Mitchell Garrison has made a terrible mistake. While on a class field trip to the museum, Mitchell's friend, Howard, dares him to snatch a small, unguarded artifact from around the neck of an old, emerald suit of armor. Cracking under the pressure of his pal calling him "chicken," Mitchell reluctantly agrees, but soon comes to regret it. That night, with the stolen piece of history tucked safely under his bed, Mitchell finds it difficult to sleep. It isn't very long after he closes his eyes that he has his first nightmare. Terrible visions of monsters, beasts, and wild men attack him in his sleep, trying to stop him from reaching his final opponent, an ominous, emerald suit of armor... just like the one at the museum! The dream always ends the same way; the knight strikes Mitchell down. When things from the dreamworld start happening in real life, Mitchell pleads with Howard and their other friend, Keri, for help. He knows in his gut that he must return the artifact to where it belongs... before the Knightmare comes true. 1. Language: English. Narrator: full cast.

Chris Spielman was a high school and Ohio State football legend and a four-time Pro Bowl linebacker, but he didn't tackle his toughest opponent until his playing career was almost over. In 1998, his wife, Stefanie, was diagnosed with breast cancer. So began an 11-year journey that brought joy and suffering to the Spielmans, as well as hope and inspiration to thousands of others. In That's Why I'm Here, Spielman traces his storied career, recalls his courtship of Stefanie Belcher, cherishes the growth of their four children, and invokes the deep spiritual faith that gave their family wisdom and comfort in times of struggle. Though there are plenty of on-the-field tales in the book, it's not just for football fans. It's for people whose lives have been touched by cancer, for people whose own faith has wavered, and for people who want to meet a woman of tremendous beauty, grace and strength. Though Stefanie passed away on November 19, 2009, her memory and inspiration live on. With laughter and tears, joy and heartbreak, this book reminds us that her spirit is still here. 1.

Haig's Enemy: Crown Prince Rupprecht and German...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

During the First World War, the British army's most consistent German opponent was Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria. Commanding more than a million men as a General, and then Field Marshal, in the Imperial German Army, he held off the attacks of the British Expeditionary Force under Sir John French and then Sir Douglas Haig for four long years. But Rupprecht was to lose not only the war, but his son and his throne. In Haig's Enemy, Jonathan Boff explores the tragic tale of Rupprecht's war - the story of a man caught under the wheels of modern industrial warfare. Providing a fresh viewpoint on the history of the Western Front, Boff draws on extensive research in the German archives to offer a history of the First World War from the other side of the barbed wire. He revises conventional explanations of why the Germans lost with an in-depth analysis of the nature of command, and of the institutional development of the British, French, and German armies as modern warfare was born. Using Rupprecht's own diaries and letters, many of them never before published, Haig's Enemy views the Great War through the eyes of one of Germany's leading generals, shedding new light on many of the controversies of the Western Front. 1.
