Anne Crow Selected Contributions from the Fifth Glo.ster Gazette 1915 - 1919

This book contains a miscellany of songs, poems, sketches, stories and cartoons, all taken from the first trench newspaper to be printed at the Western Front during the First World War. The extracts have been selected, edited and organised to be a stimulating read, as well as accessible to a modern audience.

The evening would be lively and enjoyable as well as educational, and the book gives plenty of scope for actors and singers to play a valuable part.

John Buchan John Buchan.s 1914. the World at War-The Naval Conflict . Global Campaigns of the Opening Year of the First World War

Over the seas and far away-the world at war In the late summer of 1914, the eyes of the world were fixed upon Europe as seemingly unstoppable German armies simultaneously marched eastwards and westwards subduing nations and forcing their armies to retreat. This was the beginning of an industrial war without precedent which would send shockwaves across the globe. This book, specially compiled by Leonaur's editors from John Buchan's excellent writings on the First World War, concentrates on the world beyond mainland Europe in the early months of the war. Readers will discover the naval battles of Heligoland Bight, Coronel, the Falkland Islands and Dogger Bank as the Imperial German Navy tested its mettle against the might of the Royal Navy. Here are accounts of German naval raiders such as the 'Emden' and the naval bombardments of British seaside towns. German and British colonial and regular troops clashed in East and West Africa and actions were fought on the coast of China and upon remote Pacific Islands. Disaffected Boers rose in rebellion in South Africa and Germany's ally, the Ottoman Turkish Empire joined the fray making advances in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and towards the strategically vital Suez Canal in Egypt. In 1914 this was a conflict far removed from the familiar mud, wire and trenches that have become emblematic of the First World War. This is a highly recommended overview of the world at war created especially to mark the centenary of the ou...

H. F. B. Walker, Arnold Wienholt Narratives of the Great War in Africa. Personal Experiences of Two Soldiers in the East African . South West African Campaigns of the First World War

Two brilliant first hand accounts from the First World War in AfricaThe First World War in Africa has always been a subject of fascination for military historians. It involved regular British and German forces, unique and special corps on both sides, irregular units raised from colonials, Askaris and famous regiments such as the K. A. R. It drew adventurers from all over the world to action including men like F. C Selous and the outstanding German commander von Lettow (both of whom appear in these pages). It was fought in parched deserts and in bush terrain alive with dangerous wildlife. This 'two-in-one' Leonaur special edition will need little explanation to persuade aficionados of this subject that a real treat awaits them. The first account was written by a doctor of the Mounted Brigade Field Ambulance attached to the 3rd Mounted Brigade as part of Botha's German South-West African campaign. This was a mobile 'hit and run' war involving mounted riflemen, burghers of the commandos and, on the German side, the remarkable Camel Corps among others. The second narrative bears an unusual title. It refers to an actual lion hunt (which almost costs the author his life) but also to the German 'lions' of von Lettow's force. The action moves from German South West Africa, through the Okavango to East Africa where the author was employed as a scout, a free ranging intelligence officer waging a guerrilla war in the bush and as a member of the East Afric...

Swansea and District Writers' Circle Unforgotten. The Great War 1914-1918

Today's modern world owes an enormous debt of gratitude to all the many millions who died for our freedom during the First World War, and it is important that we never forget the dreadful violence and horrific loss of life suffered in those years. Unforgotten is a poignant and sometimes humorous collection of World War One poems and short stories told from many different viewpoints. We descendants of the fresh-faced soldiers who perished so we may live our relatively comfortable lives, owe it to each and every one to speak their names and tell stories of them, and others like them.

