A poignant collection of the private thoughts, secret fears, & eyewitness accounts of soldiers under enemy fire. Vivid, moving, truthful, the letters & diaries selected for this volume by this historian afford intimate glimpses into the souls of ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances. Written from the battlefield, often from the front lines, the firsthand descriptions of military combat by common soldiers & junior officers lend to these never-before-published accounts a rawness of emotion & an immediacy that never make their way into history books. In its uniquely personal perspectives on military engagements ranging in time from the American Revolution & Napoleonic Wars through two world wars & the Vietnam conflict, this engrossing collection of testimony illuminates, too, the evolution of modern warfare. Whether written by an infantryman in the trenches of World War I or in camp by a relative Rommell or Napoleon, the personal eyewitness accounts in this remarkable book make poignantly intimate the military experience & the hell that is war

A documentary history of human rights : a record of the events, documents, and speeches that shaped our world( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawn from great speeches, constitutional documents, philosophy, private letters and diaries, religious works, and histories, the 300 extracts in this collection mark defining moments in the progress of humankind through four millennia on its path to political, religious, and intellectual freedom. This volume affirms human achievement on every page. Among its many and diverse voices are Anne Frank, Plato, Lillian Hellman, William Wordsworth, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Tom Paine, Sir Walter Raleigh, Demosthenes, Florence Nightingale, Winston Churchill, St. Francis, and Jesus. Their words find the sense in the variable course of human events, and their truths survive the vicissitudes of history. Arranged chronologically, the documents present centuries of truths that have set men and women free. Among the anthology's highlights are the last speech of Socrates, on his condemnation to death in 399 B.C; Nelson Mandela's 1964 speech from the dock; Emile Zola's "J'accuse," Peter Millar on the tearing down of the Berlin Wall; Thomas Paine's "The Rights of Man"; Mary Wollstonecraft's "Vindication of the Rights of Women"; former slave Frederick Douglass's open letter to his former master; Lion Feuchtwanger's letter to X, on the Nazi confiscation of his house; and Abelard writing to Heloise on eternal love."--Publisher's description

Here is everything from the land-based spirituality of their early creation myths and the late rise of Indian Pride, to the 88 uses to which the Sioux put the flesh and bones of the buffalo and the practice of berdache (men adopted as women). The book offers a chronological history of America's indigenous peoples. It covers their dramatic early entry into North America, o
The godfather by Jon E Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather (1972) marked a transition in American filmmaking, and its success as a work of art, as a creative property exploited by its studio, Paramount Pictures, as a model for aspiring filmmakers - changed Hollywood forever. Jon Lewis's study of the film looks at the significance of The Godfather in Hollywood's dramatic box-office turnaround in the 1970s and offers a critical and historical discussion of The Godfather's place within the crime and gangster film genre. Lewis focuses on the film as a commercial as well as an artistic landmark of American auteur cinema, as a singularly important film in Hollywood studio history and as a brilliant reworked modern genre picture that at once adopts and adapts the gangster film."--
