Bracing for Impact: True Tales of Air Disasters and the People Who Survived Them by Robin Suerig Holleran, Lindy Philip
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6.4MB
Overview: "Provides real world insight to those that have experienced the life-threatening event of an airplane crash" (Les Abend, Boeing 777 captain and CNN Aviation Analyst).
Being strapped in the seat of a plane as it plunges into a nosedive midair is everyone’s worst nightmare. The two women who compiled Bracing for Impact know. They have both lived out that fear and survived, albeit badly hurt, in their own plane crashes.
In this collection of true-life survivor tales, people from all walks of life-a freelance writer, a crew member of the Lynyrd Skynyrd band, a naval flight surgeon, a teenager, and a newlywed on her honeymoon, among others-recount their traumatic narrow escapes as engines stalled, fuel ran out, hazardous weather conditions descended, and landings did not go according to plan. In the face of death, as life flashed before their eyes or not, as some wryly note these survivors encountered the terrific split of before and after the crash. Their lives, though preserved, would change forever.

Requirements: .PDF reader, 33.3 Mb
Overview: The Iran-Iraq War, which ended in the summer of 1988, a month short of its eighth anniversary, is undoubtedly the Third World’s longest and bloodiest conflict in a half-century. As such, its lessons and implications extend beyond the geographical confines of the Middle East. Bringing together Israeli, American and European specialists from the fields of Middle East history, international relations, strategy and economics, this book offers the first comprehensive post bellum analysis of the impact and implications of the Iran-Iraq war. The book starts with an examination of the war’s impact on the domestic and foreign affairs of the two belligerents, continues with a discussion of the political ramifications of the war in both the regional and the global spheres, and concludes by analysing the economic, military and strategic implications.
