обложка книги Tears of Abraham Tears of Abraham

The first Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in American history—but the second civil war is worse.

When Texas secedes from the Union, Henry and Suzanne Wilkins are as broken as the rest of America. They are breaking up, hurting, and longing for a way to make it right. Then Henry’s clandestine counter-terror unit is ambushed and they must get home, crossing the bleeding country, hunted by the relentless and powerful Directors who will stop at nothing to prevent him from revealing the conspiracy that triggered the war. From the snow-swept slopes of the Rocky Mountains, to mangrove swamps deep in the Everglades back-country, Henry and Suzanne must protect what they love, facing terrible truths about themselves and those they trusted most.

They are America—flawed and betrayed—but worth fighting for.

New York Times Bestseller and Hugo Award Winning legend David Brin says…

Tears of Abraham is an action-packed page turner, that’s also thoughtful about loyalty, honor, courage and what it takes to be American, especially when the chips are down. Those chips tumble as the U.S. spirals into a violent new phase of our recurring civil war—a fate we can avoid, helped by warnings like this one.”

Thriller powerhouse Steve Konkoly raves…

“With Tears of Abraham, Sean T. Smith delvers a frightening look at a nation torn apart by a not so distant civil war. In classic Smith style, the conflict unfolds on a deeply personal level, delivering a gut punch of authentic military style action, sleek conspiracy undertones and gripping family drama. I was hooked from the start by this uniquely dystopian military thriller.”

Berlin 1942 – when Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do.

But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

обложка книги The Complete Navarone The Complete Navarone

The Guns of Navarone and its three sequels, in which the same characters are sent on other wartime missions, together in one volume for the first time to mark the 50th anniversary of the original book.


THE GUNS OF NAVARONE

Mallory, Miller and Andrea are united into a lethally effective team. Their mission: to silence the impregnable guns set in the tall cliffs of Navarone. On their success or failure rests one of the most critical offensives of the Second World War.


FORCE 10 FROM NAVARONE

Almost before the last echoes of the famous guns have died away, the three Navarone heroes are parachuted into war-torn Yugoslavia to rescue a division of partisans and fulfil a secret mission, so deadly that it must be hidden even from their own allies.


STORM FORCE FROM NAVARONE

The surviving commandos are sent on a perilous journey through the Pyrenees to disable the greatest threat to the impending D-Day landings: the 'Werwolf' U-boats. But their Basque guides declare it mission impossible — D-Day is less than six days away.


THUNDERBOLT FROM NAVARONE

Summoned back to Naval HQ, Mallory, Miller and Andrea are given a final assignment: to reconnoitre the Greek island of Kynthos and destroy the German facilities developing the lethal V3 weapon. A rocket expert is to accompany them — but can he be trusted not to turn the operation into a suicide mission?

AND SO IT BEGINS…

In the United States, the Department of Defense and the NSA computer networks have been hacked. A nuclear-armed CIA drone has lost all flight control. North Korea… Iran… Russia… and soon the gates of Hell will open.


DEFCON 1—FULL SCALE NUCLEAR WAR

Humanity’s most terrifying nightmare has become reality. Bombs are detonated, missiles are launched, counterstrikes are ordered, and within minutes, untold thousands of megatons have left countless millions dead or dying. Devastation of biblical proportions has fallen over the land… and the USA has been hit the hardest.


NOW THE SURVIVORS ARE ON THEIR OWN…

The death toll is incalculable. Following the devastation, there is no law, no power, no communication. But there are survivors. And now the real battle begins, on the ground, hand to hand, person to person. Can those who remain survive long enough to rebuild a world… or will it just take a little longer for them to die?

“Leaves you breathless.”

—Marc Cameron, bestselling author of National Security and Day Zero

“Like a nuclear reactor, this story heats up fast!”

When the Russians come, where do you go?

It is the end of April, 1945 in a small village in eastern Germany. The front is coming closer and ten-year-old Fritz knows that the Soviet Army’s invasion of his family’s home can be only a few days away. Grandpa Karl, a Nazi sympathizer, takes Fritz into the forest that surrounds the family farm to show him a secret. Under a tall pine tree, Grandpa Karl has dug a pit and covered it with branches. The hole is to hide Fritz’s sister, mother, and grandmother when the Russians invade their village. Grandpa Karl is convinced that he and Fritz will defend to the death the Friedrich family.

