The Great War Illustrated 1916: Archive and Colour Photographs of WWI

With conscription introduced, Zeppelins carrying out bombing raids on key towns and cities across England, the Battle of Jutland seeing fourteen British ships sunk and the Battle of the Somme claiming 20,000 British dead on the first day alone, the resolve of the British and allied troops in 1916 was being sorely tested. The Great War Illustrated 1916 is the third picture volume in this series that deals exclusively with actions fought throughout the year on the Western Front.
Split into five chapters, the authors begin with the British defeat at Kut, showing photographs from British and Turkish perspectives throughout the four-month campaign. The second chapter explores the new technological advances made by both sides throughout the year including new tanks, aircraft and guns. Photographs show the new equipment in action on the battlefield as well as being manufactured on production lines in the factories back home. We then turn to the Battle of Verdun, one of the largest battles of the First World War, before exploring the Battle of Jutland. Being the only full-scale naval clash of the entire First World War, the two-day battle saw twenty-five ships sunk and over 8,000 men killed on both sides and the authors analyse the battle in full detail, illustrating the ships that were involved and the men who sailed upon them. The concluding chapter explores the infamous Battle of the Somme, from the horrendous losses suffered on 1 July to the arduous battle of attrition that followed thereafter. Split into sub-sections, detailed analysis of the Australians, Canadians and British troops are featured along with a final section showing winter conditions in the area at the end of the year.
With over 1,300 painstakingly enhanced and restored photographs and a thirty-two page full colour section, the work within these pages represents a real labour of love and offers the reader an exceptional picture library of rare and unseen pictures that is easily accessible for the general reader and military enthusiast alike. **

The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home

Quite by accident, September has been crowned as Queen of Fairyland – but she inherits a Kingdom in chaos. The magic of a Dodo’s egg has brought every King, Queen, or Marquess of Fairyland back to life, each with a fair and good claim on the throne, each with their own schemes and plots and horrible, hilarious, hungry histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn’t want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarckical Marathon, in which every outlandish would-be ruler of Fairyland will chase the Stoat of Arms across the whole of the nation – and the first to seize the poor beast will seize the crown. Caught up in the madness are the changelings Hawthorn and Tamburlaine, the combat wombat Blunderbuss, the gramophone Scratch, the Green Wind, and September’s parents, who have crossed the universe to find their daughter…

The Girl Who Lived Twice

**The sixth in the Millennium series featuring THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO**
“What will you do now?”
” *I shall be the hunter and not the hunted* ”
The girl with the dragon tattoo is finally ready to confront her nemesis, the only woman who is evidently and in many ways her match. Salander will not wait to be hunted. When she strikes it will be a double blow: vengeance for recent atrocities, and the settling of lifelong scores.
For months now Salander has been closing in on her target. She has moved from Stockholm, her hair is newly styled, her piercings are gone. She could pass for any other businesswoman. But not all businesswomen have a Beretta Cheetah beneath their jacket. They do not wield the lethal power of a hacker’s genius. They do not carry scars and tattoos to remind them that they have survived the unsurvivable.
The new episode in David Lagercrantz’s acclaimed, internationally bestselling continuation of Stieg Larsson’s Dragon Tattoo series is a thrilling ride that scales the heights of Everest and plunges the depths of Russian troll factories. It begins with the discovery of Mikael Blomkvist’s number at *Millennium* magazine in the pocket of an unidentified homeless man who died with the name of a government minister on his lips.
Blomkvist, at extreme risk to himself, tracks down his old friend and will protect her as far as he can. But he is powerless to crush her enemies on his own.
And for Lisbeth Salander, the personal is always political – and deadly.

