In telling the story of America's last great air battle, Marshall Michel has used hundreds of formerly classified documents from U.S. government archives and traveled to Hanoi to examine records there. He also interviewed dozens of Americans and Vietnamese who participated in the battle at all levels, allowing him to take the reader into meetings at the White House and SAC Headquarters, and into the B-52 cockpits, the Vietnamese missile sites and the POW camps of Hanoi.

'I had thought that for me there could never again be any elation in war. But I had reckoned without the liberation of Paris - I had reckoned without remembering that I might be a part of that richly historic day. We were in Paris on the first day - one of the great days of all time.' (Ernie Pyle, US war correspondent) The liberation of Paris was a momentous point in twentieth-century history, yet it is now largely forgotten outside France. Eleven Days in August is a pulsating hour-by-hour reconstruction of these tumultuous events that shaped the final phase of the war and the future of France, told with the pace of a thriller. While examining the conflicting national and international interests that played out in the bloody street fighting, it tells of how, in eleven dramatic days, people lived, fought and died in the most beautiful city in the world. Based largely on unpublished archive material, including secret conversations, coded messages, diaries and eyewitness accounts, Eleven Days in August shows how these August days were experienced in very different ways by ordinary Parisians, Resistance fighters, French collaborators, rank-and-file German soldiers, Allied and French spies, the Allied and German High Commands. Above all, it shows that while the liberation of Paris may be attributed to the audacity of the Resistance, the weakness of the Germans and the strength of the Allies, the key to it all was the Parisians who by turn built street barricades and sunbathed on the banks of the Seine, who fought the Germans and simply tried to survive until the Germans finally surrendered, in a billiard room at the Prefecture of Police. One of the most iconic moments in the history of the twentieth century had come to a close, and the face of Paris would never be the same again.

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2014 'SUPERB' - SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE, LONDON EVENING STANDARD BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2013 'EXTRAORDINARY' - KEVIN POWERS, AUTHOR OF THE YELLOW BIRDS 'THINK HOMELAND IN FICTION FORM...' - RED 'AN EXTRAORDINARILY GIFTED WRITER' - MICHIKO KAKUTANI, NEW YORK TIMES Eleven Days is, at its heart, the story of a mother and a son. It begins in May 2011: Sara's son Jason has been missing for nine days in the aftermath of a special operations forces mission. Out of devotion to him, Sara has made herself knowledgeable about things military, but she knows nothing more about her son's disappearance than the press corps camped out in her driveway. In a series of flashbacks we learn about Jason's absentee father - a man who died, according to "insiders," helping to make the country safer - and Jason's decision to join the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis after 9/11 and enter into the toughest military training in the world: for the U.S. Naval Special Warfare's Navy SEAL Teams. Through letters Jason wrote his mother while training, we see him becoming a strong, compassionate leader. But his fate will be determined by events that fall outside the sphere of his training, and far outside the strong embrace of his mother's love. As well as a touching picture of the bond between a mother and a son this is a unique look into the training, history and culture of one of the world's elite forces. Page-turning and haunting, this is an astonishing debut which questions the very nature of sacrifice and love.

For Katie, life is as normal as it gets, but a chance meeting with Paul Redman sends her life into an uncontrollable tailspin. Katie is swept into the fast lane of wealth, happiness and uninhibited emotion. As each glorious day passes, wealthy Paul Redman becomes increasingly determined to weave their futures together as one. However, tragedy strikes and Katie flees her familiar life in grief and confusion. A near fatal accident sends her on a collision course with Gabe Caplin, a kind, reclusive giant of a man from a suppressed and violent childhood.

Katie is torn between her love for Paul Redman and her increasing desire for Gabe Caplin. Her world and life is threatened in a final confrontation when vengeful psychopath Scarfe Olsen comes calling - and shooting. In the tradition of Graham Guy's most popular novels, Eleven Days is a sweeping saga of tender love that weaves its way through an explosive adventure.

