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....

Queen Elizabeth I: A Biography of A Very Important Queen in World History (The People's Queen of England) (Fascinating World History Episodes Book 10)

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...

Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters: Discover the Extraordinary Legends, Folklore & Myths of Ancient Greece (Greek Mythology, Greek Gods, Ancient Greece, Mythology)

by Franklin Pascal

Discover the Extraordinary Legends & Myths of Ancient Greece
The Greeåks were one of the first civilizations to conceive gods and goddesses that were similar to human beings: attractive men and women, old folks with dignity and humor, and young innocent children. Naturally, the gods interacted and communicated with humans on a regular basis. The gods were not typically withdrawn and reserved figures; they actively participated in the affairs of mortals and exercised their greater power to those they favored. In addition, they were neither omnipotent nor omniscient; they possessed individual and humanlike qualities that portrayed them as fallible, imperfect deities rather than absolute and supreme beings.

The Great Depression and the New Deal: Core Documents

by John Moser

This collection of documents on the Depression and New Deal is the second volume in an extended series of document collections from the Ashbrook Center that will cover major periods, themes, and institutions in American history and government. The series began with a collection on the Founding. This volume follows appropriately, because it makes clear the reasons why and the degree to which Franklin Roosevelt intended the New Deal to be a re-founding of the American republic. In presenting the words that Roosevelt spoke, the collection shows us not only his arguments but his masterful rhetoric, which presented the New Deal as only an updating of the Founding. The collection presents as well the arguments of those who opposed the New Deal — Democrats as well as Republicans — and those w...
