Cheradame explains - and I believe with perfect accuracy - the nature of the German objective. It is, in his opinion, to lay secure and stable foundations for the system known as Pan-Germanism." "Pan-Germanism or Pan-Germanicism (German: Pangermanismus or Alldeutsche Bewegung; see also Pan-Germanicism) is a pan-nationalist political idea. Pan-Germanists originally sought to unify all the German and possibly also Germanic-speaking peoples in a single nation-state known as Großdeutschland. Pan-Germanism was highly influential in German politics in the 19th century during the unification of Germany when the German Empire was proclaimed as a nation-state in 1871 but without Austria (Kleindeutsche Lösung/Lesser Germany) ,".

The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is sunning and fading to spots on the book covers along with a bit of light edge wear and rubbing. The text pages are clean and bright. There is a previous owner's inked name on the front endpaper. "In the following chapters I have tried to record my impressions, observations, interviews and adventures on a somewhat extensive journalistic pilgrimage through Germany in war-time." "Since he habitually wore a top hat, monocle and spats, he became known as The Dude Reporter. He also appeared in newspaper stories himself, the stories often involving altercations of one sort or another. He went to Europe to cover the war, saying he was working for the British newspapaer Daily Telegraph, but he was also working for Hearst and INS. His stories came from within Germany, which certainly would have forbidden a correspondent from a British newspaper to enter, and their tone in the Hearst papers in 1915 is remarkably more neutral than the writing in his book Behind the German Veil, published in Britain in 1916 and in the United States after America entered the war. Even if de Beaufort was a con man and swindler, his book is well-written, very entertaining and sometimes informative.". Very Good .

 WORLD WAR I BALLOONISTS EPHEMERA, World War I Balloonists Training Material from Arcadia, Ca. Fort Ross U.S. Ballooning Training School
WORLD WAR I BALLOONISTS EPHEMERA
World War I Balloonists Training Material from Arcadia, Ca. Fort Ross U.S. Ballooning Training School
Arcadia, CA: U. S. Government Printing Office, 0. Hardcover. In 1909 the United States Army set up a training reservation in Omaha, NE to train pilots (aviation) and balloonists (observation / signal corp. ) to begin utilizing the newest technological advances in flight in aid of the military. The facility in Nebraska had some unfortunate drawbacks - mostly weather related and after several years, other training facilities were opened, first in Texas, and then, as war beckoned, a facility in Southern California was opened just outside of Arcadia, CA. This facility became known as Ross field and was established June 3rd, 1918. Called the Army Balloon School (at least for a time) the first group of instructors transferred from Texas later in June. The school at some point included both instruction in ballooning (for aerial observation / signal corp. ) but also a section of artillery instruction so that the two sections who would be working in concert in Europe would have some time to train together. The balloonists were to be map-makers, observers of battle formations of the opposition, and help the artillery aim mortars and readjust as needed. This group of ephemera comes from one cadet - Llewellyn Peck, who arrived at the Balloon school within a month or so of the instructors (some papers show dates of July and august 1918) , and goes through at least November 1918. There are also papers, lectures and ephemeral items from 1923-1924 when the balloonist became a Reserve Officer out of the San Francisco Bay area (his home was in Saratoga, CA). This archive represents a unique view of what was involved with making a cadet into a U. S. Army Air Corps Balloonist. 1.) panorama photograph of the HQ Co. Balloon School, Arcadia, CA 19182.)

"His academic career was interrupted by two years (1915 and 1916) spent in Brussels as director of Hoover's humanitarian American Commission for Relief in Belgium. Initially a pacifist, Kellogg dined with the officers of the German Supreme Command. He became shocked by the grotesque Social Darwinist motivation for the German war machine - the creed of survival of the fittest based on violent and fatal competitive struggle is the Gospel of the German intellectuals. Kellogg decided these ideas could only be beaten by force and, using his connections with America's political elite, began to campaign for American intervention in the war. He published an account of his conversations in the book Headquarters Nights." (from WIkipedia). Very Good+ .

It was certainly well established during the nineteenth century, but is particularly associated with World War I. It can be used as a term of reference, or as a form of address. German soldiers would call out to "Tommy" across no man's land if they wished to speak to a British soldier. French and Commonwealth troops would also call British soldiers "Tommies". In more recent times, the term Tommy Atkins has been used less frequently, although the name "Tom" is occasionally still heard; private soldiers in the British Army's Parachute Regiment are still referred to as "Toms".

The dust jacket has several edge tears, nicks and spots of rubbing, along with one medium sized chip missing from the top spine. "But because women were paid less than men, there was a worry that employers would continue to employ women in these jobs even when the men returned from the war. This did not happen; either the women were sacked to make way for the returning soldiers or women remained working alongside men but at lower wage rates. But even before the end of the war, many women refused to accept lower pay for what in most cases was the same work as had been done previously by men. The women workers on London buses and trams went on strike in 1918 to demand the same increase in pay (war bonus) as men. The strike spread to other towns in the South East and to the London Underground. This was the first equal pay strike in the UK which was initiated, led and ultimately won by women.".

They operated in the Baltic, North Sea, Black Sea and Mediterranean as well as the North Atlantic. Previously they had been limited to relatively calm and protected waters. The vessels used to combat them were a range of small, fast surface ships using guns and good luck. They mainly relied on the fact a submarine of the day was often on the surface for a range of reasons, such as charging batteries or crossing long distances. The first approach to protect warships was chainlink nets strung from the sides of battleships, as defense against torpedoes." (from Wikipedia). Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket .

"World War I reparations were war reparations imposed during the Paris Peace Conference upon the Central Powers following their defeat in the First World War by the Allied and Associate Powers. Each of the defeated powers was required to make payments in either cash or kind. Because of the financial situation Austria, Hungary, and Turkey found themselves in after the war, few to no reparations were paid and the requirements for reparations were cancelled. Bulgaria, having paid only a fraction of what was required, saw its reparation figure reduced and then cancelled. Historians have recognized the German requirement to pay reparations as the "chief battleground of the post-war era" and "the focus of the power struggle between France and Germany over whether the Versailles Treaty was to be enforced or revised".
