Doing Their Bit: The British Employment of Military and Civil Defence Dogs in the Second World War

Dog Carnivore Poster Dog breed Hat


The first in-depth study of the role of canines in WWII Britain, an “important but hitherto under-represented subject,” with photos included (Society of Army Historical Research).

The Second World War allowed for the use of an unprecedented number of dogs for military duties, both internationally and among the British Armed Forces. On the British Home Front, civilians responded to calls from the British Army’s War Dogs Training School and the Ministry of Aircraft Production Guard Dog Training School by donating their canine pets for military training and employment “for the duration.” As dogs were instructed in roles with the British Army, the Royal Air Force and the London Civil Defence Region, the distinction between pet and trained working animal became increasingly unclear. While civilians and servicemen alike continued to view military dogs as pets, many also saw trained canines as human-like soldiers “doing their bit,” a depiction promulgated by both the military and the wartime press. Yet, historians have paid little attention to the subject.

In the first comprehensive scholarly account of the employment of British military and Civil Defence dogs in the Second World War, Kimberly Brice O’Donnell traces the story from the belated establishment of the short-lived War Dog School and the Messenger Dog Service of the First World War to the more recent employment of canines in Iraq and Afghanistan. With a focus on WWII, Doing their Bit examines why and how dogs were trained and employed, and how humans shaped and perceived their use.

Using archival material, O’Donnell analyzes the performance of guard, military police, patrol, mine detection, and rescue dogs in training and on operations by considering the advantages and disadvantages of canines in such roles. Military and Civil Defence dogs offered a number of advantages over humans and technological equipment, and the experience gained by dog trainers and handlers led to the continued employment of canines in the postwar period. While the use of horses and other animals has since diminished, World War II marked a turning point in the history of the British military dog, ushering in the seemingly permanent training of dogs for police and military roles.

Solitude: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller (Dimension Space Book One)

Product Liquid Font Poster Alcoholic beverage


A Global Rift in Space-Time. All Living Beings Gone Save Two Humans. An Impossible Rescue Mission.
★ Winner Listeners Choice Award—Best Science Fiction ★


The Martian meets Gravity when Army Pilot Vaughn Singleton, Earth’s last man, rushes to Area 51 in search of a spaceplane after he discovers the last woman is stranded on the International Space Station and barely alive—thus beginning a race against time. The event that wiped life from the planet started at the supercollider. It created a rift in space-time. The astronaut stranded aboard the space station, Commander Angela Brown, is a theoretical physicist who used to work at the collider. She may be able to reverse the event, restoring the timeline and returning all life to the planet … if only she could get there. If you like action-packed, page-turning novels, you'll love the electrifying action in this trilogy of award-winning thrillers.

Army aviator Vaughn Singleton takes part in a NASA experiment in a last-ditch attempt to reignite his failing military career, but when he emerges from the experimental vacuum chamber, he soon discovers he is the last human left on Earth, a position for which he is emotionally ill-equipped.

Stranded alone on the ISS, Commander Angela Brown watched a wave of light sweep across the planet. Over the following weeks and months, Angela struggles to contact someone on the surface as she fights to survive aboard a deteriorating space station. Then, from orbit above Central Europe, Angela glimpses the dark underpinnings of humanity's demise. It appears something went horribly wrong with a physics experiment at the supercollider in Geneva, Switzerland. As a theoretical physicist, Angela might be able to unravel and maybe even reverse the events that led to the apocalypse...if only she could get there.

Can Vaughn find a path to space and back? Can Angela—the only person capable of reversing humanity's disappearance—survive until he does?

Battle for Earth: Journal One (Shockwave Book 1)

Natural environment Poster Flash photography Font Sky


Battle for Earth is an imaginative mix of Sci-fi and Fantasy with plenty of action. Earth has been invaded by alien monsters.

