Nice and clean book with light shelf wear. 302pp including Glossary. Price clipped. First edition. Review: In the library of pungent, grittily written books on the Vietnam war, Tom Bud Abraham's The Cage is something different--something very different indeed. Bud Abraham was one of the very few Englishmen who served in Vietnam. In the late 60s he took part in some of the most carnage-filled battles of the war as an officer in the first Cavalry Division. His courage gained him a slew of medals, and he even obtained one of the most prestigious decorations awarded by the American army, the Silver Star. n nThis astonishing testimony takes us into the very heart of that nightmare conflict, and some passages are positively lacerating in their impact. Captured by the Viet Cong during the Tet offensive, Abraham endured torture during the relentless interrogations, and his bold escape into the treacherous jungle was a classic case of from frying pan to fire: his ordeal (naked, hungry, terrified) brought him (Abraham tells us) to the level of a beast. n nAbraham's ability to convey his own extreme psychological state is astonishing, but not just in terms of the Vietnam war: the book is equally involving when Abraham takes us on to the events that nearly destroyed his life 30 years after the conflict, when he had returned to England. Not a book for the squeamish, certainly, but the final effect of this trenchant and distinguished memoir is genuinely inspiring: a testimony to the endurance of the human spirit. --Barry Forshaw n nReview nAn Englishman's terrifying journey to the dark heart of the Vietnam War.

The book is in GC with some shelf wear. 493pp including Notes, bibliography and index. Product Description: This book is an examination of Churchill's pivotal role in the development of modern Britain. The author looks at his career, which was not only long and controversial, but was also as much concerned with domestic issues and party politics as it was with waging war and international statesmanship. It is a study of Churchill on the home front, from his first election to Parliament to the end of his last ministry. At different times, he held the three greatest domestic portfolios: President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer, and was responsible for a vast amount of domestic legislation.
