Wielding the Dagger: The Marinekorps Flandern and the German War Effort, 1914-1918

By Mark D. Karau | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This project began six years ago as a dissertation. Now that it is finally complete, the list of debts I have incurred is so extensive that I am almost bound to forget someone! Any list of those who aided me in this project has to begin with the man who guided me through the initial stages of the work, my dissertation advisor Professor Paul Halpern. Without the benefit of his assistance and expertise I seriously doubt that this project would ever have seen the light of day. I also owe a tremendous debt to Professor Dennis Showalter who graciously volunteered to read the work even though we had only just met. His encouragement and a dvice have made this a vastly better work than it would have been otherwise. Thanks as well are due to the members of my doctoral committee: Professors Jan K. Tanenbaum; Nathan Stoltzfus; Winston Lo; and Patrick O'Sullivan, all of whom provided suggestions on ways to improve the manuscript. I must also thank the staff of the Bundes Archiv in Freiburg for their assistance running down materials pertaining to the MarineKorps and the war in Flanders. The staff of the inter-library department at Strozier Library on the campus of Florida State University also deserve commendation for handling my reams of interlibrary loan requests.

Thanks are also due to several colleagues I have taught with over the last six years, all of whom encouraged me to finish the project and some of whom read and commented on parts of the manuscript. They are, in no particular order: Professor David Mock of Tallahassee Community College; Professor Michael O'Brien of the University of Wisconsin Fox Valley College; Ms. Susan Strauss of Santa Fe Community College and especially Professor Barbara Oberlander of Santa Fe Community College. My sincere thanks to all of you.

I would also like to thank Professor Jim Sloan and Ms. Sheila Ann Wiest who provided the maps for the work.
