The Bridge at Andau is James A. Michener at his most gripping. His classic nonfiction account of a doomed uprising is as searing and unforgettable as any of his bestselling novels. For five brief, glorious days in the autumn of 1956, the Hungarian revolution gave its people a glimpse at a different kind of future--until, at four o'clock in the morning on a Sunday in November, the citizens of Budapest awoke to the shattering sound of Russian tanks ravaging their streets. The revolution was over. But freedom beckoned in the form of a small footbridge at Andau, on the Austrian border. By an accident of history it became, for a few harrowing weeks, one of the most important crossings in the world, as the soul of a nation fled across its unsteady planks. Praise for The Bridge at Andau "Precise, vivid . . . immeasurably stirring."--The Atlantic Monthly "Dramatic, chilling, enraging."--San Francisco Chronicle "Superb."--Kirkus Reviews "Highly recommended reading."--Library JournalFrom the Paperback edition.
In his desperate attempt to blow up the bridge at Dong Ha and keep some 30,000 men and 200 tanks at bay, Ripley endured three hours of direct fire to rig some 500 pounds of explosives. Such a story of raw courage and personal resolve is rarely encountered.
Bridge is hip for everyone nowadays! Played in more than 100 countries, Bridge has an enthusiastic following of more than 60 million people. Although many believe that bridge is simply an "old person's game," more and more young people are taking it up, and now players in their twenties are beginning to win world championship titles. Completely updated and revised by champion bridge player Ron Klinger, Bridge Basics explains and illustrates the basic rules of bidding, play, and defense in contract bridge. This book will turn you into a competent and confident bridge player in no time.
