Download and read online The Trident in PDF and EPUB Decorated US Navy SEAL lieutenant Jason Redman served his country courageously and with distinction in Colombia, Peru, Afghanistan, and Iraq, where he commanded mobility and assault forces. He conducted over forty capture/kill missions with his men in Iraq, locating more than 120 al-Qaida insurgents. But his journey was not without supreme challenges—both emotional and physical. Redman is brutally honest about his struggles to learn how to be an effective leader, yet that effort pales beside the story of his critical wounding in 2007 while leading a mission against a key al-Qaida commander. On that mission his team was ambushed and he was struck by machine-gun fire at point-blank range. During the intense recovery period that followed, Redman gained national attention when he posted a sign on his door at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, warning all who entered not to "feel sorry for [his] wounds." His sign became both a statement and a symbol for wounded warriors everywhere. From his grueling SEAL training to his search for a balance between arrogance and humility, Redman shares it all in this inspiring and unforgettable account. He speaks candidly of the grit that sustained him despite grievous wounds, and of the extraordinary love and devotion of his wife, Erica, and his family, without whom he would not have survived. Vivid and powerful, emotionally resonant and illuminating, The Trident traces the evolution of a modern warrior, husband, and father, a man who has come to embody the never-say-die spirit that defines the SEALs, one of America's elite fighting forces.
Download and read online The Trident Deception in PDF and EPUB "The best submarine novel since Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October." —Booklist (starred review) The USS Kentucky—a Trident ballistic missile submarine carrying a full complement of 192 nuclear warheads—is about to go on a routine patrol. Not long after it reaches the open sea, however, the Kentucky receives a launch order. After receiving that launch order, it is cut off from all counter-orders and disappears into the Pacific while it makes the eight-day transit to the launch site. What the Kentucky's crew doesn't know is that those launch orders haven't actually come from the U.S. government. Rogue elements within the Mossad have learned that Iran has developed its first nuclear weapon and, in ten days, will detonate it—and the target is Israel. The suspected weapon complex is too far underground for conventional weapons to harm it, and the only choice is a pre-emptive nuclear strike. With limited time, this rogue group initiates a long-planned operation called the Trident Deception. They'll transmit false orders and use a U.S. nuclear submarine to launch the attack. In this thriller from Rick Campbell, with only 8 days before the Kentucky is in launch range and with the submarine cut off from any outside communication, one senior officer, the father of one of the officers aboard the submarine, must assemble and lead a team of attack submarines to find, intercept and neutralize the Kentucky before it can unknowingly unleash a devastating nuclear attack.
Download and read online The Eagle and the Trident in PDF and EPUB An insider’s account of the complex relations between the United States and post-Soviet Ukraine The Eagle and the Trident provides the first comprehensive account of the development of U.S. diplomatic relations with an independent Ukraine, covering the years 1992 through 2004 following the collapse of the Soviet Union. The United States devoted greater attention to Ukraine than any other post-Soviet state (except Russia) after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Steven Pifer, a career Foreign Service officer, worked on U.S.-Ukraine relations at the State Department and the White House during that period and also served as ambassador to Ukraine. With this volume he has written the definitive narrative of the ups and downs in the relationship between Washington and newly independent Ukraine. The relationship between the two countries moved from heady days in the mid- 1990s, when they declared a strategic partnership, to troubled times after 2002. During the period covered by the book, the United States generally succeeded in its major goals in Ukraine, notably the safe transfer of nearly 2,000 strategic nuclear weapons left there after the Soviet collapse. Washington also provided robust support for Ukraine’s effort to develop into a modern, democratic, market-oriented state. But these efforts aimed at reforming the state proved only modestly successful, leaving a nation that was not resilient enough to stand up to Russian aggression in Crimea in 2014. The author reflects on what worked and what did not work in the various U.S. approaches toward Ukraine. He also offers a practitioner’s recommendations for current U.S. policies in the context of ongoing uncertainty about the political stability of Ukraine and Russia’s long-term intentions toward its smaller but important neighbor.

