Wargame: Red Dragon is a real-time strategy video game developed by Eugen Systems and released in April 2014 by Focus Home Interactive as a sequel to the Wargame: AirLand Battle from 2013. Similarly to the previous games from the franchise, it is set during the Cold War, but this time focuses on the East Asia region, introducing new nations of China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, and ANZAC. The title allows you to command an army consisting of ground, air, and naval forces, and fight your opponent for area domination on 1:1 scale battlefields.StoryWargame: Red Dragon is set in an alternative version of history during the Cold War, where the Soviet Union doesn’t collapse. As a commander leading your troops, you will be able to experience first-hand the struggle between forces of NATO and Warsaw Pact in East Asia.Gameplay and Game ModesWargame: Red Dragon main mode is the single-player campaign which is split into two parts. The first one is turn-based and it gives you an overview of the entire region, where you can start your operations and move units between different regions or declare battles. The second one takes you to the battlefield, where you can command chosen units in real-time in order to defeat the opposing forces and either hold the region or take it back from the enemy.Battles take place on huge maps representing realistic areas on a 1:1 scale, containing several strategic locations you can capture. Once the battle starts you can deploy your units on the battlefield and move them around, order to shoot at the enemy units, make them fall back, change formations, and more. Because of how large the maps are, the game features an option to significantly zoom out the visible area.Alternatively, you can play skirmishes or join the multiplayer, where you can manually select what units you want to include in your deck, giving you an option to create a very unique combination of troops that will fit your individual taste and playstyle. There are over a thousand units available to choose from, including various types of soldier groups, tanks, helicopters, and warships from the Cold War era.ReceptionWargame Red Dragon received positive reviews. Reviewers praised the strategic value of the title and the gameplay that favors strategic thinking instead of fast clicking. They also appreciated the visuals and the fact that Red Dragon turned out to be an enhanced version of the previous games, improving the existing mechanics that proved to be working well but needed a little tweak, but at the same time introducing certain new solutions to make the title more enjoyable.

Antarctica, Art and Archive (eBook, ePUB)
44,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Antarctica, that icy wasteland and extreme environment at the ends of the earth, was - at the beginning of the 20th century - the last frontier of Victorian imperialism, a territory subjected to heroic and sometimes desperate exploration. Now, at the start of the 21st century, Antarctica is the vulnerable landscape behind iconic images of climate change. In this genre-crossing narrative Gould takes us on a journey to the South Pole, through art and archive. Through the life and tragic death of Edward Wilson, polar explorer, doctor, scientist and artist, and his watercolours, and through the work of a pioneer of modern anthropology and opponent of scientific racism, Franz Boas, Gould exposes the legacies of colonialism and racial and gendered identities of the time. Antarctica, the White Continent, far from being a blank - and white - canvas, is revealed to be full of colour. Gould argues that the medium matters and that the practices of observation in art, anthropology and science determine how we see and what we know. Stories of exploration and open-air watercolour painting, of weather experiments and ethnographic collecting, of evolution and extinction, are interwoven to raise important questions for our times. Revisiting Antarctica through the archive becomes the urgent endeavour to imagine an inhabitable planetary future.

The Complete Rocky Heavyweight Collection
39,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

