Tutanchamun und die Tochter des Mondes (German Edition) by Monika Mangal 4.7 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

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 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.
