The Minute Men; a compact history of the defenders of the American Colonies, 1645-1775 by John R Galvin( Book )

5 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Om farmerne/nybyggernes forsvar af de amerikanske kolonier incl. de første slag mellem de britiske regulære soldater og den amerikanske milits (Minute Men) i den Nordamerikanske Uafhængighedskrig i april 1775 ved Lexington og Concord. "The patriots of April 19, 1775, have become part of an American Myth - a legend that a bunch of heroes in homespun spontaneously stood up to a superior force of highly trained British soldiers, with almost miraculous succes. In reality Paul Revere and the "embattled framers" of history were part of a vast colonial army with long traditions of organization and training. It is the first book to develop thoroughly the thesis that the minute man idea was a century and a half old at the start of the Revolution, and to trace its growth from the first colonists' preparations for defense against Indian attacks to the last battle of the colonial militia."
The minute men : the first fight : myths & realities of the American revolution by John R Galvin( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of the farmer and shopkeeper pulling rifles off pegs on the wall to fight the British has been the typical image of the American minuteman. The fact that he may have had military training and drilled--and that April 19, 1775 was not his first battle--usually goes unmentioned. Winner of the American Revolution Round Table Award, The Minute Men will be of keen interest to those curious about the true history of some of America's first soldiers.--Publisher description

Psychologic aspects of terrorism by John R Galvin( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing incidences of terrorist exploitation of sensitive political interfaces are occurring. Military and paramilitary commanders are likely to become involved in the resolution of incidents precipitated by such organizations. Personnel known to staff such organizations are examined in terms of background, educational and social factors. Special attention to the behavioral background reveals stunted development of parental identification and a lack of fulfillment of basic personality needs. Counterforce commanders should be aware that observed behavior such as championing an oppressed minority masks internal emotional dissonance and is an outlet for subconscious rage. Death threats and authoritarian tactics will tend to re-enforce the underlying process. Opportunities to ventilate and negotiations with (real or illusory) escape scenarios will provide optimal interventions to preserve hostages and to amass overwhelming counterforce
