The Philosopher Abolitionist: William L. Garrison's Life in Ideas

by Timothy Pifer

This book provides a brief biographical and historiographical examination of the noted Immediate Abolitionist leader, William Lloyd Garrison using chiefly his own words. The book is intended for both casual readers and researchers looking for a cited and scholarly work on the abolitionist movement. Particularly those students of history looking to understand the abolition movement's philosophy during the decades just before the American Civil War. Garrison was the focus because of his unique position at the heart of the immediate abolitionist movement. In fact, Garrison (1805-1879) was at the time the best-known and most radical immediate abolitionist of the antebellum period, and was closely associated at various times with other notables such as Wendell Phillips, Harriet Beecher ...

Open Wounds: My memoir as a brown-water U.S. Navy sailor in the Vietnam War

by Robert W. Smith

After 50 years of keeping the tormenting memories of the Vietnam War at bay, Robert W. Smith unveils the horrific experiences he lives with daily. He weaves over 130 letters and pictures he sent to his family during a 15-month tour of duty between 1967 and 1968 in South Vietnam into a cohesive and flowing story. Open Wounds transforms disjointed examples of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual hardships into an engaging journey that modern-day military families easily empathize with. Ironically, Smith opens the very wounds that haunt him while sharing the letters, meant only for his wife, which bring his readers on harrowing patrols of the brown-water rivers of the Mekong Delta. Open Wounds is a book that highlights the Vietnam War era but carries relevance to the pains of modern-day...

Understanding the Vietnam War

by Dr. Thomas Bruce

The Vietnam War, also called the Vietnam Conflict, is one of the great defining wars in American’s history, with an influence on the American psyche only surpassed by the Civil War. The armies of the United States have won and lost many battles during the wars it has become engaged it, but until Vietnam America had never actually lost a war. Lost is probably too strong a word to use. The American homeland was never attacked, and US forces were never decisively defeated in the field. America simply failed to win the war. The nation was unable to find the tactics to defeat the enemies will to continue fighting, while the war drained their own stamina to persevere with the conflict any longer. The ultimate withdrawal of US armed forces from Vietnam bruised America’s ego and shook th...

We will also focus on the description of some fights with their participation.Military aviation in America developed in several different ways than in Europe. The geographical position contributed to the development of the carrier fleet and deck aircraft. From a technical point of view, American aircraft also stood out against the European: they had an unusual fuselage layout (P-38, P-39), powerful radial engines and the prevalence of machine-gun armament. In general, speed and range prevailed over maneuverability and lightness. This was due to the...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

The only blood that’s missing right now and shown before was Israel. Again I state, that if they would test the hair that was found recently of George Washington’s in a book in a library at a college, that it would match my DNA at www.Ancestry.com because it found relatives of George that are direct descendants of them via cousins so yeah, we were directly related to George Washington.

Winston Churchill: The Incredible Life And Legacy Of Winston Churchill

by Tom King

The Incredible Life and Legacy of Sir Winston Churchill takes an inside look the man whom many historians consider one of the greatest world leaders in modern history. But was he really that great? Known for countless and memorable quotes, including ones he came to regret saying, we delve into some of the lesser known aspects of Churchill’s life. Surviving a death defying injury before the age of twenty, taking responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of British sailors at the outset of war and befriending a man he loathed, we explore how he went from the trenches of France during the First World War to the conference tables of the Kremlin and the White House during the second world war and beyond.History has been kind to Winston Churchill, yet his many shortcomings have been glossed ov...

Mystical Ways of Nazi Germany: Unique modern and old world war technology

Mystical Ways of Nazi GermanyUnique modern and old world war technologyThis book is a collection of articles and notes that are united by the theme of mystical research and secret defense. In Nazi Germany in the 30-40 years these issues were given a lot of attention and, perhaps, if the miraculous things turned out to be true, our history would be quite different.Humanity has a funny trait: if we do not know something, then we include fantasy and attribute it to mystical or extraterrestrial traits. So there were reptiloids; so peaceful in general, the religion of voodoo has turned into a continuous uplift of the dead; so Tibetan medicine suddenly became a panacea, although before coming to the region of China people there lived up to 40 years.It is only natural that the Third Reich with it...

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. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...
