Toronto 1990 , First Canadian paper edition , McGill-Queens Univ Pr, 6x9, Fine condition, xx, 360 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. German submarines penetrated Canadian waters during the Second World War to within 172 miles of Quebec City They sank ships, landed spies, laid mines, built an automatic weather station, undertook forays to rescue escaped German POWs, and forced the Canadian government to close the St Lawrence River and Gulf to Allied shipping. The U-boats constituted a serious threat to North American security and a major challenge to coastal and convoy defence. The deployment of minesweepers and escorts, the placement of harbour defences, and the planning of convoy routes were triggered by genuine fears that Halifax, St John's, and inland ports and convoys on the St Lawrence might be blockaded or even attacked by one of these most sinister of maritime weapons. German successes reveal the extent of Canada's unpreparedness. Hadley focuses on the exploits of ... Read more

Oh well: a great adventure ensues, taking them to places no one has ever heard of, then or now -- leading to narrow escapes, love, intrigue, and (of course) high adventure.

Montreal, 1998, McGill-Queen's, Canadian paper reprint, 5 x 7 1/2, VG CONDITION, 286 pages, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Covering the years between the end of the Hundred Years War and the beginning of the Thirty Years War, this book explains the part played in the lives of individuals in the early modern phase of European history. It starts with a survey of conflicts and an analysis of the 'military reformation' in the ways in which wars were fought, and goes on to investigate the problems of recruitment in an age when those taking part in wars formed a society of their own. The book concludes with a study of the impact of war on civilians, and the more pervasive but indirect impact on them of war-induced shifts in the economy, the incidence of taxation and the nature of government.

Down East Books, Camden, Maine, 1985. 2nd US printing, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG CONDITION, ( light dj edge wear ), 7 x 10, 311 pages, illus, bibliog. ...................................................... On an "I will if you will" dare, John Haley enlisted in the 17th Maine Regiment in August 1862 "for three years, unless sooner discharged." ("Discharged, shot, or starved" would have been more accurate, Haley wryly observed.) Though a reluctant soldier at first, he went on to fight steadfastly in the Army of the Potomac for nearly three years, participating in some of the most significant clashes of the Civil War. With typical self-deprecation, Haley described himself as "an indifferent soldier, present all the time." But what a time it was: the green troops of the 17th were thrown almost at once into the bloodiest one-day battle of the war, at Sharpsburg (Antietam). And the Maine men were there to the end, at Appomattox, where Haley's regi ... Read more

Washington 1989 , Smithsonian, First edition, Hard bound w/dj, Fine/Fine condition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 , xx , 323 pp , illus , maps , diagrams , notes , bibliog , index . ------------------------------------- Strike from the Sky is the first book to trace the evolution of battlefield air attack and its impact on military operations worldwide. Noted aerospace historian Richard P. Hallion probes the context in which air-land operations occurred and how they influenced the outcome of specific battles and campaigns. While it is popularly believed that the idea of "air-land battle" came about within the last two decades, air-land attack actually began as early as World War I. Even though aircraft development was in a primitive stage, air-land attack by air and land forces working together had a deadly synergy; for example, battlefield air interdiction played a decisive role in the collapse of Turkish forces in Palestine during the summer of 1917. At first only of nuisance value, air a ... Read more

Patrick Stephens, England, 1986. Paperback. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition, 1st Printing. 6 X 8 1/2, . With 224 pages and about 200 photos. -------------------------In Britain, Europe, the Western Desert and the Far East, throughout the Second World War, fighter pilots were ready to 'Scramble' at a moment's notice to repel enemy attacks of fighters, bombers or unmanned flying bombs. This book is their story, but it is also the story of the hundreds of men and women who worked, often under seemingly impossible conditions, to keep the fighters in the air. Told through the reminiscences of Servicemen who survived the ordeal, but also relating the stories of many whose devotion to duty cost them their lives, this real life drama captures the valour, the hardships and the humour of a fighter airfield at war.
