Détails: Douglas S. Freeman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning four-volume study on Robert E. Lee remains the most thorough history of the man. After spending so many years with his subject, Freeman claimed he knew where Lee was every day of his life, from West Point until his death. In fact, there are many gaps in Freeman’s Lee, and hundreds of sources have been discovered in the decades since that have changed many of the accepted “facts” about the general. In From Arlington to Appomattox: Robert E. Lee’s Civil War, Day by Day, 1861-1865 author Charles Knight does for Lee and students of the war what E. B. Long’s Civil War Day by Day did for our ability to understand the conflict as a whole. This is not another Lee biography, but it is every bit as valuable as one, and perhaps more so. Lost in all of the military histories of the war, and even in most of the Lee biographies, is what the general was doing when he was out of history’s “public” eye. We know Lee rode out to meet the survivors of Pickett’s Charge and accept blame for the defeat, that he tried to lead the Texas Brigade in a counterattack to save the day at the Wilderness, and took a tearful ride from Wilmer McLean’s house at Appomattox. But what of the other days? Where was Lee and what was he doing when the spotlight of history failed to illuminate him? Focusing on where he was, who he was with, and what he was doing day by day offers an entirely different appreciation for Lee. Readers will come away with a fresh sense of his struggles, both personal and professional, and discover many things about Lee for the first time using his own correspondence and papers from his family, his staff, his lieutenants, and the men of his army. General Lee intended to write a history of the Army of Northern Virginia but died before he could complete his work. Based on hundreds of first-person accounts, From Arlington to Appomattox recreates, as far as such a thing is now possible, a Lee-centric study of what the man experienced on a daily basis. It is a tremendous contribution to the literature of the Civil War.

Détails: "While I wish to do what is right, I am unwilling to do what is wrong, either at the bidding of the South or the North. One of their plans seems to be the renewal of the slave trade. That I am opposed to on every ground. I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than a dissolution of the Union." From his early career through his time as President of Washington College, here is Robert E. Lee in his own words. Compiled by Reverend J. William Jones, who served with Lee in the Civil War and as chaplain of Washington College, the letters are combined with a narrative that places them in time and context. One of the striking characteristics of Lee is his great warmth and affection for his children. This courtly and aristocratic man was openly loving in his letters to them. Included are letters written from participation in the capture of John Brown, the Mexican War, Gettysburg, his speculations on Grant's moves, directions to other generals as the war is being lost, the surrender, and his life after the war. For the first time, this lovely volume is available in an affordable, well-formatted Kindle book. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.

Détails: Shortly after graduating high school in l969 Dian Jennings mother dies unexpectedly and her father commits suicide moments later. She is suddenly all alone. The suicide note directs her to sell the house to the bank manager for $75,000. Her father had conned him into believing that there was buried gold in the basement. Later, with the help of friends, Dian is busy decorating her new apartment just 20 miles down the Hudson in New York City. From her ground floor window, her studio is clearly visible and after some weeks, draws the attention of an art dealer. Plans are made for a Spring showing. She works feverishly to meet the deadline, working temp jobs and creating a whole new group of friends among whom is an older Persian man Momar, or Mo. Mos charms evaporate when suddenly his behavior turns bizarre and he becomes her stalker. A truce is set to free her for the Holidays and she agrees to meet Mo the day after New Years her birthday. The cab that Mo sends heads for Idlewild Airport and she is taken kicking and screaming aboard a private jet where she see five men and one woman in Persian attire. Oh, oh. A beautiful woman named Jasara reassures Dian that she is in the hands of Friends a covert international group of good guys. Jasara shows Dian a friendship ring like her own, the emblem only showing palmside. She is instructed to trust no one who does not display the emblem. Landing in Tehran, Dian is paraded before mobs of fanatics and false documents are produced to show her identity as an infamous Jewish journalist Debra Stern. She is depicted as a Western degenerate who spreads scurrilous lies about Hesbolah, Elfatah and other such sacrosanct entities. As she tours the country, she is reviled. Interrogated by a half dozen abusive men, one good-looking young man Moustafa is particularly offensive. Back in her locked room with a frightening portrait of the Ayotallah, she is visited late at night by a would-be savior. She repulses his groping and crowns him with the portrait off the wall and finishes him off with a chamber pot. Immediately, another official bursts in demanding to know what is going on. Dian explains and the old man is circumspect. As the culprit stirs the old man lays him out, clutching his chest as he drags the unconscious man out the door. Next day, police charge her with double homocide and she is removed to new digs a dorm in an empty school. She scrounges around and makes a concoction that burns out the staring eyes of yet another even larger portrait. Her new keeper is a suspicious old crone and when she sees the desecration, she runs out screaming. A timid young man named Mohammed tells her the old lady claims to have seen her cast a spell on the portrait and she escaped. Now, the real A wants to see her. Mohammed conscientiously translates for her at the conference all terrorist organizations. Her appearance creates a furor and she is actually shoved before the A and proceeds to tell him off. The audience becomes an excited unruly mob. Amidst the excitement, Dian puffs her bottle of body powder. Screams of Poison and she is grabbed and dragged offstage through the crowd, Mohammed in tow. Captors or rescuers? She is pulled unceremoniously behind a man who shows the ring but not his face. No matter. The trio escapes in an old Jeep. Sleep. She awakes screaming starvation and the Jeep stops and the driver comes to her, his face still obscured by his headdress. Then he pulls her close and kisses her. Shock! Moustafa! Oh, no. Mohammed says he seized the opportunity to throw off the tyranny of his repressive regime for Friends. They are overtaken by men on horseback who lead them away to a fabulous tent city. Desert thieves? No, just a huge group of Friends. Their leader, the Sultan, is a complex and charismatic man. He explains to all that a ridin

