Achtung-Panzer! Heinz Guderian 1995 This is one of the most significant military books of the twentieth century. By an outstanding soldier of independent mind, it pushed forward the evolution of land warfare and was directly responsible for German armoured supremacy in the early years of the Second World War. Published in 1937, the result of 15 years of careful study since his days on the German General Staff in the First World War, Guderian's book argued, quite clearly, how vital the proper use of tanks and supporting armoured vehicles would be in the conduct of a future war. When that war came, just two years later, he proved it, leading his Panzers with distinction in the Polish, French and Russian campaigns. Panzer warfare had come of age, exactly as he had forecast. This first English translation of Heinz Guderian's classic book - used as a textbook by Panzer officers in the war - has an introduction and extensive background notes by the modern English historian Paul Harris.

The Butterfly Paradox Paul W. Coca 2016-09-05 In 1990 I had several experiences that inspired me to document my nightly dream journeys. I had recently learned about lucid dreaming and after having my first fully lucid dream I became an instant devotee to the art and practice of conscious dreaming. Like others who have had a taste of waking awareness in a dream, it was an eye opening experience that reinvigorated and reinvented the way I perceived the world. After I filled several dream journals with my oneironautic expeditions, I was inspired to take key themes and experiences from my journals and weave a narrative to tie them together in the form of a storybook, The Butterfly Paradox was written and illustrated over the course of 20 years. It is my hope that in sharing these experiences, others will resonate with the motifs that unite us at the most sublime levels. Over the years of connecting with other dreamers, I have learned that we all share archetypal themes that surface in our dreaming minds. We subconsciously dress these archetypal forms into varied costumes and set pieces for the theatrical productions of our dreams. In dreams E=MC2; Emotions take on Mass giving the dreaming landscape its beauty and terror at the Speed of Thought. It's a magical place where one is free the ride the whims of the mind. So, take a step behind the curtain and enjoy a backstage pass to the storehouse of consciousness-a plunge into the Alayan Sea.The Butterfly Paradox is a haunting yet whimsical fable about a child's extraordinary adventure to a place where one's state of mind creates one's reality. Aaron Goodnight, a boy whose parents are separated, finds his way to the strange bubble world of Port Utolea where he befriends an enchanting girl named Leela Watermoon. She invites him to the Royal Butterfly Festival but things do not go as planned. Together they encounter several frightening obstacles and must learn that the path to transformation is through the very things they fear the most.
