141. "An Army Of One?" By Gen. Wesley Clark
general Wesley Clark's September 2002 column explains the dangers of unilateralism and the importance of alliances and consensus both in Kosovo and the war against terrorism.
Respond to this Article September 2002
An Army of One?
In the war on terrorism, alliances are not an obstacle to victory. They're the key to it. By Gen. Wesley Clark A few days after September 11, I happened to be walking the halls of the Pentagon, the scene of so many contentious meetings during my years as commander of NATO forces in Europe, and ran into an old acquaintance, now a senior official. We chatted briefly about TV coverage of the crisis and the impending operations in Afghanistan. At his invitation, I began to share some thoughts about how we had waged the Kosovo war by working within NATObut he cut me off. "We read your book," he scoffed. "And no one is going to tell us where we can or can't bomb." That was exactly how the United States proceeded. Of course, the campaign in Afghanistan, as it unfolded, wasn't an all-American show. The United States sought and won help from an array of countries: basing rights in Central Asian states and in Pakistan; some shared intelligence from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and other Muslim states; diplomatic backing from Russia and China; air and naval support from France; naval refueling from Japan; special forces from the United Kingdom, and so on. But unlike the Kosovo campaign, where NATO provided a structured consultation and consensus-shaping process, allied support in this war took the form of a "floating" or "flexible" coalition. Countries supported the United States in the manner and to the extent they felt possible, but without any pretenses of sharing in major decisions. European leaders sought to be more involved. At the Europeans' urging, NATO even declaredinvoking, for the first time, Article V of its founding treatythat the attack on the United States represented an attack on every member. But even so, Washington bypassed and essentially marginalized the alliance. The United Nations was similarly sidelined.

Pershing the Thought Claim: General John J. Pershing effectively discouraged Muslim terrorists in the Philippines by killing them and burying their bodies with pigs. Status: Undetermined. Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2001]
HOW TO STOP ISLAMIC TERRORISTS . . . it worked once in our History . . . Once in US history an episode of Islamic terrorism was very quickly stopped. It happened in the Philippines about 1911, when Gen. John J. Pershing was in command of the garrison. There had been numerous Islamic terrorist attacks, so "Black Jack" told his boys to catch the perps and teach them a lesson. Forced to dig their own graves, the terrorists were all tied to posts, execution style. The US soldiers then brought in pigs and slaughtered them, rubbing their bullets in the blood and fat. Thus, the terrorists were terrorized; they saw that they would be contaminated with hogs' blood. This would mean that they could not enter Heaven, even if they died as terrorist martyrs. All but one was shot, their bodies dumped into the grave, and the hog guts dumped atop the bodies. The lone survivor was allowed to escape back to the terrorist camp and tell his brethren what happened to the others. This brought a stop to terrorism in the Philippines for the next 50 years.

143. Biography Of General Omar N. Bradley
Reassesses the role of general Omar V. Bradley in the United States' campaign in World war II.
It is worth reviewing the personality of another famous commander, General Omar N. Bradley. Six years after the war he wrote a careful “official history” book entitled, “A Soldier’s Story.” He attacks Montgomery and his plans viciously, yet defends Eisenhower’s actions – sometimes even when these actions were to support Montgomery. However at occasions there is a break in the “official history” where we get a real glimpse of his thoughts. Unfortunately for us, Bradley did not keep a diary. If he had, we would have seen his day to day thoughts and what he was really thinking. Instead, we know only that both Eisenhower and Montgomery published their “Histories of the War” first, and that it some cases Bradley scrupulously “corrected history” and corroborated Eisenhower’s version. Patton is the only clear voice that remains from WWII without need of deciphering. We are extremely lucky that Patton followed General Pershing’s advice and kept a diary. Without Patton’s diary, we would not have clear proof of his incredible “sixth sense:” his accurate guesses as to the intention of the enemy. It is easy for a commander to say, years after the war, that he “knew all along” the enemy was about to attack. That commander must be able to prove that he knew – and the best proof is a day-to-day account in a war diary.

148. War Of 1812 - Battle Of North Point - Methodist Meeting House
This building was known as the Battle Ground MethodistEpiscopal Church, which was occupied by general Stricker the night preceding the Battle of North Point and was used as a hospital by both armies, during and after the the battle which took place on September 12, 1814.
Virtual Tour Stop #7 - Methodist Meeting House After the Battle of North Point, the British commander did not press his attack on the withdrawing Americans. This battle being complete, the injured were taken to a local Methodist church where surgeons worked through the night. An unusual point is that casualties from both armies were treated together in the same field 'hospital'. At that time, prisoners where held only until they could be exchanged for an equal number of enemy prisoners. General Stricker, therefore, did not abandon his injured, leaving them with the British. The British, who had decided to encamp for the night, were ill prepared. As a cold September rain began to fall, they did their best to keep themselves and their muskets dry, as they had left their coats and tents back at the landing site on North Point. General Stricker ,"After proper deliberation", chose to withdraw his battle weary troops once again, closer to the defenses of Baltimore. Today, only a few stones of the foundation of the Methodist Meeting House remain visible. The site of this impromptu field hospital is marked with a large stone monument.

