New York, Knopf, 1996. US First edition, first printing. Fine/Fine in a brown textured-paper dust jacket. 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, vii, 305 pages, frontispiece map of Bosnia, notes, bibliography, index. AUTOGRAPHED EDITION signed signature only on title page --------------------------------------Peter Maass went to the Balkans as a reporter at the height of the nightmarish war there, but this book is not traditional war reportage. Maass examines how an ordinary Serb could wake up one morning and shoot his neighbor, once a friend- -then rape that neighbor's wife. He conveys the desperation that makes a Muslim beg the United States to bomb his own city in order to end the misery. And Maass does not falter at the spectacle of U.N. soldiers shining searchlights on fleeing refugees--who are promptly gunned down by snipers waiting in the darkness. Love Thy Neighbor gives us an unflinching vision of a late-20th-century hell that is also a scathing inquiry into the worst extremes of human nature, it is an ... Read more

New York, 1999, Carroll & Graf , first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6x9, xxxvi, 382 pages, numerous illus & maps, bibliog, index. .................................. This is the seventh in a series of acclaimed histories by the leading chronicler of the First World War. It describes the first momentous months of 1918 when the long stalemate of the trenches was brought to an end by a massive German assault on the Western Front. It broke the British line and it almost broke the British Army. This is the account of the historic battle, the long fighting retreat and the vital stand at Amiens which saved the city, secured the fragile line and caused Ludendorff to call off his first ambitious offensive. But, above all, it is the story of the men who were there the commanders caught in a maze of perplexing dilemmas, the weary, resolute British Tommies, the German boys exulting in their victory, the French poilus rushed up to stiffen the defence, the ...

THE SAS IN ACTION

Macdonald, Peter

London 1990, Sidgwick & Jackson, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10, FINE / FINE CONDITION, glossy page stock, 192 pages, prof. illustrated in B&W and color. ----------------------THE SAS IN ACTION is about the modern SAS: its roles, its actions, its training, its enemies; and its pursuit of excellence. For many the SAS are the black-clad rescuers of Princes Gate but in reality they are much more. The core of the book examines how the Regiment maintains its reputation, taking an in-depth look at its punishing training regime the constant physical, mental and intellectual pressure that begins with selection, carries on unabated through continuation training and ends only when an individual leaves the SAS.

SOMME

Macdonald, Lyn

London 1984, Papermac ( Macmillan), UK paper edition, 2nd impression, paper covers, , 6x9, VG/VG condition, xviii, 366 pages, illus, maps, bibliog, index. --------------------------- Somme, July 1916. For almost seventy years the very name of the battle has epitomised all the horror and hardship of the First World War. There was hardly a family in the land who had not seen at least one son join up in the heady innocence and enthusiasm that swept the country in 1914. The Battle of the Somme was their baptism of fire. A hundred and fifty thousand of the soldiers they proudly called `our boys' died in it; three hundred thousand more were maimed or wounded. ............................................... No modern battle had ever been more meticulously planned. But the front-line soldier knew little of the strategy. His object was to survive, if he could, the relentless punishing shellfire, the ordeal of attack and counter-attack, and to get out again to the dubious comfort of a bill ... Read more

THE EMPTY COPPER SEA

Macdonald, John D

Philadelphia 1978, Lippincott, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG + / Fine, - ( minor scratch on back cover under dj , & minor wear on dj lower spine edge ), 239 pages. When Hub Lawless falls overboard off the Florida coast, it's called a drowning. But no one quite believes it. Not Travis McGee, whose old friend Van Harder, skipper of Hub's boat, is blamed for the mishap. Not the insurance company, with whom Lawless had a two-milliondollar policy. And not Hub's wife, Julie, whose ESP has convinced her that he is dead, but not from drowning. McGee and his friend Meyer travel to Timber Bay, where the Lawless case has people on edge. McGee has to watch his step. Billy Jean Bailey, the piano player at the Western Sky Lounge, wants to love him or kill him, she's not sure which. And Dee Gee Walloway, whom McGee flattened at a party years ago, now wants a rematch. Only John Tuckerman and his sister Gretel have a plausible explanation for all the contradicti ... Read more

Pentland Press, Edinburgh, 1994, UK 2nd printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 201 pages, numerous sketches. ------------------------The Figurehead presents a unique account of life in a destroyer H M S FORTUNE, commanded by an eccentric at odds with both officers and ship's company in the early 1940s during the deepest pit of World War II. With a lively sense of humour and dispassionate feel for the absurd, it describes operations and experience in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian Ocean, complimented by events and the reactions of those on board, the threat of full scale mutiny, a near miss under the bows of a troopship, and disaster narrowly averted in Malta when confronted by a wall of flame. This amusing and colourful memoir of inadequacy, frustration and one major naval defeat with its element of tragedy, is nevertheless a fine tribute to the British sailor, who endured the ferocity of battle, th ...

KOREA : The War Before Vietnam

MacDonald, Callum A

Free Press, 1986, New York, US edition, later printings, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, xx, 330 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. Based on a wealth of official American, British, and Canadian documents-many only recently declassified-Callum MacDonald's Korea presents the clearest, most complete and unbiased account to date of the politics, strategy, and debate surrounding this disturbing (and still unresolved) conflict. Brilliantly dissecting the combatants' motives and tactics both off and on the battlefield, his powerful history traces the war's local origins and global effects, from the sudden prestige it accorded a young Maoist China to the support it rekindled for strengthening the NATO alliance against growing communist might. As MacDonald makes plain, Korea was quite unmistakably the war before Vietnam. Begun as a civil conflict among right and left factions of a former colonial state, the war soon escalated into a superpower showdown and a brutal c ... Read more

Ulysses and The Cruel Sea, here is a major novel of the sea that takes the reader 100 feet down into the confined world of a British submarine during the last days of World War II. It is a story of men at war with the enemy, with themselves—and with their ambition-ridden captain. The Scorpion's last mission is to be a routine patrol of German-held waters. Conflict arises between the captain, who sees the patrol as a last dramatic chance to earn promotion, and his battle-weary men, interested only in survival, as the submarine, under constant attack from enemy destroyers and aircraft, stalks her prey through mine-infested waters.
