CADOGAN'S CRIMEA

Cadogan, Gen.Sir George & Lt Col S J G Calthorpe

New York, 1980, Atheneum, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7x10, Fine/Fine condition, glossy page stock, 288 pages, illus in B&W and color, appendices,index -----------------------------------------------------If all conflicts of arms were to lie regarded as pointless bloodletting, then the war in the Crimea might be the most likely event to head a long list. Colonel the Hon. George Cadogan saw the war as a participant, and recorded his observations in pictures while on the battlefield. His superb watercolors, carefully arranged in a large album which has been kept and treasured by his family, present the Crimean War from a soldier's point of view, sometimes horrifying, sometimes whimsical, sometimes sentimental, but at all tines true to the prevailing atmosphere and events of the period. ----------------------------------------------------------------------The text is an abridged version of Lifers front !Headquarters by Lt. Col. S. J. G. Calthorpe, an officer ... Read more

New York, 1973, Stein & Day, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/Poor (heavy edge wear and tears, dj spine sunned), 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 312 pages, maps,illus, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------This book is an astonishingly fresh and original account of the Fall of Singapore, unique in that it follows events right through from the first rumblings of war to the final repatriation of those few men lucky enough to have survived the four years as prisoners of the Japanese. Tragic and appalling though it was, the story of the campaign, which makes up the first part of the book, is often surprisingly funny. Miss Caffrey's re-creation of a city about to be blown wide open in which people still behaved as though in the heyday of the British Empire makes absorbing reading. The second part of the book deals with the long and terrible period of captivity with sympathy and understanding. Even when recording the history of the Burma railway and the notorious death ...

Annapolis, 1981, Naval Institute Press, FIRST US EDITION W/DJ, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6 1/2 X 9 1/2, x, 247 PAGES, ILLUS, MAPS, NOTES, BIBLIOG & INDEX. ------------------------------- As commanding officer of a ship that came close to destruction in the typhoon of December 1944, Captain Calhoun was in an unparalleled position to document a tragic ordeal that claimed 778 men, three destroyers, and more than 100 aircraft. This penetrating account details for the first time the events surrounding the storm, its chilling onset and ferocity, as well as its controversial aftermath. The deteriorating weather conditions at Ulithi that almost prevented the fleet from obtaining badly needed fuel dramatically foreshadowed what was to follow. Here is Calhoun's eyewitness account of the chaotic and perilous events as the storm approaches and unleashes its fury. Calhoun relates his experiences on board his own ship, the Dewey, as it repeatedly rolled to its maximum limit and threatened to overturn. A ... Read more

The defeat of that attempt by the Company's officers involved the ruin of the governor-general, Sir John Shore, whose "failure" in dealing with the officers has been held against him by generations of historians. -------------------------------------------------------------------------Tracing the events from three points of view—those of the British government, the Company's government in Calcutta, and the officers of the Company's service—Raymond Callahan shows that the aspects of the Company's service which struck observers in London as inefficient and corrupt were, in the officers ...

TRAPP'S WAR

Callison, Brian

  • Quantity available: 1
New York 1976, Dutton, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 192 pages. ......................................... Callison's fifth novel, Trapp's War, lives up to all the expectations his first produced. Trapp had once been a British naval officer—of a sort. But, after his career ended both abruptly and unofficially, his subsequent activities—a bit of piracy here, of smuggling and gun-running there—did nothing to endear him to his former employers. Nor, for that matter, did the clapped-out and rust-eroded ruin of a freighter that he owned seem likely to appeal to their Lordships of the Admiralty. .......................................... ....... Therefore it did seem both curious and unfair to Captain Trapp that the Royal Navy should abruptly requisition him while insisting, with most uncivil emphasis, that he should forgo practical considerations and join them in the totally unprofitable conduct of World War II, Mediterr ...

