A Higher Call – The Incredible True Story of Heroism and Chivalry during the Second World War – Just 98p 0 comments

Five days before Christmas 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a twenty-one-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. Suddenly a German Messerschmitt fighter pulled up on the bomber’s tail – the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger. This is the true story of the two pilots whose lives collided in the skies that day – the American – 2nd Lieutenant Charlie Brown and the German – 2nd Lieutenant Franz Stigler.
A Higher Call follows both Charlie and Franz’s harrowing missions and gives a dramatic account of the moment when they would stare across the frozen skies at one another. What happened between them, the American 8th Air Force would later classify as ‘top secret’. It was an act that Franz could never mention or else face a firing squad.

Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir – A radical reimagining of the immigrant memoir – Just 99p 0 comments

Assimilating ain’t easy. Eddie Huang was raised by a wild family of FOB (“fresh off the boat”) immigrants—his father a cocksure restaurateur with a dark past back in Taiwan, his mother a fierce protector and constant threat.
Young Eddie tried his hand at everything mainstream America threw his way, from white Jesus to macaroni and cheese, but finally found his home as leader of a rainbow coalition of lost boys up to no good: skate punks, dealers, hip-hop junkies, and sneaker freaks.
This is the story of a Chinese-American kid in a could-be-anywhere cul-de-sac blazing his way through America’s deviant subcultures, trying to find himself, ten thousand miles from his legacy and anchored only by his conflicted love for his family and his passion for food.
Funny, moving, and stylistically inventive, Fresh Off the Boat is more than a radical reimagining of the immigrant memoir—it’s the exhilarating story of every American outsider who finds his destiny in the margins. Buy this memoir today for only 99p.

Caught in the Crossfire: Scotland’s Deadliest Drugs War – £1.89 0 comments

Scotland’s deadliest gang war of a generation – the Daniel family versus the Lyons – was sparked by a cocaine theft from a house party which unleashed a decade of murderous violence. Devastation ensued… beatings, slashings, abductions and torture. Homes were firebombed while children slept; witnesses were forced into protection and families ripped apart.
The desecration of the grave of eight-year-old cancer victim Garry Lyons marked a sickening low.
Caught in the crossfire were brave residents of Milton, Glasgow, who opposed their community centre being used as a taxpayer-funded gang hut by the Lyons. Against the odds, they won their six-year battle which exposed a murky nexus between police officers, politicians and the underworld.
This is the explosive story of how the Daniel-Lyons feud engulfed a community and spread from the mean streets into the corridors of power. Buy this history today for £1.89.
