  • The Art of War

    Sun Tzu

    Militaire geschiedenis An Apple Books Classic edition. It’s believed that Sun Tzu wrote this Chinese military primer during the 5th century BC-hundreds of years before the Bible. The book’s 13 chapters explore principles that statesmen around the globe have employed for centuries to defeat their enemies at war. Sun Tzu starts by mapping out the five fundamental factors that lead to war. He then covers a wide range of topics, from avoiding conflict altogether to strategically positioning soldiers, pulling off tactical maneuvers, and putting spies to use. Despite the technological advances made since The Art of War was published, Sun Tzu is still considered one of history’s foremost military strategists, and his methods still ring true. While he wrote the book as a manual for those who would literally wield swords, it has reached a much broader audience in this day and age. Warriors of all kinds-like corporate leaders or athletes-seek out Sun Tzu’s wisdom in their quest for success.
  • World War 2 History: True Stories of the Wehrmacht War Crimes and Atrocities

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Militaire geschiedenis The Second World War was, no doubt, one of the worst experiences mankind has ever faced. From torture to rape to murder, crimes against innocents were innumerous – Adolf Hitler, a diminutive man with the oratorical skills of a genius took advantage of a sensitive situation in the aftermath of Germany's defeat in the First World War and amassed enough power to bring the entire European continent to its knees. In the forefront of Hitler's troops were the Wehrmacht, which had some of the most elite, most powerful and most brutal soldiers in the world. What's sad is that at the end of the Second World War, when the Nuremberg Trials took place and most of the WW2 criminals were tried and then punished, the Wehrmacht was declared as not a criminal organization. This was because of a legal technicality and loophole that left them as simply part of the German Armed Forces. Just because they were ruled as 'not a criminal organization', it doesn't mean that they weren't criminals – there ar

  • World War 2: Stories of the Schutzstaffel: True Accounts of Hitler’s Personal Bodyguards

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis The instigator and the mastermind behind the Holocaust; Adolf Hitler of Germany, was at the forefront of the Second World War and ruined millions of lives, throwing the entire European continent into chaos. Not only was he hated by the whole world, even some of his own military commanders didn’t like him. Most leaders around the world rely on one, maybe two bodyguards to keep them safe. Even the President of the United States today has only one or two teams of security personnel; while there may be many men and women who take turns to protect their leader, the numbers are not as big as you would expect it to be. We will look at the origins of a number of bodies, such as the ‘Sturmabteilung’ or the SA, the Schutzstaffel (the SS) and the many other sub-sections of the SS such as the FBK, the LSSAH, etc., all of which were tasked with protecting Hitler. From the background, we will move on to individual accounts of men who served on these teams – they were Hitler’s persona

  • VietNam

    Givan Hieralal & Aniss Idahmanen

    Militaire geschiedenis Het profielwerkstuk is een verplicht onderdeel voor het Havo examen (2013-2014).  Wij (Givan Hieralal en Aniss Idahmanen ) hebben uiteindelijk samen gekozen voor  de Vietnamoorlog als onderwerp: De Vietnamoorlog Over de Vietnamoorlog is ontzettend veel geschreven en er is heel veel (schokkend) beeldmateriaal van aanwezig.  Het interessante van dit onderwerp is het vele materiaal (zowel filmbeelden als foto’s) en de vele discussies (blogs e.d.) op het internet. Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis was een oorlog (met vaak schokkende beelden) direct in de huiskamers te volgen.  Mede door alle aandacht kwam er kwam er wereldwijd een  maatschappelijke discussie tot stand, wat enorm veel invloed op de oorlog heeft gehad en eigenlijk nog steeds heeft.  Er waren geen geheimen meer. Naast het profielwerkstuk hebben we besloten gebruik te maken van alle (nieuwe) media en hebben daarom als “bonus” een Electronische versie (E-book) gemaakt welke als snelle naslag
  • World War 2 History: Stories of the Failed Assassination Attempts on Adolf Hitler’s Life

