Best Little Stories from World War II
by C. Brian kelly
One of the fascinating things about war is the stories that come from 

it. Kelly has compiled over a hundred of these stories from World War 

II that would make any history buff proud. Books like this remind us 

that war is not only battles, generals and casualty rates. There is so 

much more beneath the surface. Wars are faught by people, by human 

beings, and when that many human beings share a common experience, 

there are certainly some good stories coming from it. Best Little 

Stories of World War II is a wonderful choice for anyone interested in 

history or in WWII. 352 pages

Faith of My Fathers

John McCain learned about life and honor from his father and grandfather, both four star admirals in the U.S. Navy. This story covers their lives, their heroism, and the ways that sons are shaped and enriched by their fathers. John McCain's grandfather was one of the Navy's greatest commanders, and led the strongest aircraft carrier force of the THIRD FLEET in key battles during WWII. John's father followed a similar path, equally distinguished by heroic service in the Navy as a submarine commander during WWII, rising to the rank of four star admiral. The McCains became the first family in American History to achieve that distinction. John McCain Jr. became commander of all U.S. forces in the Pacific during the Vietnam war.

It was in the Vietnam war that John McCain III faced the most difficult challenge of his life. As a naval aviator he was shot down over Hanoi in 1967. His story tells of torture beyond belief, inhumane treatment by his Vietnamese captors during five and a half years of imprisonment.

After a career in the U.S. Navy and two terms as a U.S. Representative (1982-86), John McCain was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986 and re-elected in 1992 and 1998. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, with 22 years in the military, McCain became best known as " The U.S. Senator from Arizona."

Brief history of the Ferguson.

The brainchild of Major Patrick Ferguson. Breechloaders had been built prior to Ferguson, most notably the rifles made by Chaumette, but they were delicate affairs, unsuited to the rigors of military requirements. Ferguson took an existing idea: the screw breech, and built it into a practical military firearm, or at least as practical as technology of the time (1770's) would permit.

Down the Great Unknown: John Wesley Powell's 1869 Journey of Discovery

On May 24, 1869, a one-armed Civil War veteran named John Wesley Powell and a ragtag band of nine mountain men embarked on the last great quest in the American West. No one had ever explored the fabled Grand Canyon. The ten men set out from Green River Station, Wyoming Territory, down the mighty Colorado in four wooden rowboats. Ninety-nine days later, just six half-starved wretches came ashore near Callville, Arizona.

Drawing on rarely-examined diaries and journals, Down the Great Unknown is the first book to tell the full, dramatic story of the Powell expedition. Lewis and Clark opened the West in 1803, as memorably recreated in Stephen Ambrose's bestseller Undaunted Courage; six decades later Powell and his scruffy band aimed to resolve the West's last mystery. A brilliant narrative, a thrilling journey, a cast of memorable heroes -- all these mark Down the Great Unknown as the true story of the last epic adventure on American soil.       publs. 2001

Beyond the Rhine: A Screaming Eagle in Germany

Donald R. Burgett and the rest of the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne had fought long and hard since the Normandy invasion. They fought through seventy-two days of continuous combat in Holland, and thirty days of frozen hell in Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. War weary, tired, and bloodied, Burgett and other Screaming Eagles of A Company were heading for the last battle, the drive that would carry them through Alsace, Germany's Ruhr Valley, the Rhineland, Austria, and the end of the war in Europe." "The last push across Germany did not hold the full-scale fanatic resistance the U.S. command had expected, but rather, small pockets of die-hard Nazis unwilling to admit that they had lost. It became clear why some did not wish to surrender. Burgett and the other American soldiers discovered forced labor camps of half-starved Poles, Russians, Czechs, and Jews; men, women, and children all forced to labor for the cause of Germany, or die." "Burgett and his men liberated four Nazi concentration camps where inmates were starved, brutally and systematically tortured, medically and surgically experimented on, and finally gassed and cremated. Burgett writes: "German guards were still forcing inmates to stoke the furnaces with human bodies as we tore through the barbed-wire enclosures. We witnessed atrocities that were beyond human comprehension."" "The Americans fought on from the Black Forest in Bavaria, to Berchtesgaden, where VE day found the Screaming Eagles finally at rest in the Eagle's Nest, Hitler's fabled mountaintop retreat.    pages 208      hardcover.

  • Plan for a Clean Energy Future

    "Well, I don't believe that climate change is just an issue that's convenient to bring up during a campaign. I believe it's one of the greatest moral challenges of our generation. That's why I've fought successfully in the Senate to increase our investment in renewable fuels. That's why I reached across the aisle to come up with a plan to raise our fuel standards… And I didn't just give a speech about it in front of some environmental audience in California. I went to Detroit, I stood in front of a group of automakers, and I told them that when I am president, there will be no more excuses — we will help them retool their factories, but they will have to make cars that use less oil."
