The fifth-grade Week in the Woods is a beloved tradition of Hardy Elementary, where Mark Chelmsley (the Fourth) is pretty much killing time before his parents send him off to an exclusive prep school. But then Mark realizes the Week might be a chance to prove to Mr. Maxwell that he's not just another of the slacker rich kids the teacher can't stand.
But it may be too late for Mark to change Mr. Maxwell's opinion of him. On the first day of the Week, the tension between teacher and student explodes, and in a reckless moment, Mark puts not only himself, but also Mr. Maxwell, in grave danger. Can two such strong adversaries work together to save their lives?
Though not nearly as glorified as the Second World War which followed two decades later; America's entry into World War I is generally regarded as a noble cause. We needed to fight in order to "make the world safe for democracy," or so the goof-ball narrative goes. Mainly for that reason, Woodrow Wilson is ranked as one of the "Top Ten" Presidents by the court historians of American Academia. But is Woodrow Wilson truly worthy of such respect? Was America's entry into World War I, at a price of 120,000 dead "doughboys," really a just and necessary cause to be celebrated? Woodrow Wilson Warmonger will address these questions in the form of a line-by-line, fully illustrated rebuttal to Wilson's pre-fight speech delivered to Congress, and published, in full, in the February 11, 1918 issue of the New York Times. This pamphlet is by no means a comprehensive analysis, but the reader will nonetheless find it very informative and highly thought-provoking. It is hoped that this work will whet the appetite of your inquiring mind and prompt you to explore The Bad War: The Story Never Taught About World War 2; a best-selling masterpiece which provides a thoroughly documented and illustrated summary of both World Wars; events which can more accurately be described as World War, Part 1 and World War, Part 2.
