The raid on Dieppe, code named Operation Jubilee, was the first invasion/large scale raid, of World War II. Jubilee featured the first use of Rangers, Churchill tanks, tanks in an amphibious assault,... More > P-51s and Typhoons and more. Approximately 6,000 troops were roped into the attack: they included 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British, 50 American Rangers and 24 French light infantry. Poor planning and Murphy’s Law led to an 85% casualty rate for the Canadians who landed! It was a rate far, far worse than the 10% suffered by the US Marines at Tarawa in late 1943 or the 15% that would be sustained by the Americans on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. But their sacrifice was not in vain and may have saved 10 times as many lives in Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944. This is an easy read. At the same time, it is thoroughly documented. Its tables and six page index makes it a great reference book. 174 pages, 5.5" x 8.5", 66 photos and maps.< Less

The scenario of "Mars Girl" evolves between thriller and SF. The New Yorker profiler Kelly takes part in an investigation into the disappearance of ten serial killers. They were kidnapped...

The latter works in a rather secret project, parallel to the one of the NASA… When I wrote "Mars Girl" in 2004 and published it on the Internet in 2005, I wanted to give a tribute to the modern popular culture through a short novel the style of which would be as young and direct as possible: very close to the action, putting the dialogs forward with informal conversations, a willingly fantasy-based approach to the characters and their environment, in order to create the literary equivalent of a video game, series or a pop-corn movie.< Less
