2. THE TRAGEDY OF PATTON A Soldier's Date With Destiny: Could World War II's Greatest General Have Stopped the Cold War?


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

"BETTER TO FIGHT FOR SOMETHING THAN LIVE FOR NOTHING." — GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON It is 75 years since the end of WW II and the strange, mysterious death of General George S. Patton, but as in life, Patton sets off a storm of controversy. THE TRAGEDY OF PATTON: A Soldier's Date With Destiny  asks the question: Why was General Patton silenced during his service in World War II? Prevented from receiving needed supplies that would have ended the war nine months earlier, freed the death camps, and prevented Russian invasion of the Eastern Bloc, and Stalin's murderous rampage. Why was he fired as General of the Third Army and relegated to a governorship of post-war Bavaria? Who were his enemies? Was he a threat to Eisenhower, Montgomery, and Bradley? And is it possible as some say that the General's freakish collision with an Army truck, on the day before his departure for US, was not really an accident? Or was Patton not only dismissed by his peers, but the victim of an assassin's bullet at their behest? Was his personal silence necessary? Early in his life, Patton was a markedly insecure man, petrified by the notion of failing to live up to the standards of his pedigree. Patton was haunted by “several sets of ghosts” throughout his lifetime, including his martial ancestors, the great men of history and literature, and figures from his early years, especially relatives. As far as Patton saw it, his chief duty in life was to live up to — if not surpass — the military precedent set by his forebears. George Patton was driven by an innate sense of duty, both to his family’s great military tradition and to his country. He was fixated on the notion of reaching the status of a military legend, and driven by outdated notions about honor, drawing from the Greek concept of arête and medieval notions of chivalry, both of which had received a heightened level of attention in the 1800s. As a general, Patton measured himself against Alexander, Caesar and Hannibal of antiquity. Combat was, for Patton, the means by which to attain glory and secure his eternal legacy. Patton was simultaneously brilliant and deeply flawed. He lived an exciting, compulsive life, never standing still for a moment, always searching, seeking, probing. He was daring and noble on occasion, like the Greek and Roman military legends he revered. At other times he was petulant and cruel, lacking in the diplomatic grace and tact that defined many of his contemporaries, a real son-of-a-bitch (i.e. “Our Blood His Guts”: They were mocking him). Patton was the kind of guy the Allies needed to get the dirty work done on the ground, but also the guy they wanted to get rid of or silence when the fighting was over. This is hardly surprising, given how outspoken Patton was about the conduct of the war — especially its end and aftermath — and his willingness to identify the Soviet Union as the next great threat to American democracy and world peace. General George S. Patton was America's antihero of the Second World War. Orlando explores whether a man of such a flawed character could have been right about his claim that because the Allied troops, some within 200 miles of Berlin, or just outside Prague, were held back from capturing the capitals to let Soviet troops move in, the Cold War was inevitable. Patton said it loudly and often enough that he was relieved of command and silenced. Patton had vowed to “take the gag off” after the war and tell the intimate truth and inner workings about controversial decisions and questionable politics that had cost the lives of his men. Was General Patton volatile, bombastic, self-absorbed, reckless? Yes, but he was also politically astute and a brilliant military strategist who delivered badly needed wins. Questions still abound about Patton’s rise and fall.  THE TRAGEDY OF PATTON  seeks to answer them.

4. Faustian Bargain: The Soviet-German Partnership and the Origins of the Second World War


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

When Nazi Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, launching World War Two, its army seemed an unstoppable force. The Luftwaffe bombed towns and cities across the country, and fifty divisions of the Wehrmacht crossed the border. Yet only two decades earlier, at the end of World War One, Germany had been an utterly and abjectly defeated military power. Foreign troops occupied its industrial heartland and the Treaty of Versailles reduced the vaunted German army of World War One to a fraction of its size, banning it from developing new military technologies. When Hitler came to power in 1933, these strictures were still in effect. By 1939, however, he had at his disposal a fighting force of 4.2 million men, armed with the most advanced weapons in the world. How could this nearly miraculous turnaround have happened? The answer lies in Russia. Beginning in the years immediately after World War One and continuing for more than a decade, the German military and the Soviet Union--despite having been mortal enemies--entered into a partnership designed to overturn the order in Europe. Centering on economic and military cooperation, the arrangement led to the establishment of a network of military bases and industrial facilities on Soviet soil. Through their alliance, which continued for over a decade, Germany gained the space to rebuild its army. In return, the Soviet Union received vital military, technological and economic assistance. Both became, once again, military powers capable of a mass destruction that was eventually directed against one another. Drawing from archives in five countries, including new collections of declassified Russian documents, The Faustian Bargain offers the definitive exploration of a shadowy but fateful alliance.

