World War 2 History: Eyewitness Accounts: Crimes Of The German FBK & SS

by William Myron Price

Eyewitness Accounts: Crimes Of The German FBK & SS…Claim Your FREE Bonuses After the Conclusion!When Heinrich Himmler was appointed as its fourth leader in 1929, the SS consisted of less than three hundred volunteers whose job was to protect Nazi Party speakers. The SS was so short of cash that its members had to provide their own uniforms and fund their own meetings and transport. By the end of World War Two, just sixteen years later, more than one million men had served in the combat arm of the SS alone and the SS controlled almost every aspect of life in Germany and in the occupied parts of Europe and Russia. Members of the SS ran Concentration and Death Camps where millions were murdered. SS combat troops massacred prisoners of war and civilians and SS doctors conducted some of the m...

The Renaissance: A History From Beginning to End (Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Theresa of Avila, William Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Johannes Gutenberg)

by Hourly History

☆ The Renaissance ☆
During the Middle Ages, the nations of Europe forged new identities that moved them away from the lost glory of the Roman Empire into their own ethnicity. The experience of maturation was often clumsy and out of step, an evolutionary process that saw the nation's developing at their own pace as they struggled to replace the protection of Rome with their own home-grown strength. What the nations, once they were ready to be described in that manner, did have was the Roman Catholic Church, which defined itself as the spiritual protector of Christian believers. But the dutiful Christians of the Middle Ages who sought orthodoxy and for the most part obeyed the papal rules underwent a change when the Middle Ages ended. The Renaissance, or rebirth, was a period of ti...

The day before her death, Anne Boleyn remembers a journey that changed her life. She recalls how, as a young girl, she used her wits to secure a place at the prestigious Court of Margaret of Austria, where she soon realised that a woman had to be strong to survive the treachery of Court politics. And she came to understand that she must shape her own destiny if she was to be happy. It is here that she met the young man who would one day make her his Queen. However, loathing his hateful boasting, this girl had plans of her own, and she was determined to impress her ambitious family.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

Marquis de Lafayette: A Life From Beginning to End

If you've studied even a little American history, you'll recall Lafayette as George Washington's right-hand man during the American Revolution.

Yet, here he was, this young man full of idealistic thoughts, ready to help a country set their path on the road to independence. Little did Lafayette know that this would be just the first ride among many that he would take in his lifetime.

Vlad the Impaler: Son of Dracul

Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians. A gruesome genre-bender with perverse humor, based on 15th-century history. Warning: graphic transgressive violence....

War Of The Roses: The Struggle for Supremacy

by Patrick Auerbach

What more could you want from a tale, then what the Wars of the Roses can provide you? It is a tale of supremacy that was fought over 30 years. This story includes death by execution, death in battle, and mysterious deaths that are still unknown today. What makes it all the more fascinating is that it is history. It is not a story written by someone like George Martin and his tale of the Game of Thrones. It is not a TV show about the House of Tudor that has taken liberties with historical accounts. The events of the Wars of the Roses are recorded. The various battles fought by five kings trying to gain supremacy over other men happened. Yes, there are certain details of the battles, the deaths, and assumptions that may not be completely true. Different accounts of certain battles, such as ...

Celts: The Celts - In The - Iron Age. Celtic Origins, History & Mythology - The Druids & Medieval Europe (Enya, Romans, Celtic Gods, History, Xinjiang, Vikings, Saxons Book 1)

by Michael Hector

The Celtic influence started during the Iron Age and continued to survive through the time of the Roman Empire, although it took a considerable dent by this powerful army. It is believed that the Celts were eventually destroyed by Christianity; not that the Christians killed every Celt, but they are believed to have destroyed the druids who were the religious and intellectual leaders of the Celtic people. The druids themselves hold a special place in history; they left absolutely no written record of their existence and seem to have appeared from nowhere. The Celtic traditions and customs have enjoyed resurgences during the medieval period and the 18th and 19th century. In fact, even today there is becoming an increased interest in this ancient way of living.

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Executing Magic in the Modern Era: Criminal Bodies and the Gallows in Popular Medicine (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Owen Davies and Francesca Matteoni

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licenseThis book explores the magical and medical history of executions from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century by looking at the afterlife potency of criminal corpses, the healing activities of the executioner, and the magic of the gallows site. The use of corpses in medicine and magic has been recorded back into antiquity. The lacerated bodies of Roman gladiators were used as a source of curative blood, for instance. In early modern Europe, a great trade opened up in ancient Egyptian mummies and the fat of executed criminals, plundered as medicinal cure-alls. However, this is the first book to consider the demand for the blood of the executed, the desire for human fat, the resort to the hanged man’s hand, and the trade in hanging ro...

Barbara’s book Sans Everything: A case to answer was publicly discredited by a complacent and self-righteous Ministry of Health. However, inspired by her work, staff in other hospitals ‘whistle-blew’ about events they witnessed, which corroborated her allegations. Barbara influenced government policy, to improve psychiatric care and health service complaints procedures, and to establish a hospitals' in...

The bounds of these categories remain a topic of discussion, but Nordic countries have played a vital role in developing this rapidly spreading form of world-wide Christianity.  Until now, research on global Charismatic Christianity has largely overlooked the region.
