Call of Duty: WW2 is an FPS PC game developed by Sledgehammer Games in cooperation with Raven Software and published by Activision in 2017. It is the 1st game in the COD series to be set in the period of World War 2 since released in 2008 World at War. The game features the single-player campaign, taking players through the events of Operation Cobra and Battle of Bulge; online multiplayer, where players are pitted against each other as either Axis or Allies; and “the Nazi Zombie” mode, where players must cooperate to survive against the undead Nazi army.Plot of the game and charactersThe plot of the single-player campaign of the game takes place during major military operations of Second World War – The D-Day, Operation Cobra and the Battle of Bulge. The main character of CoD: WWII is U.S. Army Private First Class Red Daniels – the member of 1st Infantry Division. He and his platoon march across war-torn Europe taking part in decisive battles of World War II. It is a dangerous road, one that will test the loyalty and strength of bonds between the men.GameplayDue to its more realistic approach and historical setting WW2 does away with many of the staples of previous games in the series, set in modern and even futuristic times, such as wall runs, double jumps and power slides. Instead of the latter, a new mechanic called “hit the deck” was introduced.This move allows the player to lunge forward and quickly get to cover. The unlimited sprint mode from two previous titles in the series makes its return.The single player campaign also reintroduces health bar system from earliest installments. Instead of finding cover and waiting for health to regenerate over time, players must seek out health packs to restore lost HP.Health packs are also provided by main character’s squadmates, who will also support player with additional ammunition and grenades. They can also call in a mortar strike and spot enemies, revealing their position to the player. Certain parts of the game allow capturing prisoners and dragging wounded allies to cover. In some sections, the player can control vehicles.Online modesCall of Duty: WWII includes a multiplayer mode, in which players compete online as either Axis or Allies. On Allies side, players can choose from American, British and Soviet armies, as well as the French Resistance. On the Axis side, there are only members of Wehrmacht. WWII's multiplayer introduces Divisions system, which replaced traditional create-a-class mechanic. There are five divisions in total, each with different basic training, division training and weapons skills. While progressing through ranks in divisions, players gain additional perks.The divisions player can choose in multiplayer are:Infantry – the most versatile, mid to long range, special skill is bayonet charge;Airborne – fast and quiet, players can use suppressors on sub-machine guns for stealth gameplay;Armored – heavy firepower, less damage from fire and explosives;Mountain – long ranged, more precise sniper rifles with aim assist, blocking out surroundingsExpeditionary – shotguns with incendiary rounds, lethal and tactical grenades replenished by killing enemies;Resistance – stealth close quarter combat with knife and pistol, sense nearby enemies and scramble their radar at close range;Cavalry – riot shield increases defense, charge at enemies, improved objective skills;Commando – allows lacing flare on the map, creating respawn point, perks focused on health regeneration.COD: WW2 includes Headquarters mode which serves as a social hub of the game, where players can train at the shooting range with all available weapons, watch other player open loot boxes as well as take them on in one on one duels.Partnership with Raven Software resulted in a new mode called “War”. Two teams of 6 gamers carry objectives as either Allies or Axis through various historical battles, such as Normandy landing, where players can either assault Omaha beach as Allies or defend it as the Axis.Other multiplayer game modes include Team Deathmatch, Domination and Hardpoint.Nazi zombiesWave-based survival cooperative game mode, popularized by the series, where players take control of one of four characters, each representing different class: Offense, Control, Medic and Support, which possess different in-game abilities, specific loadouts and Raven Mods – perks similar to those in multiplayer. The mode includes a hint mechanic which helps players progress through the story of the mode.

The Real-Life World's Most Interesting Men: Vic...

