The Chinese Army 1937-49: World War II And Civil War

By Jowett, Philip S.

University Park, Illinois, U.S.A.: Osprey Pub Co, 2005. New book, 48 pages, MAA424. Although the Chinese contribution to Allied victory in World War II is often ignored, China fought the Japanese Empire for far longer than any other belligerent nation. By the time that the Sino-Japanese War became absorbed into the wider conflict at the end of 1941, Chinese armies had already suffered huge casualties and half the country had been lost. By fighting on with Allied support, China tied down a million Japanese troops. After Japan’s defeat in 1945, China was immediately plunged back into civil war between Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists and Mao Tse-tung’s Communists; and the latter’s victory in 1949 changed the world for the rest of the 20th century and beyond. Covers: Background, Chronology, The Chinese Army in 1937, The Sino-Japanese War 1937-45, The Chinese Army 1942-45, Uniforms 1937-45, Uniforms 1946-49. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Walsh, Stephen. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

US Army Paratrooper in the Pacific Theater 1943-45

By Rottman, Gordon

Osprey Pub Co, 2012. New book, 64 pages, WAR165. The two major Army units that operated in the Pacific - the 11th Airborne Division and the 503rd Parachute Regimental Combat Team (PRCT) launched small-scale operations on extremely difficult, if not, outright dangerous, terrain, while also conducting amphibious assaults, fighting on jungled hills, swamps and mud. The two units were very different, with the 503rd PRCT being reserved for special purpose missions and the 11th Airborne Division occupying a more traditional role. This title will deal with the background to these two units and their training, before detailing the specific equipment used in the theatre and, finally and most importantly, the combat experience at a personal level of the US Army Paratrooper in the Pacific.. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Delf, Brian. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

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

By Chappell, Mike; Henry, Mark

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.

By Moreman, Tim

The Us Navy in World War II

By Henry, Mark R.

University Park, Illinois, U.S.A.: Osprey Pub Co, 2002. New book, 64 pages, ELI080. In 1941 the US Navy had 17 battleships - of which eight would be knocked out on the first day of the war - four aircraft carriers, and about 340,000 men including reservists. Pearl Harbor so weakened it that it was unable to prevent the Japanese capture of the Philippines and a vast sweep of Pacific islands. By 1945 it was the strongest navy the world had ever seen, with nearly 100 carriers, 41,000 aircraft and 3.3 million men; the unrivalled master of air-sea and amphibious operations, it was poised to invade Japan's home islands after reducing her fleet to scrap and her Pacific empire to impotence and starvation. This extraordinary story is illustrated here with dramatic photos, and nine meticulous colour plates showing a wide range of USN uniforms. Covers the following uniforms: blues, whites, dungarees, khakis, greys, flying greens; foul weather, flight deck crew, aircrew, Coast Guard, WAVES, frogmen, SeaBees, Hospital Corpsmen - Insignia: rank rating, service, cuff, medals - The Crew: recruitment, training, pay, food, life on board, duties, battle stations, medical, shore leave - Ship types - Weapons - Aircraft - Types of mission - Camapign summary. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Bujeiro, Ramiro. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
