4 ATKINSON, Rick Long Gray Line : The American Journey of West Point's Class of 1966. 1st USin dj
Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1989, 
ATKINSON, Rick. The Long Gray Line. [dustjackets adds : The American Journey of West Point's Class of 1966]. Boston : Houghton Mifflin Co., 1989. First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xiii,(3),[1]-592,+ 24 8vo, grey paper-covered boards, blue cloth spine. "Theirs was the dream of all young men : tobecome heroes. Inspired by John E Kennedy's call to serve the nation, the West Point class of 1966 first gathered above the Hudson River on a glorious afternoon in July 1962. But as the cadets swore their oath of allegiance,they could not begin to imagine the dark journey that lay ahead. The Long Gray Line is the true story of that journey, an epic tale about an extraordinary generation of military officers and the women they loved. This spellbinding narrative brings to life a rich cast of characters, including Douglas MacArthur, William Westmoreland, and a score of other memorable figures. Yet the story is told primarily through the lives of three classmates. JackWheeler, whose intelligence is surpassed only by his idealism, comes from a long line of soldiers, but gradually he discovers that he lacks any real appetite for the bloody art of war. Brash and impetuous Tom Carhart aspiresto wear a general's stars, yet he is haunted by bad luck and his stubborn refusal to compromise his principles. George Crocker, born to lead troops through the dark of night, becomes ever more proficient as a warrior, and his story is the story of the Army over the past quarter century. Rick Atkinson tracks the men of '66 through their high-spirited cadet years and into the fires of Vietnam, where dozens of them died and hundreds more grew disillusioned. During the hard peace that followed, they resigned from the Army in record numbers, only to find that civilian life offered no easy answers either. West Point - an institution of mythic proportions - remained a powerful influence in their lives, even as the academy itself weathered a period of profound change. The tragic war, a shameful cneating scanda, the divisive questioning of the ideals upon which the academy had stood for nearly two centuries — all shook West Point to its foundation, forcing soldiers andciivilians alike to reconsider the. role of the military in a democratic s ociety. Brilliantly conceived and eloquently written, The Long Gray Line tells a deeply affecting story that spans twenty-five turbulent years. The West Point class of 1966 straddled a fault line in American history, and thismasterly book speaks for a generation about innocence, patriotism, and the price we pay for our dreams." - from the dj.

BARNARD, Roger and James McLELLAN, (eds.). Codeswitching in University English-medium Classes : Asian Perspectives. Bristol : Multilingual Matters, (2014). Pp (4),v-xv,(1),1- 224. 8vo, red cardcovers. No.36 in the New Perspectives on Language and Education series. "In the complex, multilingual societies of the 21st century, codeswitching is an everyday occurrence, and yet the use of students' first language in the English language classroom has been consistently discouraged by teachers and educational policy-makers. This volume begins by examining current theoretical work on codeswitching and then proceeds to examine the convergence and divergence between university language teachers' beliefs about codeswitching and their classroom practice. Each chapter investigates the extent of, and motivations for, codeswitching in one or two particular contexts, and the interactive and pedagogical functions for which alternative languages are used. Many teachers, and policy-makers, in schools as well as universities, may rethink existing 'Englishonly' policies in the light of the findings reported in this book."- from rear cover.

