The Eagle Strikes weaves terrorism, conflict, libido, bigotry, technology, and suspense into a fact-filled fictitious novel. When The Eagle set his goal of Universal Freedom for all Mankind, he expected objection and misunderstanding, but he also knew people tired of accepting corruption in government as a way of life. A prominent and catastrophic event showing total lack of government control could easily incite rebellion. He would provide that event, and another step toward a second Golden Age of Freedom would be complete. An exceptionally well structured thriller, full of suspense, and believable. Both the climax and resolution are highly satisfying.

This is the story of an audacious, airborne assault, on 4 May 1978, on a SWAPO fortified base containing its military headquarters, logistical support, reserves and training facilities. The assault was supported by a very strong air strike by bombers and fighters as well as by air transport to drop the paratroopers into battle in one of the major, post World War para drops, 250kms deep behind enemy lines, and thus, of a necessity, the deployment of a veritable swarm of helicopters to extract the paratroopers back to safety, this execution of the whole intricate operation through a joint HQ deployed in the field. Unfortunately the subsequent uproar in the international media, based on allegations that this assault was a brutal attack on a refugee camp, did much to detract from the incredible victory the SADF had claimed for the paratroopers and the air force. Was it refugee camp as claimed by the Third World and the communist block, a SWAPO HQ and strategic military establishment as claimed by the RSA government and the SADF, or a mixture of both as claimed by the truth and reconciliation commission were the casualties mostly combatants or were they innocent civilians. This is the only personal account ever written by somebody on the SADF side who 'was actually there' and who was the commander of the paratroopers. It also brings to light much more than this brief outline, especially the dangerous nature of the whole enterprise through personal experiences, by paratroopers and air crews, and how and why it nearly became the most disastrous undertaking of the whole 'bush war' era through uncalled for meddling by an outsider who should not have been there.

The following is a list of antagonists, major and minor, from Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, listed alphabetically. Anthony Sean Howell, more commonly referred to by his initials, ASH, is a major character in Snakehead. Ash was born in England and worked for MI6 with John Rider. On a mission to capture Yassen Gregorovich, he was badly injured and demoted. He eventually quit his job because he was jealous of his best friend John Rider, Alex's father, who was considered one of MI6's best operatives. He then went to work for ASIS in Australia. Alex Rider first meets him in Snakehead when he wanders into a minefield. Ash tells him not to move and leaves, claiming he will get help. This was later found to be a test, to see how Alex would react. Alex discovers that Ash is his godfather after meeting with Ethan Brooke, head of Covert Action for ASIS. The idea of learning more about his past lures Alex into working for ASIS, alongside Ash, investigating the ruthless Snakehead. They are sent on a mission together to infiltrate the Snakehead by posing as Afghan refugees trying to gain the Snakehead's help in illegally immigrating to Australia.

Originally designed by McDonnell Douglas, the airframe of the F-15 has proved to be one of the most versatile to be produced during the latter years of the Twentieth Century. The aircraft has proved itself to be an outstanding air superiority and interceptor fighter and in its Strike Eagle form, a world-beating all-weather ground-attack platform for a wide variety of sophisticated air-to-ground weapon systems. The Eagle continues to play a key role wherever U.S. and NATO forces are called upon and where control of the skies is an imperative part of the mission. The aircraft also serve with the air forces of Israel, Japan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. This is the perfect introductory book for the general reader, enthusiast and modeler alike wishing to find a succinct yet detailed introduction to the design and history of the F-15. Why was the aircraft conceived? What was it like to fly on a mission? Who were the people who designed it and became famous for flying it? What were its virtues and vices? These and many more questions are answered here, plus a host of illustrations that show variations of color schemes used in different operational theatres and rare photographs taken when the heat was on.

Nestled into a scenic mountain valley at the junction of the Eagle River and Brush Creek, Eagle is a small mountain town that is often overshadowed by its famous ski resort neighbor, Vail. However, this thriving little mountain community claims a rich history of more than 100 years of spunk and fortitude. Eagle’s robust character started with the miners who came to the valley in the 1880s seeking gold and silver. Then came the farmers and ranchers, who recognized another type of wealth in the fertile soils and abundant water of the valley. As for that spunk, the townspeople of Eagle were tenacious enough to wage a 20-year war seeking county seat status and progressive enough to keep a small town growing and thriving for over a century.

It was seen over 160 years ago. It was denied and scoffed at by experienced leaders and elders. It was a young boys tale; a fabrication to bolster his status within his tribe. Only his family believed. Over the years through turmoil and cultural upheaval the truth became known. It is a story of confirmation, standing up for ones principles and beliefs. As the years passed the implications become much broader than the original vision. Who knows how history would have c hanged if the boys story was believed? The convictions and choices that Horse Killer, Eagle Who Broke His Wing, Buffalo Robe, Fire Lance, Maxwell Slade (Sun Caller), Randle and Chip, Paxton, Sally, Tully, Fredericks, and Captain Adkins, made at various times over a 160 year span are linked together to confirm the vision. Commitment, values, convictions, and beliefs, converge to exonerate one young boys tale. Everyone is in this book or someone you know. . .

Although the feeding ecology of raptors has attracted the attention of many scientists, aspects such as diet selection and foraging strategy are still poorly understood. This is particularly true for large species such as the white-tailed eagle. Representative assessments of the contribution of food sources containing toxins such as lead to raptor diets are scarce but are essential for optimising conservation efforts. This dissertation investigated the feeding ecology of white-tailed eagles to shed light on the interaction of such top predators with their environment and to improve the conservation management of this lead-exposed species. A use of complementary methods identified the most effective approach for dietary investigations on free-ranging raptors. The findings revealed that the foraging strategy of white-tailed eagles is influenced by both individual and environmental factors and corresponds to an efficient food intake in terms of optimal foraging theory. The main sources of lead fragments that induce fatal lead poisoning are shot mammalian carcasses which constitute important alternative diet components for white-tailed eagles during the hunting season. One approach to solve the lead poisoning problem can be the use of lead-free bullets by hunters that fragment into sufficiently large particles which would be avoided by scavenging eagles and birds with similar feeding behaviour.
