No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. 134 pages. In this highly readable and lavishly illustrated book, the author draws on exclusive interviews and a unique collection of memorabilia not only to provide a vivid picture of Britain on the eve of expected invasion but also to tell the full story of a little known and highly secret aspect of Britain's defensive armoury - the Auxiliary forces. When the Nazi juggernaut thundered to the Channel Ports in May 1940, Britons had little doubt that there would be a landing on the South Coast of England. Arthur Ward evokes the tension of these months when Britain set about rapid re-organisation of its army in preparation for German invasion, including the training of specialists and highly secret guerrilla forces. Inspired as much by the adventurous, imaginative flair of Peter Fleming and the exploits of T. E. Lawrence as by the gritty determination and organisational genius of Colin Gubbins, later to hea SOE, the auxiliary units were formed from a unique body of imperturbable and self-confident men who would be capable of acting with ruthless efficiency in the face of a merciless foe. Brimming with information and extraordinary detail and accompanied by a feast of stunning illustrations many of them in colour, this book provides a fascinating new insight into a remarkable moment in history.

ISBN: 029781320X. First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. This is an account of the end of the Soviet empire.

This reordering of the world, unimaginable to most people in the West, occurred remarkably peacefully. David Pryce-Jones travelled throughout the former empire to ask the major political personalities for their opinions and reactions as to why this happened. He asked why Gorbachev and the leadership didn't resort to armed violence in classic Soviet style; how much was accidental, how much planned; and how much will never be known about the workings of the impenetrable structure which held together the Soviet bloc. Party leaders, decision-makers and first secretaries of the Soviet republics and satellites each give their version of events, often speaking frankly about Gorbachev, his motivations and actions.

Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. The discovery of Noah's Ark is one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century, solving a mystery that has puzzled scientists for many centuries. The story of the clues which led to its detection - not on Mount Ararat, as had been thought, but on Mount Mahser Dagi (the Doomsday Mountain) some 17 miles to the south - is astonishing, and the material uncovered reveals much about life in the Middle East thousands of years BC. David Fasold headed one of the last teams to be allowed excavation rights in Turkey, and he dedicated years of his life and considerable sums of his own money to searching for the Ark. This book recounts the story of his quest and the eventual realization that he had succeeded when the dimensions of his find matched up exactly to those given in the Book of Genesis. Drilling samples subsequently revealed that the boat had not been made of wood, as was commonly supposed, but of reed and a kind of cement. Fasold's site has now been sealed off and officially declared the landing place of Noah's Ark by the Turkish Government. Nice and clean internally and externally.

The patriotic widow who loses all her sons is a part of Public Opinion; so is the Conscientious Objector; so is the profiteer.

He considered his job as an exercise in love and loyalty, but what was the real story behind the first blind date with 24-year-old Margaret Roberts, the early electioneering and the truama of the Falklands War? What was the truth about the bombing at the Grand Hotel, Brighton, and the inside story of the leadership contest that finally forced the Thatchers from Downing Street? Denis Thatcher was his wife's eyes and ears to the world, yet he remains a deeply private man. Only his daughter, Carol, who shared these extraordinary years at No.10, can reveal the true picture of this absorbing character and, in telling his story, offer a fascinating perspective on the Thatcher years as seen from the inside.

[003499] Lamb, Richard. Mussolini and the British. London, United Kingdom: John Murray Publishers, Limited, 1998. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Very Good / Very Good. ISBN: 0719555922. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. Besides throwing favourable light on the dictator himself, this account of Mussolini's relations with Britain shows that Italy was ready to become Britain's ally until Britain felt obliged to take a lead in economic sanctions against Italy for its invasion of Abyssinia in 1935. Mussolini despised Hitler and his anti-Semitism, yet felt surprised and antagonized by Britain's mobilization of the League of Nations over the Abyssinian affair. Thus, this book shows, Britain missed the opportunity to bring the Italians onto the Allied side, as it did again when Italy attempted to make a separate peace in 1943.

