This is Volume 2 of a two volume set. Please order both volumes for a complete set. America is no longer the land of the free. In Senate Report 93-549, the United States Congress admitted that, since at least 9 March 1933, the American people have lived under a state of national emergency. Instead of a federal Government of delegated and limited powers, what now operates from Washington, D.C. is a centralized military despotism which claims ultimate sovereignty over its citizens and rules them by statute in all cases whatsoever. Beginning with the usurpations of Abraham Lincoln, this book explains how the so-called emergency powers of the President of the United States developed over a period of seven decades and finally culminated in the virtual supplanting of the Constitution by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal democracy. The author draws heavily from a wealth of rare political literature from the past two centuries, as well as long-forgotten Government documents to paint an unsettling picture of American history and to show why nothing ever seems to change in Washington, no matter which political party is currently in power.

After many years of fighting the war on terror, Delta Force Major Patrick Kindayr must choose between creeping disillusionment and an incredible offer to run for president of the United States. He wavers, until the shock assassination of the senator tipped to become the first female president convinces him that he must save a corrupted nation, and a world heading for disaster-even if this requires a pact with the devil. He explodes onto a campaign trail that pits him against a line-up of candidates that bodes as ill for the future as the policies of an incompetent president. Kindayr must also outmaneuver key segments of corporate America, epitomized by ruthless energy czar Stu Vanderman. In this battle Kindayr becomes the willing instrument of California's powerful Governor Henderson, who must control the White House if he is to break the stranglehold of Big Oil and avert catastrophic climate change. The unsuspecting Vanderman, who stops at nothing to squeeze the last barrels of crude from the frozen Arctic to the steamy jungle, realizes too late his fateful miscalculation of trusting the wily governor. And too late does the governor realize that in Kindayr he unleashed a force he never bargained for. From the primaries to the final candidate debates Kindayr manages not only to outwit a lethal South African ex-commando, but to stay ahead of a CIA officer and his shady associates wary of his friendship with Russia's new president. When Kindayr's predictions come true and a collapsing stock market begins to shatter the economy, the rising wave of his popularity makes the unthinkable come true. Against all odds he wins the White House-but turns his inauguration into a coup that will change the world.

Inspiring, outrageous... A thundering paradox of a man. Douglas MacArthur, one of only five men in history to have achieved the rank of General of the United States Army. He served in World Wars I, II, and the Korean War, and is famous for stating that "in war, there is no substitute for victory." AMERICAN CAESAR exaines the exemplary army career, the stunning successes (and lapses) on the battlefield, and the turbulent private life of the soldier-hero whose mystery and appeal created a uniquely American legend.

 During the first 10 months of the war in the Pacific, Japan achieved air supremacy with its carrier and land-based forces. But after major setbacks at Midway and Guadalcanal, the empire's expansion stalled, in part due to flaws in aircraft design, strategy and command. This book offers a fresh analysis of the air war in the Pacific during the early phases of World War II. Details are included from two expeditions conducted by the author that reveal the location of an American pilot missing in the Philippines since 1942 and clear up a controversial account involving famed Japanese ace Saburo Sakai and U.S. Navy pilot James "Pug" Southerland.

Since 1945, as the U.S. has engaged in near-constant “wars of choice” with limited congressional oversight, the executive and armed services have shared primary responsibility for often ill-defined objectives, strategies, and benefits. Matthew Moten shows the significance of negotiations between presidents and the generals allied with them.

Formally titled "General of the Army," the five-star general is the highest possible rank awarded in the U.S. Army in modern times and has been awarded to only five men in the nation's history: George C. Marshall, Douglas MacArthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Henry H. Arnold, and Omar N. Bradley. In addition to their rank, these distinguished soldiers all shared the experience of serving or studying at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where they gained the knowledge that would prepare them for command during World War II and the Korean War. In Generals of the Army, James H. Willbanks assembles top military historians to examine the connection between the institution and the success of these exceptional men. Historically known as the "intellectual center of the Army," Fort Leavenworth is the oldest active Army post west of Washington, D.C., and one of the most important military installations in the United States. Though there are many biographies of the five-star generals, this innovative study offers a fresh perspective by illuminating the ways in which these legendary figures influenced and were influenced by Leavenworth. Coinciding with the U.S. Mint's release of a series of special commemorative coins honoring these soldiers and the fort where they were based, this concise volume offers an intriguing look at the lives of these remarkable men and the contributions they made to the defense of the nation.
