How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem.

Winston Churchill: The Incredible Life And Legacy Of Winston Churchill

by Tom King

The Incredible Life and Legacy of Sir Winston Churchill takes an inside look the man whom many historians consider one of the greatest world leaders in modern history. But was he really that great?

Surviving a death defying injury before the age of twenty, taking responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of British sailors at the outset of war and befriending a man he loathed, we explore how he went from the trenches of France during the First World War to the conference tables of the Kremlin and the White House during the second world war and beyond.History has been kind to Winston Churchill, yet his many shortcomings have been glossed ov...

BUNKER 1945 - The Last Ten Days of ADOLF HITLER

In 1923 during the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, Adolf Hitler threatened to blow his brains out. Twenty-two years later, he did. April 1945 – Berlin. The world had been at war for more than five-and-a-half years – approximately seventy million people were dead across the globe. The epicentre of the twelve-year-old Third Reich was now surrounded, enveloped by bitter Soviet forces hardened by Nazi barbarity in the east over the last four years. As the buildings were blasted into rubble, pounded by Russian guns and bombs, before their troops and tanks, Hitler was hunkered down in his last headquarters – the dark and damp bunker under the Reich Chancellery. As the Third Reich began to crumble as fast as the city’s buildings, what was the state of mind of the tyrant? Only his closest and fan...

Mystical Ways of Nazi GermanyUnique modern and old world war technologyThis book is a collection of articles and notes that are united by the theme of mystical research and secret defense. In Nazi Germany in the 30-40 years these issues were given a lot of attention and, perhaps, if the miraculous things turned out to be true, our history would be quite different.Humanity has a funny trait: if we do not know something, then we include fantasy and attribute it to mystical or extraterrestrial traits. So there were reptiloids; so peaceful in general, the religion of voodoo has turned into a continuous uplift of the dead; so Tibetan medicine suddenly became a panacea, although before coming to the region of China people there lived up to 40 years.It is only natural that the Third Reich with it...

1914: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and World War I - Part one (A Tale of Two Nations Book 1)

“Austria-Hungary considers itself therefore from this moment in a state of war with Servia.” Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and his wife Sophie were shot and killed by Slavic nationalist Gavrilo Princip on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, Bosnia. The event, at first, was of little more than regional interest, but soon it became clear war clouds were enveloping Europe. In Canada, the news was met with excitement and pride. The nation committed to Great Britain 20,000 to 30,000 soldiers within two to three weeks, and there is a surplus of recruits. Meanwhile, in the United States, the government is focused on isolationism and neutrality. Capitalists and newspapers schemed about how Americans could profit from a war, and tourists refused to change thei...

“He tells us to be patient and polite. We have been both. We have never gained anything by being polite.”The Battle of the Somme drags on in Europe and witnesses a new weapon of war – the tank. The battle receives sparse coverage back home, however, as Canadians are preoccupied with a variety of home front problems. Meanwhile, the United States goes to the polls in a close election that pits Democrats against Republicans and Republicans against Democrats and Progressives. Suffragists also cease the moment and hope to get universal suffrage for women on the parties’ planks.This book is for anyone who has an interest in World War 1, the history of journalism, American history, Canadian history, political history or 20th century history....

The Grim Mysteries of Nazi Germany: Unique modern and old world war technology

by Dick W. Kerry

This book is of interest to readers with any level of knowledge about the “plague of the 20th century” - the Nazi Third Reich, which aspired to world domination. Having existed for only twelve years - from 1933 to May 1945 - the Third Reich, however, left behind a lot of great secrets and intractable mysteries, most of which have not been revealed and have not been solved so far.The post-war generations know little about the gigantic military power, the subtle cunning and absolute ruthlessness of Nazism, which our people crushed in a bloody war in the middle of the 20th century: the most terrible war in the history of mankind that killed hundreds of millions.The uniqueness of this book is that the author, on the basis of declassified archival documents, materials of foreign press and h...

The Soldier: The Dennis Polisano Story, a Vietnam Soldier

by Claudette Cleveland

_The Soldier_ is a tender and warm story of a young man, some would say a mere kid, who was sent into the service and then to an unpopular war that was half a world away. He was sent from a close and happy family in an ideal climate to a swamp that was infested with snakes, leeches and bugs of all kinds. That soldier is Vincent Dennis Polisano, who was nicknamed ‘Polly’ by an army sergeant at his first roll call.The story spans this soldier’s life from his beginning to now. It gives us all food for thought as to how the traumatic experiences as a soldier can influence a person’s life. It shows how the service took a young teenager with sparkling eyes of hope and two years later gave us back a young man whose eyes had dulled from the horrors he had seen.Even though this story featur...

Beyond the Wire: A Soldier's Perspective on the Iraq War

by Ross Bryan

Squinting from a one-two punch of exhaustion and the eerie faded-brass hue of a desert sun that doesn't take breaks and never seems to want to, I’m trying to decide just how in the hell I ended up here. Here, being Iraq. Cavalry Scout. In the Army for that matter. Perhaps if I thought long and hard enough I could remember. I knew for damn sure that I had no shortage of time to work it out.

My journey had started 6,250 miles to the west in a crumbling Ohio mill town called Ashtabula. I had spent the better part of a year at a 3rd shift job in a factory on the far end of town, trying not to lose myself in the mullets and meth of the American Midwest. Then came 9/11. The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. ...

Battle of Midway* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 had dealt a catastrophic blow to the United States Navy, but it had not knocked out all of the U.S. carriers. That was an omission that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, Japan’s fleet commander, intended to rectify by invading a site close to Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor had worked out well for the Japanese—why not try another one on Midway Island? The plan was to destroy the Americans when they launched a counterattack. Japan, then, would rule the Pacific and continue the expansion of its empire. What Yamamoto didn’t know was that Japanese fleet codes had been br...

D-Day (Britain's Home Front): A selection of anecdotes from the build-up and launch of D-Day in June 1944

by John Leete

This book contains a selection of anecdotes from some of the many people who experienced the build-up to and launch of D-Day in June 1944. These anecdotes are taken from original diary notes sourced from family records and county archives as well as from emails resulting from appeals for information placed in local newspapers. I also conducted personal interviews and, in the process, met people with great humility and with amazing stories to tell. I have had a fascination with the subject from my childhood curiosity with pillboxes and the many strange wartime structures I saw as I travelled with my family around the country. At age ten, I was given a tin helmet found in the garden of a house in the East End where my grandfather lived, and I subsequently started to collect ‘bits and piece...

His diary follows his subsequent adventures––from learning to ride horse with the 7th Cavalry and befriending Indian Scouts to surviving ambushes and water-boarding prisoners––all while serving in the American Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection and World War I.

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.
