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won't hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions; and no book has ever taken readers inside-until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action-to reveal the never-before-told story of 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force). INSIDE DELTA FORCE In this dramatic behind-the-scenes chronicle, Eric Haney, one of the founding members of Delta Force, takes us inside this legendary unit from the beginning. Here, for the first time, are details of the grueling selection process, designed to break the strongest of men, that singles out the perfect soldier, and then the years of training that turns him into the ultimate modern warrior that is the Delta Force Operator. From fighting guerrilla warfare in Honduras to close VIP protection in Beirut, from rescuing missionaries in Sudan to the abortive attempt to extract American hostages from Tehran, and leading the way onto the island of Grenada, Eric Haney captures the daring and discipline that distinguish the men of Delta Force. Inside Delta Force puts the reader right at the heart of the action and gives a breathtaking glimpse of a life that is as driven, inspiring and terrifying as they come. Eric L. Haney, Command Sergeant Major, USA (Ret.), served for more than twenty years in the United States Army's most demanding combat units: as a combat infantryman, a Ranger, and ultimately as a founding member of Delta Force. In his retirement, Haney has protected princes, presidents and CEOs alike.

On a clear night in late June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in northern Afghanistan for the mountainous Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader known to be ensconced in a Taliban stronghold surrounded by a small but heavily armed force. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive. This is the story of fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle in the mountains that led, ultimately, to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. But it is also, more than anything, the story of his teammates, who fought ferociously beside him until he was the last one left-blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and still breathing. Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the encircling Taliban killers. A six-foot-five-inch Texan, Leading Petty Officer Luttrell takes us, blow-by-blow, through the brutal training of America's warrior elite and the relentless rites of passage required by the Navy SEALs. He transports us to a monstrous battle fought in the desolate peaks of Afghanistan, where the beleaguered American team plummeted headlong a thousand feet down a mountain as they fought back through flying shale and rocks. In this rich , moving chronicle of courage, honor, and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-and a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
