Doesnt it just show you, when reading Malins account of the film he took at Hawthorn redoubt on the 1st July, just how much of his film was censored by the military.

What a shame all this genuine film of the battle was destroyed and never kept.

On War – Carl Von Clausewitz

This on-line document was originally published in German by Dümmlers Verlag, Berlin, 1832 . This site presents the complete translation by Colonel J.J. Graham as published by N. Trübner, London, 1873. The material is presented in eight “books” with several chapters in each book. On War is a classic document which attempts to understand total war as an instrument of national policy. This book has stimulated generations of soldiers, statesmen, and intellectuals for generations. [CEF Study Group – Updated Oct 2008]


Stranded in Russia by Roger Crownover

The website is based on the January-February 1999 article by Paul D. Mehney and presents 16 pages in a tabloid-magazine style on the Polar Bear Expedition to northern Russia after the end of the Great War. In the following pages of this uniquely Michigan story, Roger Crownover looks at how Detroiters lobbied to bring their boys Michigan home. You also will learn why President Woodrow Wilson committed American troops, soon known as the Polar Bears, to this action, and how the Polar Bears viewed Russia, its people and their experience. Finally, we offer an assortment of historic pictures, Polar Bear uniforms and artifacts from the extensive collection of Michigan’s Own Military and Space Museum in Frankenmuth.
