Historical novels provide us with information, drama, interesting settings and fascinating characters. Not to mention, that we actually can learn something of actual events. In this podcast, I examine and play samples from two of the historical novels which I have recorded. From the days of the founding of our country, we’ll ask the question, “Would you sign?” from theDeclaration of Independence Series. From the troubled Civil War era, we’ll watch the surprising actions of a sutler in Murray Pura’s series, Let Freedom Ring.
The west of the mid-1800’s was mired in conflict over the issue of slavery. Against this backdrop, C. Q. Scafidi brings us The Outlaw Unchained: Bleeding Kansas. This conflict plays a role in this action filled novel. And Scafidi shares much about Bleeding Kansas. Never heard of it? Some background and some tantalizing excerpts from the novel are featured in this podcast.
Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred.
Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.
The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.
The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.
Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany.
So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?

Wednesday, December 3, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is taking a look at World War II through the eyes of two well-known writers of historical novels, the award-winning author Pam Jenoff and James MacManus.
Pam Jenoff has written several novels, including the Quill Award nominee, THE KOMMANDANT’S GIRL. Jenoff is a graduate of George Washington University, Cambridge and Penn Law. She served as the special assistant to the Secretary of the Army. In 1996, after moving over from the Pentagon to the State Department, she was assigned to the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, Poland where she developed an expertise in Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust. THE WINTER GUEST is her latest book, the story of twin sisters fighting for survival in Nazi occupied Poland and the mysterious American pilot that lands on their doorstep.
London born James MacManus was educated at Westminster School and graduated from St. Andrews University. He has worked for the Daily Express and the Guardian first as a reporter and then as a foreign correspondent. He moved to The Times where he serves as Managing Director of the Times Literary Supplement. He is the author of several novels including BLACK VENUS and OCEAN DEVIL made into a film starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His latest book SLEEP IN PEACE TONIGHT takes place in 1941 London, and brings to life the tale of Harry Hopkins, the adviser to Franklin D. Roosevelt dispatched to London on the eve of the Second World War and the history-making relationship he forms with Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
