Free books to read or listen online in a convenient form, a large collection, the best authors and series. One of the great revelations of William Shawcross's official biography of the Queen Mother was her private correspondence. Indeed, the Sunday Times described her letters as "wonderful. brimful of liveliness and irreverence, steeliness and sweetness. Now, drawing on the vast wealth of material in the Royal Archives and at Glamis Castle and elsewhere, William Shawcross has put together a selection of those letters, many of which have never before been published.

Problems of this book are these: 1- This book isn't linear, except on its last half. 2- I wanted more information about the six months before the fall of the Shah. 3- The paper where this good book was printed has a terrible quality

I was living in Cambodia when I came across this book, following the recommendation of an English friend. I bought the book, opened it... and could no longer put it down! This book came as a complete eye-opener to me, on both how America had conducted its war across Indochina and on Cambodia's history which, for the better and the worse, has been so intimately intermixed with Sihanouk's.

If you are into learning the backside of "official history", then this book's for you. You will no longer look at Kissinger, Nixon or Westmoreland with the same candid, awe-filled, obedient eyes after reading it. Packed with previously unheard-of accounts, reports, testimonies, following a clean, highly intelligent argumentation methodology, Sideshow acts as a real bulldozer on the reader, repeatedly releasing and depicting loads of devastating illustrations of unsound decisions, hidden political actions, secret wars of influences etc. with the consequences that we all know now. It is certainly one of the punchiest, journalism-based historical accounts I have ever read, whatever the subject.

It shed a completely new and dramatic light onto the country I was a guest of then, and forever changed the way I looked at politics, diplomacy and intelligence.

Chilling history. At a friend's recommendation, I read this before a trip to Cambodia, and it gave me a much deeper understanding of the sufferings of these people, and a sense of horror at the politics involved.

Though the book itself was in alright condition, as advertised, the book which I received bore a distinct visual difference from what was advertised; I purchased from this buyer because the photo depicted the larger edition of Sideshow, complete with red cover and, I had assumed,larger print. I can't say if this assumption is correct because I did not receive a book with a cover even remotely resembling the product photo. The book I received was the small version, with an entirely different cover art. While this may seem like a petty complaint, the underlying problem is that I was not accurately shown what I was buying, made doubly frustrating when I payed more to buy from this vendor specifically because I thought I was getting the larger version which, I have been told, is much less of an eye-strain to read. I would not buy from this vendor again; if possible, I recommend forking out the extra few cents to get something from another vendor. This way, at least, you will likely know exactly what it is that you're buying.

A lethal piece of very well written research on the operation of US foreign policy. As more recently seen in Iraq, the power of the executive branch in this country to engage in war while grossly misleading the public - and Congress - has horrendous consequences for those "freed by bombing." Whilst not particular to Cambodia as Vietnam received most of the B-52 tonnage during the war, the Ark Light raids flown out of either Guam or Thailand with the modified B-52B that had a design capacity to carry 30 tons of iron bombs were usually flown in arrowhead formations of three planes that could obliterate a "box" two miles long and over a half a mile wide. There is a graphic in the book showing the 1973 month-by-month B-52 raids over Cambodia as dots on the map of the country; by the end of the bombing campaign the country is pretty well covered with dots. Folks on the ground never saw it coming - the planes flew in the stratosphere beyond sight or sound. USAF statistics show 126,615 B-52 missions were flown in the war (Laos, Cambodia, South and North Vietnam) with an average bomb load of 14 tons. Since these bombs use RDX that's 1.5x as powerful as TNT per unit of weight the equivalent of 2,659 kilotons was dropped on these countries, 177x the explosive force of the nuke dropped on Hiroshima. However, the "B-52 only" number greatly understates to total dropped on these nations as other aircraft were employed; Laos alone received 2.5 million tons of bombs, more than dropped by the USA, Britain and Germany in Europe in WWII, one bomb load every eight minutes, 24/7 for eight years, including 270 million cluster bombs, about a quarter of which did not detonate - yet, a great testament to the lunatics that run the show in D.C.
An enlightening book about a forgotten country that we helped destroy, through political decisions and State Dept support.
