"My Dear People is made up of three different alternating ingredients, each by a different author: a historical account of surrounding military events by Christopher McManus, Constance Crawford's commentary on her father's letters, and the letters themselves by Ned Crawford. These writings are interwoven chronologically here to make Private Ned Crawford's story comprehensible, entertaining, and moving. The letters Ned wrote to his best friend while serving as a soldier in World War I offer an intimate, quirky, and intelligent account of what it was like for a thirty-one-year-old man who abhorred war and any official interference with individual freedom to submit to a wartime draft and to perform his part in the enormous human drama that was the American Expeditionary Force."--Provided by publisher.
Toen de Eerste Wereldoorlog uitbrak, werden België en Rusland eensklaps militaire bondgenoten. De Russische propaganda noemde België het 'Land der Helden' en vond dat Rusland een voorbeeld moest nemen aan de kleine, dappere natie. In werkelijkheid was België de speelbal van de strijdende partijen. Om België in de pas te laten lopen, zond Rusland kapitein Andrej Prezjbjano naar het Belgische hoofdkwartier. Vier jaar lang was de man getuige van de gebeurtenissen aan het Belgische front en probeerde hij zijn stempel te drukken op de Belgisch-Russische relaties, ook ten tijde van de woelige Septemberrevolutie in 1917. 'Voor vorst, voor vrijheid en voor recht' vertelt het verhaal van de Belgisch-Russische oorlogsidylle aan de hand van Prezjbjano's fascinerende memoires. Het boek ontkracht enkele hardnekkige mythes over de Belgisch-Russische relaties tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog.

Mapping the future: how World War I helped shape the west.
In 1917, Stanford University leased a portion of its land to allow the creation of Camp Fremont, headquartered in present-day Menlo Park. That brought the war into the Bay Area's backyard. Soldiers received a welcome reception, and locals embraced the potential economic opportunities. However, the military presence also revealed the conflict Americans felt over the war. Residents threatened conscientious objectors within their community, while the government mollified fears of the vice that often followed troops in training. Armistice came earlier than expected, and many soldiers trained for combat they never saw. But all contributed to the growth and change that arrived with the modern era. Author Barbara Wilcox tells Camp Fremont's story of adaptability, bravery and extraordinary accomplishment during the Great War.

The celebrated pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski was the rave of Paris, London, and New York audiences in the early twentieth century, with annual concert tours across the continents. But during World War I, Paderewski set music aside and turned to politics, becoming an eloquent spokesman for the country of his birth, Poland, then occupied by the empires of Russia, Germany, and Austria. Through his fame as a musician, Paderewski gained access to the top political leadership of France, Britain, and the United States. His devoted wife and collaborator, Helena, facilitated and accompanied virtually his every move. She is one of the key sources on the historical events in which she participated or her husband told her about. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

The first account of the aftermath of the Armenian Genocide and a people's pursuit of justice for the horrific crime that has come to define them. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
The first book to chronicle the aftermath of the twentieth century's first genocide, this groundbreaking work recounts the Armenians' struggle for justice in the face of fifty years of silence and denial. - First comprehensive account: From 1915 to 1923, the Ottoman Turks drove two million Armenians from their ancestral homeland, slaughtering 1.5 million of them in the process. After an immediate groundswell of support for the "starving Armenians" led by President Woodrow Wilson, the atrocities were wiped from public consciousness. Why has Turkey never been held accountable? This, the first account of the post-Genocide era, explains how and why the event disappeared from the world's memory and reveals for the first time the full story of the events that conspired to conceal the truth. - Powerful narrative: Children of Armenia blends characterdriven narrative with historical analysis, tracking three central figures--a terrorist seeking revenge, a lawyer seeking reparations, and a lobbyist seeking recognition--to deliver a powerful true story in the tradition of Iris Chang, Peter Balakian, Samantha Power, and Philip Gourevitch. - Timely: From rwanda to Darfur to Bosnia, there has been much discussion of twentieth-century genocides, the proper u.S. response, and the tragic aftermaths. Bobelian's pioneering account of the post-Genocide generation's struggle for justice demonstrates just how critical the establishment of truth is for peaceful reconciliation.
