SYNOPSIS : Keera was driven by hate. Hate for the Orc Shaman who was responsible for her mother's death. She had been flying for most of the day, and now, as the sun started to sink lower in the sky, she was in danger of losing his trail. Back on the ground amongst the trees of the Great Forest, Keera's wings ached from the fatigue of flying so far from home, but still she pressed on. Suddenly the Winged Huntress became the hunted, as a band of Orcs sprung their trap. It was now Orc steel against Valkari talons - this would be a fight to the death. On the other side of the the Great Forest, Merick wasn't faring much better - he too was facing death. He had no idea how the Mountain Troll had got into the castle grounds; but he knew one thing for sure, that large axe it held above his head was about to cleave him in two - and there was nothing he could do to prevent it.

SYNOPSIS : Jerry Thigpen's study on the history of the Combat Talon is the first effort to tell the story of this wonderfully capable machine. This weapons system has performed virtually every imaginable tactical event in the spectrum of conflict and by any measure is the most versatile C-130 derivative ever produced. First modified and sent to Southeast Asia (SEA) in 1966 to replace theater unconventional warfare (UW) assets that were limited in both lift capability and speed the Talon I quickly adapted to theater UW tasking including infiltration and resupply and psychological warfare operations into North Vietnam. After spending four years in SEA and maturing into a highly respected UW weapons system the Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) chose the Combat Talon to lead the night low-level raid on the North Vietnamese prison camp at Son Tay. Despite the outcome of the operation the Talon I cemented its reputation as the weapons system of choice for long-range clandestine operations. In the period following the Vietnam War United States Air Force (USAF) special operations gradually lost its political and financial support which was graphically demonstrated in the failed Desert One mission into Iran. Thanks to congressional supporters like Earl Hutto of Florida and Dan Daniel of Virginia funds for aircraft upgrades and military construction projects materialized to meet the ever-increasing threat to our nation. Under the leadership of such committed hard-driven officers as Brenci Uttaro Ferkes Meller and Thigpen the crew force became the most disciplined in our Air Force. It was capable of penetrating hostile airspace at night in a low-level mountainous environment covertly to execute any number of unconventional warfare missions.

SYNOPSIS : Topical and up to date, Talons of the Eagle: Latin America, the United States, and the World, Fourth Edition, presents an eminent scholar's perspective on the interaction between global trends and inter-American affairs--a subject that has become crucially important in the current era. Rather than concentrating solely on U.S. policy, Peter H. Smith uniquely addresses the structural relationships between the two regions by focusing on international systems, the distribution of power, and the perception and pursuit of national interests. Throughout, this provocative text casts light on such contemporary issues as economic integration, drug trafficking, undocumented migration, and the rise of Latin America's "new left." It also analyzes Latin American reactions and responses to the U.S.--and to the rest of the world--in these complex and troubling times. NEW TO THIS EDITION * An innovative conceptual framework that reinterprets the post-9/11 period through the prism of two distinct "regimes" or "rules of the game"--one relating to geoeconomics (especially free trade), the other relating to geopolitics (specifically the War on Terror) * Two entirely new chapters (Ch. 13: Dilemmas of Immigration, and Ch. 14: Drug Trafficking, Drug Wars) * A sharpened distinction between "hard" and "soft" power
