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. But no other class of warship suffered so much calamity and controversy. Authorized by Churchill, these steam-powered submarines were the best-concealed debacle in British naval history.

KING EDWARD III

Packe, Michael

Routledge and Kegan Paul, London, 1983, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION, xvii, 318 pages, notes, index. ---------------------------------------Edward III (1312-77) was one of the greatest English kings, and his fifty-year reign was rich in dramatic events and vivid contrasts. He waged a fierce campaign against the Scots, and his claim to the throne of France started the Hundred Years War, in which the spectacular victories of Sluys, Crecy and Poitiers made the king and his eldest son, the Black Prince, into figures of legend. This was the age of chivalry, symbolized by Edward's founding of the Order of the Garter. It was also the age of the Black Death, the greatest catastrophe of the Middle Ages.No full-scale biography of Edward has appeared since Victorian times, and the standard work has remained that by Dr Joshua Barnes, printed in 1688. The present book is the only complete account of the reign of Edward III, from its violent beginnings as he aven ... Read more

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.

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
