Forced into the brutal Battle of the Bulge of 1944, two soldiers on opposing sides find the courage to desert a war gone sour. For both American GI Wendell Lett and German seaman Holger Frings, the relentless bloodbath of World War II has become a treacherous prison and a curse. Just as Wendell Lett meets Heloise, a wise Belgian woman who offers him a chance of deliverance from the physical and emotional carnage of war, he is pushed into a reckless false flag mission. At the same time behind enemy lines, Frings becomes a forced volunteer for a similar German operation that takes him to a breaking point. The two enemies' destructive fates collide in the surprise Ardennes counteroffensive--the 1944 Battle of the Bulge--and both have to finally confront the war that betrayed them. As Lett tries to find his way back to his beloved Heloise, he and Frings team up to desert their savage overseers while the battles rage around them. In Under False Flags, the absurdity of war is brought to brutal light as each side--whether friend or foe--attempts to disguise their cannon fodder in enemy uniform. This is a gritty war tale that turns conventional notions of valor, heroism, and prestige on its head.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Excerpt: William Does His Bit is the 23rd book of children's short stories in the Just William series by Richmal Crompton. This book contains 10 stories. It was first published in 1941, and the first published versions are now collectors items and pretty rare. Like its immediate predecessors and the next two installments this book contains the central theme of World War II and the war effort, which was being fought at the date of this book's original publication. William hears the family talk about a man called Grissel, who apparently appears to exist in many places at once, helping the Germans. When he learns the man is in fact many men doing the same thing, he sets out to find Grissel and capture him. His search takes him to the village, where at an intersection, two elderly ladies are talking about passwords in whispers. William at once decides to follow the second one, who goes to a school building through the cover of laurel bushes and at a blackened window, William sees an elderly gentleman with many women talking and putting flags on maps. He, believing it to be Grissel's gang plotting propaganda, follows the man to his house, and when he starts mowing his lawn, he rings the police asking them to come. William is caught "stealing" plates and cutlery so he can see where Grissel's papers are. The police start to arrest him, as William talks about the man and his doing. The man dismisses the police, rewarding William for his "efforts to the country" with a bun and lemonade. William walks home contentedly and tells his mother what happened. His mother does not believe him, and c...

Abandoned Places Collins

The world we live in is constantly changing, with greater levels of development and population increase. There are, however, some places in the world where nature is doing the work rather than man. Places include: * Severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Six Flags Jazzland has been abandoned since. Several of the rides still stand, a testimony to the resilience of New Orleans. * Shicheng in China has been under water for 53 years since the Xin'an River Hydro Plant flooded the area. The city was founded 1,300 years ago. * Chernobyl was totally abandoned after the nearby nuclear disaster in 1986. Due to radiation, it has been left untouched ever since the incident and will be for many thousands of years into the future. Nature now rules the city in what resembles an apocalyptic movie. * Poveglia is an island in the Venetian Lagoon which under the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte became a dumping ground for plague victims and later an asylum for the mentally ill. * Plymouth was the capital of the island of Montserrat. The town was overwhelmed by volcanic eruptions starting in 1995 and was abandoned. * St Kilda a remote Scottish Island may have been permanently inhabited for at least two millennia, the population probably never exceeding 180. The entire population was evacuated in 1930.

War History of Santa Clara County (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from War History of Santa Clara County Santa Clara County's part in the world war. Things in the process of making rarely reveal their true significance. We await completion before measuring values. During the hurry and stress of war-time responsibilities when even the average easy-going citizen was called upon to bear unusual burdens, we did not realize that the activities in which we were engaged constituted the making of history. Time mellows experience and the story of yesterday's fighting on the home line will be painted in softer colors by reason of the interval and the perspective we have gained. With the fifth liberty loan, the victory loan campaign, a thing of the past and its files already dusty, the state, the county and the city awaken to the fact that various war activities were illuminated pages in the great world war history. The fighters in the home trenches had their battles and their victories no less than did the sons of Old Glory who followed the light of its stars overseas. The war that had seemed very far away suddenly came near - so near that the cold steel of the enemy touched warm American hearts. Germany had started it. We suddenly knew that it was up to us to finish it - at whatever cost. On April 6, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson signed the resolution of congress declaring the "existence of a state of war" and asking that all the resources of the United States be "directed to prosecute hostilities against the German government to a successful termination." Resources meant not only men but money - money for the maintenance of our own army and navy, and money to loan our allies against the coming of that "successful termination." We were reminded of what Napoleon once said, that the three essentials to the prosecution of successful warfare were money, money and money." Fifty years ago over three billion dollars was raised to provide for the expenses of the civil war. In 1917 the country's wealth was eight times as great and the banking resources 20 times as great. Whatever America had to do she was able to do. There were two ways of raising the amount needed: Germany's method of taxation or the issuance of bonds. Uncle Sam borrowed, giving his interest bearing promissory note to every man, woman and child who offered him their savings or their wealth. Secretary of the Treasury W. G. McAdoo, on April 10 predicted the amount of the bond issue that would be needed. Then we began to talk of buying government bonds as we might have talked of purchasing a commutation ticket previously. Men talked it over. Bonds. A big issue. Not all at once but as funds were needed. When Uncle Sam asked for a "loan" it meant that real war was ahead. People checked up their savings. More and more flags fluttered out everywhere. The sky was ablaze with them. A new tenseness and seriousness pervaded business circles. Then came the never-to-be-forgotten nation-wide observance of Preparedness Day - on April 12, 1917. More than 10,000 loyal citizens led by City Manager Thomas H. Reed, who was responsible for the day's success, marched through the city's streets while the Stars and Stripes waved above them and bands played Dixie and America - and the thrilling Marseillaise. Thousands of hearts swelling and throats tightening queerly when the flag went by! We began to realize that war encompassed us all. That night, at a great mass meeting in the high school auditorium hundreds unanimously pledged hearts and hands to the country's cause. There we renewed our "allegiance to the flag and to the high principles of liberty, humanity and justice which it represents." On May 3, 1917, the announcement was made that the first offering of bonds authorized under the finance law

Age of Globalization VERSO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The exchange of ideas makes history as surely as the exchange of gunfire. "The Age of Globalization "(previously published as Under Three Flags) is an account of the unlikely connections that made up late nineteenth-century politics and culture. In particular, Benedict Anderson examines the links between militant anarchists in Europe and the Americas and the anti-imperialist uprisings in Cuba, China, and Japan. Told through the complex intellectual interactions of two great Filipino writers--the political novelist Jose Rizal and the pioneering folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes--"The Age of Globalization" is a brilliantly original work on how global networks shaped the nationalist movements of the time.
