Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a ground-breaking history of the British monarchy in the First World War and of the social and cultural functions of monarchism in the British war effort. Heather Jones examines how the conflict changed British cultural attitudes to the monarchy, arguing that the conflict ultimately helped to consolidate the crown's sacralised status. She looks at how the monarchy engaged with war recruitment, bereavement, gender norms, as well as at its political and military powers and its relationship with Ireland and the empire. She considers the role that monarchism played in military culture and examines royal visits to the front, as well as the monarchy's role in home front morale and in interwar war commemoration. Her findings suggest that the rise of republicanism in wartime Britain has been overestimated and that war commemoration was central to the monarchy's revered interwar status up to the abdication crisis.

Book excerpt: When Charles, the Prince of Wales departed on a trip north to confront the rebellious Scottish Noble Archibald Argyll, he realizes the British Isles were neither as prosperous nor as loyal as he had thought, and that he must begin to lighten his father's load, or lose the Stuart throne in a Civil War. In the 87,000 word historical fiction For King or Country, Prince Charles Stuart seemed to have his future laid out for him, when he was the heir apparent to the English Throne and his father ruled over a "prosperous" and "united" British Isles. Then, a religious discord originating from Scotland uprooted old sentiments between the English Parliament and the English Crown, evolving into a rebellion that threatened to encompass Charles's entire world. In a tale of trials and hardships, Charles must persist through his humility and find his new place in society in order to have any chance of becoming the King of England.

Download or read book For King and Country written by T.L. Smythe and published by Eric Olson. This book was released on 2014-05-20 with total page 101 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I am a simple soldier I am not the strongest man, nor the fastest. I am not the best with the sword or the bow. I am not the quickest to get the point or the wittiest with a retort. I can lift a great weight, run fast, spar with a sword, hunt with a bow, laugh at a jest and respond with a pun. I am not the best or brightest or fastest or smartest or most flippant. Yet I do well in all areas. Not being the best keeps me humble and inspires me to strive for better. While being amongst the best gives me the confidence to always push forward. I joined the Kings Army directly from the farm the day after my Day of Majority rite. I was not driven out for dishonest actions, nor did I run from abusive parents. I did not hunger for great adventure though I did become restless in the tedium of a farmers life. In the end my choice was simple. The King called and I answered. This is my story.

Summary Book Review For King and Kanata by Timothy Charles Winegard:
Download or read book For King and Kanata written by Timothy Charles Winegard and published by Univ. of Manitoba Press. This book was released on 2012 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The first comprehensive history of the Aboriginal First World War experience on the battlefield and the home front. When the call to arms was heard at the outbreak of the First World War, Canada's First Nations pledged their men and money to the Crown to honour their long-standing tradition of forming military alliances with Europeans during times of war, and as a means of resisting cultural assimilation and attaining equality through shared service and sacrifice. Initially, the Canadian government rejected these offers based on the belief that status Indians were unsuited to modern, civilized warfare. But in 1915, Britain intervened and demanded Canada actively recruit Indian soldiers to meet the incessant need for manpower. Thus began the complicated relationships between the Imperial Colonial and War Offices, the Department of Indian Affairs, and the Ministry of Militia that would affect every aspect of the war experience for Canada's Aboriginal soldiers. In his groundbreaking new book, For King and Kanata, Timothy C. Winegard reveals how national and international forces directly influenced the more than 4,000 status Indians who voluntarily served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force between 1914 and 1919--a per capita percentage equal to that of Euro-Canadians--and how subsequent administrative policies profoundly affected their experiences at home, on the battlefield, and as returning veterans."--Publisher's website.
Summary Book Review Edith Wharton and Mary Roberts Rinehart at the Western Front, 1915 by Ed Klekowski:
Download or read book Edith Wharton and Mary Roberts Rinehart at the Western Front, 1915 written by Ed Klekowski and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2018-06-26 with total page 233 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: By 1915, the Western Front was a 450-mile line of trenches, barbed wire and concrete bunkers, stretching across Europe. Attempts to break the stalemate were murderous and futile. Censorship of the press was extreme--no one wanted the carnage reported. Remakably, the Allied command gave two intrepid American women, Edith Wharton and Mary Roberts Rinehart, permission to visit the front and report on what they saw. Their travels are reconstructed from their own published accounts, Rinehart's unpublished day-by-day notes, and the writings of other journalists who toured the front in 1915. The present authors' explorations of the places Wharton and Rinehart visited serves as a travel guide to the Western Front.

Download or read book Peninsular Eyewitnesses written by Charles Esdaile and published by Pen and Sword. This book was released on 2008-09-30 with total page 353 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many books have been written about the British struggle against Napoleon in the Peninsula. A few recent studies have given a broader view of the ebb and flow of a long war that had a shattering impact on Spain and Portugal and marked the history of all the nations involved. But none of these books has concentrated on how these momentous events were perceived and understood by the people who experienced them. Charles Esdaile has brought together a vivid selection of contemporary accounts of every aspect of the war to create a panoramic yet minutely detailed picture of those years of turmoil. The story is told through memoirs, letters and eyewitness testimony from all sides. Instead of generals and statesmen, we mostly hear from less-well-known figures - junior officers and ordinary soldiers and civilians who recorded their immediate experience of the conflict.
