I AM LAZARUS

Berlin, Sven

  • Quantity available: 1
New York, 1961, Norton, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/.Good+, ( dust jacket has numerous small chips and tears , spine sun faded), 209 pages, 8 drawings & several maps by the author. 1 Am Lazarus is a passionate, enlarging story of battle. Here is a man, a painter, and a fine writer too, who began his war as a conscientious objector, and then moved across his own fences into the narrow, absorbing, boring, maddening, exciting life of a soldier in the ranks. He became part of a forward observation team for a heavy-artillery regiment under Montgomery, and with it traversed Europe from Normandy to the German border. There is in his account the exploration of self in battle, the ceaseless lonely conquest of fear, the growing knowledge of other and different men. Throughout there is an extraordinarily effective interweaving of the author's outward experiences - descriptions of battle, of refugees, of places, of friends, of sudden brief momen ... Read more

AN IMAGE OF WAR

Henniker, Mark

London 1987, Leo Cooper, UK First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, ( light dj surface scuffing) 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, , 266 pages, index, maps, index. ------------------------------------- Those who served in Malaya during the Emergency and who had the good fortune there-after to read Brigadier Henniker's brilliant account of his time as commander of 63 Gurkha Infantry Brigade, Red Shadow over Malaya, are unlikely to forget the skill with which he evoked the unique atmosphere of that unusual campaign. It will, therefore, come as no surprise to them to find that his touch is equally assured in this new volume of memoirs in which he casts the net of his memory further back and over a much wider canvas. In May, 1940, he was a Captain in the Royal Engineers, at home on leave with his parents in Suffolk. Soon, after a brief encounter with the CIGS at his Club, he is off to France where Monty tells him that There is nothing to be afraid of in the Germans. We shall see the ... Read more

IMAGES OF WAR - The Artist's Vision of World War II

McCormick, Ken & H D Perry, Eds, foreword by John Hersey

New York, 1990, Orion, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 10 x 11 1/2, glossy page stock,453 pages over 200 color paintings, ............................... While most of the world went to war with guns and ammunition, there were others who carried brushes and paint to the fray. Although little known at the time—and barely remembered half a century later—artists from all nations committed to paper or canvas their impressions of the immense events of which they were part. No war in history was as widely chronicled in art as was World War II. Some artists were commissioned by their governments or armed forces to record the battles, while others just felt the need to express their vision of the war. Some were already famous, and some became famous after-ward. Others made no subsequent mark on the art world, and still others never made it home at all. Ken McCormick and Hamilton Darby Perry, assisted by a team of researchers, have selected an ... Read more

London 1993 reprint of 1970 ed, Leo Cooper, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition,( very small corner bump) , 6x9, 227 pages, bibliog, index. ................................... In his original introduction John Terraine writes: `The impacts of war are limitless, and in many respects, unfathomable. In the First World War, four broad levels of impact upon Britain may be discerned: impact upon the soldiers and sailors in the battle line - the severest of all; impact upon the military leaders (the generals above all) who directed them - this also could be severe; impact upon politicians who directed the generals and admirals and here the severities begin to change their substance; impact upon the people whom the politicians represented - this is where generalisation must always be taken with large pinches of salt. The patriotic widow who loses all her sons is a part of Public Opinion; so is the Conscientious Objector; so is the profiteer. One cannot make 40 million separate statements; yet o ... Read more

In his second book on Victorian life, Brian Thompson recounts the beginnings of the end of British Empire through the story of three men - the explorer Samuel Baker, whose second wife was a slave; his brother Valentine, who indecently assaulted a girl on a train and their friend Gordon of Khartoum, who preferred the company of me ...

Chicago, 1990, Univ of Chicago press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, xiv, 198 pages, notes w/ bibliog, index. In a study that extends well beyond military history, David B. Ralston documents the ways in which five different countries—Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Egypt, China, and Japan—refashioned their armed forces along European lines during the three centuries after 1600. The appropriation of Western military institutions in countries outside of Europe was, Ralston argues, the major force driving these countries to adopt European administrative, economic, and cultural modes. Following the same format in his discussion of each country, Ralston makes this central theme in world history easily accessible to students while offering scholars a sophisticated understanding of the exact nature of the changes brought about by Europeanizing military reforms.
