An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

In 1967, Joe Putnam, fresh out of officer training school, is shipped overseas to Vietnam as part of President Johnson’s American Adviser program. Putnam would be one of the American soldiers advising the South Vietnamese Army on how to conduct a war against the North Vietnamese Army and their allies in the south, the Viet Cong. This plan would supposedly keep the Communists at bay without actually getting the U.S. into full-fledged war in Southeast Asia.In his military memoir, now retired Lt. Col. Joe A.

The Good Will Son

by David S Libbey

The Good Will Son is a memoir by the son of two orphans from the Good Will Home in Hinckley, Maine.

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...

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.

The second and the third letters are the clearest piece of narrative that we can ask for. We see the advance into the country, the conscientious determination to penetrate by peace, diplomacy or the sword to Montezuma’s capital, leading up to the final dramatic meeting with Montezuma himself.”―New StatesmanThese five letters by the Spanish conqueror, Hernando Cortés, were written to the Emperor Charles V of Spain between 1519 and 1526.
