More than half a century after his death, Lt Col. Robert Blair Mayne is still regarded as one of the greatest soldiers in the history of military special operations. He was the most decorated British soldier of the Second World War, receiving four DSOs, the Croix de Guerre and the Légion d'honneur, and he pioneered tactics used today by the SAS and other special operations units worldwide. Rogue Warrior of the SAS tells the remarkable life story of 'Colonel Paddy', whose exceptional physical strength and uniquely swift reflexes made him a fearsome opponent. But his unorthodox rules of war and his resentment of authority would deny him the ultimate accolade of the Victoria Cross. Drawing on personal letters and family papers, declassified SAS files and records, together with the Official SAS Diary compiled in wartime and eyewitness accounts from many who served with him, the picture emerges of a soldier who, although a flawed hero, was unquestionably one of the most distinctive combatants of the campaigns in the Western Desert and Europe.

SAS Heroes contains former SAS member Pete Scholey's memories of 20 soldiers who were genuine heroes, although many were never recognised as such during their lives or even in death. It is a book of stories about soldiers who fought for their country with no desire to be famous, feted or rewarded, many of whom died in action. A few received medals, and all earned the respect and admiration of their fellow soldiers, their names and faces etched into the true history of the SAS. Some of the stories of Pete's heroes have never been told before and certainly none of the tales of combat and life in the regiment have been told in such a touching, real and compelling manner.

The Special Air Service was the brainchild of Scots Guards' officer Lieutenant David Stirling, serving with No 8 Commando. He advocated a specially organised, specially equipped and specially trained unit dedicated to the 'unrelenting pursuit of excellence' that could act covertly and operate behind enemy lines to gain intelligence, destroy enemy aircraft and attack their supply and reinforcement routes. The 1st SAS Regiment was officially designated after successful raids against enemy airfields in the Middle East in 1941-1942. In May 1943 a 2nd SAS Regiment was raised in Algeria and would also serve in Sicily and Italy. SAS troopers were at the forefront of the action on D-Day, serving behind the enemy lines, assisting the French Resistance in diversionary attacks and in support of Allied armies. The SAS served with great distinction through 42 significant actions in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany until the end of the war in Europe. This new addition to the bestselling Conway pocket-book series is compiled from wartime and post-war memorandums, manuals and documents. They include unit after-action reports and lecture notes from the centres used to train special services soldiers, gathered from the Liddell Hart Military Archive, National Archives, wartime periodicals and post-war memoirs. The book covers: - training methods - weapons handling - fieldcraft - sabotage training - operations in North Africa and the Middle East (1941?1942), Sicily and Italy (1943) and France (1944?1945)

In The Trigger Men, bestselling author Martin Dillon delves into the dark and sinister world of Irish terrorism and counter-terrorism. Over three decades he has interviewed and investigated some of the most professional, dangerous and ruthless killers in Ireland. Now Dillon explores their personalities, motivations and bizarre crimes.Many of Ireland's assassins learned their trade in fields and on hillsides in remote parts of Ireland, while others were trained in the Middle East or with Basque separatist terrorists in Spain. Some were one-target-one-shot killers, like the sniper who terrorised the inhabitants of Washington State in the autumn of 2002, while others were bombers skilled in designing the most sophisticated explosive devices and booby traps. Another more powerful group of 'trigger men' were the influential figures in the shadows, who were experts in motivating the killers under their control. All of these men, whether they squeezed the trigger on a high-powered rifle, set the timer on a bomb or used their authority to send others out to commit horrific and unspeakable acts of cruelty, are featured in this book. The Trigger Men takes the reader inside the labyrinthine world of terrorist cells and highly classified counter-terrorism units of British Military Intelligence. The individual stories are described in gripping, unflinching detail and show how the terrorists carried out their ghastly work. Dillon also explores the ideology of the cult of the gunmen and the greed and hatred that motivated assassins in their killing sprees. There are penetrating insights into the mindset of the most infamous assassins: their social and historical conditioning, their callousness......

