Wine In The Sand: My Adventures through Desert STORM

by Jim White

I was starting the paperwork to leave the Air Force while coming to the end of my 4 year hitch. Next I was sitting in the middle of a war zone with no end to my military stint in sight. This is how I found myself in Desert Shield/Storm, and how my friends and I did everything possible to break every rule we were given. We didn't just make lemonade, we juiced it up with high octane, then lit the box it came in on fire! M-16s, condoms, alcohol, and women. We might die, but we were going to laugh our way there! I'm sure everyone who went to Desert Storm has a story. This one is mine....

A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling

by Marc Garrett

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn't leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund....

by History-Episode

A Complete Biography of Queen Elizabeth I – A Very Important Queen in World HistoryFrom the moment she was conceived, Queen Elizabeth I of England was the subject of controversy. The daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth was accused of being illegitimate by English Catholics before she was even born, as they refused to acknowledge the annulment of Henry's first marriage.

Elizabeth refused to marry immediately and rule as co-regent with her husband, as Mary had done, and her decision to remain single and rule al...

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974

by Ian Miller

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times...

Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters: Discover the Extraordinary Legends, Folklore & Myths of Ancient Greece (Greek Mythology, Greek Gods, Ancient Greece, Mythology)

by Franklin Pascal

Discover the Extraordinary Legends & Myths of Ancient Greece
The Greeåks were one of the first civilizations to conceive gods and goddesses that were similar to human beings: attractive men and women, old folks with dignity and humor, and young innocent children. Naturally, the gods interacted and communicated with humans on a regular basis. The gods were not typically withdrawn and reserved figures; they actively participated in the affairs of mortals and exercised their greater power to those they favored. In addition, they were neither omnipotent nor omniscient; they possessed individual and humanlike qualities that portrayed them as fallible, imperfect deities rather than absolute and supreme beings.
