Boek cover De vrouw die Friesland redde van Sunny Jansen (Paperback)
Albertine Agnes en het Rampjaar 1672
Met deze biografie weet Sunny Jansen de fascinerende levensgeschiedenis van deze onbekende prinses van Oranje in de rumoerige zeventiende eeuw op meeslepende wijze aan de vergetelheid te ontrukken. Albertine Agnes (1634-1696) was een van de opmerkelijkste vrouwen uit de Nederlandse zeventiende eeuw. Als prinses van Oranje werd ze, na de dood van haar man, de eerste vrouw die in de Republiek optrad als regentes van Friesland, Groningen en Drenthe. Een vrouw die politiek ingrijpt, was ongekend in die tijd. Zij wist op spectaculaire wijze met inzet van de waterlinie het Noorden te behoeden voor...

Boek cover Mysteries of the Norman Conquest van Robert Allred (Hardcover)
Unravelling the Truth of the Battle of Hastings and the Events of 1066
Recent challenges to the traditional site of the Battle of Hastings have led to a surge of interest in the events surrounding England's most famous battle. This, in turn, has increased speculation that the titanic struggle for the English crown in 1066 did not take place on the slopes of what is today Battle Abbey, with a number of highly plausible alternative locations being proposed. The time had clearly come to evaluate all these suggestions, and Robert Allred decided to take on that task. Taking nothing for granted, Robert hiked round the sites of the three battles of 1066 - Fulford,...

Boek cover Relación de la guerra de Cipre y suceso de la batalla naval de Lepanto van Fernando De Herrera (Onbekend)
Fernando de Herrera fue de los primeros escritores españoles en celebrar formalmente la batalla de Lepanto. La inmediatez y el impacto público del acontecimiento, así como la ausencia de textos castellanos que lo hubieran abordado con desempeño suficiente, fueron las causas que el poeta esgrimió para justificar la escritura de la obra. Herrera intervino aquí y allá a lo largo del libro para dar cuenta de su quehacer como historiador, pero también hizo las veces de hombre de letras, de modo que esta obra se convirtió en referencia oficial para la monarquía hispánica. Los autores...

Boek cover Breve historia de la Guerra de Ifni-Sáhara N.E. color van Carlos Canales (Onbekend)
A mediados del siglo XX, Marruecos desarrolló un afán expansionista que supo aprovechar la débil posición internacional de España para arrebatarle en apenas siete meses el Sahara español. Esta guerra, ignorada por la opinión pública, es una de las más sangrientas para el ejército español: 300 bajas de un pelotón de 8.000 soldados. La ineptitud e ineficacia de los altos mandos de España ocasionaron que la derrota empezase a darse desde el principio. Ni siquiera las visitas de celebridades como Gila o Carmen Sevilla fueron capaces de elevar el ánimo de ciudadanos y tropas cada...

Then and Now
Nine days before Christmas 1944 Hitler played Germany’s last card on which he staked everything to turn the tables in the West. This is the first time that an attempt has been made to cover the entire salient in order to present the battle in our familiar ‘then and now’ format. Hundreds of miles have been traveled by the author throughout every corner of the battlefield to search out the scenes of past events — every known photograph belonging to combatants, civilians, and in public collections and private sources has been sought or considered. all the cine film has been examined...
