An Emotional Gauntlet: From Life in Peacetime America to the War in European Skies - First edition

2004, ISBN: 9781844151202

Hardcover, ID: 818062841

NY: Hill and Wang, 1993. 2nd Printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, "Slavery emerged in the American colonies as part of a general trend toward use of forced labor on the periphery of an expanding Europe. In the United States the peculiar institution" differed in important ways from slavery in other countries. Not least, American Slavery pays equal attention to slaves and their masters, focusing on the dynamic relationship between them and the centrality of that relationship to the Old South. Slavery--its history, development, and the issues it raised over the centuries--remains at the core of the American experience. Peter Kolchin's incisive synthesis fills a major gap in the experience for the general reader and for historians, who will find it both stimulating and appealing." Hard cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. Former owner's initials on front fly leaf and there is a very minimal amount of underlining. No other markings noted. Dust jacket in very good condition. Stated Second Printing, Hill and Wang, 1993, Barnsley: Pen & Sword Aviation, 2004. Stuart J Wright tells the gripping story of a World War II American aircrew flying missions from Old Buckenham, England in a B-24 Liberator bomber they nicknamed Corky. This is a true account based on years of research and correspondence with crew members and their families. Wright adds a dimension rarely explored in other World War II memoirs and narratives, beginning the chronicle during peacetime when the men of the aircrew are introduced as civilians - kids during the 1920s. As they mature through the years of the Great Depression to face a world at war, questions are raised about 'just' and 'unjust' wars, imperialism and patriotism. Jingoistic sentimentality is resisted in favour of objectivity, as the feelings and motivations of the crew members are explored: the Chinese American air gunner had hoped to serve in the U.S. Army Air Force to fight against the Japanese invaders of his homeland; the Jewish navigator felt compelled to join the battle against Nazi Germany. In recounting the harrowing conditions and horrors of bombing missions over Europe, An Emotional Gauntlet emphasizes the interpersonal relationships within the crew and the spirit these men shared. As pilot Jack Nortridge regularly assured his crew, 'If you fly with me, I'm going to bring you home.' This book is a testament to their strength and determination. 'A compelling story. Wright establishes the strong spirit these men shared, based on their pilot's pledge that he would bring them back - back from each mission and back to resume their peacetime lives. An Emotional Gauntlet stands out for its integration of pre-war civilian life with wartime experiences.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Pen & Sword Aviation, 2004

"An Emotional Gauntlet stands out for its integration of pre-war civilian life with wartime experiences. To me, this is the essence of America's story in the war, and I am glad to find a book that comprehends this and tells the story from this perspective".' - Jerome Klinkowitz, author of Yanks Over Europe: American Flyers in World War II.
