"ONE OF THE BEST VIETNAM WAR STORIES I'VE EVER READ, one damn good, compelling read. It's almost something out of a Clancy novel, yet it's true. The best thing I can say about it is I didn't want it to end." --Col. David Hackworth, New York Times bestselling author of About Face By the spring of 1970, American troops were ordered to pull out of Vietnam. The Marines of 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel "Wild Bill" Drumright, were assigned to cover the withdrawal of 1st Marine Division. The Marines of 1st RECON Bn operated in teams of six or seven men. Heavily armed, the teams fought a multitude of bitter engagements with a numerically superior and increasingly aggressive enemy. Michael C. Hodgins served in Company C, 1st RECON Bn (Rein), as a platoon leader. In powerful, graphic prose, he chronicles his experience as a patrol leader in myriad combat situations--from hasty ambush to emergency extraction to prisoner snatch to combined-arms ambush. . . .

A gripping novel that gives readers a rare glimpse into Colombia’s notorious drug wars, told by someone who knows the landscape intimately. When Luzma’s brother Jair unwittingly uncovers the plan by Colombia’s most notorious drug cartel to smuggle an unprecedented cocaine shipment into the US, it puts their family in grave danger. Jair’s kidnapping by the cartel forces Luzma to go face to face with vicious paramilitary leader, El Cubano, and General Ordonez, ruthless head of the military - men who will stop at nothing to protect their empires. But for Luzma, nothing is more important than saving her family - not even her own life. Kelly Brooke Nicholls worked in human rights in Colombia for a number of years. Although the story and characters in A Reluctant Warrior are fictitious, they are based on events she witnessed first hand and her interviews with thousands of victims of paramilitaries, guerrillas and drug cartels. She wrote this book to celebrate and support the brave people in Colombia who risk their lives to protect and make a difference to others.

Throughout history there have been recorded incidents of angels visiting earth. The Archangel Gabriel is credited with the most interactions with mortals. He is written about by diverse numbers of religions and cultures throughout the ages, and his identity is unmistakable. Gabriel is The Reluctant Warrior. He is reflective, reserved and sensitive and is heaven’s leading musician and musical director. Gabriel would prefer to spend his existence leading the choirs of angels in song and celestial music. However, he must respond to the call of duty out of loyalty and obedience to God and Michael, commander of the Heavenly Host. Whenever God requires a fighting force of angels or an emissary to earth Gabriel is called to action. Although completely opposite in personality and motivation to the Archangel Michael, it is Gabriel whom God designates as Michael’s second in command and it is Gabriel who most often gets the nod when God wishes to intervene in the affairs of man. This narrative chronicles events such as Satan’s great rebellion and the expulsion of the fallen angels from heaven, Gabriel’s relationships with other angels in heaven and his frequent interactions with us on Earth. Here he writes of his role in the ongoing history of God’s creation and gives first hand reports of his experiences as God emissary to man. The Reluctant Warrior takes us through all of Gabriel the Archangel’s recorded experiences throughout history right up to his ultimate role as leader against the antichrist during the Apocalypse. The Reluctant Warrior presents the history of God’s creation from its early stages until the Second Coming through the voice of God’s most celebrated Archangel.

Why did American leaders work hard to secure multilateral approval from the United Nations or NATO for military interventions in Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo, while making only limited efforts to gain such approval for the 2003 Iraq War? In Reassuring the Reluctant Warriors, Stefano Recchia draws on declassified documents and about one hundred interviews with civilian and military leaders to illuminate little-known aspects of U.S. decision making in the run-up to those interventions. American leaders, he argues, seek UN or NATO approval to facilitate sustained military and financial burden sharing and ensure domestic support. However, the most assertive, hawkish, and influential civilian leaders in Washington tend to downplay the costs of intervention, and when confronted with hesitant international partners they often want to bypass multilateral bodies. In these circumstances, America’s senior generals and admirals—as reluctant warriors who worry about Vietnam-style quagmires—can play an important restraining role, steering U.S. policy toward multilateralism. Senior military officers are well placed to debunk the civilian interventionists’ optimistic assumptions regarding the costs of war, thereby undermining broader governmental support for intervention. Recchia demonstrates that when the military expresses strong concerns about the stabilization burden, even hawkish civilian leaders can be expected to work hard to secure multilateral support through the UN or NATO—if only to reassure the reluctant warriors about long-term burden sharing. By contrast, when the military stays silent, as it did in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq War, the most hawkish civilians are empowered; consequently, the United States is more likely to bypass multilateral bodies and may end up shouldering a heavy stabilization burden largely by itself. Recchia’s argument that the military has the ability to contribute not only to a more prudent but also to a more multilateralist U.S. intervention policy may be counterintuitive, but the evidence is compelling.

World War II, 1939-1945, was easily the most destructive war in history; claiming the lives of from fifty to sixty millions of people. This historical fiction takes us "behind the scenes" in the lives of everyday people who became reluctant warriors. Each of the men depicted in this book—Joseph “Chip” Wiley, Jimmy DeValery, Harry Conners, and Theodore Rodgers—were admirable people who gave everything they had and became Army scouts, men in aircraft like the B-25, B-17, P-38, P-47. They went from the guy next door to operating Navy PT boats, submarines, destroyers, and heavy cruisers. They did what America and the world needed them to do. These men, and the millions they represent, had lives, families, and careers they left behind. And they were not the only ones to report for duty: their families also had to fight daily battles through hardships, through defeats, through loss. Reluctant Warriors brings these stories home to our hearts and reingnites our gratitude for those who fight so we can live free.