This is the film that catapulted Sylvester Stallone into the international spotlight and launched one of the most successful series of films in movie history, This is the story of a loser, a two bit boxer from Philadelphia, who gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. Stallone's performance is as powerful as his character's punches in the ring. This is one of the most exciting action movies you will ever see. Rocky is the simple story of a man whom fate chooses for a shot at glory in what has otherwise been an ordinary life. And while this subject matter is nothing new, it was unusual for Hollywood to release an old-fashioned 'feel-good' movie in the seventies, a decade whose films were mostly unconventional in attitude and anti-establishment in tone. Rocky is, of course, a fairy tale, but by grounding its characters in an everyday reality, the filmmakers were able to make them seem real and alive. And making the major contribution to that sense of reality was Sylvester Stallone, an out-of-work actor/writer whose faith in himself took him from utter obscurity to world-wide fame and fortune virtually overnight. Rocky II It's the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history. Writer-director-star Sylvester Stallone succeeds in creating a powerful feel-good movie. After club fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) goes the distance with the world heavyweight champion, boxing fans clamor for a rematch. But Rocky, having sustained massive injuries in the bout, announces his retirement. Though he tries to make a new life for himself, Rocky realizes that he can't escape his true calling. The ring beckons once more, and the Italian Stallion must prepare for the fight of his life. Rocky III Rocky battles his most powerful adversary yet - the ferocious Clubber Lang (Mr. T) - in this hard-hitting actioner that comes out swinging with adventure, humor and emotionally charged human drama. For what may be the most exciting and fast-paced film in the series, Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars with explosive passion and intensity. As Rocky Balboa (Stallone) fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang KOs Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent that the Italian Stallion has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky receives encouragement from an unlikely ally: his old nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). With Creed's help, Rocky strives to regain the eye of the tiger before confronting Lang in a grueling rematch for the world heavyweight championship. Rocky IV East meets West when Rocky takes on a vicious Soviet fighter who literally killed his last opponent! Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars in this war between nations, in which the only battle is fought in a boxing ring. Rocky Balboa (Stallone) proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union. This time, Rocky's training regimen takes him to icy Siberia, where he prepares for a globally televised match in the heart of Moscow. But nothing can truly prepare him for what he's about to face - a powerfully charged fight to the finish, in which he must defend not only himself, but also the honor of his country! Rocky V The Italian Stallion rediscovers his roots in this exciting, thrill-packed drama that reunites Sylvester Stallone with the Oscar-winning director of the original Rocky. Upon returning home from his latest triumph, Rocky Balboa (Stallone) learns that all his money has been lost by an unscrupulous financial advisor. To make matters worse, his fight-related injuries force his retirement from the ring. So Rocky, his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) and his son Rocky Jr. (Sage Stallone) move to their old, low-rent neighborhood in South Philadelphia. There, the fighter must resolve the deep-rooted resentment held by his son, a bitterness that grows when Rocky trains Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), a young boxer who soon rises to national prominence. When Tommy turns against his mentor and publicly taunts him, Rocky knows he must fight once more. Rocky Balboa Armed with a highly credible heart-wrenching story, Sylvester Stallone leaps back in to the ring in this knockout final chapter as one of the most iconic characters in the history of motion pictures! Since retiring, Rocky reminisces about his glory days for the locals at his Philly diner, Adrian's. But his quiet world is shattered when the current reigning champion (Antonio Tarver) loses to a virtual, in his-prime Balboa in a computer-simulated match and challenges the retired Italian Stallion to the real thing! Never one to back down, Rocky does the unthinkable and agrees to the fight of his life...pushing himself to the breaking point to go the distance one last time.

Atticus Finch: The Biography , Hörbuch, Digital...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Who was the real Atticus Finch? A prize-winning historian reveals the man behind the legend. The publication of Go Set a Watchman in 2015 forever changed how we think about Atticus Finch. Once seen as a paragon of decency, he was reduced to a small-town racist. How are we to understand this transformation?   In Atticus Finch, historian Joseph Crespino draws on exclusive sources to reveal how Harper Lee's father provided the central inspiration for each of her books. A lawyer and newspaperman, A. C. Lee was a principled opponent of mob rule, yet he was also a racial paternalist. Harper Lee created the Atticus of Watchman out of the ambivalence she felt toward white southerners like him.  But when a militant segregationist movement arose that mocked his values, she revised the character in To Kill a Mockingbird to defend her father and to remind the South of its best traditions. A story of family and literature amid the upheavals of the 20th century, Atticus Finch is essential to understanding Harper Lee, her novels, and her times. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Woren.
