by Obaidur Rahaman

Three boys, immature, inexperienced and recklessly overenthusiastic, set off on a hike. Their goal is to decipher the secret entrance to a deserted historic fort at a hilltop in the Indian jungle. They are convinced that they can do it without the help of a map or a local guide. Figuring out the hidden path that leads up to an otherwise unscalable fort is great fun. It is even more fun when it is done in the night, under the cover of darkness, just like the invaders who attempted to conquer the fort in the past! But as soon as they start their journey, something mysterious starts to happen. Time starts playing with them, things go wrong at every step. However, instead of stopping them, the setbacks and misfortunes rather fuel their zeal and determination. They ignore all the bad omens and ...

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.

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...

by Steve Theme

Experience the charity, horrors, and wonders of hitchhiking seven thousand miles alone. As nineteen-year-old Steve Theme leaves on a hitchhiking trek, he has no destination, no timeframe, and no self-respect. A home life of abuse and addiction didn’t prevent him from being selected Scholar/Athlete of the Year as a senior in high school, but hiding one life from the other has broken him into fragments.
