This is audiobook #3 in the Casca Series. Casca awoke from a drugged sleep and saw his spear thrust into the side of the man on the cross. His spear...lost when he was sent from Judea! It wasn´t a vision - it was the beginning of a threat which would follow Casca through eternity, and cost him the use of his hand. As Doctor Goldman is soon to learn, it is just the beginning of an adventure which would take Casca behind the Great Wall of the Hidden Empire, China. He would rise to the position of War Lord, and heir to the throne, only to be buried alive at the whim of a frustrated royal concubine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Engene.

Carlo D´Este´s brilliant biography examines Winston Churchill through the prism of his military service as both a soldier and a warlord: a descendant of Marlborough who, despite never having risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, came eventually to direct Britain´s military campaigns as prime minister and defeated Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito for the democracies. Warlord is the definitive chronicle of Churchill´s crucial role as one of the world´s most renowned military leaders, from his early adventures in India and the Boer War through his extraordinary service in both World Wars. 1.

Why did Greece reach such heights in the classical period - and why only then? And how, after ´´the Greek miracle´´ had endured for centuries, did the Macedonians defeat the Greeks, seemingly bringing an end to their glory? Drawing on a massive body of newly available data and employing novel approaches to evidence, Josiah Ober offers a major new history of classical Greece and an unprecedented account of its rise and fall. Ober argues that Greece´s rise was no miracle but rather the result of political breakthroughs and economic development. The extraordinary emergence of citizen-centered city-states transformed Greece into a society that defeated the mighty Persian Empire. Yet Philip and Alexander of Macedon were able to beat the Greeks in the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BCE, a victory made possible by the Macedonians´ appropriation of Greek innovations. After Alexander´s death, battle-hardened warlords fought ruthlessly over the remnants of his empire. But Greek cities remained populous and wealthy, their economy and culture surviving to be passed on to the Romans - and to us.
