Swarm Troopers: How small drones will conquer the word

by David Hambling

Small unmanned aircraft are already transforming warfare, with hand-launched scouts like the Raven and lethal tactical drones like Switchblade already in use by US forces.

A bigger revolution is on the way, as swarming software allows a single operator to control large numbers of drones, and smartphone technology means they can be built for $1,000 each — by anybody, not just governments.

This book looks at the history of drone warfare, the rise of big drones like the Predator and how they are being eclipsed by smaller unmanned aircraft. And how the future is being shaped by smartphone technology, swarm software, miniaturised munitions and energy-harvesting that allows small drones to fly forever.

It also looks at why current air defence cannot stop the swarms, and what drone swarms will mean for the balance of power and future wars.

The Swarm Troopers are coming. Will we be ready for them?

The Barren Fig Tree

by John Bunyan

John Bunyan (1628-1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing Pilgrim’s Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on August 30, and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (USA) on August 29.

Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress in two parts, the first of which was published in London in 1678 and the second in 1684. He began the work in his first period of imprisonment, and probably finished it during the second. The earliest edition in which the two parts combined in one volume came in 1728. A third part falsely attributed to Bunyan appeared in 1693, and was reprinted as late as 1852. Its full title is The Pilgrim’s Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come.

The Pilgrim’s Progress is arguably one of the most widely known allegories ever written, and has been extensively translated. Protestant missionaries commonly translated it as the first thing after the Bible. At one time, The Pilgrim’s Progress was considered the most widely read and translated book in the English language apart from the Bible.

The Suppliant Maidens

by Aeschylus

Along with Sophocles and Euripides, Aeschylus (circa 524-455 B.C.) is one of the triumvirate of Ancient Greek playwrights responsible for much of the establishment of Western drama as it exists today. Aeschylus was the first whose work survived and is credited as the Father of Tragedy, though the other two are probably better known in the West today. He was famous even among his contemporaries; Aristotle mentions how he revolutionized plays by creating more characters and having them interact with each other to produce conflict.

Some of the Ancient Greeks’ most famous characters are famous because of Aeschylus, none more so than Orestes. Aeschylus is believed to have written nearly 100 plays, but less than 10 survived, chief among them being the trilogy known as The Oresteia, consisting of the three tragedies Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides. He’s also credited for Prometheus Bound, though the authorship of that one is still in dispute. 

The War In Plymouth: Destruction And A New Beginning

by Word Machine

Plymouth suffered the most devastating aerial bombing onslaught during World War Two, matched only by the impacts on London and Coventry. Civilian fatalities reached 1,172, casualties 4,448, while over the course of the war 3,754 houses were destroyed and a further 18,398 seriously damaged.

The city survived, as did the spirit of its residents, signified by the famous Resurgam sign nailed above the door of the ruined church of St Andrew’s. From 1945 to 1955, one of the most remarkable civic planning and building exercises ever seen in Europe was undertaken, resulting in the building of 17,000 new homes. The city of Plymouth as it is known today owes its shape and structure to the war and the succeeding years of rebuilding.

Over a period of two years from 2013 to 2015, researchers working with The Word Machine Community Interest Company conducted oral history interviews with Plymouth residents who could remember both the war years and the subsequent civic renaissance. This volume contains a summary of some of those interviews, together with photographs of the interviewees taken by Fotonow CIC.

The War in Plymouth: Destruction and a New Beginning has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

History: Fiction or Science? Chronology 1

by Anatoly Fomenko

History: Fiction or Science? is the most explosive tractate

on history ever written – however, every theory

it contains, no matter how unorthodox, is backed by

solid scientific data.

The book contains 446 graphs and illustrations, copies

of ancient manuscripts, and countless facts attesting

to the falsity of the chronology used nowadays,which

never cease to amaze the reader.

Eminent mathematician proves that:

Does this sound uncanny? This version of events is

substantiated by hard facts and logic, validated by

new astronomical research and statistical analysis of

ancient sources – to a greater extent than everything

you may have read and heard about history before.

The dominating historical discourse in its current

state was essentially crafted in the XVI century from

a rather contradictory jumble of sources such as innumerable

copies of ancient Latin and Greek manuscripts

whose originals had vanished in the Dark Ages

and the allegedly irrefutable proof offered by late mediaeval

astronomers, resting upon the power of ecclesial

authorities. Nearly all of its components are

blatantly untrue!

For some of us, it shall possibly be quite disturbing

to see the magnificent edifice of classical history turn

into an ominous simulacrum brooding over the snake

pit of mediaeval politics. Twice so, in fact: the first

time, the legendary millenarian dust on the ancient

marble turn into a mere layer of dirt – one that meticulous

unprejudiced research can eventually remove.

The second, and greater, attack of unease comes with

the awareness of just how many areas of human

knowledge still trust the three elephants of the consensual

chronology to support them. Nothing can

remedy that except for an individual chronological

revolution happening in the minds of a large enough

number of people.