A nightmare alien invader. An oddball special operation team with whom you will fall in love. A rousing adventure full of twists and turns. Come explore the worlds of Hammer Trollkin in the Shockwave series.

The world was in crisis even before the invasion. Pressure from within, pressure from without; civil wars and the clash of entire civilizations.

Then the aliens invaded and changed everything. And some of the changes were for the good.

The force behind the invasion has overwhelming technological superiority. But we are an unusual people, practiced in the art of war. Humanity even holds a few technological advantages of our own.

One such advantage is a special forces team with the squad name, Shockwave. In destroying a DARPA lab, the enemy introduced an unintended consequence, a fighting force with unusual capabilities.

But, even if Earth prevails over the invading monsters, something worse is coming.

Join Shockwave on the exciting, twisting road that leads to interstellar war.

Meet the team. Viz and Para are the sister heroes of the invasion. Rock and Roll are twin brothers you definitely want on your side. Mr. T is the mostly mature leader of the bunch. There’s Muncle, one very smart monkey. And Communal is the Artificial Intelligence who always keeps a data node on the team.

Sky World Flash photography Cloud Happy


Shockwave: Empire is action-packed Science Fiction with a hint of Fantasy.


Humanity barely made it through the first alien invasion. Now the devil is coming for us in the form of an armada strike group comprised of their best warships.

It has been seven years since humanity defeated the first wave of invaders. Time is running out for the people of Earth as we prepare to meet the vengeful invaders head on. But, do we stand a chance again an empire that has been conquering worlds for thousands of years? Perhaps.

We are an amazing people, practiced in the art of war. The first invasion united us as never before, and brought all sorts of technological wonders for us to reverse engineer. Sad for our enemy, an unintended consequence of their evil actions also forged Shockwave.

Join the team on this cosmic adventure as humanity screams toward interstellar war.

Quantum physics comes of age in this epic series that starts on Earth but ends up in the farthest reaches of space and beyond.

Invasion: Journal Three (Shockwave Book 3)

World Movie Poster Cg artwork Electric blue


Shockwave: Invasion is imaginative Sci-fi adventure with plenty of action, as the people of Earth are forced into interstellar war with an ancient galactic empire.

It has been 10 years since the first alien invasion. We thought they were the monsters rather than merely a preview of what was to come. The real monsters showed up a few years later.

It's a wonder we're still here. Reverse engineering all that advanced alien equipment opened whole new branches of science. That alien tech leap, together with our own achievements, gave us the means to travel between stars, and produce weapons of war to rival our enemy. Just as important, the first invasion united us as one people, with a noble purpose. And we have had enough!

It’s time to do some invading of our own and cut off the head of the snake. Or die trying.

Shockwave is a special forces team with unique capabilities; the tip of the spear in the escalating conflict that is moving toward a galactic scale.

Sad for us, the evidence is mounting that this present evil empire is only one more layer in a universe filled with dark powers intent on our destruction.

For those who might enjoy some spiritual content, there is a round of theological contemplation at the end of the book, in the interlude section, titled Songs of the King. Where might aliens fit in, within the concept of an immense fallen universe? That serpent-thing in the Garden came from somewhere. The section has a Christian basis immersed in a decidedly Sci-fi frame of reference.

Nice Try: Stories of Best Intentions and Mixed Results

Forehead Glasses Facial expression Vision care Dress shirt


“If you only read one book in your life, it probably shouldn’t be this one. However, if you’re not operating an inexplicable one-book policy, these stories are funny, touching, and more than worth your time.” — John Oliver

“Josh Gondelman is one of the most original hilarious voices out there today. This book will hook you and make you laugh and laugh.” — Amy Schumer

Emmy-Award winning writer and comedian Josh Gondelman’s collection of personal stories of best intentions and mixed results.


Josh Gondelman knows a thing or two about trying—and failing. The Emmy Award-winning stand-up comic—dubbed a “pathological sweetheart” by the New York Observer—is known throughout the industry as one of comedy’s true “nice guys.” Not surprisingly, he’s endured his share of last-place finishes. But he keeps on bouncing back.

