Following their rampage through Southeast Asia and the Pacific in the five months after Pearl Harbor, Japanese forces moved into the Solomon Islands, intending to cut off the critical American supply line to Australia. But when they began to construct an airfield on Guadalcanal in July 1942, the Americans captured the almost completed airfield for their own strategic use. The Japanese Army countered by sending to Guadalcanal a reinforced battalion under the command of Col. Kiyonao Ichiki. The attack that followed would prove to be the first of four attempts by the Japanese over six months to retake the airfield, resulting in some of the most vicious fighting of the Pacific War. During the initial battle on the night of August 20-21, 1942, Marines wiped out Ichiki´s men, who - imbued with ´´victory fever´´ - had expected a quick and easy victory. William H. Bartsch draws on correspondence, interviews, diaries, memoirs, and official war records, including those translated from Japanese sources, to offer an intensely human narrative of the failed attempt to recapture Guadalcanal´s vital airfield. The book is published by Texas A&M University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Nevitt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/064498/bk_acx0_064498_sample.mp3.

What can a man expect from his Creator after losing his wife to a long, debilitating illness, then agonizing over raising two daughters on his own? Being challenged to pursue a new career path, not once, not twice but three times early in his adult life can also create anxiety about the future. Patrik Veillein, as a newly-married young man (with a dutiful but recalcitrant wife in tow), turns away from the comforts of small town life to help his uncle manage a road-side inn many miles away. And before he gets a handle on that new job, before he can learn all there is to run a roadside inn, the uncle suddenly dies. If he had stayed where he was born, in the village where he was well-liked and well-adjusted, he could have become a successful hunter, fur trapper, and quite possibly a successful artist. Moving to the Lonely Fox Inn meant leaving everything that was comfortable, predictable and even rational. Managing the Lonely Fox Inn meant meeting boisterous traveling salesmen, surly soldiers, mean-spirited mercenaries, and even an adventurer harboring a deep, dark secret. But, it also meant facing disappointment, disillusionment and even disaster. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Miller.

September 1942 marked the high point of Axis conquest in World War II. In the Pacific, Japan´s soldiers had seemed unstoppable. However, the tide was about to turn. On Sunday, 6 September 1942, Japanese land forces suffered their first conclusive defeat at the hands of the Allies. At Milne Bay in Papua New Guinea, a predominantly Australian force - including 75 Squadron (fresh from their action in 44 Days) - fought for two weeks to successfully defend a vital airstrip against a determined Japanese invasion. The victorious Australian army units were crucially supported by two locally based squadrons of RAAF Kittyhawks. The Battle for Milne Bay and victory for the Allies was a significant turning point in the Pacific War, but while it received worldwide publicity at the time, it has since been largely forgotten. It deserves to be remembered. Michael Veitch, actor, presenter and critically acclaimed author, brings to life the incredible exploits and tragic sacrifices of these Australian heroes in another fast-paced and thrilling tale. 1.

Barbara Ehrenreich´s first book of satirical commentary, The Worst Years of Our Lives, which was about the Reagan era, was received with best-selling acclaim. The one problem was the title: couldn´t some prophetic fact-checker have seen that the worst years of our lives - far worse - were still to come?Here they are, the 2000s, and in This Land Is Their Land, Ehrenreich subjects them to the most biting and incisive satire of her career.Taking the measure of what we are left with after the cruelest decade in memory, Ehrenreich finds lurid extremes all around. While members of the moneyed elite can buy congressmen, many in the working class can barely buy lunch. While a wealthy minority obsessively consumes cosmetic surgery, the poor often go without health care for their children. And while the corporate C-suites are now nests of criminality, the less fortunate are fed a diet of morality, marriage, and abstinence.Ehrenreich´s antidotes are as sardonic as they are spot-on: pet insurance for your kids; Salvation Army fashions for those who can no longer afford Wal-Mart; and boundless rage against those who have given us a nation scarred by deepening inequality, corroded by distrust, and shamed by its official cruelty. 1.
