Ivan the Terrible: A Captivating Guide to the First Tsar of Russia and His Impact on Russian History

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating life of Ivan the Terrible, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Considering that he has gone down in history as Ivan the Terrible, the first tsar of Russia could hardly have been a Boy Scout. As his name suggests, Ivan had an utterly terrifying presence during his thirty-seven-year-long reign.Ivan's story is not only one of brutality, but it is also a tale of great suffering. It's the story of a little boy whose father died when he was just a toddler; a story of a child whose mother was poisoned when he was only seven years old. This was a boy who had to struggle to survive as the warring nobility threatened, molested, and harassed him endlessly while he tried to protect his only friend—his deaf and mute little brother. This is also the tale of a young man who was desperate for power to defend himself and found it when he was made the tsar. And it's almost the story of a good and capable ruler whose wild temper was soothed by the presence of a tsaritsa who seemed capable of calming the storm that was Ivan's mind; but, sadly, Ivan's beloved first wife was poisoned and died in agony, plunging him into a cauldron of darkness and depression that produced the tyrant that has gone down in history as a monster.In this book, you'll discover his story.In Ivan the Terrible: A Captivating Guide to the First Tsar of Russia and His Impact on Russian History, you will discover topics such asRussia Before the First TsarA Lineage of HeroesThe Birth of an EmperorAssassinationBecoming TerribleThe Coronation of the First TsarAn Ambitious Young RulerBooks and CathedralsDeath in the FamilyBetrayalRevengeThe Failure of the OprichnikiTwo KillingsThe Legacy of Ivan “The Terrible”And much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the history of Ivan the Terrible, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!

Chechnya: The History of the Chechen Republic and the Ongoing Conflict with Russia

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents"There is no people under the sun more vile and deceitful than this one." – Soviet inscription on a statue of 19th century Russian general Aleksey Yermolov in Grozny“Troops assembled villagers and townspeople, loaded them onto trucks – many deportees remembered that they were Studebakers, fresh from Lend-Lease deliveries over the Iranian border – and delivered them at previously designated railheads. ...Those who could not be moved were shot. ...[A] few fighters aside, the entire Chechen and Ingush nations, 496,460 people, were deported from their homeland.” – Norman NaimarkToday, Chechnya is a republic with some degree of autonomy in the contemporary Russian Federation. Its population is just over a million people, and it stretches over an area of 17,000 square kilometers. The majority of Chechnya’s population is comprised of Sunni Muslims, meaning religion has played a key role in the territory’s development. In southwestern Russia, landlocked within 100 kilometers of the Caspian Sea, Chechnya is north of the Caucasian mountains, bordering other North Caucasus provinces such as North Ossetia, and Dagestan, and Georgia. Russia itself is a well-established Slavic, Orthodox Christian country, though its majority Muslim provinces were not obvious to outsiders until the post-Soviet conflicts of the 1990s. The history of the Chechen people in the region is, nevertheless, long-established, and Chechnya has become synonymous with conflict, civil war, and discontent. While many people are aware of that, few understand how things reached that point. The area is complex and fascinating, representing one of the world’s true fault lines in terms of religion, empire, and geography. To understand Chechen history, it is necessary to understand the region’s development, including invasion, settlement, emigration, and the various confrontations and conflicts that have transpired there. Chechnya: The History of the Chechen Republic and the Ongoing Conflict with Russia examines the history of one of the most controversial regions in the world. Along with pictures depicting important people, places, and events, you will learn about Chechnya like never before.

The unique perspectives of the characters in Germany, as well as those in England, were refreshing and charismatic. I am well-versed in the history of the time period, and I must say that very few historical novels of the period are satisfactorily accurate enough for me to enjoy, this book being a rare exception. I was deeply impressed with the characters' viewpoints and the extent of the plot. The author spun such an intricately woven web of intrigue that I didn't want to stop reading. I was transported back in time and enjoyed every minute of it! I loved this novel! It is beautifully written and deeply moving. Although there are some historically accurate details that may disturb a younger audience, I feel that this novel is an essential historical read.

