Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Growing up on Guam in 1972, fifteen-year-old Kiko is beset by worries: He's never kissed a girl, the popular guys get all the attention at school--but the worst part is the serious problems at home. His older brother is missing in Vietnam, his grandfather is losing it to dementia, and he just learned that his mother was raped by a Japanese soldier during World War II. It all comes together when he discovers an old man, a Japanese soldier, hiding in the jungle behind his house. It's not the same man who raped his mother, but, in his rage, Kiko cares only about protecting his family and avenging his mom--no matter what it takes. And so, a shy, peaceable boy begins to plan a murder. But how far will Kiko go to prove to himself that he's a man? Based on a true incident in history, No Surrender Soldier is the story of a boy grappling with ancient questions of courage and manhood before he can move on.
Download PDF No Surrender Book by Hiroo Onoda Full eBook and published by Naval Institute Press. This book was released on 2013-12-04 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the spring of 1974, Second Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda of the Japanese army made world headlines when he emerged from the Philippine jungle after a thirty-year ordeal. Hunted in turn by American troops, the Philippine police, hostile islanders, and successive Japanese search parties, Onoda had skillfully outmaneuvered all his pursuers, convinced that World War II was still being fought and that one day his fellow soldiers would return victorious. This account of those years is an epic tale of the will to survive that offers a rare glimpse of man's invincible spirit, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. A hero to his people, Onoda wrote down his experiences soon after his return to civilization. This book was translated into English the following year and has enjoyed an approving audience ever since.

Download PDF Bruce Springsteen – Like a Killer in the Sun. Songtexte Book by Leonardo Colombati Full eBook and published by Reclam Verlag. This book was released on 2019-08-26 with total page 960 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Erste autorisierte und einzige deutsche Ausgabe von Springsteens Lyrics Bruce Springsteens Lyrics erscheinen zusammengenommen als Kapitel eines großen amerikanischen Romans, den er in den 1970ern begonnen hat und der in diesem Buch nachvollzogen wird. Kritiker halten den "Chronisten des amerikanischen Alltags" (Der Spiegel) und seine Lyrics inzwischen für ebenso wichtig für die amerikanische Literatur wie die Werke von Fitzgerald, Carver oder Whitman. Anders als Bob Dylan versteckt sich Springsteen nicht hinter immer neuen Masken, er erzählt unverstellt von dem American Dream und seinen Schattenseiten – von der Provinz, von der Flucht aus ihr und dem Sog der Freiheit, von den Chancen der Selbstsuche wie auch von Armut, Rassismus oder Polizeigewalt. Leonardo Colombati entschlüsselt überraschende Hintergründe und Einflüsse. Die Wucht von Springsteens Bildern wie auch die leisen Erschütterungen in seiner Sprache macht Heinz Rudolf Kunze in seinen kongenialen Übersetzungen erfahrbar. Das Buch bietet: • Einleitung, Biographie und Kommentare von Leonardo Colombati • 100 Songs im Original und in deutscher Übersetzung von Heinz Rudolf Kunze • umfangreiches Bonusmaterial, Diskographie u. ä.

This book was released on 2017-05-18 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A modern and current examination of Reconstruction that explains how the South in the aftermath of defeat in a total war, was still able to exhaust the will of the powerful North using asymmetric warfare. • Offers a synthesis of asymmetric warfare concepts that provides a novel context for understanding events and developments of the Reconstruction era and the emergence of the New South • Enables readers to draw interesting parallels between the events of Reconstruction 140 years ago to the recent U.S. military's experience in the Middle East • Explains how reconciliation and peace result from a political-social equilibrium that marks the achievement of the weaker actor's goals • Offers a view of history that places events in terms of examining conflict to explain the achievement of a weaker actor's goals

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A startling omission from the extensive literature on the Pacific events of World War II is an analysis of Allied psychological operations. Allison B. Gilmore makes a strong case for the importance of psychological warfare in this theater, countering the usual view of fanatical resistance by Japanese units. Gilmore marshals evidence that Japanese military indoctrination did not produce soldiers who were invulnerable to demoralization and the survival instinct.
Download PDF Literary Chance Book by Gerald Vizenor Full eBook and published by Universitat de València. This book was released on 2007 with total page 155 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Gerald Vizenor és l’autor indi nord-americà més important d’aquests moments i el que més obres ha publicat. Poeta, assagista, novel·lista, periodista, professor, activista compromés i crític aferrissat de la política racial discriminatòria nord-americana, ha dedicat i continua dedicant la seua vida a estudiar, explorar i redefinir la història passada i present dels nadius nord-americans en la que una vegada fou la seua terra. Autor prolífic –amb més de trenta títols publicats– i extraordinàriament innovador, ha rebut nombrosos premis i reconeixements. El tret que distingeix la seua producció literària és la unicitat de temes i motius que la recorren amb un estil profundament personal que fon prosa, poesia i assaig sota un denominador comú: el d’un llenguatge on les fronteres entre gèneres desapareixen i donen pas a una literatura única que ben bé es podria encunyar com a vizenoriana. Literary Chance: Essays on Native American Survivance recull quinze assajos en els quals l’autor aprofundeix en com el llenguatge ha creat la imatge del que és l’indi nord-americà; un simulacre que Vizenor tracta de desfer amb un nou vocabulari que pose de manifest aquesta invenció i representació des de la simulació.

