'Overwatch crackles with authenticity' Matthew Reilly When Logan West impulsively answers a dead man's ringing phone, he triggers a global race against the clock to track down an unknown organisation searching for an Iraqi artifact that is central to a planned attack in the Middle East—one that will draw the United States into a major conflict with Iran. Logan, a former Marine officer, is quickly contracted as a 'consultant' to assist the FBI as part of a special task force bent on stopping the shadowy operatives, whatever the cost. The battles are nonstop, from the plains of the Midwest, to mansions in northern Mexico, to the war-torn Al-Anbar province, pitting an international team against trained mercenaries employed by the world's largest private security contractor ... whose owner has a personal vendetta against the US government. Meanwhile, Logan is battling his own demons, especially the trauma of the ambush that his Force Recon unit suffered at an insurgent torture compound in Fallujah in 2004, which threatens to destroy everything he holds dear. With high-stakes and fully-realized characters, Overwatch is a thriller unlike any you've read before: expertly plotted, up-to-the-minute, and impossible to put down. Praise for Matthew Betley 'A former Marine himself, Betley proves himself an able heir to the throne held by the likes of Brad Thor and the late, great Vince Flynn ... Not to be missed' The Providence Journal

IS-2 Heavy Tank 1944–73
Author: Steven J. Zaloga
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
The Iosef Stalin tanks were the ultimate heavy tanks developed by the Soviet Union and were popularly called 'Victory tanks' due to their close association with the defeat of Germany in 1945. Yet in spite of their reputation, the Stalin tanks emerged from a troubled design, had a brief moment of glory in 1944 and 1945, and disappeared in ignominy after 1960. This title covers the events contributing to the Soviet Union's need to design the new series, with particular reference to the unsuccessful KV series and the advent of a new generation of heavy German tanks including the Tiger. It also covers their development, operational history and myriad variants.
A rare look into the German military experience of the First World War written and translated into English by soldiersInfanterie-Regiment 66 fought in most of the great battles on the western front: Mons, Le Cateau, the Marne, Arras, the Somme, the French offensive on the Chemin des Dames, the Kaiserschlacht in March 1918, the German offensive on the Chemin des Dames, the Second Marne, and the Siegfried Line. It continually demonstrated the highest levels of tactical skill.This is an exceptional text written by a soldier and academic, Dr. Otto Korfes, who served as an officer in the regiment and then became an historian in the Reichsarchiv, the repository of the German Army's Great War documents. Korfes consulted the regimental war diaries and after action reports, as well as making extensive use of first-hand accounts. The book includes 23 tactical sketches and dozens of pencil drawings by the great German war artist, Döbrich-Streglitz.

WHAT THE HECK IS AN INTERNET MEME? Meme (pronounced meem): An idea, belief or element of social behavior spread that is transmitted from one person or group of people to another. This word was coined in the '70s by Richard Dawkins, the atheist godman worshipped by neckbeards everywhere. Simply put, Internet memes are memes that spread on the Internet through social networking sites, blogs, email, news sources, and so on. In the real world they're called "ideas," but pseudo-intellectuals prefer "memes." WHERE DO INTERNET MEMES COME FROM? Amongst all the stupid crap on the Internet are hilarious gems of wit and wisdom. Most of the best memes start as images shared on the Web and, by some great misfortune, they find their way into the lecherous hands of drunken basement trolls who mutate these images into the hilarious, the lame, and sometimes the downright bizarre. WHAT IS THIS BOOK? This book will take you on bizarre journey through the bilges of the Internet and introduce you to 23 of its funniest and most popular memes, complete with a sh*tload of images that might just make you wet your panties. "On this journey you will share lulz with unsavory characters like..." "Foul Bachelor Frog" "Socially Awkward Penguin" "Paranoid Parrot" "Courage Wolf" "Advice God" "Joseph Ducreux" "Hipster Kitty" "Inglip" "Successful Black Man" "Forever Alone" "Bill O'Reilly" "And more..."
