            A personal account of WWI from the diaries of a Gisborne farm boy, shaped into a gripping narrative by the diarist's grandson 100 years later. Follow Alick as he moves from his last night on the farm in early 1916, through enshipment and training, then off to the battle fields of... France and Belgium, occupied Germany and back home. His treasured diaries covered the tedium, the mud, the fear and sorrow, the discomfort, the periods of leave and the letters from those back home. See the war unfold through Alick's eyes and learn about his and his companions' attitudes to the army, to female company, to the enemy soldiers, to the hospitality provided by people under pressure, to the war itself. And after the drama and tragedy of war, comes the return home and the efforts required to make a living while remaining steadfastly silent about the traumas of those terrible years - an unseen fight that continued and affected generations to come.

            The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir

            Bolton's account starts with his long march to the West Wing as Trump and others woo him for the National Security job. The minute he lands, he has to deal with Syria's chemical attack on the city of Douma, and the crises after that never stop. As he says in the opening pages,... "If you don't like turmoil, uncertainty, and risk; all the while being constantly overwhelmed with information, decisions to be made, and sheer amount of work; and enlivened by international and domestic personality and ego conflicts beyond description, try something else." The conflicts, ego and otherwise, are all there-from the upheaval in Venezuela, to the erratic and manipulative moves of North Korea's Kim Jong Un. But so too is the story of a chaotic White House and of a President with his own set a rules. "The differences between this presidency and previous ones I had served were stunning," writes Bolton, who served Reagan, and George HW Bush and George W. Bush. His account makes that clear.

            In the summer of 1942, twenty-two year-old Franci Rabinek Epstein arrived at Terezin, a concentration camp and ghetto forty miles north of her home in Prague. It would be the beginning of her six-year journey through several camps during the Second World War, from Terezin to Ausc...hwitz-Birkenau, to forced labor in Hamburg and finally Bergen-Belsen. After the camp's liberation by the British in April 1945, she returned to Prague, a survivor. Franci was known in her group as the Prague seamstress. Hers is a story of ingenuity and endurance- she pretended to be an electrican to escape the Auschwitz selection, secretly fighting for the survival of her fellow inmates. Franci also gives voice to the darker side of women in war - rape and prostitiution - offering an insight into the resilience of people in an unknowable situation.
