Shipping weight 2 pounds: Additional fee may be requested on international order. 2004 LTC Richard G. Trefry Award, Army Historical Foundation. Caroline Cox (1954-2014) was professor of history at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. From the book cover: Armies are the product of the societies that create them. In 1775, when patriot leaders formed the Continental army, they were informed by their own experiences and their knowledge of the British army. Thus, the Continental Congress created a corps of officers who were gentlemen and a body of soldiers who were not. Caroline Cox shows that, following this decision, a great gap existed in the conditions of service between soldiers and officers of the Continental army. Her study of daily military life, punishment and military justice, medical care and burial rituals illuminates the social world of the Continental army and shows how every aspect of life reinforced the distinctions of rank. At at time when existing social arrangements were increasingly challenged by war and political rhetoric that embraced the equal rights of men, Cox shows that change crept slowly into American military life.

For the crusaders the prize was the liberation and settlement of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, which for hundreds of years had shimmered in the minds of European Christians as the most sacred place on earth. For the Muslims, on the other hand, the crusaders were not only the infidels but coarse, violent invaders, undoubtedly courageous and viriel, but nonetheless lacking the refinements of civilization. Discover the historical and religious background to the crusades, the dramtic battles and political intrigues, everyday live in Outremer (Syria and Palestine), the heroes and their rivalries, such as that between the English king Richard the Lionheart and the Muslim leader Saladin, great feats of courage and terrible acts of treachery and savagery.

From the book cover: In the waning days of 1862, Union and Confederate troops set up camp in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Christmas had just passed, and for many of these young soldiers the season was a melancholy reminder of the families and loved ones they had left behind. Bands from both camps played patriotic songs in an attempt to raise spirits, a musical duel that presaged the bloody battle to come. then, something extraordinary occurred: One of the bands began playing Home Sweet Home. Both bands picked it up, and soon thousands of Northern and Southern soldiers had joined together in song. God Rest Ye Merry, Soldiers tells this yuletide tale of a time when the optimism of the early Civil War had given way to the bitter realities of bloodshed. Told through soldiers' letters and period songs, this is the hopeful story of human compassion in the midst of unspeakable violence. Free shipping on domestic orders $25 and over!

Very Good Condition: Pages clean, unmarked. Tight binding. Black marker line on bottom outer page edges. Cover shows minor shelf storage wear. Dustjacket shows very minor wear and outer soil. Hardcover book with dustjacket copy of God Rest Ye Merry, Soldiers: A True Civil War Christmas Story by James McIvor. New York: Viking (Penguin Group), 2005. 162 pages. 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 inches, 19 cm. From the dustjacket: By the second Christmas of the Civil War in 1862, the childlike optimism the soldiers carried with them into conflict had failed. These were after all young boys who had just spent Christmas away from home, sleeping in frozen puddles and scraping together bacon fat and lardtack for their Christmas feasts. Many spent Christmas Day writing letters to their families either lamenting their sorry conditions or saying their final farewells in anticipation of the battle to come. The enemy had begun to seem, more than North or south, the war itself. Then just after Christmas in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, a small miracle occurred. On the eve of the bloody Battle of Stone River, the Union and Confederate armies setup camp within shouting distance of one another. To raise their spirits, they began a combative volley of patriotic tunes: Yankee Doodle drown out by Dixie. Then a union band began to play Home Sweet Home. A Confederate band chimed in, and soon every regimental band and every soldier, Rebel and Yankee alike, swelled the chorus. The bittersweet moment is the centerpiece of McIvor's tale, a portrait in miniature of our nation, weary of war. Filled with soldiers' letters marked by humor, yearning, and courage as well as Christmas poems and songs from the period, God Rest Ye Merry Soldiers is a testament to the soldiers' legacy: the hope that even the deepest divisions of a nation torn apart by war may someday be healed.

Hertfordshire: Wordsworth Editions Ltd., 1999. xii, 270 pages. 5-3/8 x 8-3/8 inches, 22 cm. From the book cover: The summary execution by firing squad of confused and shell-shocked British soldiers in the First World War still arouses heated passions over eighty years later. Calls for posthumous pardons are still made in Parliament on behalf of these men who were tried by flawed courts martial and shot within hours of the verdict. William Moore's compassionate account of the dreadful proceedings that caused 346 men to be executed by their comrades was the first book to raise this uncomfortable subject. Brilliantly researched against the wishes of the War Office, it traces the origins of military capital punishment, placing in context the regulations which led brave men, both regular soldiers and conscripts, to their lonely deaths at dawn.
