This Hallowed Ground by Bruce Catton Book Summary:
The classic one-volume history of the American Civil War simultaneously captures the dramatic scope and intimate experience of that epic struggle, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Bruce Catton. Covering events from the prelude of the conflict to the death of Lincoln, Catton blends a gripping narrative with deep, yet unassuming, scholarship to bring the war alive on the page in an almost novelistic way. It is this gift for narrative that led contemporary critics to compare this book to War and Peace, and call it a “modern Iliad.” Now over fifty years old, This Hallowed Ground remains one of the best-loved and admired general Civil War books: a perfect introduction to readers beginning their exploration of the conflict, as well as a thrilling analysis and reimagining of its events for experienced students of the war. Includes maps.
Treading on Hallowed Ground by C. Christine Fair,Sumit Ganguly Book Summary:
After America's Iraq adventure devolved into a debacle, a chorus of commentators and analysts noted that the U.S. military had no plan to fight a counterinsurgency campaign. Given the failure of conventional tactics, America in the last two years has redoubled its efforts to develop a new strategy to fight the Iraqi insurgency, and has gone so far to place our leading counterinsurgency expert, General David Petraeus, in charge of the Iraq theater. In sum, there seems to be a growing consensus that for better or worse, counterinsurgency will be a core tactic in future American military campaigns. Iraq, of course, presents special problems to the U.S. because of the intensity of religious belief and sectarianism. How do we fight against an insurgency that so often strategically positions itself on 'hallowed ground'--mosques and shrines? Yet Iraq is not unique. As the contributors to Treading on Hallowed Ground show, counterinsurgency efforts on religiously contentious terrain is a widespread phenomenon in recent times, ranging from North Africa to Central and Southeast Asia. Here, C. Christine Fair and Sumit Ganguly have assembled an impressive group of experts to explore the most important counterinsurgency efforts in sacred spaces in our era: churches in Israel, mosques and shrines in Iraq, the Sikh Golden Temple in India, mosques and temples in Kashmir, the Krue Se Mosque in Thailand, and the Grand Mosque in Saudi Arabia. Taken together, the essays comprise the first comprehensive account of this increasingly pivotal component of contemporary war.
The Politics of Hallowed Ground by Mario Gonzalez,Elizabeth Cook-Lynn Book Summary:
This book is the powerful story of the ongoing struggle of indigenous Americans in the twentieth century United States and of its shift in focus from traditional battlefield and massacre sites to federal courtrooms and the halls of Congress. The Politics of Hallowed Ground includes excerpts from the diary kept by Mario Gonzalez, the attorney for the Sioux Nation in its struggle for recognition of the Wounded Knee Massacre site as a national monument. Gonzalez's personal record of the struggle is coupled with commentary by Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, a Native American writer who places the work in its historical context. Together, the two voices will draw the reader into far more than the continuing struggle of the Sioux people to achieve justice. The book covers Sioux history from before the Wounded Knee tragedy to modern times, through the Sioux Nation's long and often rancorous dialogue with the U.S. government over control of South Dakota's Black Hills, traditional Sioux lands recognized by treaty in 1877 and never forfeited or sold. After reading a 13-year-old survivor's narrative of what happened at Wounded Knee and the list of the dead and wounded, readers will find it difficult not to share the Sioux perspective. "Provocative and compelling with its raw incisive written commentary by a man who is trained as a lawyer but still views his world through tribal lenses." -- Leonard R. Bruguier, Director of the Institute of American Indian Studies, University of South Dakota "By far the most moving, most compelling book I have read about the Sioux and their ongoing struggle to come to grips with history. Gonzalez and Cook-Lynn let us see the gut-wrenching realities that people who work to make a difference face." - Robert Allen Warrior, author of Tribal Secrets: Recovering American Indian Intellectual Traditions

