The Unknown Warriors By Nicholas Pringle
Paperback: $27.23
Prints in 3-5 business days
WWII Book. They served across the globe; from the North African desert to the jungles of Burma, from the skies of occupied Europe to the icy Arctic Ocean. 'The Unknown Warriors', as Winston Churchill... More > named them, were the men and women who fought for the country during the Second World War. When an appeal for memories of wartime and what they thought of their country in the 21st century appeared in the local newspapers, many put pen to paper or dusted off their old typewriters to send a response. The Unknown Warriors is a collection of letters, packed full of opinions and dramatic war memories from Land Army Girls, Far East POWs, Desert Rats, and RAF aircrew, to name just a few, as well as those who served in essential civilian services and occupations. It is a timeless record of written testimony from men and women from Britain, Australia and New Zealand who served their country with bravery and determination in the 1939-1945 War.

Accordingly, the US gave preference... More > to its long-range atomic bombing force now known as SAC. The B-36 could hit targets thousands of miles away. -The B-29 and B-50 were replaced by B-47s while the B-36 replaced the B-52. The bombers' went supersonic with the B-58 Hustler. Finally, the ultimate expression of the strategic bomber was realized with the B-70 Valkyrie, a Mach 3 beauty with true intercontinental range. -The FB-111 replaced the B-58 while the new B-1 Lancer entered the fleet alongside the venerable B-52. An entirely new concept of bomber was developed as the B-2 Spirit. This relied on its stealth, but the sheer cost meant that only a handful of B-2s were built and the number of bombers continued to decline. -Yet, in the early 21st century, the strategic bomber was confirmed yet again in Iraq. This is the history of the US strategic bomber.< Less

eBook (ePub): $7.43
The Trump presidency is the symptom of something much bigger and it is not the first time it has happened. Our meaning-making has not been able to keep up with technology and globalization. We... More > navigate an increasingly complex world using models that were developed for industrialization—at a time when traditional industry is disappearing. This kind of mismatch between our real world and our understanding of it has happened before. The Reformation, the French Revolution and World War II were results of old epistemologies reaching their limit and new ones not able to emerge without a bloodbath. Given that we have the knowledge we have, can we avoid the bloodbath and go straight to the peace negotiations? Can we develop the culture, education, aesthetics, and institutions that we need in order to handle the complexities of the 21st century? Based on recurring historical patterns, moral and developmental psychology and complex-systems theory, Lene Rachel Andersen analyzes the current state of Western politics.< Less

‘I’m not scared of Hell – it’s just Heaven for bad people.’ Nine series into its 21st-century run, Doctor Who made history with Steven Moffat’s Heaven Sent... More > (2015). It was the show’s first single-hander, and the first ever to be shortlisted for an Emmy Award. Beyond that, it took Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor on a journey of self-discovery through a bespoke torture chamber, covering billions of years and the depth of a diamond wall. But Heaven Sent is more than just the Doctor’s own puzzle-box: it also serves as a decoder ring, allowing us deeper insight into both the Time Lord who fled Gallifrey and the persona of ‘the Doctor’ he adopted for himself. With a toolbox containing everything from Jungian psychology to video game design, this Black Archive (the second of three covering the final episodes of the 2015 season) seeks to take apart the Doctor’s Confession Dial and discover what he’s been hiding from his audience – and himself – for all these years.< Less
