The result of five years of research, First Heroes untangles an intricate web of information and ultimately concludes that the prisoners of war that were held captive in Southeast Asia were forgotten or ignored by their own country. Author Rod Colvin crisscrossed the country interviewing military and government officials, veterans, returned POWs, political figures, journalists, and members of the National League of Families and the National Forget-Me-Not Association and balances hard facts with the dramatic personal accounts of parents, wives, brothers, sisters, and children who have waged a difficult battle for the truth about their loved ones. This chronicle is as much a testament to the faith and unending hope of the family members as it is the story of the men themselves. First Heroes is destined to change the way readers think about war, freedom, and their country.

Unsure whether they would be greeted as traitors or heroes, POWs returning from Vietnam responded by holding tight to their chosen motto, "Return with Honor." "We're giving the American people what they want and badly need--heroes," said a Vietnam jungle POW. "I feel it's our responsibility, our duty to help them where possible shed the idea this war was a waste, useless, as unpopular as it may have been." In the first book to explore the entire range of memoirs, biographies, and group histories published since America's Vietnam POWs returned home, Craig Howes explores the development of a collective history. He describes how these captives drew upon their national heritage to compose a unified, common story while still in prison, and how individual POWs have responded to this Official Story. Examining what racial, cultural, and political assumptions support this shared Official Story, Howes places the POWs' experiences squarely in the center of American history, and within those larger clashes of opinion and belief which characterized the nation's response to the Vietnam War. The result is an engrossing study of what these captivity narratives can tell us about the POWs, their captors, and America's Vietnam legacy.

Alexander Litvinenko A Russian living in London, Litvinenko was poisoned by Polonium-210, traced by alpha detectors to a British Airways flight from Moscow to Heathrow. A Champions League match between Arsenal and CKSA Moscow had brought thousands of Russian fans to London. Was one of them responsible for Litvinenko's death? American MIA in Vietnam Is it possible that prisoners of war still remain left behind in Vietnam? Diana, Princess of Wales Mohamed Al-Fayed, Harrod's owner and the man who might have become Diana's father-in-law, points the finger at Prince Phillip, the Queen's husband, an accusation which sparked a multi-million pound investigation. Dr David Kelly The UK scientist and weapons expert found dead just days after being identified as the source who cast doubt on the claim that Saddam Hussein could have fired a weapon of mass destruction at 45 minutes notice. Was it suicide, or murder? Elvis Presley Elvis is supposedly alive and well, and has been spotted countless times since his death in 1977. But Elvis fans inadvertently add to the hysteria by dressing like him - has anyone actually seen the real Elvis Presley? Gemstone File This 1,000 page document claims that a great deal of suppressed information has played a role in shaping world events since the 1950's. Do the mafia and other corrupt politicians have anything to do with the Kennedy assassinations and other major historical events? HIV and Aids Was Human Immunodeficiency Virus deliberately engineered as part of a racist plot to reduce the world's population? John F. Kennedy Who was with Lee Harvey Oswald when he supposedly killed the US President? Jimmy Hoffa The ex-president of the US Teamsters Union ate a meal at Machus Red Fox restaurant in Detroit, paid for his meal and walked straight out straight into an American mythology. What happened to Jimmy Hoffa? John Lennon It seems clear that John Lennon's assassinator, Mark David Chapman, was simply a deranged fan, or is there some truth to the theory that he was actually a Manchurian Candidate, brainwashed and pre-programmed to kill on command? Malcolm X Hayer, Butler and Johnson were convicted of first-degree murder, but with all the evidence gathered, is it possible that the FBI set up Malcolm X for assassination by black radicals? Marilyn Monroe Her death may well have been assumed to have been a suicide if not for her long string of high-profile boyfriends. But if one of them killed her, which one was it? Martin Luther King To this day millions believe James Earl Ray did not have the capability to execute King alone, but is it true that Ray was merely a patsy? Robert F Kennedy Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan, the man arrested for the assassination of Robert Kennedy, cannot have committed the crime alone. His gun held a mere eight bullets, yet Kennedy was shot eleven times. Robert Maxwell The corpse of British publishing tycoon was found floating close to his yacht off the Canary Islands on 5 November 1991. Many people believe Maxwell's death is dubious, why then, was his family so happy to accept his accidental death? Rudolf Hess In 1941 Hitler's Deputy Fuhrer flew a stolen Me110 German fighter plane to Britain on what Hitler affirmed was a mad private 'peace mission', did Hitler approve of Hess's star-crossed plan? Or perhaps he was lured to Britain? Tupac Shakur Did fellow rap superstar Notorious BIG contract the hit on rival Tupac Shakur, or is he alive and well living in Witness Protection? Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Mozart was supposedly killed by his rival composer Antonio Salieri, but not necessarily by cold-blooded physical murder. Some believed Salieri ordered Mozart to work himself to death by anonymously commissioning a requiem mass against an impossible deadline.

On a peaceful August morning in 1985, grim-face FBI agents led a dawn raid on an eighty-acre farm outside Rulo, Nebraska, said to be occupied by a gorup of religious survivalists led by the charismatic Mike Ryan. What they found on the farm shocked even experience investigators. For months Ryan's Nebraska neighbors spoke in whispers of gunfire in the night, the disappearance of women and children, neo-Nazis and white supremacists. But little did the locals know what was happening to those Mike Ryan decided to punish for their “sins.” In Evil Harvest, Rod Colvin re-creates a chilling story of torture, hate, and perversion, and how good, ordinary people could be pulled into a destructive, religious cult—a cult that committed unthinkable acts in the name of God.
