« Le lundi 17 juillet 2017, dans la solitude de mon bureau, après mûre réflexion, je viens de prendre la décision de quitter ma fonction de chef d’État-major des armées. Cette démission, que rien n’annonçait quinze jours plus tôt, était devenue pour moi un devoir.
J’ai désormais une responsabilité, celle de dire la vérité sur les menaces auxquelles nous devons faire face et sur les défis de nos armées. Ainsi, les Français pourront mieux comprendre. …

The Jews Should Keep Quiet: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, and the Holocaust by Rafael Medoff
English | September 5th, 2019 | ISBN: 0827614705 | 408 pages | EPUB | 1.97 MB

Based on recently discovered documents, The Jews Should Keep Quiet reassesses the hows and whys behind the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration's fateful policies during the Holocaust. Rafael Medoff delves into difficult truths: With FDR's consent, the administration deliberately suppressed European immigration far below the limits set by U.S. law. His administration also refused to admit Jewish refugees to the U.S. Virgin Islands, dismissed proposals to use empty Liberty ships returning from Europe to carry refugees, and rejected pleas to drop bombs on the railways leading to Auschwitz, even while American planes were bombing targets only a few miles away—actions that would not have conflicted with the larger goal of winning the war.

Raising Hell: A Concise History of the Black Arts and Those Who Dared to Practice Them by Robert Masello
English | July 1st, 2014 | ISBN: 0399522387 | 260 pages | EPUB | 2.69 MB

If the history of black magic and the occult reveals anything, it's that the drive to marshal the unseen powers of the dark, and bend them to mortal will, is as old as mankind itself. Men and women have believed, in virtually every age and in every land, that there is another world—a world of spirits and souls, angels and demons, gods and monsters, a world that might hold the answers to all the great mysteries: What is life all about? Does man decide his own fate? Is there a Heaven? And, perhaps more important, is there a Hell?

Late in his life, former president Lyndon B. Johnson told a reporter that he didn't believe the Warren Commission's finding that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing President John F. Kennedy. Johnson thought Cuban president Fidel Castro was behind it. After all, Johnson said, Kennedy was running "a damned Murder, Inc., in the Caribbean," giving Castro reason to retaliate.

Medicine and the Seven Deadly Sins in Late Medieval Literature and Culture by Virginia Langum
English | PDF,EPUB | 2016 | 237 Pages | ISBN : 1137465581 | 3.14 MB

This book considers how scientists, theologians, priests, and poets approached the relationship of the human body and ethics in the later Middle Ages. Is medicine merely a metaphor for sin? Or can certain kinds of bodies physiologically dispose people to be angry, sad, or greedy? If so, then is it their fault? Virginia Langum offers an account of the medical imagery used to describe feelings and actions in religious and literary contexts, referencing a variety of behavioral discussions within medical contexts.
