About the Book
Originally submitted as a graduate thesis in 1962, this text has been transcribed and republished as both an artifact of history and an accessible layman’s introduction to the military history of Iraq.
Supplemented with excerpts from the author’s memoirs of time spent in Baghdad during the 1958 uprising, the editor hopes this volume may offer some insight on issues we still face to this day.
Out now: "Rasputin & the End of Empire," a literary rendering of the late author Martin Kilcoyne's unpublished 1961 dissertation on the myths versus the real story of Rasputin's political influence. Full preview, PDF, and paperback available below. . . . B.A. Religious Studies, UNCA, Dec. 2011 Since graduation, I have been working on a long-term project to unpack, develop and integrate my undergraduate research into a layman's monograph about the religious studies field. The working title is "Ad Absurdum." Alternately, it may be framed as a religious text for humanists. As side projects I've turned to publishing the work of both my grandfathers, each of whom had similar research interests and, for separate reasons, were unable to share their insights with the public before passing away. My two remaining, anticipated long-term projects would be a first publishing of an abandoned book manuscript on Julius von Eckardt, and an expanded 2nd edition of "The O'Byrne Mill" by Cecilia Tuttle.
