Giai Phong! The Fall and Liberation of Saigon, Terzani, Tiziano
8 Terzani, Tiziano Giai Phong! The Fall and Liberation of Saigon
U.S. Ballantine Books, Inc. #345-25622-0. First Ballantine Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. 
       May, 1977. $2.25 is the original price. 334 pages which includes a Glossary and Index. Tight binding. Contains: A few Maps and quite a few black-and-white photos. Translator: Shepley, John.
Story: As the Title says. "Uncle Ho" admired the Americans and their struggle to be independant from England so he wrote to the White House to ask for American help in getting the French to leave his country as they'd originally claimed it as a Colony. But the American government took the side of the French against him because Ho had Communist leanings and we all know how this turned out. It was understandable as the French had supported the Americans in their original War of Independence.
       When the Japanese invaded various countries they tried to get the people on their side by convincing them how badly they'd been used by the countries that had controlled them as Colonies and how easy it was to defeat them in battle. The Japanese were much worse and brutal than the old Rulers but the idea of freedom remained in the heads of the people after the Japanese were defeated. All it took was to get the right people to start the ball rolling and Uncle Ho was the man. The age of Imperialist Power was over. When asked the people sometimes say that they might have corrupt governments but the government's are from themselves and not foreigners. It's sad that the U.S. didn't understand this and had to blunder into this war as they could have avoided it, Bad Advise they've always been good at. Stupid Politicians. They're so dumb but think they're so clever. 004407

Loins of Amon, The, van  Heller, Marcus
9 van Heller, Marcus Loins of Amon, The
U.S. Brandon House Books. 1967 #2031 First Brandon House Library Ed. Mass Market Paperback. Fine Plus. 
$1.25 is the original price. 207 pages. White paper. Tight binding.
Front Cover: A " - wide creased corner's at the bottom right and there's a small bit of a white mark where the original price sticker probably was.
Spine: A tiny bit of edge wear's at the bottom.
Back Cover: A " - wide creased corner's at the top left and there's a light scratch at the middle at the bottom.
In General: A previous Owner lightly wrote in pencil some of their thoughts about the book. This can mostly be erased but please be very careful when doing it so you don't accidentally screw up the page. I'll do it for you if you ask. There's a very nice illustration on the Frontispiece. In case you're curious when the symbols point to the left you read from right to left. I just mention this as I studied a bit of ancient Egyptian hyroglyphs in my younger days when I was seriously thinking of becoming an Egyptologist and studying at The U. of Chicago.
Story: A good Tale set in ancient Egypt with a rather ironic ending. van Marcus writes well although he tosses in some gratuitous sex as this is a Brandon House book and they were noted for this. A good book to read, for me. Recommended, as it's well-written. The few Brandon House books I've browsed through over the years are usually well-written even if some of them are loaded with sex. 004704

Story: A summation of von Clausewitz's ideas about warfare, its goals and varieties. The Introduction by Edward M.

Even the Chinese Military from Mao tse Tung and up appear to have studied von Clausewitz. It's a very interesting book. Know your enemies, my friends. They certainly try to know us. 004450
