H.A.L.O by Derek Hart Book Summary:

When orders came through for David Lockhart to gather his team together for another top-secret mission, he thought nothing of it. It came from the proper source, within proper channels, encoded with the latest series of ciphers. Everything seemed in order. It was not. The mission was a one-way ticket to oblivion and the ambush MESA walked into took every life of the team. All except one. Yup, you guessed it. David Lockhart managed to shoot his way out, a combination of skills, training, and a beautiful woman. For the perpetrators of this betrayal of one of the most successful covert teams in American history, David Lockhart's survival was not a good thing. No, it was not a good thing. For now Lockhart was mad. Not the raging, red-faced, out-of-control, irrational type of mad. You see, David Lockhart wasn't like that. His anger was far more dangerous, for his outlet was directed at planning, cold and calculating analysis of what went wrong. Just be certain that revenge would be his.

The Assassination of John F. Kennedy, 1963 by Susan Sales Harkins,William H. Harkins Book Summary:

Some events so strongly affect the world that people remember exactly what they were doing when they heard the news. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was one of these events. Ask almost any American who was alive at the time where he or she was when his death was announced, and you will get an answer. A Democrat with plans for social reform, President Kennedy was both loved and hated. Despite the political friction his ideas generated, no one would have predicted the events of November 22, 1963, when, supposedly, a lone gunman changed the course of history. Most of Kennedy’s idealistic platform went to the grave with him. Almost half a century after his death, the United States continues to battle these same issues.

The Pacification of Earth

President Down [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Pacification of Earth by Dean Warren Book Summary:

The Pacification of Earth is presented in three sections. Part I, American Revolt: By 2090 almost half of the now immense American population is on welfare. Brilliant, talking computers have stolen most service and middle management jobs, while exploding populations in the southern hemisphere monopolize dumb factory work. And aquifers dry, world wide, causing food shortages. Ben Bjorn, a blond, young Welfie of the merged San Diego and Los Angeles ghetto, escapes a life of squalor by entering the Marine Corps. Well educated by his uncle, he vows to somehow fix the worlds present ugliness. The U.S. invades Mexico with the object of building a death strip along the border that will keep back desperate migrants. Bjorn excels in the resulting combat that involves underwater fleets, personal armor, flechette weapons, and invisible vehicles. We see him grow from a nave, lusty youth to a self-disciplined warrior. The administration cuts Welfie rations while exporting wheat. In the disorder that follows, Bjorn helps his people, is given command of a self-defense Welfie battalion. Fights escalate to a civil war in which Bjorn is the military fist of a Welfie triumvirate. As Part I ends, the Welfies win, rations are equalized, and fertility depressant is dumped into all water supplies. Part II, The Crescent Strikes: As 2100 dawns, Chinese agents kidnap Bjorn and require, as ransom, the shipment of American wheat to their starving people. After our hero escapes by cleverly killing his captors, Europe pleads for military help against the Turkish-led Moslems who threaten invasion from across the Bosphorus. As if those two threats werent enough, American Achievers, the educated and employed class, seek their old power and perquisites. Rebellion simmers below the feet of the Welfie government. After Bjorn survives a Turkish assassination attempt, he flies one hundred and fifty thousand high technology troops to Romania and assumes command of European forces. Estranged from his wife, he also acquires a gorgeous German mistress. In early spring, the Moslems cross the Bosphorus into Europe and throw back part of Bjorns army. He builds defenses behind the Danube Canal. While retreating to that line, Bjorn wins the loyalty of European Achiever officers and raw Balkan units. Moslem armies strike Bjorns line. Defenders respond with fuel-air explosives, smart missiles, flechette rifles, stealth tanks, and microwave weapons that shut down electrical systems. Bjorns mistress, a tool of Achiever conspirators, tries to murder him. He encircles and defeats the Moslems. Bjorn then crushes an Achiever-led rebellion in Western Europe and establishes personal control. News that Chinese armies threaten Siberia convinces Bjorn that the survival of civilization requires he continue his conquests. A world empire is the only cure for humanitys ills. Part III, Imperial Power: In early spring of 2102, Bjorn is thirty years old. He boards his ramjet transport for Irkutsk, in Siberia, while the Chinese gather overwhelming forces nearby in Mongolia. Near his destination, anti-aircraft missiles hunt his aircraft but a brilliant pilot--an Anne Scowcraft--pancakes the aircraft on a swamp in the Siberian taiga. His small party ambushes the killers sent by the Achiever commander of the Russian defenses and finally reaches safety with the German Corps Bjorn has sent as reinforcements to the Slavs. Bjorn manages a Russian command change and a retreat. A romance with Anne grows while Bjorn prepares a defense on the Ob River and establishes a blocking force on the Old Silk Road into Kazakastan. These are the two major land invasion routes to and from China. He sets in motion the conquest of Turkey and Iran, and appoints his ex-wife chief of a world-wide fertility depressant campaign. He announces a World Federation and asks Latin America and Asia to

It includes State Department cables, correspondence, and memoranda on topics such as Vietnam, Watergate, the days following 9/11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and much more.

With the same directness that defined his career in public service, Rumsfeld's memoir is filled with previously undisclosed details and insights about the Bush administration, 9/11, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It also features Rumsfeld's unique and often surprising observations on eight decades of history: his experiences growing up during the Depression and World War II, his time as a Naval aviator; his service in Congress starting at age 30; his cabinet level positions in the Nixon and Ford White Houses; his assignments in the Reagan administration; and his years as a successful business executive in the private sector. Rumsfeld addresses the challenges and controversies of his illustrious career, from the unseating of the entrenched House Republican leader in 1965, to helping the Ford administration steer the country away from Watergate and Vietnam, to bruising battles over transforming the military for the 21st century, to the war in Iraq, to confronting abuse at Abu Ghraib and allegations of torture at Guantanamo Bay. Along the way, he offers his plainspoken, first-hand views and often humorous and surprising anecdotes about some of the world's best known figures, from Margaret Thatcher to Saddam Hussein, from Henry Kissinger to Colin Powell, from Elvis Presley to Dick Cheney, and each American president from Dwight D. Eisenhower to George W. Bush. Rumsfeld relies not only on his memory but also on previously unreleased and recently declassified documents.

Rawhide Down

President Down [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Rawhide Down by Del Quentin Wilber Book Summary:

A Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book for 2011 A Richmond Times Dispatch Top Book for 2011 A minute-by-minute account of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was just seventy days into his first term of office when John Hinckley Jr. opened fire outside the Washington Hilton Hotel, wounding the president, press secretary James Brady, a Secret Service agent, and a D.C. police officer. For years, few people knew the truth about how close the president came to dying, and no one has ever written a detailed narrative of that harrowing day. Now, drawing on exclusive new interviews and never-before-seen documents, photos, and videos, Del Quentin Wilber tells the electrifying story of a moment when the nation faced a terrifying crisis that it had experienced less than twenty years before, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. With cinematic clarity, we see Secret Service agent Jerry Parr, whose fast reflexes saved the president's life; the brilliant surgeons who operated on Reagan as he was losing half his blood; and the small group of White House officials frantically trying to determine whether the country was under attack. Most especially, we encounter the man code-named "Rawhide," a leader of uncommon grace who inspired affection and awe in everyone who worked with him. Ronald Reagan was the only serving U.S. president to survive being shot in an assassination attempt.* Rawhide Down is the first true record of the day and events that literally shaped Reagan's presidency and sealed his image in the modern American political firmament. *There have been many assassination attempts on U.S. presidents, four of which were successful: Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy. President Theodore Roosevelt was injured in an assassination attempt after leaving office.
