Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1989, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xvii, 340 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. ..................................................... Radley investigates a little-known but important aspect of Confederate history: the role of the provost or military police during the four years of the Civil War. The "plug uglies" were a hated feature of wartime life in the South: their varied duties included the suppression of disloyalty and subversion, which gave them a degree of control over civilians unique in American history. The provost's main task, however, was to prevent straggling and desertion in the Southern armies, a mainly unsuccessful effort that Radley contends was a major factor in the Confederate defeat. Supporting his argument well, he presents startling facts. One learns that some 15,000 stragglers were absent from Lee's thin battle line at Antietam, and that by the autumn ... Read more

London 2002 Grub Street, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 183 pages, illus, appendice, index. -----------------------------------------------------------------JACK RAE gained his wings in New Zealand in 1940 and was posted to Britain as a Sergeant Pilot. He converted to Spitfires in early 1941, becoming an 'ace' and completing more than 50 operational sorties with 485 (NZ) Squadron. He was subsequently posted to Malta as part of a group of fighter pilots reinforcing the island's defenders. In Malta Rae served with the famous 'Screwball' Beurling, Buck McNair, Ray Hesslyn, 'Laddie' Lucas and 'Jumbo' Gracie among others. At the height of the Luftwaffe's all-out onslaught designed to neutralise the island in preparation for invasion, more than 90% of the Squadron's aircraft were lost to the Luftwaffe. Rae was shot down and wounded, although he recovered to fly once more. Having completed his t ... Read more

Lawrence, 1980, Regents Press of Kansas, first US edition, hard bound in dust jcket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, xi, 183 pages, a few illus & maps, notes, bibliog, index. This book has three subjects. The first may be called, after a well-known work by Herbert Butterfield, Bonaparte's peace tactics. The second is a product of the first: it is a case study of the influence of political illusions on the interaction of Russia and the West. For centuries, these two uncomfortably juxtaposed cultures have tried to understand each other, both for good and for evil, and they are, in this age of detente, still hard at it. This study illustrates, by taking a close look at one episode in the process, what a Sisyphean labor it is. The third subject is the difficulty that the scholar in the field of Russian affairs shares with the diplomat: the work of the scholar, like that of the states-man, where Russia is concerned, proceeds under special conditions. It is subject to special confusion. Perhaps Western ... Read more

London/New York, 1987, Arms & Armour Pr, First edition, hard bound in dj, VG/VG condition, 7x10, glossy page stock, 63 pages, prof. illustrated. ----------------------------------------------------After the American Revolution, George Washington's victorious field force quickly disbanded, and the military establishment in the Colonies fell prey to political and philosophical differences in the new country. Even after the creation of the United States, some years later, the young nation's fighting force remained small and relatively insignificant, often struggling for its very existence. In fact, the United States Army, from its origins in the late eighteenth century until its emergence as a major power during the First World War, experienced a checkered history. The threat of conflict with Britain, Mexico, the South and Spain periodically swelled the ranks and brought funds as well as an interest in the martial sector, but, for the most part, the men in uniform operated on the fri ...

Chicago, 1990, Univ of Chicago press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, xiv, 198 pages, notes w/ bibliog, index. In a study that extends well beyond military history, David B. Ralston documents the ways in which five different countries—Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Egypt, China, and Japan—refashioned their armed forces along European lines during the three centuries after 1600. The appropriation of Western military institutions in countries outside of Europe was, Ralston argues, the major force driving these countries to adopt European administrative, economic, and cultural modes. Following the same format in his discussion of each country, Ralston makes this central theme in world history easily accessible to students while offering scholars a sophisticated understanding of the exact nature of the changes brought about by Europeanizing military reforms.

Ian Allan Ltd., London, 1982. UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, ( dj price clipped)144 pages, massively illustrated with 258 photos , index. --------------------------------------------- The first recorded Royal Review of the British Navy took place in 1415 when King Henry V reviewed his ships before sailing to France to do battle in the 100 Years War. Since that date there have been 43 Royal Naval Reviews —held mainly at Spithead — where the might of the Senior Service and some foreign visitors have assembled for review by the monarch. The reasons for holding reviews have varied considerably through the ages. Originally designed to mobilise the fleet for war, as in 1415, they were also instrumental in showing friends or potential enemies the might of the Royal Navy, as in 1869 when Kaiser Wilhelm II was present. But reviews also took on a happier significance in the 19th century when Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee was celebrated ... Read more

Lewis, US first edition, 2000, Fine/Fine condition, 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, hard bound w/dj, 336 pages, illus, many in color. ( SAS live action audio CD included) ----------------------------------------As the SAS's Regimental Sergeant-Major during the Gulf War, Peter Ratcliffe is exceptionally well placed to comment on events often widely promoted as `the full story' in other books by former SAS soldiers. His controversial autobiography corrects many of the distortions and exaggerations of earlier accounts, and proves that much of what has been written about the Regiment is fiction or fantasy. Eye of the Storm is neither. Spanning action in Northern Ireland, Oman, and South Georgia and the Falklands, the author's SAS career reached its peak during the Gulf War, in which he commanded an eight-vehicle mobile patrol behind Iraqi lines. The mission culminated in the destruction of a vital strategic target against enormous odds - perhaps the most spectacularly successful special-forces ... Read more

A SPY OF THE OLD SCHOOL

Rathbone, Julian

New York, 1983, Pantheon, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 272 pages. -----------------------------------------------------Richard Austen is one of England's leading archaeologists, a well-known pillar of the Establishment. He is also a communist spy—a man who during World War II passed on to the Russians vital information about British code breaking. Julian Rathbone's new book blends his talent for writing brilliant thrillers—his Euro-Killers and other books have won international praise—with the insights that have twice made his works runners-up for Britain's distinguished Booker Prize. Rathbone unravels the fascinating story of a man who thinks he has covered his trail, safely juggling his dual loyalties, and then suddenly finds himself facing exposure. As the gilded exterior is slowly chipped away, we see a man trapped both by his present pursuers and by the conflicting loyalties of his past. Rathbone has captur ... Read more

Between the wars, the techniques of flying from aircraft carriers and operating over the sea ware improved and perfect ... Read more
