Black '41 opens with the arrival of the class of 1941 at the gates of West Point in the spring of 1937. It follows that class---nicknamed "Black '41" for their misdeeds while at the Academy---over the course of the next four years, as they absorb the lessons that will help them become military leaders. Their cadet days provide the backdrop for the ominous events in a world headed toward war. It would be a war, as Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson underscored in his commencement address to the class in June 1941, that "may fall, in large measure, upon your shoulders." The U.S. Army into which those new graduating second lieutenants were commissioned in 1941 was in many ways a holdover from the army of an earlier era, with plenty of cavalry but without a single armoured division. Black '41 became a key part of the new army, quickly transitioning to a mechanized force and growing its air arm. By the time of the major Pacific and European action, Black '41's officers were captains and majors, and leading soldiers into some of the critical fighting in the war. Told largely through the words of the graduates, Black '41 is the coming-of-age story of West Point's finest, during the hour of America's greatest need.

Blair Mountain War - 2826680466

Blair Mountain War Woodland Press, LLC

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A brand new title, The Blair Mountain War: Battle of the Rednecks, tells the true story of the Blair Mountain War, the largest organized armed uprising in US labor history and led almost directly to the national labor laws currently in effect. The title's release comes at a time of controversy surrounding Blair Mountain as state officials ask the National Parks Service to remove the mountain from the National Register of Historic Places. This is on the heels of the historic mountain just being named to the National Register last month, on Monday, March 30th. Objectors seem to be a coordinated campaign by landowning and coal companies that are gathering signatures of property holders to oppose the nomination. "The Blair Mountain War: Battle of the Rednecks is a reprinting of the writings of George T. Swain," said Keith Davis, of Woodland Press, publishers of the title, "and it has great historic significance to southern West Virginia. It will certainly appeal to all lovers of history." At the time of this original manuscript, written in 1927, Swain was a reporter for the county newspaper, The Logan County Banner, in Logan. Here Swain paints a vivid picture, in his most unique style, of West Virginia in bygone days. Here he documents the accounts surrounding the 1921 Blair Mountain War and the struggle between state coal miners, calling themselves "rednecks", and the people of Logan. Granted, Swain was a staunch supporter of the controversial and powerful Logan County Sheriff Don Chafin at the time of this writing, so his particular take on the mine war is from that perspective. When he describes Logan County miners in this manuscript, he portrays them as being largely content and well-treated by mine operators. Yet, the truth was that there was a great deal of discontent in the Logan coalfields in 1921. As the late state historian Robert Y. Spence once wrote: "There was the resentment of difficult work for little pay. There was resentment caused by the mine owners' refusal to negotiate with the miners' union. Most of all, there was resentment of the attitude the mine owners had for the men who worked underground supporting the owners' way of living." Sheriff Chafin and mine operators within the county were defiant over and opposed to the unionization of the Logan field. For this, and for other related events that took place in the state, tensions escalated and, eventually, war ensued. It's been written that the result of this battle at Blair Mountain marked a turning point in the national movement to better the conditions of working people by demanding the legalization of unions. It was the largest armed labor confrontation in U.S. history. To this day, the Blair Mountain War stands as a powerful symbol for workers, even though Swain wearily concludes that the battle was a "foolhardy undertaking". "For historic purposes, this volume has great importance," Davis added, "and it specifically describes what was happening in the City of Logan, and throughout the county, after the miners' march began. Supporters rallied to Logan's defense at the time, and, eventually, federal troops were sent into the city by US President Warren Harding. This bit of West Virginia has national significance." The West Virginia State Archives stated that the mine wars have demonstrated the inability of the state and federal governments to defuse the situations short of initiating armed intervention. Regardless, the details behind The Blair Mountain War remain fascinating and controversial. True American history, The Battle of Blair Mountain is a fascinating account.

After Hitler John Murray Publishers Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

On 30 April 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide. The following day, his propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels also killed himself and the crumbling Third Reich passed to Admiral Karl Donitz. The Nazis' position seemed hopeless. Yet remarkably, the war in the rest of Europe went on for another ten days. After Hitler looks at these days as a narrative day-by-day countdown but also as a broader global history of a European war that had seen some of the most savage battles in history. Relations between the 'Big Three' - the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union - suddenly plunged to near breaking point. This book reveals that tumultuous story. After Hitler also looks at the wider canvas of the war and the terrible humanitarian catastrophe uncovered in Europe. It describes those who felt the joy of freedom, but also those who faced a highly uncertain future. As Red Army soldiers joined forces with their British and American allies, Stalin's East finally came face to face with Churchill's and Truman's West. After Hitler tells of their growing mistrust, but also of moments of remarkable goodwill and co-operation - the brief but poignant hope that these great nations could together fashion a new and safer future. This is a fascinating exploration of the brief but crucial period that shaped the emerging post-war world.

Civil War Through the Eyes of LT Col John Withers and His Wife, Anita Dwyer Withers Diamond Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Eyewitness accounts of the American Civil War, told through the viewpoints of a Confederate husband and wife. Providing a unique perspective on the American Civil War, this book weaves together the diaries of Lt. Col. John Withers, an Assistant Adjutant General for Jefferson Davis, and his wife, Anita Dwyer Withers. Reports of battles fought meld with domestic life in these journals, creating a multi-dimensional picture of the Withers' lives together during the "War Between the States." Jointly, their diaries encompass the entire length of the Civil War; from May 1860 - September 1865. A West Point graduate, John Withers served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Anita Dwyer Withers was the daughter of a distinguished citizen of San Antonio, Texas. In September 1860, Withers was ordered to Washington, D.C., and assigned duty as an Assistant in the Adjutant-General's office. As Anita was very close to her family in Texas, she was deeply troubled by the move. She wrote, "I regret it mightily." In Washington, John served under General Samuel Cooper's command until March, 1861, when he resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and came south to join the Confederate cause. Because of the nature of his job in the Confederate capitol of Richmond, Lt. Col. Withers and his wife were closely acquainted with many of the notable figures of Civil War history, including Jefferson Davis, his wife, Varina Davis, and the Secretary of War. John and Anita recorded Civil War events as they happened, including the Seven Days Battles. Each also wrote of the more personal aspects of their lives, such as Anita's near fatal illness and the agony of their young son's death. Lt. Col. John Withers and Anita were ordinary people living in extraordinary times. Their story is timeless, and well worth being remembered.
