'Terriers' in India

Some 50,000 British Territorials served in India during the Great War. Astonishingly, it has taken a century for a book on them to be written. The Territorials ¿ citizen soldiers, members of a force formed before the war for home defence ¿ never expected to serve abroad, but volunteered for ¿Imperial Service¿ at Lord Kitchener¿s request. Instead of going to France, in 1914 they went to India, to release Regulars for the front. The Territorials ¿ ¿Terriers¿ ¿ became responsible at first for garrison duty, not trusted to fight in Mesopotamia or on the North-West Frontier. Gradually, they gained the skill to be sent to war, and most of the 41 Territorial battalions sent to India saw active service, in Mesopotamia, in Frontier campaigns, in Aden and in the Third Anglo-Afghan war of 1919. (Territorials were retained in India for up to a year after the Armistice, unhappily.) Terriers in India, based on the abundant but almost untouched holdings of county archives and regimental museums mainly in southern English counties, tells their story for the first time. It shows how novice citizen soldiers learned to act as sahibs, how they responded to India and its people (often sensitively) and took part in the most dramatic upheaval in British India since the 1857 Mutiny. Terriers in India is a rich mix of social and military history, ranging from cantonment bungalows, bazaars and brothels to sangers on the Frontier and tragic actions on the Tigris; battles in which the Terriers played a full part.

Celtic Mythology: Tales of Gods, Goddesses, and...

Most people have heard of the Celts - the elusive, ancient tribal people who resided in present-day England, Ireland, Scotland and France. Paradoxically characterized as both barbaric and innocent, the Celts appeal to the modern world as a symbol of a bygone era, a world destroyed by the ambition of empire and the spread of Christianity throughout Western Europe. Despite the pervasive cultural and literary influence of the Celts, shockingly little is known of their way of life and beliefs, because very few records of their stories exist. In this book, for the first time, Philip Freeman brings together the best stories of Celtic mythology. Everyone today knows about the gods and heroes of the ancient Greeks, such as Zeus, Hera, and Hercules, but how many people have heard of the Gaulish god Lugus or the magical Welsh queen Rhiannon or the great Irish warrior Cú Chulainn? We still thrill to the story of the Trojan War, but the epic battles of the Irish Táin Bó Cuailgne are known only to a few. And yet those who have read the stories of Celtic myth and legend - among them writers like J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis - have been deeply moved and influenced by these amazing tales, for there is nothing in the world quite like them. In these stories a mysterious and invisible realm of gods and spirits exists alongside and sometimes crosses over into our own human world; fierce women warriors battle with kings and heroes, and even the rules of time and space can be suspended. Captured in vivid prose these shadowy figures - gods, goddesses, and heroes - come to life for the modern listener. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gerard Doyle.

The Berlin blockade brought former allies to the brink of war. Britain, France, the United States and the Soviet Union defeated and began their occupation of Germany in 1945. Within a few years, the Soviets and their Western partners were jockeying for control of their former foe. Attempting to thwart the Allied powers' plans to create a unified West German government, the Soviets blocked rail and road access to the western sectors of Berlin in June 1948. With no other means of delivering food and supplies to the German people under their protection, the Allies organized the Berlin airlift. In Berlin on the Brink: The Blockade, the Airlift, and the Cold War, Daniel F. Harrington examines the "Berlin question" from its origin in wartime plans for the occupation of Germany through the Paris Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in 1949. Harrington draws on previously untapped archival sources to challenge standard accounts of the postwar division of Germany, the origins of the blockade, the original purpose of the airlift, and the leadership of President Harry S. Truman. While thoroughly examining four-power diplomacy, Harrington demonstrates how the ingenuity and hard work of the people at the bottom - pilots, mechanics, and Berliners - were more vital to the airlift's success than decisions from the top. Harrington also explores the effects of the crisis on the 1948 presidential election and on debates about the custody and use of atomic weapons. Berlin on the Brink is a fresh, comprehensive analysis that reshapes our understanding of a critical event of cold war history. The book is published by University Press of Kentucky. 1.

We have met the enemy and they are ours.” (Oliver Hazard Perry)Sandwiched between the Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 is one of America’s forgotten conflicts, and the stalemated nature of the war (which resolved virtually none of either side’s war aims) has also ensured that it is often given merely a cursory overview.Great Britain, as the leader of several coalitions of conservative European countries trying to isolate and snuff out the revolutionary spirit and the ambitions of Napoleon, had been at war with France almost continuously since 1792. Under President Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and James Madison (1809-1817), the United States tried to steer a course that would keep it from being drawn into the European war and defend its neutrality on the high seas. However, both Britain and France wanted to hurt the other side economically by keeping goods out of their enemy’s hands. Thus, they did not faithfully respect the rights of neutral nations. The British government in 1807 had issued the “Orders in Council”, which enforced a naval blockade against France, and with a shortage of seamen to man the Royal Navy, Britain also felt justified in stopping and sometimes firing on ships flying the American flag in the name of apprehending escaped British sailors.The other main cause of war was distress on the Northwestern frontier, where the British in Canada were supporting Indian resistance to American settlement. So-called “War Hawks” from that region in Congress pushed for a declaration of war. Some hoped that a war would not only stop Indian depredations but evict the British from Canada and lead to completion of some unfinished business from the American Revolution, namely Canada joining the U.S.Americans had few things to celebrate during the Barbary Wars or the War of 1812, but one of them was the growing prestige of the U.S. Navy, and among those who were instrumental in its development, few were as influential as UNKNOWN N N http://www.audible.de/pd/B0813Y4SWP?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B0813Y4SWP?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Mein Adventskalender-Hörspiel: Pettersson und Findus 7.95 AVAILABLE Mein Adventskalender-Hörspiel: Pettersson und Findus Mein Adventskalender-Hörspiel Sven Nordqvist, Angela Strunck Morgen, Findus, wird's was geben.