[003500] Stafford, David. Secret Agent: The True Story of the Special Operations Executive. London, United Kingdom: BBC Books, 2000. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Very Good / Very Good. ISBN: 0563537345. Clipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. Published to coincide with the accompanying BBC television series, this is the fascinating, hair-raising, sometimes hilarious and sometimes tragic account of the brave men and women who went behind the lines in Nazi-occupied territory, with a mission to, in Churchill's words, 'set Europe ablaze'. The scale of their operations was always limited by lack of funds, military hardware, and, most unbelievably of all, by the continual sniping that the SOE suffered from jealous rival special forces, and the sneering suits in Whitehall. Despite such difficulties, however, their range of operations was impressive: from Gorgopotamos in Greece to Bergen in Norway they did indeed do their very best to set Europe ablaze, with what few resources they had, and faced certain torture and death if they were caught. Their greatest impact was in the Balkans, supporting Tito and his partisans against the Germans, but here, as ever in the Balkans, things were always complicated by ethnic rivalries and atrocious massacres of civilians. In the end, though, the greatest value of the SOE was to boost public morale back home, and it did that superbly. David Stafford's account is excellent, the only reservation being that it leaves one wanting more detail and more characterisation about specific missions. One doesn't often get a sense of being there on the front line but, as an introduction to the subject, this is very satisfactory.

ISBN: 0300072023. First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. War and the World: Military Power and the Fate of Continents, 1450-2000. An attempt to write a global history of warfare in the modern era. Jeremy Black, here presents a wide-ranging account of the nature, purpose and experience of war over the last half millennium. Investigating both land and sea warfare, Black examines weaponry, tactics, strategy and resources as well as the political, social and cultural impact of conflict. He takes issue with established interpretations, not least those that emphasize technology, and directly challenges the view that European military and naval forces were dominant throughout the period. European mastery at sea did not inevitably translate into equivalent success on land, he argues, and indeed many non-European military systems were formidable in their own right. Black investigates the regional political military inpact of, for example, Babur and the Mughals in 16th-century India and the Manchu conquest of China in the following century. The book argues that, in the 18th century - the focal point of Europe's military revolution - the international military balance shifted decisively. Economic growth and maritime exploration turned navies into aggressively effective instruments of power and fuelled the obsession for territorial acquisition which dominated the great powers throughout the 19th century. Linking debates on early modern history with those of more recent centuries, War and the World should be reading for students of global history and constitutes a re-examination of the role of war in the progress of nations.

Since their unexplained appearance in Europe over nine centuries ago, the Gypsies have doggedly refused to fall in with conventional settled life. From the Balkans they gradually spread over the entire continent. When, in the 15th century, they knocked at the gates of Western Europe in the guise of pilgrims, they aroused intense curiosity as well as suspicion, and theories proliferated about their provenance. They remain the people whose culture and customs are beset with misunderstanding, and to cling to their distinct identity in the teeth of persistent rejection and pressure to conform.

Nisbet, Robert: Roosevelt and Stalin - The Failed Courtship and withal It is unlikely that history holds a stranger, more improbable, and withal consequential relationship than that between President Roosevelt and Marshal Stalin in WWII. It was more of a Courtship than a relationship in the ordinary sense; a Courtship initiated by the president and regarded warily by the Marshal throughout, almost as though he could scarcely credit what was before his eyes.

A military career that began under David Niven (Term under-Officer at Sandhurst) and ended with several years close association with Field Marshal Montgomery can hardly have lacked variety. General Belchem's account combines the gaiety of the first with the professionalism of the second. Few soldiers have seen more both of battle and of the direction of battle. Although we left the army as by far its youngest general he had packed in more experience than would be ordinarily possible in the lifetimes of a dozen officers. His account of the campaigns is notably vivid and interesting, not least in his record of the Ardennes battle. Nice and clean internally and externally.

[003594] Roskill, S.W.. Navy at War, The. Ware, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom: Wordsworth Editions Ltd, 1998. First Thus. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Soft Cover. Fine ISBN: 1853266973. This book not only looks into the battles fought in the Second World War by the Royal Navy (RN) but, also takes a look into how factors including politics affected Naval policy. First written in 1960, the author, Stephen Roskill has tried to take an unbiased approach. Beginning with the state of the RN after the First World War, the narrative rapidly dives into the battles in the North Atlantic, the route of the Allied navies in the Pacific, the Mediterranian and Arctic theatres and the see-saw nature of the war. The major battles are all well covered with maps giving the reader a sense of how the battle and campaigns progressed. However, it is a history of the RN as a whole and although the admirals in-charge are well covered, the actions of the individual sailors are outside the scope of this book. This book spans some 450 pages and is definately a good read for anyone interested in the RN or World War 2. The appendix at the end is chillingly surgical. The Royal Navy lost 50,758 men, the WRNS 102 and the Merchant Navy 30,248. Nice and clean internally and externally.

