The Nam Within

by Leonard Reese

The Nam Within, by Leonard Reese, is a narrative non-fiction memoir that speaks to veterans from all wars and others who deal with PTSD, depression, and the feeling that they may be “going crazy,” and their families and friends, so that they can see that survival is possible and that they are not alone, despite the battle scars that keep rising to the surface long after the physical combat ceases. "I did the best that I could to tell my story with all of the truth that I have within me. Almost fifty years have passed since my thirteen-month tour of duty in Vietnam from 1969–1970. I still see some of those images as clearly as if they were happenings within a blink-of-an-eye past. While others, partially confused and shaking like a pile of pick-up-sticks awaiting the next attempt at success or tragedy, arrive within the shadows of the night, blurred and weighted by the evening’s dew.Incorrect names and misplaced trails, rice paddies, and small areas of high ground dot these pages as if they were paint sprayed across canvas. Yet, in my mind’s eye they are accurate and certain in their descriptions, and even more clearly, in their grip upon my scared soul. Please know that these lines are much less about the fight than they are about the emotions of the men who did the fighting. We were more than just sand-box warriors moving from one pile of windblown up-turned-bucket encampments to the next moment’s instant rebirth, within a new pack of forest green plastic men preparing for counter attack or ambush.It is the feel for the war as it happened, and continues to happen, to this one man trapped within his memories, and that, I pray, might open at least one lone person’s eyes, or increase a loved one’s ability to understand his self-imposed blindness. I want you to experience the loss of self that many like myself went through so that you might more accurately understand the ghosts that continue to walk a kill-radius behind, or to our front."Leonard Reese is a retired school-bus driver who makes his home in the country outside of the small, East Texas town of Tatum. During his time as a bus driver, he taught English and History at Tatum ISD for thirty-five years to supplement his bus-driving income. He is married to his college sweetheart, Cynthia Jameson Reese, and they have two children, Elizabeth and Downs, who rule their world. Leonard was a rifleman in Quang Nam Provence, Vietnam with the 2nd platoon of Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Regiment, 1st Marine Division from 1969-70.

Four Weeks in the Trenches

by Fritz Kreisler

This brief record of the fighting on the Eastern front in the great war is the outcome of a fortunate meeting. The writer chanced to be dining with Mr. Kreisler soon after his arrival in this country, after his dismissal from the hospital where he recovered from his wound. For nearly two hours he listened, thrilled and moved, to the great violinist's modest, vivid narrative of his experiences and adventures. It seemed in the highest degree desirable that the American public should have an opportunity of reading this narrative from the pen of one in whose art so many of us take a profound interest. It also was apparent that since so little of an authentic nature had been heard from the Russo-Austrian field of warfare, this story would prove an important contribution to the contemporary history of the war.After much persuasion, Mr. Kreisler reluctantly acceded to the suggestion that he write out his personal memories of the war for publication. He has completed his narrative in the midst of grave difficulties, writing it piecemeal in hotels and railway trains in the course of a concert tour through the country. It is offered by the publishers to the public with confidence that it will be found one of the most absorbing and informing narratives of the war that has yet appeared.

The Horrific Crimes of Gilles de Rais Revisited: Life of a Serial Killer of the Middle Ages (Serial Killers Book 8)

by Jack Smith

Gille de Rais has been described as one of the most horrific serial killer of the Middle Ages or was he? Revisiting Gilles de Rais crimes.

La Roche-Bernard, France. September, 1438

Peronne Loessart knew that she should feel honored, both for herself and on her young son’s behalf. But she was still in a state of unease bordering on fear.

The Baron de Rais and his entourage were in her town, stopping at the hotel of Jean Colin, which was in the immediate neighborhood of Madame Loessart’s home. One of the Baron’s men, a man named Poitou, had spied her ten-year-old son and approached her about engaging the boy as his page.

Young Loessart often drew such attention. He was an uncommonly beautiful child, with golden hair and expressive blue eyes. But this was the first time that he had come to the notice of a potential patron.

Poitou, whose real name was Étienne Corrillaut, went to Madame Loessart and offered her four pounds for the boy’s services, with an added bonus of one hundred sous for a new dress. He also promised to continue the child’s education at a prestigious institution.

Although distressed at the thought of being parted from her son, Madame Loessart finally agreed. She knew that he had limited opportunities for advancement in La Roche-Bernard. Poitou also gave her his word that the boy would be well provided for.

She believed it. Gilles de Rais was the Marshal of France, a great man who had helped Jeanne d’Arc bring about the victory at Orléans. A regal escort preceded him wherever he went and trumpeters announced his presence at each destination. His ostentatious display of wealth and pageantry turned heads and inspired both awe and adoration. Now her son would have the chance to benefit from such glory.

A pony was purchased from the hotel owner for the boy to ride, and the Baron’s entourage left for his castle at Machecoul the following day. There was probably a tearful goodbye, accompanied by promises to send messages and see each other soon.

Despite the excellent opportunity she appeared to be giving her son, Madame Loessart remained anxious. Perhaps separation anxiety was taking hold. Maybe the rumors that had been circulating lately now seemed more plausible. Whatever the reason, she suddenly ran after the departing party.


One of the Baron’s servants intercepted the distraught woman and held her back, reminding her that a bargain had been struck. Gilles de Rais did not respond to her pleas. Instead, he spoke to the servant restraining her.

“He (the child) is well chosen. He is as beautiful as an angel.”

Finally Madame Loessart calmed down, and the Baron’s party resumed its journey.

Two years passed. The Baron’s servants passed through the village once during that time, although young Loessart was not with them. On demanding news of her son, the men informed her that the boy was either at Tiffauges or Pouzauges. The truth was that he was long dead.

The Kaiser, Führer & John: One Man, Two Wars (MERSEYSIDE TALES OF WAR Book 2)

by Chris Whitfield

When he died in 1984, John Rollinson appeared to have lived an undistinguished life, and for the majority of his eighty-seven years this had steadfastly been the case. Yet in the Great War between 1917 and 1918, he had trained at the notoriously brutal Étaples Camp in Northern France, experienced the mud hell of the Ypres battleground, and suffered behind the wire as an Allied Prisoner of War on a diet of black bread and acorn coffee. And then during the Second World War as an army cook, he was exposed to the terrors of Dunkirk, subjected to chemical experiments at Porton Down, and forced to witness the horrors of the liberated Buchenwald Concentration Camp in Germany.Based on a true story, The Kaiser, Führer & John is a humbling, remarkable account of stoicism, fortitude, and courage, a tale of two wars told through the eyes of an otherwise ordinary man and his family back home in Liverpool.From the author of Billy, Eric & Adolf.
