Thought I would start a generic thread for these instead of individual titles, since they seem to come along every month or so. Hope that's okay.

Black April: The Fall of South Vietnam, 1973-75 by George J Veith
Now $2.99, from $16.47

From Encounter Books/624 pp:
The defeat of South Vietnam was arguably America’s worst foreign policy disaster of the 20th Century. Yet a complete understanding of the endgame—from the 27 January 1973 signing of the Paris Peace Accords to South Vietnam’s surrender on 30 April 1975—has eluded us.

Black April addresses that deficit. A culmination of exhaustive research in three distinct areas: primary source documents from American archives, North Vietnamese publications containing primary and secondary source material, and dozens of articles and numerous interviews with key South Vietnamese participants, this book represents one of the largest Vietnamese translation projects ever accomplished, including almost one hundred rarely or never seen before North Vietnamese unit histories, battle studies, and memoirs. Most important, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of South Vietnam’s conquest, the leaders in Hanoi released several compendiums of formerly highly classified cables and memorandum between the Politburo and its military commanders in the south. This treasure trove of primary source materials provides the most complete insight into North Vietnamese decision-making ever complied. While South Vietnamese deliberations remain less clear, enough material exists to provide a decent overview.

Ultimately, whatever errors occurred on the American and South Vietnamese side, the simple fact remains that the country was conquered by a North Vietnamese military invasion despite written pledges by Hanoi’s leadership against such action. Hanoi’s momentous choice to destroy the Paris Peace Accords and militarily end the war sent a generation of South Vietnamese into exile, and exacerbated a societal trauma in America over our long Vietnam involvement that reverberates to this day. How that transpired deserves deeper scrutiny.

Lincoln at Peoria by Lewis E. Lehrman

Lincoln at Peoria explains how Lincoln's speech at Peoria on October 16, 1854, was the turning point in the development of his antislavery campaign and his political career and thought. Here, Lincoln detailed his opposition to slavery's extension and his determination to defend America's Founding document from those who denied that the Declaration of Independence applied to black Americans.

Operation Barbarossa 1941 (Stackpole Military Photo Series)
Quote:
Photo chronicle of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941
Hundreds of photos, many of them rare and never published before
Photos of men, tanks and other weapons, uniforms, villages, and much more
Excellent complement to the books in the Stackpole Military History Series
Ideal reference for World War II history fans, scholars, modelers, and reenactors
Eight-page color insert showcasing weapons, gear, and uniforms

Not military hx, but hopefully still of interest...
Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania: 2nd Edition
Quote:
Revised and expanded with recently uncovered information
Detailed maps of escape routes and networks
Eyewitness accounts of fugitives
Organized in antebellum America to help slaves escape to freedom, the Underground Railroad was cloaked in secrecy and operated at great peril to everyone involved. The system was extremely active in Pennsylvania, with routes running through cities and towns in all parts of the state.

This revised second edition retraces the routes with detailed maps, discusses the large city networks, identifies the houses and sites where escapees found refuge, and records the names of the people who risked their lives to support the operation.
