Winning and Losing in the Civil War collects fifteen of the most influential short writings by accomplished Civil War historian Albert Castel, each presented with his trademark wit, style, and analytical precision. The author expounds on some of the most provocative, arresting issues surrounding the war, including the dispute over inevitability of Northern victory and the question of Lee's greatness on and off the battlefield. Castel contemplates presidents and mules, generals and guerrillas, lovers and haters, facts and opinions, actualities and probabilities. In addition, he uses the volume as a forum for reflecting on his role as historian, identifying the primary problem facing present-day practitioners of Civil War historiography, and illumining what remains to be accomplished in this heavily tilled but ever-popular field of scholarly inquiry.

The 'Hundred Days' campaign of 1918 remains a neglected aspect of the First World War. Why was the German army defeated on the Western Front? Did its morale collapse or was it beaten by the improved military effectiveness of a British army which had climbed a painful 'learning curve' towards modern combined arms warfare? This revealing insight into the crucial final months of the First World War uses state-of-the-art methodology to present a rounded case study of the ability of both armies to adapt to the changing realities they faced. Jonathan Boff draws on both British and German archival sources, some of them previously unseen, to examine how representative armies fought during the 'Hundred Days' campaign. Assessing how far the application of modern warfare underpinned the British army's part in the Allied victory, the book highlights the complexity of modern warfare and the role of organisational behaviour within it.

A practical approach to weight management successfully used for more than 50 years by people of many nationalities. Laurel Keyes teaches you how to eat what you want until you are completely satisfied. This method works!Instead of looking for ?what?s wrong with you,? we look for ?what?s right.? As a sculptor focuses attention on the image of the finished statue he intends to bring out of the stone, letting chips from his chisel fall away unnoticed, so do we keep a picture of the potentialities of each person before us?we help the Real Person emerge from his or her prison of fat, and let the faults and failures drop away as they will.If you have tried everything and you believe that nothing will conquer your weight and appetite and that no one understands your problem, you are wrong. Laurel Keyes struggled with an overweight problem all of her life and could not lose at all. ?My will power was exhausted.?She was convinced that the chief factor in treating obesity had been overlooked. Treatment had been for the result of overeating instead of the cause. She found a way to do it and lose weight, and keep it off!

Winning and Losing in Afghanistan

As the bloodshed in Iraq intensified in 2005, Afghanistan quickly faded from the nation's front pages to become the “other war,” supposedly going well and largely ignored. In fact, the insurgency in Afghanistan was about to break out with renewed force, the drug problem was worsening, and international coordination was losing focus. That July, Ronald Neumann arrived in Kabul from Baghdad as the U.S. ambassador, bringing the experience of a career diplomat whose professional lifetime had been spent in the greater Middle East, beginning thirty-eight years earlier in the same country in which it ended—Afghanistan. Neumann's account of how the war in Afghanistan unfolded over the next two years is rich with heretofore unexamined details of operations, tensions, and policy decisions. He demonstrates why the United States was slow to recognize the challenge it faced and why it failed to make the requisite commitment of economic, military, and civilian resources. His account provides a new understanding of the problems of alliance warfare in conducting simultaneous nation building and counterinsurgency. Honest in recounting failures as well as successes, the book is must reading as much for students of international affairs who want to understand the reality of diplomatic policymaking and implementation in the field as for those who want to understand the nation's complex “other war.”
