Part of the Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History series. In May 1970 aerial photographs revealed what US military intelligence believed was a POW camp near the town of Son Tay, 23 miles west of North Vietnam´s capital city. When American officials decided the prisoners were attempting to send signals, they set in motion a daring plan to rescue the more than 60 airmen thought to be held captive. On November 20 a joint group of volunteers from US Army Green Berets and US Air Force Special Operations Forces perfectly executed the raid, only to find the prisoners´ quarters ∅ the POWs had been moved to a different location. Initially the Son Tay raid was a devastating disappointment to the men who risked their lives to carry it out. Many vocal critics labeled it as a spectacular failure of our nation´s intelligence network. However, subsequent events proved that the audacity of the rescue attempt stunned the North Vietnamese, who implemented immediate changes in the treatment of their captives. The operation also restored the prisoners´ faith that their nation had not forgotten them. John Gargus not only participated in the planning phase of the Son Tay rescue but also flew as a lead navigator for the strike force. This revised edition incorporates the most recent information from raid participants and includes recent translations of North Vietnamese perspectives. No previous account of this top-secret action has given such a full account or such insight into both the execution and the aftermath of Son Tay. The book is published by Texas A&M Press. 1.

On February 1, 1861, delegates at the Texas Secession Convention elected to leave the Union. The people of Texas supported the actions of the convention in a statewide referendum, paving the way for the state to secede and to officially become the seventh state in the Confederacy. Soon the Texans found themselves engaged in a bloody and prolonged civil war against their northern brethren. During the curse of this war, the lives of thousands of Texans, both young and old, were changed forever. This new anthology, edited by Kenneth W. Howell, incorporates the latest scholarly research on how Texans experienced the war. Eighteen contributors take us from the battlefront to the home front, ranging from inside the walls of a Confederate prison to inside the homes of women and children left to fend for themselves while their husbands and fathers were away on distant battlefields. Also explored are well-known battles that took place in or near Texas, such as the Battle of Galveston, the Battle of Nueces, the Battle of Sabine Pass, and the Red River Campaign. Finally, the social and cultural aspects of the war receive new analysis, including the experiences of women, African Americans, Union prisoners of war, and noncombatants. The book is published by University of North Texas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Charles. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/071962/bk_acx0_071962_sample.mp3.

Indigenous Music and Dance explores a range of Indigenous music and dance forms and performances in the Torres Strait and tropical Northern Territory. It reveals the way traditional music and dance have responded to colonial control and, more recently, to other external forces. The book explores the way musical past and present exist as a continuum of creativity and the contested nature of contemporary cultural performances.

Individual contributors, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, demonstrate how local music and dance have been subjected to missionary, institutional, popular and global influences. They provide a cultural background and history of Torres Strait music and discuss how contemporary Christian music and dance in Arnhem Land incorporates traditional ritual. They unpack the complex form and structure of an Australian Aboriginal song series and examine the transformation of
