Summer of '69 by Todd Strasser Summary

Drawing from his teenage years, Todd Strasser’s novel revisits a tumultuous era and takes readers on a psychedelically tinged trip of a lifetime. With his girlfriend, Robin, away in Canada, eighteen-year-old Lucas Baker’s only plans for the summer are to mellow out with his friends, smoke weed, drop a tab or two, and head out in his microbus for a three-day happening called the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. But life veers dramatically off track when he suddenly finds himself in danger of being drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam. If that isn’t heavy enough, there’s also the free-loving (and undeniably alluring) Tinsley, who seems determined to test Lucas’s resolve to stay faithful to Robin; a frighteningly bad trip at a Led Zeppelin concert; a run-in with an angry motorcycle gang; parents who appear headed for a divorce; and a friend on the front lines in ’Nam who’s in mortal danger of not making it back. As the pressures grow, it’s not long before Lucas finds himself knocked so far down, it’s starting to look like up to him. When tuning in, turning on, and dropping out is no longer enough, what else is there?

A Summer in '69 by Dee Davidson Dosch Summary

A Summer in '69 is the true story of three college coeds who took a summer vacation in Europe and discovered more than just a travelogue. --- Dee Davidson and two of her girlfriends worked and hitchhiked their way through Western Europe in 1969. She kept a diary of their adventures and wrote about how three naive young women from the Midwest tried to take the world by storm. Their inauspicious start as maids in West Germany and waitresses in Switzerland, led them to travels in a dozen countries that were often fun, educational, exciting and sometimes "unfortunate." --- Ultimately, this coming-of-age memoir is also a wonderful journey for three young women that is as unforgettable for them as it will be for readers. "Our limited budgets never got in the way of our extravagant appetites for seeing and doing as much as we could possibly do in the short amount of time we had."

Summer of '69 by Kathy Clark Summary

SUMMER OF '69 Three complete, unabridged novels set twenty years after the Vietnam War about three very different experiences and the adjustments required to survive life after Vietnam. These are stories of love, hope, and recovery by courageous men and women whose paths are destined to cross.KISSED BY AN ANGEL - A plane crash brought them together. Will their memories and fears tear them apart? A pilot who had been shot down in the jungle makes it home and finds a new career as a Blue Angel. His best friend was not so lucky. Did the pilot's brush with death make him feel invincible...or crush him with survivor's guilt?PHANTOM ANGEL - Amnesia took away his past. Can she help him find a future? A man is discovered living as a prisoner of a Vietnam family, deep in the jungle. Amnesia had taken away his memories and had kept him from trying to escape. Can he adapt to life back in the U.S. after losing not just the last 20 years, but also his very identity?ANGEL OF MERCY - She nursed him back to health and they fell in love. But she choose another man to marry. Twenty years ago, an Army nurse made a difficult choice between the man she truly loved and the man who needed her to survive. Now that she is reunited with her past, can she fix a broken heart and heal wounds that are too deep to be seen?Each of the 2,700,000 Americans who fought in the Vietnam War had their own unique experiences and each one's story is different. 10% of that generation went to Vietnam, but 100% were affected. Over 58,000 Americans died or went missing during the Vietnam War. The rest came home to an ungrateful nation. Some had visible injuries, but almost all suffered deep emotional wounds. The lucky ones had friends and families that helped get them through. It took love and patience and the ability to move forward, one step at a time. Regardless of whether or not, Vietnam was a justifiable cause, these warriors deserve our respect and gratitude. Their stories need to be told...and we need to listen, then give them a big hug.

The Phantom Vietnam War by David R. Honodel Summary

David R. “Buff” Honodel was a cocky young man with an inflated self-image when he arrived in 1969 at his base in Udorn, Thailand. His war was not in Vietnam; it was a secret one in the skies of a neighboring country almost unknown in America, attacking the Ho Chi Minh Trail that fed soldiers and supplies from North Vietnam into the South. Stateside he learned the art of flying the F-4, but in combat, the bomb-loaded fighter handled differently, targets shot back, and people suffered. Inert training ordnance was replaced by lethal weapons. In the air, a routine day mission turned into an unexpected duel with a deadly adversary. Complacency during a long night mission escorting a gunship almost led to death. A best friend died just before New Year’s. A RF-4 crashed into the base late in Buff’s tour of duty. The reader will experience Buff’s war from the cockpit of a supersonic F-4D Phantom II, doing 5-G pullouts after dropping six 500-pound bombs on trucks hidden beneath triple jungle canopy. These were well defended by a skillful, elusive, determined enemy firing back with 37mm anti-aircraft fire and tracers in the sky. The man who left the States was a naïve, self-centered young pilot. The man who came back 137 missions later was much different.

Ernie Banks by Phil Rogers Summary

Respected by his baseball peers, beloved by Chicago fans and teammates, Ernie Banks did everything there was to do in the game he loved. Everything, that is, except play in a World Series. How and why that experience eluded him during one season of particular promise—1969—is a key storyline of this fresh look at one of baseball's legendary players. Banks, who had picked cotton outside Dallas as a youth, ascended from a barnstorming semipro team to the major leagues after Kansas City Monarchs manager Buck O'Neil placed him with the Cubs. During his time in Chicago, Banks won two MVPs and received an education far better than the one he received in the segregated schools he'd attended, gaining important life skills while playing the game he was born to play.

Punk Rock Blitzkrieg by Marky Ramone,Richard Herschlag Summary

The “entertaining and enlightening” (Stephen King) final word on the genius and mischief of the Ramones, told by the man who created the beat behind their iconic music and lived to tell about it. When punk rock reared its spiky head in the early seventies, Marc Bell had the best seat in the house. Already a young veteran of the prototype American metal band Dust, Bell took residence in artistic, seedy Lower Manhattan, where he played drums in bands that would shape rock music for decades to come, including Wayne County, who pioneered transsexual rock, and Richard Hell and the Voidoids, who directly inspired the entire early British punk scene. If punk had royalty, in 1978 Marc became part of it when he was knighted “Marky Ramone” by Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee of the iconoclastic Ramones. The band of tough misfits were a natural fit for Marky, who dressed punk before there was punk, and who brought his “blitzkrieg” style of drumming as well as the studio and stage experience the band needed to solidify its lineup. Together, they changed the world. But Marky Ramone changed, too. The epic wear and tear of a dysfunctional group (and the Ramones were a step beyond dysfunction) endlessly crisscrossing the country and the world in an Econoline—practically a psychiatric ward on wheels—drove Marky from partying to alcoholism. When his life started to look more out of control then Dee Dee’s, he knew he had a problem. Marky left music in the mid-eighties to enter recovery and eventually returned to help the Ramones finally receive their due as one of the greatest and most influential bands of all time. Covering in unflinching detail the cult film Rock ’N’ Roll High School to “I Wanna Be Sedated” to Marky’s own struggles, Punk Rock Blitzkrieg is an authentic and always honest look at the people who reinvented rock music, and not a moment too soon.

Year of the Four Emperors by Kenneth Wellesley Summary

After Nero's notorious reign, the Romans surely deserved a period of peace and tranquility. Instead, during AD69, three emperors were murdered: Galba, just days into the post, Otho and Vitellius. The same year also saw civil war in Italy, two desperate battles at Cremona and the capture of Rome for Vespasian, which action saw the fourth emperor of the year, but also brought peace. This classic work, now updated and reissued under a new title, is a gripping account of this tumultuous year. Wellesley also focuses on the year's historical importance, which also marked the watershed between the first and second imperial dynasties.
