This new, updated edition of The Battle of Britain on Screen examines in depth the origins, development and reception of the major dramatic screen representations of 'The Few' in the Battle of Britain produced over the past 75 years. Paul MacKenzie explores both continuity and change in the presentation of a wartime event that acquired and retains near-mythical dimensions in popular consciousness and has been represented many times in feature films and television dramas. Alongside relevant technical developments, the book also examines the social, cultural, and political changes occurring in the second half of the 20th century and first decade of current century that helped shape how the battle came to be framed dramatically. This edition contains a new chapter looking at the portrayal of the Battle of Britain at the time of its 70th anniversary. Through its perceptive demonstration of how our memory of the battle has been constantly reshaped through film and television, The Battle of Britain on Screen provides students of the Second World War, 20th-century Britain and film history with a thorough and complex understanding of an iconic historical event.

Here you will walk many a walk with me, As I take you down many a road, Herein you will find my strength, Even when I'm in stealth mode. My words are not of self pity, Nor sympathy, no way is that true... They are simply to let you know, Inner-strength has to come from you! My words are my life, my life's in my words, Read them and tell me true... If I can survive all that I have, Then I say it - so the heck can you!!! I walk a harsh walk with my health, but I've never given in or gone under! I've always held onto God! He has my back! It is only through my faith and belief in Him and that I am here today - and still fighting the good fight. This is a 'dip in and mooch' book...So dip in and mooch!! Enjoy!! Catherine

On My Way Home is part-memoir/part-inspiration and insights drawn from the author's life experiences to highlight the practicality and power of surrendering one's life to the government of biblical principles: faith, love, obedience to God's Word, and intimacy with God. At eighteen years old, Dencle's journey takes a sudden, dramatic turn, and what began as a normal summer day in tropical Jamaica, a few miles away from the world-famous Negril beach, ends with radical changes in the values and pursuits of this teenager. One question led to another, and before he could fully appreciate what was happening, Dencle walked past his friends, all the way to the front of the church, knelt down and responded to the question that had firmly captured his mind and commanded this profound immediate response. This marked the beginning of a life-long quest to know God and to dig into the promise of a real God for real people. In Part 1 of On My Way Home, we are given a front-row seat as we are allowed to examine the author's life and background. Then in Part 2, he takes us with him on a journey of exploration as his life is transformed by his discoveries of God's character and makes a convincing case that we can have those same discoveries as well. On My Way Home simplifies the fundamentals of Christian living. The command to love the Lord and our neighbor, for example, is translated into a manageable slogan-"Love is primary, everything else is secondary"-that we can easily remember and apply to everyday situations, every point carefully explained so that the reader gets it. This book makes us feel like a life of faith and intimacy with God is right at our fingertips, ending with Dencle's glimpse of paradise and thoughts of home.
