Amphibious Warfare: Strategy And Tactics From Gallipoli To Iraq
1 Amphibious Warfare: Strategy And Tactics From Gallipoli To Iraq
Amber Books 2014 1782741402 / 9781782741404 HARDCOVER New 
Landing on a hostile beach is one of the most ancient forms and still most difficult forms of warfare. It requires unparalleled levels of planning, organisation, coordination and cooperation between the services. After the disasters of Gallipoli and Zeebrugge in the World War I, amphibious operations reached their maturity in World War II, and were essential in the defeat of Japan, while the D-Day landings signalled the beginning of the end for Hitler. Since 1945, a myriad of expeditionary naval forces have set off for a wide range of destinations, including Korea, Vietnam, the Falkland Islands, Grenada, the Balkans and Iraq in 2003. In the post-Cold War era, amphibious warfare has reached new heights of importance in its ability to intervene rapidly in crisis situations.

The Battle Of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts From The Men Of Task Force Ranger
4 The Battle Of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts From The Men Of Task Force Ranger
Presidio Press 2005 0345459660 / 9780345459664 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
Presidio Press 2005. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. Jacket Condition: none. Small remainder mark “No matter how skilled the writer of nonfiction, you are always getting the story secondhand. Here’s a chance to go right to the source. . . . These men were there.” –MARK BOWDEN (from the Foreword) It started as a mission to capture a Somali warlord. It turned into a disastrous urban firefight and death-defying rescue operation that shocked the world and rattled a great nation. Now the 1993 battle for Mogadishu, Somalia–the incident that was the basis of the book and film Black Hawk Down–is remembered by the men who fought and survived it. Six of the best in our military recall their brutal experiences and brave contributions in these never-before-published, firstperson accounts. “Operation Gothic Serpent,” by Matt Eversmann: As a “chalk” leader, Eversmann was part of the first group of Rangers to “fast rope” from the Black Hawk helicopters. It was his chalk that suffered the first casualty of the battle. “Sua Sponte: Of Their Own Accord,” by Raleigh Cash: Responsible for controlling and directing fire support for the platoon, Cash entered the raging battle in the ground convoy sent to rescue his besieged brothers in arms. “Through My Eyes,” by Mike Kurth: One of only two African Americans in the battle, Kurth confronted his buddies’ deaths, realizing that “the only people whom I had let get anywhere near me since I was a child were gone.” “What Was Left Behind,” by John Belman: He roped into the biggest firefight of the battle and considers some of the mistakes that were made, such as using Black Hawk helicopters to provide sniper cover. “Be Careful What You Wish For,” by Tim Wilkinson: He was one of the Air Force pararescuemen or PJs–the highly trained specialists for whom “That Others May Live” is no catchphrase but a credo–and sums up his incomprehensible courage as “just holding up my end of the deal on a bad day.” “On Friendship and Firefights,” by Dan Schilling: As a combat controller, he was one of the original planners for the deployment of SOF forces to Mogadishu in the spring of 1993. During the battle, he survived the initial assault and carnage of the vehicle convoys only to return to the city to rescue his two closest friends, becoming, literally, “Last Out.” With America’s withdrawal from Somalia an oft-cited incitement to Osama bin Laden, it is imperative to revisit this seminal military mission and learn its lessons from the men who were there and, amazingly, are still here.

Special Forces Survival Techniques, Alexander Stilwell
9 Alexander Stilwell Special Forces Survival Techniques
Apple Press 2014 1845435575 / 9781845435578 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Special Forces are trained to take on the toughest missions in the world's most challenging environments. They stand apart from regular military forces because of the extent and variety of their training and their ability to master any situation. This book is a practical guide to their training and unique skills. In order to complete their missions successfully, Special Forces soldiers must escape dangers specific to each environment, and use the land they are in not only to survive, but to evade capture. They often have to operate in remote areas, for example when monitoring the movement of enemy missile units in the desert or intercepting insurgents in the jungle. Special Forces need to be able to master extreme environments. Special Forces soldiers are also trained to learn from and respect people who are native to particular environments, whether it is the Inuit people of the arctic, the Bedouin of the desert, or the Dayaks of the Borneo jungle. This book will provide an insight into those native skills. Special Forces Survival Techniques is about the inside knowledge and key survival training that helps Special Forces to carry out their missions in extreme environments around the world, or to escape from danger and fight another day. You do not have to be in the Special Forces to benefit from learning their skills. Apart from dealing with often complex and demanding missions that require extreme skill and determination, Special Forces must also be able to survive in any environment. This includes arctic, mountain, desert, and jungle environments. This book is divided into chapters with skills that are particular to each environment

Berlin 1945 : The Final Reckoning, Bam, Karl F.
16 Bam, Karl F. Berlin 1945 : The Final Reckoning
2014 1782741356 / 9781782741350 HARDCOVER New 
Berlin 1945: The Final Reckoning begins with a study of the background to the battle and a description of events on the Eastern and Western Fronts before the Soviet forces reached Berlin. The city’s strategic importance to the German war effort and morale is considered, along with factors that caused the Western Allies to halt their advance on the Elbe rather than race the soviet troops to the Reichstag. The German forces available for Berlin’s defense and their actual defensive preparations (or lack of them) are covered in depth, as is the devastating destruction caused by the ceaseless Allied bombing and remorseless shelling by the Soviet forces. The book describes in words and graphic pictures how, in a city reduced to rubble, a bitter hand-to-hand struggle developed between fanatical Nazis, SS troopers, old men and young boys of the Hitler Youth and the hard-bitten Soviet front-line troops bent on revenge. The suffering of the soldiers and civilians are revealed in full detail, with personal accounts from those involved in the battle.
