Studies in British Military Thought: Debates With Fuller and Liddell Hart, Brian Holden Reid
4 Brian Holden Reid Studies in British Military Thought: Debates With Fuller and Liddell Hart
Lincoln, NE University of Nebraska Press 1998 0803239270 / 9780803239272 Cloth Used As New As New 
One page corner has light crease from a fold. John Frederick Charles Fuller (1878–1966), British soldier, military analyst, and war historian, is considered the father of modern armored (tank) warfare—first as planner of the attack at Cambrai in November 1917, and then as author of a number of works that challenged traditional British military thought. His ideas were resisted in his own country but had a major impact on German and Soviet military doctrine. Sir Basil Liddell Hart (1895–1970) was also a British military historian and analyst of note and authored influential military histories covering figures from Scipio Africanus to Field Marshal Rommel. In the twelve analytical essays in Studies in British Military Thought Brian Holden Reid examines these two figures whose ideas have influenced the interpretation of events in military history from antiquity to the Cold War. He compares and contrasts their views on tactics, operational art and strategy, and war as a social phenomenon. Additionally, he discusses the radically different temperaments of the two and shows how their differences shaped their work in important ways. In so doing, he continues to bring their ideas to students and practitioners of modern warfare and raises fundamental issues concerning the nature of war.

Best Little Stories from World War I: Nearly 100 True Stories, C. Brian Kelly
5 C. Brian Kelly Best Little Stories from World War I: Nearly 100 True Stories
Naperville, IL Cumberland House 2014 1402293437 / 9781402293436 Paperback Very Good Signed by the Authors
Clean and sturdy. Behind the tangled alliances, feuding royals, and deadly battles are the nearly 100 riveting true stories of the men and women who lived, fought, and survived the first Great War. Based on the writings of soldiers, politicians, kings, nurses, and military leaders, Best Little Stories from World War I humanizes their foibles, triumphs, and tragedies—and chronicles how the emergence of fervent national pride led not only to ruthless combat, but a critical turning point in the twentieth century. Fascinating characters come to life, including: Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnavon, who turned her husband's Highclere Castle into a luxurious military hospital for British officers (and inspired the hit television show Downton Abbey). Otto Roosen, the high-flying German reconnaissance pilot, who was shot down not only one but twice—first by the Canadian ace Billy Bishop and then by a fellow German—and survived. Arthur Guy Empey, the American who volunteered for the British Army after the sinking of the Lusitania, then wrote a bestselling memoir about life in the muddy trenches of the western front.

American Patriots: The Story of Blacks in the Military from the Revolution to Desert Storm, Gail Buckley
9 Gail Buckley American Patriots: The Story of Blacks in the Military from the Revolution to Desert Storm
New York Random House 2001 0375502793 / 9780375502798 Hard Cover As New As New 
This work complements Bernard Nalty's academically oriented history of blacks in America's wars, Strength for the Fight (1986), and Gerald Astor's narrative account, The Right to Fight (1998). Basing her account heavily on interviews and similar primary material, Buckley focuses on the particular experiences of black soldiers. She pulls no punches in describing discrimination against black soldiers, misrepresentation of their performances and denial of their achievements. But in a dominant culture that for much of its history was overtly segregated and highly racist, the pressures of necessity opened military service to blacks. It began as an individual process during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. By the end of the Civil War, the Union army counted its black soldiers in entire divisions and army corps. Black regiments, regulars and volunteers, served in the Plains Indian Wars and in the wars of empire at the century's turn. During the First World War, black troops won more credit under French colors than a segregated American Expeditionary Force would allow. Some black activists of the interwar years correspondingly turned to the revolutionary promises of Communism, playing a role in the Spanish Civil War's International Brigades, which Buckley arguably exaggerates. WWII was America's last segregated conflict. In Buckley's account the armed forces have succeeded in acknowledging past racism, while proving that liberal values like equality of treatment and opportunity are able to coexist with conservative ones like duty, honor and patriotism. (On-sale date: May 15)Forecast: Buckley, daughter of Lena Horne (and author of The Hornes), should have no trouble getting media attention on her six-city tour. Military history buffs and a broader readership interested in African-American history will turn out to buy this. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

The Doughboys: America And The First World War, Gary Mead
10 Gary Mead The Doughboys: America And The First World War
New York The Overlook Press 2000 1585673234 / 9781585673230 Trade Paperback Fine 
Shows light wear. The Doughboys were the more than three million men, many of them volunteers, recruited from the cities and farms of the United States, who traveled across the Atlantic to aid the Allies in the trenches and on the battlefields of World War I. Without their courage and determination, the outcome of the war would have been very different. Drawing upon the often harrowing personal accounts of the soldiers of the AEF, The Doughboys establishes the pivotal role played by the Americans in the defeat of the Central powers in November 1918. Gary Mead brings together a rich selection of archive material in an engaging account that is part military history, part social analysis, part memoir. The Doughboys records the events of the war from the perspective of the United States, highlighting the crucial part played by the troops of the AEF and exposing the prickly, often turbulent relationship between the American and the Allied forces.

