George H. Stein examines in detail the structure and organization of the Waffen SS and describes the rigid personnel selection and intensive physical, military, and ideological training that helped to create the tough and dedicated cadre around which the larger force of the later war years was built.

Washington 1988, GPO, reprint of 1952 edition, hard bound in green cloth. 7 x 10, VG condition, ( several light wear spots on cover ), ix, 473 pages, hundreds of photos, index. In the narrative volumes of the United States Army in World War II series, it is possible to include only a limited number of the thousands of pictures taken by photographers of the U.S. armed forces. The Pictorial Record, a subseries of three volumes, has therefore been compiled to show in greater detail the conditions under which the combat forces lived, the methods by which they were trained, the weapons they and their opponents used, the terrain over which they fought, and the support they received from the technical branches of the U. S. Army, the U. S. Army Air Forces, and the U.S. Navy. This volume is arranged in sections that follow the course of the war chronologically; the written text has been kept to a minimum, each section having a brief introduction recounting the major events covered therein.

New York, 1963, Knopf, First US edition in dj, VG/VG condition, ( dj price clipped), xxxvii, 436 pages, illus, bibliog, index. Based on the recollections of Commander C.R. Thompson, CMG, OBE, RN - Personal Assistant to the Prime Minister, 1940-45. IN NEARLY every photograph taken of Winston Churchill during the Second World War there appears, never far from the Prime Minister, a shortish man in the uniform of a naval commander. To this day his identity is known to few, yet he was Churchill's constant companion from the very first days in the Admiralty in 1939 to the moment when he finally left Downing Street in 1945. Spending the whole war at the Prime Minister's side, living with him at No. 10 and Chequers, organizing all his journeys by land, sea, and air, and accompanying him everywhere he went, "Tommy" Thompson had perhaps a closer view of decisive events and the men who played a leading part in them than any other observer. When Sir Winston encouraged Tommy to tell his ... Read more

Oxford University Press, 1994. Hardcover w/ dj, first edition, 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, Fine/Fine condition, . xiv, 390 pages, notes, bibliog., index. -----------------------------When Hitler came to power in 1933 he had two aims for the economy: a rapid recovery from the depths of the Great Slump and the creation of a vast economic foundation for Germany's renewed bid for world power. These eleven essays explore the tension between Hitler's vision of an armed economy and the reality of German economic and social life. Richard Overy argues that the German economy was much less crisis-ridden in 1939 than its enemies supposed, and that Hitler, far from limiting his war effort, tried to mobilize the economy for "total war" from 1939 onwards. Only the poor organization of the Nazi state and the interference of the military prevented higher levels of military output. Many of these essays challenge accepted views of the Third Reich. In his introduction Richard Overy reflects on the issues the ess ... Read more

St. Paul (MN), Pogo Press, 1998., US first paper edition, 6 x 9, VG cond.,, xxii, 155 pages, illustrated. ----------------------------------------- During World War I, soldiers in the American Expeditionary Force rarely fought in the newly developed tank, and those who did manned British and French tanks since American models did not become available until after the war. Harris joined the Tank Corps because it was considered the elite unit of the ground forces and had a certain amount of romance connected with it. Initially assigned as a driving instructor, he later saw action at the St. Mihiel salient and on the Meuse-Argonne front. -----------------------------------This book, which offers an extensive preface, summarizing Harris's life before, during, and after the war, along with some penetrating insights into his character, collects 46 letters he wrote home while in service. As they show, Harris saw war as a game not unlike the football games he played in his youth. Although he spen ... Read more

WAR AT SEA 1914-45

Ireland, Bernard

Cassell, London, 2002. UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 x 11, VG/VG CONDITION, 224 pages, glossy page stock, massively illustrated in B&W and color. -----------------------------------The period between the two largest and most destructive wars in history saw a revolution at sea. In 1914 international naval power was measured in dreadnought battleships, the currency of imperial power. Yet within a generation the mighty battleships were rendered redundant, and submarines and aircraft dominated the seas. Battles began to take place at extreme ranges, with rival fleets not always being even in sight of one another. Amphibious warfare became crucial, both for the liberation of German-occupied Europe and to drive back the Japanese from their island conquests. Technological advances transformed the war in the Pacific. New weapons made old tactics much more effective. Combining aircraft and submarine with blockade, convoy and the attack of merchant ships was a fundamental shift in th ... Read more

Routledge, 2002, NY, revised & updated, paper covers, 6 x 9, VG- condition, (crease on edge of rear cover, and several page corners creased ), x, 320 pages, map, index. ------------------------------------------ What will the post-Taliban government of Afghanistan look like? How will the war in Afghanistan affect the already unstable politics of Central Asia? In War at the Top of the World, veteran foreign correspondent Eric Margolis presents a revelatory history of the complicated and volatile conflicts that have entangled Afghanistan, Pakistan, the United States, the Soviet Union, and many others. By 1999, Pakistan had proven they have medium-range nuclear weapons, and now the threat that their government could be taken over by a radical Islamic fundamentalist faction is stronger than ever. In fact, Osama bin Laden has already claimed to have a nuclear weapon. How could this have happened? Margolis plays witness to the escalating conflicts of the past decade, tracing disputes over Afgh ... Read more

Athens, 1981, Univ of Georgia, US first U edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, v, 206, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. -----------------------------------------------------"Even if it were no more than a fiction, these fancies of war as a noble game of honour and virtue have still played an important part in developing civilization, for it is from them that the idea of chivalry sprang and hence, ultimately, of international law," wrote the noted medieval historian Johan Huizinga. This book examines some of the ways in which these conceptions were expressed, whether in theory or practice, in the thick of battle or in the political behavior of the nobility. It is not a study of the military as an institution. Its concern is with the relationship between ideas and behavior among an elite for whom war was not only a profession but a justification for their social position and privileges. The author has consulted such sources as eye-witness accounts of batt ... Read more

Croom Helm, London, 1976. first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, VG/VG condition, v, 136 pages, notes. ............................. This book explores the relationship between European society and the military institutions it fostered from 1815-1918. In the period from the fall of Napoleonic imperialism to the outbreak of the First World War armies and navies grew in complexity, cost and size. The first half of this book investigates these institutions from within, and looks at some of the factors which held them together in an increasingly difficult and hostile world, at their self-image, and at the pressures upon them from society at large. ................................ As the role of military institutions within society increased in importance, analysts began to look for the effects which this inte rpenetration had on society. Part 2 is concerned with the effects of this growing dominance of society by its defenders. By the end of period covered by this boo ... Read more

New York 1973, Holt Rinehart, US first edition, hard bound w/dj, 6 1/2 x 9, VG/VG condition, viii, 472 pages, 2 maps, drawings, notes, bibliog, index. ------------------------------------------------At 5:40 A.M., September 1, 1939, Hitler announced his invasion of Poland. During the next seventy-two hours, while the world watched in terrified awe, while the French and British civilian and military leaders (Poland's sworn allies) equivocated, and while a neutral United States stoutly maintained her neutrality, Germany's armored columns and her Luftwaffe gained the momentum which enabled them to conclusively roll over the antiquated Polish cavalry and ground forces while driving the Polish air force from the skies. By September 28 all of Poland was theirs-abetted by a Russian invasion from the east on September 17. This was the period of the phony war, when no bombs were dropped on German soil (after all, a British Secretary of State for Air protested, it was private property), when F ... Read more
