Three Books from Stackpole (K)

On the Canal: The Marines of L-3-5 on Guadalcanal, 1942 (Stackpole Military History Series) by Ore J. Marion, Thomas Cuddihy and Edward Cuddihy

Quote:
A straightforward, gripping tale from the Marines that stormed ashore on Guadalcanal in World War II
Told with humor and honesty in a no-holds-barred approach that only a Marine who was there could tell

Excerpt on firing a rifle grenade: "I jammed the rifle stock tight against my shoulder, raised myself up off the ground to a kneeling position, and squeezed the trigger. The rifle went bang! and the recoil jarred it loose from my grip. The rifle smacked me hard in the jaw. With that, I went down on my face while the little bluebirds started going tweet, tweet, tweet around my head.--'Did I hit it?' I asked.--'Yeah, you hit it,' Flash said. 'The damn thing just didn't work.'--We finally ran into somebody from another unit, a guy who really understood how the new style grenade was supposed to work. We explained our misfortune to him, and he asked us did you pull the firing pin out . . . The god damn pin!"
Custom Knifemaking by Tim McCreight

Quote:
Ten projects that together constitute a survey of knifemaking skills. Learn how to cut, shape, heat, treat, and finish a knife.
The Smoked-Foods Cookbook: How to Flavor, Cure and Prepare Savory Meats, Game, Fish, Nuts, and Cheese by Lue and Ed Park

Quote:
Smoked turkey, pheasant, salmon, pâté: these expensive delicacies can be make at home for surprisingly low cost. Wild game and domestic meats are prepared in any of dozens of marinades and brines, then set in a smoke cooker to absorb the flavor of hickory, apple wood, mesquite, chestnut, or maple smoke. The smoke cookers - which cost no more then a quality barbecue grill - are readily available from a variety of sources, all listed in the book.

Included are recipes for beef, pork, lamb, venison, chicken, turkey, duck, fish, shellfish, jerky, sausage, nuts, cheese, and even pasta. Complete menus provide guidelines for satisfying meals featuring smoked foods.

Ouch.

Sounds like it needs to be reported to Amazon (they are the ones that scan Topaz, from what I can tell, so are the ones that should fix it).
