The Cossacks (Illustrated)

by

Cossacks are a group of predominantly East Slavic-speaking people who became known as members of democratic, self-governing, semi-military communities, predominantly located in Ukraine and in Russia. They inhabited sparsely populated areas and islands in the lower Dnieper, Don, Terek, and Ural river basins and played an important role in the historical and cultural development of both Russia and Ukraine.

KIM PHILBY: Our Man in Moscow

Your best friend is a traitor.

That is what I thought when I researched this work. I try to reach new depths, to get to the wider part of the story to give you the thrills you as the reader expect from a story.

So here I am writing another book.

I’ll be truthful this one is going to shock you. It will make you think uncomfortably about your friends – and see them in a new light. After reading this I doubt if you will ever trust anyone again. Every time you go out, every time you meet people all you will see is dishonesty.

That’s right, dishonesty.

When someone works in the world of secret espionage they expect it first-hand. The lies and the duplicity committed by a man with no conscience to the consequences ...

The Expansion of Europe 1642-1789

by Wilbur Abbott

WHEN in the last months of 1648 was signed the great peace which brought to an end the Thirty Years' War and with it the mediaeval polity which it finally destroyed; as the army of diplomats whose work it was dispersed to their respective governments, the awe-inspiring mass of documents which formed the fruit of their long labors might have led men to believe that Europe would hasten to enjoy the peace which she so needed and which her people for the most part so greatly desired. But whatever hopes of quiet were entertained, were already far on the way to disappointment; for the Europe to which the diplomats returned was even then altered or altering before their eyes and already shaping itself for new conflict. Scarcely a state of any consequence prepared to recruit its resources by the a...

ADMIRAL LEE the MENTOR of HUMAN RACE: SECTION A (The Unknown Leaders Their Struggle and Success Book 3)

by Young H. D. Kim

We read this series of books not because we do not know the globe is one, but because we want to know when and how it became the ONE GLOBE, and what it looked like before it became one and what it will look like for us in the coming years.

The ONE GLOBE where we live our lives today was built upon wars. No blames for all the fighting and conquering per se though, because it is the way of nature.

When there’s a victor or a survivor, there’s always a victim too; mommy lions do not hunt and kill poor animals for fun, but to survive, to feed their babes. For the record, ancient Roman Empire, from which we owe so much for today’s our way of life, was built upon the hard works of the slaves, and when the slaves were freed and given the citizenship, the country col...

Meet eight combat-injured men who sustained life-altering injuries. Read eight inspiring stories of heroism and the re-building of independent, productive and fulfilling lives after seemingly impossible circumstances.

This project looks at the struggles of these incredible men to reshape their lives after combat. It also sets these stories within the context of current veteran healthcare; injury, suicide, and disability statistics; and looks briefly at the impacts on the caregivers who support these men. Being face-to-face with combat-injured veterans has given me an insight that all Americans should have. Veterans of the Vietnam era began the process of opening our eyes to the grim realities that await veterans both psychologically and physically. These men’s stories show...

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...

A Voice from the Main Deck: Being a Record of the Thirty Years' Adventures of Samuel Leech

He became notable as one of very few who wrote an account of his experiences, titled, in the manner of the time, "A Voice from the Main Deck".Leech's nautical career began in 1810, at the age of thirteen, when Lord William FitzRoy agreed to take Samuel into his frigate HMS Macedonian.He was a powder monkey during Macedonian's duel with the United States in 1812, and would later vividly describe the carnage on board the British ship before she struck her colors.  He was a prisoner of war but his imprisonment seems not to have been too uncomfortable, and did not last long in any case, since the war ended the following year.Many years later he revisited Macedonian, now a US ship...

Beyond the Wire: A Soldier's Perspective on the Iraq War

Here, being Iraq. Cavalry Scout. In the Army for that matter. Perhaps if I thought long and hard enough I could remember. I knew for damn sure that I had no shortage of time to work it out.

My journey had started 6,250 miles to the west in a crumbling Ohio mill town called Ashtabula. I had spent the better part of a year at a 3rd shift job in a factory on the far end of town, trying not to lose myself in the mullets and meth of the American Midwest. Then came 9/11. The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. ...

What happened to the Christian Church during these genocides? When Nazi tanks rolled over the Polish border in 1939, the clergy were marked for death. The lucky ones were shot immediately; unfortunately, thousands were sent to camps where they were starved, abused or experimented upon. Stalin and his successors viewed Christians as a threat to communist ideology. Men and women were executed or sent to gulags where their sentences could be doubled on the most tenuous of excuses. Nazism and the Soviet Union are gon...

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 Unit...

Material Cultures of Childhood in Second World War Britain (Material Culture and Modern Conflict)

by Gabriel Moshenska

How do children cope when their world is transformed by war? This book draws on memory narratives to construct an historical anthropology of childhood in Second World Britain, focusing on objects and spaces such as gas masks, air raid shelters and bombed-out buildings. In their struggles to cope with the fears and upheavals of wartime, with families divided and familiar landscapes lost or transformed, children reimagined and reshaped these material traces of conflict into toys, treasures and playgrounds. This study of the material worlds of wartime childhood offers a unique viewpoint into an extraordinary period in history with powerful resonances across global conflicts into the present day....

Smirking miscreants walk free whilst the innocent suffer. Aided by a Scotland Yard informant, the trio embark on a brutal, covert crusade to rid Britain of its nefarious untouchables.

Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

Staff Cadet: Bishing, Bogging and Bastardisation at Duntroon (From Boys' Brigade to Brigadier Book 1)

by Allan A. Murray

This is not a history of the Royal Military College, nor a history of the Corps of Staff Cadets. It is about my experience as a Staff Cadet within a company of the Corps of Staff Cadets – ‘the Corps’ – in the 1970s and 80s.

I have written about living at Duntroon, the Canberra suburb on the other side of Mount Pleasant devoted to the Royal Military College. In the 1970s and 80s, Staff Cadets were required to be single and ‘live-in’ the provided accommodation blocks at Duntroon. Mostly for four years, but for some it was five years. My experience with a group of young men, aspiring to be commissioned Army Officers, is the subject of this book; including ‘bishing’, ‘bogging’, ‘bastardisation’ and going bush.

I started writing this book in 19...