Détails: This book aims to give the world the life of George Armstrong Custer, one of the few really great men that America has produced. Beginning at the foot of the social ladder, he rose to the top rapidly and phenomenally. Much of Custer's success has been attributed to good fortune, while it was really the result of a wonderful capacity for hard and energetic work, and a rapidity of intuition which is seldom found apart from military genius of the highest order.

Détails: The Great War between the Northern and Southern States of America possesses a peculiar interest for us, not only because it was a struggle between two sections of a people akin to us in race and language, but because of the heroic courage with which the weaker party, with ill-fed, ill-clad, ill-equipped regiments, for four years sustained the contest with an adversary not only possessed of immense numerical superiority, but having the command of the sea, and being able to draw its arms and munitions of war from all the manufactories of Europe. Authorities still differ as to the rights of the case. The Confederates firmly believed that the States having voluntarily united, retained the right of withdrawing from the Union when they considered it for their advantage to do so. The Northerners took the opposite point of view, and an appeal to arms became inevitable. During the first two years of the war the struggle was conducted without inflicting unnecessary hardship upon the general population. But later on the character of the war changed, and the Federal armies carried wide-spread destruction wherever they marched. Upon the other hand, the moment the struggle was over the conduct of the conquerors was marked by a clemency and generosity altogether unexampled in history, a complete amnesty being granted, and none, whether soldiers or civilians, being made to suffer for their share in the rebellion. The credit of this magnanimous conduct was to a great extent due to Generals Grant and Sherman, the former of whom took upon himself the responsibility of granting terms which, although they were finally ratified by his government, were at the time received with anger and indignation in the North. It was impossible, in the course of a single volume, to give even a sketch of the numerous and complicated operations of the war, and I have therefore confined myself to the central point of the great struggle--the attempts of the Northern armies to force their way to Richmond, the capital of Virginia and the heart of the Confederacy. Even in recounting the leading events in these campaigns, I have burdened my story with as few details as possible, it being my object now, as always, to amuse as well as to give instruction in the facts of history.

Détails: “A valuable reexamination” (Booklist, starred review) of the event that changed twentieth-century America—Pearl Harbor—based on years of research and new information uncovered by a New York Times bestselling author. The America we live in today was born, not on July 4, 1776, but on December 7, 1941, when an armada of 354 Japanese warplanes supported by aircraft carriers, destroyers, and midget submarines suddenly and savagely attacked the United States, killing 2,403 men—and forced America’s entry into World War II. Pearl Harbor: From Infamy to Greatness follows the sailors, soldiers, pilots, diplomats, admirals, generals, emperor, and president as they engineer, fight, and react to this stunningly dramatic moment in world history. Beginning in 1914, bestselling author Craig Nelson maps the road to war, when Franklin D. Roosevelt, then the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, attended the laying of the keel of the USS Arizona at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Writing with vivid intimacy, Nelson traces Japan’s leaders as they lurch into ultranationalist fascism, which culminates in their scheme to terrify America with one of the boldest attacks ever waged. Within seconds, the country would never be the same. Backed by a research team’s five years of work, as well as Nelson’s thorough re-examination of the original evidence assembled by federal investigators, this page-turning and definitive work “weaves archival research, interviews, and personal experiences from both sides into a blow-by-blow narrative of destruction liberally sprinkled with individual heroism, bizarre escapes, and equally bizarre tragedies” (Kirkus Reviews). Nelson delivers all the terror, chaos, violence, tragedy, and heroism of the attack in stunning detail, and offers surprising conclusions about the tragedy’s unforeseen and resonant consequences that linger even today.

Détails: A historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her. Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.
