Five years have passed, and the story begins in a dark period within the Star Watch saga. Captain Jason Reynolds, Omni of the US Space Fleet, along with his now 16-year-old daughter, Mollie, are en route to the Dacci System to attend the memorial service for none other than Boomer, his other daughter. Information on her death had been sketchy at best - an attack by the Sahhrain on Harpaign, during the Goldwon graduation trials. It had been a massacre. The Blues have since declared war on the Sahhrain, and there is a good chance the US Fleet and the Alliance will be dragged into the fray as well. Once on the planet Harpaign, Jason conducts a preliminary investigation - one that soon reveals things are not what they seem. Information is being withheld and clues indicate there is a slim possibility that Boomer did not die on the sandy dunes battlefield of Capital City after all - setting in motion the most riveting, non-stop action Star Watch novel yet. So grab ahold of your multi-guns and affix your enhancement shields, because this is going to be one hell of a wild, rollercoaster ride! 1. Language: English. Narrator: L.J. Ganser.

CASPers - Combat Assault Systems, Personal - are the lords of the future battlefield. The massive mechs were created to give humanity an edge against the rest of the mercenary forces in the Galactic Union.Just like today's tanks, though, massive amounts of armor and weaponry just make the CASPers "hard to kill", not "invulnerable". There are things in the galaxy even stronger than the CASPer, and when humans run up against them, it's up to the human inside to figure out a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.CASPer Alamo includes two new stories by Eric S. Brown and Jason Brannon, loosely recreating the Battles of the Alamo and Isandlwana on a galactic scale. When all seems lost, it's up to the mech operator to save the day! 1. Language: English.

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Battle of Chancellorsvilles, then pay attention... The Battle of Chancellorsville took place in 1863. One hundred and fifty-seven years later, what Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson did on that battlefield in Virginia is still being taught at the United States Military Academy, also known as West Point, and other military schools around the world.This battle, more than any other in the Civil War, cemented these two Southern military leaders as legends and as bold and innovative battlefield commanders. In fact, the battle has come to be called “Lee's Perfect Battle”. Jackson, however, would not live to enjoy the laurels of their victory, but that will be discussed in great detail toward the end of this volume. With their victories at Chancellorsville and at Fredericksburg, which took place immediately afterward, the Confederate Army was able to mount its invasion of the North, which ultimately took them to a small town in Pennsylvania named Gettysburg, but that is a battle for another time.

The storm has come! The Angel's Blessings had faded and Kell and Longo find themselves stranded on a lonely deserted island. The world was facing global destruction in the form of a mighty curse that gave never-ending rain to the planet. It wouldn't be long before the population of the world would be decimated, leaving easy pickings for the demon and its powerful master. Kell has no choice but to contact his long-dead ancestors for guidance. "My Master did not become the great warrior that he is by being soft and indecisive. While he was a man prone to thought and considering, moving slow like a master general on the battlefield, always pondering his next move, he could also be quick as a cobra when needs pressed. But that night on the island, when we were with the Angel of Glory, I saw in Kell a slow and burning anger as the woman in the cistern's mist took the form of our beloved Anna, mocking him, and threatening the world with 99 days and nights of rain, floods, and a slow but very real destruction." 1.

Written with the stunning economy of language for which Michael Knight's work has always been praised, The Typist is a rich and powerful work of historical fiction that expertly chronicles both the politics of the Pacific theater of World War II and the personal relationships borne from the tragedies of warfare. When Francis "Van" Vancleave joins the army in 1944, he expects his term of service to pass uneventfully. His singular talent - typing 95 words per minute - keeps him off the battlefield and in General MacArthur's busy Tokyo headquarters, where his days are filled with paperwork in triplicate and letters of dictation. But little does Van know that the first year of the occupation will prove far more volatile for him than for the US Army. When he's bunked with a troubled combat veteran cum black marketer and recruited to babysit MacArthur's eight-year-old son, Van is suddenly tangled in the complex - and risky - personal lives of his compatriots. As he brushes shoulders with panpan girls and Communists on the streets of Tokyo, Van struggles to uphold his convictions in the face of unexpected conflict - especially the startling news from his war bride, a revelation that threatens Van with a kind of war wound he never anticipated. 1.

When it comes to warfare of the mind, the battlefield is an unweeded garden.... Dusan is a young outsider on Ora, a remote island inhabited by a telepathic species who actively avoid the humans who live far across the ocean. He is effectively "deaf" - unable to communicate mind to mind with his peers. In fact, his people regard him as little better than the feebleminded humans. Shunned and taunted by his own people, he leads a dreary existence...until a chance encounter with a human boy from across the sea changes everything. Together, Dusan and his newfound friend discover that their minds aren't nearly as feeble as they've been led to believe...and that they're the linchpins in a war between the Oran people and their past.
