    WMSB Plant Watering Spikes Set of 4 Water Plants with This Great House Plant Watering System Perfect as a Plant Waterer and Amazing for Vacation Plant Waterin review []  2020-1-16 20:30

    Been using this product for a while now, I was a tad unsure at first, because it's so big, also I was skeptical that just any old bottle from around the house was going to work and not just leak all over.BUT, any old bottle does work. ese are beautiful huge if you couldn't tell. I wasn't positive it was going to work for what I wanted it for. However, it's really a excellent match.I have a hibiscus in a huge pot in the house (live in WI, and it isn't a hardy variety) I'm not the greatest at keeping my plants watered. Especially not ones that are finicky to boot. This guy is finicky and I've nearly killed it about 3 times a year since I got it back in ese cool things have helped me be a small less Grimm Reaper than usual, which is so awesome.I love that they are terracotta, they came well packaged, and I wouldn't have any major concerns about them being damaged in transit thanks to the care in packaging.I popped it in the pot, and I don't move the spike at all. I just pull the bottle out and fill it up and flip it quickly so I don't spill a ton.I only have 1 in my hibiscus, and truth be told I haven't used the other 3, because I don't have any other potted plants huge enough for these spikes. But I may give them a test in my garden this year.... if this winter ever ends.

    WMSB Plant Watering Spikes Set of 4 Water Plants with This Great House Plant Watering System Perfect as a Plant Waterer and Amazing for Vacation Plant Waterin review []  2020-1-16 20:30

    I had seen a neighbor use this type spikes in her plants, and I thought they would be a amazing respond to watering in my yard. There were 4 spikes in my order. One broke when I was pushing it into the soil, one broke a week later when I refilled the bottle with water and place it down into the spike, and the other two broke within the next two weeks. They are shown and advertised as being created to keep a wine (or similar) bottle, but they are so fragile that they break when you push the bottle down into the spike. I was extremely cautious after breaking the first one, but it was impossible. I cannot recommend.

    I bought these before a long trip and am so grateful i did. I thought of myself as a beautiful decent green thumb, but after using these, my plants have never looked better. They are greener and healthier and I don't have to think of watering them so often! None have broken and I've been using them about 9 months or so. I soaked them for the first use and since then i just hold refilling the bottles. A few have started to discolor, but it's fine.

    WMSB Plant Watering Spikes Set of 4 Water Plants with This Great House Plant Watering System Perfect as a Plant Waterer and Amazing for Vacation Plant Waterin review []  2020-1-16 20:30

    Overall a amazing product. You'll need a long neck wine bottle. I had one that didn't fit, but the rest have worked well. I search that the spike needs to be placed in almost exactly vertical position. I initially ordered it for a medium-sized plant I have at work over the Christmas holiday, but found that the length and weight of the long neck wine bottle combined with the spike created it a small too unstable and I wasn't confident in leaving it unattended. Now, I have them in two huge house plants secured inside three steaks for stability. One spike broke when I was pushing it in, but I may have been using it too much force.

    Do as advertised, and as far as price, best price I could find. The downer is that they are extremely not durable. If you USE them extensively, like refilling every week (outside, dry hot sun) they will break one by one at the entrance. All four were clay chips at the end of summer.

    One broke when taking out of the box. Another broke when refilling the bottle and putting the bottle back in. Have a bunch various ones that are no issue. This is not a amazing brand. Total waste of money

    I'm poor at watering plants but with these and a huge wine bottle, I'm amazing for at least two weeks or more. Very easy. Fill up wine bottle, put spike on top, invert and gently put in plant. That's it.

    Doesn’t work at all. The first one I picked up shattered when trying to place into a pot. The water also doesn’t sleep out into the pot like it’s supposed to. The water level was the same when I came back from a trip.

    Lake Nipigon: Where the Great Lakes Begin review []  2020-1-20 19:47

    Enjoyed the information, but there was quite a bit of repeat. I've been on the lake about 10 trips, one week each. So, the history of the lake was very interesting.

