MANUELA MANUELA 4.6 stars / 8 reviews MANUELA is a story of bravery, romance, patriotism, revolution, and intrigue based on the true life of a fascinating and powerful woman who has been compared to Evita Peron. In no other period did the world change so much as in the early 1800's. Not only was Europe engaged in the Napoleonic wars, but the South American people were fighting for independence from Spain. One of the most important statesmen and military heroes history has ever known emerged out of this period. Simn Bolvar, hailed as The Liberator, emancipated the countries now known as Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Per, and Bolivia. While Bolvar was conquering an area almost five times that of Napoleon's conquests, a woman was by his side whom history has nearly forgotten. Manuela Senz was a member of Bolvar's staff, a colonel in his army during a period when women were frowned on for doing anything other than looking pretty. She faced his greatest challenges with him, and even saved his life. Because she was a soul of intense integrity, she accumulated political enemies who made sure she was written out of the annals of the countries she helped to emancipate. In the many accounts of Bolvar's life, Manuela Senz is sometimes mentioned, but only in passing and then often inaccurately. This is the story of a brave woman, born in scandal, who rose to the heights of political power and who learned to love in a world torn apart by war. This is the love story of Simn Bolvar and Manuela Senz. 2000-11-01 184141
Memories of World War II Memories of World War II 3.8 stars / 8 reviews Memories of World War, II is about war brides and heroes. It tells true stories of life on the home front interwoven with what was happening on the war front. Gasoline, sugar, coffee and shoes were rationed along with over 200 types of food. Automobiles, washing machines, refrigerators, irons, sheets and many other items were not produced until after the war. People gladly accepted rationing and shortages that helped the war effort. Most families had a loved one serving in the military, so they did everything they could to bring an end to the war. There are stories of boys in the air force and the navy, but the book follows the Texas 36th Division throughout the war in Europe. They were the first troops to land on enemy soil--Salerno, Italy. During the first week of battle, 3,497 were killed or wounded. When the war was over May 6, 1945, there were few Texans left in the Texas Division, but there were thousands of boys who went in as replacements that were proud to be adopted Texans. Forty years after the war was over, one adopted Texan from Indiana requested that “Beautiful Texas” be sung at his funeral. Colonel Vincent Lockhart was the Texas 36th Division historian. He checked Memories of World War II for historical accuracy. 2012-04-03 246 760296
The Five Sons of Charlie Gisby: A Family Saga The Five Sons of Charlie Gisby: A Family Saga 3.6 stars / 5 reviews In the third week of June 1859, Charles George Gisby was coaxed, squalling, into this world in the prosperous Victorian seaside resort of Margate. But young Charlie was not born into that prosperity. His birthplace was a house up a narrow lane called Alkali Row, which was then (and still is today) no more than an insignificant gap between the grand facades of the buildings on King Street sweeping down to the harbour. In a lifetime spanning nearly eighty years, Charlie would rise above his humble origins. He would become a fisherman, a shopkeeper and a businessman. He would serve in the defence of his country during the Great War. He would meet and marry two striking women, and suffer the dramatic loss of one of them. And he would father four fine sons, one not so fine and a daughter. His story and the story of his five sons are narrated in this family saga. It is a saga rich in colour and drama. Wars are fought in the course of it. There’s a memorable patriarch. There are untimely, mysterious and tragic deaths. There’s a plane crash and an accidental suicide. And there’s a larger-than-life cad and bounder. Charlie and his sons may have been “ordinary people”. But this is no ordinary saga. 2011-10-29 112 657162
The 1848 Boston Cultivator The 1848 Boston Cultivator 5.0 stars / 3 reviews The bustling port of Boston had much news of interest, from social occasions to fires, crime and shipping. Rampant were diseases such as consumption, cholera, typhoid fever and rabies. Social issues included equal rights for women, prison reform, education, and drug and alcohol abuse. The vital records of births, deaths and marriages are a wonderful resource for family historians. 2013-01-26 654 2139899

Banana Republic - The Rape of Central America Banana Republic - The Rape of Central America 2.7 stars / 3 reviews The story of Central America is a little known story of plunder and pillage by many nations of the world. It is a story of CIA and gunboat diplomacy as practicved by the United States. It is a story of a part of the world which never has known stability and peace.

