Book Description: 'Purists argue that colourising black and white photographs is sacrilege, but the world has always been in colour. Truth be told, monochrome is a contrivance. Human experience is always colourful' The Times. The epic, harrowing and world-changing story – in words and colourized images – of global conflict from the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand to the obliteration of Hiroshima by the dropping of the first atom bomb. The World Aflame will embrace not only the total conflagrations of 1914-18 and 1939-45 and the international tensions, conflicting ideologies and malign economic forces that set them in train, but also the civil wars of the interwar period in Ireland and Spain, wars in Latin America, Britain's imperial travails in such places as Ireland, Somalia and Palestine, and events on the domestic 'fronts' of the belligerent nations. Like The Colour of Time, The World Aflame is a collaboration between the gifted Brazilian artist Marina Amaral, and the leading British historian Dan Jones. Marina has created 200 stunning images, using contemporary photographs as the basis for her full-colour digital renditions. The accompanying narrative anchors each image in its context, weaving them into a vivid account of four decades of conflict that shaped the world we live in today. A fusion of amazing pictures and well-chosen and informative words, The World Aflame offers a moving – and often terrifying – perspective on the bloodiest century in human history. ************************************************************** Reviews for THE COLOUR OF TIME: 'The most breathtakingly colourised black-and-white pictures ever' Daily Mail. 'I have long considered colourisation sacrilege ... after reading this book, I've changed my mind' The Times. '[The Colour of Time] does something simple yet extraordinary. It takes black-and-white photos of historic events and colours them in. The effect is transformative' Daily Telegraph. 'A stunning book ... Quite extraordinary' The Bookseller. 'There is something of The Wizard of Oz about Marina Amaral's photographs. She whisks us from black-and-white Kansas to shimmering Technicolor Oz ... When you see Amaral's coloured portraits, you think: phwoar! ... She changes the way we see a period or a person' Spectator. 'The effect of colour is far more transformative than you might imagine ... [Amaral's] touched-up photographs look even more realistic, and closer to life, than a photograph taken yesterday ... Extraordinary' Mail on Sunday. 'Pictures brought to life as you've never seen them before' Sunday Post. '[Amaral] breathes new life, immediacy and human connection into black-and-white pictures. Even familiar shots are transformed in a breathtaking way ... Even the casual reader leafing through these pages will be stopped in their tracks, connected to people from the past like never before – at last, in living colour' Irish News. 'Jones sketches with wry economy not only the historical context but the purpose of the photograph, from documented reality to shameless propaganda, from official portrait to candid snap ... There is much to enjoy here. As a history book, it acts as a fleeting guide to a tumultuous century. But as an aesthetic experiment it is remarkably successful' Daily Express. 'What also elevates The Colour of Time above regular coffee table fare is the startling vivacity and impact of the photographs chosen, and the concise but focused and gripping texts by Jones, making the book a worthwhile cover-to-cover read as much as it serves as a showcase book to dip into at will' All About History.

Book Description: For the short period of time that it lasted, The Welsh Revival was, in many ways, the greatest that the church has ever witnessed. Never has a region been so quickly or radically transformed for righteousness, or the world so impacted. The fire of this revival was so intense that when letters or newspaper stories about it were read in other parts of the world, revival would break out there too. Today, almost a century later, those who just read or hear the story are still moved with conviction, hope and the inevitable question: Will God do it again? Yes! The purpose of this book is to review the events and lessons from one of the greatest moves of God of all time, in order to prepare for one that is even greater.

Book Description: Was geschieht, wenn man die Epoche der Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografie aus ihrem monochromen Schlummer reißt? Seit dem 19. Jahrhundert wurden prägende Momente genauso wie Alltagsszenen auf Lichtbild gebannt. Das Zeitalter der Fotografie hatte begonnen und macht seither die Vergangenheit für die Nachwelt sichtbar – doch bis weit in das 20. Jahrhundert hinein nur in Schwarz-Weiß. Die Künstlerin Marina Amaral kolorierte mittels digitaler Bildbearbeitung 200 ikonische Bilder aus den Jahren 1850 bis 1960, sodass Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien zu lebendigen und faszinierenden Farbfotos werden. Berühmte Staatsmänner, wichtige historische Ereignisse ebenso wie die Gesichter gewöhnlicher Menschen zeigen sich uns auf dramatische und unerwartete Weise. Ergänzt werden die Bilder durch informative Begleittexte des Historikers Dan Jones. Von der Zeit Bismarcks bis zum jungen Nelson Mandela, von der ersten Weltausstellung bis zur Epoche der Raumfahrt – Die Welt von gestern in Farbe bietet einen einzigartigen und oft wunderschönen neuen Zugang zur modernen Geschichte.

