The loss of Italy, meanwhile, had become almost a foregone conclusion when Rome fell in the spring of 1944, and by late summer the fighting had reached all the way up the peninsula to Pisa.The Japanese situation was ...

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured.

COMM UP: A Marine's Reflections on the Opening of the Iraq War

by AARON Albers

March 19, 2003 and America is on the eve of war. In the Kuwaiti desert, thousands of young Americans and their coalition partners stand ready to start the war against Iraq, if ordered too. Many of them would be facing combat for the first time, and each of them carry their own thoughts and worries, which would change from day to day; the initial drive into Iraq and the early problems in the war, the weather and operational pause to the fall of Baghdad. And then getting home. Now 15 years after his involvement in the invasion, Aaron Albers commemorates the anniversary by sharing his story of a time when he was one of the thousands involved in the drive to Baghdad....

Becoming Private Dickens: A Walk in Her Boots

by Jackie Dickens Walker

Join One Woman On Her Journey To Becoming A Soldier! In 1980, Goldie Hawn as Private Benjamin captivated audiences with her comedic depiction of Army life. In one of those audiences was Jackie Dickens, a recent high school graduate who left the theater on a mission to join the Army.

Headlong into Fury: A WWII Pilot's Riveting Story of Rescue and Redemption

by Ron White

“One shell whizzed past my ear, ripping the oxygen mask off my face. Seconds later, our wing was strafed and started to unravel . . . We were unable to control the plane any longer. She started to plummet.” Frank Kirkland dreamed about serving his country as a fighter pilot during World War II but was reassigned as a bomber pilot—where the dangerous flying conditions proved to be less glamorous and more deadly. After getting shot out of his plane and landing on German-occupied soil, Kirkland learned about rescue and redemption during some of the fiercest years of the twentieth century.

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel ...

Their legendary elite combat core, the Janissaries, was a phenomenon in transformative education.

Ottoman Empire was Europe's first welfare state based on privately funded charities. The Empire's trade pact with France was history's first free trade agreement. Like the United States the Ottoman Empire attracted talent, know-h...

We don’t know all of their stories; we don’t know the whole story. Yet this is our history and these are our ancestors. To truly understand what drove these men to look into the face of death on a daily basis we must listen to them. But, the time is far past where we could speak to those who knew the truth, who experienced the war. Now we only have the stories from our ancestors as ...

This is the seventh book that Amy has put together in her quest to uncover every faucet of daily life in the hell of a German extermination camp. Translated from its original Polish, Amy strives to maintain the exact flavor of psychological terror that the Jewish workers at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to endure. Many were put to death or simply died on their own. Others were given scraps of food in return for slaving away for long days of merciless back breaking labor. Sometimes the work seemed worse than death itself. Here, the every day life of one such worker is chronicled, but with a twist. This particular worker finds his way into one of the 'trick programs' put together to fool Red Cross visiting groups. In this fascinating account, we can readily see how easy it would have been to trick ...
