Dance of the furies : Europe and the outbreak of World War I by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Neiberg marshals letters, diaries, and memoirs of ordinary citizens across Europe to show that the onset of war was experienced as a sudden, unexpected event. As they watched a minor diplomatic crisis erupt into a continental bloodbath, they expressed shock, revulsion, and fear. But when bargains between belligerent governments began to crumble under the weight of conflict, public disillusionment soon followed. Yet it was only after the fighting acquired its own horrible momentum that national hatreds emerged under the pressure of mutually escalating threats, wartime atrocities, and intense government propaganda"--Jacquette

Making citizen-soldiers : ROTC and the ideology of American military service by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the Reserve Officers Training Corps program as a distinctively American expression of the social, cultural, and political meanings of military service." "Most modern military systems educate and train junior officers at insular academies like West Point, but that of the United States has relied extensively on the active cooperation of its civilian colleges. Michael Neiberg argues that the creation of officer education programs on civilian campuses emanates from a traditional American belief (which he traces to the colonial period) in the active participation of civilians in military affairs."--Jacket
Warfare in world history by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and Turkish and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the catastrophic effect of war, wars have also proved to be instrumental to long-term change in world history. This text is the first of its kind to survey how warfare has developed from ancient times to the present day and the role it has played in shaping the world we know. The periods discussed include: * the pre-gunpowder era * the development of gunpowder weapons and their rapid adoption in Western Europe * the French Revolution and the industrialization of warfare * the First and Second World Wars * the Cold War and the wars of liberation fought across the Third World With in-depth examples illustrating the dominant themes in the history of warfare, Warfare in World History focuses not only on the famous and heroic, but also discusses the experiences of countless millions of unknowns who have fought in wars over time
Warfare & society in Europe : 1898 to the present by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Warfare and Society in Europe, 1898 to the Present examines Warfare in Europe from the Fashoda conflict in 1898 in modern-day Sudan to the recent war in Iraq. The twentieth century was by far the world's most destructive century, with two global wars marking the first half of the century and the constant fear of nuclear annihilation haunting the second half. Throughout, this book treats warfare as a function of large political, cultural, social and economic issues." "Combining a traditional survey of military history with a survey of social issues, Michael S. Neiberg examines both how social changes have impacted the nature of war fighting and how war has shaped the basic patterns of European society."--Jacket
The Second Battle of the Marne by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The First Battle of the Marne produced the so-called "Miracle of the Marne" when French and British forces stopped the initial German drive on Paris in 1914. Hundreds of thousands of casualties later, with opposing forces still dug into trench lines that had moved very little in the intervening four years, the Germans tried again to push their way to Paris and to victory. The Second Battle of the Marne (July 15 to August 9, 1918) marks the point at which the Allied armies stopped the massive German Ludendorff Offensives and went over to offensive operations themselves. The Germans never again came as close to Paris and never again resumed the offensive. The battle was also one of the first large multi-national battles fought by the Allies since the assumption of supreme command by French general Ferdinand Foch. It also marked the only time French, American, and British forces fought together in one battle. A superb account of the bloody events of those fateful days, the book sheds new light on a critically important twentieth-century battle. Michael S. Neiberg addresses important themes in modern military history, including inter-allied cooperation, the "learning curve" of World War I armies, and the roles of command and technology on the battlefield."--Jacket
Foch : Supreme Allied Commander in the Great War by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now fighting as a more coherent whole, the Allies repulsed the German spring offensives of 1918 and returned to the attack themselves in the summer. In this role, Foch foreshadowed the similar roles played by other commanders of large coalitions, such as Dwight Eisenhower in World War II and Norman Schwarzkopf in Desert Storm."--Jacket

This book presents an introduction to one of the most important treaties ever written, the Treaty of Versailles, which formally ended World War I in 1919.

The Eastern Front 1914-1920 : from Tannenberg to the Russo-Polish war by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1914, the autocratic Russian Empire was allied to the democracies of France and Great Britain - and the small Kingdom of Serbia - through a series of treaties concluded in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and designed to counter the threat of the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary. With the outbreak of war in August, the Russian forces mobilized and moved into the Purssian heartlands and Galacia. Despite beingb outnumbered, the German commander, Paul von Hindenburg, managed to destroy one Russian army at the Battle of Tannenberg in August 1914, before defeating another at the Battle of the Masurian Lakes the following month. The Russians fared better against the Austro-Hungarian forces in Galicia, before relunctant German intervention to help their allies stabilize the situation. The year 1915 saw the German High Command switch their main effort to the Eastern Front, resulting in the decisive German victory at Gorlice-Tarnow, and the subsequent capture of Warsaw and hundred of square miles of formally Russian-controlled territory. The Russian Brusilov Offensive in the summer of 1916 and the Romanian entry into the war on the Allied side saw their fortunes revive, but the success proved to be only temporary. Brusilov's attack stalled, while Romania was effectively knocked out of the war by a joint Central Powers offensive led by Germany and Bulgaria. Increasing unrest in Russia culminated in the first revolution of 1917 and the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II. The offensives of the Provisional Government failed and a second revolution in November saw Lenin's Bolsheviks seize power. Having made peace with Germany, the Bolsheviks fought the anti-Bolshevik "White" forces in the Civil War that followed, while a number of Allied powers sent forces to help the Whites. This conflict, combined with war with the newly revived state of Poland in 1919, meant that large-scale fighting in Russia did not end until late 1920. -- from dust jacket

The military atlas of World War I by Michael S Neiberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War I might conjure up images of the trenches of the Western Front, but it was a far more complex conflict fought in a number of theatres: an air war, a war fought in the Balkans, Italy, Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, and also a naval war in the South Atlantic, South Pacific and Indian Oceans. It truly was a global conflict. The Military Atlas of World War I is a comprehensive visual guide to this complex conflict. It plots the exact course of the land, sea and air campaigns in fine detail, enabling the reader to trace the ebb and flow of the fortunes of all sides. With the aid of more than 160 full-color maps, every theatre of war is covered - from the Western Front to Sumatra, from Gallipoli to Galicia to Ghana, from Dogger Bank to Dalmatia, from Romania to Rhodesia, from the Falklands to Togo to Sinai.All the maps have been specially commissioned from an expert cartographer. Each map has been designed to highlight a particular aspect of the war, thus they vary in shape and size - from isometric to semi-circular and full-page to double-spread - and in outlook, with some maps giving a global perspective while others depict the exact movement of armed forces on the land, sea and air. Battles such as Jutland, the Somme, Cambrai and the Gallipoli campaign are shown in great detail. All maps are accompanied by a key, which helps the reader to understand the action and events
