Not for Queen and Country: A No-Holds-Barred Account of Life as a British Soldier

by Edward Denmark

From Army cadets on Merseyside to action in the Falklands and Northern Ireland

Edward Denmark joined the British army for adventure, and to serve Queen and country. However, as he prepared to go ashore in the frozen, windswept Falkland Islands 8000 miles from Britain, facing a well dug in, larger enemy force, he understood at that moment that this was not for Queen and Country. He was now fighting for his own life, and the chance to see the sunrise once more.

Follow this young soldier as he endures the bitter cold and constant air attack by a very determined Argentine enemy in the Falklands war, to patrolling the brutally violent streets of Northern Ireland, where tragedy came from nowhere. If you have ever wondered what our soldiers face in war and how they keep ...

A Ride to Khiva: Travels and Adventures in Central Asia

by Frederick Burnaby

It is 1875, the time of the 'Great Game', when the British and Russian Empires are vying for power in central Asia. Great Britain learns of Russia’s plans to annex India, the 'jewel in the crown' of the Empire. A British officer rides for Khiva, a Russian city closed to European travelers. He is on a dangerous mission, to learn if this remote and dangerous oasis is about to be used as a springboard for the Russian invasion of India.  Captain Frederick Burnaby ballooned across the English Channel, traveled in Spain and Russia, and was wounded, and eventually killed, fighting for Britain's empire. This account of his perilous journey to Khiva, published in 1876 and immediately reprinted, brought him instant fame....

Pericles and the Golden Age of Athens

by Evelyn Abbott

THIS sketch of the Age of Pericles consists of two parts: in the first and larger part I have endeavoured to trace the growth of the Athenian empire and the causes which alienated Athens and Sparta; in the second I have given a brief account of the government, the art and literature, the society and manners of the Periclean Athens.It will be seen that I have ventured to form an opinion about the part which Pericles played as a practical statesman widely different from the estimate presented by Grote and Curtius. It is, so far as I can judge, impossible to deny that he destroyed a form of government under which his city attained to the height of her prosperity and that he plunged her into a hopeless and demoralising war. These are not the achievements of a great statesman. And so far as leg...

Die Hard

by Alan David

Chet Manning, troubleshooter with the South and West Railroad, never needed to look for trouble.

It just seemed to stroll right up and punch him in the gut.

To Manning, that was a way of life.

The big problem right now was a saloon girl called Glory Harpe - the troubleshooter had killed her man, and Glory was out for revenge.

Roping in two gunslinging sidekicks, she'd got herself a plan to see Manning die agonisingly, bloodily and very, very slowly.

Chet was on his own.

He was facing two cunning thugs and a kill-crazy slut.

For once, the odds seemed too long for comfort...

Will his courage last long enough for him to find and kill his outlawed enemies?

And is he prepare...

Pompeii: Frozen In Time The Tragic Eruption Of Mount Vesuvius

by Cheryl Leonard

Over 2000 years ago, the Mount Vesuvius volcano towered 6000 ft. high, being close to the Bay of Naples, it erupted with a powerful explosive force, resulting in the destruction of the cities of Pompeii, along with her sister city, Herculaneum and Stabiae, buried in a pile of volcanic ash , pumice , and molten rock. Notable powerful men in the Roman empire, Julius Caesar, and emperors Augustus and Tiberius owned homes in the seaside resort town of Stabiae. After the initial eruption had ceased, a massive pyroclastic flow cascaded down its slopes toward Herculaneum , causing death and devastation instantaneously to all in its path. In a period of slightly over 24 hours, the entire cities were buried in ash and debris, to be lost to the world for centuries. Pompeii is the ...

Mazarin

by Arthur Hassall

It seems inevitable that Mazarin will always suffer by comparison with Richelieu. The latter, who has been described as the greatest political genius which France has ever produced, appeals to the imagination by the firmness and the success of his policy. The ability with which he managed the foreign affairs of France, and his creation of an administrative system which continued to the Kevolution, place Richelieu in the foremost rank of French statesmen. And yet his successor, though less illustrious, equally deserves to stand among those who have contributed most to the greatness of France. What MM. Hanotaux and d’Avenel have done for Richelieu’s memory has been done for Mazarin by M. Chéruel. Hehas made it impossible for us to regard Mazarin as a mere Italian adventurer, or to agree...

Stalingrad Battle of the Century: An English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov offers an authoritative history of the Battle of Stalingrad. After all, he was there. Chuikov's account of the battle was first published in 1962. That book was translated into English and published in the 1965 book, The Battle for Stalingrad. This book, Stalingrad: Battle of the Century, is a translation of Chuikov's 1975 edition, a very different work.There is no doubt that Stalingrad was a turning point in World War II. It was, perhaps, a turning point in human history. Adolf Hitler's psychopathic obsession with conquering the stronghold on the Volga made this an event of more than military significance. Chuikov himself wrote that Stalingrad was 'an objective at which all strategic, tactical, political and aspirational goals coalesced.' Indeed. It was the beginning of the...

Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Creating the Intellectual redefines how we understand relations between intellectuals and the Chinese socialist revolution of the last century. Under the Chinese Communist Party, “the intellectual” was first and foremost a widening classification of individuals based on Marxist thought. The party turned revolutionaries and otherwise ordinary people into subjects identified as usable but untrustworthy intellectuals, an identification that profoundly affected patterns of domination, interaction, and rupture within the revolutionary enterprise. Drawing on a wide range of data, Eddy U takes the reader on a journey that ...
