They called us enemy

July 17, 2019
Takei, George, 1937- author.
Marietta, GA : Top Shelf Productions, 2019.
204 pages : chiefly illustrations ; 23 cm
A stunning graphic memoir recounting actor/author/activist George Takei's childhood imprisoned within American concentration camps during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon -- and America itself -- in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love. George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father's -- and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In 1942, at the order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, every person of Japanese descent on the west coast was rounded up and shipped to one of ten "relocation centers," hundreds or thousands of miles from home, where they would be held for years under armed guard. They Called Us Enemy is Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the joys and terrors of growing up under legalized racism, his mother's hard choices, his father's faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future. What is American? Who gets to decide? When the world is against you, what can one person do? To answer these questions, George Takei joins co-writers Justin Eisinger & Steven Scott and artist Harmony Becker for the journey of a lifetime.

Surviving genocide : native nations and the United States from the American Revolution to bleeding Kansas

July 12, 2019
Ostler, Jeffrey, author.
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2019]
ix, 533 pages : illustrations, maps ; 24 cm
Introduction: An Icy River and a Raging Sea -- Part One: DISEASE, WAR, AND DISPOSSESSION. 1 Trajectories, 1500s-1763 ; 2 Wars of Revolution and Independence, 1763-1783 ; 3 Just and Lawful Wars, 1783-1795 ; 4 Survival and New Threats, 1795-1810 ; 5 Wars of 1812 -- Part Two: PREPARING FOR REMOVAL. 6 Nonvanishing Indians on the Eve of Removal, 1815-1830 ; 7 West of the Mississippi, 1803-1835 -- Part Three: REMOVAL. 8 Removal and the Southern Indian Nations, 1830-1840s ; 9 Removal and the Northern Indian Nations, 1830-1850s ; 10 Destruction and Survival in the Zone of Removal, 1840s-1860 ; 11 The Name of Removal -- Conclusion: Historians and Prophets -- Appendix 1. The Question of Genocide in U.S. History -- Appendix 2. Population Estimates by Nation.
In the first part of this sweeping two-volume history, Jeffrey Ostler investigates how American democracy relied on Indian dispossession and the federally sanctioned use of force to remove or slaughter Indians in the way of U.S. expansion. He charts the losses that Indians suffered from relentless violence and upheaval and the attendant effects of disease, deprivation, and exposure. This volume centers on the eastern United States from the 1750s to the start of the Civil War. An authoritative contribution to the history of the United States' violent path toward building a continental empire, this ambitious and well-researched book deepens our understanding of the seizure of indigenous lands, including the use of treaties to create the appearance of Native consent to dispossession. Ostler also carefully documents the resilience of Native people, showing how they survived genocide by creating alliances, defending their towns, and rebuilding their communities.

George Marshall : defender of the republic

July 11, 2019
Roll, David L., 1940- author.
New York : Dutton Caliber, [2019]
viii, 694 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations, maps ; 25 cm
"The extraordinary career of George Catlett Marshall--America's most distinguished soldier-statesman since George Washington--whose selfless leadership and moral character influenced the course of two world wars and helped define the American century. Winston Churchill called him World War II's "organizer of victory." Harry Truman said he was "the greatest military man that this country ever produced." Today, in our era of failed leadership, few lives are more worthy of renewed examination than Marshall and his fifty years of loyal service to the defense of his nation and its values. Even as a young officer he was heralded as a genius, a reputation that grew when in WWI he planned and executed a nighttime movement of more than a half million troops from one battlefield to another that led to the armistice. Between the wars he helped modernize combat training, and re-staffed the U.S. Army's officer corps with the men who would lead in the next decades. But as WWII loomed, it was the role of army chief of staff in which Marshall's intellect and backbone were put to the test, when his blind commitment to duty would run up against the realities of Washington politics. Long seen as a stoic, almost statuesque figure, he emerges in these pages as a man both remarkable and deeply human, thanks to newly discovered sources. Set against the backdrop of five major conflicts--two world wars, Palestine, Korea, and the Cold War--Marshall's education in military, diplomatic, and political power, replete with their nuances and ambiguities, runs parallel with America's emergence as a global superpower. The result is a defining account of one of our most consequential leaders"-- Provided by publisher.

