The Imperial War Museum Book of the Western Front: Malcolm Brown
´´This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less.´´-Publishers Weekly (starred review) When the Great War engulfed Europe in 1914, the United States and the Confederate States of America, bitter enemies for five decades, entered the fray on opposite sides: the United States aligned with the newly strong Germany, while the Confederacy joined forces with their longtime allies, Britain and France. But it soon became clear to both sides that this fight would be different-that war itself would never be the same again. For this was to be a protracted, global conflict waged with new and chillingly efficient innovations-the machine gun, the airplane, poison gas, and trench warfare. Across the Americas, the fighting raged like wildfire on multiple and far-flung fronts. As President Theodore Roosevelt rallied the diverse ethnic groups of the northern states-Irish and Italians, Mormons and Jews-Confederate President Woodrow Wilson struggled to hold together a Confederacy still beset by ignorance, prejudice, and class divisions. And as the war thundered on, southern blacks, oppressed for generations, found themselves fatefully drawn into a climactic confrontation . . .

Das vorliegende Buch ist eine historische Darstellung des Hochgebirgskrieges von 1915 bis 1918. Aus Originalberichten von hüben und drüben, aus zeitgenössischen Bildern, Skizzen und schematischen Darstellungen ersteht das Bild dieser in der Vergangenheit und, wie zu hoffen ist, auch in der Zukunft einmaligen »Front in Fels und Eis«. Ein touristischer Anhang schlägt die Brücke zur Gegenwart, indem er die heutige Situation und Begehbarkeit des ehemaligen Frontgebietes aufzeigt.
Juggernaut, minus one tyre, stood without, sheltering under a rick-cloth that did duty for a garage. A car of ancient and composite design--partly Daimler, partly Darracq, and with a suspicion of half a dozen makers' parts in the tout ensemble--the wondrous, once-discarded vehicle had been given to Peter and Malcolm Carr by a cousin of theirs. Being of a mechanical turn of mind, the two brothers soon reduced the motor to a state of servile tractability, although there was hardly a thoroughfare in Christchurch whose buildings did not bear a more or less permanent record of Juggernaut's frailties.

A wedding planner who specializes in more...unusual ceremonies, Anna´s client list includes everything from nudists to paintballers to Little Red Riding Hood enthusiasts. So when her photographer up and quits during a wedding blitz in Hawaii, Anna makes an unconventional decision. She hires a hot Marine to be her new photographer. Little does she know, Grant Patton is the best man in one of her weddings. He´s so perfect he´s practically a Boy Scout - if Boy Scouts were big, ripped Marines with gorgeous gray eyes, and good at, oh, everything. Especially sex. In fact, his only flaw seems to be that he hates marriage as much as she does. But Anna suspects the sexy Boy Scout routine is a cover, and if he wants this thing between them to be about more than sex, Grant must reveal the dark past he´s fought so hard to hide....
