"A brilliant look into the psyche of combat. Where he once took us into the Spartan line of battle at Thermopylae, Steven Pressfield now takes us into the sands of the Sinai, the alleys of Old Jerusalem, and into the hearts and souls of soldiers winning a spectacularly improbable victory against daunting odds.” —General Stanley McChrystal, U.S. Army, ret.; author of My Share of the Task June 5, 1967. The nineteen-year-old state of Israel is surrounded by enemies who want nothing less than her utter extinction. The Soviet-equipped Egyptian Army has massed a thousand tanks on the nation’s southern border. Syrian heavy guns are shelling her from the north. To the east, Jordan and Iraq are moving mechanized brigades and fighter squadrons into position to attack. Egypt’s President Nasser has declared that the Arab force’s objective is “the destruction of Israel.” The rest of the world turns a blind eye to the new nation’s desperate peril. June 10, 1967. The Arab armies have been routed, ground divisions wiped out, air forces totally destroyed. Israel’s citizen-soldiers have seized the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria, East Jerusalem and the West Bank from Jordan. The land under Israeli control has tripled. Her charismatic defense minister, Moshe Dayan, has entered the Lion’s Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem to stand with the paratroopers who have liberated Judaism’s holiest site—the Western Wall, part of the ruins of Solomon’s temple, which has not been in Jewish hands for nineteen hundred years. It is one of the most unlikely and astonishing military victories in history. Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews with veterans of the war—fighter and helicopter pilots, tank commanders and Recon soldiers, paratroopers, as well as women soldiers, wives, and others—bestselling author Steven Pressfield tells the story of the Six Day War as you’ve never experienced it before: in the voices of the young men and women who battled not only for their lives but for the survival of a Jewish state, and for the dreams of their ancestors. By turns inspiring, thrilling, and heartbreaking, The Lion’s Gate is both a true tale of military courage under fire and a journey into the heart of what it means to fight for one’s people.

Ten-year-old Ava is not altogether sure that she is going to like life at her new home with her mum and her mum's new husband, Mr Everitt. The butler, Jiggins, seems to be permanently cross, and her stepfather rarely smiles. But there are bright spots: the stable lad, Tom, is friendly, and Connie, the cook, is a warm-hearted source of comfort. Most excitingly of all, Ava begins to meet other children from the area. Before long, though, Ava realises that her new friends are not all that they seem to be. If they are real, how does it come about that only she seems to be able to see them? And how are they related to the children who mysteriously disappeared five years before Ava arrived at Lionsgate. Lionsgate is the mysterious story of a young girl's adventures in the spirit world, and of what she learns there.

"As an institution with broad public reach, the Berlin Zoo for more than 150 years helped to shape German views not only of the animal world, but of the human world far beyond Germany's borders. Entwined with the fate of the German capital, the zoo suffered near complete obliteration during WW II, but Berliners resurrected their zoo immediately afterwards, paving the way for it to obtain its current status as the most species-rich zoo in the world"--

I have always been a soldier. I have known no other life. So begins Alexander’s extraordinary confession on the eve of his greatest crisis of leadership. By turns heroic and calculating, compassionate and utterly merciless, Alexander recounts with a warrior’s unflinching eye for detail the blood, the terror, and the tactics of his greatest battlefield victories. Whether surviving his father’s brutal assassination, presiding over a massacre, or weeping at the death of a beloved comrade-in-arms, Alexander never denies the hard realities of the code by which he lives: the virtues of war. But as much as he was feared by his enemies, he was loved and revered by his friends, his generals, and the men who followed him into battle. Often outnumbered, never outfought, Alexander conquered every enemy the world stood against him–but the one he never saw coming. . . . BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Steven Pressfield's The Profession.

Description :


Meet Austin, an eighteen-year-old whose body is much more fragile than his spirit. Despite the painful effects of osteogenesis imperfecta—a rare disease that makes bones brittle and prone to break—and the challenges of living with autism, Austin is an overcomer who inspires everyone he meets. The Unbreakable Boy is the raucously tender story of Austin’s joyful embrace of life’s tragedies and triumphs. In honest, utterly real storytelling, Scott pulls back the curtain of his life to reveal personal and family struggles, from marital meltdowns to destructive bouts with addiction. The only thing that keeps Scott buckled into this ride is his growing faith in God and the conviction that he was chosen as Austin’s dad. With every twist, this father-son saga breathes hope in to all of us who ever feel overwhelmed, wondering if the end of the rope we’re clinging to is fraying in our hands. Austin’s life is proof positive that the rope may break, but we don’t have to.
