The day Lincoln was almost shot : the Fort Stevens story by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book recounts the story of President Abraham Lincoln's role in the Battle of Fort Stevens in July 1864. This engagement stands apart in American history as the only time a sitting American president came under enemy fire while in office. In this new study of this overlooked moment in American history, Cooling poses a troubling question: What if Lincoln had been shot and killed during this short battle, nine months prior to his death by John Wilkes Booth's hand in Ford's Theater? A potential pivotal moment in the Civil War, the Battle of Fort Stevens could have changed - with Lincoln's demise - the course of American history

9 editions published between 1979 and 1992 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise history of the birth of the modern U.S. military-industrial complex from 1881-1917 including : shipbuilding, armor and armament, and business relationships between the government, the military and industry. Set in the populist and progressive eras, questions arose as to whether the U.S. should use public or private financing or an amalgamation of those production programs for materiel, construction, and tools of war. The author uses the Navy as a case study for analyzing institutional reactions, and national policies and requirements in economic, political, strategic, and technological sectors
Case studies in the development of close air support by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 1982, Maj. Gen. Perry McCoy Smith, then the Air Force Director of Plans, asked the Office of Air Force History to prepare a number of case-study volumes on various aspects of air warfare. For this volume, each author was asked to produce an original case study on a defined period or subject. The essays were to be based on all relevant published literature and on the key archival documents containing the record of how various air forces actually developed and applied their systems of close air support to ground combat. Each author also was asked to cover certain basic topics: initial doctrine, organization of forces, background and courses of the air-ground campaigns, communications systems, command and control systems, weaponry and technology, and the decisions and people that determined the course of action and shaped its outcome. A concluding retrospect draws generalizations from the experiences presented. The following cases studies are included: "Developments to 1939," by Lee Kennett; "The Luftwaffe Experience, 1939-1941," by Williamson Murray; "Soviet Air-Ground Coordination, 1941-1945," by Kenneth R. Whiting; "The Tunisian Campaign, 1942-1943," by David Syrett; "Allied Cooperation in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1945," by Alan F. Wilt; "The Battle for France, 1944," by Will A. Jacobs; "American Experience in the Southwest Pacific," by Joe Gray Taylor; "Korea, 1950-1953," by Allan R. Millett; "Southeast Asia," by John J. Sbrega; "The Israeli Experience," by Brereton Greenhous; and "A Retrospect on Close Air Support," by I.B. Holley, Jr

Case studies in the achievement of air superiority( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chefer for taktiske luftstyrker definere deres mission som "Counterair" (defensiv og offensiv), "air support" til landstyrker, "interdiction", specielle operationer, "support" inkl "reconnaissance, "electronic combat" og "theater nuclear warfare". Samtlige af de nævnte missioner er imidlertid vanskelige at gennemføre uden at have "Air Superiority". Denne fundamentale kendsgerning er ikke anderledes end den var for 70 år siden og synes ikke at kræve nogle drastiske ændringer i den nærmeste fremtid

Fort Donelson's legacy : war and society in Kentucky and Tennessee, 1862-1863 by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fort Donelson's Legacy portrays the tapestry of war and society in the upper southern heartland of Tennessee and Kentucky after the key Union victories at Forts Henry and Donelson in February 1862. Those victories, notes Benjamin Franklin Cooling, could have delivered the decisive blow to the Confederacy in the West and ended the war in that theater. Instead, what followed was terrible devastation and bloodshed that embroiled soldier and civilian alike. Cooling compellingly describes a struggle that was marked not only by the movement of armies and the strategies of generals but also by the rise of guerrilla bands and civil resistance. It was, in part, a war fought for geography - for rivers and railroads and for strategic cities such as Nashville, Louisville, and Chattanooga. But it was also a war for the hearts and minds of the populace ... In exploring the complex terrain of 'total war' that steadily engulfed Tennessee and Kentucky, Cooling draws on a huge array of sources, including official military records and countless diaries and memoirs. He makes considerable use of the words of participants to capture the attitudes and concerns of those on both sides."--Dust jacket
