White was the first president of Cornell University, and he caused some consternation in mid-nineteenth-century America by determining that the university would not be beholden to any particular... More > school of religious or theological thought. Naturally, there were complaints and public outcries.

[Softcover] Rudyard Kipling, author of the Jungle Books, also wrote this exciting account of two years at sea during World War I. “The main principles of sea-warfare,” he begins,... More > “hold good throughout all ages… For matters of detail the Navy, to whom all days are alike, has simply returned to the practice and resurrected the spirit of old days.” This theme—that the march of time does not change the old spirit—is the leitmotif of Kipling’s narrative, balanced upon the strange threshold of modern war, wherein cavalry detachments gallop toward the beach to exchange fire with submarines and wounded destroyers ram steel battleships as their crews leap into the sea, cheering for King and country. This tale only Kipling could tell, with numerous moments of suspense and fear illustrating the true face of warfare, yet with ironic glimpses of humor including old 19th-century naval songs set to new words that make this book also a wry commentary on a warfare that changes but yet remains the same.< Less

With pick and shovel they are letting the rays of the April sun into the great ice barrier which binds together the modern quays and the old granite fortress where lie the bones of the Romanoff Czars. This barrier is already weakened; it is widely decayed, in many places thin, and everywhere treacherous; but it is, as a whole, so broad, so crystallized about old boulders, so imbedded in shallows, so wedged into crannies on either shore, that it is a great danger. P.S.--Owing to a wish to give more thorough revision to some parts of my work, it has been withheld from the press until the present date. A. D. W.

It's importance can be evaluated on the basis that an extended account on many sequential experiments, type of wars, it's operations, and explosives used/filled, etc. are furnished in detail. THE earliest record we have of the employment of an infernal machine at all resembling the torpedo of the present day, was in 1585 at the siege of Antwerp. Here by means of certain small vessels, drifted down the stream, in each of which was placed a magazine of gunpowder, to be fired either by a trigger, or a combination of levers and clockwork, an Italian engineer, Lambelli, succeeded in demolishing a bridge that the enemy had formed over the Scheldt.
