B-24 LIBERATOR 1939-45

Bowman, Martin

Wellingborough, 1989, Patrick Stephens, 2nd ed, reprint of 1979 edition, hard bounhjd in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x ll, Fine/Fine cond, 136 pp, prof. illustrated. .......................................... A detailed operational history of the Consolidated B-24 Liberator 4-engine bomber in USAAF , USN and RAF service during WW 2 in all theaters of operation. During the Second World War, the Liberator bomber was produced in far greater quantities than any other American aircraft and served with 15 air forces in a variety of roles. ...............................................The Consolidated Aircraft B-24 is perhaps best remembered for its daylight raids with the United States 8th and 15th Air Forces and its mission to Ploesti in August 1943, but these were just a small part of the work of this amazing aircraft. It provided invaluable support to the US Navy in the Pacific, with its formidable low-level bombing of Japanese targets, and was involved with the RAF, flying thousands of mi ... Read more

Pappy" Boyington "Col. Gregory Boyington USMC"

  • Quantity available: 1
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 ...

Robson Books, London, 1995. first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 253 pages, notes, bibliog., index. .......................................... It has been estimated that during the First World War 75,000 French soldiers were killed or maimed by `friendly fire', the euphemism commonly used for being killed by one's own colleagues or allies, presumably in error. As recently as the Gulf War the heaviest British casualties suffered in a single engagement were caused when US forces fired at British armoured vehicles, killing nine of the men inside. A quarter of all American casualties in Iraq in 1991 were caused by other American soldiers. How can this happen? How widespread is it? To what extent is the problem covered up? In this startling and revelatory study, military historian Geoffrey Regan presents a chilling expose of war's most incomprehensible tragedies and attempts to answer these questions. ........................... ...

THE BADER WING

Turner, John Frayn

Shrewsbury, 1990, Airlife, 2nd UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 156 pages, illus, index. ...................................... Douglas Bader, the indomitable legless air ace, became a legend in his own lifetime, and is today remembered as one of the greatest combatants to emerge during World War II. But less is known about the Bader Wing and its crucial contribution to the Battle of Britain. For the first time, this book reveals the fascinating story of the charismatic Wing Commander and the five squadrons which he led: the Bader Wing, consisting of some sixty pilots in all. The book highlights the dramatic aerial actions of the Canadian aces in Bader's own 242 Squadron — Stan Turner, Willis McKnight and G E Ball. It describes in absorbing detail their many successes, and also the inevitable moments of disaster and death. ..............................................Moreover, the story is set against the broader canvas and controv ...

Maritime Books., Liskeard, 1986., first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 12, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 208 pages, massively illustrated in B&W and color. . ----------------------------------Since 1957, when a book was last published on the badges of HM Ships (frequently known as crests), there has been a constant demand for another book on the subject. At last it is here. The author has gone to great lengths to check the smallest detail and all the badges have been checked against the master records held in HM Naval Base Devonport. The colours are reproduced as accurately as the printing process will allow. Many 'unofficial' badges have existed over the years and are deliberately not included here. Whilst we realise that our readers would want a book of all the badges ever issued to HM Ships we regret that, with some 2,000 being held on record, such a proposition was totally impractical. The badges listed within this book are for those HM Ships in commission, or being built ... Read more

Ian Allan (Shepperton) 1992, UK first printing, 144 pages,hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10, glossy page stock, well illustrated, photos and maps, appendices. -------------------------------------------From the early years of World War 2 both Britain and Germany had sought to extend the war to the major industrial conurbations through the application of systematic and heavy bombing. For the first three years of the war, however, the results of this bombing were largely indiscriminate and it was not until March 1942 that the RAF's Bomber Command finally achieved its first concentrated and successful attack on a German city. The target was not one of the heavily defended industrial centres such as Hamburg, but the lightly defended historic Baltic town of Lubeck. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Such a successful attack could not go unpunished but limited German resources had to be used to the best effect ...

Kent State University Press, Kent, Ohio, (1988)., US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, xvi, 147 pages,FINE/FINE CONDITION, illus, maps, roster, notes, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------------------------The Spanish-American War of 1898 boiled up suddenly in April, within weeks of the sinking of the battleship Maine in Havana harbor, and by August everything was over. Spain had relinquished Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines, the remnants of her once grand empire. The United States had become an imperial power, and more acquisitions would follow—the Panama canal zone, protectorates in Central America and the Caribbean, the Danish West Indies. All because of the War of 1898. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------Here, in short compass, is a lively, highly personal, and compelling account of what the war was like to the soldiers. The colonel of the Eighth Ohio Volunteer Regiment, Curtis V. Hard, spent ... 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 ...