    William Myron Price

    Geschiedenis The most celebrated attempt at Führer’s life is believed to be the one carried out by Clause von Stauffenberg in Hitler’s Wolf’s lair headquarters. The explosion killed four, but Hitler survived. The attempted conspiracy was documented in a feature film ‘The Valkyrie’ starring Tom Cruise as Clause von Stauffenberg. What is interesting to note is that the motivation of almost all the assassins and conspirators greatly varied. While some wanted to take over his position as the leader of Germany, there were some who wanted to put an end to the Second World War – they didn’t want to be part of the losing side a second time after World War I, especially since Germany was beginning to flounder against the Allied Powers. The question then arises – how did one man survive against the attempts of so many? Hitler was the prime target of his own officials and deputies. To add to the list were the millions around the world who had been deeply scandalized by his actions and decisi

  • Holocaust Survivor Accounts: True Stories of Prisoners Surviving the Holocaust: Holocaust Survivor Stories and Heroes of Auschwitz

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis The Holocaust, (called Ha-Shoah in Hebrew) refers to the state sponsored murder and persecution of about six million Jews by the German Nazi regime and its collaborators, leading into and during the Second World War. The word itself means, "Sacrifice by fire". The Holocaust has no other comparison in the annals of human history because of the sheer extent of the terror it spread. In 1933 the population of Jews in Europe was about nine million. After Adolf Hitler came to power on a campaign of aggressive foreign policy, focus on domestic unification and the idea of racial superiority - nearly two thirds of the Jewish people in the continent had perished. The 'Final Solution' to the 'Jewish Problem' was, of course, murder. Although Jews, who were seen by Hitler and the Nazi regime as primarily responsible for Germany's capitulation in the First World War, in addition to being inferior as a race, were the primary targets, several other demographics also received attention during the holo

  • Holocaust Survivor Accounts: Incredible True Holocaust Survivor Stories From World War 2: Accounts Of Holocaust History

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis If there is one thing that can be said about humanity, it is that we are true survivors. From wars to natural disasters, man has managed to bring himself back from the brink of destruction. We have thrived over the millennia we have inhabited this earth; from the caveman to the modern civilization we live in today, we have seen and braved storms of all kinds – both natural and man made. Of these many disasters we have faced head on, none can be more telling than the two World Wars. As the names suggest, the whole world felt the impact of these wars, shook from the intangible tremors that spread to the entire globe. The Second World War in particular, was something of a power play, where millions lost their lives because one group believed in the power of their hegemony over all the rest. The Holocaust could, perhaps, be described as the most disastrous and devastating man-made storm the world has ever seen. Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the entire Second World War was nothing but state

  • Wild Beasts and Their Ways, Reminiscences of Europe, Asia, Africa and America — Volume 1

    Samuel White Baker

    Militaire geschiedenis Forty years ago our troops were armed with a smooth-bore musket, and a small force known as the "Rifle Brigade" was the exception to this rule. The military rifle carried a spherical bullet, and, like all others of the period, it necessitated the use of a mallet to strike the ball, which, being a size larger than the bore, required the blow to force it into the rifling of the barrel in order to catch the grooves.
  • Strike Force

  • World War 2 History: Eyewitness Accounts: Crimes Of The German FBK & SS

    William Myron Price

    Geschiedenis When Heinrich Himmler was appointed as its fourth leader in 1929, the SS consisted of less than three hundred volunteers whose job was to protect Nazi Party speakers. The SS was so short of cash that its members had to provide their own uniforms and fund their own meetings and transport. By the end of World War Two, just sixteen years later, more than one million men had served in the combat arm of the SS alone and the SS controlled almost every aspect of life in Germany and in the occupied parts of Europe and Russia. Members of the SS ran Concentration and Death Camps where millions were murdered. SS combat troops massacred prisoners of war and civilians and SS doctors conducted some of the most horrifying medical experiments the world has ever seen. How could this have happened? How could a tiny, voluntary group in one of the most civilized European countries grow to become one of the most feared, hated and reviled state terror organizations in the world? This book tells the story o
  • Holocaust Rescuers: True Holocaust Survivor Stories Of The Liberators Of Auschwitz: Accounts Of The Holocaust Rescuers

