All parents keep secrets from their children. My father, it seemed, kept more than most . . . Whilst mourning the death of his father, journalist Stewart Dubin decides to research the life of a man he had always respected, always admired, but possibly never quite knew . . . As a young, idealistic lawyer during the last terrible months of the Second World War, David Dubin was sent to the European Front – ostensibly to bring charges against a brave American hero, Robert Martin, who had suddenly, inexplicably, gone local and stopped following orders. Martin has become a liability and the authorities want him neutralized. But as Dubin learns more about Martin and the demons possessing him, he finds himself falling in love with Martin's enigmatic ex-mistress – a dangerous woman of incredible courage. And someone who will do anything to protect her comrade-in-arms . . . Stewart discovers a journal written by his father – and learns of his incredible courage in the face of battle, reads first-hand of the shattering moral consequences for those caught in the chaos of war and, finally, the secret he had died protecting . . .

This brief book tell about the lives of two participants in World War II, Abraham and Isidore Hertzberg and their lives after they returned from this conflagration. There fore it is both a bona fide account of combat plus a family history. There are some unbelievable incidents in this account. If it were not for the navigational knowledge of Abraham Hertzberg, he might not have even made it to his base in England. Isidore Hertzberg might have fought in the Battle of the Bulge, if the Germans had been stronger. The lives of these brothers after the war is unremarkable, except that Abraham became a very successful Civil engineer and Architect, and Isadore, while working as a carpenter sired a fine family who have far exceeded his own academic achievements. This book surveys the lives of both ordinary and extraordinary people and is a reflection of life in the United States in the second half of the 20th century.

Ordinary Heroes recreates the sights, sounds and textures of a world gone by – a world of freedom, innocence and mystery – where boys leave home at 6:00 in the morning and return home for dinner – a world of sleep outs and midnight escapades. 14 year old Randy's life begins as a near-death experience. But – cerebral palsy aside – by 1959, he loves Sandra Dee, Sandy Koufax, the Dodgers, Wolfman Jack – and a girl named Daisy Clover – in that order. Things begin to pop when the boys poke around the crumbling Jefferson place and discover perplexing evidence – pointing to something very different than the official version of their neighborhood hero's death – confusing clues, threatening notes, phone calls – and violence. If 19 year old Scotty Jefferson's death is an "open and shut, police slam dunk" – why all the fuss? Ordinary Heroes salutes the goodness of boys everywhere!

This is the book about a group of men who soldiered for their country from September 1939 until liberated in May and June 1945. The historical issues opened by these diaries were substantial: Could they really have been the first unit to go to France in 1939 and did some not leave until after the fall of france? Could this small unit have played a significant role in the battle of El Alamein even though they were struggling to survive as POWs by the time the battle took place? Were they present at the birth of the legend that has become the Special Air Service? The answer to all these questions I believe is 'Yes'. Did British soldiers take over and run a death camp when the war ended as they waited for liberation by US 101st Airborn Division.? The photos to prove it. The three subjects recorded their stories and representatives of all the men from Doncaster and surrounding district who formed 106 Army Troops Company Royal Engineers.

From Bury to the Academy, Danny Boyle's has been a career less ordinary, and it's charted here in a loving, if occasionally starchy film-by-film detail. Taking in recurrent Boyle motifs (religion, windfalls, subcultures) and techniques, it's a satisfying guide for fans and film students. With chapters dedicated to each of the ten films Danny Boyle has directed, this book explores the themes, techniques and styles of the director's work. From Shallow Grave to Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire - and including the hit movies Trainspotting, The Beach and 28 Days Later. Danny Boyle's influence is examined and assessed.

Built on a unique four-year experiment working alongside real leaders in real businesses, Living Leadership explodes the myth of the charismatic, transformational leader, to show that real progress comes from the dramatically ordinary stuff of leadership. From building relationships - not starting revolutions, by working with the grain of your organisation - not against it, and in knowing your limitations as much as pushing every boundary.
