This is an account of the men of Mid Cheshire who answered the call to arms in 1914 and the families they left behind as reported in the local press of the time. The book tells the story of how they joyfully went to war believing it would be "All over by Christmas" before eventually discovering its true horror. You can read how the Cheshire Regiment made a gallant stand at Audregnies which saved the BEF after the Battle of Mons but cost them 78% of their compliment. You will also read of the people at home who tried to carry on without them. How they raised funds to support the war and made "comforts" for their men at the Front and how they gave succour to the many Belgian refugees who came to the area having fled from the German hordes who had invaded their country. On a lighter note you will be informed of the local sports results and of the many people found to be "Drunk and Disorderly" and their punishments. But most of all it is about the men who when the call came to do their duty did so without a moment's hesitation, we should all be proud of their bravery and sacrifice and never forget them.

Growing up, Luke Dryden was dominated by all things military; he is a natural for the army. So it is no surprise that he becomes a member of Special Air Services, the pride of Britain's Army. The SAS involves action, adventure, individual accomplishment, and comradeship without equal to any army in the world. What more could a British soldier ask for? For years, Dryden serves his country well. But he soon becomes disillusioned by his country's leaders who seem to have no regard for the safety and well-being of its citizens, especially its armed forces. Twelve years of government by a gang of political revisionists headed by Tony Blair has reduced the United Kingdom to the status of a banana republic. High-placed leaders within the military are fed up, including Colonel Jock Wingate. He envisions a military takeover of the government to save the country from those who seek to destroy it. Wingate recruits the talented Major Dryden to join the movement and become a fifth columnist working underground. But the goal to topple the diabolical New Labor Party will not be an easy one.
The first work to provide a comparative look at how newspapers in England, France, Russia, Germany, and Austro-Hungary explained the war, this study includes and analyzes translations of contemporary newspaper articles.
"A deeply important study of how African Americans' daily lives affected their perception of military service and, in turn, how their treatment (or mistreatment) by the Army ricocheted back on their day-to-day lives."--Frank W. Sweet, author of "Legal History of the Color Line."
It is September 1, 1939. Its territorial demands rejected, Germany invades Poland. Overwhelmed Poles capitulate. Their government takes exile in France where it forms a new army. The German invasion leaves Edmund Stawowy, 18, who works as an interpreter for a French construction company building a dam in Poland, out of work. He takes refuge in a nearby village. The Germans intend to finish the dam but can't find the plans. They think Edmund knows where they are. Gestapo agents locate Edmund and ask him to collaborate. But does he? Later, while listening to Radio Paris on a clandestine radio, Edmund hears a special Polish government communiqué that Poland is not defeated; it will continue fighting the Germans from France and urges all Poles to join the fight. Spurred by patriotism, Edmund vows to go to France to enlist. But France is a long way from Poland whose borders are sealed by the Germans. But Edmund is determined. While crossing the Polish Slovak border, German border patrols apprehend him. He is interrogated and thrown in jail where he contracts scurvy. After five weeks of living in inhumane conditions, he is deported to Germany as a slave laborer. There, he falls in love with a German girl, something strictly forbidden by the Nazis. After a year of planning an escape, and in trouble with the police; Edmund is nearly beaten to death. The Gestapo is about to send him to a concentration camp, but he escapes to occupied France. In Paris, he visits his former employers. They cannot employ a fugitive in occupied France, he is told. They advise him to go to the unoccupied zone where the company is building a dam on the Rhone River. After a three week stay in Paris and an ardent romance with a young Parisian prostitute, Edmund sets off for the unoccupied zone. While crossing the demarcation line in Chalons-sur-Saone, he is again apprehended by the Germans, interrogated then thrown in solitary for one month. Upon his release he tries another crossing, but is caught again. This time he is made to work as an interpreter at a German border police outpost. He is again thrown in solitary for another two weeks. On his third try, he makes it into the unoccupied zone and heads for Génissiat site of the new dam where he is welcomed by engineers he worked with in Poland. While working at the new dam, Edmund explores ways of getting to England where the exiled Polish government and its forces had been evacuated to after France capitulated. But getting to England, blockaded by the Germans, is virtually impossible. But that doesn't stop Edmund! As a last resort, he enlists in the French Foreign Legion which he knows will take him to Algeria. From there he hopes to reach England. Months later, the Allies invade Algeria and Morocco. Vichy orders the Legion to stop them. After a cease fire, the Legion joins the Allies to fight Rommel in Tunisia. Later, under a special Allied agreement, Edmund and other Poles serving in the Legion are honorably discharged and shipped to England to serve in their own forces under British command. Along the way, Edmund's convoy is attacked by German U-boats. Carrying German POWs, his ship is spared, the others are sunk. Edmund ends up in the Royal Air Force, where after a lengthy courtship he marries Marjorie Smith, a WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) stationed at the same camp. Marjorie and Edmund have an interesting life and serve together until war's end. Set during the most tumultuous time in human history, A CALL TO ARMS is a story of patriotism, relentless pursuit of an ideal, human endurance, adventure and love, for which there is always a price to pay.
For eons, the Amplitur had searched space for intelligent species, each of which was joyously welcomed to take part in the fulfillment of the Amplitur Purpose. Whether it wanted to or not. When the Amplitur and their allies stumbled upon the races called the Weave, the Purpose seemed poised for a great leap forward. But the Weave's surprising unity also gave it the ability to fight the Amplitur and their cause. And fight it did, for thousands of years. Will Dulac was a New Orleans composer who thought the tiny reef off Belize would be the perfect spot to drop anchor and finish his latest symphony in solitude. What he found instead was a group of alien visitors - a scouting party for the Weave - looking for allies among what they believed to be a uniquely warlike race: Humans. Will tried to convince the aliens that Man was fundamentally peaceful, for he understood that Human involvement would destroy the race. But all too soon, it didn't matter. The Amplitur had discovered Earth...
The colossal scale of World War II required a mobilization effort greater than anything attempted in all of the world's history. The United States had to fight a war across two oceans and three continents--and to do so, it had to build and equip a military that was all but nonexistent before the war began. Never in the nation's history did it have to create, outfit, transport, and supply huge armies, navies, and air forces on so many distant and disparate fronts. The Axis powers might have fielded better-trained soldiers, better weapons, and better tanks and aircraft, but they could not match American productivity. The United States buried its enemies in aircraft, ships, tanks, and guns; in this sense, American industry and American workers, won World War II. The scale of the effort was titanic, and the result historic. Not only did it determine the outcome of the war, but it transformed the American economy and society. Maury Klein's A Call to Arms is the definitive narrative history of this epic struggle--told by one of America's greatest historians of business and economics--and renders the transformation of America with a depth and vividness never available before.

