Joe Garba's Legacy

Joe Garba's Legacy - Fatima Nduka-Eze Summary

Joe Garbas Legacy Selected Speeches and Lectures On National Governance, Confronting Apartheid and Foreign Policy Joseph Nanven Garba came to international attention in July 1975, as a member of Supreme Military Council in Nigerias new military government. Then a Colonel, the commander of the Brigade of Guards and a distinguished career officer, fate, which some call luck, thrust upon him the role of Commissioner (Minister) for External Affairs, after initially being slotted for the Transport portfolio. A diplomatic neophyte, Garba, who characterized himself as the most undiplomatic soldier there was, would learn the finer points and also the caprices of international diplomacy on the job. He did well, serving as Nigerias foreign minister, from 1975-1978 and consequently holding key diplomatic, academic and political positions - all which offered him the unfettered pulpit to speak assertively on national and international issues within his remit. When Garba spoke, people listened; for he was eloquent, had the personality and did not dodge heady issues. He had gone from an unknown quantity, whose appointment as Foreign Minister, had elicited from the Nigerian intelligentsia the terse reaction, Garba Who? to become a skillful and renowned diplomat and an assured voice of Nigeria. The thirty-two speeches and lectures in this volume represent just a fraction of the many he delivered. They are presented in remembrance and as a befitting legacy on the tenth anniversary of his passing.

Joseph Wheeler: Uniting the Blue and the Gray

Joseph Wheeler: Uniting the Blue and the Gray Pdf/ePub eBook


Joseph Wheeler: Uniting the Blue and the Gray - Anders M. Kinney Summary

This text analyzes and evaluates the participation of Joseph Wheeler in the Spanish-American War. Southerners believe that Wheeler had a significant impact on the unification of the North and South during this period. Second, this historiographic writing acquaints the secondary teacher of history with the importance of the war in America's move toward imperialism. This research suggests there is a relationship between Joseph Wheeler and the healing of the Civil War wounds. This research investigates two different approaches to Wheeler's involvement in the war. The first approach involved the historical interpretation that McKinley's decision to appoint Wheeler as a Volunteer General was based on political expediency and not on ability. The second approach involved the examination of General Wheeler's primary documents and their interpretations of his participation in the war. Results of this research showed the following: (1) Joseph Wheeler's involvement in the Spanish-American War hastened the healing of North/South wounds; (2) Wheeler's involvement in the overall scheme of the war was more than token; and (3) Wheeler was perceived as an American hero by all regions after the war.

J. Patton Anderson, Confederate General

J. Patton Anderson, Confederate General Pdf/ePub eBook


J. Patton Anderson, Confederate General - James W. Raab Summary

J. Patton Anderson was from Florida, the seceding state that was referred to as the “tadpole” of the Confederate states, but nevertheless he was one of the Confederacy’s great military leaders. Anderson oversaw a large plantation, Casa Bianca, and his views meshed with secessionist views sufficiently for him to be elected as a delegate to the Secession Conference held in Montgomery, Alabama. After Florida seceded, President Davis appointed Anderson as a Brigadier General. Anderson engaged the enemy in the Western theater for four years under his mentor, General Braxton Bragg, who advanced him to Major General in command of the District of Florida. This is a complete biography of Anderson’s life, including his service in the Mexican War, his appointment as United States Marshal to the distant Washington Territory, his adventure (with his wife, Etta Adair) of taking the 1853 Washington Territory census by canoe, his election as territorial delegate to Washington City, and his entire Civil War service. J. Patton and Etta Anderson’s affectionate correspondence is an important aspect of this biography, revealing what it was like to be alive at this time and what it took to keep their family intact.