Frank Herbert Simonds History of the World War

"The World War, entering its thirty-fourth month, as these lines are written, has had three distinct phases, both on the military side and on the larger and more significant human side. The three military phases are supplied by the Marne campaign and its immediate consequences; the Russian campaign, with its Balkan episode and its Verdun ending; the Allied offensive in the west, which began at the Somme in July, 1916, and is still proceeding before Arras and along the old Aisne battlefield.I have striven to make this book an American comment upon a world war, and no one can be more conscious than am I of its limitations." [...]This is the first volume of the five volume series on the history of World War I.This volume describes the events surrounding the beginning of the first world war in France in an impressive and captivating way. With many details and photos of the war events, the reader is taken with at the time of the early 20th century.The author, Frank H. Simonds, was a living witness of the war. He lived from 1878 - 1936.This particular book is an unchanged reprint of the long out of print original edition from 1919.
John Dos Passos Three Soldiers John Dos Passos Three Soldiers Новинка

John Dos Passos Three Soldiers

Wikepedia: Three Soldiers is a 1921 novel by the American writer and critic John Dos Passos. It is one of the key American war novels of the First World War, and remains a classic of the realist war novel genre. The disillusionment John Dos Passos felt for the Great War forms the core of THREE SOLDIERS, which stands as a denunciation of the military and its exploitation of young men. The novel chronicles the wartime experiences of a trio of American privates from different backgrounds: Andrews, a gifted musician and Harvard graduate from New York; Fuselli, a store clerk who hopes to impress a girl back home in San Francisco; and Chrisfield, an easygoing farm boy from Indiana. Recognized as a masterpiece when first published more than seventy-five years ago, THREE SOLDIERS still stands as a testament to the dehumanizing effects of war.

''War and Peace'' in Studio Ghibli Films

This book examines Japanese animation films of Studio Ghibli in terms of war and peace. This research mainly focuses on movies directed by Hayao Miyazaki, a 'Japanese master of animation', who announced his official retirement in September 2013. Through the lens of peace research, the author rediscovered the fact that Miyazaki-related animation films deal with actual wars from the First World War to the 2003 Iraq War. This book investigates the following Studio Ghibli animation movies: 1) Nausica of the Valley of the Wind (1984), 2) Laputa Castle in the Sky (1986), 3) Grave of the Fireflies (1988), 4) Porco Rosso (1992), 5) Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), and 6) The Wind Rises (2013). From a perspective of peace research and international relations, this study analyzes the relevance of the films to the First World War, the Second World War, the Cold War, the War on Terror, as well as some nuclear related issues in the post-3/11 context. Moreover, this book explores the implications of the case studies for peace education so that Studio Ghibli films can be watched as sources for creating the ‘defences of peace’ inside the hearts of audience around the world.

Published in 1985 in Russia and now available in English for the first time, The Unwomanly Face of War was Alexievich's first book and a huge bestseller in the Soviet Union, establishing her as a brilliantly revolutionary writer.

War and Literature. Looking Back on 20th Century Armed Conflicts.

This comprehensive volume analyzes the radical change in the nature of armed conflicts and in the way they are narrated and represented. Ever since the First World War has changed war itself, rendering meaningless the very vocabulary of war in terms such as "battle", "front", "non-combatant", "open city" and "hero", new words, new approaches, new theories and new texts had to be invented. The enemy became invisible: Submarines, tanks, mines, gas, long-range artillery, and airplanes made this war different from all the other that came before. A hundred years after the beginning of this terrible war, it is now time to recall different representations of the armed conflicts of the 20th century. The articles in this collection analyze representations of the Canudos Civil War in Brazil, the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the colonial wars in Africa, and the war in Afghanistan, aiming to understand how war and the telling of war have changed during the most murderous hundred years in the history of mankind.

Walter Wood The Sharp End of War. 42 Accounts of the Early Battles of the First World War by Allied Soldiers . Sailors

Words from the firing lineSir Walter Wood was well known for his anthologies of descriptions and personal accounts of military experiences and other deeds that forged the British Empire. The outbreak of the First World War in the summer of 1914 provided him with an enormous resource of material which he gleaned from interviews with British soldiers and sailors returning from the battlefield. During the first two years of the conflict Wood collected, and published in two volumes, forty two gripping accounts, from both officers and men-including cavalrymen, infantrymen, engineers, dispatch riders, artillerymen and a host of others who were engaged in the fighting. 'In the Line of Battle,' he concentrated on the opening campaigns of the war, including the retreat from Mons, the battles of the Marne and Aisne to the First Battle of Ypres, and included first hand accounts of early naval engagements and the German naval raid on Hartlepool. 'Soldiers Stories of the War,' mainly covered the campaigns of 1915 on the Western Front, but also included the Dardanelles expedition. This unique, good value Leonaur edition, published to coincide with the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War, brings together the full content of both books in one substantial edition. Absolutely nothing can compare with the words of those recounting their very recent experiences and in this edition, those voices reach across time to provide powerful, poignant and revealing insights into the...

