The Ice Soldier

by Paul Watkins, The Ice Soldier Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Ice Soldier books, One man's quiet life is shattered when he's forced to confront terrifying secrets he'd thought buried high in the Italian Alps The New York Times has called his work "daring and remarkably assured," The Washington Post has dubbed it "shamelessly entertaining," and the Los Angeles Times claims it renders "the raw elegence of the human experience itself." Now Paul Watkins returns with his most engaging and atmospheric novel yet. The ice soldier of the title is one William Bromley. Following a disasterous turn in the Alps during the Second World War, William has constructed for himself a quiet and lonely life as a history teacher at a London boarding school. For different reasons, he and his best friend Stanley have given up the world of mountaineering for a more peaceful existence. Peaceful that is, until a soldier from William's mountain regiment reappears, tragedy occurs, and a terrible bargain is made. Slowly, the horrifying events of the war come back to William, and he realizes what he must do. He is to confront his worst fears and memories by returning to the glaciers and peaks of northern Italy. The little-known role of the army's mountaineer corps comes brilliantly to life in this story of men pushed to the limits of endurance and survival, and haunted by the ghosts of war. "Paul Watkins is without question one of the most gifted writers of his generation." —Tobias Wolff

Download The Ice Soldier books, While the eyes of the world are focused upon attempts to scale Mount Everest, two young men - once members of the world's climbing elite, subsequently forced into premature retirement after the failure of a secret military operation in the Alps during World War II - have become outcasts of mountaineering society. Until, that is, a peculiar and dangerous request is made of them, drawing them back to the mountains on an exploit that will prove treacherous in more ways than one, as they confront not only the pitiless cruelty of nature but also the ghosts of their former selves.

The Flight Across The Ice

by Patricia Clough, The Flight Across The Ice Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Flight Across The Ice books, It is the bitterly cold winter of 1944–45. The Red Army is advancing and millions of East Prussians are desperate to flee, but the Nazis refuse to let them. Finally, with the Russian guns within earshot, they realize that they are surrounded. With them are thousands of the most superb horses in the world—the Trakehner, bred over the past two centuries in Eastern Prussia. The horses flee in large herds or are harnessed to wagons or sleighs and face the same dangers as their guardians and owners. With little to eat and the target of Soviet bombers and tanks, many of them die on the way. Only a few hundred reach the West.
