My War at Sea 1914–1916: A Captain's Life with the Royal Navy during the First World War

by Heathcoat Grant and Mark Tanner

This book is based on the wartime recollections of Heathcoat S. Grant, the captain of the HMS Canopus between 1914–1916. It is published in conjunction with the War Letters 1914–1918 series.

For the first two years of the war HMS Canopus had as eventful a time as any ship in the Royal Navy, being involved at Coronel, the Battle of the Falklands and the attempt to force the Dardanelles.

As captain of the ship, Grant’s account, based on his service reports and diary, is a valuable source for those wanting to know more about such key naval events of the First World War. It has the added advantage of being highly readable.

The report of his conversations with Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock sheds a valuable light on events at Coronel, while his...

The Donner Party (Excerpt from Shit Doesn't Just Happen)

by Bob Mayer

"“I wish I could cry, but I cannot. If I could forget the tragedy, perhaps I would know how to cry again.” Mary Graves. Survivor, the ‘Donner Party’

Every man-made disaster and catastrophe has at least six Cascade Events leading up to the final event, the catastrophe according to the Rule of Seven.

This is a quick read of the Cascade Events that led up to Cannibalism while the ‘Donner Party’ emigrated west to California

Bob examines the Rule of Seven, and how human error plays a role in many catastrophes. Nothing happens in isolation or as a result of a single event. Thus, by learning from history, we can gain insight into preventing a similar catastrophe in the future. The key to the Donner Party were the numerous tipping points where the...

Unfurled No More Forever

by Michael L. Eads

Was the Civil War the greatest war in American history or was it the biggest mistake in American history? Was the blood of over one million men spilt over countless battlefields necessary to get rid of slavery? Was the country that we called free for everyone just an idea? Was a nation born and then destroyed because of an institution that was nothing more than peculiar? Does the flag of a dead country that still flies over courthouses in the South, speak for a nation? Does that same flag represent the evils of slavery or the pride of a people who don't know how to let go? Would our forefathers approve and recognize the country we call America today? Did America’s greatest war finally make us one nation?

Let an eleven-year-old boy answer these questions the only way he know...

Tradition and Innovation: Reflections on Politics

by Tuck Newport

Individual members of life forms as diverse as dogs, fish and bacteria all display distinctive individual behavior patterns (i.e., "personalities"). These have evolved to maximize the odds that some members of a species will survive regardless of what happens around them. Behavior conducive to survival and reproduction in one situation often fails in another. Hence the need in every population group for a wide spectrum of behavior patterns. These variations recur, embodied in different individuals, generation after generation. The same evolutionary imperative produces the human behavioral diversity that maximizes our odds of survival as a species. Understanding political behavior, as distinct from engaging in partisanship, requires viewing politics with an eye not only for conflicting inte...

Revisit The Old Mill: Its Creation Defined Texas

by W. Leon Smith

Revisit The Old Mill is a compilation of thousands of hours of research regarding the history of an iconic structure that influenced the entire state of Texas during the late 1800s and early 1900s. This nonfiction account of Texas history explains how the old water mill began as a grist mill and later was converted into an electrical power plant. Built by early settlers, its reach extended statewide. Its influence and impact on those who learned from it resulted in empires and dynasties that came to fruition — all grounded on this mill that began in a small town. The Old Mill was owned by governors, bankers, entrepreneurs, statesmen, builders, and pathfinders who developed the Lone Star State. The visions, drive, and risks for a state often under attack by Indians were immense, and c...

Family Genealogy Queries: BACON BACCUS BACHELOR BATCHELOR (Southern Genealogical Research)

Genealogy queries are a time-honored way for family researchers to share information with others working on the same lines. A typical query includes information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories that have been passed down through the years!Many an amateur (or professional) genealogist has been able to fill in blanks on a family tree thanks to the information found in queries such as those reproduced here, which originally appeared in a noted southern (U.S.) query magazine published in the 1990s (now out of print).Contents of this short volume include all queries mentioning individuals or families surnamed BACON (7 queries total), BACONS (1 query), BACCUS (...

A Brief History of Kimberley (Brief Histories, North Nottingham Book 1)

by J M Lee

Kimberley is a small suburban town on the fringes of Nottingham. It arose, probably, as a Saxon settlement, many years before the Norman Conquest and first saw the light of day in records as an entry in the Domesday survey of 1087. For centuries it remained a remote and obscure agricultural hamlet. As the medieval period progressed, it acquired and lost great landowners, some of them in dramatic circumstances. William Peverel was probably the mightiest, but there were others, including the Duke of Rutland, Lord Melbourne, and the Earls of Essex. By about 1800, the system of large, open fields, cultivated communally in ‘strips’, had all but disappeared; the turnpike road of 1763 occupied the valley bottom and transport had started to improve. The age of railways was yet to dawn, but the...

While compiling the extensive series, “Free Books for a Quick Download” it became evident that very few free books were available on Amazon on the Second World War. Yet the war was one of the most important and pivotal period in human history, a period which needs to be studied so as to appreciate the sacrifices of the countless many who gave their lives or that suffered greatly as a result of that calamitous time.Given the gigantic need to never forget, I decided to explore Amazon for books about WWII that were relevant--and affordable. The result is this low-cost collection of over 150 books about various aspects of the war. The cost of each of each the books listed in this work is about $1.00 or less.

A Brief History of Watnall (Brief Histories, North Nottingham Book 2)

by J M Lee

Watnall today is a pleasant, leafy dormitory area for a number of nearby conurbations, including the City of Nottingham itself. It blends into similar residential areas which stretch away seamlessly towards Kimberley, Nuthall and beyond. It is a desirable place to live, with a great pressure for modem housing. Had you been here two centuries ago, however, you would have been in the midst of a small and remote hamlet, surrounded on all sides by the fields and activities of a completely agricultural way of life.
The history of Watnall goes back at least to Saxon times. After the Norman invasion of 1066, the village came under the stewardship of William Peverel and first enters the official records as an entry in the Domesday survey of 1087. As medieval times progressed, Watnall evolved...

Newthorpe arose some time before the Norman Conquest, its name suggestive of a Danish origin. Like its neighbours, it first appears in public records as an entry in the Domesday Book and for centuries afterwards existed as a large and relatively important agricultural hamlet. It was probably idyllic: a small village centre of thatched cottages, surrounded by hundreds of acres of fields and commons. In medieval times it became part of the huge estates belonging to two important, local monasteries – Lenton and Beauvale - and after the Dissolution became the property of a series of important land-owning families including the Earls of Essex, the Willoughby family of Risley and the Lords Stamford, Melbourne and Cowper. Earl Cowper was the last of the major landowners; his estates lasted unti...

But walking along “The Lane” in modern times, it’s not hard to transport yourself back a couple of hundred years to the tiny hamlet of the past, surrounded as it was, on all sides, by rural England. And through the mists of time it’s possible to glimpse a fascinating story. The origins of Awsworth go back at least to Saxon times. After that, as the centuries progressed, it came under some dramatic influences: Lenton Priory, whose Prior was executed during the Dissolution, the Lords Cromwell, the Babbington family which met disaster after plotting against Elizabeth, the Sheffields of Butterwick, the Willoughby family of Risley, the Earl of Stamford and more.
