Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he´d been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart´s mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father´s death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father´s court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family´s secret history and driven to uncover the truth about this enigmatic, distant man who´d always refused to talk about his war. As he pieces together his father´s past through military archives, letters, and, finally, notes from a memoir his father wrote while in prison, secretly preserved by the officer who defended him, Stewart starts to assemble a dramatic and baffling chain of events. He learns how Dubin, a JAG lawyer attached to Patton´s Third Army and desperate for combat experience, got more than he bargained for when he was ordered to arrest Robert Martin, a wayward OSS officer who, despite his spectacular bravery with the French Resistance, appeared to be acting on orders other than his commanders´. In pursuit of Martin, Dubin and his sergeant are parachuted into Bastogne just as the Battle of the Bulge reaches its apex. Pressed into the leadership of a desperately depleted rifle company, the men are forced to abandon their quest for Martin and his fiery, maddeningly elusive comrade, Gita, as they fight for their lives through carnage and chaos the likes of which Dubin could never have imagined. In reconstructing the terrible events and agonizing choices his father faced on the battlefield, in the courtroom, and in love, Stewart gains a closer understanding of his past, of his father´s character, and of the brutal nature of war itself. 1.

September 1st, 1939. Germany invades Poland in the early morning hours.

Vietnam is one of the most hotly debated wars. Should we have been there? Did the people of Vietnam really want our help? Did our presence there really help them? These are questions that will haunt the history books for many decades, or even centuries, to come.What we do know is that some men who fought in this highly unpopular war were heroes. They put their own lives on the line, often making the ultimate sacrifice, to save the lives of other men in their units. When thinking of Vietnam, it’s important to remember that many of the men volunteered to avoid being drafted or were unwillingly drafted into service. Others volunteered under a sense of patriotism and believed in the leaders of our country. Regardless of their reason for being there, many of them fought and died.These are the stories of the heroes. These are the stories of just a handful of men who put the good of their unit above their own personal safety in hopes that they could help one more man go home at the end of it all. Countless lives were saved through their bravery and, if nothing else, their sacrifice should be remembered and honored. Soldiers on both sides gave their lives for a cause that many would question for decades to come. In this audiobook, we look at those who fought, those who lost, and why this war was started to begin with. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wes Super.

In December 1995, the FDA approved the release of protease inhibitors, the first effective treatment for AIDS. For countless people, the drug offered a reprieve from what had been a death sentence; for others, it was too late. In the United States alone, over 318,000 people had already died from AIDS-related complications - among them the singer Michael Callen and the poet Essex Hemphill. Meticulously researched and evocatively told, Hold Tight Gently is the celebrated historian Martin Duberman’s poignant memorial to those lost to AIDS and to two of the great unsung heroes of the early years of the epidemic. Callen, a white gay Midwesterner who had moved to New York, became a leading figure in the movement to increase awareness of AIDS in the face of willful and homophobic denial under the Reagan administration; Hemphill, an African American gay man, contributed to the black gay and lesbian scene in Washington, D.C., with poetry of searing intensity and introspection. A profound exploration of the intersection of race, sexuality, class, identity, and the politics of AIDS activism beyond ACT UP, Hold Tight Gently captures both a generation struggling to cope with the deadly disease and the extraordinary refusal of two men to give in to despair. 1.
