New York: St. Martin's Press, 1974, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 7 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION ( very light dj edge wear ), 286 pages. ................................................ 3rd book in the series. ....`We British, Dornoch - we don't spy. We-er-use Political Officers . . Bloody Francis Fettleworth, divisional commander at Peshawar knew only too well what a brittle thing the Pax Britannica had become on the North-West Frontier, where his garrison was the last outpost of the Raj facing the Khyber Pass and the rugged Afghan hills. And it was in these hills that trouble was being fermented on perhaps an unprecedented scale. The attack would be united under a Pathan warrior, Nashkar Ali Khan. It would be touched off by the word of the sadhu, a holy man awaiting the sign of Mahomet to mobilize an army which could sweep down and annihilate Peshawar as a first step to driving the British out of the sub-continent. ......................................... ...

THE SAILOR'S WAR 1914 - 18

Liddle, Peter H

  • Quantity available: 1
Poole, 1985, Blandford , 2nd printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 8x10, VG/VG condition , 224 pages, prof illustrated. World War One was a young man's war at sea as much as on land, but their stories are seldom told. Now, thanks to the 1914-18 Personal Experience Archives at Sunderland, their experiences can be understood. Using contemporary diaries and letters and later recollections of young officers and ratings, Peter Liddle has compiled Sailor's War. For once a war book can truly be called unique. The drama of battle is conveyed in the words and impressions of the men and boys who fought whilst the desperate spirit of the prolonged Dardanelles/Gallipoli venture is all too clear. But the book breaks new ground in other areas. It does not just cover the major battles, actions and operations but deals with the unusual and less well-known aspects of the war at sea. Here is service in the Baltic or the Sea of Marmora in submarines; here are operations in the Caspian Sea an ... Read more

A SAILOR'S WAR

LOMBARD-HOBSON, Sam,Captain RN

St. Martin's New York, 1983. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 12, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 175 pages. -------------------------------------------Sam Lombard-Hobson made the navy his career. As an officer who devoted his life to the sea and to protecting his country he was both typical and extraordinary. He joined the Royal Navy in 1930 straight out of Dartmouth. This allowed him just the right amount of time for the peacetime training – and the hi-jinks – of a midshipman. Then came the war. Lombard-Hobson's first command was a remarkable one – a corvette during the battle of the Atlantic. It was under him that Nicolas Monsarrat served, later he described that unforgettable time in one of the bestselling novels of all time – The Cruel Sea. Lombard-Hobson's own memoirs of that glorious, terrible drama are vibrant and gripping. As is his account of Dunkirk and the tumultuous action in the Mediterranean after that. This is essential reading ... Read more

University of Illinois, Urbana, 1981. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition ( light dj wear ), xiii, 310 pages, illus., maps, index, bibliog. ............................................... Long, noted Civil War historian and long-time research assistant to the late Bruce Catton, reveals a neglected but fascinating chapter in American frontier, Mormon, Indian, and Civil War history. His lively portrayal of two volatile personalities—Mormon leader Brigham Young and U.S. military commander General Patrick Connor—depicts events which helped shape the "opening up of the West." While the Civil War raged in the East, the Mormons in Utah Territory zealously continued to guard their cultural identity and church practices from federal control. At the same time, however, they lobbied hard for statehood, but were continually thwarted by a series of inept or antagonistic federal authorities. Drawing upon seldom-used archival material from the Mo ... Read more

Annapolis, 1995, Naval Institute press, first US edition, hard bound w/dj, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 192 pages, VG/VG condition, illus, maps, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------- Since a simple cannon was first mounted on sailing ships and the warship was thus born, it has had but one principal resolve: to engage and destroy the enemy in action. In the early examples of sea warfare the guns were fixed and hence only by manoeuvring the ship itself could they be aimed, and so after much aligning of fleets alongside each other the power and weight of the all important first broadside was truly decisive. Despite the huge advances in gun design, mounting, loading and aiming that accompanied the evolution of the warship, this single factor in naval warfare remained relevant throughout. Even in the final warship against warship encounters in late World War two after the gun had been eclipsed by naval air power, the commander who first fired the heaviest and most accurate salvo immediat ...

