[PDF] Air and Sea Power in World War I: Combat and Experience in the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Navy (International Library of War Studies) PDF Download



Book Description

Author: Maryam Philpott
Publication Date: 2013-05-30
The Great War tore the fabric of Europe apart, killing over 35 million men and challenging the notion of heroism in war. Air and Sea Power in World War I focuses on the experience of World War I from the perspective of British pilots and sailors themselves, to demonstrate that the army-centric view of war studies has been too limited. The Royal Flying Corps, created in 1912, adapted quickly to the needs of modern warfare, driven by the enthusiasm of its men. In contrast, the lack of modernisation in the Royal Navy, despite the unveiling of HMS Dreadnought in 1906, undermined Britain’s dominance of the seas. By considering five key aspects of the war experience, this book analyses how motivation was created and sustained. Featuring new primary source material, including the journals of servicemen themselves, this book will be essential reading for students and scholars of World War I and of Naval, Aviation and Military History._x000D_

[PDF Download] FLYING FURY: Five Years in the Royal Flying Corps [Illustrated Edition] Epub, PDF Ebook Free



Book Description

Author: Major James Thomas McCudden VC DSO and Bar MC and Bar MM
Publication Date: 2013-06-20
[Illustrated Edition - contains 30 photos of the author, his squadron, planes and exploits]

The highest scoring British Air Ace reveals his daily life at the front, in the air and in combat with the Germans above the Western Front.

In the muddy trenches of the Western front few rankers would have considered that they would achieve field rank of major and international celebrity. In the skies above the shell-torn landscape, any man with enough talent, daring and skill could hope to become a ‘Flying Ace’ by claiming five or more victories over enemy aviators. Such an adventurous warrior was James McCudden; born in 1895 in Gillingham, Kent, he enlisted in the Royal Engineers in 1910 as soon as he could. But he was smitten with the service in the air after a flight in his brothers plane in 1913 and transferred to the Royal Flying Corps. However he was only an engineer in 1914, whose dreams of flying his own aircraft may have been dashed had it not been for the advent of the First World War. Once in France despite his modest rank he was allowed to go up with his squadron and act as an observer in a two seater plane. After much good service as an observer his superiors put forward him for pilot training in 1916.

McCudden’s tally of the enemy over the next two years would rank him among the greatest of the World War One Aces; he claimed some 57 enemy aircraft even three in a single day in 1918. His exploits in the air were legendary, surviving an attack by the Red Baron himself, he pioneered new tactics that enabled him the edge of his enemy by using his engineering skill to fine tune his aircraft and give it the ability to climb higher than the enemy. He was awarded the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order with Bar, Military Cross with Bar and a Military Medal and the French Croix de Guerre for his daring, bravery and skill. It is with a sad irony that it was not his German foe that eventually ended his outstanding military service but a flying accident in 1918. He was only 23 at the time.

His own exploits, adventures, tactics and escapes are best left to him in his own words, but suffice to say despite his modest retelling of his life in a day-by-day fashion remains both dramatic and engaging.

[PDF Download] The Political Bubble: Why Australians Don’t Trust Politics PDF And Epub Free



Book Description

Author: Mark Latham
Publication Date: 2014-08-01

Australians once trusted the democratic process. While we got on with our lives, we assumed our politicians had our best interests at heart.

Not anymore. That trust has collapsed.

Mark Latham joined the Labor Party in the late 1970s hoping to improve people’s lives through parliamentary service. Twenty-five years later, the Opposition Leader ended up as disillusioned as the rest of us. The scorching honesty of The Latham Diaries ensured he’d burned his political bridges, but ostracism from the Canberra Club has its advantages.

In The Political Bubble Mark Latham is free to explore how parliamentary democracy has lost touch with the people it’s supposed to represent. As with most institutions at risk, politics has become more tribal, with left- and right-wing fanatics dominating formerly robust, mainstream parties.

After the disappointment of the Rudd/Gillard years, Tony Abbott promised to restore trust in Australian politics but, as with most of his promises, it was dispensable. The Political Bubble looks at the new government’s policies – how Abbott is adding to distrust, not solving the problem.

What can be done about this democratic deficit? Can our parliamentary system realign itself with community expectations or has politics become one long race to the bottom?

‘A brilliant analysis of Australia in the era of Tony Abbott and fanatical right-wing politics.’ ROBERT MANNE

Dennis Short thought his tour of duty was over…but now he has stepped into another war.

Short, a Navy medical corpsman stationed in Hawaii after his ordeal in Vietnam, is looking forward to his two-week excursion to the island of Kahoolawe. He’s there as the medic for a team of forward observers whose job is to coordinate the bombing, strafing, and shelling of the island’s massive target ranges. All he expects to do besides watching the fireworks is work on his tan and get in a little fishing and hunting on an exclusive, untamed preserve. But from the first day, he is plagued by an oppressive sense that he is being manipulated. Each night, he slips into a dreamlike world of half-human mythical creatures who tempt him, frighten him, force him to become part of their battles with one another.

He thought Vietnam was the way to hell. But a new portal is opening wide for him on a supposed island paradise.

Mixing distinctly diverse elements into a coherent story with success, Smeds has created one of the better fantasies to come out of the Vietnam experience.” –Publishers Weekly

[PDF] Glory Hole Dominatrix: A Forced Bi Femdom Story PDF Epub Free Download



Book Description

Author: Brett Olsen
Publication Date: 2013-01-28
In this extreme Femdom novelette of forced bisexuality, public humiliation and romantic and emotional masochism, a Dominant’s slave falls in love with Her…and the cruel Mistress decides to use that to make him do something he never thought he’d do…just for her.

Twenty-three years old and gorgeous, the sadistic Mistress Marilyn just got dumped by her boyfriend. She needs someone to take out her bitterness on…and Brett’s her most receptive slave. She decides to live her most taboo fantasy with this forty-something slave, who’s been undergoing regular “feminization training” at Marilyn’s dungeon for more than a year.

Brett, or “Britta” as she likes to call him, may be one of Marilyn’s most reliable sources of income — but he’s also falling in love with her. A truly cruel emotional sadist like Marilyn can’t resist using Brett to sate her anger at her ex-boyfriend…in a way that will change Brett forever.

Ordering Brett to pick her up at midnight for a “field trip,” Marilyn directs her slave to the freeway and out of the city — to a rest stop notorious as a gay public sex spot.

Knowing what his Mistress expects, Brett knows he can beg for mercy…but he can’t say no. He never says no to his Mistress. Not even when she orders him into a filthy men’s room to service cock for her pleasure. Not even when it’s a stranger’s cock…or even several of them. Brett never says no to his Mistress.

Before Marilyn’s “game” is over, Brett will find himself stuffed from both ends. He’ll obey her command to suck and fuck whatever comes through that hole. In the end, he’ll get a bitter, creamy reward for his troubles… and a confession by Mistress Marilyn that she does want to change their relationship after all. But will it be in the way Brett hoped, or Brett’s cruel younger Mistress break his heart…?

This 12,440 word story is a must for fans of forced femme and forced bi action. Breaking with the traditions of the genre, it brings real characters to life with vivid prose that’s as filthy as it is engaging.

Contains: Forced feminization, forced bisexuality, female dominant, male submissive, oral sex, anal sex, public sex, erotic humiliation, dominance and submission, relationship dynamics, emotional sadism and romantic masochism.

“Glory Hole Dominatrix” is an extreme and explicit erotic story of emotional Feminine Domination, public humiliation, forced bisexuality, sexual submission, forced feminization, anonymous sex and romantic sadism and emotional masochism.
