Andre Deutsch, London, 1979., UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG CONDITION, 144 PAGES, ILLUS IN B&W AND COLOR, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------------------------ This other Eden, demi-paradise, This Fortress built by Nature for herself, Against infection and the hand of war: A garden paradise, protected by a castle wall from invasion by the wild and ruthless world outside; that was how William Shakespeare imagined the England of his day, towards the end of the Tudor century. ........................................................................How did the Tudors do it ?

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

Cambridge 1972, Harvard Univ Pr, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/.VG condition, , 5 1/2 x 8, xiv, 242 pp. extensive notes, glossary, bibliog & index. ----------------------------------------------------Here is the first detailed study of the British government's late eighteenth-century attempt to reorganize the East India Company's army. 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 ...

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 ...

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

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

Charlottsville 1995, Un of Va, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, x11, 209 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------------------------------WILLIAM R. J. PEGRAM FORGED A RECORD AS one of the most prominent artillerists in the Army of Northern Virginia. He participated in every major battle in Virginia and rose from sergeant to full colonel by the end of the war. Pegram entered Confederate service to defend a way of life that he believed to be ordained by God, a belief that was shared by many of his contemporaries. Lee's Young Artillerist looks at Pegram as a case study exemplifying the world view of slave holders whose formative years were the 1850s. Political turmoil over slavery, the emphasis on a Southern education for Southern youth, and rapid modernization provided Pegram and his generation with a unique perspective on their society's place within a world embracing free labor. By the 18 ... Read more