Months have passed since the interplanetary communications net was destroyed, isolating planets across the Republic of the Sphere. Achernar is one of the few worlds still in possession of a working Hyperpulse Generator Station, capable of communications across the galaxy—and a much sought-after prize for the splintering factions of the Republic to acquire.

This is a comprehensive account of how the British Army coped with and adapted to the enormous challenges and pressures of the First World War -- the first major continental war that the army had had to fight for almost a hundred years. Following the course of the War, both on the Western Front and in other theatres, Charles Messenger tells how the British Army managed the challenges of command, training, technology and new weapons of war. He examines officer selection, medicine, discipline, the manpower crisis of 1918, the integration of women into the forces and many other topics. Based on years of original research, this will become the standard work of reference on the organization and administration of the biggest army Britain has ever put into the field.

Interwoven with his fictional characters are such historical figures as Edward Preble, Stephen Decatur, Richard Somers, Samuel Coleridge, Bashaw Yusuf Qaramanli, and Horatio Nelson, along with such real events as the naval bombardment of Tripoli, the burning of the USS Philadelphia, the USS Intrepid’s last voyage, and the assault on Derne.

This time, the actions of a few heroic naval officers, sailors, and Marines determine the country’s fate in a fast-paced plot that moves from New England on to Tripoli, Malta, Sicily, Alexandria, and Cairo. At the center of all the excitement are the magnificent super frigates of the fledgling U.S. Navy and a new generation of Cutler sons and daughters eager to follow in the footsteps of Richard Cutler and his beloved wife, Katherine. Theirs is a love story for the ages, but one whose future, readers will find, is threatened in a way that Capt. Cutler could not possibly have foreseen as he takes command of the USS Portsmouth and sets sail to join the Mediterranean Squadron and his son James, a midshipman on the USS Constitution"--Jacket.