Der junge Däne Morten Storm ist Kleinkrimineller, Mitglied einer Motorrad-Gang und rutscht immer weiter in die Illegalität ab, bis er schließlich neuen Halt in den Schriften des Propheten Mohammed findet. Nach einem Gefängnisaufenthalt konvertiert er zum Islam und identifiziert sich zunehmend mit den radikalen Forderungen und Zielen extremistischer Islamisten. Ein längerer Aufenthalt im Jemen bringt ihn schließlich mit dem Hassprediger Anwar al-Awlaki zusammen. Doch noch während Storm mit diesem in direktem Kontakt steht, zweifelt er zunehmend an seinen Überzeugungen und arbeitet bald gleichzeitig für nicht weniger als drei westliche Geheimorganisationen. Von nun an führt Storm ein fast schizophrenes Leben: Er konzipiert und plant Anschläge mit führenden Köpfen der al-Qaida und lässt sich kurz darauf in luxuriöse Unterkünfte einfliegen, um seine Informationen mit westlichen Agenten zu teilen und die Nächte durchzufeiern. Seine Mission bleibt dabei jedoch ernst: einen der meistgesuchten Verbrecher Amerikas aufzuspüren und zu vernichten. Agent Storm ist ein leidenschaftliches und faszinierendes Buch voller Geschichten über codierte Nachrichten, verdeckte Treffen und die zweifelhaften Motive eines Doppelagenten – und gibt einen einzigartigen Einblick in das mächtigste und am meisten gefürchtete Terror-Netzwerk der Welt.

Jehan Sadat hat das politische Erbe ihres Mannes angetreten: Mutig und entschlossen tritt die ehemalige First Lady Ägyptens seit vielen Jahren für Frieden und Versöhnung im Nahen Osten ein. Dieses sehr persönliche Dokument macht deutlich, warum Jehan Sadat für Frauen im Westen wie im Osten gleichermaßen Vorbild ist. In den Herzen der meisten Ägypter ist sie noch immer die wahre First Lady des Landes: Anwar Sadats Witwe Jehan. "Er war meine Kraft, ich sein Licht", schrieb sie über ihren Mann, der 1981 bei einer Militärparade von Fundamentalisten erschossen wurde. "In meinen Augen war Sadat ein Held", äußerte Helmut Schmidt, sichtlich bewegt, einmal in einer Fernsehsendung. Statt nach dem Tod ihres Mannes zu resignieren, setzte Jehan Sadat sein Werk beherzt fort. Zwischen Amerika und Kairo hin- und herpendelnd, vermittelt sie zwischen West und Ost, engagiert sich für die Rechte muslimischer Frauen. Dem Frieden in Nahost aber gilt ihr größtes Engagement. Dieses Buch ist das bemerkenswerte Zeugnis einer außergewöhnlichen Frau.

Peter Abelard's autobiography, the Historia calamitatum, is one of the best-known medieval texts, especially because of the story of his love for Heloise which it recounts. In recent decades, there was so much controversy about the authenticity of the documents concerning Abelard and Heloise that the critical interpretation of the texts was relegated to the sidelines. The present volume provides a way out of this impasse. In it, the famous text is subjected to a series of exemplary analyses from the perspectives of seven different 20th century literary theories (aesthetics of reception, Foucault, Gender Studies, Rhetorical Stylistic Analysis, Psychology of Literature, Cultural Studies, Deconstruction). The analyses are preceded by the Latin text of the Historia calamitatum with a modern German translation. This is thus the first time that the Historia calamitatum has been presented in a bilingual edition.

"On the night of 9-10 July 1943, the Allies made their first move to regain control of Western Europe. Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily, was in fact a larger operation than the Normandy landings the following year. For the next thirty-eight days, half a million Allied servicemen fought the Germans and Italians for control of this rocky island ... Notwithstanding the campaign's failure to achieve its potential, vital lessons were learnt for the Normandy invasion. Many of the leading generals in Northwest Europe, amongst them Eisenhower, Montgomery, Bradley and Patton, brought with them the experience of Sicily"--Dust jacket.
