The chamber was ill lit, just wan ...

Snke Neitzel TAPPING HITLERS GENERALS Transcripts of Secret Conversations 194245 FOREWORD Long after 1945, what has been called the legend of the unblemished Wehrmacht, which claimed to have remained largely detached from the criminality of the Hitler regime and the atrocities attributable to the SS, still survived. This was to some extent an indication of the limited state of research and a tendency to separate the military history of the war from the structural analysis of the Nazi state. The ...

If there was a delay, he had to wade out up to his knees in every tide, to show his willingness to ...

Tsouras Britannias Fist: From Civil War to World War 1 Cossacks, Copperheads, and Corsairs KAMERINSKI WOODS, OUTSIDE LODZ, POLAND, JULY 12, 1863 The sweat ran down his face as he lay hidden in the cool Polish forest. Jan Szmandas heart pounded as he aimed his musket at the cavalry patrol wending its way along the narrow woodworkers road. There were fifteen Cossacks, their lances bobbing with the canter, and an officer who rode at their head, his whip dangling from its loop around his ...

Bernard Knight A Plague of Heretics Prologue November 1196 The chapman could see that it was an unusual sort of funeral, even for such an outlandish place as Lympstone. There were corpses, bearers, mourners and a grave, but it was nothing like he had ever seen before. He shrugged his bulky pack from his back and set it down with some relief on the dusty road outside the church gate. Behind him, the track led down to a primitive wharf, where the river lapped against the muddy banks of the estuary ...

Across the small table, Gwyn of Polruan was already slurping his food from a horn spoon, alternately dipping a hunk of barley bread into the liquid. Its not too bad, Crowner At least its piping hot, though I dont know that we need that on a day like ...

Sword at Sunset Rosemary Sutcliff JUST as the saga of Charlemagne and his paladins is the Matter of France, so for fourteen hundred years or so, the Arthurian Legend has been the Matter of Britain. A tradition at first, then a hero-tale gathering to itself fresh detail and fresh glories and the rainbow colors of romance as it went along, until with Sir Thomas Malory it came to its fullest flowering. But of late years historians and anthropologists have come more and more to the belief that the ...

CHAPTER I When civil dudgeon first grew high, And men fell out, they knew not why When foul words, jealousies, and fears, Set folk together by the ears BUTLER. William, the Conqueror of England, was, or supposed himself to be, the father of a certain William Peveril, who attended him to the battle of Hastings, and there distinguished himself. The liberal-minded monarch, who assumed in his charters the veritable title of Gulielmus Bastardus, was not ...

KENILWORTH. by Sir Walter Scott, Bart. INTRODUCTION A certain degree of success, real or supposed, in the delineation of Queen Mary, naturally induced the author to attempt something similar respecting her sister and her foe, the celebrated Elizabeth. He will not, however, pretend to have approached the task with the same feelings for the candid Robertson himself confesses having felt the prejudices with which a Scottishman is tempted to regard the subject and what so liberal a historian avows, ...

THE TAVERN KNIGHT By Rafael Sabatini CHAPTER I. ON THE MARCH He whom they called the Tavern Knight laughed an evil laughsuch a laugh as might fall from the lips of Satan in a sardonic moment. He sat within the halo of yellow light shed by two tallow candles, whose sconces were two empty bottles, and contemptuously he eyed the youth in black, standing with white face and quivering lip in a corner of the mean chamber. Then he laughed again, and in a hoarse voice, sorely suggestive of the bottle, ...
