Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born on 30 November 1874. He was an heir of a noble family of the Dukes of Marlborough. His ancestor George Spencer, a member of the aristocratic Spencer family, was proud of his consanguinity with John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, so he has decided to choose Spencer-Churchill as his surname when he took the title of Duke of Marlborough in 1817. Winston Churchill´s father, Lord Randolph Churchill was a politician and the third son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough. Following the example of his father, Winston preferred to be known as Churchill. His mother was also born in a respected family, being a daughter of Leonard Jerome, a millionaire from the USA. Lady Randolph Churchill, gave birth to her son in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, two months before the expected date. When Winston was a kid, his grandfather had been appointed Viceroy, and Winston´s father, Lord Randolph, was hired as his private secretary. At that time the family had lived in Dublin and had used to stay there until Winston turned six. Dublin is also a birthplace of his younger brother John Strange Spencer-Churchill. Those years in Ireland are considered to be very important for the formation of the character of the future Prime minister because frequent parades by the Vice Regal Lodge (now the official residence of the President of Ireland) were the probable reason of his passion towards military matters. 1.

Since the Wright brothers made their famed flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, aviation has emerged as the indispensable arm of American military power. In this detailed and informative history, Charles J. Gross traces its development from the technological antecedents of the Wright brothers´ triumph through the air war for Kosovo. Drawing on examples from all periods and all service branches, he explains the roles of politics, economics, and technology in shaping air power in the US armed forces and assesses the actual impact of military aviation on warfare. Gross discusses major developments in aircraft, doctrine, training, and operations. He also provides discussions of airlift, in-flight refueling, military budgets, industry, and interservice squabbling. He provides assessments of Eisenhower´s New Look and MAD (mutually assured destruction); of McNamara´s effort to use commonality of equipment to cut costs and Kennedy´s buildup of the military; of the Nixon Doctrine and the failure of air power to resolve the long, drawn-out conflict in Southeast Asia; and of the growing reliance on American airpower in the post-Cold War world. Military professionals, scholars, civilian government policy makers and planners, members of the media who concentrate on defense matters, and interested members of the general public will all rely on this book as an invaluable guide. The book is published by Texas A&M University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Woods. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/065036/bk_acx0_065036_sample.mp3.

The Debt is a four-part novella series based on cowboy, ex-soldier Matt Stone. Matt Stone rode into Markleeville one hot dusk, with a wind at his back that promised summer thunder. He was tall and lean, with a narrow, clean-shaven face above the collar of his oilskin duster. His eyes were a hard pale blue, like chips of ice, and his black hair was long like an Apache´s and held back with a strip of leather. The coat was open, revealing a buckskin vest and the pair of silver Colts at his hips. He rode a huge, sleek black horse with a bullet scar showing in white hairs across one flank. Its name was Lucky. That horse had carried him through Gettysburg alive, and then taken him west, where he´d spent three years wandering, trying to get the echoes of battle out of his head. Lucky had a mind of his own, which could be good or bad. Good when Matt needed help getting his drunk self back to camp. Bad when the damn horse figured out how to untie his lead and took off wandering somewhere. This book is for mature audiences. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hannah Pralle.