How is it that the law enforcer itself does not have to keep the law? How is it that the law permits the state to lawfully engage in actions which, if undertaken by individuals, would land them in jail? These are among the most intriguing issues in political and economic philosophy. More specifically, the problem of law that itself violates law is an insurmountable conundrum of all statist philosophies. The problem has never been discussed so profoundly and passionately as in this essay by Frederic Bastiat from 1850. This essay might have been written today. It applies to our own time. It applies in all times in which the state assumes unto itself different rules and different laws from that by which it expects other people to live. And so we have this legendary essay, written in a white heat against the leaders of 19th-century France, the reading of which has shocked millions out of their toleration of despotism. This new audio edition, from the Mises Institute, revives a glorious translation that has been out of print for 100 years, one that circulated in Britain in the generation that followed Bastiat s death. This newly available translation provides new insight into Bastiat's argument. The question that Bastiat deals with: how to tell when a law is unjust or when the law maker has become a source of law breaking? When the law becomes a means of plunder it has lost its character of genuine law. When the law enforcer is permitted to do with others' lives and property what would be illegal if the citizens did them, the law becomes perverted. Bastiat doesn t avoid the difficult issues, such as why should we think that a democratic mandate can convert injustice to justice? He deals directly with the issue of the expanse of legislation: It is not true that the mission of the law is to regulate our consciences, our ideas, our will, our education, our sentiments, our works, our exchanges, our gifts, our enjoyments. Its mission is to prevent t 1. Language: English. Narrator: Floy Lilley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/003202/bk_acx0_003202_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Die französische Psych-Rock Band arbeitet seit 2009 in der Tradition von Serge Gainsbourg und Velvet Underground. Feat. Peter Hook (New Order), Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Bertrand BelinnnFeaturing Peter Hook, Anton Newcombe, Bertrand Belin! Die französische Band arbeitet seit 2009 in der swingenden Tradition von Serge Gainsbourg, Velvet Underground und dem yé-yé sound der 60er Jahre. Die Limiñanas verbinden sonnige Psychedelia mit Vintage-Pop. Die Band aus Perpignan, France, besteht aus der Drummerin und manchmal-Sägerin Marie Limiñana und dem Bassisten, Organist und Hans-Dampf-in-allen Gassen Lionel Limiñana. Gastsängerinnen sind Stars wie Peter Hook (New Order), Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Bertrand Belin und dem Model Emmanuelle Seigner. Mit ihrer Kombi aus angezerrten Gitarren, Orgeln, halb gesprochenen, halb gesungenen Vocals und der coolen Retro-Produktion zelebriert die Band die Sexyness des 60ies-French-Sounds. Als spielten Lou Reed und Serge Gainsbourg in einer Band. What was old is new again The old adage is so tired that nobody takes its proper measure: all people hear is the word old , when the important one is new . Making new things out of old things is an act of alchemy. The proof is in this fifth album no rest for the wicked of Perpignan which is blown right open here and there by a few very contemporary guests. After the opener, Ouverture , with its almost surf-like guitars, comes Le Premier Jour , where Lionel Limiñana talks about his rock baptism with the punks, the mods, the skinheads and the Lambrettas of his youth in the South of France. What comes just after is the seismic shock of Istanbul is Sleepy : the Imprimatur of Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre is simply enormous. Then comes Emmanuelles Seigner s super sexy tornado on the title track, and Dimanche follows, with Bertrand Belin. Lionel sees him as a French Nick Cave who writes songs that resemble films. . The Gift features Peter Hook who scrapes his bass guitar again here, obviously a song reminiscent of an early period New Order. Finally, the Limiñanas on their own send out an instrumental cavalcade with a furious beat, like a Kraut Morricone, Motorizzati Marie followed by Pink Flamingos , introduced with psych rock pads played backwards forming a vaporous song bathed in acoustic arpeggios. A respite in the album before the fuzz and the abyssal bass of Trois Bancs violently shakes the ghost of Gainsbourg: an electroshock in talk over. And to close the scene, a love message: De La Part Des Copains , its organ, its tambourine, its quaver and its brass place it in the classic soundtrack category revered by the band. An ideal conclusion for this incredible faultless record. The rock n roll epiphany thus continues. It belongs to those who will listen full blast to Shadow People and will doubtless feel the urge to plug a guitar into an amp. A valve amp, of course. TRACKS: A1. Ouverture. / A2.

All You Want To Know About Britney Spears II

Britney Spears` appearance on the cross of Jesus on the cover of the video single for the song, `Piece Of Me`, from the album, Blackout, precedes her songwriters` lyrical description of what her video directors depict as the consequences of the Earth`s acceptance of fascism, which is ultimately Satanical, because it promotes killing for the entertainment of an increasingly non-human parasitoid audience: `You wanna piece of me?` Although the video age was lauded as affording the opportunity to people to own and buy the movies and pop video recordings that they wanted to see repeatedly, recorded film was also the medium of the `snuff` genre, which was the recording of real life killings to be shown as entertainment to the parasitoid audience:`Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.`5 Elton John`s lyric to `Candle In The Wind` (1973) originally lamented the death of Marilyn Monroe, the Hollywood sex symbol found dead in the nude in 1962. However, it was also used to lament the death of the English Princess, Diana, whose car crashed in the Pont D` Alma tunnel in Paris, France, pursued by paparazzi trying to get a shot in in 1997.
