              A Military History of the English Civil War examines how the civil war was won, who fought for whom, and why it ended. With a straightforward style and clear chronology that enables readers to make their own judgements and pursue their own interests further, this original history... provides a thorough critique of the reasons that have been cited for Parliament's victory and the King's defeat in 1645/46. It discusses the strategic options of the Parliamentary and Royalist commanders and councils of war and analyses the decisions they made, arguing that the King s faulty command structure was more responsible for his defeat than Sir Thomas Fairfax's strategic flair. It also argues that the way that resources were used, rather than the resources themselves, explain why the war ended when it did.

              In January 1965, the principal U.S. ally against communism in Southeast Asia, the Republic of (South) Vietnam, appeared to be headed for collapse. Armed revolutionaries fighting a proxy war on behalf of Communist North Vietnam held the political and military initiative. The insur...gents controlled nearly half of South Vietnam's countryside and almost a third of its population. The U.S.-trained South Vietnamese Army was losing soldiers and equipment at an alarming rate. Regiment-size enemy units threatened the nation's capital, Saigon, and the fractious coalition of civilian and military officials who governed the country seemed unable to deal with the crisis. President Lyndon B. Johnson and his National Security Council concluded that the Republic of Vietnam could only survive if the United States took a more active part in the war.

              With the book Florence Kinrade: Lizzie Borden of the North, Durvile's True Cases series takes a spin into historical true crime. Florence Kinrade, in 1909, seemed merely the dutiful daughter of a wealthy educator and the fianc? of a parson's son. At the same time she was leading ...a double life as a vaudeville artiste and soon became the central figure in a gruesome family murder. By digging deep into contemporary accounts and inquest testimony, Frank Jones' narrative nonfiction focuses on Florence's inner life, suppressed emotions, and romantic escapades to contextualize the murder of her sister, Ethel. Jones reveals the challenges of a upper class woman seeking a showbiz career, illuminates the little-known tramp menace feared by people of the era, and reveals Florence's mental diagnoses by famous psychiatrist of the time, C.K. Clarke. Florence Kinrade is a deeply personal and intimate exploration which holds many parallels with the story of Lizzie Borden, another famous murder mystery involving a family murder and a mysterious young woman.