    The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914; Barbara W. Tuchman's Great War Series review [Book]  2018-4-12 18:0

    The Proud Turret is an haunting tale of the latest few decades leading up to Globe Battle I and the advent of the modern world, or as Ms. Tuchman puts it,'the not good twentieth century'. If you ere looking for a dry, precise, and comprehensive history circa 1890-1914 look elsewhere,what we have here is an engrossing tale of humanity in all its glories and seeming imperfections as seen in the magnifying glass of a short period of time presented in depth by someone who has done her homework. The author's life is worthy of its own book. Born into a Fresh York brownstone with a silver spoon in her mouth, she witnessed one of the opening engagments of WW I between the elements of the British and German navies as the ship she was traveling on approached Istanbul/Constantinople on a visit to her grandfather(a Morgenthau who was U.S. ambassador to Turkey at the time). After a stint working in Japan for the US government she took a job at The Nation(owned by her father) and by the age of 24 was covering the Spanish Civil Battle on location. She's knew how to write, she had a passion for research and was able to submerge her class and social prejudices to show an admirably even handed presentation of the facts. Add to that she was a gifted story teller and thought her purpose in writing was to covey passion and obtain the reader to turn the page. With The Proud Tower,she has succeeded and written in the early 1960's it continues to shine as an example of 'popular' history as it should be.

    The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914; Barbara W. Tuchman's Great War Series review [Book]  2018-4-12 18:0

    Perhaps my favorite time in history. I might extend a bit further into the middle of the 20th century but this time just before the outbreak of the two most devastating battles in modern times, separated by only two decades that changed so much, is fat with fresh discoveries, fresh understandings, fresh technologies. It was that time in the history of science when a lot of thought that all was now known and all that was left was taking care of a few loose ends, at least Lord Kelvin thought so. In spite of the fact that no one had any idea what the sun was created of, Kelvin thought he could create necessary and relevant pronouncements that outraged others. It was a time when a very influential school of thought in chemistry existed in Germany that rejected the idea of the atom. It was a time when all could be explained by electromagnetism, gravity, and thermodynamics (at least as it was known prior to about 1900).Then in 1895 Wilhelm Rontgen discovered something new. If it had been seen by others it had never been described before. He called it X-rays. And the photographs it produced! The photographs sold the importance of the discovery, anyone who might have noticed the fresh radiation had not done that. The photographs were circulated and the enormity of the discovery quickly spread. This led directly to Henri Becquerel’s discovery of natural, spontaneous radioactivity. Entirely fresh forces had now been discovered and Kelvin would be gently admonished for his ignorance. This period of 1890 to 1914 also introduced the genius of Max Planck to the world. Einstein would have his Miracle Year (the atom would not be retired from scientific thought), he would start to work on general relativity and a fresh understanding of gravity. And Nobel Prizes to celebrate the fresh discoveries would start to be awarded. From the abject ignorance place forth as fact by Kelvin at the beginning of that period we end with radioactivity, the confirmation of the atom and the discovery of subatomic particles, the unique theory of relativity, the beginnings of quantum theory, and Newton’s understanding of gravity would be forever sides all of the rich, exciting, challenging, frightening and tragic happenings told in this story by Barbara Tuchman, all of those scientific advances, and more, also occurred. I did not expect her to contain much, if any, of that. I wanted to learn about all the rest. I wanted to obtain a richer understanding of that age other than the nostalgic, “simpler time of innocence before the Amazing War” that frequently attend any tale of the battle itself. This twenty-four year period was not easy or innocent, I knew as much but Ms Tuchman has really done a unbelievable job of introducing the reader to the social, political and cultural struggles and happenings of that time. That is why I got this book. I had no idea of the impact and influence of the Anarchist movement and that alone was a magnificent ever, I admit I was a small disappointed she could not search the words or zone for at least a brief mention of those startling and significant scientific discoveries. It is necessary to mention that Ms Tuchman does contain some of the necessary technological expositions and advances of the age. It is the other, perhaps much more significant, progress in science that is not covered. It is a shame that necessary famous historians like Tuchman search it difficult, or nearly impossible, to write about science history while those like Isaacson are not interested in writing about more.If you would like a amazing understanding of the political, cultural and social happenings at work prior to the Amazing War, written by a first class researcher and author, obtain this book.

