Lewis, was vice president of the American Defense Preparedness Association, and as such interacted with the American Ordnance Association. Brigadier General Benedict Crowell, who had served as the Assistant Secretary of War during WWI, realized that there needed to be an approach for involving industry with national defense. In October 1919, he convened a meeting of military officers and leading manufacturers at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland to discuss this deficiency and explore what might be done. The result of this gathering was the establishment of the Army Ordnance Association. The goal of this Association was industrial preparedness, both in peacetime and in times of war. Crowell served as the Chairman of the AOA from 1920 to 1945. In 1948, the Army Ordnance Association changed its name to the American Ordnance Association, reflecting the changes brought about by the establishment of the Department of Defense. At that time, the Association broadened its technical coverage and activities to include manufacturing, emerging technologies, and supply chains for sustainment. On January 1, 1965, the Armed Forces Chemical Association and the American Ordnance Association merged and continued to address their foundational mission under the banner of the American Ordnance Association. In 1973, the name of the Association was changed to American Defense Preparedness Association – the ADPA.

Aldershot: Gale & Polden, Limited, 1938. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xv, , 216 pages. DJ has wear, tears, chips, and soiling. Note inserted at page 7 indicates all maps face north. Half page Corrigenda insert at page 1. Frontis illustration. Maps (some with color, many folding, including large folding map in rear pocket). Footnotes. Chronological Table. Index. Stamps inside front cover and on title page indicate that this copy was for the use of His Majesty's Forces. DJ has wear, soiling, and is price clipped. Explanatory Note. Bibliographical Note. The title of this book was suggested by the fate that three notable books, each written by a military expert, had recently been published in England on Lee, Grant, and Sherman. The author was referring to Robert E. Lee, The Soldier by General Sir Frederick Maurice, Grant and Lee by General J. F. C. Fuller, and Sherman by Captain Liddell Hart. Each general in turn is held up to our admiration, yet obviously all three cannot be equally admired, and it was the aim of this work to try and strike a balance between the rival protagonists. The author cast this study in the form of an outline of events in the campaign of 1864-65, with a commentary at the end of each phase. Sections have been included on the little-studied but strictly relevant and illuminating campaigns of Generals Hood and Early. A Chronological Table was provided at the end and was designed to convey to the eye a swift and proportionate picture of the whole vase war-theatre of the '64-'65 Campaign.

It has been updated but this text is foundational and also represents the state of knowledge and interpretation at the start of the First Gulf War. The author has specialized in the study of Iraq for some years, and this is evident in the authority of the scholarship that is presented here. Utilizing primary and secondary sources in Arabic, and interviews with key personalities extending over some years, the analysis is sound and persuasive. This is an authoritative work that meets a great need: an up-to-date, readable, and comprehensive treatment of recent Iraqi history. Phebe Marr (born September 21, 1931) is a prominent American historian of modern Iraq with the Middle East Institute.

The author's assumptions about political behavior are relevant to the styles of reasoning employed and the kinds of evidence used. First, what leaders, parties, and citizens think and expressly say about politics matters. The words that people use are not a "reflection" of some hidden reality; they are themselves part of that reality. The problem always resides in how words and actions correspond. Important, somewhat information on the Ba'th can be found in speeches, party political programs, and the whole body of ideological artifacts. Second, despite the proclivity of those in public office to propaganda, rhetoric, chicanery, and lies, on the whole even they usually end up saying what they mean and meaning what they say. Third, the author eschews all variations of the conspiratorial view of history. The author singles out for consideration the demonstrably inverted relation between the common Iraqi perception of the pervasiveness of a hateful Western influence and the factually diminishing ability of the West to influence local events in the modern period.
