Bantam, , New York, 1999, US first edition, hard bound in dj, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6 x 8 1/2, 367 pages. AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - signed by the author on a custom book plate. 5th in the series. ----------------------------------------- At the close of the year 1918, forced to flee England, Sherlock Holmes and his nineteen-year-old apprentice Mary Russell enter British-occupied Palestine under the auspices of Holmes’s enigmatic brother, Mycroft. Their arrival coincides with a rash of unsolved murders that has baffled the authorities and seems unrelated to the growing tensions in the area among Jew, Moslem, and Christian. Still, no one is too pleased at Holmes’s insistence on reconstructing the most recent homicide in the desert gully where it occurred. What they unexpectedly uncover will lead Russell and Holmes through an exotic gauntlet of labyrinthine bazaars, verminous hovels, cliff-hung monasteries—and into mortal danger. In the jewel-like city of Jerusalem, they will at l ... Read more

New York 1987, Morrow, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition, 305 pages, glossary. -------------------------------------------------------- The Offering is the true story of a lieutenant fresh from West Point who arrives for his tour of duty in Vietnam at the worst part of the war. He served with the 101st Airborne division, commanding a LRRP platoon, and later as an advisor to the South Vietnamese army. Tom Carhart's vivid re-creation of those hellish days keeps his faith with those who offered themselves to their country. Some returned whole. Some came home badly wounded.

They are remembered on the black granite panels of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. -----------------------------------------------------------Carhart presents real truths about men at war. Not every soldier is brave. Not every officer is right when giving orders. Nor does Carhart hide his o ... Read more

Wingate, John

  • Quantity available: 1
New York 1976, St. Martin's, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/4 x 8 , FINE/FINE CONDITION, 199 PAGES, 2 MAPS. ....................................................... Oil is discovered off the shore of Scotland. The exploitation of this most valuable commodity will affect the whole of the beautiful coastline, from Cape Wrath to the Clyde. It will also bring great prosperity to the people living in this area — but will the inevitable new way of life be any better, or the loss of wildlife and familiar scenery be too great a price to pay for material well-being ? Sulisker One, the huge steel platform built in Innochervie, must be completed in time for the following year's weather window. Nothing is going according to plan — could there be people who are deliberately trying to sabotage all efforts ? What can the British government, or the British Navy, do to protect their newest asset ? John Wingate is writing at the top of his form — a well-researched, s ... Read more

Which was the worst menace—soldiers of the enemy, marauding Comanches, desperate ranchers or the long hot days with nothing to do? The cavalry and infantry troops had 'all these with a host of other troubles and became the unsung heroes of the Western push. Picking up landmarks half-buried in the desert sands, author Hart takes you back to Civil War times when the flimsy forts were thrown together as settlers and armies moved West and the Indians moved in.

The Allied victory at Omaha Beach was a costly one. A direct infantry assault against a defense that was years in the making, undertaken in daylight following a mere thirty-minute bombardment, the attack had neither the advantage of tactical surprise nor that of overwhelming firepower. The American forces that landed on the beach were forced to improvise under enemy fire, and although they were ultimately victorious, they suffered terrible casualties. Why did the Allies embark on an attack with so many disadvantages? Making extensive use of primary sources, Adrian Lewis traces the development of the doctrine behind the plan for the invasion of Normandy. He examines the decisions made at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels as well as the personalities of and relation- ships between key decision makers to explain why the battles for the beaches were fought as they were. Although blame for the Omaha Beach disaster has traditionally been placed on tactical leaders at th ... Read more

New York 1974 , Knopf, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG / VG- (edge of black dj flap as 3 small tears), 6x9, 241 pages, illus & maps. ********The death of General Gordon in Khartoum at the hand of the Dervishes, the followers of the fanatical Mahdi, is one of the most celebrated events in the history of the 19th Century. Equally dramatic and colorful, but perhaps less well-known, is the extraordinary battle fourteen years later in 1898, in which Kitchener avenged the murder of Gordon at Omdurman, just across the Nile from Khartoum. -----------------------------------The story of the battle which followed, a clash between spears, swords and frenzied courage on the one hand and the grim application of rifle and gunboat fire on the other, is breathtaking, bizarre and beautifully handled by the author. Towards the climax came the last great cavalry charge in history, that of the 21st Lancers, made memorable by one of the young officers who rode in it, Winston Churchill. ... Read more

  • Quantity available: 1
Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1918. Hard bound in original blue cloth, first UK edition, VG condition( very light edge wear ), 261 pages, illustrated, maps. ------------------------- THE Authors have given us at first hand in fascinating form an absorbing and realistic narrative of stirring times in the annals of the Royal Naval Division. They have seen with their own observant eyes, and been themselves a part of all they describe in many lands. Accuracy is the dominant note through all their graphic pen and pencil pictures. It was my privilege to see this wonderful Division in the making when the raw material was composed of an assortment of men strangely varied, but of a high physical standard. They were all keen to learn, the war being urgent and dispatch necessary. Hence in a marvellously short time they became transformed by their Marine and Naval Instructors into the wonderful fighting-men portrayed in these pages. Of good physique to start with, their training imbued them with the ready ... Read more

Bloomington Indiana University Press 1996, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xix, 499 pages, illus, maps, roster, notes, bibliog, index. .................................................................. "On Many a Bloody Field" follows one of the Civil War's most famous combat organizations - Company B, 19th Indiana Volunteers of the Iron Brigade - in a vivid account of ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances. Alan Gaff follows the men from recruitment through mustering out, from the tedium of camp to the excitement of battle. Marches and battles are described in detail, but Gaff also devotes close attention to how the war affected individuals, both physically and emotionally.

Stroud 1997 , Budding books( Sutton Publ) r/p of 1985 edition, illustrated hard cover, VG/VG CONDITION, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 277 pages, numerous illus, glossary. -----------------------------------------------A large collection of first person accounts of life and combat in the British & Commonwealth armies in France during the Great War. The official histories of World War I are accounts of strategy and tactics, political and logistical considerations, and after reading them a reader might well wonder why they rarely mention soldiers except in terms of military units. Even regimental histories devote much more space to plans and concepts than to the men who were used to implement the plans. ---------------------------------------------------------- But at its lowest level the history of the `Great War' is made up of millions of trivial incidents, for something happened each day to each man – something that made him laugh or cry or sigh. The soldier laughed readily in that era and ... Read more

He was often employed as a foreword artillery observer, and saw extensive combat at Normandy, Arnhem, Battle of the Bulge, Siegfried Line, Huertgen Forest, the Rhine and on to Berlin. The “All Americans” of the 82d Airborne Division participated in some of the toughest fighting of World War II. As a teenager, John McKenzie joined the division shortly before the Normandy Invasion. He was one of many green, unblooded replacements drawn from the holding depots in England to help fill out the 82d’s ranks, which had been badly depleted by their losses in Sicily and Italy. ------------------------------------ ...
