War can get a fellow killed. The fearless draconians of the War of the Lance have retired from the field of battle to a pleasant valley in the Kharolis Mountains. Well, it would be pleasant, if it weren't for some dwarves, whose irritating feuding prevents the draconians from realizing their greatest hope -- the ability to continue their doomed race. When the dwarves discover a map leading to a fortune buried in the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin, the draconians are swept up in a feverish race for treasure. Little do both sides realize that they are part of the strange and terrible destiny descending upon Krynn during the Summer of Flame. A desinty that includes the children of Chaos . . . the fire dragons! The Doom Brigade is the first installment in The Chaos War series, stories set during the war of the Dragons of Summer Flame, the New York Times best-selling novel co-authored by Margaret Weis.

In the future, earth's warriors have conquered the heavens. But on a distant world, Humanity is in chains ... Many millennia ago, the human race was enslaved by the An -- a fearsome alien people whose cruel empire once spanned the galaxies, until they were defeated and consigned to oblivion. But a research mission to the planet Ishtar has made a terrifying -- and fatal -- discovery: the Ahanu, ancestors of the former masters, live on, far from the reach of Earth -- born weapons and technology ... and tens of thousands of captive human souls still bow to their iron will. Now Earth's Interstellar Marine Expeditionary Unit must undertake a rescue operation as improbable as it is essential to humankind's future, embarking on a ten-year voyage to a hostile world to face an entrenched enemy driven by dreams of past glory and intent once more on domination. For those who, for countless generations, have known nothing but toil and subjugation must be granted, at all costs, the precious gift entitled to all of their star-traveling kind: freedom!

A magnificent history of the opening years of the Civil War by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Bruce Catton The first book in Bruce Catton’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Army of the Potomac Trilogy, Mr. Lincoln’s Army is a riveting history of the early years of the Civil War, when a fledgling Union Army took its stumbling first steps under the command of the controversial general George McClellan. Following the secession of the Southern states, a beleaguered President Abraham Lincoln entrusted the dashing, charismatic McClellan with the creation of the Union’s Army of the Potomac and the responsibility of leading it to a swift and decisive victory against Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. Although a brilliant tactician who was beloved by his troops and embraced by the hero-hungry North, McClellan’s ego and ambition ultimately put him at loggerheads with his commander in chief—a man McClellan considered unworthy of the presidency. McClellan’s weaknesses were exposed during the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day in American military history, which ended in a stalemate even though the Confederate troops were greatly outnumbered. After Antietam, Lincoln ordered McClellan’s removal from command, and the Union entered the war’s next chapter having suffered thousands of casualties and with great uncertainty ahead. America’s premier chronicler of the nation’s brutal internecine conflict, Bruce Catton is renowned for his unparalleled ability to bring a detailed and vivid immediacy to Civil War battlefields and military strategy sessions. With tremendous depth and insight, he presents legendary commanders and common soldiers in all their complex and heartbreaking humanity.

You think you've had a bad day? 4 October 1843 Van Diemen's Land; a British Prison Colony: Sir John Turner Flinn used to be a navy intelligence officer but at the age of fifty he's been sentenced to transportation beyond the seas for the term of his natural life. How can he retain the respect of his sons and restore his honor? The new Governor learns his "sinecure" is a "poison chalice" as the Colony's bankrupt and his reform agenda unworkable. The new police chief, Frank Burgess is worried; he's supposed to clean up a force that's manned by serving convicts and brutality and graft is a way of life. Long serving colonial auditor, George Boyes is fed up with the worse thieves in the Colony; the Men at the Top. Bushrangers, Marty Cash and Lawrie Kavenagh pace the death cell dreading the gallows. They broke out of Port Arthur Prison, went on a rampage but now they must pay. Lawrie says he only escaped to go to Mass. Convicted Irish Patriot, Richard Jones is a man the System can't break. His plan to seize the prison ship and to sail to New York, would have worked but for betrayal. He faced trial for piracy in Hobart but out-witted "the System" and beat the charge. However, he must finish his original sentence and he's now in solitary and recovering from a savage flogging inflicted for leading a protest about the absence of Catholic prison chaplains. Dreams of liberty and dignity in America are the only thing keeping him going. Pub owner and widow, Mary Anne Smith is a beautiful, passionate but brutalized former convict; she's lonely and yearns for a strong but gentle man. The only person who's had a good day is magistrate, John Giles Price. He's a man with a very dark past and he's planning an even darker future... "Part an Irishman" represents the first installment of the Regiment Trilogy and is based on records and newspaper articles from the time. The book's for adults as it contains a lot of sex and violence. How the Story Came About. "John Turner Flinn" dropped into my lap one Christmas holiday in Alice Springs NT. It was too hot to do anything but watch videos and we became engrossed in a crime series set in the 1920's. My girlfriend's granddad was a gangster in Melbourne in that era so we looked him up on "Trove." After seeing his many press cuttings, we decided to dig into earlier generations and uncovered an array of petty thieves, Swing Rioters, ships' captains, a Chinese gold miner and a lot of wayward women. I became jealous as my own family tree yielded a staid collection of Lancashire refugees from the Irish "Great Hunger" of '47. Envy led to a series of "jokes" about "checking change" and "watching pockets"; the response went from polite smiles to "probably a lot of your bloody relatives came here in chains as well!" I decided to check this and the first "Flynn" I saw on a convict list became my hero; John Turner Flinn. His record revealed he'd been an "officer and gentleman" in the Navy and contained a strange reference to the "Regiment" so I "Googled" further and found: His case was in the "Newgate Calendar" so his trial was big news. He gave evidence at Queen Caroline's trial for adultery in 1820. The trial was example of public crucifixion of another "People's Princess." He was a "spook" in the Napoleonic War; and then The coup de grace; rumors that his wife, Edwardina Kent was the secret daughter of Queen Caroline and the Prince Regent. If true, this gave her a better claim on the throne than Victoria. With material like this, I felt a duty to finish this novel; hope you enjoy it.."

They joined for their country. They fought for each other. When war breaks out in 1914, Mark Fenner and his Sheffield friends immediately flock to Kitchener's call. Amid waving flags and boozy celebration, the three men - Fen, his best friend Locky and self-assured Frank, rival for the woman Fen loves - enlist as volunteers to take on the Germans and win glory. Through ramshackle training in sodden England and a stint in arid Egypt, rebellious but brave Fen proves himself to be a natural leader, only undermined by on-going friction with Frank. Headed by terse, tough Sergeant Major Bold, this group of young men form steel-strong bonds, and yearn to face the great adventure of the Western Front. Then, on one summer's day in 1916, Fen and his band of brothers are sent to the Somme, and this very ordinary hero discovers what it means to fight for your life. Stirringly told from the down-to-earth view of everyday soldiers, Covenant with Death is acclaimed as one of the greatest novels about war ever written. Now with a new foreword by Louis de Bernières, author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
