Stamford, 1987, Longmeadow, reprint edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 282 pages, bibliog. -------------------------------------------------------------------In 1861 a young stock tender in southern Nebraska named James Butler Hickok won his first gun fight. Twenty years later he was known throughout America as the deadliest gunslinger in the West, a two-legged shooting gallery, hero of a thousand tales — each one taller than the last and many of them true. Indian fighter, free-lance Union ally during the Civil War, marshal of Abilene and Hays City during their most "wide open" years, Wild Bill Hickok never needed the embroidery and fantasy that grew up around him during his lifetime. Courage (nearly blind, Wild Bill outdrew and shot gambler Phil Coe); a quick temper (a jigger of whiskey jostled out of his hand, and four men hit the sawdust in a Jefferson County saloon); charm (Mrs. Custer and Calamity Jane were only two of Wild Bill's admirers) ...

French's Forest, 1988, Childs, First Australian edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, ( author wrote several of the volumes of the RAAF official History of WW 2 ). 200 pages. Set on the fictional Pacific island of Balanai in the final stages of World War 11, this novel tells the story of a group of six men-fighter aces -driven to desperate measures by the unreasonable orders of their commanding officer. As the Japanese forces were defeated in major engagements to the north of Balanai and with the 'island hopping' strategy of the US forces, tens of thousands of Japanese soldiers were left behind on the bypassed islands to 'wither on the vine'. The RAAF forces on Balanai were no longer in the front line of the action and their contribution could not affect the end result of the war. However, the commanding officer, former World War I hero, Air Commodore Arnold Tremayne Blandy, desperate to get his men forward with the Americans and be part of the last adva ... Read more

PEPYS - A Biography

Ollard, Richard

New York 1974, Holt, Rinehart & Winston, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG-/VG condition, ( dj price clipped and 4 small tape residue marks on covers ), 368 pages, illus, notes, bibliog, glossary, index. Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) has earned a unique place in English history for two lasting ' creations. The first, for which he will always be best remembered and loved, is his Diary. It is perhaps the most faithful and vivid account of a man's daily life ever written. His second achievement was the foundation of the civil administration of the Royal Navy. He saw the Navy's role as one of defense, and converted it from an occasional force gathered for war into a permanent and efficient means of security for Britain. Richard Ollard has drawn together the differing threads running through Pepys's life and has given us a fascinating portrait of this many-sided seventeenth-century man. The times through which Pepys lived were among the most eventful in English hi ... Read more

THE GREAT REVOLT OF 1381

Oman, Sir Charles

London 1989, Greenhill, reprint of 1906 edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG Condition, x, 219 pages, illustrations,notes, index. ------------------------------------------Few of the most important episodes of English history were as short, sudden and dramatic as the great insurrection of 1381, the Peasants' Revolt led by Wat Tyler. Only a brief month separates the first small riot in Essex that started the rising on 30 May from the final skirmish in East Anglia on 28 June when the last surviving band of insurgents were scattered to the winds. Yet within the period that intervened half of England was aflame, and it often seemed that the country would be engulfe in total destruction. The Revolt was thought by contemporary monastic chroniclers to be the work of Satan. Sparked off as it may have been by the infamous and loathed Poll Tax, it had many deeper causes. In this seminal and perceptive work, Sir Charles Oman argues that the England of 138-1, ruled by the boy-king Richard II ... Read more

New York 1966, Heineman, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine / VG condition ( dj is price clipped & very small stain on bottom rear corner of dust jacket ), 6x9, iix, 286 pages, numerous illustrations, notes, appendices, bibliog, index. --------------------------------------------------------------------Recent accounts of the origins of the Second World War have tended to characterize the German Staff as villains and cast the German Army as the all too-willing tool for the Führer. Doctor O'Neill, dissatisfied with mere demonology, has delved deeply into official and unofficial records dealing with the crucial years following Hitler's accession to power. His researches, which include conversations with German generals who served in that fateful epoch, as well as military experts and historians of many nationalities, have produced the first wholly convincing explanation of how a High Command, schooled in the highly professional and non-political old Imperial Arm ...

US 1st edition. hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, FINE/VG CONDITION, ( very minor dj edge wear & light scratches to rear dj cover), viii, 184 pages, illus., notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------In the last full year of World War II, with the retreating Germans occupying Warsaw and the Red Army closing a ring around it, the half-starved, desperate Poles and their underground army rose up from cellars, factories, and offices armed with home-made bombs and stolen rifles. Their spirit of unity and resistance to foreign domination and encroachments on citizens' liberties exploded in the Warsaw Rising of 1944. Their story has no more dramatic and heroic parallel in all the annals of World War II resistance movements. ---------------------------------------Airlift to Warsaw raises the curtain on an episode of the Rising not previously told: the attempt of the Allied forces to arm and supply the Warsaw nationalists. ...

London 1994, Leo Cooper, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xii, 196 pages, illus, index. ..................................................... Few men have a better claim to be called a legend in his own lifetime than Guy Gibson. Leader of the famous Dambuster Raid of May, 1943 which became part of the popular folklore of the Second World War after the film in which Richard Todd took the part of the hero, he himself was tragically killed in an air crash in 1944. ................................................................... Born in India in 1918 and brought up in England in comfortable if somewhat disjointed circumstances, Guy Gibson joined the Royal Air Force in November, 1936. Thereafter his career can be seen as a battle between, on the one hand, his uncertain temperament and less than ideal private life, and, on the other, his undoubted skills as an airman and as a leader of men. The war was to bring him adventure and, later, fame. He ... Read more

By mid-March, more than 90,000 French troops had been killed or wounded. The fighting continued for seven long months, with casualties on both sides mounting in astonishing numbers. By the end of the year, the battle had claimed more than 700,000 victims. The butchery had little impact on the course of the war, and Verdun soon became the most potent symbol of the horrors of the war in general, and of trench warfare in particular. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Ian ...

Oxford University Press, 1994. Hardcover w/ dj, first edition, 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, Fine/Fine condition, . xiv, 390 pages, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------When Hitler came to power in 1933 he had two aims for the economy: a rapid recovery from the depths of the Great Slump and the creation of a vast economic foundation for Germany's renewed bid for world power. These eleven essays explore the tension between Hitler's vision of an armed economy and the reality of German economic and social life. Richard Overy argues that the German economy was much less crisis-ridden in 1939 than its enemies supposed, and that Hitler, far from limiting his war effort, tried to mobilize the economy for "total war" from 1939 onwards. Only the poor organization of the Nazi state and the interference of the military prevented higher levels of military output. Many of these essays challenge accepted views of the Third Reich. In his introduction Richard Overy reflects on the issues the ess ... Read more
