Historians of the First World War have often dismissed the important role of poison gas in the battles of the Western Front. Tim Cook shows that the serious threat of gas did not disappear with the introduction of gas masks. By 1918, gas shells were used by all armies to deluge the battlefield, and those not instructed with a sound anti-gas doctrine left themselves exposed to this new chemical plague.This book provides a challenging re-examination of the function of gas warfare in the First World War, including its important role in delivering victory in the campaign of 1918 and its curious postwar legacy.

"Jane grew up in a home devoid of affection, and deprived of the basic necessities of life. She was regularly left at home alone, in an old farm house miles from town, while her parents went out drinking. She came to believe the brawling, swearing, name calling, and beatings were the normal way of life. She had never gone shopping, or even to town at all, until the school bus came to pick her up for her first day of school. This was a frightening experience for the child, but she learned reading, writing, and artihmetic, as well as how to play with other children. Life at home was so dreadful that she begged to stay at school or on the bus where she was treated with kindness. It became intolerable when her father began to show interest in her..."- back cover.

In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency's widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden's disclosures. Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA's unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself. Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation's political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens—and considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.

David and Sophie Gotzel (later Anglicized to 'Gilbert') left Germany in 1935 to escape anti-Semitism and the Nazis. They moved to Warsaw, where they were married. Once there, they planned to move to a safer country, one further away from the Nazi threat; but when their daughter, Micki, was born in 1937, financial constraints forced them to delay their plans. Two years later, the War began and David vowed to bring his loved ones through the danger. With the help of people befriended along the way, David guided his wife and two-year-old daughter through the siege of Warsaw; but he was eventually arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned, and Sophie and Micki were confined to the Warsaw ghetto. The family later went into hiding, separately, in the Aryan section of the city and David tried to apply for papers for emigration. This attempt was thwarted, and the family survived two years in Bergen-Belsen. Tim Shortridge and Michael D. Frounfelter's narrative of David (Gotzel) Gilbert's years in the Warsaw ghetto and Bergen-Belsen is a triumph. Here we have not just the account of one who lived through the worst episode in human history, but also the story of the indomitable spirit of David Gotzel; who with inexhaustible resourcefulness and a spirit of hope that never flagged, even in the most terrible circumstances, saved his own family and as many others as he could.

At the heart of Born to Run lies a mysterious tribe of Mexican Indians, the Tarahumara, who live quietly in canyons and are reputed to be the best distance runners in the world; in 1993, one of them, aged 57, came first in a prestigious 100-mile race wearing a toga and sandals. A small group of the world's top ultra-runners (and the awe-inspiring author) make the treacherous journey into the canyons to try to learn the tribe's secrets and then take them on over a course 50 miles long. With incredible energy and smart observation, McDougall tells this story while asking what the secrets are to being an incredible runner. Travelling to labs at Harvard, Nike, and elsewhere, he comes across an incredible cast of characters, including the woman who recently broke the world record for 100 miles and for her encore ran a 2:50 marathon in a bikini, pausing to down a beer at the 20 mile mark.
