A Long Strange Road

by Edwin Erickson

This story describes my story of life from 1948 to 1976. It tells about what living in South Los Angeles was like. It tells about what living in the turbulent decade of the 60s was like. It tells about the U.S. Army, life in college, and life as a hippie into drugs and sex was like. It is a personal story which can be shared with anyone who also lived during those times can appreciate. It is a unique life story, one in which some insight into the American experience can be gained.



The Colonel’s Way: The Secret Diaries of a POW- The Philippines; 1941-1945

by Heather Shreve

From a true hero with a military career that bridges five decades comes a titanic story of survival; a compassionate leader with unsurpassed integrity who was “â?¦ made of steel, dipped in stardust.”

In this book, compiled by the granddaughter of Colonel Shreve, is a vivid tribute to the remarkable life of Colonel Arthur L. Shreve, Jr. In 1917, Arthur, a charismatic teenager from Baltimore, decides to become a flyer in WWI, beginning a long career which leads him back in 1941 to be one of the first soldiers to combat Japanese forces in World War II. Taken captive [after the American surrender in the Philippines] suddenly Arthur’s life becomes an unforgettable tale of guts, American ingenuity and bravery for 1,400 unbearable days and nights as a POW under conditions of incomprehensible brutality. Yet- he continues to fight, caring for the men entrusted to him, enduring unspeakable torture, malnourishment and disease, as Arthur’s bereaved wife Judy confronts her own demons as she raises a family as a single mother on the home front.

Despite the odds stacked against him, Shreve was able to subtly resist his Japanese captors, feeding intelligence and equipment to a resistance network in Manila, carrying out sabotage of Japanese communications, and constructing a small radio to stay informed of America’s approaching victory. Surviving against unbelievable odds, Shreve never broke faith with his family, his country or his God.

Fully aware that discovery of his documents would mean certain death, Shreve compiled a record of Japan’s treatment of the Americans with whom he served. He constantly risks everything and hides his diaries in Filipino school books and then buries them. He gets money through the Underground to buy food for his men, and ‘listens in’ on the Japanese with his home-made clandestine canteen radio. In a final act of justice, Colonel Shreve’s testimony concerning Japan’s treatment of American prisoners becomes indisputable evidence in the ensuing Pacific war crimes trials, and plays a key role in the conviction of his tormentors.

The Colonel’s Way will reignite your sense of patriotism and faith, proving without a doubt that Americans can endure any hardship.
In these remarkable diaries, experience his way of living [and being] that will never leave you with regrets. His brand of inspiration:
THE COLONEL’S WAY!
Find out why the light of a hero never goes out.

Le confessioni (Indice attivo) (Italian Edition)

by Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy

Questo libro contiene ora diversi sommari HTML che renderanno la lettura un vero piacere!

Il libro è un racconto autobiografico dell’autore in un momento della sua vita in cui attraversa una crisi di malinconia esistenziale. Descrive la sua ricerca di risposte alle domande profonde: “Cosa uscirà da ciò che faccio oggi? cosa farò domani? Cosa uscirà dalla mia vita? E “Qual è il significato della vita? “, Senza risposte per lui e che rendono la vita” impossibile “.
Tolstoj parla della sua infanzia, del suo abbandono della sua fede ortodossa russa, della sua padronanza della forza, della sua volontà di potenza e di come, dopo aver raggiunto il successo finanziario e un considerevole status sociale, la sua vita non avesse più alcun significato.

Dopo aver disperato i suoi tentativi di trovare risposte nella scienza, nella filosofia, nella saggezza orientale e nei suoi colleghi scrittori, “confessa” di aver trovato la risposta al suo dolore nelle profonde convinzioni religiose ortodosse dei cittadini comuni . Descrive come ha presentato il suo scetticismo razionale e l’orrore della “superstizione delle verità cristiane” al fine di ottenere la pace mentale di cui aveva bisogno per rendere possibile la sua “sopravvivenza”.

Il termine “confessione” è stato usato perché Tolstoy era ben consapevole di essere contrario ai pregiudizi anti-religiosi / atei che dominavano gran parte dell’élite laica russa ed europea (di default a causa delle carenze dell’ortodossia ).