Everybody imagines the world's most interesting man to be a fictional, gray-haired lothario who drinks Mexican beer and boasts of his legendary exploits. But what if a man like this really lived? It turns out he did, and there were two of them--both Victorian explorers. The first was Richard Franics Burton, an adventurer who learned 29 languages, went undercover as a Muslim on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and wrote 50 books on topics ranging from a translation of the Kama Sutra to a manual on bayonet exercises. The second was Sir Richard Stanley, who led a massive expedition through Africa to find Dr. Livingston. By the time of his death in 1904, he had explored much of the continent and developed much of the interior. Stanley's greatest expedition was his 1874-1877 crossing of Africa on foot to the mouth of the Congo, traveling more than 7,000 miles and contending with the threat of malaria, unknown wild animals in the jungle, unfriendly tribesmen, harsh weather conditions, worries about running out of food, and any number of incomprehensible threats to their lives on that dangerous voyage. Learn about the lives of these two extraordinary men and how a beer pitchman could never hope to live up to them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

In the tradition of Band of Brothers, acclaimed combat historian Patrick K. O’Donnell cinematically tells one of World War II’s greatest untold stories. It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can mean the difference between victory and defeat. This is the dramatic story of 68 soldiers in the US Army's Second Ranger Battalion, Company D - "Dog Company" - who made that difference, time and again. From D-day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the sheer 90-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the slopes of Hill 400, in Germany’s Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field; to a "quiet" section of the Ardennes, where Dog Company suddenly found itself on the tip of the spear at the Battle of the Bulge; the men of Dog Company made the difference. America had many heroes in World War II; however, few can say that, but for them, the course of the war would have been very different. The right men, the right place, the right time - Dog Company. Patrick K. O’Donnell is the award-winning author of eight books, including the highly acclaimed account of the Battle of Fallujah We Were One. He has provided historical consulting for Band of Brothers and multiple documentaries. He lives in Austin, Texas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pruden.

Law & Order UK - Series 3

Episode 1 - BrokenThe terrifying CCTV image of a toddler being led to his death haunts this episode of Law & Order UK which deals with the difficult and morally complex issue of children who kill. As a society, we are very unforgiving of child killers but if the killers themselves are only children, it begs the question - who really is responsible for the crime? With two children in the frame, each blaming the other, can forensic evidence prove who is guilty of strangling little Conor to death? In an emotionally gut wrenching episode, George defies his superiors and instead takes instruction from the victim’s mother who has a surprising point of view on the crime. But, in an unforgiving landscape, can the justice system, and ultimately the government, afford to be lenient?Episode 2 - HoundedWhen the body of a 16 year old girl is found dead in her home in the middle of the afternoon, the investigating police cannot be sure a crime was even committed. With no forensic evidence and nothing to suggest the victim didn’t die of natural causes, Matt and Ronnie question why they have been called out in the first place. However, the mother’s victim believes she was raped because she never slept naked. On further investigation, an unlikely murder weapon is uncovered and a likely suspect - someone with whom Crown Prosecutor James Steel has a history. Determined the accused is guilty, James pursues him with every power available. Like a man possessed, he pushes the boundaries of the law to the legal limit. Is our hero persecuting an innocent man or justified in his convictions?Episode 3 - DefenceWhen three people are brutally murdered in a shop in central London and a fourth left for dead, Matt and Ronnie are up against the clock to find the killer who they fear could strike again at any moment. The nature of the attack was frenzied and brutal with the killer using a bayonet to slay his victims. With this information and a photofit, Matt and Ronnie are quickly must identify the killer before they strike again. James assumes a straightforward case ahead of him. However, things take an unexpected turn when he learns that the defendant has brilliant legal support. With the case for defence looking very strong, James’ only hope is to convince a deluded defendant to accept responsibility for his crimes.Episode 4 - ConfessionThis week’s case hits close to home for DS Matt Devlin when investigating the death of a police officer, and his best friend, PS Pete Garvey. Devlin and Garvey had known each other since childhood and when Matt discovers Pete had recently been in contact with their childhood parish priest Jonathan Nugent (Matthew Marsh), his suspicions are alerted as Pete claimed to have been sexually abused by him as a child. With nothing but suspicions and unfounded rumours to go on, a murder charge cannot be brought against Nugent. Now a married man with a family of his own, can Matt really be sure they’ve got the right man? James and Alesha take an unusual approach in order to bring a charge - any charge - against the accused in a desperate attempt to get the case home.Episode 5 - SurvivorSurvivor begins with the investigation into the murder of Prison Officer Charlie Tyner who is found shot dead on a council estate in Hackney. It soon comes to light that, rather than being the good clean officer of Her Majesty’s Prison Service we first believe him to be, Charlie Tyner is corrupt and taking advantage of his position in prison in a number of ways. There are plenty of prisoners inside with reason enough to want to kill Charlie but, being in prison, they have solid alibis so who killed Charlie and why? Crown Prosecutors James Steel and Alesha Phillips find themselves at odds with their boss, George Castle, who is keen to bring to justice the killer of a prison officer. James and Alesha can’t help but feel Tyner’s abuse should be brought into consideration when charging the accused. And they have their eye on a much greater prize - a career criminal connected to Tyner who has evaded the justice system for too long. Can James and Alesha convince the key witness to give evidence against a man she claims to love?Episode 6 - MasqueradeThe mystery surrounding the stabbing of student, Archie Rahman, has our cops chasing their tails when the only clue they have to go on is a library book checked out on the day of his murder. Two students connected to the book have given an alibi for each other but one of them is lying and it’s down to our cops to find out which one. When the perpetrator eventually confesses and claims to have acted in self-defence, Alesha is forced to face past demons. It’s a delicate balancing act for James who is tasked not only with prosecuting the offender but also with defending a dead victim. Unless the truth of what happened that day is uncovered, a murderer could walk free or an innocent victim be wrongly convicted.Episode 7 - AnonymousFor two years, Stephanie Blake (Michelle Bonnard) has been stalked by a man who calls himself ‘Giovanni’. She knows nothing about him but he knows everything about her right down to the finest details of what she keeps in her bathroom cabinet. Over time, his e-mails and calls have become more intimidating but without an actual physical threat against her, there is very little the police can do for Stephanie. After initial investigations lead nowhere, the police are forced to abandon the case. Then something happens which shakes our police heroes to their very core. What should be a straightforward prosecution becomes complicated when a key piece of evidence is excluded. Up against Defence Barrister Evelyn Wyndham (Anna Chancellor), James has his work cut out for him. When one of the cops becomes a key witness for the prosecution, the question arises of whether his motivation is genuine or borne out of guilt. Will he perjure himself in order to get the right result?

