The Secret Battle: A tragedy of the First World War

. A. P. Herbet

The Secret Battle: A tragedy of the First World War by . A. P. HerbetIn The Secret Battle A. P. Herbert tells the story of an idealistic, young officer called Harry Penrose. First in Gallipoli, then in the trenches of France, he is tested and brought to breaking point as he battles to retain the ideals of military glory, duty and courage amidst the daily grinding miseries of the trenches. It lays bare the real horrors of the First World War without melodrama, or sensationalism. The author tells his tale not with indignant protest, but with a sad resignation making this a haunting and deeply moving book. Despite the glowing accolades it would later receive, when...

Summary of Tribe by Sebastian Junger | Includes Analysis

Preview:

Tribe by Sebastian Junger is a scientific and journalistic consideration of the correlation between societies with egalitarian tribal structures and low rates of mental illness, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in soldiers returning home.

The sense of tribal belonging was documented in the eighteenth century among settlers in North America, who often joined Native American tribes even after those tribes held them as prisoners or waged war against the settlers. Those tribes were particularly egalitarian in nature,...

The Auckland Regiment

2/Lieut. O. E. Burton

The Auckland Regiment by 2/Lieut. O. E. BurtonA good general history of a regiment raised in one of New Zealand's largest cities to take part in the Great War. The author - who won the Military Medal and the French Medaille D'Honneur for his military exploits, - has written a fluent and readable account. The three battalions of the Auckland Regiment trained in Egypt for the coming Gallipoli campaign in 1915. They assembled at Lemnos, took part in the landing and fighting at Cape Helles and Sari Bair, sustaining severe losses, and were then evacuated back to Egypt. They were first stationed at Armentieres, before seeing action on the Somme...

9th Heavy Battery R.G.A.: 1914-1919

9th Heavy Battery R. G. A.

9th Heavy Battery R.G.A.: 1914-1919 by 9th Heavy Battery R. G. A.The battery was formed on 26th August 1914 as a 4-gun 4.7in battery. It went to France in May 1915 with the 9th (Scottish) Division which it left within a few days to join H.A.Reserve and went into action near Armentieres. Subsequently it joined 16th H.A.Brigade and in January 1917 it was re-equipped with 60 pdrs.. This account is based on the Battery Log but the record is not complete in detail prior to 27th May 1918 a great deal of the necessary information having been lost due to enemy action. Details that are there include the dates of movements with locations from arrival in France to the...

Among the Dead Cities: Is the Targeting of Civilians in War Ever Justified?

A. C. Grayling

Among the Dead Cities: Is the Targeting of Civilians in War Ever Justified? by A. C. GraylingIs it ever right to target civilians in a time of war? Or do the ends sometimes justify the means? The twentieth century - the age of 'total war' - marked the first time that civilian populations came to be seen as legitimate military targets. At this policy's most terrible extreme came the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki but it is an issue that remains relevant today with the needs of the 'War on Terror' used to justify the use of drone strikes. In Amongst the Dead Cities, A.C. Grayling explores these moral issues in all their complexity with a detailed examination of...

Unsung Valor: A GI's Story of World War II

A. Cleveland Harrison

Unsung Valor: A GI's Story of World War II by A. Cleveland Harrison

Thirty riveting months in the life of a common infantryman, one among the "citizen soldiers" who took the Allies to victory

When drafted into the army in 1943, A. Cleveland Harrison was a reluctant eighteen-year-old Arkansas student sure that he would not make a good soldier. But inside thirty months he manfully bore arms and more. This book is his memoir about becoming a soldier, a common infantryman among the ranks of those who truly won the war.

After the Allied victory in 1945, books by and about the major statesmen, generals, and heroes of World War II appeared regularly. Yet millions of...

From 1914 to 1918, Repington's commentary in The Times, 'The War Day by Day', was read and discussed by opinion-shapers and decision-makers worldwide who sought to better understand the momentous events happening around them, and his subsequently published diaries offered a compelling portrait of England's governing class at war. This is the first major study of Repington's life and career from the Boer War to the end of the Great War. A. J. A. Morris presents unique...

