The Knights Templar( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the activities of the Knights Templar, a group of knights who took vows like a monastic order and fought violently against the Sacacens during the Crusades. Malcolm Barber, the world's leading Templar historian, explored the impressive rise and rapid fall of a group ahead of its time. Did the Knights cause the Crusades to ultimately fail? What happened to the surviving warriors of the Order? And-- even more important-- was there a secret treasure and where might it be now?
Samurai and the swastika( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the long-overlooked story of the strategic alliance between the Axis powers. See how Japan supplied Germany with much-needed raw materials for the war, while German engineers shared sophisticated rocket and jet-propulsion technology with their Japanese counterparts. Jointly, they supported anti-English uprisings in India, giving aid and military supplies to Bose Chandras, a dissident Indian general, and his guerilla army. And in perhaps the boldest scheme of all, they conspired to destroy the Panama Canal and cut off America's Pacific war from its crucial Atlantic supply operations. Here, sophisticated computer animations bring this bold scheme to life in astonishing detail

"In this high-octane program espionage takes wing with some of the most advanced aircraft ever built. During the nearly half-century-long Cold War the U.S.S.R. and the U.S. were engaged in the dangerous battle for hearts minds and power. In the name of deterrence and defense they each assembled the most advanced and powerful militaries in history. Armed only with cameras the spy planes developed by these powerful nations during this tense and uncertain period flew higher faster and farther than their predecessors. They had names such as the Neptune RB-57D U-2 RB-57F and the SR-71 Blackbird. SPY PLANES tells the tales of these extraordinary creations detailing the missions introducing the pioneers who made it all possible and highlighting the technological advances that helped propel aviation into the future. From unforgettable encounters to canceled projects this is the complete tale of how two superpowers executed a high-stakes high-high-altitude battle for military superiority."--Distributor's description
