Lt. Gen. Tim Maude shares the distinction of being the highest ranking American soldier to lose his life in military action.

But unlike Lesley J. McNair and Simon B. Buckner Jr., both lieutenant generals who died during World War II, the battle he died in was not one he expected.

On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists commandeered an American Airlines flight out of Dulles International Airport and crashed it into the southwest wall of the Pentagon, killing Maude and more than a hundred other military and civilian workers. Scores of other people were injured when the airliner ripped through the building at 530 miles per hour.

At the time of his death, Maude served as the deputy chief of staff for personnel, the Army’s chief executor of personnel policy and manager of the various programs affecting the strength and moral well-being of America’s land forces.

As one of only five members of the Army’s Adjutant General’s Corps to rise to the rank of lieutenant general, his story is one of triumph and celebration, and an abiding commitment to family, country, and service.

By Perry L. Angle
Depressions’ Child tells the story of a man whose personality was altered by the Great Depression. Throughout his life the hardships that he endured turned him toward a bitter single purpose. He worked for financial gain in the mistaken belief that success would shield him from another horrid economic downturn. He was a person forced to fight bare knuckles in alleyways for prize money to buy bread. His own family became a means to an end. Only on his deathbed at age ninety-four did he realize that the depression sickness had caused him to hurt those he loved and he finally understood why his own son called him, The Emperor.

The story is told in classical tradition with the chapters reflecting the four imagined elements of the ancients--Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Each reinforces the overall mood changes of the individual and of the times. Here mythology, science, religion and psychology are interwoven to highlight various aspects of his incredible journey through dark periods in his life

It is a sad story that clearly proves that history can invade the psychology of the present.

By Robert Gilberg

New Bremen, Ohio, was mostly like countless other small farm towns in that part of the state in the 1950s. The primary business at the time was farming—corn, wheat, hay, alfalfa, and soybeans, along with some dairy farming—and there were always cows and pigs in the fields. And it’s where author Robert Gilberg spent the first twenty-two years of his life.

In The Last Road Rebel, he shares what it was like growing up in that small town. In this memoir, Gilberg admits he is probably lucky to have survived his childhood; some of his friends did not. He is also lucky to have met the right girl at the right time who unknowingly gave him the push needed for him to climb out of an early life with a limited future. The stories—some hilarious, some horribly sad, and some just fun—tell of a young person who experienced the tortures of found and lost teen love, knew the disappointment of poor preparation for life after school, and finally looked himself in the mirror and decided it was time to get out of that place.

Against the backdrop of the times, when the sounds on the radio were changing from Perry Como and Patti Page to Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis, and Little Richard, The Last Road Rebel recalls the times, places, people, events, and experiences that have stayed with Gilberg forever.

By Carl Rollyson
Biography as a literary genre is largely the product of the eighteenth century and of one seminal work, James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson (1791). Boswell's innovations revolutionized the genre and made it the target of suppression and censorship. He sought not only to memorialize a great man but also to reveal his flaws. Boswell reported long stretches of Johnson's conversation, noted his mannerisms, and in general gave an intimate picture such as no biography had ever before dared to attempt.

After Boswell, there was a retreat from his bolder innovations, which amounted to self-censorship on the biographer's part. When Thomas Carlyle's biographer, James Anthony Froude, braved this trend against truth and allowed his subject's dark side to show, he was vilified in the press.

The tensions between discretion and candor have endured in British biography since Froude, a point Carl Rollyson makes in the reviews of contemporary British biographers he includes in British Biography, which also contains Johnson's full-length biography of Richard Savage, excerpts from Boswell's Life of Johnson as well selections from and commentaries on Southey's biography of Nelson, Mrs. Gaskell's biography of Charlotte Brontë, and the revolutionary work of Froude and Strachey.

By Philip Staal

It was 1942 in Amsterdam when Isaac and Anna Staal began noticing their Jewish neighbors disappearing. Some were taken away by Dutch police. Some vanished in the middle of the night. As the Nazis embarked on a manhunt for Dutch Jews, Isaac and Anna made the agonizing decision to entrust their children to strangers and seek another hiding place for themselves. On May 21, 1943, the time had come. Dazed with sleep, Philip and his brother were given a last hug by their parents and put in the arms of an aunt who went out the door softly, got on her bicycle with the two tiny tots, and disappeared in the silent night.

Sixty years later, Philip was commissioned to work for the restoration of rights in the Netherlands. When looking through archives and records, he discovered the well-kept secret of the war orphans’ guardians’ organization.

In his compelling story that weaves between past and present, Staal not only shares a heartbreaking narrative of his childhood as a toddler separated from his parents during World War II and forced to live in orphanages after years of hiding but also how he eventually made it his personal mission to reimburse assets and restore rights lost by Dutch victims of persecution, and search for the legacies of war orphans’ parents, including his own.

Settling the Account shares poignant personal narrative, historical facts, and one man’s determined pursuit to bring justice to Dutch-Jewish war orphans, and their murdered parents and resolve the mystery of his past.
