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.

Synopsis: Between 1973 and 1980 novice sailor Shane Acton sailed around the world in his tiny yacht Super Shrimp, at the time the smallest vessel ever to complete a circumnavigation. The story of his voyage was later told in the book Shrimpy. This sequel relates Acton's further sailing adventures as he travels via France to the Mediterranean, to North Africa and across the Atlantic Ocean to the islands of the Caribbean, Florida and Central America. It is a humorous account of the events that take place, the people that he meets and the freedom he discovers as he sails the world's oceans alone.

This is another paragraph

From Library Journal: This is a huge and masterful dual biography of two of the most monstrous personalities of this century. Bullock, whose Hitler: A Study in Tyranny ( LJ 2/15/64) truly deserves its designation as a classic, has produced a smoothly written study of how these two lives ran parallel and how they intertwined to affect the lives of millions in the first half of this century. One would expect Bullock to know Hitler, but his grasp of Stalin and his times is also impressive. In chapters alternately dealing with Hitler and then Stalin, Bullock analyzes how each man achieved and then used power for his own twisted goals. It is chilling to realize that both men rose within legitimate institutions, each playing the game by the established rules. Hitler's evil empire collapsed with his death, Stalin's would live on to haunt the Soviet Union for decades.