The Remains of Company D: A Story of the Great War, James Carl Nelson

New York St. Martin's Press 2009 0312551002 / 9780312551001 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
“Not since Flags of Our Fathers—no, make that, Not since Paul Fussell’s The Great War and Modern Memory—no, make that, Not ever—has an American nonfiction writer reached into history and produced a testament of young men in terrible battle with the stateliness, the mastery of cadence, the truthfulness and the muted heartbreak of James Carl Nelson in The Remains of Company D. I wish I’d had the honor of working on this book with him. But then, he didn’t need me.”---Ron Powers, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Flags of Our Fathers and author of Mark Twain: A Life “A beautifully crafted anthem to doomed American youth, James Carl Nelson’s The Remains of Company D is a must-read for World War I enthusiasts and those looking for a damn good war book.”---Alex Kershaw, New York Times bestselling author of The Longest Winter and The Bedford Boys “War is always hell, but the unprecedented carnage on World War I’s Western Front was the stuff of nightmares. The American boys of Company D were on the front lines, and James Carl Nelson has combined previously unpublished first-person accounts, prodigious research, and vivid, you-are-there prose into one of the great books on the subject. This is a Band of Brothers for World War I.”---James Donovan, author of A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn—the Last Great Battle of the American West “James Carl Nelson’s book is a great contribution to AEF history. He has done an incredible amount of research in order to convey the experience of one group of doughboys...and to tell their story through their own words.….He reminds us that these long-forgotten battles of ninety years ago were as hard fought as any before or since, and that our country was well served by the young men who fought them. Get this book. It puts a very human face on the experience of Americans on the Western Front.”---Dr. Paul Herbert, executive director of the Cantigny First Division Foundation Haunted by an ancestor’s tale of near death on a distant battlefield, James Carl Nelson set out in pursuit of the scraps of memory of his grandfather’s small infantry unit. Years of travel across the world led to the retrieval of unpublished personal papers, obscure memoirs, and communications from numerous Doughboys as well as original interviews of the descendents of his grandfather’s comrades in arms. The result is a compelling tale of battle rooted in new primary sources, and one man’s search for his grandfather’s legacy in a horrifying maelstrom that is today poorly understood and nearly forgotten. The Remains of Company D follows the members of Company D, 28th Infantry Regiment, United States First Division, from enlistment to combat to the effort to recover their remains, focusing on the three major battles at Cantigny, Soissons, and in the Meuse-Argonne and the effect these horrific battles had on the men. This is an important and powerful tale of the different destinies, personalities, and motivations of the men in Company D and a timeless portrayal of men at war.

The powerful story of a soldier who lost his memory and identity, and of a people in mourning who found in him their own missing men In February 1918, a derelict soldier was discovered wandering the railway station in Lyon, France.

America's Military Adversaries: From Colonial Times to the Present, John C. Fredriksen

Santa Barbara, CA ABC-CLIO 2001 1576076032 / 9781576076033 Hard Cover Very Good Ex-library 
Books on American military heroes abound. But this book is the first to focus on America's talented enemieS≪/I>—the generals, admirals, Indian chiefs and warriors, submarine captains, fighter pilots, and spies who opposed the United States with military force or other means. Often these military leaders were among the best minds of their times. For more than two centuries, the new nation's most constant military opponents were the Native Americans, led by such capable chiefs as American Horse and Little Wolf. Under D'Iberville, Canada's French colonialists became formidable foes, but they were soon surpassed by the rigorously disciplined redcoats of Great Britain under Howe and Cornwallis. Ironically, the most effective enemies in the history of the United States were not the leaders of foreign military forces—like Mexico's Santa Anna, Japan's Yamamoto, or VietnaM&Apos;s Vo Nguyen Giap. They arose from among its own citizens during the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in American history.

