Marching armies, cavalry raids, guerrilla warfare, massacres, towns and farms in flames- the American Civil War, 1861-1865? No- Kansas, 1854-1861. Before there was Bull Run or Gettysburg, there was Black Jack and Oswatomie. Long before events in Fort Sumter ignited the War Between the States, men fought and died on the prairies of Kansas over the incendiary issue of slavery. In 1854 a shooting war developed between proslavery men in Missouri and free-staters in Kansas over control of the territory. The prize was whether it would be a slave or a free state when admitted to the Union, a question that could decide the balance of power in Washington. Told in the unforgettable words of the men and women involved, this book is an absorbing account of a bloody episode in our nation's past. -- from Book Jacket

"It was one of the most tragic events in American history: the famous president, beloved by many, reviled by some, murdered while viewing a play at Ford's Theater in Washington. The frantic search for the perpetrators. The nation in mourning. The solemn funeral train. The conspirators brought to justice. Coming just days before the surrender of the Confederate Army at Appomattox, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln has become etched in the national consciousness like few other events. The president who had steered the nation through its bloodiest crisis is cut down before the end, just as it appears that the bloodshed has ended."--Jacket

Hellstorm : the death of Nazi Germany 1944-1947 by Th Goodrich( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was the most deadly and destructive war in human history. Millions were killed, billions in property was destroyed, ancient cultures were reduced to rubble--World War II was truly man's greatest cataclysm. Thousands of books, movies and documentary films have been devoted to the war. There has never been such a terrible retelling of the story, however, as one will find in Hellstorm. In a chilling "you-are-there" style, the author places the reader at the scene, in the moment. Throughout this book readers will see what Allied airman saw as they rained down death on German cities; or the reader will experience what those below experienced as they sat trembling in their bomb shelters awaiting that very same death from above. The reader will view up close the horrors of the Eastern Front during the last months of fighting and through the mud, blood and madness of combat they may come to understand how the same German soldiers, who only moments before had destroyed an enemy tank, could now risk their own lives to rescue the trapped Soviet crew inside. Readers will witness for themselves the fate of German women as the rampaging Red Army raped and murdered its way across Europe--all females, from "eight to eighty" feared the dreaded words, "Frau Komm." The worst nautical disasters in history which claimed thousands of lives, the greatest mass migration known to man in which millions perished, the fate of those wretched victims in post-war death camps and torture chambers, these and many other dark secrets of World War II now come to light in Hellstorm."--Publisher's information

A few hours later, nearly 200 men and boys lay dead, buildings, homes and human remains smoldered, and raiders raced for the safety of the Missouri border. It was the worst act of terrorism committed against civilians during the American Civil War. Survivors would rebuild and later recount their tales. Here is their story
