Rush To Glory

by Robert Hecker, Rush To Glory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rush To Glory books, Europe in Flames. A B-17 bombardier must choose fear or duty, hate or love. RUSH TO GLORY lays open the lives of two rival brothers, Hal and Luke Bailey, opposites in every way, Hal, determined to do his duty for his country, enlists in the Air Corp, is trained as a bombardier, and finds himself assigned to his older brother's command in England. Luke, worried that Hal will somehow diminish his rise to the top, takes a tough stance with Hal and places him at the mercy of not only the German war machine but also at the mercy of his comrades-in-arms. Hal's situation becomes even more perilous when he falls in love with a lovely British reporter who is determined to use Hal to wreak revenge on the enemy who had killed her brother. "If I were ever to consider authoring a novel about World War II, this is the one I would like to have written." Review by Freddie Saundby "Filled with vivid detail, peopled with rich, compelling characters and spiced with an intriguing love triangle, RUSH TO GLORY keeps the tension high." "Robert L. Hecker has created a memorable story rich with emotions. His characters so life-like they remain with you long after you finish the book." "RUSH TO GLORY has all the elements of a Greek tragedy: blind ambition, betrayal and redempion, lust and compassion..."

Rush To Glory

by Tom Rubython, Rush To Glory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rush To Glory books, The greatest duel in FORMULA 1 history: the 1976 season between Austrian Niki Lauda and Britain's James Hunt. As the '75 season ended, Hunt was out of FORMULA 1 racing while Lauda was world champion and the odds-on favorite for ’76 with a year’s contract ahead of him and Enzo Ferrari begging him to sign a multi-year deal. James Hunt, without a drive until Emerson Fittipaldi broke his McLaren contract, grabbed the McLaren drive with both hands and the help of friend John Hogan and Marlboro cigarettes. The result? Two drivers in an epic sixteen-race battle across the globe for the '76 title, ultimately decided by a single point. Fame, wealth, drugs, sex, and the rest of globetrotting 1970s FORMULA 1 racing are encompassed in the Lauda vs. Hunt duel. At the '76 German Grand Prix, Lauda nearly died in a fiery crash, only to emerge six weeks later, severe burns on his face and head, to pursue his rivalry with Hunt. It all came down to the last race, a rain-soaked affair in Japan, where Hunt won the championship by the slimmest possible margin. The book is a study in contrasts during an era of Brut aftershave and disco sex parties. James Hunt, legendary philanderer and FORMULA 1 rock star, versus supernatural racer Niki Lauda, who in '75 set the first sub-seven minute lap around the Ring.

Oh My Glory

by Denise Rush, Oh My Glory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Oh My Glory books, Sports define Marion. In the early 1920s, she would rather play ball with the boys in her backyard cow pasture than with dolls. Between family duties, it is there that she hones her batting and fielding skills. In 1936, upon graduation from Malden High School, she earns a spot as first baseman for the women's professional softball team: The Boston Olympets, who, during World War II, played in the Boston Garden and other arenas against rivals throughout New England and Canada. These ladies might be considered the "dream team" of women, some of whose lives and plays at the plate were later portrayed in the movie A League of Their Own by Rosie O'Donnell, Madonna, and Geena Davis. Fate and Uncle Sam intervened for Marion, however, and she was unable to become one of those Racine Belles. Glory and fame seemed lost forever-or so it would seem. Time has passed and new opponents have come to challenge her. At war with illness-cancer, broken bones, and congestive heart failure-she has persevered, sporting her characteristic positive attitude. Now is her time; she has earned her glory, and, at 90+ years, Marion remains In A League of Her Own.
