A Syrian Boy: Based On a True Story, A Young Refugee and His Sister Travel from Syria to Germany escaping ISIS

by Zabi Saffi

Gods, Kings and the Governments have clashed. One's happiness is another's blood. The lower class citizens are turned into slaves without them acknowledging it. The space between the poor and the rich is dramatically long, so long, that the gods cannot level the two groups. Religion, power and money is destroying the Earth as you read.

Damaged tanks, cars, fighter jets and buildings are all that can be seen. Adnan and his sister Yana never let go of each other's hand knowing that they could be killed any second. Adnan looked to the left and saw fallen trees that were hit by some kind of bullet or bomb. A silent state with not a single bird flying. Dead, dry and abandoned.

This is the story of Adnan, a 13-year-old Syrian boy, that faces hell in his own country and is forced to escape the once beautiful village to him. His journey begins in Syria and ends in Germany. Adnan and his sister Yana go through so much pain during their journey that it breaks my heart writing their story!

Feel free to cry at the beginning, middle and at the end!

John F. Kennedy: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of US Presidents Book 35)

by Hourly History

John F. Kennedy* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.John F. Kennedy is the president that everyone knows. He was a rich man’s son, an athlete, a war hero, a ladies’ man, an author, a president, his face rendered forever young because the last time Americans saw him, he was riding in a convertible in Dallas, his glamorous wife at his side. Then the bullets struck, and the assassinated president became a legend, the truth of his life obscured by his tragic and untimely death. But JFK had more depth to his character than the magazine covers indicated. Inside you will read about...✓ No Irish Need Apply✓ War and the Kennedys✓ Kennedy in Congress✓ Kennedy for President✓ Kennedy Women✓ The PresidencyAnd much more!The rich man’s son was the grandson of Irishmen who knew what it was to be denied jobs because Irish weren’t welcome in Boston. The athlete suffered from poor health all his life, from a bad back to Addison’s disease. The war hero whose PT-109 boat became part of his campaign legend was the son who survived; elder brother Joe, flying on a secret mission, was killed for his heroism. The ladies’ man loved his wife, but fidelity was not a concept revered by the Kennedy men. The Pulitzer Prize that he was awarded for Profiles in Courage should have gone to the person who actually wrote it. In 1963, death in Dallas ended his first term as president, bringing an end to the optimism that he inaugurated when he narrowly defeated Vice President Richard Nixon in the 1960 election. But the Kennedy legend, like Camelot, lives forever.

Serial Killer: Henry McKenny: Big Harry

by W Lacky

First page preview:

George Brett was a hard man. A well-known East End haulage contractor, he was fond of a fight. On Saturday 4 January 1975, he walked into a church hall in Goodmayes in Essex, accompanied by his 10-year old son Terry Neither was to come out alive.

The old church hall had long been converted for light industrial use. One half was a soft toy business, while an engineering company specialising in underwater equipment occupied the other.

Brett had been lured to the side by a man he knew as Mr Jennings. There was the possibility of some business for his haulage firm, and his son had come along for the ride. The floor of the hall was completely covered in children’s teddy bears, and racks around the wall contained diving equipment. The only other occupant of the building was a very big man, bent over a work bench.

‘Jennings’ sat Brett down on the only chair and gave the boy a teddy bear to hold. Before any more could be said, the man at the bench raised a silenced Sten sub-machine gun and shot Brett through the head. Brett fell, and the big man came closer to make certain of his kill with a second shot to the head.

by George Catlin

George Catlin was a fascinating figure of the nineteenth century, an artist-explorer who ventured deep into the wilds of the newly discovered Americas to paint the rapidly vanishing indigenous populations, their leaders, warriors, medicine men and scenes from their modes of life. The gifts Catlin received over the years from these remote peoples formed the basis for a vast, important collection which Catlin loaned to the world’s biggest museums, together with his portraits. Because of the stunning, life-like likenesses he created, the awed tribes dubbed Catlin Te-hee-pe-nee Washed which means The Great White Medicine.This new 2017 edition of My Life Among the Indians is illustrated with many examples of Catlin’s artwork from this period.

Ji Do Kwan The Way to Wisdom: The Creation and Evolution of Korea's Only Eclectic Kwan

by Losik Ph.D, Len

Ji Do Kwan The Way to Wisdom provides the most information available in one place about the Ji Do Kwan that includes the history and creation of one Korean Kwan that was unlike all the rest. Through its dynamic and sometime precarious existence, the Ji Do Kwan survives Korea's civil war to become a major influence in the 1950's era of Korean Kwans and the internal conflicts between the Korean martial arts community and the new, independent, post Japanese occupation Korean government fighting the Korean martial arts community to unify and Ji Do Kwan's support to the Korean government and its secret plan to force the Korean martial arts community to create Taekwondo and get Taekwondo into the Olympics as Korea's national martial art, just as the Japanese government was working to do the same with Judo. Other chapters focus just on the Ji Do Kwan and other important Korean Kwan's and their influence on the direction of Ji Do Kwan, their Grandmaster's conflicts with Ji Do Kwan Instructors and Grandmasters and which Kwans became famous and why and which did not and disappeared. There are tables for correlating traditional Ji Do Kwan Tang Soo Do Hyungs (the predecessor to Taekwondo) and Ji Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do Poomsae to Okinawa and Japanese Kata versions. There are also several tables for correlating many more Hyungs to Chinese, Okinawa and Japanese Kata that existed and evolved during the 19th and 20th centuries and a Korean martial arts chronology. This book has the largest amount of information in one location about the Ji Do Kwan and its instructional methods that made it one of the most powerful Kwans with some of the information about the Ji Do Kwan will not have been be published previously. The author includes a substantial Bibliography of over 80 references, a Glossary and all encompassing Index for the serious reader of martial arts history. This book is for the serious, experienced and knowledgeable reader of Korean martial arts and a reader
