The US Army in World War II (1): The Pacific

by Chappell, Mike; Henry, Mark

Condition: As New


University Park, Illinois, U.S.A.: Osprey Pub Co, 2000. New book, 48 pages, MAA342. When World War II broke out in September 1939 the US Army - starved of resources since 1919 - numbered just 174,000 men. By VJ-Day, 2 September 1945, a total of 8.3 million had served in an army which had risen to a stable strength of 91 divisions. The Army's contribution to the war against Japan - 20 divisions and numerous smaller units - has tended to be overshadowed by the exploits of the much smaller Marine Corps. This first of three titles describes the organisation, uniforms and equipment of the US Army in the CBI and the Central and South-West Pacific from 1941 to 1945. Covers: Divisional organisation: CBI, Central and South-West Pacific, Summer Dress uniform, Tropical combat uniforms, Camouflage uniforms, Tropical equipment.. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Chappell, Mike. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