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis Every so often, an event happens that yanks the reigns of the ever-churning machinery of time and stops the world in its tracks. The repercussions of such an event may send shock waves that can be felt in every nook and corner of our sphere. These events and happenings will vary in the actual magnitude, but their lasting effect can be immeasurable in the manner they influence humanity till posterity. Once such event for instance, was the Holocaust. During the course of which a staggering 11 million unarmed and helpless men, women and children were slaughtered mercilessly by the Nazis and their collaborators. And the most shocking and brutal fact was that this number included more than 6 million Jews. Suffice to say that the actions of the Nazis almost pushed the Jewish race to certain obliteration. The fundamental logic behind this inhuman eruption of atrocities was the unfounded and groundless notion of Aryan Supremacy. The Nazis believed that the Aryan race was the purest and the mo

  • World War II Submarines: Stunning World War 2 Submarine Stories And Warfare From The Depths Of The Ocean

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Militaire geschiedenis War is perhaps that one occurrence that has held captive the attention of man for eons after it is over. This is quite natural as well, for the repercussions of war are such that the aftershocks are felt long after the last bomb was dropped and the last cannon boomed. We as human beings find it irresistible to turn back the pages of history and go over and dissect certain incidents and happenings that we believe warrants repeated scrutiny. This is not so much because of our tendency to learn from our mistakes but more from our need to revisit what had transpired in the past. One such frequently revisited topic is the Second World War and the unending stories that come with it. The descriptions of life during those times truly fascinate us and fill us with awe. During the times of the Second World War, no other vessel of craft would have played a bigger or more significant role than the submarines in terms of the impact they had on the outcome of the battles. These marvels of engineeri

  • 1914

    John Denton Pinkstone French

    Militaire geschiedenis This is a history book. Year 1914 (MCMXIV) was a common year starting on Thursday in the Gregorian calendar and a common year starting on Wednesday in the Julian calendar. This year saw the beginning of what became known as World War I. For years past I had regarded a general war in Europe as an eventual certainty.

  • World War 2 Women: Incredible Stories And Accounts Of World War 2 Women Spies, Heroes And Informers

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis Clichéd though it may be, a human being’s true strength of character is reflected in the most difficult of times. The world had to sit up and take note of just how strong a woman could be when the two world wars hit. Even taking the side of the traditionalists, one could deny that women were as important to the war as men were. This so called weaker sex had to fight their own battles within their homes – their husbands, fathers and brothers went to face the enemy on the front lines while they fought tooth and nail to keep the family running. And still more women went to the actual battlefront itself! Women had a unique advantage over the men; they could blend into the background seamlessly, precisely because of the prevalent sexist attitudes of the times. Their bravery, their self-sacrifice and their daring cannot be forgotten, for without them, the War could have been lost and the world we live in today could be a very different place. This book chronicles the stories of four su

  • World War 2 Women: True Stories Of World War 2 Women In Action: The Women Heroes And Spies Of World War 2

    Cyrus J. Zachary

    Geschiedenis From the dawn of time, women have been perceived as the caretakers, as nurturers and as mothers. They are seen as delicate creatures, to be protected and taken care of. Many a time, this argument has served more than one chauvinist who sought to keep the woman bound to his wishes, unable to do anything beyond the quintessential cooking and cleaning and rearing of the children. Yet, given the chance, women have proven themselves time and time again, going above and beyond the call of duty. For all that they are perceived to be the physically weaker of the two accepted sexes, it is the female who carries a full human being within her and it is the female who births that baby and creates life. It was women like these who helped win some of the nastiest wars mankind has ever faced. Both the world wars left an indelible mark on the earth; the face of humanity was forever altered, both during and in the aftermath. Millions lost their lives, and rebuilding was an effort that took decades. Th

  • Journey of an ANZAC

    Thomas Drane

    Militaire geschiedenis Walk in the footsteps of an ANZAC. Sapper Thomas Edward Drane (Service No.56) was one of the first men to enlist at the beginning of WW1. While enlisted with the 1st Field Company Engineers (1FCE) he compiled a personal diary of his wartime experiences. His diary describes the anticipation and adventure in the days of training leading up to battle. He writes of the time spent in Sydney with new friends and the cheering crowds when departing. And the times he enjoyed with his mates, exploring Egypt’s natural wonders and culture when relieved from the rigours of wartime training. Then there is the harsh reality of the Gallipoli landing which has been so firmly entrenched in Australia’s history. To read in his own words the living hell of those first moments and ensuing days from his perspective as a member of the 1st Field Company Engineers of NSW, is to gain an insight into what many men had endured for ‘honour and love of the country that reared them’.

