Life in W.W. II Germany (Collier's, 1943)

This COLLIER'S article illustrates well the gloom that hung over the German home front of 1943:

"Nobody escapes war service in Germany. Children serve in air-raid squads; women work very hard...The black market flourishes everywhere. More fats are required, as are fruits and vegetables, for the people's strength is declining. A report I have seen of Health Minister Conti shows that the mortality rate for some diseases rose 49 percent in 1941 - 1942."

'They Saw Hamburg Die' (Collier's Magazine, 1943)

A 1943 article that was cabled from Stockholm, Sweden relaying assorted eyewitness accounts of the Allied bombing campaign over the German city of Hamburg in 1943:

"The people of Germany have now learned, through the terror-filled hours of sleepless nights and days, that air mastery , the annihilating blitz weapon of the Nazis in 1939 and 1940, has been taken over by by the Allies...The most terrible of these punches has been the flood of nitroglycerin and phosphorus that in five days and nights destroyed Hamburg."

The witnesses were all escaped Scandinavian laborers who had been working in that city.

It was an Englishman nick-named "Bomber Harris" who planned and organized the nightly raids over Nazi Germany: click here to read about him.

Clemenceau and the Treaty Violations (The Literary Digest, 1922)

Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) served as one of France's wartime Premieres (1917-1920). The following is an excerpt from his "letter to the American people" imploring them to share in his outrage concerning Germany's open contempt for their obligations agreed to under the Versailles Treaty. Clemenceau would die seven years later, fully convinced that another devastating war with Germany was just around the corner.

Versailles Treaty Violations (Literary Digest, 1936)

Attached is an interesting article that announced the Nazi march into the Rhineland as well as the island of Hegoland. The journalist also listed various other Versailles Treaty violations:

*"The treaty said that Germany should have no troops in the Rhineland. On March 7 of this year, they marched in.

*The treaty said that Germany should never have a conscript army. On March 16 of this year, conscription was announced by Chancellor Hitler.

*It said that Germany should have no military aviation. She has it.

*It said that the Great German General Staff should be abolished. It was never disbanded.

*Violations of the Versailles Treaty began, in fact, a week before it was signed."

The Emergence of a New World Power (The New Republic, 1922)

Having studied the global power structure that came into place following the carnage of the First World War, British philosopher Bertrand Russel (1872 - 1970; Nobel Prize for Literature, 1950) was surprised to find that the most dominate nation left standing was not one of the European polities that had fought the war from start to finish - but rather the United States: a nation that had participated in only the last nineteen months of the war.

The Water-Colors of John Marin (VanityFair, 1922)

When Fifth Avenue's Montross Gallery launched an exhibit featuring over one hundred creations by the American painter John Marin (1870 - 1953) in the winter of 1922, "art voyager" and all-around well-respected critic Paul Rosenfeld (1890 - 1946) was present, and very shortly put pen to paper in order to heap many bon-mots upon the man and his work:

"He applies his wash with the directness of impulse that is supposed to be discoverable only in the work of small children. One racks one's brain for memory of a water-color painter who reveals in every stroke of his brush a more uninhibited urge outward."

Japan's China Poicy (Literary Digest, 1935)

"What was called a Japanese 'Monroe Doctrine for Asia' whereby Japan would wield dominance there, especially in Chinese affairs, was announced last April, and drew the immediate attention of the world's press."

"In the last days of this January a following-up of this intention was seen in a series of talks at Nanking between Chiang Kai-shek, President and Generalissimo of the Nationalist Government of China, and Lieutenant-General Soshiyuki Suzuki, Japanese military representative at Shanghai; and among Akira Ariyoshi, Japanese Minister to China, and General Chiang and Premiere Wang Ching-wei."

Henry Travers as 'Clarence the Guardian Angel' (Stage Magazine, 1937)

Ten years prior to being cast in the roll as George Baily's guardian angel, "Clarence", the actor Henry Travers (1874 1965) appeared in the Broadway play "You Can't Take it With You". Playing the part of "Grandpa Sycamore", he was singled out for praise by the editors of "Stage Magazine"; the review is attached herein.

The Rise of Oral Roberts (Coronet Magazine, 1955)

When this article about the media-savvy preacher Oral Roberts (1918 2009) hit the newsstands in 1955, his television program was less than a year old, and yet his name was already a household word in many corners of the United States. His sermons were heard every Sunday on a radio show that was broadcast by over two hundred outlets across the fruited plane and he lorded over a film production company that produced movies seen on almost 100 television stations. Indeed, Robert's ministry/corporation employed hundreds of people on its payroll, owned a Tulsa office building and a large swath of Oklahoma real estate and the thirty-seven year old preacher had even grander plans for the future.

The editors at CORONET recognized that Oral Roberts was not your average minister, who was simply contented to preside over thirty full pews every week; they labeled him a "businessman-preacher" and subtly pointed out that the man's detractors were many and his flashy attire unseemly for a member of clergy:

"God doesn't run a breadline...I make no apology for buying the best we can afford. The old idea that religious people should be poor is nonsense."

A Puttee Cartoon (The Stars and Stripes, 1918)

The Doughboys were grateful to be issued European spiral-puttees in place of their canvas gaiters -which did them no good whatever in the dampness of Northern Europe; however, as the attached W.W. I photographs so clearly indicate (as does this cartoon by Walgren), not many Yanks were as proficient at wrapping them as the upper brass had hoped.
