Bloomington Indiana University Press 1996, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xix, 499 pages, illus, maps, roster, notes, bibliog, index. .................................................................. "On Many a Bloody Field" follows one of the Civil War's most famous combat organizations - Company B, 19th Indiana Volunteers of the Iron Brigade - in a vivid account of ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances. Alan Gaff follows the men from recruitment through mustering out, from the tedium of camp to the excitement of battle. Marches and battles are described in detail, but Gaff also devotes close attention to how the war affected individuals, both physically and emotionally. Formed into a brigade with the 2nd, 6th, and 7th Wisconsin, these Indiana soldiers fought their first real battle at Brawner Farm. .................................................... Over four difficult years, they fought on many a bl ... Read more

Novato 2000, Presidio, US first edition, hard bound w/dj, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6x9, vii, 267 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. The Japanese defense of the Buna area of the northeastern coast of New Guinea was organized around major strong points. Taken together they formed a well-designed complex of mutually supporting bunkers concealed by dense tropical vegetation and sited in such a manner as to cover every possible avenue of approach. It was hot and humid, a mixture of jungle and swamp infested with insects and leeches. Scrub typhus, malaria, dengue fever, and dysentery were epidemic. -------------------------------- The Japanese had already mounted a major attack from Buna across the formidable Owen Stanley Mountains. A meager handful of heroic Australian defenders had managed to stop the attacking Japanese just 30 miles short of their goal, Port Moresby. Possession of Port Moresby, less than 500 miles across the Coral Sea from Australia, would lead to Japanese contro ... Read more

Macdonald & Co. , London, 1971. first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1`/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), xv, 170 pages, illus, maps, index. ....................................... In Norway's Kaafjord, a thousand miles from the nearest British bomber base, but only fifty miles from the route taken by every allied convoy bound for Russia, lurked the 43,000 ton German battleship, Tirpitz. The year was 1943 and Churchill had said, "the whole strategy of the war turns at this period on this ship," so it was vital that "the beast," as he described her, be somehow destroyed or put out of action. Against All Odds is the fantastic story of how a few young men, working in appalling conditions with hastily. improvised and sometimes unreliable equipment, penetrated the massive defences surrounding the Tirpitz and irreparably crippled her. Air attack had failed when the Tirpitz was within reach: attack by surface craft or conventional submarine wa ... Read more

THE THIRD DAY AT GETTYSBURG AND BEYOND

Gallagher, Gary W, editor

Chapel Hill, 1994, Univ. NC pr, First US edition, hrd bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, 6x9, x, 217 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. The six essays in this volume testify to the enduring impact of the Civil War on our national consciousness. Covering subjects as diverse as tactics, the uses of autobiography, and the power of myth-making in the southern tradition, they illustrate the rewards of imaginative scholarship — even for the most intensely studied battle in America's history. The Third Day at Gettysburg and Beyond brings current research and interpretation to bear on a range of pivotal issues surrounding the final day of the battle, July 3, 1863. This revisionist approach begins by expanding our knowledge of the engagement itself: individual essays address Confederate general James Longstreet's role in Pickett's Charge and Union general George Meade's failure to pursue Lee after the fighting. Other essays widen the scope of investigation to look at co ... Read more

Henry Holt, New York 1990, . 1st edition, hard bound w/ dust jacket 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition, x , 342 pages., illus., appendices, bibliog., index, ---------------------- In September of 1939, immediately after he started World War II by sending an invading army into Poland, Adolf Hitler signed an order declaring war on his fellow German citizens—that is, those of his fellow citizens who were crippled, mentally ill, or disabled. The directive was given to two of Hitler's closest associates, Dr. Karl Brandt, his personal physician, and Reichsleiter Philip Bouhler, the chief of his chancellery. They were to set up a program that enabled German physicians to kill anyone deemed "unworthy of life." Under the influence of the then-fashionable apocalyptic theories of eugenics, many German doctors greeted this blood-chilling idea as a "technological breakthrough" and an example of the new regime's advanced thinking, while the majority simply accepted it without ...

