Legion of the Damned by Sven Hassel Book Resume:

Sven Hassel's iconic war novel about the Russian Front. 'An extraordinary book, which has captured the attention of all of Europe' - NEW YORK TIMES 'LEGION OF THE DAMNED is an incredible picture of totalitarianism, of stupefying injustice ... He is graphic, at times brilliantly so, but never brutal or bitter. He is, too, a first-rate storyteller' - WASHINGTON POST Convicted of deserting the German army, Sven Hassel is sent to a penal regiment on the Russian Front. He and his comrades are regarded as expendable, cannon fodder in the battle against the implacable Red Army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they fight their way across the frozen steppe... This iconic anti-war novel is a testament to the atrocities suffered by the lone soldier in the fight for survival. Sven Hassel's unflinching narrative is based on his own experiences in the German Army. He began writing his first novel, LEGION OF THE DAMNED in a prisoner of war camp at the end of the Second World War.

Legion of the Damned - Book One by Sven Hassel Book Resume:

Porta narrowed his green, piggy eyes. - I shall tell you, dear fellow. If you are a Party member you will obey the Führer’s commandment that the good of the whole comes before that of the individual. And therefore, you will say something like this: “Brave warriors of the 27th Fire-and-Sword Regiment! To help you to fight even better for Führer and People, I, in my gratitude, will make you a gift of the bottle of rum that Herr Joseph Porta, by God’s Grace Obergefreiter, in his infinite goodness wished to give to my unworthy person. Wasn’t that just what you were wanting to say? Weren’t those very words trembling on the tip of your tongue? Dear fellow, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and now you may fuck off! Porta flung out his hand with a magnificent flourish, raised his cap and shouted, “Grüss Gott!” As soon as the wretched Nazi railwayman had gone, furiously gnashing his teeth, we opened the parcel. There were five bottles of wine, there was a whole roast of pork; there were two roast chickens, and there was... Sven Hassel was sent to a penal regiment in the German Wehrmacht where he served during the Second World War. When the war ended in 1945, he began writing Legion of the Damned during his time as a prisoner of war. With a brutal realism he describes the atrocities of war and the crimes of the nazis. He manages to give an important voice to the soldiers that gave their lives and were used as pawns that is both cynical and ingrained with an intelligent and coarse sense of humor. His fourteen World War II books, which draw on his own encounters and experiences as a soldier, have sold over 53 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 50 countries.

The Legion of the Damned by Bennett J. Doty Book Resume:

The Legion of the Damned tells the story of Bennett Jeffries Doty, an American soldier and adventurer who enlisted in the Foreign Legion, fought in Syria, deserted, and was captured and then sentenced to death. Fate intervened in the form of an American foreign correspondent covering the fighting in Syria, whom Doty met just days before deserting, and it was no doubt owing to this meeting and the ensuing publicity that Doty managed to escape his plight, with his sentence reduced to an eight-year prison term in a French military prison. He eventually received a full pardon and ticket out of the Legion. Shortly after his release from prison and his return back to the United States in December of 1927, he published this book. An exciting and action-packed Foreign Legion memoir!

Hundreds of years in the future, much has changed. Advances in medicine, technology, and science abound. Humanity has gone to the stars, found alien life, and established an empire. But some things never change... All her life, Lady Catherine Carletto—Cat—has lived for the next party, the next lover, the next expensive toy. Until, in a bloodthirsty power grab, Imperial Princess Ophelia and her cadre of synth assassins murder her brother, the emperor, and go on to purge the galaxy of his friends and allies—including Cat’s family. Now Cat is on the run. And, like countless others before her, she finds sanctuary among the most dangerous of society’s misfits—the Legion. Cat becomes Andromeda McKee: a woman with a mission—to bring down Empress Ophelia—or die trying.

Andromeda's War by William C. Dietz Book Resume:

“Returning to his Legion of the Damned universe, Dietz illustrates why he’s a master of the genre" (RT Book Reviews). And in Andromeda’s War, his heroine will face her ultimate test—as a battle-scarred legionnaire and as an innocent young woman who once lost everything… Now a platoon leader, Legionnaire Andromeda McKee seems to have successfully left behind her true identity of Lady Catherine “Cat” Carletto, one of the last two surviving members of the Carletto family targeted for death by Empress Ophelia.

Convicted of deserting the German army, Sven Hassel was sent to a punishment regiment on the Russian Front.

All of them should be dead: life expectancy on the Russian Front is measured in weeks. But Sven, Porta, Tiny and The Legionnaire fight to the end, not for Germany, not for Hitler, but for survival.

