From the acclaimed author of The Dead and Those About to Die comes a sweeping narrative of six decades of combat. and an eye-opening account of the evolution of the American infantry. From the beaches of Normandy and the South Pacific Islands to the deserts of the Middle East. the American soldier has been the most indispensable-and most overlooked-factor in wartime victory. In Grunts. renowned historian John C. McManus examines ten critical battles-from Hitler’s massive assault on US soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge to counterinsurgency combat in Iraq-where the skills and courage of American troops proved the crucial difference between victory and defeat. Based on years of research and interviews with veterans. this powerful history reveals the ugly face of war in a way few books have and demonstrates the fundamental. and too often forgotten. importance of the human element in serving and protecting the nation.

Blink of the Screen
In the four decades since his first book appeared in print. Terry Pratchett has become one of the world’s best-selling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short form fiction collected into one volume. A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Pratchett’s long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press. and the origins of his debut novel. The Carpet People; and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series.Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered; abandoned worlds and others still expanding; adventure. chickens. death. disco and. actually. some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas.all of it shot through with his inimitable brand of humour. With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt. this is a book to treasure.
