August, 1942. North Africa. The desert war hangs in the balance. When the commander of the Eighth Army, General Gott, is killed, it's clear that foul play is at work. An impenetrable Axis spy circuit is compromising any hope the Allies have of stemming the Nazi tide. Jack Tanner, recovering from wounds in a Cairo hospital, is astonished to receive a battlefield commission which will propel him into a very different world when he returns to action. Fit once more, he finds himself facing the full onslaught of Rommel's latest offensive. In its aftermath, Tanner and his trusty sidekick Sykes are recruited to work behind the Axis lines in a desperate attempt to fight back. But the murky world of deceit and murder they find themselves in is a million miles away from the certainties of the battlefield. Somehow they must discover who they can trust in the cat-and-mouse world of counter-espionage before it's too late... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saul Reichlin.

With this memoir, he crafts a haunting, humane portrait of one man’s agonizing confrontation with war. With a wife and two children awaiting his return home, the young physician lives through the most turbulent and formative year of his life - and finds himself molded into a true doctor by the raw tragedy of the battlefield.

Rick Shelley’s Federation War trilogy begins with a novel that takes you through the barracks corridors and the trenches of war, bringing the war of the future home with a combination of battlefield action and home-town heroics. For Doug Weintraub of the Buchanan Planetary Commission, it begins with a fuzzy call, quickly cut off. Federation troops have invaded his world. The battle they’ve long feared and tried to avoid is coming. Now it’s time to seek help, to launch a rocket into Q Space, and hope for Second Commonwealth troops to arrive - and soon. Aboard the Starship Victoria, it begins differently. It’s a short, unexpected message on the screen for Sergeant David Spencer of the Royal Marines. New orders - surprising ones - that will send him and his men to an independent frontier world that’s become a new front in the war between the Commonwealth and Federation. Doug Weintraub and David Spencer soon find themselves in unexpected roles - a skilled warrior in the Royal Marines side-by-side with a back-world farmer. They’ll need each other to keep the Federation at bay. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Pabon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/007887/bk_adbl_007887_sample.mp3.

Kinky killers. Exploding speedboats. Two-billion-dollar paternity suits. It’s love Voltarian-style...and planet Earth is feeling the heat. Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller will go to any length to protect his beloved Countess Krak. He’ll race up the Eastern Seaboard pursued by the entire Coast Guard. He'll smash boats, he’ll set off bombs, he’ll fight off every paternity suit that comes his way. But Apparatus Officer Soltan Gris is just as determined to put the Countess out of commission - for good - and he’s found the perfect hit man for the job. Well, almost perfect. This particular Torpedo has one little kink. He takes a bit of an unhealthy interest in his victims...after he kills them. And as if Gris didn’t have enough on his plate, wedding bells are ringing. The Voltarian stud is about to tie the knot - with two women! Yes, love is a battlefield. But in this warped war of twisted desires, perverse passions and unholy alliances - the entire Mission Earth enterprise could soon morph into a truly decadent Death Quest.“Remember how you felt the first time you saw Star Wars?