John Buchan John Buchan.s 1914. the War in the East-the First Months of the First World War on the Eastern Front-June to December 1914

The outbreak of the great war on the Eastern FrontThe Great War broke out in 1914. For those who live in the western world impressions of that catastrophic conflict are, perhaps inevitably, inspired by images of the Western Front with its 'No Man's Land' of mud and miles of trenches fringed with barbed wire. Although the soldiers who struggled in France and Belgium were northern Europeans, British and Empire soldiers and later in the war, Americans, this was a truly world war fought from Asia to Africa, and, of course, in Eastern Europe where the spark that ignited the conflagration first burst into life. John Buchan's writings on the opening stages of the First World War have been compiled by the Leonaur Editors into a comprehensive three volume set. This volume concerns a conflict little known or understood by many English speaking people though it describes the collision of mighty armies, momentous battles such as Tannenburg, and campaigns which swept over enormous tracts of land. In 1914 on the Eastern Front, German and Austro-Hungarian forces engaged with the might of Imperial Russia and the armies of the Balkan states. This final book of 'John Buchan's 1914' trilogy is essential reading for all those requiring a complete understanding of how the world went to war a century ago. Buchan's incisive narrative has been enhanced by the inclusion of photographs, diagrams and maps not present in the original text.Leonaur editions are newly typese...

A lively, engaging history of The Great War written for a new generation of readers In recent years, scholarship on World War I has turned from a fairly narrow focus on military tactics, weaponry, and diplomacy to incorporate considerations of empire, globalism, and social and cultural history. This concise history of the first modern, global war helps to further broaden the focus typically provided in World War I surveys by challenging popular myths and stereotypes to provide a new, engaging account of The Great War. The conventional World War I narrative that has evolved over the past century is that of an inevitable but useless war, where men were needlessly slaughtered due to poor decisions by hidebound officers. This characterization developed out of a narrow focus on the Western Front promulgated mainly by British historians. In this book, Professor Proctor provides a broader, more multifaceted historical narrative including perspectives from other fronts and spheres of interest and a wider range of participants. She also draws on recent scholarship to consider the gendered aspect of war and the ways in which social class, religion, and cultural factors shaped experiences and memories of the war. Structured chronologically to help convey a sense of how the conflict evolved Each chapter considers a key interpretive question, encouraging readers to examine the extent to which the war was total, modern, and global Challenges outdated stereotypes created through a focus on the Western Front Considers the war in light of recent scholarship on empire, global history, gender, and culture Explores ways in which the war and the terms of peace shaped the course of the 20th century World War I: A Short History is sure to become required reading in undergraduate survey courses on WWI, as well as courses in military history, the 20th century world, or the era of the World Wars.

Brian Hennessy, Karen McMillan From the Blitz to the Burmese Jungle and Beyond. A World War II memoir by Brian Hennessy

One man’s memoir of World War II, which took him from the Blitz to the jungles of Burma, to the devastation of Hiroshima.‘I consider myself lucky to have survived the global carnage still myself – a reluctant soldier who had to go to war, who only ever wanted peace for everyone.’ —Brian HennessyBrian immigrated to New Zealand after the war and lived there until his death aged ninety-two, but he never forgot his extraordinary war adventures.Born in Germany to English parents, he came from a family that served in the army. He was seventeen years old and living in London when war broke out, and he experienced the Blitz first-hand. Brian joined the British Army and became the youngest armament artificer. What followed was a true adventure story, as Brian journeyed via South Africa to India and the remote jungles of Burma. Danger was always present, and his narrative is sometimes humorous, at other times poignant. At the end of the war, he went to Japan and saw first-hand the devastation at Hiroshima.This is his story, a sweeping journey through the landscape of war and far more fascinating and exciting than any fiction.

