  Feature Articles This month's theme is military history and the times of MacArthur.
Douglas MacArthur: The Strategist Onstage
Thirty years ago, William Manchester wrote a biography of Douglas MacArthur titled American Caesar in which he attemped to portray the general as a man of action somewhat in the mold of the legendary Roman. The title was perhaps unfortunate, for the appellation Caesar has never worn well on an American soldier. But MacArthur was a remarkable man - intelligent and flawed; considerate to a defeated Japan but also vindictive to fellow officers. A skilled administrator and a brilliant strategist, he was also vain and theatrical; at once self confident and self important. The general was conscious of "duty, honor, country," concepts learned and accepted at West Point during his college days, but he could treat shabily able subordinates like Dwight Eisenhower, and attempt to justify his disregard of the policies and orders of his last commander in chief, President Truman. Caesar crossed his Rubicon in Italy; MacArthur was stymied by his in Korea... [Read More]

The First Silesian War
Frederick II
The First Silesian War was really the first stage of the War of the Austrian Succession. The causes of the war were that Maria Theresa, the archduchess, would inherit the lands of her father Emperor Charles VI, and that her husband, Francis I, the Duke of Lorraine, would be crowned as Holy Roman Emperor. At the Pragmatic Sanction Charles Albert, the Elector of Bavaria, was opposed to the succession because he believed that he should have the territory. He had the support of France, Austria's enemy. At the same time, Augustus III, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony advanced his own claim to Silesia. Both rulers were married to Hapsburgs. Even King Philip V of Spain claimed Silesia because the Hapsburg Holy Roman Emperor Charles V had been king of Spain. Frederick II of Prussia (Frederick the Great, shown in the picture), wanted Silesia and invaded it, justifying it by unsettled dynastic claims. This event sparked the First Silesian War...

The Second Silesian War
The Second Silesian War started in 1743. Britain had agreed to an alliance with Maria Theresa. The British had joined in the alliance because they wanted to fight the French, whom they had been fighting back in the colonies. King George II of England was worried about the French threat to Hanover, to which King George II was the elector. Now she could carry on the war against the French and the Bavarians. She created the Pragmatic Army which was made up of 16,000 British troops, 16,000 Hanoverians, and 8,000 Hessians and Austrians. The army's grand total was of 40,000. A very decisive battle would be fought at Dettingen in Belgium on June 27, 1743. [Read More]

The Jacobite Uprising of 1745
The Jacobite Uprising of 1745 was a civil war fought in Great Britain. King James VII of Scotland (James II of England) had been removed long ago. The House of Stuart, a Catholic faction no longer in control of the Monarchy, was replaced by the House of Hanover. This House was led by King George II. Now, James had been trying to invade Scotland and then England, but the English navy was not leaving any gaps. In 1745, most of the English army including King George II himself left to fight the French in Belgium during the War of Austrian Succession. This gave a good time for an uprising. James's son, Prince Charles Edward Stuart, would lead an invasion because James was much to old to fight in battles. They were a small force, but they still tried to conquer the whole of Scotland and to get the chiefs of the clans on their side. There were many Jacobite (Jacobite comes from the Latin word for James: Jacobus) supporters in Scotland and even some in England. [Read More]

The Korean War
The Korean War was fought from June 25, 1950 to the signing of peace on July 27, 1953. The war was essentially a conflict between combatants in the war included The People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), Republic of Korea (South Korea), the United States, the United Kingdom, the People's Republic of China, New Zealand, Canada, the Netherlands, Turkey, and even Japan. The People's Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea fought until the United Nations got involved, as later did later the People's Republic of China. The war, though armistace was signed in 1953, and can still be said to be going on today since there are still U.S. Soldiers at the 38 th parallel. [Read More]

Great idea to have a monthly newsletter! Although mostly male oriented , I was glad to see in the "more articles" section an article about "women and witchcraft"....WOW, I too feel like I'm still living in the past!

Keep up the good work!

Yeah, I had too much free time in computer class. I got the sources and planned out the articles then typed them up at home. Your article on MacArthur was pretty good, by the way.

I like what I see so far.  Just one correction, and most of you may see this as nitpicking.  A more correct title for "The Korean War" would have been "The Second Korean War."  American soldiers fought in Korea once before, in 1871.  You can read all about the campaign here.  I seem to be the only American these days who has even heard of that conflict.  Now there's a forgotten war for you!
