While scholarship abounds on the diplomatic and security aspects of the Cold War, very little attention has been paid to military planning at the operational level. In Blueprints for Battle, experts from Russia, the United States, and Europe address this dearth by closely examining the military planning of NATO and Warsaw Pact member nations from the end of World War II to the beginning of détente. Informed by material from recently opened archives, this collection investigates the perceptions and actions of the rival coalitions, exploring the challenges presented by nuclear technology, examining how military commanders' perceptions changed from the 1950s to the 1960s, and discussing logistical coordination among allied states. The result is a detailed study that offers much-needed new perspectives on the military aspects of the early Cold War.

The Battle of Home

But recognition of the danger of visionary blueprints for the next thousand years
does not mean that men do not need plans for new homes after this war , or that
such homes can be built without any planning at all . More planning than ever will

"Is not home,” asks Mr.Cekota, “the expression of those most precious things which, up to now, we have tried unsuccessfully to establish in international and social relations--security and freedom?... Of the many aims and ends emerging out of this war, this struggle for home seems to me a war aim as important and as a good as any other.” Mr.Cekota came to Canada in the summer of 1939, one of the group eighty Czechoslovaks who escaped from their native city of Zlin before it was too late. Cut off from their homeland, having some machines and considerable industrial skill, these former employees of the Czechoslovak Bata Shoe Company built a new life and new industrial community in a remote part of Ontario in the town called Batawa. After describing this group adventure, the author discusses the problems of industry today and tomorrow. It is his belief that the home of twentieth century man has been created and moulded by modern industry, which has broken down the geographic isolation of states and nations. The main problem of war and peace in this age is the problem of free industrial community and the free man in the industry. Mr. Cekota offers many positive ideas toward the solution of these fundamental problems, and a glowing tribute to his adopted country, Canada, in a chapter entitled: A Country Worth Defending.

Seven-time Grammy award winning artist offers an inspiring blend of God and grit for building a fulfilling life "The Blueprint is a transparent approach to talking about issues-from marriage to politics to sex and religion-and it's from my perspective. Not from a Princeton, mainline, protestant, evangelical or liberal viewpoint, but from a 2010 Christian moderate with swag." --Kirk Franklin Gospel artist Kirk Franklin's faith wasn't always as strong as it is today. His father abandoned his family; his mother constantly told Kirk that he was an unwanted child and left him to be adopted when he was four; his sister became a crack addict; he never saw a black man who was faithful in marriage. Despite his shaky foundation he found strength and success through his music and through God. In The Blueprint, Franklin will explain how by communicating with life's architect, God, he learned to see hardships as necessary life propellants and moved on to become the bestselling gospel musician in recent history, as well as a devoted husband and loving father. This is not a step program, it's a lifelong journey. With Franklin's guidance, you will: -pursue your dreams without losing yourself in the chase -do some lifescaping to eliminate the "weeds" that hold you back -declare your life to be drama-free -get past your fears, so you can live and love fully -pass the baton to future generations by leading by example It's time to take faith out of the church pews and into our everyday lives. With hope, devotion, and strength, The Blueprint offers a plan to help you move beyond hardships to create your own personal Blueprint for life. Watch a Video
