Since its establishment, the former Fort Devens has undergone various transformations to serve the needs of the Army. Camp Devens, Massachusetts, was named in honor of Brigadier General Charles Devens, served as a training camp for 76th Division (National Army), which occupied the cantonment, August 1917 to July 1918. A reception center for selectees following the end of World War I, the camp was designated a demobilization center. Camp Devens processed more than 100,000 selectees into the Army, and as a demobilization center, processed more than 150,000 men out of the Army.

History of the War, Weapons and Tactics, The Warring Nations, Biographies, Sources, Miscellanea, and Glossary. Chronology. Philip J. Haythornthwaite FRHistS (born 1951) is an internationally respected and prolific author and historical consultant specializing in the military history, uniforms and equipment. Whilst his main area of research is the Napoleonic Wars, his impressive list of publications covers a much wider range of periods from the English Civil War until WWI. Since 1973 Haythornthwaite has had over 80 books published, plus numerous articles and papers on military history. Much of this output through the publishers Orion Books and Osprey Publishing and Haythornthwaite’s writing has, beyond doubt, helped keep alive a general interest in history. Moreover, his seminal works The Armies of Wellington and Redcoats, The British Soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars as well as Picton’s Division at Waterloo are clearly scholarly works of research that show the author to be the equal of more formally credentialed historians. Also notable is the fact that Haythornthwaite has prepared new editions of several well-known Peninsular War memoirs : Life in Napoleon’s Army: the Memoirs of Captain Elzear Blaze In the Peninsula with a French Hussar: Memoirs of the War of the French in Spain. Haythornthwaite is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a Member of the British Commission for Military History.

In 1944 Reeder was assigned to command the 12th Infantry Regiment which fought on Utah beach during D-Day. During the Battle of Normandy, Reeder received a shrapnel wound that almost severed his left leg. Reeder was taken to the Walter Reed Army Hospital and his leg was amputated.

His narrative account of Col. Ranald S. Mackenzie's May 19, 1873 black operation against Mexican bandits titled "The Mackenzie Raid" served as the inspiration for a television series first aired in 1958 titled Mackenzie's Raiders.

It evinces an artistic classicism and political conservatism that are rare among other publications of its type. Since 1999, The New Criterion has been running the New Criterion Poetry Prize, a poetry contest with a cash prize. In 2004, According to the The New York Sun, for a quarter of a century The New Criterion "has helped its readers distinguish achievement from failure in painting, music, dance, literature, theater, and other arts. The magazine, whose circulation is 6,500, has taken a leading role in the culture wars, publishing articles whose titles are an intellectual call to arms." The magazine set out "to speak plainly and vigorously about the problems that beset the life of the artists and the life of the mind in our society" while resisting "a more general cultural drift"

Cambridge, Massachusetts: MS in a Bottle, 1999. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. , 272 pages. Stiff cover has front and rear flap. Autographed copy sticker on front cover. Signed on the title page by the author. A young black man is stopped by cops on suspicion of rape. A fight breaks out and the kid is killed. Jeffrey Temple, the cop who threw the fatal punch, opposes the coverup contrived by his partners. The father of the dead kid, John Shipman, goes to the DA and demands justice. But what is justice? The narrative follows these two men, Temple and Shipman, towards a final, tragic climax. The novel bursts with power and passion. From the opening police chase to the ending manhunt, Pfarrer is in tune with rage--the murderous fury of his working-class White police-men and the weary hatred of his self-educated Black protagonist. The novel descends into the chasm between the races. In the authentic voices of all his characters, Pfarrer scrutinizes the anguished, pre-racial needs of our nation's Caucasians and African-Americans. Can we all get along? The answer many very well be "hell no." Temple and Shipman is that rarity of narrative entertainment--a fast-paced action story enriched by complex and engaging characters. At the heart of the novel are considerations of ideas, faith, and race upon which the future of our nation may very well depend.--A stunning achievement of the novelist's craft. Twenty years before George Floyd and too many other unarmed African-American men, this novel attempted to highlight the issue and sought to bridge, at least in part, the gap between communities.
Harrisburg, PA: The Stackpole Company, 1954. Presumed First Edition, First printing Thus. Hardcover. 24 cm. xxx, 303,  pages. Slight DJ wear. Illustrated end papers. Frontis illustration. illus. maps (one fold-out) Index. Benteen's Battle Map at end. Preface by Colonel W. A. Graham. This is commonly known as the Reno report. A Court of Inquiry, unlike of Court Martial, which tries only criminal charges formally preferred, is a purely investigator body whose one and only function is to inquire into and report upon aspersions or other derogatory matter respecting a person in the military service, with a view to establishing facts; and if so directed, it recommends the action, if any, that should be taken in the premises. The Curt of Inquiry authorized by the President on the 25th day of November 1878 , convened at Chicago, Illinois, 13 January 1879, and adjourned 11 February 1879, after an extended hearing, with daily sessions excluding Sundays only. The testimony of 23 witnesses was taken, all of whom were subjected to cross examination under oath, and eleven documentary exhibits ere received in evidence. The inquiry quickly developed into a broad investigation of the manner in which the battle was fought, and competent historian and students consider the record of its proceedings to be the chief and most important repository of authentic detailed information on the subject. The original official record, some 1300 pages in length, was held in the confidential files of the Judge Advocate General's Office until 1941, when it went to the National Archives. In 1951 a verbatim edition of the official record, limited to 125 copies, complete and unexpurgated was published by Graham. This volume is an abstract.

With indexes to names and to places. What has been left out is all that relates to the general history of the Revolution. There remains much that is likely to have value for students of American History. This is based on a number of manuscript sources.

Douglas Waitley is the author of nineteen books on Americana, ranging in subject matter from regional histories to accounts of the era of steam locomotives. Grand strategy, specific strategy, battle tactics, and combat: these are the ingredients of war. How they are put together determine, in large measure, whether the war is won or lost. The study of America's twentieth-century wars will reveal that they were not isolated events erupting in a few years of battle and bloodshed and thin sinking into the past, to be encountered only in history books and grandfathers' stories. Instead, each of the wars was a unique experience that left the world altered in a way that would affect our nation's domestic and international policies far into the future. In a very real way, we are the products of those wars and the changes they brought about. that is why we should seek to understand them.
