Titanic cult armies wage campaigns of galactic conquest in their fanatical search for wealth, dominance, glory, and truth. Forces from two of the largest cults have descended upon a formerly peaceful planet and laid waste to everything before them. Jacobite Knights in battle armor stalk the battlefields looking for insight and glory as multitudes of Synarchist legions destroy everything in their path in a holy mission to kill or convert all of humanity. The city of Parmesh has been ravaged by siege, and all that remains of the defenders is a ragtag brigade of stalwart marines who fight a bitter resistance against the two cult armies. The marines are in a race against time to evacuate the remaining civilian refugees, even as they scavenge for supplies and wage desperate war. Out of the chaos of battle a stranger appears, armed and dangerous and yet hunted by champions of both cults. If this new warrior is friend or foe remains to be seen. There is no choice but to fight on. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Glennon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/080585/bk_acx0_080585_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
The extraordinary career of George Catlett Marshall - America’s most distinguished soldier-statesman since George Washington - whose selfless leadership and moral character influenced the course of two world wars and helped define the American century. ´´Enthralling.” (Andrew Roberts) • ´´Important.” (William I. Hitchcock) • ´´Majestic.” (Susan Page) • ´´Engrossing.” (Andrew J. Bacevich) • ´´Judicious.” (Walter Isaacson) • ´´Powerful.´´ (The Wall Street Journal) • ´´Definitive.” (Kirkus)Winston Churchill called him World War II´s ´´organizer of victory.´´ Harry Truman said he was ´´the greatest military man that this country ever produced.´´ Today, in our era of failed leadership, few lives are more worthy of renewed examination than Marshall and his 50 years of loyal service to the defense of his nation and its values. Even as a young officer he was heralded as a genius, a reputation that grew when in WWI he planned and executed a nighttime movement of more than a half million troops from one battlefield to another that led to the armistice. Between the wars he helped modernize combat training, and re-staffed the US Army´s officer corps with the men who would lead in the next decades. But as WWII loomed, it was the role of army chief of staff in which Marshall´s intellect and backbone were put to the test, when his blind commitment to duty would run up against the realities of Washington politics. Long seen as a stoic, almost statuesque figure, he emerges here as a man both remarkable and deeply human, thanks to newly discovered sources. Set against the backdrop of five major conflicts - two world wars, Palestine, Korea, and the Cold War - Marshall´s education in military, diplomatic, and political power, replete with their nuances and ambiguities, runs parallel with America´s emergence as a global superpower. The result is a defining account o 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Bramhall. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/peng/004558/bk_peng_004558_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Lord Lyon of Normandy had saved William the Conqueror from certain death on the battlefield, yet neither his strength nor his skill could defend him against the defiant beauty the king chose for his wife. Ariana of Cragmere lost her lands and her virtue to the mighty warrior, but the willful beauty swore never to surrender her heart. Saxon countess and Norman knight, Ariana and Lyon were born enemies. And in a land rent asunder by bloody wars and shifting loyalties, they were doomed to misery unless they could vanquish the hatred that divided them - and unite in glorious love. 1.

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning and best-selling author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb, the remarkable story of the Spanish Civil War through the eyes of the reporters, writers, artists, doctors, and nurses who witnessed it. The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) inspired and haunted an extraordinary number of exceptional artists and writers, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Martha Gellhorn, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, and John Dos Passos. The idealism of the cause--defending democracy from fascism at a time when Europe was darkening toward another world war--and the brutality of the conflict drew from them some of their best work: Guernica, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Homage to Catalonia, The Spanish Earth. The war spurred breakthroughs in military and medical technology as well. New aircraft, new weapons, new tactics and strategy all emerged in the intense Spanish conflict. Indiscriminate destruction raining from the sky became a dreaded reality for the first time. Progress also arose from the horror: The doctors and nurses who volunteered to serve with the Spanish defenders devised major advances in battlefield surgery and front-line blood transfusion. In those ways, and in many others, the Spanish Civil War served as a test bed for World War II and for the entire twentieth century. From the life of John James Audubon to the invention of the atomic bomb, listeners have long relied on Richard Rhodes to explain, distill, and dramatize crucial moments in history. Now he takes us onto battlefields and into bomb shelters, into the studios of artists, into the crowded wards of war hospitals, and into the hearts and minds of a rich cast of characters to show how the ideological, aesthetic, and technological developments that emerged in Spain changed the world forever. 1.

Each night, creatures ascend from Baltimore´s sewers, swarming the building and testing the defenses for weaknesses. These aren´t the monstrosities Lance and Cass first encountered years earlier-they´ve evolved. Their laments fill the darkness like a primitive language. A leader has emerged from the hordes, guiding the infected in their assaults on the remaining humans. With opposing factions of survivors attacking them by day, and legions of the nightmarish horrors prowling through the night, Lance and Cass must make an uneasy alliance with The Light´s residents to defend their loved ones.