153. Memories Of Forty-Eight Years Service
A personal account of service during the Zulu war, the Boer war and World war One, written by general Sir Horace SmithDorrien.
British General Sir Horace Lockwood Smith-Dorrien is famous for his part in two famous events; the Battle of Isandhlwana in 1879, and the Battle of Le Cateau in 1914. At Isandhlwana, he was one of only five soldiers to survive the Zulu Army's envelopment of an invading column of British troops. At Le Cateau, he successfully guided the Second Corps of the British Expeditionary Force in France through one of the most difficult operations possible, that of a fighting withdrawal.
In 1915, as the vicious trench fighting of the western front heated up, he was one of the first senior Allied officers to request a change of methods in order to reduce the appalling casualties already being suffered. Instead of being encouraged in his efforts, he was removed from command by his less than imaginative superior, Sir John French. It will never be known how differently the war in the trenches might have developed had Smith-Dorrien remained on the scene. But the loss of such a capable commander of long experience most likely caused more hardship than otherwise might have occurred.
The excerpts below are from Smith-Dorrien's 1925 book Memories of Forty-Eight Years Service . This 500 page memoir begins with his service as a young man in Africa during the Zulu War, moves on to Egypt, India, Malta, further African service during the Boer War, and finally his famous tour of duty in Belgium and France during World War One. Note that due to its great length and the wide variety of subjects, select chapters will be presented in regular installments.

Memorials for official Post War Commemorations are to be found in most cemeteries and crematoria throughout Australia. When it is not possible to provide a memorial at the site of a veteran's remains, a plaque is provided in one of our Gardens of Remembrance (these have been established in each capital city and Launceston). On behalf of the Department of Defence, the Office issues permission to use the relevant Service badge for use on veterans' graves. Anyone who served in the armed forces, whether eligible for official commemoration or not, is entitled to use the emblem of the Service in which he/she served.

156. Cariadoc's Miscellany: Cooking From Primary Sources: Some General Comments

[This is an article from Cariadoc's Miscellany Miscellany Introduction
Cooking from Primary Sources: Some General Comments
One definition of what the Society is about is "studying the past by selective recreation." Period cooking is one of the few activities that really lets us do this, in a sense of "study" that goes substantially beyond merely learning things that other people already know. There are thousands of pages of period source material available, and I would guess that most of the dishes have not been made by anyone in the past three hundred years. As with many things, the best way to learn is to do it; the following comments are intended to make the process a little easier. When working with early English recipes, remember that the spelling has changed much more than the language and is often wildly inconsistent; one fifteenth century recipe contains the word "Chickens" four times-with four different spellings, of which the first is "Schyconys." It often helps to try sounding out strange words, in the hope that they will be more familiar to the ear than to the eye. Recipes rarely include quantities, temperatures, or times. Working out a recipe consists mostly of discovering that information by trial and error. You may find a modern cookbook useful in doing so. The idea is not to adapt a modern recipe but to use the modern recipe for information on how long a chicken has to be boiled before it is done or how much salt is added to a given volume of stew. That gives you a first guess, to be used the first time you try the dish and modified accordingly.

During World War II, General Benjamin O. Davis was the first African-American general officer in the United States military. General Davis served as an inspector for the Inspector General and later as a special investigator with Judge William Hastie for the Secretary of War's Advisory Committee on Negro Troop Policies. His investigation of discrimination and racial disturbances brought to light the problems of a racially closed military. A report issued November 9, 1943, provides an overview of the problems he uncovered: page 1 page 2 page 3 A document dated January 20, 1945, recommending General Davis for the Distinguished Service Medal illustrates the numerous occasions upon which the general was ordered to investigate incidents involving African-American troops:

profoundly misunderstood in popular culture. Often portrayed as a slovenly drunkard, he was actually a modest and moral man, uncommonly devoted to his wife and children. He was an author of unusual ability and his Memoirs are widely regarded as one of the great books written in the English language. He was also a complex individual with uncommon virtues. We invite you to explore Ulysses S. Grant, a man whose abilities are still misunderstood and underrated. His accomplishments and courage were rare, his personal integrity unmatched.

Maintain general academic and behavioral expectations, but be realistic about anindividual child terms, and how their skills contribute to the war effort or
Children and Fear of War and Terrorism
Tips for Parents and Teachers
National Association of School Psychologists
Adults need to help children feel safe at a time when the world seems to be a more dangerous place.  Parents and teachers in particular must help youngsters understand current events factually, how events do or do not impact their lives, and how to handle their emotional reactions. The degree to which children are affected will vary depending on personal circumstances. Children who have suffered a personal loss from, or had firsthand exposure to, terrorist acts or military actions will be much more vulnerable. Also at greater risk are children whose parents are in the military or in active duty in the reserve forces, and those children whose parents are involved in emergency response or public safety. 
Emotional Responses
Emotional responses vary in nature and severity from child to child.  Nonetheless, there are some similarities in how children (and adults) feel when their lives are impacted by war or the threat of war:
  • Fear: Fear may be the predominant reactionfear for the safety of those in the military as well as fear for their own safety. Children's fantasies of war may include a mental picture of a bomb being dropped on their home. While their worries are probably exaggerated, they are often based on real images of terrorist attacks or war scenes. When children hear rumors at school and pick up bits of information from television, their imaginations may run wild. They may think the worst, however unrealistic it may be. Any publicized threat of war or terrorism close to home may also add to their fear.
