Eagle and sword : the Federalists and the creation of the military establishment in America, 1783-1802 by Richard H Kohn( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1996 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the engrossing and little-known story of a powerful circle of men- the wing of the Federalist party led by Alexander Hamilton- who won a bitter fight for a national army, but divided the country and destroyed their own party in the process. Here is history that raises questions about the power and influence of militarism in American politics: Did Alexander Hamilton intentionally provoke the Whiskey Rebellion to prove the need for a federal army? Were the Federalists prepared to use military force to prevent Thomas Jefferson from becoming President in 1800? Were these men militarists? Were they after a national army in order to maintain their own power? Unfolding the critical events of America's first two decades of Independence- the incredible Newburgh Conspiracy of 1783, the first Constitutional debates over "national security," Shay's Rebellion, the Indian War campaigns of "Mad Anthony" Wayne, the Quasi-War with the French- this timely book chronicles the origins of American militarism, and the serious threat it posed to the democratic ideals of the young American nation. -- from Book Jacket

Reluctant accomplice : a Wehrmacht soldier's letters from the Eastern Front by Konrad Jarausch( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reluctant Accomplice is a volume of the wartime letters of Dr. Konrad Jarausch, a German high-school teacher of religion and history who served in a reserve battalion of Hitler's army in Poland and Russia, where he died of typhoid in 1942. He wrote most of these letters to his wife, Elisabeth. His son, acclaimed German historian Konrad H. Jarausch, brings them together here to tell the gripping story of a patriotic soldier of the Third Reich who, through witnessing its atrocities in the East, begins to doubt the war's moral legitimacy. These letters grow increasingly critical, and their vivid descriptions of the mass deaths of Russian POWs are chilling. They reveal the inner conflicts of ordinary Germans who became reluctant accomplices in Hitler's merciless war of annihilation, yet sometimes managed to discover a shared humanity with its suffering victims, a bond that could transcend race, nationalism, and the enmity of war. Reluctant Accomplice is also the powerful story of the son, who for decades refused to come to grips with these letters because he abhorred his father's nationalist politics. Only now, late in his life, is he able to cope with their contents-and he is by no means alone. This book provides rare insight into the so-called children of the war, an entire generation of postwar Germans who grew up resenting their past, but who today must finally face the painful legacy of their parents' complicity in National Socialism
Air interdiction in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam : an interview with Earle E. Partridge, Jacob E. Smart, and John W. Vogt, Jr. by Earle E Partridge( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three distinguished USAF Generals offer their wisdom on Aerial Interdiction. In the long evolution of American air power in the twentieth century the professional experiences and judgments of these senior air leaders are both representative and instructive. Over one hundred years of military service are contained in this oral history interview, almost all of it concerned with the application of a new kind of military force-air power-to the oldest of military questions: how to defeat enemy armies. In discussing their experiences in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, these men focus on those air campaigns which have come to be considered classics of air interdiction: in World War II, Operation Strangle in Italy, March-May 1944, and operations in support of the Normandy Invasion, April-June 1944; in the Korean War, all campaigns, especially Operation Strangle, May-October 1951; in the Vietnam War, the air interdiction part of the Rolling Thunder air campaign, March 1965-November 1968, the air campaign in Southern Laos, 1965-1972, and especially the air interdiction portions of Linebacker I and II, May-October and December 1972. In addition, the discussion turns in the latter stages to the impact of electronics-laser guided weapons, electronic suppression devices, drone air planes, and immediate air intelligence-on air interdiction operations. Generals Partridge, Smart, and Vogt offer definitions, clarifications, examples, generalizations, and advice. Their purpose, and that of the Office of Air Force History, is to further the dialogue among military professionals so that the past can help us to meet the challenges of the future

The SAC mentality : the origins of organizational culture in Strategic Air Command, 1946-1962 by Melvin G Deaile( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dissertation explores the origins of Strategic Air Command's organizational culture. Organizational culture--the assumptions, values, and rituals of an organization-- has an ideological and a material component. Formed in 1946, SAC inherited part of its organizational culture from the assumptions of Air Force leaders who believed that strategic air power should be organized under one independent commander. This provided the initial values and organizational doctrine for the command. The shared historical experiences of those who fought in World War II provided the formulation for the tactics and cultural rituals that became part of SAC culture. Constructing a 'force-in-being' meant preparing SAC to execute its war plan on a moment's notice. Curtis LeMay put SAC on alert; war was not months or weeks but hours away. As SAC organized, trained, and, in the minds of its leaders and members fought the Cold War, other organizational routines, rituals, and symbols evolved. Many of SAC's first cultural forms--standardized procedures, lead crews, and the survival school--grew out of the leaders' shared experiences. Other cultural elements-- security, competition, and architectural designs--developed out of the command's involvement in the Cold War. Security and competition oriented people towards an enemy and to vigilance. Although SAC tried to build a family friendly command, its atmosphere of competition ran counter to the cooperation needed at home to maintain a healthy family life. In 1957, the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik I changed the circumstances of the Cold War and added new elements to SAC culture. Alert--the ability to launch bombers and ICBMs within fifteen minutes--became a cultural routine that lasted in SAC until the Cold War ended. The responsiveness required of the alert force meant mistakes, especially with nuclear weapons, were not tolerated. SAC culture dictated perfection as the standard. Missiles, however, stood in stark contrast to the values and assumptions of the organization. These new weapons were 'pilotless.' Therefore, SAC took measures to make sure this new SAC subculture espoused the same values and beliefs as the larger organization. SAC's culture emphasized standardization, perfection, and the physical presentation of power because this was the type of war the organization fought."--Abstract from p. iii
