THE SANDS OF VALOUR

Wagner, Geoffrey

ECHOES OF WAR series. London 1986, Buchan & Enright, paper covers, reprint of 1967 edition, 5 1/4 x 8 1/4, FINE CONDITION,, 404 pages. ---------------------------- The toll exacted upon the British troops who fought in North Africa from , 1940-42 was a heavy one. This novel follows the fortunes of the 3rd Droghedas, an armoured regiment that has been in action in the desert from the beginning. As Rommel's Afrika Korps builds up, it is met again and again by such units until, under the strain of constant action, tiredness becomes weariness, weariness turns to exhaustion, every man living on his nerves and on his determination not to give up. And for too long there were no other men, no other armour, to take their place. This is a powerful and moving study of men called upon, by necessity, to do more than their simple duty, and a remarkable evocation of the mental processes that can lead men on even to suicidal heroism. In its portrayal of the fate of the hard-pressed professionals of an armo ... Read more

Fallbrook, 1982, Aero, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 1/2 x 10, VG/VG- condition ( dj shows light edge wear ), 222 pages, glossy page stock, prof. illustrated, index. ---------------------------------------------Gathering intelligence remains one of the airplane's most significant and fascinating functions. In World War I, the first military use of aircraft was in gathering information behind enemy lines on troop dispositions and in serving as forward artillery observation posts. More than six decades later the intelligence-gathering function of the airplane remained essentially the same but the technique had undergone dramatic sophistication. ' In the early 1960s technicians took the pilot out of the plane's cockpit, put him on the ground at an electronic black box and had him `fly' spy missions by remotely controlling a pilotless jet airplane. Because of this advanced technique, formerly dangerous intelligence-gathering flights in hostile areas we ... Read more

An overall account of the operations of Gen. George Patton's U.S. Third Army in France & Germany, 1944-45.

Gordon Wallace joined the Fleet Air Arm in 1940 and trained as an observer. In Carrier Observer he recalls this period and gives the reader a fascinating insight into the life of a navigator who has the responsibility of finding his way back to a carrier in the middle of an ocean in all weathers.

THE DIARY OF A NAPOLEONIC FOOT SOLDIER

Walter, Jakob, ed by Marc Raeff

New York, 1991, Doubleday, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6 x 9, xxx, 170 pages, 1 map, illus, chronology. . ----------------------------------------- A grunt's-eye report from the battlefield in the spirit of The Red Badge of Courage and All Quiet on the Western Front -the only known account by a common soldier of the campaigns of Napoleon's Grand Army between 1806 and 1813. When eighteen-year-old German stonemason Jakob Walter was conscripted into the Grand Army of Napoleon, he had no idea of the trials that lay ahead. The long, grueling marches in Prussia and Poland sacrificed countless men to Bonaparte's grand designs. And the disastrous Russian campaign tested human endurance on an epic scale. Demoralized by defeat in a war few supported or understood, deprived of ammunition and leadership, driven past reason by starvation and bitter cold, men often turned on one another, killing fellow soldiers for bread or an able horse. ...

VG/VG- light wear to dj extremities & several small chips on dj, ), 6x9, xi., 658 pages, appendices, notes, index. ....................................................... This is the story of World War II, as seen from Germany's Supreme Headquarters by General Walter Warlimont, who was at the center of power during one of history's most shattering periods. It is the story of men whom the fates tempted and then destroyed. It is doubtful that ever before in a great war had the supreme headquarters of a major participant been such a microcosm of that country's leadership and society. The German Armed Forces Supreme Headquarters during World War II was a stage of truly Wagnerian dimensions, with Hitler the all-powerful, totally evil, almost godlike arbiter of life and death over untold millions of combatants and noncombatants.

Newton Abbott, 1973, Victorian Book Club, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 232 pages, illus, maps, bibliog, index. Dood/Good condtion, some light dj wear and some corner bumping. .............................It would seem from the general historical perspective that the Crimean War was the most mismanaged, brutal and futile campaign that has ever been fought. For well over a hundred years it has been presented as the classic model of military and medical blundering. Military inefficiency is felt to have been slightly redeemed by the glamour surrounding the ill-fated heroism of the Charge of the Light Brigade, and medical chaos made acceptable by the subsequent achievements of the diligent Florence Nightingale. The facts that the Allies won this war against extremely tough opponents, that at the end of it the British Army had reached a high pitch of efficiency, and that the campaign was one of extreme difficulty, are all too frequently glossed over or completely ignored. In this reapprais ... Read more
