Harold D. Lasswell Propaganda Technique in the World War

2013 Reprint of 1938 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Harold Lasswell (1902-1978) was a prominent scholar in the area of propaganda research. He focused on conducting both quantitative and qualitative analyses of propaganda, understanding the content of propaganda, and discovering the effect of propaganda on the mass audience. Lasswell is credited with creating the mass communication procedure of content analysis. Lasswell maintained that a content analysis should take into account the frequency with which certain symbols appear in a message, the direction in which the symbols try to persuade the audience's opinion, and the intensity of the symbols used. By understanding the content of the message, Lasswell sought to achieve the goal of understanding the "stream of influence that runs from control to content and from content to audience." Lasswell's most well-known content analyses were an examination of the propaganda content during World War One and Two. In "Propaganda Technique in the World War,' Lasswell examined propaganda techniques through a content analysis, and came to some striking conclusions. Lasswell was similar to Ellul, in that he showed that the content of war propaganda had to be pervasive in all aspects of the citizen's life in order to be effective. Furthermore, Lasswell sought to demonstrate that as more people were reached by this propaganda, the war effort would...

Edward Bernays Propaganda

"Bernays' honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies."-Noam ChomskyA seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays (1891-1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed "engineering of consent." During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would "Make the World Safe for Democracy." The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.

Edward Bernays Propaganda

“Bernays’ honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies.”—Noam Chomsky“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”—Edward Bernays, PropagandaA seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays (1891–1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed “engineering of consent.” During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would “Make the World Safe for Democracy.” The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.Bernays applied the techniques he had learned in the CPI and, incorporating some of the ideas of Walter Lipmann, became an outspoken proponent of propaganda as a tool for democratic and corporate manipulation of the population. His 1928 bombshell Propaganda lays out his eerily prescient vision for using propaganda to regiment the collective mind in a variety of areas, including governmen...

Don Heddesheimer The First Holocaust. The Surprising Origin of the Six-Million Figure

Most people believe that roughly six million Jews were killed by National Socialist Germany during World War II in an event generally referred to as the Holocaust or the Shoah. But how long have we known about this six-million figure? The most frequent answer is that the six-million figure was established after the Second World War during the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.Although it is true that the six-million figure was declared to be the indubitable truth at this tribunal, it is actually remarkably older. In this book, Don Heddesheimer shows that the six-million figure dates back to a Jewish fundraising campaign that started during the FIRST World War and reached its peak in the mid-1920s. During those years, Jewish groups in the United States spread the rumor that millions of Jews in Europe were suffering to the degree that millions had died already, while many more millions would face a lingering death. The New York Times was the main vehicle for such propaganda, which even included well-known buzzwords like "extermination," "holocaust," and the now famous "six million" figure.Although this exaggerated propaganda of Jewish suffering slowed down during the 1930s, it never completely ceased and received new momentum in the 1940s during the Second World War. As we all know today, this propaganda skyrocketed after Germany's total defeat, as the victorious nations of the Second World War seized upon the opportunity to take advantage...

Brendan Gillespie World War I in the Middle East. How the Allied campaigns in the Sinai and Palestine rebuked the popular definitions of World War I era warfare

Document from the year 2016 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Ages of World Wars, grade: A, The Ohio State University, language: English, abstract: World War I is most often explained in the context of how it was the terminal turning point in how warfare was waged, namely that World War I was when the weapons of industrial powers outpaced the type of head-on collision of massive numbers of men that had been the preemptive military strategy for millennia. This paper does not attempt to dispute this argument, instead it argues that while World War I was undoubtedly "a war that changed war", there was a campaign waged between major powers in World War I that can be deemed "traditional" in the sense that men and their actions decided the fate and outcome, versus the manufactured warfare fought elsewhere, especially the western front in Europe. This campaign was the war waged in the Middle East between the British and the Ottoman Turks over the contested territory of Palestine, which may well have been one of the last "traditional" campaigns fought on this Earth.By using primary sources from World War I and more contemporary material, this paper will compare how drastically different the Palestine campaign was compared to how people view World War I in popular memory. World War I often gets "squeezed" into an easy definition that can explain a truly "world" war. It is important for historians, students of history, and everyda...

With the German Empire destroyed, a new system of government was about to emerge. With great financial struggles and high unemployment came the beginning of political differences that would overpower the government. It was then that a weak government system would be blamed on one culture and one faith, as political unrest would spark one of the largest Nazi propaganda schemes in history, and one of the greatest misfortunes that would ever be experienced by a people.

