Between 1846 and 1873, California&rsquo;s Indian population plunged from perhaps 150,000 to 30,000. Benjamin Madley is the first historian to uncover the full extent of the slaughter, the involvement of state and federal officials, the taxpayer dollars that supported the violence, indigenous resistance, who did the killing, and why the killings ended. This deeply researched book is a comprehensive and chilling history of an American genocide.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Population </div> <div class="field-item even"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> North America </div> <div class="field-item even"> 18th-19th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300230697" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:37:57 +0000 import.manager 181379 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online And We Were Young.

With his plane grounded, he took his own life hoping that the meagre supply of water they had left might save the life of his mechanic. The young boy was Stewart Ridley and he was 19 years old.

This volume is composed of three accounts previously unavailable in English. Detailed annotations illuminate a seldom understood army and nation during one of the pivotal episodes in European history. Pamfil Nazarov was a peasant from Tver who was conscripted in 1812 but rather than head east to join the army in its campaign against Napoleon, he travelled to St. Petersburg and was selected for the Russian Imperial Guard.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Military/naval history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 18th-19th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9781912174188" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:37:58 +0000 import.manager 181416 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Royal Responsibility in Anglo-Norman Historical Writing http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780198812388 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Winkler, Emily A. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/oxford-university-press">Oxford University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780198812388 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 2017-11-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hardback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £65 </div> </div> </div> <p>This book examines how eleventh-century kings were portrayed in the writing of twelfth-century historians.

The Germans, who were now on the strategic defensive in the East, sought to fall back and consolidate their front along the line of the Dnepr River.

The army was referred to by the French king as the &lsquo;Sons of St. Louis&rsquo; and was pitted against parts of the regular Spanish army and a numerous militia. The cause of the war was a revolution in Spain in 1820 which brought in a &lsquo;Liberal&rsquo; government and the Spanish parliament, the Cortez, held Ferdinand, the Spanish king, a virtual prisoner. Ferdinand appealed for help from the French who were supported by an army of Spanish Royalists.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Military/naval history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 18th-19th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9781912174096" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:37:58 +0000 import.manager 181413 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online The Imperial Army Project http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780198704461 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Britain and the Land Forces of the Dominions and India, 1902-1945 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Delaney, Douglas E. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/oxford-university-press">Oxford University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780198704461 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Fri, 2017-12-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hardback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £85 </div> </div> </div> <p>A book which reveals the method by which the British army organized their land forces throughout the empire to make an army of standardized pieces that could be multiplied, expanded, and joined together in time of war; a military coalition that worked throughout the early twentieth century, even as the dominions and India became more autonomous.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Imperial and colonial </div> <div class="field-item even"> Military/naval history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Asia and Middle East </div> <div class="field-item even"> Britain and Ireland </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:37:59 +0000 import.manager 181450 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online The Indian Army in the First World War.
