  • Orphans Of Versaillesby Richard Blanke

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The lands Germany ceded to Poland after World War I included more than one million ethnic Germans for whom the change meant a sharp reversal of roles. The Polish government now confronted a German minority in a region where power relationships had been the other way around for more than a century. Orphans of Versailles examines the complex psychological... more...

  • Draftee Divisionby John Sloan Brown

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The involuntary soldiers of an unmilitary people such were the forces that American military planners had to pit against hardened Axis veterans, yet prewar unpreparedness dictated that whole divisions of such men would go to war under the supervision of tiny professional cadres. Much to his surprise and delight, Army Chief of Staff General George... more...

  • Ambrose Bierce is Missingby Joe Nickell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    What constitutes historical truth is often subject to change. Through ingenious detection, the accepted wisdom of one generation may become the discredited legend of another -- or vice versa. In this wide- ranging study of historical investigation, former detective Joe Nickell allows the reader to look over his shoulder as he demonstrates the use... more...

  • Archives of Memoryby Alice M. Hoffman; Howard S. Hoffman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    "Tell me about the war" -- these words launched a ten-year project in oral history by a husband-and-wife team. Howard Hoffman fought in World War II from Cassino to the Elbe as a mortar crewman and a forward observer. His war experiences are of intrinsic interest to readers who seek a foot soldier's view of those historic events. But the principal... more...

  • Sense Of Placeby Barbara Allen; Thomas J. Schelereth

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 25.00

    Despite the homogenization of American life, areas of strong regional consciousness still persist in the United States, and there is a growing interest in regionalism among the public and among academics. In response to that interest ten folklorists here describe and interpret a variety of American regional cultures in the twentieth century. Their... more...

  • The Star-Spangled Screenby Bernard F. Dick

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The American World War II film depicted a united America, a mythic America in which the average guy, the girl next door, the 4-F patriot, and the grieving mother were suddenly transformed into heroes and heroines, warriors and goddesses. The Star-Spangled Screen examines the historical accuracy -- or lack thereof -- of films about the Third Reich,... more...

  • The Terezin Diary of Gonda Redlichby Saul S. Friedman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In 1941, the fortress city of Terezin, outside Prague, was ostensibly converted into model ghetto, where Jews could temporarily reside before being sent to a more permanent settlement. In reality it was a way station to Auschwitz. When young Gonda Redlich was deported to Terezin in December of 1941, the elders selected him to be in charge of the youth... more...

  • The Lineby William T. Bowers

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 50.00

    The opening months of 1951 comprised the first winter of the Korean War, and the fighting was as intense as the weather. In The Line: Combat in Korea, January-February 1951 , William T. Bowers analyzes this significant period and its effects on the remainder of the war. The Line is the first of three volumes about the Korean War that focus on combat... more...

  • The Korean Warby Stanley Sandler

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The Korean War has been termed "The Forgotten War" or the "Unknown War." It is a conflict which never assumed the mythic character of the American Civil War or World War II. However, this book asserts, it would be impossible to understand the Cold War and indeed post 1945 global history without knowledge of the Korean War. Providing a history of... more...