Mike Richardson Keeping The Old Flag Flying. The World War 1 Memoir of Kenneth Basil Foyster Canadian Soldier, Prisoner and Internee

During the 1st World War, thousands of captured Allied combatants were dispatched to neutral countries to await the end of the conflict. Their stories are seldom told. English-born Canadian soldier Kenneth Foyster was one of them. He fought at Ypres in 1915, was wounded, captured, imprisoned then found himself interned in the mountains of Switzerland. After the war, he penned an extensive memoir describing in vivid detail all these successive experiences.British author Mike Richardson has taken this account and put it into the context of contemporary world events. The result is a fascinating insight into one man’s military adventures; from the woods of British Columbia, to the intensity of the battlefield, and on to the snowy highlands of the Alps.

Cluade R. Sasso, Combat Studies Institute Soviet Night Operations in World War II

Originally published in 1982, this a volume in the Combat Studies Institute "Leavenworth Papers" series. Abstract: "Night combat has frequently been the recourse of the inferior military force or, as in World War II, of the army seeking either to find some respite from air power or to reduce casualties in the face of great firepower. Still, despite the difficulties associated with conducting military operations at night, military planners and leaders cannot escape one salient fact: darkness is a double-edged weapon. During World War II, the Soviets effectively exploited darkness in a variety of operations from withdrawal to pursuit. As the war dragged on, the Red Army relied increasingly on night operations and so refined its abilities that it was able to progress from limited tactical missions by relatively small units to front-level operations by armies with complex coordination and control. Today Soviet military writers frequently discuss night operations, as they do all operations, with reference to their experiences in the Second World War. They appear convinced, as one Soviet general and historian has noted, that their troops should be equally capable of operating both during the day and at night and that night operations have an urgent significance in modern warfare".

Kate Pullinger Letter To An Unknown Soldier: A New Kind of War Memorial

On Platform One of Paddington Station in London, there is a statue of an unknown soldier; he’s reading a letter. On the hundredth anniversary of the declaration of war everyone in the country was invited to take a moment and write that letter. A selection of those letters are published here, in a new kind of war memorial – one made only of words.In a year of public commemoration ‘Letter to an Unknown Soldier’ invited everyone to step back from the public ceremonies and take a few private moments to think. Providing a space for people to reconsider the familiar imagery we associate with the war memorials – cenotaphs, poppies, and silence – it asked the following questions: if you could say what you want to say about that war, with all we’ve learned since 1914, with all your own experience of life and death to hand, what would you say? If you were able to send a personal message to this soldier, a man who served and was killed during World War One, what would you write?The response was extraordinary. The invitation was to everyone and, indeed, all sorts of people responded: schoolchildren, pensioners, students, artists, nurses, serving members of the forces and even the Prime Minister. Letters arrived from all over the United Kingdom and beyond, and many well-known writers and personalities contributed.Opening on 28th June 2014, the centenary of the Sarajevo assassinations, and closing at 11 pm on the night of 4 August 2014, the centenary of the moment when Prime Minister Asquith announced to the House of Commons that Britain had joined the First World War, this book offers a snapshot of what people in this country and across the world were thinking and feeling about the centenary of World War One.

Forgotten Voices of Burma

From the end of 1941 to 1945 a pivotal but often overlooked conflict was being fought in the South-East Asian Theatre of World War 2 - the Burma Campaign. In 1941 the Allies fought in a disastrous retreat across Burma against the Japanese - an enemy more prepared, better organised and more powerful than anyone had imagined. Yet in 1944, following key battles at Kohima and Imphal, and daring operations behind enemy lines by the Chindits, the Commonwealth army were back, retaking lost ground one bloody battle at a time. Fighting in dense jungle and open paddy field, this brutal campaign was the longest fought by the British Commonwealth in the Second World War. But the troops taking part were a forgotten army, and the story of their remarkable feats and their courage remains largely untold to this day. The Fourteenth Army in Burma became one of the largest and most diverse armies of the Second World War. British, West African, Ghurkha and Indian regiments fought alongside one another and became comrades. In Forgotten Voices of Burma - a remarkable new oral history taken from Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive - soldiers from both sides tell their stories of this epic conflict.
Montgomery Belgion Victors. Justice Montgomery Belgion Victors. Justice Новинка

