NAL Caliber, New York, 2010. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xviii, 489 pages, illus., maps, notes w/ bibliog. -----------------------------------In this companion to the HBO(r) miniseries-executive produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman, Hugh Ambrose reveals the intertwined odysseys of four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy carrier pilot during World War II. Between America's retreat from China in late November 1941 and the moment General MacArthur's airplane touched down on the Japanese mainland in August of 1945, five men connected by happenstance fought the key battles of the war against Japan. From the debacle in Bataan, to the miracle at Midway and the relentless vortex of Guadalcanal, their solemn oaths to their country later led one to the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot and the others to the coral strongholds of Peleliu, the black terraces of Iwo Jima and the killing fields of Okinawa, until at last the survivor ...

McGill-Queen's University Press 1998, first Canadian edition in paper, 6 x 9, VG condition, xvi, 539 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. ------------------------------More than 7000 Canadian soldiers participated in the Anglo-Boer War and for almost three years the Canadian public was mesmerized by events in South Africa. This text examines Canada's involvement in the Anglo-Boer War and the effect on the country, from the rancorous pre-war debate on the wisdom of Canadian participation through the soldier's experiences in the field to the public's perception of the war and how it altered Canadian opinion, politics and military development.

PANZER - The Armoured Force of the Third Reich

Cooper, Matthew & James Lucas

New York 1976, St Martin's, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7x10, VG/VG condition ( light foxing on some page margins - dj price clipped), 160 pages, well illustrated. -------------------------------------------This book presents a fresh interpretation of a controversial and fascinating subject. It is a comprehensive account of the reasons f'or the failure of the Third Reich's armoured force which, in the early years of the war, had won such remarkable victories in Poland, Flanders, France and the Soviet Union, humbling the world's most highly rated armies. Panzer illustrates how the theories of armoured warfare were applied in battle by taking four military operations as detailed examples: the lightning advance of Rommel's 7th Panzer Division across France in May 1940; the huge encirclement battle around Kiev in the summer and autumn of 1941 which resulted in the capture of over - 600,000 prisoners; the battle at Gazala in North Africa in 1942 which illustrates ...

Brockhampton Press, London. , 1998. Reprint edition in Fine / Fine condition, 8 x 10, 256 pages, massively illustrated in B&W photos, drawings and maps, notes, bibliog., index. ----------------------------------------iI was nothing short of a revolution — in military strategy — that caused a few Panzer divisions, with motorized infantry and air support, to cut a swathe across a continent boasting better armaments and an experienced military hierarchy. Within one calendar year, the greater part of western Europe was firmly gripped by the Wehrmacht, and the might of the Third Reich was able to turn to its eastern boundaries with a confident expectation of similar success. The tactics of this revolution, which saw men and machines deploy at a pace and with a power unprecedented and unforeseen, have been examined and analysed from that day to this, as has the inability of great European nations to counter it. -------------------------------------------------Panzer represents a ...

London 2000, Metro, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 386 pages, illus, maps, index. Since their foundation during the Second World War, the Parachute Regiment has acquired a formidable reputation as tough, fearless soldiers. "The Red Devils" have played a key role in many of the battles of the past sixty years - the capture of Sicily, the D-Day landing, the heroic but doomed attempt to capture the bridge at Arnhem. In the so-called years of peace since the Second World War, the Paras have seen action all over the world - from Cyprus, Palestine, Egypt, Borneo and the Falklands to Bosnia. Their service in Northern Ireland has been surrounded by controversy - the events of "Bloody Sunday" in Londonderry in 1972 are still the subject of fierce debate, and a continuing government inquiry. For his authoritative book, John Parker has gathered together the testimony of numerous veterans of the Parachute Regiment. Their first-hand accounts of the maj ... Read more

PATH FINDERS AT WAR

Bowyer, Chaz

London, later printing, Ian Allan, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1./2 x 11 1/2, glossy page stock, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), 160 pages, massively illustrated. ........................................................ Charged with the formidable task of locating and marking German targets for attack by the main force of Bomber Command, the Path Finder Force — No 8 (PFF) Group—was perhaps the most experienced and highly trained elite created within the Royal Air Force during World War 2. Its aircrew members were almost wholly volunteers and despite the terrifying odds against any individual, or complete crew, ever completing the stipulated 60-sorties tour of operations with the PFF, the most feared 'punishment' for PFF members was to be sacked and posted away to other units.

2004, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG- condition ( light dj edge wear), xiv, 796 pages, numerous illustrations, maps, bibliog, extensive bibliog, index. =--------------------------------The Mediterranean theater in World War II has long been overlooked by historians who believe it was little more than a string of small-scale battles-sideshows that were of minor importance in a war whose outcome was decided in the clashes of mammoth tank armies in northern Europe. But in this ground-breaking new book, one of our finest military historians argues that the Mediterranean was World War II's pivotal theater. Douglas Porch examines the Mediterranean as an integrated arena, one in which events in Syria and Suez influenced the survival of Gibraltar. The Middle Sea constituted a strategic piece of a global war where crucial military decisions were made: it was a passage that linked far-flung theaters; saved scarce Allied shipping; became an essent ...

Detailed history of RAF's # 8 Group, composed of elite Pathfinder Squadrons, which led the bomber groups over Europe and pinpointed the targets.

In the early years of the war. however. Bomber Command was far from fulfilling that formidable task: poor equipment and bad navigation were cited as prime Culprits. ....................................................
