Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita, and the Battle of Manila by James Scott

In early 1945, General Douglas MacArthur prepared to reclaim Manila, America’s Pearl of the Orient, which had been seized by the Japanese in 1942. Convinced the Japanese would abandon the city, he planned a victory parade down Dewey Boulevard―but the enemy had other plans. The Japanese were determined to fight to the death.

This book focuses on the battle to liberate Manila, its catastrophic destruction of the city, and the rampage by Japanese forces that brutalized the civilian population, resulting in a massacre as horrific as the Rape of Nanking.



Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama
In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident.

This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
