Lord Jim

By: Lord Jim

Excerpt: When this novel first appeared in book form a notion got about that I had been bolted away with. Some reviewers maintained that the work starting as a short story had got beyond the writer?s control. One or two discovered internal evidence of the fact, which seemed to amuse them. They pointed out the limitations of the narrative form. They argued that no man could have been expected to talk all that time, and other men to listen so long. It was not, they said, v...

Air Warfare

By: Michael E. Ryan

Foreword: Since the Wright Brothers first flew at Kitty Hawk, the airplane has continually evolved as an instrument of military and national power. Today, the proper employment of aerospace power is essential for success on and over the modern battlefield. In many instances it will be the military power of choice. Future advances in stealth, precision, and lethality will make aerospace power increasingly more effective at all levels of warfare across the range of militar...

Works of Jules Verne

By: Charles F. Horne

Excerpt: JULES VERNE. He was the prophet, the foreseer and foreteller of our great mechanical age. He belongs to-day not to France, but to the world. Widely as his works have been read in his own country, their popularity has been yet wider in America and England. Much as he has been honored at home, even higher glory has been accorded him, we are told, in far Japan. His books have been translated not only into all the usual languages, but into Hebrew, Japanese, Polish a...

Works of Jules Verne

By: Charles F. Horne

Excerpt: Among so many effective and artistic tales, it is difficult to give a preference to one over all the rest. Yet, certainly, even amid Verne's remarkable works, his ?Off on a Comet must be given high rank. Perhaps this story will be remembered when even Round the World in Eighty Days and Michael Strogoff has been obliterated by centuries of time. 'At least, of the many books since written upon the same theme as Verne's, no one has yet succeeded in equaling or even...

In Search of the Castaways Or, The Children of Captain Grant

By: Jules Verne

THE three books gathered under the title In Search of the Castaways occupied much of Verne's attention during the three years following 1865. The characters used in these books were afterwards reintroduced in The Mysterious Island, which was in its turn a sequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Thus this entire set of books form a united series upon which Verne worked intermittently during ten years. In Search of the Castaways, which has also been published as T...

Air Warfare

By: Col. Wray R. Johnson

Educational Reference Publication

Introduction: In the iconography of early American airpower history, certain figures stand out: William Billy Mitchell, Henry H. Hap Arnold, and Carl A. Tooey Spaatz perhaps foremost. But lesser-known figures, some virtually forgotten today, had considerable influence on the development of airpower thought, doctrine, and organization. One of these men was William C. Sherman, the author of Air Warfare. Sherman was present when the foundations were laid and played a signif...
