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.

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 Libraries are filled with historical documents, manuscripts and photographic images that cover all aspects of the American Civil War.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.

Rescuing Rayne (Delta Force Heroes Book 1) by Susan Stoker

As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough. Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane “Ghost” Bryson hadn’t planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist.

For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning. Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they’re in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier. ** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
