Fifteen decisive battles of the world by Edward Shepherd Creasy( Book )

7 editions published between 1943 and 1960 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undoubtedly the most famous work of military history of the nineteenth century, Edward S. Creasy's Fifteen decisive battles of the world has been read and re-read for close to 150 years. It is not only the authoritative account of each battle that makes Creasy's work such a classic--it is his command of narrative, his interest in human struggle, his profound deductions as to effects of the battles, and his striving after truth. Furthermore, his selections seem as wise and well-considered today as when Fifteen decisive battles first appeared in 1851: Nobody since has made better ones, nor given us better accounts. Apart from the scholarship and literary skill of Creasy's book, there is another reason it has endured: Creasy was essentially fair-minded. He had been a judge, and when he became England's great military critic and historian, he maintained a thoroughly judicial attitude. He was not a British partisan, nor French, nor German--he was a cosmopolitan observer of great events. Out of 2300 years, Creasy only found fifteen battles which he called decisive in the highest sense. He chose them not for the number of killed and wounded, nor for their status in myth and lore, but because they fundamentally changed the course of world history. In doing so, he made his book a miniature military history of the western world, a classic that will repay continued study for generations to come, as it has for generations

Consisting of microfilm and closed originals, the John Lind Mexican Mission Papers recount former Minnesota congressman (1883-1897 and 1903-1905) and governor (1899-1901) John Lind's diplomatic mission to Mexico in 1913-1914 during the Mexican Revolution as the personal representative of President Woodrow Wilson, and reflect his continued involvement and interest in Mexican affairs subsequent to that time. They comprise all of his papers for the years 1913-1916, the majority of which concern Mexico, plus those items for the period 1917-1931 that relate to Mexico. Included are diplomatic dispatches, correspondence, reports from others involved in Mexican affairs, printed materials, and copies of official documents. The collection also includes some 1,100 research note cards. The microfilm was made from documents in the John and Norman Lind Papers manuscript collection.
