World War 2 History: Eyewitness Accounts: Crimes Of The German FBK & SS

by William Myron Price

Eyewitness Accounts: Crimes Of The German FBK & SS…Claim Your FREE Bonuses After the Conclusion!When Heinrich Himmler was appointed as its fourth leader in 1929, the SS consisted of less than three hundred volunteers whose job was to protect Nazi Party speakers. The SS was so short of cash that its members had to provide their own uniforms and fund their own meetings and transport. By the end of World War Two, just sixteen years later, more than one million men had served in the combat arm of the SS alone and the SS controlled almost every aspect of life in Germany and in the occupied parts of Europe and Russia. Members of the SS ran Concentration and Death Camps where millions were murdered. SS combat troops massacred prisoners of war and civilians and SS doctors conducted some of the m...

The Renaissance: A History From Beginning to End (Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Theresa of Avila, William Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Johannes Gutenberg)

by Hourly History

☆ The Renaissance ☆
During the Middle Ages, the nations of Europe forged new identities that moved them away from the lost glory of the Roman Empire into their own ethnicity. The experience of maturation was often clumsy and out of step, an evolutionary process that saw the nation's developing at their own pace as they struggled to replace the protection of Rome with their own home-grown strength. What the nations, once they were ready to be described in that manner, did have was the Roman Catholic Church, which defined itself as the spiritual protector of Christian believers. But the dutiful Christians of the Middle Ages who sought orthodoxy and for the most part obeyed the papal rules underwent a change when the Middle Ages ended. The Renaissance, or rebirth, was a period of ti...

The Wiring Diagram: The One-Page Beacon for Britain by Sir John Hoskyns, Thatcher’s Top Policy Advisor

by Ron Clouse

John Hoskyns, like everyone in the 1970s, knew something was very wrong with the British economy. Despite decades of meticulous management, redistribution, and social guarantees, the population was feeling poorer, and their lives more chaotic. The home of the industrial revolution was now home to nationalized companies and a crushing number of rules, regulations, and controls over every aspect of business activity. The land of Adam Smith had become estranged from free enterprise.No one inside or outside government seemed to know what to do about the situation. Budgets were increased, slashed, then increased again. Unions were fingered as culprits but allowed to grow more powerful.In 1974 Hoskyns decided to map the causal chains connecting the various economic ailments in Britain. The forme...

Spanish American War: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Spanish-American War
“A splendid little war “- that’s how one contemporary observer described the Spanish-American War, a war that is arguably one of the most important wars ever fought. The duration was short and the victory decisive, thus little and splendid, the latter, at least, from the victor’s point of view. The impacts of the war, however, were anything but little. In fact, the aftermath of the Spanish-American War is still affecting global affairs today. The dominant superpowers of 1898 watched as a new player on the international scene, the United States, shifted its ideology from isolationism to expansionism, and emerged as a force to reckoned with, a true superpower.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

The Benefits of Farting Explained by Jonathan Swift was published in pamphlet form in 1722. What is the nature, essence and definition of a fart? What are the consequences and disadvantages of suppressing one? Why is farting considered to be a taboo? Swift's The Benefit of Farting argues eloquently, in a forceful and a posteriori fashion, that most of the distempers thought to affect the fairer sex are due to flatulence not adequately vented. To complete the excursus into this venerable and age-old human activity, Charles James Fox's Essay upon Wind provides a detailed analysis, classificatio...

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Executing Magic in the Modern Era: Criminal Bodies and the Gallows in Popular Medicine (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Owen Davies and Francesca Matteoni

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licenseThis book explores the magical and medical history of executions from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century by looking at the afterlife potency of criminal corpses, the healing activities of the executioner, and the magic of the gallows site. The use of corpses in medicine and magic has been recorded back into antiquity. The lacerated bodies of Roman gladiators were used as a source of curative blood, for instance. In early modern Europe, a great trade opened up in ancient Egyptian mummies and the fat of executed criminals, plundered as medicinal cure-alls. However, this is the first book to consider the demand for the blood of the executed, the desire for human fat, the resort to the hanged man’s hand, and the trade in hanging ro...

Blitzed City: A Birmingham Childhood

by Muriel Bolton

‘Read all about it...read all about it...war declared’—‘Evacuate children immediately.’ Newsboys shouted, loudspeakers blared, children disappeared from the streets as Operation Pied Piper was put into place. On September 3 1939, Neville Chamberlain said, ‘This country is at war with Germany.’ A year later, when I was four, I thought it normal for ‘things’ to drop out of the sky. Bombs, sirens and shelters were part of daily life. Churchill said, ‘We will fight on the streets, we will not surrender.’ More than five thousand bombs were dropped on Birmingham streets in 77 air-raids in the blitz of WW2. The city in flames, the sky glowing red, is deeply etched into my memory.
Blitzed City recounts childhood memories of those years. Of hard times in a wartime home w...

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...