The location has always created a center of interest for the World's commerce. This is the story of what has happened and what is happening in a volatile part of the world. This is the one you must read. 2012-01-07 284 701552

A Forgotten Royal Family: The Kings and Queens of Hawaii A Forgotten Royal Family: The Kings and Queens of Hawaii 3.0 stars / 1 reviews The Kingdom of Hawaii unified during the period when European colonial powers were nearing their height, and the United States of America was a recently formed power. Trying to create an Independent nation at this point in History was difficult enough, but for Hawaii it was even more of a spectacular feat given that they were one of the world's few non-white nation states. A number of intrigues and tragedies led to the early collapse of the Kingdom which would later become a state of the United States. But at her height the Kingdom of Hawaii had foreign relations with many great powers, in particular with Britain. These links allowed for the formation of the Church of Hawaii, an Anglican Church based on the Church of England. This was later disestablished and now forms a diocese of the Episcopal Church of America. This book seeks to tell the story of the Kingdom of Hawaii through her forgotten Royal Family. Each of her Kings and Queens lives are filled with pathos, and humanity. It is the tale of a Kingdom which was doomed to fall, despite it's myriad achievements. 2013-09-25 25 160624
The Silent Mutiny at Gettysburg The Silent Mutiny at Gettysburg 2.0 stars / 1 reviews The Blue Ridge and the Valley, therefore, were the keys to Lee’s strategy. Once the Confederates crossed the Potomac the Great Valley beckoned, a fertile region that contained a vast quantity of supplies of all kinds. First, everything in the valley had to be cleared up to Chambersburg. Hence, Lee assigned this task to Ewell and his Second Corps. The beauty of General Lee’s invasion plan lay in its deception, its success predicated on the notion that the AOP would not follow the Army of Northern Virginia swiftly into Pennsylvania thus allowing time for the depleted ANV to forage and replenishing itself on the bountiful Pennsylvania farmland. Lee also surmised that if on the other hand, should the AOP follow the ANV into Pennsylvania, the ANV would have enough time to regroup and fight them on a battlefield of its own choosing. Ultimately, he wanted to hit the forward units of the Union army first and have them fall back on the rest of the army causing a rout and a general retreat back to Washington. In the years following the war, 1866 to 1868, the maneuvering north of the ANV and the subsequent failure to deceive the Union army into staying south of the Potomac River in June 1863, never was an issue in Lee’s mind. Unfortunately, Lee expired soon after the war and he never had the time to make an educated evaluation and explain all the mysterious facts surrounding the campaign. In defense of Lee’s apologists, it is important to understand the strength of “Lee’s mystique”, in regards to the General’s pronouncements on literature that critiqued his decisions. Lee’s mystique is defined perfectly by Alan T. Nolan, “Almost all of those who have written about Lee have accepted him entirely on his own terms; whatever he said about events or about himself, his actions and his reasons, is taken as fact. The battle at Gettysburg should not have been fought aggressively by the ANV and offensively based on what Lee's original plans and objectives were for the 1863 invasion and it was by no means a "chance meeting of the two armies". In fact there was no need at all to engage the AOP at Gettysburg. The outcome of which held no strategic consequence or in furthering the Confederacy aims and ambitions, but once the battle was engaged it was not fought effectively by ANV for a myriad of reasons none being too mysterious other than very bad personal decisions made by General Lee and a silent mutiny led by his subordinate Generals who thwarted much of his strategic commands. After the war, Robert E. Lee's long silence was implicit in covering up the mistakes that he made and the dysfunctional command staff he had promoted and brought up north with him that summer of 1863. 2013-09-24 566 54997

From the Ashes of War: The Creation of the Middle East From the Ashes of War: The Creation of the Middle East 0 stars / 0 reviews The different ethnic and religious groups of the Middle East seem to be constantly at war. But how did such artificial states come into existence in the first place? The real story of how the modern Middle East was created has long since been lost in myth and counter-myth. At the heart of the problem is the common misunderstanding that the Sykes-Picot Agreement is the source of today’s troubles. This notorious agreement, made in May 1916 between British expert Sir Mark Sykes and his French counterpart, M. Georges-Picot, carved up the Middle East between the imperial powers and has since become the scapegoat for everything that has gone wrong in the region.But in 1917 Sir Edmund Allenby led the British and Australian troops on a successful military campaign to conquer Jerusalem and Damascus in a victory roll that was one of the most outstanding in recent history. And the campaign rendered most of the Sykes-Picot deal of the previous year redundant. So what really created the Middle East as we know it today? In ‘From the Ashes of War: The Creation of the Middle East’ Christopher Catherwood explores this question, challenging the modern assumption that the 1916 pact is to blame, and instead providing evidence that the military achievements of Western Europe in the First World War were much more crucial to the final reformation of the defeated Ottoman Empire. 'From the Ashes of War: The Creation of the Middle East' is a concise, brilliantly argued historical study that will be essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the modern Middle East. Dr Christopher Catherwood is Emeritus Archives By-Fellow of Churchill College Cambridge, Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and has supervised Cambridge undergraduates in British history at Robinson and Homerton Colleges. He has written many books including ‘His Finest Hour - A Brief Life of Winston Churchill’, ‘A Brief History of the Middle East’, ‘The Balkans in WWII’ and ‘Winston Churchill: The Flawed Genius’.Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books. 2014-05-29 62 61452
