After the Dunkirk debacle in May 1940, Britain's primary weapon of defence was her air force. The exploits of the RAF's bomber crews and fighter pilots featured almost nightly on the radio and in the cinema newsreels; the men themselves were the objects of great admiration and respect. Yet, how many of these brave airmen were not British nationals? During the Second World War, exiled airmen from six occupied countries in Europe flew from British soil, fighting in or alongside the squadrons of the RAF; each had a burning desire to strike back at the cruel regime that had so ruthlessley crushed his homeland. At the political level, the exiled governments were keen for their country's active service arms to remain independent, but the RAF had different ideas. Many influential sections of the Air Ministry avoided making firm commitments to their allies and considered these new reinforcements to have been thrust upon them. This book explores these courageous and often undervalued men, who were caught up in a web of political argument.

After other mutated children suffer heart conditions from a defective gene, Beth's superior knowledge is called upon to help save their lives. Years of testing and training have gone into developing these children into the next generation of humans, but an errant pilot stumbles upon the testing area and is killed by one of the more aggressive mutants. Her captors-the same scientists who trained her to kill, heal, and operate almost every piece of military hardware our country has to offer-have been ordered to terminate Beth and all others like her. But Beth's amazing abilities allow her to escape in a specially designed Hummer outfitted with the latest in technology. Beth searches for others like her in order to save lives and eventually finds a community of people who understand her-through them she finds friendship and acceptance.

Freedom Flight is the story of two ordinary men on an extraordinary adventure. In celebration of the centenary of powered flight and a decade of South African independence, SA pilots Alan Honeyborne and Ricky De Agrela took off, completely unsupported, from Cape Town on 16 December 2003. Their aim – to touch down on each continent of the world on the longest expedition ever flown in microlights. The expedition achieved several firsts for private aviation including flying through Yemen and Nepal and completing an unsupported microlight flight from South Africa to Australia. However, tragedy struck, first in China where Alan went down and later in Belize, when Alan’s replacement, Martin Walker, also sustained a fatal accident. Ricky overcame personal trauma and debilitating fear to fly alone from England through Europe, over the Mediterranean Sea, the Sahara Desert and the wildernesses of East and Southern Africa to make it back to Cape Town. His accomplishment embodies the expedition’s vision of encouraging others to reach for the sky. The story of Ricky’s remarkable achievement is told in website updates and e-mail correspondence with maps detailing the 64 000-kilometre route.

Kite flying is a sport native to South-East Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Symbolic of both freedom and control, the kite has been used as a metaphor in classical Indian literature, poetry, language and folklore. Uttarayan, a kite festival celebrated in the state of Gujarat, is not merely a religious observance, but also a time when young and old come together in celebration; a time when differences hold little meaning… The culture of flying and fighting kites, its history, politics, language, and the commerce that lies at the core of the Gujarati way of life provide an interesting backdrop to the celebration of Uttarayan. The buying of kites, preparations in the kitchen and the rooftop wars all form a part of this colourful festival. A Different Freedom explorers the world of the kite, as it travels and changes through the centuries, to its current form and the festivities associated with it in modern day Gujarat.