5. Empire of Sand: How Britain Made the Middle East


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

“A story of how empires rattle along until their sheer scale makes them nonsensical . . . Reid’s very capable prose just begs to be read” ( The Scotsman ).   At the end of the First World War, Britain, and to a much lesser extent France, created the modern Middle East. The possessions of the former Ottoman Empire were carved up with scant regard for the wishes of those who lived there. Frontiers were devised and alien dynasties imposed on the populations as arbitrarily as in medieval times. From the outset, the project was destined to fail.   Conflicting and ambiguous promises had been made to the Arabs during the war but were not honored. Brief hopes for Arab unity were dashed, and a harsh belief in western perfidy persists to the present day. Britain was quick to see the riches promised by the black pools of oil that lay on the ground around Baghdad. When France, too, grasped their importance, bitter differences opened up and the area became the focus of a return to traditional enmity. The wartime allies came close to blows and then drifted apart, leaving a vacuum of which Hitler took advantage.   Working from both primary and secondary sources, Walter Reid explores Britain’s role in the creation of the modern Middle East and the rise of Zionism from the early years of the twentieth century to 1948, when Britain handed over Palestine to United Nationns control. From the decisions that Britain made has flowed much of the instability of the region and of the worldwide tensions that threaten the twenty-first century; this thought-provoking book considers how much Britain was to blame.

6. The Prince


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

A new, beautifully laid-out, easy-to-read edition of Niccolo Machiavelli 's classic work of political thought, The Prince or Il Principe . A 16th-century political treatise written by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli, it was framed as an instruction guide for new political leaders or as a "mirror for princes." The general theme of The Prince is of accepting that the aims of princes – such as glory and survival – can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. Some critics argue that this reading should not be taken at face value, however -- that Machiavelli was not so much "justifying" ends-justify-the-means morality, but portraying a current political reality rather than making any normative statements. The Prince is considered by some scholars to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, and one of the first works of political philosophy in particular, and has been extremely influential on the development of political science and political theory as academic disciplines. The Prince remains the most remembered of Machiavelli's works and one of the most widely read and assigned works of political theory. This edition is based on William K. Marriott's 1908 translation of Machiavelli's classic, originally published in 1532. Niccoló Machiavelli (1469-1527) was an Italian diplomat, politician, historian, philosopher, writer, playwright and poet of the Renaissance period, often called the father of political science. While most remembered for The Prince , and for the term "Machiavellian" coined to describe the political deceit, deviousness, and realpolitik, portrayed by the titular "prince" in his treatise, his works in political philosophy were wide and varied. His 1517 Discoures on Livy are often pointed to as foundational to the intellectually development of modern republicanism, and perhaps more closely reflecting his own normative views regarding the best polity. William K. Marriott (1847-1927) was an English businessman and merchant, most remembered today as a popular translator of Machiavelli's works into English.

8. Magna Carta: And the Disorganized Constitution of the United Kingdom of Great Britain


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

The Constitution of the United Kingdom of Great Britain is not a single specific document that can be pointed to, like the Constitution of the United States. Instead the British have developed a system of rules that establishes the political governance of the island nation. However, there are a number of documents, Acts of Parliament, and international treaties that together form the body of the Constitution of the United Kingdom. Those documents include; the Magna Carta, The Bill of Rights, 1687, the Act of Union 1707, The Act of Union 1801, and the Anglo-Irish Treaty 1928. The United Kingdom of Great Britain is widely recognized as the cradle of modern democracy. The British spread their style of government across the globe during their imperial period. Countless current democratic governments across the world owe their democracies to the British constitution. Even the Constitution of the United States of America, that was drafted during a rebellion against the British Empire, owes much of its substance to British political philosophy grounded in the Magna Carta, and enlightenment philosophers like John Locke.

9. The Power of Geography: Ten Maps That Reveal the Future of Our World - The Much-Anticipated Sequel to the Global Bestseller Prisoners of Geography


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

*THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER* 'I can't imagine reading a better book this year’ Daily Mirror Tim Marshall's global bestseller Prisoners of Geography showed how every nation’s choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Since then, the geography hasn’t changed. But the world has. In this revelatory new book, Marshall explores ten regions that are set to shape global politics in a new age of great-power rivalry: Australia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, the UK, Greece, Turkey, the Sahel, Ethiopia, Spain and Space. Find out why Europe’s next refugee crisis is closer than it thinks as trouble brews in the Sahel; why the Middle East must look beyond oil and sand to secure its future; why the eastern Mediterranean is one of the most volatile flashpoints of the twenty-first century; and why the Earth’s atmosphere is set to become the world’s next battleground. Delivered with Marshall’s trademark wit and insight, this is a lucid and gripping exploration of the power of geography to shape humanity’s past, present – and future. ‘Another outstanding guide to the modern world. Marshall is a master at explaining what you need to know and why.’ Peter Frankopan

10. History of the Deep State (New World Order Book 1)


Top 10 Best Books to Read in International Political Treaties - August 2021

Mainstream Media has led us to believe that the idea of a Deep State is a recent phenomenon. However, it has presented itself in many forms throughout our nation’s history. Many prominent bureaucratic figures have participated in this centuries-old conspiracy against America. Jeremy Stone has elucidated a clear definition of the origin, evolution, objectives, and hostile foreign intentions of this New World Order. Its agenda is an Anti-American one, with "enlightenment thinkers" at Its core. Nefarious foreign interference of our 'Nation-State' has been mounting for centuries with the ultimate goal of toppling our country from within. Without a complete understanding of the New World Order and its history, we are doomed to fail in attempting to eliminate it. While it is possible to stifle the New World Order and its foreign conspiracy against 'The State,' we must understand what it is, a Global-Matrix/New World Order, designed to topple Governments from within.
