The Heroes of ‘45 by Ron Mielech The Heroes of ‘45 by Ron Mielech is an enchanting tale of historical fiction; however, this could very easily be a story told about life in a small Kentucky town during the war. The action takes place in 1945, following thirteen-year-old Richard Townsend. During the war, Richard’s father, C.F., continues his legal practice on the home front, while others of Richard’s family and friends are serving their country at war. Richard is pleased that his father is safe but is disappointed that he has not served in the military. Richard could not possibly have known at the beginning of summer how much his life would change. Through a course of events that took place by summer’s end, he would realize that you don’t have to fight a war to be a hero. He witnessed the heroic acts of others, including his father. Once he realized all of the truly good things his father did for others, he was proud to follow in his footsteps. And then, came the end of the war and life went on and the past gave way to the future.

From the men and women associated with the American Revolution and Civil War to the seminal figures in the struggles for civil and women's rights, Americans have been fascinated with icons of great achievement, or at least reputation. But who spins today's narratives about American heroism, and to what end? In Where Have All the Heroes Gone?, Bruce Peabody and Krista Jenkins draw on the concept of the American hero to show an important gap between the views of political and media elites and the attitudes of the mass public. The authors contend that important changes over the past half century, including the increasing scope of new media and people's deepening political distrust, have drawn both politicians and producers of media content to the hero meme. However, popular reaction to this turn to heroism has been largely skeptical. As a result, the conversations and judgments of ordinary Americans, government officials, and media elites are often deeply divergent. Investigating the story of American heroes over the past five decades provides a narrative that can teach us about such issues as political socialization, institutional trust, and political communication.

On September 11, 1944, the British submarine "Porpoise" slipped quietly from Fremantle Harbour, bound for Indonesia. It was carrying the 23 Australian and British members of Operation Rimau who, under the leadership of the remarkable Lieutenant-Colonel Ivan Lyon of the Gordon Highlanders, intended to repeat the successful Jaywick raid of 1943 by blowing up 60 ships in Japanese-occupied Singapore Harbour, 19 days later, the preliminary part of the operation successfully completed, the submarine commander bade farewell to the raiders at Pedjantan Island, promising to return to pick them up in 38 days' time. A handful of Chinese and Malays and the conquering Japanese were the only people ever to see the 23 men again. According to the scant official post-war record, the mission was an utter failure. All of the party were captured of killed - ten of them beheaded in Singapore only five weeks before the Japanese surrender in, it was claimed, a ceremonial execution. The fate of eleven of the others remains officially unknown. After a 31 year search, Major Tom Hall, with the assistance of writer Lynette Silver, has overturned the official version and uncovered the truth. Aided by thousands of Japanese and Allied documents and by the first-hand accounts of several Indonesians and Malays, sole witnesses to the events of 1944, they have established the fate of every member of the party and unravelled the story of "The Heroes of Rimau" - a story that has for 45 years been all but lost, distorted by hearsay and fantasy, by military cover-ups and conspiracy, by official bungling, ineptitude and apathy. This book not only chronicles a feat of extraordinary daring in the face of overwhelming odds - a gripping tale of inspired courage, self-sacrifice and eventual tragedy - it also exposes the appalling sequence of events which has, until now, resulted in the shameful suppression of the truth about one of the most amazing stories to emerge from World War II.

Assigned to administer the closure of a crumbling inner city Athenaeum, Mears finds himself caught up in an extraordinary cross-worlds venture, where the heroes of his comic books, pulp magazines, and fantastic novels fill its landscape. His only route back to the sanity of his own world lies in coordinating these disparate heroes into an unlikely team, banding them to oppose a fiendishly evil master-mind's plot to unleash unspeakable dark gods upon the world. Drawn from a vast trove of pulp and super-hero sources, from H. Rider Haggard through Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard to H. P. Lovecraft and Sax Rohmer, NIGHT OF THE HEROES plunges the reader into a bizarre world where anything ever read about becomes very much alive -- and invariably kicking!

