  • JFK and Vietnam: Deception, Intrigue, and the Struggle for Power

    by Dr. John M. Newman
    The publication and suppression of JFK and Vietnam was a watershed event in 20th Century American history. This book exposed, for the first time, 1) how President Kennedy’s opposition to sending U.S. combat forces to Vietnam led those favoring intervention to concoct a false story of battlefield success to prevent a complete withdrawal from Vietnam; 2) the details of the intense struggle that erupted in the administration over the president’s decision to withdraw from Vietnam in the fall of 196... more
  • Countdown to Darkness: The Assassination of President Kennedy (Volume II)

    by Dr. John M. Newman
    The second volume in a series on the assassination of President Kennedy, “Countdown to Darkness” describes events during a dangerous quickening of the Cold War.

Snatched from his home as a young teenager, Abe was forced to spend the next five unimaginably horrific years as a prisoner and slave in Nazi camps such as Auschwitz and Buchenwald.

But was it luck, or an indomitable will to live? Abe barely survi... more

  • Murderers' Row

    by Springs Toledo

    There used to be a particularly dangerous and crime-ridden alley located in what is now the SoHo district of New York City; it ran between ramshackle tenements in a black neighborhood known as Darktown in the early 19th century. “Murderers’ Row” was no place for the decent or the delicate. By the 1870s, the term was used in direct reference to the second tier of the Tombs prison, which loomed a half mile from the alley. In 1918, New York was cheering six sluggers in... more

    by Justin Gordon
    In Holocaust Postal History, postal historian Justin Gordon takes readers on a journey through the Holocaust, using actual correspondence written by the victims to document the steps along the way. As Gordon attests, though, seemingly everyday items such as letters and cards often bear more than just a message: they represent lives, hopes, and history.
