'For Bram to share his amazing stories is a gift . . . you can't help but be inspired.' - Paul Roos To be a good leader you first have to be a good follower, but to be a great leader you have to remember that being a good follower wasn't easy. Imagine having access to the planning, training and motivational secrets of Australia's most elite military operators; then imagine being able to adapt what they know to your own everyday life. This is what Bram Connolly gives us in this smart, surprising, optimistic and autobiographical manual for resilience, personal leadership and success. In sharing the tedium of training as a raw recruit and taking us into the pitch of battle during some of the toughest fighting in Afghanistan, Bram Connolly reminds us among other things that it is okay to be bored, that laziness can quickly become a habit, that there are advantages in being scared and that it's fine to let go. Clear-headed, honest and self-deprecating, The Commando Way offers powerful lessons that can be used in all aspects of life, no matter who you are. 'The Commando Way is an engaging and practical journey . . . a must read for leaders in any stage of their own leadership journey.' - General Stanley McChrystal (Ret'd), former commander of US and International Security Assistance Forces Afghanistan

Exciting World War II action The exploits of Britain's wartime commandos Covers fighting in Norway, Italy, France and Germany John Durnford-Slater raised and trained the first Commando unit in 1940, became an outstanding leader of special operations and witnessed some of the most daring exploits of World War II. Commando is his remarkable story. 3 Commando sprang into being in 1940 in order to harry Axis forces in pinprick raids that were impossible for regular army units. In the summer of 1940 John Durnford-Slater led the men of 3 Commando in an exploratory operation on Guernsey. A raid on the Loften Islands, off Norway, followed in 1941 and, between 26 and 28 December 1941, the commandos launched their raid against Vaagso. 3 Commando took part in the raid on Dieppe and this was followed by operations in Sicily and Italy, France and, ultimately, Germany itself. The destruction wrought by the commandos was such that Hitler ordered all personnel captured in such raids executed. The commandos' spirit, however, remained undaunted and this is reflected in John Durnford-Slater's exciting and forthright memoirs. Now placed in context by David List's details of 3 Commando's operations, and David Buxton's notes on casualties and awards, this stirring book, long heralded as a classic, now makes its first appearance as a paperback. John Durnford-Slater was appointed 'to raise and command' 3 Commando in 1940. He was later responsible as Deputy Commander of the Special Service Group for all Commando companies taking part in the invasion of France.

Presents a comprehensive history of the U.S. program, chiefly derived from SIGIR's body of extensive oversight work in Iraq, hundreds of interviews with key figures involved with the reconstruction program, and thousands of documents. The report examines the pre-war planning for reconstruction, the shift from a large infrastructure program to a more community-based one, and the success of the Surge in 2007 and beyond. The report provides thirteen lessons applicable to contingency relief and reconstruction operations, which should create a basis for reviewing and reforming the U.S. approach to these activities.

The breakout collection of Uncaged Stories is a book of thrilling, nail biting surprise ending stories covering every genre ranging from urban fiction, crime thriller to romance. Some take you there with all three. Thomas uses his skills to write tales that make points about social issues like gun violence and PTSD. He paints pictures so vivid, so real, he causes life changing epiphany moments. Little creates urban fiction from unique viewpoints of unlikely lead characters, adding a twist. Curtis tackles everything from romance to stories about gangs, guns and drugs. Padgett has produced a thriller about the past deeds of a successful lawyer coming back to threaten her. All these authors write from a unusual perspective --being incarcerated.

There were many types of land warfare in World War II--armored, siege, jungle, infantry, mobile, invasion--each with its own challenges, disciplines, logistical problems and potential for glory or disaster. Choosing ten different kinds of battle which can lay claim to greatness, Hogg has concentrated on the Western and Pacific theaters, reflecting the great variety of equipment, objectives, strategy, tactics, and the personality of commanders.

This report looks at the British contribution to the operation in Iraq and pays attention to both the preparatory and deployment stage, and the transition from combat to peace keeping. The 15 main areas it examines include topics such as: command and control; planning and strategy; equipment; use of reserves; information and the role of the media. It looks at the lessons the military has learned and also what can be learned for the future. The examination is quite detailed, for example the performance of each major piece of equipment is evaluated. Although the MOD is criticised for showing less co-operation than a parliamentary select committee should have been expected; the report concludes that the men and women of the armed forces deserve the highest praise for their conduct and performance in Iraq.
