2005 paper reprint of 1982 ed, paper covers, 5 x 7 1/2, VG condition( light sun fade on right side edge of pages), 286 pages, illus, notes, bibliog, index. ...........................................Adventure, religion, politics, amusement: they're all here in abundance, in this vivid account of the upper-class men and women who journeyed the world in medieval days. With information culled from personal writings, chroniclers' notices, and varied financial reports, it presents a surprising and fascinating portrait of the age--including a vision of touring so lavish and comfortable that it puts contemporary travel to shame. And, contrary to expectations, even in those plane-free days, some people covered thousands of miles a year. Among the medieval globetrotters: Sir Thomas Becket; Mary, the daughter of Edward I and a most restless nun; and Bertandon de la Broquiere, the Burgunidan squire who disguised himself as a Turk to join a caravan returning from Mecca.

HENRY V - The Cautious Conqueror

Labarge, Margaret Wade

Stein & Day, 1976, New York, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, 219 pp, illus, map. VG/VG condition. Here is King Henry V - not Shakespeare's or Laurence Olivier's Henry, but the real man. This book sets the record straight, demonstrates convincingly that Henry V was a commander-and a king-who never took unnecessary risks. He fought at Agincourt, though heavily outnumbered, because the alternative was total abandonment of his long-term plans. A man without glamour, he was a master of tactics and strategy. Henry's career brought manifold successes. Though he spent less than a quarter of his nine years' reign in England, his influence was such that, apart from one incipient revolt, the country for the first time in a generation was free of civil strife. And abroad he carried all before him so that at his death he had come literally within two months of seeing his dream of uniting the kingdoms of England and F ... Read more

White Mane, 1994, first edition, Fine/Fine condition, hard bound w/dj, 6x9, xiv, 385 pages, illus, maps, unit roster, notes, bibliog, index --------------------------------------------------------As a front line unit of the Army of Northern Virginia, the Jeff Davis Artillery played an active part in most major campaigns in the Eastern Theater. Also known as Bondurant's Battery, and Reese's Battery, it fought at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Spotsylvania and other major engagements, often winning praise for its steadfastness. However, Lawrence Laboda goes beyond the Battery's combat record to show its day to day challenges. The reader lives the life of a Confederate artilleryman, sharing the unit's frustrations in selecting good officers who will stay with it, finding recruits, horses, food, and dry shelter, while enduring the reorganizations of an army always at war. The history of the Jeff Davis Artillery is also the history of the Army of Northern Virginia. Fr ... Read more

London 1982, Arms & Armour press , English translation of 1978 Copernic French ed, 10 x 11, 1st UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, ( light dj wear ) 191 pages, 24 pages in full color, many of uniforms, and over 400 B&W illus & maps. ------------------------------------------------------------- Lavishly illustrated in colour and black-and-white, Napoleon's War in Spain captures the drama of one of Napoleon's most costly campaigns. Beginning in Portugal in 1807 and ending at the Battle of Toulouse in the spring of 1814, the campaign in Spain and Portugal is a notable example of a war in which the population of a nation pitted itself against the tyranny of an army of occupation. In fact, this campaign was the precursor of the modern `wars of liberation' Fought over seven long and bloody years, the Peninsular War was a running sore for the French, in terms of both men and money. ........................................................ ...

London 1985, Hamlyn, revised edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 1/2 x 12, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 192 PAGES, SEMI-GLOSSY PAPER, many illustrations & maps, notes, bibliog, index. --------------------------------------------------------------------------The Royal Marines were formed in 1664 to fight in the war against the Dutch, and in the three centuries since then have fought by sea and by land in actions throughout the world. Marines took part in the storming of Gibraltar (1704), the seizure of Belle Isle (1761) and the Battle of Bunker Hill (1775). They fought with distinction in the Napoleonic Wars and in the nineteenth century there was rarely a raid, punitive expedition or war in which the Royal Marines did not take part. Indeed, so many battle honours have been won by the Royal Marines that in 1827 George IV chose a globe as their emblem to signify the wide-ranging nature of their exploits. The Marines performed with skill and courage in both World Wars and in the post-war years have und ... Read more

