Третий роман также был отмечен вниманием критики, а его сюжет лег в основу сценария фильма "Направление главного удара" из знаменитой киноэпопеи "Освобождение". Основное действие романа разворачивается в 1944 году в Белоруссии, сильнее всего пострадавшей во время фашистской оккупации. Генерал Серпилин, талантливый военачальник, прошедший все круги ада войны, ведет в бой стотысячную армию и успешно завершает разгром Бобруйской и Минской группировок противника...

Unlike appreciating America's other natural wonders such as waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, or prairies, one must struggle to absorb, assimilate, and comprehend the Grand Canyon's tremendous scale. Captured here in over 250 vintage images is the human drama of survival and coexistence in the canyon, from the native tribes who struggled with life on the rim, to the pioneers who came to foster and manipulate the early tourist industry in America's oldest natural resource. Covering the tribes that called the canyon home and the seekers who flocked to the area to find their fortune in gold and tourism, author Kenneth Shields exposes the human layers so often overlooked. Seen here are the native tribes who survived the harshest conditions of the canyon, including the Hopi, Havasupai, Navajo, and Paiute.
Readers will recognize the images of popular tourist spots like the El Tovar Hotel and the Navajo Bridge, as well as the early conservationist faces of Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft.
