    Book III. Pierre marries Ellen; Anatole unsuccessfully courts Marya. Andrey attends the war council on the eve of Austerlitz and wishes to be a hero. He is wounded during the battle. Compared to the limitless sky, which symbolizes death, Napoleon seems to Andrey petty and insignificant. Book IV. Civil War Book List By THE NEW YORK TIMES. Far more books have been written about the Civil War than about any other event in American history, and Lincoln’s stack of books towers over that of any other American figure. Any recommended reading list therefore has to be highly selective and at least somewhat arbitrary.

    This was the best book Churchill wrote, an exuberant memoir of colonial wars as seen by a shameless adventurer and glory-seeker, such as every conflict produces its share of. Teaching a People’s History of Abolition and the Civil War is a collection of 10 classroom-tested lessons on one of the most transformative periods in U.S. history. These lessons encourage students to take a critical look at the popular narrative that centers Abraham Lincoln as the Great Emancipator and ignores the resistance of abolitionists and enslaved people.

    For those who lived through the Second World War, this exhibit may help them recall their experiences. For those who did not, it is hoped they will gain a deeper understanding of the sacrifice and commitment of those Americans who, after almost four years, were "A People at War.". The War on Stupid People. American society increasingly mistakes intelligence for human worth. David H. Freedman. Smart people should feel entitled to make the most of their gift. But they.

There was a time when all I knew of Vietnam war books was Tim O’Brien’s, The Things They Carried, a book that prompted the laconic entry in my book journal, “This book destroyed me.” One of the things I loved so much—and that broke my heart so cleanly—about The Things They Carried was that it reminded me of another beloved war book, Slaughterhouse-Five, in that both books are Author: Tracy Shapley.

This book may be “about” war, but it is, like most of these books, mostly about people. Knight’s Cross: A Life of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel by David Fraser.

It’s going to feel weird reading a book about a German general in WWII but for Rommel we must make an exception.
