The definitive study of one of the pivotal naval battles of the Great War. On January 24, 1915, a German naval force commanded by Admiral Franz von Hipper conducted a raid on British fishing fleets in the area of the Dogger Banks. The force was engaged by a British force, which had been alerted by a decoded radio intercept. The ensuing battle would prove to be the largest and longest surface engagement until the Battle of Jutland the following summer. While the Germans lost an armored cruiser with heavy loss of life and Hipper’s flagship was almost sunk, confusion in executing orders allowed the Germans to escape. The British considered the battle a victory; but the Germans had learned important lessons and they would be better prepared for the next encounter with the British fleet at Jutand. Tobias Philbin’s Battle of Dogger Bank provides a keen analytical description of the battle and its place in the naval history of World War I. “Tobias Philbin has written a very entertaining and informative book on the Battle of Dogger Bank. It will be enjoyed by a wide audience including naval historians, strategists, and those interested in how broader long-term decision-making determines the manner in which battles are fought, won and lost.” —The International Journal of Maritime History “The author’s research in British and German archives and knowledge of secondary sources produces a significant work on the war at sea.” —Stand-To “An interesting and stimulating book that is a useful contribution to the history of the First World War in the North Sea.” —The Mariner’s Mirror

Magic is a limited resource in Alsatia, where the friction between order and chaos is fraying the fabric of reality and forcing everyone to pick sides. Take Catalina Dewin, an aspiring mage who is confronted with a series of complex choices about which of her future selves she will become. When she accidentally pulls her long-lost brother through a hole in space and time, she gets kicked out of school and apprentices with the eccentric Archmage Kalron Castellan. At Kalron?s keep, Catalina meets a temperamental fire-wright, a failed paladin, a bookish illusionist and an undead knight. Together, this unlikely band of heroes faces off with Crystal Rose Villast, an influential wizard with opposing ideas about the nature of security, freedom and the purpose of power. As tensions escalate, Catalina and her friends face down brazen attacks from trolls, golem and a rogue mage during a wild adventure that spans barren desert, ancient burial grounds, desolate caves and the lawlessness of Tacabre, a town where everything is for sale. The race is on to beat Crystal in finding an enchanted key to protect the world ? or that just might unravel it all. Complete in itself, The Rivalry for Alsatia is the first of an epic seven-novel series where every decision matters, and nothing is quite what it seems.

Eine liebenswerte Giftmischerin Der Debütroman von Alan Bradley sorgte bereits vor Erscheinen für eine beispiellose Sensation: Er wurde mit dem renommiertesten Krimipreis der Welt ausgezeichnet, dem „Dagger Award“ – auf der Basis eines einzigen Kapitels! Die junge Flavia de Luce staunt nicht schlecht, als sie im ersten Morgenlicht eine Leiche im Garten entdeckt – ausgerechnet im Gurkenbeet! Jeder hält ihren Vater für den Mörder, denn Colonel de Luce hat sich noch tags zuvor mit dem Verblichenen gestritten. Nur ein einziger Mensch glaubt felsenfest an die Unschuld des Colonels – seine neunmalkluge Tochter Flavia. Schließlich ist der Ermordete vergiftet worden, und – ganz im Gegensatz zu Flavia, die eine begnadete Giftmischerin ist – ihr Vater hat nie Interesse an der Chemie des Todes gezeigt. Also fragt Flavia in vermeintlich kindlicher Unschuld sämtlichen Zeugen Löcher in den Bauch. Hartnäckig folgt sie jeder noch so abwegigen Spur – bis sie einsehen muss, dass ihr Vater tatsächlich ein dunkles Geheimnis hütet. Und so befürchtet Flavia, dass sie vielleicht eine zu gute Detektivin ist ... Gewitzt, ironisch und unwiderstehlich liebenswert – Flavia de Luce ist eine Ermittlerin, wie sie die Welt noch nicht gesehen hat!
