Technical Rescue Operations, Volume II
Technical Rescue Operations, Volume II: Common Emergencies is the second in a three-volume series by Larry Collins. Volume II covers responding to, managing, and conducting rescues in the “daily” setting of fire/rescue agencies. This includes the kind of technical rescues that confront firefighters and rescuers on practically a daily basis. This volume also explains how to handle more complex and large-scale rescue operations that challenge responders to apply solid rescue principals for longer periods of time, with the assistance required of additional resources and under more strict command and control because of the scope of the incident, its newsworthiness, crowds of people arriving on the scene, and getting the immediate attention of local or regional elected officials. Features & Benefits: Learn from the author's repeated “once in a career” incidents that are commonplace for busy fire/rescue units such as the L.A. County Fire Department's USAR task force/USAR Company Maximize the base of knowledge developed by leading international rescuers and fire/rescue agencies, taught by a current practitioner assigned as an officer of one of the most experienced and battle-hardened fire department rescue units in the nation Contains “best practices” from fire/rescue agencies from around the world, showing how technical rescues and disasters can be managed better, faster, and safer Technical Rescue Operations, Volume II: Common Emergencies is the second in a three-volume series by Larry Collins.

The Secrets of D-Day

release date: May 01, 2006
The Secrets of D-Day
Secrets and spies... Years of preparation led to the Allied Invasion of French soil on June 6, 1944. In the greatest amphibious assault ever launched, more than 150,000 American, Canadian, and British troops penetrated German defenses by air and by sea in an ingenious surprise attack that marked a critical turning point in World War II. The complex logistics of D-Day — landing troops and tanks on the beaches of Normandy while German leaders expected an attack further up the coast — were made possible by a brilliant campaign of disinformation and misdirection. Without this counter-intelligence the Allies most likely would have crossed the Channel to meet the German Wehrmacht in all its might. That the Germans never knew what hit them says much for the spider’s web of deceit carefully planted by the English. In his final work, bestselling author Larry Collins reveals the secrets of D-Day in a step-by-step unraveling of code names, unlikely connections, serendipitous discoveries, and cold-blooded calculations. Though it reads like a thriller, this fascinating tale of unflinching bravery and outright chutzpah is all true.
