Peter has had more identities than he can remember and suffered pains and humiliations he longs to forget. But, whether spy or prisoner, slave or propaganda tool, none of his roles has brought the one thing he wants above all: freedom. THE CHILDREN'S WAR Bad papers. That's how Peter's nightmare began. Living in contemporary Europe under Nazi domination -- more than fifty years after the truce among the North American Union, the Third Reich, and the Soviet Union -- Peter has struggled to make sense of the reign of terror that governs his world. Now, arrested for bearing a false identity, he is pulled full-force into a battle against Nazi oppression. The crusade for freedom that belonged to generations past is now Peter's legacy -- and his future depends not on running away, but on fighting back. Escaping a Nazi prison camp and joining the Underground Home Army, Peter dedicates himself to breaking down the system that betrayed him. But by facing the evil at the heart of the Nazi political machine, Peter falls deeper into a web of intrigue and adventure that risks everything he holds dear -- in this life and for the sake of future generations. A disturbingly real vision of what could have been, The Children's War is a page-turning epic thriller with a mesmerizing premise and an unforgettable cast of characters. J.N. Stroyar's searingly authentic, impassioned vision of human triumph over the forces of corruption and cruelty stands as a powerful tribute to the millions who have sacrificed and died in the name of freedom.

How did a sleepy New England fishing village become a gay mecca? In this dynamic history, Karen Christel Krahulik explains why Provincetown, Massachusetts--alternately known as “Land's End,” “Cape-tip,” “Cape-end,” and, to some, “Queersville, U.S.A”--has meant many things to many people. Provincetown tells the story of this beguiling coastal town, from its early history as a mid-nineteenth century colonial village to its current stature as a bustling gay tourist destination. It details the many cultures and groups—Yankee artists, Portuguese fishermen, tourists—that have comprised and influenced Provincetown, and explains how all of them, in conjunction with larger economic and political forces, come together to create a gay and lesbian mecca. Through personal stories and historical accounts, Provincetown reveals the fascinating features that have made Provincetown such a textured and colorful destination: its fame as the landfall of the Mayflower Pilgrims, charm as an eccentric artists’ colony, and allure as a Dionysian playground. It also hints at one of Provincetown’s most dramatic economic changes: its turn from fishing village to resort town. From a history of fishing economies to a history of tourism, Provincetown, in the end, is as eclectic and vibrant as the city itself.

A progressive President decided the country needed to increase the percentage of children who are inoculated against childhood diseases. When she was elected 40% of parents refused to vaccinate their children. She and her Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) wanted to improve the percentage into the high nineties. The Secretary held a meeting with the CEOs of the leading pharmaceutical companies to see their ideas, she was surprised when one of the CEO's asked to see her privately because his company, BNX Pharmaceuticals had been working on what they called an invisible delivery system to embed drugs into other regular foods and drinks.The Secretary was excited by the news, she agreed to BNX's demands, one of which was BNX had the exclusive right to supply the HHS, a large financial grant, and the right to have the FDA give them a fast pass to speed up their market entry. BNX developed a new blend of inoculations was added to a new line of energy drinks targeted towards children. An aspect unforeseen by BNX was the new energy drink was almost addictive. The more the children drank, the more they wanted. BNX's CEO signed partnership agreements with bottling companies, candy companies, even those that made the butter poured on movie popcorn. Hundreds of products containing the BNX drug arrived on the market, all with had various amounts of the new inoculation. Some had a small amount, some had many times the amounts recommended by BNX.BNX wanted to test their new drug in a small secluded area, the President and Secretary of HHS selected New York City as the test site to roll out the new invisible inoculations. HHS ordered every milk carton supplied to school children for the upcoming school year to have the new drugs in them. The parents in the City weren't told in advance of the drugs in their children's milk, none were offered the ability to 'op-out.' Every child received the milk and as many as they requested. What the Department of HHS didn't know was that BNX hadn't run any tests to determine the limits of how much of the new drug was to much or not enough. HHS and the new President had pushed the drug into circulation in order to keep a campaign promise before the next election.The new blended in inoculation hadn't been tested in high doses. Another test undone was what the effect would be when massive doses were combined with existing childhood vaccinations. When BNX's new inoculation was combined with the children's regular childhood vaccinations the combination altered the child's DNA. The children became very violent. They developed a taste for human flesh washed down with blood. The changed children grew long claw like fingernails which ripped out their parent's throats. Once the children changed, they became known as changelings. Their eyes became bright yellow, they lost the ability to speak. Their minds expanded to the extend they could mentally communicate with each other. What one saw and felt, they all did. Light hurt the changelings, so they moved into tunnels. The changelings quickly took over the New York City subways where they had a ready food supply. The first child to change took place on live television. The viewing public was shocked, they thought it was a freak one-off event, had the station been able to secure the first changeling they might have been able to stop the wave that changed hundreds of thousands and cost millions of lives. The government attempted to seal New York City to isolate the changelings, by the time they began the sealing, it was to late. The changelings had already moved into additional cities along the East Coast. Before long, the changelings grew stronger while most humans refused to take action against who they saw as children. The changelings grew strong enough to threaten the world with a war the humans began to think was unwinnable. This is the first in a new series that tells the story of the Zombie Children's War.