Download and read online Rome Seizes the Trident in PDF and EPUB Seapower played a greater part in ancient empire building than is often appreciated. The Punic Wars, especially the first, were characterized by massive naval battles. The Romans did not even possess a navy of their own when war broke out between them and the Carthaginians in Sicily in 264 B.C. Prior to that, the Romans had relied upon several South Italian Greek cities to provide ships in the same way as its other allies provided soldiers to serve with the legions. The Romans were nevertheless determined to acquire a navy that could challenge that of Carthage. They used a captured galley as a model, reverse engineered it, and constructed hundreds of copies. The Romans used this new navy to wrench maritime superiority from the Carthaginians, most notably at the Battle of Ecnomus where they prevailed through the use of novel tactics. Although not decisive on its own, Rome's new found naval power was, as Marc De Santis shows, a vital component in their ultimate victory in each of the three Punic Wars.

Download and read online Building the Trident Network in PDF and EPUB In Building the Trident Network, Maggie Mort approaches the United Kingdom's Trident submarine and missile system as a sociotechnical network. Drawing on the sociology of scientific and technical knowledge and on actor-network theory, Mort recounts how the Trident program was stabilized in the United Kingdom and brought into "successful" production. She uncovers the nature of this success by retelling unofficial histories of Trident, of production roads not taken, and of potential technological "distractions." The production of Trident, she shows, was not inevitable but contingent and problematic.Using material from interviews and local texts, Mort explores the emergence of a counternetwork in the form of a workers' campaign for alternative technologies. She develops concepts of "disenrollment" and "absent intermediaries," in which redundant workers and marginalized technologies serve to discipline and reinforce the dominant network as production shrinks. She also examines the maintenance of the barrier between the technical and the social/political in this context. The management of uncertainties within the Trident production program emerges as critical to its successful completion.

Download and read online The Trident Society in PDF and EPUB Prologue-A tyranny ago The dawn sky was stained with blood. Masked scanned the sky sharply. A kestrel was being tormented by the slaughtering gales. He transfixed his sockets on it. Relaxing his belt, he clutched the poniard suspended from it. Five gruelling marks of crimson from afresh were the source of the corpses sprawled ruthlessly over his shoulders. They were the ruins of the evidence. They were the ones that would warn the Authorities of his breeding vengeance on the prophesised heir. Already Cleavestone had been assassinated whilst at the banquet room, Masked threatening a trusted man of the Veiled Five to forge a betrayal by stabbing him in the back by surprise. Later the man, Moranin, a secretive disciple of Masked had broken out of the Roshcvain Prisons and, once again, threatened lethally by Masked, united into Masked’s thriving forces. He held its blade up to the sun luringly. Greed filled the kestrel’s eyes. It swooped. Its beak was unlatched, a ravenous forked tongue rearing at the kill. The kestrel had torn apart the dishwater mist that overhung the hilltops. It further descended from the skies. Masked whistled fluently over the warring storm. After a slowing, fluttering motion it perched itself over Masked’s shoulder. The kestrel’s beak seemed to cringe aback, uncomfortable, but then grappled the kill with greed-filled eyes. Masked had starved it for the last fortnight, depriving it for its failure of gathering the Locket. After it had satisfied its hunger, it plummeted to the ground and shape shifted into the Albino Bengal Tiger he preferred to use as his form. “Gladiatorial,” he hissed softly, “where is the Locket.” The cat prodded a chained ornament forward. Masked unfastened the lid. There basked the legendary Shaman’s Recipe upon his gauntlet. “I have been a golem-bound far too long. The Tongue will be my name; Wolftongue. All will fear my presence and I will avenge the one whose Ancestor has sculpted me as a mere library of stone, a golem. He is the descendant of John Murder, Cleavestone. But he is tragically dead. I unfortunately did not get to do the honours. But I am determined to. I made a miscalculation-his wife’s pregnancy. But I could work this to my advantage; the heir to the throne will be the one to assassinate myself and fulfil my vengeance. The Shaman’s Recipe will be destroyed. All’s hope of rebelling against my prolonged vengeance will be in vain,” he cocked his bicorne arrogantly. Masked sheathed his poniard, dwarfed by a larger rapier skinning the air. A grin was evident through the slitted iron mask. He plunged the rapier downward into the shrieking parchment. It perished into ashen remains. After a blinding flare of radiance besieging the shire, all the surroundings were turned to forbidding stone-cold wastelands. But Masked’s soulless statue was all that stood stone-bound. His soul possessed a ruler, an avenger. The iron-faced Tongue...
