[まとめ買い] 西郷の罠
 龍馬ブームはここ数十年、衰えることなくずっとつづいている。
 龍馬の人気にくらべればあの西郷隆盛でさえ、その人気は龍馬の足元にも遥かにおよばない。
 はたしてこの人気と、人物の歴史的価値はどこまで比例するのか。
 その人気同様、西郷や大久保よりも歴史的価値において、龍馬がほんとうにすぐれていたのか。
 本来、敵同士の薩摩・長州同盟を実現したのは、たしかに龍馬の功績である。
 龍馬の歴史的評価は、その点にかぎれば何人(なんぴと)も否定しえない。
 しかし同盟成立後の龍馬にとっての維新とは、あくまで『船中(せんちゅう)八策(はっさく)』の『大政奉還』の段階にとどまったまま・・・・・・。    
 肝心の維新の実現方法は、あくまで『諸侯会議』という中途半端な朝幕連合政権構想にすぎない。
 本来、維新の趣旨であるべき真の『王政復古』にとって、もっとも肝要な『版籍(はんせき)奉還(ほうかん)』の具体策までにはとうてい到っていない。
 このため、龍馬は薩長による武力倒幕の障碍(しょうがい)となり、結局、暗殺されざるをえなかった。
 この時代はほかにも、日本三大藩のひとつ奥羽六十二万石の仙台藩による、奥羽鎮撫({

The Ones They Left Behind
The Ones They Left Behind is a sweeping, riveting, historically accurate account of post-Civil War America told through the journey of Harriman Hickenlooper, a Union veteran who sets off on a one-man peace march to heal the wounds of a bitter and divided country by retracing his steps on Sherman s March to the Sea. This time, instead of carrying a gun, he will carry a flag. Instead of marching for war, he will march for peace and find a reason to live and love again.

Advance Reviews:

"A moving story of a Union Civil War veteran who makes an apparently quixotic journey through Georgia in 1867 reprising his march with Sherman's army, this time in a quest for peace and reconciliation to knit a divided North and South into one nation again. It is a page-turner that keeps the reader on the edge of his seat until the final pages reveal the outcome. --James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Battle Cry of Freedom and Embattled Rebel: Jefferson Davis as Commander-in-Chief

It takes a unique courage to go to war since the odds of survival do not hail out to the brave. It takes a great deal more to make the journey home again. Antonio Elmaleh's insight and empathy concerning just such a saga are wonderfully invoked and marvelously illustrated in this volume, The Ones They Left Behind. I for one am still on that journey and can attest to its authenticity of emotion. --Thomas Steinbeck, Author, Silver Lotus

The Ones They Left Behind is a riveting and compelling read about a former Union soldier, Harriman Hickenlooper, who sets out on a personal odyssey to save his farm and heal the great wounds of the Civil War. Along the way, each person he encounters in this hostile environment reveals something of the bad and the good angels of our nature and forces Harriman to confront prejudice, fear, danger and violence. In his first novel, Antonio Elmaleh lifts our spirits as basic human decency prevails and a good man finds redemption and love. --Frank DeLuca, Senior Vice President, The Civil War Trust Washington, D.C.

Threads of The War, Volume I: Personal Truth Inspired Flash-Fiction of The 20th Century's War
“You are getting to be a budding WEB Griffin. Putting a bit of a face on real events in war.”
— Pat

Raw personal emotions. Human trial, triumph and tragedy. Can we experience War through the eyes of the soldiers and civilians who lived it?
See the sites, hear the sounds, and read short stories of war from a unique perspective: behind the eyes and in the mind of its participants. From the seats of a German cinema in 1915 and high over Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 to under the water of the port of Alexandria Egypt and on a rail line in East Prussia in 1945, the reader is carried from one front of war to another in short easily-readable, yet emotionally compelling, bursts.
Threads of The War is the first collection of flash-fiction in the Threads of The War series. If you like history, personal narrative, and have a short attention span, you’ll love Jeremy Strozer’s touching prose.
Grab a seat and a copy of Threads of The War to see war through the eyes of the men, women and children who lived and died in it.

Here's a snippet from: First Line of Defense

“Go left… toward the water!” Erich screams out.

The steering wheel lurches, first to the left, then to the right, and then back to the left as our little Kubelwagen (bucket car) bounces and bumps over the sandy beach at over 40 kilometers per hour.

“Ok, ok,” I reply, knowing that as much as I want to, I’ve little if any control over which way our improvised dune buggy of four drunken officers is headed. Realizing how pointless attempting to hold the steering wheel would be, I reach down with my right hand to grab the bottle of ’38 Barolo that Erich is guarding under his left arm.

