How an engine works - In detail

Ever since I got my TJ I have become fascinated with cars in general and how they work. I wish I would have taken a automotive class in high school but back then I wasn't interested in cars at all. Now that I have my TJ not only do I enjoy working on it myself, I like learning about it and how everything works. I took a automotive class in college to get a little bit better of an understanding and plan to take many more but for now I am looking for some education on my own and hopefully you guys can help me out.

If you guys/gals have any good writeups with pictures/video or any other info I would gladly appreciate it. I tres googling how an engine works in general and it just gave me a bunch of crappy links to EHow and such. Not only do I want to know how it works but what it is made up of and how the internal parts work together: camshaft, lifters, rocker arms, push rods, valves, crank, ect.

Thank you
