Exposure to a First World War blistering agent. (1/19)

Sulfur mustards act as vesicants and alkylating agents. They have been used as chemical warfare since 1917 during the first world war. This brief report illustrates the progression of injury on a primary exposed patient to a first world war blistering agent. This case documents the rapid timeline and progression of symptoms. It emphasises the importance of appropriate personal protective equipment and immediate medical response plan with rapid decontamination and proper action from military and civilian medical treatment facilities. This case reports the first US active duty military exposure to a blistering agent in the age of global terrorism.  (+info)

Redefining cancer during the interwar period: British medical officers of health, state policy, managerialism, and public health. (2/19)

The implementation of radiation technologies within the British hospital system was a significant element in the establishment of the managerial organization of medicine in the interwar period. One aspect of this implementation process was that, in order to install cancer patients within the "radiotherapy factory," British medical officers of health adapted their organizational cultures from being environmentalists to being administrators of medical services. One of the consequences of this change was the accomplishment of a much more reductive approach to cancer compared with a more holistic approach to the disease.  (+info)

Teamwork, clinical research, and the development of scientific medicines in interwar Britain: the "Glasgow School" revisited. (3/19)

This article argues that historians of medicine have, until very recently, misinterpreted the relationship of "science" and "the clinic" in the early twentieth century. It follows recent historiographic developments in focusing on the relationship in practice as exemplified by the development of a specific variety of collaborative clinical research using laboratory methods, ca. 1919-37, in a major British medical school. It suggests that it is such working hybrids that should be studied in order to understand fully the development of scientific medicines in the United Kingdom in this period. In Glasgow, it was the local medical culture's characteristic local subservience to clinical priorities that facilitated, in a particular kind of academic unit, a certain type of hierarchical teamwork between clinicians and laboratory workers; the paper reveals how and why this teamwork became, over time, more of an equal partnership.  (+info)

Big and tall soldiers are more likely to survive battle: a possible explanation for the 'returning soldier effect' on the secondary sex ratio. (4/19)

BACKGROUND: It is widely known that more boys are born during and immediately after wars, but there has not been any ultimate (evolutionary) explanation for this 'returning soldier effect'. Here, I suggest that the higher sex ratios during and immediately after wars might be a byproduct of the fact that taller soldiers are more likely to survive battle and that taller parents are more likely to have sons. METHODS: I analyze a large sample of British Army service records during World War I. RESULTS: Surviving soldiers were on average more than one inch (3.33 cm) taller than fallen soldiers. CONCLUSIONS: Conservative estimates suggest that the one-inch height advantage alone is more than twice as sufficient to account for all the excess boys born in the UK during and after World War I. While it remains unclear why taller soldiers are more likely to survive battle, I predict that the returning soldier effect will not happen in more recent and future wars.  (+info)

Enduring beliefs about effects of gassing in war: qualitative study. (5/19)

OBJECTIVES: To discover the content of enduring beliefs held by first world war veterans about their experience of having been gassed. DESIGN: Collection and thematic analysis of written and reported statements from a sample of veterans about gassing. SUBJECTS: 103 veterans with a war pension. RESULTS: Twelve themes were identified, which were related to individual statements. The systemic nature of chemical weapons played a key part in ideas and beliefs about their capacity to cause enduring harm to health. Unlike shrapnel or a bullet that had a defined physical presence, gas had unseen effects within the body, while its capacity to cause damage was apparent from vesicant effects to skin and eyes. The terror inspired by chemical weapons also served to maintain memories of being gassed, while anti-gas measures were themselves disconcerting or a source of discomfort. CONCLUSIONS: Chronic symptoms and work difficulties maintained beliefs about the potency of chemical weapons. In the period after the war, gas continued to inspire popular revulsion and was associated with a sense of unfairness.  (+info)

Introduction. S6 HISTORY Study on the First World War Sub-topics: Results of World War One Q: How did the First World War affect the world? A: The First World War was the most destructive war in the history of mankind. It mobilized all the resources of the combatant countries. Nearly all European countries joined the war. The First World War started in 1914 and ended in 1918. The war lasted for 4 years and caused total destruction of the world. It affected the political, economic, social, cultural, and military development of the world in the following decades. There was little political stability in Europe after 1918. The end of the war incited revolutions everywhere. The 1917 Russian Revolution was an example. Those revolutions brought an end to absolution in Europe. The great dynasties of Romanov of Russia and Hohenzollern of Germany had collapsed. Moreover, the war brought an end to the Hapsburg Empire and Turkish Empire.The collapsed empires was replaced by new forms of government, for ...

