CHARLES VII

Vale, Malcolm Graham Allan

  • Quantity available: 1
University of California Press, Berkeley, CA, 1974, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition ( miniscule bump to lower corner & dj price clipped ), xiii, 267 pages, illus., map, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------------------------Charles VII of France (1422-61) is perhaps best remembered as Joan of Arc's dauphin and as such is often dwarfed by her into insignificance. This new study, the first life to appear in English and the first to appear anywhere since 1891, proves how misleading the popular picture has been. By his death the unknown 'king of Bourges' had become the 'very victorious king'. The English had been expelled from France, the Valois monarchy's survival was assured, and the reign of Louis XI could begin in far more favourable circumstances than those that faced Charles VII. --------------------------------------------------------------------- In this highly intelligible and scholarly appraisal ...

Athens, 1981, Univ of Georgia, US first U edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, v, 206, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------"Even if it were no more than a fiction, these fancies of war as a noble game of honour and virtue have still played an important part in developing civilization, for it is from them that the idea of chivalry sprang and hence, ultimately, of international law," wrote the noted medieval historian Johan Huizinga. This book examines some of the ways in which these conceptions were expressed, whether in theory or practice, in the thick of battle or in the political behavior of the nobility. It is not a study of the military as an institution. Its concern is with the relationship between ideas and behavior among an elite for whom war was not only a profession but a justification for their social position and privileges. The author has consulted such sources as eye-witness accounts of batt ... Read more

Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1994., US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/VG CONDITION,( dj spine lightly sunned) x, 374 pages, illustrations, bibliog., index. --------------------------- An acclaimed military historian now tells the story of a weapon that played crucial parts in both world wars and in the cold war: the submarine. This fresh and wide-ranging chronicle arrives as strategists rethink the role of these vessels in the new world order. In less than a century the submarine has matched or overtaken in military significance the battleship, the aircraft carrier, the strategic bomber, even the land-based missile in its silo. Dan van der Vat tells how the submersible man-of-war progressed from being a gleam in the eye of Fenian Irishmen intent on damaging the British Navy to becoming the most intricate technological system devised by man. Most important and fascinating of all are his accounts of the development of submarine strategy during the epochal naval cam ... Read more

Bethesda, 1986, Adler, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG- ( dust lightly worn at edges & repaired tear), 6x9, 252 pages, end paper maps, illus, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------In August 1914, the Germans formally handed over to the Turks the battle cruiser "Goeben" ("Sultan Yavus Selim") and the light cruiser "Breslau" ("Midilli"), but they were still on the books of the German Imperial Navy under the command of Rear Admiral Wilhelm Souchon when the war began. Eluding both the British and French navies, Souchon sailed through the Straits of Dardanelles into the Black Sea. Passing his ships off as Turkish he bombarded Sevastopol on 29 October 1914 resulting in pushing Turkey into the war on the German side. As the First World War began, the Germans had just one capital ship, the battle-cruiser "Goeben", stationed in the Mediterranean. Under the command of a ruthless admiral, the " ... Read more

ROBERT HALE, LONDON, 1979, UK FIRST EDITION,, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION ( dj price clipped) , 6 x 9, 194 pages, illus., index. ------------------------------------------One of the most closely guarded secrets of World War II was the success of American code-breakers in reading the messages of the Japanese armed forces and diplomatic service. Probably no single achievement played a greater part in the U.S. victory in the Pacific following the appalling setback at Pearl Harbor. ---------------------------------------------------------------------From the Battle of Midway to the final surrender of Japan, Communications Intelligence (Comint) provided the American High Command with virtually continuous knowledge of Japanese plans and operations. On the one hand, the information enabled the U.S. Navy to avoid being taken by surprise in engagements that might have proved disastrous; and on the other it made it possible to inflict heavy losses on the enemy, sometimes agains ...

Texas A & M University Press, College Station, TX, 1997. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2. FINE/FINE CONDITION,, xv, 396 pages, illus, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------The sheer magnitude of Johnson's colossal failure to either win or foreshorten the war in Vietnam has baffled and intrigued historians for three decades. Why did such a consummate politician and seasoned power broker continually falter while endeavoring to formulate a viable foreign policy in regard to Southeast Asia? Why did the leader of the world's foremost superpower stumble as he attempted to implement an effective military campaign in an underdeveloped country? Vandiver answers these questions by providing an intimate examination of LBJ's thoughts, feelings, and, most important, his motivations as he struggled in vain to understand and to solve the riddle that was Vietnam. Arguing that motives determine how people view and act upon facts, the author offers the reader ... Read more

THE BATTLE OF BLENHEIM

Verney, Peter

New York, 1976, Hippocrene, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, 192 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index ....................................................................At Blenheim, England became a military power to be reckoned with. For so long under the shadow of an immensely powerful and ambitious France she moved into an era of freedom and confidence which had not been enjoyed for a hundred years. Major Peter Verney fills in the broad sweep of political and economic conflict known as the War of the Spanish Succession and, having set the scene, covers the whole campaign leading up to the famous battle itself. It is a story of often incredible military skills; Marlborough equipped with no more than a patchwork army urged, helped and inspired them to some of the most glorious feats of arms in the annals of warfare. The march to the Danube covered nearly four hundred miles in, for those unmechanized times, an extraordinarily fast time. What awaited the exhausted army was ... Read more

Motorbooks Intl, Osceola, WI, 1995 US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 9 x 11, glossy page stock, 128 pages, all full color photos. -----------------Wind in the Wires is a joumey in photographs from the pioneering years of aviation beginning in 1909 when Blêriot flew the Channel, through the hectic development of fighting aircraft for World War I, taking the story up to the outbreak of World War II. The aircraft covered come from the period which saw speeds go from a stuttering 40mph to 400 mph and must be regarded as a time which saw one of the greatest technology leaps in modem history. The majority of pictures were taken over a recent summer and autumn season at the three major historic aircraft collections. These are Old Rhinebeck, New York, USA, the Salis Collection in France and the Shuttleworth Collection in the UK. All of these museums regularly fly their aircraft and this is the first book which brings their exhibits together. Wind in the Wires is a fitting& ... Read more

SOLDIERS OF THE OLD ARMY

Vogel, Victor

Texas A&M Univ. Press, College Station, TX, 1990, US first edition, hard bound in dj, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, xi, 124 pages, illus., appendices, index. --------------------------------------Between the two world wars, the United States Army was "a school, an athletic club, an orphans' home, and a boys' camp.” That description of Victor Vogel's "old army," in which he enlisted as a private in 1934, gives a small hint at how old-fashioned the army was in an age of isolationism and meager congressional appropriations. -------------In the pre–World War II army, cavalry troops were still mounted, horses pulled artillery carriages, and mules pulled supply wagons. The soldiers' basic weapon was the Springfield rifle, which was virtually an enemy itself as the men learned to fight its vicious recoil. The starting pay for a private was twenty-one dollars, and between 1922 and 1942 that sum did not increase, nor did base pay for men of any rank, and promotions we ... Read more
