A companion to women's military history by Barton C Hacker( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military institutions have everywhere and always shaped the course of history, but women's near universal participation in them has largely gone unnoticed. This volume addresses the changing relationships between women and armed forces from antiquity to the present. The eight chapters in Part I present broad, scholarly reviews of existing literature to provide a clear understanding of where we stand. An extended picture essay documents visually women's military work since the sixteenth century. The book's third part comprises eight articles, more narrowly focused than the survey articles but illustrating some of their major themes. Military history will benefit from acknowledging women's participation, as will women's history from recognizing military institutions as major factors in molding women's lives

Astride two worlds : technology and the American Civil War by Barton C Hacker( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the middle of the nineteenth century, industrialization and military-technological innovation were beginning to alter drastically the character and conditions of warfare as it had been conducted for centuries. Occurring in the midst of these far-reaching changes, the American Civil War can justly be labeled both the last great preindustrial war and the first major war of the industrial age. Industrial capacity attained new levels of military significance as transportation improved, but in this, as in many other respects, the Civil War was distinctly transitional. Smoothbore artillery still dominated the battlefield, horse-drawn wagons and pack mules still carried the main logistic burden, seamstresses still outnumbered sewing-machine operators. Astride Two Worlds addresses the various causes and consequences of technological change for the course and outcome of the American Civil War
