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.

Ari Loves Salome by Joseph E Trainor 2.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 9 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), ...

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 ...

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.
