Inspired by Art: Fall of a Giant (The David Chronicles Book 5)

by Uvi Poznansky

Inspired by Art: Fall of a Giant is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the the aftermath of the victory over Goliath. These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscript illustrations inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the first of which is the novel Rise to Power, where she imagines this victory. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a semester-long course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story. This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by moment-by-moment in the story, blow--by-blow, as imagined by various artists: Ghiberti, Gu...

Adolf Hitler: A Captivating Guide to the Life of the Führer of Nazi Germany

Explore the Rise of Adolf HitlerFree History BONUS Inside!Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother, and above all, a time when he was born guiltless, like any other human being. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ...

ALLIED EUROPE CAMPAIGN--1944/1945: TACTICAL MISTAKES (Personal War Experiences)

by C. CARL PEGELS

This book came into being because of my interest in MARKET GARDEN, the largest battle ever fought in the Netherlands, my birth country. I was there during the battle, although I was only 11 years old at the time. Cornelis Ryan, the author of A BRIDGE TOO FAR, a book about the battle called it "The Greatest Battle of the War". Not all may agree with Ryan, but it took three air landing divisions and was the largest air landing of the war even exceeding the air landings at Normandy in June 1944.I quickly realized that the book would also have to cover the prelude and postlude to the MARKET GARDEN battles, and therefore I decided to expand the book to cover all Allied Western Europe operations during the 1941-1945 period.As a result, the book covers the American involvement in World War II fr...

The Etruscans: A Captivating Guide to the Etruscan Civilization of Ancient Italy That Preceded the Roman Republic

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Etruscans, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The importance of the Etruscans can be traced back to Rome though. The Roman Republic, and later the Roman Empire, was an unusual conqueror because it would absorb and assimilate elements of the cultures it dominated. A standing practice was to allow the defeated to continue practicing their culture and religion so long as they paid their taxes on time. Such a procedure was part of why Christianity would seep into the Roman Empire around the 1st century CE, for example. For the Etruscans, this meant they influenced aspects of Roman civilization, one of the most powerful cultures in the history of the Western world.The word “Rome” is Etruscan in origin as are the names of its ...

The End of an Era: Mad Men and the Ordeal of Civility

by James J. O'Meara

AMC’s Mad Men (2007–2015) was an instant hit, winning fifteen Golden Globes and four Emmys and “redefining television.” Already a slew of books have appeared to examine its cultural impact. Now comes The End of an Era: Mad Men and the Ordeal of Civility, bringing to the discussion a unique perspective: race realist and Traditionalist. Drawing in equal measure from Kevin MacDonald and René Guénon, and able to marshal a stunning array of pop culture reference points, James J. O’Meara -- himself a child of the ’60s and a product of America’s long-dead industrial heartland -- examines the hidden agendas and social implications of the Mad Man phenomenon. At its center is a bravura, two-part essay analyzing the disintegration of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency as symbolic...

Genghis Khan: His Life, Death, Conquests, and Legacy (Genghis Khan)

by Patrick Auerbach

What do you remember from your history classes? You may remember a quick discussion laid out about world leaders who dominated by sheer evil. You might be more apt to remember the fictional stories that have been written or worse turned into a movie or TV show. Many of the facts and historical accounts of one man in particular are often blood thirsty, with a drive towards showing how evil one ruler can be, yet provide a sense of awe. This man, this legend—is Genghis Khan. He is not a fictional character who was stopped by China, but rather a real person that conquered all of China and expanded west before his death.

Genghis Khan fascinates us because of his ability to rise from a shunned leader to the most powerful ruler of his time. His intelligence and desires have provid...

The True Story of Philip Johnston and the Navajo Code Talkers

This short story, I read it to my grandchildren in 20 minutes, is both educational and inspiring. In 1896, Philip Johnston, age 4, arrived on the Navajo Reservation with his parents, William and Maggie. He grew up playing with Navajo children, riding his pony to the trading post, going with his father to visit Navajo families among many other activities. In 1901 William brought Navajo leaders to Washington to plead their case to expand the borders of the reservation. Nine-year-old Philip did all the translating and interpreting between the Navajos and President Theodore Roosevelt. Philip eventually took a job as an engineer in California, but returned to the Navajo Reservation at least once a year to visit family and Navajo friends. When the United States entered World War II after ...
