Winter Soldier by Iraq Veterans Against the War, Aaron Glantz

Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupations by Iraq Veterans Against the War, Aaron Glantz
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 207 MB
Overview: “The only way this war is going to end is if the American people truly understand what we have done in their name.” (Kelly Dougherty, executive director of Iraq Veterans Against the War)
In spring 2008, inspired by the Vietnam-era Winter Soldier hearings, Iraq Veterans Against the War gathered veterans to expose war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq. Here are the powerful words, images, and documents of this historic gathering, which show the reality of life in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Iraq Veterans Against the War argues that well-publicized incidents of American brutality like the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the massacre of an entire family of Iraqis in the town of Haditha are not the isolated incidents perpetrated by “a few bad apples,” as many politicians and military leaders have claimed. They are part of a pattern, the group says, of “an increasingly bloody occupation.”

Nixon in Winter by Monica Crowley (.M4B)

Nixon in Winter: His Final Revelations About Diplomacy, Watergate, and Life Out of the Aren by Monica Crowley
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 490 MB
Overview: During the last four years of Richard Nixon’s life, Monica Crowley served as his foreign-policy assistant and political confidante – a trusted member of the small circle of advisers with whom he shared hours of daily one-on-one conversations.
This is the remarkable story of the final public and private years of the 37th president, based on full reconstructions of the conversations Crowley had with him at the time.
Nixon in Winter puts the listener behind the scenes with the former president, allowing a unique glimpse into his life as elder statesman and private citizen. It is filled with dramatic revelations about Nixon’s influential role on the world stage, whether taking action himself to guide American foreign policy or whispering advice to his successors. His hardheaded views on the end of the cold war, his emotional final trip to China, his powerful inside role during the 1991 Persian Gulf War, and his poignant thoughts on the legacy of Vietnam are recounted, as well as his frustrations with being out of power and with the foreign-policy failures of presidents Bush and Clinton.
With astonishing candor, Nixon also shares his final, startling thoughts of Watergate, including his assessments of all the major players in the scandal and what he would – and would not – have done differently. And he offers an uncompromising look at the way the sexual scandals surrounding the Kennedys, Bill Clinton, Clarence Thomas, and Robert Packwood have changed the politics of scandal.
Above all, he reveals a more private self than ever before as he reflects on his faith and his family, copes with the death of Mrs. Nixon, and struggles to deal with aging and the only force that could ultimately destroy him: death.
