In 1862 - more than a year into the Civil War - most Americans believed that blacks did not have the courage, intelligence, or discipline to make combat soldiers. But by war's end, more then 175,000 African Americans had served in the Union Army. From the first actions along the Mississippi River to the celebrated attack on Fort Wagner to the final skirmishes of the war, black troops more than proved their courage. Like Men of War recounts the complete, battle-by-battle history of these soldiers, beginning with the first unofficial ex-slave regiments and the push to organize all-black federal regiments. Drawing on newspapers, soldiers' diaries, and letters, acclaimed Civil War historian Noah Andre Trudeau offers a richly textured and unforgettable account of African-American soldiers in battle. This thoroughly researched and engaging history brings these soldiers vividly to life in their own words as they relate their battle experiences and their thoughts on the war and race.

General George S. Patton. His tongue was as sharp as the cavalry saber he once wielded, and his fury as explosive as the shells he’d ordered launched from his tank divisions. Despite his profane, posturing manner, and the sheer enthusiasm for conflict that made both his peers and the public uncomfortable, Patton’s very presence commanded respect. Had his superiors given him free rein, the U.S. Army could have claimed victory in Berlin as early as November of 1944. General Erwin Rommel. His battlefield manner was authoritative, his courage proven in the trenches of World War I when he was awarded the Blue Max. He was a front line soldier who led by example from the turrets of his Panzers. Appointed to command Adolf Hitler’s personal security detail, Rommel had nothing for contempt for the atrocities perpetrated by the Reich. His role in the Führer’s assassination attempt led to his downfall. Except for a brief confrontation in North Africa, these two legendary titans never met in combat. Patton and Rommel is the first single-volume study to deal with the parallel lives of two generals who earned not only the loyalty and admiration of their own men, but the respect of their enemies, and the enmity of the leaders they swore to obey. From the origins of their military prowess, forged on the battlefields of World War I, to their rise through the ranks, to their inevitable clashes with political authority, military historian Dennis Showalter presents a riveting portrait of two men whose battle strategies changed the face of warfare and continue to be studied in military academies around the globe.

Entdecken Sie mit Robert Dinsdales "Die kleinen Wunder von Mayfair" Londons einzigartigen Spielzeug-Laden und einen ergreifenden Liebes- und Familien-Roman zum Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts. Alles beginnt mit einer Zeitungsannonce: »Fühlen Sie sich verloren? Ängstlich? Sind Sie im Herzen ein Kind geblieben? Willkommen in Papa Jacks Emporium.« Die Worte scheinen Cathy förmlich anzuziehen, als sie nach einer neuen Bleibe sucht. Denn im England des Jahres 1906 ist eine alleinstehende junge Frau wie sie nirgendwo willkommen, zumal nicht, wenn sie schwanger ist – und so macht Cathy sich auf nach Mayfair. In Papa Jacks Emporium, Londons magischem Spielzeug-Laden, gibt es nicht nur Zinnsoldaten, die strammstehen, wenn jemand vorübergeht, riesige Bäume aus Pappmaché und fröhlich umherflatternde Vögel aus Pfeifenreinigern. Hier finden all diejenigen Unterschlupf, die Hilfe bitter nötig haben. Doch bald wetteifern Papa Jacks Söhne, die rivalisierenden Brüder Kaspar und Emil, um Cathys Zuneigung. Und als der 1. Weltkrieg ausbricht und die Familie auseinander reißt, scheint das Emporium langsam aber sicher seinen Zauber zu verlieren ... Nostalgisch, rührend und zauberhaft romantisch erzählt Robert Dinsdales "Die kleinen Wunder von Mayfair" von einer jungen Frau, zerrissen in ihrer Liebe zu zwei Männern mit einzigartigen magischen Talenten.

This book considers such issues as major male stereotypes—both positive and negative—in film, the influence of sports as an alternate to mortal combat, why men admire war and value winning so highly, and how war films define manly courage.

An associate of Abraham Lincoln offers an intimate view of the president's relations with military men and top politicians, placing particular emphasis on the election campaigns of 1860 and 1864. A. K. McClure, a Republican powerbroker and later editor of the Philadelphia Times, reveals how Lincoln replaced Vice President Hannibal Hamlin with the southern Democrat Andrew Johnson on the 1864 ticket. According to McClure, Lincoln kept his hand hidden in order not to offend Hamlin and his New England supporters. In 1892, the publication of Abraham Lincoln and Men of War-Times caused an angry exchange of letters (included in this edition) between McClure and the late president's secretary, John G. Nicolay. For all his nobility, Lincoln was a shrewd and cautious politician, running scared for reelection until major Union army victories in September 1864. McClure writes candidly about William T. Sherman, Ulysses S. Grant, and George B. McClellan. Among the politicians discussed are Lincoln's predecessor, James Buchanan, who fixed the Southern policy that Lincoln followed until war came; Salmon P. Chase, the annoyingly ambitious secretary of the treasury; Edwin M. Stanton, the moody secretary of war; and Thaddeus Stevens, the ferocious congressman whose relations with Lincoln were uneasy at best. James A. Rawley is Carl Adolph Happold Professor Emeritus of history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and author of Turning Points of the Civil War, also available as a Bison Book.