Before the First World War, Lloyd George moved from being the leading Nonconformist Welsh Radical in to being a highly effective Radical minister, providing imaginative solutions to social welfare and free trade finance. His emergence as a key figure on the Left occurred as the Labour Party developed as a contender for mining and industrial seats. With the First World War Lloyd George built on his pre-war reputation as a minister who could successfully resolve industrial conflict. He was the key production minister at Munitions in 1915-16 and continued to resolve industrial disputes as Prime Minister. Wrigley demonstrates that Lloyd George was moulded by Liberalism and, as a solicitor, admired business people even if he was a vehement critic of landowners. Highly sympathetic to poor people and unorganised labour, he was not trade union minded.

Quartz crystal-a technology that changed the tide of World War II Some of the defining leaps in technology in the twentieth century occurred during the Second World War, from radar to nuclear energy. Often left out of historical discussions are quartz crystals, which proved to be just as pivotal to the Allied victory-and to post-war development-as other technologies. Quartz crystals provided the U.S. military, for the first time, with reliable communication on the front lines, and then went on to become the core of some of the most basic devices of the post-war era, from watches, clocks, and color televisions, to cell phones and computers. In Crystal Clear, Richard Thompson relates the story of the quartz crystal in World War II, from its early days as a curiosity for amateur radio enthusiasts, to its use by the United States Armed Forces. It follows the intrepid group of scientists and engineers from the Office of the Chief Signal Officer of the U.S. Army as they raced to create an effective quartz crystal unit. They had to find a reliable supply of radio-quality quartz; devise methods to reach, mine, and transport the quartz; find a way to manufacture quartz crystal oscillators rapidly; and then solve the puzzling «aging problem» that plagued the early units. Ultimately, the development of quartz oscillators became the second largest scientific undertaking in World War II after the Manhattan Project. Bringing to light a little-known aspect of World War II, Crystal Clear offers a glimpse inside one of the most significant efforts in the annals of engineering.

Frederick Mortimer Clapp A History of the 17th Aero Squadron. An American Squadron on the Western Front During the First World War

Episodes from the United States first war in the airThe United States of America joined the Allies in the First World War in April of 1917. While the addition of its enormous resource of men and military personnel was undoubtedly pivotal in a war that had become one of attrition against a much war weakened enemy which was struggling alone, it was inevitable that the history of the American units engaged on land, sea or in the air would concern the latter battles of the conflict. For the airmen themselves, including those of the American 17th Aero Squadron whose exploits this book details, that made far less difference than it would to most military personnel. The air war was new, the flying machines were flimsy and primitive and the business of fighting in the skies was being defined by the young men who fought and died above the surface of the earth. All knew that the life of a pilot was perilous and likely to be short. This is an essential book for those interested in the First World War in the skies over the Western Front-and in the early days of what was to become one of the greatest air forces in the world. Many of the activities of the 17th Aero Squadron were focussed on the Dunkirk front and in its support of the British battle and advances during the fighting at Cambrai. The book includes an interesting view of a low bombing and machine gun attack on the Varssenaere Aerodrome. Also included are many combat reports by the squadron's pilots and these make fascinatin...

Tom Absher The Paper Rose

This carefully organized collection leads the reader via poems closely linked by theme, subject, attitude, and metaphor into a gripping, moving, masterfully assembled, deeply meaningful and satisfying story. One poem says, "Sadness,remember the sadness/in the world, in other people." It's what The Paper Rose does; it remembers. This book is a sacred mass sung in the presence of sadness. David Budbill In this new collection of poems by Tom Absher, one poem speaks and the next answers until, the reader observes, the entire collection is in dialogue with itself. The stories told reflect the inexplicable drama of how human beings live and die in the world: parents, a country at war, a best friend's death at sixteen; as seen through a boy's eyes; then the boy grows up, looks back and the long view reveals to him who he was then and who he is now. The mature poet has much to say of love and forgiveness in these poems of tender regard. Nadell Fishman Part reverie, part story, part song, The Paper Rose opens itself from the first page. Beginning with a child's view of World War II, these poems navigate the seen and unseen world. Filled with hard-earned and startling detail, the poems are gorgeous, haunting, unapologetically personal, and unequivocally universal. Tom Absher is a master in full stride, in full voice. David Rees The Paper Rose is the work of an acolyte to the mysteries of worlds - those we each touch daily and those that move behind the veils of ...