Death's Head by David Gunn Book Resume:

Set in a chillingly realistic far-future world, and featuring a gritty antihero even more frightening than the evil empire he serves as soldier and assassin, Death’s Head is sure to be one of the most talked-about novels of the year. David Gunn is loaded—and he shoots to kill. At the top of the galactic pecking order is the United Free, a civilization of awe-inspiring technological prowess so far in advance of other space-faring powers as to seem untouchable gods. Most of the known universe has fallen under their inscrutable sway. The rest is squabbled over by two empires: one ruled with an iron fist by OctoV, a tyrant who appears to his followers as a teenage boy but is in reality something very different, the other administered by the Uplifted, bizarre machinelike intelligences, and their no-longer-quite-human servants, cyborgs known as the Enlightened. Sven Tveskoeg, an ex-sergeant demoted for insubordination and sentenced to death, is a vicious killer with a stubborn streak of loyalty. Sven possesses a fierce if untutored intelligence and a genetic makeup that is 98.2 percent human and 1.8 percent . . . something else. Perhaps that “something else” explains how quickly he heals from even the worst injuries or how he can communicate telepathically with the ferox, fearsome alien savages whose natural fighting abilities regularly outperform the advanced technology of their human enemies. Perhaps it is these unique abilities that bring Sven to the attention of OctoV. Drafted into the Death’s Head, the elite enforcers of OctoV’s imperial will, Sven is given a new lease on life. Armed with a SIG diabolo–an intelligent gun–and an illegal symbiont called a kyp, Sven is sent to a faraway planet, the latest battleground between the Uplifted and OctoV. There he finds himself in the midst of a military disaster, one that will take all his courage—and all his firepower—to survive. But an even deadlier struggle is taking place, a struggle that will draw the attention of the United Free. Sven knows he is a pawn, and pawns have a bad habit of being sacrificed. But Sven is nobody’s sacrifice. And even a pawn can checkmate a king. Praise for Death's Head “The finest military science-fiction debut in years.”—Kirkus Reviews “Hardboiled, laser-blasting science fiction as it’s meant to be.”—Charlie Huston, author of Caught Stealing and Already Dead

Now she must choose between her conscience and her desire for vengeance... In a different world, Lady Catherine “Cat” Carletto would never have left her pampered life behind. But when Princess Ophelia became Empress Ophelia in a coup that claimed the lives of the princess’s brother and all who supported him, including the Carletto family, Cat had to hide—or die. She became Legionnaire Andromeda McKee, and now she’s a battle-scarred veteran who knows how to kill. Summoned to Earth to receive the Imperial Order of Merit from the empress herself, Andromeda learns that she isn’t the sole surviving Carletto—her uncle Rex is not only still alive but also the leader of a resistance group determined to overthrow Ophelia. Caught up in a web of intrigue, Andromeda realizes that the moment is coming when her revenge will be at hand. But will she be able to act, or will she be betrayed by those she has come to trust?

The New York Times–bestselling author’s military sci-fi saga continues as the fate a remote planet decides the future of the Confederacy. Second Lt. Antonio Santana was considered a hero—until he refused an order to fire on unarmed civilians. Now stripped of his rank, he’s been posted to the isolated planet of LaNor. Since its discovery, LaNor has attracted attention from all corners of the still-precarious Confederacy of Sentient Beings—all with an eye to exploiting its location and natural resources. As for the native LaNorians, little concern is paid to them except as a steady supply of cheap labor. But now, led by their empress, the LaNorians are ready to launch a rebellion. Taken by surprise and suddenly surrounded, the competing interests must band together for survival. It is an unlikely alliance held together by Santana’s courage and the diplomatic prowess of his sometime lover Christine Vanderveen. Even as the Legion and its newfound allies struggle to fend off the LaNorians, Santana begins to suspect that they all may be pawns in a much greater and deadlier campaign. Someone else is behind the uprising. And their true objective is to spread the chaos of war far beyond LaNor . . . “[An] elaborate military-political thriller . . . Dietz has created an intricate tapestry of local and star-faring culture with topnotch action sequences.” —Publishers Weekly

The Great Syrian Revolt and the Rise of Arab Nationalism by Michael Provence Book Resume:

The Great Syrian Revolt of 1925 was the largest and longest-lasting anti-colonial insurgency in the inter-war Arab East. Mobilizing peasants, workers, and army veterans, rather than urban elites and nationalist intellectuals, it was the first mass movement against colonial rule in the Middle East. The revolt failed to liberate Syria from French occupation, but it provided a model of popular nationalism and resistance that remains potent in the Middle East today. Each subsequent Arab uprising against foreign rule has repeated the language and tactics of the Great Syrian Revolt. In this work, Michael Provence uses newly released secret colonial intelligence sources, neglected memoirs, and popular memory to tell the story of the revolt from the perspective of its participants. He shows how Ottoman-subsidized military education created a generation of leaders of modest background who came to rebel against both the French Mandate rulers of Syria and the Syrian intellectuals and landowners who helped the colonial regime to function. This new popular nationalism was unprecedented in the Arab world. Provence shows compellingly that the Great Syrian Revolt was a formative event in shaping the modern Middle East.