THE BARBARY CORSAIRS

Lane-Poole, Stanley. with additions by Lt. J.D. Kelley, USN

London, DARF, 1984 reprint of 1890 edition, new hard bound w/dj, 5 1/2 x 8, xviii, illus, maps, notes, index. -------------------------------------------The Barbary Corsairs ( 1504 to 1881 ), recounts how the expatriation of the Spanish Moors at the end of the fifteenth century led to their taking vengeance from their new settlements in North Africa and elevating the skills of piracy to a fine art. The Barbary Coast had long been a haunt of pirates for its narrow creeks and natural harbours offered shelter to their boats of shallow draught while denying access to larger vessels. Despite commercial treaties between African and European states, piracy was carried on throughout the Middle Ages, chiefly by privateers from Christian states whose rulers were powerless to stop them. ------------------------------------------------It was to this wild and notorious coast that Barbarossa and his brother came in 1504 from the island of Lesbos. There follows an account of their exploits and those of ... Read more

Dial Press, New York, 1967., US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, VG/Good condition ( dj shows medium edge wear & chipping, prev. owners small name tag on frt end paper ), xiv, 449 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog.., index. --------------------------------------------- Described here for the first time from sources only recently declassified by the British government, the British campaign in Mesopotamia during World War I proves to have been almost as costly and disastrous as the events at Gallipoli. When the war began, victory seemed assured. British forces easily secured the head of the Persian Gulf—a maneuver designed to protect British oil installations. Tasting victory, the British commander, the ambitious Major General Sir Charles Townshend, hero of the defense of Chitral, began to drive toward Baghdad. Townshend's march was, initially, an epic of guts and improvisation. But he outran his resources and after a furious and bloody battle with the Turks at ... Read more

London, 2001 r/p of 1974 ed ( Anatomy of a Battle), Grub street, VG/VG condition, hard bound w/dj, 6x9, x11, 206 pages, line drgs. ----------------------------------The real face of battle told in stunning detail . What really happens during battle is told by one of the men who saw combat during WWII. In Normandy, July 28, 1944, the Americans have broken through the German defenses. Six stalemated British divisions redeploy to join the American attack. The ensuing battle involves infantry, tanks and artillery working together. The battle plans, which had seemed clear-cut and achievable, during the battle seem a nightmarish botch to the frightened men who are fighting. Some men fail - as human beings, as leaders, as comrades; some just do their duty, some excel. It is a battle like any other, where the resources of men are tested to the limit and each is faced with his own stark moment of self-revelation. ---------------------------In order to show the reader the true nature of combat, K ...

Toronto, 1990, Univ. of Toronto, 1st Canadian edition, hard bound w/DJ, Fine / Fine condition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 . 249 pages, illus, notes, bibliog, index. ....................................... From the outset of the Second World War Canadians wanted to avoid the horrors encountered on the western front in 1914-18, one of the most significant of which was "shell shock." Most medical personnel preferred not to assign to combat those who showed neurotic symptoms during training, but this approach was challenged by the Canadian Psychological Association and by the new Personnel Selection Directorate established in 1941. Personnel Selection claimed to be able to distinguish, before training, between those suited and those unsuited to combat duty. When Canadian troops went into battle in Italy, however, the preparatory work seemed to have had little impact. Canadian losses due to "battle exhaustion" were no less than those of other allied forces. Front-li ... Read more

2003, hard bound in dust jacket, New York, Basic Books, Fine/VG+ condition, 6x9, 304 pages, illus, map, notes, bibliog, index. What history calls the "Battle of the Atlantic" was really a full-scale war-within-a-war, fought from the beginning of hostilities in 1939 to the moment of cease-fire in 1945. Andrew Williams focuses on the first four years of this bitter conflict, during which time German submarines sank an astounding twelve million tons of Allied shipping. The story reaches its climax in May 1943, when the introduction of new weapons and tactics turned the tide of the battle and enabled the Allies to contain and finally defeat the dreaded German "wolf packs." Interweaving scores of first-person accounts from survivors of both sides, The Battle of the Atlantic follows the exploits of the charismatic U-boat commanders who led their crews to the hunt-and often to their deaths. It goes aboard the merchantmen and escort ships that were both victim and nemesis to the &quo ... Read more
