In this fascinating account of the battle tanks that saw combat in the European Theater of World War II, Mary R. Habeck traces the strategies developed between the wars for the use of armored vehicles in battle. Only in Germany and the Soviet Union were truly original armor doctrines (generally known as "blitzkreig" and "deep battle") fully implemented. Storm of Steel relates how the German and Soviet armies formulated and chose to put into practice doctrines that were innovative for the time, yet in many respects identical to one another. As part of her extensive archival research in Russia, Germany, and Britain, Habeck had access to a large number of formerly secret and top-secret documents from several post-Soviet archives. This research informs her comparative approach as she looks at the roles of technology, shared influences, and assumptions about war in the formation of doctrine. She also explores relations between the Germans and the Soviets to determine whether collaboration influenced the convergence of their armor doctrines.

When The Glass Bees was first published in 1960, junger's German critics dismissed the book's vision as lacking contemporary relevance. Today, however, the future it imagines seems very much like the present we now know.

An empire at war. Three fates intertwined. The Magician. Horace has destroyed the Temple of the Sun, but now he finds his slave chains have been replaced by bonds of honor, duty, and love. Caught between two women and two cultures, he must contend with deadly forces from the unseen world. The Rebel. Jirom has thrown in his lot with the slave uprising, but his road to freedom becomes ever more dangerous as the rebels expand their campaign against the empire. Even worse, he feels his connection with Emanon slipping away with every blow they strike in the name of freedom. The Spy. Alyra has severed her ties to the underground network that brought her to Akeshia, but she continues the mission on her own. Yet, with Horace’s connection to the queen and the rebellion’s escalation of violence, she finds herself treading a knife’s edge between love and duty. Dark conspiracies bubble to the surface as war and zealotry spread across the empire. Old alliances are shattered, new vendettas are born, and all peoples—citizen and slave alike—must endure the ravages of storm and steel. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"the most powerful memoir of any war" --DAILY TELEGRAPH NEWSPAPER (Britain) "critical success ... revels in the glory of combat"--NEW YORK TIMES "one of the greatest works about the First World War" --THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER (Britain) NUMBER ONE NEW RELEASE for Kindle, in "Biography & Memoirs ...World War I" for August-September 2017. Full Title is "STORM OF STEEL: THE EPIC COMBAT MEMOIR OF A GERMAN INFANTRYMAN, Translated in American English." STORM OF STEEL is possibly the greatest combat memoir of the modern era. It is a universal first-hand account of the terrifying calamity that was the First World War of 1914-18. It is told through German eyes, but appeals to all humanity, regardless of nation. This new 2017 edition is a first translation in American-English (not British-English), and is designed especially for American readers. This is a breathtaking, never-to-be-forgotten account of war. Combat sequences are riveting, detailed, and precise. The book appeals to both students of military history, and to general readers of quality literature about the human condition This war memoir focuses on daily life in the combat trenches, and its haunting pathos. Although narrated through German eyes, it could be the story of any army of any nation. Grisly death and woundings are commonplace. However, there are also noble deeds of heroism and self-sacrifice, of average men willing to fight and die for each other. It is a universal tale of humanity, both evil and good, sin and redemption. This new 2017 translation is completely in American English (not British English). It is the only translation of the early edition of 1921-22, when the author was still in the German Army. It is the closest English edition yet to the original combat. Previous translations were by British-educated writers, and based on editions revised long after the war. American audiences will appreciate this new translation in American English, rather than British English. It uses modern military terminology, and provides fuller descriptions of European history and geography. It especially brings to life the German author's unusual fascination with the American West. Indeed, the author Jünger stands as a symbol of repentance and forgiveness. He was one of the most decorated German soldiers ever, but later used his prominence to movingly advocate the reconciliation of former enemies. His narrative contains poignant passages about lost souls upon the battlefield that know no national boundaries. New scholarship in this all-new 2017 edition reveals that author Ernst Jünger became a daring anti-Nazi during the Second World War. In 1944, he supported the German officers who sought to assassinate Adolf Hitler, and only escaped arrest and execution through a stunning twist of fate. Instead, Ernst Jünger survived to be one of the greatest German novelists of all time, not passing until the grand age of 102 in 1998. BH Masterworks is an imprint of Boston Hill Press, a premier publisher of quality books in history. ******************************************************************* What people have said about STORM OF STEEL: "The greatest war memoir I have ever read. ... undoubtedly the most powerful memoir of any war. ... combines the most astonishing literary gifts with absorption with war in every detail. --THE DAILY TELEGRAPH NEWSPAPER (Britain) "[a] critical success ... a memorial to fallen comrades and an attempt to make sense of his war experiences ... revels in the glory of combat"--NEW YORK TIMES (USA) "one of the greatest works about the First World War, along with those by Erich Maria Remarque, Henri Barbusse, e.e. cummings, David Jones and Lucien Descaves" --THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER (Britain) "a surgically precise view of battle"--ECONOMIST MAGAZINE (Britain)

In this gripping narrative history, Al Roker from NBC’s Today and the Weather Channel vividly examines the deadliest natural disaster in American history—a haunting and inspiring tale of tragedy, heroism, and resilience that is full of lessons for today’s new age of extreme weather. On the afternoon of September 8, 1900, two-hundred-mile-per-hour winds and fifteen-foot waves slammed into Galveston, the booming port city on Texas’s Gulf Coast. By dawn the next day, the city that hours earlier had stood as a symbol of America’s growth and expansion was now gone. Shattered, grief-stricken survivors emerged to witness a level of destruction never before seen: Eight thousand corpses littered the streets and were buried under the massive wreckage. Rushing water had lifted buildings from their foundations, smashing them into pieces, while wind gusts had upended steel girders and trestles, driving them through house walls and into sidewalks. No race or class was spared its wrath. In less than twenty-four hours, a single storm had destroyed a major American metropolis—and awakened a nation to the terrifying power of nature. Blending an unforgettable cast of characters, accessible weather science, and deep historical research into a sweeping and dramatic narrative, The Storm of the Century brings this legendary hurricane and its aftermath into fresh focus. No other natural disaster has ever matched the havoc caused by the awesome mix of winds, rain, and flooding that devastated Galveston and shocked a young, optimistic nation on the cusp of modernity. Exploring the impact of the tragedy on a rising country’s confidence—the trauma of the loss and the determination of the response—Al Roker illuminates the United States’s character at the dawn of the “American Century,” while also underlining the fact that no matter how mighty they may become, all nations must respect the ferocious potential of our natural environment.