New York, 1995, B & N books, reprint edition, hard bound in dj, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 238 pages, illus, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------------------JACKBOOT: A HISTORY OF THE GERMAN SOLDIER 1713-1945 traces the background and influences that shaped the character of the German soldier from the time of Frederick the Great to the end of the Second World War. ------------------------Frederick the Great was the man who made Prussia into a strong military nation, who trained and built up an immensely powerful army without equal in Europe. He was also the man Hitler most wanted to emulate. The ability of Frederick's army to recover and hit back in the face of tremendous odds is one of the chief qualities inherited by the German army and one which, as at Amiens in 1918 and at the Ardennes in 1945, has been demonstrated again and again. ---------------------------------------------Laffin provides an illuminating account of the attitude of the ind ...

Stroud 1997 , Budding books( Sutton Publ) r/p of 1985 edition, illustrated hard cover, VG/VG CONDITION, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 277 pages, numerous illus, glossary. -----------------------------------------------A large collection of first person accounts of life and combat in the British & Commonwealth armies in France during the Great War. The official histories of World War I are accounts of strategy and tactics, political and logistical considerations, and after reading them a reader might well wonder why they rarely mention soldiers except in terms of military units. Even regimental histories devote much more space to plans and concepts than to the men who were used to implement the plans. ---------------------------------------------------------- But at its lowest level the history of the `Great War' is made up of millions of trivial incidents, for something happened each day to each man – something that made him laugh or cry or sigh. The soldier laughed readily in that era and ... Read more

Phoenix Mill, 1997, Alan Sutton Publ. reprint of 1980 edition, 6 x 9, glossy page stock, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG. condition. 224 pages, prof illustrated. ------------------------------------------------------------------- An analysis of the Allied Gallipoli offensive against the Turks in WW I, with personal accounts interspersed, and an analysis of the top commanders. `Sacred ground of lost endeavour' or `Hell heaped up'? Controversy still rages today about the Gallipoli campaign, inspired by Winston Churchill and designed to knock Turkey out of the First World War, thereby opening a supply route to arms-starved Russia. Was it one of the greatest blunders of the war, misconceived from the start and mishandled by the tacticians? Or was it a strategic masterstroke, ruined by incompetence on the spot? Whichever view is accepted, the campaign was of decisive importance, its failure paving the way first to the collapse of the Imperial Russian army and later to socialist revolutio ... Read more

London 1997 r/p of 1988 edition, Budding Books, hard bound in dust jacket, , Fine/Fine cond. 6 x 9, ix, 214 pp, illus, maps, bibliog, index. .................................................................................British Butchers and Bunglers of World War I is a forceful and probing analysis of the British generals' leadership. For too long, Dr John Laffin maintains, the military reputation of the generals has not been critically enough examined, and he asks how those responsible for such catastrophic defeats were able to retain their commands. Haig, whose army suffered 60,000 casualties on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, was still in command after five months more fighting and another 400,000 casualties. By the war's end the numbers of dead ran into millions, doggedly brave British Empire soldiers who, Dr Laffin believes, were killed, wounded or broken by commanders who were vain, egocentric or incompetent. .................................................... ...

London, J M Dent & Sons, 1970., UK first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 x 9, VG/Good ( dj shows medium edge wear and chipping),. xiv, 306 pages, illus, bibliog., index --------------------After the battle, the tending of the wounded—perhaps 50,000 or more in modern large-scale combat. To the press, the politicians and generals they may be thought of as `casualties' : to the dedicated doctors and their staffs they are men in need of expert help. Throughout history, from the Napoleonic Wars through WW 2, Service doctors have faced not only appalling medical difficulties; they have had to fight apathy, ignorance and hidebound conservatism to win better conditions and treatment for the fighting man. Many have had the misfortune to serve during eras when soldiers and sailors were considered to be as expendable as the missiles they used. Here, for the first time, written by a leading military historian, is the full story of military medicine, of surgeons in the field ; at one end of histo ... Read more
