Movies Based on True Stories: What Really Happened? Movies versus History

by Alan Royle

A look at over 400 of the best historical movies (and some of the worst) purporting to be â??factual’ or â??based on actual events’; and how Hollywood has distorted, altered, manipulated, exaggerated, even falsified history under the all-encompassing premiseâ?¦based on a true storyâ?¦



The Waffen SS at War – Hitler’s Elite Soldiers

by Heinrich Fischer

The Waffen-SS (armed SS) are considered to be not only an elite group of soldiers, but also Hitler’s/Nazi Germany’s most determined and fanatical troops. Waffen-SS soldiers were predominantly volunteers and were recruited from Germany and other areas from across Nazi occupied Europe, and were well trained and devoted to the cause. This army had access to the latest and greatest military technology, and were known to dominate the battlefields across Europe, including the Russian Front and the Deutschland itself.



One Lives, One Dies

by David Brierley

One lives or one dies: that’s the law of any revolution…

But sometimes when one dies, things aren’t as final as they seem.

Especially in Bolivia.

Ernesto has suffered twenty years of torture.

But when he is released, he puts into action his plan for a macabre revenge on his persecutors and betrayers.

When the world’s press finds out what really happened to Che Guevara in 1967, Ernesto believes he will be a front page sensation.

Phil Tanner, a secret warrior from Britain’s beleaguered Intelligence Service, picks up the trail.

But he is only one of a clutch of agents, all racing to find out the truth.

One sad, shuffling old man, once the hero of the radical generation, is hunted down by the espionage machines of both sides of the political divideâ?¦

`Plenty of well contrived excitements punctuated by some nicely judged ironies. Superior model of its kind’ – THE GUARDIAN

‘Multi-national, multi-lingual, plotted and sub-plotted. The story is fast and furious’ – DAILY TELEGRAPH

David Brierley was born in 1936. He lives with his wife and daughter in Hertfordshire, apart from the time spent abroad each year researching locations for his books. He is also the author of â??Shooting Star’ and â??Czech Mate’.

Endeavour Press is the UK’s leading independent publisher of digital books.