Montgomery Belgion Victors. Justice

Nothing is to be gained after a war by the punishment of the vanquished by the victors, even if the vanquished have been to blame for the war itself. It now seems more probable than ever that for victors to assert after a war the 'war guilt' of the vanquished serves but to disguise the real sources of international disturbance. Possibly it is because the western victors in 1919 did not recognize the moral basis of international relations that war returned to Europe and to the world in 1939. Possibly it is because the western victors again in 1945 did not recognize the moral basis of those relations that the world was treated to the spectacle of victors' justice, a.k.a. 'the Nuremberg Trial', and one more great war had ended without leading men's feet into the way of peace.

Peter Münz Contrary Experiences Peter Münz Contrary Experiences Новинка

Peter Münz Contrary Experiences

The First World War began with enthusiastic flag-waving, aggressive propaganda and poets who glorified the conflict with the abstract ideal of dying for one's patria. Mingled with the conviction of the enemy's war guilt and the belief in the justice of the own cause, these things formed a psychological amalgamation which caused a total blindness to what modern mass warfare would really mean. Only those in the eye of the storm soon came to regard the conduct of their political leaders and military commanders as a universal failure in leadership and responsibility. The soldiers who wrote about their bleak war experience produced a Literature of Disillusion. Borne out of the blood and corrugated soil of the Western Front it expressed the front-fighter's estrangement from those who did not live through the war's horrors, while it evoked the solid bond between those who did, a bond that even embraced the enemy. But how in particular did the British soldier view his German opponent and what kind of experiences shaped his views? And how is the attitude to the foe processed in the Literature of the Western Front? "Contrary Experiences" explores many examples of Great War writing that give an answer to these questions and assesses them against the background of both the anti-German propaganda of the Home Front and the psychological requirements of trench warfare. The findings not only demonstrate that the Great War, despite its unprecedented horrors, still offe...

Thomas Löwer American Jews in World War I - German Propaganda Courting the American Jewry

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject History - Miscellaneous, grade: A, Juniata College, language: English, abstract: In early August 1914, the first days of World War I, Germany's attention was focused on the United States. The world's biggest economic power had so far remained neutral and was therefore the field of the "Krieg der Geiste" (War of Minds). England tried to push the United States into the war against the Central Powers and Germany tried to keep the United States out of the war and worked through diplomatic efforts to ensure that the US stayed completely neutral.The German Empire saw Americans of the Jewish faith as major allies in this effort. Many of these American Jews were powerful financiers, including immigrants from both Germany and Russia. The German Empire hoped that it had the support of the highly influential Jewish bankers as well as of many Jewish -American voters.The sources on which the research is based are former works of the German propaganda efforts in the United States, material from the New York Times and accounts of contemporary people.This research will show how the German Empire tried to win and keep the favor of these particular groups of Americans and why they hoped that the American Jews were on their side, what measures German Jews made to achieve this goal and why it ultimately failed.

Max Hastings All Hell Let Loose: The World at War 1939-1945

Maps best viewed on a tablet.A magisterial history of the greatest and most terrible event in history, from one of the finest historians of the Second World War. A book which shows the impact of war upon hundreds of millions of people around the world – soldiers, sailors and airmen; housewives, farm workers and children.‘Unquestionably the best single-volume history of the war ever written’ SUNDAY TIMES.All Hell Let Loose reflects Max Hastings’s thirty-five years of research on World War II, and describes not just the course of events, but an epic tale of human experience, from campaign to campaign, continent to continent.This magisterial book ranges across a vast canvas, from the Russian front, where more than 90% of all German soldiers who perished met their fate, to the agony of Poland amid the September 1939 Nazi invasion, and the 1943 Bengal famine, in which at least a million people died under British rule – and British neglect. Some of Hastings’s insights and judgements will surprise students of the conflict, while there are vivid descriptions of the tragedies and triumphs of a host of ordinary people, in uniform and out of it.This is ‘everyman’s story’, an attempt to answer the question: ‘What was the Second World War like?’, and also an overview of the big picture. Max Hastings employs the technique which has made many of his previous books best-sellers, combining top-down analysis and bottom-up testimony to explore the meaning of this vast conflict both for its participants and for posterity.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Moderne Geschichte, Note: 2,0, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Propaganda der NSDAP war revolutionär und erfolgsversprechend. Doch wie bewerkstelligte die NSDAP die Legitimierung vieler antijüdischer Maßnahmen durch die Propaganda in der Bevölkerung? Diese Arbeit versucht, sich einer Antwort zu nähern.Der Forschungsstand des Themas nationalsozialistischer Propaganda und Antisemitismus ist sehr breit gefächert und viele Historiker und Historikerinnen sind sich einig, dass die nationalsozialistische Propaganda eine Mystifizierung der Allmacht und Unwiderstehlichkeit umgibt, die trotz zahlreicher Ansatzpunkte zu keinem eindeutigen Ergebnis gelangt.Um eine schrittweise Annäherung der Fragestellung erzielen zu können, inwiefern die antisemitische NS-Propaganda Einfluss auf die öffentliche Meinung der Bevölkerung nahm und zu radikalen und gewalttätigen Übergriffen führte, wird zunächst die grundlegende nationalsozialistische Propaganda genauer definiert.

