This volume of the history of the regiment begins in 1928 and covers all the battalions, beginning with the years between the wars with the 1st Battalion in India, where it was in action on the NW Frontier, and the 2nd Battalion, after a couple of years in Rhine Army, at home till 1938 when it was sent to Palestine. In 1936 the 4th (TA) Battalion was converted to AA, becoming 44th (The Leicestershire Regiment) AA Battalion RE equipped with searchlights, while the 5th Battalion, as in the Great War, formed a second-line battalion, in May 1939, thus giving 1/5th and 2/5th Battalions. The bulk of the book is taken up with WWII and the parts played by the various battalions. It takes the campaigns in which the regiment was involved on a chronological basis describing the operations undertaken by whichever battalion was there. The last four chapters deal with the post-war period, mainly the 1st Battalion in Hong Kong, Korea, BAOR, the Sudan and Cyprus where the story ends.The regiment s part in WWII begins with the 1/5th in that short-lived and ill-fated campaign in Norway in April 1940, following which the battalion was converted to a pre-OCTU training unit in the UK. 2/5th, which was in 46th North Midland Division throughout the war, joined the BEF in May 1940 and was evacuated from Dunkirk. Subsequently it fought in Tunisia, Italy and Greece ending up in Austria where it was disbanded in May 1946. The 2nd Battalion moved from Palestine to the Western Desert in September 1940 as part of Wavell s Thirty Thousand which routed the Italians in the early stages of that campaign. In May 1941 it fought in Crete then in Syria against the Vichy French and finally in Tobruk. In March 1942 the battalion sailed for Colombo and then India where it was selected for the Chindits and fought in Burma in the long-range penetration role. Its war ended in India. The 1st Battalion began the war in India and in January 1941 it went to Malaya and was involved in the fighting withdrawal down the Malay peninsula to Singapore which surrendered on 15 February 1942. The battalion suffered heavy casualties during the retreat and on 20 December 1941 it was amalgamated with the 2nd E Surrey to form The British Battalion . There is a section on the experiences of this battalion in captivity. In June 1942 the 8th Battalion, formed in October 1940, was redesignated 1st Battalion and as such fought in NW Europe with 49th West Riding Division through France, Belgium, Holland and into Germany.Finally, the 7th Battalion was raised in July 1940. This battalion went to India and was also chosen for the Chindits.

Few aspects of American military history have been as vigorously debated as Harry Truman's decision to use atomic bombs against Japan. In this carefully crafted volume, Michael Kort describes the wartime circumstances and thinking that form the context for the decision to use these weapons, surveys the major debates related to that decision, and provides a comprehensive collection of key primary source documents that illuminate the behavior of the United States and Japan during the closing days of World War II. Kort opens with a summary of the debate over Hiroshima as it has evolved since 1945. He then provides a historical overview of thye events in question, beginning with the decision and program to build the atomic bomb. Detailing the sequence of events leading to Japan's surrender, he revisits the decisive battles of the Pacific War and the motivations of American and Japanese leaders. Finally, Kort examines ten key issues in the discussion of Hiroshima and guides readers to relevant primary source documents, scholarly books, and articles.

The Balkan Games and Balkan Politics in the Interwar Years 1929 – 1939

Politicians in Pursuit of Peace

The Balkan Games resulted on the one hand from the growth of modern European sport and the unsatisfactory performances of the Balkan athletes at national and international level, and on the other hand, from a desire to bring the Balkan peoples together in peace and concord. The Games were initiated in Athens in 1929 and increasingly became an integral part of the political, cultural and social life of the area. The common global reality is that when an athletic event is staged, attempted friendship seldom receives priority. In the 1930s, however, the Balkan Games provided a rare example of an international athletic event bringing antagonistic states together in friendship. This consideration of the significance of the Balkan Games as an instrument of political optimism provides clear evidence of the occasional positive influence of sport in politics. The work is a case-study of interest to political and social scientists and to historians of Europe and sport. This book was previously published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.

Richly researched and engaging, The Columbia History of American Television tracks the growth of TV into a convergent technology, a global industry, a social catalyst, a viable art form, and a complex and dynamic reflection of the American mind and character. Renowned media historian Gary R. Edgerton follows the technological progress and increasing cultural relevance of television from its prehistory (before 1947) to the Network Era (1948-1975) and the Cable Era (1976-1994). He considers the remodeling of television's look and purpose during World War II; the gender, racial, and ethnic components of its early broadcasts and audiences; its transformation of postwar America; and its function in the political life of the country. In conclusion, Edgerton takes a discerning look at our current Digital Era and the new forms of instantaneous communication that continue to change America's social, political, and economic landscape.
