3 Americans at War, 1975-1986: An Era of Violent Peace Bolger, Daniel P.
Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1988 Presidio. Date/'Gift' inkstamps on front free endpaper. Small remainder mark at bottom. Otherwise very clean; light wear. 466pp, Index, Bibliography, B/W photos, maps. Language: English. 'In response to critics who picture the post-Vietnam defense establishment as a hobbled giant, over-technologized and ineptly led, Bolger argues that the U.S. armed forces have been ready, willing and able to fight creditably when called upon. He backs up his argument convincingly with detailed analyses of the seven major U.S. military expeditions since the evacuation of Saigon: the recovery of the SS Mayaguez and crew in 1975; the 1980 Iranian hostage-rescue attempt; the air battle over the Gulf of Sidra in 1981; the 1982-84 Marine deployment in Lebanon; the Grenada invasion of 1983; the interception of the Achille Lauro hijackers in 1985; and the operations against Libya which climaxed with the F-111 strike on Tripoli in 1986. Unit quality, according to the author, has been uniformly good, a marked contrast from the ragged, dispirited remnants of the later Vietnam era. Bolger, who teaches a history at West Point, is blunt, however, about the failures in Lebanon.'--Publishers Weekly.

Assassination in Algiers: Churchill, Roosevelt, de Gaulle, and the Murder of Admiral Darlan, Verrier, Anthony
4 Assassination in Algiers: Churchill, Roosevelt, de Gaulle, and the Murder of Admiral Darlan Verrier, Anthony
0393028283 / 9780393028287 Like New. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1990 W. W. Norton. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; jacket crisp. Only light store shelfwear. 302 pages; Index; Notes; Sources; Glossary; black-and-white photos; maps. Language: English. 'The murder of Petainist Admiral Darlan in Algiers on December 24, 1942 by Fernand Bonnier was the culmination of a chain of events that began with the surrender of France to Hitler in 1940. British journalist Verrier uses interviews along with both published and unpublished primary sources to reconstruct these events and to assess Churchill and Roosevelt's policies toward Vichy France. Verrier shows that from 1940 on Churchill was doggedly committed to DeGaulle as a unifying leader of free France. Roosevelt, for tactical reasons, pursued a policy of accommodation with Vichy. Darlan was able to parlay American support into promises of power in postwar France before British policy triumphed with his death. An interesting, detailed study of a murky diplomatic episode, this book should be welcomed by scholars of World War II.'--William C. McCully Jr., Library Journal, 1990. Keywords: military, history, Operation TORCH.
