One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

by Julie Johnson

#1 BEST SELLER IN HUMOROUS FICTION!

Gemma Summers is unlucky in love.
She’s known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning-afters has done nothing to improve her prospects.
But when a random radio call-in contest lands her courtside tickets to the hottest playoff game of the season, Gemma’s luck may finally be on the upswing — even if it doesn’t exactly seem like it when the dreaded jumbotron kiss-cam lands on her and her date, who’s too busy ignoring her to notice…

BUNKER 1945 - The Last Ten Days of ADOLF HITLER

by Christian Shakespeare

In 1923 during the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, Adolf Hitler threatened to blow his brains out. Twenty-two years later, he did. April 1945 – Berlin. The world had been at war for more than five-and-a-half years – approximately seventy million people were dead across the globe. The epicentre of the twelve-year-old Third Reich was now surrounded, enveloped by bitter Soviet forces hardened by Nazi barbarity in the east over the last four years. As the buildings were blasted into rubble, pounded by Russian guns and bombs, before their troops and tanks, Hitler was hunkered down in his last headquarters – the dark and damp bunker under the Reich Chancellery. As the Third Reich began to crumble as fast as the city’s buildings, what was the state of mind of the tyrant? Only his closest and fan...

Canadian Sniper

by Eric Hilton

Francis Pegahmagabow has long been considered the most prolific killing machine of the First World War as he has been credited with over 378 deaths. This book chronicles his reputation as both a sniper and scout as the Canadian/British Army allowed him to roam freely throughout the "No Man's Land" region of France where he singlehandedly took down German troops.

1914: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and World War I - Part one (A Tale of Two Nations Book 1)

by Melina Druga

“Austria-Hungary considers itself therefore from this moment in a state of war with Servia.” Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and his wife Sophie were shot and killed by Slavic nationalist Gavrilo Princip on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, Bosnia. The event, at first, was of little more than regional interest, but soon it became clear war clouds were enveloping Europe. In Canada, the news was met with excitement and pride. The nation committed to Great Britain 20,000 to 30,000 soldiers within two to three weeks, and there is a surplus of recruits. Meanwhile, in the United States, the government is focused on isolationism and neutrality. Capitalists and newspapers schemed about how Americans could profit from a war, and tourists refused to change thei...

COMM UP: A Marine's Reflections on the Opening of the Iraq War

by AARON Albers

March 19, 2003 and America is on the eve of war. In the Kuwaiti desert, thousands of young Americans and their coalition partners stand ready to start the war against Iraq, if ordered too. Many of them would be facing combat for the first time, and each of them carry their own thoughts and worries, which would change from day to day; the initial drive into Iraq and the early problems in the war, the weather and operational pause to the fall of Baghdad. And then getting home. Now 15 years after his involvement in the invasion, Aaron Albers commemorates the anniversary by sharing his story of a time when he was one of the thousands involved in the drive to Baghdad....

The Grim Mysteries of Nazi Germany: Unique modern and old world war technology

This book is of interest to readers with any level of knowledge about the “plague of the 20th century” - the Nazi Third Reich, which aspired to world domination. Having existed for only twelve years - from 1933 to May 1945 - the Third Reich, however, left behind a lot of great secrets and intractable mysteries, most of which have not been revealed and have not been solved so far.The post-war generations know little about the gigantic military power, the subtle cunning and absolute ruthlessness of Nazism, which our people crushed in a bloody war in the middle of the 20th century: the most terrible war in the history of mankind that killed hundreds of millions.The uniqueness of this book is that the author, on the basis of declassified archival documents, materials of foreign press and h...

The Soldier: The Dennis Polisano Story, a Vietnam Soldier

by Claudette Cleveland

_The Soldier_ is a tender and warm story of a young man, some would say a mere kid, who was sent into the service and then to an unpopular war that was half a world away. He was sent from a close and happy family in an ideal climate to a swamp that was infested with snakes, leeches and bugs of all kinds. That soldier is Vincent Dennis Polisano, who was nicknamed ‘Polly’ by an army sergeant at his first roll call.The story spans this soldier’s life from his beginning to now. It gives us all food for thought as to how the traumatic experiences as a soldier can influence a person’s life. It shows how the service took a young teenager with sparkling eyes of hope and two years later gave us back a young man whose eyes had dulled from the horrors he had seen.Even though this story featur...
