Dahlonega, GANovember 11, 2018—The University of North Georgia Press is pleased to announce our latest release: Give ’Way to the Right by Chris Emmett, edited by David Scott Stieghan. The book releases November 11, 2018, on the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice of World War I.

Give ’Way to the Right is the true account of Chris Emmett’s experience in World War I. Emmett joined the war effort in 1917 and was part of the American Expeditionary Forces (A. E. F.) on the Western Front, where he served in France with L Company. Written following Emmett’s discharge from the army, Give ’Way to the Right was not originally intended for public audiences. The result is an honest record of what Emmett saw in the war: men not given proper medical attention when needed, officers promoted without merit, and trenches that did little to protect the soldiers in them. Emmett’s account shows the truth of warfare to later generations that knew nothing of war. It is a memorial to the friends he lost and a reminder of what lays on a battlefield.

Editor David Scott Stieghan is the United States Army Infantry Branch Historian at Fort Benning, Georgia. He has taught history at colleges in Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia and is currently the Military History Instructor for the U. S. Army Infantry. Stieghan has worked on twenty-eight Armed Forces Radio and Television Service Military Heritage Spots, eight shows for the History Channel, nine for the Outdoor Channel, and twenty-one shows for the Military Channel as a technical advisor and Subject Matter Expert. He also served as technical advisor for the mini-series “Truman” on HBO and “Rough Riders” on TNT.

Give ’Way to the Right (978-1-940771-44-1) is a 6 x 9 paperback with 318 pages. It can be purchased through Ingram, Amazon, and other major retailers for $24.95. It includes original illustrations by Emmett as well as additional footnotes, photographs, and annotations by Stieghan. Give ’Way to the Right will make a wonderful addition to any military history library.

“The Secret Battle” Press Release

The Secret Battle
University of North Georgia Press, May 28, 2018

Dahlonega, GA—The University of North Georgia Press is pleased to release The Secret Battle by A. P. Herbert, edited by Dr. Austin Riede, out May 28, 2018.

Originally published in 1919, The Secret Battle honestly portrays the mental horrors World War I inflicted upon soldiers. Harry Penrose is an Oxford student who enlists in 1914. He’s hard working, modest, and dutiful but struggles to cope with the toll of war. During the Battle of Gallipoli, Penrose seeks refuge to avoid shellfire, but another office sees him and accuses Penrose of desertion. Court martialed and branded a coward, Penrose is betrayed by the very system for which he fought.

Though not autobiographical, Penrose and the narrator follow experiences of author A. P. Herbert, who fought in the Gallipoli Campaign. Penrose’s trial is likely based on that of Sub-Lieutenant Edwin Dyett, an officer who was court martialed and executed for desertion in 1916. Considered a literary masterpiece, The Secret Battle is an early example of war literature, showcasing the importance of a soldier’s mind as well as his body, and deserves “a permanent place in war literature” (Winston Churchill, from the 1988 Oxford University Press edition).

The Secret Battle (978-1-940771-38-0) releases May 28, 2018. It is a 6×9 paperback. Part of the UNG Press’ World War I series, it will make the perfect addition to any historian’s collection. It can be purchased through Ingram, Amazon, and other major retailers for $24.95.

The War in the Air
University of North Georgia Press, May 28, 2018

Dahlonega, GA— Nothing ever changes in Bun Hill, the simple country town where Bert Smallways lived. It’s enough that motor-bicycles crowd the road and the South of England Aero Club hosts a weekly ascent. But when Mr. Alfred Butteridge successfully flies his heavier-than-air machine from the Crystal Palace to Glasgow and back, Bert’s known-world disappears.

By chance or fate, Bert is trapped in Butteridge’s hot air balloon, then kidnapped by a German air fleet. Led by Prince Karl Albert, the German fleet crosses the Atlantic Ocean to launch the world’s first aerial attack against America. Forced into their service, Bert encounters the horror of war first-hand as human civilization collapses around him.

H. G. Wells’s foreboding futuristic novel was published in 1908. Much of his work discusses human nature in the face of warfare and includes many technological developments before they existed. This 100-year-anniversary reprint edition remembers a world before aircrafts ruled the skies. Edited by H. G. Wells scholar Aaron Worth, this reprint includes an introduction as well as additional reading recommendations.

The War in the Air (978-1-940771-30-4) releases May 28, 2018, from the University of North Georgia Press. It is a 6×9 paperback and will make a wonderful addition to any World War I collection. It can be purchased through Ingram, Amazon, and other major retailers for $24.95.