Download PDF Documents on the Tokyo International Military Tribunal Book by Neil Boister Full eBook and published by OUP Oxford. This book was released on 2008-09-25 with total page 1560 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despite the recent growth of interest in international criminal law, in research and practice, the Tokyo International Military Tribunal remains largely neglected. One of the reasons for this is the absence of any readily available version of the judgments that emanated from the Tribunal. This absence has prevented informed debate about a hugely important part of the development of international criminal law. These volumes fill the gap in the literature by reproducing the full text of the judgment, the separate and dissenting opinions and a selection of accompanying documents, including the charter, indictment and rules of procedure. All the documents are indexed and referenced to the original pagination of the Tribunal transcript. In addition, an introductory essay by the editors explains the nature of the tribunal and the law it applied, and outlines its impact on contemporary international criminal law.

Download PDF The U.S. Army and World War II Book by Judith Bellafaire Full eBook and published by U.S. Government Printing Office. This book was released on 1998 with total page 422 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The U.S. Army and World War II is an anthology of selected papers from three international conferences held in 1990, 1992, and 1994 on the Army's role in the war. Taking the best from those meetings, Judith L. Bellafaire has organized the various presentations into four thematic categories--prewar planning, the home front, the European theater, and the Asian-Pacific theaters--reflecting the diversity of both the war and the interest of those seeking to understand its many facets. In these carefully edited papers, one will find the more conventional treatments of doctrine, strategy, and operations side by side with those focusing on military mobilization and procurement, race and gender, psychological warfare, and large-scale advice and assistance programs. Despite significant changes in military technology and the geopolitical landscape of the world since those desperate times, the human problems highlighted by the authors are not much different from many of those facing Army leaders today. Although the past can never provide the specific recipes needed for the future, experience has shown that both the basic ingredients and the manner in which they are prepared and processed have remained remarkably constant. Those grappling with the challenges of stability operations and other contingency missions in support of the Global War on Terrorism will find this collection of readings invaluable.

Download PDF Fanaticism and Conflict in the Modern Age Book by Matthew Hughes Full eBook and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2004-12-15 with total page 209 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is fanaticism? Is the term at all useful? After all, one person's fanatic is another's freedom fighter. This new book probves these key questions of the twenty first century. It details how throughout history there have been fanatics eager to pursue their religious, political or personal agendas. Fanaticism has fuelled many of the conflicts of the twentieth century, in particular the theatres of combat of the Second World War. More recently, religious fanaticism has bedevilled affairs in the Middle East and elsewhere. Is fanaticism becoming more fanatical in the new millennium? As the events of 11 September 2001 prove, fanaticism, however it is defined, continues to dominate international affairs. The volume covers the nature and philosophy of fanaticism, the connection between political ideology and fanaticism, and the relationship between fanaticism and war in the contemporary era. To illustrate these themes, the volume presents a broad range of case studies including the Dervishes in the Sudan in the 1890s, fanaticism in the context of the Pacific war, 1937-45, the 12th SS Hitler Jugend Division in action in Normandy in 1944, the German army on the Eastern Front, and terrorism and guerrilla war after 1945.
Download PDF No Surrender Book by David Gilbert Full eBook and published by . This book was released on 2004 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A founder of Columbia University SDS, and a veteran of the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War Movements, David Gilbert joined the Weather Underground Organization in the late 60's. After more than 10 years of clandestine resistance, he was captured in the course of an armed action in 1981. Gilbert has been a revolutionary political prisoner for 22 years, continuing his work as an AIDs activist, and author from behind the walls. This first collection of David Gilbert's prison writings is a unique contribution to our understanding of the most ambitious and audacious attempts by white anti-imperialists to build an underground movement "within the belly of the beast." With unsparing honesty (and unfailing humor), he discusses the errors and successes of the WUO and their allies; the pitfalls of racism, sexism and ego in revolutionary organizations; and the possibilities and perils facing today's growing anti-imperialist resistance. Includes forewords by political prisoners Marilyn Buck and Sundiata Acoli. "This book stands alone in the growing number of books about the 1960s, the anti-Vietnam War Movement, and the Weather Underground Organization because of David's willingness to own it and analyze it. His discussion of the strength's and weaknesses of this history, the role of armed struggle, the rise of terrorism, the continued aggression of the U.S. government speak directly to the concerns of everyone working for justice anywhere. David's discussion of these topics is freer, more alive, and more honest than any I have read. This book should stimulate learning from our political prisoners, but more importantly it challenges us to work to free them, and in doing so take the best of our history forward." [Susan Rosenberg, former U.S. political prisoner] "David Gilbert is a warrior in the most profound sense of the term. Imbued with a near-crystalline clarity of principle, the indomitable courage to live his life in accordance with the values he holds true, and, most importantly, his every action guided by the immensity of his love for the wretched of this earth, he is truly an inspiration. Predictably, given the strength of Gilbert's character, his writings are offered as tools -- nay, WEAPONS -- in the ongoing struggle for liberation. They are thus of incalculable value to each of us who aspires to the attainment of freedom, justice and dignity for ALL people." [Ward Churchill
