Providence, 1997, Berghahn 3rd US revised edition, hard bound in illustrated covers, VG condition( light corner bump), 6x9, xxviii, 452 pages, notes, bibliog, index. ----------------------------------------- Dadrians study is a highly detailed yet accessible account of the attempt of the Ottoman Turkish state to deal effectively with its Armenian question, under both the Abul Hamit and the later young Turk Ittihadist regime, through the mass murder of this nationality group. The book is richly documented by an abundance of primary source materials. Particularly telling are commentaries by representatives of foreign governments during the period under consideration that attest to these killings and the reasons behind them. Dadrians main conclusion is that these series of massacres, cumulating in the 1915 genocide were a resolution of the Turko-Armenian conflict based on a sense of impunity on the part of the respective Turkish regimes. The policy was a direct result of the absence of effective det ... Read more

Toronto McClelland and Stewart 1988., Canadian first edition, paper covers, 6 x 9, VG condition ( slight corner bend on front cover), 292 pages, a few illus, orders of battle, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------------In August 1914 young Canadians across the country cheered the news that war had broken out in Europe, and rushed to join the army. High school kids, lawyers, loggers, journalists, miners, farmers, and bank clerks, they all marched off down the country's Main Streets, eager for the glory of war. Many of them - and we encounter many of them in this book - desperately hoped they would be in time "to get in on the fun." This stunning book is about the hell that awaited them in their first battle in France, and about how they dealt with their baptism of fire. The Second Battle of Ypres, 1915, brought the war home to Canada.

HMSO, London, 1994. First UK Edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 10, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiv, 241 pages, many illustrations & drawings, appendices, index. ----------------------------------- How do you design a frail, lightweight, almost unsinkable wooden boat with twin engines and survival equipment for seven men to drop into the sea at 20 feet per second, then prevent it from drifting away, have the parachutes automatically release and lifelines fired out to each side for survivors to grasp? These are some of the questions which are answered in this fascinating tale, the culmination of more than ten years of research. After 50 years it can be told – the stories of the fabulous but little-known wonder craft which fell from the skies.

Urbana, 1999, Univ of Ill, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 230 pages, illus. Wown as the Forgotten War, the "police action" in Korea resulted in almost as many American combat deaths in three years as the Vietnam War did in ten. Yet for many Americans today, the Korean War brings to mind nothing more than the television series "M*A*S*H." William Dannenmaier served in Korea with the U.S. Army from December 1952 to January 1954, first as a radioman and then as a radio scout with the Fifteenth Infantry Regiment. Eager to serve a cause in which he fervently believed-the safeguarding of South Korea from advancing Chinese Communists-he enlisted in the army with an innocence that soon evaporated. His letters from the front, most of them to his sister, Ethel, provide a springboard for his candid and wry observations of the privations, the boredom, and the devastation of infantry life. At the same time these letters, designed to disguise the true d ... Read more

London, Grub street, 2003 UK first edition, , HARD BOUND IN DUST JACKET, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, 416 PAGES, INDEX. ----------------------------------------In the seventeen years since The Daily Telegraph started allotting a special section to obituaries, it has published around 1,000 obituaries of soldiers, as well as almost equal numbers of sailors and airmen. The 100 to be found here, which have never before been collected in book form, were chosen to show the widest range of military experience in both world wars and other twentieth century conflicts. They include those who performed astonishing acts of bravery, such as the New Zealander Charles Upham, who won a Victoria Cross in Crete and a Bar in North Africa, the commando leader "Mad Jack" Churchill and Drum Major Buss, the bugler who rallied the Glosters at the Imjin river in Korea. Among the senior figures are General Mazek, who commanded the Polish 2nd Corps in Normandy, the rigorous Field Marshal Lord Carver an ... Read more

Leo Cooper, London, (1994)., , UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, x, 170 pages,1 map, illustrations ---------------------------------------------------------The chances of any member of a bomber crew in the Second World War completing his allotted thirty missions were remote indeed; even so Jim Davies was less fortunate than most in being shot down over Holland on only his second mission. On the other hand he was extremely lucky to land safely and even more so to find himself among friends. For the next six months he found sanctuary among those incredibly brave Dutch civilians who were prepared to risk torture and certain death for sheltering Allied airmen from their Nazi oppressors. Jim Davies pays a moving tribute to the courage and kindness of those who sheltered him, to nearly all of whom he later had the chance to express his gratitude, some indeed becoming lifelong friends. ----------------------------------------------------------Alas, the escape ...
