The Dancing Bear

‘You don’t want to mind about any of this,’ said the driver, waving a hand at the grey ruins and the greyer dust. ‘In a few days you’ll be so used to it that you’ll like them. Berlin’s a grand place! I’d rather be here than anywhere else in the world, and that’s a fact.’‘No more perceptive portrait of Germany in defeat has been etched in word than Frances Faviell’s first book, The Dancing Bear, which made so powerful an impact upon me that I read it in a single sitting.’ Guy Ramsey, Daily Telegraph‘Berlin during the decisive years from 1946 to 1949. … The prostitution which paid so handsomely; the black market which brought in rich rewards, although it meant that the Berliners had to part with treasured possessions; the night clubs which catered for still base...

Winston Churchill: The Incredible Life And Legacy Of Winston Churchill

by Tom King

The Incredible Life and Legacy of Sir Winston Churchill takes an inside look the man whom many historians consider one of the greatest world leaders in modern history. But was he really that great? Known for countless and memorable quotes, including ones he came to regret saying, we delve into some of the lesser known aspects of Churchill’s life. Surviving a death defying injury before the age of twenty, taking responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of British sailors at the outset of war and befriending a man he loathed, we explore how he went from the trenches of France during the First World War to the conference tables of the Kremlin and the White House during the second world war and beyond.History has been kind to Winston Churchill, yet his many shortcomings have been glossed ov...

Caesar: The Life and Death of Julius Caesar

by Patrick Auerbach

The Life and Death of Julius Caesar is a comprehensive look at the life of this great dictator. From the time he was young and free of his father’s influence Caesar had great ambitions. He constantly worked to better his political position and strove to rise within the Roman systems and obtain political greatness. He was an innovative and inspiring leader, a ruthless military power bent on conquest, as well as a man with a family and people he cares for. We sometimes forget that this great man was still nothing more then a man with a life and family just like us. Our hope is to give you a text that is engaging and informative while allowing you to connect with him on a personal level instead of just seeing his political and military accomplishments.

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974

by Ian Miller

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times...

Mystical Ways of Nazi Germany: Unique modern and old world war technology

by William S. Carson

Mystical Ways of Nazi GermanyUnique modern and old world war technologyThis book is a collection of articles and notes that are united by the theme of mystical research and secret defense. In Nazi Germany in the 30-40 years these issues were given a lot of attention and, perhaps, if the miraculous things turned out to be true, our history would be quite different.Humanity has a funny trait: if we do not know something, then we include fantasy and attribute it to mystical or extraterrestrial traits. So there were reptiloids; so peaceful in general, the religion of voodoo has turned into a continuous uplift of the dead; so Tibetan medicine suddenly became a panacea, although before coming to the region of China people there lived up to 40 years.It is only natural that the Third Reich with it...

Killing America: A 100 Year Murder: Forty Historical Wounds That Bill O'Reilly Didn't Write About

by M King

***50 Page Illustrated Booklet***
By now, most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, have come to realize that something is not quite right in America. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you sense it instinctively.

How can you not sense it? For the first time ever, both the majority of the younger and the older generations of America now believe that future generations will not be as prosperous as their parents’ generation was. And that’s only the economic pessimism. On the social and cultural fronts, how many of us can truly say that we are proud are what our society has degenerated to?

Make no mistake; the America we once knew has indeed been murdered. How did we arrive at this point of perpetual debt, perpetual inflation,...