Puerto Ricans and people of Puerto Rican descent have participated as members of the United States Armed Forces in every conflict in which the United States has been involved since World War I. One of the consequences of the Spanish-American War was that Puerto Rico was annexed by the United States in accordance with the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, ratified on December 10, 1898. On January 15, 1899, the military government changed the name of Puerto Rico to Porto Rico (On May 17, 1932, the U.S. Congress changed the name back to Puerto Rico). On March 21, 1915, the first shots by the United States in World War I were fired by the Porto Rico Regiment of Infantry from El Morro Castle at a German ship in San Juan Bay. U.S. Citizenship was imposed upon Puerto Ricans as a result of the 1917 Jones-Shafroth Act (the Puerto Rican House of Delegates rejected US citizenship) and were expected to serve in the military. Puerto Ricans who resided in the island were assigned to the Porto Rico ...
Austria-Hungary, with unconditional support and perhaps even prodding from Germany, seized on Archduke Ferdinands assassination to attack Serbia, activating a complex system of military alliances that would pit the Allies, led Britain, France and Russia, against the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary.. When the dust settled, World War I gave rise to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, which was renamed Yugoslavia in 1929. However, this Balkan tinderbox of nationalist and sectarian passions that sparked World War I would reignite in 1992 with Yugoslavias collapse. Three years of fierce fighting led to the eventual establishment of seven independent states including todays Bosnia and Herzegovina, which itself comprises two distinct political entities drawn up along ethnic lines.. Those ethnic faultlines still pulsate with centuries of hostility and resentment between the mainly Orthodox Christian Serbs, the predominately Catholic Croats and Muslim Bosniaks - a prism that ...

Ottawa, Ontario, November 2, 2016 - The medal set and the memorial plaque in honour of Private George Lawrence Price, the last Canadian soldier killed during the First World War, have been donated to the Canadian War Museum. Private Price died at 10:58 a.m. on November 11, 1918 - two minutes before the armistice went into effect.. The cost of the First World War in terms of human lives was overwhelming, said Stephen Quick, Director General of the Canadian War Museum. One of the more poignant moments is the loss of Private Price mere minutes before the guns fell silent.. Born in Falmouth, Nova Scotia, Private Price was a 24 year-old farm labourer in Saskatchewan when he was conscripted into military service. After training in Canada, he was sent to Bramshott Military Camp in England and eventually assigned to the 28th Battalion. Two months before his death, Private Price survived a gas attack at the battle to cross the Canal du Nord in France.. There are several conflicting stories of Private ...
The Herrenhausen Symposium The Long End of the First World War: Ruptures, Continuities and Memories, which took place at Herrenhausen Palace in Hanover, questioned the idea of a static and clearly defined end of the War.[1] During their introductory remarks ANDREAS GESTRICH (London) and KATRIN BROMBER (Berlin) challenged the mainly Eurocentric periodization of the War, starting in June 1914 and ending at the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, by stressing the need to globalize not only the beginning of the War but also its end. Therefore, the conference aimed to examine the conflicts end from the perspective of colonial actors, non-European areas and socially diverse groups. The long-term effects of the end of the War were examined in themes as diverse as (anti-)imperialism, social movements, economic and ecological developments. A fascinating aspect of the conference was its effort to bring research, historiography and commemoration of the First World War together and to discuss the ...

