The Greek Wants a Wife: A Bride for the Island Prince / Georgie´s Big Greek Wedding? / Greek Doctor Claims His Bride (Mills & Boon By Request): Rebecca Winters, Emily Forbes, Margaret Barker
The Great Commanders is a masterly portrait of six men - Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Horatio Nelson, Napoleon Bonaparte, Ulysses S. Grant and Georgi Zhukov - whose military genius changed the course of world history. Providing a refreshing new opportunity to compare soldiers from such disparate backgrounds and periods, each chapter focuses on the life and achievements of one of the commanders, considering their motivation, overall strategy, tactical skill, and the vital importance of each man´s special personal qualities. What forces drove them? Did Nelson´s legendary victory at Trafalgar in 1805 derive from his brilliance as a naval tactician alone? Does Marshal Zhukov´s triumphant conquest of Berlin in 1945 justify the claim that he was the greatest general of the Second World War? Concentrating on one battle in particular for each commander, this penetrating study brilliantly illustrates the thinking, method, and individual dynamism behind the great military campaign. 1.

Lana Dukovskaya has spent her life in her mother Marina´s shadow, and nowhere more so than at Russia´s world-famous Bolshoi, where Marina danced years ago.

Once in New York, Lana meets Georgi Levshik, a powerful Russian émigré who claims to know the truth about Marina´s past. She´s torn between her distrust of Levshik´s offered patronage and her need for answers. But when another young dancer is struck down on the day of her debut, Lana becomes the prime suspect in not one but two attacks. On the run and still in the dark, Lana puts her trust in Levshik´s alluring young bodyguard, Roma. Together they must uncover the truth about a Bolshoi blood feud involving three generations of Dukovskaya dancers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andi Arndt.
