En 2009, Clinton Romesha, de la sección Red Platoon, y el resto de la tropa Black Knight se preparaban para cerrar el Comando Outpost (COP) Keating, el más remoto e inaccesible de una serie de bases militares construidas por el ejército estadounidense en Nuristán y Kunar, con la esperanza de impedir que los insurgentes talibanes se moviesen libremente entre Afganistán y Pakistán. Keating se encontraba aislado y era demasiado difícil de defender. El 3 de octubre de 2009, 300 talibanes atacaron Keating con todos los recursos de que disponían. La batalla, que duró doce horas y es recordada como uno de los con ictos más sangrientos de la guerra de Afganistán, acabó con la victoria del ejército estadounidense, pero también costó las vidas de ocho soldados y veintidós heridos.El pelotón rojoes el fascinante relato en primera persona de la batalla de Kamdesh, narrada por Clinton Romesha, quien encabezó la defensa del puesto avanzado y el contraataque que hizo retroceder a los talibanes. Su comportamiento ejemplar le valió la Medalla de Honor del ejército estadounidense, de entre las doce que se concedieron a personalidades destacadas de las guerras de Afganistán e Irak.

In 2009, Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost (COP) Keating, the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the United States military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three years after its construction, the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately: it was simply too isolated and too dangerous to defend. On October 3, 2009, after years of constant smaller attacks, the Taliban finally decided to throw everything they had at Keating. The ensuing fourteen-hour battle--and eventual victory--cost eight Americans their lives. Red Platoon is a firsthand account of the Battle for COP Keating, told by Romesha, who spearheaded both the defense of the outpost and the counterattack that drove the Taliban back beyond the wire and received the Medal of Honor for his actions.--From dust jacket.

Throughout his career, Eduardo Galeano has turned our understanding of history and reality on its head. Isabelle Allende said his works “invade the reader’s mind, to persuade him or her to surrender to the charm of his writing and power of his idealism.” Mirrors, Galeano’s most ambitious project since Memory of Fire, is an unofficial history of the world seen through history’s unseen, unheard, and forgotten. As Galeano notes: “Official history has it that Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, the two oceans at once. Were the people who lived there blind??” Recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods, and visionaries, from the Garden of Eden to twenty-first-century New York, of the black slaves who built the White House and the women erased by men’s fears, and told in hundreds of kaleidoscopic vignettes, Mirrors is a magic mosaic of our humanity.

Este es un libro realmente extraordinario: la obra más original y madura de Richard J. Evans. Definirlo como una historia de Europa entre la caída de Napoleón y el estallido de la primera guerra mundial resulta insuficiente; porque lo que Evans nos ofrece es una apasionante interpretación de la formación del mundo moderno, a través de una serie de ventanas que no sólo se abren sobre un panorama de gobiernos, guerras y revoluciones, sino que nos describen el cambio de la sociedad (la emancipación de los siervos, la formación de la clase obrera...), la conquista de la naturaleza, la expresión de las emociones... Hasta llegar a la época en que los conflictos internos y la rivalidad entre las potencias imperiales condujo al estallido de la Gran Guerra. Evans construye con estos materiales un relato fascinante, puntuado por las vidas de una serie de personajes arrastrados por las corrientes de su tiempo.

One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career. The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America. Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel García Márquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master. Alternately reverential and comical, One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race.

In this timeless and deeply learned classic, poet and translator Robert Bly offers nothing less than a new vision of what it means to be a man. Bly's vision is based on his ongoing work with men, as well as on reflections on his own life. He addresses the devastating effects of remote fathers and mourns the disappearance of male initiation rites in our culture. Finding rich meaning in ancient stories and legends, Bly uses the Grimm fairy tale "Iron John"Ñin which a mentor or "Wild Man" guides a young man through eight stages of male growthÑto remind us of ways of knowing long forgotten, images of deep and vigorous masculinity centered in feeling and protective of the young. At once down-to-earth and elevated, combining the grandeur of myth with the practical and often painful lessons of our own histories, Iron John is an astonishing work that will continue to guide and inspire menÑand womenÑfor years to come.

In 1879 the USS Jeanette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds and a frenzy of publicity. The ship and its crew, captained by the heroic George De Long, were heading for glory and the last unmapped area of the globe: the North Pole. But it was not long before the Jeanette was trapped in crushing pack ice. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew found themselves marooned a thousand miles north of Siberia with only the barest supplies, facing a seemingly impossible trek across the endless ice. Battling everything from snow blindness and polar bears to ferocious storms and frosty labyrinths, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for survival. With twists and turns worthy of a thriller, In the Kingdom of Ice is a spellbinding tale of heroism and determination in the most unforgiving territory on Earth.
