Albert Williams was the special war correspondent of "The Outlook" in France and Belgium during the First World War. In these early days of the conflict, Albert was riding up and down the lines and even crossed over to the German side. Unfortunately he found himself on the wrong side of a German bayonet and quickly marched into captivity as a possible spy.

If you think today's profiteers are diabolical, blink again. It is the summer of 1914. As the world teeters on the brink of the Great War, a callow American painter, Francis Wyndham, arrives at a renowned European insane asylum, where he begins offering art therapy under the auspices of Alessandro Caligari - sinister psychiatrist, maniacal artist, alleged sorcerer. And determined to turn the impending cataclysm to his financial advantage, Dr. Caligari will - for a price - allow governments to parade their troops past his masterpiece: a painting so mesmerizing it can incite entire regiments to rush headlong into battle. The Asylum of Dr. Caligari is a timely tale that is by turns funny and erotic, tender and bayonet sharp - but ultimately emerges as a love letter to that mysterious, indispensable thing called art. 1.

Former ranger Jack Smith watched an Army bio-warfare experiment go horribly wrong in an Afghan village in 2001, escaping only after he turned to a makeshift mace and bayonet to destroy the skulls of the infected creatures that bullets to the chest could not stop. With the traumatic experience seared into his mind, he earned his PhD, in ancient history and began developing medieval weapons-making skills after he left the service. When the virus broke free from the Hindu-Kush Mountains a decade later and rapidly spread across the globe, Jack knew how to fight the monsters created by the infection: 21st-century technology combined with deadly medieval tactics and weaponry. Jack and his former squad mates lead a resistance against a zombie apocalypse in a crusade to ensure humanity's survival. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J.W. Vohs.

In 1914, a new kind of war came about, bringing with it a new kind of world. World War One began on horseback, with generals employing bayonet charges to gain ground, and ended with attacks resembling the Nazi blitzkriegs. The scale of devastation was unlike anything the world had seen before: 14 million combatants died, a further 20 million were wounded, and four empires were destroyed. Even the victors' empires were fatally damaged. An overwhelming disaster from which the world is still recovering, World War One can seem baffling in its complexity. But now Norman Stone, one of world's greatest military historians, has composed a dazzlingly lucid and succinct history of the conflict. Stone has distilled a lifetime of teaching, arguing, and thinking into this brisk and opinionated account of the fundamental tragedy of the 20th century. 1. Language: English.

1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord “Butcher” Bedford. He stabs Lucy Tarleton — who spurned his king and his love — leaving her to die in her father’s arms. Now: After the day’s final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up…and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford’s desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet. Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison — a noted historian — is indignant at the prospect of “ghost hunters” investigating this apparent murder. Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs. Has “Butcher” Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest — dead or alive — has taken over the house. Or their lives could become history! 1.

This is audiobook #21 in the Casca Series. Casca Longinus, cursed by Christ on Golgotha. Condemned to outlive the ages, and wander the globe a constant soldier. Forever fighting, surviving and waiting for Him to return. It was the last gasp of Europe's royal families. World War I began with the assassination of an obscure archduke. But before it ended, most of Europe would turn into a corpse-littered battleground. It was mankind's first modern war. Thousands would die in the hail of machine gun fire, by the burning agony of mustard gas, and on the blood-soaked steel of a bayonet. There was no honor in the rat-infested trenches or heroism for the dead who hung rotting on the barbed wire gates to no man's land. And for Casca, the Eternal Mercenary, there was only the horror of a new kind of war and a bitter envy for the dead. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Engene.
