Panther on the Prowl

by Nancy Morse

The rugged Native American loner knew the stakes were high, for his sorrow stalked him like the powerful panther that had once killed his bride.

The American diet is all too often a mishmash of pre-made, mass-produced foods which are expensive, high in calories, and low in nutrients.

Panzer Divisions 1944-45

by Pier Battistelli

The period 1944-45 was one of change for the Panzer Divisions. In summer 1944 the new-type Panzer Division was introduced with a reduction in the number of tanks, a change that was mainly seen in North-West Europe. On the Eastern Front, where the bulk of the Panzer Divisions were still employed, the organizational changes were introduced only slowly, mainly during periods of rest and refit. In 1945 the division was again reorganized with a reduced strength to reflect the deteriorating German manufacturing capability and to incorporate news weapons such as the Panther (Mark V).This volume provides a detailed examination on the late-war changes to the German Army Panzer forces and the formation of new units, from the collapse on the Eastern Front, through operations on the Western Front in Normandy and the Ardennes, to the final battle for Berlin in 1945. The major organizational changes that took place in this intensive period are examined, together with the adaptation of German armored doctrine, tactics, and the command system. Details of unit histories and operations, illustrated in color maps, are also provided in this packed treatment.

Panzer Divisions: The Blitzkrieg Years 1939-40

by Pier Battistelli

At the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, Germany's armored forces - the Panzerwaffe - were still in their infancy. The restrictions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles meant that German tank development had to be conducted in secret. Initial armor campaigns in Poland were not completely successful and changes were needed before the invasion of France.This book examines the organizational changes, developments in doctrine and tactics, and improved command and control that provided the basis for the spectacular success of the Panzer divisions in 1940. Although the Panzerwaffe was still largely inferior to its enemies in terms of both tank numbers and quality, it effectively adapted and developed those doctrines and principles of warfare that had shaped German fighting since the 19th century. Achieving tactical and operational surprise, the Panzer divisions succeeded in breaking through enemy defences in the Ardennes and enveloping a large number of hostile forces at Dunkirk. The legend of the Blitzkrieg was born.

Panzer Divisions: The Eastern Front 1941-43

by Pier Battistelli

On June 22, 1941 when Germany attacked the Soviet Union, her Panzer divisions were to play a major role in this titanic struggle. At its peak, 19 out of the 21 existing Panzer Divisions were deployed against the Soviets. Although overwhelmed by Soviet numbers, the superior skill and capability of the German Panzer divisions meant that in three months the Germans, with the Panzers as their spearhead had advanced deep into Soviet territory, inflicting terrible losses on the Soviets. However, after these initial successes the German offensive began to falter, culminating in the disastrous defeat at Kursk.In this book, the organizational history of the Panzer divisions is covered, from the early successes of 1941 through to the dramatic re-organization of the Panzer Divisions and the introduction of revised Blitzkrieg tactics as the war began to turn and the Panzer divisions experienced their first taste of defeat. Pier Paolo Battistellii examines the impact of the introduction of the Panther tank shortly before the final failure at Kursk, and goes on to explain the evolution of German armored doctrine, tactics and the command system, providing a detailed overview of the major combat actions of the Panzer Divisions on the Eastern Front.

Panzer II vs 7TP

by Richard Chasemore David Higgins

Hitler's lightning invasion of Poland in 1939 was the real beginning of World War II in Europe. This was the period when armored warfare inscribed itself into global consciousness as the Poles desperately sought to stave off the Blitzkrieg. At the heart of the fighting on the ground, large numbers of Nazi Germany's PzKpfw II battled against Poland's better-armed but much less numerous 7TP tank. The two types both possessed unique strengths and weaknesses - the PzKpfw II was blessed with radio which the 7TP was not, which proved critical for command and control purposes in the heat of combat. But the German tank was blighted by thin armor, which could not withstand Polish gunfire at combat ranges. This fully illustrated, detailed work evaluates these strengths and weaknesses, comparing opponents and exploring the clashes between these armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) in the context of the invasion of Poland.