Stalin’s Constitution (Open Access): Soviet Participatory Politics and the Discussion of the 1936 Draft Constitution (Routledge Studies in Modern European History)

by Samantha Lomb

Upon its adoption in December 1936, Soviet leaders hailed the new so-called Stalin Constitution as the most democratic in the world. Scholars have long scoffed at this claim, noting that the mass repression of 1937–1938 that followed rendered it a hollow document. This study does not address these competing claims, but rather focuses on the six-month long popular discussion of the draft Constitution, which preceded its formal adoption in December 1936. Drawing on rich archival sources, this book uses the discussion of the draft 1936 Constitution to examine discourse between the central state leadership and citizens about the new Soviet social contract, which delineated the roles the state and citizens should play in developing socialism. For the central leadership, mobilizing its citizenry in a variety of state building campaigns was the main goal of the discussion of the draft Constitution. However, the goals of the central leadership at times stood in stark contrast with the people’s expressed interpretation of that social contract. Citizens of the USSR focused on securing rights and privileges, often related to improving their daily lives, from the central government.The Open Access version of this book, available at https://doi.org/10.4324/9781315194004, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license.

Ryker (Kings of Korruption MC Book 1)

by Geri Glenn

Charlotte

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna. When her poor choices make us targets of the Devil’s Rejects Motorcycle Club, I grab her and we run like hell. A new city, a new job, a new life. It’s almost perfect – and then I meet Ryker.

He’s gorgeous, rugged and too cocky for his own damned good. But he’s a biker – exactly the type of man I’ve been running from. I have no business getting involved with a man like him. Too bad I can’t get him out of my head.

Ryker

As V.P. of the Kings of Korruption MC, I know all about violence and loss. In my world, getting involved with a woman never turns out well. Avoiding commitment isn’t something I have to work at – it’s just a way of life. Then I meet Charlotte. Drawn to her kindness and beauty, I know there’s no place for her in my world. I have to let her go.

Finding Charlotte battered and bloody late one night, I go against my own beliefs, making it my mission to protect her. The Devils are out for blood and it’s Charlotte’s they want. Maybe I can’t keep her but I will put my life on the line to keep her safe. If not, I face losing the only woman that’s ever made me feel alive.

***Note: This book contains violence, strong language and descriptive sexual situations. It is intended for readers over the age of 18

Most of us are familiar with this infamous nickname, but most fall short of being able to describe how he received such an ominous moniker.

Battle of Stalingrad: A History From Beginning to End (World War 2 Battles Book 1)

by Hourly History

Battle of Stalingrad* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The Battle of Stalingrad, perceived by historians as the most important battle of World War II and regarded by Russians as the most significant battle in their country’s history, cannot be viewed solely as a military engagement between two powerful, long-time foes. The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I’s Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for victory; and it was also a test of wills between Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler, two totalitarian dictators who were willing to do whatever was necessary to demonstrate the supremacy of their systems of government. Inside you will read about...✓ Josef Stalin: Man of Steel ✓ Adolf Hitler: A Quest for Vengeance ✓ Operation Barbarossa ✓ The Stalingrad Street Fighting Academy ✓ The Heroes of Stalingrad And much more!Stalin had succeeded Vladimir Lenin as the leader of the Soviet Union, and his entry upon the world stage ushered in a reign of absolute power as he bent a battered nation to conform to his will. Adolf Hitler, leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, was elected chancellor of Germany in 1933 and promptly turned the beleaguered nation into a launch pad for Aryan domination. As their armies met at Stalingrad for a long and bloody struggle that would ultimately tally two million civilian and military casualties, the world would watch as two brutal regimes challenged one another while the fate of the free world hung in the balance.

A Time to Live (Russian Cross Book 6)

by Alexander Lapin

A Time to Live – this is the title of the final, sixth book of the novel Russian cross. The original novel was conceived as a five-volume edition, and with characters I planned to leave at the turn of the century. But too much remained uncertain in the fate of each character and the internal logic of the narration required to bring the line of characters’ lives before the moment of awareness of each of them of its purpose.No, they do not achieve complete peace and well-being. Life continues to bring them new difficulties that require overcoming, but each of the main characters of the novel in the final comes to understand the need to be here and now, in this place, to do this business, with these people, to love exactly this person and raise common children.And then, despite the difficulties and problems that each new day creates, a clear awareness of the correctness of their path and life goals, strong support in their loved ones and reliability of the rear gives confidence that everything can be overcome. I sincerely wish my readers to get this feeling.

