The armed forces of the colonial powers c. 1700–1964

For imperialists, the concept of guardian is specifically to the armed forces that kept watch on the frontiers and in the heartlands of imperial territories. Large parts of Asia and Africa, and the islands of the Pacific and the Caribbean were imperial possessions. This book discusses how military requirements and North Indian military culture, shaped the cantonments and considers the problems posed by venereal diseases and alcohol, and the sanitary strategies pursued to combat them. The trans-border Pathan tribes remained an insistent problem in Indian defence between 1849 and 1947. The book examines the process by which the Dutch elite recruited military allies, and the contribution of Indonesian soldiers to the actual fighting. The idea of naval guardianship as expressed in the campaign against the South Pacific labour trade is examined. The book reveals the extent of military influence of the Schutztruppen on the political developments in the German protectorates in German South-West Africa and German East Africa. The U.S. Army, charged with defending the Pacific possessions of the Philippines and Hawaii, encountered a predicament similar to that of the mythological Cerberus. The regimentation of military families linked access to women with reliable service, and enabled the King's African Rifles to inspire a high level of discipline in its African soldiers, askaris. The book explains the political and military pressures which drove successive French governments to widen the scope of French military operations in Algeria between 1954 and 1958. It also explores gender issues and African colonial armies.

Prior to that, the last internal use of the U.S. Army was the genocidal suppression of Native Americans in the Great Plains, California and the Great Northwest after the American Civil War. 7 In part because the U.S. faces no conceivable threat to its territorial integrity from its neighbors, in part because the U.S. Coast Guard exists to patrol home waters and in part because of the existence of powerful

.S. military to take two additional steps to aid Britain in July. First, on July 13, orders went forward to the British and U.S. Army chiefs to arrange for joint military exercises to be held in August and September on U.S. bases. The goal was to share knowledge of military operations and procedures, as the two nations could soon be fighting side by side. 5 Second, plans that had been made in spring 1941 to send U.S. Army corps into Northern Ireland to improve naval and army bases and to construct new air bases also went into

Elana Duffy chose to remove her right foot and part of her leg in late summer 2019. In an essay she wrote for The New York Times a year later, she reflected on her decision and the events that followed. She had been a soldier in the U.S. Army in Iraq in 2005 when she sustained a combination of complicated head and leg injuries. They led to fourteen years of “nearly constant, and sometimes excruciating, pain.” With a right ankle that rolled when she put weight on it and an

I said to the guards, ‘I want his rights’ and they replied, ‘that dog is member of the U.S. army’. 36 The languages of human rights here cross over into the animal rights movement (though, historically, the inspiration probably went in the opposite direction, with burgeoning interest in human rights borrowing languages from nineteenth-century societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals). 37 And, because of the cultural link between animality and femaleness, it is no

Worcester compared the situation to the U.S. army’s attempt, several years earlier, to cordon off Manila from republican forces surrounding it: ‘What General Otis could not accomplish with thousands of soldiers was an impossibility for the board of health, aided by the city police and a few hundred men from the insular constabulary.’ 6 The cholera was certainly impossible to contain, for
