From Book 1: The First Crusade was an astonishing feat of endurance and faith - a punishing trek that saw tens of thousands of Europeans marching east to liberate Jerusalem.

Nearly nine hundred years later, in 1987, the same journey was attempted by just one man, one woman and - most importantly - two horses that set out from Chateau Bouillon in Belgium to retrace that epic quest.

Tim Severin’s aim was to bring Eleventh Century history vividly to life by following in the footsteps of Duke Godfrey de Bouillon and the earliest Crusader knights.

Starting out with the same special breed of Ardennes Heavy Horse used by Duke Godfrey's train, Severin followed the historic trail for eight and a half months.

Riding out of the green countryside of northern Europe into the increasing heat and parched landscape of the Near East, he and his companion covered more than 2,500 miles, past ruined Crusader settlements and ancient battlefields, through arduous mountain passes and across the barren Anatolian steppelands. Travelling through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Syria, Severin followed the precise route of those medieval voyagers as best he could.

At their journey's end was the jewel in the Crusader's crown itself - the holy city of Jerusalem.

Crusader is a dazzling synthesis of adventure, practical history and exploration, as Tim Severin assesses how far Duke Godfrey reasonably could have expected his heavy cavalry to travel each day, the problems they would have encountered in feeding and caring for their big chargers on the open road, and which of the alternative routes would have been the most likely path.

Forbidden Bookshelf (27 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A look at America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the capitalists who changed the world—setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history—from “a diligent and perceptive reporter” (Forbes).

In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the “lords of creation” who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America’s giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own image. They established their power and authority, ensuring that they—and they alone—would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce—creating the conditions for the stock market collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed.

As modern society continues to be affected by wealth inequality and cycles of boom and bust, it’s as important as ever to understand the origins of financial disaster, and the policies, practices, and people who bring them on. The Lords of Creation, first published when the catastrophe of the 1930s was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation—and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

World's Conquerors (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

. Genghis Khan was without a doubt one of the greatest conquerors of all times. He changed the course of history with his small horsemen army as he build an Empire that spread from China to Europe!

Genghis Khan, the myth, the man, the legend…

Major metropolises would become ghost towns upon his arrival. Grown men would shake in fear at just the mention of his name, not even wanting to speak it lest the doom he wrought came down upon them. He was referred to in hushed whispers as simply the “Scourge of God”. For the superstitiously inclined of the ancient world, the destruction and chaos Genghis Khan engendered was so thoroughly complete that they believed he must have been sent by God to punish them.

For them, the Mongols riding rapidly across the steppes towards their various homelands seemed to be nothing short of the horsemen of the apocalypse. When Khan arrived, the end was near. But who was Genghis Khan? We have heard many apocalyptic and dire descriptions, but who was he really? From his days as a poor and persecuted forager of the steppes to his years as world conqueror, this book follows all the twists, turns, and gallops of Genghis Khan’s life.

Inside discover:
• The life of Genghis Khan
• The power of his horsemen army and fear it left on its trail
• The lands he conquered to built his Empire
• Khan strategies to conquer the World
• The fall of his Empire
• His legacy

NO RICH AND NO POOR (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Most Americans (like people elsewhere) would LOVE to remove the rich from power to have real--not fake--democracy with no rich and no poor. The main reasons it hasn't happened are that 1) people don't know it's the vast majority who want it to happen (the mass media keep this a secret) and therefore think it's impossible and 2) people have doubts it would or could work and be desirable because they know how truly ugly and anti-democratic Communism was and is. This book addresses all of these concerns and shows how it really is possible and very desirable to make an egalitarian revolution to remove the rich from power and have real--not fake--democracy with no rich and no poor.

One can read in this book about how to help build an egalitarian revolutionary movement by doing something that can be done as part of one's routine busy life with a job or school work or child care to attend to, something that costs nothing, is legal and safe, and--yes!--FUN. And yet this activity is a tactic for implementing a strategy for removing the rich from power that is not (as so many others are) based on wishful thinking: it is as serious as a heart attack. This book also explains this strategy.

The premises of the book are based on the author's personal experience and the experiences of others.

This book illustrates how an egalitarian movement can understand what is happening in the United States today (for example why Americans are split right down the middle on "social issues") and use that understanding to build solidarity where the ruling elite have presently created bitter division.

If you read this book you will learn how to find out--for yourself!--that you are surrounded by people who agree with you in wanting a world with no rich and no poor. You will start seeing the world in a new way, a way that makes it seem very reasonable to talk about how you really want the world to be, instead of about which "lesser evil" you prefer, or what band-aid solution you'll grudgingly accept for what you know is a Big Problem that requires a Big Solution.

From Boys' Brigade to Brigadier (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: The books by Allan A. Murray are noted for their detailed research and historical accuracy. Strong narratives move the reader through military history events that are less well known or not previously written about with multiple layers cleverly integrated to reveal the overall context, the major events and the role of key protagonists.

