The Brutality of Combat (Pathfinder Magazine, 1944)

"The shock of modern battle is so severe to nervous systems that the hair color of thousands of young men in the Pacific and European theaters of war has turned gray overnight."

Not surprisingly, the young men in question had no interest in resembling their grandfathers and so the services of a patriotic hair dye manufacturing firm were secured.

Assessing the German Winter Offensive (United States News, 1944)

The American magazines that appeared on newsstands during late November and early December of 1944 are often found to have articles anticipating life in the post-war world or tips on how to welcome your returning husband home from battle. This editorial line of thinking was put on hold in mid-December when the Germans launched their brutal counter offensive through the Ardennes Forrest in what has been remembered as the Battle of the Bulge (December 16, 1944 through January 25, 1945).

The December 29, 1944 issue of UNITED STATES NEWS is an example of the this new editorial policy. The German surprise attack caught the Allies (and the home front editors) so terribly off-guard it triggered the writing of articles that called for increasing the draft pool and openly chided the generals for relying too heavily on air power.

The Battle of the Bulge was in its thirteenth day when this article was first read. The journalist explained how the Nazis did it and took a guess as to what the far-reaching effect will be for the remainder of the war.

During the Battle Of the Bulge the Germans attempted to assassinate General Eisenhower. Read about it here...

General Douglas MacArthur ('48 Magazine)

If you've been looking for an editorial that was intended to take General MacArthur down a peg or two, you've found it. It was penned by Shelley Mydans (1915 - 2002), a journalist who was primarily known at the time for her LIFE MAGAZINE news dispatches; she found the General to be both admirable and repulsive at the same time and was thoroughly baffled as to why he was so loved on so many different continents.

Written two years before General MacArthur's stunning 1950 victory in the Korean War (the Battle of Inchon), this article makes apparent a deep-seated fear held within the senior leadership of the Democratic party that MacArthur was planning to challenge Truman in the 1948 presidential election.

The Draft Dodgers (People Today Magazine, 1950)

"With the U.S. inducting some 50,000 men a month there must necessarily be a high number of delinquents... Few draft dodgers realize that the FBI steps in when the draft board steps out of the picture. Furthermore delinquents are liable to five years imprisonment."

'Canonizing the Flapper' (Vanity Fair, 1921)

The following is an excerpt from the review of the New York production of the 1921 play, "A Bill of Divorcement" by Clemence Dane (born Winifred Ashton 1888 - 1965). With much enthusiasm, the reviewer wrote:

"We know of no better expression of the creed of the new generation than that which Clemence Dane has drawn up...".

What followed was a very short soliloquy which beautifully summed up not only the philosophy of the modern woman, but the philosophy of much the Twentieth Century.

N.Y. Court Ruled That Women Can Smoke in Public
(Hearst's Sunday American, 1917)

A brief notice from 1917 reported on the arrest of three women for smoking in the Times Square subway station in New York City.

When the socially astute, forward-thinking judge recognized that no real crime had been committed they were released, but in the high fashion world feminine tobacco abuse, these women are like Rosa Parks:

Mary Driscoll, Edna Stanley and Elsie Peterson

let their names live ever more!

News of the Armistice (The Stars and Stripes, 1918)

By the time this news was read by the American Doughboys the truce was old news, however it makes for an interesting read as it is able to impart much of the November 11, 1918 excitement that filled the streets of Paris when the news of the Armistice hit. The front-page column makes clear that many of the rumors pertaining to the German collapse could not be verified, yet affirms reports concerning the revolution in Germany, it's food shortages and the Kaiser's exile to Holland.

11/11 with the U.S. First Division (American Legion Weekly, 1919)

A 1919 article that recalled the U.S. Army's First Division Armistice Day assault in the Bois de Romaigne:

"The First Division was a pretty tired outfit. It had seen eleven months of almost continuous fighting...Rumors were around that there was going to be an armistice, but few listened and none believed. We had been bunked before."

"The artillery fire increased and the machine guns rattled. You were on outpost and you fired your rifle, just fired it at nothing in particular. Everybody was doing it. The din increased until 11 o'clock, it ended with a crash that startled you. Fini la Guerre?"

The Iwo Jima Invasion (Collier's Magazine, 1945)

Written by war correspondent Walter Davenport some thirteen months prior to taking the helm as editor-in-chief at COLLIER'S MAGAZINE, this article gives the reader a sense as to what D-plus-one looked like from the fifty yard line at the Battle of Iwo Jima (Operation Detachment: February 19 March 26, 1945):

"There is no Jap navy here to stop us; no Jap air force, either... So you see Jap? On our way up here to Iwo we flew over more supply ships, more cargo carriers. Those decks carry concrete mixers, Diesel-powered road crushers and rollers. There aren't many cliffs on Iwo to hide out in, Jap! You can't live for weeks in the crevices of Suribachi. You can't grow gardens on that rock. So, while you can still see, look down at what we're seeing: An American city, a harsh, womanless city is moving in on you."

The Flapper Prosody (Literary Digest, 1922)

More juvenile flapper verses revealing that the flapper is as old as history itself - and far more meddlesome than her male counterpart.
