Tuscaloosa, 1992, Univ. of Alabama, US first edition, 6x9, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE condition, x, 293 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index --------------------------------------------------------G Company's War is the story of a World War II rifle company in Patton's Third Army as detailed in the journals of S/Sgt. Bruce Egger and Lt. Lee M. Otts, both of G Company, 328th Regiment, 26th Infantry Division. What distinguishes it from other accounts of combat in World War II is its parallel day-by-day records of the same events as seen by two men in the same company, one an enlisted man, the other an officer. These are the voices of ordinary GIs, the men who did the fighting, not the generals and statesmen who viewed events from a distance. -----------------------------------------------------The two authors came from different parts of the country—Egger from the mountains of central Idaho and Otts from a small town in the Alabama Black Belt. They did not know ... Read more

London 1996, Greenhill, paper edition Fine condition, 7x10, 80 pages, glossy pages stock, 123 photos incl a number of original color. With 123 photographs and in-depth captions, Jonathan Gawne gives a comprehensive picture of the U.S. Army at war in the Pacific. Twenty-two U.S. Army Divisions - including one cavalry and one airborne - saw combat in the Pacific Theatre (compared with only six divisions of Marines). The fighting ranged from the cold Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska, down the California coast and across the South Pacific Ocean to Australia. In the Southwest Pacific the fighting took place in thick, steamy jungles and on tall mountains. Further west men fought in China and Burma, where the mountains marked the start of the Himalayas. Jonathan Gawne examines the development of army uniforms, equipment, vehicles and even food, which each had to be adapted in order to meet the special demands of war in all manner of terrain and climate.

GALLEON - A Novel

Pope, Dudley

New York 1986, Walker, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, 258 pages -------------------------------------------------------------- 3rd in the Ned Yorke nautical novel series. Cromwell is dead and King Charles II has been restored to the throne of a jubilant England officially at peace with Spain. In distant Jamaica, Ned Yorke, the leader of the Buccaneers, and his second-in-command, the irrepressible Sir Thomas Whetstone, begin building fine new houses on their plantations. But trouble soon brews in their sunny Caribbean retreat: the new Governor sent out from England thinks Ned's Brethren of the Coast are a gang of bloodthirsty pirates, whom he promptly puts outside the law. The Governor refuses to accept Ned's warning that peace in Europe has not changed Spain's decree of No Peace Beyond the Line: the King of Spain regards the West Indies as his private estate and any foreign trespassers face death. ------------------------------- ...

GALLIPOLI

Moorehead, Alan

  • Quantity available: 1
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 boat types to get their men ashore in the first assaults. Command and control of combined arms in the ship-to-shore movement evolved from a series of tactical blunders For this, and a ... Read more

GALLIPOLI - The Novel

Bennett, Jack

New York 1981, St Martin's press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 280 pages. -----------------------------------------------------------Novel based on the screenplay for the movie with Mel Gibson Archy Hamilton "came into the world running." He grew up on his father's farm in the Australian outback with two great dreams: to run as fast as the famous Harry Lasalles, and to join the dashing Light Horse brigade. Frank Dunne was from the slums of Perth, the son of a hard-drinking Irishman who had nothing but curses for "England's bloody war." Frank's dream was his own little bike shop, a business that would take him far away from the squalid tenements on Pratt Street. He could run faster than anyone in Western Australia-at least, until he raced Archy Hamilton. Together they joined up, eager for glorious adventure in a foreign land, and were sent to the battle of Gallipoli. Gallipol ... Read more

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.

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 ...