  • Thunder Run

    Anthony Carlson, Donald P. Wright & Michael Doidge

    Militaire geschiedenis Baghdad, 2003.  In the two weeks since the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom, U.S. Military forces had pushed 700 kilometers from the Kuwait border to the outskirts of Baghdad.  Yet the question remained, "In a city of six million with resistance fighters well-entrenched, how to topple the regime?"  This case study interprets the events of the "Thunder Run," the operation designed to overthrow Saddam Hussein's regime, through the doctrine of "Mission Command."  Using raw footage from the battle and extensive interviews with Lieutenant General David Perkins, the study focuses on the commander's perspective. Perkins recalls his time as a colonel commanding  2d Brigade, and his decision to use M1A1 tanks and Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles to enter Baghdad and bring the war to a quick end.

  • Module 2 of The West Point History of the Civil War

    Joseph T. Glatthaar, Clifford J Rogers, Ty Seidule & Samuel Watson

    Militaire geschiedenis Joseph T. Glatthaar’s first chapter on the eastern theater looks at the changing nature of the Civil War’s first year of combat. Both sides struggled to find the right combinations of material support and effective command. While the Union held an early advantage due to its industrial base and the organizational skill of George McClellan, that advantage dissipated in the Shenandoah Valley and along the James River. The extraordinary leadership of Robert E. Lee and his subordinates, particularly Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, turned the war’s momentum. Glatthaar also examines the growth of “hard war” policies, and the transformation of Union war aims. These movements culminated at the Battle of Antietam, after which Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation. This chapter includes: - Detailed animations of Jackson’s famous Valley campaign and the Battle of Antietam; - Animated chapter timeline, showing the development of military and political events across time and s

  • Kumpulana

    Ria Koster

    Militaire geschiedenis This book is a collection of memories of people who lived in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) when the Japanese invaded their country. Whether interned as POWs or as civilians, most spent several years (from 1942 to 1945) in Japanese concentration camps located in Indonesia, Burma (now Myanmar) or in Japan itself, and in many cases their ordeal included forced labour and torture, not to mention starvation and the resulting malnutrition and disease. The original collection of these stories was first published in the limited edition book Kumpulana (2005) to coincide with the 60th anniversary of VJ-Day. This compilation is certainly of importance in and of itself to researchers of the history of the war in the Pacific, but the greatest personal significance has naturally been more for the survivors themselves, so that they may know that their stories will live on. It is naturally the various authors' hope that their readers will acquire a broader view of what so many, many people li
  • Indigenous Australians at War

    Shrine of Remembrance

    Militaire geschiedenis Indigenous men and women have combined modern military and uniquely indigenous skills in the service of their country. The stories presented in this exhibition are drawn from all over Australia while a larger history emerges in which all Australians share. The dignity and pride of Aboriginal Australians is seen in these images as they have taken their place protecting their country in wartime.  From the arrival of the earliest non-indigenous settlers in Australia the long history of conflict between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, combined with the lack of equal rights, throws into perspective Aboriginal service and sacrifice in war and peacekeeping. The readiness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to enlist beside white Australians to fight abroad for their country and for the British Empire is all the more noteworthy when viewed against their lack of citizenship and the erratic administration of Defence policies that discouraged their enlistment.

  • My Life On The Plains

    Militaire geschiedenis My Life on the Plains is an autobiographical first-hand account of the Indian Wars of 1867-1869, detailing the winter campaign of 1868 in which Custer led the 7th US cavalry against the Cheyenne indians. The book is a historical document of the perspectives and attitudes of it's age and author as well as an account of army life during the expeditions of the Indian Wars. Expect a fair amount of masculine bravado, historical fact-bending and quite a few stomach-turning descriptions of violence from both the indians and the cavalry. George Armstrong Custer (1839 – 1876), one of the most mythologized figures in American history, was an United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the American Civil War and the Indian Wars. He eventually met his fate in the battle of Little Big Horn in one of the most notable defeats of American armed forces.

