The modernist historiographical model of the Great War neglects such traditional modes of thought as religious response to battle. Drawing on the testimony of over 500 British and American soldiers, Schweitzer provides an in-depth account of topics such as soldiers' prayers and biblical readings, as well as religious doubts. As a detailed snapshot of religion during the war, this study provides a crucial preamble to studies of the legacy of the Great War. The lack of a satisfactory scholarly study has left interpretation of the role that religion played in soldiers' lives to the pronouncements of their contemporaries who often either viewed World War I as an opportunity to spark a religious revival or as an event that crushed religious faith. Schweitzer argues that neither of these interpretations is accurate, and he hopes to replace them with a model that arranges responses on a spectrum ranging from absolute faith in God to atheism. Based on extensive archival research, this study establishes a detailed model of the spiritual lives of British and American soldiers during the war. After sketching this spiritual history, he concludes that both British and American soldiers were more religious than previous writings have indicated.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

My Father Frank S. Iriam signed up the same day as Germany declared war in 1914. In Valcartier they announced that a sniper group was about to be formed. Frank signed up immediately and this book describes some of his experiences as a sniper. Do to some prior military service in Halifax he had been promoted to Sargent in Kenora and he maintained that rank through out the war. Frank describes the fact that he was able to mentally beat the shell shock he was starting to suffer all on his own. He spent three years seven months in the front lines being wounded by machine gun fire during the battle of Ameins where the allies chased the Germans out of their trenches never letting them dig another. After a lengthy recovery period he got back to Kenora, his job as a Railroad Engineer and canoeing his favorite pass time.

This textbook deals with the most important items in Marine Geology, including some pioneer work. The list of topics has grown greatly in the last few decades beyond the items identified by Eugen Seibold as central and now includes prominently such things as methane and climate change; that is, the carbon cycle and the Earth system as a whole. Relevant geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological methods are shortly described. They should allow the reader to comment on new results about plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, climatological aspects, paleoceanology and the use of the sea floor. The text tries to transmit to the reader excitement of marine geological research both aboard and in modern laboratories. Basic mineralogical, geochemical, biological and other relevant data and a detailed list of books and symposia are given in an Appendix. This Introduction builds on the third edition of “The Sea Floor” by E. Seibold and W.H. Berger. While much of the original text was written by Seibold, a considerable portion of the material presented in this edition is new, taking into account the recent great shift in marine geological research, some of it with great relevance to human concerns arising in a rapidly changing world.

The influence of meteorological conditions and the physical, chemical, and mineralogical properties of fine-grained dredged material on the formation of crusts resulting from evaporative drying in confinement areas was evaluated. After decantation, the moisture content of the surface layer is equivalent to about 2.5 times the liquid limit. Evaporation of moisture during the first stage of drying is nearly the same as that from an open pan until the moisture content decreases to about 1.8 times the liquid limit. After this, drying proceeds at a rate dependent on the transport of moisture to the surface. As the material desiccates, surface cracks open. The volume shrinkage is equivalent to the volume of water evaporated as the crust forms, and evidence is given that the volume change is irreversible. Rainfall is shed from the crust and drains into the cracks, from which it can run off if channels are provided to the outflow weir. Management practices, including stirring and the removal of a thin layer of crust, produced only small increases in evaporation rate for a few days. Systems were developed to dig drainage trenches in the confinements and to remove the consolidated crust. A small dredge appears to offer the most promise for cutting deep or wide surface drainage ditches.

Explaining the physics and characteristics of power semiconductor devices, this book presents an overview of various classes of power semiconductors. It provides insight into how they work and the characteristics of the various components from the viewpoint of the user, going through all modern power semiconductor device types. The physics are explained in reasonable detail, providing the precise amount of information needed to fully understand the component's behavior in the application. Exploring the specific strengths and weaknesses of each device type, the book demonstrates how these devices fit into the system and how they will behave there.
