bash kills console history

when I start a non-cygwin interactive application in a console window
under cmd, I can recall the previous lines with the <Up> key and edit
the current command line with <Left> and <Right>.
when I start the same application under bash, I can no longer recall
history with <Up> (although <Left>&<Right> still work).
What does bash do to disable it?
How can I get back history editing?
Note that when I run the same program under GDB (which runs under
bash!) I do get to edit previous commands with <Up>.
