Featured Review

Behind the Lines A Critical Survey of Special Operations in World War II

"...Dilley brings to the fore several important ideas. For example, one-of-a-kind formations such as the British special reconnaissance unit known as Popski’s [Private] Army and the American Alamo Scouts inspired some aspects of what is now understood as strategic reconnaissance. This book is useful in understanding one important aspect of the development of special operations forces: training to explicit tasks. Dilley specifically assesses cases that required specialized training and, often, specialized conditions for rehearsal."

Da Nang Diary A Forward Air Controller's Gunsight View of Flying with SOG

Highly decorated Author Tom Yarborough deflects all credit to others while assuring accuracy through extensive research of this incredible military history. There are many current day BIO's of the characters in the book that I found extremely interesting. Da Nang Diary has my highest recommendation.

The Last Hot Battle of the Cold War South Africa vs. Cuba in the Angolan Civil War

Author Peter Polack chronicles a critical clash in The Last Hot Battle of the Cold War – an exciting, illuminating study ....Polack strives mightily to achieve balance and fairness in covering Cuito Cuanavale combat. And until researchers gain unfettered access to official Cuban and Angolan sources, his methodology remains our only option. Interested in Cold War conflict? Grab this book. Recommended!

Featured Review

The Lieutenant Don't Know One Marine's Story of Warfare and Combat Logistics in Afghanistan

“Jeff Clement has written a superb account of a young Marine officer’s day-to-day life in the complex combat environment of today’s conflicts. His book takes the reader onto the ground and gives him a firsthand sense of the events, emotions, and challenges our troops experience. This is a must read for all Americans who want to understand what our sons and daughters in uniform go through on the strange battlefields where they bravely serve.”

MILITARY REVIEW , March 2014


Featured Review

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

Everybody knows Easy Company. But until now, few knew Fox. This tick-tock account is beefed up with first-person reminiscences about events and exploits from D-Day and from Holland to Bastogne that are chunked into the narrative à la a video documentary.

Featured Review

The Devil's General The Life of Hyazinth Graf Strachwitz - the "Panzer Graf"

Despite his fanciful first name, this Silesian nobleman’s little-known career is a suggestive one-man slice of World War II, the Freikorps, and the Eastern Front, where the Soviets learned to fear his tank commands

WORLD WAR II MAGAZINE, March 2014


Featured Review

Special Operations in the American Revolution

...a satisfying combination of the well-known, such as the capture of Fort Ticonderoga, to the relatively obscure, such as the exploits throughout much of the war of Patriot Benjamin Whitcomb and his rangers in the area between Fort Ticonderoga and Montreal.

Featured Review

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

Poyser and Brown, utilizing so many first-hand accounts, have produced a captivating history of a battle-tested unit and its young American soldiers. The natural rhythm and drama of their experiences, as told many years later, makes a fitting and impressive memorial sure to attract many readers.

STONE AND STONE BOOK REVIEW, March 2014


Featured Review

Year of Glory The Life and Battles of Jeb Stuart and His Cavalry, June 1862–June 1863

Aker's animated writing style places the reader within Jeb Stuart's inner circle as they gather around the campfire singing a popular melody or conferring over future combat operations. For the student of Civil War history, this work provides a deeper understanding of one of the most intriguing leaders and characters of the war...a great addition to any Civil War Collection."

MILITARY REVIEW , March 2014


Featured Review

Year of Glory The Life and Battles of Jeb Stuart and His Cavalry, June 1862–June 1863

Akers does have an exciting story to tell, and he tells it in a clear, colloquial style. The narrative begins with Stuart's famously risky 'ride around McClellan' just before the Seven Days' battles. The story moves quickly from one major battle to another: Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. At this last battle Stuart reached his apogee, as he was called on take over the Second Corps after the wounding of the renowned Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson. . . . For those who wish to see the Confederacy as the 'land of Cavaliers,' Akers is your guide, with Jeb Stuart as his beau ideal." 

JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN HISTORY , March 2014


Featured Review

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

Fighting Fox Company is a superb book and should be the new model for small unit histories. Terry Poyser and Bill Brown have done an outstanding job of research and have included an incredible amount of detail about the personnel, organization, and operations of the company, while integrating it into the narrative in a way that doesn't interfere, but enhances it. The quality of the photographs are first rate and compare with those of Mark Bando's fine works. Through the photographs you get to put faces with the names of the officers and men in the book. The maps are plentiful and well done. There is a fine balance of first person accounts woven into the narrative, which is particularly good considering that this was their first published work. I hope that historians and authors will use this book as a model and a template for similar books. The only negative thing I can find about this book is the tag line of the title, The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers. Fox Company nor this book should take a backseat to Easy Company and Band of Brothers. This book is a must read for readers of World War II and airborne history. I highly recommend it.

PHIL NORDYKE, AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN , March 2014


Taking Fire Saving Captain Aikman: A Story of the Vietnam Air War

...a tribute to airmen who are dedicated to saving lives. The authors have created a vivid, page-turning narrative of war from the first to the final page. A few times I thought I was watching a movie and not just reading about loyalty, courage, sacrifice, and true heroism...

PURPLE HEART NEWSLETTER , February 2014


Featured Review

Barksdale's Charge The True High Tide of the Confederacy at Gettysburg, July 2, 1863

"Phillip Tucker's well-researched book provides a breathless account of what one Union officer called 'the grandest charge ever seen by mortal man.' . . . Some 1,600 men raced across Emmitsburg Road and into the Peach Orchard, assaulted the salient created by Sickles' move forward, and drove Union forces back more than a mile. . . . But the complete breach of Maj. Gen. George Meade's left-center, and an unobstructed path to Cemetery Ridge, was not to be."

Featured Review

Assault from the Sky U.S Marine Corps Helicopter Operations in Vietnam

There are two reasons why “Assault From the Sky: U.S. Marine Corps Helicopter Operations in Vietnam” is so distinctive that it deserves an appellation all its own: first, combining qualities of superlative research and scholarship for the first book to document the sacrifice and heroism of helicopter crews in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975; and, second, the author, Dick Camp, himself...a cogent, yet stunning, strategic history that the reader will find difficult to put down...

Featured Review

Shanghai 1937 Stalingrad on the Yangtze

"Largely ignored in the West, Japan and China fought a horrible large-scale battle for the city of Shanghai from July to November 1937... Shanghai 1937: Stalingrad on the Yangtze relates the story of this awful months-long battle and its effect on later events... This book is meticulously researched, and vignettes are included from generals and privates alike. Civilian accounts, the bulk of them from residents of the International Settlement, abound. Most of the sources are translated Chinese works. The author weaves them together in a way that gives a sense of the battle's breadth and horror. Readers interested in the history of the Sino-Japanese fighting of the 1930s will find this book a valuable addition to their libraries."

Hal Moore A Soldier Once…and Always

this book brings the saga of one of the Army’s premier combat commanders to a new generation of military leaders. We are in Hal Moore’s debt for his distinguished service under the most challenging conditions. We are in Guardia’s debt for making Moore’s story accessible to the American public.

Featured Review

Hal Moore A Soldier Once…and Always

In the well-written biography “Hal Moore: A Soldier Once…and Always,” author Mike Guardia tells how Moore exemplifies the leadership qualities needed in all military leaders both in battle and in peacetime. It is a well-documented study of an exceptional soldier and innovative problem solver...“Hal Moore” is a quick read, yet contains sufficient depth to fully understand Moore’s personality, character and motivation. It explores his knack for bringing out the best in his subordinates and for turning poor performing units into extraordinary organizations that became the envy of other commanders. This biography should be essential reading for every sergeant and officer in the military, and every executive in business.
