    Logistics in World War II 1939–1943

    A history of the Second World War with a focus on supply, transport, and other crucial operations—includes photos.   Logistics, though less dramatic or glamorous than other aspects of war, nevertheless play a decisive role in the outcome of campaigns and battles. This book focuses on the role of logistics in World War II, marshaling some astounding facts and figures to convey the sheer scale of the task all belligerents faced to equip vast forces and supply them in the field.   Military historian John Norris also draws on firsthand accounts to illustrate what this meant for the men and women in the logistics chain and those depending on it at the sharp end. Many of the vehicles, from supply trucks to pack mules, and other relevant hardware are discussed and illustrated with numerous photographs. Numerous topics are covered—for example, how Hitler’s panzer divisions were kept rolling in the Blitzkrieg (a German division in 1940 still had around five thousand horses, requiring hundreds of tons of fodder) and the British army’s disastrous loss of equipment at Dunkirk. This is a fascinating and valuable study of a neglected aspect of World War II.

    A leading scholar of esoteric spirituality uncovers the history of Gnostic alchemy from Hellenistic Alexandria to the Renaissance.  
     
    In The Golden Builders, Tobias Churton eschews myth and pseudohistory to trace 1,600 years of Hermetic spiritual and philosophical development. In a breathtaking span of detailed research, he sheds light on the origins of Gnostic alchemy, pre-Grand Lodge Freemasonry, and the mysterious Fraternity of the Rosy Cross (the Rosicrucians). He introduces readers to great men of magic and spiritual wisdom such as Paracelsus, Caspar Schwenckfeld, Johann Valentin Andrae, and others.  
     
    This sweeping work is divided into three parts: Part 1 presents a broad survey of the Hermetic current and its transmissions from Hellenistic Alexandria to the time of Paracelsus. Part 2 focuses on the Rosicrucian movement as a vehicle of the Hermetic current, drawing on the research of scholars such as Carlos Gilly. Part 3 concentrates on Elias Ashmole, the English polymath, alchemist, astrologer, and early Freemason who carried the Hermetic current forward during the Renaissance. 
     
    Debunking myths while revealing genuine mysteries, The Golden Builders combines authoritative scholarship with deep spiritual wisdom.

    Do you like epic tales that sing the deeds of the world’s greatest heroes? 
    If so, you will love this volume of epics from the West African country of Mali. Each is full of battles and derring-do, magic, and prophecies based on historical events. The Epic of Sunjata tells the tale of the great thirteenth-century king of the Mali Empire, Sunjata Keita, who started life as a disabled boy but rose to become one of Mali’s greatest warriors and king of a vast empire. The Epic of Bakaridjan Koné, a proud epic in its own right, is but a part of the larger Epic of Bambara Segu, one of the longest African epics, detailing the history of the Segu Empire, which lasted from 1712 to 1861. Like Sunjata, Bakaridjan Koné is a formidable warrior; however, he has no designs on power, preferring only to serve his king with valorous deeds.  
    Here are just a few of the amazing episodes you’ll read in these epics:How a hunter prophesied that Sunjata would become the king of a great empire.How Sunjata was disabled at birth but learned to walk and gained superhuman strength.Sunjata’s exile from Mali and his growth into manhood.How Sunjata fought and defeated the evil sorcerer-king, Sumanguru Kanté.How a Muslim soothsayer prophesied that Bakaridjan Koné would outshine all of the king’s sons and become the greatest warrior of Segu.How Bakaridjan Koné performed the deeds of a hero while he was yet a boy.How Bakaridjan Koné defeated an evil water jinni that even King Da Monzon was afraid to challenge.How Bakaridjan Koné lost his honor and then regained it. How King Da Monzon tried to assassinate Bakaridjan but was foiled by Bakaridjan’s son.
