That night, Clara dreams about the Nutcracker prince: he comes to life, fights off the Rat King and his minions, and takes her to his kingdom.

All necessary means by Ben Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 17 January, 1991, allied forces began the liberation of Kuwait from Iraqi occupation under UN authority to use 'all necessary means'. Those means included a relentless air campaign and a brilliantly planned ground war and eventually secured the defeat of the fourth largest army in the world in only 100 hours. Yet behind the daily news reports, BBC TV correspondents Ben Brown and David Shukman reveal that much was left undisclosed. Allied commanders were very concerned that US general 'Stormin' Norman' Schwarzkopf's ferocious temper was creating an unhealthy atmosphere in the Riyadh war room. There were arguments between the Royal Navy and the US Marines over clearing mines in the Gulf. And the British refused to fight a land war alongside the 'gung-ho glory-seekers' of the US Marine Corps. The authors also look at the heroic work of the SAS who were sent behind enemy lines to track down and destroy Saddam's Scud missiles and to cut Iraq's communication cables. Ben Brown an David Shukman have interviewed most of the British war cabinet; key allied commanders; pilots who flew Stealth fighters and B-52 bombers; intelligence officials on both sides of the Atlantic; and Iraqi troops. From these interviews--and access to confidential government documents and personal diaries--they build up a fascinating, often surprising, picture of the real war behind the television images. -- Back cover

9 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the village of Monte Athena in Italy at the turn of the 19th century, necklines are high, parents are rigid, and marriage is seldom a matter of love. Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short
