The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once more. Into the seething cauldron of Quon Tali - the Empire's heartland - marches the Guard. With their return comes the memory of the Empire - and yet all is not well with the Guard itself. Elements within its elite, the Avowed, have set their sights on far greater power. There are ancient entities who also seek to further their own arcane ends. And what of the swordsman called Traveller who, with his companion Ereko, has gone in search of a confrontation from which none have ever returned? As the Guard prepares to wage war, so Laseen's own generals and mages, the "Old Hands," grow impatient at what they see as her mismanagement of the Empire. But could Laseen have outwitted them all? Could she be using the uprisings to draw out and finally eliminate these last irksome survivors from the days of her illustrious predecessor, Kellanved? 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Banks.

The Strategy Collection: The Art of War, The Pr...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Art of War, The Prince, and The Book of Five Rings are three historical pieces that deal with strategy.  The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise, and each chapter within the treatise is devoted to a distinct aspect of warfare and how that applies to military strategy and tactics. The Art of War remains the most influential strategy text in East Asian warfare and has had a profound influence on East Asian and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy, and beyond.  Machiavelli composed The Prince as a practical guide for ruling an empire. Within his treatise, Machiavelli aims to provide strategies on how to govern a nation, conquest of new territories, and dealing with integration of the peoples of new territories. Machiavelli also lays out his strategy for defense, military, and the qualities a prince should have to govern properly.  The Book of Five Rings is a Japanese text that has been regarded as a treatise on the strategy for winning. The five chapters, "rings", refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life. The Book of Five Rings was known as the holy grail for samurai; it lays out strategy on how to defeat an enemy by using tactics such as throwing them off guard and creating confusion, among other techniques. 1.

The return of the mercenary company the Crimson Guard could not have come at a worse time for the Malazan Empire. Drained by constant warfare, betrayals and rivalries, many see the grip of Empress Laseen weakening. Conquered kingdoms and principalities test their old independence. Into this fermenting civil war on Quon Tali - the empire's homeland - comes the Guard and the ingrained memory of their vow of undying opposition to the existence of the empire. Yet rivalries and betrayals plague the Guard as well - elements of its elite, the Avowed, scheme to open paths to even greater power. Ancient, powerful entities, Ascendants, also seek to exploit all sides to further their own arcane ends. Meanwhile, a swordsman called Traveller and his companion, Ereko, move from one strange encounter to another on a mysterious path that will lead the swordsman to a confrontation from which none has ever returned. As the Crimson Guard gathers itself for its assault on the empire, the empress faces more immediate threats. Feeding her wars has bled dry provincial garrisons across Quon Tali, and now regional nationalists see their chance to break free. Behind their insurrections stand the veteran commanders of Laseen's predecessor, Emperor Kellanved. These powerful generals and mages, the Old Hands, have lost patience with what they see as Laseen's mismanagement and have chosen one of their own to replace her. Yet there are hints that Laseen may be using the uprisings to draw out and finally eliminate these last irksome survivors of her predecessor's rule.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Banks.

Irma Grese: A True Account of the Holocaust's D...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

World War Two, in particular the Holocaust, was responsible for bringing to light some of the most horrifying and unbelievable individuals, none more so than Irma Grese, a female SS guard. Irma was initially stationed at Auschwitz and became one of the most ferocious and formidable women of her time, many would say of all time! This is an account of Irma's life and focuses on the facts around Irma Grese only, based on information provided by the people who knew her best and those who were unlucky enough to have come into contact with her and survived. Who was Irma Grese? Learn about this ruthless young lady, also known as the beautiful beast. An attractive woman with a propensity to kill in unusually high proportions. Discover Irma's surprising background and childhood compared to the mind-set that she developed, and understand how the circumstances in which she found herself would ultimately lead to the actions that made her so fearsome. It is well known that Irma was a member of the German SS guard and worked alongside other female guards; however, here we focus only on Irma, since she was by far the most formidable. Auschwitz in World War Two was a haven in which Irma's bias for murder could be nurtured and allowed to flourish. Encouragement of torture and massacre would have been key to her development. Understand how these elements incorporated with Nazi brainwashing would have been enticing for a young lady who harbored a sadistic mind-set at an impressionable time of her life. 1.

Last Known Position: Katherine Anne Porter Priz...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Most of the nine stories in Last Known Position were written upon James Mathews' return from combat deployment to the Middle East with the D.C. Air National Guard. Life under fire provided the author with both dramatic events and a heightened sense of observation, allowing him to suggest the stress of combat as the driving factor behind extreme yet believable characterization and action. Military experiences and settings cause certain human elements and truisms to emerge more profoundly and dramatically. These stories portray desperate characters driven to make desperate choices. Always on the edge of a dark and unpleasant reality, Mathews' characters survive by embracing fantasy, humor, violence, and sometimes redemption. Each story bears its own brand of hopeless quirkiness. Four teenagers on an army base steal a grenade and are stalked by a parade horse. A drifter returns home to rob the grandparents who raised him. A national guardsman faces a homicidal superior officer in Iraq on the eve of war. An elderly man worries that his wife's new house guests are unrepentant cannibals. Always tense, sometimes ridiculous, and never dull, Last Known Position brings the listener to places unknown before and unforgettable after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alby Heredia.

Letter of Ulysses S. Grant to His Father & Youn...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Although a soldier by profession, I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, and I have never advocated it, except as a means of peace.” (Grant)Here is a gripping, intimate audio encounter with one of the greatest figures in American history. Forget what biased biographers have written, and listen to the man speaking for himself. The public figure we all know at least something about...but the private man, the family man, the father, and son has been hidden to us by the passing of time. This is a true audio treasure. What Grant had to say, so long ago, is oddly relevant, touching, and even inspirational now as it was then, so many generations ago.Geoffrey Giuliano is the author of 32 internationally best-selling books published by the biggest publishers in the world from 1984 until today.

Battle of Monmouth
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Battle of Monmouth was an American Revolutionary War battle fought on June 28, 1778 in New Jersey. The main Continental Army under George Washington attacked the rear of the British Army column commanded by Sir Henry Clinton as they left Monmouth Court House (modern Freehold Borough). Unsteady handling of lead Continental elements under Charles Lee allowed British rear guard commander Charles Cornwallis to seize the initiative, but Washington's timely arrival on the battlefield rallied the Americans along a hilltop hedgerow. Sensing the opportunity to smash the Continentals, Cornwallis pressed his attack and captured the hedgerow in stifling heat. Washington consolidated his troops in a new line on heights behind marshy ground, used his artillery to fix the British in their positions, then brought up a four gun battery under Nathanael Greene on nearby Combs Hill to enfilade the British line, requiring Cornwallis to withdraw. Finally, Washington tried to hit the exhausted British rear guard on both flanks, but darkness forced the end of the engagement.

What is the White Movement image in the mirror of the Soviet, Russian and Western screen? What about the main stereotypes? The author of this book tries to analyze the films' trends and ideology. Although this topic did not have a dominant place in the Soviet cinema, its advocacy role has been very high. With millions of viewers inculcated the need for "revolutionary terror" against the "whites" "white guard swine", "class enemies", "alien elements", etc. Among the few western films dealing with the events of the Russian Civil War and the first post-revolutionary years there has been some kind of stability in the sound cinema: the White movement was portrayed with a distinctly positive, often melodramatic emotional overtones ("Doctor Zhivago", "Nicholas and Alexandra" and others), while the Bolsheviks/Communists (with rare exceptions) were embodied in a purely negative image.
