He was born in obscurity, yet a star boldly proclaimed the actual event of His birth. His coming had been prophesied for 4,000 years, but when He did arrive, only a few recognized who He truly was. His birth brought the announcement of "peace on earth" between God and man, but His ministry brought a sword to the kingdom of darkness. As a child, He was hidden from those who would destroy Him, so that as a man He could allow His destruction to be for the salvation of all mankind who will receive Him. Jesus Christ lived a little over 33 years, but it was His last three that made all the difference in the world. He healed the sick, raised the dead, restored the physically disabled and brought forth great abundance where there was very little. This is His story, From Glory to Glory: The Life, Ministry, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, as written by the New Testament Gospel authors Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (KJV). It is recomposed in this unique format for convenience and edification.

Death Before Glory! is a highly readable, thoroughly researched and comprehensive study of the British army's campaigns in the West Indies during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic period and of the extraordinary experiences of the soldiers who served there. Rich in sugar, cotton, coffee and slaves, the region was a key to British prosperity and it was perhaps even more important to her greatest enemy Ð France. Yet, until now, the history of this vital theatre of the Napoleonic Wars has been seriously neglected. Not only does Martin Howard describe, in graphic detail, the entirety of the British campaigns in the region between 1793 and 1815, he also focuses on the human experience of the men Ð the climate and living conditions, the rations and diet, military discipline and training, the treatment of the wounded and the impact of disease. Martin Howard's thoroughgoing and original work is the essential account of this fascinating but often overlooked aspect of the history of the British army and the Napoleonic Wars.

On July 18, 1863, the African American soldiers of the Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Infantry led a courageous but ill-fated charge on Fort Wagner, a key bastion guarding Charleston harbor. Confederate defenders killed, wounded, or made prisoners of half the regiment. Only hours later, the body of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, the regiment's white commander, was thrown into a mass grave with those of twenty of his men. The assault promoted the young colonel to the higher rank of martyr, ranking him alongside the legendary John Brown in the eyes of abolitionists. In this biography of Shaw, Russell Duncan presents a poignant portrait of an average young soldier, just past the cusp of manhood and still struggling against his mother's indomitable will, thrust unexpectedly into the national limelight. Using information gleaned from Shaw's letters home before and during the war, Duncan tells the story of the rebellious son of wealthy Boston abolitionists who never fully reconciled his own racial prejudices yet went on to head the North's vanguard black regiment and give his life to the cause of freedom. This thorough biography looks at Shaw from historical and psychological viewpoints and examines the complex family relationships that so strongly influenced him.
