The little-known drama of the last-minute decision to launch the invasion of Normandy—excerpted from the internationally bestselling D-Day: The Battle for Normandy In D-Day: The Decision to Launch, excerpted from Antony Beevor´s bestselling book D-Day: The Battle for Normandy, readers get the little-known story of how the difficult decision was made to launch the Allied invasion of France on June 6, 1944. The stakes could not have been higher: if Operation Overlord were to fail, it would be a crushing blow to the Allies, a huge loss of both men and equipment. The decision of when to launch rested with supreme commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower, but it hinged on one factor: the weather. If there was too much cloud cover, the Allied bombers wouldn´t be able to provide air support, and if the seas were too rough, the landing craft would be swamped. It fell to one man to predict the weather: Dr. James Stagg, the head of the meteorological team at Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. This riveting selection from D-Day, praised by Time as ´´a vibrant work of history that honors the sacrifice of tens of thousands of men and women;” tells the fascinating inside story of one of the most important decisions of World War II.

Set amid the civil rights movement, the never-before-told true story of NASA´s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America´s space program. Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as ´Human Computers´, calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts, these ´coloured computers´ used pencil and paper to write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Moving from World War II through NASA´s golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women´s rights movement, ´Hidden Figures´ interweaves a rich history of mankind´s greatest adventure with the intimate stories of five courageous women whose work forever changed the world
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together-a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences. Although Scott Carey doesn´t look any different, he´s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn´t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis. In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King´s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade-but escalating-battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott´s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face-including his own-he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott´s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others. From Stephen King, our ´´most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work´´ (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as ´´It´s a Wonderful Life.´´
