This is a story about hundreds of very young, very brave men who overcame their self-preservation instincts to fight in one of the most costly and fiercely fought aerial engagements in history. It was Mission 115 flown by the 8th U.S. Air Force October 14, 1943 (this was the second raid on Schweinfurt). The objective was to cripple Germany s ball-bearing manufacturing capability, 50 percent of which was believed to be in Schweinfurt. A daytime raid, it included 291 B-17's based in England. Sixty aircraft with 10-man crews were shot down, an additional 5 crashed in England, 12 others were so severely damaged they were scrapped, and 121 were battle damaged. Hundreds of Americans were killed, wounded or imprisoned for the remainder of the war. There were few winners, mostly losers in the air or on the ground. The Mission Commander, Col. Budd Peaslee, and Lead Pilot Captain J. Kemp McLaughlin (now a retired Brigadier General [BG]) sat side-by-side as they led the 291 plane, 30 mile-long, bomber stream. The book includes BG McLaughlin s first- hand descriptions of the mission as only the lead pilot could recount. None of the American crew members would forget the rat-tat-tat sound of their machine guns or the sight of airplanes flown by friends disintegrating or simply blowing up as they flew toward their Schweinfurt target or back to their bases in England. Personal narratives from the men who flew this mission and after-action reports say much about these gut-wrenching experiences, but where, when and how did it all start? Equally important, how did it end; how did once bitter enemies become lifelong friends who do all they can to prevent such carnage in the future?

In the final installment of Sally Christie’s “tantalizing” (New York Daily News) Mistresses of Versailles trilogy, Jeanne Becu, a woman of astounding beauty but humble birth, works her way from the grimy back streets of Paris to the palace of Versailles, where the aging King Louis XV has become a jaded and bitter old philanderer. Jeanne bursts into his life and, as the Comtesse du Barry, quickly becomes his official mistress. “That beastly bourgeois Pompadour was one thing; a common prostitute is quite another kettle of fish.” After decades of suffering the King's endless stream of Royal Favorites, the princesses of the Court have reached a breaking point. Horrified that he would bring the lowborn Comtesse du Barry into the hallowed halls of Versailles, Louis XV’s daughters, led by the indomitable Madame Adelaide, vow eternal enmity and enlist the dauphine Marie Antoinette in their fight against the new mistress. But as tensions rise and the French Revolution draws closer, a prostitute in the palace soon becomes the least of the nobility’s concerns. Told in Christie’s witty and engaging style, the final book in The Mistresses of Versailles trilogy will delight and entrance fans as it once again brings to life the sumptuous and cruel world of eighteenth century Versailles, and France as it approaches irrevocable change.

Free from jail, Lieutenant John Pearce is not free from the smugglers whose boat he stole - they want bloody revenge and are prepared to chase him to the ends of the earth to get it. Granted a commission by William Pitt, Pearce evades his pursuers by undertaking a dangerous mission. As high rebellious ambition turns to bloody disaster, Pearce must extricate himself from peril - along with old flame Amelie Labordiere - and rejoin Admiral Howe's fleet. The danger for the Pelicans is only just beginning, however, as Howe's collision with a French fleet climaxes in one of the greatest battles of the Revolutionary War: the Battle of the Glorious First of June.

