Dirty Thirty Book Excerpt:

Dirty Thirty By: Billie Proffitt With a plethora of experiences by her late twenties, Billie Proffitt still felt overwhelmed by the pressure of deciding what she wanted. Raised that well-being is more valuable than the “should’s” of society, she examined not only the roads less traveled, but also the ones that nobody else saw. Her willingness to forge on even as these were littered with pitfalls, paint these non-chronological stories which make up the thirty most important lessons she learned by thirty. Believing as author Natalie Babbitt suggested, that it isn’t death to be feared, “but rather the unlived life,” this gifted storyteller marks the up’s, down’s, backward and eventual steps forward in life that span the range of human emotions. Billie is a bright, quirky, honest young woman who captures the beauty of the human condition with passion and humor - insight and determination. Dirty Thirty doesn’t evoke wistful regret for life’s lost opportunities, but instead inspires reaching toward the great days ahead that yet have to be lived.

The odd and endearing characters of ‘The Dirty Thirty’ and the strict ‘military minds’ of the Lifers, will give you a glimpse of the real Vietnam experience. Jolt at the realization that the NVA was not an ‘Evil Empire’, but a military force with a ‘cause’ and a heartfelt dedication among its soldiers. Be sad at the plights of individual U.S. soldiers at the mercy of the ‘Military Machine’. Be proud of the sacrifices made by the men and women of both sides during the 10,000 Day War. ‘The Dirty Thirty’ gives a day to day account of what life was really like on the fire bases in the jungles and hills of Vietnam and Cambodia in 1969-1970.

The Dirty Thirty Book Excerpt:

The Dirty Thirty is a friendly little workbook that will help you learn--and teach--some of the most useful (and most misused) words in our language. Words are like people--they can cause confusion, or bring pleasure. And sometimes the same words can do both. That's especially true of the tricky terms in The Dirty Thirty. We see them misused again and again, even by intelligent people who write and speak well. These words usually come in pairs (like affect-effect, who-whom, and stationery-stationary). They often look and sound a lot alike (capitol-capital), and they may be related in meaning (emigrate-immigrate). So it's no surprise that even professionals sometimes have trouble keeping them straight. This book will show you how. It focuses on words that we most need to know about--the ones that come up fairly often in speech and writing, and that competent users of our language are expected to know. You'll get clear explanations of the differences, and do short practice exercises to help you confirm that you understand and can use the words. And the format of The Dirty Thirty, with its clear explanation and short exercises, makes it an excellent teaching tool.

Airpower in Small Wars Book Excerpt:

The use of airpower in wartime calls to mind the massive bombings of World War II, but airplanes have long been instrumental in small wars as well. Ever since its use by the French to put down rebellious Moroccan tribes in 1913, airpower has been employed to fight in limited but often lengthy small conflicts around the globe. This is the first comprehensive history of airpower in small wars-conflicts pitting states against non-state groups such as insurgents, bandits, factions, and terrorists-tracing it from the early years of the twentieth century to the present day. It examines dozens of conflicts with strikingly different scenarios: the Greek Civil War, the Philippine Anti-Huk campaign, French and British colonial wars, the war in South Vietnam before the American escalation, counterinsurgency in southern Africa, Latin American counterguerrilla operations, and counterinsurgency and counterterrorist campaigns in the Middle East over the last four decades. For each war, the authors describe the strategies employed on both sides of the conflict, the air forces engaged, and the specific airpower tactics employed. They discuss the ground campaigns and provide the political background necessary to understand the air campaigns, and in each case they judge the utility of airpower in its broadest sense. In their historic sweep, they show how forms of airpower evolved from planes to police helicopters, aircraft of the civilian air reserve, and today's unmanned aircraft. They also disclose how small wars after World War II required new strategies, operational solutions, and tactics. By taking this broad view of small-war airpower, the authors are able to make assessments about the most effective and least effective means of employing airpower. They offer specific conclusions ranging from the importance of comprehensive strategy to the need for the United States and its allies to expand small-wars training programs. Airpower in Small Wars will be invaluable for educating military professionals and policy makers in the subject as well as for providing a useful framework for developing more effective doctrine for employing airpower in the conflicts we are most likely to see in the twenty-first century.

But when a devastating typhoon hits Tokyo, Rei is trapped with the object of her investigation—and with much much more than the fate of an ancient pitcher at risk.
