The Mormon Wars: The History of the Mormons' Conflicts across the Frontier in the 19th Century

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsAmong all the various figures in 19th century America who left controversial legacies, it is hard to find one as influential as Joseph Smith (1805-1844), the founder of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Mormonism, and the Latter-Day Saint movement. Revered as a prophet on the level of Moses by some, reviled as a perpetrator of large-scale fraud by others, what everyone can agree on is that Joseph Smith founded a religious movement that played a crucial role in the settlement of the West, especially in Utah. Locating Joseph Smith in history is to look for the "mess" of early America and find him standing in the middle, trying to make sense of the "native pandemo...

Everlasting Light - A Civil War Romance

by Andrea Boeshaar

When loss lingers ... love - even beyond death.

The American Civil War has ended, but Alaina McKenna still awaits news about her husband, Braeden. Did he die in a Yankee prison? Was he buried in a shallow grave on a Virginia battlefield? Or has he turned his back on the specter of death and loss around him and sought solitude west of the Mississippi River, never to return home, again?

As Christmas nears, Alaina deflects the advances of a suitor in the neighboring county, choosing to cling instead to hope and her belief that Braeden will return. As winter’s chill settles upon her farm, Alaina cries out to God in one final Christmas Prayer.

When loss lingers ... love - even beyond death. For it is through heartbreak that God opens doorways to hope....

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.

by John D. Billings

Hardtack and Coffee or The Unwritten Story of Army Life (1887) is a memoir by John D. Billings. Billings was a veteran of the 10th Massachusetts Volunteer Light Artillery Battery in the American Civil War. Originally published in 1888, Hard Tack and Coffee quickly became a best seller, and is now considered one of the most important books written by a Civil War veteran.

Preparing the Cold War: Project Casey Jones: Post Hostilities Aerial Mapping: Iceland, Europe and North Africa from June 1945 to December 1946

by Robert Boyd

Germany's surrender meant that World War II was over in Europe and no further bombing missions would be flown there. Rumors were rife and one started floating that the 305th and 306th Bombardment Groups would not accompany the Eighth Air Force to the war in the Pacific. Instead, these two units, with the greatest amount of service in the European theater, would be detailed to a new mission for preparing the Cold War: Photographic mapping of the continent of Europe, North Africa and Iceland. This rumor was confirmed on a morning early in June 1945. The group commanders briefed their men on the new mission, nicknamed “Project Casey Jones”.The initial reaction of the crews that were to fly the new mission was that the stringency of the task made its successful completion nearly impossible...

Shaping the American Consensus Through Film Propaganda & the Notion of a "Mythic Past": A Study of Public Opinion in the World War Two Era

by James Maynard

December 7th, 1941 was, as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt famously declared, “a day of infamy.” This day will be forever emblazoned in the consciousness of the American public as the attack on Pearl Harbor, a day which awoke the “Sleeping Giant” and symbolized Japan’s treacherous attempt to destroy American peace, neutrality, and most importantly, democratic vision. Moreover, December 7th, 1941 represented a critical juncture—one in which America would make the decision to dramatically alter the structure and dynamics of 20th century international relations by engaging in the “Good War.” Such an all-encompassing decision would require an unprecedented process of wartime mobilization from a nation which had been determined to avoid entry into another World War.

World War Two, America's Divine Mission & The Formulation of the Japanese "Other": A Study of Wartime Propaganda as a Tactical Weapon and a Euphemism for Racial Discrimination

by James Maynard

During World War Two, over fifty years of collective American prejudice towards Japanese immigrants reached a scathing pinnacle, reflected in literal terms by the official order for Japanese internment along the West Coast, and more significantly, in the consciousness of popular culture in its fierce ideological separation of "us and them." While war against the Axis powers was a total effort of quashing the brutality of anti-democratic principles, war against the Japanese was conceived as "a holy war, a racial war of greater significance than any the world has heretofore seen." In this paper, I analyze the ideological forces behind America's "holy war" against the Japanese by focusing on the visual portrayal of the Japanese as sub-human, mindless tyrants. Instilling the American public wi...

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 History of Cuba, vol. 2

by Willis Fletcher Johnson

Although floods rarely get as much coverage as other kinds of natural disasters like volcanic explosions, the Johnstown Flood of 1889 has remained an exception due to the sheer destruction and magnitude of the disaster. On May 31, 1889, Johnstown became a casualty of a combination of heavy rains and the failure of the South Fork Dam to stem the rising water levels of Lake Conemaugh about 15 miles away. The dam’s inability to contain the water and its subsequent collapse resulted in a catastrophic flood that swept through the town with virtually no warning. With water flowing at a rate equivalent to the Mississippi River, a tide of water and debris 60 feet high and traveling 40 miles per hour in some places surged through Johnstown and swept away people and property alike. The flood ultim...
