THE VAAGSO RAID

Devins, Joseph H, jr

  • Quantity available: 1
Philadelphia, 1967, Chilton, VG/VG- ( slight wear to dj extremities), US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 222 pp, illus, 2 maps. 6x9, ----------------------------------------------------------------In the dark, early morning hours of Saturday, December 27, 1941, a small force of British warships escorting two camouflaged excursion steamers slipped past a German lookout station and sailed boldly into one of the great fjords of occupied Norway. Aboard the two steamers a tense group of British and Norwegian commandos rechecked their weapons and waited for the reaction of the nearby German coastal batteries. The target: Vaagao Island. Earlier thrusts by British raiding parties had deliberately avoided heavily defended sectors of the enemy coast. This was to be the first raid of the war on a fortified position, a demonstration that the offensive spirit was strong in Britain despite the Nazi conquest of the Continent and the humiliation of Dunkerque. But the consequences ... Read more

Annapolis 1987, USNI, Pr, US First edition, hardbound w/dj, 7x10, VG/VG cond, 487 pages, illus, notes, appendices, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------This ground-breaking new work represents the first serious attempt to analyze the influence of British politics and economics on the evolution of postwar naval policy in Great Britain. Thorough and well-documented, this study clearly demonstrates how cabinet-level decisions have shaped the Royal Navy, its size, capabilities, and activities. The author, Eric Grove, who taught strategic studies at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, England, for a decade, draws on recently released archival documents to detail the British government's attempts to come to terms with the financial realities of an austere postwar world in planning a future fleet. Described here for the first time, for example, is the Churchill government's highly secretive process of defense review and strategic revision, after acknowledgment th ... Read more

Alan Sutton,( Budding Books), Stroud UK., 1995. Hard Cover with dj, 7 x 10, FINE/FINE CONDITION, viii, 212 pages, prof. illustrated. -------------------------------The Battle of the Somme, which lasted from 1 July to 18 November 1916, is remembered as one of the most horrific and tragic battles of the First World War. On the first day alone nearly nineteen thousand British troops were killed – the greatest one-day loss in the history of the British Army. By November the death toll from the armies of Britain, France and Germany had risen to over a million. This book tells the stories of the fifty-one soldiers from the Commonwealth and Empire armies whose bravery on the battlefield was rewarded by the Victoria Cross, the highest military honour – men like Private Billy McFadzean, who was blown up by two grenades which he smothered in order to save the lives of his comrades, and Private `Todger' Jones, who single-handedly rounded up 102 German soldiers. Not only do we learn of th ... Read more

VC's of the First World War :THE WESTERN FRONT 1915

Batchelor, Peter & Christopher Matson

Phoenix Mill 1997, Sutton, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 224 pp, maps, illus, notes, bibliog, index. The fighting was not over by Christmas as the 1914 slogan had confidently proclaimed, and by the end of that first year of war men of the BEF found themselves trapped in the murderous stalemate of trench warfare. British troops had suffered badly in the early campaigns and by January 1915 were holding some thirty miles of trenches. General Sir John French, under pressure from the French to relieve their hard-pressed troops north of Ypres, launched an attack on a narrow frontage at Neuve Chapelle on 10 March. The main thrust of the attack was successful and broke through the German lines, but the intended rolling-up of the line from behind was not realised. This first blooding at Neuve Chapelle was to be followed that year by other, less successful, British actions from which the Germans seemed to learn lessons more quickly than the British High Command. Following N ... Read more

Phoenix Mill 1997, Sutton, ( Budding Books ) UK reprint edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 7 x 10, prof. illus, bibliog, index. -------------------------------------------------Accounts of every award of the Victoria Cross during 1914, the first year of the Great War. With the assassination in Sarajevo of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in June 1914, the tinder-dry tensions that had smouldered throughout Europe for many decades finally burst into flames. The first gunshots of war that rang out five weeks later heralded the dawn of a cataclysmic conflict that would ultimately claim millions of lives and lay waste vast tracts of land across Europe. During the opening four months of the war no fewer than forty-six soldiers from the British and Commonwealth armies were awarded the highest award for gallantry, the Victoria Cross. In a series of fascinating biographical portraits Gerald Gliddon here examines the dramatic events surrounding each individual action that led to the awa ... Read more

Phoenix Mill, 1998 , Sutton, UK first edition, FINE/FINE CONDITION, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 x 10 , 280 pages , profusely illustrated , bibliog , index. ----------------------------------------------Of all the costly campaigns fought across the Western Front during the First World War, none strikes a more chilling chord than Passchendaele. Even now, more than eighty years on, the very mention of the name is enough to conjure up apocalyptic images of desolation and misery on a quite bewildering scale - humanity drowning in a sea of mud. Passchendaele has come to serve as a symbol of the folly and futility of a war chiefly remembered for its carnage and profligate waste of human lives. It also stands as testament to the endurance and extraordinary courage displayed by men of all ranks and all nationalities. During the three and a half month long struggle, which claimed the lives of more than 60,000 British and Commonwealth servicemen, sixty-one men were adjudged to have performed deeds wort ...

