As the fledgling nation looked west to the land beyond the Appalachian Mountains, it turned to the army to advance and defend its national interests. Clashing with Spain, Britain, France, Mexico, the Confederacy, and Indians in this pursuit of expansion, the Army´s failures and successes alternately delayed and hastened western migration. Roads, river improvements, and railroads, often constructed or facilitated by the army, further solidified the nation´s presence as it reached the Pacific Ocean and expanded north and south to the borders of Canada and Mexico. Western military experiences thus illustrate the dual role played by the United States Army in insuring national security and fostering national development. Robert Wooster´s study examines the fundamental importance of military affairs to social, economic, and political life throughout the borderlands and western frontiers. Integrating the work of other military historians as well as tapping into a broad array of primary materials, Wooster offers a multifaceted narrative that will shape our understanding of the frontier military experience, its relationship with broader concerns of national politics, and its connection to major themes and events in American history. 1.

Today when you factor in the interest on the national debt from past wars and total defense expenditures the United States spends almost 40% of its federal budget on the military. It accounts for over 46% of total world arms spending. Before World War II it spent almost nothing on defense and hardly anyone paid any income taxes. You can´t have big wars without big government. Such big expenditures are now threatening to harm the national economy. How did this situation come to be? In this book you´ll learn how in the critical 20 years after World War II the United States changed from being a continental democratic republic to a global imperial superpower. Since then nothing has ever been the same again. In this book you will discover this secret history of the United States that formed the basis of the world we live in today. By buying this book you will discover: How the end of European colonialism created a power vacuum that the United States used to create a new type of world empire backed by the most powerful military force in human history. Why the Central Intelligence Agency was created and used to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations when the United States Constitution had no mechanism for such imperial activities. How national security bureaucrats got President Harry Truman to approve of a new wild budget busting arms race after World War II that is still going on to this day. Why President Eisenhower really gave his famous warning against the ´´military-industrial complex.´´ Why during the Kennedy administration the nuclear arms race almost led to the end of the world during the Cuban Missile Crisis. How President Kennedy tried to deal with what had grown into a ´´permanent government´´ of power elite national security bureaucrats in the executive branch of the federal government that had become more powerful than the individual president himself. 1.

How Everything Became War and the Military Beca...

The first serious book to examine what happens when the ancient boundary between war and peace is erased. Once, war was a temporary state of affairs - a violent but brief interlude between times of peace. Today America´s wars are everywhere and forever: Our enemies change constantly and rarely wear uniforms, and virtually anything can become a weapon. As war expands, so does the role of the US military. Today military personnel don´t just ´´kill people and break stuff´´. Instead they analyze computer code, train Afghan judges, build Ebola isolation wards, eavesdrop on electronic communications, develop soap operas, and patrol for pirates. You name it, the military does it. Rosa Brooks traces this seismic shift in how America wages war from an unconventional perspective - that of a former top Pentagon official who is the daughter of two antiwar protesters and a human rights activist married to an army Green Beret. Her experiences led her to an urgent warning: When the boundaries around war disappear, we risk destroying America´s founding values and the laws and institutions we´ve built - and undermining the international rules and organizations that keep our world from sliding toward chaos. If Russia and China have recently grown bolder in their foreign adventures, it´s no accident; US precedents have paved the way for the increasingly unconstrained use of military power by states around the globe. Meanwhile we continue to pile new tasks onto the military, making it increasingly ill prepared for the threats America will face in the years to come. By turns a memoir; a work of journalism; a scholarly exploration into history, anthropology, and law; and a rallying cry, How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything transforms the familiar into the alien, showing us that the culture we inhabit is reshaping us in ways we may suspect but don´t really understand. It´s the kind of book that will leave you moved, astonished, an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gabra Zackman, Rosa Brooks - introduction.

Some fairy tales start after midnight. The crown prince and I have nothing in common. He´s a rugged, battle-hardened soldier who spent four years in the Royal Guard, an elite military unit. I met the king and queen for the first time wearing leggings and a sweatshirt. But there´s the way he looks at me. Like he knows every dirty thought I´ve had about him - and he likes them. There´s the way my pulse skyrockets every time his hand brushes mine. I´m the ambassador´s daughter. I know better than to mess around with a foreign head of state. But I don´t know how long I can resist. Not all princes are charming. I spent years in the Royal Guard, our most elite military unit, fighting like hell so I could rule one day - not so I could give my father an heir with some well-bred rich girl. I have a f--king country to run. My love life can take a back seat. It´s not like I´ve ever met a girl I had to have - until her. I can´t stop thinking about the way she laughs, about how she might taste. My father´s threatening to strip me of my title if I touch her, but she makes me want to break every one of my own rules. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lidia Dornet, Will Thorne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/007079/bk_tant_007079_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
