Red Zone: Five Bloody Years in Baghdad (Blood and Treasure Book 2)

by Oliver Poole

This eyewitness account reveals the truth about Baghdad's Red Zone during the American occupation, and describes the reality of daily life as the city descended into bloody civil war. How do you cheer on your national football team when you're terrified to step outside your front door? What's it like to go to the shops when your biggest fear is being blown up by a suicide bomber? Or risk being shot at a roadblock when you drive your pregnant wife to hospital?

As the Daily Telegraph's Baghdad bureau chief, Oliver Poole first arrived in Iraq in 2003, crossing the Kuwait border in the bank of a US armoured vehicle. Once in Baghdad his home would become a hotel room in the middle of the city's Red Zone, one of the most dangerous places on earth. He tells how the war changed this young Englishman’s life - and also the life of his interpreter Ahmed, whose relations were among those slaughtered and who ultimately had to flee Iraq – with Oliver’s help – in a vehicle filled with his possessions and family.

Oliver travelled with British and US troops, witnessed first-hand the bloody impact of car bombs and had his own offices destroyed by a suicide bomber. Finally in November 2006, with his newspaper closing down his office, he joined the masses escaping Iraq through Baghdad airport.

This is the story of that war, and that city, during that time.

On War

by Carl von Clausewitz

On War is the most significant attempt in Western history to understand war, both in its internal dynamics and as an instrument of policy. Since the work's first appearance in 1832, it has been read throughout the world, and has stimulated generations of soldiers, statesmen, and intellectuals. Two centuries later, On War remains both controversial and an influence on strategic thinking.*The work remained unfinished at the time of Clausewitz's death and was later completed by his wife. This is Volume 1.

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.

Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters is a synopsis of the major tenets of Greek mythology, including the profiles of particular gods, goddesses, heroes, and monsters. Though Greek mythology is vast and complicated in scope, these main points will serve to familiarize the reader and inspire him or her to further study. It is important to understand how the depiction of mythology can reveal certain ideas about the ancient Greeks.

Discover the Fascinating World of Ancient Greece, Including:
ZeusAchillesPoseidonHadesThe God of DarknessHeraMinotaurOdysseusAphrodite
Trojan WarHeraclesTitansand more!

Greek mythology has influenced culture, language, the arts, and literature. It is not something that has been reduced to the past; it is a regular part of the curriculum at schools and offered in classical studies at various universities.

The Ghosts We Leave Behind

Some call them killers--hard men from the other side of the planet sent to collect the heads of their enemies and make peace with a gun.Freedom follows, along with all of its problems. Choice, and a lack of it. A world without the easy answers that come from being in a uniform.And the space where the two worlds collide. Where a man tries to reconcile the person he’s become with the one he was. A new kind of battlefield, where the ghosts of his past change everything he’s ever known.

Pirates: Blackbeard - The Pirate Terror of the Sea

by Patrick Auerbach

The pirate Blackbeard is perhaps the most notorious of sea robbers.

Blackbeard was British, probably born before 1690. His real name was thought to be Edward Teach. As a young seaman, he had served on a British privateer that was based in Jamaica, an island in the Caribbean. Privateers were privately owned, armed ships hired by governments during time of war. The privateers' mission was to attack the ships of the enemy. Queen Anne of Britain allowed Teach's privateer to plunder French and Spanish ships during the War of the Spanish Succession and to keep stolen goods. By war's end, Teach had become an experienced sea robber. He then joined a group of fierce Caribbean pirates.

Soon the cunning, fearless Teach became captain of his own ship. A ship he had stolen! He added cannons and reinforced the ship's sides. His ship was swift, easy to handle, and able to carry a large crew of as many as 250 pirates.

The pirates often determined a ship's nationality first. Then they raised that country's flag on the pirate ship so they appeared to be friendly. Now able to draw close to the unsuspecting ship, the pirates hoisted Blackbeard's flag only at the last moment. Blackbeard's Flag.

Merchant crews often surrendered without a fight the moment they saw Blackbeard's flag. If the ship didn't surrender after warnings, the pirates moved in. Frequently their first target: the sailor at the ship's wheel. Then, as the pilotless ship drifted aimlessly, the pirates snared it with grappling hooks, pulled it closer, and leaped aboard. When the attack ended, the pirates took the passengers and crew hostage and ransacked cabins looking for coins, gold, silver, and jewellery. Blackbeard repeated this scene over and over again.

