When Eagles Dared Excerpt :

When Eagles Dared is a salute to the men and women who participated in World War II and the filmmakers who have immortalised their stories on screen. It tells both the story of the historical events of this first truly 'world war' and of the films that have depicted these events - comparing the cinematic myth with the historical reality - as a guide to history through cinema. When Eagles Dared portrays the people who participated in the war, from the evacuation of the Allied forces from France at Dunkirk through to the battle for Berlin and beyond. Each chapter discusses a theatre of war, an event, a campaign or battle by explaining the historical events as they unfold and then examines how filmmakers have represented them. Chapters discuss the war in the skies (Battle of Britain and The Dam Busters), the sea (Sink the Bismarck! and The Cruel Sea) and the North African desert (The Battle of El Alamein and Tobruk). There are 'special mission' movies including Where Eagles Dare and The Dirty Dozen, classic tales of ingenuity (The Great Escape), valour (Saving Private Ryan), and human endurance (The Bridge on the River Kwai). Offering a unique view of war through the lenses of over 150 diverse films that have shaped our perceptions of the conflict, When Eagles Dared is illustrated with rare stills and posters from this ever popular genre.

This House Has Fallen Excerpt :

To understand Africa, one must understand Nigeria, and few Americans understand Nigeria better than Karl Maier. This House Has Fallen is a bracing and disturbing report on the state of Africa's most populous, potentially richest, and most dangerously dysfunctional nation. Each year, with depressing consistency, Nigeria is declared the most corrupt state in the entire world. Though Nigeria is a nation into which billions of dollars of oil money flow, its per capita income has fallen dramatically in the past two decades. Military coup follows military coup. A bellwether for Africa, it is a country of rising ethnic tensions and falling standards of living, very possibly on the verge of utter collapse -- a collapse that could dramatically overshadow even the massacres in Rwanda. A brilliant piece of reportage and travel writing, This House Has Fallenlooks into the Nigerian abyss and comes away with insight, profound conclusions, and even some hope. Updated with a new preface by the author.

In the bitter winter of a.d. 44, the Roman troops in Britain are impatiently awaiting the arrival of spring so that the campaign to conquer the island can be renewed. But the native Britons are growing more cunning in their resistance, constantly snapping at the heels of the mighty Roman forces. When the most brutal of the native tribesmen, the Druids of the Dark Moon, capture the shipwrecked wife and children of General Plautius, quick action is called for. Two volunteers from the crack Second Legion must venture deep into hostile territory in a desperate attempt to rescue the prisoners.

Rise of the Blademaster Excerpt :

Many years have passed since the dark tide of violent and malevolent creatures spilled into the realm from the ancient portal that should never have been opened. Adamar, an elderly but legendary elven swordsman sent to track the incursion, had found a small frightened girl, Lauriel Valendril, hiding in the shattered remnants of her destroyed elven village. After taking her in as his own, he finds that her traumatic experience creates an unrivaled ambition to learn to protect herself and others, and he begins to train her in the ancient and secretive elven fighting style of the Andulari. Through fierce determination and unrelenting practice, Lauriel unequivocally becomes one of his best students and masters the graceful but deadly technique at a very young age. Hearing murmurs of the ancient evil re-emerging, and sensing that his time to stand and fight has passed, Adamar gives Lauriel a gift that has been hidden from the realm for many ages—Isilmwé, an ancient blade of power, and with it, the responsibility to unlock the true power of the blade and defend the realm. The defenses of the realm quickly fall one by one and together with a wizard, warlock, healer, and fighter, Lauriel pushes forward on a quest to close the portal before all is lost. What began as a pursuit to avenge her family, ultimately turns into a battle for the very survival of the realm—a battle that Lauriel has trained her entire life to fight.