Although the Antarctic ice pack and some offshore islands had been sighted and even landed upon briefly as early as the 1820s, it was not until an eccentric Anglo-Norwegian explorer, Carsten F. Borchgrevink, went ashore in 1895 that a human being set foot on the Antarctic continent. Borchgrevink, snubbed by the British establishment, had stolen a march on several planned competing expeditions from Germany and Scandinavia. ø Borchgrevink returned to Antarctica in 1899 with a party that was the first to winter over on the continent. Regrettably, bad weather and unscalable mountains limited their forays inland. Borchgrevink's survival was proof that with adequate supplies, the Antarctic winter was survivable, and that with a better geographic position, the enormous unknown of the continent could be investigated. ø Borchgrevink galvanized the British geographical authorities who had come to consider polar exploration their exclusive province. Led by Sir Clements Markham of the Royal Geographic Society, the British keenly felt his blow to their national pride delivered by an explorer they regarded as an arrogant upstart. The RGS pushed forward with its plans, and a tragic competition to be the first to reach the South Pole was set in motion between the British and the Scandinavians. ø This work is anøaccount of the first tentative human gropings in Antarctica, concentrating on the coalescing of official and popular attitudes that later resulted in the polar races of Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen, which dominate the story of the "Heroic Era" of Antarctic exploration, from 1901 to 1922.

Shelled into ruins at the onset of the Bosnian War (1993), Treca Gimnazija, a high school in central Sarajevo, became a Owar school, O adapting to wartime conditions by conducting classes in the dispersed basement classrooms in neighborhoods across the city. Education scholar David M. Berman, who interviewed many of Treca GimnazijaOs students, teachers, and administrators during the siege of Sarajevo, 1992-1995, as well as after the war, chronicles the human drama of everyday life in a high school operating under the constant threat of enemy guns and mortar fire. The real story of the siege of Sarajevo, put in educational terms, is the localized adaptation of the staff and students of the school who implemented administrative resolutions and directives to keep the physically damaged school open. These educators and students of Treca Gimnazija, one of 13 secondary schools that were destroyed during the siege, tell the stories of their own personal war in the Obattle for the mindO and chronicle their shared experience in this important and inspiring book

Football is today a significant part of every culture. It is a language without borders. Football can fulfill what people need when it comes to excitement. Today, football in general and the World Cup in particular are means to connect people together, regardless of their race, religion, job, social class, or nationality. In 1966, when the whole world had its eye on England for the World Cup, I had not been born yet. However, it became my favorite World Cup as I grew older and turned into an enthusiastic football fan. World Cup 1966 was a tremendous event that united people across the globe at a time when the world was torn apart between the capitalist and Communist parties, a time when peace seemed like an unreachable dream, a time when your skin color decided your faith, and a time when Vietnam was losing her children to a never-ending war. World Cup 1966 offered the world a moment to breathe! It was the first time the tournament was broadcast on live television, providing millions of football fans the opportunity to forget about their problems for a little while. Four hundred million people worldwide witnessed the moment when England, the mother of modern football, was crowned the champion. It was the victory that still remains England's most celebrated victory in football. by retelling this story, I hope to bring back a part of these unforgettable memories.

Five men emerge from the remnants of destruction with extraordinary new powers. They are humankind's last hope, but they cannot survive this devastated world alone. Simon Japp's violent past will haunt him forever. But when he somehow travels through time to a dark future where civilization is all but destroyed, he sees an opportunity for redemption. As he becomes familiar with this new, overgrown world of jungle-like cities and overgrown shopping malls, Simon is determined to help the Resistance movement against the immortal Strangers--the repressive, controlling race that has taken over civilization. He can't afford to be distracted, even by the beautiful, soft-spoken woman who haunts his thoughts. Sage Corrigan is the product of a rigid cult that has militant initiatives to repopulate the world in order to rebuild civilization. She's learned not to trust, but there's something about Simon and his empty, haunted eyes that tug at her heart. When they must pose as husband and wife to infiltrate the cult, they find that their staged affection is only hiding the real heat boiling beneath the facade....and when Simon must confront his past once again, he must make a decision between what's right...and what his heart desires.
