Eagles and empire : the United States, Mexico, and the struggle for a continent by David A Clary ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A war that started under questionable pretexts. A president who is convinced of his country's might and right. A military and political stalemate with United States troops occupying a foreign land against a stubborn and deadly insurgency. The time is the 1840s, the enemy is Mexico, and the war is one of the least known and most important in both Mexican and United States history--a war that really began much earlier and whose consequences still echo today. Historian David A. Clary presents this epic struggle for a continent for the first time from both sides, using original Mexican and North American sources.--From publisher description
Adopted son : Washington, Lafayette, and the friendship that saved the Revolution by David A Clary ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"They were unlikely comrades-in-arms. One was a self-taught, middle-aged Virginia planter in charge of a ragtag army of revolutionaries, the other a rich, glory-seeking teenage French aristocrat. But the childless Washington and the orphaned Lafayette forged a bond as strong as any between father and son, a trust that saw them through betrayals, shifting political alliances, and the trials of war. Their friendship continued throughout their lives. Lafayette inspired widespread French support for a struggling young America and personally influenced Washington's antislavery views. Washington's enduring example as general and statesman guided Lafayette during France's own revolution years later. Using personal letters and other key documents, author Clary offers a rare glimpse of the American Revolution, including intimate portraits of such major figures as Alexander Hamilton, Benedict Arnold, and Benjamin Franklin. The result is a remarkable, little-known epic of friendship, revolution, and the birth of a nation.--From publisher description."--Source other than the Library of Congress
Rocket man : Robert H. Goddard and the birth of the space age by David A Clary ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Goddard (1882-1945) was the most famous scientist in America between the world wars, and his fame continued to grow after his death until 1960, when the biography This High Man proved too holographic, and scientists and historians began to object. He became a historical footnote, but Clary (history, Eastern New Mexico U., Roswell) wants to shed light on the man, not the legend he and his heirs made of him
