Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Che-Avana is gone, lost long to the Immortals who desperately seek him. Time sleets by, ever strengthening the hand of the Void, bringing ever closer the moment when the Song is broken forever. Far distant from the world that Che-Avana knew as home, Medea, Mother Earth, rages. Every bite of flame and pick axe is a torture to her, every man and woman who walks upon her is an abomination. She wreaks her hatred on those who struggle to survive, unwittingly condemning them to the hardest of lives. Amongst the turmoil two lives entwine unwillingly together, at first driven by the need to survive, but eventually with the understanding that they hold the key to unlocking the greatest secret in the world. And of Che-Avana? He has his own battles to fight against an evil that stalks him through the Everdark.
Download or read book The Combahee River Raid written by Jeff W. Grigg and published by Arcadia Publishing. This book was released on 2014-10-28 with total page 142 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The little-known story of the South Carolina military raid—led by a Union colonel aided by Harriet Tubman—that freed hundreds of slaves. In 1863, the Union was unable to adequately fill its black regiments. In an attempt to remedy that, Col. James Montgomery led a raid up the Combahee River on June 2 to gather recruits and punish the plantations. Aiding him was an expert at freeing slaves—famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The remarkable effort successfully rescued about 750 enslaved men, women, and children. Only one soldier was killed in the action, which marked a strategy shift in the war that took the fight to civilians. This book details the fascinating true story that became a legend.

Download or read book La Debacle written by Emile Zola and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2017-06-22 with total page 592 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "My title speaks not merely of war, but also of the crumbling of a regime and the end of a world." Emile Zola The penultimate novel of the Rougon-Macquart cycle, La Debacle (1892) takes as its subject the dramatic events of the Franco-Prussian War and the Commune of 1870-1. During Zola's lifetime it was the bestselling of all his novels, praised by contemporaries for its epic sweep as well as for itsattention to historical detail. La Debacle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola everwrote. Zola skilfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France. Often compared to War and Peace, La Debacle has been described as a 'seminal' work for all modern depictions ofwar.

Book excerpt: A brilliantly comic satire about a love affair from the visionary, world-class storyteller. Set in 1967, at the peak of the Mao cult, this is the tale of a forbidden love affair between Liu Lian - the bored wife of a military commander - and a young soldier, Wu Dawang. When Liu Lian establishes a rule that Wu Dawang must attend to her needs whenever the household's wooden 'Serve the People!' sign is removed from its usual place, he vows to obey. What follows is both an enthralling love story and a deliciously comic satire on the political and sexual taboos of Mao's regime.
