Billy, Eric & Adolf: One War, Two Brothers

by Chris Whitfield

In January 1941 with the Liverpool Blitz at its height, twelve-year-old Billy Whitfield was evacuated to live on a farm without running water or electricity in the rural town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, an event that was to shape him for the rest of his life. In the same year, his elder brother Eric volunteered to join the RAF, subsequently serving as a flight engineer in Bomber Command, the most dangerous of the Allied Services.

Script - Tippy: Tales of Flying Sergeants: Enlisted Fighter Pilots in WWII

by Michael Uva

Based on the story of an enlisted marine who flew a P-51 aircraft during WWII. (Normally, only Commissioned Officers were pilots.) These "enlisted" pilots fought like hellions in air battles in the European and South Pacific theaters against greater trained enemy pilots and superior aircraft. They showed tenacity, guts, and heart in a belief they could stem the tide of tyranny. They crammed their bodies into tiny aircraft, and then hurled themselves across the skies, to protect America!

I wrote Tippy (in a fictional form) as a tribute to the real Master Gunnery Sergeant Tippy that I had the pleasure and honor to have served with while I was enlisted in the Marines. I flew a few times as his crew chief.

Only Officers were supposed to be pilots. But despite discrimi...

Elizabeth I: Legendary Queen Of England

by Michael W. Simmons

When Elizabeth I took the throne of England in 1559, hardly anyone knew what to make of her. Born the heir to the throne, she was declared a bastard when she was three years old, after her mother was executed for treason, witchcraft, and incest. During the reign of her sister, Mary I, she was a prisoner in the Tower of London, where she was expected to die. But when she became Queen, at the age of 25, she swiftly stunned the royal court by stepping into the seat of power with grace, intelligence, and an air of majesty that maddened and enchanted the men around her.

For 44 years, Elizabeth I guided England through religious upheavals and plots to overthrow the government. Courted by all the most powerful princes in Europe, she baffled her advisors by refusing to marry any of th...

Fitting is important when you are a kid. But when you are a geeky kid, teased and bullied for being different, fitting in is nearly impossible. I grew up nerdy in the 1980s, obsessing over video games, toys, movies, and comic books. Wearing glasses, reading science fiction, and being hopeless at sports were just a few of the things that marked me as a weirdo. This book details some of the struggles I went through as I grew up, before I figured out that fitting in with the crowd wasn't nearly as important as being true to myself....

Killing Buddha - An Account of Surviving Abuse and Therapy

by Dagmar M.

Mother was a paranoid schizophrenic and an abusive parent who told me she wished I’d never been born. She killed herself when I was 15, leaving a message that she still rejected me. My father sent me to several psychiatrists after that but I could trust nobody -- except Dr. Ian Kent. He wasn’t smooth like the others. He didn’t try to finesse me. For years I trusted his guidance but I went to the brink of despair while in his care. Finally I left. Doctors, lawyers, professors and business executives followed him like a guru; I believed the failure was mine. Not until I read his book did I realize that maybe I wasn’t the crazy one. Killing Buddha is about therapy bleeding into cultism, crossing the line unnoticed. It’s about devastation and survival....
