  • Prodigals

    During his first tour in Vietnam – 1967-68 – Dick Taylor was a well trained and highly motivated amateur assigned to advise a hard-bitten ARVN infantry battalion working in the mud and streams of IV Corps.

    For the next two years, Taylor earned a Ranger tab, served on a division staff, and schooled on. He met a woman, and married her days before he returned to Vietnam.

  • The First Jihad

    The First Jihad tells the story of Muhammad Ahmad, a Muslim religious leader in Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, and the uprising he led against British and Egyptian forces in the late nineteenth century.

    In 1881, Ahmad declared himself the Mahdi- the ‘Expected One' - and travelled through Sudan, gathering support for his jihad. Initially, the Egyptian-Ottoman authorities did not take the rebellion seriously.

  • Surrounded By Heroes

    • Full account of the movements of an Airborne division during World War IIWritten by a soldier in the heart of the decision making process

    When the author was inducted into the US Army in 1942 he had no idea that typists and draftsmen were in short supply and that he would be quickly snatched up by the G-3 (Operations) Section of the 82nd Airborne. The author thus gained a ringside seat for some of the greatest campaigns of World War II.

As Gebhart tells it, he was a ‘smart-mouthed college boy' who joined the Marines to see the world and ‘dust a few black pajamas for Uncle Sam.' Two gruelling tours of duty later (1965-1967) he returned home as a sergeant after surviving 240 combat... Learn More

    In 1965 the tanks of 3rd Platoon, B Company, 3rd Tank Battalion landed on a beach near Da Nang, drawing unwelcome attention to America's first, almost covert, commitment of ground troops in South Vietnam. As the Marine Corps presence grew, the 1st and 3rd Tank Battalions, as well as elements of the reactivated 5th Tank Battalion, were committed to the conflict.
