The Liberal Invasion of Red State America Audiobook

The Liberal Invasion of Red State America

Author: Kristin B. Tate Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: January 2020

Progressive upper-middle-class urbanites are deserting expensive liberal meccas like New York and San Francisco and flocking to traditionally red states like Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Texas. The result is a sudden, confusing purpling of small-town America. School boards and local governments are being reorganized around the progressive agendas of pushy transplants. Neighborhoods are becoming unrecognizable. And the implications for future Congressional and presidential elections are staggering. Libertarian journalist and rising media-star Kristin Tate traces the great progressive flight from blue cities to red towns, using demographic statistics and alarming on-the-ground anecdotes to present a stunning picture of a nation undergoing a significant transition.

About Face: The Odyssey of an American Warrior Audiobook

About Face: The Odyssey of an American Warrior

Author: David H. Hackworth, Julie Sherman Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: October 2019

Called "everything a twentieth-century war memoir could possibly be" by the New York Times, this national bestseller by Colonel David H. Hackworth presents a vivid and powerful portrait of a life of patriotism. From age fifteen to forty, David Hackworth devoted himself to the US Army and fast became a living legend. In 1971, however, he appeared on television to decry the doomed war effort in Vietnam. With About Face, he has written what many Vietnam veterans have called the most important book of their generation. From Korea to Berlin, from the Cuban missile crisis to Vietnam, Hackworth's story is that of an exemplary patriot, played out against the backdrop of the changing fortunes of America and the American military. It is also a stunning indictment of the Pentagon's fundamental misunderstanding of the Vietnam conflict and of the bureaucracy of self-interest that fueled the war.

A Green Place to Be: The Creation of Central Park Audiobook

A Green Place to Be: The Creation of Central Park

Author: Ashley Benham Yazdani Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: April 2019

In 1858, New York City was growing so fast that new roads and tall buildings threatened to swallow up the remaining open space. The people needed a green place to be-a park with ponds to row on and paths for wandering through trees and over bridges. When a citywide contest solicited plans for creating a park out of barren swampland, Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted put their heads together to create the winning design, and the hard work of making their plans a reality began. By winter, the lake opened for skating. By the next summer, the waterside woodland known as the Ramble opened for all to enjoy. Meanwhile, sculptors, stonemasons, and master gardeners joined in to construct thirty-four unique bridges, along with fountains, pagodas, and band shells, making New York's Central Park a green gift to everyone.

Run to the Sound of the Guns: The True Story of an American Ranger at War in Afghanistan and Iraq Audiobook

Run to the Sound of the Guns: The True Story of an American Ranger at War in Afghanistan and Iraq

Author: Mir Bahmanyar, Nicholas Moore Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: March 2019

Sweeping from frozen mountaintops to dusty city streets, and everything in between, this is the gripping and deeply personal account of an elite Ranger who nearly lost his life 'leading the way' in America's secretive global wars. As part of an elite special operations unit at the fighting edge of the Global War on Terrorism, Nicholas Moore spent over a decade with the U.S. Army's 75th Ranger Regiment on the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq. In this compelling biography, a detailed narrative of grueling life on the ground combines with accounts of some of the most dramatic search and rescue operations of the period to tell the true story of life on the line in the War on Terror. Charting his rise from private to senior non-commissioned officer, this title follows Moore as he embarks on a series of dangerous deployments, engaging in brutal street combat and traversing inhospitable terrain in pursuit of Taliban fighters and Iraq's Most Wanted. Including first-hand accounts of high-profile special operations missions such as the tense rescue of Private First Class Jessica Lynch and the search and rescue mission for U.S. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, Moore recounts, in vivid detail, the realities of life on the front line.

The Vietnam Air War: From The Cockpit Audiobook

The Vietnam Air War: From The Cockpit

Author: Colonel Dennis M. (mike) Ridnouer, Colonel Dennis M. Ridnouer Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: March 2019

The Vietnam War is one of the most misunderstood military conflicts in twentieth-century America. Showcasing seventy-two true stories told by American servicemen who fought from the skies, this unique and historically significant collection is a stunning record of the air war in Southeast Asia during the 1960s and 1970s. There is no political agenda. There is no partisan opinion. There is no romanticizing. These are simply tales from the thick of an endlessly complex conflict, raw and uncut, told directly by the men who were foisted into its napalm- and sweat-soaked clutches. Occasionally funny, sometimes tragic, and often harrowing, these true accounts bring new and personal perspectives to one of the most studied and most maligned wars in America's history, revealing with no Hollywood glamorizing what the war was really like for members of the U.S. Air Force of all ranks and myriad functions who answered the call to fight. They saw no choice but to follow the orders they were given. And for better or for worse, by the time they returned, each of them would be changed forever.
