Hawker launches an all-out assault on the world’s most powerful arms dealer For Con Ye Cwong, the Vietnam War will never be over. Head of the North Vietnamese secret police during the brutal conflict, he has built himself an empire selling cocaine and heroin to the West. Even after the war, American servicemen remain his favorite targets. He relishes nothing more than getting a soldier hooked, and then upping the price until the junkie has no choice but to reveal military secrets for the next fix. When he isn’t pushing drugs or conning soldiers, Cwong is an arms dealer, supplier to the most dangerous terrorists in the Middle East. He’s one of the most powerful men in the world, and James Hawker is going to take him down. Hawker’s one-man war against terrorism has taken him around the globe, but he won’t know peace until Cwong is dead and buried. To save the United States, the nation’s deadliest vigilante will take on the Viet Cong. Operation Norfolk is the 11th book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Everyone is talking about food. Chefs are celebrities. "Locavore" and "freegan" have earned spots in the dictionary. Popular books and films about food production and consumption are exposing the unintended consequences of the standard American diet. Questions about the principles and values that ought to guide decisions about dinner have become urgent for moral, ecological, and health-related reasons. In Philosophy Comes to Dinner, twelve philosophers—some leading voices, some inspiring new ones—join the conversation, and consider issues ranging from the sustainability of modern agriculture, to consumer complicity in animal exploitation, to the pros and cons of alternative diets.

The true story of a little-known, yet remarkable World War II operation, which had all the hallmarks of a suicide mission. Beginning with a crazy plan hatched by a suspect prince, and an even crazier reliance on the word of the Nazis, Operation Chowhound was devised. Between May 1 and May 8, 1945, 2,268 military units flown by the USAAF, dropped food to 3.5 million starving Dutch civilians in German-occupied Holland. It took raw courage to fly on Operation Chowhound, as American aircrews never knew when the German AAA might open fire on them or if Luftwaffe fighters might jump them. Flying at 400 feet, barely above the tree tops, with guns pointed directly at them, they would have no chance to bail out if their B-17s were hit—and yet, over eight days, 120,000 German troops kept their word, and never fired on the American bombers. As they flew, grateful Dutch civilians spelled out "Thanks Boys" in the tulip fields below. Many Americans who flew in Operation Chowhound would claim it was the best thing they did in the war. In this gripping narrative, author Stephen Dando-Collins takes the reader into the rooms where Operation Chowhound was born, into the aircraft flying the mission, and onto the ground in the Netherlands with the civilians who so desperately needed help. James Bond creator Ian Fleming, Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn, as well as Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Churchill all play a part in this story, creating a compelling, narrative read.

Insight Into Gandhi S Non Violent Non Co Operation Movement

The freedom struggles the world over aiming at liberty from the foreign yoke have been political in nature and the changes in social institutions, if any, were only incidental having not been originally designed or at best post independence script. In sharp contrast stands the 'Non-violent Non-co-operation movement', launched by Mahatma Gandhi for Swaraj built on the foundation of social reforms - HinduMuslim-Unity, removal of untouchability, empowerment of women, Swadeshi and adherence to non-violence as a policy. Phraseology of the 'Nonco-operation movement', in itself gives the philosophy, purpose and content of the movement. However, without a serious study of the movement the vital point missed by the people in understanding the movement is that non-co-operation with the government (British Raj) presupposed co-operation within ourselves - the freedom fighters regardless of religion, caste or creed. This entailed the evolution of the Constructive Programme - the programme of action for strengthening and sustaining the movement. Attempt has been made in the study to understand how Gandhi succeeded in a short period in bringing much needed solidarity for the movement and Swaraj in the Indian society divided by religion and internal caste conflicts in the majority Hindu community. Gandhi era means 1919-1948 because he launched the movement in 1919, which made Mr. Gandhi - Mahatma Gandhi, and 1948, when he fell to an assailant's bullet and was called the Father of the Nation. Way back in 1917 he prophetically said that 'Only if I die for India shall I know that I was fit to live'. Gandhi era means Gandhi and Gandhi alone in this period. A comprehensive study of the entire period was not possible for an old man of 83 years in a short period. Therefore, the period chosen for this study is 1919-1922 which is the most momentous period of the freedom struggle as also the initial period of the movement to ascertain probability of its success. For this purpose, this objective driven book has been divided in two parts. While the second part deals with the movement in chronological order from the data sieved from the Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi to show that the movement was not only the brainchild of Gandhi but its course and eventual suspension was also decided by him, the second part is more in the nature of analysis for the serious and general readers alike to appreciate objectively the greatness of the leader.

A thrilling account of one of the most important covert operations of World War II In 1943, less than a year before D-Day, nearly three hundred American, British, and French soldiers—shadow warriors—parachuted deep behind enemy lines in France as part of the covert Operation Jedburgh. Working with the beleaguered French Resistance, the "Jeds" launched a stunningly effective guerrilla campaign against the Germans in preparation for the Normandy invasion. Colin Beavan, whose grandfather helped direct Operation Jedburgh for the Office of Strategic Services, draws on scores of interviews with the surviving Jeds and their families to tell the thrilling story of the rowdy daredevils who carried out America's first specialforces missions—forever changing the way Americans wage war.
