An unbeatable enemy. A planet on the brink. And a squad with a taste for revenge. In this incendiary new military science fiction novel, an infantry squad crisscrosses the globe on a search-and-destroy mission against a relentless foe. After cry pilot Maseo Kaytu's white-knuckled victory over the mysterious lampreys at Ayko Base, military command develops new weapons and a new strategy. The updated mission is simple: pinpoint the Hatchery, the "spawn point" of the lampreys, and blast it into a fine powder. Kaytu's battle-tested squad tracks the enemy from remote bases to elegant cities to subterranean caverns, but the lampreys start hitting harder and faster. While the squad is winning battles, Earth is losing the war. When the search for the Hatchery shines a light on Kaytu's insurgent past, he faces a terrible truth. There is no line he won't cross to protect his squad. Then a vicious counterattack teaches him another lesson: you can't save everyone. In the end, all you can do is the job.

Imagine private jets ready for an afternoon flight to New York City for a transcontinental shopping trip...luxury yachts circling the globe awaiting their owner's arrival...fully staffed but rarely visited vacation homes throughout the world. The rich live trouble-free lives of graceful ease. Or do they? In Fables of Fortune, author Richard Watts pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As an advisor to the super-rich, Watts reflects on the reality of wealth and a difficult and heartbreaking lesson: "The wealthiest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least." Through vignettes based on true stories, Fables of Fortune reveals the challenges the super-wealthy face, including marriages based on net worth, interfamily inheritance battles, faux friends, entitled children, alienation, and spiritual depletion. It also challenges listeners to reconsider key life questions of personal value - and discover surprising new answers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks.

We all know about the famous generals and the major battles of the Civil War. But for the soldiers who actually fought, the war was all too real. It was especially traumatic for the thousands of soldiers who ranged in age from 10 to 15. Some young soldiers joined the fray to escape the boredom of farm work or to "set the South straight". Many of them kept diaries and wrote letters home. Through their eyes, we see what life was like on the edge of chaos. Some of their writing describes the gruesome details of forced marches and deaths on the battlefield. Balanced with anecdotes of practical jokes they played on one another and interesting people they met, their stories touch our minds and hearts. Ed Sala's interpretation of this well-documented history brings the Civil War to life in a way that few historians could. These everyday details of the war, told in the straightforward language of the young, provide a moving, unforgettable history lesson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ed Sala.

A western the Tampa Bay Times hailed as "perfect!" "I reckon you don't know who you're talking to, mister. I'm Monte Lyman, and I'm not afraid of anybody, let alone a saddletramp drifting through town. Hell, I wouldn't even waste my time looking at you, except that I can't let folks get the idea that it's healthy to tangle with a Lyman.... All right, boys, go get him!"But the man Lyman was "teaching a lesson" to was no fiddlefoot drifter. He may have looked like one, but he was Jim Dixon, a fast shooting, fast thinking freighter who had come to town alone to scope out its business possibilities. But Dixon's men and wagons weren't far behind and together they made a hard-fighting partnership no man or men could stand against. Lyman had given Dixon a reason to stay, and so had his meeting with Ellen Carter a woman of good breeding and exceptional strength, married to one of the slimiest tinhorn gamblers in the West.Lyman held the entire town of Cottonwood in a grip if fear and everyone paid tribute to him. But not Jim Dixon. He was the only man who dared stand up to this two-bit tyrant, and soon the trails into and out of town were ringing with gunshots and one of the deadliest battles the range had ever seen. Because the only lesson Dixon learned from the midnight beating was that he'd better waste no time lining up his six-guns on Lyman's whole sidewinder crew. Dixon's only fear was that he would have to kill Ellen's husband - and that meant he could never marry her. But Ellen and the women of Cottonwood had their own plan for dealing with the war. Either way Lyman and his men were about to be tagged "fast freight for Boothill." 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dupuy.

Sixteen historians, all members of the Society of Independent Southern Historians, have come together to write this truthful history of America specifically for home-schooled students. Herein is a history that is truthful, concise, yet comprehensive, written especially for students of middle school and high school age and for the parents who provide guidance through the home-school educational approach. The 40 student lessons in this book present 278 years of our history: from the founding of the Jamestown, Virginia, colony to the restoration of a healthy balance in American politics as evidenced by the election of Democrat Grover Cleveland in 1885. Each lesson (or chapter) includes suggestions for student discussion and lists a few resources for further study. The history of how Patriots of the Southern colonies were instrumental in winning our American Revolution and creating our original limited-power federal government is covered. The history of how pioneers of the Southern culture spearheaded the western migration to the Mississippi and beyond is covered.Our Civil War, also known as the War Between the States, was the major event in those 278 years of our history. For that reason, the political sectionalism that tore the country apart is presented in detail. The war itself is covered, but only one lesson reviews major battles. The subsequent political reconstruction is covered in detail, with ample explanation of how the principle of state rights, previously treasured in both the North and the South, was subjugated under a far more powerful federal government following the conquest of the Confederate states.The Society of Independent Southern Historians is a nonprofit educational organization registered in North Carolina and composed of members all across America. Some members are school teachers and college professors, but most have, instead, pursued careers in other fields. Many are retired. All have a passion for the truthful telling 1. Language: English.

This Kind of War is a monumental study of the conflict that began in June 1950. Successive generations of U.S. military officers have considered this book an indispensable part of their education. T. R. Fehrenbach's narrative brings to life the harrowing and bloody battles that were fought up and down the Korean Peninsula. Partly drawn from official records, operations journals, and histories, it is based largely on the compelling personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. Unlike any other work on the Korean War, it provides a clear, panoramic view; sharp insight into the successes and failures of U.S. forces; and a riveting account of fierce clashes between U.N. troops and the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders. The lessons that Colonel Fehrenbach identifies still resonate. Severe peacetime budget cuts after World War II left the U.S. military a shadow of its former self. The terrible lesson of Korea was that to send into action troops trained for nothing but "serving a hitch" in some quiet billet was an almost criminal act. Throwing these ill-trained and poorly equipped troops into the heat of battle resulted in the war's early routs. The United States was simply unprepared for war. As we enter a new century with Americans and North Koreans continuing to face each other across the 38th parallel, we would do well to remember the price we paid during the Korean War. 1.

The Battle of Okinawa was the deadliest campaign of the Pacific during World War II. The Americans had come back from the demoralizing defeat at Pearl Harbor to mount a ferocious attack against the Japanese. To be able to invade Japan, the Americans had to take Okinawa. But the Japanese, determined to defend their homeland and preserve their way of life, would fight to the death against the invaders. As the Army and Marines fought bloody battles to gain Okinawa inch by inch, the Navy was subjected to kamikaze attacks. Inside you will hear about...Revenge for Pearl Harbor Kamikaze: The Divine WindHell’s Own CesspoolFight to the Last Man Ernie Pyle And much more!For almost three months, the Americans and the Japanese contested one another in a battle of endurance that highlighted the courage of the fighting men of both nations. Ultimately, the Japanese lacked the resources of the Americans, and the Americans claimed the island. But the Americans had learned a deadly lesson from the Battle of Okinawa: if the Japanese fought this hard to protect one island, how much harder would they fight to preserve Japan itself, the last vestige of their empire? To save American lives, military leaders decided that they would utilize another, deadlier weapon to bring the Japanese to their knees. The atom bomb and the nuclear age rose from the ashes of the Japanese defeat at Okinawa. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew J. Chandler-Smith.
