Featuring the film debut of British screen siren and post-war sex symbol Christine Norden, this Soho-set Brit Noir tells the story of two wartime friends whose civilian lives take very different paths. Featuring Ben Frankel's excellent musical score, Nightbeat is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Don and Andy, two young commando sergeants, are demobilised from the army. Unable to find jobs that suit, they both join the police – where Don does well and is soon promoted, but Andy's rebellious nature makes it hard for him to accept discipline. When he becomes involved with a good-time girl , Andy finds himself on a downward slope which puts both his career and life in jeopardy.

The naval warfare of the last few decades appears dominated by operations of fast missile craft and a wide diversity of other minor vessels in so-called ¿littoral warfare¿. On the contrary, skills and knowledge about anti-submarine warfare on the high seas ¿ a discipline that dominated much of the World War II, and once used to be the reason for existence of large fleets of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and of the Warsaw Pact ¿ appear nearly extinct. Indeed, it seems that no armed conflicts involving this form of naval warfare have been fought for a significant time.As so often, the reality is entirely different. Submarine and anti-submarine warfare remain one of most sophisticated forms of armed conflicts to this day. Unsurprisingly, considering the amount of high-technology equipment necessary for their conduct, they are shrouded behind a thick veil of secrecy.This is why the operations of the sole Argentinean aircraft carrier ¿ ARA 25 de Mayo ¿ during the much-publicised war in the South Atlantic of 1982 remain largely unknown until this very day. It is well-known that the United Kingdom deployed the largest task force its Royal Navy had assembled since the Korean War over 12,000 kilometres away from home. It is well-known that the operations of this task force proved decisive for the outcome of the war: it not only brought the air power that established itself in control of the air space over the battlefield, but also hauled all the troops and supplies necessary to recover the islands that were the core of the dispute. However, the impression created very early during this conflict ¿ and largely maintained until today ¿ is that ARA 25 de Mayo and other elements of the accompanying Task Force 79 of the Argentinean Navy were forced into a hurried withdrawal by the sheer presence of multiple nuclear attack submarines of the Royal Navy.Based on years of research, including extensive investigation into naval operations of both sides of the conflict, ¿A Carrier at Risk¿ is a vibrant and lucid account of a week-long cat-and-mouse game between anti-submarine warfare specialists on board ARA 25 de Mayo, and multiple nuclear attack submarines of the Royal Navy: an entirely unknown, yet crucial aspect of the South Atlantic War.Illustrated by over 100 photographs, maps, and colour profiles, this volume closes one of the major gaps ¿ though also a crucially important affair ¿ in the coverage of this conflict.

Reading Bonhoeffer

Description: Dorothee Soelle once wrote, ''Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the one German theologian who will lead us into the third millennium.'' As we near the end of the first decade of this third millennium, Bonhoeffer continues to inspire new generations as a spiritual guide for their actions on behalf of peace and social justice. This book by Geffrey Kelly provides a critical analysis and reading guide to two of the spiritual classics that are now available in new translations through Fortress Press. Reading Bonhoeffer offers a running commentary of each segment of these popular texts along with discussion questions suitable for the university and seminary classroom as well as parish adult education programs. In a final section of the book, Kelly excerpts and analyzes three significant texts by Bonhoeffer on the need for world peace against the rising militarism and continued glorification of war in Germany and other European nations. Endorsements: Geffrey Kelly fuses personal characteristics that define him--deep sensitivity for spirituality, ecumenical openness and knowledge, the discipline of individual and communal practice of devotion, a sharp eye for contextuality, and his unmistakable Irish passion--and mingles them into this study of two widely acclaimed works by Bonhoeffer. The combination of those elements, and his intimate knowledge of the literature by and on Bonhoeffer, make for a fresh, well-written, and compelling introduction . . . and highlight Dietrich Bonhoeffer's relevance for living in today's context as followers of Christ. --H. Martin Rumscheidt Atlantic School of Theology Halifax, Nova Scotia Reading Bonhoeffer--both vintage Kelly and vintage Bonhoeffer--will serve to introduce yet another generation to this important voice from the church's immediate past. Specialists and those looking for an introduction to Bonhoeffer's faith and witness, as well as the average Christian seeking to grow in faith, will benefit from this text. In this presentation, both Bonhoeffer's and Kelly's passion for Christian discipleship comes through. --H. Gaylon Barker V. P., International Bonhoeffer Society, English Language Section Editor, Theological Education at Finkenwalde, 1935-1937 Geffrey Kelley, a prolific writer in the field of theology and religion, has now provided what I think is his best and most helpful work in spirituality--a work useful for ordinary readers as well as scholars in living their own daily lives.'' --Charles W. Sensel United Methodist Minister Emeritus Board Member, International Bonhoeffer Society, English Language Section About the Contributor(s): Geffrey B. Kelly is Professor of Systematic Theology at La Salle University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Best known for his research and publications on the theology and spirituality of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Kelly is past president of the International Bonhoeffer Society, English Language Section. The present book is the offshoot of his editorial work for the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works English Edition--the new translations and critical editions of the collected writings of Bonhoeffer, which are being published by Fortress Press. Among his recent works on Bonhoeffer are Liberating Faith (2002), The Cost of Moral Leadership (2002), and A Testament to Freedom: (1995).
