London, 1976, Batsford, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket (price clipped), 7x10, VG/VG condition, 144 pages, 172 illustrations. The earliest pictures in this book are of sailors who had fought at Trafalgar. Included in the latest are men who were to take part in World War I. The period covered by these old photographs in fact witnessed greater and more widespread naval changes than any before or since. It is this fact which makes the pictures so valuable historically, as a graphic source, apart altogether from their obvious pictorial attractiveness. Life at Sea, Work at Sea, Training, Campaigns, The Royal Marines, Leisure, Personalities, and Uniforms are some of the themes into which the material has been divided.In an expert Introduction, Dr A. P. McGowan, Deputy Keeper of the National Maritime Museum, summarises the technological and social changes in the Royal Navy during these years. The pictures themselves and the commentaries on them have been contributed by John Fabb,

London 1993, Ian Allan, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2, glossy page stock, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 128 pages, well illustrated. ------------------------------------------------It was Winston Churchill who summed up the importance of the role of Fighter Command during the dark days of the Battle of Britain, when all that stood between Britain and potential defeat were the squadrons of Fighter Command, when he commented that 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few'. The 'Few', the men of Fighter Command, whose careers were graphically portrayed in the film 'The Battle of Britain' were based at airfields, like Tangmere and Biggin Hill, that have entered into legend. ----------------------------------------------------In his latest book, which complements ideally his earlier volume of RAF bomber airfields of World War 2, Jonathan Falconer examines the history of the various Fighter Command bases occupied by ...

Falls, Cyril

  • Quantity available: 1
New York 1943, Oxford Univ. Press, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/4 x 7 1/2, VG/VG- ( dj shows light wear and chipping at extremities & price clipped ), 186 pages, index. Captain Cyril Falls, Military Correspondent of the London Times and author of The Nature o f Modern Warfare, here discusses those elements of strategy, tactics, and logistics by which man has waged warfare since the Stone Age. Contending that consideration of the present war, or any specific war, cannot be divorced from war as a whole, Captain Falls deals with the whole subject of war chiefly in terms of strategy, and with the present war in terms of tactics. In great detail Captain Falls discusses five principles of warfare: concentration, or economy of force; protection; surprise; aggressive reconnaissance, or readiness to fight for information; and the undeviating thrust, sometimes called maintenance of the objective. This discussion leads to a survey of five elements or characteristics of warfar ... Read more

London 1992, Cassell, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, , 8 1/2 x 11, 160 pp, over 100 illus & maps. A comprehensive review of all colonial campaigns in India. The rich and exotic sub-continent of India - the jewel in Britain's Imperial Crown - fascinated Victorian England. A handful of the nineteenth century's greatest adventurers made their names and fortunes there, while many thousands at home avidly read the first-hand accounts reproduced in the pages of this book, describing the battles and gruelling campaigns which secured Britain's busy but relatively short tenure of the continent. From the conquest of Sind in 1843, when Sir Charles Napier defeated the Baluchi army and annexed the kingdom, to the Indian Mutiny of 1857-58 that outraged world opinion, Donald Featherstone has constructed a revealing account of the British Empire's most complex and fascinating period. The text is illustrated with 100 engravings, taken from maga ... Read more

Annapolis 2002 Naval Institute, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2,FINE/FINE CONDITION xv, 270 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------According to legend, Lord Nelson disregarded a fatally flawed order to withdraw from a devastating cannon barrage off Copenhagen by monitoring battle signals through a telescope with his blind eye. Instead of retreating, he ordered his ship, HMS Elephant, to hoist the engage-more-closely signal flag, and transformed certain defeat into a mythic triumph for both England and himself. Written by the leading Danish authority on the period, this splendid work brings to life Nelson’s historic 1801 victory, immortalized by his famous "turning a blind eye" to his superior’s orders. As well as describing the brilliance of the British tactics, the work reveals the desperate action, great bravery, and appalling casualties suffered by the Danish defenders. This fresh perspective is sure to please Ne ... Read more

Scouring long-out-of-print books and dusty archives, veteran writer and merchant marine officer Bruce Felknor has collected the most dramatic of these stories from all of America's wars through World War II into a single comprehensive illustrated volume. Excerpts from such authors as Winston Churchill, Samuel Eliot Morison, and Lowell Thomas are combined with eyewitness accounts—many never before published—by heroes, victims, and survivors. Those profiled include Capt. Thomas Boyle and the crew of his Baltimore schooner, Capt. Jonathan Haraden and the cr ... Read more

New York 1985, Thames & Hudson,US First edition , hard bound in dust jacket, , 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, 240 pages, 68 illus & battle maps, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------When did war begin? Archaeologists and historians have in the past been curiously reluctant to study the early history of organized warfare. Standard military accounts tend to start with the Graeco-Persian wars and to lay undue emphasis on the pre-eminence of Greek heavy infantry. But, as this strikingly original and entertaining book shows, the origins of war can be traced back, not to the Iron Age, or even to the Bronze Age, but to the emergence of settled life itself nearly 10,000 years ago. The military revolution that occurred at that timethe major new weapons, the massive fortifications, the creation of strategy and tactics- ultimately gave rise to the great war machines of ancient Egypt, Assyria and Persia which dominated the Near East to the time of Alexander the Great.& ...

(very minor dj edge wear).--------------------------------------------------- What caused the fall of Rome? Since Gibbon's day scholars have hotly debated the question and come up with answers ranging from blood poisoning to rampant immorality and excessive bureaucratization. In recent years, however, the most likely explanation has been neglected: was it not above all else a military collapse? Professor Ferrill believes it was, and sets out his case in this provocative book.------------------------------------------------------In the last decade of the fourth century AD one emperor - Theodosius - still ruled over an Empire larger than that of the great Augustus, and commanded a massive army of several hundred thousand men. Less than eighty years later, both Empire and army in the West had been wiped out. How did this happen? Barbarian invasions certainly played t ... Read more

ROCKET

Ferte, Sir Philip Joubert De La

  • Quantity available: 1
NY, Philosophical Library, 1957, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG- condition ( dj shows medium chipping and wear, edge of pages very lightly stained), 190 pages, illustrated, index. ......................................... The author prefaces his book on rockets with a short historical account of their evolution; how they had been seriously considered both in the East and the West as potential weapons of war; and their introduction as successful innovations on such occasions as when Sir Sidney Smith's expedition against Boulogne in 1805 was supported by boats capable of firing salvos. But although experiments progressed in Europe and the United States, with scant fuss or favour, the world was to be embroiled in a second global war before the terrifying results of the German experiments were explosively made manifest in this field of warfare. As Sir Philip Joubert emphasizes, the Treaty of Versailles was instrumental in creating an incentive for the Germans ... Read more
