Beyond band of brothers [the war memoirs of Major Dick Winters] by Richard D Winters( Sound Recording )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 658 libraries worldwide
In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible. They were called Easy Company--but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy--where Easy Company reached its breaking point--and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat. Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters's memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the first time
Blood diamonds [tracing the deadly path of the world's most precious stones] by Greg Campbell( Sound Recording )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 626 libraries worldwide
The diamonds of Sierra Leone have funded one of the most savage rebel campaigns in modern history. These "blood diamonds" are smuggled out of West Africa and sold to legitimate diamond merchants in London, Antwerp, and New York, often with the complicity of the international diamond industry. Eventually, these very diamonds find their way into the rings and necklaces of brides the world over. Blood Diamonds is the story of how a rebel war funded by diamond smuggling has effectively destroyed Sierra Leone and its people, and how the policies of the diamond industry have allowed it to happen. Greg Campbell traces the deadly trail of these diamonds and the repercussions felt far beyond the poor and war-ridden country of Sierra Leone
Blackwater the rise of the world's most powerful mercenary army by Jeremy Scahill( file )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 538 libraries worldwide
A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation. Meet Blackwater USA, the world's most secretive, powerful, and fastest growing private army on the planet. Founded by fundamentalist Christian megamillionaire Erik Prince, the scion of a conservative dynasty that bankrolls extreme-right-wing causes, this company of soldiers is now being sent "to the front lines of a global battle, waged largely on Muslim lands, that an evangelical President whom Prince helped put in the White House has boldly defined as a 'crusade'." Ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to Washington, D.C., where they are hailed as heroes, this is the dark story of Blackwater's rise to power

Told in compelling first-person, here, too, is Burton's advice on personal safety for today's most powerful CEOs, gleaned from his experience at Stratfor, the private firm Barron's calls "the shadow CIA."
