Embark on an exploration of southern Cuba as writer JJ Mikel attempts to climb Pico Turquino-the tallest mountain on this largest of Caribbean islands-and encounters a world that is expansive, lush, and full of wonders. Along the way, he discovers that Cuba isn't quite Cuba, not really what we think of when we hear that word. For behind the faÃ§ade of decrepit Communism lurks a complex and startlingly beautiful country with a unique mix of cultures and a friendly, vibrant populace.
Samuel Lyman Atwood Marshall (1900-1977) was a chief U.S. Army combat historian during World War II and the Korean War. He authored some 30 books about warfare, including Pork Chop Hill: The American Fighting Man in Action, which was made into a film of the same name. Island Victory is the "story of the combat experiences of certain units of the 7th Infantry Division in the battle for the capture of Kwajalein [the southernmost and largest island in the Marshall Islands]" written from "the words of all men who fought and were not killed or badly wounded in the action."
The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) and the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) are located in the Pacific Ocean just north of the equator, about 3,000 miles south-west of Hawaii and about 2,500 miles south-east of Japan. The FSM is a federation of four semiautonomous states and has a population of approximately 103,000 (as of 2010) scattered over many small islands and atolls. The FSM states maintain considerable power, relative to the FSM National Government, to allocate U.S. assistance and implement budgetary policies. This book examines (1) the FSM's and RMI's use of compact funds in the education and health sectors; (2) the extent to which the FSM and RMI have made progress toward stated goals in education and health; and (3) the extent to which oversight activities by the FSM, RMI, and U.S. governments ensure accountability for compact funding and information on infrastructure spending.
