Kettering, Silver Link., 1991, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11, 192 pages, profusely illustrated, appendices, index. --------------------------------------------------------------Three hundred years exactly since it was raised by Charles II, the last stand of Colours of the King's Own Royal Regiment (Lancaster) was laid up in the Regimental Chapel in Lancaster Priory and Parish Church on 13 July 1980. Using some 300 superb photographs, most of which have never before been published, Stuart Eastwood tells the story of the King's Own from its formation as the 2nd Tangier Regiment in 1680 to its amalgamation with the Border Regiment in 1959. The book provides an insight not only into the history of the Regiment, but also its traditions, achievements, personalities, and its special connection with North Lancashire and especially the City of Lancaster, where the Regimental Depot was located from 1880 to 1959. The King's Own, which had the unique dis ... Read more

ANOTHER WORLD 1897-1917

Eden, Anthony

Doubleday, Garden City, NY, 1977. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, xiv, 175 pages, illus., index. ------------------------------------ In his last work of autobiography, the late Anthony Eden, Lord Avon, turned to a period of which he had never written—his early years. The previous three volumes of political memoirs already stand as record of his life's work. By contrast, ANOTHER WORLD is Eden's highly personal account of the formative years that so affected this world statesman: his childhood at Windlestone, his family's country manor; his travels through Europe with his family; his school days at Eton; and finally the devastating experiences at an early age in World War I. Raised in an aristocratic household with a beautiful mother, a titled father whose vast art collection was to be his children's legacy, and surrounded by artists, writers, and politicians, Anthony Eden was schooled for a way of life that was not to be. For this measured, ... Read more

New York, 1987, St. Martin's, US 1st edition, hard bound w/DJ, VG/VG cond. ( very light dj edge wear), 6x9, 248 pp, illus. ------------------------Since the end of World War II, the destruction of Dresden often has been cited as the most dreadful example of civilian-targeted firebombing, but this book amply demonstrates that several "Dresdens" were perpetrated against Japan even before the atomic strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Edoin (prolific American military historian Edwin P. Hoyt, author of The Bloody Road to Panmunjum, etc.) describes the development of the American bombing campaign under the no-quarter leadership of Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay and the effect on the ground as witnessed and suffered by Japanese city-dwellers while "the fire dragon roamed the streets." The blast-and-burn aspect is only one element in the powerful narrative; Edoin includes the debate over the proper employment of the B-29 "Superfortress," the hopeless civil-defense efforts and ...

This was the signal that Admiral Donitz sent to the commanders of the 21 U-boats of the Markgraf wolf-pack on the 9th September 1941. Sixty three merchant ships, many of them British; a number old and dilapidated and all slow and heavy-laden with vital supplies for the United Kingdom, were strung out in 12 columns abreast, covering an area of 25 miles of inhospitable ocean. They set sail from 'Nova Scotia at a time when the. German U-boats were sinking more than one hundred ships a month. Their escort of one destroyer and three corvettes of the Royal Canadian Navy, all untried in combat, was hopelessly outclassed when the battle for SC42 commenced when it was in sight of the coast of G ...

And here's the book that tells us.At the beginning, Lieutenant-Commander Edwards takes us down with him in a submarine and shows us how it works. We dive at dawn. The dawn is slow in coming . . .

DONITZ AND THE WOLF PACKS

Edwards, Bernard

London 1999 Brockhampton Press, UK reprint edition , hard bound w/dj, Fine/Fine condition , 6x9, 240 pp, illus & maps. ---------------------It can be argued that the most critical battle of the Second World War was the one the Allied forces waged to keep the trade routes open. Without food and raw materials for the war effort, the result would surely have been different - certainly, victory would have been prejudiced and delayed. The U-boat, the submarine of the German Navy, was a hidden predator, which would steal up on its prey out of sight beneath the waves. The tactics were much like the wild wolf of the forest, whose grey camouflage would keep it out of sight until it chose to attack. Just as the wolf was even more effective when it roamed in groups, cornering its quarry before catching it, so Admiral Karl Donitz chose to use the grey hulls of his submarines in packs - `wolf packs'. This simple yet stunningly successful tactic came very close to winning the Battle ... Read more

