<h3><em></em><strong></strong><br /></h3><h4><strong>A Gold Medal IPPI Winner<br /></strong></h4><h4><strong>Engaging and opulent, <em>The Warsaw Conspiracy</em> unfolds as a family saga set against the November Rising (1830-31), partitioned Poland's daring challenge to the Russian Empire. Brilliantly illustrating the psyche of a people determined to reclaim independence in the face of monumental odds, the story portrays two brothers and their fates in love and war. Michal is a seasoned veteran soldier, cautious of the evolving conspiracy; Jozef, his much younger brother and impassioned cadet, finds himself caught up in the vortex of a daring plot to abduct the Grand Duke of Russia. With Siberia or emigration to France looming as heart-rending contingencies, matriarchs Anna and Zofia stay steadfast in their resolve to steer the clan through ever-muddying waters.</strong><strong></strong></h4>

<b>The Fall of the Dynasties: The Collapse of the Old Order, 1905-1922</b> is remarkable account of the early twentieth century that uncovers the origins of the First World War as well as explaining how European power was dramatically different in 1922 to what it had been in 1905. In the aftermath of World War One four of the most powerful royal families had been deposed and the sprawling empires that they had once ruled over lay in tatters. In this fascinating account of the period from 1905 through to 1922 Taylor examines how these opulent dynasts existed upon a tightrope of power, where they were increasingly concerned with petty diplomatic squabbles between themselves and ignored the rebellious spirits of their subjects. <br />

<h1>Greek Mythology</h1><br /><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 />Greek Mythology is an enormous field of study and a brief guide is a daunting task for any writer. The myths have a way of entwining one with another, and it is difficult to present a coherent story line without feeling one has omitted the best part of the story. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ What Is A Myth?<br />✓ The Sources Of Greek Mythology<br />✓ The Creation Of The Universe And The Gods<br />✓ What Of Man? What Of Woman?<br />✓ The Greek Pantheon<br />✓ The Trojan War<br />✓ The Influence Of Greek Drama<br />✓ Two Greek Mortal Heroes In Mythological Tales<br /><br />This guide succeeds in presenting an overall sketch of the creation of the world and the battles that follow, resulting in Zeus taking his place as the supreme god and ruling the earth from Mount Olympus. It covers the creation of man, it seems, as a bit of an afterthought for the amusement of the Olympians and some of the most famous stories that have come down to us via the writings of the great dramatists of the Classical Age. There are concise biographies of the twelve gods that make up the Olympians as well as of the heroes of the Trojan War.

<h2>Explore the Captivating History of Europe</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />The history of people in Europe is a fascinating one that starts, as most do, with hunters, gatherers, and fishermen that eventually explode into a kaleidoscope of niche cultures—each with its own gods, goddesses, food staples, and building techniques. Initially quite isolated from one another, the people of Europe evolved intricate social systems and relationships with one another that eventually bonded them through trade and marriage. They built farms, villages, cities, and entire empires to protect their cultures and convert others to their ways of thinking, only to have it all crumble under the strength of the next warlord.<br /><br />Europe’s past is characterized by fighting and warfare, and it is punctuated with great works of art, philosophy, science, and technology. Even its recent history is much the same—that’s why so much of the globe was once ruled by European monarchies. Despite all the infighting and territorial exploits, Europeans have managed to create some of the most beautiful pieces of literature, architecture, political structures, and ideas the world has ever seen.<br /><br /><b>In <i>European History: A Captivating Guide to the History of Europe, Starting from the Neanderthals Through to the Roman Empire and the End of the Cold War</i>, you will discover topics such as</b><br /><ul><li>Prehistory</li><li>The Neolithic Revolution</li><li>The Bronze Age</li><li>Early Tribes of Europe</li><li>The Iron Age</li><li>Prehistoric Britain</li><li>The Classical Greeks</li><li>The Roman Empire</li><li>The Vikings</li><li>The Dark Ages</li><li>The Holy Roman Empire</li><li>The Rise of Wessex</li><li>The Norman Conquest</li><li>Marco Polo and Renaissance Italy</li><li>Joan of Arc</li><li>Isabella I of Castile</li><li>The Age of Discovery</li><li>The Reformation</li><li>The Enlightenment</li><li>The French Revolution</li><li>The Industrial Age</li><li>The British Empire of Queen Victoria</li><li>The Great War</li><li>The Russian Revolution</li><li>World War II</li><li>The Cold War Era</li><li>And much, much more!</li></ul><b>So if you want to learn more about European history, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!</b>
