Description : Read Now I Survived Didn T I? by Joy Cave and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. 4124 private byrne, c,. 2nd battalion the hampshire regiment, latterly transferred to the machine gun corps; served egypt, 1915; france and belgium, 1916–1918; germany 1918–1919; honourably discharged, 1919. behind that bold statement lies a remarkable account of en infantrymans service on the western front during the great war. charlie 'ginger' byrne was a typical young volunteer soldier of 1915, a soldier's son seeking a part in what seemed a great adventure. if his experiences may be said to mirror those of thousands of others, his account stands out from so many because it is set down in the authentic voice of the soldier. unlike hundreds of thousands of his contemporaries, charlie byrne survived into old age. sound in body and mind, and blessed with almost total recall, he was persuaded to tell his tale to an interested, informed, and acute listener. now joy cave has triumphantly made the transition into print of charlie's war. it is not a tale of strategy, a recital of epic heroism, but a trench's-eye view of the great tragedy. in that, it perhaps conveys a truth that may sometimes elude the literary memoirists, the heroes and commanders, even the ever rising tide of great war historians. all have had their say, and more; charlie byne speaks for the lost thousands who, for whatever reason, never had a voice. in the often searing descriptions of going into the action with the newfoundland regiment on the somme on 1st of july 1916 (and he was one of the very few survivors of that doomed advance near beaumont-hamel); of a catastrophic gas attack in the ypres salient; of raids, wiring -and ration- parties; of work details and transport duties; of front line and reserve trenches, and life in billets behind the lines; of the endless incomprehensible moves, and the shattered landscapes of france and flanders; of the ever-present dangers and the ever present evidence of their effects- there shines through the chaos the good humour and forbearance of the soldier who fought and survived. there is much to be learned from private bryne about tolerance and the virtue of simple humanity. he adds to the cataract of words about the great war his own his own drop of impish comprehension; in doing so, his narrative forms an excellent counterpoint to the reminiscence and other writings that that form the litany of the first world war. gallant, proud humorous, and enduring, charlie byrne reminds us that wars are fought by ordinary people, but that in each of them there is always something extraordinary.

Gullace and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in this ground-breaking study of the complex relationship between war, gender, and citizenship in great britain during world war i, nicoletta gullace shows how the assault on civilian masculinity led directly to women's suffrage. through recruiting activities such as handing out white feathers to reputed 'cowards' and offering petticoats to unenlisted 'shirkers', female war enthusiasts drew national attention to the fact that manhood alone was an inadequate marker of civic responsibility. proclaiming women's exemplary service to the nation, feminist organizations tapped into a public culture that celebrated military service while denigrating those who opposed the war. drawing on the vast range of popular and official sources, gullace reveals that the war had revolutionary implications for women who wished to vote and for men who were expected to fight.

Mortimer Durand and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. when war broke out the 13th hussars were in india with the meerut cavalry brigade. the regiment landed at marseilles in december 1914 with 2nd indian cavalry division and served on the western front till june 1916 when it left for mesopotamia, arriving at basra in august 1916 joining 7th indian cavalry brigade. the main object of the book is to give an account of the regiment over the ten years of its service to 1920, but it begins with an overview of cavalry before the great war followed by a summary of the regiment s earlier history from the year it was raised, 1715, to 1910 where this volume proper begins, in india where the regiment arrived in 1904. the main event in india in the four years preceeding the great war was the delhi durbar honouring the new king emperor, george v, involving 50,000 british and indian troops. during its eighteen months on the western front the regiment was not involved in any major action, in fact the indian cavalry corps was apparently known as the iron rations - only to be used in the last extremity.though they had had some turns in the trenches, involving a few caualties, they had seen no active work as cavalry. in mesopotamia the regiment saw plenty of action, on the tigris, the recapture of kut, occupation of baghdad, operations in 1917/18. the history is based essentially on accounts of officers and men who took part and on extracts from letters and diaries.there are some good appendices: roll of officers who belonged to or served with the regiment during the war and another for the other ranks identifying casualties; a separate list of casualties which includes wounded with dates and location and pws. there is a list of honours and awards, a list of officers who sailed for france from india in november 1914 and showing details of officers who subsequently joined or who were attached to other units. finally there is an excellent index. this is a very good history

Description : Read Now Vanishing British Columbia by Michael Kluckner and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the old buildings and historic places of british columbia form a kind of "roadside memory," a tangible link with stories of settlement, change, and abandonment that reflect the great themes of bc's history. michael kluckner began painting his personal map of the province in a watercolour sketchbook. in 1999, after he put a few of the sketches on his website, a network of correspondents emerged that eventually led him to the family letters, photo albums, and memories from a disappearing era of the province. vanishing british columbia is a record of these places and the stories they tell, presenting a compelling argument for stewardship of regional history in the face of urbanization and globalization.
