Wine In The Sand: My Adventures through Desert STORM

by Jim White

I was starting the paperwork to leave the Air Force while coming to the end of my 4 year hitch. Next I was sitting in the middle of a war zone with no end to my military stint in sight. This is how I found myself in Desert Shield/Storm, and how my friends and I did everything possible to break every rule we were given. We didn't just make lemonade, we juiced it up with high octane, then lit the box it came in on fire! M-16s, condoms, alcohol, and women. We might die, but we were going to laugh our way there! I'm sure everyone who went to Desert Storm has a story. This one is mine....

A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling

by Marc Garrett

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn't leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund....

by History-Episode

A Complete Biography of Queen Elizabeth I – A Very Important Queen in World HistoryFrom the moment she was conceived, Queen Elizabeth I of England was the subject of controversy. The daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth was accused of being illegitimate by English Catholics before she was even born, as they refused to acknowledge the annulment of Henry's first marriage. Elizabeth's childhood was tumultuous, as her mother was executed when she was two and a half years old, and she was raised as Henry's daughter but not Henry's heir.Elizabeth became Queen in 1558, succeeding her half-sister Mary Tudor to the throne. Elizabeth refused to marry immediately and rule as co-regent with her husband, as Mary had done, and her decision to remain single and rule al...

George Washington: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of US Presidents Book 1)

by Hourly History

George Washington
George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role,...

The Peppercorn Tree

by Jill Lovett

The Peppercorn Tree traces Jill Lovett's autobiographical memoir of growing up in a Sydney Australia suburb in the 1940's and 1950's. She has used the analogy of a hardy Peppercorn tree which survived in her childhood backyard, symbolising for her the endurance of suburban 'battlers' struggling to achieve purpose and hope within a somewhat barren environment..It reveals a very different world of post Second World War frugality, British style education, no television or computers; a time when children largely created their own entertainment, were expected to conform and obey all authority figures and accept limitation in terms of their personal development and dreams.The final chapters reveal how Jill's childhood impacted on her later life as a mother of six children, a victim of a difficu...

The Egyptian Conception of Immortality

by George Andrew Reisner

Of the nations which have contributed to the direct stream of civilization, Egypt and Mesopotamia are at present believed to be the oldest. The chronological dispute as to the relative antiquity of the two countries is of minor importance; for while in Babylonia the historical material is almost entirely inscriptional, in Egypt we know the handicrafts, the weapons, the arts, and, to a certain extent, the religious beliefs of the race up to a period when it was just emerging from the Stone Age. In a word, Egypt presents the most ancient race whose manner of life is known to man. From the beginning of its history that is, from about 4500 B.C. we can trace the development of a religion one of whose most prominent elements was a promise of a life after death. It was still a great religion when...
