Brothers in arms : the unique collection of letters and photographs from two brothers at the front during the First World War( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hidden away in the back of an old desk drawer was a dusty pile of school-style exercise books. In them were the recollections of a young officer who had fought with the Essex Regiment in the First World War from the Battle of Neuve Chapelle in 1915, through the mud and misery of Ypres, to see victory in 1918. Discovering the memoirs of Lieutenant Robert D'Arblay Gybbon-Monypenny was not the only surprise, what was even more remarkable was how well-written they were, how vividly life and death in the trenches was portrayed. That life in the trenches saw Robert hit by a sniper's bullet, buried in appalling mud-slides, choked in a chlorine gas attack and almost bayoneted by one of his own men, driven insane by the perpetual shelling. Inevitably, he was wounded as he led his men over the top at Arras, yet somehow he survived. To add to these riches were letters home from both Robert Moneypenny and his brother, and fellow officer, Phillips, who won the Military Cross with the Royal West Kent Regiment, but who was killed just four months before the end of the war. The collection of memoirs, letters and personal photographs are woven together to produce a gripping and powerfully frank testimony - one that will come to be recognised as amongst the finest personal accounts of the First World War ever to be published"--Publisher's description

Historical atlas of the Holy Lands by Karen Farrington( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Garden of Eden to St Peter's Basilica in Rome, from ancient stories chronicling the changing fortunes of various peoples to the present-day findings of archaeologists and scholars, the history of the region known as the Holy Lands, which now covers Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Israel, yields fascinating and often contintious information about the origins of western civilization. As the key point of contact linking Europe, Asia and Africa, the Holy Lands has been a stage for both peaceful exchanges and violent clashes between cultures, as it continues in the 21st century. This atlas presents an account of the social, geographical and political background of the entire region, not only retelling the classic biblical stories but looking at the latest archaeological evidence and providing an up-to-date account of what is known about these stories
