America is winning in Iraq! Yes, you read that correctly. How you ask? Thats what Shooting Straight How the American Led Coalition is Winning the War in Iraq answers. Shane Clapper has spoken directly with soldiers who have been there and witnessed the blood shed and the carnage of war. Yet they have also seen the good that is coming out of the liberation process. Their accounts on how the people of Iraq, their mission, and the future of Iraqi democracy look like are entirely different than what one gets on the evening news. This is their story. From the fall of Baghdad, to Beanie Babies becoming the new Iraqi fad. From the excitement of reality TV becoming a hit within the country, to Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction. Clapper co vers it all from front to back and beyond. As a doctor serving in Iraq, Lieutenant Colonel Gary Morsch put it, What you see graphically on television is only a sliver of the whole pie. The media is not giving you the big picture, or the whole truthThe fact is there are far more people who appreciate and respect Americans than youd guess by watching TV. In fact, those who oppose our presence are a very small minority? Sure there are bombings and beheadings in Iraq. Sure lots of American and Iraqis have died in the conflict. Yet there are immense signs of progress, from education, to business opportunities, to reconstruction, to womens rights, and in even of all areas sports. The list is long on the good things that are going on in Iraq. Shooting Straight How the American Led Coalition is Winning the War in Iraq shows what television, most newspapers, and even President Bush has failed to do. It tells why we are winning in Iraq. From facts and figures, to quotesfrom Iraqis and American soldiers, to stories that will warm your heart. Shooting Straight will get behind the fiction

A fascinating insight into Breaker Morant and the question of morality and human life. The question of "The Breaker's" innocence is still being fiercely debated more than a century after Lieutenant Harry Morant and Lieutenant Peter Handcock were shot on a lonely veldt outside Pretoria at dawn on 27 February, 1902, by a British military firing squad. Shoot Straight, You Bastards! is a universal account of greed, ambition and the power of the political machine that crushes anyone who gets in the way. In much the same way that Bruce Beresford's award-winning feature film Breaker Morant captured the popular imagination, Shoot Straight, You Bastards! is an explosive read, as controversial an event today as it was 101 years ago. In every war there is a character like Morant - a rebellious spirit who ends up on the wrong side of the "great cause". This updated edition includes an appendix containing dramatic new evidence that Kitchener gave orders to "take no prisoners". Expert legal opinion supporting the Breaker's innocence and a strong campaign to secure a proper judicial review combine here in a story Australians have waited more than a century to read!

New York Times bestseller: A novel of a messy mob war in Brooklyn that “makes you laugh out loud” (Chicago Sun-Times). Kid Sally Palumbo has been a loyal servant to the Brooklyn Mafia for years. His specialty is murder, and he is so skilled at it that he has gotten the attention of Mafia boss Papa Baccala. But unfortunately for Kid Sally, murder pays poorly. He wants to make real dough, to get respect, and to be able to tell his colleagues where to sit when they eat dinner. In short, he wants to be boss. The job would be his for the taking—if only Kid Sally weren’t a Grade A moron. To keep Sally from stirring up trouble, Baccala tosses him an easy assignment: Organize a bicycle race through Brooklyn, and keep the profits. Kid Sally bungles it, setting off a turf war that quickly engulfs the borough. The dimwitted mobsters are masters in the art of murder, and they are about to put on a show. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jimmy Breslin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
