The Price of Glory by Alistair Horne Pdf

The battle of Verdun lasted ten months. It was a battle in which at least 700,000 men fell, along a front of fifteen miles. Its aim was less to defeat the enemy than bleed him to death and a battleground whose once fertile terrain is even now a haunted wilderness. Alistair Horne's classic work, continuously in print for over fifty years, is a profoundly moving, sympathetic study of the battle and the men who fought there. It shows that Verdun is a key to understanding the First World War to the minds of those who waged it, the traditions that bound them and the world that gave them the opportunity.

The Price for Glory by M. N. Snitz Pdf

Abraham Steinnermann offers two absolutes. One, he is very successful and the youngest bank officer in Western Europe. Two, he is especially skillful, lascivious, and licentious in his debauchery of beautiful women. His social skills with women are cursory, always secondary to his personal fulfillment. He is brash, arrogant, and obtrusively conceited. Intelligent and highly educated, Steinnermann insulates himself behind the periphery of his thinly veiled sanctuary. It is 1942. The evil that washes over others eludes him. "I am safe. Untouchable. Omnipotent. A special example that insures my safety." The iron cell door slams shut behind him. His strength and resolve vanish as does his arrogance and hedonism. His face wrinkles with emotion. His eyes tear. He cringes with the thought of his demise as fires around him singe his soul, and wanton barbarity attempts to leave his ashes to scatter dismissively with the slightest breeze. He is paralyzed with a fear that castrates his heart and purges his soul. He seeks the perceived safety of Destiny, although his intellect can neither portray its effectiveness nor assess its mystery. Twelve singular characters of intrigue enter his life and hold in their grasp Steinnerman's future. The "Gang of Twelve" offer redemption but also pain and suffering. "I choose life! I seek Glory! I follow my Destiny!" So states Abraham Steinnermann, whose legacy becomes the Pantheon for humanity. And so too his story continues.

Who is This King of Glory? by Alvin Boyd Kuhn Pdf

This book reveals that much of Christianity and its beliefs had originated in ancient Egypt rather than the Middle East. The author presents us with how, where and why many spiritual Egyptian beliefs were adopted into Christian form and accepted as "history", as opposed to being carried over in their original mythological form. Kuhn states, "The gospels are not and never were histories. They are now proven to have been cryptic dramas of the spiritual evolution of humanity and of the history of the human soul in its earthly tabernacle of flesh." For Christianity to be expressed in the way it was first intended, as experienced during the first two centuries of its existence, one must first acknowledge its pagan roots. This is too much of a leap for most people, but they have not read this book. The author reveals how things were altered in the third century by the existing priesthood and why.

City of Glory by Beverly Swerling Pdf

Set against the dramatic backdrop of America’s during the War of 1812, Beverly Swerling’s gripping and intricately plotted sequel to the much-loved City of Dreams plunges deep into the crowded streets of old New York. Poised between the Manhattan woods and the sea that is her gateway to the world, the city of 1812 is vibrant but raw, a cauldron where the French accents of Creole pirates mingle with the brogues of Irish seamen, and shipments of rare teas and silks from Canton are sold at raucous Pearl Street auctions. Allegiances are more changeable than the tides, love and lust often indistinguishable, the bonds of country weak compared to the temptation of fabulous riches from the East, and only a few farseeing patriots recognize the need not only to protect the city from the redcoats, but to preserve the fragile Constitutional union forged in 1787. Joyful Patrick Turner, dashing war hero and brilliant surgeon, loses his hand to a British shell, retreats to private life, and hopes to make his fortune in the China trade. To succeed he must run the British blockade; if he fails, he will lose not only a livelihood, but the beautiful Manon, daughter of a Huguenot jeweler who will not accept a pauper as a son-in-law. When stories of a lost treasure and a mysterious diamond draw him into a treacherous maze of deceit and double-cross, and the British set Washington ablaze, Joyful realizes that more than his personal future is at stake. His adversary, Gornt Blakeman, has a lust for power that will not be sated until he claims Joyful’s fiancée as his wife and half a nation as his personal fiefdom. Like the Turners before him, Joyful must choose: his dreams or his country. Swerling’s vividly drawn characters illuminate every aspect of the teeming metropolis: John Jacob Astor, the wealthiest man in America, brings the city’s first Chinese to staff his palatial Broadway mansion; Lucretia Carter, wife of a respectable craftsman, makes ends meet as an abortionist serving New York’s brothels; Thumbless Wu, a mysterious Cantonese stowaway, slinks about on a secret mission; and the bewitching Delight Higgins, proprietress of the town’s finest gambling club, lives in terror of the blackbirding gangs who prey on runaway slaves. They are all here, the butchers and shipwrights, the doctors and scriv-eners, the slum dwellers of Five Points and the money men of the infant stock exchange...conspiring by day and carousing by night, while the women must hide their loyalties and ambitions, their very wills, behind pretty sighs and silken skirts.