    I've been a amazing fan of Barbara Tuchman's writing ever since I read "A Distant Mirror" years ago. The depth of her research is almost incredible, and the info she reveals about topics I thought I was fairly well versed in has me frequently saying to myself "Hey! Oh yeah, now that finally makes sense!" or else "Gosh! Humans are lunatics! Nothing they do makes sense!" She recreates other eras and epochs with such mastery, she recreates major characters so that they become familiar--as though one knows them personally, or at least has seen and heard them in person. I love to lose myself in the worlds she writes of. A statement in the "Forward" of this book intrigued me. She writes that the "Grosse Politik," the endless chronologies of WWI, have been used up and are, after all, misleading...because [they] let us to rest on the simple illusion that it is "they," the naughty statesmen, who are always responsible for battle while "we," the innocent people, are merely led. That impression is a mistake." Her book goes on to prove it.

    The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914; Barbara W. Tuchman's Great War Series review [Book]  2018-4-12 18:0

    Another tremendous book by Barbara Tuchman. This one deals with the world, primarily Europe, in the years leading up to the First Globe Battle and is a natural prequel to THE GUNS OF AUGUST. Subjects covered contain the British ruling class, the rise of Socialism and Anarchism, the United States' shift from Isolationism to Imperialism, and Berlin's "Cultural Neroism" at the turn of the 20th Century. The major complaint is that it is not a unified history but a set of articles or essays around common themes of social change, surging technology, and rising Democracy. Read it anyway; it's wonderful.

    This is one of my all-time favorite books, one that I revisit again and again. I have a paperback copy I can dip into with my coffee in the morning, and it's on my Kindle so I can read it anytime, anywhere. My favorite part is the story of how the masses of people rose up to improve their not good living and working conditions in this era, and how some of the well-to-do stepped forward to support them. There are inspiring stories of extraordinary individuals who grew up in dire poverty, learned to read, and went on to take leadership roles to support their people. There are also in-depth profiles of a lot of strong people of the era that support the reader understand their choices to support change society, or to defend the status quo. It's fascinating to see a figure like young Winston Churchill playing a role in shaping his times, and being shaped by them in turn. And it's necessary to understand the militarism and other factors that led up to Globe Battle I, which both stalled social progress and generated it, at a not good cost. In all, this is the type of book I can pick up and begin to any page and read with fascination as long as I like. I highly recommend it to aficionados of European history, and to anyone who wants to learn more about the role this era played in shaping modern society. In view of current times, it also offers lessons in how history repeats itself. All this, and Tuchman's perfect writing brings it all to life.

    A unbelievable acc of a very complex globe I, for one, never knew about. We think that today the globe is in ferment, but so was the globe of our ancestors. A lot of of the movements and passions that were so powerful at the turn of the 19th Century are still with us, but a lot of are now only obscure movements that I was only slightly aware of. This is a worthy prequel to Ms. Tuchman's magnum ops, The Guns of August and Ms. McMillan's, Paris 1919, for understanding the movements that are still working their method through the world.

    This book for me was disappointing. I had read Tuchman's "The Guns of August" in college and reread it not long ago. I found her research fascinating and spot on. In this book the disappointment was in her tedious detail of what seemed (to me at least) minor and page consuming detail. I guess I was expecting the same kind of work as in "The Guns of August" but for me that work wasn't there. Kind of a slow read, interesting, but not as all encompassing as it could be given its title. Worth buying but obtain the less expensive copy.

