Growing Up in Wartime Southampton

This is a story spanning some of the most turbulent decades in recent world history. James Marsh was born during the first year of the Second World War and many of his infant years were spent in air-raid shelters outside his home. Bombs rained down from the German Luftwaffe as they tried to destroy the city of Southampton, which has now been James' home for more than sixty years. The gritty determination, community spirit and, above all, the humour, with which the local community faced the difficulties of war, have stayed with James throughout his life. Moving on to describe the harsh lessons learned in 1940s and '50s schooling and subsequently describing his teenage years in the merchant navy, this book explores how growing up in the post-war years was both a challenge and a lot of fun.

The fascinating story of the city's growth includes many examples of its links to the U.S. Highlighting its maritime heritage, this history explores the intimate relationship Southampton has with the sea, principally since the coming of the steamship. Sheltered deep water and minimal tidal variation have been of unrivaled benefit to this port that has found favor since Roman times. There have nevertheless been periods both of prosperity and decline, and this book tells the fascinating story of the city’s growth. Interwoven with biographical details from the author, who worked in Southampton for 20 years, this book reveals his family connections with the port that go back to the time when his grandfather sailed from Southampton to South Africa at the commencement of the Anglo Boer War.

This is a major new history of the British army during the Great War written by three leading military historians. Ian Beckett, Timothy Bowman and Mark Connelly survey operations on the Western Front and throughout the rest of the world as well as the army's social history, pre-war and wartime planning and strategy, the maintenance of discipline and morale and the lasting legacy of the First World War on the army's development. They assess the strengths and weaknesses of the army between 1914 and 1918, engaging with key debates around the adequacy of British generalship and whether or not there was a significant 'learning curve' in terms of the development of operational art during the course of the war. Their findings show how, despite limitations of initiative and innovation amongst the high command, the British army did succeed in developing the effective combined arms warfare necessary for victory in 1918.

Eric Moon, a progressive, even radical librarian who for more than 50 years has served his profession as goad and prod, devoted practitioner, gutsy journalist, magnanimous publisher, revered and resented association leader, smug antagonist, beloved mentor and antic crony, has been at the center of almost every important debate involving the shape and direction of the library profession in North America since the late 1950s and well into the 1990s, and before that for some years in England. Editor of Library Journal, president of Scarecrow Press, president of the American Library Association, Moon has had an opinion on all of the heated issues that have preoccupied librarianship in recent decades: civil rights, social responsibility, intellectual freedom, spurring the young and the new, balanced collections, public funding, and the Sisyphean governance of the ALA. Eric Moon's life is told with the help of Kister's 115 hours of interviews with Moon and his wife, and over 50 hours with dozens of friends and associates. This unvarnished account balances Moon's ambitions and accomplishments with his demons and failures and not only tells the story of the man but also outlines the main course of events in Anglo-American librarianship during the past half century.