In the early 20th century, a German doctor by the name of Alfred Nissle became interested in the idea of using harmless E. coli strains hanging out in our intestines as a sort of living drug to inhibit the growth of other bacteria (e.g. Salmonella) responsible for intestine-based diseases. In 1917, with World War I still raging throughout Europe, Nissle came across a young solider who had been fighting in the Balkan peninsula. This particular soldier was notable for not having fallen ill with bacterial dysentery, which otherwise spread like wildfire among the troops in the region of Dobrudja where he was stationed for a time. Nissle was all like, this dude must have some sort of awesome protective E. coli in his gut. Low and behold, he isolated EcN from the soldiers poop ...
Belgium - Belgium and World War I: As international tensions heightened during the summer of 1914, Germany made plans to besiege France by crossing Luxembourg and Belgium, despite their neutrality. The two countries refused free passage to the German troops and were invaded on August 2 and August 4, respectively. The Belgian army retired behind the Yser (IJzer) River in the west of Flanders and held this position until 1918. During the war, the Belgian government sat at Le Havre, France, while King Albert I, as commander in chief of the army, remained with his troops in unoccupied Belgium. In 1916 the Belgian Catholic Party government was

Special Exhibit from the National Archives Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I Showing April 6 - May 26, 2019 On April 6, 2019, the Mendocino County Museum will also open a new special exhibition from the National Archives, Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I. Because World War I was total war, the American home front was especially important to victory. Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I draws on the unparalleled holdings of the National Archives to capture the patriotic fervor of draft registration, the emotional good-byes of men leaving for training camps, the hoopla of Liberty Loan drives, the craze for volunteerism, and the violence of vigilantism. This exhibit runs through May 26, 2019. Over Here is divided into three themes: Mobilizing the Nation - Modern warfare demanded not just soldiers on the front lines, pilots in the sky, and sailors on the high seas but guns, ships, and crops from Americas factories, shipyards, and fields. Stirring Patriotic Passions - ...
Are the costs of discrimination mainly borne by the targeted group or by society? This paper examines both individual and aggregate costs of ethnic discrimination. Studying Germans living in the U.S. during World War I, an event that abruptly downgraded their previously high social standing, we propose a novel measure of local anti-German sentiment based on war casualties. We show that Germans disproportionally fled counties with high casualty rates and that those counties saw more anti-German slurs reported in newspapers. German movers had worse occupational outcomes after the war but also the discriminating communities paid a substantial cost. Counties with larger outflows of Germans, who pre-war tended to be well-trained manufacturing workers, saw a drop in average annual manufacturing wages of 1-7% which persisted until 1940. Thus, for discriminating communities, a few years of intense anti-German sentiment were reflected in worse economic outcomes that lasted for more than a decade. You may ...

The horrors of the Western Front as well as Gallipoli and Mesopotamia were seared into the collective consciousness of the twentieth century. To a large extent the understanding of the war in popular culture focused on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Historian A. J. P. Taylor argued, The Somme set the picture by which future generations saw the First World War: brave helpless soldiers; blundering obstinate generals; nothing achieved.[178]. Images of trench warfare became iconic symbols of human suffering and endurance. The post-war world had many veterans who were maimed or damaged by shell shock. In 1921 1,187,450 men were in receipt of pensions for war disabilities, with a fifth of these having suffered serious loss of limbs or eyesight, paralysis or lunacy.[179]. The war was a major economic catastrophe as Britain went from being the worlds largest overseas investor to being its biggest debtor, with interest payments consuming around 40 percent of the national budget.[180] ...
The extent to which the First World War represented a significant turning point in history remains a controversial question for historians. To contemporaries, the war was a cataclysm of unimaginable proportions: the first calamity of our century . . . from which all other calamities sprang (Stern 199; Fromkin 6). Those who fought in the war and returned from it, as well as the lost generation of postwar writers and poets, helped to create what Samuel Hynes has referred to as the myth of the Great War, the idea that it represented a sharp break not only in their own lives but also in the history of the world. Men and women after the war, wrote Hynes, looked back at their own pasts as one might look across a great chasm to a remote, peaceable place on the other side (ix). While historians views vary, they have tended to become increasingly skeptical of the myth, particularly with respect to the wars presumed impact on culture and society.

