The Lady in the Tower  The Fall of Anne Boleyn, Alison Weir
2 Alison Weir The Lady in the Tower The Fall of Anne Boleyn
Ballantine Books 2010 0345453212 / 9780345453211 Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. Nearly 500 yrs after her violent death, Anne Boleyn, second wife to Henry Vlll, remains one of the most fascinating and tragic heroines in history. Acclaimed historian and author, Alison Weir has drawn on myriad sources from the Tudor era to give us the first book that examines the gripping, dark, and chilling story of Anne's last days. The love affair of Anne and Henry Vlll scandalized Christendom and altered the religious landscape of England. Her ascent to Queen was astonishing but equally compelling was her shockingly swift downfall. Charged with high treason and imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1536, Anne met her terrible end while protesting her innocence. The mystery lies in her arrest and the events leading up to it. Was she the victim of a complex plot or simply standing in the way of Henry Vlll's third marriage and siring an heir? This is an engrossing book, detailed and provocative.

In 1899 he arrived in South Africa to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. Two weeks after his arrival the soldiers he was accompanying on a train were ambushed and Churchill was taken prisoner. He pulled off a daring escape traversed hundreds of miles through enemy territory with a wad of cash, four bits of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. As if his escape was not incredible enough, he enlisted and returned to South Africa and ultimately helped liberate the men he was previously imprisoned with. This book is an epic story of bravery, historical characters, including Kipling and Gandhi, and unbelievable bravery.

Dead Wake  The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, Erik Larson
5 Erik Larson Dead Wake The Last Crossing of the Lusitania
Crown Publishing 2015 0307408868 / 9780307408860 First Edition Hardcover New New 
This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. From the bestselling author Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, comes the story of the sinking of the Lusitania. The luxury liner The Lusitania was one of the greyhounds of the North Atlantic. It sailed out of New York bound for Liverpool carrying a record number of children and infants. Passengers were surprisingly at ease, given that World War l was entering its 10th month. Her captain had placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly structures of warfare that had kept civilian ships safe from attack for over a century. Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of the game. As a German U-Boat and the Lusitania made their way toward Liverpool, - hubris, chance fog, a guarded secret, and more - converged to produce one of the great disasters of history. The author tells this story thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era. The book brings to life a cast of evocative characters from famed Boston bookseller Charles Lauriat to female architect Theodate Pope to Pres. Wilson and more. Gripping important history that most of us think we know, but have no idea of the vast making and sinking of the great ship. Illustrated maps inside front and back cover.

Reagan and Thatcher  The Difficult Relationship, Richard Aldous
10 Richard Aldous Reagan and Thatcher The Difficult Relationship
Norton Publishing 2012 0393069001 / 9780393069006 Hardcover New New 
An iconic friendship, an uneasy alliance - a revisionist account of the couple that ended the Cold War. During the last chapter of the struggle against the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher formed the most compelling head-of-state pairing since Churchill and Roosevelt. Often characterized as a "political marriage", it would persist well after the conflict and has solidified in the public consciousness. This is a brilliant diplomatic biography in which the author argues that the idea of a "Churchillian" relationship between Reagan and Thatcher is more myth than fact. They cultivated an image of friendliness all the while clashing over issues including Poland, the Siberian gas pipeline, the Falklands War, the Strategic Defense Initiative missile defense and more.