Sputnik I was a polished metal sphere of 23 inches in diameter, with four external radio antennas to broadcast radio pulses. Launched at the 5th Tyuratam range from what is now known as the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the satellite completed each orbit in 96.2 minutes at a speed of about 18,000 miles per hour. Sputnik I transmitted on 20.005 and 40.002 MHz for 21 days until the batteries ran out. After three months, 1440 completed orbits and having travelled a distance of about 43 miles, Sputnik burned up on 4 January 1958 as it re-entered the earth's atmosphere. Sputnik’s success triggered the Space Race, a chapter of the Cold War between the West and the Soviet Union. It provided scientists with valuable information, marking the beginning of a new era of technological and scientific developments.

by Hourly History

World War II Leningrad* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.History describes the 872-day Siege of Leningrad as the most devastating siege in history. The German army had made its way to Leningrad before the city had the opportunity to prepare for an assault and the consequences were lethal. Accompanied by one of the worst famines in history, as well as a brutally cold winter in 1941-1942, the civilians were doomed. Of the three million people living in Leningrad at the start of the siege, more than a million would be evacuated and approximately another million would die before the assault ended in 1944. Inside you will read about...✓ St. Petersburg: The City of Three Revolutions✓ The Fate of Leningrad under Stalin✓ Encircling Leningrad✓ Inside Leningrad✓ The Road of Life✓ The Leningrad AffairAnd much more!During those 872 days, Leningrad was rendered numb as people fell dead in the streets and were not placed in coffins because no one had the strength to bury them. People ate their pets and boiled leather for food; they committed murder to obtain ration cards for the meager provisions that the city could provide; some resorted to cannibalism. Kept alive by their fervent patriotism and an astonishing will to survive, the citizens of Leningrad greeted the end of the siege with jubilation. Although they outlasted the Nazis, they could not defeat Josef Stalin as the paranoid leader punished Leningrad and its prominent Party members and stilled the voices of the heroes who lived. But Leningrad did not remain silenced, and the truth finally emerged. It’s a harrowing saga of bravery and brutality, but one that must be told.

The End of the Third Reich: A New English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov was there at the end, every soldier’s desire. This account of the operations of his army on the Eastern Front from the summer of 1944 until the surrender of Germany is not as dramatic as his history of Stalingrad. As Chuikov himself said, Stalingrad was ‘idiosyncratic.’ No one had ever seen the like and, with a bit of luck, no one will ever see the like again.This book relates many stories, but also contains a fair amount of military science. If the small-town geography of Poland and Ukraine becomes too tedious, skim it.This book can educate those who do not fully appreciate the sacrifice made by Red Army troops in World War II. Russians of the Soviet period almost always failed in their appeals for understanding by painting themselves as universally courageous, kind, etc. etc.; when they weren’t painting themselves as poor and pitiable. In truth, they were neither angelic nor universally victimized. You will find the ‘courageous and kind…’ version here. Chuikov’s propaganda on the benevolent fraternity enjoyed by Russians and Poles is nauseating.Even so, I think the general was an honest man; as honest as he could be under the circumstances. Recall that he survived Stalin’s great purge of the military in the late 1930s. He may have been just the right age; a fish too small to be noticed at the time. However, the warning that a firing squad could be the other end of a piddling mistake—or possibly no mistake at all—could not have been missed. Chuikov became a master at criticizing ambiguously. His little shots at Marshal Zhukov are delightfully crafted.An out-of-print English translation of this book is available, but it is deeply flawed. I’m sure I made a few mistakes, but I hope a better version will be welcomed.

The Vampire's Mail Order Bride: A Light, Funny Paranormal Romance (Nocturne Falls Book 1)

by Kristen Painter

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year.
The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.



After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn’t know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In thirty days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman’s going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.

Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...

Stalingrad Battle of the Century: An English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov offers an authoritative history of the Battle of Stalingrad. After all, he was there. Chuikov's account of the battle was first published in 1962. That book was translated into English and published in the 1965 book, The Battle for Stalingrad. This book, Stalingrad: Battle of the Century, is a translation of Chuikov's 1975 edition, a very different work.There is no doubt that Stalingrad was a turning point in World War II. It was, perhaps, a turning point in human history. Adolf Hitler's psychopathic obsession with conquering the stronghold on the Volga made this an event of more than military significance. Chuikov himself wrote that Stalingrad was 'an objective at which all strategic, tactical, political and aspirational goals coalesced.' Indeed. It was the beginning of the end for the Third Reich. It bolstered the stumbling Soviet Union. We live with the consequences of both. The propaganda you will find in this book is quaint and amusing. You can ignore it. Do not ignore the analysis of a preeminent battlefield commander. Chuikov, perhaps, said more than he intended. This book speaks to the nature of war in great detail. It also has something to say about the human condition.

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everything that happened to her. But how can she do that when everyone thinks she is a liar who is only out for attention? With plot and emotion braided together by a careful hand, this haunted group of people all acting on behalf of their own interests begs the question: How far would you go to protect your own?