Hallowed Ground by Michael Taylor Book Summary:
If you search the scripture, you will find that there is a place where every man can meet his maker and that place is on Hallowed Ground. It was no accident that the believers written of in the Bible had a much closer relationship with God than many of us, if not all of us, do today. God's word repeatedly emphasizes that it was their obedience that was the key, for God will not allow the rebellious to remain in His presence. Isaiah 59: 1-2 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Since it would be impossible for anyone to live a life of continual obedience and true faith towards God without having experienced the new birth, this work was created to explain the highly misunderstood process of true conversion, the marks of the new birth, and the fundamentals of the Christian Faith.
On Hallowed Ground by Bill McWilliams Book Summary:
“Brilliantly reveals the extraordinary courage of those who fought the final, bitter, bloody, costly days of the Korean War” (Gen. Jack I. Gregory, USAF Ret.). By the summer of 1953, the Korean War had long since reached a stalemate. As peace negotiations dragged on, units of the US 7th Infantry Division rebuilt the defenses of Hill 255, one of numerous outposts in front of the Main Line of Resistance extending across the peninsula. Better known by its nickname, Pork Chop Hill, the outpost had twice been the scene of some of the fiercest fighting of the spring. Now, the soldiers tasked with its rebuilding and defense hoped they would not be the last men to die in what had already become known as “the Forgotten War.” On the night of July 6th, under the cover of a heavy monsoon rainstorm, forces of the Chinese 23rd Army attacked. For five hellish days, the opposing forces engaged in devastating artillery assaults, brutal hand-to-hand fighting, and round-the-clock attacks and counterattacks. Less than three weeks after the smoke on Pork Chop Hill cleared, the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. On Hallowed Ground is the riveting story of this epic battle. Drawing on previously classified documents, interviews, and letters from survivors, author Bill McWilliams details the strategy and tactics behind the conflict and pays stirring tribute to the heroic soldiers and medics who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to hold “the Chop.”
On Hallowed Ground by Robert M. Poole Book Summary:
On Hallowed Ground opens with the long-delayed funeral of four servicemen, brought home for final honors at Arlington National Cemetery almost forty years after they disappeared in Vietnam. To understand how this tradition of extraordinary care for our war dead began, Robert Poole traces the founding of Arlington Cemetery on what had been the family plantation of Robert E. Lee. After resigning his commission in the U.S. Army, Lee left Arlington to command the Army of Northern Virginia. Arlington, strategic to the defense of Washington, D.C., became a U.S. Army headquarters and a cemetery for indigent Civil War soldiers before Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton made it the new national cemetery. Initially, there was no honor attached to being buried at Arlington; this began to change after the war, as the Union gathered thousands of hastily-buried casualties from nearby battlefields and reinterred them at Arlington, where they received the honors of a grateful nation. But the rites, rituals, and reverence associated with Arlington evolved over the next hundred years, paid through the blood of those who fought in the Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Cold War, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraq and Afghanistan. Robert Poole paints an intimate, behind-the-scenes picture of the history and day-to-day operations of Arlington National Cemetery.

On Hallowed Ground by Wanda Burse Book Summary:
On Hallowed Ground was inspired by the everyday sights and sounds that encompass life on earth. Too often we pass by the familiar, the mundane, the common, with hardly a thought. All the poems in this collection have come from sitting with creation - sometimes for brief moments and sometimes for extended periods. As I sat with creation, inviting it into my soul, savouring its life and vitality, the words came. These poems are offered as the feast of those savoured moments....

Can the five-man team, with their modern weapons, take the place of entire regiments somehow missing from the battles? Or will this twist be too much for them? About the Author: Thomas J.

Hallowed Ground by Cindy Ziperman Book Summary:
I was on the cross I was on the cross, and you took me down You have trampled my blood Lift me up Lift me high for all to see For vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. HIS DEADLY WOUND WILL BE HEALED! Nebuchadnezzar, ruler over Babylon, "Thou art the head of gold." Ruler = head - for head in the above means ruler according to the Strong's Concordance. Rev. 13, "(v. 1) And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads [or 7 rulers] and ten horns . . . (v. 2) the dragon gave him his power, and his SEAT, and great authority. And I saw one [or the "first," esp. in coming] of his heads AS it were wounded to death [the "first" in coming who will take "priority" of the 7 leaders/heads will be as it were wounded to death. In other words, he doesn't die just his leadership/head. Also, what is John talking about in Rev. 13:2 . . . the beast's rule hence his seat! Netanyahu, the first in coming of the 7 leaders has temporarily lost his seat.] . . . and his deadly wound was healed." Rev. 17:10 speaks of the rise and fall of kings. Verse 11 continues speaking of the Antichrist, "And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." At the time he was prophesied over to be the Antichrist, Benjamin Netanyahu was in office.
