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

THE MUTINY RUN

New York, 1994, St. Martin's, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG CONDITION, ( light dj edge wear), 6 x 8 1/2, 298 pages. --------------------------------------- Battles at sea, derring-do on land and a hefty dose of military intrigue fill the pages of this crisp new historical from Eccles ( The Barbary Run ). In the spring of 1797, most of the British Navy is tied up by a mutiny. The 54-gun Adamant , however, berthed in Liverpool, has avoided the mutineers and must soon venture forth to raid the French barge fleet at Brest. (The French and Dutch plan to invade England or Ireland soon.) Aboard the Adamant is 18-year-old midshipman John Lawson, a strapping son of Yorkshire yeoman stock about to set sail on an adventure that will include combat, capture, espionage, a budding romance and flight.

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 1979, Crowell, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG / VG - ( dj has several small tears & light wear at extremities), 6x9, 271 pages. `Aircraftsman T. E. Shaw-known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia-died in what the jury decided was a motorcycle accident just eleven weeks after his retirement from the Royal Air Force. But what if Lawrence had been planning to resurrect his old image as the mythic savior of the Arabs? What if he was plotting with Palestinian and Arab leaders to launch an uprising against the ever increasing number of Jewish immigrants to the Middle East in 1935? One might then speculate that an "interested party"-either militant Zionists, the British Government, or the Emir of Transjordan-was responsible for the mysterious black car seen at the site of Lawrence's death by the only witness to the "accident." And one might consider it likely that this car was in fact the instrument of Lawrence's death.

New York, 1995, First US edition, hard bound with dust jacket, VG/VG ( remainder mark on bottom page block). 6x9, 293 pp,maps, illus. .......................................................... A detailed account of the 100 year conflict between the Victorian British and the Ashanti Empire of West Africa, now Ghana. From the first contact in 1817, thru three large colonial campaigns in 1873-74, 1896 and 1900 , which covers the well known siege of Kumassi in 1900. In 1817, the first British envoy to meet the king of the Asante of West Africa was dazzled by his reception. A group of 5,000 Asante soldiers, many wearing immense caps topped with three foot eagle feathers and gold ram's horns, engulfed him with a "zeal bordering on frenzy," shooting muskets into the air. The envoy was escorted, as no fewer than 100 bands played, to the Asante king's palace and greeted by a tremendous throng of 30,000 noblemen and soldiers, bedecked with so much gold that his party had to ave ...

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 ...

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 ...

Wimborne Minster, 1995, New Era Writer's Guild, UK first edition, paper covers, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG condition, 199 pages, illus, maps, bibliog, appendices, index. ----------------------------------------------------------- This convoy must not get through-U-boats must pursue, attack and sink.' 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 ...

Praeger, New York, 1991. US first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, x, 238 pages, illus., notes, bibliog, index. ---------------------------------Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of America's entry into World War II, this volume chronicles the careers of eight USA Zone commentators who worked for Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels. 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. ------------------------ ...

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 ...
