London 1983, Leo Cooper, UK First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, 6x9, 238 pages, appendix, bibliog, index. ---------------------------------------------------------According to the official records of the British Army a total of 346 officers and men were summarily executed at dawn following their convictions by courts martial in the field between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of March 1920. The details of their trials and executions have been closed to the public ever since, but during the last decade there has arisen a sense of profound uneasiness regarding the circumstances surrounding their deaths. ----------------------------------------------------------In the preparation of this book Anthony Babington has made use of a great deal of new evidence which has only recently come to light and which has enabled a full and accurate account of these matters to be written for the very first time.

University of New South Wales Press, Sydney: Kensington, 1986. first Australian edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 1/2 x 10, fine/fine condition, XII, 260 PAGES, illus, maps, appendices, bibliog., index. ------------------------ The influence of the Royal Navy on our early colonial history is everywhere evident. As representatives of the world's greatest Imperial and maritime power, the commanders of the Navy's ships in the southwest Pacific exercised their authority with a confidence later generations can but envy and admire. For almost a century, from the decision in 1821 to detach annually a ship from the East Indies command for service in Australian waters to the arrival in 1913 of the new Australian navy, the Royal Navy filled a variety of roles, from island policeman to agent of British foreign policy. Dr Bach examines these activities not only from the broad perspective of the often tense and sometimes hostile relationship between colonial and Imperial authorities, but also ... Read more

GERMAN TEXT., Ch. Links Verlag Berlin 2001, German first edition, paper covers, 6 x 9, Fine condition, 220 pages, many illus., notes, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------The German colonial rulers were known that they cruelly struck. In East Africa, now Tanzania, they drove around 100 years ago the rebel chieftain Mkwawa not only in death, but separated him from his head to send it as a macabre trophy to Germany. In 1919 the Allies had in Article 246 of the Treaty of Versailles, the return of the people of the skull Mkwawas Wahehe, but only after half a century he turned 1954 back to Tanzania. In light of these head-hunting, Martin Baer and Olaf Schroter tell the story of the former German colony in East Africa: from the conquest of a place in the sun, about the fighting in World War I, the colonial nostalgia in the Weimar Republic, the Nazi world power and today's development plans .

THE FREEDOM TRAP

Bagley, Desmond

  • Quantity available: 1
New York 1972, Doubleday, First US edition in dj, VG/VG- ( light wear to dj extremities, prev. owners name on frt free end paper ), 254 pages. At first, everything was simple. Rearden, like the careful, professional thief he was, would tap the mailman on the head-"just hard enough"-take the inconspicuous box of diamonds, pass it off to his boss around the corner, and become richer by 40,000 pounds sterling. Simple. Too simple. That robbery leads Rearden into prison and out again, into a tangled net of international intrigue and espionage, into the arms of his boss's beautiful but strangely dispassionate secretary, and into a nerve-wracking chase that reaches its climax aboard a fireworks-laden boat off the island of Malta. With taut, spare strokes, Desmond Bagley draws the reader into a perplexing world where little is predictable and less is safe. From its uncomplicated beginning to its explosive finish, THE FREEDOM TRAP is filled with the kind of fast, colorful a ... Read more

New York, 1999, Viking, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, ( dj price clipped) xviii, 797 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. I ---------------------------------------------It was the dawn of the Gilded Age; it welded the new western United States to the East with twin bands of iron; it opened a path for settlement and exploitation, utterly changing the West as it doomed the Plains Indian culture. After the Civil War, it was the century's most transformative chain of events. Beginning in 1842 with a visionary's dream to span the continent with a single railroad line, Empire Express captures three dramatic decades in which the United States effectively doubled in size, fought three wars, and began to discover a new national identity. Culminating in the driving of the Golden Spike in the Utah desert in 1869, which touched off a frenzy of celebration, the narrative ends in 1873 in Washington under the Capitol rotunda, with the crushing f ...

