Deception and Reality: Living Through the Missing Pages of History

by Kele Gabor

What Readers Are Saying"Deception and reality by Mr. Gabor is written for all people; young, old, and in between. Especially for those who seek the truth for those who can gain deeper appreciation of the freedom they enjoy, and for those who still suffer but will find solace in knowing they're not alone and not forgotten. The readers should find these original stories unique, enlightening, and an entertaining learning experience.""Deception & Reality is one of the most exciting stories I have ever had the opportunity to read. Strictly speaking it would be called an autobiography but that is an inadequate description of these thrilling episodes of living under difficult circumstances. The stories unfold from a storyteller from the first chapter to the last. These are stories within stories....

by Peter Russo

Available at Discounted Price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! Since their formation in 1949, the Mossad has continually lived up to the name given to them, the godfather of all spy agencies.

It is because of these methods that the nation of Israel has been able to hold its ground in such an unstable area of the world. Israel, since its formation as a country, has been seen as a usurper of the land formerly owned by its neighbor, Palestine. An argument that will continue until one of the countries is either destroyed or disarmed. Palestine, being an ...

Goughie

by Anthony Farrar-Hockley

The Generals of the First World War have generated much debate and controversy.General Sir Hubert Gough is no exception.Some thought him callous, a butcher among generals, while many believed him unusually considerate, thoughtful of his soldiers within the demands of war.First gazetted in 1889, Gough’s military career spans the bridge between the Imperial conflicts of late-Victorian rule and the modern warfare ushered in by the twentieth century.From India to South Africa his early career marked him for greatness, yet in Ireland the so-called “officers’ mutiny” of March 1914 almost brought it to an end.Within months of the incident war was declared, and on the Western Front Gough’s talents saw his rapid rise to the head of Fifth Army, the youngest general in the British Army.Howe...

No Diplomacy

by Andrew Lafleche

Everybody writes a hero story. Publicists describe them as gritty. Their authors undoubtedly write in standard form and recycled words: “Nothing could have prepared me for what happened next…”No Diplomacy bucks this trend.Unlike anything previously published, No Diplomacy is the antithesis to a superhero story. It’s one you can’t unread.Narrated with the cynicism of an infantry soldier and provoked by the ubiquitous question, “Have you ever killed someone?” No Diplomacy delivers an explicit documentation of a soldier’s experience in combat, that once you start, you will not put it down until it’s finished.Written by a former Canadian infantry soldier, the direct language used in this first person narrative subjects the reader to an uncomfortably vulnerable account of ev...

This simply isn't true. Greatness does not come lightly. It requires that you make sacrifices of time, interests, and--sometimes--possessions. The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat. Few stories better illustrate this better than th...

Coral and Brass

The aim of this book is twofold: first, that due credit be given to a gallant body of men, the United States Marine Corps, who in their path across the Pacific were faithful to their traditions and to their country; second, to point out the errors that were committed in World War II in such a manner that they will not be repeated in World War III — God forbid.This is a personalized account of over forty years in the service of my country, culminating in the greatest war in our history. I never kept a diary. I had no official historian at my elbow recording in detail the battles I fought. I was too busy fighting those battles to set down anything in chronological form. Therefore, I find myself largely relying on my memory to compile the story of those forty years. If I have erred in facts...
