C-47 is a popular aircraft, carrying out missions every bit as strategically important and as dramatic for the aircrew as those of the fighters and bombers. The C-47's wartime operations paved the way for post-war military air transport. This book examines these popular and vital units.
This is the autobiographic account of the experiences of a woman, then 19-20, in the closing months of World War II. When it was first published, in 1991, the book was a revelation of past horrors in Hungary which, until then, had lingered on in the farthest reaches of the national memory as rumour and suspicion.
The Cynic's Word Book is a satirical dictionary written by American journalist and author Ambrose Bierce (1842-ca.1914), a man whose savage wit earned him the nickname ?Bitter Bierce?. The targets for Bierce's mockery are wide-ranging: from lawyers (?one skilled in circumvention of the law?) to the institution of marriage (?a household consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves, making in...
When Raymond of Saint-Gilles died in the castle of Mons Peregrinorum, in what is today Lebanon, he left behind a realm that had grown from a fortress, a single town and a half share of a monastery to fourteen counties, covering much of southern France and across the Mediterranean to a significant holding on the Syrian and Lebanese coast. To understand Raymond's legacy and achievement, we have to...

In this book the author contends-and this is not a very widely held view-that Byzantium deserves to be considered an influential part of the broader development of Europe, even though its borders also reached out to the vast territories of Anatolia and the Caucasus, and to the eastern Mediterranean.
This volume brings Byzantium - often misconstrued as a vanished successor to the classical world - to the forefront of European history Focuses on the identity, ethnicity, and culture of the Byzantine people Deconstructs stereotypes surrounding Byzantium Beautifully illustrated with photographs and maps.
Averil Cameron refutes an argument by some scholars that Christians did not dialogue after a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD. Cameron shows that in late antiquity and throughout Byzantium Christians debated and wrote philosophical, literary, and theological dialogues, and she makes a case for their centrality in Greek literature.
Asking how Christianity succeeded in becoming the dominant ideology in the unpromising circumstances of the Roman Empire, the author turns to the development of Christian discourse over the first to sixth centuries AD, investigating its essential characteristics, its effects on existing forms of communication, and its eventual preeminence.
By focusing on a single year not overshadowed by an epochal event, this title provides a fresh look at Mediterranean civilization in the midst of enormous change - as Christianity takes hold in rural areas across the empire, as western Roman provinces fall away from those in the Byzantine east, and as power shifts from Rome to Constantinople.