    Militaire geschiedenis Detta är inte en bok om fyra krig. Detta är en bok om personliga upplevelser av fyra krig, gjorda under reportageresor för Expressen och Dagens Nyheter mellan 1991 och 2005. Den innehåller delar av artiklar som publicerats i dessa tidningar samt texter som det aldrig fanns plats att trycka – eller som helt enkelt var för personliga. De läsare som fanns framför mig när jag skrev den var mina barn, som nu blivit så stora att de på olika vis börjat ställa frågor – inte minst kritiska – varför jag gjort dessa resor. Och min förhoppning är att de här skall finna, om inte ett svar, så i alla fall något av en förståelse. Att läsa dem själv är ett möte med ett yngre och naivare jag.

  • My War at Sea 1914–1916: A Captain's Life with the Royal Navy During the First World War

    Heathcoat Grant

    Militaire geschiedenis This book is based on the wartime recollections of Heathcoat S. Grant, the captain of the HMS Canopus between 1914–1916. It is published in conjunction with the War Letters 1914–1918 series. For the first two years of the war HMS Canopus had as eventful a time as any ship in the Royal Navy, being involved at Coronel, the Battle of the Falklands and the attempt to force the Dardanelles. As captain of the ship, Grant’s account, based on his service reports and diary, is a valuable source for those wanting to know more about such key naval events of the First World War. It has the added advantage of being highly readable. The report of his conversations with Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock sheds a valuable light on events at Coronel, while his description of the measures taken on land to defend the Falkland Islands details an important aspect of the battle often overlooked in accounts which focus primarily on the battle at sea. The Canopus also played a critical role at the Da

Le plus souvent, il ne s’agit d’une liste plus ou moins longue de publications et seuls quelques rares auteurs s’aventurent sur la voie d’une bibliographie critique. C’est en effet un sujet complexe car pour porter un jugement de valeur un contact intime avec la matière qui compose un ouvrage est indispensable. Il s’agit bien in fine de mettre en exergue tant ses qualités que ses défauts en forgeant cette fois un alliage mêlant bibliographie & bibliophilie ou l’alliance de technicité et passion du livre. Le corpus d’ouvrage ainsi proposé est constitué de 850 références issues de mes collections. Prétendre à l’exhaustivité relèverait bien évidemment de l’illusoire.

  • The Major Operations of the Navies in the War of American Independence

    Alfred Thayer Mahan

    Militaire geschiedenis Wars, like conflagrations, tend to spread; more than ever perhaps in these days of close international entanglements and rapid communications. Hence the anxiety aroused and the care exercised by the governments of Europe, the most closely associated and the most sensitive on the earth, to forestall the kindling of even the slightest flame in regions where all alike are interested, though with diverse objects; regions such as the Balkan group of States in their exasperating relations with the Turkish empire, under which the Balkan peoples see constantly the bitter oppression of men of their own blood and religious faith by the tyranny of a government which can neither assimilate nor protect.

M. on the 3rd of February, a stormy winter's morning, with three inches of snow on the ground, and driving gusts of melting flakes lashing our faces. In utter silence the long lines of horses and cloaked riders filed out through the dimly-lit gateway and into the empty streets, and we were off at last on this long, strange journey to distant Africa.

Finally, his cover was blown. Martin was taken from Sinn Fein headquarters in Belfast to an IRA safehouse for interrogation, torture and almost certain execution. Though guarded by three IRA armed terrorists, in a desperate bid for freedom, he dived from a third floor window to escape...The book was also on the London Sunday Times best seller list.

    Terry Aspinall

    Militaire geschiedenis Upon explaining to a fellow Royal Marine that my latest project was to try and put together an article about the Royal Marines history. His first response was to tell me that it's been done many many many times before. His reply caught me off guard and made me even more determined to carry on with my project. I went on to explain that I believe I have something a little different. I then went on to explain that I was trying to record every single day of our 354 year history. I had this idea that as the Royal Marines have served in all parts of the world. Especially during the World Wars. While some Royal Marines were serving in Europe, others were serving in the Far East. I wanted to bring it all together on an enlarged 'Historical Time Line'. Although I do realise that this is a mammoth task, and will probably take several years to complete. If in fact it can be completed. Here is the first Edition. I hope to publish up dated editions whenever possible, or at least on a yearly basis.