Book Description: PILLAR OF FIRE Millions of Years before humanity and other intelligent races learned to roam the Milky Way, the Zheltyana had created an empire among the stars - rose, triumphed, and vanished. All that remained were a few ruins, some artifacts, and the knowledge that their powerful scientific secrets awaited rediscovery. One such secret had been found on the feudal planet Naxos, under the tyranny of the half-mad Idalia Ancanette. Her scientists had tapped its mystery to create a pillar of energy which promised to make Idalia mistress of a hundred worlds - if it did not destroy Naxos before it could be harnessed. Such an event called for the attention of Earth's master agent, Cap Kennedy, and his scientific crew. Because that column of atomic fire was a beacon that could herald a millennium or end in A WORLD AFLAME.

Book Description: “World Betrayed” is the sequel and continuing story of “World Aflame”. The mysterious, and to date undefeated fires, continue to burn around the world threatening all life on the planet. Scientists, politicians, philosophers, clergy and “talking heads” all have their theories, but none of them has a solution to end this terrifying phenomenon. Communication, travel, and energy experienced in the 21st century has been sent back to 19th century standards and methods. The mystery of Rick Landis’ disappearance continues unsolved. After being shot by an unknown assailant, the Sun Times reporter disappeared without a trace. But his “comrades in arms”, Captain Carl Dyan, Sydney Marston, and Marty “What’s his name” have vowed to never give up until they find the answer, dead or alive. For Sydney it is more urgent because Rick is the “love of her life”. Next, there are the rumors of a “Shadow Government” planning to take down the nations of the world. The promise to their naïve followers is power, wealth, position, and a Utopian World! But there is a dark side to these “Brave New World” leaders. They are brutal, power driven despots, traitorously using the trusting masses, to achieve their own personal goals. Murder, treachery, betrayal, and war continue in the book’s final chapters leading to an inspiring finish.

Book Description: Often called the †?Pulp Era†?, the years between the two World Wars have seen a tremendous surge in interest among wargamers. A World Aflame captures the adventurous nature of the time period to present a fun, fast-paced set of tabletop miniatures rules that can handle the many diverse conflicts of the period, from the Chinese Civil Wars and the "Great Game†? in Central Asia, to the Irish War of Independence and the bitter ideological warfare of the Russian and Spanish Civil Wars. The rules also contain options for the "Very British Civil War†?. This gaming trend has sprung up in recent years, following a "what-if†? scenario that has Edward VIII refusing to abdicate the throne, thrusting the country into civil war in 1938. It is a quirky, fun setting, and one that is surprisingly popular. Written by a life-long wargamer, A World Aflame focuses on the daring and heroism of battles fought in the last great era of adventure.