A visionary novel of Northern Ireland, back in print! The Children's War David Bellin Michael Connaught was an Ulster Protestant with a conscience, a compassionate man in an organization not noted for its compassion in 1973: The Royal Ulster Constabulary. Daniel O'Connell (named after the great Irish statesman and weary of it) was an eighteen-year-old Catholic, a charismatic leader with a bizarre and violent blueprint to mobilize children into an awesome new force in Ulster's civil war. In this prophetic novel, a man and a youth from opposing worlds become friends, then wily foes amid a nightmare of shootings, assassinations and terrorist bombings. As they duel, each finds his illusions burned away until only the most elemental truths remain about human folly and human purpose. Drawn into their vortex are a militant IRA leader with a humane side; a saintly priest with a worldly side; an obsessed female terrorist who will not wait for anything she wants, and a lovely Irish girl prepared to wait forever. "Arresting first novel...a satisfying novel that illuminates compassionate souls on both sides of a terrible struggle"--Publishers Weekly "Contemporary fiction with something substantive to say...builds to power and excitement"--Library Journal "A gripping story, well told"--Bookviews "Commendable...lends insight into the scarred minds of the people involved...strong supporting cast and rich language"--VOYA "(Readers) will be rewarded with strong characters and an incisive vision of the Irish conflict&hellipThe Children's War is a moving tale"--West Coast Review of Books "Enjoyed reading the novel...conveys well the senselessness of the violence in Northern Ireland"--National Catholic News Service "Convincingly portrays life in Ulster where neither predator nor victim is in control of his existence"--Catholic Tribune David Bellin is a retired advertising executive, the winner of a CLIO award, the ad world's 'Oscar.' He and his wife live in the vineyard and dairy farm countryside of New York State's Finger Lakes. An avid amateur historian, he followed The Children's War account of conflict in Northern Ireland with Sherman's Chaplain, a U.S. Civil War novel about an idealistic young preacher swept into the brutality of combat. Civil War News noted, "David Bellin has woven the events of 1864 and 1865 into a very enjoyable, enlightening and thought-provoking work of historical fiction." He switched genres with his third volume, The Marble King and Other Stories, leaving armed conflict behind for a short story collection praised by San Francisco Review as "Enticing and beautifully written...there is a reality to the settings and characters reminiscent of John Cheever's short stories, with some of the edginess and darkness found in Flannery O'Connor's writings." Next on his schedule is Beating Svetlana, fiction inspired by the world of international chess, called by Bellin, "An endless source of intense drama and wacky humor, usually at the same time."

This true story of an innocent boy growing up in Hitler’s Germany is “a unique memoir…highly recommended.”—Midwest Book Review Peter and his brothers saw the war not as military or national history, but as the adventure of everyday living. They experienced bombs dropping, soldiers occupying their home, and prisoners of war marching through the streets—all of which seemed like mere intrusions into their childhood existence. They not only survived, but thrived, during The Children's War. The strength of family ties carried the Gawenda boys through the war and shaped the author’s perspective, making The Children's War an uplifting reading experience. Gawenda draws on his childhood in Germany during WWII to reflect the impact the war had on children. Born in the Third Reich under Hitler, Gawenda, through a child's point of view, shares his family's heartbreak, joy, humor, and cunning during their days in Oberglogau before their desperate flight from Russian conquerors to safety in Bavaria.

From U.S. soldiers having to fight children in Afghanistan and Iraq to juvenile terrorists in Sri Lanka to Palestine, the new, younger face of battle is a terrible reality of 21st century warfare. Indeed, the very first American soldier killed by hostile fire in the “War on Terrorism” was shot by a fourteen-year-old Afghan boy. Children at War is the first comprehensive examination of a disturbing and escalating phenomenon: the use of children as soldiers around the globe. Interweaving explanatory narrative with the voices of child soldiers themselves, P.W. Singer, an internationally recognized expert in modern warfare, introduces the brutal reality of conflict, where children are sent off to fight in war-torn hotspots from Colombia and the Sudan to Kashmir and Sierra Leone. He explores the evolution of this phenomenon, how and why children are recruited, indoctrinated, trained, and converted to soldiers and then lays out the consequences for global security, with a special case study on terrorism. With this established, he lays out the responses that can end this horrible practice. What emerges is not only a compelling and clarifying read on the darker reality of modern warfare, but also a clear and urgent call for action.

From the dangers of London streets during the Blitz to working on the high seas in the Merchant Navy during the Atlantic Convoy, children were on the frontline of battle during the Second World War. In Sean Longden's gripping retelling of the conflict, he explores how the war impacted upon a whole generation who lost their innocence at home and abroad, on the battlefield and the home front. Through extensive interviews and research, Longden uncovers previously untold stories of heroism and courage: the eleven year old boy who was sunk on the SS Benares and left in frozen water for two days; the teenage Girl Guide awarded the George Medal for bravery; the merchant seaman sunk three times by the age of seventeen; the fourteen year old who signed up for the army three times before finally seeing action in the Normandy campaign; the fourteen year old 'Boy Buglers' of the Royal Marines on active service onboard battleships; as well as the harrowing experiences of the boy who was survived the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster; the horrors of being a child captive in the German PoW camps. Blitz Kids will change forever the way one sees the relationship between the Second World War and the generation - our grandparents and great grandparents- who bravely faced the challenge of Nazism. Allowing them to tell their stories in their own words, Sean Longden brings both the horrors and the humour of young lives lived in troubled times. The book includes stories of: The seventeen year old boy who signed up 4 times before he made it onto the beaches at Normandy. The Girl Guide who saved a family during the blitz. The teenage merchant seaman who was sunk three times. What it was like to be a teenage POW after the disasters of Dunkirk. Praise for Sean Longden: "A rising name in military history ... able to uncover the missing stories of the Second World War." The Guardian 'A tenacious sleuth of Second World War secrets.' Andrew Roberts. 'At times you have to stop and remind yourself that you're reading history and not an 007 thriller." The Soldier.
