With this abortive attack, the Battle of Britain began, a battle in which a few hundred men and airplanes ( many of which were obsolete) struggled against staggering odds, against fear, fatigue and desperation, to turn the tide against Germany. It was this battle which moved Churchill to say, "Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." ----------------------------------------To compile this definitive study of the Battle of Britain, Richard Collier employed a staff of thirteen, traveling 30 ...

The defeat of that attempt by the Company's officers involved the ruin of the governor-general, Sir John Shore, whose "failure" in dealing with the officers has been held against him by generations of historians. -------------------------------------------------------------------------Tracing the events from three points of view—those of the British government, the Company's government in Calcutta, and the officers of the Company's service—Raymond Callahan shows that the aspects of the Company's service which struck observers in London as inefficient and corrupt were, in the officers ...

In 1642 both Royalists and Parliamentarians expected that one great contest of arms would see the crushing of their enemies. When their field armies blundered into contact on the evening of 22 October 1642, Prince Rupert urged King Charles to array his army on the great ridge of Edgehill and give battle. The next day, amidst abject cowardice and absolute courage, the tide of battle swept Rupert’s cavalry to triumph, but saw victory snatched away as the Royalist infantry was hurled back by the defiant Parliamentarians.

ELECTRONICS AND SEA POWER

Hezlet, Vice Admiral Sir Arthur, KBE,CB, DSO, DSC, RN

New York 1975, Stein & Day, US First edition, hardbound w/dj, 6x9, VG/VG condition, x, 318 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ---------------------------------------------- The author's distinguished books already published, The Submarine and Sea Power and Aircraft and Sea Power, have traced two most important influences in contemporary naval strategy, both of which have arisen from 19th and 20th century technical discoveries. To these is now added a highly significant third influence - the electron - to complete the picture of the fundamentals of modern sea power. In the course of the Second World War there was the extraordinary advance in equipment from the time of the Battle of Cape Matapan, which was fought almost entirely visually, to the sinking of the Scharnhorst and the Battle of Surigao in the Pacific when the antagonists scarcely saw each other and the engagements were fought electronically. Cables, controlled mine fields, searchlights and electric firing of guns were a ... Read more

His career as a courtier-politician—spanning most of the reigns of Queen Elizabeth and James I—reveals more about the government and mores of Tudor and Stuart England than do the lives of such contemporaries as Hawkins, Drake, Frobisher, and Elizabeth herself. ---------------------------------------------In addition to commanding the navy in the most notable victories of the Elizabethan age, Howard presided over both the consolidation of naval strength under Elizabeth and the dissipation of that strength unde ...

New York, 1928, Harcourt Brace, first US regular edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG- condition (former owner's book pate on front paste down, dj price clipped , light chipping and light soiling to tan dj ), 296 pages, illustrated. ........................................ Six years after his "Queen Victoria" made the writing of biography a new art, Lytton Strachey turns to England's golden age and creates from the enigmatic figure of the Virgin Queen a passionate, lonely, hesitating woman, moulded by her superb intellect and by the long use of power into a majestic symbol of sovereignty. ...................... It is Mr. Strachev's accomplishment to have given life to this image of regality, to have found a woman under the piercing eyes, the red dyed hair, the huge hoop and ruff, the powdered pearls, the spreading gilded gauzes. Through this drama of the conflict of the crown with the powerful group who sought to revive feudalism, a drama m ... Read more

Brassey,s London 1996, first UK edition, 6x9, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, xxii, 426 pages, illus, bibliog, index. Much has been written about the Gulf War in the five years since Iraq's forces were expelled from Kuwait by an international coalition. This material has, however, focused for the most part on military accounts and journalists' snapshots or has formed an element in wider political memoirs. This book looks at the crisis over Kuwait in all its aspects -its background and causes; and the dramatic course of events as they unfolded over the eight tense months which followed the invasion in the first days of August 1990, as seen from the vantage point of the author's action station as British ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Particular emphasis is given to the crucial role played by Saudi Arabia as architect and lynchpin of the widely assorted coalition which came together to confront Iraq's aggression. Th ... Read more

New York 1998, Henry Holt, First US edition w/dj, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, ix, 740 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. "I shall never get into a war," President McKinley said just thirty-three days after the battleship Maine blew up in the harbor of Havana. But an America just far enough removed from the gore of the Civil War to think battle a romantic testing ground was at fever pitch. War would come, and with it, seismic changes in world power alignments. After this, America's first imperial overseas adventure, the nation would be acknowledged internationally as a global player with a navy second to none. And if the army fared less well in its "splendid little war" (despite the best efforts of Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders), no one seemed to notice. It was the dawn of the American Century. Now, moving from the councils of Madrid to the conferences in Washington, from the victory at Manila Bay to the battle of San Juan Hill, from factional in-fighting to in ... Read more

New York, 1999, Viking, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, ( dj price clipped) xviii, 797 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. I ---------------------------------------------It was the dawn of the Gilded Age; it welded the new western United States to the East with twin bands of iron; it opened a path for settlement and exploitation, utterly changing the West as it doomed the Plains Indian culture. After the Civil War, it was the century's most transformative chain of events. Beginning in 1842 with a visionary's dream to span the continent with a single railroad line, Empire Express captures three dramatic decades in which the United States effectively doubled in size, fought three wars, and began to discover a new national identity. Culminating in the driving of the Golden Spike in the Utah desert in 1869, which touched off a frenzy of celebration, the narrative ends in 1873 in Washington under the Capitol rotunda, with the crushing f ...
