Book Description

The struggle for wealth and power that has surrounded oil for decades continues to shake the world economy, dictate the outcome of wars, and transform the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous -- from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein. The definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century, The Prize is a book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement -- and great importance.

Before each military event there was the planning, the reconnaissance, and the conjecture as to enemy positions. After the event there would be debriefing, analysis of success and failure, and a redrawing of maps to show new troop positions and boundaries. All of the maps featured in this book have been drawn from the extensive collection held by the National Archives at Kew in west London. Providing a fascinating and unique insight into the planning and organization of military campaigns, Mapping The First World War is essential for anyone interested in military history.How to Involve Learners and Others in the Assessment Process Understand the Role and Use of Constructive Feedback in the Assessment Process Understand Requirements for Keeping Records of Assessment in Education and Training Micro-teaching The Micro Teach Session Planning to Deliver Your Session Facilitating Your Session Assessing Learning Giving and Receiving Feedback Evaluating Your Session Micro Teach Checklist Appendix 1 - Educational Abbreviations and Acronyms Appendix 2 - Glossary of Educational Terms Appendix 3 - Qualification structure for the Level 3 Award in Education and Training Index
