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.

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 ...

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 ...

Brutal murders are occurring with alarming similarity in the English countryside: After two strangled bodies with severed tongues are found near London, James Bond learns from a hasty briefing with "M" that the victims were once members of Operation Cream Cakedouble agents against SMERSH, whom he had helped smuggle out of East Germany five years before. But something has gone badly wrong. To save the survivors, who are clearly earmarked for ritual killings, Bond must smoke out the traitor among them. As always there is a catch, but this time M's own head is on the line and Bond must succeed alone, with no help from anyone in the department.

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
