Human Body

When we are babies and our mind starts to gradually open, we slowly discover the world around us with the help of our sensory organs. Lots of colours, forms, sounds and scents, as well as caressing touching, can step-by-step combine and become sensations already connected to certain persons or objects. First, it is generally our mother’s face that is recorded in our brain; she is recognized by her scent and embrace affording warmth and security. Later on we learn to form sounds, words and sentences, to toddle, then to walk. In the course of our development, we become more and more independent, our knowledge broadens, and we seem to take over the direction of our body. However, our organisation is a very complicated union of systems and organs, which is in turn regulated by our nervous and endocrine systems; our role is to  support the functioning of this infinitely complex body. This is possible if, for example, we try to live a healthy life, to eat a balanced diet and take regular physical exercise. It also helps if we understand the structure and functions of our body; how it responds to the effects of the outside world, how it can fight against illnesses or how it can prepare for the “emergencies”. This volume will come to your aid with its spectacular 3D illustrations, and with them, you can take an imaginary journey into the mysterious inner world of the human being, the most wonderful creature in the world.

Ice Age

Woolly mammoths, sabre-toothed cats hunting in packs, huge ground sloths, giant armadillos and opossums wandering across endless snowfields are typical of the fauna of the Ice Age. The wildlife in the period of the Earth’s history called the Pleistocene, however, was far richer than this. Among the exotic animals grazing on the plains of Europe and Asia were rhinos, hippos, gazelles, ancient types of elephant, wild horses and giant tortoises. These were prey for cave lions, giant leopards and cave hyenas. This book also looks at the herbivores and large predators of the other continents. It shows the hunting strategy of the fearsome dire wolf in North America, the largest of the sabretooths, Smilodon fatalis, in South America, the gigantic crocodile, Crocodylus thorbjarnarsoni, in Africa, the king of monitor lizards, Megalania, in Australia, and the record-sized ancient shark, Megalodon, in the oceans.

Some of the artistic pictures can be looked at through 3D glasses, bringing the extraordinary creatures of this lost age within reach. 

Illustrated Atlas of Modern Wars

Submarines with the power to destroy armies lurking in the ocean depths, armed nuclear bombers circling over the Arctic Circle, and hidden missile silos in the Siberian forests and in the bowels of the Rockies were commonplace in the Cold War. Never in the history of the world were so many wars waged as in the second half of the 20th century. Korea, Vietnam, the Middle East, Afghanistan, the Falkland Islands each was the theatre of a bloody war; wars which affected both superpowers and which threatened to spread the conflict like wildfire, raising the spectre of a third world war and the destruction of mankind. This volume, which can be regarded as the continuation of the highly successful Illustrated Atlas of World War II, shows the weapons, aircraft and military vehicles of the era in large, highly detailed, colour illustrations. These help demonstrate the great development of military technology in the fifty years following World War II.

Military Vehicles

In the middle of September 1916 the German soldiers hardened by the trench warfare of World War I heard a strange noise from their positions near the French village of Flers-Courcelette. After the usual artillery bombardment, instead of an infantry attack the squeaking of tracks and the roar of engines announced the arrival of almost 50 lurching, armoured monsters on the horizon. The soldiers fired with their machine guns at the mechanised armour they had never seen before to no avail: the vehicles trundled on unharmed over the barbed wire entanglements, which were thought to be impenetrable. At the time the first tank attack in history was made, no one could have imagined that just 23 years later the modern tanks of the German army would conquer almost the whole of Europe or that in the winter of 1991 the armoured coalition forces sweeping aside Saddam Hussein's feared army in the Iraqi desert could be watched almost live on television. How did the lurching metal box become a military vehicle powered by gas turbine able to race at 45 miles per hour and fire accurately even at night? How has the use of tanks changed? What could the tank crews who fought in the largest tank battle in history have seen and felt? This book answers these and many other fascinating questions.

