    "Veni, vidi, vici" - "I came, I saw, I conquered", he boasted: and no one could say he lied. Few other men in history have received so much praise and so much condemnation, and few other men achieved such power. Soldier, statesman, lawyer, priest, writer, social reformer, national leader, fortune builder, and organizer of the infamous Roman Games. Caesar's life was full of anomalies.

    "Captain Nelson is a little man who cannot boast of being handsome, but who will, in my view, one day astonish the world." So said Sir William Hamilton to his wife Emma, when Captain Nelson first sailed into Naples Bay in 1793. Even that shrewd Ambassador could hardly have guessed how great the "little man" would become.

    Often the story of World War II is told as if it began September 1, 1939, with Germany's invasion of Poland. But the empires involved in the war had been in conflict since Japan's invasion of China in 1937. When the Japanese attacked the American airbase at Pearl Harbor in 1941, the war encompassed the world, only to end with a new weapon for a new age. In this historic account of the war, interviews with eyewitnesses from all the major theatres of the war, captured in the British Movietone Archive, interlace memories of events, providing living testimony to those moments in time.

    France was in a state of chaos. Her Royal Family and most of her nobility had been swept away during her bloody revolution and terror stalked the land. The country was bankrupt, her armies a rabble of ill-fed, half-naked men. And then, within a few brief years, these same armies were sweeping across Europe in an all-conquering flood. As if by a miracle, a man had arisen who restored France to her former greatness, and more.

    Michelle Obama's legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama's equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women's rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished.

    The testimony that the author has gleaned for this audiobook from the 30-year record of the House Un-American Activities Committee focuses on HUAC's treatment of artists, intellectuals, and performers. This highly listenable and absorbing collection of significant excerpts from the hearings shows with painful clarity how HUAC grew from a panel that investigated possible subversive activities in a "dignified" manner to a huge, unrelenting accusatory finger from which almost no one was safe.

    When the first convoys of the ANZAC Expeditionary Forces sailed from Albany’s majestic King George Sound in November and December 1914, they carried with them hundreds of horses. Many had been loaded in ports elsewhere in Australia and New Zealand. Some came from unexpected places, including Juna Downs, a vast pastoral station in Western Australia’s remote Pilbara region.

    Martin Luther, a man born of peasant stock in Saxony, was destined to change the religious thinking of Europe. Although intended to be a lawyer, an inner religious conflict caused him to enter a monastery. Then, after three years of its strict discipline, he became a professor of the University of Wittenberg. His career as a reformer began when he nailed his famous "Ninety-Five Theses" to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on All Saints Day in 1517.

    The best-selling collection of patriotic poems, song lyrics, historical documents, and speeches, edited by and with an introduction by Caroline Kennedy. The America you will meet in A Patriot's Handbook is one that derives its strength from its diversity, and from the way our variety allows us constantly to reinvent ourselves. We are a country of poets, from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Langston Hughes; we are a country of songwriters, from Irving Berlin to Woody Guthrie. We are a country of "The Pledge of Allegiance", but also of "The Times They Are A-Changin.'"

On a quiet Sunday morning in sunny Honolulu, Hawaii, Japanese planes were dropping bombs on our fleet at anchor, our planes on the ground, and the town itself. Our entry into World War II had begun.

    Their stories needed to be told. And classmates working together, under a blanket of trust and friendship, was the only way to allow people to open up. It was a three year journey into the hearts and souls of America's youngest heroes to gather these important historical accounts, but it was worth every hour spent. Inside this book are the voices the first Annapolis graduates into a decade of war and they remind us that America is in good hands. They were walking to class on 9/11, wearing Naval Academy summer working blues, when the towers were struck.
