SEASON 1 - In this modern-day twist on Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and only one of the many formidable foes that Ichabod must face to protect not only Sleepy Hollow, but the world. As Ichabod finds himself in 2013’s Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town he no longer recognises and grapples to understand. Teaming up with Lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie, 42, The Good Wife, Shame), a young cop who has her own supernatural experiences, the two embark on a mission to stop the evil that has awoken along with Ichabod and that now is seeping into this once-sleepy town. SEASON 2 - A thrilling, mystery-adventure drama series spanning two and a half centuries, in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane pairs up with a present-day cop to save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil. SEASON 3 - All 18 episodes from the third season of the supernatural police drama starring Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie. When Ichabod Crane (Mison) and the Headless Horseman (Jeremy Owens/Craig Branham) killed each other on the battlefield in 1781, their blood mixed together creating an eternal connection. More than 230 years later the Horseman is resurrected by an occult group rooting for evil and this, in turn, causes Ichabod to rise, his blood feeling the pull of his nemesis. In this series, an ancient demon is released in a shopping mall, Ichabod investigates a mysterious case of two sisters, and Pandora (Shannyn Sossamon) brings back to life a deadly creature with a poisonous sting. The episodes are: 'I, Witness', 'Whispers in the Dark', 'Blood and Fear', 'The Sisters Mills', 'Dead Men Tell No Tales', 'This Red Lady from Caribee', 'The Art of War', 'Novus Ordo Seclorum', 'One Life', 'Incident at Stone Manor', 'Kindred Spirits', 'Sins of the Father', 'Dark Mirror', 'Into the Wild', 'Incommunicado', 'Dawn's Early Light', 'Delaware' and 'Ragnarok'. SEASON 4 - SLEEPY HOLLOW returns for a fourth season full of supernatural creatures, mysterious events and the search for the truth about the lives of the Witnesses, as a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) joins forces with modern-day allies to save the world from supernatural forces and unprecedented evil.
Weather and Warfare dramatically retraces the meteorological forces during battlefield engagements that doomed or saved civilizations. In 1588 more than half of the Spanish Armada, on its way around northern Britain, was destroyed by storms in retreat back to Spain. Napoleon's attack on Russia was stopped cold by winter weather, as was Hitler's siege of Leningrad. In WWI, it was all quiet on the western front during mud season. The miracle at Dunkirk took place under cover of heavy fog, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was launched under cover of Pacific storms and the D-day invasion of Normandy was launched based on the most critical weather forecast in history. 1.

It has been called Robert E. Lee's supreme moment: riding into the Chancellorsville clearing...the mansion itself aflame in the background...his gunpowder-smeared soldiers crowding around him, hats off, cheering wildly.After one of the most audacious gambits of the war, Lee and his men had defeated a foe more than two and half times their size. The Federal commander, "Fighting Joe" Hooker, had boasted days earlier that his plans were perfect - yet his army had crumbled, and Hooker himself had literally been knocked senseless.History would remember the battle of Chancellorsville as "Lee's Greatest Victory."But Confederate fortunes had reached their high tide. Never again would fortune favor Lee the way it did at Chancellorsville - even though the war continued another two years.That Furious Struggle: Chancellorsville and the High Tide of the Confederacy recounts the story of the Army of Northern Virginia's last offensive battlefield victory - a tale of triumph and tragedy that includes that second-bloodiest day of the Civil War; the mortal wounding of one of Confederacy's greatest icons, Stonewall Jackson; and the bold leadership of the man known as "audacity itself."Told in the highly readable style that has become the hallmark of the Emerging Civil War Series, That Furious Struggle contains more than 150 modern and historical photos, outstanding maps, and an insider's perspective of the battlefield as told by historians who intimately know the ground and the battle. 1.

There are many versions of Queen Elizabeth I of England; the beautiful young Tudor Queen courted by all the princes of Europe; a fearless virgin warrior in white velvet, rousing her troops on the battlefield; an irascible old woman in a powdered wig, surrounded by fawning young men. A formidable woman, Elizabeth I ruled alone at a time when Europe was a hotbed of conflict, dominated by empire-seeking Kings with opposing religious beliefs. Inside you will hear about.... Early Years Becoming Queen of England The Matter of Succession Mary Queen of Scots The Last Suitor Trouble in England Mary's Execution The Essex Affair And much more! A shrewd politician, Elizabeth manipulated these Kings using any means necessary, including her own hand in marriage, to transform what had been a small, relatively impoverished half-island nation into one of the greatest powers in the world. "Queen of the Seas", "The Virgin Queen", "Gloriana" and "Good Old Bess", Queen Elizabeth I inspired a cult following during her lifetime that endures to this day. 1. Language: English.

Almost all of us know someone who had been deployed to Vietnam. But most of the veterans don't want to talk about their Vietnam experiences. So, for me, this is the first realistic, packed-with-details account of what daily life was like in Vietnam that I've ever heard. You will enjoy Lost Behind Enemy Lines: A Vietnam Veteran's True Story of Survival and the Revelation of Physical and Spiritual Warfare, a firsthand description of the reality of being in the "infantry boots on the ground" of Danny Clifford, a US Army Ranger Team Leader in Vietnam, on a mission behind enemy lines. Danny Clifford's account of despair turning to hope and ending in a miraculous rescue from a large enemy force in Vietnam will be seen as a parallel to what a Christian experiences when their life is changed and saved by an act of God. In the second half of the book, Clifford paints an explicit picture of the parallels between Earthly military combat and the spiritual battle for their soul that human beings endure every single day of their lives. It's not difficult to imagine Clifford's Ranger Team's extraction by helicopter, with the rescued soldiers hanging on to a rope ladder for dear life far, far above the ground, as the battlefield equivalent of The Rapture - not to mention the vision of Jacob's Ladder. 1.
