Book Description: Native peoples played major roles in the War of 1812 as allies of both the United States and Great Britain, but few wrote about their conflict experiences. Two famously wrote down their stories: Black Hawk, the British-allied chief of the still-independent Sauks from the upper Mississippi, and American soldier William Apess, a Christian convert from the Pequots who lived on a reservation in Connecticut. Carl Benn explores the wartime passages of their autobiographies, in which they detail their decisions to take up arms, their experiences in the fighting, their broader lives within the context of native-newcomer relations, and their views on such critical issues as aboriginal independence. Scholars, students, and general readers interested in indigenous and military history in the early American republic will appreciate these important memoirs, along with Benn's helpful introductions and annotations.

Book Description: Stretching from "Aaron, Sam, Arizona pioneer" to "Zutacapan, Acomo pueblo chief," the three-volume Encyclopedia of Frontier Biography, and Supplemental-volume 4, profiles approximately 4,500 frontier pioneers and Native Americans. Dan L. Thrapp's comprehensive work will interest scholars, researchers, and general readers curious about the figures who developed, defended, decorated, and devilized the American West. All the famous ones are here: Volume I (A-F) includes Billy the Kid, Daniel Boone, Calamity Jane, George Custer, Buffalo Bill, Cochise, and John C. Fremont, among others. There are also entries for worthies less well known: Big Nose Kate, Nellie Cashman, Scott Cooley, to cite a few. Even Gary Cooper and other actors who portrayed westerners are sketched in. Thrapp's richly detailed biographies are continued in Volumes II (G-O) and III (P-Z). Thrapp has included seventeenth- and eighteenth-century figures in both New France and New England, as well as the trans-Appalachian country, but the majority are nineteenth-century men and women who discovered, settled, fought for, or simply lived in the raw lands west of the Mississippi River.

Book Description: Für Ernest Hemingway eines der besten Bücher unserer Literatur Es ist ein grandioses Meisterwerk, das die Empfindungen, Sorgen und Nöte des einfachen Soldaten im amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg auslotet, Jahre bevor die Psychoanalyse Einzug in die Wissenschaften hielt. Verfasst von einem 22-jährigen Collegeabbrecher, der keine Ahnung vom Soldatenleben hatte und erst 1871, sechs Jahre nach dem Ende des Bürgerkriegs, geboren worden war. Cranes Stil und Dramaturgie lassen den Leser unmittelbar am Geschehen teilhaben. Als "Die rote Tapferkeitsmedaille" 1895 erschien, entwickelte sich der Roman rasch zu einem Bestseller und veränderte die Sicht auf den modernen Krieg radikal. Dieser Perspektive schlossen sich viele Autoren an, bis hin zu Erich Maria Remarque in seinem Roman "Im Westen nichts Neues".