The Age of Knights

The idea of the knight is usually associated in our minds with images of fearless crusaders of the middle ages, as they are charging on the battlefield with their spears forward, testing their strength in duels, or going on adventures accompanied by their loyal squires. Their armor is shiny with sunlight. Their shields are emblazoned with lions, eagles, and dragons. Their capes are sailing behind them, and  the wind flutters royal flags above their plumed helmets... Did these invincible warriors really look and behave like that? Did medieval people really live such romantic lives?

The Art of Hunting

"Do you want to survive? Eat, then!" States one of the most simple, most fundamental laws of the animal kingdom. "But how do we get what we desire?" the animals ask. "First, evaluate your abilities! If nature equipped you with weapons suited for the hunt, or with fast movement, you might become an excellent predator. If you happen to fall short of these, employ other tricks: Camouflage yourself, set a trap, or steal morsels from the "plates" of others. And what can one do if the "all you can eat" buffet has been depleted? "Well, yes, at such a time it is a good idea to have reserves... but if you are not too lazy to migrate, perhaps you won't go hungry then, either. If you are skilful, careful and lucky enough, then you can avoid becoming prey for others..." 

Volume 3 of the Masters of the Animal Kingdom series circumnavigates every trick of hunting, fishing and gathering, while teaching the reader the dominant, typical, exceptional or special feeding habits of the animal kingdom.

The Car

Nearly a hundred and thirty years have passed since German inventor Karl Benz debuted his first car, the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, in 1886. The public of the day received the invention with mild enthusiasm. However, those who denied the significance of this revolutionary invention have been proven wrong by the existence of the many millions of cars that have been traversing the roads ever since. At the beginning of the 20th century, the car was considered an unreachable luxury for most people; today, it has become an integral part of daily life. Perhaps this is why it is worth examining it closer; how it is designed and the natural laws that govern its operation. The book guides the reader through the sometimes-complicated mechanical solutions with the aid of detailed, but easy-to-understand illustrations, taking one essential car component at a time. All this is made even more lifelike by spectacular, three-dimensional pictures.

“If the love for cars and driving is a burning passion in someone, this educational volume is the equivalent of a sacred text.”

The Illustrated Atlas of World War I

The Illustrated Atlas of World War I gives an insight into the period when the belief in mankind's good nature was lost for ever; into the time when nations preferred to take up arms rather than to endure peace that was shameful for them; into the hordes of unnamed soldiers, who willing accepted the risk and fought heroically for their country and their cause; into the war which the opposing forces believed would end all wars. The Illustrated Atlas of World War I is a guide to the 'Great War', to the shocking fighting that took place in the trenches, on the floating fortresses, in the dogfights and on the battlefields, where modern warfare was born. Expertly written, comprehensive texts brimming with information are complemented by faithful, specially selected illustrations, detailed diagrams and maps. Read the dramatic stories of Verdun, Ypres, the Somme, Isonzo, Passchendaele, and the scenes of other events that today are synonymous with colossal human suffering and senseless sacrifice. Learn about the operations, the weapons, strategies and leaders, and about the events of the war waged almost one hundred years ago that radically and irrevocably changed the future of not only individuals but whole communities and societies.

The Science of Warfare

Threatening displays of power, dangerous close-quarter combat and fights to the death - we find plenty of examples of every variety of combat in the animal kingdom, from innocent skirmishes through seriously bloody clashes. In the interest of survival, animals must also take up the gauntlet against other members of their species and predators that have targeted them as prey. Whether it is attack or defense, they can only rely on their abilities and inventiveness in this eternal war. Alone or through unified force, with fearsome weapons, tricky tactics and maneuvers of guile, they can triumph over their enemies. Warfare is risky and the stakes are great - usually, it's winner take all. 

Why do animals fight with one another? Which one of their characteristics elevate them to victory? Is it even worth entering combat, or is peace a better idea? In the first volume of the Masters of the Animal Kingdom series, we seek the answer to these and similarly exciting questions. 3...2...1... Let the battle commence!
