A brand-new story about World War II’s daring African-American heroes from the author of The Forgotten 500. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American pilots in the US military, and Operation Halyard was one of the most extraordinary rescue missions of World War II, described in Gregory Freeman’s The Forgotten 500. Now a newly discovered connection between them has come to light—the “Red Tails” flew fighter cover for the mission. The remarkable story is revealed here by the author whose work James Bradley calls “amazing [and] riveting.”

This book provides essays that will enhance our knowledge about the way we look at genetic engineering.

Read about Marmalade and her two very mischievous kittens, Buttons and his sister Cotton, Puddles the Dog and Tallulah the Tortoise, and all the other animals that come into the garden where they live. Bernie and her Mum went inside, because Bernie was tired, she was either always tired, or crying, usually both, and Buttons had often wondered why they had never taken her back to where it was they got her from, to swap her, maybe, for a little girl that didn't cry so much.