But when the Russian soldiers arrive, Fritz, his sister, and his mother find themselves alone. They look to Lech, a Polish farmhand, for help, but new communist policies force them off their farm and into the role of refugees. Separated from his home and eventually his family, Fritz has to find his own way in a crumbling world. The Dog in the Wood tells a dramatic story of loss and survival in a changing Germany at the end of World War II.

обложка книги The Flowers of War The Flowers of War

It is December 1937 and the Japanese Imperial Army has just entered Nanking. Unable to reach the Safety Zone in Pokou, a group of schoolgirls are hiding out in the compound of the St. Mary Magdalene mission. They are looked after by Father Engelmann, an American priest who has made China his home for many years. The church is supposed to be neutral ground in the war between China and Japan, but eyewitness reports from the outside make it clear the Japanese are not obeying the international rules of engagement. As the soldiers pour through the streets of Nanking, committing unspeakable atrocities on civilians, thirteen Chinese courtesans from a nearby brothel climb over the church compound's walls seeking refuge. Their presence further jeopardizes the children's safety and what happens next will change all of their lives.

A haunting, passionate story inspired by true life events during the Nanking Massacre, this novel shows how war challenges our prejudices and that love can flourish amidst death and destruction. The Flowers of War is an unforgettable journey through the depths of the human heart.

Review

“I have long been a fan of Geling Yan’s fiction for its power to disturb us out of our ordinary worlds… The Flowers of War is [a] riveting tale that touches us at the center of our being.”

— Amy Tan, New York Times bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club

“I will never forget some of the characters in this short novel for their amazing acceptance of their destiny and their dignity throughout. That [Yan] was able to convey this with so much authority, yet so simply, is testament to [her] splendid talent.”

обложка книги The Frozen Hours The Frozen Hours

The master of military historical fiction turns his discerning eye to the Korean War in this riveting new novel, which tells the dramatic story of the Americans and the Chinese who squared off in one of the deadliest campaigns in the annals of combat: the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, also known as Frozen Chosin.

June 1950. The North Korean army invades South Korea, intent on uniting the country under Communist rule. In response, the United States mobilizes a force to defend the overmatched South Korean troops, and together they drive the North Koreans back to their border with China.

But several hundred thousand Chinese troops have entered Korea, laying massive traps for the Allies. In November 1950, the Chinese spring those traps. Allied forces, already battling stunningly cold weather, find themselves caught completely off guard as the Chinese advance around the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. A force that once stood on the precipice of victory now finds itself on the brink of annihilation. Assured by General Douglas MacArthur that they would be home by Christmas, the soldiers and Marines fight for their lives against the most brutal weather conditions imaginable—and an enemy that outnumbers them more than six to one.

The Frozen Hours tells the story of Frozen Chosin from multiple points of view: Oliver P. Smith, the commanding general of the American 1st Marine Division, who famously redefined defeat as “advancing in a different direction”; Marine Private Pete Riley, a World War II veteran who now faces the greatest fight of his life; and the Chinese commander Sung Shi-Lun, charged with destroying the Americans he has so completely surrounded, ever aware that above him, Chairman Mao Tse-Tung watches his every move.

Written with the propulsive force Shaara brings to all his novels of combat and courage, The Frozen Hours transports us to the critical moment in the history of America’s “Forgotten War,” when the fate of the Korean peninsula lay in the hands of a brave band of brothers battling both the elements and a determined, implacable foe.

обложка книги The German Peace The German Peace

The ultimate alternative history. World War II never happens. The German Army defeats the Allies at Dunkirk, after which it occupies France. Germany now controls a vast swathe of Europe. An unexpected event then changes the course of history forever. This book is also an indictment of the world's weak, incompetent or corrupt ruling elites.

обложка книги The Hunters The Hunters

Captain Cleve Connell has already made a name for himself among pilots when he arrives in Korea during the war there to fly the newly operational F-86 fighters against the Soviet MIGs. His goal, like that of every fighter pilot, is to chalk up enough kills to become an ace.

