Download or read book Gone for a Sojer Boy written by Neal E. Wixson and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2011-01-01 with total page 324 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Gone for a Sojer Boy is a companion book to Echoes from the Boys of Company H and is based upon hundreds of letters from a few Civil War soldiers of Company H, 100th Regiment, New York State Volunteers. They provide rare insight into the life and thoughts of common solders. This volume explores the changes the boys experienced during their time of service. Both camp life and battles are reviewed and serve to trace and explain the evolution of their opinions about important aspects of a soldiers life: namely, death, politics, and religion. These young men were ordinary human beings who were rendered extraordinary by their experience. This rich collection of Civil War letters presents a colorful, illuminating portrait of common soldiers serving their country. Edward Longacre, author of more than 20 books on the Civil War I found this remarkable book to be a fascinating and unique telling of a soldiers story. The exhaustive work and research done by Neal Wixson to put letters and diaries together was only matched by his passion to tell of his great-grandfathers war experience. The qualities of work by the author, the unique story of soldiers in their own words, make this a truly superb work of military history. It has my highest endorsement. General Anthony C. Zinni USMC (retired) The letters of soldiers, written to their loved ones at home, reveal in plain, uncluttered language the details of the daily life of the soldier. The voice of the common soldier provides an intimate, personal view that is devoid of the posturing of politicians and officers. Neal Wixson has lovingly edited the letters into a poignant journey through this painful chapter of our nations history. Jeff Toalson, Civil War author and lecturer A great-grandson of Thomas Maharg of Company H, Neal E. Wixson earned a B.A. from Oberlin College and a J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law. He is member of the Williamsburg Civil War Roundtable and the 100th Regiments Veterans Association. He and his wife reside in Virginia.

Download or read book A Soldier and a Woman written by Gerard J.De Groot and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-07-30 with total page 396 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The question of women's role in the military is extremely topical. A Woman and a Soldier covers the experiences of women in the military from the late mediaeval period to the present day. Written in two volumes this comprehensive guide covers a wide range of wars: The Thirty Years War, the French and Indian Wars in Northern America, the Anglo-Boer War, the First and Second World Wars, the Long March in China, and the Vietnam War. There are also thematic chapters, including studies of terrorism and contemporary military service. Taking a multidisciplinary approach: historical, anthropological, and cultural, the book shows the variety of arguments used to support or deny women's military service and the combat taboo. In the process the book challenges preconceived notions about women's integration in the military and builds a picture of the ideological and practical issues surrounding women soldiers.
