Lost triumph : Lee's real plan at Gettysburg-and why it failed by Tom Carhart ( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A bold new thesis in the study of the Civil War suggests Lee had a heretofore undiscovered strategy at Gettysburg that, if successful, could have changed the outcome of the war. Conventional wisdom has held that on the third day of the battle, Lee made one profoundly wrong decision. But there is much more to the story, which Tom Carhart addresses for the first time. With meticulous detail, Carhart revisits the historic battles Lee taught at West Point--the victories of Napoleon at Austerlitz, Frederick the Great at Leuthen, and Hannibal at Cannae--and reveals what they can tell us about Lee's real strategy. What Carhart finds: Lee's plan for a rear assault that, combined with Pickett's Charge, could have broken the Union forces in half. Only in the final hours of the battle was the attack reversed through the daring of an unproven young general--George Armstrong Custer
A time to lead : for duty, honor and country by Wesley K Clark ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher description: Four-star General Wesley K. Clark became a major figure on the political scene when he was drafted by popular demand to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2003. But this was just one of many exceptional accomplishments of a long and extraordinary career. Here, for the first time, General Clark uses his unique life experience--from his difficult youth in segregated Arkansas where he was raised by his poor, widowed mother; through the horror of Vietnam where he was wounded; the post-war rebuilding of national security and the struggles surrounding the new world order after the Cold War--as a springboard to reveal his vision for America, at home and in the world. General Clark will address issues such as foreign policy, the economy, the environment, education and health care, family, faith, and the American dream. Rich with breathtaking battle scenes, poignant personal anecdote and eye-opening recommendations on the best way forward, General Clark's new book is a tour de force of gripping storytelling and inspiring vision

The impact of U.S. domestic law on the last days of American presence in Vietnam by Tom Carhart ( Book )
4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In July 1973, the U.S. Congress passed a law (Public Law 93-50) that forbade the expenditure of funds in support of combat activities in or over Cambodia, Laos, North Vietnam and South Vietnam by U.S. forces after 15 August, 1973. In November, 1973, the War Powers Resolution was passed by both Houses of Congress over a Presidential veto, and became Public Law 93-148. The impact of these two laws which seem to preclude rather rigidly the reappearance of U.S. Armed forces in the Indochinese war, is discussed in this report

West Point warriors : profiles of duty, honor, and country in battle by Tom Carhart ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When America must be defended, the men of West Point are there. From the War of 1812 to the twenty-first-century fight against terrorism at home and abroad, in the heat of battle and in the face of certain death, they give ever-renewed meaning to the West Point motto, "Duty, Honor, Country." They range from the celebrated, like Robert E. Lee and Douglas MacArthur, to the unsung, including Patrick H. O'Rorke, who stunned the Confederates at Little Round Top with a ferocious and gallant charge that stopped their advance; Russell P. Reeder, Jr., who led his regiment ashore at Normandy and valiantly fought German forces before losing a leg; and Joseph G. Clemons, Jr., who commanded an infantry company that held off the enemy on Pork Chop Hill in Korea. They -- and many more -- were all West Point warriors, men who led America's soldiers through this nation's wars and who protect us to this day with selfless sacrifice and unbounded bravery. - Publisher

Still loyal be : the story of the extraordinary West Point Class of June 1943 fighting wars and performing military and public service by Tom Carhart ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This is the story of West Point's Class of June 1943 ... I will tell the stories of the class members who later attained success and a certain amount of fame, both within the military services and the civilian sector. But I will also tell the stories of men whose early life experiences were captivating and even thrilling, but whose later lives tended more toward normal human experience with little in the way of public or even professional acclaim. And that is how it should be, since for all members of the class, it is their service to country that matters"--Preface