Seeing that I’m going for the wine, Erich yells out, “Hold the wheel! HOLD THE WHEEL!” He reaches out with both arms to try to stabilize the steering wheel.

The Barolo is free!

I grab the bottle quickly, just in time to save it from hitting the floor when the Kubelwagen makes a hard landing from a jump off of a sand dune.

“I can’t hold it steady!” Erich yells as I press my foot to the brake and slow down the car.

Good, now I can find my bottle opener

The Kubelwagen comes to a halt on the upward slope of another sand dune.

Erich looks shaken. Sober, he is a commanding figure in his crisp Captain’s uniform. Drunk, he is a nervous, disheveled mess of a child with no balls.

“That was fuck’n great!” Jürgen slurs from the back seat.

“I’ve next swig,” Horst calls from behind me as I fumble with the bottle opener on the Barolo.

My fingers are numb from the bouncing steering wheel, thereby slowing down my already alcohol-impaired ability to do anything requiring fine motor skills.

“Damn it, Peter, I’m thirsty!” Horst yells as he kicks my seat from behind.

“I’m opening i….”

BOOOM BOOM BOOOOM BOOOM BOOM BOOOM BOOOOM

Before I can say the word it, a series of explosions rock the beach, spraying sand and dirt into the Kubelwagen from all directions.

What the hell is going on?

Jürgen cheers as each new explosion sends towering geysers of debris into the sky. “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!”

Dazed and confused, Erich looks around.

Horst calls out, “Give me the damn wine!”

Adalwulf: The Two Swords (Tales of Germania Book 1)
An honest man is easily cheated

You should not cheat a berserker

A thieving Chatti berserker named Adalwulf hopes to find a lord with the Marcomanni, but discovers a woman in distress instead. Defending the woman is no small task, and failing, he finds himself framed a murderer. Braving everything, he allies himself with Hulderic, a minor lord, and sets out to seek the captured woman, a lost sword, and a quest to stop a deadly war with Rome.

Will Adalwulf find a pack of brutal mercenaries before the Marcomanni are drawn into a conflict with Rome?

Adalwulf is a tale of epic historical fiction set in the Roman Era of Augustus.

Author interview

Question: What is different about the Adalwulf?
Alaric: Different? I guess many of the elements one would love in other historical fiction stories are all there. It’s a brutal tale with well-developed characters, no real heroes, and life is cheap. There are plot twists and surprises along the way. What is different, is the setting. My books generally take place in the places other authors rarely cover. This book series, like the Oath Breaker and Maroboodus, mainly takes place in Germania. Of course, I have a unique style of writing as well, and perhaps the battles are more gripping than some.
Question: What authors do you love?
Alaric: Bernard Cornwell. His work is on a different level form the others, and he covers time periods I love. I try to take my stories out of Britain, and into new areas, as I explained. Steven Pressfield is another of my favorites. Gates of Fire is a masterpiece. Then, some classics, like the great Henryk Sienkiewicz.

Sold Out (Nick Woods Book 1)
Author Stan R. Mitchell writes an epic, fast-paced story in his blockbuster hit "Sold Out," which should delight fans of Vince Flynn, Lee Child, and Brad Thor.

Book Description: Nick Woods, who now lives under the name of Bobby Ferguson, used to be one of our country's greatest snipers. A Marine who completed a bloody, top-secret mission behind enemy lines years ago, he now just wants to live in peace with his wife.

But Nick is about to get caught in a grand trap between an accomplished investigative reporter and a shadowy, CIA group.

After said reporter, Allen Green, publishes the details of Nick's prior, top-secret missions -- blowing the top off America's national security in the process -- both Nick and Allen find themselves in the sights of a CIA hunter-killer group.

This CIA group breaks the law and kills at will, and they'll stop at nothing to take down Nick Woods and the reporter who published the earth-shattering story he'd been chasing for years.

(A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Some of the earlier reviews mention editing shortcomings, as well as Nick being hard to like. I wanted to share with everyone that after reading the reviews, I decided to re-edit the entire book, make some plot changes, and generally listen to my critics. These changes were uploaded in the ebook and print editions on February 1, 2016, so reviews written prior to this date were made before the improvements had been implemented. Quite frankly, this was my first book and I fell short on a number of fronts in the older version. I really appreciate reviewers correctly pointing out the issues with the book, and I think with the benefit of plenty of distance from it, we've vastly improved it. Hope all the new readers enjoy the updated editions! Sincerely, Stan R. Mitchell)
