Last Stand at Megiddo Book Description :

The New World Order: it's not a conspiracy, it's a direction. Author Cliff Billings brings your biblical worldview into sharp focus. Read along as he systematically identifies the key players of the Apocalypse and nails the satanic lie of global warming in his thrilling book, Last Stand at Megiddo. You will see clearly how God will dismantle Satan's very flawed, end-time strategy for world dominance. You will learn what the Bible says about the Church and Israel and the tragedies that await the uninformed and unconcerned. It's obvious that the world we thought we knew is fast changing. End-time wars, famines, earthquakes, and persecution are now commonplace. We stand uncomfortably close to the edge of global chaos. We can't back up, we can't make it ...

The American Counter Revolution in Favor of Liberty Book Description :

This book presents the case that the origins of American liberty should not be sought in the constitutional-reformist feats of its “statesmen” during the 1780s, but rather in the political and social resistance to their efforts. There were two revolutions occurring in the late 18th century America: the modern European revolution “in favour of government,” pursuing national unity, “energetic” government and centralization of power (what scholars usually dub “American founding”); and a conservative, reactionary counter-revolution “in favour of liberty,” defending local rights and liberal individualism against the encroaching political authority. This is a book about this liberal counter-revolution and its ideological, political and ...

The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors Book Description :

“This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can.” With these words, Lieutenant Commander Robert W. Copeland addressed the crew of the destroyer escort USS Samuel B. Roberts on the morning of October 25, 1944, off the Philippine Island of Samar. On the horizon loomed the mightiest ships of the Japanese navy, a massive fleet that represented the last hope of a staggering empire. All that stood between it and Douglas MacArthur’ s vulnerable invasion force were the Roberts and the other small ships of a tiny American flotilla poised to charge into history. In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers, James D. Hornfischer paints an unprecedented portr...
