German Infantryman vs British Infantryman David Greentree 2015-10-20 When Hitler's forces poured into France and the Low Countries in 1940, the uneasy peace of the 'Phoney War' was shattered, and Europe was ripped apart by another Blitzkrieg. Forming the backbone of the German advance were the mobile, well-equipped Schützen (Rifles), motorized infantry who embodied the essence of the fluid, swift warfare that had characterized World War II thus far. Facing them were infantrymen of the British Expeditionary Force, units of considerable fighting quality who had nevertheless had no special training or doctrinal instruction to conduct combined-arms warfare in conjunction with armor. This study investigates the clash between the two adversaries at small-unit level, recreating the ferocity of the fighting on the front lines of the Battle of France. It assesses the training, organization and unit ethos of both sides in the context of a new type of mobile warfare, and reveals the extraordinary difficulties encountered by infantry units in trying to remain in contact with their armored and mechanized formations. Drawing on first-hand combat reports and iluminative illustrations, it focuses on three key clashes at Arras, Calais and Merville and goes onto explore the important lessons learned by both sides about the nature of combined-arms warfare.

Slave Stealers Timothy Ballard 2018-09-04 Follow two abolitionists who fought one of the most shockingly persistent evils of the world: human trafficking and sexual exploitation of slaves. Told in alternating chapters from perspectives spanning more than a century apart, read the riveting 19th century first-hand account of Harriet Jacobs and the modern-day eyewitness account of Timothy Ballard. Harriet Jacobs was an African-American, born into slavery in North Carolina in 1813. She thwarted the sexual advances of her master for years until she escaped and hid in the attic crawl space of her grandmother's house for seven years before escaping north to freedom. She published an autobiography of her life, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, which was one of the first open discussions about sexual abuse endured by slave women. She was an active abolitionist, associated with Frederick Douglass, and, during the Civil War, used her celebrity to raise money for black refugees. After the war, she worked to improve the conditions of newly-freed slaves. As a former Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security who has seen the horrors and carnage of war, Timothy Ballard founded a modern-day "underground railroad" which has rescued hundreds of children from being fully enslaved, abused, or trafficked in third-world countries. His story includes the rescue and his eventual adoption of two young siblings--Mia and Marky, who were born in Haiti. Section 2 features the lives of five abolitionists, a mix of heroes from past to present, who call us to action and teach us life lessons based on their own experiences: Harriet Tubman--The "Conductor"; Abraham Lincoln--the "Great Emancipator"; Little Mia--the sister who saved her little brother; Guesno Mardy--the Haitian father who lost his son to slave traders; and Harriet Jacobs--a teacher for us all.

Radio Frequency and Microwave Electronics Illustrated Matthew M. Radmanesh 2001 Foreword by Dr. Asad Madni, C. Eng., Fellow IEEE, Fellow IEE Learn the fundamentals of RF and microwave electronics visually, using many thoroughly tested, practical examples RF and microwave technology are essential throughout industry and to a world of new applications-in wireless communications, in Direct Broadcast TV, in Global Positioning System (GPS), in healthcare, medical and many other sciences. Whether you're seeking to strengthen your skills or enter the field for the first time, Radio Frequency and Microwave Electronics Illustrated is the fastest way to master every key measurement, electronic, and design principle you need to be effective. Dr. Matthew Radmanesh uses easy mathematics and a highly graphical approach with scores of examples to bring about a total comprehension of the subject. Along the way, he clearly introduces everything from wave propagation to impedance matching in transmission line circuits, microwave linear amplifiers to hard-core nonlinear active circuit design in Microwave Integrated Circuits (MICs). Coverage includes: A scientific framework for learning RF and microwaves easily and effectively Fundamental RF and microwave concepts and their applications The characterization of two-port networks at RF and microwaves using S-parameters Use of the Smith Chart to simplify analysis of complex design problems Key design considerations for microwave amplifiers: stability, gain, and noise Workable considerations in the design of practical active circuits: amplifiers, oscillators, frequency converters, control circuits RF and Microwave Integrated Circuits (MICs) Novel use of "live math" in circuit analysis and design Dr. Radmanesh has drawn upon his many years of practical experience in the microwave industry and educational arena to introduce an exceptionally wide range of practical concepts and design methodology and techniques in the most comprehensible fashion. Applications include small-signal, narrow-band, low noise, broadband and multistage transistor amplifiers; large signal/high power amplifiers; microwave transistor oscillators, negative-resistance circuits, microwave mixers, rectifiers and detectors, switches, phase shifters and attenuators. The book is intended to provide a workable knowledge and intuitive understanding of RF and microwave electronic circuit design.

The Red Rose and the White John Sadler 2014-01-14 If Richard III had not charged to his death at Bosworth, how different might the history of Britain have been? Beginning in 1453 and ending in 1487, The Red Rose and the White provides a gripping overview of the bitter dynastic struggle for supremacy that raged between the houses of York and Lancaster for thirty years, culminating in the dramatic events on Bosworth Field in 1485.

Photographs, maps and portraits of the principal characters help to bring the period to life, whilst the fast-paced narrative conveys a sense of what it was actually like to fight in battles such as Towton or Tewkesbury the effect of the arrow storm and the grim realities of hand-to-hand combat with edged and bladed weapons. Skilfully weaving in political and social events to place the conflict in its context, The Red Rose and the White is a fascinating exploration of the turbulent period that would change the course of British history forever.

Searching for a cure for his Legion, he is forced to consider – was the great ritual somehow flawed from the very beginning? The answer may lie within the mysterious artefact known as the Athenaeum of Kallimakus, a grimoire of forgotten lore which is reputed to contain the exact words of the lost Book of Magnus… or, perhaps, even a transcription of the primarch’s deepest and most secret thoughts.
Athletico Mince Bob Mortimer 2017-01 In the first book inspired by their wildly popular podcast, Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson have tried their hardest to produce an authoritative guide to the past, present and future world of football. But, as in the podcast, they tend to get a bit side-tracked - as well as bringing you some (fairly) genuine football facts 'n' stats, Bob and Andy get waylaid with speculation about the lifestyle of baked bean-loving, yellow snake-owning former England boss Steve McClaren. There's also input from the Secret Soccer Superstar - a former player who lifts the lid on what it's really like to be a top, top pro. In keeping with the occasional non-football vibe of the podcast, there's also lifestyle hacks, domestic appliance tips and meat advice, as well as Bob and Andy's fact-files on each other and a definitive guide to lifting up celebrities.In summary, it's a bit of a mess. BUT, it's a beautiful, glorious, hilarious mess... and if you're not reduced to at least one convulsion while reading it, Bob and Andy are going to be very disappointed with you indeed. In fact, they might come round to your house and force you to KISS THE ALDERMAN!
