Today, the landscape is marked by shell craters, pillboxes, and empty trenches. Mother Nature has tried to reclaim the terrain; the trees have grown again, and the ground is covered by lush green grass, but despite her best efforts, the scars on the landscape still remain, a constant reminder of the devastation and misery that was experienced here more than a century ago.

Once again the author explains that the narrative the British and French insisted on was madness. This book should be interesting to history buffs but required reading for people entering military intelligence.

The Babylonian influence upon its successors and even modern society knows no bounds. One of the leading civilizations of Mesopotamia, the Babylonians provided the fundamentals of mathematics, agriculture, architecture, metallurgy, and other influential and necessary fields required to develop other great civilizations such as the Greeks, Romans, and even contemporary nations like China and the US. Without them, no neoteric world could exist.

Fidel Castro was more than just a politician. His is a story that involves heroic voyages through turbulent oceans, affairs with young women from all over the world, spies, assassins, betrayal, conquest, riots, and battles. He was controversial, inimitable, cruel, courageous, stubborn, disrespectful of human rights, and utterly indomitable. But most of all, he never gave up. And this is his story.

This book gives you a view inside the political and military decision making of the Cuba communist regime. It is incredible to see how every major decision is controlled and dictated personally by Fidel Castro himself. The so-called Revolution is really nothing more than Fidel Castro's personal wishes and views

The first two chapters of this audiobook will provide a brief overview of the history of Cuba, giving depth and understanding to how the revolution came to be.

Not your usual canned history. It is apparent the author did an enormous amount of original research to put this book together. The reader is rewarded with a fresh view of the history of the century of relations between the US and Cuba.

Are you sick and tired of people saying that you should grow a thick skin? Do you find it difficult to distinguish someone else's discomfort from your own? Do you prefer taking your own car to places so that you can leave when you please? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover from this audiobook: the 11 traits of an empath, and much more.
