The battle of Stalingrad was the turning point of World War II. The German capture of the city, their encirclement by Soviet forces shortly afterwards, and the hard-fought but futile attempts to relieve them, saw bitter attritional fighting and extremes of human misery inflicted on both sides. The surrender of General Friedrich von Paulus's army left Germany's eastern armies severely weakened, but the Red Army had suffered enormous losses as it overreached itself in trying to exploit its great victory. The war was not over. Germany would continue the fight, and the battles that took place in the winter of 1942/43 would show the tactical and operational skill of Erich von Manstein and the Wehrmacht as they attempted to avert total disaster. In this title, now available in paperback, a renowned expert on warfare on the Eastern Front reveals the often-overlooked German counteroffensive post-Stalingrad, and how it prevented the whole Axis front line from collapsing. Drawing on first-hand accounts, On a Knife's Edge is a story of brilliant generalship, lost opportunities and survival in the harshest theatre of war.

While working on a top-secret research program for the US Department of Defense in the freezing waters off Japan, a leading scientist turns up dead, eaten by a monster shark. US Air Force OSI Special Agent Vin Cooper is hurriedly dispatched to investigate. Cooper, however, has barely begun when he's pulled off the case to look into the death of an old military buddy who died while making a routine parachute jump. Both cases suddenly collide when Cooper finds himself having to parachute out of a plane and into the night-time skies of a hostile Pakistan. His mission: to recover stolen US Defense biological technology. The stakes: to prevent a nuclear war between Pakistan and India that could engulf the world. The problem: Cooper has to jump alongside a soldier he suspects is a killer. In his latest edge-of-the-seat adventure, the clock is ticking down to disaster as Cooper tracks his elusive quarry from the crushing depths of the Japan Trench to the frozen foothills of the Hindu Kush and the humid border regions of Thailand and Burma.

WARNING: CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE DescriptionWhen Julie becomes so mentally ill she can no longer cope in society, she is put in a psychiatric hospital with the support of her friends. Once inside the hospital, Julie faces some terrible challenges; her main issue is trusting those in authority. She had uncontrollable reactions, such as self harming and suicidal behaviours when something is out of control, but with the help of her friends and a doctor she gradually starts to get these under more control. But the world of a Borderline is never an easy ride, and Julie portrays the tribulations that this diagnosis may cause.Julie's journey portrays how difficult a patient's role in the hospital is when the staff are met with a talented, yet troubled young individual. How can they cope with Julie's issues without belittling her or making her feel worse? This book will work to sympathise with those who have had similar experiences in hospital and were unable to vent out their problems. This book will also thrive is teaching mental health staff what is perhaps going through a patient's mind. This book challenges staff to look at their approach and language in the way that they treat patients, particularly those with Borderline Personality Disorder. About the AuthorMichelle Karpus was born in Hertfordshire in 1983. She completed an English degree at Queen Mary, University of London in 2005. In 2007 she completed a Masters Degree in Professional Writing. However, despite the many years she spent studying, she was also battling with a life threatening condition; Borderline Personality Disorder. Borderline is a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behaviour. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and the individual's sense of self-identity.When Michelle was put into a psychiatric hospital for the first time, she was in a critical state. Her self-harming was out of control and her suicidal tendencies made life for her very dangerous. She struggles continually on a day to day basis. In the book On Knife's Edge Michelle portrays her struggle in third person through the eyes of Julie. Some references to people in the story are either fictional or exaggerated.Michelles' struggles did not end in hospital. Her intuitive intelligence made it very hard for the nurses to deal with her. Michelle was met by a complete lack of understanding and compassion. On Knife's Edge challenges the behaviour of professionals into changing both their behaviour and tactics when met with someone with the hardest mental illness to treat; a Borderline.

January 1970, and the final chapter in the Blackwood history appears to have closed with the murder in Cyprus of Lieutenant-Colonel Mike Blackwood, and the subsequent sale of the ancestral home. Disillusioned and grieving for his distinguished father, Lieutenant Ross Blackwood believes there is no future for him in the Corps. The Royal Marines have been reduced in strength, and their role in a modern world, after so splendid a tradition, diminished to policing and paperwork. But Ross remains a Blackwood and a Royal Marine, and the loyalty and dedication of a Blackwood to the Corps sustain him from vicious guerilla warfare in Malaysia through the moral and political minefields of Northern Ireland, where one man's terrorist is another's patriot, to the South Atlantic, and a conflict as bloody as it is unpredictable. And he learns, as every Blackwood has before him, that jungle or moor, insurrection or invasion, mere courage is not enough. Survival and victory balance on the knife edge of destiny.

By the time Special Investigator Vin Cooper arrives at the murder scene–the shark-infested waters off the Japanese coast–there’s little left of the victim to prove that his death wasn’t an accident. That’s what the military wants Cooper to believe, but he isn’t buying it. What kind of top secret project could the military be engaged in that would require the services of a foremost marine biologist and a genetic researcher? The ominous answer lies at the end of a trail of “accidental” deaths and presumed terrorist acts that leads Cooper to the ultimate showdown–with a secret shadow government convinced that its patriotic duty is to kill anyone who opposes it.
