VG/ good ( dj shows extensive wear and chips)------------------------------------Only todays atomic submarines have outstripped the fabulous twin-funneled K boats--the biggest, fastest submarines of World War I.

Annapolis 1984, Naval Institute, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE condition ( dj has very light wear on dj edge), xviii, 356 pages, illus, maps, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------------------The first six months of naval operations during World War I are significant for what they reveal of initial British and German reactions to the challenge of war. Furthermore, those months represent the beginning of modern naval warfare. Until this study by James Goldrick, however, no book has offered a thoroughly detailed and balanced examination of the period. Unlike official histories that often present a stilted, biased viewpoint, The Kings Ships Were at Sea provides an engrossing and objective account of the action from both sides. Unlike popular histories that focus merely on the major battles, this book takes a close look at the day-to-day events that brought abou ... Read more

New York 1994, Harper Collins, later printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG./VG condition, xv, 601 pages, numerous illus & maps, chronology, bibliog, notes, index. ---------------------------------------------In any numbering of the great captains of history, the name of Erwin Rommel must stand in the first rank. He was the outstanding Axis field commander of the Second World War, and was respected, even admired, as well as feared by his opponents. Here, it seemed to the Allies, was a supremely professional soldier: chivalrous, decent, untainted by the crimes of the Nazi regime, carrying out his duty with often dazzling success. ------------------------------------------David Fraser's book-surely the definitive study-brings to Rommel's career not only the perceptions of an acclaimed biographer, but those of a distinguished soldier too: his insights into Rommel's mind and methods carry the authority of experience. He shows how inspiringly spontaneous and superficially hap ... Read more

St. Martin's Press, 1986, N Y, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition( light dj edge wear), 266 pages, illus., maps, bibliog., appendices, index. ----------------------------The German Armored Corps—the Panzerwaffe — was instrumental in the mighty Conquests of the Nazis between 1939 and 1942, and in the remaining years of the war it provided the very backbone of German defense. Although its strength never exceeded one-fifth of the German army, the commitment of the Panzerwaffe's officers to the traditional Annihilation Concept made an enormous impact on the Second World War, particularly on the Eastern Front. The titanic struggles that took place there, after the early victories in Poland, the West, and the Balkans, demonstrated the German tank soldiers' superior tactical abilities and provided the basis of Soviet war theories to this day.

KOREA : The War Before Vietnam

MacDonald, Callum A

Free Press, 1986, New York, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, xx, 330 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ----------------------------------------------------- Based on a wealth of official American, British, and Canadian documents-many only recently declassified. Callum MacDonald's Korea presents the clearest, most complete and unbiased account to date of the politics, strategy, and debate surrounding this disturbing (and still unresolved) conflict. Brilliantly dissecting the combatants' motives and tactics both off and on the battlefield, his powerful history traces the war's local origins and global effects, from the sudden prestige it accorded a young Maoist China to the support it rekindled for strengthening the NATO alliance against growing communist might. As MacDonald makes plain, Korea was quite unmistakably the war before Vietnam. Begun as a civil conflict among right and left factions of a former colonial state, the war soon ... Read more

THE KOREAN WAR 1950-1953

Catchpole, Brian

New York 2000, Carroll & Graf, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, x, 372 pages, illus & maps, notes, bibliog, index. --------------------------------------------------In June 1950 the North Koreans invaded South Korea. This book recounts these military operations, the slogging war on the ground as well as the UN naval superiority and the importance of air power. It also explains the diplomatic background of international relations between China and the West, the communist propaganda in the north, the issue of prisoners-of-war, the talks leading to armistice and the creation of the demilitarized zone. The war enabled the UN to act in an official capacity to defend a state under military attack , the only time during the Cold War it did so. But it did not enhance the reputation of the UN for resolving international disputes.

2008, 6 x 9, softbound edition, US first paper edition , xvi, 215 pages, notes, bibliog, index. ( no maps) ------------------------------------------------------- A new and critical analysis of Operation Citadel, the great German armor offensive of 1943 on the Eastern Front. Dunn takes an objective look at both ides, examining the strategic situation, the rebuilding of both armies from the previous campaign, their OB's, and the course of the entire campaign. The battle of Kursk was the last major German offensive on the Eastern Front. The battle began well for the Germans, but the Russians delayed them long enough for reserves to come forward. Soon the defenders outnumbered the attackers, and Hitler called off the attack. The Russian victory at Kursk resulted from a massive rebuilding of the Red Army in 1943, which included new unit organizations and weapons designed to counter the German Tiger and Panther tanks. The German defeat signalled the transfer of the initiative to the Russians and ... Read more
