Chicago, 1994, Emperor's Press, first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 7 1/2 x 10 1/2, 352 pages , prof illus with period illus & drgs, many maps, complete orders of battle, notes, index. ------------------------------------------------------- Facing the strong and confident armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden, Napoleon had only the bravery of his conscripts and his own fabled mastery of the battlefield to confuse and shatter his opponents. Napoleon inflicted a heavy defeat on the allies at Dresden, only to have it thrown away in the disaster at Kulm, and by his marshals' failures at the battles of the Katzbach, Gross-Beeren, and Dennewitz. Napoleon at Dresden is a panoramic view of the theater of war in Germany over August 1813. Not only covering these five great battles, it also pays close attention to the smaller battles and skirmishes, often critical for the course of the campaign, but many times only the testing ground of a forgotten regiment. ...

2008, Aberjona press, first edition, paper covers, 6x9, VG condition, 38 & 373 pages, 88 photos, , 22 maps, notes, appendices, bibliog. index. ---------------------------------------------- As the Allies arrived at the frontiers of Germany itself in the last autumn of WWII, the Germans responded with a variety of initiatives designed to regain the strategic initiative. While the "Wonder Weapons" such as the V-2 missile are widely recognized, the Volks-Grenadier divisions (VGDs) are practically unknown. Often confused with the "Volkssturm," the Home Guard militia, VGDs have suffered the undeserved reputation as second-rate formations, filled with young boys and old men suited to serve only as cannon fodder. This ground-breaking book shows that VGDs were actually conceived as a new, elite corps loyal to the National Socialist Party and equipped with the finest weapons available. Come follow along with the soldiers of the 272nd VGD's Füsilier Company from their ... Read more

KNIGHT'S CROSS

Nathanson, E. M. and Aaron Bank

New York 1993, Birch Lane Pr, First US edition , hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, 318 pages, end paper maps. First, the true story... "Get Hitler!" That was the secret order given to OSS Captain Aaron Bank in the winter of 1944-45 as massive battles against the Nazi war machine raged across Europe. For Bank, it was his most extraordinary and dangerous assignment, and he relished it. For the Office of Strategic Services, the United States' young, covert agency for aggressive intelligence gathering and unconventional warfare, it was the biggest and most important mission they had ever undertaken. Unable to reveal even to his own men the true purpose of the operation, Bank trained a company of approximately two hundred fighting men, including an ersatz unit of German mountain infantry, a Jager Einheit. By April 1945, after months of training, Bank's Jager Einheit was ready to jump into the Austrian Tyrol, blend with Wehrmacht and SS units operating there, ... Read more

2003 London Leo Cooper, UK reprint edition, Fine/Finer condition, hard bound in dust jacket, reprint of 1972 edition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 224 pages, illustrations, maps, index. ------------------------------------------------The defence of Calais in late May 1940 remains one of the most striking examples of selfless courage and sacrifice. With the German Army looking certain to cut off the British Expeditionary Force's escape from Dunkirk, Winston Churchill in one of his first actions as Prime Minister ordered 29 Brigade across the Channel as a desperate diversionary measure and so save the BEF from wholesale annihilation and capture,. The brigade made up of elite battalions of the King's Royal Rifle Corps, Rifle Brigade and Queen Victoria Rifles, had orders not to evacuate or surrender. Indeed a number were close friends of Churchill's which made his decision all the harder. With the benefit of hindsight, it remains debatable whether the Calais operation was necessary but, be that as it may ... Read more

White Mane, 1996 VG/VG condition, hard bound in dj, 6x9, x, 196 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------New Market, Winchester and Cedar Creek are names that stand out among the important battles of the 1864 Shenandoah Campaign. Assistant Surgeon Alexander Neil of the 12th West Virginia Regiment was there. His observations, insights, and descriptions of that campaign provide an important perspective, not only on regimental life in the Valley Campaign, but also on the practice of medicine during the Civil War.-------------------------For two years the Union had endured defeat after defeat in the Shenandoah Valley. Federal soldiers had dubbed it the "Valley of Humiliation." The struggle there soon became an intensely bloody one for both armies. Initially, Franz Sigel's and David Hunter's failures allowed Jubal Early to seize the initiative for the Confederacy. His troops were soon poised before the gates of Washington.

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the title page. -------------------------------------------------After ferrying General George Washington's troops across the East River and through the hell known as the Battle of Long Island, Captain Isaac Biddlecomb receives a monumental order. He is to transport to France the most powerful secret weapon in the country's arsenal -- scientist, philosopher, and spirit of the enlightenment Dr. Benjamin Franklin. With a new team of men forging through the wintry North Atlantic, and braving the cordon of the Royal Navy, Biddlecomb's seemingly simple mission is just the first volley in a grand scheme: to topple France's neutrality by gaining its vital support, and turn the colonial uprising into a full-scale world war for freedom.

As the war for independence begins in earnest, seagoing American merchants prepare to strike the first blows. None struck more deftly than Isaac Biddlecomb, captain of the Judea, whose smuggling activities were making a mockery of His Majesty's Royal Navy. Pursued by the HMS Rose, he sacrificed the ship he loved to the depths, together with the fortune he stood to gain, rather than surrender. Pursued by the enraged forces of King George, Isaac disguises himself as a merchant seaman. He is reunited with Ezra Rumstick, a comrade and fierce rebel, as the revolution gathers momentum. On a brig bound for Jamaica, and now serving as a lowly mate, fate tests Isaac's mettle as he is captured by the enemy and faces a life of servitude under the mad captain and sadistic crew of the H.M.S Icarus. New York, 1996, Pocket Books, First US paper edition, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG condition, 324 pages, drawing, map, glossary.

With one jerk of a lanyard, one shell arching into the sky, years of tension exploded into civil war. And for those men who did not know in which direction their loyalty called them, it was a time for decisions. Such a one was Lieutenant Samuel Bowater, an officer of the United States Navy, a native of Charleston, South Carolina. Hard pressed to abandon the oath he swore to the United States, but unable to fight against his home state, Bowater accepts a commission in the nascent Confederate navy, where captains who once strode the quarterdecks of the world's most powerful ships are now assuming command of paddle wheelers and towboats. Taking charge of the armed tugboatCape Fear, and then the ironclad Yazoo River, Bowater and his men go toe to toe with the powerful Union navy, standing up boldly in the face of the overwhelming force and resources of ...

NEW YORK 2000 , St. Martin's press, US first edition ,6 1/2 x 9 1/2, hard bound in dust jacket, 376 pages, 11 illustrations. -=---------------------------------------------------Did we “know” the gas chambers were there? Could we have destroyed them? Why didn’t we bomb? For decades, debate has raged over whether the Allies should have bombed the gas chambers at Auschwitz and the railroads leading to the camp, thereby saving thousands of lives and disrupting Nazi efforts to exterminate European Jews. Was it truly feasible to do so? Did failure to do so simply reflect a callous indifference to the plight of the Jews or was it a realistic assessment of a plan that could not succeed? In this volume, a number of eminent historians address and debate those very questions. -----------------------------------------------------Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, this is the first paperback edition of a book that has been ...
