The Women's Army Corps, 1945-1978 by Bettie J Morden( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Women's Army Corps makes a significant contribution to women's history and the history of the Army. Bettie J. Morden weaves the ideas and moral attitudes that existed in the middle decades of the twentieth century to chronicle thirty-three years of WAC history from V-J Day 1945 to 20 October 1978, when the Women's Army Corps was abolished by Public Law 95-584 and discontinued by Department of the Army General Order 20, with the WAC officers assimilated into the other branches of the Army (except the combat arms). For the most part taking a chronological approach, Morden focuses on the interaction of plans, decisions, and personalities that affected the WAC directors as they pushed and prodded the Army, the Department of Defense, and Congress to achieve Regular Army and Reserve status, military credit for Women's Army Auxiliary Corps service, and promotion above the grade of lieutenant colonel. The early WAC directors, according to Morden, had the task of fighting for progress and equity, whereas their successors fought a losing battle to keep entry standards high and to retain the corps' separate status. She provides readers with a comprehensive picture of WAC growth and development and the transformation in the status of Army women brought by the advent of the all-volunteer Army and the women's rights movement of the seventies

Moscow to Stalingrad : decision in the east by Earl F Ziemke( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second of a three-volume history of the German-Soviet conflict in World War II. In this volume, the German and Soviet forces initially confront each other on the approaches to Moscow, Leningrad, and Rostov in the late-1941 battles that produced the first major German setbacks of the war and gave the Soviet troops their first tastes of success. Later, the pendulum swings to the Germans' side, and their armies race across the Ukraine and into the Caucasus during the summer of 1942. In the course of a year, the Soviet Command goes from offensive to defensive and, finally, at Stalingrad, decisively to the offensive--meanwhile, frequently in desperate circumstances, building the strength and proficiency that will enable it to mount the relentless thrusts of the succeeding years. --Foreword
United States Army in Vietnam. the early years, 1941-1960 by Ronald H Spector( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advice and Support describes the activities of the U.S. Army in Vietnam during World War II, military advice and assistance to the French government during the immediate postwar years, and the advisory program that developed after the Geneva Agreements of 1954. Its scope ranges from high-level policy decisions to low-echelon advisory operations in the field, presented against a background of relevant military and political developments. Useful not only as a study of military assistance but as a view of the Army as an agent of national policy, Ronald Spector₂s interesting book is a fitting introduction to the overall study of the conflict in Vietnam

Portrait of an army by Center of Military History( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Army Art Collection has over 10,000 pieces of art which, taken together, provide a wide-ranging visual record of the activities of the U.S. Army, with a clear emphasis on the human dimension of a soldier's life, both in peacetime and in war. Portrait of an Army is a representative selection of work from that collection. The focus of the volume, like that of the artists themselves, is on the composite reality captured in each image, and on the interplay between related images, regardless of chronology. The result is a portrait in its truest sense: a distilling of experience, as remembered in selected, telling details. But it is also a collective portrait, a commemoration of those successive generations of men and women who have served the Army and their country so well. --from publisher's description
