Never guilty, never free by Ginny Foat( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces Ginny Foat's life from her girlhood through an ill-fated conventional marriage to her meeting with Jack Sidote, who she thought was the "man of her dreams". But by the time Ginny discovered his true nature, she was too beaten down to free herself. The story of her life is as dramatic as any novel. Her metamorphosis as a woman is a personal and a feminist triumph. This inspiring story of a human being coming to terms with the past has resonances that speak to us all
Napoleon's lost fleet : Bonaparte, Nelson, and the Battle of the Nile by Laura Foreman( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

August 1, 1798: Thirteen French ships sit anchored in Aboukir Bay off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt, in support of Napoleon, now ashore with the bulk of his troops. Nighttime approaches--and so do the British. Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson has for months been hunting Napoleon at sea; now, upon his command, the English fleet opens fire on the surprised and trapped enemy. By battle's end, nearly all of the French ships are sunk or captured, and the 120-gun flagship Orient--the pride of the French navy--has exploded. With 1,700 of his men dead, Bonaparte's ability to dominate the region is crushed. Nelson becomes a hero throughout all of Britain. Discovery Books presents Napoleon's lost fleet: Bonaparte, Nelson, and the Battle of the Nile, a spirited chronicle of Lord Nelson's pursuit of Napoleon as the French general set out to capture Egypt. Gifted storytellers Laura Foreman and Ellen Blue Phillips bring this great age of naval warfare to life as they recount the greed, audacity, bravery, and bloodshed that made up this, the Battle of the Nile. With equal parts bold narrative and historical accuracy, the authors show Bonaparte and Nelson as complex and brilliant militarists destined to lead their countries to glory. That Nelson prevailed in Egypt was testament to his impudence, his highly maneuverable ships--and considerable good fortune. Despite an ill-equipped, undermanned, and financially strapped navy, Napoleon had assembled a formidable armada of 13 battleships, 300 transport vessels, and 38,000 men. His plan to conquer Egypt--which started off with a treasure-raiding stop at Malta along the way--might well have succeeded if the pursuing Nelson had not followed a hunch about Bonaparte's destination. Following this riveting account of the chase, the battle, and the aftermath, the book takes readers far beneath Aboukir Bay with French underwater explorer Franck Goddio and his team as they dive at the site of the Orient and two other sunken French ships, the Serieuse and the Artemise. There they uncover and salvage exotic coins, artillery, personal artifacts, and other finds that speak eloquently of life at sea and at war in the late eighteenth century. Lavishly illustrated with more than 200 extraordinary full-color photographs, expedition images, portraits, scenic paintings, and battle maps, Napoleon's lost fleet joins military history with cutting-edge marine archaeology to captivate all lovers of discovery
Alexander the conqueror : the epic story of the warrior king by Laura Foreman( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one has made a mark on the world more profoundly than Alexander the Great, the young man who, through war, diplomacy, and arguably Machiavellian means, expanded his empire to include most of the Western world and beyond -- all before he died at age thirty-three. A remarkable individual whose path crossed with some of the most influential people, places, and events of all time, Alexander began his combat training at age seven, studied philosophy with Aristotle at age thirteen, kept a copy of Homer's Iliad under his pillow until his death, and introduced Greek and oriental cultural influences throughout his vast empire. Alexander: The Conqueror follows his triumphs through the Near East and Central Asia to the Indus Valley. It explores Alexander's family, the personalities of his generals, and the cultures of the lands he conquered. Author Laura Foreman probes the complex character of Alexander as student, friend, lover, military genius, and emperor and investigates the many unsolved mysteries surrounding his life: Who did Alexander turn to in passion and for comfort? Was Alexander a careful, amiable mastermind or a drunken brute? Could Alexander have been responsible for his father's murder? Compelling landscape photography, ancient art and artifacts, and informative, beautifully crafted maps complement the lively, insightful narrative, offering a visual feast of Alexander's life of conquest and intrigue
