Despite the fact that they and their families had been forced into internment camps, thousands of the American sons of Japanese immigrants responded by volunteering to serve in the United States armed forces during World War II. As military historian Bill Yenne writes, "It was their country, and they wanted to serve, just like anyone else their age. These young Japanese Americans thought of themselves as Americans, and they wanted to prove it." Most of these young Japanese Americans served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and its component 100th Infantry Battalion. For its size and length of service, the 442nd was the most decorated in the history of the US Army. The Japanese American GIs of the 442nd eventually earned 21 Medals of Honor and 9,486 Purple Hearts, while their outfit was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations. Rising Sons brings to light the stories of these young men who faced down discrimination to serve their country. Some of these sons of Japanese immigrants came from Hawaii, where they had witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor firsthand, and responded like most Americans by signing up to serve. Most of the Japanese-Americans served in Italy and France, in the terrible and difficult battles at Anzio and Cassino, in the Vosges Mountains and on the Gothic Line. Detached from the regiment for service in southern Germany, the 442nd's artillery battalion had the ironic distinction of being one of the American units involved in the liberation of Dachau. Japanese-Americans also proved themselves invaluable in the Pacific as well, serving in the Military Intelligence Service or in the infamous special-ops commando team known as Merrill's Marauders. Weaving together impeccable research with vivid firsthand accounts from surviving veterans, Yenne recounts the incredible stories of the Japanese-American soldiers who fought so bravely in World War II, men who were willing to lay down their lives for a country they were uncertain would ever accept them again. Their courageous actions proved that they, too, were true members of America's Greatest Generation.

Through dark magic, demonic soldiers, and the lost technology of an ancient civilization, Lord Shima forces change and terror on Gruff's planet. With the powerful aid of his three sons and the awesome might of a life-altering stranger, Gruff must once again stand against a fearsome adversary. As Gruff races against time and space to save his world, he must also hold together his band of young and impulsive soldiers who are much too eager to prove their worth. Armed with razor-sharp steel, unimaginable armor, and mind-blowing strength, Gruff and his impetuous men slay demons and beasts on their path to Lord Shima's cancerous kingdom of Atlantis.

So many times in our own homes and communities -at-Large, the young female child is nurtured, raised up properly with all the best of character qualities invested into them. Now, on the other hand too often the young male is left to go at it all alone, on his own. This young male (sons), are charged to become the leaders in home, and the market place in the not-too-distant future. This book, RISING SONS was birthed and born from a similar experience in my own life. Had it not been for God using my grandma Jay to hold me accountable and at the same time provide for me in all areas of life, I don't think I would have survived. Yes, there were many times I just wanted to run away from home, school, plantation and yes God. But thank God for a strong grandma who wouldn't let me do what I felt. I guess we all have had our prodigal experiences at one time or the other. After much prayer and soul searching, this book was birthed in my spirit and then manifested in my mind and body. Out of the plantation, cotton field and fighting mosquitoes, flies and knats came a little boy out of wedlock not knowing what to do or which way to go; Nay, Crock Martin, Nate, names given to me by family and close friends. Some other names, I had to learn to deal with on plantation were: boy, nigger, blacky, or that boy or just him-names my grandma and mama taught me how to handle. Even though the Delta Plantation had its dark sides and many pains, and suffering we, sharecroppers endured, yet there were some Whites / Caucasins who were loving, caring and fair with Black sharecroppers. These are the people who came along side of us and help to keep us mentally and spiritually sane. I have learned and try hard to implement into my life: Three-fold purpose of man: (1) Be fruitful- (giving birth) (2) Multiply- (raising productivity), (3) Replenish- (leaving a deposit). Ultimate lesson I have taken from writing this book is: (a) Don't stop working for change, when things start getting better. (b.) It is not about me, but the next generation, the unborn, but about building an infrastructure in my home that will serve as a kingdom model. This is a historical and biographical account of challenges and triumphs I experienced as a child in rural Mississippi-the delta region of Leflore County. Little did I know that God was allowing me to experience the many challenges of growing up in a society where racism, alcoholism, social alienation, educational segregation, and economical were the "norms." This is just the way things were and as a young black boy born out-of-wedlock you did not ask questions. This is just the way it was.

The true story behind the worst training accident in the history of the Australian Army, and how for 50 years, an entire nation forgot it ever happened. On Monday the 21st of May 1945, a single blinding flash of highly explosive gelignite violently detonated in an underground training bunker at the Royal Australian Engineer Training Centre 'Kapooka Camp', nine miles from Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia . In less than a second, 26 of Australia's promising young soldiers were killed. Many were mutilated beyond recognition. Following an unprecedented outpouring of public emotion and grief, including a Royal message of condolences to affected families, the largest military funeral and coordinated interment of troops in Australia's history took place just two days later. Then, inexplicably, for the next 50 years, Australia chose to forget the tragedy ever happened. Based on the testimony provided to the Australian Military Forces, Court of Inquiry, by the very men and women who witnessed this horrific tragedy unfold, this story provides a chilling insight into the lives of the unfortunate victims, and explains just what went wrong that fateful autumn day in 1945 when an unexpected explosion tore open the heart of a country town, and stunned a nation."

The story of Eric Burdon and The Animals is the story of the Sixties. The original Animals were part of the British rhythm 'n' blues movement in the early years of that momentous decade - a movement whose love of a musical genre almost forgotten in its native America succeeded in "Bringing It All Back Home." Blessed in Eric Burdon with the most authentic white blues vocalist of their generation and a collective and astonishing capacity to reinvigorate old forms - most notably in transatlantic chart topper 'The House of the Rising Sun' - The Animals overcame bitter internecine rivalry to produce a string of truly classic singles that put them briefly on a par with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. They also gained a reputation for remarkable live shows that showcased Burdon's almost frightening commitment to their material. By 1967, though, both music and society were changing. A trip to love-infused, LSD-drenched San Francisco convinced Burdon that R&B was redundant. His new line-up of The Animals espoused the philosophy of Flower Power and made the shift to writing their own material. Their hits 'San Franciscan Nights' and 'Sky Pilot', as well as being brilliant records, fascinatingly freeze for posterity the concerns and issues of a particular time and place. However, the 'new' Animals' affi nity for peace-and-love was not reflected by relations within the band. After personnel upheavals and a terrifying tour of Japan in 1968, the group collapsed. Animal Tracks tells the story of both versions of The Animals. Additionally, it reveals the astonishing behind-the-scenes rancour that marked the ill-fated reunions of the original band. In this UPDATED AND EXPANDED version of his definitive Animals biography, Sean Egan draws on hours of interviews with surviving Animals, both original (Eric Burdon, John Steel, Hilton Valentine, Dave Rowberry, Barry Jenkins) and 'new' (Vic Briggs, John Weider, Zoot Money, Andy Summers) to produce a compelling portrait of a truly remarkable band. Egan has also been granted unprecedented access to band member journals and archives, enabling him to reveal the story behind the recording of each and every Animal Track.
