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. By the end of the 18th century, Cossack nations had been transformed into a special military estate (Sosloviye), "a military class," similar to the knights of medieval Europe in feudal times.In The Cossacks, William Penn Cresson traces the history and culture of these legendary Slavic warriors.

The Diary of Lost Soul Personal and Professional Wandering

by Steven Charles Hirschfeld

I moved from New York to join America Online just to learn I would be spending all my time retaining customers by giving free trial extensions to everyone who joined with a free AOL disc they picked-up from a Blockbuster cashier or random supermarket. The effect of call center hell is released into a personal journal which served as therapy and is now available to the public along with publishing of the years around the fateful events. Read the inside stories from 2004 inside a diary of someone who witnessed how a corporate giant came to a town like a "Normal Rockwell painting" and the personal story of one soldier in their army.The story follows the quest to find personal and professional harmony through relationships with a visiting son and elusive romance. The quest for a wife to have more children while time seems to run out is a challenging goal with no qualified prospects. Furthermore, career development takes a back seat to finding any job that can support an ambitious private life. Note, since this is a private journal from 2004, the content is written as a daily journal with the back story of AOL.Jack Salk has typed his journals from 1987 through 2015 and published them as individual books for preservation. However, the books have reached an audience and some names have been changed.

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.

The Nam Within

by Leonard Reese

The Nam Within, by Leonard Reese, is a narrative non-fiction memoir that speaks to veterans from all wars and others who deal with PTSD, depression, and the feeling that they may be “going crazy,” and their families and friends, so that they can see that survival is possible and that they are not alone, despite the battle scars that keep rising to the surface long after the physical combat ceases. "I did the best that I could to tell my story with all of the truth that I have within me. Almost fifty years have passed since my thirteen-month tour of duty in Vietnam from 1969–1970. I still see some of those images as clearly as if they were happenings within a blink-of-an-eye past. While others, partially confused and shaking like a pile of pick-up-sticks awaiting the next attempt at success or tragedy, arrive within the shadows of the night, blurred and weighted by the evening’s dew.Incorrect names and misplaced trails, rice paddies, and small areas of high ground dot these pages as if they were paint sprayed across canvas. Yet, in my mind’s eye they are accurate and certain in their descriptions, and even more clearly, in their grip upon my scared soul. Please know that these lines are much less about the fight than they are about the emotions of the men who did the fighting. We were more than just sand-box warriors moving from one pile of windblown up-turned-bucket encampments to the next moment’s instant rebirth, within a new pack of forest green plastic men preparing for counter attack or ambush.It is the feel for the war as it happened, and continues to happen, to this one man trapped within his memories, and that, I pray, might open at least one lone person’s eyes, or increase a loved one’s ability to understand his self-imposed blindness. I want you to experience the loss of self that many like myself went through so that you might more accurately understand the ghosts that continue to walk a kill-radius behind, or to our front."Leonard Reese is a retired school-bus driver who makes his home in the country outside of the small, East Texas town of Tatum. During his time as a bus driver, he taught English and History at Tatum ISD for thirty-five years to supplement his bus-driving income. He is married to his college sweetheart, Cynthia Jameson Reese, and they have two children, Elizabeth and Downs, who rule their world. Leonard was a rifleman in Quang Nam Provence, Vietnam with the 2nd platoon of Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Regiment, 1st Marine Division from 1969-70.

A troubled childhood weighted with overbearing responsibility, fear and insecurity, depression, and the challenges of marriage and adult relationships, Michelle's life has never been easy. However, the one constant in her life - her faith in God - underpins and provides the foundation upon which she now stands.
