Renegade half-breed samurai Gonji Sabatake has left the survivors of devastated Vedun, certain that his unknown Enemies---with their mysterious agenda, their monsters and their sorcery---are gathering strength for yet another attack on him and his allies. Seeking the aid of misanthropic werewolf Simon Sardonis, Gonji treks into a 16th-century Spain wracked by eerie supernatural forces. Trapped by his adversaries, Gonji is held captive by fanatical power in the torture-dungeons of the Inquisition. He learns of the evil cabal that enslaves multiple worlds and has wrought its venomous power in the highest offices of the medieval Church. Condemned to burn at the stake, Gonji is mystically counseled by a witch whose knowledge of sorcery and science compels him to somehow escape. For he must lead a refugee army, under pursuit of human and sorcerous assassins, in a flight across dark seas and into the interior of darkest Africa. There, to seek a bizarre castle's gateway to warped spatial anomalies, and learn his singular importance to the destiny of a system of concentric worlds. But will that incredible revelation empower or destroy him? Could any single warrior be expected to undertake the burden of such a quest? And even with the uncertain help of the powerful lycanthrope Simon, can Gonji survive the secrets of the... FORTRESS OF LOST WORLDS?

Sein Name ist Gonji Sabataké. Er ist der Sohn eines Samurai und einer westlichen Mutter. Aus dem fernen Osten ist er nach Europa gekommen, getrieben von einer nur halb verstandenen Vision. Verfolgt von den Schergen des Bösen überschreitet er die Grenze nach Spanien. Dort geht Gonji seinen Widersachern ins Netz und fällt in die Hände der gefürchteten Inquisition. In einem unterirdischen Kerker gefangen, von Folter bedroht, wird ihm das ganze Ausmaß der dunklen Verschwörung bewusst, die sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, ihn zu vernichten - und die bis in die höchsten Ränge der christlichen Kirche reicht.

Two NEW tales of GONJI SABATAKE, the itinerant samurai-Viking warrior! A rallying cry for fans of the popular 1980s heroic-fantasy series. An ideal entry point for new readers! The novelette "Reflections in Ice" -- picking up a mature Gonji, already well into his ca. 1600 A.D. European adventures, ensnared in a desperate crossfire between monstrous oppressors: the undead assassins of the Dark Company; and mysterious horrors residing in remote caves of the snowbound Pyrenees... The novella "Dark Venture" -- the most intense, action-packed and classic-pulp-worthy Gonji tale in the canon. The first-ever story of "young Gonji," in dishonored exile from his native land. Now facing deadly peril during a bizarre and ghastly sea voyage; caught in the clutches of a hell where corrupted spells of evil magic go to die... ALSO included is the essay "The GONJI Odyssey"—the definitive chronicle of the series’ creation and publishing history... PLUS, a generous preview of the coming NEW Gonji novel: the audacious origin tale of Gonji’s world -- BORN OF FLAME AND STEEL! "People will not know what hit them when they read 'Dark Venture.' It’s one of the most exciting (and gruesomely bonkers) sword-&-sorcery stories I’ve had the pleasure of reading." --Fletcher Vredenburgh, Black Gate Magazine "One of the most original characters in heroic fantasy returns in all-new adventures that are truly epic. The return of Gonji Sabatake is a cause for epic celebration." --Joe Bonadonna, MAD SHADOWS

GONJI, the demon-stalked warrior with the soul of his samurai forebears and the heart of his Viking mother, surges on through legend-haunted medieval Europe, seeking the key to his mysterious destiny... His infamy---and celebrity!---has seen a militant cult spawned around his legend and philosophies. Thus, Gonji must face persecution from religious and secular hierarchies, while dealing with human and supernatural assassins. Facing almost certain death, Gonji must make a grim decision. His ally, the enigmatic golden werewolf Simon Sardonis, has come to him with an earnest plea for help in France against a monstrous enemy of his own: the brutal, shape-shifting Farouche Clan. These are sorcerous invaders from another world, with whom Simon shares an eerie kinship. Their savagery overwhelms even Simon's formidable power, and now they threaten the woman he loves. But worse still, the Farouche fiends are the vanguard of a tyrannical, inter-dimensional conspiracy. A conspiracy which has insidiously snared Gonji in its age-old web of evil dominance. But can Gonji and the ferocious lycanthrope Simon together raise an effective force against such colossal evil, when the armies of their world refuse to help? Is there any power mighty enough to battle another world's dark sorcery, when it devours all before it with... A HUNGERING OF WOLVES?