Louisbourg: Past, Present, Future

A. J. B. Johnston

Louisbourg: Past, Present, Future by A. J. B. Johnston

Now a national historic site, the fortified military settlement of Louisbourg was once a colonial jewel desired by both the French and English monarchies, traded with yet feared by the Anglo-Americans, and highly regarded by the Mi'kmaq. Home to Canada's first lighthouse, Louisbourg became the capital of ÃŽle-Royale (Cape Breton Island) in 1720, and was an economically viable fishery, military stronghold, and strategic naval base for centuries.

In the newest addition to the Stories of our Past series, Louisbourg: Past, Present, and Future, historian A. J. B. Johnston explores the complex past...

Fortune Favours the Brave: The Battles of the Hook Korea 1952-53

A. J. Barker

Fortune Favours the Brave: The Battles of the Hook Korea 1952-53 by A. J. BarkerAll too little remembered today, the Korean War was bitterly fought out under atrocious conditions of weather and terrain. Greatly outnumbered by their Communist Chinese and North Korean enemy, the United Nations forces fought with extraordinary resolve and gallantry. The Hook, the name given to a prominent ridge on the Peninsula, saw more blood spilt than any other feature in this prolonged and grisly war. Not surprisingly it became known as 'the bloody Hood'. The two costliest battles are described in detail in Fortune Favours The Brave, a classic account of the war. Both involved British...

Global Reach: Revolutionizing the Use of Commercial Vessels and Intermodal Systems for Military Sealift, 1990?2012

A. J. Herberger & Ken Gaulden & Rolf Marshall

Global Reach: Revolutionizing the Use of Commercial Vessels and Intermodal Systems for Military Sealift, 1990?2012 by A. J. Herberger & Ken Gaulden & Rolf MarshallGlobal Reach presents a unique view of the fiscal constraints facing the Department of Defense and the U.S. Government. It calls for U.S. policymakers and the general public to understand the message within the book. With this understanding, the United States will ensure its future ability to acquire and maintain the sealift capability to respond to these challenges in the years to come.

The twenty years following the Persian Gulf Conflict (1990-91) saw a revolution in the means by which the United States military deploys and sustains U.S. armed forces worldwide during contingencies. Historically,...

Rude Mechanicals: An account of Tank Maturity during the Second World War

A. J. Smithers

Rude Mechanicals: An account of Tank Maturity during the Second World War by A. J. SmithersIn this sequel to "An New Excalibur", which examined the development of the tank during World War I and after, Smithers examines the role played by tanks in World War II. At the beginning of the war only the Germans and the Russians had realized the full power of the tank. The British and the Americans were forced to try to catch up. One difficulty was fundamentally a matter of finding the right tool for the right job. In the last year of the war, the Germans relied on the immense King Tigers, which lacked speed and manoeuvrability; while the Allies were confined to Shermans, Cromwells and Churchills,...

Cambrai: The First Great Tank Battle

A. J. Smithers

Cambrai: The First Great Tank Battle by A. J. SmithersIt is probably true to say that no land battle of this century passes Cambrai in importance. Up to the winter of 1917 warfare had changed only in degree since the coming of gunpowder. The scenario, with parts for horse, foot and guns, remained essentially the same. All this was part of a world about to disappear for good with the introduction of the tank. The British Army, hammered by years of war and facing almost alone the vastly increasing strength of its enemy, was expected by most observers to be near to going down in defeat. Instead of that, using British designed and built fighting machines...

Taranto 1940: A Glorious Episode"

A. J. Smithers

Taranto 1940: A Glorious Episode" by A. J. SmithersIn the long history of the British Isles few years can stand in comparison with 1940 in terms of unrivalled gloom. The fiasco in Norway, the evacuation of the BEF from Dunkirk, the fall of France and the entry of Italy into the war were hardly offset by the success of the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain and the failure of the Italian troops in their attempted invasion of Egypt. Near the end of the year, however, there occurred an event which is remarkable not only for its dramatic effect on the course of the war but for the fact that it has virtually disappeared from public memory....