6 BAUMANN, Robert F. Leavenworth Papers No. 20 Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan
Combat Studies Institute, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 1993, ISBN:0160419530 
BAUMANN, Robert F. Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan. Leavenworth Papers Number 20. Fort Leavenworth, Kansas : Combat Studies Institute, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, (1993). Pp (2),iii-x,(1),1-219,(3). Illustrated. 4to, white card covers, black and maroon lettering. "The Soviet Union's agonizing decade-long struggle against a fiercely determined Mujahideen resistance in Afghanistan offers.a compelling illustration of the perils which can await a modern power that commits conventional forces against an unconventional foe in an undeveloped theater. That the Soviets embarked on such a rash course in 1979 isespecially striking in light of the American experience in Vietnam just a few years earlier and Russia's long historical involvement fighting Muslim tribesmen in the Caucasus and Central Asia. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Imperial Russia attempted to impose its authority on the Caucasus only to become embroiled in a protracted and brutal war against the mountain tribes of Dagestan. A charismatic leader, Shamil, emerged to harness the power of a formidable resistance that nearly foiled the Russian plan ofconquest, which was fulfilled only after decades of destructive and costly campaigning. Following the collapse of opposition in Dagestan in 1859, the Russians concentrated on the conquest of Central Asia as far as the Afghan and Persian frontiers. Here, vast steppes and deserts-formidable obstacles standing between Russia and the remote khanates-eventually yielded to the determination and methodical preparation of key Russian commanders. Established by a series of major campaigns from the 1850s to the 1880s, Russian rule in Central Asia remained stable until the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917. With the collapse of imperial power, however, the empire dissolved.Efforts to impose Red rule over the former imperial possessions in Central Asia sparked popular resistance among the Muslim tribes and required massi ve intervention by the Red Army. The four episodes considered in this studyprovide useful perspectives on the nature of unconventional warfare, the a daptability of modern military institutions, the character of cross-cultural conflict, and the dilemmas inherent in the creation " (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Russian Subjugation of the Central Caucasus: The War Against the Mountaineers. 2. The Conquest of Central Asia. 3. The liquidation of the Basmachi Resistance, 1918—1933. 4. The Soviet-Afghan War. 5. Conclusions. Very good. 25.00

Chen (b. 1926, Fujian, China - d. June 9, 1993, Newark) political scienctist and historian. "Historians will undoubtedly record that no war with a foreign enemy has so divided theUnited States as the war in Vietnam. In the debate on the war, the questio n has often been asked: Why and how did the United States get involved? This is one of the central questions in Professor Chen's book, which describesHo Chi Minh's rise to leadership of the Vietnamese Communist party and his relations with the Nationalists and then the Communists in China. The auth or traces Vietnamese/Chinese relations from 300 B.C., through the French takeover in 1885 and the Chinese revolution of the 1940s to the Geneva Conference in 1954, when the American involvement in Vietnam began. Two chapters are devoted to the negotiations at Geneva and to a comparison of the positions of the United States, North Vietnam, Britain, Communist China, and the Soviet Union. Professor Chen explores the questions: Did the Sino~Vietnamese relationship after World War II assist or hinder the Viet~Minh? Why was the Viet~Minh able to obtain Chinese military aid without inviting massive Chinese intervention, as happened in Korea? What was the Soviet position on the Indochinese war of 1946~1954 and at Geneva? Is there any difference between Vietnam's relations with the weak Nationalist China of the 1940s and those with the powerful Communist regime of the 1950s? In Taiwan Professor Chen obtained access to a large collection of unpublished Chinese official and private documents concerning Sino~Vietnamese relations during the period1940 to 1950. In addition to this material, he makes use of interviews and correspondence with North Vietnamese and Nationalist Chinese officials act ive during the 1930s and the Second World War, supplemented by Vietnamese and Chinese publications and monitored radio broadcasts from party~controlled stations." - from the dj.

COONTS, Stephen. The Intruders. First edition. New York : Pocket Books, (1994). Pp. (8), 1-344. Blue cloth spine with light blue paper covered boards."1973. The skies over Vietnam have finally gone silent. America has pulled out, the war is over. But for Lieutenant Jake Grafton, USN, fresh from two combat cruises and a harrowing shoot-down over Laos, the personal battle i s just beginning. His country has not welcomed him home with open arms, butwith closed minds and closed fists. When his girlfriend's father called hi m a murderer, Jake walked away. But when a stranger in a bar challenged hishonor, the man was not so lucky - the guy landed in the hospital. Jake lan ded in jail. And Grafton's shore-duty commander, who bailed him out, has devised the perfect punishment for his ace flight instructor: and eight-monthcruise on the aircraft carrier Columbia teaching jarheads - Marines - the nuances of carrier aviation. Flying missions over Vietnam was a living hell; now, as a Navy man working side by side with Marines who have no carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell....The Intruders captures as never before the raw fear and exhilaration of military aviation. It is the extraordinary story of peacetime warriors who are never truly at peace: men who run on instinct and adrenaline, whose only target is the horizon and whose only goals are excellence - and survival." -- from dust jacket. Very good in unclipped dust jacket. 15.00
