Paths of Armor, first published in 1950, is the account of the historic 5th Armored Division from the time of its formation in October 1941, to the end of the war in May 1945. Because of the secrecy of its missions and the speed at which the men and equipment moved, the Division was also known as "Patton's Ghosts" (the Division was part of Patton's Third Army), and because of its many successes, as the "Victory Division." Following training in the U.S., the Division transferred to England, and landed on Utah Beach in Normandy on July 24, 1944.
Then followed months of combat as the Division moved across northern France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and into Germany. In December 1944, the Division took part in the fierce fighting in the Hurtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge. Included are more than 100 pages of photographs and maps and an appendix with key Division Staff and Unit Citations.

"They're all above me," a young child whispers with awe, as she looks skyward to heaven. Of course she's speaking of angels, those magical guardians that children are irresistibly drawn to. In the next page we see a child climbing a tree and reaching for an alluring bunch of cherries as a watchful angel stands below, arms spread, ready to catch the cherry picker if he falls. "Beneath me, before me," the text continues. Page by page we see children sledding, answering questions in school, catching snowflakes on their tongues, as "my father's" Christian angels stand guard close by. Illustrator Barbara Hranilovich complements this tender text with all the richness it deserves in swirling, vivid pictures, seemingly made from chalk and watercolors. The book comes with a read-along cassette tape narrated by Gloria Gaither. (Ages 4 to 8) --Gail Hudson

This first U.S. publication of Erez Bitton, one of Israel's most celebrated poets, recalls the fate of Moroccan Jewish culture with poems both evocative and pure. Considered the founding father of Mizrahi Israeli poetry, a major tradition in the history of Hebrew poetry, Bitton's bilingual collection dramatically expands the scope of biographical experience and memory, ultimately resurrecting a vanishing world and culture. Preliminary Background Words My mother my mother from a village of shrubs green of a different green. From a bird's nest producing milk sweeter than sweet. From a nightingale's cradle of a thousand Arabian nights. My mother my mother who staved off evil with her middle fingers with beating her chest on behalf of all mothers. My father my father who delved into worlds who sanctified the Sabbath with pure Araq who was most practiced in synagogue traditions.And I— having distanced myself deep into my heart would recite when all were asleep short Bach masses deep into my heart in Jewish- Moroccan. The 2015 recipient of the Israel Prize, Erez Bitton was born in 1942 to Moroccan parents in Oran, Algeria, and emigrated to Israel in 1948. Blinded by a stray hand grenade in Lod, he spent his childhood in Jerusalem's School for the Blind. He is considered the founding father of Mizrahi Israeli poetry in Israel—the first poet to take on the conflict between North African immigrants and the Ashkenazi society, and the first to use Judeo-Arabic dialect in his poetry.
