“Capturing the violence and romance of medieval life, Iggulden makes real those grand characters who live in the collective memory. A page-turner sure to have readers eager for the next in the series.” —Kirkus The first book in #1 New York Times–bestselling author Conn Iggulden’s brilliant new historical series about two families who plunged England into a devastating, decades-long civil war. In 1437, the Lancaster king Henry VI ascends the throne of England after years of semi-peaceful regency. Named “The Lamb,” Henry is famed more for his gentle and pious nature than his father’s famous battlefield exploits; already, his dependence on his closest men has stirred whispers of weakness at court. A secret truce negotiated with France to trade British territories for a royal bride—Margaret of Anjou—sparks revolts across English territory. The rival royal line, the House of York, sees the chaos brought on by Henry’s weakness and with it not only opportunity in the monarch, but also their patriotic duty in ousting an ineffectual king. As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who or what can save the kingdom before it is too late?

The history, camouflage and markings of the Me 262 is described with the assistance of 40 WWII period photos, scale drawings, and excerpts from an original Me 262 engineering handbook. The Jumo 004 turbojet engine is also placed in its historical context as both a crucial asset and disappointing liability for the Stormbird. A full color 32 page photo essay of "Black X," Werknummer 500200 is outlined together with a history of its pilot and its service with II./KG 51. "Black X" is the last remaining complete Me 262 bomber, now housed in Australia. This fascinating Stormbird was repainted in the 1950s but its original wartime paint work was partially exposed by research in the early 1980s. Important elements of "Black X," including the cannon bay and fuselage interior are in extraordinarily good condition. EF#5 includes many color photographs to highlight construction and camouflage aspects of this significant aircraft. The late-war camouflage on "Black X" is comprehensively discussed and cross referenced against reliable sources of RLM colors and Federal Standard samples. Illustrated by Tom Tullis, all new color profiles plus a summary of the special markings applied to the Stormbird are included along with tactical and unit markings presented in full color

Hermann Buchner was one of the rare bomber pilots who also became a fighter pilot. The author, a Luftwaffe NCO pilot and Knight's Cross holder, gives a riveting account of his training with the pre-war Austrian air force, instructing with the Luftwaffe, and the terrifying ground-attack operations on the Eastern Front trying to stop the Russian mincing machine. Despite being shot down twice, Buchner himself targeted Il2s, Yak 9s, and a Boston bomber who fell victim to his eagle eye. Later tasked with opposing the Allied daylight bombing raids into deepest Germany, Buchner labored to protect his homeland. Serving alongside many well-known aces and sometimes taking off from his home airfield while under Soviet shellfire, he paints a picture of a man surviving against incredible odds, who became one of the elite with JG7 and learned that the important thing with the Me262 was to land near a convenient foxhole. Supplemented by more than 140 photographs, mostly from the author's personal collection, along with color profiles of his aircraft and opponents, Stormbird presents a remarkable insight into the life of a Luftwaffe pilot in WWII.

The Me 262 was the first of its kind, the first jet-powered aircraft. Although conceived before the war, with the initial plans being drawn in April 1939, the Stormbird was beset with technological (particularly the revolutionary engines) and political difficulties, resulting in it not entering combat until August 1944, with claims of nineteen downed Allied aircraft. The performance of the Me 262 so far exceeded that of Allied aircraft that on 1 Sepember 1944, USAAF General Carl Spaatz remarked that if greater numbers of German jets appeared, they could inflict losses heavy enough to force cancellation of the Allied daylight bombing offensive. The story of how the Stormbird came to be is fascinating history, and it comes to life in the hands of noted historian Colin Heaton. Told largely in the words of the German aces who flew it, The Me 262 Stormbird provides the complete history of this remarkable airplane from the drawing boards to combat in the skies over the Third Reich. Features two forewords, one by Jorg Czypionka, Me 262 night fighter pilot, and another by historian and author Barrett Tillman.

SERENGETI: Those vast African grasslands where God poured out herds of wildlife to trek across the savannahs after the thunderous rains. He turned the full brilliance of the sun on the land for warmth. He then put people there and gave them cattle for their wealth and music for their joy. Hear the call of the birds, and smile as the children play Somewhere, a lion roars as the sun sinks below the horizon. Warm winds carry the smell of rain and the heady odor of human toil as a stew cooks over a charcoal fire. Human tragedy unfolds in slavery and disease. Strangers from other lands come, some to love and care, some to destroy, most without regard to the fragile Serengeti. Come with me and meet the many--both native and transplant--who live, love, and die in this magnificently brutal land.

The master of historical fiction, Conn Iggulden, retells the gripping story of the English civil war in his new Wars of the Roses series King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead. In 1437 the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the throne but his poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what, can save the kingdom before it is too late? The Wars of the Roses series will be a benchmark for historical fiction, showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest. Praise for the author: 'This is energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience' INDEPENDENT

He took a hundred golden ducats and tried to buy her soul. But Rox Antasha, wild-fighter, minstrel and thief, feels she is worth a bit more than that. She was not about to betray her land and her heritage for a meal and the honeyed words of the evil Witch, Feriam. Nevertheless what is Feriam Mesmer's fascination with the Ring in Earl Darret's secret vault? Certainly Rox didn't remember the ring from the last time that she had been along to browse through the Earl's most treasured possessions. Maybe she should borrow the ring and take it back to the Guild of Assassins; Rox is quite certain she'll get a better price there. But is it all just about money and trust? There seems to be a lot more going on in Four Valleys. The smoke and dust of the derelict land has come through to pollute the land around the tower; there is ice and snow spreading from the desolate Anastasia manor. A plague of goblins, ogres and trolls has appeared, spreading strife and unrest in the valley. Rox can see that some deeper plot surrounds the ancient magical ring of the Anastasia; and the Witch is definitely behind it all. Who is Rox to trust? Where must she turn in time of need when it becomes clear that everybody seems to be following their own agenda, even Jethra the Ranger is not all that he seems to be. Why has he been detailed to follow Rox, when Earl Darret should be asking questions about the magic ring; and certain other things that have gone missing from his secret vault? Rox is in two minds about accepting Jethra's assistance, especially when he shows how inexperienced he really is. But any help is better than nothing at all; and Rox definitely should not face the Desolation Dragon by herself; not when the Witch is lurking behind the scenes. Nevertheless Rox is determined to earn her one hundred golden Ducats; even if she has to cut it from the Witch's hide.