But things do not turn out as expected. Mission after mission proves fruitless, and Connell finds his ability and his stomach for combat questioned by his fellow airmen: the brash wing commander Imil; Captain Robey, an ace whose record is suspect; and finally, Lieutenant Pell, a cocky young pilot with an uncanny amount of skill and luck.

Disappointment and fear gradually erode Connell’s faith in himself, and his dream of making ace seems to slip out of reach. Then suddenly, one dramatic mission above the Yalu River reveals the depth of his courage and honor.

Originally published in 1956, The Hunters was James Salter’s first novel. Based on his own experiences as a fighter pilot in the Korean War, it is a classic of wartime fiction. Now revised by the author and back in print on the sixty-fifth anniversary of the Air Force, the story of Cleve Connell’s war flies straight into the heart of men’s rivalries and fears.

From Library Journal

Salter’s 1956 fighter pilot novel stands out as a literary endeavor in a genre dominated by cheap adventure yarns. Salter goes beyond the usual gung-ho fighter jock glitz to present the story of Capt. Cleve Connell, whose intentions of becoming an ace are thwarted by enemy pilots with plans of their own.

Review

“The contemporary writer most admired and envied by other writers…. He can… break your heart with a sentence.”

—Washington Post Book World

“Anyone under forty may not appreciate how profoundly Salter influenced my generation. [He] created the finest work ever to appear in print—ever—about men who fly and fight.”

—Robert F. Dorr, author of F-86 Sabre

“Darkly romantic… beautifully composed… a brilliant war novel.”

—Chicago Tribune

обложка книги The Master Sniper The Master Sniper

It is the spring of 1945, and the Nazis are eliminating all the witnesses to their horrible crimes, including Jews and foreigners remaining in the prison camps. Kommandant Repp, who is known as a master sniper, decides to hone his sniping abilities by taking a little target practice at the remaining laborers in his own prison camp. But one man escapes and becomes the key to solving the mystery of the cold, calculating Kommandmant Repp and his plans for ending the war.

Repp was the master sniper whose deadly talent had come to the notice of British Intelligence as the linchpin of a desperate Nazi plot to reverse the fortunes of the Third Reich at the eleventh hour. But what was the nature of the weapon that Repp was to aim—and who was to be his last target? Allied Intelligence officers Leets, from the U.S., and Outhwaite from England are dispatched to identify and abort his lethal mission. And when they finally learn the truth, the Second World War’s deadliest race against time is on….

Warning do not read this unless you have read Book One

This second book is set in the World War Three 1946 universe. A universe where Stalin Learns of “Operation Unthinkable”, Churchill’s ill-conceived plan to invade the USSR. He strikes first and attacks the West when it is at its weakest point and the Red Army is at its strongest. In Book Two we continue to explore one of the greatest “what ifs” in history. Who would have prevailed the Red Army or the forces of the Free World in an all out war, after the defeat of the Axis powers?

As Book One World War Three 1946 — The Red Tide — Stalin Strikes First ends, we find the Red Army has smash the feeble western armies in Germany and then France. America’s atomic scientists have been incapacitated by a dirty bomb containing polonium, smuggled in and detonated by a real NKVD spy George Koval. Who in our reality had access to the world’s only supply of the deadliest substance on earth, when he worked on producing the Mark III atomic bomb. Sometimes facts are stranger than fiction.

The Allies have temporarily stopped Stalin on the border of Spain and France where the Pyrenees Mountains makes a formidable barrier. As the Soviet version of the Blitzkrieg grinds to a temporary halt, Britain is given a chance to see the error of its wicked, capitalistic ways and to join the workers of the world. When this offer is rejected the Red Air Force prepares for an all-out attack with odds approaching five to one. Will the many, once again owe so much to the few of the RAF?

And where are the Americans? Have they abandoned their greatest ally? Have they scrapped too many of their planes and can they retool their economy, an economy that has switched almost totally to consumer products. Can they once again become the arsenal of democracy? Will they be in time to save the Royal Air Force?