Frederick Mortimer Clapp A History of the 17th Aero Squadron. An American Squadron on the Western Front During the First World War

Episodes from the United States first war in the airThe United States of America joined the Allies in the First World War in April of 1917. While the addition of its enormous resource of men and military personnel was undoubtedly pivotal in a war that had become one of attrition against a much war weakened enemy which was struggling alone, it was inevitable that the history of the American units engaged on land, sea or in the air would concern the latter battles of the conflict. For the airmen themselves, including those of the American 17th Aero Squadron whose exploits this book details, that made far less difference than it would to most military personnel. The air war was new, the flying machines were flimsy and primitive and the business of fighting in the skies was being defined by the young men who fought and died above the surface of the earth. All knew that the life of a pilot was perilous and likely to be short. This is an essential book for those interested in the First World War in the skies over the Western Front-and in the early days of what was to become one of the greatest air forces in the world. Many of the activities of the 17th Aero Squadron were focussed on the Dunkirk front and in its support of the British battle and advances during the fighting at Cambrai. The book includes an interesting view of a low bombing and machine gun attack on the Varssenaere Aerodrome. Also included are many combat reports by the squadron's pilots and these make fascinatin...

A lively, engaging history of The Great War written for a new generation of readers In recent years, scholarship on World War I has turned from a fairly narrow focus on military tactics, weaponry, and diplomacy to incorporate considerations of empire, globalism, and social and cultural history. This concise history of the first modern, global war helps to further broaden the focus typically provided in World War I surveys by challenging popular myths and stereotypes to provide a new, engaging account of The Great War. The conventional World War I narrative that has evolved over the past century is that of an inevitable but useless war, where men were needlessly slaughtered due to poor decisions by hidebound officers. This characterization developed out of a narrow focus on the Western Front promulgated mainly by British historians. In this book, Professor Proctor provides a broader, more multifaceted historical narrative including perspectives from other fronts and spheres of interest and a wider range of participants. She also draws on recent scholarship to consider the gendered aspect of war and the ways in which social class, religion, and cultural factors shaped experiences and memories of the war. Structured chronologically to help convey a sense of how the conflict evolved Each chapter considers a key interpretive question, encouraging readers to examine the extent to which the war was total, modern, and global Challenges outdated stereotypes created through a focus on the Western Front Considers the war in light of recent scholarship on empire, global history, gender, and culture Explores ways in which the war and the terms of peace shaped the course of the 20th century World War I: A Short History is sure to become required reading in undergraduate survey courses on WWI, as well as courses in military history, the 20th century world, or the era of the World Wars.

