When the daughter of a retired Navy SEAL is kidnapped and held for ransom in Mexico, Rogue Warrior Richard Marcinko and his band of Red Cell International warriors head south of the border to rescue her. Along the way, they encounter drug dealers and human traffickers, break into a cartel kingpin´s mansion, and do battle with a hundred of the meanest banditos since Pancho Villa. And just for good measure, Marcinko uncovers a secret Hezbollah camp funded by the Iranian government and sheltered by the drug lords. Marcinko and company fend off the bad guys, saving a small border town in a scene reminiscent of the climax of The Magnificent Seven. But the founder of SEAL Team 6 finds his toughest opponent may actually be the woman he´s come to rescue. And then there´s the question of who really sent Dick to find her...
He’s the president with the asterisk by his name: Richard Milhous Nixon, the only US president to resign from office. But Richard Nixon’s legacy to the history of the US is much more complicated than the scandal of Watergate. His is the classic story of American legend - a young man who rose from his humble roots to achieve power and influence. This audiobook will teach you about: The ´´Have-Not” Nixon Nixon rising Vice President The Election of 1960 President at last Watergate Nixon in disgrace Much more Nixon´s story has tinges of Horatio Alger, but also of Machiavelli, and that may be the enigma of him, the student who was offered scholarships to Ivy League schools but couldn’t afford to go there, forever embedding within him the resentment against his political opponents, such as John F. Kennedy. Nixon was the politician who helped to bring the Republican Party back into power after the Roosevelt years, but who didn’t shy away from ´´dirty tricks” in order to win election. He was the dogged, diligent candidate who had his facts in order, but couldn’t compete on television with the telegenic JFK, the anti-communist who negotiated treaties with the Soviet Union and opened the door to China, the president who experienced abuse during the Watergate investigation, and the rehabilitated elder statesmen of American politics in the post-Watergate years. Was Nixon a villain or a hero? Meet the president whose personality consisted of conflicting layers of pragmatism, patriotism, and self-doubt, which caused a fall from grace that roiled American democracy. 1. Language: English.

The official inside story of the life, death and remarkable discovery of history´s most controversial monarch.On 22 August 1485 Richard III was killed at Bosworth Field, the last king of England to die in battle. His victorious opponent, Henry Tudor (the future Henry VII), went on to found one of our most famous ruling dynasties. Richard´s body was displayed in undignified fashion for two days in nearby Leicester and then hurriedly buried in the church of the Greyfriars. Fifty years later, at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries, the king´s grave was lost - its contents believed to be emptied into the river Soar and Richard III´s reputation buried under a mound of Tudor propaganda. Its culmination was Shakespeare´s compelling portrayal of a deformed and murderous villain, written over a hundred years after Richard´s death. Now - in an incredible find - Richard III´s remains have been uncovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The King´s Grave traces this remarkable journey. In alternate chapters, Philippa Langley, whose years of research and belief that she would find Richard in this exact spot inspired the project, reveals the inside story of the search for the king´s grave, and historian Michael Jones tells of Richard´s 15th-century life and death. The result is a compelling portrayal of one of our greatest archaeological discoveries, allowing a complete reevaluation of our most controversial monarch - one that discards the distortions of later Tudor histories and puts the man firmly back into the context of his times. 1.