Using a combination of their own skills and well-designed late war planes like the Tu 2S, the Yak 3, Yak 9 and the Lag 7 along with their newest jet fighters the MiG 9 Fargo and Yak 15 Feather, the Soviets will battle the Spitfires, Typhoons, Lincolns and Meteors of the RAF in a second battle for the skies over the British Isles.

Stalin is convinced that the next war, against the capitalist Amerikosi, will be in the air over Europe and the Soviet industrial machine starts to concentrate on air to air and surface to air missiles. These missiles are improved versions of the German Wasserfal and X4 missile. These Nazi wonder weapons were not developed in time to save the Thousand Year Reich. Brought to fruition by the Soviet industrial complex under the guidance of Sergo Peskov, the missiles wreak early havoc to the bomber streams of the RAF and USAAF. The era of massed attacks, by the manned strategic bomber, appears to be over.

Warning

These books are not written in any traditional style. They are a combination of historical facts, oral histories, third person and first person fictional accounts. They read more like an oral history or an entertaining history book complete with footnotes. I was inspired by “The Good War”: An Oral History of World War Two by Studs Terkel (1985 Pulitzer Prize for General Fiction) and Cornelius Ryan’s wonderful books “The Longest Day” and “A Bridge too Far”. I was especially captivated by Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything. Where the author explores the history of everyday objects and tells stories that captivate and educate all of us on the history of… well everything. Hopefully I have used their techniques of storytelling competently enough to entertain you for a few days.

World War Three 1946 — Book One — The Red Tide — Stalin Strikes First — Illustrated, Revised and Annotated edition.

An almost total re-write, including end notes that assist the reader down the path of a convincing, alternate history. An alternate history based on facts and logic.

• On the border of West Germany; Stalin has 60 mechanized divisions, composed of the battle hardened veterans.

• The US and Britain have demobilized their armies.

• Britain is bankrupt and rationing bread. Its empire is crumbling and its colonies are in revolt.

• Tens of thousands of USAAF and RAF planes have been dumped into the ocean, pushed into piles, crushed and left rotting in jungles around the world.

• Gangs of deserters roam the European country side.

• The US has entered a period of isolationism.

• The people of Europe are starving.

• The Germans are being brutally punished for their part in the war.

• The Soviet Union has acquired the major secrets of every strategic weapons system that the West has developed since 1935, including the atomic bomb. They have prototypes of every major German Wonder Weapon system produced since 1943.

• Greece, Italy and even France are in danger of turning Communist.

• The US and Britain have large Communist parties with thousands of sympathizers

• 90% of the industry in the US and Britain has been transformed from producing weapons, to consumer goods.

• Europe is in chaos and Capitalism has failed in the eyes of many.

These are facts, and this was the state of the world in May 1946. This alternate history proposes that this was the opportune time for Stalin to strike. This was his best chance of furthering the cause of Communism. This was his moment.

The Red Tide is the first in this series of fictional books. Alternate history explores the great “what ifs” of time. This is one of those great what ifs. The ribbons of time start to unravel and diverge from ours in 1943. Slowly at first and then faster and faster until a fateful day in May 1946. The Soviets have stopped the production of the US atomic bomb by incapacitating the majority of the American program’s scientists. This systematic crippling of the US atomic program convinces Stalin that the time is right to fulfill his deepest ambitions and once and for all rid Western Europe of Capitalism. We were able to obtain copies of many of the actual post war strategic plans of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. Many of the strategies proposed in these works, were developed from these actual plans, and would have been in effect for much of the 1946-1948 era. What if German designed jet fighters, jet bombers, rocket powered interceptors, super tanks, undetectable submarines, guided air to air and ground to air missiles were all in the hands of Joseph Stalin. The Wasserfall and the X4 missiles will sweep the skies clear. The V2 will strike without warning. A guided V1 will unerringly strike unsuspecting targets The Seehund will make the oceans unsafe once again. The Me 262, Me 163, He 162 and the AR 234 along with the MiG-9 and Yak-15 will duel with the Meteor and Shooting Star.

