Common Core Standards and World War II: A Literary Veteran's Day Observance

by Pat Scales

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a five-star general and commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, established a committee in 1954 to plan a Veterans Day observance. This day honors all veterans of the United States and is held each year on November 11 with a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath is placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and followed by a parade of colors. In 2015, the United States and the world will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Victory in Europe occurred on May 8, 1945, but the official end of the war came when Japan surrendered to the United States on August 15, 1945. Some students may have family members who remember World War II, but most only know the hardships both at home and in foreign war zones thr...

The Souls of Black Folk (AmazonClassics Edition)

by W. E. B. Du Bois

First published in 1903, this groundbreaking work is a cornerstone of African American literary history and a foundational text in the field of sociology. In these fourteen essays, W. E. B. Du Bois introduces and explores the concept of “double-consciousness”—a term he uses to describe the experience of living as an African American and having a “sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others.”Though an examination of Black life in post–Civil War America, The Souls of Black Folk has had a lasting impact on civil rights and the discussion of race in the United States.Revised edition: Previously published as The Souls of Black Folk, this edition of The Souls of Black Folk (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions....

The twentieth century’s fate hung in the balance, as Nazi Germany had marched across Europe, bringing the blitzkrieg, the Holocaust, and the mad dreams of Adolf Hitler across the bloodied landscape of Europe. France had fallen, and until the Americans joined the battle in December 1941, the balance of power was securely in the hands of the Third Reich. But even as the Allied forces joined together under the leadership of Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Germany continued to win battles. In order for the Nazis to be stopped, the Allies had to invade...

The Survivor's Song: Unarmed Soldiers - Budapest to Stalingrad and back

by Andrew Fodor and Thomas C. Fodor

A tragicomic, inspirational memoir of surviving the Holocaust we seldom hear about. The author spent nearly three years on the road with the Hungarian forced labor battalions during WWII, taking him from Budapest to the area of Stalingrad. Armed with only his wits, a smattering of courage, some unexpected help and lots of luck, he survives the brutal conditions with his joie de vivre and sense of humor intact. During this time, his tasks included all the common work assigned to forced laborers: road repair, building defensive fortifications, supplying tanks with fuel, clearing mine-fields, as well as the common military folly of moving piles of dirt from one side of the road to the other. To this were added the roles of tailor, office clerk, official counterfeiter and general observer of h...

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...

Battle of Stalingrad* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The Battle of Stalingrad, perceived by historians as the most important battle of World War II and regarded by Russians as the most significant battle in their country’s history, cannot be viewed solely as a military engagement between two powerful, long-time foes. The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I’s Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for vic...

The Ark Of The Covenant: New Revealing Discoveries

by Cheryl Leonard

The Ark of the Covenant is an ornate, sacred chest built by the Israelites, with specifications given to them according to God. It was God’s pledge that he would dwell with them and provide guidance for them through this ancient treasure. The mystique of The Ark of the Covenant is one of the world’s most mysterious and intriquing, unsolved mysteries. It was constructed approximately 3000 years ago, and when King Solomon’s Temple was captured and destroyed in 586 B.C, it disappeared forever. Scholars and archaeologists have steadfastly debated whether this artifact was captured, hidden, or destroyed. Many wonders have been attributed to The Ark in The Bible. This book presents the history and background of The Ark, its significance and power, and discusses the evidence and research,...

Recommendation on Studying Japanese History to Know Japan Volume 1

by Susumu Kodai

To study a history of our own country is that we know the reasons why we think and do in this way. There are both good things and bad things in the reasons. And there are ones that we can improve and the others that we cannot be changed by something ingrained in the Japanese spirit. We must know the good and bad things in the reasons, and the good things keep continuing and the bad things have to be improved, in order to progress towards the future. I think that is a main purpose to study the history. The textbooks of history for school education written with a lot of beautiful words are useless to do so. It is important to read various books, and my own opinion must not be determined by feedback from one direction. Also it is necessary to face the history without closing our eyes ...
