One of them, George H. W. Bush, was miraculously rescued. What happened to the other eight remained a secret for almost 60 years. <br /><br />After the war, the American and Japanese governments conspired to cover up the shocking truth, and not even the families of the airmen were informed of what happened to their sons.

2 Flags of Our Fathers

Author : James Bradley & Ron Powers
Genre :  Military  Books  History  Biographies & Memoirs 
Price :  $4.99
Release Date :  2000-05-02
Description :  <b>#1&#xa0;<i>NEW YORK TIMES&#xa0;</i>BESTSELLER •&#xa0;This is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America</b><br /><br />In this unforgettable chronicle of perhaps the most famous moment in American military history, James Bradley has captured the glory, the triumph, the heartbreak, and the legacy of the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America.<br /><br /> In February 1945, American Marines plunged into the surf at Iwo Jima—and into history. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, they battled to the island's highest peak. And after climbing through a landscape of hell itself, they raised a flag.<br /><br /> Now the son of one of the flagraisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever.<br /><br /> To his family, John Bradley never spoke of the photograph or the war. But after his death at age seventy, his family discovered closed boxes of letters and photos. In <i>Flags of Our Fathers,</i> James Bradley draws on those documents to retrace the lives of his father and the men of Easy Company. Following these men's paths to Iwo Jima, James Bradley has written a classic story of the heroic battle for the Pacific's most crucial island—an island riddled with Japanese tunnels and 22,000 fanatic defenders who would fight to the last man.<br /><br /> But perhaps the most interesting part of the story is what happened after the victory. The men in the photo—three were killed during the battle—were proclaimed heroes and flown home, to become reluctant symbols. For two of them, the adulation was shattering. Only James Bradley's father truly survived, displaying no copy of the famous photograph in his home, telling his son only: “The real heroes of Iwo Jima were the guys who didn't come back. ”<br /><br /> Few books ever have captured the complexity and furor of war and its aftermath as well as <i>Flags of Our Fathers</i>. A penetrating, epic look at a generation at war, this is history told with keen insight, enormous honesty, and the passion of a son paying homage to his father. It is the story of the difference between truth and myth, the meaning of being a hero, and the essence of the human experience of war.

On this trip, Taft concluded secret agreements in Roosevelt's name.<br /><br />In 2005, a century later, James Bradley traveled in the wake of Roosevelt's mission and discovered what had transpired in Honolulu, Tokyo, Manila, Beijing and Seoul.<br /><br />In 1905, Roosevelt was bully-confident and made secret agreements that he though would secure America's westward push into the Pacific. Instead, he lit the long fuse on the Asian firecrackers that would singe America's hands for a century.

Description :  "Bradley is sharp and rueful, and a voice for a more seasoned, constructive vision of our international relations with East Asia." --<i>Christian Science Monitor</i> <br />James Bradley introduces us to the prominent Americans--including FDR's grandfather, Warren Delano--who in the 1800s made their fortunes in the China opium trade. Meanwhile, American missionaries sought a myth: noble Chinese peasants eager to Westernize.<br /><br />The media propagated this mirage, and FDR believed that supporting Chiang Kai-shek would make China America's best friend in Asia. But Chiang was on his way out and when Mao Zedong instead came to power, Americans were shocked, wondering how we had "lost China."<br /><br />From the 1850s to the origins of the Vietnam War, Bradley reveals how American misconceptions about China have distorted our policies and led to the avoidable deaths of millions. <i>The China Mirage</i> dynamically explores the troubled history that still defines U.S.-Chinese relations today.

8 Improving Business Performance With Lean

Author : James Bradley
Genre :  Management & Leadership  Books  Business & Personal Finance 
Price :  $19.99
Release Date :  2012-01-13
Description :  This textbook is a concise introduction to the essential concepts and tools used in the &#34;Lean&#34; method of improving business processes; it constitutes a sufficient &#34;toolkit&#34; to enable a reader to successfully improve business processes in their workplace. While Lean was first applied in manufacturing, arguably evolving out of the Toyota Production System, it is now applied widely to service and administrative processes as well. Lean, in comparison with other business improvement processes such as Six Sigma, relies on intuitive concepts rather than complex mathematics. Thus, a short, non-technical, understandable, and engaging text can successfully convey the essential principles of Lean and empower the reader. Besides describing the concepts of Lean, plentiful examples and brief case studies illustrate the application of Lean in different contexts including manufacturing, healthcare, food service, administrative processes, distribution, and retail. Besides giving a clear idea of how to apply Lean in various contexts, the examples illustrate which Lean tools are most appropriate in the various contexts. This book focuses on &#34;how&#34; to do Lean in terms of what the Lean tools are and how to apply them. What this book is not is an in-depth coverage of other organizational issues associated with the successful implementation of Lean. Because these issues are important, very brief coverage is included in the Section/Chapter entitled &#34;Other Considerations in Lean.&#34; Each subsection in this chapter would be extremely brief and would outline the relevant issues, but in no way would thoroughly discuss these topics. References would be included here for those readers who wish to pursue future study in this area.
