What Levine initially sees as a simple assignment turns complicated as an unrepentant Harris challenges Levine's progressive values and morality.

Vietnam The Last Combat Marines: The Military and Political Times of the Baby Boomer War
Vietnam The Last Combat Marines: The Military
In this compelling and meticulously researched book on the Vietnam War era, David Gerhardt blends his riveting firsthand experience with documented facts. The result is a historical war memoir offering a comprehensive perspective on one of America's most notoriously divisive eras and brutal armed conflicts. Whether they fought in it, demonstrated against it, or subsisted through the tumultuous times, Vietnam belonged to the baby boomer generation. These historical times were defined with drugs, sex, rock bands, assassinations of public figures, and riots in cities and on college campuses. From the war's politics to the twists and turns of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, this compelling account weaves history and statistics with pulse-pounding stories of survival, creating a fabric of understanding for a nation still trying to reconcile this dark and bloody chapter of America's past. Beginning with boot camp and ending with the postwar brutalities of communist regimes in Southeast Asia, including the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia—led by the evil Pol Pot—this unique account of the Vietnam War years is replete with sardonic tales of "boom-boom" girls, snakes, drugs, and some twisted soldier humor. As part of the last marine combat platoon, Gerhardt is the perfect one to tell it.

Last Man Standing: The 1st Marine Regiment on Peleliu, September 15-21, 1944
Last Man Standing: The 1st Marine Regiment on
One of the bloodiest battles in Marine Corps history, Operation Stalemate, as Peleliu was called, was overshadowed by the Normandy landings. It was also, in time, judged by most historians to have been unnecessary; though it had been conceived to protect MacArthur’s flank in the Philippines, the U.S. fleet’s carrier raids had eliminated Japanese airpower, rendering Peleliu irrelevant. Nevertheless, the horrifying number of casualties sustained there (71% in one battalion) foreshadowed for the rest of the war: rather than fight to the death on the beach, the Japanese would now defend in depth and bleed the Americans white. Drawing extensively on personal interviews, the Marine Corps History Division’s vast oral history and photographic collection, and many never-before-published sources, this book gives us a new and harrowing vision of what really happened at Peleliu--and what it meant. Working closely with two of the 1st Regiment’s battalion commanders--Ray Davis and Russ Honsowetz--Marine Corps veteran and military historian Dick Camp recreates the battle as it was experienced by the men and their officers. Soldiers who survived the terrible slaughter recall the brutality of combat against an implacable foe; they describe the legendary “Chesty” Puller, l...