History's Greatest Generals: 10 Commanders Who ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the #1 bestselling author of The Crusades and the Soldiers of the Cross comes an exciting new book on the greatest minds of military leadership in history. Whether it is Hannibal of Carthage marching elephants across the Alps and attacking the heart of Rome, Khalid ibn al-Walid boasting an undefeated military career and destroying the Persian Empire while subduing the Byzantines, or Russian General Alexander Suvurov and his elevation of the bayonet to a work of art that could cut down any European army, great military leaders have exerted tremendous influence on society. This book will look at the lives of the 10 greatest military commanders in history. Some conquered the fullest expanse of the known world, as did Alexander the Great. Still others were master statesmen and capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains, such as Julius Caesar, whose vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of unmatchable Roman imperial might. It will also look at the tactics they used to bring down stronger armies and befuddle them at every turn; whether it is Napoleon, who nearly conquered Europe through his deadly manoeuvre sur les derrieres and marching unexpectedly away from the enemy's main strength and concentrating on a weak but vital enemy point; or Hannibal's double entrapment maneuver, which has been the envy of military strategists for the last 2,000 years. Whatever their background, these rulers show that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever. 1.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"One of the most important books I've ever read-an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world." - Bill Gates"Hans Rosling tells the story of 'the secret silent miracle of human progress' as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly." -Melinda Gates"Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack ObamaFactfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends-what percentage of the world's population live in poverty; why the world's population is increasing; how many girls finish school-we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective-from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). Our problem is that we don't know what we don't know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn't mean there aren't real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future. ---"This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn't enough. But I hope this book will be." Hans Rosling, February 2017.
