Melania Trump: The Slovenian Side of the Story
This book is a tribute to “good old times” from recent history that shaped everybody that grew up in this territory, including current USA’s first lady. It was written in the same way as my father and many others did build houses around Slovenia and/or ex-yugoslavia to provide shelters for their families. For my English writing debut I gathered few of my dearest friend following my father’s footsteps for successful construction. We are all from the part of Slovenian that is now gaining popularity due to mrs. Melania and do in my opinion have the necessary skills to “construct” this little “house”, including the audio narrated version, which is as part of this book our gift to readers and their friends. You can find the link for free download inside the book, enjoy getting to know us better.

The Middle Ages: A History From Beginning to End

Middle Ages

What do you think of when you consider the Middle Ages?
Knights in armor and damsels in distress?
Vikings plundering monasteries?
Religious dissenters burning at the stake?
The dead bodies piling up as war, famine, and plague devastated Europe?

Think again.

While all these are part of the tapestry of the medieval era, the threads of politics, personality and war, culture, religion, education and the arts are vastly more intricate and fascinating. Think Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Peter Abelard, Geoffrey Chaucer and a riveting cast of thousands. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Western Europe had to reinvent itself and redefine its philosophical parentage.

Inside you will read about...

✓ The Early Middle Ages
✓ Advancing to Empire with Charlemagne
✓ The High Middle Ages
✓ The Flowering of the Church
✓ Times of Change
✓ The Late Middle Ages
✓ The End and the Beginning

As the Christian Church filled the void left by the loss of Roman authority, nations would emerge out of blurred geographical boundaries and dynastic kings would evolve from warlords. Rome gets the glory, and the Renaissance gets the glamor, but they are bookends for the dynamic centuries that are known as the Middle Ages.

Chilling Investigations Of Some Our Histories Most Unfamiliar True Crime Stories

Conviction is a very important part of providing justice. When a crime has been committed, it is essential for the perpetrator to be punished. In that way, although the family of the victims won’t always be able to make sense of what happened, they will still understand that nobody is above the law.

Publicizing the criminal’s modus operandi is sometimes good - the citizens will be well aware of their tactics and they can take better care of themselves. On the other hand, it can also be bad, because “would be” criminals and serial killers are also watching and they might like the idea. Such was the case of Eddie Seda.

Other than him, 4 others wreaked havoc in different places, at various times: There was the man who killed prostitutes in his own home (with his family in it), a man who claimed to have killed 600 hundred women when only 3 victims were verified, a father who brought his son to “hunt” some humans, and a husband who killed his wife when she learned of his lies.

How did they do it? And how did the law authorities catch them?

Get Your FREE BONUSES When You Grab This Book!

Every so often, an event happens that yanks the reigns of the ever-churning machinery of time and stops the world in its tracks. The repercussions of such an event may send shock waves that can be felt in every nook and corner of our sphere.

These events and happenings will vary in the actual magnitude, but their lasting effect can be immeasurable in the manner they influence humanity till posterity. One such event for instance, was the Holocaust.

During the course of which a staggering 11 million unarmed and helpless men, women and children were slaughtered mercilessly by the Nazis and their collaborators. And the most shocking and brutal fact was that this number included more than 6 million Jews.

Suffice to say that the actions of the Nazis almost pushed the Jewish race to certain obliteration. The fundamental logic behind this inhuman eruption of atrocities was the unfounded and groundless notion of Aryan Supremacy. The Nazis believed that the Aryan race was the purest and the most superior race in the world.

This book is a compilation of the heroic and poignant stories of such individuals, based on the true accounts of survivors of the Holocaust, whose courage, valor and compassion truly transcended the boundaries imposed by the tyranny of men. I thank you for purchasing this book and hope that it helps you appreciate to the fullest extent, one of the most significant pages of human history.

At the Coalface: Part 1 of 3: The memoir of a pit nurse

A heart-warming story of a woman who devoted her life to helping others. This is the memoir of Joan, who started nursing in the 1940s and whose experiences took her into the Yorkshire mining pits and through the tumult of the 1984-85 miners’ strike.

Joan Hart always knew what she wanted to do with her life. Born in South Yorkshire in 1932, she started her nursing training when she was 16, the youngest age girls could do so at the time. She continued working after she married and her work took her to London and Doncaster, caring for children and miners.

When she took a job as a pit nurse in Doncaster in 1974, she found that in order to be accepted by the men under her care, she would have to become one of them. Most of the time rejecting a traditional nurse’s uniform and donning a baggy miner’s suit, pit boots, a hardhat and a headlamp, Joan resolved always to go down to injured miners and bring them out of the pit herself.

Over 15 years Joan grew to know the miners not only as a nurse, but as a confidante and friend. She tended to injured miners underground, rescued men trapped in the pits, and provided support for them and their families during the bitter miners’ strike which stretched from March 1984 to 1985.

Moving and uplifting, this is a story of one woman’s life, marriage and work; it is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry, and smile.

Walter Mepham: Born March 14, 1898 Killed November 30, 1917, Cambrai, France.
New! Photo's and short story 2016: Then There was Will.
Walter Mepham: born 14th March 1894 killed 30th November 1917 Cambrai France: The Battle of Cambrai 1917, and the life of Walter and his family.
With references to the works and words of Conan Doyle, Bertrand Russell, and Winston Churchill, through the true lives of two brothers and their family in the First World War. Walter's family, from Napoleonic Times in Kent and Sussex, England, to London, and to France and to the Western Front, 1917.

Walter and his brother Harry Arthur, along with their father Mark Henry Mepham, fought with 'the other ranks' the 'poor bloody infantry' and only Harry survived to tell this story; and through him, to continue their history to the present day. The first decades of the 21st century; a hundred years since the start of the first world war where Walter and his father were killed; two hundred years since the Napoleonic Wars split Europe in bloodshed; seventy since the end of the second world war, Walter, and his brother Harry's family survive.

With his brother Harry Arthur, at the commencement of the new 21st century, the Cambrai Memorial at Louverval, remembrance is made. The title and subtitle of this book are taken from the back of the postcard pictured bearing Walter's image before joining-up in 1916, and at nineteen years old enough to be sent to the Western Front; killed Cambrai 30th November 1917. Born 14th March 1894 killed 30th November 1917, this is Walter, and Harry Arthur's re-imagined by their distant cousin, the author Malcolm Stow.

This is not an ordinary story. What Walter did, to be killed for his family, and country, was not remarkable. What Harry, and their mother Caroline Mepham (nee Wells) conspired to do, was treason, treachery, a capital crime throughout the first world war: desertion from post. Refusal. Conscientious Objection, and then to abscond from the field of duty.

What both brothers did was for their country was to save their family from extinction. Harry by surviving. Walter By dying. And then, by remaining alive The family story continued...

From the Battles of Waterloo 1815 with Walter and Harry's great grandfather to Cambrai, 1917; then through family relationships to 2017 from the new battlegrounds of Europe and the World, recounted with personal credence, with a passion for lasting peace.

New with photo-pictures (permissions requested) and added postscript.
