FLASHBACK

BACK FILES

AT THE FRONT

A NECK FOR A NECK? • In 1782, just a few years into its nationhood, the United States was forced to grapple with the issue of revenge as an instrument of war.

RED SCARE IN INDOCHINA

TORTURE BY WATER • Throughout the ages, water-based forms of torture have gone by many euphemisms, but the intent has nearly always been the same.

OOPS! • Mistakes will happen, even in the military. Here are six mishaps, miscalculations, and malfunctions that prove it.

TANKS FOR THE MEMORIES • In 1918 Captain George S. Patton Jr. sent his wife, Beatrice, a blow-by-blow account of his role in the Saint-Mihiel offensive.

THE FIRESHIP

HOCUS FOCUS

LINCOLN’S MAGICIAN • In 1864 Harry Cooke performed for the president. Soon he was spying for the Union army.

THE AVIATOR • In 1914, as World War I erupted across Europe, James “Mac” McConnell knew he could no longer stay on the sidelines.

THE WASTE OF WAR • Lethal diseases have ravaged militaries across the millennia. Enemy No. 1: poor sanitation.

THEY SHOT THE WAR • An alternative newspaper for American GIs in Vietnam offered some raw glimpses into the conflict.

THE FOG FACTORY • In 1914, days after it declared war on Germany, Great Britain set up a secret propaganda bureau to help defeat the enemy.

CULTURE OF WAR

HIGHWAY TO HELL

BOURBON MAN AT BREAKNECK RIDGE • In 1944 a 30-year-old tank commander from a well-known Kentucky whiskey family made a name for himself at the Battle of Leyte.

SOMME SONG

THE RESURRECTIONIST • With They Shall Not Grow Old, director Peter Jackson has brought stunning realism to century-old footage of World War I.
