History & Military
by Diane OlsenIn order to enjoy this book, you may have to suspend current beliefs, since some of the concepts may seem quite foreign at first. What if monotheism always existed, and revelations were given to all human forms. There are hints to that effect. We should not assume primitive peoples weren't smart enough to grasp the concept of a single Creator! Too often we tweak religion to reflect our personal thoughts rather than dealing directly with the Word of God. Monotheism, today is represented b... more
by Warren RobinsonThe book is an eyewitness account of the ordinary soldier's experience fighting a determined enemy in a hostile environment far from home while being dishonored and disrespected in his own country. This was a war none of these brave young men wished to fight, but they learned to love and rely on each other in a way known only to the combat veteran. No one could have imagined these seemingly boyish kids could be motivated to the heights of courage and valor for no other reason than to come to t... more

by Abraham RabinovichIn the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Syrian and Egyptian fleets, deploying ships provided them by the Soviet Union, engaged Israel in the first-ever missile-to-missile battles at sea. Although the Soviet missiles had twice the range of Israel's, the Israeli boats destroyed virtually every Arab vessel engaged without suffering a loss, using electronic counter-measures to baffle the radar of incoming missiles. These battles would revolutionize naval warfare worldwide. The book also describes how the ... more
by Paul W. PapaNear the end of World War II and only weeks before the start of the Cold War, a wild palomino stallion was captured and photographed in the Red Desert of Wyoming.

Along the way, the ... more

by Joseph H. WycoffHigher education--as an organized discipline or field of study--is a relatively recent invention in the history of colleges and universities. Historians trace the origins of the modern university to the medieval era in Europe about 1,000 years ago. By comparison, the first academic studies of higher education as an institutional or cultural phenomenon are much more recent: late 1950s America. Honors of Inequality is a critical history of higher education as a field of study that reveals the ide... more

These Kansas teens helped crack open Polish/Jewish dialogue about the Holocaust and th... more

by Donald FraserOur identity as one nation is fragile today, much as it was when the Civil War erupted in 1861. Lincoln, in closing his first inaugural address, warned: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.” But too often in our time, we view those we disagree with as enemies, as members of a different nation. \tThat was the challenge our ancestors faced too, and they allowed their differences to devolve into a civil war. Perhaps that struggle was inevitable, since the overriding moral issu... more
