<b>La réalité de l'enfer carcéral texan</b><br /><br />« Pouvez-vous vous imaginer un seul instant ce que cela fait de savoir qu’on va mourir ? Moi je le sais ! En cet enfer où je me trouve, je le vois tous les jours, je le sais tous les jours, je le vis tous les jours. Comment pourrais-je ne pas le vivre alors que mon travail, dans ce pénitencier, est de m’occuper des prisonniers du Couloir de la Mort ! »<br /><br />Un livre coup de poing, des mots qui poignardent ! Il raconte le temps qui passe trop vite, le temps qui stagne, la terreur du jour de l’exécution qui approche, la solitude, la folie, la haine, le racisme, la rage, la révolte, l’amour parfois ! La douleur des mères qui regardent leur enfant mourir, la rage des pères qui n’ont rien pu faire et les hurlements qui viennent du fond des oubliettes. La fin de l’espoir…<br />L’auteur les a écrits pour les faire entendre, pour que le monde civilisé sache ce qui se passe vraiment derrière les murs de béton du pénitencier texan, là où des hommes attendent la mort pendant parfois plus de 30 ans, là où d’autres hommes vivent la maltraitance, la faim et l’esclavage.<br /><br /><b>Le témoignage poignant d'un prisonnier américain condamné à tort.</b><br /><br />EXTRAIT<br /><br />J’ai eu à apprendre que l’amitié n’existe pas ici. Nous sommes bouclés en enfer et pourtant nous arrivons encore à nous malmener les uns les autres. Comment tant d’hommes qui subissent la même souffrance peuvent-ils se montrer aussi cruels les uns envers les autres ? Quand une souffrance partagée est à ce point immense, comment est-ce que tant de gens peuvent encore rester séparés les uns des autres ?<br />Ma vie était vraiment effroyable ! J’ai volé de la nourriture dans les cuisines, j’ai lavé les vêtements des autres, j’ai boxé pour pouvoir subvenir à mes besoins. Les prisonniers qui mangeaient ce qui sortait des cuisines tombaient malades comme des mouches. Nous savions que cette nourriture ne convenait pas à des hommes, mais quand on crève de faim, on n’a plus le choix.<br /><br />À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR<br /><br /><b>Tyree Bailey</b> est un Afro-Américain âgé de 38 ans. C’est un homme cultivé, parlant plusieurs langues. Il est incarcéré dans un pénitencier texan de haute sécurité. C’est par sa compagne depuis 2010, Julia, qu’il a pu nous faire parvenir ce recueil de témoignages qu’elle a traduits.

With the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the USA, America once again is forced to realize that the real threat to its liberties has always come, not from its foreign enemies, but from its enemies within. As the case for President Trump’s treason and impeachment is laid before the American public daily, the time has come to re-examine the treason of Benedict Arnold (Patriot-turned-Traitor), by using a comparative analysis with Donald Trump. Is Trump a traitor? Should Trump be impeached? At the very least, we must ask ourselves: Is Trump a Benedict Arnold? Benedict Donald? The answer is complex, controversial, and contradictory. It is a Shakespearean tragedy of epic proportions. The names change, the times change, but treason remains the same dark, despicable crime.

<b>“The aim of this book is twofold: first, that due credit be given to a gallant body of men, the United States Marine Corps, who in their path across the Pacific were faithful to their traditions and to their country; second, to point out the errors that were committed in World War II in such a manner that they will not be repeated in World War III — God forbid.” </b><br /><br />Controversial at times, Smith never wavered in his dedication to the Marine Corps and dedicated his career in support of the men and women under his command. <br /><br />Recipient of four Distinguished Service Medals, he initiated and supervised the training of U.S. Marines in the art of amphibious warfare and led them across the Pacific in one of the most phenomenal military advances of all times. <br /><br />On many occasions, as the reader will see, he pugnaciously struggled with peers and superiors to be allowed to fight.<br /><br />Although constantly in the public eye towards the latter years of the war, this memoir sheds light on Smith’s private opinions on the war, the mistakes that were made on the way to victory and the difficulties between the various factions of the U.S. forces.<br /> <br />These problems experienced particularly between the Marines, the Navy and the U.S. Army are closely examined in Smith’s memoir and he offers a unique insight into these clashes. <br /><br />He unceasingly, oftentimes controversially, defends the strategic importance of amphibious warfare in WWII and criticizes Naval interference in Marine tactical decisions. <br /><br />This autobiography also offers a glimpse of the man behind the intimidating facade, a man haunted by the sometimes unnecessary losses of Marine lives and the impact of his decisions in wartime. <br /><br />"He maintains throughout a manifest and unshakable belief that the United States Marines are the best land fighters in the world, and takes natural pride in his role as their long-suffering and outspoken champion." <em>The Alabama Review</em><br /><br />"Smith's account if the Pacific War as he fought it from Tarawa to Iwo Jima is of first-rate historical importance."<em>Foreign Affairs</em><br /><br /><em>Coral and Brass</em> is an important first-hand account of a celebrated military tactician, a must-read for those interested in the U.S. Marine Corps, military strategy and WWII operations. <br /><br /><b>Holland McTyeire “Howlin’ Mad” Smith</b>, (April 20, 1882 – January 12, 1967) was a general in the United States Marine Corps during World War II. He is sometimes called the “father” of modern U.S. amphibious warfare. A lieutenant general when he was retired May 15, 1946 at the age of 64, he was promoted to general on the retired list for having been especially commended in combat. This book was first published in 1949. Following a long illness, General Smith died January 12, 1967 at the U.S. Naval Hospital in San Diego, California, aged 84. <br /><br />

<b>Our Jungle Road to Tokyo, first published in 1950, is the World War II memoir of U.S. Army Lt. General Robert Eichelberger.</b><br /><br />Robert Lawrence Eichelberger (1886-1961) was a general officer in the United States Army who commanded the Eighth United States Army in the Southwest Pacific Area during World War II.<br /><br />A 1909 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he saw service in Panama and on the Mexican border before joining the American Expeditionary Force Siberia in 1918. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for repeated acts of bravery in Siberia. After the war, he transferred to the Adjutant General's Corps. He attended the Command and General Staff College and the Army War College, and was Secretary of the War Department General Staff, working for the Chief of Staff of the United States Army, General Douglas MacArthur.<br /><br />In 1940, Eichelberger became the Superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point. He instituted a number of reforms, cutting back activities such as horseback riding and close order drill, and substituting modern combat training, in which cadets participated in military exercises alongside National Guard units. He acquired Stewart Field as a training facility, which gave cadets a chance to qualify as pilots while still at West Point. He became commander of the 77th Infantry Division in March 1942, and I Corps in June.<br /><br />In August 1942, Eichelberger was abruptly sent to the Southwest Pacific Area, where he led American and Australian troops in the bloody Battle of Buna–Gona. In 1944, he had notable victories at Hollandia and the Battle of Biak. As Commanding General of the newly formed Eighth Army, Eichelberger led the invasion of the Southern Philippines clearing the islands of Mindoro, Marinduque, Panay, Negros, Cebu and Bohol. By July 1945, his forces had defeated the Japanese on Mindanao. In August 1945, Eichelberger's Eighth Army began a three-year stint as part of the Occupation of Japan. He retired from the Army at the end of 1948.
