His superb watercolors, carefully arranged in a large album which has been kept and treasured by his family, present the Crimean War from a soldier's point of view, sometimes horrifying, sometimes whimsical, sometimes sentimental, but at all tines true to the prevailing atmosphere and events of the period. ----------------------------------------------------------------------The text is an abridged version of Lifers front !Headquarters by Lt.

New York, 1972, Harper & Row, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 464 pages, maps, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------------For twelve decades the state of California has figured prominently in the perpetuation of the Great American Dream. Its fabled allure has attracted millions of dreamers filled with yearning and getrich-quick hopes, ingenuity and recklessness, amazing strength and endurance. Today, twenty million people call themselves Californians—ten percent of the total population of the United States. Since the earliest Spanish explorations in the late 1500's through the present, California's exploitative history and growth have been both tumultuous and phenomenal. David Lavender's approach to this history is as insightful as it is informative. All the facts are here: the missions and the Indians, the struggles between the Mexicans and the Americans, the fabulous gold rushes, statehood in 185 ... Read more

New York 1986, Facts on File, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG cond ( remainder mark on bottom of page block), 7x10, 160 pp, prof illus in color & B&W. ----------------------------- A detailed study of the entire period of English - Spanish naval wars, from 1568 thru the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 to the battle off Lisbon on 1589. Four hundred years ago, in 1588, the Spanish Armada of Philip 11 of Spain set sail for England. Drawing on the wealth and resources of his vast Catholic empire, Philip had assembled a formidable force of ships and men, with the declared intention of seizing power in England. Had he succeeded, he would have become the dominant ruler in Europe and been able to extend his influence over all the emergent Protestant countries. The campaign of the Spanish Armada is thus one of the great climacterics of European history - it radically altered the balance of power in Europe. It is an exciting story and is here expertly told, from the conceptio ... Read more

Time/Life, Collector's Library of the Civil War. hard bound in black leather, Reprinted in 1982 from the 1866 first edition. Cover is embossed with picture of marching soldiers and two on horseback. Page Edges gilt. Ribbon page marker, 6 x 8 1/4, VG condition, 368 pages, --------------------------------------------The Civil War was a new kind of war in many ways. One novelty was the presence of newspaper correspondents who went into the field to report the conflict firsthand. Altogether, Northern and Southern newspapers sent more than 150 writers to camps and battlefields to provide their readers with eyewitness and exclusive accounts. Of those first American war correspondents, George Alfred Townsend was the youngest, wrote the most and became the best known (his career would stretch into the 20th Century). Townsend's reminiscences of Union armies, published a year after the War as Campaigns of a Non-Combatant, are among the finest by any Civil War reporter. ---- ... Read more

Appendice lists all King's published works '. ---------------------------------------------------------Captain Charles King (1844-1933) served seventy years in America's military forces and was decorated for fighting in five wars-a living rebuttal to the notion that old soldiers fade away loquaciously in their downtown clubs. But he did spin yarns. In fact, he became one of the best known chroniclers of the frontier army and the Indian wars of the 1870s, and an immensely popular writer of fiction. From his pen flowed dozens of novels and histories that made him the American Kipling. --------------------------------------------------------------Long overdue, Campaigning with King is the first study of that remarkable man's military and literary careers, written after his death by Don Russell, a respected authority on frontier histo ...

How these were acquired, manned and sent out on patrol provides the opening for this fascinating look at Canada's first submariners. Included in the early chapters is a detailed account of the building of the British submarines at Montreal, an industrial achievement as controversial as it was militarily successful. How these boats came to be, were built, manned and sent into action is fully covered. ------------------------------------------------------------------While a small band of Canadian volunteers manned our two "submarine boats" at home throughout the course of the Great War a handful of intrepid professionals we ...

VANWELL 1997, first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, , 7x10, 208 pages, illustrations,. notes, appendice, index.----------------------------------During the war, Canadian squadrons flew hundreds of operations over the North Atlantic, the English Channel, the North Sea and the Bay of Biscay. Such operations included reconnaissance flights as well as shipping strikes to Norway, the Netherlands and the French coast.

In all, 48 RCAF squadrons had served overseas by the end of the war.