Preface / Owen Grieves & John D. Fairfield -- Introduction / Owen Grieves & John D. Fairfield -- From hamlet to Cincinnati neighborhood / Ben Giles & John D.

"This book is the product of John Fairfield's long association with Zane Miller, the Cincinnati school of urban history, and the idea of symptomatic history. In tracing the development of Oakley from a small agricultural hamlet to a busy urban neighborhood, this history treats local developments as symptomatic of larger national trends. These trends include the rise and fall of a mass production economy and the shift to a service economy, the fortunes and fate of public transportation, and the patterns and policies promoting-and sometimes reducing-racial segregation"--Provided by publisher.

Soldiers of a Different Cloth : Notre Dame Chaplains in World War II

Wukovits, John F., 1944- author.
Notre Dame, Indiana : University of Notre Dame Press, [2018]
xxv, 381 pages, 32 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations, maps, portraits ; 24 cm
"Foreword by Fr. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. ; introduction by Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C."
"Our first baptism of blood": war opens in the Philippines -- "The chaplain is the servant of God for all": chaplains in war training -- "Surely war is a dirty game": the chaplains go to war -- Chaplains at the battlefront: Jnuary 1943 to December 1944 -- "I never expected to come out of the Philippines alive": chaplains in the Pacific, 1943 -- "Daily was I shelled, nightly was I bombed": Father Barry from Sicily to Rome -- "Face to face with the realism, the tragedy, and the horror of the war": Father Sampson at D-Day -- "Our chaplains are becoming more scattered every week": chaplains in the Pacific, 1944 -- Hope Mr. Hitler goes underground before winter": chaplains in Europe to the end of 1944 -- Onward to victory: January 1945 to present -- "I had the devil scared out of me many a time": closing in on Japan -- "Facing the insanity of Himmler's madmen": onward to victory in Europe -- "You could have heard my cheer in Niles": onward to victory in the Pacific -- "I have seen my share of blood, death, mud, hunger and cold": home.
In Soldiers of a Different Cloth, New York Times best-selling author and military historian John Wukovits tells the inspiring story of thirty-five chaplains and missionaries who, while garnering little acclaim, performed extraordinary feats of courage and persistence during World War II. Ranging in age from twenty-two to fifty-three, these University of Notre Dame priests and nuns were counselor, friend, parent, and older sibling to the young soldiers they served. These chaplains experienced the horrors of the Death March in the Philippines and the filthy holds of the infamous Hell Ships. They dangled from a parachute while descending toward German fire at Normandy and shivered in Belgium#x92;s frigid snows during the Battle of the Bulge. They languished in German and Japanese prison camps, and stood speechless at Dachau. Based on a vast collection of letters, papers, records, and photographs in the archives of the University of Notre Dame, as well as other contemporary sources, Wukovits brings to life these nearly forgotten heroes who served wherever duty sent them and wherever the war dictated. Wukovits intertwines their stories on the battlefronts with their memories of Notre Dame. In their letters to their superior in South Bend, Indiana, they often asked about campus, the Grotto, and the football team. Their love for Notre Dame helped buttress them during their wartime tribulations, and their return to campus was akin to a warm homecoming. Soldiers of a Different Cloth will fascinate and engage all readers interested in the history of World War II and alumni, friends, and fans of the Fighting Irish. -- Amazon.com.

This book illustrates how Dayton's Jews have responded and adapted to challenges ranging from the Great Flood of 1913 to resettlement of immigrants throughout the 20th century, from sacrifices for the state of Israel to activism in the civil rights era"--back cover.

"Cincinnati's West End is a snapshot of a community in Cincinnati, Ohio during 1940-1970 when the political and social climate was in a slow crawl from segregation to integration and affirmative action. With its ever-changing boundaries, the West End was a citadel for a population in constant migration from the South to the North in search of positive economic, social, political, and educational opportunities. Up rooted and destroyed in the late nineteen fifties and early sixties, the West end of old bears little resemblance to the current West End. Cincinnati's West End is an illumination of the institutions, people, places, sounds, smells, customs, myths and ultimate successes of inner city pioneers. Their personal histories are spiritual testimonies of people who, in spite of racism, segregation and poverty succeeded in a profusion of professions, unknown to their ancestors"--Back cover.
