London, Grub street, 2003 UK first edition, , HARD BOUND IN DUST JACKET, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, 416 PAGES, INDEX. ----------------------------------------In the seventeen years since The Daily Telegraph started allotting a special section to obituaries, it has published around 1,000 obituaries of soldiers, as well as almost equal numbers of sailors and airmen. The 100 to be found here, which have never before been collected in book form, were chosen to show the widest range of military experience in both world wars and other twentieth century conflicts. They include those who performed astonishing acts of bravery, such as the New Zealander Charles Upham, who won a Victoria Cross in Crete and a Bar in North Africa, the commando leader "Mad Jack" Churchill and Drum Major Buss, the bugler who rallied the Glosters at the Imjin river in Korea. Among the senior figures are General Mazek, who commanded the Polish 2nd Corps in Normandy, the rigorous Field Marshal Lord Carver an ... Read more

VG condition, original blue cloth with gilt top page edges, 4 1/2 x 7, xxxiv, 395 pages, illus, map. --------------------- A detailed contemporary account of the great Sioux Indian uprising in Minnesota in 1862 and the campaign of 1863 that followed. -------------------------The Lakeside Press Classics series was started in 1903 by Thomas E. Donnelley, then president of RR Donnelley & Sons Company and son of the founder. Thomas E. Donnelley believed that a simple book, dignified and well designed, would be an appropriate holiday gift. In the introduction to the first Lakeside Press Classics, he wrote, "If, in a modest way this volume conveys the idea that machine-made books are not a crime against art, and that books may be plain but good, and good though not costly, its mission has been accomplished". The basic format of the Lakeside Press Classics has remained the same for more than 100 years, tes ... Read more

THE DAMBUSTERS RAID

Sweetman, John

Motorbooks, Osceola, WI, 1990. Hardcover w/dj, Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Second Edition. 6 x 9, 219 pp., illus., maps, appears to have been assembled without a front free end-page, no sign that a page has been removed, we have seen many copies like this illus, maps, appendices, index, bibliog. ---------------------------------. Operation Chastise - the Dambusters Raid, as it became known - undertaken by 19 Lancasters of 617 Squadron on the night of 16 May 1943, was the most audacious bombing raid of the Second World War. For the loss of 11 aircraft, the Mohne and Eder dams in Germany's industrial heartland were breached, and a famous if controversial victory won. John Sweetman's book is the most comprehensive account of this legendary mission, from the development of Barnes Wallis' 'bouncing bomb' (in reality a revolving depth-charge) to every moment of the raid itself, under the charismatic command of Guy Gibson, VC. It recalls a time of commitm ... Read more

London 1994, Leo Cooper, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xii, 196 pages, illus, index. ..................................................... Few men have a better claim to be called a legend in his own lifetime than Guy Gibson. Leader of the famous Dambuster Raid of May, 1943 which became part of the popular folklore of the Second World War after the film in which Richard Todd took the part of the hero, he himself was tragically killed in an air crash in 1944. ................................................................... Born in India in 1918 and brought up in England in comfortable if somewhat disjointed circumstances, Guy Gibson joined the Royal Air Force in November, 1936. Thereafter his career can be seen as a battle between, on the one hand, his uncertain temperament and less than ideal private life, and, on the other, his undoubted skills as an airman and as a leader of men. The war was to bring him adventure and, later, fame. He ... Read more

Winston-Salem, 1989, Blair Publ, First US edition in dust jacket, 9 1/2 x 9 1/2, Fine/Fine condition, 207 pages, numerous illus, notes, index. In early 1864, a handful of Confederate sailors boarded the experimental submarine Hunley and let it sink to the bottom of the harbor off Charleston, South Carolina, for an extended submergence test. A candle served as their only means of telling when their oxygen supply was low; after twenty-five minutes, its flame would burn no more. The hatch covers could not be lifted because of the water pressure. Four crews, the men knew, had already perished aboard the deadly vessel. Fighting panic, the sailors began turning the manual cranks that drove the propeller-the Hunley's only means of propulsion. It was a harrowing two hours before they reached the surface. Weeks later, the Hunley destroyed the USS Housatonic in history's first submarine attack, though its unfortunate crew died in the moment of glory. Such acts of uncommon bravery are the subject ...

