    This study examines the American mythology surrounding the Alamo and its influence on cultural identity, historical memory, and ethnic relations.   Over nearly two centuries, the Mexican victory over an outnumbered band of Alamo defenders has been transformed into an American victory for the love of liberty. Through a metamorphosis of memory and mythology, the Alamo became a master symbol in Texan and American culture. In Remembering the Alamo, Richard Flores examines how this transformation helped to shape social, economic, and political relations between Anglo and Mexican Texans from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries.   Flores looks at how heritage society members and political leaders sought to define the Alamo, and how their attempts reflected struggles within Texas society over the place and status of Anglos and Mexicans. Flores also explores how Alamo movies and the transformation of Davy Crockett into a hero-martyr have advanced deeply racialized, ambiguous, and even invented understandings of the past.

    An extensive history of the amphibious attack unit created by Nazi Germany during World War II.Hitler’s Secret Commandos is the history of the K-Verband naval commando unit, established in 1943 to wreak havoc amongst invading allied forces involved in amphibious landings or actions, against German-occupied coasts. Following the Italian and British example, the basic idea was for a small, exceptionally well-trained and reliable commando force using the maximum element of surprise. Midget U-boats and small torpedo-carrying craft along the lines of the “explosive boats” used by the Italian Navy were designed for individual operations while a naval assault troop was formed for missions against important enemy operational targets near the sea after being landed from naval vessels offshore. Using German archive material, first-hand accounts and other published material this is the first comprehensive history of the K-Verband. It charts the development, structure, selection, training and equipment the Commando unit used together with a detailed narrative of the operations undertaken. The material has been translated from a German text, previously published in Germany with wide acclaim.

    To understand the relationship between Athens and Sparta, Plutarch set out to examine the lives of Greece and all its former and current rivals in his Parallel Lives series. Agesilaus was one of those lives and was a notable king of Sparta prior to the Athens-Spartan war. Although he won and lost many battles for the city, his legacy lived on. He was a short-statured, lame man who managed to rule an entire city state – and many looked up to him after his death.
