READING: “The greatest World War II story never told” (Esquire)—the perfect gift for history buffs. On January 28, 1945, 121 hand-selected U.S. troops slipped behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Their mission: March thirty rugged miles to rescue 513 POWs languishing in a hellish camp, among them the last survivors of the infamous Bataan Death March. A recent prison massacre by Japanese soldiers elsewhere in the Philippines made the stakes impossibly high and left little time to plan the complex operation. In Ghost Soldiers Hampton Sides vividly re-creates this daring raid, offering a minute-by-minute narration that unfolds alongside intimate portraits of the prisoners and their lives in the camp. Sides shows how the POWs banded together to survive, defying the Japanese authorities even as they endured starvation, tropical diseases, and torture. Harrowing, poignant, and inspiring, Ghost Soldiers is the mesmerizing story of a remarkable mission. It is also a testament to the human spirit, an account of enormous bravery and self-sacrifice amid the most trying conditions.

READING: Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Tate returns with his fifteenth book of poetry, an exciting new collection that offers nearly one hundred fresh and thought-provoking pieces that embody Tate's trademark style and voice: his accessibility, his dark humor, and his exquisite sense of the absurd. Tate's work is stark—he writes in clear, everyday language—yet his seemingly simple and macabre stories are layered with broad and trenchant meaning. His characters are often lost or confused, his settings bizarre, his scenarios brilliantly surreal. Opaque, inscrutable people float through a dreamlike world where nothing is as it seems. The Ghost Soldiers offers resounding proof, once again, that Tate stands alone in American poetry.

READING: My father would always read to me or tell me stories from a picture book so one day when I was young I asked him to draw me a picture and tell me a war story. I enlisted in the military because these terrible men were trying to hurt my friends and family. They would make them walk on long marches then lock them up like caged animals. They would lock up everyone in their family even the little girls. Being one of the best hunters I was selected to serve on a team with men from other countries and travel all around the world helping free these people. One time we were dropped off in a little rubber boat to paddle our way to an island during the biggest storm ever. The wind and rain were blowing and the waves made it almost impossible to stay inside the boat. We went in to hunt down the bad guys like Daniel Boone or David Crocket. We were the unknown men with no faces or name tags that silently moved through the night being known for civil war tactics as the advance unit of Ghost Soldiers. We had to live off of the land eating whatever we could find like berries, fruit, or hunting the animals. We would throw hand grenades into the water that would bring up the snakes, alligators, fish or whatever was living in the water. The islands were the most beautiful places in the world with all the green plants and the most beautiful flowers and colored birds. We freed the people that were taken prisoner and one camp there was a beautiful young girl by the name of Virginia and she is the person I named you after. The dream of someday having a daughter of my own that I could love and protect gave me the willpower needed in combat.

READING: From Hampton Sides’s Ghost Soldiers, a gripping narrative of World War II POWs on the brink of freedom. The men of Cabanatuan had been held by the Japanese since the Bataan Death March, in increasingly dire circumstances. With the war turning in the Americans’ favor, the POWs worried that their captors would murder them all in the frenzy of an all-out withdrawal. Then one day in early January, 1945, the prison guards simply left. For a brief moment the haggard survivors of Cabanatuan were given the keys to their prison, though swift death was promised to anyone who dared leave. The prisoners waited nervously, all while (unbeknownst to them) a daring raid was being planned which would result in their rescue or their end. This is Hampton Sides at his most riveting, a fitting tribute to these soldiers who would be prisoners no more. An eBook short.

READING: Gaius Julius Caesar is zonder enige twijfel de beroemdste Romein die ooit heeft geleefd. Als politicus klom Caesar in korte tijd op naar de machtigste positie in de Republiek. Hij had affaires met vrouwen van zijn opponenten en met vele andere vrouwen, inclusief de mooie en raadselachtige Cleopatra. Als militair was hij geniaal, en verantwoordelijk voor een aantal van demeest spectaculaire overwinningen in de geschiedenis: in minder dan tien jaar veroverde hij heel Gallië, viel Duitsland binnen en zette twee keer voet op Britse bodem. Classicus Adrian Goldsworthy schetst op basis van bronnen uit de Romeinse tijd het leven van Caesar tegen de achtergrond van de mediterrane wereld waarin hij leefde en van de rijke maar turbulente samenleving die hem voortbracht. Het resultaat is een meesterlijk boek, dat alle aspecten van Caesars persoon de politicus, de generaal en de mens in één band bijeenbrengt.

READING: Lange tijd werd gedacht dat een anti-islamfilm tot spontane rellen had geleid, die uitliepen op een kleine opstand waarbij de ambassadeur van de Verenigde Staten in Libië om het leven kwam. In 13 Hours beschrijft New York Times-bestsellerauteur Mitchell Zuckoff voor de eerste keer wat er in de nacht van 11 september 2012 écht gebeurde: hoe een handvol mannen zichzelf geconfronteerd zag met een georganiseerde groep terroristen die doelgericht de ambassade aanvielen. 13 Hours is verfilmd door Michael Bay met onder ander John Krasinksi en James Badge Dale. Op 11 september 2012 vielen terroristen het US State Department Special Mission Compound in Libië aan, in de stad Benghazi. Ook het geheime CIA-hoofdkwartier kwam onder vuur te liggen, waarop een team van zes ex-militairen, ingehuurd om de veiligheid van de Amerikaanse ambassadeur en burgers te waarborgen, een moeilijke beslissing moest nemen: zich overgeven of vechten tegen een enorme overmacht. In een tijdsbestek van 13 uur gaven zij blijk van een uitzonderlijke moed en dapperheid, om een grotere tragedie te voorkomen. 13 Hours is het aangrijpende, waargebeurde verhaal van zes dappere mannen die tegenover een enorme overmacht kwamen te staan in Benghazi en weigerden zich over te geven.
