The Soldiers' Story: Vietnam in Their Own Words Audiobook

The Soldiers' Story: Vietnam in Their Own Words

Author: Ron Steinman Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: December 2016

Most history-minded Americans have discussed the Vietnam War, becoming familiar, at the very least, with the names of such pivotal events as the Siege of Khe Sanh, the Tet Offensive, and the Fall of Saigon. But to grasp the full impact of this agonizing conflict, the human costs of an infernal war that raged for ten years and took more than 58,000 American lives, one must hear about it from the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who experienced the fighting and endured. In The Soldiers' Story, veteran journalist Ron Steinman gathers the candid reminiscences of seventy-six men who survived combat in Vietnam. Not a military analysis or political study, this oral history vividly conveys the hardships, friendships, fears, and personal triumphs of Marine, Army, Air Force, and Navy veterans-each of whom shares memories that have lingered to this day. It is a valuable frontline record of battle-torn Vietnam from the perspective of those who lived it first-hand, giving us a window into the horror, intensity, and raw courage that the war engendered. "Ranks among the most vivid accounts of the war." -Stanley Karnow "Their stories are as dangerous as the battles they fought-stunning, plain-spoken recollections that reveal the terror of combat and theperils of a far-off war and the folly of government policy." - New York Newsday "A powerful book that brings to life the triumphs and tragedies experienced by American soldiers in Vietnam. This excellent compilation belongs on every Vietnam bookshelf." -Publishers Weekly

Vietnam: A History Audiobook

Vietnam: A History

Author: Stanley Karnow Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: January 2007

In this comprehensive history, Stanley Karnow demystifies the tragic ordeal of America's war in Vietnam. The book's central theme is that America's leaders, prompted as much by domestic politics as by global ambitions, carried the United States into Southeast Asia with little regard for the realities of the region. Karnow elucidates the decision-making process in Washington and Asia and recounts the political and military events that occurred after the Americans arrived in Vietnam. Throughout, he focuses on people, those who shaped strategy and those who suffered, died, or survived as a result. Panoramic in scope and filled with fresh revelations drawn from secret documents and from exclusive interviews with hundreds of participants on both sides, Vietnam: A History transcends the past with lessons relevant to the present and future. "This is history writing at its best."-Chicago Sun Times

The Gathering Audiobook

The Gathering

Author: William X. Kienzle Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: August 2003

Way back in the 1940s, they had all been young together. Inseparable pals Mike and Manny, both preparing for the priesthood . . . Mike's beautiful twin sister, Rose, and her best friend Alice, sharing a dream of becoming nuns . . . shy altar boy Stanley and everybody's good friend, Bob Koesler, also headed for the priesthood. Six Detroit adolescents moving step by measured step into the bosom of the church. Or so they believed. Now, more than fifty years later, one of the six has died a sudden, violent death, and Father Bob Koesler-these days a retired parish priest-is sadly suspicious that someone in this tiny band of lifelong friends may be responsible. But who and why? Before long, Koesler has reason to believe he knows the shocking answer. . . .

Silent Night: The Story of the World War I Christmas Truce

Author: Stanley Weintraub Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: August 2003

In the beginning months of World War I, a very strange thing happened. After the fierce trench warfare of November and December, on Christmas Eve, 1914, the fighting spontaneously stopped.

They buried the dead, exchanged presents, and even played soccer together.

Marlon Brando Audiobook

Marlon Brando

Author: Patricia Bosworth Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: October 2001

Following his development from moody Oklahoma teenager to the method-trained star to the eccentric recluse of his later years, Patricia Bosworth offers a penetrating look at Marlon Brando's evolving persona: the volcanic Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire, the sensitive rebel in The Wild Ones, the iconic Don Corleone in The Godfather. Bosworth probes Brando's alcoholic parents' influence on his acting, his decades of psychoanalysis, and his tumultuous personal relationships. Here, from rebellious unknown to reluctant idol to falling star, is the complex charismatic genius who changed the face of acting.

The Big Enchilada Audiobook

The Big Enchilada

Author: Stuart P. Stevens Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: October 2001

Have you ever wondered how George W. Bush got to be President? Writer, political strategist, and Bush campaign worker Stuart Stevens takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Bush presidential campaign. He shows us the hidden moments in the small towns of Texas which added up to success for the former Major League Baseball owner: the humble Bush practicing his speeches in a small Methodist church in Crawford, Texas; the blue-jeaned Bush, hoping for a chance to "bond" with his strategists; the innocent Bush, convinced he would win despite overwhelming odds and an opponent who was counting on them. With humor, Stevens relays hair-raising tales of the campaign trail.

The Sacrifice Audiobook

The Sacrifice

Author: William X. Kienzle Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: April 2001

EXPLOSIVE OFFERINGS Precisely when the solemn ceremony receiving renegade Episcopal priest Father George Wheatley into the Roman Catholic priesthood is set to begin, a bomb explodes under the altar. Fortunately Father Wheatley arrives late, but poor old Father Farmer dies in the tragedy. Father Wheatley’s switch to the Roman church has certainly stirred up murderous passions in the parish. His son and daughter–one already an Episcopal priest, the other studying to become one–are seething. Conservative Catholics are enraged by the very idea of a married priest. As blind prejudice, jealousy, and thwarted ambition swirl around St. Joseph’s, that shrewd sleuth Father Koesler meditates on one question: Who placed the phone call that made Father Wheatley late for his own murder?

Till Death Audiobook

Till Death

Author: William X. Kienzle Narrator: Edward Holland Release Date: April 2000

For years, a little group of priests and nuns have struggled together to recover from the rule of virtual slavery imposed upon them by tyrannical Father Angelico, now thankfully gone to his reward. But for some of them the group is no longer a godsend. The ties that once bound beloved Father Rick Casserly, beautiful former nun Dora Ricardo, defrocked priest Jerry Anderson, and warm and lovely school principal Lil Niedermier unshakably to their church are becoming dangerously frayed by the human passions their faith denies them. No one foresees the terrible events that will soon leave one of them dead, and only Father Koesler, in the wisdom of his seventy years, grasps the shocking truth. . . .
