Judge Not is based on history, but it is so realistic that readers will feel they are one of the characters. Compellingly told in adventure-filled stages, it transports the reader from the first footprints of the San tribesmen out of Ethiopia, through the original Bantu people migrating down the face of Africa. It goes through each step in the journey and their evolution in stages, such as the early civilization of the Great Zimbabwe. It tells the story of European colonization and its effects and consequences on the indigene. The eventual journey of the Great Trek of the Dutch from the Cape is eventful and spellbinding. It is virtually a history in itself. All these various people make up the cast in this engrossing book. Their adventures, beliefs, passions, lives, wars, and politics over the millenia and last three centuries are related in a gripping drama that has brought them into the twenty-first century.

About the author

The Author, now retired to Melbourne Australia, has lived his life in Africa south of the equator. He has smelled the sea salt of the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean and breathed the fresh fragrance of the African Savanna after it has rained, while marvelling at the unique beauty of a Serengeti sunset. Under a panoply of scintillating starlight, he has slept beside an open fire in the Kalahari and Botswana border bushveld. His life and work have brought him into close contact with many of the indigenous tribes of sub Equatorial Africa. Born and raised in South Africa, his insightful and entertaining writing through firsthand experience brings to life the people, their migrations, lifestyles, cultures, wars and politics.

Stephen E. Ambrose’s iconic New York Times bestseller about the ordinary men who became the World War II’s most extraordinary soldiers: Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, US Army.

They came together, citizen soldiers, in the summer of 1942, drawn to Airborne by the $50 monthly bonus and a desire to be better than the other guy. And at its peak—in Holland and the Ardennes—Easy Company was as good a rifle company as any in the world.

From the rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to the disbanding in 1945, Stephen E. Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and as they advanced through Europe, the men of Easy kept getting the tough assignments.

They parachuted into France early D-Day morning and knocked out a battery of four 105 mm cannon looking down Utah Beach; they parachuted into Holland during the Arnhem campaign; they were the Battered Bastards of the Bastion of Bastogne, brought in to hold the line, although surrounded, in the Battle of the Bulge; and then they spearheaded the counteroffensive. Finally, they captured Hitler's Bavarian outpost, his Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden.

They were rough-and-ready guys, battered by the Depression, mistrustful and suspicious. They drank too much French wine, looted too many German cameras and watches, and fought too often with other GIs. But in training and combat they learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They discovered that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.

This is the story of the men who fought, of the martinet they hated who trained them well, and of the captain they loved who led them. E Company was a company of men who went hungry, froze, and died for each other, a company that took 150 percent casualties, a company where the Purple Heart was not a medal—it was a badge of office.