Frank Herbert Simonds History of the World War

"The World War, entering its thirty-fourth month, as these lines are written, has had three distinct phases, both on the military side and on the larger and more significant human side. The three military phases are supplied by the Marne campaign and its immediate consequences; the Russian campaign, with its Balkan episode and its Verdun ending; the Allied offensive in the west, which began at the Somme in July, 1916, and is still proceeding before Arras and along the old Aisne battlefield.I have striven to make this book an American comment upon a world war, and no one can be more conscious than am I of its limitations." [...]This is the first volume of the five volume series on the history of World War I.This volume describes the events surrounding the beginning of the first world war in France in an impressive and captivating way. With many details and photos of the war events, the reader is taken with at the time of the early 20th century.The author, Frank H. Simonds, was a living witness of the war. He lived from 1878 - 1936.This particular book is an unchanged reprint of the long out of print original edition from 1919.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Historisches, Note: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Institut für Politikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Wahlen und Wählerverhalten im Deutschen Reich, 24 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Konzept der Propaganda erscheint uns heute fremd und wie ein Relikt aus alten Tagen. Früher noch ganz offen unter dem Terminus Propaganda praktiziert und ebenso erforscht, versteckt sich der gleiche Inhalt in den westlichen Ländern seit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges hinter wohlklingenderen Namen wie zum Beispiel Werbung oder Wahlkampf. Gleich geblieben ist jedoch sowohl die Hoffnung der Produzenten auf als auch die Furcht der Rezipienten vor einer Allmacht der Propaganda.Übertragen auf den Nationalsozialismus stellt sich hierbei die Frage, wie groß die Wirkung der NS- Propaganda tatsächlich war und in welchem Maße sie der NSDAP zum Aufstieg verholfen hat. Bestand die Propaganda der Nationalsozialisten tatsächlich, wie Stanislaw Jerzy Lec es ausdrückt, aus Worten, „die so leer sind, dass man ganze Völker darin gefangen halten kann", oder ist die Wirkung der NS- Propaganda eher dem „Legendenschatz der Geschichte" (Paul 1990: 261) zuzuordnen?Diese Arbeit beleuchtet die Propagandaleistungen der Nationalsozialisten vor ihrer Regierungsübernahme von verschiedenen theoretischen Blickwinkeln aus untersucht, welche Rolle die Propaganda bei den Wahlerfolgen der NSDAP spielte...

2nd Edition Partnership in Blood: Volume One Can a desperate wizard and a bitter, disillusioned vampire find a way to build the partnership that could save their world? In a world rocked by magical war, vampires are seen by many as less than human, as the stereotypical creatures of the night who prey on others. But as the war intensifies, the wizards know they need an advantage to turn the tide in their favor: the strength and edge the vampires can give them in the battle against the dark wizards who seek to destroy life as they know it. In a dangerous move and show of good will, the wizards ask the leader of the vampires to meet with them, so that they might plead their cause. One desperate man, Alain Magnier, and one bitter, disillusioned vampire, Orlando St. Clair, meet in Paris, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance of their decision: Will the vampires join the cause and form a partnership with the wizards to win the war? This second edition received minor revision and proofing for re-release in honor of the publication of Partnership Reborn, the final book in the series.

George Arthur, Sir George Arthur Life of Lord Kitchener, (Three Volumes in One)

In this sweeping 1920 biography of Horatio Herbert Kitchener, better known as Lord Kitchener, Sir George Arthur shines a bright light on the British military leader and statesman who, during World War I, organized armies on an unprecedented scale and became famous as the face on British recruitment posters. Originally published as a three-volume set, it is presented here in an omnibus edition.Volume I covers Kitchener's birth in Ireland in 1850 to his placement as commander-in-chief of the Boer War in 1900. Volume II continues with his years in India, his pro-consulship in Egypt, and his departure for England in 1914 on the eve of World War I. Volume III documents his many campaigns and recruitment efforts during World War I until his dramatic death at sea in 1916. Written only four years after his death, this valuable historical account by a friend and contemporary offers a look behind the handlebar mustache and pointing finger of the man whose "Your country needs YOU" posters later inspired those of the United States during World War II.British writer SIR GEORGE ARTHUR (1860-1946) also wrote A Septuagenarian's Scrapbook, Not Worth Reading, and the three-volume Life of Lord Kitchener.

First study of the fascinating parallelism that characterizes developments in Japan and Germany by one of Germany's leading Japan specialists.With the founding of their respective national states, the Meiji Empire in 1869 and the German Reich in 1871, Japan and Germany entered world politics. Since then both countries have developed in strikingly similar ways, and it is not surprising that these two became close allies during the Second World War, although in the end this proved a "fatal attraction."

Sun Tzu, Lionel Giles The Art of War: The oldest military treatise in the world

The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has had a huge influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu recognized the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations. The Art of War has also been applied to business and managerial strategies.

