The Hand of a Merciful God by David Ballenger

150 years after the Civil War, stories and tales survive. Libraries are filled with historical documents, manuscripts and photographic images that cover all aspects of the American Civil War. There are thousands of history books and documentaries giving us facts that have been recorded but countless stories have never been recorded—personal stories of men who fought and died, stories of men who survived. We don’t know all of their stories; we don’t know the whole story. Yet this is our history and these are our ancestors. To truly understand what drove these men to look into the face of death on a daily basis we must listen to them. But, the time is far past where we could speak to those who knew the truth, who experienced the war. Now we only have the stories from our ancestors as passed down through generations. As decades pass, generations fade, the chances to hear these stories are lost. We are fortunate, however, that many soldiers documented their experiences in letters written to family and friends.
This is one man’s account of the years he spent fighting for the Confederacy. No one better to tell the story than the man who lived it. If we remove our preconceived notions and bias as we read, we can comprehend the struggles that the soldiers went through: the hardships they faced, the missing of family, the loss of friends and the devastation that they saw.

The story is a fiction about a dog named Shon (named after my own dog), an American Stafford who finds love and happiness with his owner and friend Jerry. But, that love and happiness is replaced with war and pain for both the boy and the owner after Jerry is sent to study in the United States, leaving Shon behind. They are both plagued by the loss of each other till that feeling of love drives them to find each other again on the battlefield in Afghanistan.Shon finds Jerry but not in the best of conditions. Together, they both make their way out of a hospital recently taken over by the Taliban with their enemies hot at their heels.This story shows the bond between a man and his dog. It is an exciting and thrilling read for dog lovers, war story lovers, and lovers of action story novels.“Thank you very much Dad! Thank you so much, Mum!!” I screamed when my father and my mother finally presented me with the promised dog for which I had waited so long already. I was full of joy and I could not contain my excitement. I could not help crying while laughing as I became full of excitement and gratitude. If the way I screamed my gratitude to my parents did not do a good job of showing how much I valued the living gift that was just given to me, then, the way I hugged the little puppy, almost squeezing the life out of the little American Stafford breed definitely showed how much I loved and valued the puppy.””BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS, FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF GOD ” MATTHEW 5.9or so the movie version would go..“You are lucky to survive, sir. It’s a miracle you survived that long. Somehow, the explosion did not do any real harm to you. It was the shrapnel, your fall and the debris that did you all this damage” the doctor said to me and I was grateful that nothing major had happened to me.But there was a problem. They were talking about cutting Shon’s paw off. I was not going to allow that. The paw was hanging and they said he would need a lot of care if the paw would not be infected. Since the hospital was not a veterinary center, they could not admit him in and start taking care of him. They had only taken care of him because a soldier who was named Jeffery insisted that the dog deserved it. They were basically saying that they could not admit him in and that the only other options would be to cut his paw off, or for me to take care of the dog on my own. I insisted that I would take care of Shon myself and told them that there would be no cutting of anything.” dog, war, action, friendship, short story, best friend, genre fiction, military, family life, family story, a movie version, breeds, an American staffordshier, bravery, self-sacrifice, braveheart, American soldiers

Ottoman Art of War: Power Tactics & Strategy For Today by Steffan Ileman

They came on horseback from Central Asia and went on to grow one of the longest-lasting empires in history. They established history’s first multicultural state centuries before British colonies in North America declared the United States of America. They had superior military and organizational skills that ended the Medieval Age in Europe and set the stage for the Renaissance and the Age of Reason as the power of feudal lords eroded under their big guns. Their legendary elite combat core, the Janissaries, was a phenomenon in transformative education.

Ottoman Empire was Europe’s first welfare state based on privately funded charities. The Empire’s trade pact with France was history’s first free trade agreement. Like the United States the Ottoman Empire attracted talent, know-how and capital from all over to what was the world’s biggest free trade zone.

Can the tactics and strategy Ottoman Turks used to grow their Empire be applied to today’s entrepreneurial and organizational challenges?

As Islam and its history are uppermost on minds and the news agenda today, this is a fresh perspective on the people that used to be Islam’s shield throughout centuries. This is a book about history, but not a history book. It’s a businessman’s distillation of historical events into tactics and strategy that could be applied to 21st century challenges.
