Description :


The tragedies of World War II are well known. But at least one has been forgotten: in September 1939, four hundred thousand cats and dogs were massacred in Britain. The government, vets, and animal charities all advised against this killing. So why would thousands of British citizens line up to voluntarily euthanize household pets? In The Great Cat and Dog Massacre, Hilda Kean unearths the history, piecing together the compelling story of the life—and death—of Britain’s wartime animal companions. She explains that fear of imminent Nazi bombing and the desire to do something to prepare for war led Britons to sew blackout curtains, dig up flower beds for vegetable patches, send their children away to the countryside—and kill the family pet, in theory sparing them the suffering of a bombing raid. Kean’s narrative is gripping, unfolding through stories of shared experiences of bombing, food restrictions, sheltering, and mutual support. Soon pets became key to the war effort, providing emotional assistance and helping people to survive—a contribution for which the animals gained government recognition. Drawing extensively on new research from animal charities, state archives, diaries, and family stories, Kean does more than tell a virtually forgotten story. She complicates our understanding of World War II as a “good war” fought by a nation of “good” people. Accessibly written and generously illustrated, Kean’s account of this forgotten aspect of British history moves animals to center stage—forcing us to rethink our assumptions about ourselves and the animals with whom we share our homes.

AUDIENCE: video-game fanatics and anyone who loves dogs, weird cats, or parrots that talk too much. TEASER: If you could take your pet with you into a video game, would you kick butt or die of embarrassment? And what if you could create an on-screen "you" who's the person you've always dreamed of being? Would you ever stop playing? In Unleashed ... * Sami loves a brilliant dog named Blaze. * Bear owns a mongrel known as Mutt. * Hannah endures a talking bird (Einstein) and a fussy cat (Sublime). *Trane is about to unleash a devilish dog named Blood and a seven-foot python known as Muscles. They're all trying to find a place called Freeland, where pets and owners who have bonded are known as "twins." SUMMARY: The video game UNLEASHED allows players to take their dogs, cats, parrots, and snakes into cyberspace, where all pets possess enhanced intelligence (yes, they talk). Cyberspace is a zit-free zone. Our twelve-year-old heroes (Sami and Bear) are lookin' good and our villains (Steve the-Freight-Train Trane and Jake-the-Snake Simmons, also twelve) are all muscle, all mean. Both sides are convinced that their super-pets will enable them to kick butt and gain glory. VIDEO GAME TIE-IN: The novel and the video game share the same name, Unleashed. The objective of the game is to find Freeland, an area that is free of radiation and unblighted by toxic waste. To get there, players and their pets must journey through a desert known as the Wasteland, endure a toxic wilderness called the Badlands, survive Oblivion Falls, and sneak through the city of Bedlam. MAJOR CHARACTERS: We focus on the emotions of two characters, Sami James and Bear Brewster (age twelve). Both are modern kids with modern problems. Bear is polar-bear big and teddy-bear nice - most of the time. Lately he's been having a lot of trouble controlling his anger, and he's discovering that his dad also has a hidden history connected with his temper. Sami hates acting like a mother to her own mom, but she does what's necessary to get her barely functioning parent to work every morning. WEBSITE: www.LeeSmyth.com

A true story of young Aircrews thrust into a potential heated conflict between the United States, and North Korea. North Korea steals our ship. They capture and imprison it's Naval crew. During this era, we young Airmen were not in the jungles of Viet Nam getting sniped at by Viet Cong. We did not endure the harshness of war's reality there. But we were intricately trained and remained vital to support U.S. interests from our strategic positions at Okinawa. We landed in Korea 10 hours after they seized our ship. This book reflects on the emotion, and unheard details from behind the scenes of what becomes known as, "The Pueblo Incident." This story is true and accurate to the best of my recollection nearly 50 years later.

Description :


Savagery, much attributed to the 'old world' is not entirely absent in the 'new world' but rather it is more prevalent than ever before. Modern civilization has made the 20th century the bloodiest century in human history. Industrialization of wars and violence in the 20th century led to killing of more than 350 million people, directly or indirectly. Science and technology led to discovery and mass usage of lethal weapons. Usage of petroleum expanded the war zone to include several continents. Localized battles of 'old world' turned into global World wars. But world wars haven't stopped for a moment. World has not seen respite from war. Right at this moment there are several countries fighting wars with one another. There is internal war going on in almost half of the countries in the world. All these wars are being fuelled and sustained by billions of tonnes of weapons produced by the Military-industrial complex every year. An impressive array of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons are waiting to be dropped on our heads. What has been produced at great cost and is being stored with great care, is certainly meant for use and will be used one day. But why are we so hell-bent on killing each other? Why is our species so violence-prone? To answer these questions we would do well to think about our exploitation and slaughter of animals and its effect on human civilization. Could it be that we oppress and kill each other so readily because our abuse and slaughter of animals has desensitized us to the suffering and death of others? An ancient Chinese verse so rightly puts it, "For hundreds of thousands of years the stew in the pot has brewed hatred and resentment that is difficult to stop. If you wish to know why there are disasters of armies and weapons in the world, listen to the piteous cries from the slaughterhouse at midnight." Agnes Ryan concurs, "Wars will never cease while men still kill other animals for food, for to turn any living creature into a roast, a steak, a chop, or any other type of 'meat' takes the same kind of violence, the same kind of bloodshed, and the same kind of mental processes required to change a living man into a dead soldier." Peace will be possible only if we live and let others live.

Maude King, Maggie McDonald, and Millie Mitchell had been best friends for as long as they could remember. The night before the girls graduated from high school in 1941, they made a "one for all and all for one" Three Musketeer vow. Each young woman sent her fellow off to war, and eventually all became wives and mothers. The War Baby is the heartwarming story of one of their offspring. This book will make you laugh, and it will make you cry. The captivating characters of this engaging family drama will keep you turning page after page. The intricate plot revolves around keeping hush-hush a big secret. Those in on the deception have pledged to take it with them to their graves. The narrative navigates the reader down the oft-rocky road to romance, through shadows of doubt, in and out of some adventuresome alleyways, and even behind the veil of mystery. In due course, triumph trumps tragedy, but not before traversing some intriguing, as well as ironic twists and turns along the way. This provocative tale might also prompt you to pause, and to ponder just who you are, and how you came to be. Larry G. Johnson devoted periods of his life to ministry, college administration, and counseling. He also owned one of the oldest bookstores in the United States, and then he became a newspaper columnist. The author is now a self-unemployed journalist who migrates back and forth between his little lakeside retreat in northwest Georgia, and a special place at the edge of the wilderness on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.
