They say Black Dow´s killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbour, is not about to stand smiling by while he claws his way any higher. The orders have been given and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they´ve brought a lot of sharpened metal with them. Bremer dan Gorst, disgraced master swordsman, has sworn to reclaim his stolen honour on the battlefield. Obsessed with redemption and addicted to violence, he´s far past caring how much blood gets spilled in the attempt. Even if it´s his own. Prince Calder isn´t interested in honour, and still less in getting himself killed. All he wants is power, and he´ll tell any lie, use any trick, and betray any friend to get it. Just as long as he doesn´t have to fight for it himself. Curnden Craw, the last honest man in the North, has gained nothing from a life of warfare but swollen knees and frayed nerves. He hardly even cares who wins any more, he just wants to do the right thing. But can he even tell what that is with the world burning down around him? Over three bloody days of battle, the fate of the North will be decided. But with both sides riddled by intrigues, follies, feuds and petty jealousies, it is unlikely to be the noblest hearts, or even the strongest arms that prevail. Three men. One battle. No Heroes.

Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he´d been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart´s mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father´s death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father´s court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family´s secret history and driven to uncover the truth about this enigmatic, distant man who´d always refused to talk about his war. As he pieces together his father´s past through military archives, letters, and, finally, notes from a memoir his father wrote while in prison, secretly preserved by the officer who defended him, Stewart starts to assemble a dramatic and baffling chain of events. He learns how Dubin, a JAG lawyer attached to Patton´s Third Army and desperate for combat experience, got more than he bargained for when he was ordered to arrest Robert Martin, a wayward OSS officer who, despite his spectacular bravery with the French Resistance, appeared to be acting on orders other than his commanders´. In pursuit of Martin, Dubin and his sergeant are parachuted into Bastogne just as the Battle of the Bulge reaches its apex. Pressed into the leadership of a desperately depleted rifle company, the men are forced to abandon their quest for Martin and his fiery, maddeningly elusive comrade, Gita, as they fight for their lives through carnage and chaos the likes of which Dubin could never have imagined. In reconstructing the terrible events and agonizing choices his father faced on the battlefield, in the courtroom, and in love, Stewart gains a closer understanding of his past, of his father´s character, and of the brutal nature of war itself. 1.

September 1st, 1939. Germany invades Poland in the early morning hours. The Germans employ highly mobile massed tank formations, closely supported by mobile artillery and their air force - the Luftwaffe. The world would come to know this form of warfare as the Blitzkrieg´´. The Germans overwhelm the Polish forces and in a desperate bid to survive the Poles are ordered to mass together near the Romanian border, where they will try to hold out until their allies invade Germany from the west. But then the Soviets launch a surprise attack against the Poles from the East, cutting through their weakly defended border and fulfilling their secret pact with Germany to divide Poland between their two nations.Awakening the Bear had the Soviets overwhelming the Germans with their monster KV and T-34 tanks.

Drei erbarmungslose Kriegs-Actionfilme, die unter die Haut gehen.: In „Coriolanus´´ brillieren Ralph Fiennes („Der englische Patient´´) und Gerard Butler („300´´) in einer hochmodernen 20-Millionen-Dollar-Adaption des gleichnamigen Shakespeare-Klassiker. Der hochmütige, aber vom Volk verstoßene General Coriolanus verbündet sich mit seinem Erzfeind Aufidius und marschieren gegen Rom in der Absicht, die Stadt zu zerstören. „Front Line – Der Krieg ist nie zu Ende´´ zeigt packend und schonungslos wie kaum ein anderes Kriegsdrama den tödlichen Schrecken des Krieges und was er aus Menschen machen kann! Mehr als 14.000 Menschen und 45.000 Schuss Munition wurden für diese schockierende Produktion verwendet! Das aufrüttelnde Kriegs-Epos „Heroes Of War – Assembly´´ über den Krieg in Nordchina im Jahr 1948 beeindruckt mit aufwändigen und unvergesslichen Schlachten und erhielt vollkommen zu Recht 19 Filmpreise. Von den Machern von „Brotherhood´´.
In December 1995, the FDA approved the release of protease inhibitors, the first effective treatment for AIDS. For countless people, the drug offered a reprieve from what had been a death sentence; for others, it was too late. In the United States alone, over 318,000 people had already died from AIDS-related complications - among them the singer Michael Callen and the poet Essex Hemphill. Meticulously researched and evocatively told, Hold Tight Gently is the celebrated historian Martin Duberman’s poignant memorial to those lost to AIDS and to two of the great unsung heroes of the early years of the epidemic. Callen, a white gay Midwesterner who had moved to New York, became a leading figure in the movement to increase awareness of AIDS in the face of willful and homophobic denial under the Reagan administration; Hemphill, an African American gay man, contributed to the black gay and lesbian scene in Washington, D.C., with poetry of searing intensity and introspection. A profound exploration of the intersection of race, sexuality, class, identity, and the politics of AIDS activism beyond ACT UP, Hold Tight Gently captures both a generation struggling to cope with the deadly disease and the extraordinary refusal of two men to give in to despair. 1.
