The 100-foot promontory known as Pointe du Hoc--where six big German guns were ensconced--was number one. General Omar Bradley called knocking out the Nazi defenses at the Pointe the toughest of any task assigned on June 6, 1944. Under the bulldoggish command of Colonel James E. Rudder of Texas, profiled here, these elite forces, "Rudder's Rangers," took control of the fortified cliff. The liberation of Europe was under way. Based upon recently released documents, the first in-depth, anecdotal remembrance of these fearless Army Rangers, is told in tandem with the making of Reagan's two uplifting 1984 speeches, considered by many to be among the best orations he ever gave.--From publisher description+-+127010515514815ocn010456929book19840.24Reagan, RonaldAbortion and the conscience of the nation146234ocn060572968visu19390.21Goulding, EdmundDark victoryDramaFilm adaptationsThe life of a fast moving Long Island socialite skids to a stop when she discovers that she has less than a year to live+-+8826537425324131614ocn019920475book19890.21Reagan, RonaldSpeaking my mind : selected speeches"Here, in his own words, is the record of Ronald Reagan's remarkable political career and historic eight-year presidency.

It honors the patriotic efforts of American soldiers during World Wars I and II. Berlin appears as himself, as does singer Kate Smith who delivers a rousing rendition of God bless America, for which she received the Congressional Gold Medal. Ronald Reagan stars as Johnny Jones, a son who follows in his father's show business footsteps. During World War I his father Jerry Jones staged an all-soldier show on Broadway called Yip yip Yaphank. Being a dancer and then wounded in the War, Jerry moves on to being a producer. In World War II his son Johnny Jones, who was his father's assistant, gets the order to stage a new show, called This is the army.

Morris developed a fascination for the genial yet inscrutable President and, after Reagan's landslide reelection in 1984, put aside the second volume of his life of Roosevelt to become an observing eye and ear at the White House." "Thus began a long biographical pilgrimage to the heart of Ronald Reagan's mystery, beginning with his birth in 1911 in the depths of rural Illinois (where he is still remembered as "Dutch," the dreamy son of an alcoholic father and a fiercely religious mother) and progressing through the way stations of an amazingly varied career: young lifeguard (he saved seventy-seven lives), aspiring writer, ace sportscaster, film star, soldier, union leader, corporate spokesman, Governor, and President. Reagan granted Morris full access to his personal papers, including early autobiographical stories and a handwritten White House diary." "During thirteen years of obsessive archival research and interviews with Reagan and his family, friends, admirers and enemies (the book's enormous dramatis personae includes such varied characters as Mikhail Gorbachev, Michelangelo Antonioni, Elie Wiesel, Mario Savio, Francois Mitterrand, Grant Wood, and Zippy the Pinhead), Morris lived what amounted to a doppelganger life, studying the young "Dutch," the middle-aged Cold Warrior, and the septuagenarian Chief Executive with a closeness and dispassion, not to mention alternations of amusement, horror, and amazed respect, unmatched by any other presidential biographer."--Jacket+-+7350009485329820ocn022617415book19900.21Reagan, RonaldAn American lifeBiographyThe former president tells of his life and political experiences+-+334641621529804ocn042854282file19970.28Pemberton, William EExit with honor the life and presidency of Ronald ReaganBiographyThe author used archival sources at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library to explore "the shaping of Reagan's beliefs and values during his childhood in the American heartland; his leadership of the American conservative movement; and his political career, culminating in the first successful two-term presidency since Dwight Eisenhower."--Jacket+-+604551012528869ocn085850929book20070.21Reagan, RonaldThe Reagan diariesBiographyDiariesDuring his two terms as the fortieth president of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a daily diary in which he recorded, by hand, his innermost thoughts and observations on the extraordinary, the historic, and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. Whether he was in his White House residence study or aboard Air Force One, from his first inauguration to the end of the Cold War, each night Reagan wrote about the events of his day. Now, nearly two decades after he left office, this record--the only daily presidential diary in American history--is available for the first time. Brought together in one volume and edited by historian Douglas Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provide insight into one of this nation's most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader.--From publisher description+-+K55123515527878ocn021594074book19910.24Johnson, HaynesSleepwalking through history : America in the Reagan yearsHistoryThis book examines the Reagan decade in which America fell from a dominant world power to a struggling debtor nation+-+3407790385274212ocn020294761book19890.22Noonan, PeggyWhat I saw at the revolution : a political life in the Reagan eraBiographyAn account of the Reagan years in Washington and the world behind the words, by Peggy, the speechwriter+-+7512569535265210ocn023141350book19910.24Cannon, LouPresident Reagan : the role of a lifetimeBiographyThis is a close-up view of eight years in the history of America and the man whose legacy is now only beginning to be clarified+-+164571643624936ocn013795873book19870.25Wills, GarryReagan's America : innocents at homeBiographyA biography analyzing the values surrounding Reagan as he grew up, was educated, entered into the movie and business worlds, and finally into politics+-+225147596522419ocn048077450book20010.19Noonan, PeggyWhen character was king : a story of Ronald ReaganBiography AnecdotesAnecdotesIt is twenty years--a full generation--since Ronald Reagan first walked into the White House & ignited a revolution. From the beginning, he enjoyed the American people's affection but now, as he approaches the end of his life, he has received what he deserved even more: their deep respect. What was the wellspring of his greatness? Peggy Noonan, bestselling author of the classic Reagan-era memoir What I Saw at the Revolution, former speechwriter, & now a columnist & contributing editor for The Wall Street Journal, argues that the secret of Reagan's success was no secret at all. It was his character--his courage, his kindness, his persistence, his honesty, & his almost heroic patience in the face of setbacks--that was the most important element of his success. The one thing a man must bring into the White House with him if he is to succeed, Noonan contends, is a character that people come to recognize as high, sturdy, & reliable. Noonan, renowned for her special insight into Ronald Reagan's history & personality, brings her own reflections on Reagan to bear in When Character Was King & discloses never-before-told stories from the former president's family, friends, & White House colleagues to reveal the true nature of a man even his opponents now view as a maker of big history.

Buckley Jr. offers a reminiscence of thirty years of friendship with the man who brought the American conservative movement out of the political wilderness and into the White House. Ronald Reagan and Buckley were political allies and close friends throughout Reagan's political career. They went on vacations together and shared inside jokes. Yet for all the words that have been written about him, Ronald Reagan remains an enigma. His former speechwriter Peggy Noonan called him "paradox all the way down," and even his son Ron Reagan despaired of ever truly knowing him. But Reagan was not an enigma to William F. Buckley Jr. They understood and taught each other for decades, and together they changed history.
