Newest Examiner Articles

by Abigail Pfeiffer on May 9, 2010

The following is a list of my most recent Examiner articles. These articles address World War I (WWI), World War II (WWII), and the Vietnam War.

  • Lullabies for Lieutenants: This is a book review of the book “Lullabies for Lieutenants: A Marine Forward Observer in Vietnam 1965-1966” by Franklin Cox.
  • The Lusitania and America in WWI: This article explores the reasons that America entered WWI. The sinking of the Lusitania is often cited as the reason that America entered WWI, even though it was sunk 2 years before America entered the war.
  • The Comet Line: During WWII there were many people who worked in resistance groups. This article highlights a Belgian resistance group that worked to save downed Allied airmen.
  • The Burma-Thailand Railway: This article examines the brutal treatment of Allied POW’s in WWII who were forced by the Japanese to build a railroad in Burma that supported the Imperial Japanese army and their war effort.

Do you think that the Lusitania was the definitive reason that America entered WWI? What other WWII resistance groups were imperative to the Allied war effort? If there are any other topics you would like to me to write about please don’t hesitate to contact me.
