The Gold House (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: The Gold House trilogy is the most comprehensively documented account ever published on Victorio Peak, a mountain located on White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico with an astounding history. The story begins in the 1930s at a place called Hembrillo Basin, a rugged desert region where E.M. “Doc” Noss and his wife, Ova, found a vast treasure, a discovery unmatched in the northern hemisphere. The first book in the trilogy, The Discovery, presents events from the days after the finding of the gold hoard—worth billions at today’s prices—through the murder of Doc Noss in 1949 and the eviction of Ova from the treasure site by military personnel in 1955. Ova’s eviction was followed by a string of thefts by military personnel, civilians and outright criminals, a windfall for those who helped themselves to the gold. More information may be found at www.victoriopeak.com.

Sample Reviews:

“After a cursory glance at the index and certain key pages, I was hooked, unable to close the covers of this unique story about a fortune in gold and the abuses of power. The three volumes of The Gold House present adventure, intrigue, murder, deepest politics and billions of dollars in gold. The trail of witnesses and paper and gold extractions seem to never end. In other words, the evidence is overwhelming, a monumental gathering of the facts and the presentation of those facts by John Clarence and Tom Whittle; America is greatly benefited by these two men. … LBJ’s lawyers had a secret trove of his corruption in the penthouse files locked away in their bank in downtown Austin. Surprisingly, the records were still there at the end of 2011. They should be recovered, uncovered and disclosed.
“The profound service The Gold House trilogy gives to America takes on its own special value. Be assured that these three volumes present enough polygraph exams, bank records, warehouse receipts and much more; more than enough to take to a jury, and win. The authors say it best: ‘A story of the erosion of the rule of law by our government leaders and the attack on our freedoms in America.’ Thank you, John Clarence and Tom Whittle: Hollywood cannot be far behind.”
—Barr McClellan, attorney and New York Times bestselling author (Mr. McClellan was an attorney for LBJ and the Johnson interests from 1966 through 1977.)

“They say America operates on the Golden Rule––those who have the gold, make the rules. Nowhere does this old bromide hold truer than in The Gold House trilogy by John Clarence and Tom Whittle. This astounding and disturbing story moves the reader from a gold strike in the 1930s through a 1949 murder and later in time into the highest levels of the U.S. Government and the military at White Sands....”
–– Jim Marrs, journalist and New York Times best-selling author

“Prepare to be astounded, shocked, and thoroughly engrossed by this incredible true story that John Clarence & Thomas Whittle have meticulously researched and written. The product of 10 years of research and writing, The Gold House trilogy has been read and reviewed by prominent authors and scholars who support the charges leveled by the authors against the government and numerous individuals. The books are packed with photos, endnotes, and an index.
The end result is a trilogy beyond the reader’s wildest imagination —they blow the lid off a conspiracy of silence in this extraordinary story of government corruption that rivals Watergate. I also predict that The Gold House will be a major motion picture and result in a Congressional investigation. That’s how big and important this true story is.”
–––Marc D.

The War in the West Trilogy (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:
The Second World War is one of the most significant conflicts in history, but for seven decades our understanding of the war has remained mostly fixed, framed by the accounts of participants and an early generation of historians. James Holland, one of the leading young historians of World War II, has spent over a decade conducting new research, interviewing survivors, and exploring archives that have never before been so accessible to unearth forgotten memoirs, letters, and official records. In The Rise of Germany, Holland draws on this research to reconsider the strategy, tactics, and economic, political, and social aspects of the war. The Rise of Germany is a masterful book that redefines our understanding of the opening years of World War II. Beginning with the lead-up to the outbreak of war in 1939 and ending in the middle of 1941 on the eve of Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of Russia, The Rise of Germany is a landmark history of the war on land, in the air, and at sea.

Historic Valor (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

CUSTER AND THE BATTLE OF THE LITTLE BIGHORN


It was the greatest show the country had ever seen. In fact, it was the nation’s crowning achievement, a spectacle of wonder to showcase to the world how far America had come—and how far it was still to go.

