New York 1991, Sarpedon, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, x, 304 pages, illustrations, appendices. Without the willing assistance of many non-Germans, the Nazis could not have succeeded in annihilating millions of Jews during World War II. In the western Ukraine, Nazi political goals coincided with that of local nationalist organizations to produce an alliance that resulted in the slaughter of scores of thousands of innocent civilians. Through survivors' eyes, Alliance for Murder: The Nazi-Ukrainian Nationalist Partnership in Genocide documents the horrors of fascist "Actions" in the Ukraine, leading the reader through successive atrocities until individual Jews, hiding in forests or sheltered by sympathetic local families, are the only remnants of once vital, populous communities. In addition to the chilling personal memoirs of the Holocaust, many contributors to this book also offer objective analyses ... Read more

University of Delaware Press, Newark, DE, 1979. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped & small spot of color missing from dj cover), 215 pages, maps, notes, bibliog., index. ---------------------------------------------------------------The decision to invade North Africa, rather than to strike directly across the Channel in 1942, was the crucial strategic decision of the first year of the war-time Anglo-American alliance. It determined the course of Allied strategy against Germany for the ensuing two years, and effectively ensured that the British and US military effort in Europe was concentrated in the Mediterranean during that period. In consequence, the opening of the 'Second Front' in North-West Europe, so much desired by the sorely pressed Soviet Union, was postponed until 1944. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Keith Sainsbury has examin ...

Lanham, MD , Madison Books 1995., US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 197 pages, illustrations, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------During World War II, while thousands of Japanese-Americans were being sent to U.S. detainment camps, a Japanese-American from Hawaii working as a U.S. Army spy in the Philippines was captured by the enemy. Richard Sakakida was the only Japanese-American prisoner of the Japanese forces, and he faced death as a "traitor" because of his Japanese face. Despite unspeakable torture, Sakakida stubbornly refused to confess that he was an American spy; ironically, his Japanese cultural heritage is what enabled him to survive the beatings inflicted on him by his Japanese captors. Sakakida narrowly escaped a death sentence and was assigned to the office of a Japanese official, where he gained valuable military information for MacArthur and engineered a daring prison break that freed a Filipino guerrilla leader an ...

U.S. Army Command & General Staff College, , Fort Leavenworth, KS, 1994. ,US first edition, paper covers, 6x9, FINE CONDITION, xiii, 88 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------------------------This study examines the role of the U.S. Army as an instrument of national power in the execution of U.S. government policy. The focus of the thesis is an investigation of the implementation of policy, in terms of the Ute Indian tribe of Colorado, and the events preceding and following the Ute uprising of 1879. The Army found itself in a dilemma with regard to its support of a national Indian strategy. It was not the primary executive agent for the implementation of policy but was called upon to both enforce national policy and police violators. This study traces the development of the U.S. Indian Policy and the evolution of army strategy in the west. The study culminates with an analysis of the events surrounding the outbreak of hostilities in 1879. ... Read more

Had she kept her meddling to relatively peaceful political pursuits, the world would not have been in such danger over these seventy years. She wanted world conquest for Communism at any cost, however, and so embarked on military intervention when political subversion was not enough. --------------------------------------------------------This book, researched from previously secret archives, details the Soviets' military follies, from revolutionary times when Ukraine was added to the new USSR to the final disaster of Afghanistan.

Ramrod Publications, Malvern Wells, 1992. UK first edition, Hard Cover with dust jacket, 6 x 9, ix, 200 pages, FINE/FINE CONDITION, illus, appendices, bibliog. ------------------------------------------------On Sunday, 11th May, 1941, Pilot Officer Franek Surma's Spitfire, R6644, of 308 (Polish) Fighter Squadron suffered an engine fire over Malvern, Worcestershire. Only after he had steered his doomed machine away from the built-up area below, however, did the young pilot abandon "ZF-H" to its fate and make a safe parachute descent. The following month saw 308 heavily committed on a daily basis to offensive operations over enemy occupied France; the action was hectic and casualties were high. Franek Surma, an "ace" and one of the Few, would not survive. On November 8th, 1941, he failed to return from Circus 110, a daylight bomber escort sortie, and remains officially "missing" to this day. No idea could he have had then, however, that fifty years on another young ... Read more

ZERO OVER BERLIN

Sasaki, Joh

New York, 2004, Vertical Publs, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION ( dj is price clipped), 346 pages. ------------------------------------------------------A major Japanese talent in detective and thriller fiction appears in English with this excellent, compact WWII tale. Hitler decides to build a Japanese Zero fighter, and Japanese navy officials, with mixed feelings about the alliance with Germany, have to find some way of getting two Zeros from Japan to Germany. This involves picking two maverick pilots, Lt. Keichi Ando and NCO Kyohei Inui, and arranging for airfields in British territory (India) and British-patrolled territory (Iran and Iraq). Both pilots are well-drawn characters, Ando especially, and competent sketches of people like Gaj Singh, an anti-British maharajah; Ando's sister Michiko; and American pilot of fortune Jim Purvis lend depth to the book. So do the flying scenes (including a raid on British Victoria bombers in Iraq, into which the Jap ... Read more

Franklin Watts, New York, NY, 1987, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG CONDITION ( very light dj edge wear ), v, 376 pages, illus, maps, index. ------------------------------------------In 1918, at the end of the First World War, Germany lay defeated, ruined, and torn by internal revolt. In time, however, there arose a new Germany, a nation whose remarkable economic recovery and refusal to accept the shameful terms of the Versailles Treaty paved the way for Hitler and, under his direction, the rebirth of forbidden armed forces, and the building of new and powerful weapons. The rest of the world ignored the warning signs until almost too late, and was to pay a heavy price when war came in 1939. Raised and trained in secret, the Luftwaffe played a decisive part in the coming of that war. ------------------------------------Concealed within the static strategy of the Great War had lain the seeds of a new and powerful weapon - ...
