When the party's over and the baby finally falls asleep, when the dog is all barked out and the screens are dark, the Silence pads in on soft, furry feet. A warm, comforting presence, the Silence curls up in a sunbeam like a cuddly cat and helps you read, think, and be still. The Silence is friends with the Dark. Together, they soothe the jagged edges left when the Noise has rolled on and gently launch the boats of your dreams into the night. When the day becomes overwhelming or other feelings become too big, the Silence slips in. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heather Gould.

Jerry Mitchell, now the commodore of submarine Development Squadron Five, is dismayed when USS Toledo is reported missing in Arctic waters, close to Russian territory. The vessel is captained by his former shipmate and close friend Lenny Berg. Eager to investigate, Jerry convinces the navy to redirect one of his squadron’s boats to find out what happened. It turns out Toledo was sunk just outside of Russian territorial waters by a torpedo launched from a naval mine. Even more disturbing is the discovery that Russia is building a deadly weapon. Engineers have modified the STATUS-6, a strategic nuclear propelled, nuclear armed torpedo that is already operational, into a stealthy first strike weapon: Drakon. This new tool would allow the Russians to launch a completely covert nuclear decapitation strike on the USA. The new Russian president has plans for Europe and is more than willing to use nuclear blackmail - or an actual attack - to keep the Americans from interfering. To avoid a Russian war in Europe and a nuclear catastrophe at home, Mitchell must find a way to destroy the Drakon launcher before it’s too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall.

While the Great War raged across the trench-lined battlefields of Europe, a hidden conflict took place in the distant hinterlands of the turbulent Mexican Republic. German officials and secret-service operatives plotted to bring war to the United States through an array of schemes and strategies, from training a German-Mexican army for a cross-border invasion, to dispatching saboteurs to disrupt American industry, and planning for submarine bases on the western coast of Mexico. Bill Mills tells the true story of the most audacious of these operations: the German plot to launch clandestine sea raiders from the Mexican port of Mazatlán to disrupt Allied merchant shipping in the Pacific. The scheme led to a desperate struggle between German and American secret agents in Mexico. German consul Fritz Unger, the director of a powerful trading house, plotted to obtain a salvaged Mexican gunboat to supply U-boats operating off Mexico and to seize a hapless tramp schooner to help hunt Allied merchantmen. Unger's efforts were opposed by a colorful array of individuals, including a trusted member of the German secret service in Mexico who was also the top American spy, the US State Department's senior officer in Mazatlán, the hard-charging commander of a navy gunboat, and a draft-dodging American informant in the enemy camp. Full of drama and intrigue, Treacherous Passage is the first complete account of the daring German attempts to raid Allied shipping from Mexico in 1918. The book is published by University of Nebraska Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David A. Nickerson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/097928/bk_acx0_097928_sample.mp3.

As American and Filipino troops were in the process of being defeated in the Philippines, General Douglas MacArthur, his family, and his closest advisors were smuggled out of the Philippines on PT boats. From there they surged across the black ocean to Mindanao and were picked up by American B-17 bombers. They stealthily flew to northern Australia, a dangerous flight over Japanese-held territory. On March 18, 1942, MacArthur met the assembled press at Adelaide and told them, "I came through and I shall return". The words would go down in history, and MacArthur would eventually fulfill the vow. In the wake of the campaign, Japan occupied the country and went on to expand their territory in the Pacific while at the same time destroying the American presence in that region. But by the spring of 1943, American military planners had begun to create a plan to dislodge Japan from East and Southeast Asia. To do so, parts of the Philippines were considered main strategic points in the potential Allied attack in the Pacific. The end goal of the Allied plan was an invasion of the Japanese home islands, in which heavy aerial bombardment would precede a ground assault. In order for this to occur, Allied forces would have to occupy areas surrounding Japan, with China adding to Luzon (the largest island in the Philippines) and Formosa (a large island off the coast of China) to create a triangle from which they could launch their bombers. 1.

Red, Stan, and Sunny O’Brian, three baby boomer brothers in their 60s, are faced with a four-pronged invasion of the country and each must do what they can to defend the US, in his own way. Along with their sons, grandchildren and extended family, they do whatever it takes to stop this invasion by forces that would destroy it from within by using systems and infrastructure that were designed to make our lives easier. The three brothers and the cocky female pilot, Charlie, represent the five branches of the military and they each do what they have to, with the extended families of cowboys, bikers and fishermen to save the country. Red, the cowboy, rallies his riders to prevent the destruction of downtown Dallas, while his biker brother Stan, on his way to Sturgis, foils a plan to launch an air strike on the nation from the heart of the country, Nebraska. And Sunny, the retired Naval commander, spends his life as a fishermen, but is also responsible for organizing the new Naval Militia. With, boats, planes, and trucks, the plan is set for the “four horsemen” to cripple the nation and take over from within. But they forgot to take one very important element into consideration in their very flawed plan … the will and might of the American people to defend what is theirs against enemies, foreign, and domestic. “As Red and the other cowboys rode away, dust billowing behind them like it did behind Stan and his fellow bikers, there was a similarity of purpose and pride in a country that gave them freedom to ride the open highways or the open plains, or even for Sunny, the open waters. It was about freedom for all of them, and they knew it was this freedom they must now defend and preserve.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Skip Lipman.

This work introduces the important emerging space powers of the world. Brian Harvey describes the origins of the Japanese space program, from rocket designs based on WW II German U-boats to tiny solid fuel 'pencil' rockets, which led to the launch of the first Japanese satellite in 1970. The next two chapters relate how Japan expanded its space program, developing small satellites into astronomical observatories and sending missions to the Moon, Mars, comet Halley, and asteroids. Chapter 4 describes how India's Vikram Sarabhai developed a sounding rocket program in the 1960s. The following chapter describes the expansion of the Indian space program. Chapter 6 relates how the Indian space program is looking ahead to the success of the moon probe Chandrayan, due to launch in 2008, and its first manned launching in 2014. Chapters 7, 8, and 9 demonstrate how, in Iran, communications and remote sensing drive space technology. Chapter 10 outlines Brazil's road to space, begun in the mid-1960's with the launch of the Sonda sounding rockets. The following two chapters describe Brazil's satellites and space launch systems and plans for the future. Chapters 13 and 14 study Israel's space industry. The next chapters look at the burgeoning space programs of North and South Korea. The book ends by contrasting and comparing all the space programs and speculating how they may evolve in the future. An appendix lists all launches and launch attempts to date of the emerging space powers.
