Winston Churchill described the loss of Singapore as the greatest disaster ever to befall British arms; yet, unlike Pearl Harbor, it never became the subject of an offocial government enquiry.

The efficiency of both British and Japanese intelligence services are compared, and the impact on the campaign of relations with Thailand is examined. Allen also deals with the nemesis that awaited Force Z - HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales - in the waters of the South China Sea, leaving Malaya open to Japanese invasion.

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.

They ruled it for another 100, departing in 1947, leaving behind the independent states of Pakistan and India. Both nations owed much to Britain: British rule taught Indians to see themselves as Indians, and its benefits included railways, roads, canals, schools, universities, hospitals, law and a universal language. None of this, however was planned. A series of emergencies in the 18th century transformed the East India Company into the most formidable war machine in Asia, and conquest gathered its own momentum.

First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. The Sunken Kingdom: The Atlantis Mystery Solved. This work suggests a solution to a mystery which has baffled scholars for nearly 2400 years - since Plato first wrote about Atlantis. It reviews previous theories and shows why they will not work. Atlantis could not have been in the Atlantic; nor was it the volcanic island of Santorini near Crete, as currently held. Through an analysis of the sources available to Plato, it becomes clear that the story of Atlantis came from western Turkey, where about 3400 years ago, a major Bronze Age city was devastated by an earthquake and submerged beneath a lake. The new theory also provides an explanation of how and why this event grew into the story of a "lost continent". Nice and clean internally and externally.

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. The coup of August 1991 brought an end not only to Gorbachev's political career, but to the entire Soviet Union: communism imploded, the Berlin Wall had been dismantled, Germany reunified, and several European states regained their independence. 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.

[003261] Thatcher, Margaret. The Downing Street Years [SIGNED]. London: Harper Collins, 1993. Limited. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Cloth. Signed by Author. As New / As New. ISBN: 0002553554. First edition Signed Deluxe Box Set. Hand signed by Margaret Thatcher on the title page. Fully illustrated throughout with many pages of high quality glossy colour and black and white photographs. No prime minister of modern times has sought to change Britain and its place in the world as radically as Margaret Thatcher. Her government was, she says, about the application of a philosophy, not the implementation of an administrative programme. She sets out here with characteristic forcefulness and conviction the reasons for her beliefs and how she sought to put them into action. She gives riveting accounts of the great and critical moments of her premiership – the Falklands War, the Miner's strike, the Brighton bomb, the Westland Affair and her three election victories. Her judgements of other world statesman and her Cabinet colleagues are often brutally frank, her criticism devastating. The book ends with an account of her last days in power which as gripping as anything in thriller fiction. "Some things n life are priceless. So are Margaret Thatcher's guts. They have left their mark on the world. So will The Downing Street Years". Only opened to photograph. Mint unread condition.

Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. 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.