The United States chemical weapons program began in 1917 during World War I with the creation of the U.S. Armys Gas Service Section and ended 73 years later in 1990 with the countrys practical adoption of the Chemical Weapons Convention (signed 1993; entered into force, 1997). Destruction of stockpiled chemical weapons began in 1985 and is still ongoing. The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD), at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, continues to operate. The U.S. had participated in the formulations of the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907 which banned chemical warfare, among other things, but the U.S. never joined the article which prohibited chemical weapons. In World War I, the U.S. established its own chemical weapons research facility and produced its own chemical munitions. It produced 5,770 metric tons of these weapons, including 1,400 metric tons of phosgene and 175 metric tons of mustard gas. This was about 4% of the total chemical weapons produced for ...

The agency became the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 1863. Its emblem was a red cross on a white background, the inverse of the Swiss flag. A year later the first Geneva Convention was adopted initially by 12 nations, codifying acceptable treatment of sick and wounded soldiers. Dunant was awarded the first Nobel Peace Prize in 1901 for these accomplishments.. The ICRC encouraged the creation of national Red Cross societies, today known as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. These organizations were independent from the ICRC, which acted as a liaison between the societies. During World War I the ICRC expanded from ten employees to over 3,000 and organized itself into national bureaus for each combatant nation.. Red Cross efforts were invaluable during World War I. The ICRC stablished the International Prisoners-of-War Agency that was responsible for arranging the exchange of over 200,000 POWs, gathering records on millions of prisoners, and ...

Natural News) One hundred years ago, America fought in World War I, and statistics afterward horrified the world, revealing 17 million people dead or missing in action. Industrial chemists played a major role in developing poisonous and deadly biological weapons of mass destruction when they created mustard gas that was used in the trenches to wipe out soldiers en masse. It turns out that mustard gas can be absorbed through the skin, so the gas masks our soldiers wore were useless. It can take up to two months to die from mustard gas poisoning and its a terrible way to go. The same chemist who invented mustard gas, Fritz Haber, also created an industrial-scale production of ammonia-based fertilizer. World War I was known as the chemists war, but it was just the beginning of a bigger chemical war on mankind, which would soon include poisoning food and medicine. Who knew?. Around the time of WWII, researchers discovered that mustard gas from WWI severely lowered the number of immune cells in the ...
Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is a war crime. By collective punishment, the drafters of the Geneva Conventions had in mind the reprisal killings of World War I and World War II. In the First World War, during the Rape of Belgium, the Germans executed Belgian villagers in mass retribution for resistance activity. In World War II, the Germans carried out a form of collective punishment to suppress resistance. Entire villages or towns or districts were held responsible for any resistance activity that occurred in them.[3] The conventions, to counter this, reiterated the principle of individual responsibility. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Commentary to the conventions states that parties to a conflict often would resort to intimidatory measures to terrorize the population in hopes of preventing hostile acts, but such practices strike at guilty and innocent alike. They are opposed to all principles based on humanity and justice ...
Lee surrendered at Appomattox, ending the Civil War after four years. However, the wars legacy of destruction would leave deep scars. Their vitriol was a ploy, but those powerful Republicans controlled most of the nations newspapers. Reconstruction refers to the period that followed the American Civil War. Typically, historians have treated the Easter Uprising of 1916 as the origin of modern Irish problems and violence, and it could not have happened without the what conditions facilitated by World War I. The Southern economy remained mostly agricultural after the Civil War, but it struggled greatly with the labor transition from slave to paid labor. At the outbreak of what happen after the civil war that effects us the most today World War I, Ireland was part of the UK, but by the end of the war, the Irish what happen after the civil war that effects us the most today had started their own Brexit.

