Battlefield of the Mind for Kids: Joyce Meyer
Battlefield of the Mind for Kids: Joyce Meyer, Karen Moore
Tenali Ramakrishna is more fondly known as Tenali Rama across India. Although he was employed as a Telugu poet at the court of King Krishnadevaraya, who ruled Vijayanagara from AD 1509 to 1529 and wrote many poems, he is well known for his sense of humor which was conveyed very well in his short stories. His constant interaction with King Krishnadevaraya on day to day matters provides a glimpse into his wisdom. This came to the rescue of his king´s life also, when we saved the king in many critical situations using his timely wit and strategy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Howks.

These tactics were to break the stalemate that had characterized World War I. Advocates of the tank and, above all, speed, it was their ideas which decimated Saddam Husseins forces in the 1990 Gulf War. But among the proponents and practitioners of armored warfare, the brash, bold, arrogant, and eccentric George S. Patton remains the worlds greatest armored commander by the one yardstick that really counts: the battlefield. In 1944-45, Patton´s Third Army raced across Northern Europe, covering more ground and destroying more enemy resources than any other equivalent force in history. Patton is one of Americas most celebrated generals and one of the most famous generals of the 20th century, but his story has its origins in the form of a shy, dyslexic boy who could cry uncontrollably and who viewed his own emotional intelligence as unmanly. Patton was a fascinating, complicated, and controversial man whose life story ranges between genius, folly, and tragedy, with absolute determination the one constant theme. He was also a man constantly on the move, whether it was as an Olympic athlete or as one of the first American soldiers to work with tanks in World War I, but his life´s work truly went toward revolutionizing warfare on and off the battlefield. Between the two World Wars, he wrote at length about mechanized warfare and tactics, and during the Second World War, he worked his way up colorfully, controversially, and capably, all of which made him more conspicuous during the war. Patton´s shocking death just a few months after the war end... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109859/bk_acx0_109859_sample.mp3.

The concise but comprehensive audiobook will keep your kid´s attention all the way to the end. Without question, the most famous battle of the American Civil War took place outside of the small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which happened to be a transportation hub, serving as the center of a wheel with several roads leading out to other Pennsylvanian towns. From July 1 to July 3, Robert E. Lee´s Confederate Army of Northern Virginia tried everything in its power to decisively defeat George Meade´s Union Army of the Potomac, unleashing ferocious assaults that inflicted nearly 50,000 casualties in all. Day 1 of the battle would have been one of the 25 biggest battles of the Civil War itself, and it ended with a tactical Confederate victory. But over the next two days, Lee would try and fail to dislodge the Union army with attacks on both of its flanks during the second day and Pickett´s Charge on the third and final day. Meade´s stout defense held, barely, repulsing each attempted assault, handing the Union a desperately needed victory that ended up being one of the Civil War´s turning points. After the South had lost the war, the importance of Gettysburg as one of the ´´high tide´´ marks of the Confederacy became apparent to everyone, making the battle all the more important in the years after it had been fought. While former Confederate generals cast about for scapegoats, with various officers pointing fingers at Robert E. Lee, James Longstreet, and James Stuart, historians and avid Civil War fans became obsessed with studying and analyzing all the command decisions and army movements during the entire campaign. Despite the saturation of coverage, Americans refuse to grow tired of visiting the battlefield and reliving the biggest battle fought in North America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Gallagher.