The sequel to the bestselling THE STORMCALLER After the shattering events of THE STORMCALLER, the eyes of the Land are on the minor city of Scree, which could soon be obliterated as the new Lord of the Farlan plots his revenge against Scree's rulers. Suffering under an unnatural summer drought and surrounded by volatile mercenary armies that may be its only salvation, the city is a strange sanctuary for a fugitive abbot to flee to, but he is only the first of many to be drawn there. Kings and princes, lords and monsters; all walk the sun-scorched streets while the evenings witness the performance of cruel and subversive plays that work their way into the hearts of the audience. Elite soldiers clash after dark and the city begins to tear itself apart as the sanity of its citizens crumbles, yet even chaos can be scripted. There is a malevolent will at work in Scree and one that has a lesson for the entire Land; nations can be manipulated, prophecies perverted, and Gods denied. Nothing lies beyond the reach of a shadow, and no matter how great a man's power, there some things he cannot be protected from.

Yet it is a facade. In truth, the alien Vord are pushing deeper into Uman space even as the noble families maneuver for power within a waning Empire. But for Xeno Corps Centurion Jak Cato, all that matters is that he’s still alive. After a disastrous mission that almost cost him everything, he’s returning to the Imperial capital of Corin with his beloved Alamy for some well-deserved down time—which soon becomes no time. For as Cato watches a grand procession, he catches a glimpse of his mighty Emperor—and in one horrifying instant, Cato’s enhanced senses recognize that while the Emperor looks the same, it is not him. It is Fiss Verafti, the murderous Sagathi shape-changer Cato had just hunted down. The creature he thought was dead! As the Empire strains under attacks from within and without, Cato doggedly investigates the mystery of how Verafti made his way from the grave to the throne and who is behind the astounding plot. And when he does discover the truth, it will change Cato—and the entire galaxy—forever... “When it comes to military science fiction, William Dietz can run with the best.”—Steve Perry, author of the Matador series “Adrenaline-fueled, Clancy-esque adventure.”—Publishers Weekly

Darkening the Italian Screen by Eugenio Ercolani Book Resume:

 The birth and rise of popular Italian cinema since the early 1950s can be attributed purely to necessity. The vast number of genres, sub-genres, currents and crossovers and the way they have overlapped, died out or replaced each other has been an attempt, in postwar years, to contain the invasion of U.S. product while satisfying the demands the American industry had created in Italy. The author explores one of the most multi-faceted and contradictory industries cinema has ever known through the careers of those most closely associated with it. His recorded interviews were conducted with directors and actors both well-known and upcoming.

Empress Game by Rhonda Mason Book Resume:

‘Power, grace, deadliness defined. Always cunning, endlessly victorious…’ One seat on the intergalactic Sakien Empire’s supreme ruling body, the Council of Seven, remains unfilled: that of the Empress Apparent. The seat isn’t won by votes or marriage. It’s won in a tournament of ritualized combat. Now the tournament, the Empress Game, has been called and the women of the empire will stop at nothing to secure political domination for their homeworlds. Kayla Reunimon, a supreme fighter, is called by a mysterious stranger to battle it out in the arena. The battle for political power isn’t contained by the tournament’s ring, however. The empire’s elite gather to forge, strengthen or betray alliances in a dance that will determine the fate of the empire for a generation. With the empire wracked by a rising nanovirus plague and stretched thin by an ill-advised planet-wide occupation of Ordoch in enemy territory, everything rests on the woman who rises to the top.

The Poisoned Well by Roger Hardy Book Resume:

The conflicts and crises of today's Middle East are rooted in the colonial era. To better understand them, we need to acknowledge how Western imperialism negatively shaped the region and its destiny in the half-century between World War I and the happenings of the Cold War. That is the challenging argument of The Poisoned Well, which provides a vivid account of the struggle against European colonial rule in ten states stretching from North Africa to south Arabia. Drawing on a rich cast of eye-witnesses - ranging from nationalists and colonial administrators to soldiers, spies, and courtesans - The Poisoned Well brings to life the story of the making of the Middle East, highlighting the great dramas of decolonization such as the end of the Palestine mandate, the Suez crisis, the Algerian war of independence, and the retreat from Aden. It argues that imperialism sowed the seeds of future conflict - and poisoned relations between the Middle East and the West. Bolstered by firsthand accounts and interviews, readers will find a wise and humanistic account of the struggle for independence in the Middle East. Written by a former BBC journalist, it is a far-ranging, landmark work that will serve as the definitive history of Western imperialism in the Middle East for years to come.

