“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.

KHE SANH Siege In the Clouds Eric Hammel From critically acclaimed military historian Eric Hammel comes a vivid oral history account of the Tet 1968 siege of the Khe Sanh Combat Base. The words of American fighting men caught up in the grueling, deadly seventy-seven-day ordeal create a harrowing tapestry of tragedy and triumph. As two North Vietnamese Army divisions move to surround them, the vastly outnumbered U.S. Marines rush to strengthen their defenses at the isolated base and several nearby hilltop positions. The Communist forces repeatedly attack, are repeatedly repelled, and then dig in to take the American base by siege-the makings of a classic, modern "set-piece" strategy in which the defenders become bait to tie the attackers to fixed positions in which they can be pummeled and pulverized by American artillery and air support. Khe Sanh: Siege in the Clouds is a ground-breaking step forward in the oral history genre. This gripping-and moving-narrative flows from the masterfully woven threads provided by nearly a hundred men who gallantly endured the wrenching all-out struggle to hold the combat base and its vulnerable outlying positions.