The Extinction Switch

Young Kassandra Nishimura is an heiress to trillions of dollars. While she is relaxing with friends, six billion people are instantly exterminated on the other side of the planet. Seung Yi, a despot thought to be long dead, is back. Through the use of a self-replicating artificial virus called the extinction switch, he will wipe out all life on Earth unless humanity cedes the entire planet Mars, with all its cities, to him within six months.
Kassandra’s grandfather Kato, Seung Yi’s arch rival, must successfully launch a counterattack before the clock runs out. This will require a weapon of unprecedented size. Meanwhile, society disintegrates around Kassandra and friends, who are now trapped on Earth. Kassandra falls from the very top of society to being a starving refugee. She and her friends take refuge deep beneath a city. Even that becomes a bloody battle for survival, as the remnants of humanity start fighting each other. But, something awakens in Kasssandra’s soul. She was always meant to be more than a rich party girl. Can Kassandra find her true calling, and can Seung Yi be stopped before it’s too late?

The End of Alzheimer’s

**The instant *New York Times* and *Wall Street Journal* bestseller
A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline.**
Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer’s Disease.
In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive decline. Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, *The End of Alzheimer’s* outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene.
The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, *The End of Alzheimer’s* brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

The Elf Queen of Shannara

“Find the Elves and return them to the world of Men!” the shade of the Druid Allanon had ordered Wren.
It was clearly an impossible task. The Elves had been gone from the Westland for more than a hundred years. There was not even a trace of their former city of Arborlon left to mark their passing. No one in the Esterland knew of them — except, finally, the Addershag.
The blind old woman had given instructions to find a place on the coast of the Blue Divide, build a fire, and keep it burning for three days. “One will come for you.”
Tiger Ty, the Wing Rider, had come on his giant Roc to carry Wren and her friend Garth to the only clear landing site on the island of Morrowindl, where, he said, the Elves might still exist, somewhere in the demon-haunted jungle.
Now she stood within that jungle, remembering the warning of the Addershag: “Beward, Elf-girl. I see danger ahead for you . . . and evil beyond imagining.” It had proved all too true.
Wren stood with her single weapon of magic, listening as demons evil beyond all imagining gathered for attack. How long could she resist?
And if, by some miracle, she reached the Elves and could convince them to return, how could they possibly retrace her perilous path to reach the one safe place on the coast?
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks’s  *The Measure of the Magic*. **
### Recensione
I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and re-read) over the years (Patrick Rothfuss, author of THE NAME OF THE WIND)
Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world (Philip Pullman)
I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara (Peter V. Brett, author of THE PAINTED MAN)
If you haven’t read Terry Brooks, you haven’t read fantasy (Christopher Paolini, author of ERAGON)

### L’autore
A former monthly columnist for Astronomy magazine, Richard J. Bartlett has had a passion for the stars since the age of six. His first website, StarLore, was featured in Sky & Telescope magazine in early 2001. Following that success, he freelanced for Astronomy, reviewing astronomical websites and software in his monthly Webweaver Picks column. Additionally, he has moderated on the UniverseToday forums, operated his own astronomical messageboard and still manages his own space news website, AstroNews. (http://astronewsus.wordpress.com/) His latest blog, The Astronomical Year, highlights current astronomical events on an almost daily basis. (http://theastronomicalyear.wordpress.com/) Now living in the suburbs of Los Angeles, he still stops to stare at the sometimes smoggy night sky through the city’s light-pollution.

The Druid of Shannara

*****50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD*****
**THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES IS NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES**
**’Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world’ Philip Pullman**
To the scions of Shannara have fallen three tasks: Par Ohmsford has recovered the fabled Sword of Shannara. This he has accomplished, but the Federation’s Chief Seeker has planted an awful thought in Par’s mind – that he himself is Shadowen, the very evil he seeks to destroy. Wren is in the Westland, seeking out the elves. And in the Northland. . .
Walker Boh has been commanded by the shade of Allanon to find the lost city of Paranor and recreate the Order of Druids, disbanded for three hundred years. To achieve this he must find the Black Elfstone, but the gem is in the hands of an ancient being of timeless evil – the Stone King. Beset on all sides by enemies, and from within by his own self-doubt, Walker Boh sets out on his part of the perilous quest. A quest that will end in success – or the complete destruction of all he holds dear.
Praise for Terry Brooks:
**’A master of the craft . . . required reading’** Brent Weeks
**’I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and re-read) over the years’** Patrick Rothfuss, author of *The Name of the Wind*
**’I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara’** Peter V. Brett, author of *The Painted Man*
**’If you haven’t read Terry Brooks, you haven’t read fantasy’** Christopher Paolini, author of *Eragon*
*The Heritage of Shannara series:*
**THE SCIONS OF SHANNARA**
**THE DRUID OF SHANNARA**
**THE ELF QUEEN OF SHANNARA**

