GALLIPOLI

Moorehead, Alan

1997 PAPER r/p of 1956 ed, Wordsworth pr, , 6x9, 384 pages, VG cond, lllus & maps, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------------------In an exceptionally well-told story, Alan Moorehead describes the first great amphibious campaign of the twentieth century. Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, was its strongest proponent. He was inevitably, if unfairly, blamed for the fiasco that followed: a plan so admirable in concept and so abominable in its execution. The idea was born from the stalemate already developing on the Western Front late in 1914. An Anglo-French campaign to force the Dardanelles was designed to link up the allies and at the same time sever Turkey from the other Central Powers. During the course of the fierce fighting that followed, the potentialities of the fledgling submarine and air services were first explored. Modern naval guns were pitted against shore batteries, the landing force experimented with dozens of b ... Read more

Frame, T, R

Kangaroo Press, Kenthurst, 1st Australian 1990., paper covers, 5 1/4 x 8 1/4, FINE CONDITION, 240 pages, illus, plans, maps, appendices, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------Garden Island has been the focus of all naval activity in Australia's quarter of the globe for over two centuries and has been the historic home of the Royal Australian Navy since its establishment in 1911.

This book describes the use of the island for naval purposes by the First Fleet in 1788, its seizure by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1811, the protracted negotiations that led to the Navy's return and its subsequent development as one of Australia's most important and strategically valuable naval facilities. Set within the context of the waning fortunes of British naval power, the growth of the city of Sydney and the creation of a New South Wales government, this comprehensive and in places controversial account analyses the force ...

John Henry Winder (1800-1865) had served in the U.S. Army for almost forty years before resigning in 1861 to join the Confederacy. C.S.A.

GENERAL GORDON

Garrett, Richard

London 1974, Arthur barker, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG CONDITION, 240 pages, illus, 2 maps, index. -------------------------------------------------------------------What kind of man was General Gordon, the victim of Khartoum? A politically naive soldier, who aspired to govern? A religious fanatic, or the epitome of a practising Christian? Or was he, more simply, an eccentric Victorian adventurer? During his hazardous career, Gordon seemed to be the very essence of muscular Christianity — the prototype, perhaps, of a Boys' Own Paper hero. In reality, however, he was a man tormented by conflict. Out of the turmoil came a simplicity, a clearness of vision, which was dangerous. In a world of statesmen who would happily bend the truth to suit their needs, he was uncomfortably the odd man out. Gordon was the type of man who is irresistible to writers and theorists. Richard Garrett's biography, a worthy contribution to the line of Gordon literature, tells the ... Read more

He was the last surviving five-star commissioned officer of the United States and the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. ------------------------------------His posthumous autobiography, A General's Life, was published in 1983; the book was begun by Bradley himself, who found writing difficult, and so Clay Blair was brought in to help shape the autobiography; after Bradley's death, Blair continued the writing, making the unusual choice of using Bradley's first-person voice. The resulting book is highly readable, and based on extremely thorough research, including exten ... Read more
