<h2>Discover the remarkable life of Voltaire in less than an hour...</h2><br /><b>Free <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />Voltaire, born François-Marie Arouet in Paris, France, was a writer and leading figure of the Enlightenment. His insistence that all authority could and must be questioned was so radical, he ended up in prison several times and was ultimately exiled. <br /><br />Voltaire’s writings were instrumental in influencing the American and French revolutions. Man as a being with natural rights was a radical concept at the time, but one which the American founding fathers embraced. Voltaire’s anger was specifically directed at the arbitrary powers of the state and the church. The French legal system treated aristocrats differently than ordinary citizens. The Catholic church, too, wielded its dictatorial power. Voltaire incurred the wrath of both kings and bishops with his unrelenting attacks on such abuses of freedom. Unwilling to be silenced, Voltaire continued his demand for individual freedom throughout the span of his entire life. Only after his death was he officially welcomed back to Paris, and Voltaire’s remains now rest in the Parisian Panthéon, the burial place for the country’s national heroes.<br /><br /><B>Discover a plethora of topics such as</B><br /><ul><li> Literary Success and Financial Failure</li><li> Émilie: The Love of His Life</li><li> Years in Exile</li><li> Candide and Morality</li><li> Voltaire’s Final Year and Death</li><li> And much more!</li></ul><b>So if you want a quick and easy to read book on Voltaire, simply scroll up and click the "Buy now" button for instant access!</b>

<h1>Marie Curie</h1><br /><b>* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *<br /><br />Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.</b><br /><br />One of the most famous women of the twentieth century, Marie Curie was a trailblazer in the truest sense. Known for her discovery of two radioactive elements, radium and polonium, Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize. She remains the only woman to win two Nobel Prizes in different sciences. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ Early Life and Loss<br />✓ The Flying University<br />✓ Nobel Prizes<br />✓ Scandals<br />✓ Curie’s First World War Efforts<br />✓ The Discovery that Killed Her<br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />Marie Curie lived by her own rules in a society marred by misogyny and xenophobia. A scientist, but also a loving wife and mother, she defied expectations as a matter of course. Curie also fought for her country during the First World War the best way she knew how—with science. There is much more to Marie Curie’s story than the discovery of the radioactive elements that eventually killed her.<br /><br /><i>Series Information: Biographies of Women in History Book 4</i>

A World War Two Historical Fiction Novel Based On A True Story<br /><br />A true story about a young boy growing up under the Third Reich.<br /><br />Karl Veth, the eldest of three children, was born in Berlin, Germany in 1930. By the time he was old enough to start school and begin his education, Hitler had established a firm death-grip on the country. Children were fed a steady diet of Nazi propaganda and were often encouraged to turn on their family and friends; however, contrary to popular belief, not all of them bought into it.<br /><br />Karl is an intelligent young boy who strives to excel in his studies, but he questions everything. Dangerous questions during a time when people are closely monitored. Karl’s father and grandfather are not blind followers and they have their own opinions about Hitler and his regime. The lessons they teach Karl often contradict what he is taught in school, yet they also inspire him to think on his own and form his own opinions.<br /><br />German law mandates all children must become members of the Hitler Youth and at the age of 10, Karl enters the Jungvolk, the junior branch of the Hitler Youth. He must wade through the propaganda and everything he is taught to decide for himself what is right and what it wrong. Little does he know at the time, many of his grandfather’s predictions about the future of the Third Reich will eventually come to pass. The lessons he learns now and the opinions he forms will determine his fate in dangerous times ahead.<br /><br />Books In The Series:<br /><br />Children To A Degree<br />Loyal To A Degree<br />Trust To A Degree<br />Partners To A Degree