Arthur Cole Poems for a Lost Generation

I was introduced to World War One poetry in the early 60's by my then English Literature teacher Mr David John, who is sadly now deceased. Mr John was a young teacher at the time, with new ways of getting students to enjoy literature through history, hence the First World War. He introduced us to the war poets like Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Rupert Brooke, amongst others. Mr John made our lessons interesting and many of us questioned the futility of the war, even though we were so young. I left school at sixteen and then began my working career and later married life, so I didn't do anything with regard to poetry, however I still took an interest in World War One documentaries. It wasn't until I retired that I toyed with the idea of writing war poetry. I wrote my first war poem at the beginning of 2016, entitled 'War Horse' and my writing has just developed from there, resulting in the publication of this book. We must never forget the sacrifices that were made in this war of all wars, on both sides. Many young men thought it was just a game of war, how wrong they were. I hope the book does justice to those who fought and survived and those who sadly never returned to their families, many of whom are buried in far foreign fields. May they all Rest In Peace.

Arthur Arthur Brown Ruhl An Eye in the Storm. An American War Correspondent.s Experiences of the First World War from the Western Front to Gallipoli-And Beyond

A singular view of the Great War on many fronts At the outbreak of the First World War the United States of America was a neutral power. This gave its journalists the opportunity to visit the various war fronts with a freedom to view campaigns from all perspectives and with impartiality from the lines of several of the combatant armies. War Correspondent Arthur Ruhl dropped his fishing rod, jumped on a steamer and arrived in Europe in time to witness, from the viewpoint of the invaded, the overwhelming might of the Imperial German Army as it bore down on Belgium. He experienced the chaos as France feared for its imminent fall, and the fall of Antwerp before crossing the lines to see the war from the perspective of an elated Germany. Experiences of the German front line were followed by a journey to the east as news broke of Winston Churchill's Dardanelles adventure. After coming under fire in company with Turkish troops at Gallipoli, Ruhl concluded his tour of the maelstrom that was the Great War on the Russian Front. Ruhl's was 'an eye in the storm'-a view of a war not his own by a professional writer-making it a unique, engrossing and multi-faceted narrative of some of the most momentous events in the history of human conflict.

John Buchan John Buchan.s 1914. the War in the West-the First Months of the First World War on the Western Front-June to December 1914

A unique Leonaur edition-never before available in this formJohn Buchan was a popular author of historical and adventure fiction whose works remain in print to the present day. He also wrote important works of non-fiction that are less well remembered. Among these was a commissioned, multi-volume history of the First World War that was so well regarded that it became a source-work for other historians. This Leonaur Original, drawn from Buchan's history, and including many maps, battle plans, photographs and illustrations, has been published to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War on the Western Front as overwhelming German forces swept through Belgium and France. This was a mobile war-much like the wars fought in Europe for hundreds of years-of marching infantry and cavalry armed with lances and swords. The battle at Mons, the dogged retreat of the 'Contemptible Little Army' of the B. E. F., the incredible resistance of the out-dated Belgian Forces, the battles of the Marne and Aisne as the tide turned, and the carnage of the First Battle of Ypres as the war became a stalemate of wire, mud and trenches at the close of the year, are all covered in Buchan's brilliant take on just six months of war in 1914.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Aurelio M. Espinosa The Folklore of Spain in the American Southwest. Traditional Spanish Folk Literature in Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado

The region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado holds a unique place in the world of Spanish folk literature. Isolated from the rest of the Spanish-speaking world for most of its history since its first settlement in 1598, it has retained, even into our own time, much of its Hispanic folkloric heritage from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries-ballads, songs, poems, folktales, sayings, anecdotes, proverbs, riddles, and folk drama.In this book, written in the late 1930s and never before published, Aurelio M. Espinosa, New Mexico's pioneer folklorist, presents the first comprehensive, authoritative account of the relict folklore, bringing together the results of his collecting during the first third of this century, in the Southwest and in Spain, and his many ground-breaking scholarly studies.