A History of Warfare, John Keegan
17 John Keegan A History of Warfare
New York Knoph 1993 0394588010 / 9780394588018 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
In his sweeping new study, Keegan ( The Face of Battle ) examines the origins and nature of warfare, the ethos of the primitive and modern warrior and the development of weapons and defenses from the battle of Megiddo (1469 B.C.) into the nuclear age. Keegan offers a refreshingly original and challenging perspective. He characterizes warriors as the protectors of civilization rather than as its enemy and maintains that warfare is "entirely a masculine activity." Though warfare has become an ingrained practice over the course of 4000 years, he argues, its manifestation in the primitive world was circumscribed by ritual and ceremony that often embodied restraint, diplomacy and negotiation. Peacekeepers, he suggests, would benefit from studying primitive warmaking--especially now, "a time when the war of all against all already confronts us." A masterwork.

New York, NY Simon & Schuster 2002 0684871777 / 9780684871776 Trade Paperback Very Good 
In On Seas of Glory, the U.S. Navy meets a storyteller worthy of its noble history. Former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman gives a sweeping narrative of the service's illustrious past, from the Revolutionary War to the present day, filled with the ships that dominated the seas, equally titanic personalities, and the battles that made history. Lehman profiles naval greats from John Paul Jones to William "Bull" Halsey, as well as the lesser-known sailors who have made the U.S. Navy the mightiest in the world, using diaries, memoirs, and letters to reveal naval combat as though firsthand. He also highlights the warships that have dominated the seas of their day and the battles in which they fought -- illustrated by detailed maps, woodcuts, paintings, and never-before-published photographs. With this chronicle of selfless sacrifice and awesome courage on the war-swept seas around the world, Lehman reminds us that the legends chronicled in these pages were real men and women, that the navy they fought for still sails, and that today their heroism is needed more than ever.

London, England Michael O'Mara Books 2006 1843171910 / 9781843171911 Cloth As New As New 
Sir Winston Churchill was undoubtedly the greatest leader of the Second World War, and unarguably the greatest Briton of his age. Born at the height of British imperial power and twice elected Prime Minister, he galvanized the British people and their allies to resist the onslaught from both Nazi Germany and Japan. In doing so, he became the architect of the destruction of these unquestionably evil empires. Because—or in spite—of his numerous and varied successes, Churchill was also a full-bloodied human being, with all of the foibles, attitude, distemper, pig-headedness, and conceit that are so often the shadows of such greatness. This masterful chronicle is at once a many-sided work, a great source of anecdotes and memories, an insight into Churchill's larger-than-life personality, a record of his often caustic yet brilliant wit, and above all, a document of his remarkable and inestimable contribution to the modern world.

At War at Sea: Sailors and Naval Combat in the Twentieth Century, Ronald H. Spector

New York Viking 2001 0670860859 / 9780670860852 Hard Cover Very Good Good 
At War at Sea is a fascinating account of the most important naval conflicts of the twentieth century. The book begins with a gripping account of one of the most decisive battles in history, the 1905 Battle of Tsushima, between the Japanese and the Russians, and ends with the sophisticated missile engagements off the Falklands and the Persian Gulf. Ronald H. Spector, former director of naval history for the U.S. Navy, chronicles not only the mechanics of battle and the changing technology of war, but also presents these extraordinary stories from the point of view of the participants. How did it feel to be the target of a 15-inch shell at the Battle of Jutland or to experience a depth charge attack in a submarine in the Battle of the Atlantic? What was it like to be under attack by Stuka dive bombers off Crete or kamikazes off Okinawa during World War II? Using more than a hundred diaries, memoirs, letters, and interviews as well as official records, Spector takes an in-depth look at fighting sailors-in peacetime and in time of war-that is unparalleled both in scope and emotional intensity.

Trench Warfare inaugurates a new, fully illustrated series devoted to different types of key military strategies throughout history. Each volume specifically focuses on a war in which that tactic played a central role: here, the concentration is on World War I. After placing trench warfare in its military context, this compelling volume delves into how combatants lived and coped in these ditches. In fascinating detail, it reveals what the conditions were like, including the barbed wire, diseases, and infestations; what weaponry and equipment were used; and how effective new forms of artillery were-including machine guns, chemical weapons, tanks, and aircraft. Explanations cover everything from trench tactics to their impact on the war as a whole, and also capture the experience of "going over the top" into battle. Dr. Stephen Bull is Keeper of Military History and the Museum of Lancashire, England. He has contributed to numerous publications, including a series of articles for Military Illustrated.
