SOLDIER BOY

Ucman, Frank A

Quixote, Berea, Ohio, 1995. first US paper edition, 6x9, VG- condition( light cover wear and some sun fading of spine ), 237 pages, map, illus. AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - signed by the author on the title page. ................................... Based upon the journal that was his constant companion during his World War II tour of duty, Frank Ucman's story radiates the candor of a fresh-faced, Army recruit from small-town America.

First American edition. hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG- CONDITION, ( small chip in dj spine ), 591 pages, illustrated, maps. .................................................................

As a result, a rich and colourful heritage of mariners and an incomparable maritime history of voyages, discoveries, special skills, triumphs and disasters, in both the royal and merchant navies, have been produced – all of which have been a constant source of inspiration, especially to writers and artists. They have even enriched the English language, with words and phrases often used now without any suspicion of their nautical origin. Grant Uden and Richard Cooper have compiled this dictionary to provide a companionable guide to the seamen, ships, battles and trading enterprises that feature in this remarkable pa ... Read more

2007. Spellmount, UK paper reprint, VG-condition, ( mild upper right corner bump) 6x9, xxxii, 286 pages, numerous maps, illus, notes, bibliog, index. ---------------------------------------------------------The aim of this ground-breaking new book is to reassess twelve outstanding generals of Napoleon's wars in the light of recent research.

Annapolis 1994, USNI press, 1st US edition, hard bound w/dj, 6x9, VG/VG condition, xv, 455, maps, bibliog, index. ------------------------------A huge mosaic, comprehensive in scope yet concise in description, this book uses as its instrument of discovery the wartime experiences of the U.S. Navy and its allies from the days of wooden ships to the present. In clear, vivid language the author portrays the origin and goals of each American conflict, and how the country has sent its navy to help achieve those goals.

How Navies Fight is a search for and identification of those methods of sea warfare that can be counted on to show up most often. It is also a report to the owners about what they should expect their fleets to do for them when they send ships out to fight. The book is intended not only for officers of the navy, but also for those of the other services who may be u ... Read more

New York 2001 , Harper Collins, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, , xix, 348 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------- History books report-and rightly so-that it was the strategic and intelligence gathering brilliance of the Duke of Wellington (who began his military career as Arthur Wellesley) that culminated in Britain's defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo in 1815. Nearly two hundred years later, many of General Wellesley's subordinates are still remembered for their crucial roles in these historic campaigns. But Lt. Col. George Scovell is not among them. The Man Who Broke Napoleon's Codes is the story of a man of common birth-bound, according to the severe social strictures of eighteenth-century England, for the life of a tradesman-who would in time become his era's most brilliant code-breaker and an officer in Wellesley's army. In an age when officers were drawn almost exclusively f ... Read more

Fairleigh Dickinson (An Associated University Press Publisher), 1982. Book Club edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, 6x9, 308 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ..............................................................Custer found himself in the one dilemma all soldiers most dread—he was outnumbered and completely surrounded. With disaster looming in every quarter and no chance of escape. . . ." So Gregory J. W Urwin pulls the reader into a scene describing not the Battle of the Little Big Horn but a Civil War engagement that George Armstrong Custer and his troop survived, thanks to strategy as much as naked courage. Many books have focused on Custer's Last Stand in 1876, making legend of total defeat. Custer Victorious is the first to examine at length, with attention to primary sources, his brilliant Civil War career. Urwin writes: "None of Custer's exploits against the Plains Indians could compare with those he performed while ... Read more

New York 1958.Putnam, EIGHTH PRINTING , Hard Bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1./2, VG/VG- condition,( dj dj shows edge wear and chipping),. 384 pages. .......................................................................Colonel Gregory Boyington, U.S.M.C. (retired), has written one of the great books of World War II. It might be described as the story of a wild, hard drinking, professional Marine flyer who was one of the most unconventional heroes of the war. Winners of the nation's highest honor are inspired to rise above themselves and set an example for all who respect them. "Pappy" Boyington had no desire to change his ways because he happened to be lucky and fearless, and a competent leader of men as wild and independent as he was. He had never let anyone kick him around, and he saw no reason why he should let the Japanese do so in the air or after he was taken prisoner. ...........................................Winner of a Congressional Medal of Honor and a Na ...

University of Oklahoma Press., Norman., 1988, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, xvii, 226 pages, illus, maps, bibliog., index.---- ---------------------------------------George Armstrong Custer. The name evokes instant recognition in almost every American and in people around the world. No figure in the history of the American West has more powerfully moved the human imagination. The Custer wielding this enormous influence, however, is the legendary Custer, not the real Custer, the immortal rather than the mortal. Cavalier in Buckskin probes the mortal and the immortal while also characterizing and interpreting the institutional context of both—the frontier army of the American West. Custer was the best known (though not the best) of the nation's military Indian fighters. Through the man we have clear access to the western military frontier and the nature of warfare with the Indians of the Great Plains. --------------------------------------------------------Custer ...

New York, Macmillan 1966. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, VG/VG- ( dj light edge wear and price clipped ), 319 pages, several illus, index. ........................................... Never before published, this is an account, by someone who was actually present, of Napoleon's fateful Russian campaign. The young Boris von Uxkull was an Estonian nobleman attached to the Russian headquarters staff. He was a valiant soldier and a patriot, but he had an independent mind, and he was able to perceive the darker sides and the paradoxes of war. Altogether, he took part in seventeen battles, first with the rank of Cornet, and later rising to Lieutenant. He was a member of the Allied Armies that entered Paris in 1814, and he took a full part in the life of gallantry that succeeded the harder life of a wartime officer. But Uxkull had never been obsessed by his military duties to the exclusion of all else, even during the hardest campaigns, and some of his amorous adventures en ... Read more
