First published in 1988, this is the story of how Claude Dansey, deputy head of MI6, infiltrated Henri Déricourt, double agent extraordinaire, into the rival British wartime secret service, SOE. The ensuing trail of destruction and betrayal led to the loss of over four hundred British and French agents. Recruited as the man SOE so desperately needed, Déricourt penetrated the heart of PROSPER, SOE's biggest network in France. At the same time he renewed contact with Karl Boemelburg, head of German counter-espionage in Paris. Every movement, code and dispatch from the British agents was made known to Boemelburg; Déricourt gave him everything. His treachery finally led to the disastrous fall of the PROSPER network, and to the arrest of nearly one thousand men and women, hundreds of whom died in concentration camps. Was it patriotism that drove Dansey, or was the Déricourt plan merely part of the secret war between MI6 and SOE, a war in which Dansey held all the weapons? All the King's Men is the dramatic account on one of the most ruthless secret operations of the Second World War.

'The British soldier,' wrote a Prussian officer who served with Wellington, 'is vigorous, well fed, by nature highly brave and intrepid, trained to the most vigorous discipline, and admirably well armed . . . These circumstances explain how this army . . . has never yet been defeated in the field.' From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the Downfall of Napoleon in 1815, Britain won a series of major wars against France that enabled her to lay the foundations of a global empire. By Waterloo, she was the paramount maritime and industrial power in the world, and would remain so for much of the nineteenth century. This is the story of that extraordinary century and a half of martial success and the people who made it possible: the soldier-kings William III and the first two Georges; the generals Marlborough, Wolfe, Moore and Wellington; and the ordinary British redcoats who - despite harsh service conditions that included low pay, poor housing, inadequate food and brutal discipline - rarely let their commanders down in battles as far afield as Blenheim, Plassey, Quebec and Waterloo. In a fast moving narrative that ranges from the barracks and cabinet rooms of England to the rolling plains of Flanders (the 'Cockpit of Europe'), the trackless wilderness of North America and the mountains of the Iberian Peninsula, Saul David paints a compelling and vivid portrait of the British soldier - Wellington's 'best all Instruments' - in peacetime and at war.

All the Kings Horses, All the Kings Men is a deeply moving account of the life of the author's son, previous to and following the discovery of the presence of a tumour in his bones, a result of Osteogenic Sarcoma. The story begins at the beginning - with Jonathan's birth. A first-time mother, the author has her life and her home carefully planned and prepared in anticipation of the arrival of 'Boots'. She is soon to realize that having a child is not something one can plan; they arive when they like and they occupy one's thoughts and affections to such an extent that all the best-laid plans for going back to her career make less and less sense. After a year, the author makes the decision to become a 'full-time, on-location mom'. The closeness that this allows to develop is to stand her and her son in good stead for the difficult time to come when Jonathan's illness is discovered. The author's prose is fluid and articulate, conveying with ease the deep love which she feels for her son. The description of these carefree early years draws the reader into their extraordinary story, so that he too feels affection for this boy at whom life is about to throw its worst, whilst the day-to-day struggle which is to follow is a lesson in courage for us all. This is a well-written book, with an important message for parents, parents-to-be, and anyone who has felt and given the precious love unique to parent and child.

In today's society there is a critical need in the body of Christ to return to the exclusive use of God's Word. We must use God's Word as our foundation to prevail over personal problems and encourage others to do likewise in their intricacies. The biblical principles in this book are based on the Word of God and not on opinions, experiences, or any other secular philosophies. No matter how relentless a problem may seem, there are basic scriptural principles to follow that will permit us to fulfill God's plan for our lives and give biblical guidance to others. Therefore, there is a dire need for Biblical interpretation. The only source that one should use is the Bible for accurate interpretation. The Bible is God's infallible, inerrantly, inspired Word. God included everything in the Bible that is necessary for us to know concerning salvation and how we, as His children, should live. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: " II Timothy 3:16 God's Word is our only source for what is right, what is wrong, how to get it right and how to keep it right. The Bible is the only guide that never fails. Dr. William Earl Lee

