Walker, David P. Staff Sergeant
This book tells a one-of-a-kind story of resilience and determination in the Vietnam War. It is written in a no-holds-barred, from-the-gut style. In January 1968, barely a month after arriving in Vietnam as part of an elite long range patrol (LRP) team, Dave Walker received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye. Medically discharged and sent home, Walker - now missing an eye - manoeuvred his way back into the army and back to Vietnam in 1970. Battle-hardened, aggressive, and courageous, he served another eighteen months with the best of the best, conducting patrols and special operations in the Central Highlands. 217pp. N.B. Top right corner of front cover slightly creased.

Whelan, Richard
Slight crease to the spine. Slight crease to head of d/j spine. The author describes the causes, events and consequences of a conflict he calls "a world war in miniature". He addresses such questions as why the Truman administration decided to intrude militarily in Korea after merely protesting when Eastern Europe and China fell to the communists, why the United States risked causing World War III to save a repressive regime and why the Americans settled for something less than the resounding victory they had come to expect. In Whelan's analysis, the war had momentous repercussions for NATO, the UN, Russia, China and the arms race. And it provided the prologue to America's next war in Asia - Vietnam. 428pp.
