America and the Great War

From August 1914 through March 1917, Americans were increasingly horrified at theunprecedented destruction of the First World War. While sending massive assistance tothe conflict’s victims, most Americans opposed direct involvement. Their country wasimmersed in its own internal struggles, including attempts to curb the power ofbusiness monopolies, reform labor practices, secure proper treatment for millions ofrecent immigrants, and expand American democracy.Yet from the first, the war deeply affected American emotions and the nation’scommercial, financial, and political interests. The menace from German U-boats andfailure of U.S. attempts at mediation finally led to a declaration of war, signed byPresident Wilson on April 6, 1917.America and the Great War commemorates the centennial of that turning point inAmerican history. Chronicling the United States in neutrality and in conflict, it presentsevents and arguments, political and military battles, bitter tragedies and epicachievements that marked U.S. involvement in the first modern war. Drawing on thematchless resources of the Library of Congress, the book includes many eyewitnessaccounts and more than 250 color and black-and-white images, many never beforepublished.With an introduction by Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David M. Kennedy, America andthe Great War brings to life the tempestuous era from which the United States emergedas a major world power.

Northern Armageddon america and the great war Northern Armageddon america and the great war

Northern Armageddon

In Northern Armageddon, Peter MacLeod, curator of the Canadian War Museum--using original research (diaries, journals, letters, and other personal accounts) and bringing to bear all of his knowledge and grasp of warfare and in particular the French and Indian War--tells the epic story from both sides and, for the first time, brilliantly casts this crucial battle on a human scale, from the first months of the campaign and the actual battle on the Plains of Abraham, to the French surrender and its large-scale ramifications on the shape of North America and, ultimately, Europe.The battle, which lasted twenty minutes, left both generals leading their troops --James Wolfe and the Marquis Louis-Joseph Montcalm--each dead of gunshot wounds. It was the culmination of a larger imperial conflict between Great Britain and France that began five years before and would change the course of a continent. France surrendered Quebec and the British soon after took control of most of North America. The participation of the American Colonists in helping to oust the French as a North American power, and bearing the burden of the war's expenses, spurred the confidence of colonies such as New York, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts that soon began to agitate for independence from Great Britain. MacLeod gives us the large-scale ramifications of this clash of armies, not only on the shape of North America, but on the history of Europe itself.

The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914

During the fateful quarter century leading up to World War I, the climax of a century of rapid, unprecedented change, a privileged few enjoyed Olympian luxury as the underclass was "heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate." In The Proud Tower, Barbara W. Tuchman brings the era to vivid life: the decline of the Edwardian aristocracy; the Anarchists of Europe and America; Germany and its self-depicted hero, Richard Strauss; Diaghilev’s Russian ballet and Stravinsky’s music; the Dreyfus Affair; the Peace Conferences in The Hague; and the enthusiasm and tragedy of Socialism, epitomized by the assassination of Jean Jaures on the night the Great War began and an epoch came to a close.

On War

"On War" is perhaps the greatest book ever written about war. Carl von Clausewitz, a Prussian soldier, had witnessed at first hand the immense destructive power of the French Revolutionary armies which swept across Europe between 1792 and 1815. His response 'was to write a comprehensive text covering every aspect of warfare. "On War" is both a philosophical and practical work in which Clausewitz defines the essential nature of war, debates the qualities of the great commander, assesses the relative strengths of defensive and offensive warfare, and - in highly controversial passages - considers the relationship between war and politics. His arguments are illustrated with vivid examples drawn from the campaigns of Frederick the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte. For the student of society as well as the military historian, "On War" remains a compelling and indispensable source.

Railways of the Great War with Michael Portillo

From the exploits of railwaymen at the Front to the secrets of railway spies who worked behind enemy lines; the manufacture of munitions in railway workshops to the role of railways in post-war remembrance – this book explores some of the remarkable stories of the railway war. Individually, each illuminates a different aspect of the conflict. Taken together, they provide us with a fresh perspective on the First World War as a whole. The Great War was the quintessential railway war. Railways helped to precipitate this mechanized conflict: they defined how it was fought and kept the home front moving; they conveyed millions to the trenches and evacuated the huge numbers of wounded. The railways sustained a terrible war of attrition and, ultimately, bore witness to its end. In Railways of the Great War, Michael Portillo and Colette Hooper tell the forgotten story of the war on the tracks and explore the numerous ways in which Britain’s locomotives, railway companies and skilled railway workforce moulded the course of the conflict. From mobilizing men and moving weapons, to transporting food for troops and later taking grieving relatives to the battlefields on which their loved ones had fallen, the railways played a central role throughout this turbulent period in our history.

Perfidia america and the great war Perfidia america and the great war

Perfidia

It is December 6 1941. America stands at the brink of World War II. Last hopes for peace are shattered when Japanese squadrons bomb Pearl Harbor. Los Angeles has been a haven for loyal Japanese-Americans – but now, war fever and race hate grip the city and the Japanese internment begins. The hellish murder of a Japanese family summons three men and one woman. William H. Parker is a captain on the Los Angeles Police. He’s superbly gifted, corrosively ambitious, liquored-up and consumed by dubious ideology. He is bitterly at odds with Sergeant Dudley Smith – Irish emigre, ex-IRA killer, fledgling war profiteer. Kay Lake is a 21-year-old dilettante looking for adventure. Hideo Ashida is a police chemist and the only Japanese on the L.A. cop payroll. The investigation throws them together and rips them apart. The crime becomes a political storm centre that brilliantly illuminates these four driven souls – comrades, rivals, lovers, history’s pawns. Perfidia is a novel of astonishments. It is World War II as you have never seen it, and Los Angeles as James Ellroy has never written it before. Here, he gives us the party at the edge of the abyss and the precipice of America’s ascendance. Perfidia is that moment, spellbindingly captured. It beckons us to solve a great crime that, in its turn, explicates the crime of war itself. It is a great American novel.
