A Rumor of War
by Philip Caputo

A Rumor of War

When it first appeared, A Rumor of War brought home to American readers, with terrifying vividness and honesty, the devastating effects of the Vietnam War on the soldiers who fought there. And while it is a memoir of one young manís experiences and therefore deeply personal, it is also a book that speaks powerfully about the larger themes of human conscience, good and evil, and the desperate extremes men are forced to confront in any war.

A platoon commander in the first combat unit sent to fight in Vietnam, Lieutenant Caputo landed at Danang on March 8, 1965, convinced that American forces would win a quick and decisive victory over the Communists. Sixteen months later and without ceremony, Caputo left Vietnam a shell-shocked veteran whose youthful idealism and faith in the rightness of the war had been utterly shattered. Caputo gives us an unflinching view not only of remarkable bravery and heroism but also of the atrocities committed in Vietnam by ordinary men so numbed by fear and desperate to survive that their moral distinctions had collapsed.

ALBERT SCHWEITZER -
REVERENCE FOR LIFE

Translated by Reginald H. Fuller
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) Alsatian philosopher, theologian, musician, mission doctor and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. A world figure in the theological studies, he was an organist of concert caliber and an interpreter of rare and original perception of Bach. In 1913 he founded his famous hospital in French Equatorial Africa (later the republic of Gabon) building it with his worn hands. This collection of his theological thoughts demonstrates Dr. Schweitzer's own original contribution of "Reverence for Life" as the true and effective basis for a civilized world. NU4-100

Bacall: By Myself
(The Bogart Years)

by Lauren Bacall

na2130.gif - 13300 Bytes

In a word, Bacall By Myself is terrific. It is so honest, so full of love and pain that Bacall comes across as someone you really like . . . it is warm, glamorous yet down to bedrock kind of book. She rose from obscurity like a rocket. At 17 she was a photographer's dream and a Harper's Bazaar cover girl . . . and suddenly Betty Bacall was a Hollywood celebrity, dazzled by all she met, especially her leading man, Humphrey Bogart. Bacall wrote about her life as she lived it, every detail, every magic moment, every heartache. You will love listening to her life on cassette.

THE MOON'S A BALLOON

BRING ON THE EMPTY HORSES

by David Niven
Here is a rare treat, David Niven reading his own best-selling stories. There are 2 tapes for each story, as there are abridgements. It was the only way to actually have the author read his own story. Both stories are fascinating glimpses into the glitter days of Hollywood by the man who lived each magic moment. He adds to the warm and funny tales with his own inimitable style. NA4-425

Ten Days That Shook the World
by John Reed

Ten Days That Shook the World

John Reed re-creates the swift, tumultuous events of that incredible November 1917: the convening of the Congress of Soviets, the capture of the Winter Palace, the Land decree, the Peasants Congress, the clash between Bolshevics and Kerensky. He dramatically portrays the clash of men and ideas that changed the course of history.

This masterful narration by William Ratner captures all of the flavor and vitality of John Reedís epic account.
