Download or read book They Were Soldiers written by Ann Jones and published by Haymarket Books. This book was released on 2013-10-21 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Unsparing, scathingly direct, and gut-wrenching . . . the war Washington doesn’t want you to see” (Andrew J. Bacevich, New York Times–bestselling author of Washington Rules) This “uncompromisingly visceral” account (Mother Jones) of what combat does to American soldiers comes from a veteran journalist who was embedded with troops in Afghanistan and reveals the harrowing journeys of the wounded, from the battlefield to back home. Along the way, the author of the acclaimed Kabul in Winter shows us the dead, wounded, mutilated, brain-damaged, drug-addicted, suicidal, and homicidal casualties of our distant wars, exploring the devastating toll such conflicts have taken on us as a nation. “An indispensable book about America’s current wars and the multiple ways they continue to wound not only the soldiers but their families and indeed the country itself. Jones writes with passion and clarity about the tragedies other reporters avoid and evade.” —Marilyn Young, editor of Iraq and the Lessons of Vietnam

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: News media, movies, blogs and video games issue constant invitations to picture war, experience the thrill of combat, and revisit battles past. War, it's often said, sells. But what does it take to sell a war, and to what extent can news media be viewed as disinterested reporters of truth? Lively and highly readable, this book explores how wars have been reported, interpreted and perpetuated from the dawn of the media age to the present digital era. Spanning a broad geographical and historical canvas, Susan L. Carruthers provides a compelling analysis of the forces that shape the production of news and images of war – from state censorship to more subtle forms of military manipulation and popular pressure. This fully revised second edition has been updated to cover modern-day conflict in the post 9/11 epoch, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Rich in historical detail, The Media at War also provides sharp insights into contemporary experience, prompting critical reflection on western society's paradoxical attitudes towards war.

Book excerpt: 'The thing that haunts me most to this day is that blokes were dying and I could do bugger all about it - do you look after the bloke who you know is going to die or the bloke who's got a chance?' - Australian ex-POW doctor, 1999 During World War II, 22 000 Australian military personnel became prisoners of war under the Japanese military. Over three and a half years, 8000 died in captivity, in desperate conditions of forced labour, disease and starvation. Many of those who returned home after the war attributed their survival to the 106 Australian medical officers imprisoned alongside them. These doctors varied in age, background and experience, but they were united in their unfailing dedication to keeping as many of the men alive as possible. This is the story of those 106 doctors - their compassion, bravery and ingenuity - and their efforts in bringing back the 14 000 survivors. 'You are unfortunate in being prisoners of a country whose living standards are much lower than yours. You will often consider yourselves mistreated, while we think of you as being treated well.' - Japanese officer to Australian POWs, 1943
Download or read book Christianity and Human Rights written by Frances S. Adeney and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on with total page 242 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book addresses the relationship of Christianity and human rights—a relationship fraught with ambiguity. While human rights discourse arose in a Christian culture, it has sometimes stood in opposition to organized Christianity. Christianity has been a champion of human rights; on other occasions it has been a major violator of them. Contributors to this book explore both positive and negative views of human rights arising from Christian traditions. Among the issues discussed are the sources of ideas on human rights, Christian influences on international human rights covenants and conventions, Christian theology and human rights, the right to change religions, Roman Catholic perspectives, and Christian peace activism and human rights. Christian discourse is juxtaposed with the proposed Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the World's Religions, which is included.

Download or read book That Powerless Feeling written by Aaron Handy and published by Trafford Publishing. This book was released on 2010-03-10 with total page 333 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The book is a revealing anti-Vietnam War narrative about the day to day interactions of a group of young combatants coping with the realities of war during redeployment. The lives of these mostly draftees are candidly detailed as the story negotiates the one year tour faced by all who served there. It gives an insight into the Spartan life of the foot soldier and the predicament of the many reluctant warriors who, by 1970, were faced with fighting a war that seemingly no longer needed to be fought. The story deals with a lot of the intimate issues that were both common to all of the troops and relevant to many of the families at home. It is an informative study for the uninitiated and a remembrance for all who were affected that would easily qualify as more than just a journal dealing only with the conflict. There is also a parallel story portraying the tragedy of a mother struggling with the loss of her son to the war. Her ensuing long term grieving process and the effect she had on the survivors of the battle is a centerpiece of the book. The abundance of drugs and the immaturity of the troops facing the disparity of fighting for an unpopular foreign policy created an unusual war effort. With no victory to achieve, there were only lives to be lost as the war dragged on. In the face of the odds stacked against them, they reinvented their purpose for being there and fought for each other creating a bond that testifies to the human spirit and its ability to adapt.

Download or read book Hellships Down written by Michael Sturma and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2021-03-18 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On 12 September 1944, a wolfpack of U.S. submarines attacked the Japanese convoy HI-72 in the South China Sea. Among the ships sunk were two carrying Allied prisoners of war. Men who had already endured the trials of Japanese captivity faced a renewed struggle for survival at sea. This book tells the broader story of the HI-72 convoy through the stories of two survivors: Arthur Bancroft, who was rescued by an American submarine, and Charles "Rowley" Richards, who was rescued by the Japanese. The story of these men represents the thousands of Allied POWs who suffered not only the atrocious conditions of these Japanese hellships, but also the terror of friendly fire from their own side's submarines. For the first time, the personal, political and legal aftermath of these men's experiences is fully detailed. At its heart, this is a story of survival. Charting the survivors' fates from rescue to their attempts at retribution, this book reveals the trauma that continued long after the war was over.