Annapolis, 1995, Naval Institute press, first US edition, hard bound w/dj, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 192 pages, VG/VG condition, illus, maps, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------- Since a simple cannon was first mounted on sailing ships and the warship was thus born, it has had but one principal resolve: to engage and destroy the enemy in action. In the early examples of sea warfare the guns were fixed and hence only by manoeuvring the ship itself could they be aimed, and so after much aligning of fleets alongside each other the power and weight of the all important first broadside was truly decisive. Despite the huge advances in gun design, mounting, loading and aiming that accompanied the evolution of the warship, this single factor in naval warfare remained relevant throughout. Even in the final warship against warship encounters in late World War two after the gun had been eclipsed by naval air power, the commander who first fired the heaviest and most accurate salvo immediat ...

Brockhampton Press, London. , 1998. Reprint edition in Fine / Fine condition, 8 x 10, 256 pages, massively illustrated in B&W photos, drawings and maps, notes, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------------iI was nothing short of a revolution — in military strategy — that caused a few Panzer divisions, with motorized infantry and air support, to cut a swathe across a continent boasting better armaments and an experienced military hierarchy. Within one calendar year, the greater part of western Europe was firmly gripped by the Wehrmacht, and the might of the Third Reich was able to turn to its eastern boundaries with a confident expectation of similar success. The tactics of this revolution, which saw men and machines deploy at a pace and with a power unprecedented and unforeseen, have been examined and analysed from that day to this, as has the inability of great European nations to counter it. -------------------------------------------------Panzer represents a ...

Praeger, New York, 1991.

Drawing upon a variety of documentary sources - letters written by the subjects to family, friends and colleagues; treason trial transcripts; the contents of the BBC's wartime monitoring service; and FBI case files on the broadcasters - the author explores each broadcaster's political and personal motivations and the influence of their broadcasts. "Berlin Calling" also offers a glimpse into the world of Nazi bureaucracy and the organization of Nazi radio propaganda and highlights the uneven US approach to the indictment, prosecution, conviction and sentencing of these radio traitors. ------------------------ ...

C Chambers, DSC, RN. in 1947. xiii, 404 pages, 3 portraits, index --------------------------------------------Admiral Sir Phipps Hornby, GCB (27 April 1785 - 19 March 1867) was a prominent and experienced British Royal Navy officer of the nineteenth century. Hornby served on frigates throughout most of his wartime experience, which included witnessing the Nore Mutiny first hand aged 12 in 1797. Later, commanding his own sixth-rate HMS Volage in 1811, Hornby played a vital role in the British victory at the Battle of Lissa. At Lissa a British squadron under William Hoste overwhelmed a French force more than twice their own strength, Volage combating a much larger ship alone for several minutes and taking numerous casualties, including Hornby, who was wounded.-------- ...

In Moscow, the Soviet leader lies dying. Meanwhile, Georgi Kirov, a Russian major exiled to Afghanistan for a less than deferential attitude toward his superiors, finds himself breaking a captured American agent with surprising ease.

London 1984, Andre Deutsch, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG- condition,( dj shows light crazing to clear coat) 587 pp, illus, maps. appendices. ----------------------------------The first six months of 1984 mark the fortieth anniversary of the Allies' tireless efforts to conquer the heights of Monte Cassino, the monastery which was a strategic Italian strongpoint held by units of the German army. The four campaigns faced long odds from the start. The terrain is virtually impassable: a long spine of steep mountains with narrow littorals and rivers draining from the spine—a formidable natural area on which the Germans had skillfully improved. Wherever Allied forces tried to climb, the Germans had perfect cover and observation points. The Allies, able to utilize only a few rutted roads, found themselves endlessly fighting their way across rivers, always under the guns of the German fortifications above them. The battles for Monte Cassino were ... Read more

This book gives a detailed account of what the Second World War was like for the common fighting man. A soldier in the fierce combat around the River Waal in November 1944 recalls: "In the trenches, the December rain and hail, one clear day in four, two hours of windy sunshine a week, mud to the ankles. Some days we lie in mud...." Contrast those conditions with the heat of Burma: "You wipe the sweat out of your eyes, then you feel your heart pounding so violently you think it must burst its cage." ------------------------------------------------------ Or of Guadalcanal, ...
