A Shau Valor Cover

A Shau Valor

American Combat Operations in the Valley of Death, 1963-1971

by Thomas Yarborough

Throughout the Vietnam War, one focal point persisted where the Viet Cong guerrillas and ARVN were not a major factor, but where the trained professionals of the North Vietnamese and U.S. armies repeatedly fought head-to-head. A Shau Valor is a thoroughly documented study of nine years of American combat operations encompassing the crucial frontier valley and a 15-mile radius around it—the most deadly killing ground of the entire Vietnam War.

Other works have focused on individual battles or units, but A Shau Valor is the first to study the nine-year campaign—for all its courage and sacrifice—chronologically and within the context of other historical, political and cultural events.


 To War with the 4th CoverTo War with the 4th

A Century of Frontline Combat with the U.S. 4th Infantry Division, from the Argonne to the Ardennes to Afghanistan

By Martin King, Mike Collins and Jason Nulton

The 4th Infantry Division has always been there in America’s modern wars. On 14 September 1918 the men of the “Ivy” Division stood up in their trenches and prepared to attack. In World War II on D-Day they scrambled ashore across the sands of Utah beach and remained fighting in Europe. In Vietnam they would execute precarious “search and destroy” missions in dense jungles against a determined and resourceful enemy. They fought in Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein, and in May 2009, at the height of Operation Enduring Freedom, the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team deployed to Afghanistan for a 12-month combat mission.


General Fox Conner CoverGeneral Fox Conner

Pershing’s Chief of Operations and Eisenhower’s Mentor

By Steven Rabalais

General Fox Conner presents the portrait of the quintessential man behind the scenes in U.S. military history. John J. Pershing considered Fox Conner to have been “a brilliant solider” and “one of the finest characters our Army has ever produced.” During World War I, General Conner served as chief of operations for the American Expeditionary Force in Europe.

Dwight D. Eisenhower viewed Fox Conner, as “the outstanding soldier of my time.” In the early 1920s, Conner transformed his protégé Eisenhower from a struggling young officer into one of the American army’s rising stars. This book presents the first complete biography of this significant, but now forgotten, figure in American military history.
