At two minutes after midnight July 29/30, 1945, in the South Pacific, the heavy cruiser Indianapolis, Flagship of the Fifth Fleet, was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. In exactly twelve minutes, a mass of choking smoke and blazing fury, she sank. But slithering and sliding over the oil-streaked decks, over 800 men went overboard-only to face one of the worst ordeals in Navy history. By a fantastic turn of fate and error, the Navy did not know the Indianapolis had gone down. There was no escort vessel to give the alarm, and on Guam and Leyte, no one had marked her absence. No lifeboats were launched and only a few life rafts. Three and a half days later, the Indianapolis had still not been missed. On the fourth day, after the sea, sun, and sharks had taken a frightful toll, a lone patrol plane out of Peleliu accidentally sight ed the vic ... Read more

French's Forest, 1988, Childs, First Australian edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, ( author wrote several of the volumes of the RAAF official History of WW 2 ). 200 pages. Set on the fictional Pacific island of Balanai in the final stages of World War 11, this novel tells the story of a group of six men-fighter aces -driven to desperate measures by the unreasonable orders of their commanding officer. As the Japanese forces were defeated in major engagements to the north of Balanai and with the 'island hopping' strategy of the US forces, tens of thousands of Japanese soldiers were left behind on the bypassed islands to 'wither on the vine'. The RAAF forces on Balanai were no longer in the front line of the action and their contribution could not affect the end result of the war. However, the commanding officer, former World War I hero, Air Commodore Arnold Tremayne Blandy, desperate to get his men forward with the Americans and be part of the last adva ... Read more

The Hundred Years' War. The Napoleonic Wars. The Sino-Japanese War. World Wars I and II. Korea, and Vietnam. For centuries, men have waged war among themselves, filling history with accounts of armies and battles, victories and defeats. From General William T. Sherman, we know that "war is hell;' but just what does war feel like to the men who fight it? How does it change them?

In this brilliantly documented volume, military historian Richard Holmes examines these questions and others to present a detailed portrait of the men on the firing line. Drawing both on written accounts of war over the past two centuries ... Read more

Annapolis 1987, Naval Institute, US First hard bound edition in dust jacket, 7x10, Fine/Fine condition, xviii, 1268 pages, numerous illustrations, notes, bibliog & index. ---------------------------------This biography of Admiral William Shepherd Benson-the result of more than fifteen years of extensive research-makes a significant contribution to the annals of U.S. naval history. Until now, surprisingly little has been written about the man who became the first chief of naval operations in 1915 and led the U.S. Navy through World War I. Unlike many other important naval figures of his day, Admiral Benson did not write his memoirs, so his own account of events has never been made public. To write this book, however, Dr. Mary Klachko was given exclusive access to the admiral's private papers and made use of numerous other primary sources. In addition, she interviewed Benson's family, friends, and professional colleagues, as well as American and British naval o ... Read more

The entire ship's company of the Camperdown was tried by court martial. To this day the: cause of the collision is not explained.

Annapolis 1990, USNI, First US edition w/dj, 6x9, xxiii, 427 pages, illustrations, notes, bibliog, index. The third in a series, this collection of interpretive, biographical essays on the admirals of the new steel navy continues the story of the development of the American naval tradition begun so successfully in Command Under Sail and Captains of the Old Steam Navy. In this new volume the focus is on the years between 1880 and 1930, a period marked by exceptional change in the United States. The U.S. Navy, in particular, underwent a significant transformation as it adapted to new technologies and grew to meet the responsibilities thrust upon it by America's new role as a world power. The essays trace the emergence of the modern U.S. Navy by examining the lives of thirteen naval officers. A varied lot, the names of some, for example, Alfred Thayer Mahan and William T. Sampson, are quite familiar. Others, such as French Ensor Chadwick and Henry T. Mayo, are less well known than they deserve to ... Read more
