Tweedale's War: Aircraftman Harry Tweedale relates his experiences in the South-East Asian Theatre of World War II

by Harry Tweedale and Jane Marshall

Harry Tweedale's war years would see their share of drama, excitement, horror and loss. He would witness the withdrawal from Malaya, the loss of Singapore and the ensuing chaos. Chaos that he would witness from his position amongst the lowest ranks. Harry had attended a prestigious grammar school but the Depression years had meant leaving early, without final academic qualifications, in order to take up the offer of paid employment.

Corporal Johnnie

by John Butterworth and Jane Marshall

Sometime in the early 1890s Johnnie Butterworth disappeared from his Rochdale home after a family quarrel. He was not heard of again for months, probably several years. Then, in 1896, a letter arrived at 32 Yorkshire Street from ‘Corporal John Butterworth, Kings Royal Rifles, Jullundur, NW India’. For the next four years regular correspondence between Johnnie and his family would reunite the family.
By 1896 Johnnie had become Corporal John Butterworth, an ‘Uncommission Officer’ in Queen Victoria’s army, serving with the King’s Royal Rifles in post-Mutiny Imperial India. At first Johnnie would describe the excitement and the stimulation of the new experiences which life beyond Rochdale offered. But he would also explain, often in careful detail, routine army life,...

Private Dreams: A True Account of My Time With the 82nd Airborne in Dominican Republic

by Ronald Mayle S.R.

Private Dreams is a true story of my journey through the U.S. Army from 1965 to 1967. It's how I went from failing the Navy entrance exam to finding myself in the middle of a crisis in the Dominican Republic with the 82nd Airborne Division. A crisis that hardly anybody has heard of. It's also about finding love in a foreign land and being forced to decide between leaving her there or bringing her home. It's more than just a military story. It's also a story that affects every family, and that is cancer. It can bring families together or it can tear them apart. It's a story about the turbulent '60's and the racism that spilled over into the military. In "Private Dreams", I myself had dreams that were private only to me.

Due to the graphic nature of this book, the recommended ag...

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...

From Cleopatra to Hugo: History's Most Legendary Love Affairs (Book 1)

by A. G. Mogan

History has many romantic stories to tell of the part which women have played in determining the destinies of nations. Sometimes it is a woman's beauty that causes the shifting of a province. Again it is another woman's rich possessions that incite invasion and lead to bloody wars. Many men in private life have lost fortune and fame for the love of woman. Kings have incurred the odium of their people, and have cared nothing for it in comparison with the joys of sense that come from the lingering caresses and clinging kisses. Cold-blooded statesmen have lost the leadership of their party and have gone down in history with a clouded name because of the fascination exercised upon them by some woman, often far from beautiful, and yet possessing the mysterious power which makes the triumphs of ...

Napper Tandy, A real Irish Patriot

by Brian Igoe

It was the 10th September, 1798. Napper Tandy was afloat, which he hated. She was a corvette. Her name was the Anacréon. What a name for a bloody ship-of-war, he thought. Whether she was named after a Greek composer of drinking and love songs or a French composer of operas, it was not a name for a war-ship.
She was fast, though, that he admitted. And well armed, this 100 ton corvette, with her fourteen four pounders and a pair of swivels, but her main protection was her speed. The fastest vessel in the Navy of France, they said, and with her yellow hull and new top masts she was any young officer’s dream command. But God, how she pitched. He clutched his hand to his mouth and made once more for the scuppers. What it was to be so old. He felt all of his 61 years today. After a w...

Behind the Scenes : Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House

by Elizabeth Keckley

Elizabeth Keckley’s Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House is both a riveting slave narrative and a fascinating insider’s look at the First Family during the Lincoln administration. Keckley was the First Lady’s seamstress and confidante and the publication of her memoirs in 1868 caused a storm of controversy. The press excoriated Keckley for revealing the intimate secrets of her employers and Mary Todd Lincoln cut off her friendship with Keckley. Lincoln’s eldest son had the book suppressed. After the White House, Keckley went on to become one of the first successful independent black business owners in America, forming a profitable line in dress-making for the wives of prominent politicians, including the spouses of Robert E. Lee and Jefferso...

Abraham Lincoln
As president, Abraham Lincoln had one goal and that was to preserve the Union at all costs. His determination to hold the North and South together would ultimately lead to the bloodiest war in American history, the abolition of slavery, and his own untimely death from an assassin’s bullet. But to see Lincoln solely as a tragic figure consumed with the strife of mid-nineteenth century America is to miss meeting him as a man who never allowed himself to be defeated by adversity or grief or turmoil. From his earliest days on the frontier, he endured the loss of his beloved mother and the demanding physical challenges of a rough-and-ready land where death came easily and education was rare; where ambition was rewarded if a man proved himself willing to work hard; where ...
