1 Dooley, Dr. Thomas A. Edge of Tomorrow, The

       $.50 is the original price. 144 pages. Tight binding. Red colour on the edges
In General: A bit of light wear's on the edges of the Front Cover. The usual crease's down the middle of the Spine from book opening plus a " tear's at the bottom edge and minor ruffling's at the top edge. The Spine's sort of yellowish in colour. Both Front and Back Covers have some handling indents. A former Used Bookstore and School have their stamps on the inside of the Front Cover.
Story: Dooley built a Hospital to help cure people and was also instrumental in trying to smuggle people out of Communist control. I read a bit about what he was really like but if you're curious I'll leave it up to you to find out because he wasn't a Saint. Just a Human. I think the good he did outweighs the rest of the crud. He had a lot of enemies. 004560

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