Chemical and Biolgical Warfare (CBW) we now know was a huge danger during the Cold War. Frigtingly deadly agents and strains were developed. Biological warfare (BW), commonly called germ warfare is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) to ill or incapacitate people directky or the animals and plants on which people depend. Chemical Warfare (CW) uses chemicals, commonly called poison gas, to kill. CW was developed by the Germans and first used in World War I. The World War I chemical agents, however, rather primitive. The Germans in the inter-War period begn developing much more deasly nerve agents. The Japanese also had an active program and actually used both biological and chemical agents in china, primarily in China. BW was not used. Thus CBW terrified the public before Wotld War II, but were not given much attention in the public mind during the Cold War. CBW was not new to warfare These weapons had been used such ancient times.

This is a digital index of naturalization records from fold3.com. The cards are arranged alphabetically by surname. The actual naturalization volumes vary in size and format. Prior to 1906, each document was usually handwritten on one page. From the late 1800s and on, printed forms were used. After 1906, many entries were typewritten. While there were various types of naturalization records, the Declaration of Intent and Naturalization Petition usually had the most complete genealogical information. The first naturalization act was passed in 1802. Immigrants to the United States were not required to apply for citizenship. Of those who did apply, many did not complete the requirements for citizenship. Naturalization to become a U.S. citizen was a two-part process: the Declaration of Intent to Naturalize, or First Papers, and the Naturalization Record (including the Naturalization Petition), or Final Papers. The First Papers were normally filed five years before the Final Papers because of the ...

Many organisms similar to Sal. enteritidis were discovered even before the First World War. However, up to and including the period of World War 1, there is no substantial literature on either Salmonella or food poisoning. Scattered reports are available on what were then designated as the paratyphoid fevers. This group consisted of a variety of gastroenteric conditions similar, though not identical, to typhoid fever. It is generally believed that the paratyphoid fevers were by no means a major problem to the United States Army during World War I but what might be more accurately described as a nuisance. During 1916 and 1917, there were sporadic and epidemic occurrences of the disease in United States Army personnel along the Texas-Mexico border and in Mexico itself. Soon after, it was learned that outbreaks were occurring in France among British and French troops. In July 1917, the United States Army incorporated paratyphoid A and paratyphoid B organisms in its regular typhoid vaccine. Table 71 ...
When World War I began on July 28, 1914, no one would have guessed that the war would take 9 million lives and become the fifth bloodiest conflict in world history. The war resulted in major political upheaval in countries around the world. It also unfortunately set the state for World War II, which embroiled over 30 countries, making it the most widespread conflict in the world.The literature of the world wars includes some of the worlds outstanding literature, including poetry,
It will be a hundred years since 1.5 million were massacred in Armenia during clashes with the Turkish forces at the end of the First World War on the 24th of April. Armenians believe the massacre was the first genocide of the 21st century while the Turkey has continuously insisted it was the result of a Civil War as the Ottoman Empire collapsed as a result of World War I.. Find the best Cyber Monday Deals 2017. The fierce dispute still rages between the Turkey and Armenia to this day, in which mostly Muslim Turks and Christian Armenians were killed as victims of war. Recently the Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan held a special ceremony to show respect to those killed in 1915 and stated they will never forget their fallen. Entire cities were decorated with violet and golden banners with symbols of the massacre in English, Armenian and Russian. Some posters spelled out the year 1915 while others demanded everyone to never forget the killings which took place. Armenia neighbours the countries ...

Together with plague, smallpox and typhus, epidemics of dysentery have been a major scourge of human populations for centuries(1). A previous genomic study concluded that Shigella dysenteriae type 1 (Sd1), the epidemic dysentery bacillus, emerged and spread worldwide after the First World War, with no clear pattern of transmission(2). This is not consistent with the massive cyclic dysentery epidemics reported in Europe during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries(1,3,4) and the first isolation of Sd1 in Japan in 1897(5). Here, we report a whole-genome analysis of 331 Sd1 isolates from around the world, collected between 1915 and 2011, providing us with unprecedented insight into the historical spread of this pathogen. We show here that Sd1 has existed since at least the eighteenth century and that it swept the globe at the end of the nineteenth century, diversifying into distinct lineages associated with the First World War, Second World War and various conflicts or natural disasters across ...

