For most Americans, the Gulf War was half way around the world but brought to us Up, Close and Personal via our televisions and radios. Remember riding that smart bomb right through the window on the evening news.? You probably even know someone who wrote letters to a soldier or sailor during Desert Shield and/or Desert Storm. (My pen-pal was in Kansas City and she still warms a spot in my heart.) It was all about oil, right.? Or, was it about protecting the people of Kuwait from the bullies descending out of Iraq.? Or, was it about cleaning out the old rusty weapons from our stockpiles to make room for the new stuff.? Who knows, maybe Sadam didnt sleep well one night and decided to take it out on his neighbor and just happened to do it when President Bush was having a bad hair day. Or, maybe Allies of the Storm lets you ride along with John, a Navy pilot, who gets sent to the Persian Gulf to get past the biases of newscasters, theologians and consultants to the war machine. Johns sole purpose is to get to the bottom of things and report his observations directly back to Washington. John, the Navys answer to Superman (after all, he can fly), still has to deal with his more down to earth human side. Friends, loyalties, duty, romance, observations and daydreams each let you see a little more into what makes John both a superhero and the boy next door. It was about oil, right.? You decide...

The Allied victory in 1945 - though comprehensive - was far from inevitable. By 1942 almost the entire resources of continental Europe were in German hands and Japan had wiped out the western colonial presence in Asia. Democracy appeared to have had its day. In this remarkable study, Richard Overy provides a reinterpretation of the war through an account of the decisive military campaigns that created the astonishing revival in Allied fortunes. He also explores the deeper factors that determined success and failure: industrial stength, fighting ability, the skills of leaders and the moral contrasts between the two sides. Today the modern world is once more in the throes of painful transformation. It is essential to establish why and how the last great war was won. Richard Overy casts a brilliant light on the most important turning-point of the modern age.

With the Allies to Pekin A Tale of the Relief of the Legations

The campaign which ended with the relief of the Pekin Legations is unique in its way, carried on as it was by an army made up of almost all the nationalities of Europe. The quarrel originated in the rising of a mob of ruffians who were known by us under the name of Boxers. The movement spread like wildfire, and soon developed into the wholesale massacre of the missionaries of Northern China. The Empress, seeing the formidable nature of the rising, and hoping to gain by it the expulsion of all foreigners from her dominions, allied herself with the Boxers, besieged the various Legations, and attacked Tientsin, which stands upon the river by which the trade with Pekin is carried on. Admiral Seymour, with a force of little over a thousand men, marched to the relief of the Legations. The railway, however, was cut both before and behind him, and after severe fighting he retired upon a Chinese fortress a few miles from Tientsin, where he maintained himself until he was relieved by another force which had arrived by sea and had destroyed the forts at the mouth of the river. Tientsin itself was captured by the allies after one day_s hard fighting, and the army then advanced to the relief of the Legations. The opposition they met with was trifling in comparison with that which they had encountered at Tientsin, and they arrived at Pekin not a moment too soon. It was found that the Legations had been very hard pressed, some of them having been destroyed by fire. But the garrison had maintained a heroic defence, aided by the native Christians who had escaped the massacre and taken refuge with them, and who had done excellent work in the building and constant repair of the defences, sometimes under the heavy fire of the enemy. The Empress had fled, but negotiations were opened with her and terms of peace were ultimately agreed to.

During 1944 and 1945 the squadrons of 205 Group were launching air attacks from bases in Italy. In many ways their efforts were the same as those of aircrew attached to Bomber Command in Britain, yet conditions for the men were very different. The men fought their war as much against the weather, as against the enemy. The Wimpy, as the Wellington was affectionately known, had been operational when war was declared and five years on their young crews were still taking them into battle. Maurice Lihou joined the RAF in 1939, just before the outbreak of war. He trained as a wireless operator to become aircrew, but found himself working in ground stations. He decided to re-muster as a pilot and completed his training in Canada where he was awarded his wings. He soon became captain of an aircraft and ferried a Wellington to North Africa. He was then posted to Italy and joined No 37 Squadron, becoming involved in various operations to harass the retreating German army.

They’re back! As General Patrick would quickly learn, the evil lurking in the night skies appears not only to be back, but this time something is different and far more sinister. Are these new Gomers here to make peace or to conquer? Is this a new war or merely a continuation of the last one? Did this enemy learn from past mistakes, or is the world now dealing with a new threat? As the Gomer saga continues, the world is facing a newer and far more insidious threat than ever before, and it can only be hoped that we made good use of the few years since the last war. What is certain is that the Gomers now attacking our world are far smarter, and far more ruthless, than anything mankind ever faced before. This new hell exploding in the night must be stopped! But how? As in the first Gomer War, it falls to both General Patrick and President Blanchard to form allegiances around the world, and to amass the necessary and surviving technology to face this new threat. This isn’t a coalition of the willing, but instead a massing of all mankind on a scale unforeseen, even during the last Gomer attacks. Mankind is being forced to fight a desperate battle to the death, and like the last war, this time there can be no second place. For the participants in this war, the hell in the night must be stopped without remorse or mercy. Praise for They Own the Night, The First Gomer Wars: They Own the Night is an all-around good ride. ...readers of hard sci-fi will appreciate it at every level... Meticulously planned and structured, it is clearly the work of an author who thoroughly understands the subject matter. ForeWord Reviews Clarion Review If you like a neat shot of military SF...this book will be hard to put down. blue ink ...this brawny procedural of interplanetary warfare will earn its stars and stripes...

Karen wanted nothing more than to follow in her father’s footsteps and proudly serve as an agent with the FBI. She achieved her goal before her 22nd birthday but quickly learned the glamour of being an agent was very short lived. She made the toughest decision of her career after receiving a case with familiar players. Could she infiltrate a drug ring with her best friend in tow, or would the demands of her job bring an end to their friendship? Karen’s decision would be her last with the bureau; she resigned the position she loved rather than ruin her most important friendship. Her difficult decision left her unsure of her next steps. She landed a role managing security for “The Excelsor”, an exclusive Polo/Golf Club in Boca Raton. It was there she met the love of her life, James Caulfield III, and before their relationship was able to flourish, a tragedy almost ripped them apart. They set out on a dangerous trek to Brazil to solve a murder the police determined a suicide, and they had no idea they would align themselves with their most unlikely ally along the way.