THE SAMSON STRIKE

Williamson, Tony

Atheneum, New York, 1980. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 249 pages. -----------------------------------------------Out of the dark North Sea swell stretches oil platform Samson, over four hundred million dollars' worth of cold steel and concrete, capable of pumping four hundred thousand barrels of oil a day—and the imminent target of one of the most daring terrorist attacks ever. "It will be in our power to set fire to the North Sea, to create a disaster unparalleled in history. The Samson platform has more than twenty wells, each capable of pumping twenty thousand barrels of oil a day. That sea of blazing oil will spread, engulfing other oilfields, blocking shipping routes, putting a mushroom of smoke over half Europe. There would be no way to put it out. It would burn for years. . . . The governments of Western Europe would have to concede to every demand, free all our people, pay whatever price we asked." On the opposit ... Read more

London 1979, Collins, later printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition ( dj spine lightly faded, ), 4 illus, 2 maps, notes, index. Some years ago Arthur Bryant set out to reconstruct the life and times of Samuel Pepys from the vast collection of documents which this remarkable man left behind. He took over the papers of the two Pepysian scholars who had previously attempted this unfinished task, went through the whole of the unpublished Pepys manuscripts in the Bodleian Library, and used a number of previously unprinted passages from the diary. The result is a work of which Sir Harold Nicolson wrote that it `will live as among the best of English biographies'. In this first volume Sir Arthur Bryant tells the story of Pepys' early work and the stranger one of his married life. Covering the years 1633-1669, it records the Restoration of Charles II, the great plague and the fire of London, an economic crisis and a European war. Though a work of ... Read more

Blandford, London, 1989. first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 174 pages, prof. illustrated in B&W and color plates, appendices, index. --------------------------- The samurai were the military elite of old Japan, and the daimyo were the elite of the samurai. Samurai Warlords documents and describes the life of this group in rich detail for the first time. These were the samurai who succeeded first as warriors and went on to found petty kingdoms of their own, defended with armies of samurai who owed allegiance to them alone. From these original warlords grew great dynasties of daimyo, who enjoyed a symbiotic existence with the central government of the Shogun until all were swept away in the upheavals of the 1850s which gave birth to modern Japan. Stephen Turnbull enjoys a justified reputation as one of the West's most illuminating writers on Japanese history. Unlike his previous books on the samurai, this work examines separately and in depth e ... Read more

SANDCATCHER

Jackman, Stuart

New York, 1980, Atheneum, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6x9, 218 pages. ..........1944: In the heart of the Saudi Arabian desert, in that desolate section called the Empty Quarter, something is very wrong. A band of marauding Bedouins led by a renegade sheik named Abu Marak has been terrorizing the scattered Bedu tribes, descending like wolves, looting, murdering, then vanishing. Military Intelligence in Cairo is worried: such anarchy is dangerous enough, but what if it is something more—the prelude to a jihad, a holy war, instigated by the Germans against the Allies? A four-man commando unit is quickly formed to find out, codenamed Sandcatcher. Its mission: to penetrate deep into the Empty Quarter, locate Marak and bring him in for questioning. Its men: Jack Blade, group leader, at the age of twenty-three already desert-hard and used to command; Corporal "Chaff" Finch, tough, easy, dangerous, a knife worn strapped to his wrist the way ...

THE SANDS OF VALOUR

Wagner, Geoffrey

ECHOES OF WAR series. London 1986, Buchan & Enright, paper covers, reprint of 1967 edition, 5 1/4 x 8 1/4, FINE CONDITION,, 404 pages. ---------------------------- The toll exacted upon the British troops who fought in North Africa from , 1940-42 was a heavy one. This novel follows the fortunes of the 3rd Droghedas, an armoured regiment that has been in action in the desert from the beginning. As Rommel's Afrika Korps builds up, it is met again and again by such units until, under the strain of constant action, tiredness becomes weariness, weariness turns to exhaustion, every man living on his nerves and on his determination not to give up. And for too long there were no other men, no other armour, to take their place. This is a powerful and moving study of men called upon, by necessity, to do more than their simple duty, and a remarkable evocation of the mental processes that can lead men on even to suicidal heroism. In its portrayal of the fate of the hard-pressed professionals of an armo ... Read more