Book Description: Doubleday, NY, 1979. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, ( dj price clipped), xv, 703 pages, illus., maps, appendices, glossary, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------------------------He was the most elusive, the most mysterious, the most paradoxical of all Hitler's lieutenants. Head of German intelligence during World War II, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris believed —ironically—that the war would ruin his country, and so he involved himself in at least two plots to overthrow the Nazi regime. He has been damned as Hitler's master spy and praised as the true hero of the German resistance. But the real nature of Wilhelm Canaris's role has never before been fully revealed. Now, Heinz Hohne has written a definitive biography of this strange man with divided loyalties—an incisive and detailed portrait that called for massive research and draws on previously unknown sources. Ham explodes the myth of Cana ... Read more

Yucca Tree, 1999, US first edition, hard bound w./dj,. 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, xv, 352 pages, a few illus and maps, bibliog, index. ----------------------------Chow time and Mail Call are the two most important events in the daily life of a soldier. This wartime saga of James E. Hildebrand is unique. From his induction at Ft. Dix, New Jersey, through his basic training at Camp Fannin, Texas, posting to Fort Meade, Maryland (including a bout with Scarlet Fever), to ship overseas to Italy and finally being assigned to the 45th Infantry Division and seeing action in France, incl the Vosges campaign, where he was wounded-- and his return to Naples, Italy, he continually wrote home. All of this is documented in possibly the most complete collection of wartime letters (perhaps 800) from a soldier to his family. His father had served during World War I and the letters he wrote home had been saved. James spent many pleasant hours during his childhood sitting in the attic and reading those letters whi ...

Poole 1980, Blandford, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, 185 pages, illustrated, index. .............................................................................War is a ghastly business and few more so than World War I. The lot of the Infantry in that War, and the manner in which they were used by High Command, quickly earned them the unenviable title "Cannon Fodder". Yet, despite the black awfulness of the trenches, life on the Western Front occasionally had its lighter side. All the features of World War I that made up the ordinary soldiers' lot are in this book. .......................................................................It is the story of A. Stuart Dolden, who served in the ranks of the 1st Battalion London Scottish Regiment -- the first British Territorial troops to go into battle in World War I and this book is based on a day-to-day diary kept by the author from his enlistment in 1914 to demobilisation in 1919. ...

Lobndon 1971, W H Allen, First Britih edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG / VG - condition ( one small dime size wear spot on front of dust jacket & price clipped ), 365 pages, illus, notes, bibliog, appendices. In the beginning World War I was an exciting, even glamorous adventure. On the ground, ladies waved their lovers off to battle, expecting them home before the snow fell. Into the clouds, headstrong young men flew their flimsy crates of canvas and woodat first simply to scout the ground action, but as the war beneath them degenerated from a noble confrontation to a mire of mud, manure and bloody rotting bodies, the air war developed on its own. The sky became the duelling area for `aces', the route of death-dealing bombers, the high road to glory that ended all too often in a flaming descent to earth. In The Canvas Falcons, Stephen Longstreet, whose accumulation of early aviation annals began when he was a schoolboy, relates the flesh-and-blood history of the men and ma ... Read more

New York 1980, St. Martin's Pr, us First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, , 224 pages. ----------------------------------------------- Captain Carlo Fantom, a Croatian, spake thirteen languages He was very quarrelsome and a great Ravisher - Said he, I care not for your Cause: I come to fight for your halfe-crowne, and your handsome women. Thus wrote John Aubrey in his Brief Lives-and from this first and only biography of Captain Fantom , Charles Underhill has created this magnificently sustained story of the life and adventures of this strange, violent man-a story told in Fantom's own words. Central Europe in the first half of the seventeenth century is in that state of near-anarchy which came to be called the Thirty Years' War. Mercenaries flourish, and none more so than Carlo Fantom. He is the model of the hard-headed soldier, doing what he is paid for with skill and courage-but when the money stops so does he. Only with certa ... Read more

Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press, 1986, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION, x, 306 pages, illus., maps, notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------------------------THE LEGENDS that die hardest are those of the romantic outlaw, and those of ' swashbuckling pirates are surely among the most durable. Swift ships, snug inns, treasures buried by torchlight, palm-fringed beaches, fabulous riches, and, most of all, freedom from the mean life of the laboring man are the stuff of this tradition — reinforced by many a novel and film. =-------------------------------------------------------It is disconcerting to think of such dashing scoundrels as slaves to economic forces, but so they were — as Robert Ritchie demonstrates in this lively history of piracy. He focuses on the shadowy figure of William Kidd, whose career in the late seventeenth century swept him from the Caribbean to New York, to London, to the Indian Ocean before ... Read more

The next heir to the throne of Scotland after the Royal Stuarts, he was constantly suspected of treacherous behaviour and was at last imprisoned by Charles I on a charge of treason for which he never stood trial. Despite his advantages of birth and wealth, he was consistently dogged by misfortune, the `Captain Luckless' indeed of Montrose's phrase. In this full-length biography, the first of Hamilton for 300 years, Mrs Rubinstein brilliantly unravels the personality and motivations of this mysterious man whose very mother once threatened to shoot him with her own hand, and whose ill-starred pol ...
