BOOK EXCERPT:

At the outbreak of the First World War, an entire generation of young men charged into battle for what they believed was a glorious cause. Over the next four years, that cause claimed the lives of some 13 million soldiers--more than twice the number killed in all the major wars from 1790 to 1914. But despite this devastating toll, the memory of the war was not, predominantly, of the grim reality of its trench warfare and battlefield carnage. What was most remembered by the war's participants was its sacredness and the martyrdom of those who had died for the greater glory of the fatherland. War, and the sanctification of it, is the subject of this pioneering work by well-known European historian George L. Mosse. Fallen Soldiers offers a profound analysis of what he calls the Myth of the War Experience--a vision of war that masks its horror, consecrates its memory, and ultimately justifies its purpose. Beginning with the Napoleonic wars, Mosse traces the origins of this myth and its symbols, and examines the role of war volunteers in creating and perpetuating it. But it was not until World War I, when Europeans confronted mass death on an unprecedented scale, that the myth gained its widest currency. Indeed, as Mosse makes clear, the need to find a higher meaning in the war became a national obsession. Focusing on Germany, with examples from England, France, and Italy, Mosse demonstrates how these nations--through memorials, monuments, and military cemeteries honoring the dead as martyrs--glorified the war and fostered a popular acceptance of it. He shows how the war was further promoted through a process of trivialization in which war toys and souvenirs, as well as postcards like those picturing the Easter Bunny on the Western Front, softened the war's image in the public mind. The Great War ended in 1918, but the Myth of the War Experience continued, achieving its most ruthless political effect in Germany in the interwar years. There the glorified notion of war played into the militant politics of the Nazi party, fueling the belligerent nationalism that led to World War II. But that cataclysm would ultimately shatter the myth, and in exploring the postwar years, Mosse reveals the extent to which the view of death in war, and war in general, was finally changed. In so doing, he completes what is likely to become one of the classic studies of modern war and the complex, often disturbing nature of human perception and memory.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Fallen is Joshua Dagon's first novel. The setting is the Los Angeles club/circuit scene and the plot involves a fallen angel and his struggle to protect those he loves. The story is told in two consecutive books; it is completed in Mr. Dagon's second book, Demon Tears, which is already complete and is scheduled for release in February 2007.Various themes explored in the novels include physical beauty, personal spirituality, definitions of good and evil, the "dual faces" of the Church throughout history, the experience of using the so-called "party" drugs, and even the secret to true happiness (which turns out to be quite simple).Back-of-Book Summary:Nicholas Reynolds had messed up: he?d taken two party drugs that didn?t get along with each other. Now, his glamorous Saturday night plans had been reduced to throwing up in a thin, lightless alley.Up until tonight, Nick had been getting along well enough, even by Los Angeles standards. A model-slash-actor of respectable success, he was young, healthy, very attractive, and the hub of his requisite clique. He was generally popular and appreciated?although perhaps not enough by the guy he was dating who, interestingly, insisted they were not dating.Though, what made this particular evening truly remarkable for Nick was not his life-threatening overdose.No, it was the enormous demon who also thought Nick?s lightless, Hollywood alley might be a good place to hide...Back Quote:?Joshua Dagon is a huge and monumental talent in the field of literature of our day. Expect to turn the pages with surprise, mystery and excitement. Look out, Stephen King, Joshua Dagon is here!? ? Jill Grande Goodsell, President, Grande-Goodsell Institute for the Arts & Humanities

"A Fallen Eagle" is the true story of a young boy from East Texas, who volunteered for service in 1942. He entered the service with only a high school education and limited experience, other than working on a farm. His desire to be a pilot drove him to overcome numerous obstacles to be accepted into pilot training. He persevered through rigorous training to earn his wings.

Through over 75 of his personal letters, he shares his experiences, both emotional and physical, as he went from being a farm boy to being a heavy bomber pilot. He flew in dangerous combat situations, saw the horrors of aerial battle, and ultimately, gave his life in the service of his country. The human side of the tragedy is told not only in his letters, but by letters of the crew's next of kin and government correspondence in the aftermath. The final chapter describes the detailed government process to recover, make positive identification, and return his remains to the states. CLARENCE P.
