Product Description:
The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons – responsible for a ‘long history of atrocities’; and, at the other, as dodos – living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husband’s decaying body; the ‘heroically fertile’ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, ‘Emperor’ of Mexico.

Product Description:
166 pp. 18 photos, maps, & illus; index. The Palatine Families of Ireland documents the genealogies of all those courageous families who left their German homes and were settled by the British in Ireland. The product of forty years of research in Ireland, England, Germany, the United States and Canada, this volume chronicles the lives of all these emigrants and their descendants, often to the third generation. The German origins of many families are discussed, taking some lines back into the 1600s. Many of the families, after living in Ireland for fifty years, kept moving on to the New World and arrived in colonial New York in the 1760s. Many of this group then migrated to Canada due to the American revolution, and their descendants stayed loyal to the Crown - many becoming United Empire Loyalists such as the Dulmage, Embury, Heck, Ruckle, Detlor, and Lawrence families. This book is yet another companion volume to Henry Z Jones's lifelong project of documenting, using original sources, all the families in the great Palatine exodus of 1709/10.

Product Description:
The Lone Star State takes its name from the icon on its famous flag, a flag whose story adds a unique dimension to the dramatic history of Texas. This beautiful book dramatically portrays the significance of the red, white, and blue standard with its single five-point star, the visual distillation of more than a hundred years of history.

In the flag's early incarnations, homespun cotton, ladies’silk dresses, and various other goods provided the materials used for banners to lead Texans in battle and in nation-building. Historian Robert Maberry, Jr., skillfully traces the use of the lone star symbol in the nineteenth century and describes in detail the various flags that have either incorporated it or used other symbols altogether.

Texas’ now-famous flag, Maberry has discovered, was not always a common sight in the state. Though it had been the national flag during the last six years of the Republic (1839–45), the original lone star flag was discarded in favor of the Stars and Stripes upon annexation in 1845. Indeed, by 1860 few Texans knew what their former national standard had looked like. During the years of secession and Civil War, Texans became reacquainted with the old flag, but they made relatively few copies of it, using the lone star emblem instead on the battle flags of the various units. When officials of the Confederacy mandated new “national” flags, Texans often modified them to reflect their own independent heritage.

The Texas flags pictured and described in this book were historical objects often of considerable artistry and, in many cases, ingenuity on the part of their makers in times of scarcity. Some of these historic flags still exist and remain sources of inspiration. Their stories, and those of other banners that have long since disappeared, reveal much about the cultural and aesthetic preferences of the age in which they were fashioned and about the political winds in which they were unfurled.

Product Description:
A compelling 364-day sojourn in the life of young Dr. Rick Snider in the Vietnam War. The captivating journey unfolds in the event-filled year, 1968, and goes from basic training at Fort Sam Houston, to Cu Chi, Tay Ninh, and Saigon, and, finally, the memorable, long-awaited trip back home. Not the usual war story of men killing men, but rather this story is about a young surgeon sent to lead a medical company whose mission was to save lives, not take them. Travel along with Dr. Snider as he brings comfort and caring to places filled with death and suffering. Laugh out loud when the young captain unknowingly shouts at a three-star general. Be surprised when sirloin steaks are condemned only to end up being barbecued for the wounded soldiers to eat. Feel the profound grief of an 18-year-old GI when he prays over the body of his fallen buddy, and cry at the loss of three of the captain’s medics when enemy rockets abruptly and brutally kill them. Experience the reli! ef R&R brings on Hawaii’s sunny shores, only to be washed away by the return to war. Learn how our soldiers carried out the war, honorably and with total concern for others. Dr. Snider brings to the surface the wide spectrum of human emotions experienced by those in war. Delta Six was written so that all can know and honor those lonely soldiers who suffered and died so far from home.
