The “extraordinarily informed” account of how US cryptographers broke Japan’s Purple cipher to change the course of World War II (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Marching Orders tells the story of how the American military’s breaking of the Japanese diplomatic Purple codes during World War II led to the defeat of Nazi Germany and hastened the end of the devastating conflict. With unprecedented access to over one million pages of US Army documents and thousands of pages of top-secret messages dispatched to Tokyo from the Japanese embassy in Berlin, author Bruce Lee offers a series of fascinating revelations about pivotal moments in the war. Challenging conventional wisdom, Marching Orders demonstrates how an American invasion of Japan would have resulted in massive casualties for both forces. Lee presents a thrilling day-by-day chronicle of the difficult choices faced by the American military brain trust and how, aware of Japan’s adamant refusal to surrender, the United States made the fateful decision to drop nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Hailed as “one of the most important books ever published on World War II” by Robert T. Crowley, an intelligence officer who later became a senior executive at the CIA, Marching Orders unveils the untold stories behind some of the Second World War’s most critical events, bringing them to vivid life. With this book, “many of the mysteries that have eluded historians since the end of the war are much clarified: the Pearl Harbor fiasco, D-Day, why the Americans let the Russians capture Berlin, and why the decision to drop the atomic bomb was made. This is the most significant publication about World War II since the recent series of books on the Ultra revelations” (Library Journal). It’s a story that, as historian Robin W. Winks said, “no one with the slightest interest in World War II or in the origins of the Cold War can afford to ignore.”

Clive Hopkins's parents were Salvation Army Officers, which meant their sons had to endure six hours of religious meetings every Sunday (and no football), most kinds of pleasure (including girls) were off limits and friendships were disrupted by frequent moves to new postings. When finally at the age of 14 Clive was coerced into becoming a Soldier himself, it was a step too far, and like his older brother he rebelled and became a 'backslider'. He has now written this entertaining and moving memoir of a youth spent trying to balance the desire to enjoy a normal boyhood with the demands of his parents' calling. In his story, Clive captures evocatively a lost world - and finally resolves a family mystery.

As a Marine officer, Dan McGuire learned the "operations order"- the standard five-part procedure that militaries use to conduct combat missions. Today he's a theologian and evangelist, and in Marching Orders he adapts the operations order to the mission of spiritual combat: the battle to save souls. Each of us is charged by our commander-in-chief Jesus Christ with the solemn mission to preach the gospel to the whole world (Matt. 28:16-20). This is not an optional duty, meant only for the exceptionally smart, holy, or extroverted- it's for all of us. Nor is it a job for the fainthearted. It takes virtues like courage and resolve, inner strength and daily acts of conversion. And it takes smart planning. In Marching Orders, Dr. McGuire gives you the virtue-building tools and resources-your weapons for the fight- you need to be a faithful disciple, and a battle-tested plan for turning your faith into evangelism. Your mission is to spread the Faith. Do you accept?

MARRIAGE UNDER FIRE Anna Caldwell hadn't planned on spending her honeymoon dodging bullets in the Texas chaparral with a husband who couldn't even remember her! Or their unborn child… Combat Rescue Officer Rafe McQuade had saved Anna's life, fathered the baby she carried and asked her to be his bride…but had no recollection of any of it. And unless he could unlock the secrets in his mind, rogue terrorists had no qualms about using his pregnant wife as a bargaining chip. Rafe didn't need his memory to know how much Anna—and his family—meant to him; he did need everything in his power to complete the most dangerous mission of his career. Lives, and his marriage, were on the line…
