The story of the vibrant and revolutionary soccer culture in Hungary that, on the eve of World War II, redefined the modern game and launched a new era. In the early 1950s, the Hungarian side was unbeatable, winning the Olympic gold and thrashing England in the Match of the Century. Their legendary forward, Ferenc Puskás, was one of the game's first international superstars. But as Jonathan Wilson reveals in The Names Heard Long Ago, this celebrated era was in fact the final act of the true golden age of Hungarian soccer. In Budapest in the 1920s and 1930s, a new school of soccer emerged that became one of the most influential in the game's history, shaped by brilliant players and coaches who brought mathematical rigor and imagination to the style of play. But with the onset of World War II, many were forced into exile, fleeing anti-Semitism and the rise of fascism. Yet their legacy endured. Against the backdrop of economic and political turmoil between the wars, and in spite of extraordinary odds, Hungary taught the world to play.

The Assassin King opens at winter's end with the arrival by sea of a mysterious hunter, a man of ancient race and purpose, who endlessly chants the names of the pantheon of demons that are his intended victims, as well as one other: Ysk, the original name of the Brother, now known as Achmed, the Assassin King of Ylorc. At the same moment of this portentous arrival, two gatherings of great import are taking place. The first is a convocation of dragons, who gather in a primeval forest glade--the site of the horrific ending of Llauron, one of the last of their kind. They mourn not only his irrevocable death, but the loss of the lore and control over the Earth itself that it represents. The ancient wyrms are terrified for what will come as a result of this loss. The second gathering is a council of war held in the depths of the keep of Haguefort: Ashe and Rhapsody, rulers of the alliance that protects the Middle Continent; Gwydion, the new Duke of Navarne; Anborn, the Lord Marshall; Achmed, the King of Ylorc, and Grunthor, his Sergeant-Major. Each brings news that form the pieces of a great puzzle. And as each piece is added it becomes quite clear: War is coming, the likes of which the world has never known. Cataclysm, both large and small, await in this sixth volume of the USA Today bestselling fantasy series, The Symphony of Ages. A twisting, fast-moving tale, The Assassin King promises endless surprises--most of which lead to pain.

John Calvin S Commentaries On Isaiah 33 48

This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life Calvin produced commentaries on most of the books of the Bible. His commentaries cover the larger part of the Old Testament, and all of the new excepting Second and Third John and the Apocalypse. His commentaries and lectures stand in the front rank of Biblical interpretation. All who take delight in the Holy Scriptures are familiarly acquainted with the writings of The Prophet Isaiah. Every variety of taste finds in them its appropriate gratification. Lofty conceptions, illustrated by splendid imagery, and clothed in language usually copious and flowing, some times abrupt, but always graceful, leave no room for hesitation to pronounce him, with Bishop Lowth, to be "the most sublime and elegant of the Prophets of the Old Testament." He is regarded with peculiar veneration as an honest, fearless, and able messenger of the Most High God, boldly reproving nobles and monarchs, denouncing the judgments of Heaven against all transgressors, and asserting the claims of the Divine law and government above all human authority. In his Prophecies he takes a wide range, surveys those nations which power or wealth or learning or commerce had raised to the highest celebrity in those remote times, and describes their rise and fall, and wonderful revolutions, so eagerly traced lay us in the page of history, as the execution of Jehovah's counsels, and the arrangements of unerring wisdom But chiefly does he pour out rich instruction concerning the Messiah, whose life and sufferings, and death and glorious reign, he delineates so faithfully, and with such thrilling interest, that he has obtained the appellation of "The Evangelical Prophet." To the devout reader there is added a still more powerful attraction in his seraphic piety, which, breathing throughout all his communications, and kindling a holy flame in the hearts of the children of God, attests the important fact, not only that in the visions of God he reached the noblest heights of inspiration, but — which was far more valuable — that he enjoyed habitual and intimate fellowship with The Father of Spirits. This book contains Calvin's commentaries on chapters 33 - 48 of Isaiah.

"Horse-drawn milk wagons; after-noons watching Tom Mix and Roy Rogers films; hitching a ride on car bumpers on icy winter days; carving girls' names and special dates into the Name Tree-these are just a few of the boyhood memories William Isaacs recounts in this warm, vivid, and funny autobiography. A memoir generously laden with family lore and adventures with friends, Stories from the Name Tree chronicles Isaac's early years with his twin brother, Phil, in a small Michigan town and follows the development of his professional life. Isaacs graduated from first jobs (golf caddy, poultry-store chicken killer) to service in the U.S. Air Force and a radar and electronic gun-sight technician, to a thirty-three-year career as an engineer at General Motors. Born in the midst of the Depression, growing up during World War II, and coming of age int the 1950s, William Isaacs tells a story that belongs uniquely to an American man"--P. [4] of cover.

Since the 2001 posthumous transcription and release of his father’s World War II memoir, Breathes There A Soldier, L.G. Heatley has followed that work with In the Name of Freedom. The first volume in the series, comprising first person accounts of World War II, as told by veterans from all branches of service and theaters of operation, presents each chapter as a separate veteran’s wartime experience. From the frigid forests of France and Belgium to the bloody sands of Saipan and Peleliu In the Name of Freedom is a testament of the war from those who were there. Few books have been written which capture the detailed viewpoint of the fighting enlisted man of the era. There are no battle overviews or campaign summaries from combat strategists in this book. The reader will take a journey through the war with each veteran, to places of tragedy, triumph and turmoil, where human kindness overcame brutality, despite the odds. They were the American enlisted servicemen of World War II. These are their experiences.
