<h2>Explore the Rise of Adolf Hitler</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.<br /><br />This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone—that this book is about. <br /><br /><h2>Some of the topics covered in this book include:</h2><br /><ul><li>Hitler's Origins</li><li>His Inception</li><li>The anti-Semitic capital of Europe</li><li>Munich</li><li>First World War</li><li>Hitler's Ascension</li><li>Mein Kampf</li><li>His Downfall</li><li>The remains of Adolf Hitler</li><li>And a Great Deal More that You don't Want to Miss out on!</li></ul><h2>Scroll to the top and download the book for instant access!</h2>

<h1>☆ The Renaissance ☆</h1><br />During the Middle Ages, the nations of Europe forged new identities that moved them away from the lost glory of the Roman Empire into their own ethnicity. The experience of maturation was often clumsy and out of step, an evolutionary process that saw the nation's developing at their own pace as they struggled to replace the protection of Rome with their own home-grown strength. What the nations, once they were ready to be described in that manner, did have was the Roman Catholic Church, which defined itself as the spiritual protector of Christian believers. But the dutiful Christians of the Middle Ages who sought orthodoxy and for the most part obeyed the papal rules underwent a change when the Middle Ages ended. The Renaissance, or rebirth, was a period of time when Europeans began to question what they had been told was sacrosanct. Through art, inventions, science, literature, and theology, the separate nations of the European continent sought answers that the Roman Catholic Church was unwilling, or perhaps unable, to offer. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Rebirth of Europe<br />✓ The Italian Renaissance<br />✓ The French Renaissance<br />✓ The Spanish Renaissance<br />✓ The German Renaissance<br />✓ The Low Countries Renaissance<br />✓ The English Renaissance<br />✓ Here Be Dragons: Exploring the Unknown<br /><br />The Church that had become a powerful political entity was viewed with distrust and skepticism by many Christians; the spread of learning that accompanied the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press meant that bold new ideas were traveling across the boundaries of Europe faster than the Church could silence them. Lascivious, power-brokering popes could not bring a halt to the challenges they encountered when a German priest rebelled against corrupt practices that masqueraded as ecclesiastical authority. As the walls came tumbling down, humanism burst forth, inspiring the art of Michelangelo, the science of Vesalius, the literature of Shakespeare and Cervantes. But with the loss of religious uniformity came terrible conflicts: France suffered the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre; Spain welcomed the Inquisition to purge heresy; the Low Countries were split between Catholic and Protestant. The Renaissance was a triumph of the human spirit and a confirmation of human ability, even as it affirmed the willingness of men and women to die for the right to think freely.

She left from England in September of 1620, carrying 102 English Separatists to a new life, one that came with the freedom to practice their religious beliefs as they saw fit. These Pilgrims had the courage of their convictions. They had already potentially faced execution for practicing their beliefs and now they were willing to uproot their lives, their families, and their homes, to sign contracts of indentured servitude for them and their children - all to find what they called freedom in a foreign land. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ How Religious Upheaval Shaped American Colonization<br />✓ The Ship that Launched a Nation’s Future<br />✓ The Contract and the Crossing<br />✓ Arrival in America<br />✓ Early Life in the Colonies<br />✓ Pilgrims and Puritans<br />✓ The Ideology that Shaped a Nation<br /><br />Their journey was one of courage and destiny as they forged ahead, crossing an ocean to settle in a harsh environment. They faced storms and dangerous adversaries to get to the New World. There, they built a life based on the values they held sacred, and those values would form the foundation of a new nation almost a century later. This eBook tells the story of their adventure in a concise yet thorough manner that is packed with historical detail and enjoyable to read.
