Dynamic, gripping, authentic Our World War recounts the extraordinary bravery of young soldiers fighting 100 years ago. Capturing the visceral reality of combat, Our World War hurtles straight to the frontline, using immersive camerawork and intimate documentary filming styles to bring the First World War to life in a bold and fresh way. With eye-witness immediacy, this is history as seen through the soldiers eyes. Based on the personal accounts of the 4th Battalion The Royal Fusiliers, The First Day tells the story of a single company of riflemen and machine gunners as they fought the opening battle of the war against an overwhelming German army. For their courage at the Battle of Mons in August 1914 they were awarded the first Victoria Crosses of World War One. In Pals , a young office-worker volunteers to fight alongside his work-mates and friends in a Pals regiment, in the summer of 1916. To his surprise he finds himself fighting two enemies the Germans and a system that requires him to kill a friend accused of desertion. War Machine explores the mechanisation necessary to end the war alongside the overwhelming desire of the soldiers to return home. Set in the Battle of Amiens, August 1918, and based on the personal account of a member of the Tank Regiment, it follows the tank commander and crew as they fight against the odds pounding their way across enemy territory.

A story too secret, too terrifying - and too shockingly intimate - for Victorian eyes. Dear Henry, I have been Simon Feximal's companion, assistant, and chronicler for 20 years now, and during that time my Casebooks of Feximal the Ghost-Hunter have spread the reputation of this most accomplished of ghost-hunters far and wide. You have asked me often for the tale of our first meeting, and how my association with Feximal came about. I have always declined, because it is a story too private to be truthfully recounted, and a memory too precious to be falsified. But none knows better than I that stories must be told. So here is it, Henry, a full and accurate account of how I met Simon Feximal, which I shall leave with my solicitor to pass to you after my death. I dare say it may not be quite what you expect.

1914, Tsingdao, Qing Chinese Empire The British HMS Triumph set sail from Hong Kong on a mission to cut off supplies to the German naval base in Tsingdao, Jiaozhou, China. Together with its Japanese allies, they would besiege the city until the Germans surrendered. Among those captured was a small boy, born of a Chinese mother and a German father. He was later adopted by the HMS Triumph's engineer and brought back to England to be raised as his own, never to know of his parents and his past. 2019, Hong Kong, People's Republic of China A hundred years had passed, and the arrival of a new soul, a girl called Elise that died in a hit-and-run, at the Regional Celestial Court of Hong Kong attracted long-dead raiders that were once Manchurian bannermen who served under the Emperor of Qing. They sought something that Elise had brought with her in death, a diary that would contain information they had sought high and low. In order to find out the secrets in the diary, the young master of the Celestial Court of Hong Kong took Elise and traveled to King Yama's court, the so-called headquarters of Hell, to read her family's history from the ultimate Book of Life and Death where the lives of every single person who had ever set foot on China were recorded. And it is on this wild journey spanning both time and space that the book would take you, where they would encounter British ghost ships, snake demons, long-dead Mongolian armies, lost Russian soldiers and all sorts of magical, paranormal beings and things that are beyond anyone's wildest imagination still roaming the world of living, invisible to our naked eyes. Listen to this modern time-traveling adventure that weaves larger-than-life characters from ancient China deities, demons, and real-life historical characters from colonial time Hong Kong about love and friendship now. 1.

The Locomotive of War , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 87...

A fresh and fascinating reappraisal of the first half of the 20th century from one of our foremost historians. 'War, comrades,' declared Trotsky, 'is a great locomotive of history.' He was thought to be acknowledging the opportunity the First World War had offered the Bolsheviks to seize power in Russia in 1917. Twentieth-century warfare, based on new technologies and mass armies, certainly saw the locomotive power of war geared up to an unprecedented level. Peter Clarke explores the crucial ways in which war can be seen as a prime mover of history in the 20th century through the eyes of five major figures. In Britain two wartime prime ministers - first David Lloyd George, later Winston Churchill - found their careers made and unmade by the unprecedented challenges they faced. In the United States, two presidents elected in peacetime - Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt - likewise found that war drastically changed their agenda. And it was through the experience of war that the economic ideas of John Maynard Keynes were shaped and came to exert wide influence. When the United States entered the First World War in 1917, President Wilson famously declared: 'The world must be made safe for democracy.' This liberal prospectus was to be tested in the subsequent peace treaty, one that was to be bitterly remembered by Germans for its 'war guilt clause'. But both in the making of the war and the making of the peace, the issue of guilt did not suddenly materialise out of thin air. As Clarke's narrative shows, it was an integral component of the Anglo-American liberal tradition. The Locomotive of War is a forensic and punctilious examination of both the interplay between key figures in the context of the unprecedented all-out wars of 1914-18 and 1939-45 and the broader dynamics of history in this extraordinary period. Deeply revealing and insightful, it is history of the highest calibre. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Clyde. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/030508/bk_adbl_030508_sample.mp3.

1917 - A Short Story: In the Shadows , Hörbuch,...

In the summer of 1914, the world erupted in what was at the time called The Great War. Machine guns, multi-ton bombs, poison gas, changed the face what war had been like for thousands of years. Rendered it a hell like nothing the world had ever seen. In a single battle, The Somme 1916, over a million soldiers were killed or wounded. By the time it ended four years and four months later more than 16 million people lay dead, empires collapsed and national borders had been realigned. It was thought that after such inhumane cruelty and barbarity as was seen on the battlefields of France, Belgium, Turkey, and other lands spanning the globe, that the world had come its senses. That humanity had finally fought The War to End All Wars. A short generation later The War to End All Wars was renamed, World War One. Because mankind had apparently learned nothing. This short story is not a history. It is not a precise representation of facts, places, dates, or large-scale events. It is merely the story of the First World War through the eyes of an innocent 19-year-old Canadian boy from the prairies of Alberta. He and the youthful soldiers with him had no concept of the scale of what they were involved in, no clue as to what lay in the heads of the generals and politicians that sent the orders down. He didn't read the newspapers, didn't philosophize on the meaning of it all. He had no "big picture" as the history books paint for us today. All he understood was that he had to obey his orders and stop the Hun. The only picture he saw was one of mud and sweat and rats and blood. He was a soldier whose orders had called his unit out of the comforts of Paris, and sent them to a field near a little Belgian town called Paschendale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Basil Sands.