A. J. L. Scott Sixty Squadron R.A.F. On the Western Front During the First World War

Britain's 'Knights of the Air' over the TrenchesThis is the story of a famous squadron of the Royal Flying Corps-later the RAF-during the Great War on the Western Front. At the outbreak of war there were just four British squadrons on active service and their function was primarily a reconnaissance one. Air fighting was practically unknown. As the war progressed and aircraft development moved with it both they and the squadrons who flew them began to take on specialised roles. The day of the 'bomber' and 'fighter' had arrived. Squadron No 60 was born at the very beginning of this time of 'specialisation.' Its aircraft were termed-perhaps coyly-'Scouts,' but their purpose was principally to engage in a warfare new to the history of the world-air to air combat. This was a squadron created to fight and its aircraft were piloted by young men who had come to fight. The ace Albert Ball was at one point one of their number. Predictably the squadron saw much action and sustained the heavy casualties well known among the 'cloud cavalry' of the First World War. An engaging book for all those interested in early aviation. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket.

Muuz Haftamu Narrative Time in Yalsekene Zema

Time is one of the fundamental categories of human life experience in real and fictional world. Time can be represented in a narrative texts when it is said that time is one of the basic elements in the human experience of a fictional world. Time is almost the first thing that readers become aware of as he or she reads fiction. Because time in narrative, as Genette (1980) put it, treats the possibilities of temporal arrangements and presentations. In general, time in a narrative text deals with order, duration, and frequency of events in a narrative. For this reason, I choose to work on narrative technique, which is Narrative Time, and on the chosen novel because; firstly, Narrative Time is one big technique that contributes a lot to the development and interpretation of the novel under investigation; secondly, this work will narrow the gap that is found between the modern narrative techniques and current Ethiopian novels that couldn't get the attention of different scholars. Thus the Ethiopian novel entitled "Yalsekene Zema" is analyzed from three facets of Narrative Time; Order, Duration, and Frequency.

Arthur Cole Poems for a Lost Generation

I was introduced to World War One poetry in the early 60's by my then English Literature teacher Mr David John, who is sadly now deceased. Mr John was a young teacher at the time, with new ways of getting students to enjoy literature through history, hence the First World War. He introduced us to the war poets like Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Rupert Brooke, amongst others. Mr John made our lessons interesting and many of us questioned the futility of the war, even though we were so young. I left school at sixteen and then began my working career and later married life, so I didn't do anything with regard to poetry, however I still took an interest in World War One documentaries. It wasn't until I retired that I toyed with the idea of writing war poetry. I wrote my first war poem at the beginning of 2016, entitled 'War Horse' and my writing has just developed from there, resulting in the publication of this book. We must never forget the sacrifices that were made in this war of all wars, on both sides. Many young men thought it was just a game of war, how wrong they were. I hope the book does justice to those who fought and survived and those who sadly never returned to their families, many of whom are buried in far foreign fields. May they all Rest In Peace.

Egon Harings Germany and two World Wars

The Austrian Archduke and his wife were killed in Sarajevo by a Bosnian Serb. This double murder led to Austria's declaration of war on Serbia. That, in turn, was one reason why Russia declared war on Austria, which in turn led Germany to declare war on Russia. Other states followed Russia and the First World War, the most gruesome war the world has ever experienced, began. In the end, Germany and Austria lost the war and had to give up big parts of their countries. The consequence was hunger and suffering of the own population. This, in turn, was the ideal breeding ground for the terror of the nationalist movement. Hitler comes to power. Austria became a part of the German Reich again. The country of the Sudeten was annexed and Hitler demanded more. It is the time of the Nazi rule. The world is facing a war again. -- We write 1 September 1939 and a new cruel wartime began. It's the Second World War with holocaust and gassing millions of Jews, as well as millions of victims worldwide. Germany loses this war. Now the German population itself could feel what the Nazis had done to others. It began with the great flight of millions of Germans from the territories that had been under German rule for centuries. Then followed the expulsion of millions of Germans from the eastern territories and the Czech Sudetenland. Millions had to live in the rubble caused by the war. Many were starving because there was not enough food for everyone.Also about artists, scientists and inven...

Quartz crystal-a technology that changed the tide of World War II Some of the defining leaps in technology in the twentieth century occurred during the Second World War, from radar to nuclear energy. Often left out of historical discussions are quartz crystals, which proved to be just as pivotal to the Allied victory-and to post-war development-as other technologies. Quartz crystals provided the U.S. military, for the first time, with reliable communication on the front lines, and then went on to become the core of some of the most basic devices of the post-war era, from watches, clocks, and color televisions, to cell phones and computers. In Crystal Clear, Richard Thompson relates the story of the quartz crystal in World War II, from its early days as a curiosity for amateur radio enthusiasts, to its use by the United States Armed Forces. It follows the intrepid group of scientists and engineers from the Office of the Chief Signal Officer of the U.S. Army as they raced to create an effective quartz crystal unit. They had to find a reliable supply of radio-quality quartz; devise methods to reach, mine, and transport the quartz; find a way to manufacture quartz crystal oscillators rapidly; and then solve the puzzling «aging problem» that plagued the early units. Ultimately, the development of quartz oscillators became the second largest scientific undertaking in World War II after the Manhattan Project. Bringing to light a little-known aspect of World War II, Crystal Clear offers a glimpse inside one of the most significant efforts in the annals of engineering.

