Crusade in Europe by Dwight D Eisenhower( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 2,984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the pages of this book the single most important military figure of World War II has written the story that is destined to become the single most important record of that conflict. Here, from the hand of the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces, is the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned it and lived it. Through his eyes you can now see the whole gigantic drama of the war -- the strategy, the battles, the moments of fateful decision. Yet this is a warm and richly personal account. No personality among all those described is more clearly defined than that of Eisenhower himself. Through his own account of the long months of waiting and planning and working, through his description of the gradual formation of the great plans for victory, through his record of the history-making hours when the machinery of battle had been launched and could no longer be recalled, you come to know this great man as no one else could describe him to you. - Jacket flap
The gifts of the Jews : how a tribe of desert nomads changed the way everyone thinks and feels by Thomas Cahill( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gifts of the Jews reveals the critical change that made western civilization possible. Within the matrix of ancient religions and philosophies, life was seen as part of an endless cycle of birth and death; time was like a wheel, spinning ceaselessly. Yet somehow, the ancient Jews began to see time differently. For them, time had a beginning and an end; it was a narrative, whose triumphant conclusion would come in the future. From this insight came a new conception of men and women as individuals with unique destinies--a conception that would inform the Declaration of Independence--and our hopeful belief in progress and the sense that tomorrow can be better than today. As Thomas Cahill narrates this momentous shift, he also explains the real significance of such Biblical figures as Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the Pharaoh, Joshua, Isaiah, and Jeremiah

The ascent of man by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ascent of Man is nothing less than a full-scale history of science developed from the acclaimed thirteen-part BBC television series written by Jacob Bronowski, and traces the development of science as an expression of the special gifts that characterize man and that have made him unique among animal species. It journeys back through intellectual history in order to find 'the great monuments of human invention.' The author's informal history ranges throughout most of the western world, reaching into such out-of-the way places as Easter Island, Machu Picchu, Newton's library and Gauss's observatory, the Alhambra and the caves of Altamira. In each location, Bronowski considers the qualities of thought and imagination that compelled man first to analyze the physical world, and then to explore the invisible laws and structures above and beneath its surface. "Man ascends by discovering the fullness of his own gifts ... what he creates on the way are monuments to the stages in his understanding of nature and of self.""--Amazon.com

The right and the power : the prosecution of Watergate by Leon Jaworski( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secrets of Watergate were hidden by lies and deceit, and only one man had the right and the power to bring the White House to justice. In this book Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski for the first time explains and documents the details of the behind-the-scenes struggles for the White House tape recordings, the release of which culminated in a historic Supreme Court decision and the resignation of President Richard Nixon. It is the story of America's most traumatic experience in recent history, recounted by the man who knows the story best. The book identifies the maneuvers that created new legal precedents, making it must reading for everyone interested in courtroom proceedings. But it is also a story of grim thrusts and counterthrusts between Jaworski and his staff and the men who served the President: the inscrutable Fred Buzhardt, the suave soldier-diplomat Alexander Haig, the shrewd and energetic counsel for the President, James St. Clair. The book contains moments of great drama that have remained untold until now. There is the moment when Leon Jaworski first found evidence that could lead to the impeachment of the President -- and had to keep it secret while the President continued to proclaim his innocence. There is the moment when Alexander Haig, shocked to the core by what Jaworski was telling him, gazed out at the snow-covered White House grounds with tears in his eyes. There are moments when Jaworski found himself betrayed by broken promises, and decided that he had the right and the power to take the President to court. The book details the hard decisions made, the frightening gambles taken, the battle of the Supreme Court, the resignation of the President, the pardon. Above all, this is a story of personal courage. For when President Richard Nixon appointed Leon Jaworski as Special Watergate Prosecutor in November 1973, there was uneasy speculation in Congress that the new man from Texas was "the President's man." Newspapers editorialized against his appointment, and members of both the Senate and the House echoed their sentiments. Even the dedicated young lawyers of the Special Prosecution Force, who had seen their leader Archibald Cox stripped of his powers, were skeptical that Jaworski could do the job. Wasn't he a member of the Establishment, with easy access to the throne rooms of political and financial power? Wasn't he a political conservative? And old! How do you communicate with a man of sixty-eight? But Leon Jaworski quickly proved himself to be his own man. He always had been. A trial lawyer at age twenty, a prosecutor at the Nuremburg War Crimes trials, he had always championed the rights of society and the rights of the individual. Besides being President of the American Bar Association, he was a warm human being known to his peers as a brilliant legal strategist and tactician. And if his age worried his staff, he quickly bridged the gap of generations by his words and deeds. Leon Jaworski is a man who serves justice and his story of one of the greatest legal battles in American history makes unforgettable reading. - Jacket flap
Present at the creation; my years in the State Department by Dean Acheson( Book )

Wartime : understanding and behavior in the Second World War by Paul Fussell( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 2,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... in 'Wartime, ' Fussell turns to the Second World War, the conflict he himself fought in, to weave a narrative that is both more intensely personal and more wide-ranging ... Here Fussell examines the immediate impact of the war on common soldiers and civilians. He describes the psychological and emotional atmosphere of World War II. He analyzes the wishful thinking and the euphemisms people needed to deal with unacceptable reality (the early belief, for instance, that the war could be won by 'precision bombing, ' that is, by long distance); he describes the abnormally intense frustration of desire and some of the means by which desire was satisfied; and, most important, he emphasizes the damage the war did to intellect, discrimination, honesty, individuality, complexity, ambiguity and wit ... He examines ... how the great privations of wartime (when oranges would be raffled off as valued prizes) resulted in roccoco prose styles that dwelt longingly on lavish dinners, and how the 'high-mindedness' of the era and the almost pathological need to 'accentuate the positive' invited the downfall of the acerbic H.L. Mencken and the ascent of E.B. White. He also offers astute commentary on Edmund Wilson's argument with Archibald MacLeish, Cyril Connolly's 'Horizon' magazine, the war poetry of Randall Jarrell and Louis Simpson, and many other aspects of the wartime literary world ... For the past fifty years, the Allied war has been sanitized and romanticized almost beyond recognition by 'the sentimental, the loony patriotic, the ignorant, and the bloodthirsty.' Americans, he says, have never understood what the Second World War was really like ... [and] he offers such an understanding