London 1977, Hamish Hamilton, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/VG CONDITION ( dj is price clipped & light wear on rear dj cover ), 271 pages, end paper maps, illustrations, bibliog, index. ----------------------------------------------Operational Intelligence Centre ( O.I.C. ), 1939-1945, was the nerve centre of the Admiralty. Profiting from the experience of the famous, Room 40 OB of First World War fame, it was designed to collect, co-ordinate, analyse and disseminate information from every possible source which could throw light on the intentions and movements of German maritime forces, naval, air and mercantile. Working in close co-operation with the Government Code and Cipher School at Bletchley Park, O.I.C. laboured indefatigably, despite early disappointments and frustrations, to supply the Navy and R.A.F. with the intelligence that would enable them to defeat Raeder's and Donitz's forces. Without O.I.C. and Bletchley Park it is no exaggeration to say that Ge ... Read more

THE VICEROYS OF INDIA

Bence-Jones, Mark

St Martins Pr, New York, 1982. first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xviii, 343 pages, prof. illustrated, notes, bibliog., index. ----------------------------- In 1858, as a result of the Mutiny, the sovereignty of India passed from the East India Company to the British Crown; and the then Governor-General, Lord Canning, was given the more romantic title of Viceroy. This is a book about the Viceroys from 'Clemency' Canning to Mountbatten; about the men who held an office which, in its combination of responsibility and splendour, is without parallel in modern history. They include figures as diverse as the craggy John Lawrence and the charming and urbane Dufferin; the dynamic Mayo and the wayward Lytton; the humble, high-minded Ripon and the brilliant overbearing Curzon; the patrician Lansdowne and the self-made lawyer Reading. All are vividly portrayed against the background of their times in India; much use being made of contemporary letters — many of the ... Read more

London, 1976, Batsford, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket (price clipped), 7x10, VG/VG condition, 144 pages, 172 illustrations. The earliest pictures in this book are of sailors who had fought at Trafalgar. Included in the latest are men who were to take part in World War I. The period covered by these old photographs in fact witnessed greater and more widespread naval changes than any before or since. It is this fact which makes the pictures so valuable historically, as a graphic source, apart altogether from their obvious pictorial attractiveness. Life at Sea, Work at Sea, Training, Campaigns, The Royal Marines, Leisure, Personalities, and Uniforms are some of the themes into which the material has been divided.In an expert Introduction, Dr A. P. McGowan, Deputy Keeper of the National Maritime Museum, summarises the technological and social changes in the Royal Navy during these years. The pictures themselves and the commentaries on them have been contributed by John Fabb,

London 1992, Cassell, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, , 8 1/2 x 11, 160 pp, over 100 illus & maps. A comprehensive review of all colonial campaigns in India. The rich and exotic sub-continent of India - the jewel in Britain's Imperial Crown - fascinated Victorian England. A handful of the nineteenth century's greatest adventurers made their names and fortunes there, while many thousands at home avidly read the first-hand accounts reproduced in the pages of this book, describing the battles and gruelling campaigns which secured Britain's busy but relatively short tenure of the continent. From the conquest of Sind in 1843, when Sir Charles Napier defeated the Baluchi army and annexed the kingdom, to the Indian Mutiny of 1857-58 that outraged world opinion, Donald Featherstone has constructed a revealing account of the British Empire's most complex and fascinating period. The text is illustrated with 100 engravings, taken from maga ... Read more

London 1979, Michael Joseph, 2nd impression of English First edition of 1978, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, 256 pages, numerous illus., bibliog, index. What sort of man wins the Victoria Cross? In The Victoria Cross at Sea, a new biographical study of 124 winners from the Royal and Dominion Navies, the Fleet Air Arm, Royal Marines and Coastal Command, John Winton shows that the answer is : almost anybody. The only common factors the winners shared were extreme gallantry and. devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. Naval VCs have been won in places as far apart in time and distance as the Baltic in 1854 and Japan in 1945, in trenches from the Crimea to the Western Front, in harbours from Dar es Salaam to Zeebrugge, from the Barents to the Java Sea, from New Zealand to the North Atlantic, and from China to the Channel. They have been won in battleships and trawlers, in submarines and in aircraft, on horseback and in hand-to-hand fighting. Age and rank meant nothing. Boy Cornwell was ... Read more