James Holland Twenty-One: Coming of Age in World War II

World War II affected the lives of ordinary men and women more directly than any other conflict before or since.This is an unprecedented look at the lives of twenty-one young men who answered their country’s call to arms and left their homes to fight in unfamiliar and far-reaching corners of the globe.Many never returned, and those who did found their homes and countries much changed by long years of war. Most discovered they had become different people: having seen death and destruction on a scale they had never imagined they would witness, the return to civilian life was often far from easy.Now, more than sixty years on, this remarkable generation is fading. Most are now over eighty and around the world more than two thousand veterans of the war are passing away every day.In this new book ‘Sunday Times’ bestselling author James Holland recounts the real-life stories of twenty-one young men from around the world who served in different services and theatres of the war.Whether it be the Byers brothers from Canada or Bill Laity from Cornwall, Wlad Rubnikowicz from Poland or Tom Finney from Preston, each began the war with little idea of what lay in store; and yet, each displayed astonishing courage, fortitude and resilience, united by a sense of honour and duty, and bound by the fellowship of their comrades. Often reacting in very different ways to the strange and frequently terrifying situations in which they found themselves, they each suffered hardships and loss, making sacrifices that have ensured a lasting peace amongst the warring nations; and if some of these survivors are perplexed by how the world has developed, none doubts the value of what they did all those years ago.Moving, poignant, and conveying all the drama, tension and fear experienced in war, ‘Twenty-One’ is an uplifting tribute to a passing generation, describing the wide range of experiences and extremes these remarkable men and women witnessed during World War II.Note that it has not been possible to include the same picture content that appeared in the original print version.

C. A. Rose, Hugh Dalton With the Guns. Two First Hand Accounts of British Gunners at War in Europe During World War 1- Three Years in France with the Guns an

Two books in one volume-two first hand accounts by British subalterns in contrasting theatres of the Great WarThe first of the books in this double volume tells of the activities of a battery of the Royal Field Artillery-one of the many horse drawn units of guns and gunners who fought an arduous, heroic, dangerous and often tragic war on the Western Front during World War 1, often trading shell for shell with the German Artillery. The words of the author, a young artillery officer, draw the reader into the heart of the intimate group that constituted the gun battery. The story of him, his brother officers and their men embraces the battles of Loos, the Ypres Salient, Messines, Third Ypres, Cambrai, Arras and finally the breakthrough of the allied armies at the Hindenburg Line which heralded the end of the war in 1918.In the second book we learn about the largely unreported contribution the British made towards the Italian war effort. As a member of one of ten batteries of artillery sent to Italy in 1917, the author served in the campaign in the Alps including the actions at Isonzo, Piave and the retreat from Caporetto. Present on the Italian front until the rout of the Austrians in the Veneto and final victory, he provides rare information about the British at war on this 'sideshow' front, valuable details about guns and battery life and an insight into the personalities and activities of his Italian alliesWith the Guns brings the campaigns of the field gunners back t...

War and Literature. Looking Back on 20th Century Armed Conflicts.

This comprehensive volume analyzes the radical change in the nature of armed conflicts and in the way they are narrated and represented. Ever since the First World War has changed war itself, rendering meaningless the very vocabulary of war in terms such as "battle", "front", "non-combatant", "open city" and "hero", new words, new approaches, new theories and new texts had to be invented. The enemy became invisible: Submarines, tanks, mines, gas, long-range artillery, and airplanes made this war different from all the other that came before. A hundred years after the beginning of this terrible war, it is now time to recall different representations of the armed conflicts of the 20th century. The articles in this collection analyze representations of the Canudos Civil War in Brazil, the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the colonial wars in Africa, and the war in Afghanistan, aiming to understand how war and the telling of war have changed during the most murderous hundred years in the history of mankind.
