Something to die for by James Webb( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a story of war in the 1990s-a limited "peacetime" battle raging in a distant Third World desert, which requires unusual technical expertise and great physical courage from the men who fight it. It is also the story of two politicians, a cunning young bureaucrat about to claim the highest ground in Washington, and a savvy political operator from the heartland with one deal too many to his name. Between them, there is a beautiful woman and a man-to-man competition that becomes a determinant in global strategy. In the balance are the lives of thousands of fighting men, perhaps even the course of history. Alternating his views between the increasing grimness of the battlefield and the manic jockeying on Capitol Hill, James Webb draws his graphically etched characters to a memorable confrontation and treats the reader to a darkly illuminating vision of contemporary history, Washington-style -- Page 2 of cover

A time to fight : reclaiming a fair and just America by James Webb( Recording )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I'm the only person in the history of Virginia elected to statewide office with a Union card, two Purple Hearts, and three tattoos." Jim Webb--the bestselling author and now the celebrated, outspoken U.S. Senator from Virginia--presents a clear-eyed, hard-hitting plan of attack for putting government to work for the people, rather than special interests, and for restoring the country's standing around the world. Infused with the intelligence, force, and firebrand style that has earned Senator Jim Webb enormous national attention from his earliest days in office, A time to fight offers a thorough and provocative assessment of the thorniest issues Americans face today, along with cogent solutions drawn from Webb's lifetime of experience as a much-decorated Marine, a widely traveled, award-winning journalist and novelist, a highly placed member of the Reagan administration, a Senator with a son who fought as a Marine in Iraq and, perhaps most important, a proud scion of America's vast but frequently ignored working class
