Thirty miles of jaw-dropping magnificence: this remains one of the most dramatic and exciting stretches of coastline in Europe despite the ever-increasing numbers of tourists. John Steinbeck wrote of the Amalfi Coast, "It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there." The picturesque villages clinging to sheer mountainsides that drop into turquoise waters are certainly a dazzling sight that you can scarcely believe, and that you will never forget. The spectacular scenery provided by the Lattari limestone cliffs and the terraced groves and vineyards, is further enhanced by the colorful, tiled domes of the churches that grace these picture-postcard tourist resorts, and the white sails of pleasure boats skimming along the shore line. In his Decameron, Boccaccio described this region as "the only delectable part of Italy, full of towns, gardens, springs and wealthy men." This is perhaps truer today than ever before. The isolation of Amalfi and surrounding villages prompted a decline in economic importance and population which has only recently revived, through the construction of the cliff-top road linking the region to Naples and Salerno, and the advent of tourism. For those who do decide to make the Amalfi Coast the base for their visit to the region, there is enough diversity in the several resorts here to suit almost everyone. Indefatigable shoppers and lovers of glitz and glamor will adore Positano, its narrow streets crammed with boutiques so trendy that clothes bought here are judged to have a style of their own, with plenty of bars and clubs where you can show them off. Amalfi offers a good central location, and the benefits of a beach resort with a number of cultural and historic sites thrown in. Ravello, nestling in the hills above, is unequalled for romance and elegance. This guide tell you everything you need to know about this unforgettable area and how to experience it fully. 1.

Vegas and the Mob , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 352min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Las Vegas was the Mob's greatest venture and most spectacular success, and through 40 years of frenzy, murder, deceit, scams, and skimming, the FBI listened on phone taps and did virtually nothing to stop the fun. This is the truth about the Mob's control of the casinos in Vegas like you've never heard it before, from start to finish. Two of the nation's most powerful crime family bosses went to prison in the 1930s: Al Capone, and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit, while Frank Costello ran things for the Luciano Family. Both men were influenced by their bosses from prison, and both sent enough gangsters into the streets to influence loan sharking, extortion, union control, and drug sales. Bugsy Siegel worked for both groups, handling a string of murders and opening up gaming on the west coast, and that included Las Vegas, an oasis of sin in the middle of the desert - and it was legal. Most of it. The FBI watched as the Mob took control of casino after casino, killed off the competition, and stole enough money to bribe their way to respectability back home. By the 1950s, nearly every major crime family had a stake in a Las Vegas casino. Some did better than others. Casino owners watched-over their profits while competing crime families eyed each other's success like jealous lovers. Murder often followed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Sullivan.

In "Death for Double-O Neighbors", Tom Lucas owes plenty to Old Bob Hurley who raised him and helped him start up his own ranch, the Wagon Wheel. Lucas is also in love with his granddaughter, Marcia, who has just returned from the East. Hurley calls a meeting of all the small ranchers, for which Tom is a leader, to warn them a range war is headed their way if the skimming off of his yearlings doesn't stop. Lucas is torn by his loyalty to both Hurley and his Double-O Ranch on one side and to the small ranchers on the other. That loyalty is tested when his ranch is burned out and he and his partner are branded cattle thieves by Hurley himself.When Stanley Blanton, an engineer charting the mineral resources of the Northland, in the "Out Trail", crashes through a snow bridge with his sled and dogs, he injures his ankle. Two hundred and fifty miles from food and shelter for both himself and his dogs in the midst of a blizzard, all hope seems gone until a sled team appears in the distance. Knowing the code of the North - that one must to help another in distress - Blanton calls out, but the man and his team pass him by.Court martialed and losing the woman he loved seven years earlier, Cass Morgan, in "Powder for Santa Anna", has been living recklessly, shipping freight between the African coast and the Mexican gulf with his partner, O'Malley. As the war with Mexico, which Morgan is against, ramps up and the services of brigs are needed to move supplies and men to Taylor at the mouth of the Rio Grande, a web of deceit encircles Morgan as rumors of blockade running and smuggling contraband, including slaves, into Mexico tighten around him.When Tom Buckner, in "Hunted Wolf", quits Hal Stafford's Cross-T Ranch, he didn't expect to be pursued and left to die in the desert, his horse wounded and a single cartridge in his gun. The appearance of a scrawny wolf at the dry basin provides a chance for survival - and revenge - if only Buckner can outw 1. Language: English. Narrator: Traber Burns.

Landing on the Edge of Eternity: Twenty-Four Ho...

Before World War II, Normandy's Plage d'Or coast was best known for its sleepy villages and holiday destinations. Early in 1944, German commander Field Marshal Erwin Rommel took one look at the gentle, sloping sands and announced 'They will come here!' He was referring to 'Omaha Beach'-the prime American D-Day landing site. The beach was subsequently transformed into three miles of lethal, bunker-protected arcs of fire, with seaside chalets converted into concrete strongpoints, fringed by layers of barbed wire and mines. The Germans called it 'the Devil's Garden.' When Company A of the US 116th Regiment landed on Omaha Beach in D-Day's first wave on 6th June 1944, it lost 96% of its effective strength. Sixteen teams of US engineers arriving in the second wave were unable to blow the beach obstacles, as first wave survivors were still sheltering behind them. This was the beginning of the historic day that Landing on the Edge of Eternity narrates hour by hour-rom midnight to midnight-tracking German and American soldiers fighting across the beachhead.  Mustered on their troop transport decks at 2am, the American infantry departed in landing craft at 5am. Skimming across high waves, deafened by immense broadsides from supporting battleships and weak from seasickness, they caught sight of land at 6.15. Eleven minutes later, the assault was floundering under intense German fire. Two and a half hours in, General Bradley, commanding the landings aboard USS Augusta, had to decide if to proceed or evacuate. On June 6th there were well over 2,400 casualties on Omaha Beach - easily D-Day's highest death toll. The Wehrmacht thought they had bludgeoned the Americans into bloody submission, yet by mid-afternoon, the American troops were ashore. Why were the casualties so grim, and how could the Germans have failed? Juxtaposing the American experience-pinned down, swamped by a rising tide, facing young Wehrmacht soldiers fighting desperately for their lives, Kershaw draws on eyewitness accounts, memories, letters, and post-combat reports to expose the true horrors of Omaha Beach. These are stories of humanity, resilience, and dark humor; of comradeship and a gritty patriotism holding beleaguered men together. Landing on the Edge of Eternity is a dramatic historical ride through an amphibious landing that looked as though it might never succeed.
