The First Season: 1917-18 by Bob Duff

The First Season: 1917-18 And The Birth Of The NHL by Bob Duff
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 7.1 MB
Overview: The National Hockey League is celebrating its hundredth anniversary in 2017-2018-but Bob Duff’s The First Season reveals how close the league came to folding in its very first year. Set against the turmoil of the Great War and born out of a ruse to rid the league of reviled Toronto owner Eddie Livingstone, the new league suffered from a series of crises: from a shortfall of quality players due to military conscription, to rival leagues and divided fan loyalties, to the burning down of the Montreal Arena that was home ice to two teams. But despite all this, the league survived-and became the worldwide standard for competitive hockey.

With chapters devoted to the first-ever NHL playoffs and Stanley Cup championships, in addition to team and player profiles and vintage black and white photos, Duff’s The First Season is essential reading for every hockey fan, providing real insight about the first generation of hockey heroes.

1917: Beyond the Western Front by Ian F.W. Beckett

1917: Beyond the Western Front by Ian F.W. Beckett
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3 Mb
Overview: The growing military, political and socio-economic costs for all belligerents as the Great War entered its fourth year were increasingly evident, liberal democracies and authoritarian states alike having to remobilise public opinion for yet greater sacrifices. While the Western Front was facing these challenges, 1917 was also marked by the collapse of Tsarist Russia and by food riots resuting both from the Entente’s blockade of Central Europe and the revival of unrestricted submarine warfare by the Central Powers. Ottoman Turkey was feeling the strain of war as well, as British forces advanced in both Palestine and Mesopotamia. For states as yet uncommitted to war, such as the United States and China, 1917 was a year of decision. This volume amply illustrates the significance of this crucial year in the global conflict. The contributors are Lawrence Sondhaus, Eric Grove, Keith Grieves, Matthew Hughes, Kaushik Roy, Vanda Wilcox, Laura Rowe, and Nick Hewitt.
