An excellent, extensive, narrative about the First World War. Sadly, our history books, particularly school textbooks, portray a totally one sided, mostly false picture of WW-I, and its participants. I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to make sense of the events leading up to WW-II, which are also shown in a very deceptive fashion!! Verified purchase: Yes Condition: New.

It reveals how accounts of the war's origins have been deliberately falsified to conceal the guilt of the secret cabal of very rich and powerful men in London responsible for the most heinous crime perpetrated on humanity. For ten years, they plotted the destruction of Germany as the first stage of their plan to take control of the world.
The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was no chance happening. It lit a fuse that had been carefully set through a chain of command stretching from Sarajevo through Belgrade and St Petersburg to that cabal in London. Our understanding of these events has been firmly trapped in a web of falsehood and duplicity carefully constructed by the victors at Versailles in and maintained by compliant historians ever since.
The official version is fatally flawed, warped by the volume of evidence they destroyed or concealed from public view. Hidden History poses a tantalising challenge. The authors ask only that you examine the evidence they lay before you.
Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War
Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. Almost anything you can think of was recorded, from how many prisoners were taken in a given battle to the number of troops in each age group who contracted a venereal disease. Yet this variety of data is indispensible for understanding how Europe became locked in a devastating stalemate for four long years, and how the Central Powers were finally defeated, only four months after they seemed on the verge of victory. Sniper Jackson: A First Novel. Frederick Sleath. Although it reads as a novel, Sniper Jackson can be justifiably viewed as 'faction' weaving true events around a mythical character.
This was a commonplace method of writing at a time when many serving or ex-soldiers did not want individuals or events in their books to be identified, and many used pseudonym's to conceal their identities.?? Sleath's work bears all the hallmarks of personal experience, in particular those small details of trench life and the insights into the close-knit camaraderie commonly found in specialist units that only those who have experienced it could know. Indeed, the book was praised for its accuracy by one of the pioneers of British trench sniping, Major Frederick Crum, in his own Memoirs of a Rifleman Scout.??
It would be a mistake to dismiss such literature as imagination or fabrication, bearing little relationship to reality. The truth is that such books actually contain a wealth of information and Sniper Jackson is a unique piece of eyewitness history about a rarely discussed element of warfare on the Western Front in the First World War. The Black Country in the Great War. Michael Pearson. This is not a book about the Great War; it is about life during the war. Changes in people's lives: their work, home, food, entertainment and news. I used original research material including newspapers, to paint a picture of life in the Black Country.??
Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War by Gerry Docherty
Manufacturing was vital; we were well-equipped to supply the engines of war. The region had motor manufacturers who made aero engines, tanks, guns, munitions and much more. Towards the end of the war the Black Country became one huge munitions works!?? Some of the greatest changes were societal, women's role changed massively. Wider social change involved the first steps towards equality between the sexes. By women could vote and stand as MPs. At work, women became clerks, tram drivers, munitions workers and more. With so many men away, without women the war could not have been won.??
This was the first modern conflict, truly the First World War, where troops globally converged, mainly on France and Belgium, to fight a common enemy. It began in August amid much excitement and the initial months saw the British Army grow hugely. There were those who did not want to fight, their circumstances will be examined, as well as methods used to 'encourage' them to sign up.??
The war developed into trench warfare, with heavy casualties, vastly more than thought imaginable.
World War I: Britain’s share of Guilt
Most Black Country families lost one or more of their loved ones; but there was little time to mourn; in many cases reports were not made public for some time; a well-oiled propaganda machine saw that news did not seriously damage morale.?? In war came to the Black Country through a Zeppelin raid. Its affect was devastating and impacted widely as restrictions were placed on lighting and other measures to minimise the effects of probable future raids. By the Black Country had to cope with more wounded from the front line.

Hospitals were full and further measures were needed to accommodate our returning injured heroes. Treatment, feeding and entertainment for the wounded are all examined. Indeed, generally food supply was of concern from day one of the war. Prices rose, supply became short, there were riots protesting about 'profiteering' and eventually rationing was imposed. Alcohol supply was strictly controlled, pubs closed for a period during the day, to stop essential workers neglecting their duties. This change illustrates how life in Britain changed; it was the s before this restriction on pub opening hours was finally lifted.??
By the war became a marathon, with no end in sight. The Government sought innovative means to raise money and the Black Country played its part in supporting those initiatives. Parcels to prisoners of war, troops serving at the front and the wounded were all catered for. Christmas traditions were preserved, mainly for the children, with parties for those whose father was away at war. Similar ebooks. A few remains of the rev.

James Joll's study is not simply another narrative, retracing the powder trail that was finally ignited at Sarajevo.
It is an ambitious and wide-ranging analysis of the historical forces at work in the Europe of , and the very different ways in which historians have subsequently attempted to understand them. The importance of the theme, the breadth and sympathy of James Joll's scholarship, and the clarity of his exposition, have all contributed to the spectacular success of the book since its first appearance in
