            On April 24th 1915 Armenian intellectuals of the Ottoman Empire were arrested en masse marking the beginning of the Armenian Genocide. The following day, April 25th 1915, saw the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landing at Gallipoli. This book draws the connections between t...hese two landmark historical events: the genocide of the minority Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire and the Anzac soldiers who fought at Gallipoli during World War I. Through eye witness accounts of Anzac soldiers witnessing the genocide, to a history of the Australasian involvement in the international Armenian relief campaign, and enduring discussions around genocide recognition, James Robins explores the international political implications that this unexplored history still has today.

            The driver was sweating as his explosive-filled pickup truck sped along a rain-slicked Baghdad highway toward a neighbourhood bustling with open-air markets. And he had another reason for panic - he was a spy who thought his cover had been blown. The Spymaster of Baghdad is the g...ripping story of the top-secret Iraqi intelligence unit that infiltrated the Islamic State. The information they gathered, more so than that of any foreign power, turned the tide against the insurgency. Set against the backdrop of the most brutal conflict of recent decades, we chart the spymaster's struggle to develop the Falcons from scratch in challenging circumstances following the American invasion of Iraq. But at the heart of the book is the fraught relationship of two of his agents - the Sudani brothers: one undercover in ISIS for 16 long months, the other his handler. We follow their emotional journey in this page-turning story of family, unlikely heroes and unbelievable courage. The unprecedented access to the whole cast of characters, from bomb-makers through spy chiefs, is remarkable. Pulitzer Prize-finalist Margaret Coker challenges the conventional view that western coalition forces defeated ISIS and we see that victory was down to old-fashioned spy craft. The Spymaster of Baghdad is compulsive, shocking and explosive reading. *** Margaret Coker is an investigative journalist. She has lived and worked in Iraq and the wider Middle East since 2003. An ex-Baghdad Bureau Chief for the New York Times, she honed her reporting skills at The Wall Street Journal where she was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize as part of a team chronicling Turkey's failed coup, political purges and teetering democracy. Her coverage of national security issues won the Overseas Press Club Award and the Edwin M. Hood Prize from the National Press Club, America's top prize for diplomatic reporting. This is her first book.

            The inspirational true story of an Allied POW appointed Kapellmeister to the Nazis in Auschwitz. When called up to fight in yet another World War, Drum Major Jackson promised his beloved wife Mabel that he would return to lead his band and play for her once more. In May 1940, he ...was captured at Dunkirk and interned in several German forced labour camps throughout Poland. Two years later he was transferred to Auschwitz IV, part of the notorious concentration camp complex where it is not widely known held Allied POWs. When his captors appointed Jackson their 'Kapellmeister' (man in charge of music), he seized the opportunity to provide entertainment for his fellow prisoners at rehearsals, and cover for escapees during concerts. Finally liberated in May 1945, malnourished and gravely ill, Jackson carried his secret war diary-an incredible expose on five years of life and death in Nazi concentration camps. THE MUSIC MAKER OF AUSCHWITZ IV, based on Jackson's diary, is written by his granddaughter. It is a thrilling testament to the resilience one man found in the darkest of times through his two greatest loves-music and the woman who waited for him.
