Ägypten im späten vierzehnten Jahrhundert vor Christus: Der zehnjährige Tutanchaton ist gerade zum neuen König gekrönt worden. Er ist der Hoffnungsträger seines Landes, doch für ihn bringt die Königswürde, nach der es ihm nicht verlangt hat, den völligen Verlust seiner persönlichen Freiheit mit sich. Schlimmer noch, sie treibt einen Keil zwischen ihn und Sitiah, die junge Tochter des Mannes, den er selbst zum Königssohn von Kusch ernennt, und der daraufhin mit seiner Familie ins ferne Nubien zieht.

The Vikings: Conquerors of the World by Conrad Bauer (Maplewood Publishing) 1.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Were the Vikings barbarian raiders as they are often said to be or more? Discover the true story of the Vikings and their legacies to the World! Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! Vikings. Even in the modern day, the very word conjures up the image of bearded, bloodthirsty men clad in chainmail and wielding battle-axes, hewing apart anyone who stood in the way of their pillaging and plundering.

This was a period where the Nordic peoples enjoyed a significant military, economic, mercantile and population expansion. Enabled by their advanced seafaring skills and longships, many Vikings left Scandinavia and sailed to Britain, Ireland and other parts of Europe. At times their presence extended into the ...

Ari Loves Salome by Joseph E Trainor 2.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

We all want to believe that Moses (Akhenaten) was left in a basket by a river, or that Jesus (Aristobulus) was born in a manger. The reality is that major characters in the Bible were almost universally royalty. The story of the historical Jesus (Aristobulus of Chalcis) and his wife (Salome Agrippa aka Mary Magdalene) and their children, Ari Loves Salome is a fascinating tale of 1st Century life in the Judaic regions of the Roman Empire. Though doubted by many, Aristobulus' marriage to Salome and rise to the northern Israel kingship carried great expectations of Messiah-ship, and the trials and tribulations of Ari, Salome, James, Paul and other contemporaneous relatives provide delicious drama. Most of the New Testament characters are grandchildren and great-grandchildren of King Herod, and Ari Loves Salome reveals the conflicts they faced when having to choose between serving the Romans and representing their Judaic brethren. The story begins with the birth of Aristobulus (Jesus), ...

The Swiss Guard is a personal security detail that has been in the service of the Vatican for over 500 years.

King Kong Down by Aaron Elson (Chi Chi Press) 3.4 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

The Kassel Mission bombing raid of Sept. 27, 1944, was one of World War II's most spectacular air battles. Thirty-five B-24s of the 445th Bomb Group flew off course, lost their fighter protection, and were ambushed by as many as 150 German fighter planes. Jim Baynham was a 19-year-old pilot from Texarkana, Texas. John Ray Lemons of Dallas was a waist gunner in his crew. Their Liberator was among the first ones hit. The two men bailed out, Baynham becoming a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft I and Lemons in Stalag Luft IV. The 445th Bomb Group lost 25 planes in the furious battle. Many German fighter planes were shot down as well. More than 40 years later a monument was built in Germany with the names of all the Americans and all the Germans who died in the battle. Oral historian Aaron Elson took an interest in the battle when he visited a nearby village and learned of the monument. He since has interviewed many survivors of the battle, and is a member of the board of the Kassel ...

A Place To Be Killed: Tourism Alert Thailand by D. Farang 3.7 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

A tourist dies tragically and unnecessarily in Thailand of unnatural causes almost every day and for Australians in particular, "The Land of Smiles" (which becomes an oxymoron for the victim's families) is the deadliest destination of them all. But why should you care? Because it may be someone you know that suffers a tragedy there next, or God forbid someone close to you or yourself. I know a mother in Australia who had to go with her husband and two children to Thailand in order to pick up her 24 year old daughter in a body bag. Needless to say the family will never return to the country. With the world her oyster, the quickly rising young business executive died on a motorcycle in Phuket, hit by a Thai man going the wrong way on the road. But that's fairly normal in Thailand - for motorcycles, cars and trucks to drive in the opposite direction from everyone else.

The Great Boer War by Arthur Conan Doyle (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.7 Stars (116 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

"The Great Boer War" is a book written by Arthur Conan Doyle first published on 23 october 1900. Arthur Conan Doyle made his reputation as a novelist, but far stranger than fiction is the creator of Sherlock Holmes' tale of the Boer War in South Africa. The then 40-year-old novelist wanted to see the war first hand as a soldier, but the Victorian army balked at having a popular author wielding a pen in its ranks. The army did accept him as a doctor and Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work with a field hospital in Bloemfontein. Doyle's vivid account of the battles is in part thanks to the eye-witness accounts he got from his patients. Doyle has thoroughly mastered the details of the campaign, and presents them in a form that can be easily understood. Furthermore, his descriptions of the various engagements are masterpieces of graphic writing. It is interesting and entertaining when a great novelist turns to telling great history.

From the History Shorts series comes a new ebook on King Edward IV. Edward IV is not the most famous of English kings, but he sits on the periphery of some of the most famous events in English history. He ruled over England during part of the Wars of the Roses, his brother was the infamous King Richard III, who was rumoured to have murdered his nephews, and it was Edward IV's sons who were the reportedly murdered nephews! More recently you may have come across his name through the TV adaptation of Philippa Gregory's Wars of the Roses novelizations, including one entitled "The White Queen" about Edward IV's wife and queen, Elizabeth Woodville. While Edward IV was married to his wife, Elizabeth, until his death, it didn't stop him from having a string of mistresses, and it is this that Edward IV is probably most famous for. His reputation as a womaniser was reknowned even in his day, and Edward fathered more than his fair share of illegitimate children, along with fathering 10 ...

'A revealing and well-researched insight into the origins of the legend and its traditional influences.' - Robert White, chairman of the Worldwide Robin Hood Society We all have an idea of Robin Hood, England's most famous outlaw: a handsome and hooded woodsman in Lincoln green emerges from the crowd, effortlessly looses his bow at his target and splits another arrow in two to the astonishment of the spectators. We can imagine Robin Hood, but why, and where have our ideas of the man actually come from? What is most surprising about the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men is how much his tales have deviated since they were first conceived. We start almost a thousand years ago with a group of bandits, comical and criminal in equal measure, who despised the Church, kidnapped strangers and waged war on lords and landowners, but astonishingly, and perhaps inexplicably, Robin was destined for greater things.

All our beast fables from Aesop and the Buddhist ?Jataka Tales? through La Fontaine to Uncle Remus owe this strange, shape-shifting 'book' a huge debt. In its original Arabic format, ?Kalila and Dimna? (?The Panchatantra? being its Sanskrit precursor), ostensibly constitutes a handbook for rulers, a so-called 'Mirror for Princes' illustrating indirectly, through a cascade of teaching stories and verse, how to (and how not to!) run the kingdom of your life.

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. The story of the United States Army is always growing and changing. Historians constantly seek to reinterpret the past while accumulating new facts as America's Army continues to be challenged on new foreign battlefields.

American Military History provides a comprehensive but brief account of Army's past. The history of an active organization tends to expand rapidly as the organization grows larger and more complex. The first volume covers the Army's history from its birth in 1775 to the eve of World War I. The second volume of this edition takes up that story and extends it into the twenty-first century and the early years of the war on terrorism.
