But on September 3rd 1939 Britain declared war on Germany and everything changed. With Britain standing alone Eileen was determined to help defend her country. She joined the RAF as a Clerk Special Duties and found herself in the top secret Filter Room – a place so hush-hush she had to sign the Official Secrets Act to work there!
Eileen’s War tells the remarkable story of living through the Blitz, acting as a guide in a liberated Nazi concentration camp and hunting down V2 rocket launchers!
A children’s version of the award-winning memoir One Woman’s War.
On her third failed marriage, thirty-four-year-old Sidney McQueen regrets her PhD in Psychology wasn’t useful in choosing husbands. She feels better suited choosing horses. When her divorce attorney advises her to disappear for a while, she heeds the warning. But can she disappear without a trace when her soon-to-be ex-husband, a powerful attorney with ties to Mexican drug cartels, is hell-bent to find her? He wants back what belongs to him—and it’s not just Sidney he’s after.
Forty-five-year-old Markus Yeager, former Marine turned CIA operative, has a top-secret past. Physical and emotional scars cause him to retreat to the small, west Texas town of Alpine to be near an old friend, the one person he trusts. Flashbacks haunt him. His purposefully crafted quiet life is up-ended when Sidney pulls into town, horse trailer in tow.
People from Sidney’s past start turning up dead. Terrified, she questions whether the refuge she sought at Yeager’s remote ranch is enough to protect her from the man she refers to as “The Devil.” Her life-or-death situation draws Markus back into the violent world he thought he’d left behind, a world of weapons, drugs, money, and dangerous traffickers who’d put a bullet in your head while they mouthed their Hail Marys. Markus pursues and confronts the enemy head-on, but first he must confront the demons hounding his mind.
Thrown together in a cauldron boiling over with emotional tension and physical danger, Markus and Sidney allow their tentative bond to feed their individual needs. Once the murderer is apprehended, they breathe a collective sigh of relief, and their relationship, once governed by mutually imposed rules, intensifies. However, when it’s discovered that the one in custody may not be the killer, chasing the truth becomes a frantic race against a deadly predator.
IF THE DEVIL HAD A DOG— an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride packed full of heart-pounding suspense.
The ONE GLOBE where we live our lives today was built upon wars. No blames for all the fighting and conquering per se though, because it is the way of nature.
When there’s a victor or a survivor, there’s always a victim too; mommy lions do not hunt and kill poor animals for fun, but to survive, to feed their babes. For the record, ancient Roman Empire, from which we owe so much for today’s our way of life, was built upon the hard works of the slaves, and when the slaves were freed and given the citizenship, the country collapsed. Since all the slaves were gone, who’d do all the necessary 3D works?
No matter what country we are from, we all have a proud moment in our own country’s history, and the moment wouldn’t have existed if there hadn’t been any victims for the glory of our national history. We are just happy and proud when we are the victors and survivors while we get so mad at other victors calling them invading robber bastards when we are the victims. Likewise everything in our world has different points of view. It’s like it is adultery if other people do it, but a romantic love story if I do it.
So if we really want peace for our present and future, we’d better stop blaming each other based on our sentiment from the past fights and wars because we all have the same good and bad sides while we see only the side we want to for our convenience.
No need to feel ashamed, because that’s exactly who we are by nature, we the people with complex emotion which is oftentimes not that reasonable. So we live together with other people who can help us open our eyes and ears.
Writing is a tough and time consuming work, but I love this work because it can only be completed and meaningful when it is done not only by the writers, but by the readers participating to motivate and encourage the writers; WE MAKE IT TOGETHER. So together we will discuss to know what war has meant to us in both small and large scales. We will learn in detail about the patterns of wars in the past and what they will look like in our time in the coming years.
We will see that simple changes in tactics of war have always been the decisive causes of the very changes of our global orders after all. The first volume starts with the ancient ground force evolution based on a tiny piece of new horse gear called stirrup so as to learn how it destroyed an era and built another, so-called the Middle Ages under feudalism famed for chivalry, faith and romance.
Second volume is about the development of various shooting maneuvers later to fit perfectly in the naval operations for the global expedition to create the very first “global” order that lasted for more than one and a half centuries from 1494 to 1648.
We won’t just learn the cliché of art of war in our history that everybody’s been talking so much about, but also the very causes of tragic conflicts in a way that our kids, who’d better prepare to actually face a big one in the coming years, are also able to enjoy and learn with such abundance of colorful image assistance that will entertain everybody’s eyes, children’s and grown-ups’ alike.
After we are done with this series, our world we know will be larger than ever before with less misunderstanding about other societies in different languages and appearances, which has always been one of the biggest causes of the restless conflicts of our world.

Fortunately, she’s been joined by an unlikely group of survivors as they battle their way through the hardships in order to find their way to their new home.
This book is not filled with gore or nonstop killing. It is about survival against all odds and the human spirit. The characters are not perfect. They are people with actual strengths and weaknesses.
