The German War

The German War – Arthur Conan Doyle This book contains nine essays upon different phases of the world-drama which has made Conan Doyle’s lifetime memorable. He himself thought them unworthy of republication, were it not that at such a time every smallest thing which may help to clear up a doubt, to elucidate the justice of the British cause, or to accentuate the desperate need of national effort, should be thrown into the scale. Included are: I. The Causes of the War II. The World-War Conspiracy III. The Devil’s Doctrine IV. The Great German Plot V. The “Contemptible Little Army” VI. A Policy of Murder VII. Madness VIII. Great Britain and the Next War IX. Afterthoughts Format: Paperback. The German… Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

The Great Boer War

The Great Boer War – Arthur Conan Doyle Arthur Conan Doyle states the case against himself with entire fairness in the preface to his “The Great Boer War.” He wrote the volume partly in England and partly on the steamer in passage, finishing it in Bloemfontein while professionally engaged during the epidemic among the wounded soldiers there. “Often,” he says, “the only documents which I had to consult were the wounded officers and men who were under our care.” Elsewhere he speaks of the volume being “compiled with as much accuracy as is attainable at this date.” But the history, such as it is, has commanded the highest praise in England, and it seems to be designed exclusively for British… Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

The War in South Africa

The War in South Africa – Arthur Conan Doyle “The War in South Africa: Its Cause and Conduct” is a statement of the British case. Dr. Doyle does not pretend that the right was absolutely on one side, nor that the British campaign has been above criticism. His contention is that the British Government did its best to avoid war, and that the British army did its best to wage it with humanity. He considers the various charges brought against the British soldiers, the management of the concentration camps, and the cases of farm-burning, and his conclusions amount, on the whole, to a vindication of the British army. Format: Paperback. The War in South Africa. ISBN: 9783849688899 Available at amazon.com… Read more.../Mehr lesen ...