Iowa State Press, Ames, Iowa, 1991, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, (small spot of wear on dj corner), xiv, 122 pages, illus, notes, bibliog., index. .............................................. Such Are the Trials: The Civil War Diaries of Jacob Gantz is a look into the lives of two people—an Iowa cavalryman and his great-great grand daughter, Kathleen Davis, a Texan who spent over thirty years of her life unaware of her ties to the North. When Gantz's diaries were found, Davis was forced to face "the disquieting revelation . . . that he wrote them wearing blue—not gray." As Davis embarks on a search for her heritage, she reads about Gantz's journeys through the South with the Fourth Iowa Cavalry. Her research takes her to Iowa and the tomb of her ancestor, where she acknowledges her roots.

Annapolis 1993, Naval Institute, First US edition , hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 10 x 12, 190 pages, prof. illus with 250 illus & drgs. ....................................................................... The advent of steam power was the greatest innovation in maritime transport since the development of the three-masted ship in the Middle Ages, but it took nearly a century to become established, and the story of its development in Europe, the Far East and in America is the subject of this volume. There were good reasons, technical and economic, why the process was so lengthy and why sail remained a viable option in so many trades throughout the century. As a mode of propulsion, the paddle wheel had many drawbacks and was only ever of limited use; even with the perfection of the screw propeller in the 1840s, progress was restrained by the uneconomic nature of early machinery, and it was not until efficient compound engines became widely available in the 1870s t ...

Annapolis, 1996, USNI press, First US edition w/dj, VG/VG condition 10x12, 143 pages, prof illustrated. ........................................................ Reaching back into prehistory and the earliest evidence provided by archaeology, this volume explores the varied lines of development from the most primitive watercraft to the first real sea-going ships. The floats, rafts and dugouts of the pre-Bronze age period are followed by early planked boats and the increasingly sophisticated constructions of Celtic and Norse cultures. In the Mediterranean the evolution of the sailing ship becomes separated from that of the oared vessel, and non-European developments in the Near and Far East are also covered, based largely on recent archaeological investigation. Apart from chapters on the craft themselves there are sections on related topics, including early pilotage and seamanship, and an evaluation of what modern reconstructions can tell us about the performance of ancient ship types. ...

D-DAY - THOSE WHO WERE THERE

Gardiner, Juliet

Collins & Brown, London, 1994. Hardcover w/dj,. 1st Edition. Hardback First Edition in Fine condition; 192 pp with b/w photographs in the text, 7 x 10,numerous illustrations, bibliog, index. -------------------------D-Day: 6 June 1944, the day the Allied troops landed on the Normandy beaches and began the final assault on Hitler's `Fortress Europe'. The logistics of landing almost 250,000 men on a 60-mile stretch of heavily fortified coastline are almost unimaginable. By Whitsun 1944, Britain had begun to resemble a vast military warehouse, with jeeps and trucks parked along what seemed like every road in the south and west of England, tanks ranked in carparks and forecourts, and rows upon rows of bombs stored under tarpaulin in fields — all labelled `Europe'. The roads were jammed with soldiers in transit, all trains were requisitioned for the troops, and women knew that their menfolk 'somewhere in southern England' might be one of that perilous first wave across the Ch ...

When Joel Penderek is kidnapped from his New Jersey home, the unknown clandestine Russian organization The Scales of Justice takes credit for the abduction.

But before the group can do so, James Bond receives word that the underground movement has snatched the wrong man. The real Vorontsov lives in Florida, where he has been under Israeli surveillance.

New York 1989, Putnam US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 319 pages. Britain's greatest spy returns, but not even James Bond has envisioned such a diabolical planl In a curious change of assignment, James Bond, Commander RN, is transferred from the Foreign Office to active sea duty aboard the. aircraft carrier HMS Invincible. M's explanation is twofold: Without blowing his cover, which must appear absolutely real to all involved, Bond must "mind" the British, Russian, and American admirals and their staffs on board the ship as observers during the annual fourweek exercise in the North Sea. This is not a casual baby-sitting assignment. Regardless of the existing cooperation between the three superpowers, it is a situation laden with deadly possibilities. And the deadliest one of all explodes into reality when terrorists hijack Invincible and hold the ship hostage for a price higher than any country is willing to pay. Surrounded by ... Read more