The Series ‘From Boys’ Brigade to Brigadier’ spans Allan's career in the Australian Army from 1978 through to 2017; a total of 40 years. His interest in the military in his teenage years was, in part, driven by participation in the youth movement known as the Boys’ Brigade. In Allan's subsequent Army career, he progressed from a Recruit in the Citizen Military Force to a commissioned Officer in the Australian Regular Army then reached the rank of Brigadier, One Star rank, in the Army Reserve. The Series is a collection of stories, anecdotes and remembrances of people and events drawn from four years at the Royal Military College-Duntroon (Book 1); service towards the end of the Cold War (Books 2 and 3); United Nations service as a Peacekeeper in the Middle East (Book 4); supporting the lead-up to Australia’s involvement in East Timor (Book 5); and concluding with years in senior, leadership appointments (Book 6). The stories are set in Australia, the south Pacific, south-east Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the United Kingdom. They reflect Australia’s transition from Cold War engagements to a focus on defence of Australia and then back to expeditionary deployments. The stories derive from having commanded teams, sections, platoons, companies, a battalion and a brigade both in barracks and on major exercises. The characters are diverse, including from Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States.

This first book in the Series covers the period during Allan's career in the Australian Army associated with Officer training. Aspiring to become an Army Officer, Allan entered the Royal Military College-Duntroon in January 1979. This book recounts his experiences as a Staff Cadet. There are many funny anecdotes of young men ‘bishing’ and ‘bogging’ and perplexed by a society that engulfs them. And there are stories of difficult times from 'bastardisation'. Comparisons between life as a Staff Cadet in Kokoda Company before 1983 and 'Lord of the Flies' are not unreasonable. As one reader noted, this book ... "is a vivid record of the good and ill of Duntroon".

The Vikings and The Islamic World Series (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: This unique and pioneering work takes the reader through a fascinating and rich odyssey of the more than two centuries of links between the Vikings and the Islamic world. Whilst the term Viking conjures up notions of marauding warriors, in actual fact the Scandinavians in the Viking Age were accomplished farmers, craftsmen, traders and much else in addition to able warriors. The substantive links between the Vikings and the Islamic world resulted in very insightful writings by a number of Muslim travellers, scholars and many others, of the Vikings and many aspects of the Viking Age ranging from physical descriptions of Vikings and their places of habitation in Scandinavia and elsewhere to Viking customs, commercial activity and much else as addressed in this work. Moreover this work provides a vast range of archaeological in addition to historical evidence of the vast links between the Vikings and the Islamic world – a relationship that served to contribute to the Viking Age and served to enrich the Islamic world and the many lands and peoples that were also a part of this unique story. Islamic artifacts unearthed in Iceland, Faeroe Islands, Ireland, Britain, Scandinavia, Russia and the Ukraine all feature in this rich study of the Vikings as masters in trade between the Islamic world and much of northern and western Europe in the 9th and 10th centuries in addition to serving as intermediaries in trade between Byzantium and the Islamic world.

This major work (the full 3 volumes of which comprise over 200,000 words) is comprehensive in scope and rich in approach, drawing upon various aspects of archaeology, history and associate areas and the Cultural Interaction Theory and Approach (CITA) of the writer of this work that addresses gaps in knowledge and understanding of history, archaeology and heritage and serves to build bridges between people across society and across the world. This work is of great value in providing insight into a major yet largely absent branch of history and archaeology and provides rich case studies for a wide range of disciplines from archaeology, ethnography, philology and anthropology to micro-history, economic history, history of science and technology, cultural and inter-faith relations, dialogue of civilizations, cultural ecology, regional studies and international history. A range of illustrations including colour maps are featured in this work that deals with a vital and major part of British, French, Scandinavian, Russian, European, Islamic and world history and heritage in a very cohesive, lucid whilst also scientific and scholarly manner – of value to scholars, students and the public sphere the world over. This unique work is based upon thorough research and fieldwork from Scandinavia and Spain to Arabia.

Volume 1 includes coverage of field archaeology, various approaches used in this work including the Cultural Interaction Theory and Approach (CITA), the Viking and Islamic World on the eve of contact with one another, early contact between the Vikings and the Islamic world, Muslim and Scandinavian views of one another, the Vikings and Muslim Spain, Muslim Spain’s envoys to the Scandinavians, the Vikings in Russia and Ukraine, the formation of Russia, Vikings in Baghdad, Muslim contact with the Vikings in Russia including the writings of Ibn Fadlan and Ibn Rustah, the Vikings in the Mediterranean, and a range of many other fascinating issues that arise from this unique and exciting branch of history and heritage.

The writer is a qualified and acknowledged specialist historian, archaeologist, sociologist, conservationist and educationalist from the United Kingdom (educated in a vast range of branches and approaches to history, archaeology and related areas from a range of universities including London, Cambridge and Edinburgh - holder of 10 Master's degrees) who has undertaken fieldwork, studies,

The War in the West Trilogy (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:
The Second World War is one of the most significant conflicts in history, but for seven decades our understanding of the war has remained mostly fixed, framed by the accounts of participants and an early generation of historians. James Holland, one of the leading young historians of World War II, has spent over a decade conducting new research, interviewing survivors, and exploring archives that have never before been so accessible to unearth forgotten memoirs, letters, and official records. In The Rise of Germany, Holland draws on this research to reconsider the strategy, tactics, and economic, political, and social aspects of the war. The Rise of Germany is a masterful book that redefines our understanding of the opening years of World War II. Beginning with the lead-up to the outbreak of war in 1939 and ending in the middle of 1941 on the eve of Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of Russia, The Rise of Germany is a landmark history of the war on land, in the air, and at sea.