Emily Hobhouse, 1860-1926, was one of the first great women of the twentieth century. She was a feminist, a pacifist and an internationalist, and above all a humanitarian. She worked tirelessly for the disadvantaged and, in the case of the South African women and children who were herded into concentration camps by Lord Kitchener, was relentless in expound¬ing their cause. This took great courage. She was deported from Cape Town, and was unable to get legal redress. Emily Hobhouse's young life was spent in a tiny village in east Cornwall where her father was Rector and it was only when he died that she was able to expand her horizons. She was 35 and untrained. She went to Minnesota, USA, to do welfare work for Cornish miners and formed an unfortunate relationship with a man who became Mayor of the town. They planned to marry and live in Mexico. Emily spent a trying time until the engagement was broken off just before the Boer War started. After the war she travelled through the ravaged areas of South Africa and devised a successful scheme of home industries for young girls on isolated farms. Illness forced her to seek refuge in Italy where she remained almost to the beginning of World War I, and began her famous corre-spondence first with J.C. Smuts and then with Isabel Steyn. Her comments on the events of the day show unusual foresight. She was loved by the people of South Africa and admired by those like Mahatma Gandhi who asked for her help. She was a bit of a painter, a writer and an entertainer, and in spite of ill-health travelled easily between countries, even in the midst of the first World War when she went to Germany, and hoped to obtain peace. Returning to Europe after that war Emily Hobhouse put into a place a number of schemes to help the impoverished, but the cry of the children of Leipzig won her particular sympathy, and with the help of the Save the Children Fund and later the South Africans she devised a feeding scheme for them. The South Africans so admired her that they clubbed together to buy her a little house in Cornwall, at St. Ives. Later Emily moved to London where she died, 8th June 1926. Her remains were cremated and the ashes buried at the foot of the memorial for the women and children who died in the Anglo Boer War for whom she had worked so hard. This book contains an outline of Emily Hobhouse's life and work including much new material; official and un-official records of the Concentration Camps set up by Lord Kitchener in the Anglo Boer War; many letters, and correspondence with J.C. Smuts and Isabel Steyn, wife of the ex-President of the Orange Free State.

It’s one thing to know the story of the Bible. It’s another thing to live it. Grounded in carefully selected Scripture, Believe, NKJV is a unique spiritual growth experience that takes you on a journey to think, act, and be more like Jesus. Pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Every believer needs to ask these three questions: What do I believe? What should I do? Who am I becoming? What you believe in your heart will define who you become. God wants you to become like Jesus - it is the most truthful and powerful way to live - and the journey to becoming like Jesus begins by thinking like Jesus. When you study the life of Jesus you will notice a distinct pattern: Jesus faithfully lived in a purposeful way. Jesus compared the Christian life to a vine. He is the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in the vine of Christ, over time you will produce amazing and scrumptious fruit at the end of your branches for all to see and taste. You become like Jesus. Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New King James Version (NKJV) to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through this Bible, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.

Have you been called for God’s purpose? When that happens, you should be aware that something else will occur—attacks. The enemy doesn’t want you to move into your destiny, so he uses any obstacle to keep you from continuing toward the goal. Even people. David’s life demonstrates those dynamics. However, he didn’t let his massive number of attacks deter him but continued to maneuver toward his grand destiny despite the assaults. By studying his examples, we can learn how to recognize that someone is being used by satan as our enemy and how we can emerge victorious and stronger despite the attack. As we move toward our God-ordained destiny, God will use even hard times for our good.

As seen on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly. Carl Higbie was a member of the the Navy Seal team that captured the Butcher of Fallujah, only to later be accused of prisoner abuse. Carl Higbie was on the Navy Seal assault team that captured the most wanted man in the Middle East–the Butcher of Fallujah, Ahmed Hashim Abd Al-Isawi. But instead of receiving the hero's welcome the SEALs deserved, they were charged with prisoner abuse after Al-Isawi alleged they'd beaten him up. Carl Higbie was a witness for their defense at the courts martial. When he went public with his account of what happened, the Navy fought him tooth and nail. But Higbie fought back–and he won.

We pull up to her apartment, and Teddy just walks up like he owns the place. I didnt know what I was getting myself into. I knew she told me her ex was there watching the kids so I was hoping nothing would get started. I was a city boy going to a hick town. I had to come though there was something about this women that had me very intrigued. Well she introduced us and her ex kind of had an attitude. I looked at Teddy and said , He better chill the fuck out before he gets knocked the fuck out. I thought he was a joke. I couldnt understand what she had ever seen in him. She was sexy, sweet, crazy, funny and she had a pretty smile that went with her pretty eyes. She was a character I knew that she was a down chic and I could definitely kick it with her for the weekend. She went and took a shower after laying her kids down. Teddy and I kicked it in the kitchen for a bit and we clowned on Will, her ex. Then she walked out of bathroom in a black silk night gown. It wasnt really revealing, but man. Teddy caught the hint and left us alone in her room. I didnt want to just rush in because she may have been all talk, so we started talking. She laid down on the bed, and I propped myself up and we started conversating. We talked about everything. I felt so at ease with her. I mean I didnt feel like I had anything to hide from her at all. I have never felt this comfortable with a person that I just met ever. My heart was shattered and broken and the more we talked and the more I opened up. I could feel my heart melt.