In December 1950 General Matthew B. Ridgway replaced General Walton Walker as commander of the Eighth Army, and in April 1951 he succeeded Douglas MacArthur as supreme commander of the United Nations forces in Korea and supreme commander of the United States Far East Command. In this spirited book, General Ridgway describes how he took a dispirited army and rebuilt it in a few short months, leading it into battle against the Chinese and North Korean forces, forcing them back over the 38th parallel and victory. It is a book that takes a close look at MacArthur, his failings and brilliance, and a hard look at the idea of limited war. Infused with a humane leaders appreciation for the ordinary fighting soldier, Ridgways history also teaches important lessons about Vietnam and any future conflict. Above all, he emphasizes: We should not involve ourselves in escalating warfare without a specific and attainable goal. Nice and clean internally and externally.

The book Guerilla Strategies by Gerard Chaliand is an antholgy of various Guerilla movements and some counter insurgencey operations. Though not indepth in any one area it does serve as a fair basis for additional research to be done. It also provides a good bibliography for easier study of all the various operations in his book.

Sixty years after the famous evacuation of British forces from Dunkirk, it is easy to forget just how close Adolf Hitler's German forces came to invading and vanquishing Britain in the early summer of 1940. As the German "sickle-cut" (Sichelschnitt) manoeuvre swept south east through Holland, Belgium and northern France, and Norway fell to the German navy, Britain remained unprepared, isolated and increasingly anxious. John Lukacs vividly and dramatically retells this key episode of the Second World War by focusing on the two principal antagonists. Hitler, personally directing operations from the Belgian border, came almost face-to-face with Churchill, the new and controversial British prime minister. Lukacs convincingly shows that the fight was not just fought at sea and on land, but also in the mind. Twice the twitchy Hitler held British destiny in his hand--at Dunkirk in May, and on the eve of launching the invasion operation "sea-lion" in mid-July. Twice he drew back, his nerve and strategy failing him. By contrast, from a much weaker position, Churchill, for all his moodiness, stood calm--coaxing the Americans, bolstering the French and insisting above all that Britain would not make a dishonourable peace. In the battle of wit and words, as The Duel brilliantly shows, Churchill outmastered his rival. Nice and clean internally and externally. Nice and clean internally and externally.

[003612] Kolko, Gabriel. Century of War: Politics, Conflict and Society Since 1914. New York, NY, U.S.A.: New Press,The,U.S., 1995. First Thus. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Soft Cover. Very Good+ ISBN: 1565841921. This volume is a history of the way in which war has transformed modern society and a political analysis of the ways in which wars have been waged. Professor Kolko takes a long view of the 20th century, focusing on World Wars I and II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, to show the degree to which leaders and generals have consistently misunderstood the battles on which they embarked. Kolko argues that time after time, generals have underestimated the implications of new military technology and have begun wars they were incapable of managing or ending. Since World War I, this technology has led to conflicts being more protracted and more destructive to civilian life and property than even the most pessimistic had predicted. As the generals have been slow to realize, war has become less a matter of strategy than a contest between differing social and economic systems. "Century of War" provides a synthesis of the effects of war on civilian populations and the political results of these traumatizing experiences. Kolko also provides a revisionist view of the post-World War II conflicts, from the Phillipine uprising to the Greek Civil wars. The book gives a reassessment of the nature of the communist parties that were born in opposition to World War I but changed drastically as the soviet governments were established.

Soft Cover. Fine ISBN: 0195133293. The end of the Cold War, augues momentous changes within armed forces in Western societies. Clarification of these changes is the purpose of The Postmodern Military. The armed forces of the United States and those of other Western developed democracies are moving toward a postmodern format. The modern military that fully emerged in the nineteenth century was associated with the rise of the nation-state, war oriented in mission, a conscripted mass army, masculine in makeup and ethos, and sharply differentiated in structure and culture from civilian society. The postmodern military, by contrast, undergoes a loosening of the ties with the nation-state, becomes multipurpose in mission, moves toward a smaller volunteer force, is increasingly androgynous in makeup and ethos, and has greater permeability with civilian society. The Postmodern Military assesses contemporary civil-military trends by first looking at specific areas in the U.S. military. Then, an international team of leading military sociologists assesses the postmodern thesis in twelve countries (Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, and the UK). This book provides the student and defense professional with a foundation on which to base organizational and personal policies. It also has much to tell the general reader about what life is really like in today's military and how it is both the same and different around the world. Nice and clean internally and externally.

