The Reich Intruders: RAF Light Bomber Raids in World War II

The Reich Intruders: RAF Light Bomber Raids in World War II by Martin BowmanThis is the story of 2 Group RAF during World War II. Much of it is told by the men who flew the Blenheim, Boston, Mitchell and Mosquito aircraft that carried out many daring daylight and night-time raids on vitally important targets in Nazi occupied Europe and Germany. These were not the famous thousand bomber raids that hit the wartime headlines, but low-level, fast-moving surprise raids flown by small formations of fleet-footed and skilfully piloted twin-engine light bombers. Their targets were usually difficult to locate and heavily defended because of their strategic importance to the Nazis....

Durham Mining Disasters: c1700-1950s

Durham Mining Disasters: c1700-1950s by Maureen Anderson & Kevin KeeganIt is now over half a century since the last coalmining disaster to affect the lives and families of people living and working on what became known as the Great Northern Coalfield. This was the first area of Britain where mining developed on a large scale but at tremendous human cost. Mining was always a dangerous occupation, especially during the nineteenth century and in the years before nationalization in 1947. Safety was often secondary to profit. It was the disasters emanating from explosions of gas that caused the greatest loss of life, decimating local communities. In tight-knit mining...

Dallas, November 22, 1963: From The Passage of Power

Here is that tragic day in Dallas alive with startling details reported for the first time by the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Just as scandals that might end his career are about to break over Lyndon Johnson's head, the motorcade containing the presidential party is making its slow and triumphant way along the streets of Dallas. In Caro's breathtakingly vivid narrative, we witness the shots, the...

Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege; the earlier events, such as the gathering of warriors for the siege, the cause of the war, and related concerns tend to appear near the beginning. Then the epic narrative takes up events prophesied for the future, such as Achilles' looming death and the sack of Troy, prefigured and alluded to more and more vividly, so that when it reaches an end, the poem...

The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ

The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ by Nicolas Notovitch...

One day, while visiting a Buddhist convent on my route, I learned from a chief lama, that there existed in the archives of Lhassa, very ancient memoirs relating to the life of Jesus Christ and the occidental nations, and that certain great monasteries possessed old copies and translations of those chronicles. As it was little probable that I should make another journey into this country, I resolved to put off my return to Europe until a later date, and, cost what it might, either find those copies in the great convents or go to Lhassa--a journey which is far from being so dangerous and difficult...

The American Mass Mind: Perceptions, Beliefs and Operations

The American Mass Mind: Perceptions, Beliefs and Operations by Tom CalderonPopular culture is a kind of unconscious religion and mass media is its electronic temple. The psychological forces engaged by today's entertainment, news, and advertising are the same as those manipulated by superstition and ritual in the past. Like any religion, pop culture has instilled a system of beliefs in its followers, a mass faith which serves the interests of economic and political elites. The American Mass Mind examines these beliefs, the psychological operations that cultivate them, and how they have led us through the decades into the present global crisis.

On War: With linked Table of Contents

On War: With linked Table of Contents by Carl Von Clausewitz'On War' is the West's premier work on the philosophy of war. Other soldiers before him had written treatises on various military subjects, but none undertook a great philosophical examination of war on the scale of Clausewitz's. 'On War' is considered to be the first modern book of military strategy. This is due mainly to Clausewitz's integration of political, social, and economic issues as some of the most important factors in deciding the outcomes of a war. It is one of the most important treatises on strategy ever written, and continues to be required reading at many military academies.

One of the bloodiest conflicts ever to take place on American soil, the Civil War pitted brother against brother as North and South fought to secure their futures. Confederate president Jefferson Davis's 1881 memoir, The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government is a history of the Confederate States of America and a vindication of the Southern cause.

The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman

The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman by William T. Sherman

First published in 1875, General William T. Sherman's memoir was one of the first from the Civil War, and was offered to the public because, as Sherman wrote in his dedication, "no satisfactory history" of the war was yet available.

Although the Memoirs have been revised and corrected many times over the years, Sherman, famously, never changed the original text of his recollections. He was not an historian, he said, and invited "any witness who may disagree with me should publish his own version of [the] facts..."
