♥ Book Title : We Were Warriors Once
☯ Full Synopsis : "We Were Warriors Once is a military-political suspense novel. It chronicles the careers of four officers from the 1960s to the 1990s. Military promotions are based on an up-or-out systemyou either progress within specified time frames or you get left behind. Many officers who retire from their military careers at the Pentagon go through the revolving door and return in short order either as defense contract employees or civil servants. Not infrequently, they return to the same office where they worked before retiring. The same holds true for many political appointees. Men who once worked in Washington go off for a period to high-level assignments with defense contractors and return to influential positions in government. These revolving doors can sometimes have unintended negative consequences. President, and former five-star general, Dwight D. Eisenhowers warning against the power of the military-industrial complex is well known. However, that complex is actually tri-foldmilitary, industrial, and political. We Were Warriors Once incorporates revised editions of two previously published novels, Duty and Character and Wrong Enemy, Wrong War, with entirely new material that plumbs deeper into the defense contractors influence on national defense policies. The officers who wear the uniforms of the United States armed forces are by in large extraordinarily dedicated men and women. But in the profession of war, sometimes even the best are tempted at times to stray from the straight and narrow."Article| Jeffrey M. Freeman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : We Were Warriors
☯ Full Synopsis : "'An adrenalin-fuelled, gritty story of heroism on the frontline in Afghanistan' Andy McNabThe rounds were single shot from the same two enemy positions, trying to pick me off. They were kicking up the dirt around me. Then all hell broke loose as the gunship's Gatling vomited ammo right over my head. The sound was deafening. It was now or never. I got up and ran. A captain in 29 Commando, Johnny Mercer served in the army for twelve years. On his third tour of Afghanistan he was a Joint Fires Controller, with the pressurized job of bringing down artillery and air strikes in close proximity to his own troops. Based in an area of northern Helmand that was riddled with Taliban leaders, he walked into danger with every patrol, determined to protect them. Then one morning, in brutal close quarter combat, everything changed . . . In We Were Warriors Johnny takes us from his commando training to the heat, blood and chaos of battle. With brutal honesty, he describes what it is like to risk your life every day, pushing through the fear that follows watching your friends die. He took the fight back to the enemy with a relentless efficiency that came at a high personal cost. Back in the UK, seeing the inadequate care available for veterans and their families, he was inspired to run for Parliament in the hope he could improve their plight. Unflinching, action-packed and laced with wry humour, We Were Warriors is a compelling read."Article| Johnny Mercer| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Les Guerilleres
☯ Full Synopsis : "One of the most widely read feminist texts of the twentieth century, and Monique Wittig’s most popular novel, Les Guérillères imagines the attack on the language and bodies of men by a tribe of warrior women. Among the women’s most powerful weapons in their assault is laughter, but they also threaten literary and linguistic customs of the patriarchal order with bullets. In this breathtakingly rapid novel first published in 1969, Wittig animates a lesbian society that invites all women to join their fight, their circle, and their community. A path-breaking novel about creating and sustaining freedom, the book derives much of its energy from its vaunting of the female body as a resource for literary invention."Article| Monique Wittig| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : We Were Warriors:
☯ Full Synopsis : "This transcript is a synthesis of two remarkable Ways which have influenced me profoundly. The first and most important Way, [Do], in my mind being 'Bushido - The Way of the Warrior' for which I have held an avid interest since I was eleven years old (1971), and which I can only say I 'aspire' to make a part of my everyday Way. I believe that my interest in Bushido has not only stood me in good stead for service to the SPS, my Uji (Clan), and the Joo Heika (Her Majesty the Queen), but has also served me well in my personal life. The second significant Do, [Way], was 17 years later when I was established as an Officer into the ranks of the Scottish Prison Service, [September 1988]. I gave the SPS almost 20 years loyal service. In these Makimonos (Scrolls) I will aspire to describe the mind-set of both these warrior ways and their connection. A Samurai, by definition of his lifestyle, chose immediacy as a core principle. In close parallel, the SPS Officer also embraces the Samurai Way of 'immediacy'. For if he made a wrong decision, riotous consequences could very well be the result. In the following pages I shall aspire to capture the difficult path both the Samurai and the Warrior Officer, [chose to], tread. During the tenure I was assigned duty at HMP Shotts (Castle Shotts), staff were faced with many quiet routine days. In stark contrast, we also dealt with numerous demonstrations, sit-down protests, hunger-strikes, self-harmers, staff and prisoner (shuujin) assaults, as well as riots and staff hostage situations. For a Samurai, to know and to act are ostensibly one and the same; the Warrior Officer also faced this basic correctness of 'The Way' and, had to actually 'Act' upon it. This text is about the individual officer, how he felt, and managed to pull through the many difficulties thrust upon him daily, as well as what made him return to such an arduous duty whilst being well aware of the possibilities of what lay ahead of him. To those who have never walked this walk, it can evoke a 'Fear' of sorts which is simply the bodies natural response mechanism to emotional stimuli. It is a sign of the body reacting to a perceived or actual physical stimulus; the key point is, it is a normal reaction everyone experiences under similar conditions. Many others have tread this trail prior to me and my modern peers, and there will be many more to follow when I and other Warrior Officers are long gone. Possibly my lifelong interest in Bushido, together with my time in the SPS both contributed to bringing to the fore my viewpoint of us being Warrior Officers. Regardless, I wholeheartedly feel this is how all officers of the SPS should feel, and I believe, be regarded as by the general public. Hindsight, the great teacher, [O-Sensei], that it is, affirms to me that when serving at Citadel Shotts, Lanarkshire, in central Scotland, when riots and demonstrations were in abundance (1988-1993), it was the single most camaraderie-working environment I have ever had the privilege to have been associated with alongside my fellow Officers. The Esprit-De-Corps was both magnificent and unparalleled. I had never experienced such an inspirational workforce previously, nor have I since at any other castle, or indeed in any other workplace. This is The Way of the Warrior Officer."Article| G. Nelson| Statement ..."
