Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, 1991. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xi, 336 pages, maps, illus, bibliog., index, notes. ------------------------------------- For almost four desperate years, from 1939 to mid-1943, the British and American navies fought a savage, losing battle against German submarine wolfpacks. The Allies might never have turned the tide of that historic battle without an intelligence coup, and the race to break the German U-boat codes is one of the last great untold stories of World War II. Now David Kahn, the world's leading historian of cryptology, brings to life this tense, behind-the-scenes drama for the first time. -----------------------------------------------------------------Soon after war broke out, Hitler's U-boats began to sever Allied lifelines. Out in the gray wasteland of the North Atlantic, submarines prowled; at night, the sky lit up with the flames of exploding tankers. To meet the growing crisis ... Read more

New York 1983, Abbeville press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 10 x 10 1/2, Fine/Fine condition, glossy page stock, 216 pages, massively illustrated in color & B&W. .......................................................... Forty years ago, in World War 11, the U. S. Eighth Air Force began a precision daylight bombing offensive against Nazi Germany from airbases in rural England. In support of this mission, nearly 350,000 Americans of widely different backgrounds were temporarily transported to English soil. For many of them this was a period of great danger-even death for some; it was also a time of endless fatigue, comradeship, boredom, and, sometimes, the excitement of radically new experiences and emotions. For most, however, this mission was destined to be the one great adventure of their young lives. .........................................................At a certain point in life, everyone likes to look back, to revive memories of past g ...

Paragon House, New York, 1990. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, VG/VG CONDITION, xv, 237 pages, bibliog., index.. ............................................ Last stands, in which an elite unit of soldiers with little chance for victory chooses to fight to the last man, have occurred in every age of mankind's martial past. These spectacular defeats are remembered as well, if not better than, the great victories. While military engagements always involve soldiers who flee, or are ordered to leave, the story of men who fight a hopeless battle to the end continues to inspire our compassion and fascinate historians. Until now, last stands have been studied individually and have remained much glorified yet little understood events. ................................................................The first book of its kind, Glorious Defiance is an analytical treatment of last stands in battles throughout history, from ancient Greece to Vietnam. Using primary sources, De ... Read more

New York 1992, Oxford Univ. Press, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, ( dj price clipped), xv, 291 pages, illus, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------- When the African-American dancer Josephine Baker visited Berlin in 1925, she found it dazzling. "The city had a jewel-like sparkle," she said, "the vast cafes reminded me of ocean liners powered by the rhythms of their orchestras. There was music everywhere." Eager to look ahead after the crushing defeat of World War 1, Weimar Germany embraced the modernism that swept through Europe and was crazy over jazz. But with the rise of National Socialism came censorship and proscription: an art form born on foreign soil and presided over by Negroes and Jews could have no place in the culture of a "master race." ......................................................................................................................................... ...

DOCTORS UNDER HITLER

Kater, Michael H

University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1989. US first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, Fine/Fine condition, xii, 426 pages, extensive notes, bibliog. and index. ------------------------------In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, Michael Kater examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atrocities, to those who actively resisted the regime's perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behavior fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment's problematic relationship to the Nazi past.

New York, 1996, St Martin's press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, 337 pages...............................................................It has long been believed that when Cox & Company (London) was destroyed in a World War II bombing raid, with it was also destroyed the legendary tin dispatch-box of Dr. Watson. This box, containing notes on dozens of Sherlock Holmes's adventures never released to the public, is perhaps the Holy Grail for Holmesian scholars and fans. Now the miraculous truth can be toldthe last casebooks of Sherlock Holmes have survived!............................................................When Watson died intestate, the box found its way into the hands of renowned Philadelphia book collector Mr. R. To his dismay, the collector discovered that the box contained primarily Watson's rough notes, so he set about commissioning writers to complete them for his own amusement.

World War II: A Visual Encyclopedia

Keegan, John, Gen. Ed

New York, 2002, reprint edition, oversize paper covers, 9 x 12, glossy page stock, 512 pages, massively illustrated. .................................................World War II, for many historians, is considered the defining moment of the twentieth century. The world is still coping with fallout from the war in this, the next century. It was a time when there were heroes born, devils destroyed, and technologies developed. It is no surprise, therefore, that there are many encyclopedias on the history of World War II. This work is a worthy complement to such recent reference works as The Oxford Companion to World War II (1995) and World War II: The Encyclopedia of the War Years, 1941-1945 (Random, 1996). Keegan, a well-known editor of many other works on military history, states that his goal is to present a factual, chronological, and biographical history of World War II in one concise volume. He succeeds, though there are some glaring errors of fact (for example, the entry on Japanese Emperor ... Read more

Priced accordingly ----------------------------------------------- This history of the QVRs (as they became known), covers the period from the earliest days up to the Great War in an appendix (185 pages) at the end of the book. According to tradition they were the descendants of The Duke of Cumberland's Corps of Sharpshooters which was inaugurated in September 1803.

Shortly after the outbreak of war in August 1914 a second line battalion was formed and in April 1915 a third line, thus we had 1/9th, 2/9th and 3/9th Battalions. The 1st London Divi ... Read more

London, 1981, F Warne, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 261 pages, appendices, ilus, maps, bibliog, index. ............................The majority of readers will have heard of the legendary General George Patton and his US Third Army—in connection with Normandy, the Ardennes and the final defeat of Germany —but what were they doing between September and December 1 944 ? .......... At the beginning of this period, the Allies outran their supply lines from the Normandy beaches and ground to a halt for a few days, allowing the Germans to rebuild their shattered lines. Patton was on the Meuse at Verdun and with his sights firmly set on the still distant Rhine. In between, however, there was still the River Moselle and the famous fortress of Metz, which was to take him three months of weary struggle to subdue. ................ Given a temporary breathing space by the Americans' supply problems, a scratch force of German troops dug themselves into ... Read more