Book Description: Evolution Z - Stufe Eins! Ein Zombie-Thriller im Stile von „The Walking Dead“ Nach einem dramatischen Flugzeugabsturz in der Wildnis von Maine denken die Überlebenden des Augusta Airline Fluges 303, sie hätten das Schlimmste überstanden. Captain Raymond Thompson organisiert die Gruppe und bemüht sich um Hilfe, doch es wird schnell klar, dass es die Welt wie wir sie kennen nicht mehr gibt. Alles scheint aus den Fugen zu geraten und niemand weiß, wo die Katastrophe ihren Ursprung hat. Nur eine elementare Wahrheit wird der Gruppe schnell klar: Machst du einen Fehler, bezahlst du mit dem Leben und wirst wie "Sie"... Ein absolutes Muss für alle Fans von „The Walking Dead“! Über 35 5-Sterne-Bewertungen auf Amazon! Das sagen die Leser: "Spannendes und süchtig machendes Buch :) Man kann sich alles Bildlich vorstellen und fällt sofort in die Welt der Geschichte. auf alle Fälle weiter zu empfehlen." Tom "Ein unfassbar gutes und spannendes Buch. Als wenig Leser, hat es mich in seinen Bann gerissen und ich freue mich auf mehr!" andrea schulz "Ich habe das Buch fast in einem durch gelesen und war enttäuscht als es plötzlich schon zu Ende war. Flüssig und sehr spannend erzählt. Sehr zu empfehlen auch für nicht-zombie-fans" Kerstin Pranga-Ullrich "Über den Inhalt des Buches selber möchte ich gar nichts weiter sagen, denn hier lohnt sich das lesen dieses Buches auf jeden Fall! Es hat von Anfang bis Ende Spaß gemacht, es zu lesen. Es war einfach spannend und hat gefesselt. Auch in die anfänglich scheinbar voneinander unabhängigen Kapitel konnte man sich schnell reinfinden und hatte schnell ein klares Bild der einzelnen Protagonisten vor Augen. Man merkte dem Autoren seine Schreibfreude an und war schnell in seiner Welt gefangen. Auch die umgehende nette Antwort des Autoren mit dem Bonuskapitel im Anhang hat eigentlich ein extra Stern verdient! Ich warte ganz gespannt auf am liebsten ganz viele weitere Bände dieser Reihe - denn einzig allein das offene Ende lässt einen etwas unbefriedigt zurück ?? Denn hier muss man ganz klar sagen, hat der Autor sich wirklich die Grundlagen für noch unendlich viel Stoff gelegt. Hervorragend!!!" annika

Book Description: Throughout the world, in every nation, mysterious thundering fires erupt in oil fields, refineries, coal mines and on national borders. The holocaust is so tyrannical, that communication, energy and travel experienced in the 21st Century is suddenly ended. Two years prior to this global disaster Rick Landis is hired as a field reporter at The Sun Times newspaper. The first person he meets prior to his interview is the beautiful Sydney Marston. Sydney is the Chief Assistant to Charles “Chuck” Wainwright the owner/publisher of The Sun Times. Over the next year Rick’s reputation as an exceptional reporter grows and so does his interest in Sydney Marston. But he has questions: “Why does she always say ‘Have a blessed day.’ Is she a Jesus freak or what?” Next there is a mysterious meeting with Chuck Wainwright. He reveals to Rick that he is a leader in a secret underground government militia. But what government? Rick hesitantly accepts an overseas assignment. However, he becomes trapped there as the global fires break out and all transportation is terminated. Soon after that complication Rick, and his photographer pal Marty, learn that an army of giant hybrid soldiers is on the Syrian/Israeli border. They are there preparing to invade Israel. Murder, treachery, betrayal and war, continue in the book’s final chapters, leading to a surprising finish. Through it all, however, Rick continues to dream of a future with Sydney Marston.

Book Description: Sara fühlt sich so seltsam wie nie zuvor, nachdem sie mit dem geheimnisvollen König Kimaldor in der Dunkelheit zusammengestoßen ist. Ein König, der in der heutigen Zeit noch von einem Ritterorden beschützt wird? Und was war das für ein gleißend helles Licht? Halluzinationen? Vielleicht ist es doch besser, sich von den beiden Rittern zu einem Arzt bringen zu lassen. Der junge Knappe Marc ist sehr freundlich zu Sara. Doch Heermeister Nimroel lässt ihr das Blut in den Adern gefrieren. Feindselig blickt der blonde Ritter sie mit seinen eisblauen Augen an. Fast so, als würde er sie persönlich hassen. Im Schloss angekommen fühlt sich Sara zu König Kimaldor stark hingezogen, obwohl sie doch eigentlich ihren Mann Eric liebt. Irgendetwas geht hier nicht mit rechten Dingen zu. Ist der mysteriöse König Kimaldor überhaupt ein normaler Mensch? Und welches Geheimnis verbirgt Heermeister Nimroel, der ohne ein Wort in den Wald verschwunden ist? Als Sara dann auch in ihrem Zuhause von unheilvollen Visionen geplagt wird, ist ihr eines völlig klar: Ihr Leben wird nach dieser Zusammenkunft niemals mehr so sein, wie es war ...
