  • Kent At War
    Kent At War

    In the Summer of 1940, the white cliffs of Dover lay within sight of Hitler’s Army. Kent was now at the vanguard of Britain’s defences. For the next five years, the county would be shelled by long-range guns and bombed both day and night. More than 20,000 civilians were killed and injured - but the people of Kent remained defiant. From the Battle of Britain to the terror of the V-weapons, this illuminating Timereel production is the story of England’s front-line county.

  • Dover and Folkestone During the Great War
    Dover and Folkestone During the Great War

    For centuries the south coast of Kent - in particular the ports of Dover and Folkestone - have been England's front line, as her enemies have planned invasions and launched attacks from just across the Channel. During the Great War of 1914-1918 these two towns were again vulnerable to enemy action, and they played a vital role in war effort. As this well-researched and highly illustrated book shows, the people of the Channel Ports suffered from bombardment by air and sea. They also played a significant...

  • NATO before the Korean War
    NATO before the Korean War

    Conventional wisdom has the Korean War putting the “O” in NATO. Prior to that time, from the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty on April 4, 1949, to the North Korean invasion of South Korea on June 25, 1950, the Treaty allies were just going through the motions of establishing an organization. Historian Lawrence Kaplan argues that this is a mistaken view, and he fills significant blanks in the record of 1949 and 1950, which NATO officials and analysts alike have largely ignored. When the Treaty...

    Labor Market Politics and the Great War: The Department of Labor, the States, and the First U.S. Employment Service, 1907-1933

    The Department of Labor seized the opportunity provided by the chaotic labor market conditions during World War I to expand the US Employment Service (USES) and to establish control of the national labor market. That attempt provoked a reaction on the part of states that had created their own employment services and were suspicious of the administrative capacity of the USDES. A prolonged administrative and political struggle ensued, involving not only the Department of Labor and the states but a...

    The Fourth Battle of Winchester: Toward a New Civil War Paradigm

    Students of the Civil War tend to focus attention of the great campaigns and battles that took place in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, a practice that Richard M. McMurry contends has distorted many facets of the war. The July 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, for example, came to be widely, if erroneously, regarded as the Main Description Main Description "decisive battle" and the "turning point" of the war as well as the "high tie" of the Confederacy. In The Fourth Battle of Winchester: Toward a...

Marching off to war with the 27th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, Haven left behind his wife Jane and their three young children. Over the course of four years, he wrote her nearly two hundred letters, collected here for the first time...