In a mesmerizing debut, cop-turned-author Donald Harstad uses real-life events to paint a jarring picture of crime in America's heartland--where two-stoplight towns no longer offer refuge from modern-day brutality. Life in Maitland, Iowa, is usually predictable, even for a cop. But all that changes the day Deputy Sheriff Carl Houseman's dispatcher receives the terrifying 911 call. The day cops find the mutilated bodies at a remote farmhouse. The first of eleven days Carl will never forget. As hotshot investigators fly in from New York, Carl and his fellow cops use old-fashioned detective work to piece together clues. But to turn suspicions into suspects, Carl must search among his closest friends to find a killer who has shocked and bewildered cops who'd thought they'd seen it all. And before it's over, Carl will be forced into an unrelenting spiral of chaos, coming face-to-face with evil he never dreamed could exist in Maitland...or anywhere else. From the Paperback edition.

A funny, poignant memoir of the author's annual eleven day transition from Wall Street to his family's Italian sausage business at the Wisconsin State Fair. A return to family, hometown...and self. Great Americana! Welcome to the August lives of Amatore Mille and his family. The year is 2001...and 1957...and 1973 - actually, every year, since 1932 - when the Milles began an August summer tradition of selling Italian sausage sandwiches at The Wisconsin State Fair. You are about to enter a world where Italian immigrant grandparents leave their indelible mark on three subsequent generations, where a father, in his inimitable way, focuses on the family business...and his family...for eleven days of each summer, and where children grow up with sawdust underfoot and State Fair attractions all around. In episodes that move between present and past, the author takes you on a tour of family escapades that, in turn, are laugh-out-loud funny...and touching...where grandma, with no experience, is forced to drive expensive cars, grandpa provides light-hearted amusement (but little work), and the author, through misadventures and near-tragedy, finally learns what the family business is really all about.

Eleven Days, thef ollow-up to 2013's acclaimed A Dark Redemption (New York Times, New Yorker, NPR), follows DI Jack Carrigan and DS Geneva Miller as they investigate a vicious fire that engulfs a quiet convent in West London. There were ten nuns in residence--their bodies discovered behind a locked door--and an eleventh body in the chapel. Who is this stranger, and who would target a group of nuns in a wealthy residential neighborhood? Battling church hierarchy and internal politics, Carrigan and Miller must parse through a vast network that reaches back to the early 1970s South America and the onset of the Liberation Theology movement, proving that these nuns are far more radical than first meets the eye. Meanwhile, a vicious new criminal element--possibly related to the convent fire--makes its presence felt in the streets of London. Eleven days before Christmas, Carrigan and Miller are in a race against time to solve a case that spans four decades and two continents, while contending with a homegrown threat that leaves the Met gasping for breath.

Sixteen-year-old Lela Itzel is deeply inconvenienced when her mother calls her U.S. boarding school demanding her presence at a funeral. Her great aunt and former nun has been gunned down in front of her home in Guatemala City. Why would they shoot an old lady, Itzel wonders, even if she had been a rebel? Inconvenience turns to wonder and excitement as she enters the dangerous ceasefire world of Guatemala just after hostilities have ended. Both her parents had fled the country just prior to Itzel's birth in the U.S. and this is her first return to the land of her heritage. At first she is overwhelmed with stories of her parent's exploits as a doctor and nurse with the rebels during the civil war. Her personal transition has already begun when the stories of other family members on both sides of the conflict emerge during the course of the visit. Then Itzel makes a mistake. Partly through her own over-confidence in a land she doe not yet understand and partly through factors unknown to her and her parents, she becomes subject of an intense search by the prosecutor's office and the feared "judiciales," a non-uniformed group of law enforcement officers still functioning with impunity after the ceasefire. At her school, Itzel is a varsity oarswoman who is used to extreme training and finely honed physical condition. In a particularly poignant sweat-lodge scene, her training and competitive attitude leads the second step in her transformation: she takes responsibility for getting herself out of the situation. "Something has changed," thinks the old compa who is trying to help her. Although aided by unknowing friends from school and the old companero (and former enemy of her father), they are all captured and faced with a horrendous choices leading to radical personal transformation. Eleven Days is a tense, fast moving story of both heroism and failure and above all the expansion of the human spirit."
