Even if you are not the kind of person that loves history, there is a pretty good chance that you will have heard of Julius Caesar, even though he walked on the Earth over 2,000 years ago. Quite simply, he is the most well-known Roman citizen who ever lived and is the one emperor that has stuck in the minds of people for thousands of years due to his actions throughout his reign. Such was his power, and the desire of others to emulate him, that even his name spawned terms such as czar and kaiser, which have been used by other emperors centuries later to announce that they had absolute power. In other words, Julius Caesar has been held in high regard by almost anybody that wished to follow in his footsteps in some way and the fact that his name has entered into common language is testimony to the skill of the man himself. Throughout this amazing book, we will explore his early life and show how that shaped his character and then, eventually, his entire career. We will explore the highs and severe lows of his life from being forced into the army to effectively save his life, to being captured by pirates, conquests, revolts, civil war, supreme power, and of course his brutal assassination. This book does not go on hearsay, but instead it focuses on details from sources of the time. It charts his rise to power, how brutal he could be at times with people that crossed him or stood up against him. It looks at the very reasons that could have ultimately led to his assassination. Was it because he was getting too much power? Was it due to him making constitutional reforms that led to the rich getting poorer? Was it for the greater good of the empire or was it all about personal gain? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Howe.

Among members of the outlaw motorcycle clubs, Caesar Campbell is a legend. Former sergeant-at-arms and chief enforcer for the Comancheros, Caesar became the founding member and sergeant-at-arms of the Australian chapter of the Bandidos. He epitomised bikie culture - unbeatable in a fight, brutal in the extreme, fearing no one and nothing, and loyal until death. This is Caesar´s story, from his recruitment into the Comancheros, to the savage split within the club that led to the foundation of the Bandidos and the bloody massacre at Milperra that resulted from it. Enforcer is a unique and captivating true-crime story that will shock you with its raw violence, its brutality and its insights into an outlaw world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Ferguson.

We are the people our parents warned us about is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world´s most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses. He ´cooked´ ecstasy and ice for them. He was at meetings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him. It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal Police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos. This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah´s confession. He knows he is a dead man running - that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake Australians to the looming threat in their midst - the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the Police and legal system to deal with it. 1.

True War Crimes of the Gestapo: Stories of the Feared German Police Force... The Gestapo were the secret police that Hitler instituted to ferret out spies and other people who did not fall in line with his ideologies; if, for instance, someone was suspected of being of Jewish origin, Hitler would send the Gestapo to round them up, take them into custody, interrogate them - often with violent and painful methods - and then either kill or send them to a concentration camp where they would probably die in any case. When the Second World War came to an end, the Gestapo was found to be responsible for the deaths of millions of people. At the Nuremberg Trials, where most of the WW2 criminals were put on trial and then punished, the Gestapo was declared to be an official criminal organization and many of their leaders were convicted of a number of war crimes. In the end, the German secret police force was an organization that struck terror and fear into the hearts of all civilians. What made them so effective was not just their field skills or their ability to complete their mission, but the fact that they enjoyed what they did and truly believed in the skewered Nazi ideology of racism and Anti-Semitism. We will look at some of the horrific stories of the Gestapo, where they destroyed thousands of innocents and trace the lives of a few individual police offers who are known for their brutality and their cruelty during the war...