    Pros: Always always always learn something from Barbara Tuchman's books. Several chapters were outstanding, including the English government transition with Lord Salisbury, Anarchists, the Dreyfus Affair, American Imperialism (especially learning about Thomas Reed and re-learning about how the US helped muck up Cuba, Hawaii and the Philippines), and the Hague Conferences combined with the Machine Age of 1998. Will continue to seek out Tuchman's books and re read her other ns: Struggled with several chapters, including the subjects of composer Richard Strauss, the transfer of power in England (again) and the although interesting, the rise of Marxism, Socialism and symbolically, the death of Jean version Art: 3 out of 5. A bit bland and blurry.

    The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914; Barbara W. Tuchman's Great War Series review [Book]  2018-4-12 18:0

    Esteemed historian Barbara Tuchman has provided a backdrop versus which we can view the economic and political problems of today. Beginning in the late 1800s, she presents and explains the economic inequalities in cultures throughout western civilizations and the political movements that grew out of the need to create change. She follows the "Upstairs/Downstairs" mentality from one continent to the next demonstrating how obscene wealth and priviledge work to supress those in extreme poverty. Tuchmann identifies the personalities that arose out of international movments to bring human dignity and prosperity the middle and lower classes. Tuchmannn provides a context through which to view modern American and the importance of our elections and different contemporary movements. This book will support you understand the signifigance of the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street, what's event in Michigan, what's not event on Capitol Hill, etc. The only problem with this book is that you'll wish to read more.

    A lot of other reviewers have commented that The Proud Turret is actually a collection of magazine articles written by Barbara Tuchman which all happen to be about the western globe from 1890 to 1914. Because they are a collection of articles and not a cohesive book, there is no sense of impending doom as the globe marches towards the "war to end all wars." The book is told in three parts on British society, anarchism, America transitioning from the Gilded Age to the early 1900s progressive period, France during the Dreyfus Affair, a series of global peace conferences triggered largely by Russia, Germany's militarism as told primarily through its culture, further shifts in England, and socialism. I found the chapters on the Dreyfus Affair and the peace conferences most fascinating. The former because I know it as a major happening in French history, but did not know how it permeated through French society for so long. The latter because I had no idea these major peace conferences took put and seem more applicable to the post-World Battle 1920s than pre-World Battle 1890s/1900s. Tuchman talks about historical figures well known and forgotten in weaving together each section, taking us from the traditional British government of Lord Salisbury to the transnational socialist movement led by figures such as Eugene Debs and Jaures. I picked up the book after hearing about it from multiple history writers, including the author of a latest volume on Speaker Thomas Reed who gets nice treatment here. The book ends with Globe Battle I beginning, as the transnational socialist movements gives method to more nationalistic tendencies, at least for a few years.

    The War of 1812: A Captivating Guide to the Military Conflict between the United States of America and Great Britain That Started during the Napoleonic Wars review []  2020-1-13 18:52