Slovakias roots can be traced to the 9th century state of Great Moravia. Subsequently, the Slovaks became part of the Hungarian Kingdom, where they remained for the next 1,000 years. Following the formation of the dual Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1867, language and education policies favoring the use of Hungarian (Magyarization) resulted in a strengthening of Slovak nationalism and a cultivation of cultural ties with the closely related Czechs, who were under Austrian rule. After the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the close of World War I, the Slovaks joined the Czechs to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar period, Slovak nationalist leaders pushed for autonomy within Czechoslovakia, and in 1939 Slovakia became an independent state allied with Nazi Germany. Following World War II, Czechoslovakia was reconstituted and came under communist rule within Soviet-dominated Eastern Europe.

Introduction. How does Sherriffs presentation of Stanhope convey the playwrights anti-war message? Journeys End was written by R.C.Sherriff, and was based on his experiences serving with the East Surrey Regiment during the First World War. The First World War ran from 1914 - 1918. The main sides in this conflict were the Allies and the Germans. On the Western Front, the Germans tried to break through the Allied lines using brute force. When this tactic failed, both sides were stuck in stalemate. This war was mainly fought using trench warfare tactics, whereby both sides were entrenched, and about 60 metres of no mans land existed between each sides trenches. For many young soldiers, this experience in the trenches damaged them both physically and emotionally for life. This is because each soldier had to combat many different perils, as life in the trenches was simply a horror. Each day, the soldiers had to face disease, enemy fire, long periods of silence and boredom, which often lead to ...
Rejoining the Squadrion at Rafa beach in early October 1917, he served until 28 October when he was admitted to hospital for a week, then again to hospital in early November with a corneal ulcer. After some training in Egypt, he didnt return to duty with the Squadron until May 1918, when the Brigade was in Jericho. The Brigade repelled a Turkish attack in mid-July 1918, suffering 21 casualties, the 3rd Regiment alone taking 358 German and 67 Turkish prisoners. After a bout with sandfly fever in August 1918, Alfred rejoined the Squadron in late September 1918, at which point the entire Brigade had been brought to its knees, not by the Turks , but by malaria. In early October 1918, more than 500 men of the Brigade were evacuated with the disease. Alfred was back in hospital himself by late October, and didnt return to the Squadron until May 1919. He embarked for Australia later that month, and was discharged in Adelaide on 26 August 1919, four and a half years after he enlisted ...

This year marks the 100th anniversary of personal income tax being introduced in Parliament as a temporary war tax. While the Constitution Act of 1876 had given Parliament unlimited taxing powers, the federal government avoided charging a personal income tax before the First World War, relying on tariffs and customs income for most of its revenue. The Income War Tax Act met opposition at first-avoiding income taxation had been a government strategy to attract immigrants to this young nation. After the First World War, as the government faced considerable debt, the temporary part of the tax went out the window and personal income tax has remained in place ever since.. One difference between then and now is that in 1917 the amount of money collected from personal income tax comprised 2.6% of federal revenue compared to an expected 51% in 2017. Another difference is that personal income tax is now a tax area where, globally, Canada is least competitive-the very situation that opponents of the ...

Sir Ernest Shackletons third expedition left England Aug 1, 1914, within hours of the outbreak of the first world war. The aim of the expedition was to land along the Weddell Sea and to march across Antarctica via the South Pole to the Ross Sea. After a stop-over in South Georgia, Shackleton managed to reach the Weddell Sea, but the sea ice was far heavier than expected and he failed to find a way through. We now know that the south-east part of the Weddell Sea collects a mass of ice every 3-4 years, as it gyrates clockwise around the sea: Shackleton happened to hit one of those years. After discarding a promising landing site, his ship the Endurance became stuck in February 1915 and froze into the sea ice. Many months of drifting with the ice pack followed. A BBC article shows photographs of this time, bringing the characters vividly to life.. On October 27 the ship finally succumbed to the pressure and was crushed; the wreckage sank on November 21. Shackleton and his crew set up camp on the ...