In this collection of hilarious and poignant essays (including his acclaimed New York Times piece “What if I Bombed at My Own Wedding?”), Josh celebrates a life of good intentions—and mixed results. His true tales of romantic calamities, professional misfortunes, and eventual triumphs reinforce the notion: we get out of the world what we put into it. Whether he’s adopting a dog from a suspicious stranger, mitigating a disastrous road trip, or trying MDMA for the first (and only) time, Josh only wants the best for everyone—even as his attempts to do the right thing occasionally implode.

Full of the warm and relatable humor that’s made him a favorite on the comedy club circuit, Nice Try solidifies Josh Gondelman’s reputation as not just a good guy, but a skilled observer of the human condition.

Doom with a View (A Merry Ghost Inn Mystery Book 2)

World Publication Font Book Sky


When a guest mysteriously dies at the Merry Ghost Inn, Melanie and her grandmother fear that their professional reputations—and their lives—are on the line

With the arrival of six senior reading group members at the Merry Ghost Inn, the long-awaited Grand Opening week has finally begun for Melanie West and her grandmother, Liza. All is well with the Oregon coast-side B&B until Melanie’s dog, Max, finds the dead body of one of their guests.

Everyone at the inn immediately falls under suspicion, including the innkeepers themselves. Melanie and Liza are not sure who they can trust, and the idea of cohabitating with a murderer is enough to send chills down anyone’s spine. To make matters worse, the curmudgeonly town detective wants them to steer clear of the investigation, but doesn’t seem too inspired to solve the case in a timely fashion himself. To clear their own names and to avoid the blight on the inn’s reputation that yet another dead body will bring, Melanie and Liza dive headlong into the murder investigation.

With a little help from their chuckling ghost, Melanie and Liza dodge the detective, tip-toe around their suspicious guests, and still serve up delicious Bed & Breakfast meals on time in Kate Kingsbury’s delightful second Merry Ghost Inn mystery, Doom with a View.

The Killings at Badger's Drift (Inspector Barnaby Mysteries Book 1)

Tableware Drinkware Dishware Serveware Recipe


A quaint English village is home to a murderer in the Macavity Award-wining mystery series debut that launched the British crime drama Midsomer Murders.

Badger’s Drift is the ideal English village, complete with vicar, bumbling local doctor, and kindly spinster. But when the spinster dies suddenly, her best friend kicks up a fuss loud enough to attract the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby. And when Barnaby and his eager-beaver deputy start poking around, they uncover a swamp of ugly scandals and long-suppressed resentments seething below the picture-postcard prettiness.

In the grand English tradition of the quietly intelligent copper, Barnaby has both an irresistibly dry sense of humor and a keen insight into what makes people tick. The Killings at Badger’s Drift marks Inspector Barnaby’s debut, and offers ample proof that Caroline Graham may indeed be “simply the best detective writer since Agatha Christie” (Sunday Times of London).

CSI Reilly Steel Box Set #2: Three unputdownable crime fiction reads

Book Publication Art Font Aqua


Three novels in the million-selling USA Today bestselling mystery series.
This omnibus edition includes Books 4, 5 and the prequel of the CSI Reilly Steel police procedural series.

THE WATCHED
Quantico-trained forensic investigator Reilly Steel is back in the country of her birth. Unsure about both her future and her position within the Dublin police force, she hopes that a relaxing stay at the Florida beach home of her old FBI mentor Daniel Forrest will help get her thoughts together.
When Daniel's policeman son, Todd is called to the scene of a gruesome murder, he is stopped in his tracks. Not just because of the grotesque and theatrical nature of the crime but because he recognizes the victim as Daniel's goddaughter.

In an attempt to find swift resolution on her old friend's behalf, Reilly finds herself drawn into the investigation. And when another disturbing murder occurs soon after, she can't help but feel that she has come across something like this before. But where?

