The War of Worlds By James Inglis
A piercing critique, a brilliant slogan, a stirring¬†oration, an inspiring song or verse‚ÄĒall can¬†be as effective as bullets and bombs in times¬†of conflict. This anthology gathers some of¬†the most eloquent, moving and memorable¬†speeches, writings, rallying calls and anthems¬†from almost three millennia of warfare, in one¬†fascinating and compelling volume.

The Clash of History's Titans By Joseph Cummins
Petty jealousy, resentment and competition are driving forces behind human actions.
And when the people involved wield power and influence, such rivalries can affect not just those around them but the entire community, society or country. These enthralling accounts chronicle ten of the fiercest, most influential feuds of all time, and their momentous, far-reaching repercussions.

Fame & Infamy By Ed Wright
Such is human nature and so strong are the temptations of wealth, sex and power that even the most intelligent, talented and seemingly upright citizens can be relied upon to fall from grace now and again. Artists, writers, composers, politicians and preachers all feature in this vastly entertaining survey of the most bizarre, outrageous and calamitous scandals in history.

Obscure Events that Shaped the World By Joseph Cummins
Veiled by time, distance or neglect and consequently omitted from conventional histories, the extraordinary episodes described in these pages have nevertheless altered the course of history, frequently in ways unintended or unforeseen. Ranging through a thousand years and to the far corners of the globe, they offer a fresh and fascinating perspective on our past.

Turning the Tide of Battle By Joseph Cummins
Throughout history, and often when all hope had seemed lost, innovative military commanders have turned the tide of battle to achieve historic victories. Spanning 2000 years, from the Greco-Persian Wars to the D-Day landings, these stories highlight the ingenuity and daring of some of history's most brilliant leaders, as well as the ever-changing face of warfare.

Good Girls don't make History By Jan Stradling
Cutting a swath through male-dominated social mores, laws and traditions, the twelve women featured in these pages all left an indelible mark on the world, in remarkable and diverse, though seldom admirable, ways. Their motivations may disturb and perplex, their actions astound and even appal, but their stories are gripping, moving
and thought-provoking.
