      Sun Tzu said: In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment or a company entire than to destroy them.

Loomis, Editor Random House (NY) $ (p) A country made by war book   Nobody but a Vietnam War (in country) veteran could have written this book.

Indeed, Nelson DeMille was an Army First Louie ina very troubled time for our country and the world. According to his web site, he returned for a nostalgic tour of Vietnam just a few years ago, and from that trip was hatched this book.4/5.

This is a list of fictional countries from published works of fiction (books, films, television series, games, etc.). Fictional works describe all the countries in the following list as located somewhere on the surface of the Earth as we know it – as opposed to underground, inside the planet, on another world, or during a different "age" of the planet with a different physical geography.

Free shipping over $Cited by:   While O’Brien’s book made me feel that I was being given a glimpse into what it must have felt like to be in his shoes, eventually I wanted to know more about one of the most contentious wars the United States has been involved in, a war in which we sent young men to die against their will, a war in which our country did a less than admirable job understanding the peoples they were Author: Tracy Shapley.

All that said, this book is a beautiful love story and is also quite funny. It might be weird to admit this but if I recall correctly the book nearly made me cry — seriously. This book may be “about” war, but it is, like most of these books, mostly about people.

Knight’s Cross: A. Never at War: Why Democracies Will Not Fight One Another is a book by the historian and physicist Spencer R.

Weart published by Yale University Press in It examines political and military conflicts throughout human history and finds no exception to one of the claims made by the controversial democratic peace theory: well-established liberal democracies have never made war on one : Spencer R.

Weart. Wow. NationofChange contributing writer Tom Engelhardt just came out with a new book about the United States’ never-ending wars and what they mean for our future: A Nation Unmade by War. If you read Tom’s articles here on NationofChange or on his website, TomDispatch, then you’ll be familiar with his no-nonsense, informative style, and you’ll thoroughly enjoy his no-holds-barred.

[Geoffrey Perret]. Directed by Tom Harper. With Ben Chaplin, Phoebe Fox, Shaun Evans, Sophie Okonedo. Eight UK government officials act out their potential response and decisions in a simulated war game scenario in which escalation of nuclear threat between India and Pakistan leads to nuclear war and quite likely the end of the world/10().

The Vietnam War has left many legacies. Among the most positive is an abundance of top-notch books, many written by veterans of the conflict. These include winners of National Book Awards and Pulitzer Prizes, both fiction and nonfiction.

A slew of war memoirs stand with the best writing of that genre. In the short history of Vietnam War. WAR BOOK takes place over three days as nine civil servants gather to take part in a policy shaping scenario. They are there to take decisions on Britain's reaction to an international nuclear attack%.

The War That Made America by Fred Anderson could just as easily been subtitled "Everything You Wanted To Know About The French And Indian War But Were Afraid To Ask." Indeed, though the actual subtitle calls the book “A Short History of the French and Indian War,” it is a pretty thorough one that is both well-written and well-researched.

As a historian, he has written several books namely, The Dominion of War: Empire and Liberty in North America (); with author, Andrew Cayton, Crucible of War: The Seven Years’ War and the Fate of Empire in British North America (); and his recently published book, The War That Made America: A Short History of the French and Indian War.
