One Shot One Kill by Charles W. Sasser, Craig Roberts

One Shot One Kill by Charles W. Sasser, Craig Roberts
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.8 MB
Overview: They are the lone wolves of the battlefield. Tracking the enemy, lying in wait for the target to appear – then they shoot to kill. Armed with an unerring eye, infinite patience and a mastery of camouflage, combat snipers stalk the enemy with only one goal…

In World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Beirut, American snipers

honed the art of delivering a single deadly shot from nowhere – and devastating enemy morale. They met the enemy on his own turf, picking off officers, unwary soldiers, and even other snipers from extraordinary distances of up to 1 ½ miles. Now, these uncommon men tell their stories: of the emotions felt when a man’s face came into their crosshairs and they pulled the trigger, of the nerve-wracking hours and days of waiting, motionless, for the enemy.

Surprise, Kill, Vanish by Annie Jacobsen

Surprise, Kill, Vanish: The Secret History of CIA Paramilitary Armies, Operators, and Assassins by Annie Jacobsen
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 541 MB
Overview: Surprise.your target. Kill.your enemy. Vanish.without a trace.
From Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen, the untold story of the CIA’s secret paramilitary units.
When diplomacy fails and war is unwise, the president calls on the CIA’s Special Activities Division, a highly classified branch of the CIA and the most effective black-operations force in the world. Originally known as the president’s guerrilla warfare corps, SAD conducts risky and ruthless operations that have evolved over time to defend America from its enemies. Almost every American president since World War II has asked the CIA to conduct sabotage, subversion, and yes, assassination.
With unprecedented access to 42 men and women who proudly and secretly worked on CIA covert operations from the dawn of the Cold War to the present day, along with declassified documents and deep historical research, Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen unveils – like never before – a complex world of individuals working in treacherous environments populated with killers, connivers, and saboteurs. Despite Hollywood notions of off-book operations and external secret hires, covert action is actually one piece in a colossal foreign policy machine.
Written with the pacing of a thriller, Surprise, Kill, Vanish brings to vivid life the sheer pandemonium and chaos, as well as the unforgettable human will to survive and the intellectual challenge of not giving up hope that define paramilitary and intelligence work. Jacobsen’s exclusive interviews – with members of the CIA’s Senior Intelligence Service (equivalent to the Pentagon’s generals), its counterterrorism chiefs, targeting officers, and Special Activities Division’s Ground Branch operators who conduct today’s close-quarters killing operations around the world – reveal, for the first time, the enormity of this shocking, controversial, and morally complex terrain. Is the CIA’s paramilitary army America’s weaponized strength or a liability to its principled standing in the world?

Mothers Who Kill Their Children by Cheryl L. Meyer +

Mothers Who Kill Their Children: Understanding the Acts of Moms from Susan Smith to the "Prom Mom" by Cheryl L. Meyer, Michelle Oberman, Kelly White, Michelle Rone
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.8 MB
Overview: A special kind of horror is reserved for mothers who kill their children. Cases such as those of Susan Smith, who drowned her two young sons by driving her car into a lake, and Melissa Drexler, who disposed of her newborn baby in a restroom at her prom, become media sensations. Unfortunately, in addition to these high-profile cases, hundreds of mothers kill their children in the United States each year. The question most often asked is, why? What would drive a mother to kill her own child?

Those who work with such cases, whether in clinical psychology, social services, law enforcement or academia, often lack basic understandings about the types of circumstances and patterns which might lead to these tragic deaths, and the social constructions of motherhood which may affect women’s actions. These mothers oftentimes defy the myths and media exploitation of them as evil, insane, or lacking moral principles, and they are not a homogenous group. In obvious ways, intervention strategies should differ for a teenager who denies her pregnancy and then kills her newborn and a mother who kills her two toddlers out of mental illness or to further a relationship. A typology is needed to help us to understand the different cases that commonly occur and the patterns they follow in order to make possible more effective prevention plans.