<b>Dear Republican, if all the lies Fox News tells you about liberals were actually true, I'd hate liberals too. Who wouldn't?</b><br /><br />But that's the thing: virtually nothing you are being told about liberals is actually true. It's propaganda, designed to demonize liberals.<br /><br />Bill Maher keeps asking the guests on his show: "Why is the D for Democrat so toxic in red states?" Most liberals honestly have no idea why you Trump voters hate liberals so much.<br /><br />This is why:<br /><br /><b>You're being lied to, to make you hate liberals.</b><br /><br />Be honest: you can barely tolerate me even using the word liberal so many times in a few sentences, because to you it's such a toxic word. Liberals repulse you. They are barely even human, and definitely un-American, right? You think liberals are everything that is wrong with America. Liberals are wrong, bad and evil. Evil demons. America would be a much better place without liberals, right?<br /><br />That extremely negative emotional response in your head was created by malicious propaganda lies you have been fed about liberals.<br /><br />Here's a short list of true facts Fox News doesn't want you to know. And it's just the tip of the iceberg.<br /><br /><b>Hitler and the Nazis were not liberals, not lefties, not socialists, and not democrats. Hitler and his Nazi minions were right-wing Christian conservative nationalists who hated liberals for the same reasons you hate liberals.</b><br /><br />I know what you're thinking: 'That's freakin' crazy talk! That can't possibly be true! This guy is a deranged leftie libtard!"<br /><br />Well, I have news for you: it's <b>absolutely 100% true</b>. And I can easily <b>prove it to you</b> in this short book, if you give me 5 minutes.<br /><br /><b>This little book is packed with important information you never heard of, if you're a Fox News viewer. And every fact, every bit of information in this book is backed up by reputable sources like Encyclopedia Britannica, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, BBC News, The Guardian, The Independent, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Der Spiegel, CBS News, NBC News, Axios News, Military Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. </b>

<h1>★ Celtic Mythology ★</h1><br />The gifted W.B. Yeats wrote of his own people “...even a newspaperman, if you entice him into a cemetery at midnight, will believe in phantoms, for everyone is a visionary if you scratch him deep enough. But the Celt, unlike any other, is a visionary without scratching.” This introduction to Celtic Mythology will serve the novice well – for it is a complicated history with the earliest written records destroyed by the marauding Vikings. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Arrival of the Tuatha dé Danann<br />✓ Hibernia<br />✓ The Main Gods of the Celtic Pantheon<br />✓ Celtic Life and Rituals<br />✓ Sources of Celtic Mythology<br />✓ The Effect of Christianity and Beliefs and Superstitions<br /><br />The oral tradition harks back to 4000BCE and is a compilation of myths and cultures of many different peoples including the Indo-Iranians, Slavs, Greeks, Germans, Austrians and finally, the Gauls, who washed up on the shores of the Emerald Isle. Whatever aspect of this rich, mystical and lavishly embellished heritage you would like to investigate further you will find the author has supplied a marker to guide you on your way.

<h1>Vikings</h1><br />The saga of the Vikings rises and falls on the banks of history, ebbing and flowing with popular opinion and whimsical anecdotes. The Vikings are routinely typecast and labeled anywhere from bloodthirsty tyrants to valiant heroes. They have been condemned as pirates and praised as explorers. We have all heard the stories of the fierce warriors with long ships and horned helmets storming onto the shores of medieval Europe; but who were these men really? <br /><br /><h2>Inside your will read about...</h2><br />✓ From the Fury of the Northmen<br />✓ Retaliation, Royal Ambition, and Bribery<br />✓ The Viking Age of Exploration and Expansion<br />✓ Tidings from the East<br />✓ The End of the Viking Age<br />✓ The Vikings Come to Christ<br />✓ The Second Viking Invasion<br /><br />This book helps to unravel the mystery. Helping to finally shed the light on why the Vikings abruptly descended onto the world stage in such dramatic fashion, this book begins to explore the motives of the Viking exodus like no other and takes an in depth evaluation of all the geographical, political, economic and religious underpinnings that led the Viking Age. <br />

<h1>Winston Churchill</h1><br /><b>* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *<br /><br />Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.</b><br /><br />The man that the world knows as Winston Churchill looms large on the stage of world history. Like some sort of colossus from antiquity, Churchill strides between two major epochs in the world, one foot planted in the glory days of the British Empire when the sun never set on history’s largest known conglomeration of imperial holdings and the other planted firmly in the aftermath of World War Two, and a post-war order that saw that empire collapse, with Britain barely hanging on to its own sovereignty in the wake. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ Love and War <br />✓ Courting the Americans <br />✓ The Allies Show their Teeth <br />✓ Preparing for the Post-war World <br />✓ Wrestling the Reins of Power <br />✓ Churchill’s Hiatus <br />✓ The End of an Empire <br /><b>And much more!</b><br /><br />With the Iron Curtain descending over Europe, Churchill was the first to raise the alarm bell that signaled the start of the Cold War. Churchill was a master at the helm, navigating his country and to a much larger extent the world through some of its darkest hours, even while he battled some of his own personal demons of depression and doubt. Follow along as Churchill guides us through uncharted and uncertain waters through the sheer power of his own pugnacious pizzazz.