These books are not written in any traditional style but is a combination of historical facts, oral histories, third person and first person accounts. I was inspired by “The Good War” An Oral History of World War Two (1984 in literature1984) by Studs Terkel and Cornelius Ryan’s wonderful books “The Longest Day” and “A Bridge too Far.” There is no hero or character development. The story is the story and not the characters. We hear from those who felt, saw, ran, lost and won as well as from officials and historians. The story is told using the techniques of reporters, oral historians, historians and politicians. Although told in a short stories, vignettes and in an episodic manner, the novel builds on what has gone before.

     Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары, Проза, О войне

    Предисловие ко 2-ому изданию:

    В литературе о минувшей войне немало рассказано о пехотинцах, артиллеристах, танкистах, летчиках, моряках, партизанах. Но о такой армейской профессии, как военный переводчик, пока почти ничего не сказано. И для тех читателей, кто знает о их работе лишь понаслышке, небольшая книжка С. М. Верникова «Записки военного переводчика» — настоящее открытие. В ней повествуется о нелегком и многообразном труде переводчика — человека, по сути первым вступавшего в контакт с захваченным в плен врагом и разговаривавшим с ним на его родном языке. Перед читателем проходит целая галерея типов немецких солдат, а затем и «цивильных» немцев побежденной Германии. И это составляет тот человеческий, психологический материал книги, который представляет несомненный интерес.

    «Записки военного переводчика» в Пермском книжном издательстве вышли в 1964 году. Пятнадцатитысячный тираж быстро разошелся. Литературная общественность и читатели дали положительную оценку этой книжке. В 1965 году в майских номерах журналов «Новый мир» и «Урал» опубликованы краткие рецензии на «Записки» и в них выражено удовлетворение тем, что автору со своеобразной непосредственностью и лиричностью удалось рассказать о фронтовых буднях военного переводчика.

    А рассказать С. М. Верникову своим читателям есть о чем: с декабря 1943 года и до конца войны он был военным переводчиком в штабе стрелковой дивизии. После войны он в той же должности переводчика работал в одной из советских военных комендатур в Германии.

    За боевые заслуги в годы Великой Отечественной войны С. М. Верников награжден тремя орденами Красной Звезды и девятью медалями. Ныне он продолжает службу в одной из частей Уральского военного округа, является членом Союза журналистов СССР.

    Настоящее второе издание «Записок военного переводчика» автором несколько переработано и дополнено.

    Предисловие к 3-ему изданию:

    Автор предлагаемой книги, подполковник запаса С. М. Верников, в годы Отечественной войны был переводчиком на фронте, затем служил в Советской Военной администрации в Германии. Сейчас [1977] проживает в Серове. Воспоминания о пройденном боевом пути легли в основу книги, предлагаемой широкому кругу читателей.

  •  Штурм
     Ванюшин Василий Федорович
     Проза, О войне

    Василий Федорович Ванюшин, автор уже нескольких книг, посвященных событиям Великой Отечественной войны, в новом романе повествует о штурме советскими войсками сильнейшей фашистской крепости Кенигсберг. Участник этих событий, писатель для создания достоверных картин штурма, необычайного по ожесточению и сложности борьбы, использовал и богатый документальный материал, сохранившийся в архивах.

    Основное внимание в книге уделено образу начальника политотдела дивизии Веденеева, который со своими помощниками и немцами-антифашистами добился того, что гарнизон одного из кенигсбергских фортов сложил оружие.

    Победное сражение за Кенигсберг рисуется автором как закономерный итог долгого ратного пути героев романа — солдат советской страны.

     Проза, Классическая проза, Старинное, Древневосточная литература, Наука, Образование, История, О войне, , ,

    Древний китайский трактат «Искусство войны» написан более двух тысячелетий назад воином и философом Сунь-цзы (VI—V вв. до н. э.).

    Suddenly stranded with the final outcasts of a desolated world, Captain Farley navigates a maze of treachery and wonder—and finds a love seemingly decreed by fate—as his bomber becomes a pawn in a centuries-old conflict between remnants of advanced but decaying civilizations. Caught among these bitter enemies, a vast power that has brought them here for its own purposes, and a terrifying living weapon bent on their destruction, the crew must use every bit of their formidable inventiveness and courage to survive.