During World War I and World War II, the military was actively developing methods to take photographs from airplanes. Aerial photography has been a very useful surveillance method that is relatively safe for personnel. The military developed cameras that were specially designed for aerial imaging over large areas. They also developed special films that were sensitive to infrared light (wavelengths just beyond the range of human sight). During World War II, the military developed camouflage film, also known as color infrared film. This is a color film where green things appear blue, red things appear green, and things that reflect infrared light appear red. With this film, vegetation has a characteristic bright red appearance. Camouflage does not reflect infrared light as well as natural vegetation so it appears blue in color infrared film. During World War II, many soldiers were exposed to this technology. After returning home, they developed many uses for it in agriculture. When camouflage film ...

Such understanding helps shape the way we view the present conception of music therapy with veterans and how we might answer questions that will affect the future of the field. ...
6/12/2006 • Gear, World War II The full contribution of intelligence to the winning of World War II is clear only now, nearly sixty years after that conflict. Over the intervening decades it has been discovered that throughout the war the intelligence services of the Western powers (particularly the British) intercepted, broke, and read significant portions of the German militarys top-secret message traffic. That cryptographic intelligence, disseminated to Allied commanders under the code name Ultra, played a significant role in the effort to defeat the Germans and achieve an Allied victory.. The breaking of the high-level German codes began with the efforts of the Polish secret service in the interwar period. By creating a copy of the basic German enciphering machine, the Poles managed to read German signal traffic throughout the 1930s with varying degrees of success. However, shortly before the Munich conference in September 1938, the Germans made alterations to their enciphering ...
Grandpa told us about his oldest brother - they called him C.F. - who was an Infantryman that stormed Normandys beaches on D-Day. His brother Byron drove a tank through Italy, France, and Germany before almost being sent to Okinawa after the war in Europe had ended. Against all odds, they somehow stumbled across each other during the war. Bryon was sitting on his tank as C.F. walked by with his unit; they were shocked at the sight of each other and took a moment to shower each other with questions before saying their good-byes and good lucks. That story stayed with me for a long time. And then there was grandpas brother-in-law, Curtis. He rode on horseback behind enemy lines to establish communication lines in France during the war.. My grandpa spoke briefly but highly of his father-in-law - my great-grandfather, saying he served in World War I as an artilleryman. He struggled with shell shock; we call that PTSD these days. Hes standing next to an artillery cannon in France in the only ...
This pamphlet was distributed by the Ohio Fuel Gas Company (a subsidiary of Columbia Gas Company) during World War II. The pamphlet includes information on canning methods for vegetables and meats and advice on drying and freezing foods. It is 15 pages and measures 9 x 6 (22.86 x 15.24 cm). During World War II (1941-1945), many people supplemented the food they had available for personal use by planting vegetable gardens, both to support the war effort and due to food shortages and rationing. The gardens were promoted widely by the government and industry, and were known as victory gardens due to their importance to the war effort. Gardens were planted during World War I as well, but were called war gardens until the end of the war, when the term victory garden came into use ...
According to Generations by (the late) William Strauss and Neil Howe, an important factor was the concurrent birth of the so-called World War II generation (1901-1924). Elders of their day, in connection with the new century, wanted to create a better nourished, protected, (and educated) group of children than what they themselves were, using the latest nutritional technology discovered in the 1890s. The result was that this generation grew nearly an inch taller (on average) than their parents, giving them a height advantage over the Nazis (and Japanese) in World War II. This concern, in turn, had been stoked by Americas fear of war stemming from World War I..

Downloadable! This paper presents insights on U.S. business cycle volatility since 1867 de- rived from diffusion indices. We employ a Bayesian dynamic factor model to obtain aggregate and sectoral economic activity indices. We find a remarkable increase in volatility across World War I, which is reversed after World War II. While we can generate evidence of postwar moderation relative to pre-1914, this evidence is not robust to structural change, implemented by time-varying factor loadings. We do find evidence of moderation in the nominal series, however, and reproduce the standard result of moderation since the 1980s. Our estimates broadly confirm the NBER historical business cycle chronology as well the National Income and Product Accounts, except for World War II where they support alternative estimates of Kuznets (1952).
