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

by Samuel Leech

Samuel Leech (1798–1848) was a young sailor in the Royal Navy and the United States Navy during the War of 1812. 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

by Ross Bryan

Squinting from a one-two punch of exhaustion and the eerie faded-brass hue of a desert sun that doesn't take breaks and never seems to want to, I’m trying to decide just how in the hell I ended up here. 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. ...

Courage

by Anthony Vincent Bruno

1 John 3:16 - By this we know what love is: Jesus laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.The Holocaust and the Soviet Union's persecution of anyone opposed to Communism are two of the most sickening crimes ever inflicted upon the human race. 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...

The Electricity of Life: A Historical Novel based on the true story of Otto and Viola Schmitt and their role in winning World War II and establishing a medical device industry.

by T H. Harbinger

The focus on Professor Otto Schmitt and his development of the first Magnetic Airborne Detector for use during World War II makes for an excellent illustration of the life and importance of scientists. Scientists are portrayed as oddballs, self-centered, single minded, and lacking common sense, which they are, but they mostly can solve problems that no one else has been able to solve. The case of Otto Schmitt, who convinced the military he could develop a method to detect submerged U-boats, proved the method, and then 200 systems were ordered, all in the matter of ten months, is a tight snapshot on the methods and lifestyle of a scientist. Most technical developments do not have such a compact and easily measureable result. On 18 February 1942 Otto first devised and prototyped his ‘u...

THE LAFAYETTE SQUADRON: [Translated]

by M. P. LYNCH

Americans love a good fight, and if the cause is just, all the better. When the Kaiser tried to bring authoritarian rule to the west of the Rhine, American expatriates in France stepped up to stop him. Men who knew how to fly offered their services to the young French Air Force - as did men who did not know how to fly, but insisted that they could with hilariously disastrous results. The great Ace Lufbery, along with his comrades Thaw, Hall, Rockwell, and others more or less invented the "dogfight" over the bloody fields of Verdun and Flanders, and when they were not on the attack they soothed their restlessness with drinking, fighting, shooting, and adopting a couple of pet lions to serve as their mascots. Soon these men came together in a single unit under Captain George Thenault, ...

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...

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....
