A lynching in the heartland : race and memory in America by James H Madison( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a hot summer night in 1930, three black teenagers accused of murdering a young white man and raping his girlfriend waited for justice in an Indiana jail. A mob dragged them from the jail and lynched two of them. No one in Marion, Indiana was ever punished for the murders. In this gripping account, James H. Madison refutes the popular perception that lynching was confined to the South, and clarifies 20th century America's painful encounters with race, justice, and memory

Madison offers an invigorating view of one of America's distinctive states and the long and fascinating journey of its people

Wendell Willkie : Hoosier internationalist( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in Undetermined and English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor James H. Madison has brought together a distinguished group of historians; four of them look at Willkie's role in Indiana and in American politics and business, and three others discuss Willkie's role in Indiana and in American politics and business, and three others discuss Willkie in a world perspective. The portrait of Willkie that emerges is far from that of the barefoot farm boy. He was a sophisticated, intelligent, exuberant American who somehow seemed to express the postwar optimism that suffused our culture as well as our hope for a new democratic world order. - Publisher

Slinging doughnuts for the boys : an American woman in World War II by James H Madison( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Richardson was a Red Cross volunteer who worked in a Red Cross Clubmobile unit during World War II until her death in a plane crash in July 1945. Her job was to provide free doughnuts and coffee, cigarettes and gum to American soldiers on duty in England, and later in France. More importantly, she and her colleagues provided a slice of home. They were American girls with whom soldiers could talk, flirt, dance, and perhaps find companionship. For the most part, the job was not hazardous -- except when V-1 rockets rained down on London -- but it required physical endurance as well as the honed skills of a counselor. Liz Richardson was a witty writer and observer. Her letters and diaries reveal an intelligent, independent woman

From war to peace in 1945 Germany : a GI's experience by Malcolm L Fleming( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an Official Army Photographer, "Mac" Fleming's assignment was to take motion pictures of significant wartime events for the U.S. Army. In the first-aid kit on his belt, he also carried a small personal camera, which he used to take pictures of the people and places that interested him, capturing in his field notes details of the life he observed. From these records, Fleming has assembled this absorbing private chronicle of war and peace. Assigned to the European Theater in February 1945, he filmed the action from the battle for the Remagen Bridge across the Rhine, to the fighting in the Hartz Mountains, on to the linkup with the Russian forces at the Elbe River. After the armistice, Fleming helped document how the Allied Expeditionary Force established a military government in Germany to cope with masses of POWs, establish control of the country, deal with the atrocities committed by the German army, and help thousands of newly released slave laborers return home to Poland, France, and Russia. He also recorded how the army provided rest, recreation, and rehabilitation to the remaining U.S. soldiers and sent them home by truck, train, and ship. Awaiting shipment home, Fleming explored postwar German town and country life and toured some famous castles and historic spots. The foreword by historian James H. Madison describes the important role of photography in war and the special contribution of Fleming's photographic diary"--

Letters from the greatest generation : written home in WWII by Howard H Peckham( Recording )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victory and defeat, love and loss are the prevalent realities of Letters from the Greatest Generation, a remarkable and frank collection of World War II letters penned by American men and women serving overseas.Here, the hopes and dreams of the greatest generation fill each page, and their voices ring loud and clear. "It's all part of the game but it's bloody and rough," wrote one soldier to his wife. "Wearing two stripes now and as proud as an old cat with five kittens," marked another. Yet, as many countries rejoiced on V-E Day, soldiers were "too tired and sad to celebrate." While visiting a German concentration camp, one man wrote, "I don't like Army life but I'm glad we are here to stop these atrocities."True to the everyday thoughts of these fighters, this collection of letters can be as amusing as it is worrying. As one soldier noted, "I know lice don't crawl so I figured they were fleas." A fitting tribute to all veterans, this book is one every American should own. -- Container
