11 days in December : [Christmas at the Bulge, 1944] by Stanley Weintraub( Recording )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"11 Days in December: Christmas at the Bulge, 1944" tells the dramatic story of one of the grimmest points of World War II and its Christmas Eve turning toward victory. In December 1944, the Allied forces thought their campaign for securing Europe was in its final stages. Hitler's army had retreated, and Eisenhower and his generals expected to finish him off once the snow melted. Yet Germany had one last great surprise attack still planned. Hitler's secretly massed forces suddenly broke through Allied lines in the Ardennes Forest and threatened to recover much of Belgium and beyond. This was the start of some of the most intense fighting in World War II: the Battle of the Bulge. Alone in a chapel on December 23, 1944, after ten days of horrific weather conditions and warfare, General Patton famously asked God, "Sir, whose side are you on?"
Ringworld by Larry Niven( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A modern science-fiction classic, "Ringworld" won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel in 1970. I myself have dreamed up an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets, build a ring 93 million miles in radius one Earth orbit which would make it 600 million miles long. If we have the mass of Jupiter to work with, and if we make it a million miles wide, we get a thickness of about a thousand meters. The Ringworld would thus be much sturdier than a Dyson sphere. "There are other advantages. We can spin it for gravity. A rotation on its axis of 770 miles/second would give the Ringworld one gravity outward. We wouldn't even have to roof it over. Put walls a thousand miles high at each rim, aimed at the sun, and very little of the air will leak over the edges."--Larry Niven

Jefferson's war : America's first war on terror, 1801-1805 by Joseph Wheelan( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two centuries ago, without congressional or public debate, a president who is thought of today as peaceable, Thomas Jefferson, launched America's first war on foreign soil, a war against terror. The enemy was Muslim; the war was waged unconventionally, with commandos, native troops, and encrypted intelligence, and launched from foreign bases. For nearly two hundred years, the Barbary pirates had haunted the Mediterranean, enslaving tens of thousands of Europeans and extorting millions of dollars from their countries in a mercenary holy war against Christendom. Sailing in sleek corsairs built for speed and plunder, the Barbary pirates attacked European and American merchant shipping with impunity, triumphing as much by terror as force of arms. The author traces the events leading to Jefferson's belief that peace with the Barbary States and respect from Europe could be achieved only through the "medium of war."

Doctor yourself : [natural healing that works] by Andrew W Saul( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human body evolved to live well and fight off disease on a supply of only a dozen or so essential nutrients. Unfortunately, modern meat-laden, high-sugar diets provide catastrophically inadequate levels of those nutrients. Scientific research consistently indicates nationwide vitamin and mineral deficiencies in our country, and we spend over a trillion dollars each year on disease care. Andrew Saul has seen enough of this situation, and in Doctor Yourself, he gives you the power you need to change it. Dr. Saul explodes the myth that an army of medical specialists and pharmaceutical drugs are necessary to maintain our health. Using the protocols laid out in Doctor Yourself, you not only can prevent disease from getting a foothold in the first place, you can also cure yourself of illness already in progress, without resorting to drugs or surgery

Generals in bronze : interviewing the commanders of the Civil War by William B Styple( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the decades that followed the American Civil War, artist James E. Kelly (1855-1933) conducted in-depth interviews with more than forty Union generals in an effort to accurately portray them in their greatest moment of glory. "I had always felt a great lack of certain personal details," Kelly explained. "I made up my mind to ask from the living officers every question that I would have asked Washington or his generals had they posed for me, such as what they considered the principal incidents in their career and particulars about costumes and surroundings." When, during one interview, a general declared, "I don't see how you can show this in a picture," Kelly responded, "Just tell me the facts, and I'll attend to the picture." By recording those stirring facts, Kelly left us a truly unique picture of the great figures of the American Civil War
