Mit dieser Entwicklung konnte niemand rechnen: In direkter Nachbarschaft der Erde ist eine fremde Kultur aufgetaucht - und zwar auf Trokan, dem ´´zweiten Mars´´, der in einer spektakulären Aktion gegen den Roten Planeten ausgetauscht worden war. Dabei ist die Situation im Jahr 1288 Neuer Galaktischer Zeitrechnung - das entspricht dem Jahr 4875 alter Zeit - angespannt genug. Die Arkoniden haben alte imperiale Träume wiederbelebt und das Kristallimperium etabliert. Seit Jahrzehnten beäugen sich die Machtblöcke der Arkoniden, der Liga Freier Terraner und des in sich zerstrittenen Forums Raglund voller Misstrauen. Perry Rhodan ist einer der wenigen, von denen sich Milliarden Intelligenzwesen in der Galaxis einen Ausweg aus der Krise erhoffen. Mit seinen unsterblichen Freunden hat sich der Terraner zurückgezogen und das Projekt Camelot aufgebaut. Die neue Zivilisation in direkter Nachbarschaft zur Erde, die sich im Schutze eines Zeitrafferfeldes entwickelte, muss recht schnell mit Schwierigkeiten rechnen, die ihre Existenz grundlegend gefährden. Während die Herreach ums Überleben kämpfen, landen auch Perry Rhodan und seine engsten Freunde auf dem Planeten. Sie stoßen auf ein mysteriöses Gebäude - und verschwinden. Perry Rhodan, Reginald Bull und Alaska Saedelaere gelangen auf die Brücke in die Unendlichkeit und in das ARSENAL DER MACHT... 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Florian Märlender.

When America declared war on Germany in 1917, the United States had only 200,000 men under arms, a 20th of the German army´s strength, and its planes were no match for the German air force. Less than a century later, the United States today has by far the world´s largest military budget and provides over 40% of the world´s armaments.In American Arsenal Patrick Coffey examines America´s military transformation from an isolationist state to a world superpower. Focusing on 15 specific developments, Coffey illustrates the unplanned, often haphazard nature of this transformation, which has been driven by political, military, technological, and commercial interests. Beginning with Thomas Edison´s work on submarine technology, American Arsenal moves from World War I to the present conflicts in the Middle East, covering topics from chemical weapons, strategic bombing, and the nuclear standoff with the Soviet Union, to ´´smart´´ bombs, hand-held anti-aircraft missiles, and the Predator and other drone aircrafts. Coffey traces the story of each advance in weaponry from drawing board to battlefield, and includes fascinating portraits of the men who invented and deployed them:Edward Teller, ´´the father of the hydrogen bomb´´Robert Oppenheimer, head of atomic bomb design at Los AlamosCurtis LeMay, who led the fire-bombing of JapanHerman Kahn, nuclear strategist and a model for Stanley Kubrick´s Dr. StrangeloveAbraham Karem, inventor of the PredatorAnd many others Coffey also examines the increasingly detached nature of modern American warfare - the ultimate goal is to remove soldiers from the battlefield entirely - which limits casualties (211,454 in Vietnam and only 1,231 in the Gulf War) but also lessens the political and psychological costs of going to war. Examining the backstories of every major American weapons development, American Arsenal is essential listening for anyo 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Holland.

In der Milchstraße schreibt man das Jahr 1463 Neuer Galaktischer Zeitrechnung - das entspricht dem Jahr 5050 christlicher Zeitrechnung. Seit einiger Zeit tobt der Kampf um die Polyport-Höfe, der mehrere Galaxien umspannt. Die sogenannten Polyport-Höfe sind Zeugnisse einer längst vergangenen Zeit, mit denen sich gigantische Entfernungen überbrücken lassen. Als die Frequenz-Monarchie aus einem jahrtausendelangen Ruheschlaf erwacht, beanspruchen ihre Herren, die Vatrox, sofort die Herrschaft über das Transportsystem und mehrere Galaxien. Die Terraner und ihre Verbündeten wehren sich erbittert - und sie entdecken die Achillesferse der Vatrox. Rasch gelingen ihnen entscheidende Schläge in der Milchstraße sowie in Andromeda. Allerdings sind damit nicht alle Gefahren beseitigt. Mit den Vatrox hängen zwei rivalisierende Geisteswesen zusammen, die weitaus bedrohlicher für die Menschheit sind.Gleichzeitig droht eine noch schlimmere Gefahr: der Tod von ES, jener Superintelligenz, mit der Perry Rhodan und die Menschheit auf vielfältige Weise verbunden sind.

In Arsenal of Democracy: The American Automobile Industry in World War II, award-winning historian Charles K. Hyde details the industry´s transition to a wartime production powerhouse and some of its notable achievements along the way. Hyde examines several innovative cooperative relationships that developed between the executive branch of the federal government, US military services, automobile industry leaders, auto industry suppliers, and the United Automobile Workers (UAW) union, which set up the industry to achieve production miracles. He goes on to examine the struggles and achievements of individual automakers during the war years in producing items like aircraft engines, aircraft components, and complete aircraft; tanks and other armored vehicles; jeeps, trucks, and amphibians; guns, shells, and bullets of all types; and a wide range of other weapons and war goods ranging from search lights to submarine nets and gyroscopes. Hyde also considers the important role played by previously underused workers - namely African Americans and women - in the war effort and their experiences on the line. Arsenal of Democracy includes an analysis of wartime production nationally, on the automotive industry level, by individual automakers, and at the single plant level.The book is published by Wayne State University Press.´´The definitive history of Detroit´s role in World War II.´´ (Detroit Free Press)´´This well-written book is one of the most important studies of industrial mobilization to appear in a long time.´´ (Michigan Historical Review)´´Masterful study of automobile makers and parts suppliers who shifted gears to achieve miracles of military production in World War II.´´ (Patrick Malone, professor emeritus, Brown University) 1.

A New York Times best seller. A dramatic, intimate narrative of how Ford Motor Company went from making automobiles to producing the airplanes that would mean the difference between winning and losing World War II. In 1941, as Hitler’s threat loomed ever larger, President Roosevelt realized he needed weaponry to fight the Nazis - most important, airplanes - and he needed them fast. So he turned to Detroit and the auto industry for help. The Arsenal of Democracy tells the incredible story of how Detroit answered the call, centering on Henry Ford and his tortured son Edsel, who, when asked if they could deliver 50,000 airplanes, made an outrageous claim: Ford Motor Company would erect a plant that could yield a ´´bomber an hour´´. Critics scoffed: Ford didn’t make planes; they made simple, affordable cars. But bucking his father’s resistance, Edsel charged ahead. Ford would apply assembly-line production to the American military’s largest, fastest, most destructive bomber; they would build a plant vast in size and ambition on a plot of farmland and call it Willow Run; they would bring in tens of thousands of workers from across the country, transforming Detroit, almost overnight, from Motor City to the ´´great arsenal of democracy.” And eventually they would help the Allies win the war. Drawing on exhaustive research from the Ford Archives, the National Archives, and the FDR Library, A. J. Baime has crafted an enthralling, character-driven narrative of American innovation that has never been fully told, leaving readers with a vivid new portrait of America - and Detroit - during the war. 1.