Silver lettering to spine. Illustrated. No one who has read of Arnhem can have failed to have been inspired by gallantry of the 2nd Parachute Regiment, which held the north end of the key road bridge over the Rhine not for 24 hours for which it was equipped, but for 3 days and 4 nights. Commanded by the then Lt-Col Frost, they beat off repeated armoured and infantry assaults by far greater numbers, until forced out of the ruined and burning positions by losses, lack of ammunition, and the failure of the whole Arnhem operation. Their sacrifice stands as one of the most heroic defences of all time. General Frost's story is, in effect, that of the battalion. His tale starts with the Iraq Levies and goes on the major airborne operations in which he took part - Bruneval, Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, Arnhem - and continues with his experiences as a prisoner and the reconstruction of the battalion after the German surrender. Though written with modesty and humour, the book is shot through with the fire and determination of the fighting solider, and throws important new light on many controversies, not only those of Arnhem.

Through Hitler's great trust in him and Speer's own genius for organisation he became, effectively from 1942 overlord of the entire war economy, making him the second most powerful man in the Third Reich. Sentenced to twenty years imprisonment in Spandau Prison at the Nuremberg Trails, Speer attempted to progress from moral extinction to moral self-education.

Truman's decisions - for all his private indiscretions and occasional muddles - were firm and level-headed, guiding the Western world through the many dangers of the unstable post-war years.

No marks or inscriptions. Faded spine. "What happens to everybody - workers, teachers, farmers, artists, shopkeepers, clergymen - when Communists seize control of a Western democracy like Czechoslovakia. This revealing book - the work of a veteran foreign correspondent who covered Communist Czechoslovakia for his paper the New York Times - is at once the inside story of how the Communists took over that country, and of what could happen to any Western democracy if and when the Communist Party seized power. Mr. Schmidt came to Prague in April 1949. He left in May the following year, just one jump ahead of the Czech secret police, who had no use for a foreign correspondent devoted to digging up the facts and reporting them to his paper. And there are the headline stories, and the stories behind the headlines: the trial of William Oatis, the death of Jan Masaryk, the purging of Rudolph Slansky, the fate of Noel Field and others, the escape of Casy Jones Konvalinka. The death of a country.". £12.00

[003694] Fishlock, Trevor. India File. London: John Murray , 1983. First Edition / First Impression. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hard Cover. Fine / Near Fine. ISBN: 0719540720. Clipped dustwrapper. No marks or inscriptions. Gold lettering to spine. Illustrated. It isn't easy capturing a country of over a billion people in a hundred and eighty five pages. In India File, Trevor Fishlock, however, comes very close. His novel, funny and shocking in its honesty, is a wonderful introduction to India. In a style similar to Bill Bryson and a tone similar to Jamaica Kincaid, his anecdotes and descriptions bring the vast nation alive. While this book doesn't work well as a guide to India (as a result of its somewhat random organization and its lack of travel details), it makes for a great prep book before a trip to the subcontinent or just an interesting read. There are parts of the novel that are not for the faint of heart. This is non-fiction at its most graphic as Fishlock describes the Indian's intolerance for crime through the stories of common people dropping large stones on people's kneecaps to break them or wardens pok ing prisoner's eyes out with bicycle spokes. On the other hand, these vivid, if violent details, add a level of realism and balance to the book not often found in your average travel guide. As well, despite its very reasonable length, India File reaches some depth in describing India's culture and its people's customs. In this slow moving country even a book originally published in 1987 is relevant and current enough to be useful. This is especially true when one considers that most of its subject matter hasn't substantially changed in hundreds of years. Fishlock follows everything from fishermen's stories to mass marriage ceremonies to the ever-present danger of an overflowing bus falling on you. His humour, sometimes subtle and sometimes blatant, is omnipresent, lightening up what can at times be an either dreary or overwhelming subject matter. Because Fishlock shows us India instead of telling it to us, we are inclined to believe him, almost unquestioningly. Instead of depicting India from the tourist's point of view, Fishlock shows us India from the inside out. He describes it as a foreigner who is at home in India, a non-native untouchable who is in touch with India's grandeur and deformity. In his bluntness Fishlock creates a feeling of the every day in his writing. That is to say, instead of describing a train packed full of people (both inside and on top) crashing into a river and everyone on board dying as a unique and shocking experience he tells of how it's the kind of thing that happens all the time in India. This feeling of everything being common amplifies the feeling of hearing about India from someone who really knows the country as well as emphasise the country's massive scale. In a country this big,, even the most random and bizarre occurrences are repeated. There is a strong focus throughout Fishlock's novel on religion, language and the Hindu caste system. This focus is paralleled in Indian society and creates a framework in which everyone leads their lives. From the daily work of the untouchables to the different way a priest treats the Brahmins during a mass marriage (that includes members of all of the castes) we see the interaction of religion and class at every level. As a novel, as a story, as a summary of India itself, this book excels. While not a light read, it is never boring and is never off topic. Nice and clean internally and externally. £12.00