Crisscrossing the sprawling landscape of Robert Penn Warren, James H. Justus offers us the first comprehensive survey of Warren’s complete canon, including the poetry of 1980. The temptation for everyone who has written on Warren, our most distinguished man of letters still active in American literature, asserts Justus, “is to analyze those themes and moral situations that, because they recur so frequently and obsessively, constitute the massive centrality of an entire corpus.” Justus attempts “to emphasize the ways by which we become aware of such themes and situations, the technical accomplishment of their rendering, which alone justifies our thinking of Warren as a literary artist.” The Achievement of Robert Penn Warren shows how Warren’s work—his fiction, poetry, literary criticism, historical and personal essays, journalism—is shaped largely by the circumstances not only of his birth and early career as a border-state southerner but also oh his training and later career as a transregional artist and intellectual. Dividing his book into four parts, Justus discusses in Part I Warren’s cycle of themes—the most enduring of which is self-knowledge, the very source of Warren’s life work. He devotes Part II to Warren’s poetry: the “mannered archaism” of his early work, the increasing mastery of the tendencies practiced by his fellow Agrarians—the metaphysical mode—and the advantage of technique in his most recent poems. Part III concern’s Warren’s nonfiction prose, with emphasis on Who Speaks for the Negro and I’ll Take My Stand. In Part IV, Justus, analyzes the novels as political and moral statements in Night Rider, At Heaven’s Gate, and All the King’s Men; as romance and history in World Enough and Time, Band of Angels, and Wilderness; and as “art of transparency,” in The Cave, Flood, Meet Me in the Green Glen, and A Place to Come To. Justus demonstrates Warren’s relish for “crowded densities of actuality” as fulfilled in the novelist’s skill in observing detail. “No other writer has made so much out of our cultural artifacts. . . . WPA murals, big houses and shotgun bungalows, letters and broadsides.” Warren continues in a southern literary tradition. The values of the country and small town, those affecting attitudes toward social cohesion and Christian assumptions about the nature of man, are often seen in conflict with the values of a life governed by art and the academy. Justus also places Warren’s work in the larger context of the various streams of American writing of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He cites in particular Warren’s unresolved relationship to Emerson and compares Warren to Mark Twain and Nathaniel Hawthorne. In examining Warren’s technical accomplishments, Justus proclaims the novelist/poet to be a man whose distinguished career has surpassed those of Edmund Wilson and Allen Tate. Warren calls himself “a little footnote” in the long history of the intellectual tension between transcendentalism and puritanism. Certainly readers of The Achievement of Robert Penn Warren will begin to understand how Warren’s discrete works relate to each other, how from poems to novels to prose—early and late “nothing is lost.” The undertaking by Justus is massive; the accomplishment, monumental.

Created when James I granted royal patronage to the former Chamberlain's Men in 1603, the King's Men were the first playing company to exercise a transformative influence on Shakespeare's plays. Not only did Shakespeare write his plays with them in mind, but they were also the first group to revive his plays, and the first to have them revised, either by Shakespeare himself or by other dramatists after his retirement. Drawing on theatre history, performance studies, cultural history and book history, Shakespeare in the Theatre: The King's Men reappraises the company as theatre artists, analysing in detail the performance practices, cultural contexts and political pressures that helped to shape and reshape Shakespeare's plays between 1603 and 1642. Reconsidering casting and acting styles, staging and playing venues, audience response, influence and popularity, and local, national and international politics, the book presents case-studies of performances of Macbeth, The Tempest, The Winter's Tale, Richard II, Henry VIII, Othello and Pericles alongside a broader reappraisal of the repertory of the company and the place of Shakespeare's plays within it.

As a man who disclaimed any kind of religious orthodoxy, Robert Penn Warren nonetheless found in Christianity "the deepest and widest metaphor for life." The significance he drew from it was one he expressed strictly in humanistic and natural terms: spiritual renewal and redemption were possible through engagement with literature and participation in the world. In Robert Penn Warren's Modernist Spirituality, Robert Koppelman explores the spiritual or religious dimension to Warren's work in light of his admitted agnosticism. Beginning with an overview of Warren's career as a Fugitive at Vanderbilt and then, later, as a formidable New Critic, Koppelman argues that Warren's regard for the spiritual aesthetic of both literary language and form can be traced to his early study of poetic metaphor. To illustrate Warren's mature vision, Koppelman centers his study on two novels and two poetry collections: All the King's Men, A Place to Come To, Promises: Poems 1954-1956, and Now and Then: Poems 1976-1978. He also examines the critical studies that concentrate on Warren's vision of time, history, and spiritual fulfillment, as well as those essays by Warren that complement his poems and novels in such a way as to elicit the reader's participation in the redemption of their narrators. Robert Penn Warren's Modernist Spirituality renews Warren's commitment to experiencing both literature and life as opportunities to participate in a realm of beauty and vision that is still open to contemporary readers.

Legends of the Norse Kings brings together two epic medieval sagas of brave kings and fierce dragons, perilous journeys and deadly battles, tales of love, magic and destiny. The two sagas in this book date from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries. The Saga of King Ragnar Goatskin recounts the adventures of the famous Danish ruler who fought a dragon to win a princess's hand in marriage. The Dream of King Alfdan retells the legend of the heroic King who rescued princess Ragnild and her brother Guthorm and whose dream, of a son who would rule all of Norway, comes true. These stories of Norse kings are beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, drawing on the sagas recorded by the historian Saxo Grammaticus and other Scandinavian writers of the Middle Ages.

My book comes from life experiences and the joy of having girls which was, and still is, a challenge as you watch them grow both spiritually and mentally. My home life was grounded. My parents believed in discipline and old-time beatings. Living in warm surroundings with grandparents who were in our lives, and aunts and uncles who also watched over us when we were younger has taught us that life is, and always will be, about family first. As you read in my book, you will see that every day started out with either a Scripture or just a simple prayer to say Thank you, Lord for bringing me through.