Elaine Sterne The U. S. Navy at War. Personal Accounts of 15 American Seamen, Women . Marines During the First World War

The First World War at sea by Americans who fought in itIt's easy to understand why this book was originally published under the jingoistic title of 'Over the Seas for Uncle Sam'-perhaps edited by rather than 'written' by Elaine Sterne-for when it was written the subject was nothing less than reportage. The passage of time provides new perspectives on works such as this, and for that reason we have changed the title to alert readers to the unique nature of the content. Sterne's book contains fifteen first hand accounts by those serving in the United States Navy in the first American conflict of the modern age on a global stage. The United States entry into the First World War in April, 1917, (particularly in terms of it's immediately engaged naval contribution) was pivotal, if not essential. The Allied war effort was being strangled for want of materials as a result of the German U-Boat successes against merchant shipping, especially in the Atlantic Ocean. These accounts by serving men and women in the U. S Navy-including contributions by marines-are mainly from the enlisted ranks, with a few from officers. They are told in 'their own words,' and enable the modern student of the period to read of the experiences of those service men and women whose voices-in the absence of a work such as this-would have been forever lost to posterity.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback...

It saw the US military rapidly expand from a second-rate force to a world-class fighting force. It would become a defining moment for the United States, its military, and its citizens.

Arthur Anderson Martin, H. S. Souttar Faithful in Adversity. The Experiences of Two Army Surgeons During the First World War-A Surgeon in Khaki by Arthur Anderson Martin . a Surge

The war of the medical menThis book stands out as distinctive and different among the many other books being published in the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War, most of which will concentrate on the tumultuous battles of the period. This was war that embraced virtually the whole planet, involved all the people of the combatant nations and employed every resource, knowledge and skill in the war effort. Leonaur intends to recognise the contributions of all people-men or women, soldiers or civilian volunteers, on the battle front or the home front-who were involved in the Great War, and is releasing material covering subjects that may well be absent from the catalogues of most other publishers. Today we take for granted the expert medical staff who support our armed services, but at the time of the First World War, only 50 or so years had elapsed since her concern about terrible conditions in the Crimea brought Florence Nightingale to public notice, and where a wound was a death sentence and disease killed more men than enemy fire. In the Great War, Army surgeons had to cope with tremendous workloads when the weapons of the industrial age inflicted ghastly injuries as they scythed down men in their thousands. This book contains two first-hand accounts-brought together for interest and good value-by British military surgeons, who risked their own lives to save others.

Francis W. Halsey The Literary Digest History of the World War, Vol. III (in Ten Volumes, Illustrated). Compiled from Original and Contemporary Sources: American, Briti

The quantity of journalism produced during World War I was unlike anything the then-budding mass media had ever seen. Correspondents at the front were dispatching voluminous reports on a daily basis, and though much of it was subject to censorship, it all eventually became available. It remains the most extraordinary firsthand look at the war that we have.Published immediately after the cessation of hostilities and compiled from those original journalistic sources-American, British, French, German, and others-this is an astonishing contemporary perspective on the Great War. This replica of the first 1919 edition includes all the original maps, photos, and illustrations, lending an even greater immediacy to readers a century later.Volume III covers July 1915 through May 1917 on the Western Front, from the first major Allied offensive to the German assault on Verdun and the Allied drive on the Somme.American journalist and historian FRANCIS WHITING HALSEY (1851-1919) was literary editor of The New York Times from 1892 through 1896. He wrote and lectured extensively on history; his works include, as editor, the two-volume Great Epochs in American History Described by Famous Writers, From Columbus to Roosevelt (1912), and, as writer, the 10-volume Seeing Europe with Famous Authors (1914).

Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore Sparks Off the Main Strike / Poems

In all the poems of a poet's work there's the impulse to get to the bottom of things, to the original energy pulse, the first cause as it manifests in the present tense, the spark off the main strike. As always, the title came to me first, and the poems followed, some faithful some astray from the theme, but always rebounding back again to resonate with that original strike, in these scattered sparks.

Frederic C. Curry, Louis Keene The 1st Canadians at War. Two Accounts of the First Canadian Division in the Great War

From the St. Lawrence to the Yser With the 1st Canadian Brigadeby Frederic C. Curry"Crumps"-the Plain Story of a Canadian Who Wentby Louis KeenTwo first hand accounts in one value editionWhen the First World War broke out, the view of the British Empire by those who built it, colonised it and spread its influence over the globe was that of a strong closely bonded family held together by common origin and purpose. There could be little doubt that the peoples of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other countries would quickly rally to a flag they considered their own as readily as they had done in the past-particularly during the war in South Africa just a decade and a half previously. These young, enthusiastic, mostly citizen armies were comprised in the main of the flower of the country's young manhood. In Canada these first came from the members of the Canadian Militia, though such was the demand to 'do ones bit' that this was quickly absorbed by quantities of volunteers from the community at large eager to take up arms in the service of the 'mother country.' These two first accounts concern men of the First Canadians who join, train, sail to Europe and throw themselves into the early battles with the German Army in Belgium and France. They make absorbing reading as perspectives of the infantry war from the Canadian viewpoint and represent great value in this special two-in-one edition.

Brendan Gillespie World War I in the Middle East. How the Allied campaigns in the Sinai and Palestine rebuked the popular definitions of World War I era warfare

Document from the year 2016 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Ages of World Wars, grade: A, The Ohio State University, language: English, abstract: World War I is most often explained in the context of how it was the terminal turning point in how warfare was waged, namely that World War I was when the weapons of industrial powers outpaced the type of head-on collision of massive numbers of men that had been the preemptive military strategy for millennia. This paper does not attempt to dispute this argument, instead it argues that while World War I was undoubtedly "a war that changed war", there was a campaign waged between major powers in World War I that can be deemed "traditional" in the sense that men and their actions decided the fate and outcome, versus the manufactured warfare fought elsewhere, especially the western front in Europe. This campaign was the war waged in the Middle East between the British and the Ottoman Turks over the contested territory of Palestine, which may well have been one of the last "traditional" campaigns fought on this Earth.By using primary sources from World War I and more contemporary material, this paper will compare how drastically different the Palestine campaign was compared to how people view World War I in popular memory. World War I often gets "squeezed" into an easy definition that can explain a truly "world" war. It is important for historians, students of history, and everyda...

A lively, engaging history of The Great War written for a new generation of readers In recent years, scholarship on World War I has turned from a fairly narrow focus on military tactics, weaponry, and diplomacy to incorporate considerations of empire, globalism, and social and cultural history. This concise history of the first modern, global war helps to further broaden the focus typically provided in World War I surveys by challenging popular myths and stereotypes to provide a new, engaging account of The Great War. The conventional World War I narrative that has evolved over the past century is that of an inevitable but useless war, where men were needlessly slaughtered due to poor decisions by hidebound officers. This characterization developed out of a narrow focus on the Western Front promulgated mainly by British historians. In this book, Professor Proctor provides a broader, more multifaceted historical narrative including perspectives from other fronts and spheres of interest and a wider range of participants. She also draws on recent scholarship to consider the gendered aspect of war and the ways in which social class, religion, and cultural factors shaped experiences and memories of the war. Structured chronologically to help convey a sense of how the conflict evolved Each chapter considers a key interpretive question, encouraging readers to examine the extent to which the war was total, modern, and global Challenges outdated stereotypes created through a focus on the Western Front Considers the war in light of recent scholarship on empire, global history, gender, and culture Explores ways in which the war and the terms of peace shaped the course of the 20th century World War I: A Short History is sure to become required reading in undergraduate survey courses on WWI, as well as courses in military history, the 20th century world, or the era of the World Wars.