    Book Review Written January 6, 2020The Battle of 1812 A Captivating Tutorial to the Military Conflict between the United States of America and Amazing Britain That Started during the Napoleonic Wars, By Captivating HistoryKindle Edition (100 Pages)This is a concise acc of the happenings associated with the United States of America's armed conflict with the British Empire in the early 19th Century. In retrospect, the decision by U.S. to declare battle on the British Empire, appears an act of amazing hubris. At the time the U.S. possessed only a small, militia based Army, and a little Navy, while Britain was an acknowledged military superpower, boosting a large, war hardened, and veteran standing Troops and the most strong Navy in the world. The skillfully organized and well written narrative chronicles the war's critical aspects, beginning with a brief overview of the factors leading to war, followed by brief biographies of the most necessary leaders on both sides, statistics similar to the forces involved in the fighting and the manpower losses sustained during the war. The author also provides an perfect timeline of the war, which an perfect tool to enhance the reader's understanding regarding the conduct of the war. The narrative continues with detailed discussion describing the war's conduct, organized around the happenings that occured chronologically in each of the major theaters, including: the U.S. force's three invasions of Canada , wars fought in the western frontier; the Battle in the East including the British Army's invasion on the east coast and burning of Washington D.C., the Creek War, and General Jackson's conquest of Spanish forces in Florida, and the British Troops at the War of Fresh Orleans; the successful wars fought by the U.S. Navy throughout the course of the War; and finally closing with insightful discussion of the peace negotiations conducted in Ghent, Belgium, which resulted in ending the hostilities. The author's exceptional narrative style describes these happenings in an interesting and conversational written manner, that captures the remarkable saga of America's final wars with England and it's impact on both countries subsequent e Battle of 1812 was likely the most pointless battle in American history. In terms of lives lost and funds expended the battle effort significantly drained American resources, seemingly all without any tangible gain. When the Battle ended three years after in began both sides were left standing in much the same position geographically, as they were when the Battle began. Also, the Treaty of Ghent nullified all the Native American lands that the Americans had acquired. This led to a century-long conflict versus the Native American tribes, which saw numerous casualties and brutalities inflicted both sides. However, there were some positive outcomes of this war. After hostilities ceased, the U.S. and Britain were closer than ever before. Although the two [email protected]#$%! a few rough spots during the 1860s, their relationship remains powerful to this day. Another positive outcome was the understanding of the need for a trained standing U.S. Troops and Navy. The concept of a trained standing troops was already in practice by 1814, but afterward, it became the norm. After analyzing their not good performance in most of the War's land battles, the American military concluded that the difference between them and the British forces was training. They determined that the Canadian militia were trained by British regulars during the battle and, as a result, performed better than the average American militiaman. The U.S. Navy's gained recognition and was superbly outfitted thereafter due to its awesome performance in the War. Arguably, if it not for the U.S. Navy, the Battle of 1812 would have ended much sooner and with an American defeat. And, finally,the Battle of 1812 resulted in the emergence of a fresh generation of American leaders, such as, Generals Andrew Jackson, Jacob Brown, and Winfield Scott, all who rose to prominence, as well as four future presidents—Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, James Monroe, and William Henry Harrison. All of this interesting history come to life in the pages of this perfect bookThis book provides an excellent, straight forward acc that is simple to read and understand. It was thoroughly researched, concise, informative, well written and presented with an unbiased perspective. The narrative was extremely engaging and enjoyable to read. The author provided perfect insights regarding the political, economic, social, and cultural impacts of Battle of 1812. Further, his analysis regarding the impact of the Battle on future relations between Native Americans and the Federal government and most U.S.. citizens was particularly insightful and Fascinating. I strongly recommend this book to any reader that is at least a small curious about history or whom enjoys a good, nonfiction story. It is a real Five Star read!

    The War of 1812: A Captivating Guide to the Military Conflict between the United States of America and Great Britain That Started during the Napoleonic Wars review []  2020-1-13 18:52

    Historian H W Brands states that the American battle hawks considered the Battle of 1812 to be the second battle of independence with Britain.  The most serious issue was the outrage of British impressment of American sailors, to the tune of almost 10,000 men.  The Napoleonic Battles were still ongoing and the British and French established edicts versus the Americans from trading with each other.  America saw this as undermining America's independence. Readers have to feel sorry for the American Indians; they were pulled into the fracas, on both sides.  The British continued to arm the Indians (with guns) while the Americans did not wish them to have the weapons (to war the removement of Indian tribes from valuable lands).  Over 10,000 Indians were killed in this war, while the main combatants had considerably fewer casualties.  This was the first time I'd heard that the Spanish entered the battle on the side of the e author's use of the timeline was most helpful in keeping the battle-rich text straight.  By having the date and location, it was easier to hold the action and leaders straight, as they moved from one war to another.  I don't think I can overemphasize the value of the timeline in helping the reader hold the wars and incidents straight when there were a amazing number of wars taking place.Overall, this is a fine piece of research and writing.  The author clearly gave the incidents leading up to the war, the wars and other actions of the war, and the results.  Tragically, after all that death and destruction, not much changed after the Battle of 1812 except that the biggest contingent of participants to die were 10,000 Indians.

