    Brought together for the first time, one of the most important collections of Civil War letters is that of Francis Channing Barlow. A young intellectual from Massachusetts, Barlow was a successful lawyer in New York City and friends with such people as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Winslow Homer's family when he went off to war. Leaving his wife hours after their marriage, Barlow probably never contemplated the conversion he would undergo.Originally commissioned a lieutenant and untrained in military science, he ended the war as one of the North's premier combat generals. Though Barlow entered the service with nascent leadership qualities, he left it with a honed sense of his own authority. More importantly, Barlow had transformed from a contemplative man of society to a vigorous figure engaged with life and politics. Barlow's letters, covering the period from 1861 to 1864, not only provide a rich description of battle experiences, but also offer insight into an intellectual civilian learning the realities of war and the burdens of command.Barlow suffered many privations, including two battlefield wounds and an exhaustive collapse following the death of his wife while she nursed Federal soldiers. Barlow played a critical role in the Peninsula Campaign and in delivering a decisive charge at Antietam, sustaining a grievous wound that ensured his promotion to brigadier general. At Gettysburg - his first battle in command of a division - Barlow deployed his men in an exposed position, a controversial decision that cost him another wound and the defeat of his troops. After he recuperated, Barlow led a division through the 1864 campaign toward Richmond, earning a reputation for being a strict disciplinarian and leading his soldiers in the famous charge against the Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania.

    These fifteen journeys—fourteen of them within Poland—take six years, 1940–1946. The distances vary. Sometimes they are minimal, as short as a two-stop bus ride in a city, or a twenty-minute walk, and sometimes they are longer—much longer. The traveler is a young girl, who we meet at age seven. Along the way, she loses her home, her family, her name, her hair, and finally, her fear.Two things help her on her journeys during these difficult years: some lessons from her parents and a large share of luck, which never deserts her.
  • 1941: The Year That Keeps Returning

    A New York Review Books OriginalThe distinguished Croatian journalist and publisher Slavko Goldstein says, “Writing this book about my family, I have tried not to separate what happened to us from the fates of many other people and of an entire country.” 1941: The Year That Keeps Returning is Goldstein’s astonishing historical memoir of that fateful year—when the Ustasha, the pro-fascist nationalists, were brought to power in Croatia by the Nazi occupiers of Yugoslavia. On April 10, when the German troops marched into Zagreb, the Croatian capital, they were greeted as liberators by the Croats. Three days later, Ante Pavelic, the future leader of the Independent State of Croatia, returned from exile in Italy and Goldstein’s father, the proprietor of a leftist bookstore in Karlovac—a beautiful old city fifty miles from the capital—was arrested along with other local Serbs, communists, and Yugoslav sympathizers. Goldstein was only thirteen years old, and he would never see his father again. More than fifty years later, Goldstein seeks to piece together the facts of his father’s last days. The moving narrative threads stories of family, friends, and other ordinary people who lived through those dark times together with personal memories and an impressive depth of carefully researched historic details. The other central figure in Goldstein’s heartrending tale is his mother—a strong, resourceful woman who understands how to act decisively in a time of terror in order to keep her family alive. From 1941 through 1945 some 32,000 Jews, 40,000 Gypsies, and 350,000 Serbs were slaughtered in Croatia. It is a period in history that is often forgotten, purged, or erased from the history books, which makes Goldstein’s vivid, carefully balanced account so important for us today—for the same atrocities returned to Croatia and Bosnia in the 1990s. And yet Goldstein’s story isn’t confined by geographical boundaries as it speaks to the dangers and madness of ethnic hatred all over the world and the urgent need for mutual understanding.