Phoenix Mill, 1997, Alan Sutton Publ. reprint of 1980 edition, 6 x 9, glossy page stock, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG. condition. 224 pages, prof illustrated. ------------------------------------------------------------------- An analysis of the Allied Gallipoli offensive against the Turks in WW I, with personal accounts interspersed, and an analysis of the top commanders. `Sacred ground of lost endeavour' or `Hell heaped up'? Controversy still rages today about the Gallipoli campaign, inspired by Winston Churchill and designed to knock Turkey out of the First World War, thereby opening a supply route to arms-starved Russia. Was it one of the greatest blunders of the war, misconceived from the start and mishandled by the tacticians? Or was it a strategic masterstroke, ruined by incompetence on the spot? Whichever view is accepted, the campaign was of decisive importance, its failure paving the way first to the collapse of the Imperial Russian army and later to socialist revolutio ... Read more

THE DANGEROUS YEARS

Hennessy, Max .(Pseudonym of John Harris)

New York, 1978, Atheneum, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, . fine/fine condition 292 pages. Second in trilogy about Royal Naval Officer Kelly Maquire. ........................................................................ The second volume in a trilogy that has been compared triumphantly to the saga of Horatio Hornblower, The Dangerous Years continues the British naval adventures of Lt. Kelly "Ginger" Maguire, an Anglo-Irishman of extraordinary courage and resourcefulness first introduced to readers in The Lion at Sea.

1987,Battery press, LIKE new copy, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2, vii, 107 pages, 128 photos, 3 maps, glossary, index. -------------------------------------------------------------A very in-depth and well illustrated history of this elite New Zealand Army unit, the SAS. Formed in the mid 1950's, they have seen considerable combat including operations in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. Since its formation in the mid-1950s the New Zealand SAS has seen active service in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam where, without exception, it served with distinction. Like other SAS units, the NZ SAS's mission is to respond to those grim situations where Regular Army units - or even the civilian police force - may not be able to act efficiently. The role of the NZ SAS therefore requires an extraordinarily high degree of operational flexibility and an exceptional personnel. Dare to Win reviews the NZ SAS's rigorous selection process; it describes the training, equipment and weapons employed ... Read more

London 1992, Arms & Armour pr, UK First edition in dj, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 214 pages, illus, maps, index. -------------------------------------------------------A vital component in all armies worldwide today, Special Forces can be traced back to the Biblical era, proving the importance and value of professional, dedicated and superbly trained elite warriors. From Genghis Khan and the Mongol hordes can be gleaned the predecessors of Blitzkrieg tactics in essence: the swiftest and most outstanding forces attacked the enemy in his weakest areas to achieve breakthrough and initiative. Their purpose lives on in modern special forces which essentially perform similar tasks today. The most significant development in their history is the emphasis placed on stealth and surprise: more important and tactically useful given the changed nature of war. Only in attitude is the modem soldier similar to his predecessors, as the weaponry he uses is now often at the leading edge of technology. Ye ... Read more

New York 1965, Random House, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 217 pages. ...................................................... They didn't look like desperate criminals, the thin, white, sickly man and the beautiful pale-brown girl. Yet Lieutenant Naude of the South African Special Branch thus described them and was able to borrow the services of Sean Ryan from a special branch of English Intelligence to track them down in London and turn them over to his tender mercies. ........................................................ Michael Miller, the lieutenant said—and he identified him as a "Jew boy"—was a fund raiser for a group of liberals trying to help South African natives. The girl was a "Sheila," colored of course, with whom he'd run off. Lieutenant Naude was an enormous, powerful man with a roaring voice and eyes cold as chips of brown glass. From the beginning Sean was uneasy in his presen ... Read more

Commonly known as "The Battle of the Bulge," it _ involved twenty-nine German and thirty-two Allied divisions.

