World War II began with a metallic roar as the German Blitzkrieg raced across Europe, spearheaded by the most dreaded weapon of the 20th century: the Panzer. No German tank better represents that thundering power than the infamous Tiger, and Otto Carius was one of the most successful commanders to ever take a Tiger into battle, destroying well over 150 enemy tanks during his incredible career.

This book represents the war from the side of an army that was overwhelmingly outgunned and fought in some of the fiercest conditions imaginable. A truly illuminating book for anyone passionate about soldier war stories.

The war is on. The Devil plots to defeat you. Meet some battle-tested warriors who fight at your side. Satan is real. He's a formidable foe who wants to snatch us away from God, and the thought of doing battle with him can seem daunting. Even so, the saints who have gone before us have engaged the Devil, armed with the power of Christ and emerged victorious! These fellow warriors in heaven now fight on our behalf.

For any Catholic or Christian trying to reignite his or her faith and draw from illustrations of the strongest examples of faith in history, this book is for you. Also the last chapters give an onslaught of powerful and enlightening quotes that will invigorate your belief and passion for the Lord and His religion on earth.

Born in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Joseph Bonanno found his future amid the whiskey-running, riotous streets of Prohibition America in 1924, when he illegally entered the United States to pursue his dreams. By the age of only 26, Bonanno became a don. He eventually took over the New York underworld, igniting the "Castellammarese War", one of the bloodiest Family battles ever to hit New York City.

This is so much more than the tale of a former mafia boss. This is an indictment on the federal authorities and another perspective of the early families from Sicily and their operations and traditions in the US. It is spoken from the heart and well worth the audio experience.

Who was Friedrich Nietzsche? This lonely and chronically ill, yet passionate, daring, and complex man is perhaps the most mysterious and least understood of all contemporary philosophers. Why are his brilliant insights so relevant for today? How did he become the most misinterpreted and unfairly maligned intellectual figure of the last two centuries?

What's the number one quality in men that attracts women, guarantees success, and inspires your peers to follow you? Answer: confidence! Some guys have it but only in certain environments (i.e., the club, the gym, the office, etc.). But almost no one has the core confidence that you can carry into ANY environment, no matter how foreign it is to you.

Do you dread work functions? Are you anxious at parties? Avoid networking events? One of the biggest epiphanies I had in life was that social skills are just that...skills. You are no more naturally shy than you are naturally unable to drive a car. You just don't have the practice or guide to teach you. That's where The Alpha Male's Guide to Mastering the Art of Small Talk comes in! Want to be more magnetic, attractive, and able to win friends and influence people? Then look no further!

Human beings are not meant to react to civilized life from the reptilian brain. We are meant to live from a higher level of consciousness! Understanding how fear works and how to counter its destructive influence is immensely important if we want to enjoy a happier, healthier, more successful life. And these truths are clearly laid out in Guy Finley's revealing new audio program, Find the Treasure of a Fearless Life.

You know it, I know it, everyone knows it - fear is your constant companion and lifelong enemy. It strips your days of meaning, it robs you of opportunities, and it undermines your confidence as it imagines a future you wouldn't want to step in. Let's be real about it: It's also a necessary evil that keeps your ass on this side of the grass. So, the question is: How do you manage fear?

We all have our fair share of problems, anxieties, and insecurities. This is inevitable. How we deal with these things directly dictates how happy, productive, and confident we are. Far too many of us remain victims of the ups and downs of everyday life.... But YOU don't have to.
