The Battle for Berlin was the final struggle of World War II in the European theatre, the last offensive against Hitler's Third Reich, which devastated one of Europe's historic capitals and brought an end to the Nazi regime. It lasted more than two weeks across April -- May 1945, and was one of the bloodiest and most pivotal episodes of the war, one which would play a part in determining the shape of international politics for decades to come. THE LAST BATTLE is a story of brutal extremes, of stunning military triumph alongside the stark conditions that the civilians of Berlin experienced in the face of the Allied assault. It is history at its best, a masterful illumination of the effects of war on the lives of individuals, and one of the enduring works on World War II.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE The incredible story of the unlikeliest battle of World War II, when a small group of American soldiers joined forces with German soldiers to fight off fanatical SS troops May, 1945. Hitler is dead, the Third Reich is little more than smoking rubble, and no GI wants to be the last man killed in action against the Nazis. The Last Battle tells the nearly unbelievable story of the unlikeliest battle of the war, when a small group of American tankers, led by Captain Lee, joined forces with German soldiers to fight off fanatical SS troops seeking to capture Castle Itter and execute the stronghold's VIP prisoners. It is a tale of unlikely allies, startling bravery, jittery suspense, and desperate combat between implacable enemies.

By August 1918, the outcome of the Great War was not in doubt: the Allies would win. But what was unclear was how this defeat would play out - would the Germans hold on, prolonging the fighting deep into 1919, with the loss of hundreds of thousands more young lives, or could the war be won in 1918? In The Last Battle, Peter Hart, author of Gallipoli and The Great War, and oral historian at the Imperial War Museum, brings to life the dramatic final weeks of the war, as men fought to secure victory, with survival seemingly only days, or hours away. Drawing on the experience of both generals and ordinary soldiers, and dwelling with equal weight on strategy, tactics and individual experience, this is a powerful and detailed account of history's greatest endgame.

There are many things that you may have put up with, endured, allowed, and permitted that God never ordained. Matthew 16:19 says, I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever you bind, that is, declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be already bound in heaven; and whatsoever you loose on earth, declare lawful, must be what is already loosed in heaven. (Amplified) Wrong relationships can cause these same curses that we have been delivered from to be ushered right back into our lives. Surround yourself with people who will come into agreement with you and celebrate you. We need also to weed out the users and abusers of our finances. Either people who have used you will repent, and try to make it right with you or throw a tantrum, give you a hard-luck story and go right back to usury. You cannot continue to remain in situations that causes you to compromise your integrity, your calling, and put into jeopardy your divine destiny in life. What is Satan using as a bargaining tool in order to gain entrance into your life? Is he using money to gain entrance? Sex? Is he promising you fame? Don't negotiate with him, because you will always lose playing games with the devil. The people who will celebrate you are those who are ordained to be a part of your life and ministry! No one who is invited to your celebration is sad or jealous because you are being blessed. Everyone at your celebration party has brought you a gift, and no one is empty handed. "How to Walk in Manifestation" is a powerful revelation that will change the course of your life.

The sheen of Hollywood''s Rome is blasted away for this gritty, unflinching tale of an unsung commander in Caesar''s Legions. In 52 BCE Gaul, Caesar''s forces lay siege to the barbarian stronghold of Alesia in one of the biggest battles in history; nearby, another barbarian army prepares to attack the Romans from behind, led by the rebel Cammius, who once fought for Rome. Caesar dispatches his greatest general, Caius Rodius, to track through the untamed countryside and bring back the rebel''s head. Who better to hunt Cammius than the man who taught him the very skills he now uses to defy Rome? Torn between duty and friendship, Rodius questions whether the Roman "road of stone and blood" is a path he still wants to follow. Story by Tito Faraci (Diabolik, Spider-Man: The Secret of Glass, The Devil and Captain America) with art by Dan Brereton (Nocturnals, The Punisher, God-Sized Thor, Red Sonja).

The book tells of the Fomorian tribe, a feral warrior tribe of Balor of the Evil Eye. This was a time when Gods walked among us. And these were the Gods of chaos and wild nature. Punctured animal patterns and symbols protect these warriors. They wear no clothing in battle, lest they should hide the figures on their bodies which give them protection from death.With each story, it introduces us to the importance of Lugh Lamhfada, the Morrígan, the Dagda and many more. With every single page highly illustrated with Celtic knotwork threaded through images of deities and nature. With the information drawing on archaeological and historical research, as well as literary and oral sources on Celtic deities and rituals.'A beautifully illustrated retelling of selected myths, well researched in its detail from original manuscript sources. Drawing on a long-established aesthetic tradition, particularly on the stylistic motif of the 'Celtic Knot' that manifests from Insular Art to contemporary graphic novels, Sean Fitzgerald has developed a unique style that is recognisably his own. Bringing together accessible, engaging narrative and distinctive artwork, this book is a wonderful way to connect with the heritage and lore of ancient Ireland.'Dr. Jenny Butler, Writer, Lecturer and leading scholar in Irish contemporary Paganism.This is a beautifully illustrated book. Traditional Celtic art forms threaded through with images from nature are brought to life through the imagination of the artist, Sean Fitzgerald.'Cary Meehan, author of 'The Traveller's Guide To Sacred Ireland'

The classic account of the final offensive against Hitler's Third Reich -- newly in print for the 50th anniversary of VE Day. The Battle for Berlin was the culminating struggle of World War II in the European theater, the last offensive against Hitler's Third Reich, which devastated one of Europe's historic capitals and brought the Nazi leviathan to its downfall. It was also one of the war's bloodiest and most pivotal moments, whose outcome would play a part in determining the complexion of international politics for decades to come. The Last Battle is the compelling account of this final battle, a story of brutal extremes, of stunning military triumph alongside the stark conditions that the civilians of Berlin experienced in the face of the Allied assault. As always, Ryan delves beneath the military and political forces that were dictating events to explore the more immediate questions of survival, where, as the author describes it, "to eat had become more important than to love, to burrow more dignified than to fight, to exist more militarily correct than to win." The Last Battle is the story of ordinary people, both soldiers and civilians, caught up in the despair, frustration, and terror of defeat. It is history at its best, a masterful illumination of the effects of war on the lives of individuals, and one of the enduring works on World War II.