Panzer Operations: The Eastern Front Memoir of General Raus, 1941-1945

by Erhard Raus

German general Erhard Raus was one of the most talented commanders to fight on the Eastern Front in Russia, where he was eventually appointed to army group command in early 1945.<P><P> By the time the war ended, Raus had established a reputation as one of the German army's foremost tacticians of armored warfare, which made him a prized capture by U. S. Army intelligence. In American captivity, Raus wrote a detailed memoir of his service in Russia. His battlefield experience and keen tactical eye makes his memoir especially valuable. The Raus memoir-now translated, compiled, and edited by prominent World War II historian Steven H. Newton-covers the Russian campaign from the first day of the war to his being relieved of his command at Hitler's order in the spring of 1945. It includes a detailed examination of Raus's 6th Panzer Division's drive to Leningrad, his experiences in the Soviet winter counteroffensive around Moscow, the unsuccessful attempt to relieve Stalingrad and the final desperate battles inside Germany at the end of the war.

Papa Francisco

by The Wall Street Journal

Em 13 de março, os cardeais da Igreja Católica, reunidos para eleger um sucessor de um Papa ainda vivo pela primeira vez em 600 anos, anunciaram uma mudança dramática. Ao eleger o cardeal Jorge Mario Bergoglio da Argentina como Papa Francisco 266°, os cardeais nomeavam o primeiro Papa do emergente Novo Mundo em toda história, para assumir a liderança da Igreja em um momento crucial. Esta foi uma mudança impressionante feita por uma instituição de 2000 anos de idade que tem imensa influência -- com 1.2 bilhões de seguidores em todo mundo -- e enormes problemas, incluindo um escândalo de abuso sexual que perdura por uma década e abalou a fé na instituição, escassez de padres e tendências seculares, que fizeram a Igreja perder membros e colocaram à prova sua relevância em um mundo em transformação. Desde a surpreendente decisão do Papa Bento XVI de se aposentar, até a apresentação do Papa Francisco, das tranquilas ruas de bairro de Buenos Aires até a primeira fila da praça de São Pedro, os repórteres do Wall Street Journal registraram essas dramáticas semanas na vida da mais antiga instituição do mundo. Agora, em um novo e-book, os repórteres do Journal irão apresentar uma biografia detalhada, original e oportuna do novo Papa Francisco, bem como novas visões das negociações e do drama que cercaram sua acensão. Papa Francisco irá apresentar a história completa e aprofundada da mudança de direção da Igreja e do homem encarregado de liderá-la, e analisar como o Papa Francisco poderá lidar com anos de escândalo e deficiência, enquanto lidera os católicos de todo o mundo em direção a uma fé mais profunda. The Wall Street Journal é o maior jornal dos Estados Unidos, considerando a circulação média total, com quase 2.3 milhões de assinantes e 36 milhões de visitantes digitais de todo o mundo por mês. Nos últimos anos, o Journal expandiu o seu conteúdo central para incluir a cobertura de arte, cultura, estilo de vida, esportes e saúde, tendo como base sua tradição como fonte principal de notícias financeiras e de negócios. Como uma das maiores operações de captação de notícias do mundo com 2.000 jornalistas em mais de 50 países, a franquia Journal abrange atualmente oito edições em 11 línguas, envolvendo leitores através de jornais, websites, revistas, mídia social e vídeos. O Journal detém 34 prêmios Pulitzer pela sua excelência em jornalismo.

Papá, mamá, ¡dejadme tiempo para mi!

by Etty Buzyn

En la actualidad, los niños están sometidos a una estimulación intensa, un exceso de información y una avalancha de actividades extraescolares. Esta sobrecarga, que tiene por objetivo convertirlos en adultos extremadamente capaces, se traduce en una falta de iniciativa para soñar e inventar. Sin embargo, es esencial que los niños disfruten de momentos de ocio, pues estos les ayudan a expresar sus deseos y estimulan su creatividad. * ¿Por qué es tan necesario el juego? * ¿En qué sentido es constructiva la inactividad? * ¿Cómo benefician al niño los momentos de «aburrimiento»? * ¿Qué lugar deben ocupar la televisión y los videojuegos en su tiempo libre? * ¿Hasta qué punto deben tener libertad para elegir sus aficiones? Etty Buzyn, psicóloga clínica y psicoterapeuta, expone las razones por las que el exceso de actividad merma la riqueza de la imaginación, que es determinante para «la creatividad y, por lo tanto, para la adaptación y la innovación». Por ello, los niños deben disponer de tiempo libre para soñar y, así, el día de mañana no verse tentados a quedarse al margen de la sociedad ni convertirse en adultos que se sientan atados por las normas.
