Book excerpt: February 20, 1959, the Canadian prime minister stood before the House of Commons to announce that his government had decided to cancel the CF-105 Avro Arrow supersonic fighter-interceptor program. What were the reasons... the REAL reasons? Were the Americans involved? In this tale of intrigue, the Russians plan an air strike on North America. Canadian and American Intelligence get wind of it through secret channels. The Canadians pretend to terminate the Arrow and then - with the help of the Americans - deploy the machine for what it was designed for. It's mission: catch the Russians with evidence of its strike force. While the public mourns the death of the supersonic fighter, the Arrow blasts its way across the Pacific on a vital, long-range, photo-recon mission to save the Free World and avert World War III. Behind the controls is a hand-picked Royal Canadian Air Force pilot. Target - Siberia.

For now Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispending Herald's justice throughout the land.

Download or read book The Avro Arrow PDF or another Format written by Lawrence Miller and published by James Lorimer & Company. This book was released on 2014-10-10 with total page 114 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When it first flew in 1957, the Avro Arrow was the worlds best supersonic combat aircraft. It was the proudest achievement of the engineers and designers who came out of Canadas world-leading aircraft industry. They had delivered other notable aircraft, including the worlds first passenger jet, but the Arrow put them ahead of everyone else in the field. The Arrow was designed to protect Canada against the military threat posed by the Soviet Union and its long-bombers loaded with nuclear weapons. It did everything it was supposed to do -- and more. Yet, after only six airplanes were built, the Arrow was killed. It was cancelled by a Conservative government overnight -- thousands lost their jobs. Its builder, Avro Aircraft, was ruined, and with it went an important high-tech industry. Astonishingly, the government ordered the finished airplanes cut up and destroyed. Nothing was to remain -- and nothing did. Using hundreds of photos, most in colour, along with original documents, this book tells this amazing story -- a key development in Canadas Cold War history. It provides the information that will let readers decide for themselves what best explains a decision which even today is hard to understand. And it shows Canadas capacity in engineering and science when challenged to produce the best in the world.
Download or read book The Last Flight of Poxl West PDF or another Format written by Daniel Torday and published by St. Martin's Press. This book was released on 2015-03-17 with total page 302 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Poxl West fled the Nazis' onslaught in Czechoslovakia. He escaped their clutches again in Holland. He pulled Londoners from the Blitz's rubble. He wooed intoxicating, unconventional beauties. He rained fire on Germany from his RAF bomber. Poxl West is the epitome of manhood and something of an idol to his teenage nephew, Eli Goldstein, who reveres him as a brave, singular, Jewish war hero. Poxl fills Eli's head with electric accounts of his derring-do, adventures and romances, as he collects the best episodes from his storied life into a memoir. He publishes that memoir, Skylock, to great acclaim, and its success takes him on the road, and out of Eli's life. With his uncle gone, Eli throws himself into reading his opus and becomes fixated on all things Poxl. But as he delves deeper into Poxl's history, Eli begins to see that the life of the fearless superman he's adored has been much darker than he let on, and filled with unimaginable loss from which he may have not recovered. As the truth about Poxl emerges, it forces Eli to face irreconcilable facts about the war he's romanticized and the vision of the man he's held so dear. Daniel Torday's debut novel, The Last Flight of Poxl West, beautifully weaves together the two unforgettable voices of Eli Goldstein and Poxl West, exploring what it really means to be a hero, and to be a family, in the long shadow of war.

This book was released on 2019-06-27 with total page 348 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Few women in Simas would take up hard labor, and very few would wield a weapon. So when Evanna settled in the outpost, Drone, standing up to the warlord Salem’s men with a weapon and earning her living as a blacksmith, she drew the attention of many from near and far. Among those who heard her renown were the crown prince of Simas and his high knight who were traveling the area on another assignment. Their unexpected visit to Drone brought about changes in fortune for this forlorn outpost, and Evanna took on a commission upon their invitation in the royal palace for the king’s birthday. In the palace, she forged friendships with the jovial Sir Torias, the playful but mysterious Sir Matthias, and the noble Sir Endor and learned the story of her past. In the city, she met an old beggar who had the blood of the Nephilim in him, sitting at the palace gates. But the wheels of the age were turning fast, and things were not always as they appeared. A seemingly diplomatic visit from a princess of the neighboring kingdom of Adar turned into an encounter with the murderer of Evanna’s mother many years ago. The thwarting of the Adarian coup was only the beginning of revelations of the terrible plans of an ancient enemy who most thought was dead. As Simas and its allies became embroiled in the war in their region, Evanna returned to the remnant of her people to raise them to battle and revive the old alliances. Leading five Simasian representatives through the forest into the mountains where her people were hiding, the secret that Evanna had been keeping was finally revealed. And with this alliance, she journeyed toward a battle toward the twisted plot of deception and bloodshed that would unravel in the very city where she was the rightful queen.

From the work of pioneers like Wernher von Braun, Yuri Gagarin, and Neil Armstrong to the triumphs and tragedies that followed, it reveals the people, science, and technology that have propelled us into the Space Age.

The pilot's son learns of the discovery and teams up with his father's former commanding officer.

While he is sympathetic, the former Luftwaffe pilot refuses to cooperate and the investigation reaches a dead end. Years later, the Condor Legion pilot dies in a crash at Tenerife and a bizarre Nazi plot is uncovered.

Download or read book Vlad: The Last Confession PDF or another Format written by Chris Humphreys and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2009-03-06 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A superb gothic novel about the real Dracula, Vlad the Impaler - one of history's greatest psychopaths or a hero of the West? Perhaps both... 'A chilling masterpiece that weaves fact and fable. Bedtime reading? Only if you don't need much sleep...' BEST DRACULA. A name of horror, depravity and the darkest sensuality. Yet the real Dracula was just as alluring, just as terrifying, his story not of a monster but of a man - and a contradiction. For the one they called 'The Devil's Son' was both tyrant and lawgiver, crusader and mass slaughterer, torturer and hero, lover and murderer. His tale is told by those who knew him best. The only woman he ever loved, who he must sacrifice. His closest comrade and traitor. And his priest, betraying the secrets of the confessional to reveal the mind of the man history would forever remember as Tepes - 'The Impaler'. But Vlad's actions defy such labels. His extraordinary life burns with passion, taking him from his years as hostage to the Turk, through torture, battle, triumph and betrayal, ultimately to a last crusade - there perhaps, beneath the twin banners of the Dragon and the Cross, to find redemption for his innumerable sins.

Book excerpt: The exploration of space was seen as the greatest adventure of the Twentieth Century, while in the Twenty First Century space-based services have become an integral part of our daily lives.

Today, the country is one of the largest users of space-based services. This revised and updated edition of Space Australia tells the story of Australia's involvement with space activities, from the earliest rocketeers to the latest satellite projects. It describes the vision, high hopes and achievements of professional space scientists and engineers, in both the civil and defence spheres, as well as the inspired amateurs and the new-breed of young space entrepreneurs who want to contribute to Australia's space future.
