President Biographies (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

George Washington



* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *

Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.


George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role, he was introduced to the vast potential of the country that would one day be a nation. But when the death of his older brother made him the heir to Mount Vernon, Washington ascended to leadership in the military, political and social spheres of Virginia and the United States.

Inside you will read about...


✓ The Washington's of Virginia
✓ Europe Exports its Wars to the Colonies
✓ Washington at Mount Vernon
✓ An Englishman no Longer
✓ Washington at War
✓ The Father of His Country
✓ Return to Mount Vernon

As a member and later officer in the Virginia militia, he fought with the British army against the French as the two European powers struggled for control of the rich Ohio Valley. The British, who would refuse Washington a commission in their army, would later meet him in battle as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, fighting for independence against the forces of King George III. As a political leader, he would become the architect of the American government. As the master of Mount Vernon, Washington’s marriage to the wealthy Martha Dandridge Custis placed him among the elite of the Virginia aristocracy. His integrity established a model for subsequent generations to emulate. That few have managed to match his achievements is an indication of his influence and character. Meet George Washington, the man, and discover the identity of this remarkable leader.

Joseph Stalin: A Life From Beginning to End

Stalin


Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.

There can be no doubt that Stalin is one of the most notorious and controversial figures in history. He presents a puzzling paradox for both psychologists and sociologists; he was simultaneously revered, feared, loved, and hated during his lifetime. So much has been written about the life of Joseph Stalin and yet upon closer inspection, he still seems to present us with quite an enigma.
His cruelty towards his political opponents and dissidents is well known, but so are his efforts to go out of his way in lifting up the most downtrodden and desperate members of Soviet society, giving them the chance that Tsarist Russia would not.

Inside you will read about...


✓ A Change of Weather
✓ The Real Revolution Begins
✓ From Exile to Supreme Leader
✓ A Brave New Word
✓ Stalin’s Gambit
✓ Stalin Makes a Comeback
✓ Defending the Capitol

Stalin is known as a brutish dictator who struck a bargain with Hitler as if he was an old friend, yet it was this same Stalin who would almost singlehandedly save Europe from Nazi occupation. Who was Stalin? What did he really want? In this book we explore the complexities and nuances of the living, breathing conundrum who called himself Joseph Stalin.

Abraham Lincoln: A Concise History of the Man Who Transformed the World (One Hour History US Presidents Book 1)
Abraham Lincoln's determination to hold the North and South together would ultimately lead to the bloodiest war in American history, the abolition of slavery, and his own untimely death from an assassin’s bullet. But to see Lincoln solely as a tragic figure consumed with the strife of mid-nineteenth century America is to miss meeting him as a man who never allowed himself to be defeated by adversity or grief or turmoil. From his earliest days on the frontier, he endured the loss of his beloved mother and the demanding physical challenges of a rough-and-ready land where death came easily and education was rare; where ambition was rewarded if a man proved himself willing to work hard; where love was attainable, even for a man whose physical appearance was most charitably described as homely.

Inside you will read about...


✓ Born on the Frontier
✓ Lincoln’s Life in New Salem
✓ The Election of 1860
✓ The House Divides
✓ The Tide Turns
✓ The End
✓ The Legacy of Lincoln

Lincoln arose from poverty and ignorance to become a man of influence and eloquence whose speeches continue to resonate with a nation that aspires to meet his ideals. Lincoln had his detractors and enemies but throughout his years, he had a remarkable ability to remain unpoisoned by his foes and to retain compassion for those who opposed him. Meet Abraham Lincoln, the frontier president whose death made him a martyr but whose life made him a hero.

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.

Incredible True Holocaust Survivor Stories From World War 2: Accounts Of Holocaust History


Get Your FREE BONUSES When You Grab This Book!

If there is one thing that can be said about humanity, it is that we are true survivors. From wars to natural disasters, man has managed to bring himself back from the brink of destruction.

We have thrived over the millennia we have inhabited this earth; from the caveman to the modern civilization we live in today, we have seen and braved storms of all kinds – both natural and man made.

Of these many disasters we have faced head on, none can be more telling than the two World Wars. As the names suggest, the whole world felt the impact of these wars, shook from the intangible tremors that spread to the entire globe. The Second World War in particular, was something of a power play, where millions lost their lives because one group believed in the power of their hegemony over all the rest.

The Holocaust could, perhaps, be described as the most disastrous and devastating man-made storm the world has ever seen. Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the entire Second World War was nothing but state sponsored murder of those a dictator believed to be beneath him, simply because they were born different.

From Jews to homosexuals, millions were persecuted, and it took the western nations coming together to stop this madness. This ‘sacrifice by fire’ – which is what the name itself means – can be taken as a true example of humanity’s darker side, which seeks to control and make others submit to its will.

To put it simply, the Holocaust remains a stark reminder of how dark humanity can truly be. It reminds us that given a chance, man has the ability to change into something that is less than animal and it is this capability we have to constantly guard against.
