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

  • 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 ...

New York. 1995, Simon & Schuster. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 416 pages, illus, maps, notes w/ bibliog., index. . ......................................................... Until now, the history of America's war in Vietnam has been incomplete. The origins of that conflict-the most controversial and painful chapter in American history since the Civil War-were in Laos, a remote, landlocked, mountainous country where the CIA waged a secret war against communism. Drawing on unprecedented access to previously closed files and on extensive interviews, Back Fire fills in the last missing piece in the puzzle of America's tragic involvement in Southeast Asia. ..................................................... In 1960, Laos was a seemingly peaceful, even sleepy kingdom of mostly primitive people. But in fact it was fast becoming one of the hottest fronts in the superpowers' (:old War. U.S. military advisers were tra ... Read more

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. ........................... ...

Annapolis 1994, Naval Institute, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 226 pages, illus, bibliog, index. --------------------------------------------------------- This epic World War 2 submarine saga follows the sister boats Squalus and Sculpin as they play out their dramatic destinies in the Pacific. The author, a seasoned journalist, re-creates their entire perilous journey, beginning with the rigorous stateside preparation of the crew. That training was put to the test almost immediately when the Squalus sank during a test dive in 1939. The revolutionary use of the McCann diving bell to save 33 trapped crewmen and the Sculpin's role in that historic rescue are the first of many incongruous twists of fate that bring the two subs together. The saga continues when the Squalus undergoes an unprecedented salvage and, rechristened the Sailfish, redeems its reputation through three years of battle. ------------------------------------------------------ ...

BACK TO BATTLE

Hennessy, Max .(Pseudonym of John Harris)

3rd book in Lion at Sea trilogy. New York, 1980, Atheneum, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 297 pages. .........................................................First The Lion at Sea, then The Dangerous Years—now in Back to Battle, Max Hennessy brings to a triumphant close the "bloody wonderful" (Kirkus Reviews) adventures of Commander Kelly "Ginger" Maguire of the British Navy. Jutland, Gallipoli, Odessa, Chianking — in his rise up the ladder of command, Maguire has seen a torrent of action, but nothing to prepare him for the ferocity that is about to erupt in the years 1936-1945. From Spain to the North Atlantic to Dunkirk, from Crete and Morocco to Normandy ( with Eisenhower), Kelly Maguire — together with old friends and old enemies —pitches into the thick of it, demonstrating again his extraordinary courage and resourcefulness —and his no less impressive talent for romance. For Maguire may at las ... Read more

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 ...

St Peter's, 1997, Ramrod Publs, UK first edition, 7x10, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 219 pages, well illustrated, index, bibliog. -------------------------------------------------------------------.Bader's Duxford Fighters: the Big Wing Controversy is amongst the most important Battle of Britain books ever published and is an essential addition to any aviation library. The author, a leading young aviation historian who remains a serving police officer with CID experience, presents the evidence collated throughout an impartial investigation. At last we have an accurate and extensive reference regarding the background to and air operations and politics of the Big Wing Controversy which was undoubtedly the most significant factor in the replacement of the two victors of the Battle of Britain: ACM Sir Hugh Dowding and AVM Keith Park. Political or tactical? That question is answered in this book which gives a unique insight into not only the air fighting, but also the po ... Read more

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 ...

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.

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 ...
