Dennis Kimbro

The End of Greatness: Why America Can't Have (and Doesn't Want) Another Great President
Aaron David Miller

Palgrave Macmillan Trade, 2014

The Presidency has always been an implausible—some might even say an impossible—job. Part of the problem is that the challenges of the presidency and the expectations Americans have for their presidents have skyrocketed, while the president’s capacity and power to deliver on what ails the nations has diminished. Indeed, as citizens we continue to aspire and hope for greatness in our only nationally elected office. The problem of course is ...
  
  











  



  
Before the First Shots Are Fired: How America Can Win Or Lose Off The Battlefield
Tony Zinni, Tony Koltz

Palgrave Macmillan Trade, 2014

For the better part of the last half century, the United States has been the World’s Police, claiming to defend ideologies, allies, and our national security through brute force.

War Dogs: Tales of Canine Heroism, History, and Love
Rebecca Frankel

Palgrave Macmillan Trade, 2014

Under the cover of night, deep in the desert of Afghanistan, a US Army handler led a Special Forces patrol with his military working dog. Without warning an insurgent popped up, his weapon raised. At the handler’s command, the dog charged their attacker. There was the flash of steel, the blur of fur, and the sound of a single shot; the handler watched his dog take a bullet.

Millennial Money: How Young Investors Can Build a Fortune

Band of Giants: The Amateur Soldiers Who Won America's Independence
Jack Kelly

Palgrave Macmillan Trade, 2014

Band of Giants brings to life the founders who fought for our independence in the Revolutionary War.
