Summary:

In December 1941 the Japanese invaded Burma. For the British, the longest land campaign of the Second World War had begun. 100,000 African soldiers were taken from Britain’s colonies to fight the Japanese in the Burmese jungles. They performed heroically in one of the most brutal theatres of war, yet their contribution has been largely ignored. Isaac Fadoyebo was one of those ‘Burma Boys’. At the age of sixteen he ran away from his Nigerian village to join the British Army. Sent to Burma, he was attacked and left for dead in the jungle by the Japanese. Sheltered by courageous local rice farmers, Isaac spent nine months in hiding before his eventual rescue. He returned to Nigeria a hero, but his story was soon forgotten. Barnaby Phillips travelled to Nigeria and Burma in search of Isaac, the family who saved his life, and the legacy of an Empire. Another Man’s War is Isaac’s story.

Summary:

A gun-toting preacher, a rebel army led by a madman, and entire villages slaughtered just because they were in the way. In Another Man's War, follow Sam Childer's remarkable transformation from violent thug to a man of faith, and his ongoing battle to save children in one of the world's most lawless areas. “Another Man’s War is about true terrorism . . . against more than 200,000 children in northern Uganda and Southern Sudan. Sam Childers—a fighter and a preacher (some call him a mercenary)—tirelessly leads a small militia into the jungle, daring to fight against a vicious army outnumbering him one thousand to one. One man can make a huge difference. Sam Childers certainly does.” ?Peter Fonda, actor/filmmaker, best known as star of Easy Rider “The Reverend Sam Childers has been a very close friend to the government of South Sudan for many years and is a trusted friend.” ?President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan “The Reverend Sam Childers is a long time devoted friend to our government and his courageous work is supported by us.” ?President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda “Sam Childers is one of those rare men [who is] willing to do literally whatever it takes to promote the message of Jesus Christ and save children from the tyranny of evil men.” ?John Rich, lead singer and songwriter, Big & Rich

Summary:

'On Another Man’s Wound', its title taken from an old Ulster proverb, ‘It’s easy to sleep on another man’s wound’, was first published in 1936 and has become the classic account of the years 1916-21 in Ireland. It captures the essence of Ireland at the time, the way people lived, their attitudes, their beliefs, the songs they sang, the legends they knew. O’Malley pictures the Irish landscape magnificently, and his cameo sketches of the great personalities of the Rising and the war that followed bring them into instant focus. The sequel 'The Singing Flame', which details O'Malley's experiences of the Irish Civil War, and 'Raids and Rallies', covering his comrade's experiences during the War of Independence, are also available from Mercier Press.

Summary:

Seven years ago, a star died in a distant part of the galaxy, sending its deadly gamma rays towards Earth. When the rays reached our planet, they killed virtually all of the human population overnight, leaving only a handful of survivors. Sergeant major Tim Flannery was left to fend for himself in a dead and decaying world. He thought he’d fought his last battle for humanity on the atoll of Volivoli. Now he only wants to be left in peace, with his new family and a growing new society in northern Arizona. But he faces another battle. A new evil has risen from the ashes of a dead United States, threatening to take what little he has left and destroy his small enclave. Flannery must again take up arms to preserve what little sanity is left in a world gone mad.

Summary:

Escaping certain death—not once but several times—lies at the core of the riveting, real-life story of an American soldier during World War II. In One Man's War: The WWII Saga of Tommy LaMore, a B-17 pilot vividly details his experiences in war-ravaged Germany, from the horrific to the romantic and beyond. LaMore's saga began when his plane collided with another B-17 above France and went down. He then entered the French Resistance, where he employed his knowledge of explosives to bomb German operations. After an informant turned him in, he faced a death sentence and was sent to a Polish death camp. LaMore endured the camp's gruesome conditions and eventually escaped, just days before the Germans machine-gunned every man in the camp. LaMore's love story unfolds as he describes liberating a women's slave labor camp and instantly falling in love with one of the detainees. LaMore chopped off her hair, dressed her like a man, and freed her from the camp. After just three days together, the couple agreed to marry once Rosa checked on her family's well being in Poland. They jumped separate trains and never saw each other again. Years later, LaMore learned that Rosa had become a freedom fighter against the Communists and had been executed. Intrigue, passion, and loss imbue LaMore's fascinating tale and make One Man's War a compelling read not only for history aficionados and WWII scholars but also for those who are fascinated by the bittersweet nature of love in times of war.

Summary:

1944. A peine sorti de l'enfance, le fantasque et fanfaron Ali Banana quitte son Nigeria natal pour rejoindre, fleur au fusil, une unité spéciale de la Royal West African Army : la " Brigade Thunder ", improbable commando de bras cassés créé par un colonel dément et chargé de décimer l'ennemi au fin fond de la Birmanie. Notre jeune Candide va faire son voyage qu bout de la nuit : une traversée hallucinée au cœur des ténèbres, dans une jungle noyée de pluies, infestée de snipers, de bêtes sauvages et de cadavres à la dérive, de Japonais maniant l'argot nigérian et de sangsues particulièrement attachantes. Pris dans l'apocalypse, le soldat Banana et ses frères d'armes, les " Chindits ", vont peu à peu sombrer dans la folie. Inspiré de faits et de personnages réels, La drôle et triste histoire du soldat Banana est un inoubliable récit, cru et violent mais illuminé par de somptueux éclats de drôlerie et de poésie. Biyi Bandele raconte la guerre comme jamais encore on ne l'avait fait.

Summary:

Introduction There are poems that seek And some that keep; Troubles that we find. But some are fun, They bring the sun And help to heal the mind. For things that are spoken Find hearts that are broken, Needing words to heal; But joy can be found If we let words surround, Thoughts we can’t conceal. So it’s time to look, Turn the pages of this book And find where reason leads; For words can say All that brightens the day, To give the mind what it needs.
