His career as a soldier was marked by several quite significant achievements, notably the first major defeat of the King's cavalry at Cheriton in March 1644.

New York 1987, Atlantic Monthly Pr, US First edition, hard bound w/dj, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, 440 pages, illus, notes, appendices, glossary, index. -----------------------------JAMES ADAMS, defense correspondent of The Sunday Times (London) and a leading authority on covert warfare and terrorism, details the inside story of the U .S., Soviet, and British special forces-their secret armies. Delta Force and the secret intelligence-gathering unit ISA in the U.S., SAS in Great Britain, and the terrifying and highly accomplished Spetsnaz in the Soviet Union are all in the same business. Their aim is to continually press for political or territorial advantage in the shadow of a war too terrible to contemplate. Indeed, these special forces are the cutting edge in today's wars, and they play an increasingly prominent part in the planning of future strategy. Secret Armies is the first account of the development of these covert forces whose training, methods, and operations are by definiti ... Read more

Within twenty-four hours Denmark was overwhelmed and the main Norwegian airfields and seaports were under German control.

New York 1965, Roy Publ's, US 1st edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , Fine/Fine condition, , 6x9, 195 pp. ------------------------ Here is a true story of heroism unsung, of courage unheard of. . . The soldiers of the 204 Military Mission were commandos sent into war-time China, men from British and Australian units trained in jungle warfare and demolitions. Their objective: lead Chinese guerrillas against the Japanese. In nine months, the commandos travelled thousands of miles by truck, train, junk, and sampan. They lost everything except their arms, faced disillusionment and endless hardship, marched until they were barefoot. In the end, through no fault of their own, they failed completely. These were the `forgotten men', and lain Adamson has written their history as an adventure story, reconstructing it from the letters and personal papers of the survivors. His book is a horrifying picture of the Chinese people in the agony of war and, at the same time, a splendid ... Read more

New York, 1989, Lexington, 6th US printing, , hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION , xxiii, 391 pages, illus, maps, notes, appendices, index. ....................................................... The 1983 American invasion of Grenada (code-named 'Urgent Fury') was the largest U.S. military operation since Vietnam. It took less than two weeks, and when it was over the American public felt a renewed sense of pride in its armed forces. And, despite all the controversy and outrage expressed by allies, adversaries, and the American press, there appeared to be real cause for celebration: for the first time in history, a Marxist regime suffered invasion and military defeat by the U.S. It was a jubilant President Reagan who announced, 'Our days of weakness are over. Our military forces are back on their feet and standing tall.' But how accurate a picture of events is this? According to Major Adkin, who participated in the invasion, not very. ..... ... Read more

London 1996, Leo Cooper, first UK edition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, hard bound with dust jacket, , Fine/Fine condition, , 285 pages, maps, notes, bibliog index. Highly Recommended. .............................................................The charge of the Light Brigade! One of Britain's best known glorious disasters.

The result is a gripping and definitive book for the general reader and the military buff alike. ..................................................................The author introduces the Light Brigade on the start-line in Chapter 1. Then he goes back to follow it through the controversial events that brought it to that position moments before the bugle sounded. The reader rides with the Regim ... Read more

Little Brown & Co., Boston, 1968. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1./2, VG/VG CONDITION, (very minor dj edge wear), x, 336 pages, illus., maps, notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------------The battle for Italy was admittedly the most controversial campaign of World War II. To this day, soldiers, historians, reporters and political leaders angrily debate whether the choice of that miserably uncomfortable arena was a bloody waste of men and materiel or was the sound result of a series of inevitable problems and decisions. The leaders of both sides have not escaped the puzzled stares of contemporary and succeeding generations. Was President Roosevelt a too-willing tool in what some have agreed was a Stalinist plot to chew up Anglo-American resources? Was Field Marshal Albert Kesselring really the military genius that some American generals have acclaimed or was he simply the interfering optimist as described by several of his own subordinate commander ...