DAWN ATTACK

Callison, Brian

New York, 1973, Putnam's, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION ( very light dj edge wear ), 287 pages, 1 map. .................................................................In the predawn darkness of November 29, 1941, a fleet of warships Toyed silently toward the Nazi outpost on Alvik, Norway, a tiny fishing port of strategic importance, whose military population was that morning more concerned with a warm breakfast than with the possibilities of impending attack. Ashore was a varied garrison: Herr Major Doring, lifetime officer in the German army and visiting dignitary at the post, unsure of his present Führer and weary of war; Leutnant Sur See Rex, senior officer at Alvik, struggling to establish himself in the Nazi superrace; Soldat Kruger, to whom war was a movie made by Errol Flynn; pilot Paul Fichte, doomed to die at the hands either of the British or of the SS. And aboard the ships was an equally diverse task force: Norwegian nationals, bound ... Read more

New York 1960, Doubleday, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG- condition ( dj shows very light wear to extremities & small closed tear), ) 260 pages, end paper maps, 16 illus, appendice, --------------------------------------- This book fills an important gap in the history of the Second World War, for the story of the convoys to Malta has never before been told. It is now accepted by British, German and Italian historians that Malta was the key to the Middle East ; the task of the convoys which fought through with supplies to the " George Cross Island" was therefore of supreme importance. Many of the true stories in this book are epics of the sea—outstanding examples of the courage and fine seamanship of the men of the Royal Navy and the Merchant Navy. The author describes not only the thrilling incidents—the story of the Ohio and the Breconshire, for example—in all the principal convoys to Malta, but also the blockade runs made by indivi ...

London. Constable and Company Ltd. 1990. UK First Edition. , hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 229 pages, illus., notes, bibliog., index. -------------------------------------- This carefully researched and highly entertaining account charts the history of the safari from its origins in trade to the extravagances of the safari's golden age in the 1920s and 1930s. Kenneth Cameron introduces and conveys a vivid sense of 'being there' through skilful use of first-hand accounts and his own personal experience of East Africa. -------------------------------------------------------------People went on safari for many reasons. They came to East Africa to see, to touch, and of course to kill. East Africa became Safariland, a pleasure ground for rich white men like Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, George Eastman, Baron Rothschild, even the Prince of Wales (with Mrs Simpson waiting in the wings); and a challenge for early women explorers such as May Fren ...

New York 1987, Harmony, First US hard bound edition in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 341 pages, map. Belle Starr. Her name conjures up romance and adventure, freedom and independence, and most of all, the heroic days of the Old West. Belle Starr, who came of age in the turbulent years following the Civil War, was a product of those reckless times when Southern heroes became outlaws and the Confederate cause became a losing battle. Belle Starr was a woman who took control of her life at a time when most women (and men) were filled with bitterness and self-doubt, especially in the aftermath of the violent guerrilla war fought by irregulars along the border of Kansas and Missouri. The defeated dispersed, but like so many compatriots, they did not stop fighting "the -damn Yankees." The good people of the South didn't surrender gracefully. It seemed like everyone was a refugee in those years... picking up stakes, hoping for a new start. The Union may have won the ... Read more

Oxford UP, New York, 2001. US first edition, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xxv, 265 pages, illus., notes, bibliog., index. --------------------------------------- With the return of Hong Kong to the Chinese government in 1997, the empire that had lasted three hundred years and upon which the sun never set loosened its hold on the world and slipped into history. But the question of how we understand the British Empire--its origins, nature, purpose, and effect on the world it ruled--is far from settled. In this incisive new work, already being hailed as a landmark, David Cannadine looks at the British Empire from a new perspective--through the eyes of those who created and ruled it- -and offers fresh insight into the driving forces behind the Empire. Arguing against the views of Edward Said and others, Cannadine suggests that the British were motivated not by race but by class. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ...

New York : Oxford University Press, 2003. 1st US Edition., hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiii, 386 pages, notes, bibliog., index. ..................................................... David Cannadine is widely regarded as one of the most insightful historians of modern Britain—and certainly one of the most witty and entertaining. His most recent book, Ornamentalism, a provocative argument about the role of class in the British Empire, was hailed as "vigorous, stimulating, and bursting with ideas"( The Spectator). Now, with In Churchill's Shadow, Cannadine looks at the contradictions of Britain's twentieth-century hero and of its twentieth-century history. Here is an intriguing look at ways in which perceptions of a glorious past have continued to haunt the British present, often crushing efforts to shake them off. The book centers on Churchill, a titanic figure whose influence spanned the century. Though he was the savior of modern Brita ... Read more
