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 ...

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 ...

The catalyst for the formation of British airborne forces came with the spectacular display of the capabilities of airborne assault by the German forces in the blitzkrieg against the west in 1940.

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

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. It has been argued that the offensive against Germany by RAF Bomber Command was one of the most significant strategic components of the British war effort. The Casablanca Directive of 1943 required the bomber force to ensure 'the progressive destruction and dislocation of the German military industrial and economic system. and the undermining of the morale of the German people'. 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. .................................................... It was not until the middle of 1942 that the tide began to turn in favour of Bomber Command with the creation ... Read more

Washington, 1987, Office of the Air Force, first US paper edition, 8 1/2 x 11, VG condition, 94 pages, maps, illus,. ..................................This study examines the origin and development of American close air support doctrine and practice in World War II. The idea for the study resulted from a review of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Army and Air Force chiefs of staff, concluded on 22 May 1984, and of the initiatives that emerged from that historic document, particularly Initiative 24, which reaffirmed the Air Force's mission to provide close air support to the Army. The concentration is on the North African campaign because that was the first major large-unit test of American ground armies in World War II, and in that campaign the basic system of close air support for American ground and air forces in World War II was first worked out.

Boston 1972, Houghton Mifflin, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG condition, ( gift inscription on front free end paper), xx, 996 pages, illus, notes, glossary, index. Few generals have been more praised, hated, honored, and misunderstood than George S. Patton, Jr. A man of many masks, he is familiar as the great combat leader of World War II, commander of the Third Army and archetype of the sweeping field commander who, with his glorious tanks, swept across Africa, Sicily, France, and Germany. Yet many of the most intriguing sides of General Patton have remained hidden. Until now, no historian has had available to him the full range of Patton's complex mind, a mind as much tormented by doubts and driven by passions as it was inspired with dreams of military glory. To Martin Blumenson, the distinguished military historian, the Patton Papers have been opened, permitting a full-scale edition of all the significant documents - among them personal letters and diary entries.

PEMBERTON: A BIOGRAPHY

Ballard, Michael B

Jackson, Mississippi, Univ. Press of Mississippi, 1994. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiii, 250 pages, illus, map, notes, bibliog., index. ............................................ It was the sad fate of General John C. Pemberton (1814-1881), a Northerner serving in the Confederate army, to die in disgrace and humiliation. Because he surrendered Vicksburg to General Grant, Confederates considered him a traitor. Because he lost this strategic southern port on the Mississippi, Pemberton was branded as an incompetent. In this discerning new biography, the first to examine Pemberton's life and career in full scope, Michael Ballard credits General Pemberton for military prowess that previous Civil War scholars have denied him. Here his strength is shown to be in administration, not in the theater of combat. Ballard persuasively argues that if Pemberton's abilities had been properly used, he could have made a positive contribution to the Confederate c ... Read more

Annapolis 1993, Naval Institute press, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG- /VG, slight bump on upper right corner, 445 pages, illus, charts, graph, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Did the U.S. Navy avoid Congress's explicit direction to "navalize" the winning design in a fly off competition-by lying to Congress with the argument that the winner was not carrier capable and then develop the losing aircraft into an even worse fighter for its carrier squadrons? To find the answer James Stevenson, an experienced aviation writer, dug through government files and interviewed key players to present this hard-hitting, behind-the-scenes account of the development of one of the Navy's current frontline aircraft. His investigation exposes the politics of Pentagon weapons procurement, a process that pits service against service, the military against Congress, admirals against generals, pilots against engi ...