The Other Side of Glory by Carl J. Pierson,Lindsay Whalen Pdf

"People often forget the road to greatness is rarely a smooth ride. The Other Side of Glory reminds us of the enormous power of persistence and what can be achieved when a group of young athletes takes the journey and finds that a 'team-first attitude' can navigate the rocky road that leads to the ultimate prize." —Tim Miles, head men's basketball coach, San Jose State University. A compelling story of teamwork and commitment in the competitive world of girls' high school basketball When the Waconia Wildcats embarked on the 2019 season, their motto was simple: FINISH. It was a mandate to follow through on every play at the basket and a promise to address unfinished business from the previous season, when a one-point loss was all that kept them from reaching the state tournament for the first time in school history. The Other Side of Glory is a sensitive and riveting portrait of youth basketball in small-town Minnesota, a world familiar to many but brimming with its own characters, quirks, and challenges. Readers will get to know the players—girls with nicknames like Sauce, Salsa, Raptor, and Snake—as they navigate high school life, struggle to accept their roles on the team, wrestle with self-doubt, and ultimately band together with the goal of vanquishing a 45-year legacy of coming up short. Inspirational and relatable, this is a must-read for athletes, coaches, and parents everywhere.

The Battle of Verdun by Alan Axelrod Pdf

The Great War ate men, machines, and money without mercy or remission. At the end of 1915, the German army chief of staff, Erich von Falkenhayn, believed he knew how to finally kill the beast and win the war. On Christmas day, 1915, Falkenhayn sent a letter to Kaiser Wilhelm II proposing a campaign to demoralize Britain, whose industrial might and maritime power were the foundation of the alliance against Germany, while also knocking France out of the war. He wrote that the “strain on France has reached breaking point …. If we succeed in opening the eyes of her people to the fact that in a military sense they have nothing more to hope for, that breaking point would be reached and England’s best sword knocked out of her hand.” His plan was to attack a single point the French perceived as so vital that they would be compelled “to throw in every man they have.” Falkenhayn concluded: “If they do so, the forces of France will bleed to death” or, as he put it later, the “French army would be bled white.” Falkenhayn’s target of choice was Verdun, a place that, throughout virtually all of the history of Europe, had been a fortress. Located within a loop of the Meuse River, it occupied a strategic blocking position in the Meuse River valley. As recently as the Franco-Prussian War of 1871, Verdun had been the last of the French fortified cities to hold out against the German onslaught. After that war, it had been vastly augmented, so that it was now a circle of detached forts surrounding a central citadel. The town of Verdun itself, also fortified, was likewise encircled by forts distributed in a five-mile radius. The combined massive complex guarded not only passage through the river valley region, but also dominated a key railroad junction leading to points south, southwest, west, and north in France. Along with the related, but separate, Battle of the Somme, Verdun was among the most deadly battles in history. To understand this struggle is to understand all of World War I, including the principal stated motive of Woodrow Wilson for bringing the United States into the “European War” in April 1917. For him, Verdun proved both France’s determination to win at all costs and the likelihood that, without help, it would be defeated nevertheless. The unparalleled barbarity of Verdun, a product of the Old World, convinced the American president that only the principal nation of the New World could finally alter the grim course of human destiny. While many, both in 1916 and in the decades that followed, saw Verdun as a bloody monument to the inescapable futility of war, Wilson saw in it a hope for fighting what he would call a “war to end all wars.”
