Annapolis, MD, Naval Institute Press 1989, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 10 x 10, FINE/FINE CONDITION, ( small closed tear on dj ), 190 pages, many illus. & maps, appendices, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------During the two World Wars, German submarines sank 8,209 merchant vessels grossing more than 27 million tons. So effective a menace did the U-boats become that in both wars — in 1917 and again in 1941-2 - they came close to bringing Britain to her knees. ....................................................................This book, illustrated with more than 150 photographs, diagrams and charts, sets out to tell the twin stories of the Battles of the Atlantic, providing the reader with the opportunity to compare the course of the two campaigns. In the Second World War the Allies took time to learn the lessons of the first World War — most important of which was that escorted convoys provided the only real security for mercha ... Read more

Staplehurst, 2004,Spellmount, UK first edition, , hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/VG CONDITION, (dj shows scratches on rear cover ), 6x9, x, 341 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------ The second of two volumes, this is a chronological account of the campaigns on the Eastern Front, following the Soviet counter-offensive around Stalingrad to the final destruction of the Ostheer. Having carefully mustered their forces for a counter-offensive around Stalingrad, the commanders of the Red Army began the long process of besting the German Army and pushing it out of the Soviet Union. The last large-scale German offensive in the east, Kursk, broke the back of the revitalized Panzerwaffe and placed the Ostheer on the defensive for the remainder of the conflict. Unrelenting pressure pushed the Ostheer back to the Dniepr and beyond and paved the way for the overwhelming Soviet victories of 1944 and 1945. In the last 18 months of the war the Red Army demon ...

Oxford, Oxford Illustrated Press, 1978., UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, first UK edition, VG/VG condition ( front hinge light crack ) xix, 603 pages, illus, appendices, index. --------------------------------------------------------------------This very readable book tells the colourful story of the Chaplains of the Royal Navy from the Crusades to the "Cod War" of 1976. It is a frank account of the Chaplains' deeds and experiences, chiefly at sea, during their long involvement in the wide sweep of naval history. It is set against that background in such a way that the expert can acquire a wealth of fascinating detail and the novice can be inspired to inquire further into the absorbing chronicle of the Royal Navy. -------------------------------------------------Nothing on this scale has ever before been published on the subject in this country, and therefore THE SEA CHAPLAINS fills a surprising gap in naval history. In the copious Appendices are listed ... Read more

London, 1970 , Ian Allan. third & later UK impression, , hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, glossy page stock, over 300 photos. VG/VG condition ( light dj wear & price clipped ). -------------------------------------------------There have been many histories of the Royal Air Force, but never one like this. The evolution and achievements of Britain's air forces are put into new perspective against a background of the changing world of our twentieth century. Not only do we learn why—as well as how—the RAF and its predecessors gained victory in the great air battles of two World Wars and countless smaller wars; we see how they blazed a trail across oceans and deserts for the airlines to follow, played a major part in creating America's great modern aviation industry, kept the peace for two desperately dangerous decades after World War II and, simultaneously, learned how to use new kinds of aircraft to bring new life to hundreds of men, women and children who would otherwi ...

New York, 1969, Arco, US first edition, 6 x 9, VG/VG condition ( dj is price clipped & light dj edge wear ), 240 pages, prof. illustrated. ----------------------------------------------------------THIS SECOND VOLUME of the Pictorial History of the RAF tells of the tremendous contribution that the Royal Air Force made to victory in World War II. Officially-released information, including the results of research not available to earlier historians, has enabled John W. R. Taylor and Philip J. R. Moyes to compare with unprecedented clarity the qualities of the aircraft used by both sides in World War II. We are shown how Bomber Command's offensive, largely ineffective up to the Autumn of 1941, was so changed by the introduction of secret new equipment, formidable new aircraft and bold new tactics that it was able to pave the way for victory in the West. Other chapters take the reader to North and East Africa, the Far East, over the Atlantic—wherever the Royal Air Force and its ... Read more

New York, 1970, Arco, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , 6x9, glossy page stock, . VG/VG condition , 208 pages, over 300 illustrations ............................................................................IN THIS VOLUME, John Taylor and Philip Moyes bring the history of the Royal Air Force right up to date. At the end of World War Two, the RAF had been an immensely powerful service but, as in 1919, as soon as the fighting was over it was allowed to run down. Would the victorious Allies remain "united nations" i Those who so believed were quickly disillusioned. The cold war between east and west intensified until the Russian blockade of Berlin in 11948 brought Europe to the brink of World War Three. Air power saved the day, this time with transport aircraft instead of bombers. Despite such a clear warning, the British government still refused to order new sweptwing fighters for the RAF, although America was already mass-producing the F-86 Sabre and Russia the MiG-1 ...

Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1963. US first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition ( light dj edge wear), x, 370 pages, end paper maps, illus., index. ----------------------------------This is a rich personal chronicle of flying during the years 1916 to 1951, written by Australia's brilliant pioneer aviator, Sir Gordon Taylor. The author's first aircraft was a little Sopwith Scout fighter which he flew on the British front in France in 1917. Twenty-five years later, in 1942, he flew Liberator bombers and other aircraft across the Atlantic for the R.A.F. — one of the few pilots to fly actively in both World Wars. But the heart of this aviator is in pioneering aviation. In The Sky Beyond he tells of his perilous exploratory flights — many of them in the great Catalina flying boats — across the Tasman Sea and the Indian and Pacific Oceans during the 1930's and 1940's. As recently as 1951 he commanded Frigate Bird II on its historic flight from Australia to So ... Read more

New York 1994, Hippocrene, US First hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 468 pages, illus, maps, order of battle, glossary, index. "The Air Force and armor were the thunder of Desert Storm," said Gen. Schwarzkopf, "while the 101st was the lightning." This is the story of the Screaming Eagles-the hell-bent, heliborne soldiers of the 101st who hurled the lightning bolts. The first one struck to begin the air war, a daring night raid which punched a hole in Iraq's radar fence for allied bombers to light up the sky over Baghdad on January 17, 1991. This white knuckle raid was recorded from beginning to end through the pilots' infrared cameras. Actual dialogue from the tapes provides a chapter of fascinating authenticity. The five month run up to the hundred-hour ground war is fascinating in and of itself. The 101st pitched thousands of Arab tents for a base ("Fort Camel") from where they would cover a front as large as the combined are ... Read more

Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, 1996. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xvi, 286 pages, illus., maps, notes, glossary, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------- Combining newly released top-secret Admiralty reports, rare photographic materials, and extensive interviews with eyewitnesses from three nations, James Tent has produced a comprehensive study of a little-known episode of World War II—the campaign to defend the Normandy invasion fleet from Germany's high-performance motor torpedo boats or Schnellboote, known to the Allies as "E-boats:' This true story offers a tale of mounting suspense as the German navy, emboldened by the E-boats' successful torpedoing of three American tank landing ships off Slapton Sands in April 1944, fed reinforcements into the invasion area in hopes of disrupting the Allied buildup. ----------------------------------------------- Simultaneously, the Allies searched for innovative ways to ...

Lippincott, 1965, Philadelphia, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x8, VG/- VG- condition, ( light foxing on inside of both paste downs), dj is price clipped, 231 pages, illus, maps, index. In The Western Front, John Terraine, whose massive and accomplished biography of Sir Douglas Haig was published in 1963, reflects with insight and compassion on the fighting of the Western Front in the First World War. Apart from his critical sketches of statesmen and soldiers of the time- Haig and Field Marshal Lord Plumer among them-the author touches on matters about which there is still argument and speculation: Was there, for instance, something deeper and far more widely spread than the imperfect thinking of one general or another, or one politician and his rival, which made the First World War such a deadlock? Why did Haig go on at Passchendaele when he had been advised by his generals what a hopeless business it was? Were the casualties on the Western Front so shocking, aft ... Read more

1989, London, Leo Cooper, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4, xx, 84l pp, 51 illus, 19 maps, many appendices, extensive notes, bibliog & index. -----------------------------------------------------------"Business in Great Waters" is the first book to describe in detail and to analyse in depth the entire history of submarine warfare in both World Wars. Following the practise which has earned him an unrivalled position among today's military historians, John Terraine concentrates first and foremost upon the combatants themselves; in the current vernacular, he sees the action "from where it was at" on sea and in the air, and his wide research over many years into the other three main factors in the equation, the political, the military and the technological, enable him to set the scene in its overall context and show how potentially lethal the U-boat threat was to Great Britain in both wars. ---------------------------- ...