ONE LITTLE MISTAKE
Back at the helm of the Garda Forensic Unit after a short hiatus in the US, Reilly Steel is thrust straight into a series of complicated Dublin murders at which the killer leaves minuscule forensic trace evidence.
The investigating team discover that the victims have been targeted because of one worryingly common trait, and need to outsmart the killer before he makes his next move.
But Reilly is preoccupied, not only by new developments in a decades old missing person case, but also her own feelings of disconnect since her return from the US ... Can she get back on top of her game to track down the killer in time?

CRIME SCENE - QUANTICO
Forty miles south of Washington, D.C. lies the small town of Quantico. Situated among lush greenery, the 547 acre property is where FBI recruits run obstacle courses, engage in firearms training and participate in mock hostage scenarios in Hogan’s Alley.
It's the world budding forensic investigator Reilly Steel was born for.
During her first student semester at the Academy, a fatal accident occurs at a student party off-campus, and a fellow recruit is under suspicion. But by the behavior of the other students and the forensic evidence at the crime scene, Reilly guesses that there is more to the story than meets the eye.
Will her instincts, and everything she's learnt at Quantico so far help Reilly uncover the truth behind the victim's death?

The Earthborn Box Set: Books 1-3

Publication Font Electric blue Electronic device Technology


Earthborn don’t mess around.

Blake Brown and crew set out on missions to deal with an unknown threat that seems to grow bigger the more they investigate. From the ecumenpolis of Zakara Prime to rimworlds, Blake and crew will need to adapt to evolving situations.
This box set contains the first, second, and third books in the Earthborn series. If you like science fiction, technology, and gritty space opera adventures, then this series is for you

Earthborn—Book 1 of the Earthborn

Don’t discount those from Earth

Two years of freelancing in the galactic bounty system has taken its toll on Blake Brown, a four-hundred-plus-year-old vampire exiled from Earth. Along with his partner in crime, Seth Williams, Blake decides to call it quits. However, a new opportunity arises, one that comes from the highest authority of Fredoria, the home world of human refugees that were abducted from Earth.
Forming a team to rise to this new challenge is one hurdle. Figuring out how to capture and retrieve Delkis, a known criminal, is another. To make matters worse, Delkis has a powerful crime syndicate backing him.
Blake and crew will show the galactic community what an Earthborn team can do when given the resources to do it.

Biogenesis—Book 2 of the Earthborn

There is always something scarier out there

After a successful first mission and a month off, Blake Brown and crew head out on a new mission to the remote Zolidack system. A classified research facility has been sighted with the presence of illegal cargo that relates to what they found on their previous mission.
The problem is the system is controlled by the Fredorian Defense Force, a group who dislikes Earthborn of any stripe. The facility is operated by the Dorostatic Initiatives Corporation, which is recovering from a genetic engineering scandal and hates any government intrusion, Earthborn or not.
Getting to the facility is one challenge. Dealing with a new crew problem while doing it is another. To make matters worse, brutal, bug-like Rogundan mercenary slavers have been spotted in the system.
Blake and crew will do all they can to investigate the facility while navigating both internal and external threats. If there’s one thing Earthborn can do well, it’s adapt, and Blake and crew will show everyone how it’s done.

Rimworlds—Book 3 of the Earthborn

Never assume Earthborn are easy prey.

Citizens of rim world cities have gone missing, and no one knows why. Blake and his crew are assigned to discover what is going on and who is behind the disappearances. Like previous missions, this will lead them to dangerous locations as they gather information and encounter new allies and enemies.
The Saskarin threat has escalated since Blake and the crew’s second mission at Hadrassus and the bounties on each crew member have gone up significantly.
Blake and his crew must navigate those dangers while trying to not only find the missing citizens but also to stop whoever is abducting them. Being Earthborn is not easy, and Blake and his crew will show what happens when you mess with them.