The official name was the 1876 International Exhibition of Arts, Manufacturers, and Products of the Soil and Mine, but everyone referred to it as the Centennial Exhibition. It would be visited by almost ten million people—one in five Americans at that time.

On this day, the eighty miles of asphalt walkways were crowded with hundreds of thousands of excited visitors from all over the world. The relentless beating sun was to turn the asphalt into a hot sticky goo that trapped shoes and small animals.

The undoubted star attraction of the entire exhibition was Machinery Hall. Here could be found fourteen acres of new, shiny, and wondrous inventions.

What America had achieved in one hundred years was truly a marvel. Of course, to make such rapid progress they had had to clear the land of many obstacles. The largest and most obstinate was the Native Americans who had stood in their way. But the frontier had been conquered and the Indians had been subjugated.

Or so they thought.

The news began to filter through in whispered tones. In an instant, beaming faces were transformed into incredulous, openmouthed stares.

Surely not.

It couldn’t be true.

Men by the hundreds rushed from Machinery Hall, down the blistering asphalt highways and toward the newspaper vendor. When they grabbed hold of the paper and read the blaring headline, some of them cried. Others gasped in dread. How could this have happened?

Custer and 262 Men Slaughtered

All of a sudden, the machines didn’t seem so marvelous after all.

A GRIPPING, TRUE STORY TOLD FROM THE FRONT LINES AS THE WORLD FACED THE POSSIBILITY OF NUCLEAR WAR

This is a personal account of military service and the historical events that were happening during President Reagan's time in office as the world faced the possibility of nuclear war. The author was in the US Army from November 1980 until March 1988 which coincided with President Reagan's time in office. He quickly went from a naive seventeen year old boy to a dedicated die hard soldier ready to sacrifice his life for his country.

˃˃˃ An assignment that likely would have been at Ground Zero of a nuclear war.

On the verge of World War 3 and nuclear war, "We Were Soldiers Too" is about the difficult job of serving in the infantry during a very critical time of the Cold War.

Serving as the first line of defense for a Soviet invasion in Germany, he found himself assigned the responsibility of defending an area in the Fulda Gap with only one objective, to hold the advancing Soviets until reinforcements arrived.

The Invention of the White Race (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: When the first Africans arrived in Virginia in 1619, there were no “white” people there. Nor, according to colonial records, would there be for another sixty years. In this seminal two-volume work, The Invention of the White Race, Theodore W. Allen tells the story of how America’s ruling classes created the category of the “white race” as a means of social control. Since that early invention, white privileges have enforced the myth of racial superiority, and that fact has been central to maintaining ruling-class domination over ordinary working people of all colors throughout American history.

Volume I draws lessons from Irish history, comparing British rule in Ireland with the “white” oppression of Native Americans and African Americans. Allen details how Irish immigrants fleeing persecution learned to spread racial oppression in their adoptive country as part of white America.

Since publication in the mid-nineties, The Invention of the White Race has become indispensable in debates on the origins of racial oppression in America. In this updated edition, scholar Jeffrey B. Perry provides a new introduction, a short biography of the author and a study guide.

Civil War Combat Artists and the Pictures They Drew (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: What did the battle of Gettysburg look like?

Despite the vast number of photographs associated with the Civil War, we have no photos of the battles themselves. The state of photography at that time could not stop action as it does today.

But we DO have pictures.

They are the drawings of the battlefield artists -- the Specials, as they were called -- sent out by publications such as Harper's Weekly to make a visual record of the pivotal event in American history. The woodcuts that Harper's and other publications produced based on these drawings are famous and well-known.

But what of the drawings themselves -- those made during the battle or in the evening when the firing has ceased?

Unfortunately, while many of them still exist, relatively few have ever been published.

This series, Battlelines, seeks to correct that. We begin with a five-volume set of those drawings related to the battle of Gettysburg. This volume (number 2 in the set) presents the drawings of the first day of the battle, Wednesday, July 1, 1863. All of the drawings were executed by Alfred Waud, one of the most prolific of all of the war's combat artists. You will find out much more about Waud in this book.

Watch for other volumes in this set.
