    How American westward expansion was governmentally engineered to promote the formation of a white settler nation Westward expansion of the United States is most conventionally remembered for rugged individualism, geographic isolationism, and a fair amount of luck.

    Stackpole Books 2017; US$ 28.99

    Developed for the Vietnam War (and made famous by the 2004 presidential campaign), Swift Boats were versatile craft ?big enough to outrun anything they couldn?t outfight? but too small to handle a moderate ocean chop, too loud to be stealthy, and too flimsy to withstand rocket attack. This is an intimate, exciting history of Swift Boats in Vietnam.... more...

  • Enduring Vietnamby James Wright

    St. Martin's Press 2017; US$ 20.99

    The Vietnam War is largely recalled as a mistake, either in the decision to engage there or in the nature of the engagement. Or both.
