Travis’ father was a failed soldier, a coward and a heartless bully who tried to disown his son. Now Travis is determined to shame him by becoming the soldier his father could never have been – through joining the Parachute Regiment, the élite of the British Army. His restless urge to prove himself takes him from country to country and from army to army, where he battles with enemies both external and internal until he is finally able to put horror and tragedy behind him and find honour, love and peace. ‘The sounds of the battle were like some crazy symphony, orchestrated by a mad composer and led by an even madder conductor who had decided to play all his heavy brass instruments at the same time and all of his percussion, bass drums pounding amid the deafening clashes of cymbals. His instruments were automatic rifle fire, hand grenades, grenade launchers, claymore mines, light and heavy machine guns and mortars. For vocals he had the screams of the wounded and dying.’ ‘A killer story, with a strong emotional core, powerful themes that will touch hearts and a believable protagonist’ - Kaye Jones, History in an Hour

War is not a pleasant activity. But whether we fight physically or spiritually, it has been necessary in order for good to win the battle over evil. The stakes were existence itself. This book is about a Soldier enamored with the glory of war before he entered the service, but who was soon disillusioned to the point he never wanted to kill again nor have anything to do with deadly violence. Yet the duty that follows from righteousness called, and he could but respond as his innate soul dictated, however reluctantly. In the end he finds peace with himself and understands why he must fight, no matter his abhorrence. May all Good Spirits live Forever and well, for that is the goal of our reluctant Soldier.

William Charles Lyon was one of several prominent soldiers in New Zealand in the nineteenth century who bridged the divide between the British Army and the Colonial Forces. A failed affair and family forced him to retire from his regiment and emigrate to New Zealand. Plagued by self-doubt and debt, he rose to the opportunities presented by what remained of the New Zealand Wars and the various internal and external threats to the colony that followed and succeeded in retaining the affection of his new family. This book provides a penetrating insight into this pivotal phase in New Zealand's early colonial period, particularly the changing nature of the military leadership; the development of the Volunteer Movement, the Waikato Militia, and the Armed Constabulary; and the early European settlement of the Waikato.
Change and Conflict in the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps Since 1945

Army chaplains have long played an integral part in America’s armed forces. In addition to conducting chapel activities on military installations and providing moral and spiritual support on the battlefield, they conduct memorial services for fallen soldiers, minister to survivors, offer counsel on everything from troubled marriages to military bureaucracy, and serve as families’ points of contact for wounded or deceased soldiers—all while risking the dangers of combat alongside their troops. In this thoughtful study, Anne C. Loveland examines the role of the army chaplain since World War II, revealing how the corps has evolved in the wake of cultural and religious upheaval in American society and momentous changes in U.S. strategic relations, warfare, and weaponry. From 1945 to the present, Loveland shows, army chaplains faced several crises that reshaped their roles over time. She chronicles the chaplains’ initiation of the Character Guidance program as a remedy for the soaring rate of venereal disease among soldiers in occupied Europe and Japan after World War II, as well as chaplains’ response to the challenge of increasing secularism and religious pluralism during the “culture wars” of the Vietnam Era.“Religious accommodation,” evangelism and proselytizing, public prayer, and “spiritual fitness”provoked heated controversy among chaplains as well as civilians in the ensuing decades. Then, early in the twenty-first century, chaplains themselves experienced two crisis situations: one the result of the Vietnam-era antichaplain critique, the other a consequence of increasing religious pluralism, secularization, and sectarianism within the Chaplain Corps, as well as in the army and the civilian religious community. By focusing on army chaplains’ evolving, sometimes conflict-ridden relations with military leaders and soldiers on the one hand and the civilian religious community on the other, Loveland reveals how religious trends over the past six decades have impacted the corps and, in turn, helped shape American military culture. Anne C. Loveland is T. Harry Williams Professor Emerita at Louisiana State University. She is the author of Southern Evangelicals and the Social Order, 1800–1860 and American Evangelicals and the U. S. Military, 1942–1993.

Each year, the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps selects one book that he believes is both relevant and timeless for reading by all Marines. The Commandant's choice for 1993 is We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young. In November 1965, some 450 men of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, under the command of Lt. Col. Hal Moore, were dropped by helicopter into a small clearing in the Ia Drang Valley. They were immediately surrounded by 2,000 North Vietnamese soldiers. Three days later, only two and a half miles away, a sister battalion was chopped to pieces. Together, these actions at the landing zones X-Ray and Albany constituted one of the most savage and significant battles of the Vietnam War. How these men persevered--sacrificed themselves for their comrades and never gave up--makes a vivid portrait of war at its most inspiring and devastating. General Moore and Joseph Galloway, the only journalist on the ground throughout the fighting, have interviewed hundreds of men who fought there, including the North Vietnamese commanders. This devastating account rises above the specific ordeal it chronicles to present a picture of men facing the ultimate challenge, dealing with it in ways they would have found unimaginable only a few hours earlier. It reveals to us, as rarely before, man's most heroic and horrendous endeavor.
