The narrative takes you through three years with the Ohio Air National Guard starting in 1947 when the author was seventeen years of age. The author takes you along with him on his flying adventures with the Air Guard. This unit, the 112th Bomb Squadron (L), was equipped with Douglas B-26 Invaders. These light bombers were real “hot rods” for their day. He takes you along on three “Summer Encampments” prior to the 112th being activated and taken into the United States Air Force in 1950. This was the result of the hostilities that broke out in Korea in June of 1950. The Air Guard really didn’t prepare the author for life in the active military. But he learned and survived. The story initially takes you to Lawson Field, which is the air field attached to Fort Benning, GA. There the 112th became part of the 117th Photo Reconnaissance Wing and the aircraft became RB-26s. Then, in 1951, the author was transferred up to Langley Field, VA where he became a member of the Armament Section of the 154th Fighter/Bomber Squadron, part of the 136th Fighter Bomber Wing. This unit was equipped with Republic F-84 Thunderjets. From there it was on to the west coast by train and subsequently to Japan and Korea by plane, exciting modes of travel in those days. Experience life, as it was, in the Air Force in a rear area combat zone.

An intimate, bracingly intelligent debut novel about a millennial Irish expat who becomes entangled in a love triangle with a male banker and a female lawyer Ava moved to Hong Kong to find happiness, but so far, it isn't working out. Since she left Dublin, she's been spending her days teaching English to rich children--she's been assigned the grammar classes because she lacks warmth--and her nights avoiding petulant roommates in her cramped apartment. When Ava befriends Julian, a witty British banker, he offers a shortcut into a lavish life her meager salary could never allow. Ignoring her feminist leanings and her better instincts, Ava finds herself moving into Julian's apartment, letting him buy her clothes, and, eventually, striking up a sexual relationship with him. When Julian's job takes him back to London, she stays put, unsure where their relationship stands. Enter Edith. A Hong Kong-born lawyer, striking and ambitious, Edith takes Ava to the theater and leaves her tulips in the hallway. Ava wants to be her--and wants her. Ava has been carefully pretending that Julian is nothing more than an absentee roommate, so when Julian announces that he's returning to Hong Kong, she faces a fork in the road. Should she return to the easy compatibility of her life with Julian or take a leap into the unknown with Edith? Politically alert, heartbreakingly raw, and dryly funny, Exciting Times is thrillingly attuned to the great freedoms and greater uncertainties of modern love. In stylish, uncluttered prose, Naoise Dolan dissects the personal and financial transactions that make up a life--and announces herself as a singular new voice.

Paul Vaughan finds himself hopefully seeking his fortune - and a profession - in post-war London. The 8:32 to Loughborough Junction takes him to an old-fashioned family firm, a little world where everyone is polite, where the entire office empties for the annual outing, and everyone is allowed to see the Royals go past. As his career progresses, the view across the rooftops of Camberwell from a tiny office is exchanged for the grandiose perspectives of the palace designed for the British Medical Association by Lutyens, and eventually journalism and broadcasting become the author's metier. This volume has the same wit and appetite for the bizarre details of life that distinguished its predecessor.

The latest craze in Bible prophecy is the four blood moons and the Lords feast days. No doubt these are important biblical signposts. However, these signposts do not provide the all-important context of relating to the timing of any specific biblical event (i.e., rapture of the church, Antichrist signing the seven-year covenant with Israel) and what do the four blood moons mean with regard to being a harbinger or heralding a significant event in Israels history. In this riveting book, James Koontz examines what the great sign means with regard to providing context for the four blood moons and the Lords fall feasts. Since Christs resurrection and ascension, the all important question for His disciples and for many of us now is when is Christ coming back for His bride? Additionally, when will the Antichrist sign the peace covenant with Israel, when will the great tribulation begin, and when will Christs second coming be? These are all very important questions that the great sign helps us understand, being the key to unlocking Bible prophecy in our time.

Growing up in a poor family, a poor community, and a poor state is no unusual set of circumstances that has produced many positive and unfortunate outcomes in the lives of people everywhere. What is rare is to have these never-ending hardships remembered in detail with an innocence that makes one wonder why such an obvious lack of resentment, but this is precisely what the author has done. How this was achieved is due to an innate drive to overcome and a conviction that surely this is not the way growing up need be. No matter the depth of depravity, there are assets that can be taken advantage of. With maybe just a little more than average intelligence, and exceptional physical coordination that included the ability to run fast, a deprived father’s sports background, and a wonder and curiosity that developed out of necessity and a love for nature, Williams left for the military life that ultimately answered many of these deep questions that even the Creek Bank School of Learning could not provide answers to.

Not quite four months after the Western Region's election of October 10, 1965, did the localized mayhem in that Region find its way furiously into the center of the nation on January 15, 1966! It was like a whirl-wind of nothing but anarchy and lawlessness. The serious aftermath of the marred and rigged election was that it acted as the last straw that broke the Carmel's back, providing immediate reason for the army to overthrow the government of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe. Anarchy ensued; a counter coup led to the death of Major-General Ironsi. Callous barbarous massacre of thousands of easterners in the North followed. With their lives in jeopardy, easterners fled for safety to eastern region; refugee crisis followed. To guarantee their safety, easterners seceded from Nigeria and on May 30th 1967, formed an independent and sovereign nation of the Republic of Biafra. Determined to bring Easterners back, on July 6, 1967 Nigeria invaded Biafra; waged a gruesome thirty-month-civil war against Biafra. Nigeria blockaded Biafra on land, sea and air, to prevent food from entering Biafra. A malnutrition disease, Kwashiorkor that caused the deaths of thousands of Biafrans, followed. Nigeria bombed Biafran civilians, killing thousands. On January 12, 1970 the war ended leaving more than three million people dead in a war that was totally avoidable!
