📒Reminiscences Illustrated Edition ✍ General Douglas MacArthur
✏Reminiscences Illustrated Edition Book Summary : Written in his own hand and finished only weeks before his death, this memoir by Gen. Douglas MacArthur spans more than half a century of modern history. His vantage point at center stage during the major controversies of the twentieth century afforded him unique views of the conflicts in which he played a vital role. No soldier in recent times has been more admired—or reviled. Liberator of the Philippines, shogun of occupied Japan, victor of the battle of Inchon, the general was a national hero when suddenly relieved of his duties by President Truman in 1950. His supporters believe his genius for command and skill as a strategist stand as landmarks in military history. His critics are not so kind, calling him a gigantic ego paying homage to himself in this book. Regardless, Reminiscences is a moving final testament by one of America’s most decorated heroes, decade by decade, battlefield by battlefield. After graduation from West Point with the highest average ever achieved by a cadet, MacArthur served in Vera Cruz during the Mexican uprisings and later in World War I. His courage in the trenches and his leadership of the famous Rainbow Division won him seven Silver Stars. Appointed Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the Pacific in World War II, he was the architect of the campaign to drive the Japanese from their strongholds at Bataan, Corregidor, and New Guinea. His account of the war is dramatically punctuated with revealing portraits of key personalities and insights into his stands on controversial issues. Richly illustrated throughout. “Douglas MacArthur’s memoirs...record an extraordinary and controversial public career of more than fifty years—as MacArthur wanted it remembered.”—Newsweek “MacArthur was praised and blamed most of the time for the wrong reasons. His Reminiscences, written in the last two years of his life, should help put him back in perspective.”—Time
📒Reminiscences Of A Grenadier Illustrated Edition ✍ Major E. R. M. Fryer
✏Reminiscences Of A Grenadier Illustrated Edition Book Summary : Includes the First World War Illustrations Pack – 73 battle plans and diagrams and 198 photos “An account of the Front Line from the Guards Brigade The Guards have always been known as ‘The Gentlemen’s Sons’ and it seems that the author of this book was no exception. At work in ‘the City’ when war broke out and he managed initially to be elected to that other gentleman’s club of the time—The Honourable Artillery Company. It was with the HAC that he went to the continent and saw action in the early engagements of the war before selection for cadet school and a commission. Upon returning to the Front, Fryer embarked on a wartime career that would keep him in action almost constantly throughout the hostilities and which he would report with nothing less than the casual savoir faire one would expect of him. Despite his style Fryer clearly saw hard campaigning at Givenchy, Loos, the Hohenzollern Redoubt, Ypres, the Somme and many other brutal and significant actions until the final offensives of 1918.”-Print Ed.
📒Reminiscences Of The Civil War Illustrated Edition ✍ General John B. Gordon
✏Reminiscences Of The Civil War Illustrated Edition Book Summary : Few generals of the Confederate States Army had such a glittering career as John Brown Gordon, although without any formal military training he rose from captain of a company of Georgia mountineers to the rank of Major-General. He was described by the Robert E. Lee as one of his finest commanders and that his actions were “characterized by splendid audacity”. He was distinguished in many the early battles of the Army of North Viginia; First Bull Run, Malvern Hill; holding the vital “Bloody Lane” at Antietam he was shot five times as he encouraged his men. After a period of recuperation he plunged back into the fray and won further laurels at battles at Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House and the final surrender at Appomattox. His memoirs are justly famous and are an acclaimed classic. “For many years I have been urged to place on record my reminiscences of the war between the States. In undertaking the task now, it is not my purpose to attempt a comprehensive description of that great struggle, nor an elaborate analysis of the momentous interests and issues involved. The time may not have arrived for a full and fair history of that most interesting period in the Republic’s life. The man capable of writing it with entire justice to both sides is perhaps yet unborn. ... I have also recorded in this volume a large number of those characteristic and thrilling incidents which illustrate a unique and hitherto unwritten phase of the war, the story of which should not be lost, because it is luminous with the noblest lessons. Many of these incidents came under my own observation”--Introduction.
📒Reminiscences Of The Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment Illustrated Edition ✍ Captain John G. B. Adams
✏Reminiscences Of The Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment Illustrated Edition Book Summary : Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack – 224 battle plans, campaign maps and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities. The Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment had a long and glorious history during the American Civil War, as the author states in his introduction— “For thirty-four years I have waited patiently for someone to write a history of the 19th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers, but fearing that it may never be accomplished, I have concluded to send out this story. I do not dignify it by calling it a history. It is simply a soldier’s story, told by one of the "boys." Most of it is written from memory. The account of prison life is taken from an imperfect diary, kept by the writer while a prisoner of war. “ Captain Adams recounts the history of his illustrious regiment through the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville to perhaps their finest hour at Gettysburg, where five men of the 19th won the Congressional Medal of Honour. His own troubles in the war became worse upon his capture by Confederate soldiers after the battle of Cold Harbor, and, despite escaping, was recaptured. As he says, his is a soldier’s story. A very engaging one at that.

He was engaged at First Manassas, Romney, Kernstown, the Seven Days Campaign, Cedar Mountain, Second Manassas, Harper’s Ferry Antietam, and Fredericksberg. By this time his distinguished conduct had led him to be promoted to Major and fought on at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Cold Harbor before the final surrender at Appomattox.

✏A War Minister And His Work Reminiscences Of 1914 1918 Illustrated Edition Book Summary : Includes the First World War Illustrations Pack – 73 battle plans and diagrams and 198 photos Even before the advent of the First World War, General Der Artillerie Hermann Von Stein, had had a long and distinguished career in the Prussian Army stretching back to 1873. He served in various artillery and staff posts and rubbed shoulders with the heads of the General Staff such as Von Schlieffen, both Von Moltkes and Von Waldersee (of whom he includes portraits in this volume). In 1914 he was appointed to the 14th Reserve Corps which advanced with 2nd Army as part of the right hook through northern France before being bogged down in the stalemate of the trenches of the Western Front. He and his men were those who stubbornly defended Thiepval during the bloody battle of the Somme in 1916. After his successful field commands he was appointed War Minister for Prussia, a post that he held until the end of the war. His reminiscences offer a little seen view of the German High Command during the First World War.