The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes

Scott Kelby, author of the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book in his popular series that picks up right where part 4 left off. It’s more of that “Ah ha–so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-technojargon stuff you can really use today that made part 1 so successful.
In parts 1 through 4 of this series, the most popular chapter in the book has always been the last chapter: “Photo Recipes to Help You Get ‘The Shot’.” In each of those chapters, Scott shows a final image and then describes how to get that type of shot.
Here, in part 5, he gives you what you’ve been waiting for: an entire book of nothing but those amazing photo recipes. But, he took it up a big notch by adding a behind-the-scenes photo for every single recipe. Now you can see exactly how it was done, so you can get that exact same look every time.
In these extra pages, each spread allows you to dig in a little deeper and really unlock the power of these recipes. Scott breaks each spread into four segments: (1) he explains exactly what you’re seeing behind the scenes, (2) he lists all of his camera settings, and lens and lighting info–it’s all there, (3) he gives you his thought process, so you learn exactly why he does it this way, and (4) he shares all the post-processing in Lightroom or Photoshop that goes on after the shoot (this is something other books leave out). Plus, the whole book is packed with tips and insights you won’t find anywhere else.
This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which settings to use, and exactly how and when to use them. With around 100 of the most popular photographic “tricks of the trade,” the entire book is designed to get you shooting like a pro starting today. You’re gonna love it.

The Devil’s Diary: Alfred Rosenberg and the Stolen Secrets of the Third Reich

**A groundbreaking World War II narrative wrapped in a riveting detective story, *The Devil’s Diary* investigates the disappearance of a private diary penned by one of Adolf Hitler’s top aides—Alfred Rosenberg, his “chief philosopher”—and mines its long-hidden pages to deliver a fresh, eye-opening account of the Nazi rise to power and the genesis of the Holocaust** An influential figure in Adolf Hitler’s early inner circle from the start, Alfred Rosenberg made his name spreading toxic ideas about the Jews throughout Germany. By the dawn of the Third Reich, he had published a bestselling masterwork that was a touchstone of Nazi thinking. His diary was discovered hidden in a Bavarian castle at war’s end—five hundred pages providing a harrowing glimpse into the mind of a man whose ideas set the stage for the Holocaust. Prosecutors examined it during the Nuremberg war crimes trial, but after Rosenberg was convicted, sentenced, and executed, it mysteriously vanished. *New York Times* bestselling author Robert K. Wittman, who as an FBI agent and then a private consultant specialized in recovering artifacts of historic significance, first learned of the diary in 2001, when the chief archivist for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum contacted him to say that someone was trying to sell it for upwards of a million dollars. The phone call sparked a decade-long hunt that took them on a twisting path involving a pair of octogenarian secretaries, an eccentric professor, and an opportunistic trash-picker. From the crusading Nuremberg prosecutor who smuggled the diary out of Germany to the man who finally turned it over, everyone had reasons for hiding the truth. Drawing on Rosenberg’s entries about his role in the seizure of priceless artwork and the brutal occupation of the Soviet Union, his conversations with Hitler and his endless rivalries with Göring, Goebbels, and Himmler, *The Devil’s Diary* offers vital historical insight of unprecedented scope and intimacy into the innermost workings of the Nazi regime—and into the psyche of the man whose radical vision mutated into the Final Solution. **