    This book is much more inclusive than others that I've read on the battle of 1812. It traces to causes of the battle to the Louisiana Purchase and the British backing in the battle with Tecumseh. The actual fighting begins in 1811 at e book gives a detailed timeline for the war, biographies of the major leader: American, Canadian and British. The chronological campaigns and wars through to Fresh Orleans. The two campaigns spoken of at length deals with the western part of the battle with Tecumseh versus William Henry Harrison, and the fighting with the Creeks and Spanish versus Andrew Jackson. All the books I've read previously to this one omits these campaigns and is is by far the best book on a battle of 1812. It is told in an understandable method and covers every aspect of the war.

    As usual - a very competent 'look' at a complex subject, presented in an eminently readable format.…. with the usual depth of detailed research reflected in the e 'Captivating' writer/editor has a penchant for covering indigenous Americans and their plights and e depth of detail in the wide range of different wars (while enlightening) can induce some e timeline jumps around somewhat but there is a section on happenings with e overall impression one gets is of a series of gaffes and blunders - which, in the end, achieved absolutely nothing but deaths and destruction - like so a lot of previous, and subsequent, wars....

    The War of 1812: A Captivating Guide to the Military Conflict between the United States of America and Great Britain That Started during the Napoleonic Wars review []  2020-1-13 18:52

    The year was 1812A litany of aggression's by the British versus the American states are often cited as reasons for the war: restrictions on trade by neutral nations to a Europe dominated by Napoleon Bonaparte; the blockading of ports and trade routes; and forcible presentiment of sailors from American vessels into Royal Navy service, vividly demonstrated in their attack on the U.S. frigate Chesapeake in 1807—led to a declaration of battle in June 1812.. There is small doubt that the French Revolutionary battles (1793-1801) and the Napoleonic battles (1803-15) set the scene for Anglo-American is book is written about a time period that has largely been forgotten. It was an necessary time in our nation's history and the author does an perfect job keeping it all straight with comprehensive research, and has told of the battle the incidents clearly leading up to the war, the wars and the results. With the use of an perfect timeline, one can see the different wars and maintain a thorough understanding of the participant’s, from both sides of the conflict and the happenings with the excitement and drama of a novel. Very is one is definitely for a history buff’s bookshelf. Hopefully more will follow. My HS History Class gives it 5-Stars.

    An interesting, but mostly ignored, US war, most people have only ever heard of the War of Fresh Orleans, but so much more happened. The need for a standing professional Troops and Navy being one of the most necessary side effects, as well as the end of Native American power on the continent, though they fought for nearly a century longer. A financial loss for both nations, and showcase for incompetent US military leaders, and the fiery loss of the U.S. capital, the Battle of 1812 had as a lot of negative effects, if not more, than positive effects. Amazing info as always, check it out.

    I really didn't understand much about the Battle of 1812. I actually found this book to be really interesting because of all the info that I learned while reading this book. I understand now why this battle was the least understood. Another amazing book by Captivating History and I wholeheartedly recommend reading this book.

    The Battle of 1812 was more than what the song lead one to believe. Where America thought it was strong, in ground defense, it was weak. Where it thought it was weak, in the Naval defense, they were surprisingly strong. The book gave a lot of insight to the "short" war.

    In this book we see all of the happenings that led up to this war. This battle to me is one of the least understood battles in American History .But,, Captivating’ History does a remarkable job in presently material that can be researched further !!!

