Six Silent Men from the Author: Reynel Martinez. "No way in hell you could survive 'out there' with six men. You couldn't live thirty minutes 'out there' with only six men." [pg. 13] In 1965 nearly four hundred men were interviewed and only thirty-two selected for the infant LRRP Detachment of the lst Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. Old-timers called it the suicide unit. Whether conducting prisoner snatches, search and destroy missions, or hunting for the enemy's secret base camps, LRRPs depended on one another 110 percent. One false step, one small mistake by one man could mean sudden death for all. Author Reynel Martinez, himself a 101st LRRP Detachment veteran, takes us into the lives and battles of the extraordinary men for whom the brotherhood of war was and is an ever-present reality: the courage, the sacrifice, the sense of loss when one of your own dies. In the hills, valleys, and triple-canopy jungles, the ambushes, firefights, and copter crashes, LRRPs were among the best and bravest to fight in Vietnam. From the Paperback edition.

Six Silent Men Book Two from the Author: Kenn Miller. In the summer of 1967, the good old days were ending for the hard-core 1st Brigade LRRPs of the 101st Airborne Division, perhaps the finest maneuver element of its size in the history of the United States Army. It was a bitter pill. After working on their own in Vietnam for more than two years, the Brigade LRRPs were ordered to join forces with the division once again. But even as these formidable hunters and killers were themselves swallowed up by the Screaming Eagles' Division LRPs to eventually become F Co., 58th Infantry, they continued the deadly, daring LRRP tradition. From saturation patrols along the Laotian border to near-suicide missions and compromised positions in the always dangerous A Shau valley, the F/58th unflinchingly faced death every day and became one of the most highly decorated companies in the history of the 101st. From the Paperback edition.

Secret And Silent Men Of 1798 from the Author: James Caulfield. Academia has inexplicably ignored and omitted the presence of The Society of Freemasons in Ireland in most of the popular history books. This omission is confusing and somewhat illogical considering the overwhelming weight of evidence, not only of their existence but also their involvement in every facet of Irish affairs for more than 200 years. Their absence from the history books leaves a void which curtains the vital information needed to complete the sorry picture of 1798.

The Valley Of Silent Men from the Author: James Oliver Curwood. A police officer on a deathbed makes a confession of a murder that an innocent man is about to be hanged for. A beautiful and mysterious young woman knows something about the murder, but has deep reasons to keep it hidden from all except the Chief of Police, who also has reasons of his own for it to stay a secret. James Oliver Curwood (1878-1927) was an American action-adventure writer and conservationist. His adventure writing followed in the tradition of Jack London. Like London, Curwood set many of his works in the wilds of the Great White North. He often took trips to the Canadian northwest which provided the inspiration for his wilderness adventure stories. At least eighteen movies have been based on or inspired by Curwood's novels and short stories.

Seven Silent Men from the Author: Noel Behn. Seven small-time crooks pull off a spectacular heist in this whip-smart crime novel from the New York Times–bestselling author of Big Stick-Up at Brink’s! A $31 million bank robbery is the biggest news in the history of tiny Prairie Port, Missouri—and it only gets bigger when the trail of clues leads detectives to a gang of backwoods misfits. The FBI doesn’t believe rank amateurs could have pulled off such a sophisticated heist, however, and only when the Bureau’s most wanted felon confesses to the caper is the case finally closed. No one in law enforcement seems concerned by the outrageous coincidences or high-profile names that appeared in the course of the investigation, but rogue FBI agents Billy Yates and Martin Brewmeister begin to suspect they have stumbled into a deadly and far-reaching conspiracy. As the body count climbs, Yates and Brewmeister go on the run in a desperate attempt to stay alive long enough to uncover the real masterminds behind the crime of the century. Jam-packed with colorful characters, intricate plot twists, and crackling dialogue, Seven Silent Men is entertainment of the highest order—a bravura combination of heist caper and conspiracy thriller that will grab ahold of the reader and never let go.