Tempting Fate: Why Nonnuclear States Confront Nuclear Opponents (Cornell Studies in Security Affairs)

by Paul C. Avey

Why would countries without nuclear weapons even think about fighting nuclear-armed opponents? A simple answer is that no one believes nuclear weapons will be used. But that answer fails to consider why nonnuclear state leaders would believe that in the first place. In this superb unpacking of the dynamics of conflict under conditions of nuclear monopoly, Paul C. Avey argues that the costs and benefits of using nuclear weapons create openings that weak nonnuclear actors can exploit.Tempting Fate uses four case studies to show the key strategies available to nonnuclear states: Iraqi decision-making under Saddam Hussein in confrontations with the United States; Egyptian leaders' thinking about the Israeli nuclear arsenal during wars in 1969–70 and 1973; Chinese confrontations with the United States in 1950, 1954, and 1958; and a dispute that never escalated to war, the Soviet-United States tensions between 1946 and 1948 that culminated in the Berlin Blockade. Those strategies include limiting the scope of the conflict, holding chemical and biological weapons in reserve, seeking outside support, and leveraging international non-use norms. Counterintuitively, conventionally weak nonnuclear states are better positioned to pursue these strategies than strong ones, so that wars are unlikely when the nonnuclear state is powerful relative to its nuclear opponent. Avey demonstrates clearly that nuclear weapons cast a definite but limited shadow, and while the world continues to face various nuclear challenges, understanding conflict in nuclear monopoly will remain a pressing concern for analysts and policymakers.

No Useless Mouth: Waging War and Fighting Hunger in the American Revolution

by Rachel B. Herrmann

In the era of the American Revolution, the rituals of diplomacy between the British, Patriots, and Native Americans featured gifts of food, ceremonial feasts, and a shared experience of hunger. When diplomacy failed, Native Americans could destroy food stores and cut off supply chains in order to assert authority. Black colonists also stole and destroyed food to ward off hunger and carve out tenuous spaces of freedom. Hunger was a means of power and a weapon of war.In No Useless Mouth Rachel B. Herrmann argues that Native Americans and formerly enslaved black colonists ultimately lost the battle against hunger and the larger struggle for power because white British and United States officials curtailed the abilities of men and women to fight hunger on their own terms. By describing three interrelated behaviors—food diplomacy, victual imperialism, and victual warfare—the book shows that, during this tumultuous period, hunger prevention efforts offered strategies to claim power, maintain communities, and keep rival societies at bay.Herrmann shows how Native Americans, free blacks, and enslaved peoples were "useful mouths"—not mere supplicants for food, without rights or power—who used hunger for cooperation and violence, and took steps to circumvent starvation. Her wide-ranging research on black Loyalists, Iroquois, Cherokee, Creek, and Western Confederacy Indians demonstrates that hunger creation and prevention were tools of diplomacy and warfare available to all people involved in the American Revolution. Placing hunger at the center of these struggles foregrounds the contingency and plurality of power in the British Atlantic during the Revolutionary Era.

Strategy Six Pack 5 (Illustrated): A Treatise on Tactics, The English Civil War, Genghis Khan, The Boer War, Morgan's Raid and More

by Elbert Hubbard

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”― Sun Tzu, The Art of WarStrategy Six Pack 5 presents a smart sextet of tactical texts:A Treatise on Tactics by Francis J. LippittA Tale of the English Civil War by G. A. HentyGenghis Khan by Jacob AbbottThe Boer War by Arthur Conan DoyleMorgan's Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. HinesGaribaldi by Elbert HubbardFrancis J. Lippitt’s A Treatise on Tactics is a detailed, sophisticated mid-Victorian survey delineating trends in military thinking as relates to the three branches of Infantry, Artillery and Cavalry. Morgan’s Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. Hines – three participants of the famous Civil War skirmish – is a forgotten military classic and includes the raid, capture and escape of Confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his troops, known as Morgan’s Men. Evidently Sherlock Holmes’ creator Arthur Conan Doyle had a lot to say about the Boer War. By the end of hostilities in 1902, his book The Boer War (originally published as The War in South Africa, Its Cause and Conduct) had been published 16 times, with each edition revised by Doyle. The mystery maestro brings the same analytical skills displayed in his fiction to this definitive look at the 1899-1902 conflict. There is also G. A. Henty’s richly descriptive novel A Tale of the English Civil War, Garibaldi, a biography of the Italian general, and Genghis Khan by Jacob Abbott, a look at the life of the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire.Illustrations include:King Charles I of EnglandThe Battle of Marston Moor, 1644Oliver CromwellThe 1st Khagan of the Mongol EmpireGenghis Khan entering BeijingJohn Hunt MorganThomas H.

