Even a vampire has to face her inner demons . . . Kat Redding is the very thing she hunts: a vampire, thirsting for blood, capable of killing any creature unlucky enough to get in her path. The difference is, Kat kills her own kind in order to protect human Purebloods. She's good at what she does. Good enough to earn the nickname Lady Death-and the enmity of every bloodthirsty being around. But now a vampire Count is intent on merging his House with a werewolf cult to create a force of terrifying power. Kat can't allow that to happen. Even if it means taking on a den of weres and a vampire more ruthless than any she's encountered before. She has the weapons, the skill, and a few allies. But that may not be enough to eliminate the Count before her own dark nature rises to the surface-and costs her whatever is left of her humanity . . .

To Win the Battle tells the story of how the 1st Australian Division forged a reputation as one of the great fighting formations of the British Empire during World War One. In 1915 it led the way ashore on Gallipoli and in 1916 it achieved the first Australian victory on the Western Front at Pozières. Later it was still serving with distinction in the final battles that defeated the German army in 1918. It was central to the birth of the Anzac legend. This ground-breaking study describes and explains how the 1st Australian Division rose from obscurity and over three and a half years of hard and bloody campaigning earned a combat record second to none. Drawing extensively on primary sources as well as recent scholarship, this important book provides a fresh approach and a balanced assessment of the factors that led to the division's success.
