Quicklet on Chuck Pfarrer's SEAL Target Geronim...

ABOUT THE BOOK Chuck Pfarrers book is a departure from the norm. It claims to be the first authoritative, inside account of legendary Navy SEAL Team Six, a group so elite that fellow SEALs call them Jedis. It is also the first time details of a SEAL operation have been made public. Previously, such information was secret. Because the SEAL Teams were created, along with the Armys Green Berets, at the direction of President John F. Kennedy, this book breaks a silence held dear by SEAL personnel for half a century. Not everyone approves. US Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye has said... Its just not true. Its not how it happened. Even more accusatory, Nye also says its a lie and factually far off the mark. MEET THE AUTHOR Tom Szollosi graduated from UCLA in 1972 with a degree in English Literature. After a short stint in advertising, he wrote for television beginning in 1976, and has continued to the present, logging over 100 episodes of both drama and comedy. Tom has also written five motion pictures, four novels, and taught screenwriting at UCLA Extension for six years. Tom loves baseball, writing, books, and politics, though not necessarily in that order. Most recently, he has been exploring the world of e-books. He is married, has two sons, and lives in Los Angeles. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The training period to earn a Navy SEAL qualification of combat swimmer, is two-and-a-half years. In addition to this, SEAL Team Six operators have decades of experience, all of which came to use at Abbotabad, Pakistan, on May 1, 2011. On this date, Navy SEALs leaped from helicopters into the high-walled compound of Osama bin Laden. No one in Abbotabad imagined Osama bin Laden was being interdicted, because no one knew he lived there. Nearby, the large military base where many of Pakistans highest ranking officers were stationed was caught unaware. Their secret guest had been found.

Utmost Gallantry

Focusing on the oceanic war rather than the war in the Great Lakes, this study charts the War of 1812 from the perspectives of the two opposing navies at sea-one of the largest fleets in the world and a small, upstart navy just three decades old. While American naval leadership searched for a means of contesting Britain's naval dominance, the English sought to destroy the U.S. Navy and protect its oceanic highways. Instead of describing battles between opposing warships, McCranie evaluates entire cruises by American and British men-of-war, noting both successes and failures and how they translated into broader strategies. In the process, his study becomes a history of how the two navies fought the oceanic war, linking high-level governmental decisions about strategy to the operational use of fleets in the Atlantic and Caribbean and from the South Pacific to the Indian Ocean. Unlike other books on the subject, this work offers a balanced appraisal of the oceanic war on the high seas, taking into account the strategic considerations of both combatants and how the leadership from each side assessed, planned, and implemented operational concepts. Drawing on a wealth of British and American archival sources, McCranie guides the reader through the strategic decision making processes on both sides of the Atlantic. He demonstrates vividly the impact of those decisions on the course of the war at sea, where the contest was close and deadly. Indeed, the author's action-packed accounts of battles hold special appeal. This study offers a more balanced appraisal of the war than most studies of the topic. Particularly important is the stress on understanding British strategic imperatives and the correlation between these imperatives and why Britain conducted the oceanic naval war in the manner it did. This study focuses on all cruises of American warships, not just those that terminated in battles so as to provide a more complete history of the naval war.

World-renowned fundraising guru Stan Levenson takes readers on a loving and carefree thirty-year journey of memorable misadventures -- propelled solely by his own determination and sheer chutzpah -- starting in Depression era Brooklyn and continuing a lifestyle that crisscrossed the continent and the globe helping others. The book chronicles a 30-year journey through Brooklyn neighborhoods rich in history and culture, the Borscht Belt of the Catskills, small college towns in upstate New York, military duty in the United States Navy, and a lifestyle that crisscrossed a continent and the globe. Through sheer grit, determination and chutzpah, Levenson attended college, earned advanced degrees including a Ph.D., and transformed fundraising in the public schools. By his own admission, Levenson's early Brooklyn years were far from auspicious. A self-proclaimed &quote;goof-off,&quote; the author had little aspiration other than to immerse himself in games of basketball, stickball and punchball on the streets of Brooklyn and questionable capers at Coney Island. With remarkable moxie he managed to survive one of the roughest vocational high schools in New York City before embarking on a multitude of adventures that would take him around the country and across the globe. When Brooklyn Was Heaven will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will evoke a sense of nostalgia, and it will help to establish an historical perspective of the times. It is a must read for anyone with a New York connection, those who are fascinated by this joyful place, and all others who are intrigued by all the places &quote;in-between.&quote; Stan Levenson in the author of four books in education, including Big-Time Fundraising for Today's Schools (Corwin Press, 2007), How to Get Grants and Gifts for the Public Schools (Allyn & Bacon, 2002), Readings in Foreign Languages for the Elementary School (Blaisdell/Ginn), and Exciting Bulletin Board Ideas for Reading and Language Arts (T.S. Denison & Co.). His articles have appeared in American School Board Journal, Principal Leadership, The School Administrator, the English Journal, TESOL Quarterly, Hispania, and more.
