We were fighting on the wrong side, of a war we couldn't win. And that was the good news.The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon come ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There go the good old days, when humans only got killed by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits.When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved. The UN Expeditionary Force hitched a ride on Kristang ships to fight the Ruhar, wherever our new allies thought we could be useful. So, I went from fighting with the US Army in Nigeria, to fighting in space. It was lies, all of it. We shouldn't even be fighting the Ruhar, they aren't our enemy, our allies are.I'd better start at the beginning....

Der Auftaktband zur legendären Ex-Force-Serie „Die Ruhar griffen uns am Columbus Day an. Wir trieben auf unserer kleinen blauen Murmel durch den Kosmos – arglos, wie die amerikanischen Ureinwohner im Jahr 1492. Dann tauchten am Horizont Raumschiffe einer technisch überlegenen Spezies auf. Und – BAM! – war die gute alte Zeit vorbei. Jene Zeit, als wir Menschen uns nur gegenseitig töteten. Also Columbus Day – Kolumbustag. Das passt. Am nächsten Morgen funkelte der Himmel wieder, diesmal von den Raumschiffen der Kristang, die gekommen waren, um die Ruhar wegzuballern. Prompt dachten wir, wir wären gerettet, und die UN Expeditionary Force sollte die Kristang im Kampf gegen die Ruhar unterstützen. Ich verließ meinen Posten bei der US-Army, um fortan im Weltraum zu kämpfen. Nicht gerade ein fairer Kampf. Denn leider waren all unsere Infos Lügen – nichts als Lügen. Der größte Fehler war, überhaupt gegen die Ruhar zu kämpfen. Denn die sind nicht unser Feind, sondern unsere Verbündeten. Aber ich fange wohl besser am Anfang an ..." Craig Alanson erstellte früher Finanzberichte für ein großes IT-Dienstleistungsunternehmen. Er schrieb nachts und am Wochenende Romane. Innerhalb von sechs Monaten nach der ersten E-Book-Veröffentlichung konnte er seinen Job aufgeben und eine Vollzeit-Schreibkarriere beginnen.

The Politics of Upheaval, 1935-1936, volume three of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and biographer Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.'s Age of Roosevelt series, concentrates on the turbulent concluding years of Franklin D. Roosevelt's first term. A measure of economic recovery revived political conflict and emboldened FDR's critics to denounce "that man in the White house." To his left were demagogues -- Huey Long, Father Coughlin, and Dr. Townsend. To his right were the champions of the old order -- ex-president Herbert Hoover, the American Liberty League, and the august Supreme Court. For a time, the New Deal seemed to lose its momentum. But in 1935 FDR rallied and produced a legislative record even more impressive than the Hundred Days of 1933 -- a set of statutes that transformed the social and economic landscape of American life. In 1936 FDR coasted to reelection on a landslide. Schlesinger has his usual touch with colorful personalities and draws a warmly sympathetic portrait of Alf M. Landon, the Republican candidate of 1936.