Brotherhood of Heroes by Bill Sloan Book Resume:

This Band of Brothers for the Pacific is the gut-wrenching and ultimately triumphant story of the Marines' most ferocious—yet largely forgotten—battle of World War II. Between September 15 and October 15, 1944, the First Marine Division suffered more than 6,500 casualties fighting on a hellish little coral island in the Pacific. Peleliu was the setting for one of the most savage struggles of modern times, a true killing ground that has been all but forgotten—until now. Drawing on interviews with Peleliu veterans, Bill Sloan's gripping narrative seamlessly weaves together the experiences of the men who were there, producing a vivid and unflinching tableau of the twenty-four-hour-a-day nightmare of Peleliu. Emotionally moving and gripping in its depictions of combat, Brotherhood of Heroes rescues the Corps's bloodiest battle from obscurity and does honor to the Marines who fought it.

At Empire's Edge by William C. Dietz Book Resume:

The national bestselling author of Battle Hymn delivers a high-velocity sci-fi thriller in which a lone lawman must take down those who would topple an empire... For centuries, the Uman Empire has ruled the civilized universe. But not all of the alien races who were “invited” to join the Empire have done so willingly. To deal with these alien species, the Xeno Corps was formed—bio-engineered humans with extra-sensory enhancements who can hunt down, capture or eliminate all such threats to Pax Umana. Jak Cato is a one of them—but he’s far from a perfect specimen. Saddled with a dislike for authority and a penchant for self-destructive behavior, only his devotion to duty and sense of honor have kept him afloat in the Corps. When he and his comrades are waylaid on a remote planet while transferring a lethal, shapeshifting Sagathi prisoner, Cato is sent into town for supplies, only to end up drunk, beaten and robbed. But worse news awaits him when he wakes. His entire detachment has been mercilessly slaughtered and the Sagathi is gone. Now Cato must use all his innate skills to hunt down the fugitive and pay back the bastards who murdered his team. But what he doesn’t know is that his pursuit will lead him outside the law and into a shadowy world of Imperial intrigue—where those who seek justice rarely get it, and rarely survive... “A testosterone-soaked tale of violent retribution.”—Publishers Weekly "Dietz writes fast-paced military SF.”—Library Journal

Our Friends Beneath the Sands by Martin Windrow Book Resume:

The gripping true story of the French Foreign Legion in the Sahara. Ever since the 1920s the popular legend of the French Foreign Legion has been formed by P.C. Wren's novel BEAU GESTE - a world of remote forts, warrior tribes, and desperate men of all nationalities enlisting under pseudonyms to fight and die under the desert sun. As with all clichés, the reality is far richer and more surprising than this. In this book Martin Windrow describes desert battles and famous last stands in gripping detail - but he also shows exactly what the Foreign Legion were doing in North Africa in the first place. He explains how French colonial methods there actually had their roots in the jungles of Vietnam, and how the political pressures that kept the empire expanding can be traced to battles on the streets of Paris itself. His description of the Berber tribesmen of Morocco also reveals some disturbing modern parallels: the formidable guerrillas of the 1920s were inspired by an Islamic fundamentalist who was adept at using the world's media to further his cause. Martin Windrow's previous book THE LAST VALLEY received fabulous reviews across the English-speaking world. This unique book, which is the first to examine the 'golden age' of the Foreign Legion has followed suit.

Antonio Santana was considered a hero—until he refused an order to fire on unarmed civilians. Now stripped of his rank, he’s been posted to the isolated planet of LaNor. Since its discovery, LaNor has attracted attention from all corners of the still-precarious Confederacy of Sentient Beings—all with an eye to exploiting its location and natural resources. As for the native LaNorians, little concern is paid to them except as a steady supply of cheap labor. But now, led by their empress, the LaNorians are ready to launch a rebellion. Taken by surprise and suddenly surrounded, the competing interests must band together for survival. It is an unlikely alliance held together by Santana’s courage and the diplomatic prowess of his sometime lover Christine Vanderveen. Even as the Legion and its newfound allies struggle to fend off the LaNorians, Santana begins to suspect that they all may be pawns in a much greater and deadlier campaign. Someone else is behind the uprising. And their true objective is to spread the chaos of war far beyond LaNor . . . “[An] elaborate military-political thriller . . . Dietz has created an intricate tapestry of local and star-faring culture with topnotch action sequences.” —Publishers Weekly