The Crux Of The Fight: General Joseph Lawton Collins' Command Style

The Crux Of The Fight: General Joseph Lawton Collins' Command Style Pdf/ePub eBook


The Crux Of The Fight: General Joseph Lawton Collins' Command Style - LTC Theo K. Moore Summary

This monograph examines General J. Lawton Collins' career and argues that his command style was characterized by technical and tactical competence, the practical ability to lead from the front and sound judgment. This monograph examines these key factors in three subsections. General Collins gained his technical and tactical competence by theoretical preparation as a student and instructor. He first demonstrated the ability to position himself at the critical point on the battlefield as the commander of the 25th Infantry Division during the Guadalcanal Campaign in January 1943. As the commander of the VII Corps during the Allies' Campaign in northwest Europe from 1944 to 1945, he refined this ability. Finally, he developed sound judgment while performing key postings both during the interwar period and during the Second World War. This monograph shows how General J. Lawton Collins' command style translated into action and made him such an effective combat leader.

Legacy of Secrecy

Legacy of Secrecy Pdf/ePub eBook


Legacy of Secrecy - Lamar Waldron,Thom Hartmann Summary

From the authors of Ultimate Sacrifice—”Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives” (Vanity Fair). John F. Kennedy’s assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963, the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan’s exposure could have led to a nuclear confrontation with Russia, but the cover-up prevented a full investigation into Kennedy’s assassination, a legacy of secrecy that would impact American politics and foreign policy for the next forty-five years. It also allowed two men who confessed their roles in JFK’s murder to be involved in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. Exclusive interviews and newly declassified files from the National Archives document in chilling detail how three mob bosses were able to prevent the truth from coming to light until now. “They’ve done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory.” —Ron Rosenbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Explaining Hitler “A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the US’s most personal tragedies.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Merryweather Pdf/ePub eBook


Merryweather - Dan Ryan Summary

Merryweather USMC: is a story about two young men in 1833, living in South Carolina. One would become a United States Marine Corps General, the other an admiral in the United States Navy. This book describes in vivid detail what may have occurred in the United States Marine Corps between 1837 and 1867. The narration is by the Marine Corps General, born in Port Royal, South Carolina. He will serve in Florida during the Seminole Wars, Mexico, and finally the Civil War. He is wounded at Gettysburg and is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. He is promoted to Commandant of the Marine Corps and he occupies the highest USMC office in Washington D.C. The historical events of 1937 through 1967, are carefully followed. The imagination of the author provides rich characters in powerful settings from the battlefields of Mexico to those in America The time old love story between a man and woman is woven throughout the book when the general meets the daughter of John Randolph Adams. The Adams are those from the time of the Mayflower, two US Presidents and statesmen of America. The general and Miss Adams are like oil and water. He can not stand her, and she is convinced that this is the man she will marry. Scenes are set carefully with attention to accurate research of the low country of South Carolina as well as our Nation's Capital circa 1837 - 1867. The People's Standard History of the United States written by Edward S. Ellis and published by Western Book Syndicate and copyrighted by the Woolfall Company have provided background materials, maps of the period and needed information on how the federal government was organized and functioned during this period of our history. Dear Readers, This is a story of Americas admirals and generals from 1833 to 1877. These were trying times in the history of our country. In 1822, a young man was accepted into the Carlisle Military College of South Carolina. Another was accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point. One became an admiral, the other a general. One lived in Port Royal, South Carolina, where he worked on his father's shrimp boats. The other was born on a plantation south of Beaufort, South Carolina and sailed aboard his father's merchant ships, they were both in tune with the sea. So when the two institutions asked for their selection of military service, they choose the Navy. One became an admireal, the other a brigadier general in the United Staes Marine Corps. This is a work of fiction. Its location was inspired by my home which I leased on Dataw Island from 2003 through 2008. The next barrier island in the chain is called Pollowanna Island and if was chosen as the fictional setting for the Caldwell family plantation. To my knowledge, there was never a Cladwell living in Beaufort. The fictional account is based, in part, on the lives of the Barnwell and Bull families who lived during these times. They owned the homes described along Bay Street. And, yes, they did have a Vice Admiral in the family. The historical events which are outlined in this book all took place. The dates and locations are accurate, but the characters are the products of my overactice imagination. Some persons mentioned, however, are real. You can not write about this period of our history without making reference to commanding admirals or generals. Sincerely, Dan Ryan