Annapolis 1986, Naval Inst. Pr, reprint of 1943 US manual ONI - 54 series, oblong hardbound in dj, 10 1/2 x 7, Fine/Fine condition, approx 200 pages, hundreds of photos & drawings. More than 900 illustrations - including 679 photographs and 227 line drawings- depict the might of the US Navy at the height of the Second World War. ----------------------------------Reproduced from the official publication first published in 1943, it presents a comprehensive portrait of the US Fleet at the period where it was beginning to expand into the vast armada that ultimately overwhelmed the enemy forces at sea. In mid-war, the ships showed the advances in equipment and protection prompted by early combat experience, yet they still betrayed their pre-war elegance of design, having not yet had their symmetry destroyed by crowds of antiaircraft guns and director tubs or by complex thickets of radar and counter measures antennas. The photographs were selected from a Naval Intelligence Division c ... Read more

1987,Battery press, LIKE new copy, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2, vii, 107 pages, 128 photos, 3 maps, glossary, index. -------------------------------------------------------------A very in-depth and well illustrated history of this elite New Zealand Army unit, the SAS. Formed in the mid 1950's, they have seen considerable combat including operations in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. Since its formation in the mid-1950s the New Zealand SAS has seen active service in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam where, without exception, it served with distinction. Like other SAS units, the NZ SAS's mission is to respond to those grim situations where Regular Army units - or even the civilian police force - may not be able to act efficiently. The role of the NZ SAS therefore requires an extraordinarily high degree of operational flexibility and an exceptional personnel. Dare to Win reviews the NZ SAS's rigorous selection process; it describes the training, equipment and weapons employed ... Read more

Brassey's (UK), London, 1994., UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xxv, 278 pages, illus, notes, appendices, index ------------------------------------------------ Forward Everywhere is a multi-dimensional history of Britain's Territorial Army told from the inside against a background of social change. Eschewing a list of dates, names and formations, Stanley Simm Baldwin, a long-time Terrier, brings to life the spirit of the weekend soldiers over the years. As Field Marshal Lord Bramall states in his foreword: 'We feel ourselves among the stolid Yeoman, the reluctant Militiamen, the earnest Volunteers of 1859, the self-sacrificing Territorials of 1914-18, the well-travelled Terriers of 1939-45 and the fit technocrats of today.' ---------------------------------------------------- Baldwin recounts with humour and humanity the many stories of derring-do and quiet heroism of the soldiers, and provides an instructive account of the confl ...

PEMBERTON: A BIOGRAPHY

Ballard, Michael B

Jackson, Mississippi, Univ. Press of Mississippi, 1994. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiii, 250 pages, illus, map, notes, bibliog., index. ............................................ It was the sad fate of General John C. Pemberton (1814-1881), a Northerner serving in the Confederate army, to die in disgrace and humiliation. Because he surrendered Vicksburg to General Grant, Confederates considered him a traitor. Because he lost this strategic southern port on the Mississippi, Pemberton was branded as an incompetent. In this discerning new biography, the first to examine Pemberton's life and career in full scope, Michael Ballard credits General Pemberton for military prowess that previous Civil War scholars have denied him. Here his strength is shown to be in administration, not in the theater of combat. Ballard persuasively argues that if Pemberton's abilities had been properly used, he could have made a positive contribution to the Confederate c ... Read more

New York, 1989, Weidenfield & Nicholson, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , Fine/Fine cond, 9 x 12, glossy paper, 224 pp, prof. illustrated in B&W and color. The romantic image of the medieval tournament, where knights in armor fought to win the love of ladies fair, has perhaps been the reason that serious historians have tended to regard such tournaments as frivolous. Recent research has caused this attitude to change, however, and this book is the first to present a serious picture of the tournament in all its glory. The subject proves to be a fascinating one, providing an extraordinary range of insights into the medieval mind, and into the origins of many of the attitudes that colour life and behaviour in the western world today. The tournament is the first sport for which detailed rules and regulations survive: from its history emerges the concept of 'fair play', and the word itself survives as a description of many of today's sporting events. The ... Read more

Faber & Faber, London, 1964., UK first edition, hard bound in dj, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, ( light dj edge wear & price clipped), 224 pages, maps, illus., index. ------------------------------------The Anglo-French expedition against Egypt in 1956 is perhaps the most dramatic and controversial chapter in our recent history. Because it was called off before the Suez Canal had been occupied and 'de-nationalized', the outcome has sometimes been compared with the Russian defeat by the Japanese at the turn of the century. The prestige which President Nasser gained when he survived the Israeli and Anglo-French assaults has obscured the fact that the Egyptians were soundly beaten in the field and that only U.S. and Soviet intervention saved them from military disaster. ----------------------------------------------For Israel the operation was an outstanding military success; even for Britain and France it may be said to have been successful up to the point to which it was c ...
