April 9, 2003: An AP photographer captures a striking image seen around the world of the Gunny Sergeant smoking a victory cigar in his tank, the haunting statue of Saddam Hussein hovering in the background. Popaditch is immortalized forever as ´´The Cigar Marine.´´ April 6, 2004: The tanker fights heroically in the battle for Fallujah and suffers grievous head wounds that leave him legally blind and partially deaf. The USMC awards him with a Silver Star for his valor and combat innovation. April 18, 2004: ´´Gunny Pop´´ comes home to face the toughest fight of his life - a battle to remain the man and Marine he was.

Listeners in and out of the military will stand up and cheer for this valiant Marine´s Marine, a man who embodies everything noble and proud in the Corps´ long tradition. Never has modern mechanized combat seemed so immediate and real, or the fight in Iraq seemed so human and worth believing in.

As the seriousness and permanence of his disabilities become more evident, Nick fights to remain in the Corps in any capacity, to help the brothers in arms he so aches to rejoin. Facing the inevitable following a medical retirement, he battles for rightful recognition and compensation for his permanent disabilities. Throughout his harrowing ordeal, Nick fights to maintain his honor and loyalty, waging all these battles the same way - the Marine way - because anything less would be a betrayal of all he holds dear. 1.

Tess O´Rourke dreams of becoming the first female chief of police in Long Beach, California. As commander of the East Division, she is well on her way...until the night she responds to an officer-needs-assistance call and fatally shoots an unarmed teenager. Despite being cleared of wrongdoing by a grand jury, Tess is so hounded by the public that she takes a job in Oregon to escape the bad press. Winning over the residents of Rogue´s Hollow might be more difficult than adjusting to her new role as police chief in the small backwater town - especially when her closest friend, the pastor´s wife, goes missing and the woman´s cousin is found shot. Tess finds an ally in sheriff´s deputy Steve Logan, but as they track down Rogue´s Hollow´s first murderer, she worries that she´s breaking one of her rules and getting too close to him. 1.

Rorke Denver trains the men who become Navy SEALs - the most creative problem solvers on the modern battlefield, ideal warriors for the kinds of wars America is fighting now. With his years of action-packed mission experience and a top training role, Lieutenant Commander Denver understands exactly how tomorrow’s soldiers are recruited, sculpted, motivated, and deployed. Now, Denver takes you inside his personal story and the fascinating, demanding SEAL training program he now oversees. He recounts his experience evolving from a young SEAL hopeful pushing his way through Hell Week, into a warrior engaging in dangerous stealth missions across the globe, and finally into a lieutenant commander directing the indoctrination, requalification programs, and the ´´Hero or Zero” missions his SEALs undertake. From his own SEAL training and missions overseas, Denver details how the SEALs’ creative operations became front and center in America’s War on Terror - and how they are altering warfare everywhere.

Black Wolf has gravely wounded one of the mission guards, and while fleeing is seen by Lucita, the daughter of the new Colonel, a devout Catholic and loyal Spanish subject. Her heart is captured by Black Wolf´s powerful gaze and fierce heart, but she knows her passion for the half-naked warrior is forbidden by her father. The Colonel intends her to take the hand of a Spanish businessman, but she instead flees to Black Wolf´s side. With the warrior she discovers that there is more than one kind of faith in the world, and that love can bridge two very different hearts and cultures. 1. Language: English.

He was a flashy, high-rolling con man...a militant street hustler...a front man for the mob.... On TV and in the movies, FBI undercover agents are a dime a dozen. But in reality, only an elite handful have the unique combination of wit, instinct, and daring to work these highly dangerous scams. For 10 years, Larry Wansley was one of them. A former detective bureau commander with the Compton, California police department, Wansley graduated from the FBI Academy in 1973. After nabbing a Texas bank robber, he went underground in Los Angeles as part of the bureau´s massive search for Patty Hearst. Then came the big sting: Operation Tarpit with another agent to play his high-living partner in crime - and the unwitting help of two talkative hookers. Wansley, called ´´Mandrake´´ by his fellow agents, set up a two-year, L.A.-based operation that netted 300 phony stock and bond dealers, truck hijackers, kidnappers, gun-runners, and killers - and recovered $42 million in stolen property. From there, Wansley moved coast-to-coast, working his scams on redneck southern crime bosses, kiddie porn producers, New York Mafia wiseguys, and more - and living each day with the heart-stopping knowledge that one wrong move meant death.... 1.

From the Trail of Tears to Wounded Knee and Little Bighorn, the narrative of American history is incomplete without the inclusion of the Native Americans that lived on the continent before European settlers arrived in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since the first contact between natives and settlers, tribes like the Sioux, Cherokee, and Navajo have both fascinated and perplexed outsiders with their history, language, and culture. The Shoshone are still remembered for their assistance, especially Sacagawea, and they maintained contact with Americans throughout the 19th century, but unfortunately, the cooperation gave way to conflict as white settlers began to move westward and enter onto lands occupied by the Shoshone. In 1862, California officials sent the Third California Volunteer Infantry under the command of Colonel Patrick Connor to construct a fort (Fort Douglas) in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains above Salt Lake City, in an effort to keep lines of communication open so pioneers would not be hesitant about settling in the region. Meanwhile, Shoshone Chief Bear Hunter (Wirasuap) led his band on raids against mining camps and Mormon settlements.In January 1863, Colonel Connor led 300 volunteers out of the newly completed Fort Douglas through 140 miles of bitter cold to reach Chief Bear Hunter´s camp on the eastern shore of the Great Salt Lake, culminating in what would become known as the Bear River Massacre at Preston, Idaho. During the fighting, Connor´s men trapped and killed an estimated 350 to 500 Northwestern Shoshone, including women, children, and the elderly. According to William Hull, a local settler sent to look for survivors, ´´After killing most of the men and many of the children, they raped and assaulted the women. In some cases, soldiers held the feet of infants by the heel and beat their brains out on any hard substance they could find. Women who resisted the soldiers were shot and killed.
