American Sniper Chris Kyle 2012-01-03 The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster, Academy-Award nominated movie. “An amazingly detailed account of fighting in Iraq--a humanizing, brave story that’s extremely readable.” — PATRICIA CORNWELL, New York Times Book Review "Jaw-dropping...Undeniably riveting." —RICHARD ROEPER, Chicago Sun-Times From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

Michael Gunn As Told to Frances Kane, with R. T. Budd 2020-02-24 “You may think I’m crazy, but the gun actually talks to me,” says Francis Kane, who has agreed to write the autobiography of a gun that had twelve owners. The gun, a.k.a. Michael Gunn, an M-1911 Colt .45 ACP, is a sidearm used by the U.S. military for five-plus decades. Michael fears his usefulness is coming to an end, so he wishes to have his story set to words for posterity. Michael relates the tales of his 12 owners – or “handlers” – as Francis likes to call them. There was the World War I doughboy; a French train engineer; a small French boy during the Nazi occupation; a German Luftwaffe pilot; a WWII American sergeant; a Korean soldier; a USAF Search-Air-Rescue airman in Thailand; the Hispanic gang leader in San Antonio; the young homeless woman from Louisiana; the female SWAT team member in Washington, D.C.; the African-American Philadelphia policeman; and finally, Francis Kane himself. Prior to relating its owners’ stories, Michael spins a lengthy narrative on how its creation came to life.
The Sterling Submachine Gun Matthew Moss 2018-11-29 Designed by a motorcycle racer turned small-arms engineer, George Patchett, the submachine gun that eventually became known as the Sterling was developed during World War II. Some suggest it first saw action during Operation Infatuate with No. 4 Commando, before becoming fully adopted by the British Army in 1953 as the Sterling Machine Carbine (L2A1). It was centre stage for many of Britain's post-colonial conflicts from Malaya to Kenya and from Yemen to Northern Ireland. The silenced L34A1 Sterling-Patchett entered service in 1966 and first saw action deep in the jungles of Vietnam in the hands of the elite special forces of Australia, New Zealand and the United States during prisoner snatches and reconnaissance patrols. Employing first-hand accounts and painstaking technical analysis, this engaging account features carefully selected archive photography and specially commissioned colour artwork depicting the submachine gun that armed British and other forces for nearly 60 years.

The Custom 1911 Bill Loeb 2015-01-02 The 1911 is ambiguous as it is classic. The gun's mission changed over the years. Originally a military sidearm, the 1911 is now a favorite among law enforcement special operation units, military and competitors, as well as those interested in self-defense. While the basic design has changed very little, some brilliant people have advanced John Browning's classic and brought it into a new century. This book offers some amazing behind-the-scenes insight about the makers of Nighthawk, Kimber, Wilson Combat, to name a few. Great shooters like Julie Golob, Bruce Piatt and Chip McCormick shared their personal stories. Ted Nugent and Razor Dobbs also make appearances as 1911 hunters. These 1911 stars also shared their practical advice which Bill shares with the reader. Bill Loeb's writing style is concise yet sometimes irreverent, but always fresh and entertaining.

Brothers of the Cloth George Hand, IV 2021-04-15 Master Sergeant (Ret.) George E. "Chik" Hand IV, better known as geo to the public. geo served for 10 years with the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, colloquially known as Delta Force. As the U.S. Army's premier counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and direct action Special Missions Unit (SMU), Delta Force has been at the tip of the spear of the American military ever since the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979. To serve there, a man has to climb physical and mental mountains; to remain there, a man has to show remarkable consistency and professionalism. Before his assignment to Delta, geo served in the 7th and 1st Special Forces Groups as a Green Beret.A rare wordsmith, geo is a master of the English language. But, it takes more than that to create a compelling memoir, especially one so heavily focused on others. Indeed, it takes empathy and emotional intellect. By empathizing with his subjects, geo puts you right next to them. You can see them breaching a door; you can smell their sweat after an operation; you can hear the radio chatter and the Little Bird helicopters whooping above; you can sense the joke that's about to crack and send everyone rolling; you can feel the pain of loss and the emptiness that death carves. That's why readers of all ages and walks of life rally around his stories.

Pre-Incident Indicators of Terrorist Incidents Brent L. Smith 2011-01 This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Explores whether sufficient data exists to examine the temporal and spatial relationships that existed in terrorist group planning, and if so, could patterns of preparatory conduct be identified? About one-half of the terrorists resided, planned, and prepared for terrorism relatively close to their eventual target. The terrorist groups existed for 1,205 days from the first planning meeting to the date of the actual/planned terrorist incident. The planning process for specific acts began 2-3 months prior to the terrorist incident. This study examined selected terrorist groups/incidents in the U.S. from 1980-2002. It provides for the potential to identify patterns of conduct that might lead to intervention prior to the commission of the actual terrorist incidents. Illustrations.