Timothy Snyder nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reise ins Herz der Finsternis. Er erzählt in seinem aufsehenerregenden, zutiefst aufwühlenden Buch drei miteinander verknüpfte Geschichten Stalins Terrorkampagnen, Hitlers Holocaust und den Hungerkrieg gegen die Kriegsgefangenen und die nichtjüdische Bevölkerung erstmals so, wie sie sich tatsächlich zugetragen haben: zur gleichen Zeit und am gleichen Ort. Makellos recherchiert, atemberaubend geschrieben und von eindringlicher Humanität gehört Bloodlands zu den historischen Büchern, die einen anderen Blick auf die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts eröffnen. Noch bevor der Zweite Weltkrieg begann, hatte Hitlers zeitweiliger Partner und späterer Gegner Stalin bereits Millionen von Menschen umgebracht und setzte dieses Morden während des Krieges fort. Bevor Hitler besiegt war, hatte er sechs Millionen Juden ermorden lassen und ließ Millionen andere Menschen gezielt verhungern. All dies geschah auf einem einzigen Gebiet: den Bloodlands zwischen Russland und Deutschland. Doch als der Zweite Weltkrieg zu Ende war, verschwand die Erinnerung an diesen millionenfachen Mord in der Dunkelheit hinter dem Eisernen Vorhang. Nicht nur unser Bild vom Holocaust erweist sich jedoch mit dem Blick auf die Bloodlands als unvollständig und westlich verzerrt. Auch die Geschichte Europas gewinnt ein verlorenes Terrain im Osten zurück: die gemeinsame Erinnerung an 14 Millionen Tote und die größte Tragödie der modernen Geschichte. "Bloodlands wird für Jahrzehnte das wichtigste Buch zum Thema sein." Tony Judt "Dieses Buch zwingt seine Leser, Geschichte neu zu überdenken." Norman Davies "Ein originelles, wunderbares, furchterregendes Buch (&). Dieses so schön geschriebene und eindrucksvoll recherchierte Buch ist ohne Zweifel eines der wichtigsten Werke der Zeitgeschichte." Anthony Beevor

PREFACE The chronology is concerned primarily with operations of the US Army Air Forces and its combat units between December 7, 1941 and September 15, 1945. It is designed as a companion reference to the seven-volume history of The Army Air Forces in World War 11, edited by Wesley Frank Craven and James Lea Cate. The research was a cooperative endeavor carried out in the United States Air Force historical archives by the Research Branch of the Albert F. Simpson Historical Research Center. Such an effort has demanded certain changes in established historical methodology, as well as some arbitrary rules for presentation of the results. After International and US events, entries are arranged geographically. They begin with events at Army Air Forces Headquarters in Washington then proceed eastward around the world, using the location of the headquarters of the numbered air forces as the basis for placement. For this reason, entries concerning the Ninth Air Force while operating in the Middle East follow Twelfth Air Force. When that headquarters moves to England in October 1943, the entries are shifted to follow Eighth Air Force. The entries end with those numbered air forces which remained in the Zone of the Interior, as well as units originally activated in the ZI, then designated for later movement overseas, such as Ninth and Tenth Air Forces. The ZI entries do not include Eighth and Twentieth Air Forces, which were established in the ZI with the original intent of placing them in those geographical locations with which they became historically identified. For these two units, original actions are shown either under AAF or in their intended geographic area of location. All times and dates used are those of the area under discussion. The entry "1/2 Jun" indicates that an event occurred during the night between the two given dates, while "1-2 Jun" indicates an action over a period of time. In dealing with people, again arbitrary decisions were implemented. For military men below the general officer or equivalent level, full grade and name were used. For general officers and those of equal grade in other US and foreign services, the complete rank (both that at the time first mentioned and the highest rank held prior to the end of the war) and name will be found in the index. Only an abbreviated rank (e.g., Gen or Adm) and last name are used in the text. The exception is where two general officers had the same last name; in such cases, the first name is also included. Similarly for civilian leaders, only the last name is used; full name and title are given in the index. Location of all towns, islands, etc., is also made in the index. In all cases, attempts were made to cite place names in use by the native population at the time of or immediately before the war. No names imposed by a conqueror are used. For example Pylos Bay, not Navarino Bay, is used. Further, as appropriate, native geographic terms are used: Shima for island in. Japanese island groups, See for lake in Germany. However, two exceptions were made. In cases in which the place became infamous because of the actions of the conquering power, that name is preferred-for example Auschwitz would be used rather than the Polish name of Oswiecim. Also, in larger international cities, such as Roma, Koln and Wien, the anglicized name is used. Where a village or hamlet was difficult to locate or where there were several such places with the same name in a general area, the coordinates are given in the index. In some cases, with no extant navigational aids of the attacking force, the best possible guess was made based upon all available evidence. In other instances, such as the bridge at Hay-ti-attacked so often by Tenth Air Force-- a logical guess could not be made. In these cases, a question mark is placed in brackets after the index entry. Accent marks, such as umlauts, were omitted.

Von Holnis nach Amrum und zur sturmumtosten Hallig Hooge - John Benthien ermittelt in seinem persönlichsten Fall Schleswig-Holstein, kurz vor Weihnachten. Auf der Halbinsel Holnis wird in einem hohlen Baumstamm eine verweste Frauenleiche gefunden. Für Hauptkommissar John Benthien, den ermittelnden Beamten, ist dieser Fall besonders, denn der Baum mit der Leiche steht im Garten der Eltern seiner Exfreundin Karin. Und es kommt noch schlimmer: Ein paar Tage später wird Karin im selben Garten erschlagen, und alle Hinweise deuten ausgerechnet auf Benthien als Täter. Für den Kommissar stehen zwei Dinge fest. Erstens: Er ist unschuldig. Zweitens: Er wird den wahren Mörder finden.