    The Things Our Fathers Saw-The Untold Stories of the World War II Generation-Volume II: War in the Air-From the Great Depression to Combat review [Book]  2017-10-14 18:9

    This series of books tells it as it was through the eyes of the men themselves, no glossing up, but in their own words. This is necessary to me because in this method the real history, the pure history, is preserved without bias. None of these guys will claim to be a character even though they overcame fear not just once but every day, and witnessed horrors and suffered losses that no man should . That is real heroism. They did this, mind you, so that we, the unborn generations could live in a prosperous and peaceful world, not for medals or private recognition. I salute them all, living and gone.

    The narratives were genuine. Often, they were difficult to read because the sentences were poorly structured. I have problem with ex officers using not good language but I also understand that these men were quite elderly. All in all a amazing read of actual first person history.

    Amazing book! My Dad served in Europe during WWII, U.S. Troops Infantry. Like so a lot of others, he never talked about his experiences. I have some old photos, but his Troops records were destroyed in the fire at the records center in 1972. We tend to forget that The Greatest Generation were just every day Americans who responded to their nation's call to fight. Some were good, some bad, some rebellious, but they served and did their part with the goal of not letting their mates down in the heat of battle. Thank you Mr. Rozelle, for preserving this history and I am looking forward to your next book.

    I have to thank the author for this book, and the previous book about the Pacific War. Getting to know the individuals and they're private stories, experiences, and training they went through was very interesting and gratifying for me, I had family that served in WW2 but never knew they're stories, a lot of vets do not want to remember those days of they're lives. The stories in these books have provided glimpses into the lives of the WW2 veterans and only served to strengthen my respect and love for them, all Americans should take the time to know them and increase they're knowledge of The Greatest Generation.

    Thank you for creating this anthology. My father would never talk about his battle experiences. All he would ever say was that he had to do things he thought he'd never have to do. He kept his horrors of battle to himself all his life. This book tells his story through the voices of his contemporaries who were brave enough to relive their amazing times as well as the horrors they endured during Globe Battle OK.

This is necessary to me because in this method the real history, the pure history, is preserved without bias. None of these guys will claim to be a character even though they overcame fear not just once but every day, and witnessed horrors and suffered losses that no man should . That is real heroism. They did this, mind you, so that we, the unborn generations could live in a prosperous and peaceful world, not for medals or private recognition. I salute them all, living and gone.

    Our country owes a debt of gratitude to this author & his pupils participating in this project facilitating the recording of the private stories of our WWII vets. These books should be needed reading for every kid attending public school in the USA

    The narratives were genuine. Often, they were difficult to read because the sentences were poorly structured. I have problem with ex officers using not good language but I also understand that these men were quite elderly. All in all a amazing read of actual first person history.

    I like the method Rozell organizes his books...... his narrative mixed in with interviews of the people involved.

    Amazing book! My Dad served in Europe during WWII, U.S. Troops Infantry. Like so a lot of others, he never talked about his experiences. I have some old photos, but his Troops records were destroyed in the fire at the records center in 1972. We tend to forget that The Greatest Generation were just every day Americans who responded to their nation's call to fight. Some were good, some bad, some rebellious, but they served and did their part with the goal of not letting their mates down in the heat of battle. Thank you Mr. Rozelle, for preserving this history and I am looking forward to your next book.

    I have to thank the author for this book, and the previous book about the Pacific War. Getting to know the individuals and they're private stories, experiences, and training they went through was very interesting and gratifying for me, I had family that served in WW2 but never knew they're stories, a lot of vets do not want to remember those days of they're lives. The stories in these books have provided glimpses into the lives of the WW2 veterans and only served to strengthen my respect and love for them, all Americans should take the time to know them and increase they're knowledge of The Greatest Generation.

    Thank you for creating this anthology. My father would never talk about his battle experiences. All he would ever say was that he had to do things he thought he'd never have to do. He kept his horrors of battle to himself all his life. This book tells his story through the voices of his contemporaries who were brave enough to relive their amazing times as well as the horrors they endured during Globe Battle OK.
