London 1971, Leach, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, v, 261 pagesillustrations .................................................Minesweepers do not feature prominently, if at all, in the literature about warships. The reason is simple. The fighting ships of any great navy form a hierarchy. This is true of the Royal Navy and was most evident during the Second World War when the fleet had expanded to include hundreds of ships and small craft of different shapes sizes and functions. In the precisely graded pyramid of prestige pride of place went to the battleships, aircraft carriers and cruisers, while minor war vessels such as minesweepers belonged unmistakably to a lower order. Squat and slow, they lacked the rakish elan of destroyers and MTBs or the sinister sleekness of submarines. They were the skivvies of the fleet, their task to keep the sea-corridors clean, an unglamorous role but necessary. And never more necessary than when there was a large-scale inc ... Read more

Doubleday & Co., Garden City, NY, 1978. . Book Condition: Very Good.(small Christmas and date on front free end paper), Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good ( light dj wear), . First Edition. 6 x 8 1/2, 455 pages, illus, index. --------------------------------This book is a unique history of World War told in very human and intimate terms by one hundred veterans of that "war to end all wars." Coming from diverse economic and racial backgrounds, and representing all branches of the military — machine gunners, cooks, fliers, infantrymen, and stretcher-bearers—they are the unsung heroes who, as young men, muddled through the overwhelming experience of a major war. With astonishing clarity of detail, and often with wit and humor, they recall hectic days in boot camp, long days on the troopships with the threat of German submarines, memories of bawdy songs and jokes in the trenches, the gas attacks, the waiting and the dying.

THE MAKING OF ARTHUR WELLESLEY

Bennell, Anthony S

Mumbai, 1997, Orient Longman,Indian first edition, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG CONDITION ( light bump on 1 corner ), 235 pages, glossary, bibliog., index. -------------------------------------------Arthur Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, first came to prominence in India. Partly because he was in India at the time of the Governor- Generalship of his elder brother Richard, Lord Mornington and later first Marquis Wellesley, he was given significant military command at a young age. In the contest of the East India Company with the Maratha Confederacy, fought out in three wars, that of 1803-1805 marked the point at which the emergent British power directly challenged the Maratha power for the paramountcy of India. In this conflict, Arthur Wellesley was given significant political authority. This study of the years 1803-1805 draws on the correspondence of the day. Arthur Wellesley himself knew that his training in India was the background to his later extended military aut ... Read more

New York 2001 , Harper Collins, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, , xix, 348 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -------------------------- History books report-and rightly so-that it was the strategic and intelligence gathering brilliance of the Duke of Wellington (who began his military career as Arthur Wellesley) that culminated in Britain's defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo in 1815. Nearly two hundred years later, many of General Wellesley's subordinates are still remembered for their crucial roles in these historic campaigns. But Lt. Col. George Scovell is not among them. The Man Who Broke Napoleon's Codes is the story of a man of common birth-bound, according to the severe social strictures of eighteenth-century England, for the life of a tradesman-who would in time become his era's most brilliant code-breaker and an officer in Wellesley's army. In an age when officers were drawn almost exclusively f ... Read more
