    The Second World War was one of the most traumatic events in human history. Across the world, existing conflicts became connected, entangling nations in a vast web of violence. It was fought on land, sea, and air, touching every inhabited continent. Over 55 million people died, some of them combatants, some civilians caught up in the violence, and some murdered by their own governments. 
    It was the war that unleashed the Holocaust and the atomic bomb upon the world. But it was also a war that featured acts of courage and self-sacrifice on every side. 
    D-Day, the Allied invasion of German-held Normandy, was one of the most extraordinary achievements not only of the Second World War but in the whole of military history. Millions of Allied personnel were involved in launching the greatest sea-borne invasion ever undertaken. Incredible acts of cunning and of courage ensured success in an operation that changed the face of the war, opening a vast new front. It led to the liberation of France and the defeat of Nazi Germany. 
    Why was this extraordinary operation launched? How was it done? And what happened in the aftermath? Listen to this audiobook now to learn more about World War 2 and D-Day!

    “Far surpasses anything anyone else has ever done about this pivotal engagement.” —The Journal of America’s Military Past 
     
    Chickamauga, according to soldier rumor, is a Cherokee word meaning “River of Death.” It certainly lived up to that grim sobriquet in September 1863 when the Union Army of the Cumberland and Confederate Army of Tennessee waged bloody combat along the banks of West Chickamauga Creek. Here, award-winning author David Powell embraces a fresh approach that explores Chickamauga as a three-day battle, rather than the two-day affair it has long been considered, with September 18 being key to understanding how the fighting developed the next morning. The second largest battle of the Civil War produced 35,000 casualties and one of the last clear-cut Confederate tactical victories—a triumph that for a short time reversed a series of Rebel defeats and reinvigorated the hope for Southern independence. At issue was Chattanooga, the important “gateway to the South” and logistical springboard into Georgia. 
     
    Despite its size, importance, and fascinating cast of characters, this epic Western Theater battle has received but scant attention. Powell masterfully rectifies this oversight with the first of three installments spanning the entire campaign. This volume includes the Tullahoma Campaign in June, which set the stage for Chickamauga, and continues through the second day of fighting on September 19.  
     
    Powell’s magnificent study fully explores the battle from all perspectives and is based upon fifteen years of intensive research that has uncovered nearly 2,000 primary sources from generals to privates, all stitched together to relate the remarkable story that was Chickamauga.

    They were born with nothing in a harsh world thousands of years ago. But that didn’t mean they would become no one. By building a better mind, body, and living the Spartan way, you'll become a stronger and a better person for this life.

    It's back-to-school season, and it's possible that families are hearing more about the concept of outdoor learning as educators determine how to reopen schools safely. Taking classes outside provides much more space and fresh air—both key during the pandemic, but children enrolled in "nature school" programs have been able to benefit from inquiry-based and hands-on learning for years. In this episode of Raising Curious Learners, hosts Ann and Elizabeth learn more about this approach to education from Tisha Luthy, the director of Cincinnati Nature Center's nature preschool.

    "Reality Check is a book I wish I had 15 years ago. It’s packed with examples and insights on how to get your questions right in order to improve and change. " — Ola Helland, Writer of the comedy/science TV show Brille. 
    Amidst the constant whirlwind of change, clarity feels elusive as we desperately grasp for answers when it’s the transformative power of questions that we truly need. Author Carlo Mahfouz, a fervent believer in the art of inquiry, invites us on a voyage to uncover the profound clarity within these catalytic moments—epiphanies he terms "Reality Checks." 
    Synthesizing decades of change leadership experience with research-backed frameworks, Carlo Mahfouz reverse-engineered these moments and laid bare the hidden preparations, allowing anyone to formulate the right strategic questions at the right time — bringing a philosophical perspective down to earth through Carlo's own immigrant journey, his unlikely opera training, and more to humanize each rich concept. 
    Mahfouz taps unconventional wisdom from interviews with global innovators from across the world, such as:CEO of the world’s first mind-controlled bionic arm;VP of strategy at a Fortune 500 science and technology innovator; Senior Executive at one of the world’s leading EdTech companies in Healthcare. 
    … and many more with experience ranging from working at NASA to Nonduality coaching and selfless leadership. 
    You’ll examine overlooked elements like context, time, and self-awareness through a potent new lens designed to upgrade your sense-making skills in chaotic times. Mahfouz aims to help you experience your own "Reality Check" to unlock the art of precision and presence in your leadership, innovation, and life.
