A Dirty Little War is the previously untold eyewitness story of Indonesia's sustained campaign of terror from 1997 to 1999 against one of Australia's closest neighbours. Written with urgency and compassion by a world-renowned Australian journalist, it is a story filled with drama, horror, human interest, political intrigue - and even the odd flash of black humour. For many years, John Martinkus was the only journalist in East Timor. He travelled with guerillas and unearthed the secret war Indonesia was waging against this fledgling nation - a war that eventually erupted and led to Australia's troops being called in. His work has been praised by Timorese leaders including Xanana Gusmao and Jose Ramos Horta. His compelling and passionate reports were published as lead stories in the global media; and in Australia, the editor of the Daily Telegraph acknowledged John, who was then writing for the AAP and AP, as the journalist responsible for rallying public opinion in support of the deployment of Australian peacekeepers to the region. His news stories were used as source material by the Australian Senate, the UN and Amnesty International. This is the insider's view of that 'dirty little war'; a first-hand and deeply personal account of a shocking period in our region's history told in a gripping fashion.

Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War allows us to see what really happened to American forces in Southeast Asia, separating popular myth from explosive reality in a clear, concise manner. Containing more than two hundred examinations of different aspects of the war, the book questions why the American military ignored the lessons taught by previous encounters with insurgency forces; probes the use of group think and mind control by the North Vietnamese; and explores the role technology played in shaping the way the war was fought. Of course, the book also reveals the "dirty little secrets," the truth behind such aspects of the conflict as the rise of the Montagnard mercenaries--the most feared group of soldiers participating in the secret war in Laos-and the details of the hidden struggle for the Ho Chi Minh Trail. With its unique and perceptive examination of the conflict, Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War by James F. Dunnigan & Albert A. Nofi offers a critical addition to the library of Vietnam War history.

This follow up to 'Garuda's Travels: Sins and Redemption' is a collection of essays teased and taunted from bashing around old haunts. It may rant and rail, but muses on dirty politics, dirty hygiene, and some simply filthy behaviour. All the while the Dirty Little War wages in the background. After a month crawling on the borders of Southern Thailand, Vanya attempts to understand the dirty little war that over a decade has killed over 6000 people. Two years later, he does a few more border runs into Insurgent territory, testing his mettle. In-between ducking in and out of every immigration check point on the Thai- Malay border, Vanya Vetto does a few detours along the way to get the low down of terrorism. When he's not jumping at his own shadow, he's on top of his game, visiting a Muslim cemetery, drinking at a grungy bar in Batam, annoying staff at an Indian tea house in Johor, or reading a banned Needham book in public in Singapore. A Dirty Little War is in many ways his own battle campaign against himself. This book does not entertain redemption, fair warning. He's well beyond that stage. 'Most of the world doesn't even know that Thailand has been fighting a war with Muslim insurgents along it's southern border for more than thirty years now. The impact on civilians has been brutal almost beyond imagining, but the news coverage (even within Thailand) is almost negligible. The simple truth is almost no one really gives a shit about all the innocents who have died...' Jake Needham, author of A Girl in The Window.

Dirty Little Secrets of World War II exposes the dark, irreverent, misunderstood, and often tragicomic aspects of military operations during World War II, many of them virtually unknown even to military buffs. Like its successful predecessor, Dirty Little Secrets, Dunnigan and Nofi's new book vividly brings to life all theaters and participants of the war. Revelations include: - The real death count for the war, and why it has never been previously released. - The "new age" general who refused to smoke or drink, who lived on a vitamin-enriched diet, who opposed animal experimentation, and who regularly consulted his astrologer. - How equipment developed for the war led to such modern high-tech innovations as "smart bombs," electronic warfare, and nuclear missles. - The lackadaisical relationship between Germany and Japan throughout the war. - Tricky bits of information about the lingering effects of the war -- like the thousands of live shells and mines that are still buried in Europe and off the East Coast of America.

The Chechen War was supposed to be over in 1996 after the first Yeltsin campaign, but in the summer of 1999, the new Putin government decided, in their own words, to 'do the job properly'. Before all the bodies of those who had died in the first campaign had been located or identified, many more thousands would be slaughtered in another round of fighting. The first account to be written by a Russian woman, A Dirty War is an edgy and intense study of a conflict that shows no sign of being resolved. Exasperated by the Russian government's attempt to manipulate media coverage of the war, journalist Anna Politkovskaya undertook to go to Chechnya, to make regular reports and keep events in the public eye. In a series of despatches from July 1999 to January 2001 she vividly describes the atrocities and abuses of war, whether it be the corruption endemic in post-Communist Russia, in particular the government and the military, or the spurious arguments and abominable behaviour of the Chechen authorities. In these courageous reports, Politkovskaya excoriates male stupidity and brutality on both sides of the conflict and interviews the civilians whose homes and communities have been laid waste, leaving them nowhere to live, and nothing and no one to believe in.
