The good news about endgames is: there are relatively few endings you should know by heart once you know these endings, that´s it. Your knowledge never goes out of date! The bad news is that, all the same, the endgame technique of most players is deficient. Modern time-controls make matters worse: there is simply not enough time to delve deep into the position. Jesus de la Vila debunks the myth that endgame theory is complex and he teaches you to steer the game into a position you are familiar with. This book contains only those endgames that: show up most frequently are easy to learn contain ideas that are useful in more difficult positions. Your performance will improve dramatically because this book brings you: simple rules detailed and lively explanations many diagrams clear summaries of the most important themes dozens of tests.

Eagerly anticipated in the wake of their national best seller Cobra II (´´The superb, must-read military history of the invasion of Iraq´´ - Thomas L. Friedman), The Endgame is Michael R. Gordon and General Bernard E. Trainor´s most ambitious and news-breaking book to date. A peerless work of investigative journalism and historical recreation ranging from 2003 to 2012, it gives us the first comprehensive, inside account of arguably the most widely reported yet least understood war in American history - from the occupation of Iraq to the withdrawal of American troops. Prodigiously researched, The Endgame is not only based on an abundance of highly classified, still-secret government documents but is also brilliantly informed by access to key figures in the White House, the military, the State and Defense departments, and the intelligence community. Most strikingly, it is also informed by extensive interviews with both Sunni and Shiite leaders, key Kurdish politicians, tribal sheikhs, former insurgents, Sadrists, and senior Iraqi military officers, whose insights about critical turning points and previously unknown decisions made during the war have heretofore been conspicuously missing from the media´s coverage of it. The Endgame is riveting as a blow-by-blow chronicle of the fighting. It is also relentlessly revealing, as it deftly pieces together the puzzle of the prosecution of American, Iraqi, and Iranian objectives, and the diplomatic intrigue and political struggle within Iraq since the American invasion. 1.

The Galactic Alliance´s hard-won success in countering the Yuuzhan Vong onslaught has proven all too brief, and the tide has turned once more to the invaders´ advantage. Having overcome the sabotage strategies of the Jedi and their allies, the marauding aliens have pushed deeper into the galaxy and subjugated more worlds in their ruthless quest for domination. Coruscant has been remade into a Yuuzhan Vong stronghold. The remnants of the resistance are struggling to form a united front. Luke, Mara, and Jacen are missing in action. Clearly, the stage is set for an endgame. Now, as Han and Leia receive the chilling news that hundreds of high-ranking Galactic Alliance prisoners face slaughter in a sacrifice to the enemy´s bloodthirsty gods, Luke and his team try desperately to convince the living world of Zonama Sekot to join the Jedi´s final campaign against the Yuuzhan Vong. Yet even as they speak, a lone space station is all that stands between Alliance headquarters on Mon Calamari and wave after wave of ferocious enemy forces waging their most decisive assault. At the same time, the Jedi´s alliances throughout the galaxy are being tested, and the chances of victory jeopardized, by rogue factions determined to deploy the lethal weapon that will exterminate the Yuuzhan Vong and perhaps countless other species. And among the Yuuzhan Vong themselves, the threat of revolt has reached a boiling point, as the oppressed underclass and powerful officials alike fear their Supreme Overlord´s mad actions will provoke the wrath of the gods. Ultimately, for both the forces of invasion and resistance, too much has been sacrificed, and too much is at stake, to ever turn back. And now, nothing can stand in the way of seizing victory or facing annihilation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis.

When Lt. Commander Max DuMonde, a US Navy test pilot recovering from injuries on a hospital ship, receives a strange parcel addressed to him from Paris, he doesn´t know what to think. Inside are an unmarked set of keys, a photo album, and, strangest of all, news that his father--previously thought KIA (killed in action) in Vietnam--has just died. With the package in hand and a lifetime´s worth of questions in need of answering, Max travels to Europe. But the closer he gets to unraveling the mystery of his family history, the more he becomes entangled in the endgame of an international plot known simply as Phoenix Project--a secret World War II experiment designed to bring back the purest evil known to man...the Third Reich. Reminiscent of the novels of Matthew Reilly, Phoenix Project is a high-octane action-adventure/sci-fi story that will keep the bodies piling and your blood pumping. 1. Language: English.
