Works of art have often been endowed by their audience with talismanic force. Their impact exceeds the visual impression they make. This seems natural enough when we consider the fact that the most ambitious works of art produced by ancient civilizations were religious. To those who originally encountered them, they seemed to speak directly from the gods. Their makers were very seldom recorded, though the names of those who ordered them to be made - pharaohs, emperors and kings - quite frequently survive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Carper.

Following the successful landings in Normandy on D-Day and consolidation during Operation Cobra , the Wehrmacht was ordered to begin a counter-offensive named Operation Lüttich . The plan was to send a large Panzer force across the First US Army sector, cutting off its spearheads, and finally reach Avranches on the coast. Had this succeeded, it not only would have cut off the First US Army spearheads, but also Patton´s newly deployed Third US Army operating in Brittany. However, thanks to an intercepted radio message, the Allies were well-prepared for the offensive and not only repelled the oncoming panzers, but went on a counter-attack that would lead to a whole German army becoming encircled in the Falaise Pocket. Fully illustrated with stunning full-colour artwork, this book tells the story of Operation Lüttich , the failed offensive which ended any prospect of Germany winning the battle of Normandy.

It´s all in the name: Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! is a hilarious, illustrated guide to this complex functional language. Packed with the author´s original artwork, pop culture references, and most importantly, useful example code, this book teaches functional fundamentals in a way you never thought possible. You´ll start with the kid stuff: basic syntax, recursion, types and type classes. Then once you´ve got the basics down, the real black belt master-class begins: you´ll learn to use applicative functors, monads, zippers, and all the other mythical Haskell constructs you´ve only read about in storybooks. As you work your way through the author´s imaginative (and occasionally insane) examples, you´ll learn to: -Laugh in the face of side effects as you wield purely functional programming techniques -Use the magic of Haskell´s ´´laziness´´ to play with infinite sets of data -Organize your programs by creating your own types, type classes, and modules -Use Haskell´s elegant input/output system to share the genius of your programs with the outside world Short of eating the author´s brain, you will not find a better way to learn this powerful language than reading Learn You a Haskell for Great Good!
