This book is a continuation of the World War III series, an Amazon top-selling series. See what happens to America when the country refuses to surrender their forces in the Middle East and capitulate to the Caliphate’s demands. In this second installment of James Rosone and Miranda Watson’s World War III series, we discover the fate of New York City as the Islamic Republic steers a freighter into New York Harbor. Join the authors as they walk us through the final battles in Israel that will transform the Middle East for generations. Will the advent of fighter drones, light drone tanks, and new main battle tanks be enough to allow America to rise from the ashes? Or will advances in additive manufacturing and the unholy axis powers of Russia, China, and the Islamic Republic be enough to conquer the world? Will the uniting of the Islamic world under one banner be enough to defeat Israel and the West, or will they succumb to their own religious theocracy and extremist interpretation of Islam? Will China look to technology to increase their food production or decide to incorporate the rest of Asia into a Greater Chinese nation? With Russia having successfully taken back their former Soviet Republics, will they finally destroy NATO and incorporate the European Union into the ever expanding Russian Federation? This gripping political and military thriller looks at the potential future of 2041, the coming clash of civilizations, the rise of new superpowers, and the decline of the West. 1. Language: English.

Terracotta Warriors provides an intriguing, original and up-to-date account of one of the wonders of the ancient world. This is the first audiobook available for the general listener which incorporates the most recent excavations, new theories and discoveries. In one of the most astounding archaeological discoveries of all time, the Terracotta Warriors were discovered by chance by farmers in 1974. We now understand that the excavated pits containing nearly 8,000 warriors and hundreds of horses are only part of a much grander mausoleum complex. There is a great deal still to be discovered and understood about the entire area, which is now thought to cover around 100 square kilometres. And there is the tantalising possibility of the opening of the imperial tomb. With unique access to the leading Chinese archaeologists and historians - including the full support of the Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Relics Bureau, responsible for all archaeological sites and museums in the province - Burman is able to guide us through the ancient Chinese concept of longevity and the afterlife, essential to understand the mausoleum. We can see as never before how the Terracotta Warriors strongly represent the fascinating circumstances in which they lived. Read by Roger Davis.