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection against them).Bretislav Friedrich and Martin Wolf (Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, the successor institution of Haber’s institute) together with Dieter Hoffmann, Jürgen Renn, and Florian Schmaltz (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science) organized an international symposium to commemorate the centenary of the infamous chemical attack. The symposium examined crucial facets of chemical warfare from the first research on and deployment of chemical weapons in WWI to the development and use of chemical warfare during the century hence. The focus was on scientific, ethical, legal, and political issues of chemical weapons research and deployment — including the issue of dual use — as well as the ongoing effort to control the possession of chemical weapons and to ultimately achieve their elimination.The volume consists of papers presented at the symposium and supplemented by additional articles that together cover key aspects of chemical warfare from 22 April 1915 until the summer of 2015.

by History by the Hour

In this one-hour history book, discover why 1944 was the year of no return. A year of triumph for the Allies and of despair for the Axis forces, as we uncover the main events of that year during World War II, the most lethal war of all times.As rapid as the Axis advance had been, it was rolled back just as rapidly in 1944.The Nazis were losing everything they had gained in Eastern Europe, and after the Allies landed in Normandy, France, pulling off the impossible, with the largest invasion force in history, they were on the verge of losing everything in Western Europe as well. The loss of Italy, meanwhile, had become almost a foregone conclusion when Rome fell in the spring of 1944, and by late summer the fighting had reached all the way up the peninsula to Pisa.The Japanese situation was a little bit more complicated, with both gains and losses, but the overall trajectory was the same. The Axis as a whole was on a backward blitz that put the fascists on the receiving end of the same kind of overwhelming offensives that they had unleashed upon an unsuspecting world just a few years before.The Axis powers that had previously shaken the world with their fascist aggression were now thoroughly shaken themselves. By 1944 their reign of terror was almost over, but they would still fight on, clinging to the fantastic hope that they would somehow pull victory from the jaws of defeat. Thankfully, the fevered dreams of these madmen and megalomaniacs would not prevail.In this short read one hour book, you will know everything you need to know about what happened in 1944 during World War II.Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited!Scroll back up and click the Buy Now button located on the right side of this page.

The Falklands My Experience

by J Massey

The idea of this book is to show The Falkland Island Battle Sites in SUNLIGHT.
THE 5000-plus British Troops would only have seen snow, rain, gale force winds very little daylight and extreme cold.
The Island is bleak in the winter but being lucky to return in a Spring and again in an Autumn I saw the island in a different light.
I hope that those who fought in the war there in 82 and have not been lucky enough to return in peace time can enjoy my pictures.
The Falklands has changed and will never be the same as before 1982.
The population has more than doubled and the way of life changed with it.
The one thing that the Island will always have, is the memory that in 1982 the whole life of the Island was defended by so many worthy men and women and remains British.

Four Weeks in the Trenches

by Fritz Kreisler

This brief record of the fighting on the Eastern front in the great war is the outcome of a fortunate meeting. The writer chanced to be dining with Mr. Kreisler soon after his arrival in this country, after his dismissal from the hospital where he recovered from his wound. For nearly two hours he listened, thrilled and moved, to the great violinist's modest, vivid narrative of his experiences and adventures. It seemed in the highest degree desirable that the American public should have an opportunity of reading this narrative from the pen of one in whose art so many of us take a profound interest. It also was apparent that since so little of an authentic nature had been heard from the Russo-Austrian field of warfare, this story would prove an important contribution to the contemporary history of the war.After much persuasion, Mr. Kreisler reluctantly acceded to the suggestion that he write out his personal memories of the war for publication. He has completed his narrative in the midst of grave difficulties, writing it piecemeal in hotels and railway trains in the course of a concert tour through the country. It is offered by the publishers to the public with confidence that it will be found one of the most absorbing and informing narratives of the war that has yet appeared.
