by R. Stephen Smith

The latest in this series of family history mysteries (the eighth such volume) includes some of the most interesting reader-submitted queries as they appeared originally in a genealogy magazine published several years ago, and now out of print.

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.

Based on the true story of these two brothers and their contrasting experiences during the Second World War, Billy, Eric & Adolf is a tale of courage, innocence and love, a poignant, funny and moving account of ordinary lives impacted by extraordinary times.

"The newspaper headline read more like a plot line from an episode of Dad’s Army...

Swarm Troopers: How small drones will conquer the world

by David Hambling

Small unmanned aircraft are already transforming warfare, with hand-launched scouts like the Raven and lethal tactical drones like Switchblade already in use by US forces.

A bigger revolution is on the way, as swarming software allows a single operator to control large numbers of drones, and smartphone technology means they can be built for $1,000 each -- by anybody, not just governments.

This book looks at the history of drone warfare, the rise of big drones like the Predator and how they are being eclipsed by smaller unmanned aircraft. And how the future is being shaped by smartphone technology, swarm software, miniaturised munitions and energy-harvesting that allows small drones to fly forever.

It also looks at why current air defence cannot stop...

New World Order? No Way Out?: How the One-Percenters did it!

by Paul Casselle

What the heck is going on in the world?

The 9/11 attack, continuous wars in the Middle-East & major terrorist incidents every few weeks.

What the heck is going on! - Are you looking for an answer?

Many of us are becoming aware of a growing global problem with national economies and terrorism, but some believe we are being led down this path by powerful people determined to destroy our free society in favour of their own greed. So, is this conspiracy nonsense?

I became so confused and worried about the global decline I saw around me that I decided to start researching for myself. Over the last four years I have discovered many things that left me speechless. I want everyone to explore the facts and make their own informed choices. Therefo...

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and...

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

by Keith R. Baker

Set in the Western theatre of the US Civil War during the crucial first 18 months, this first novel in the Longshot series introduces Rob Finn to Allan Pinkerton and others who will travel his journey.

Timeline of Ancient History

by Susan Whitemore

Ancient History is the period bridging Pre-History and Antiquity. The Timeline begins with the advent of writing and the invention of the wheel, two technological innovations that will allow for increases in communication, construction, and warfare. The Pre-History age of hunting/gathering ends as settled villages form into city-states that form into great empires, and intellectual/technological/political progress gains a momentum that will propel the peoples of the world into the cultural flowering of Antiquity.

“If you are to prosper in this world of secrets and powers, you must understand many things that happened before your time. How else can we understand our own time, or predict what may come?”

Clear and concise, the Timeline of Ancient History provide...

Man is Like a Vacuum: He Sucks (Homeworker Helper Book 26)

by M.D. Jones

Mosiah 3:19 states, “For the natural man is an enemy to God.” Human nature is carnal, devilish, and at its core, self-interested. Nazi Germany slaughtered more than six million Jews because one man sought power, and abused his control thereof. While crowds of men, women, and children were being gassed and mutilated, the world watched silently in the distance. The pleas of nursing mothers and starving children fell on deaf ears because humans are self-interested. No one had the courage to fight against such tyranny because they were too fearful of what might happen to them if they intervened. In drafting a design for government or public policy it is imperative to assume that people are self-interested because it will promote laws that will protect the people, limit the power of corr...

THE JESUS OF THE JEWS: The Most Amazing Discovery of the Name of Jesus as the Nazarene Messiah in the Old Testament...

by Nivaldo Marcolino

It is likely that we can find here one of the most compelling and undeniable evidence that Jesus had the name of the Messiah that the Jews expected, registered masterfully in the Hebrew Scriptures.
The way like the name of Jesus can be found in the Old Testament (OT), (TANAKH in Hebrew), linked to the Messiah of Israel, and even with His nickname, the Nazarene, is unprecedented and hitherto, apparently unknown within of the Christian and Jewish communities, even in the scientific, theological, academic or secular areas.
This is a reflection that will show us one more facet of the man who influenced, more than any other man on this planet, the course of the entire history of the human race....

Everything was so blank… The buildings, the people, it's all so plain and grey.So, no matter what my Mother may tell our relatives and everybody else she encounters, moving from sunny Los Angels to the heart of dreary old England was anything but a 'mutual family decision.' If anything in this situation were left to me, I'd be sitting on my ass in the lovely sun tanning up outside of my house back in America. In fact, it would be that way if it were left to anybody else in my family except for my Mother.As it is, this dream is crushed as I make my way through Kings Cross Station in Britain with my little brother, Sam, trying to find Platform 9¾.

Marc Walters jumped from the last set of stairs and hit the ground running. He pushed forward with his legs, taking rapid strides as he ran down the tunnel. His shoes smacking hard into the concert floor as he moved. All his strength poured into moving his feet. The urgency of his mission driving him forward as fast as he could go.From behind him he heard the hurried footsteps of Seeker Bright Moon on Fallen Snow. She had not leapt from the stairs to the ground like Marc. With her strides shorter than his, she had a greater distance to catch up. But the Seeker was pushing herself hard to reach Marc. Her breath came out in tight gasps, echoing off the bare gray cement walls as she ran.Coming to a bend in the corridor, Marc barely slowed down as he shifted his weight seamlessly and changed h...
