A rollicking historical adventure which flies like an arrow from a bow. (Giles Kristian)"One of the best Griff Hosker books I have ever read." (Paul J. Bennett) The sequel to runaway best seller Lord Edward’s Archer. The year is 1264. Simon de Montfort defeats and captures King Henry III of England at the Battle of Lewes to become de facto ruler of the country. Step forward Gerald War Bow, a man of humble birth but noble intentions, a superb archer and leader of men, and a committed servant of Lord Edward – the real heir to King Henry’s throne. So ensues a series of bloodthirsty battles, acts of bravery, and rescue missions, all in the name of toppling the treasonous de Montfort. Finally, Gerald and his archers find themselves at the edge of battle at Evesham. As the royalists face de Montfort’s army, which still holds King Henry among its number, Gerald War Bow knows that the future of his country – and his own life – lie in the balance. As Gerald pulls back his bow, will he hit – or miss? "Well researched and packed with accurate historical detail the King in Waiting brings an important period in English history to rousing life." (David Penny)"In Gerald War-Bow, Hosker has crafted a heroic, humble archer with the heart of a prince." (Brook Allen) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Owen Frost.

Known to generations of Americans for his stirring call to arms, “Give me liberty or give me death,” Patrick Henry is all but forgotten today as the first of the Founding Fathers to call for independence, the first to call for revolution, and the first to call for a bill of rights. If Washington was the “Sword of the Revolution” and Jefferson, “the Pen”, Patrick Henry more than earned his epithet as “the Trumpet” of the Revolution for rousing Americans to arms in the Revolutionary War. Henry was one of the towering figures of the nation’s formative years and perhaps the greatest orator in American history. To this day, many Americans misunderstand what Patrick Henry’s cry for “liberty or death” meant to him and to his tens of thousands of devoted followers in Virginia. A prototype of the 18th- and 19th-century American frontiersman, Henry claimed individual liberties as a “natural right” to live free of “the tyranny of rulers”—American, as well as British. Henry believed that individual rights were more secure in small republics than in large republics, which many of the other Founding Fathers hoped to create after the Revolution. Henry was one of the most important and colorful of our Founding Fathers—a driving force behind three of the most important events in American history: the War of Independence, the enactment of the Bill of Rights, and, tragically, as America’s first important proponent of states’ rights, the Civil War. Harlow Giles Unger, a former distinguished visiting fellow in American history at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, is a veteran journalist, broadcaster, educator, and historian. His books include The Last Founding Father and four other biographies of America’s Founding Fathers, plus many more. He lives in New York. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Hughes.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English and Linguistics), course: English Today and Tomorrow, language: English, abstract: This empirical study will focus on the usage of accents of English Teachers in a German school in the context of second language acquisition. It becomes apparent that this theme could fill entire books due to its complexity. For this reason, the topic of research is limited to the perception of English teachers towards accents in one school in Germany. It will be examined, if British English accents are still the most spread among English teachers in German schools. After discussing the theoretical background, the method of the present study will be presented. Subsequently, the results of the evaluation of the questionnaire will be shown and finally discussed, together with the contribution to attitudinal research as well as practical implications for teachers.Nowadays, we are progressively diverging from one Standard English and therefore one standard accent to a more widespread variety of accents. Same goes for second language learners, as they adapt to these varieties. In Germany, English is taught in school as a second language beginning at the age of nine or ten. Due to a mixture of native and non-native speakers from all over the world, all teachers have their personal accent they employ in class. However, a few years ago, British English (English English) was still seen as the most favorable language to use in class. Because of its actuality, several studies have already been realized. As an example, it has been revealed that British English does no longer receive the highest ratings and that the American accent is emerging, while Received Pronunciation (R.P.) still scored highest in Giles' study in 1970. Regarding the context of school, the teachers' consciousness and attitudes towards accents have been examined. In order to also take a look at the other side of the coin, Alford and Strother (1990) have concentrated on non-native speakers' reactions to different accents. For comparison purposes, Major et al. (2002) also focused on the effects of learning from native or non-native teachers.

It developed from a system produced by Thomas Wade during the mid-19th century and was given completed form with Herbert Giles' Chinese-English dictionary of 1892.
