Instead, the Germans had to ensure a powerful naval presence was maintained in the Mediterranean Sea to combat the Allied naval powers massing in the Mediterranean and to protect their supply lines and lines of communication to Africa....   [tags: History, War, The Battle of the Atlantic]

frosts early poems

- To refer to a group of Frost's poems as "early" is perhaps problematic: One is tempted to think of the term as relative given that Frost's first book of poetry appeared when he was already 39.

Many of the poems of the first book, A Boy's Will, were, in fact, written long before--a few more than a decade earlier. Likewise, Frost's later books contain poems almost certainly written in the period discussed in this note....   [tags: essays research papers]
