Free Download One in a Thousand: The Life and Death of Captain Eddie McKay, Royal Flying Corps (Thinking Historically) by Graham Broad
English | March 20, 2017 | ISBN: 1487593414 | 215 pages | PDF | 3.16 Mb
This short microhistory details the life and death of Eddie McKay, a varsity athlete at Western University, who flew with the Royal Flying Corps in the First World War. Graham Broad switches creatively from telling McKay's fascinating story to teaching valuable lessons on how to do history: why the past matters, why historians take different approaches, how to pose historical questions, how to identify relevant source materials, and the importance of thoughtful, intelligent, and respectful treatment of historical subjects.
The book includes a timeline of the subject's life, a map of relevant combat areas in the Battle of the Somme, and nine illustrations. It concludes with four unsolved events in McKay's life: a mysterious woman, a strange advertisement for batteries, an empty envelope, and an unknown grave-demonstrating that even a detailed history about one person's life is never really complete.