Here, of course, is the story of Bastogne, whose defenders carved their niche in the annals of American military exploits. In the midst of defeat and uncertainty they held their ground, a solid rock in a German sea. The defense was epic, spectacular, but viewed in the lig ... Read more

New York 1990, Knopf, First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), illus, 3 maps, notes, bibliog, index. .................................................................... HENRY MORTON STANLEY, who enjoys a wry immortality for the classically fatuous phrase with which he greeted David Livingstone on the shore of Lake Tanganyika, was the most celebrated explorer of an age that worshipped explorers as ours reveres movie stars and rock musicians. A self-made man, imbued with the triumphalism of the Victorian culture from which he sprang, he conquered a continent through grit, resourcefulness, and sheer will. His life is one of the great adventure stories of all time. Stanley was born illegitimate in Wales in 1841, was brought up in a workhouse, fled to America, fought in the Civil War, and became a newspaperman, first covering the Indian Wars and eventually becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. The publisher of the New York Herald sent ... Read more

Accompanying their spouses in the most extraordinary, tough, sometimes terrifying circumstances, they have struggled to bring their civilization with them. Their stories - from ambassadresses downwards - are a feast of eccentricity, genuine hardship and genuine heroism.

Callison, Brian

New York, 1973, Putnam's, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION ( very light dj edge wear ), 287 pages, 1 map. .................................................................In the predawn darkness of November 29, 1941, a fleet of warships Toyed silently toward the Nazi outpost on Alvik, Norway, a tiny fishing port of strategic importance, whose military population was that morning more concerned with a warm breakfast than with the possibilities of impending attack. Ashore was a varied garrison: Herr Major Doring, lifetime officer in the German army and visiting dignitary at the post, unsure of his present Führer and weary of war; Leutnant Sur See Rex, senior officer at Alvik, struggling to establish himself in the Nazi superrace; Soldat Kruger, to whom war was a movie made by Errol Flynn; pilot Paul Fichte, doomed to die at the hands either of the British or of the SS. And aboard the ships was an equally diverse task force: Norwegian nationals, bound ... Read more

D-DAY - THOSE WHO WERE THERE

Gardiner, Juliet

Collins & Brown, London, 1994. Hardcover w/dj,. 1st Edition. Hardback First Edition in Fine condition; 192 pp with b/w photographs in the text, 7 x 10,numerous illustrations, bibliog, index. -------------------------D-Day: 6 June 1944, the day the Allied troops landed on the Normandy beaches and began the final assault on Hitler's `Fortress Europe'. The logistics of landing almost 250,000 men on a 60-mile stretch of heavily fortified coastline are almost unimaginable. By Whitsun 1944, Britain had begun to resemble a vast military warehouse, with jeeps and trucks parked along what seemed like every road in the south and west of England, tanks ranked in carparks and forecourts, and rows upon rows of bombs stored under tarpaulin in fields — all labelled `Europe'. The roads were jammed with soldiers in transit, all trains were requisitioned for the troops, and women knew that their menfolk 'somewhere in southern England' might be one of that perilous first wave across the Ch ...

Simon & Schuster, New York, NY, 1994. first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition, 655 pages, illus., maps, notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------ Published to mark the 50th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, Stephen E. Ambrose's D-Day: June 6, 1944 relies on over 1,400 interviews with veterans, as well as prodigious research in military archives on both sides of the Atlantic. He provides a comprehensive history of the invasion which also eloquently testifies as to how common soldiers performed extraordinary feats. A major theme of the book, upon which Ambrose would later expand in Citizen Soldiers, is how the soldiers from the democratic Allied nations rose to the occasion and outperformed German troops thought to be invincible. The many small stories that Ambrose collected from paratroopers, sailors, infantrymen, and civilians make the excitement, confusion, and sheer terror of D-day come alive on the page.
