An international bestseller, this is a German soldier's first-hand account of life on Russian front during the second half of the Second World War. When Guy Sajer joins the infantry full of ideals in the summer of 1942, the German army is enjoying unparalleled success in Russia. However, he quickly finds that for the foot soldier the glory of military success hides a much harsher reality of hunger, fatigue and constant deprivation. Posted to the crack Grosse Deutschland division, with its sadistic instructors who shoot down those who fail to make the grade, he enters a violent and remorseless world where all youthful hope is gradually ground down, and all that matters is the brute will to survive. As the biting cold of the Russian winter sets in, and the tide begins to turn against the Germans, life becomes an endless round of pounding artillery attacks and vicious combat against a relentless and merciless Red Army. A book of stunning force, this is an unforgettable reminder of the horrors of war.

Ein Welterfolg (1967), neu im Helios-Verlag verlegt, das in mehr als dreißig Sprachen übersetzt und über drei Millionen Mal verkauft wurde. "Ich werde versuchen den Abgrund der menschlichen Perversion angemessen zu beschreiben und das zum Ausdruck zu bringen, was ich mir niemals hätte vorstellen können, was mir unmöglich erschienen wäre, hätte ich es nicht erlebt ..." Geboren im Elsass als Sohn eines französischen Vaters und einer deutschen Mutter, war Sajer siebzehn Jahre alt, als er 1942 in den Mahlstrom des Zweiten Weltkrieges gezogen wurde. Er hat früher als andere die Sprache wiedergefunden und ein bis heute einzigartig fesselndes Dokument hinterlassen, das dem Grauen des Krieges und der Hilflosigkeit, mit welcher der einzelne Soldat seiner alles überrollenden Walze gegenübersteht, so nahe kommt wie es die einfache Aneinanderreihung von Worten nur zulässt. Scheint dem jungen Sajer zu Beginn alles noch wie ein großes Abenteuer, so holt ihn Hunger, Kälte, Angst und die entfesselte Gewalt des Krieges in Kursk, Charkow und Bjelgorod bald auf den Boden der Tatsachen zurück. Doch dieser Krieg hat ihn schon ganz vereinnahmt und es gibt kein Zurück mehr. Das Blatt im Osten beginnt sich zu wenden, und die deutschen Soldaten in Russland treten einen zähen, harten und grausam umkämpften Rückzug an, der ihn über Rumänien und Polen bis nach Memel an der Ostsee führt, wo er das blutige Inferno des Untergangs erlebt. Am Ende bleibt das zutiefst Menschliche des großen Leids als etwas zurück, das größer und nachhallender ist als die Dokumentation der Zeit und des Krieges. Sajer bringt das aus seiner Erinnerung ans Licht, und wir wollen und können nicht wissen, welche unendliche Mühe ihn das gekostet haben mag. "Das Buch verdichtet Raum und Zeit zu einem einzigen pochenden Schmerz" (Time Magazine) "Niemand, der das Buch zu Ende liest, wird es je wieder vergessen" (New York Times) "Eine epische Geschichte, großartig erzählt." (Wall Street Journal)

In this heart-stopping thriller from New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor, Pike Logan returns with his most dangerous and personal threat yet: a Taskforce Operator gone rogue. For years, the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce has worked in the shadows, anticipating and preventing attacks around the globe. Created to deal with a terrorist threat that shuns the civilized rule of law, it abandoned the same, operating outside of the US Constitution. Though wildly successful, it was rooted in a fear that the cure could be worse than the disease. And now that fear has come home. A Special Forces soldier is killed on an operation in Afghanistan, and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the US administration wants to forget the casualty, one Taskforce member will not. When he sets out to avenge his brother's death, his actions threaten to not only expose the Taskforce's activities but also destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil. Pike Logan understands the desire but also the danger. Brought in to eliminate the risk, he's now forced to choose between his friend and the administration he's sworn to protect, while unbeknownst to either of them, the soldier's death is only the beginning...

The Vietnam War put a once-proud nation in turmoil. During the height of the conflict, the antiwar movement caused civil unrest in America. Young men evaded the draft by fleeing to Canada, claiming conscientious objector status, homosexuality, or marriage with child. But author Rick R. Garcia, the only son born to Hispanic parents, got caught up in the 1969 lottery draft. Pop Smoke, Birds Inbound chronicles Garcia’s story as he was shipped far away to “the land of Hush-a-bye” to fight in the most controversial war in which the United States ever participated. He was inducted into the US Army on August 20, 1970, and after the completion of eight weeks of intense advance infantry training, he was issued orders to report to Oakland Army Base, gateway to Southeast Asia. Eventually, Garcia was assigned to Blackfoot Platoon, Company Bravo, Second Battalion, Eighth Regiment, First Cavalry Division. Pop Smoke, Birds Inbound narrates a factual account of one soldier’s triumphs and failures between firefights—a story of survival, from living to loving. It presents a unique glimpse into the life of a grunt, from combat to drugs to sexual exploits, along with incisive portraits of those individuals who fought in a war the United States would never win.

This is a story of Carroll A. Durham becoming a soldier as an African American during the Vietnam War. It is a story that has never been told. Carroll was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder in 1993. He is a poster child for getting the word out about what it was like for 300,000 veteran casualties who served out of 2, 500,000 troops that served in Vietnam. There are very few books in the market about the African American soldier. This story tells of the trials and tribulations of black male youth growing up during the Civil Rights Movement in the new integrated army. The story is also similar to the 30,000 casualties of the Iraq war who suffer just like the Vietnam veteran along with their families. Carroll dreamed of being a soldier growing up in his father’s footsteps by him being a person in uniform during World War II. Carroll wanted to know what it was like being a soldier in the Vietnam War. He wants this story to get out to the families of the Vietnam Era so they can see what their patriots went through during this period in our American history.
