The Anschluss of the Sudeten Regions and the Subjugation of Czechia

by Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof

Every day recently pundits in the media compare Putin’s “invasion of Ukraine” to Hitler’s “invasion of Czechoslovakia.” They do so obviously on the assumption that people today well know what took place in Czechoslovakia seventy-six years ago. It is only thus that the comparison might help them to understand what is taking place in Ukraine today. But is this assumption correct? I doubt that it is and have therefore undertaken to make available free online an abbreviated version of Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof’s detailed account of the events leading up to Germany’s Anschluss of the Sudeten Regions in 1938. This account is found in pages 165-249 of his book: 1939 – The War That Had Many Fathers: the Long Run-Up to the Second World War, available online at Lulu. In this abbreviate...

50 Core American Documents: Required Reading for Students, Teachers, and Citizens

by Christopher Burkett

The Ashbrook Center’s 50 Core American Documents is meant to introduce
readers to America’s story as it has unfolded from the American Founding
into the Twentieth Century. Many of the documents emphasize America’s
uniqueness and contributions to the world, but they also present different
views on some of the major issues and disputes in American history and government,
especially on the meaning of liberty, the injustice of slavery, and the
demands of progress. Taken as such, the documents reveal a kind of political
dialogue to readers, an ongoing and profoundly consequential conversation
about how Americans have agreed and often disagreed on the meaning of
freedom and self-government. 50 Core American Documents invites teachers

Song.Song.Song: charms

by Charles Osborne

The early winter winds blew through the lands of forever winter. Three rangers rode this night- men of the Night's Watch searching for Wilding raiders by the Wall. Seer Royce of House William was a young man of Doreen. He was a tall youth of eight and ten clothed in warm leathers, chain mail, and a long sword at his hip. The sword was an exquisite craft of steel, the handle made of fine metal and wood, the end of which was shaped as the head of a cat for the sigil of House William whose proud words are "Pounce like the wild cat." This was Seer Reece's second ranger mission to the forest beyond the Wall. The brothers in black by the Shadow Tower had reported seeing Wilding wounded from a failed raid on Bear Island. Seer Royce, along with two other rangers, Will and Grave, had been dispatche...
