"'A Friendly Invasion', released in 1990, marked fifty years of American military activity in Newfoundland and Labrador. It celebrated the important events and highlights of that 'occupation'; the location and establishment of bases and outposts; the interaction of military and civilian personnel.

What couldn't be covered in depth, due to the focus of the book, was the impact those serving on the bases and outposts had upon the life of the communities in which they served. They helped in community fund-raising; sang in church choirs; played in, and helped advance local orchestras and theatre groups; and, through marriage, became part of 25,000 Newfoundland and Labrador families." - from the dustjacket.

1. Transformation of Our Lifestyles;
2. The U.S. Army and Air Force at Pepperrell;
3. The U.S. Navy at Argentia and Elsewhere;

Lois MacDonald Cooper is one of those women.A 23-year-old resident of Ottawa when she joined the Red Cross to go overs eas in August of 1943, Mrs. Cooper was part of a contingent of over six hundred women who served their country with great pride and patriotism.

18 CROSBY, Travis L. Impact of Civilian Evacuatrion in the Second World War. First Edition in dustjacket
Croom Helm, London / Sydney / Dover, New Hampshire, 1986, ISBN:0709934335 
CROSBY, Travis L. The Impact of Civilian Evacuatrion in the Second World War. London / Sydney / Dover, New Hampshire : Croom Helm, (1986). First Edition. Pp (12),1-176,(4). Index. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "In the first few days of the Second World War several hundred thousand British children were evacuated from the major cities to provincial towns and rural villages. This book records the experience of the evacuees and investigates the social impact of this huge movement. It charts the evolution of the governments evacuation policy from its origins and examines its implementation and success. It also suggests some important side effects upon post-war social planning in Britain. Because the evacuation disrupted the schooling of thousands of children the book takes a particular look at its impact upon education. The traditional view of the evacuation has been to portray it as an outgrowth of a broadly based humanitarian movement securing the safety of Britain's children from the terrors of war. It was also widely believed to have been an opportunity for bringing together diverse and conflicting strands in British society. The book challenges this somewhat idealistic view of the evacuation and uncovers many areas of tension between the evacuees and their rural hosts. It also demonstrates that the most important effect of this massive war time migration between urban ghettos and the counties was the opportunity it gave for a process of social comparison on a grand scale."

20 FEIFER, George PERRY, Matthew, Admiral Breaking Open Japan : Commodore Perry, Lord Abe, and American Imperialism in 1853.
Smithsonian Books / Collins, New York, 2006, ISBN:9780060884321 
FEIFER, George. Breaking Open Japan : Commodore Perry, Lord Abe, and American Imperialism in 1853. (New York) : Smithsonian Books / Collins, (2006). First Printing. Pp [i]-xx,(2),[1]-389,(5). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth spine, tan cloth boards, black lettering to spine. "On July 8, 1853, the four warships of America's East Asia Squadron anchored at Uraga, twenty-seven miles south of the Japanese capital, then called Edo. The ships had come to pry open Japan after her two-and-a-half centuries of isolation and after years of intense planning by Commodore CPerry, the squadron commander. Unabashedly imperialist, Perry, his vision grounded in the certainty ofAmerican good, was determined to get his way— largely by prompting fear of his very big guns. Perry's cloaking of imperial impulse in humanitarian pu rpose was fully matched by Japanese self-deception. High among the country's articles of faith was the certainty of its protection by heavenly power. A distinguished Japanese scholar argued in 1811 that "Japanese differ completely from and are superior to the peoples of . . . all other countries of the world." The superior people nevertheless trembled at the threat of Western domination or even colonizing. So began one of history's greatest political and cultural clashes. In Breaking Open Japan, George Feifer brings thedrama to life as never before. At its heart were two formidable men who in many ways embodied their very different societies: thrusting Commodore Per ry and genial, manipulative Lord Masahiro Abe, who as the head of the Shogun's advisory council was Japan's real decision maker and political authority. Providing a fascinating account of "sealed" Japan, Feifer shows that Perry's aggressive handling of his mission had far-reaching, sometimes tragic consequences for that country— and for the United States— well into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries." - from the dj.
