Description:
New Haven: Yale University Press, 2014. 345 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w maps, photographs, reproductions. "The Anglo-Zulu War, the most famous of Britain's late nineteenth-century campaigns of colonial conquest, was not fought in isolation. Along with the two Anglo-Pedi Wars, the Ninth Cape Frontier War and the Northern Border War, it was one in a brutal series of interconnected and overlapping wars which the British waged between 1877-1879 to crush and disarm the remaining independent black states of South Africa. For the first time, this book weaves the story of this cluster of conflicts into a single, connected whole. Deftly fusing the widely differing African and European perspectives on events, John Laband probes the fateful decisions taken by statesmen and military commanders, analyses military operations and their destructive impact on combatants and civilians alike, and explores why so many Africans chose to fight as auxiliaries and levies alongside the British instead of against… Read more

Description:
New York: Bantam, 2011. 233 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w maps. "(R)eveals why the battle happened, how it was fought, and whether, in fact, it saved Western civilization. Lacy brilliantly reconstructs the world of the fifth century B.C. leading up to the astonishing military defeat of the Persian Empire by the vastly outnumbered but determined Greek defenders. He shows how the heavily armed Persian Army was shocked, demoralized, and ultimately defeated by the relentless assault of the Athenian phalanx, which battered the Persian line in a series of brutal attacks. He reveals the fascinating aftermath of Marathon, how its fighters became the equivalent of our 'Greatest Generation', and challenges the view of many historians that Marathon ultimately proved the Greek 'Western way of war' to be the superior strategy for fighting - and winning - battles to the present day."

"With the proper schooling young Rune would be one of the greatest bards her world has ever seen. Even if only she knows it. Unfortunately, the daughter of a tavern wench at the Hungry Bear, no matter how talented, doesn't get much in the way of formal training. One night, to back up a brag she probably wouldn't have made if she weren't so mad, she went up to play her fiddle for the Ghost of Skull Hill. Everyone knows that no one who has ever gone up Skull Hill at night has come down again. Not alive, anway. But when the ghost appears Rune strikes a bargain: if the ghost tires of her playing before morning her life is his; if he is still listening when the sun glints over yonder hill she will have earned both life and a sack of silver. Let the music begin - ." 2. The Robin and the Kestrel - 373 pp, 1994, ISBN 0671876287.… Read more

London: Arms and Armour, 1983. 283 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps. "Together with the SAS, LRDG and other such specialist units, the Special Boats Squadron traces its origins back to the Mediterranean theatre of operations during the Second World War. Originally part of Laycock's 8 Commando, the SBS rapidly developed its own skills, expertise and identity, despite technically serving as part of the SAS for much of the war. After the war, these 'pirates' became a unit within the Royal Marines and served throughout the world during the 'post-imperial peace'. Their activities have, until now, rarely been revealed. While the SAS has become world-famous for anti-terrorist exploits in the full glare of publicity, the SBS role was little known until it came to prominence in the Falklands conflict. There, SBS teams operated in parallel with their SAS counterparts, probing the Argentine-held islands and feeding back essential intelligence information.… Read more

Description:
New York: Dorset, 1989. 299 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Maps. " 'The Serbs' was originally a series of lectures delivered by the renowned British historian R.G.D. Laffan. (His) lectures became so famous they were collected and published in book form. Out of print for many years, (this) is the classic book on an important and misunderstood people. Too many of us only know the Serbs as precipitators of World War I, when a Serbian nationalist assassinated Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand in 1914 causing Austria to declare war. But Serbian history is eventful and filled with intrigue. To give us one example, (the author) brings to brilliant life the Turkish war with Serbia in which the great Serbian nobility was nearly annihilated, its lands distributed to the Turkish military aristocracy and the Serbian Christian peasants treated like slaves. All through this occupation the Serbs were forbidden to possess weapons, but an unquenchable desire for freedom led to frequent insurrection. Finally… Read more

Godalming: Bramley, 1998. 214 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). B&w plates, maps/battle plans. "(A) forceful and probing analysis of the British generals' leadership. For too long, Dr John Laffin maintains, the military reputation of the generals has not been critically enough examined, and he asks how those responsible for such catastrophic defeats were able to retain their commands. Haig, whose army suffered 60,000 casualties on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, was still in command after five months more fighting and another 400,000 casualties. By the war's end the number of dead ran into millions - doggedly brave British Empire soldiers who, Dr Laffin believes, were killed, wounded or broken by commanders who were vain, egocentric or incompetent. But the generals, who blamed the dead and junior in rank, cannot be excused on the grounds that there was 'nothing else that they could do'. Een now, seventy years after that 'Great War for Civilization', this book… Read more

Abelard-Schuman, London/New York, (1967). 192 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations. "Throughout history, boys of many nations have found themselves involved in battles of the armed forces, and it is to their credit that they have come through these ordeals with courage and endurance. The author of this book was himself a soldier as a boy - and as a man - and knows too much about war to find in it anything glorious. He feels however that the boys who fought so bravely in combat deserve to have their names and exploits recorded. He has delved deeply into history and into records to uncover some astonishing stories of gallantry, skill and audacity on the part of boys up to and including the age of 18. Here are the stories of teenage winners o f the highest decorations for bravery - the Victoria Cross, the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Legion d'honneur, the Iron Cross. On sea, land and in the air, youthful heroes accomplished deeds that verge on the… Read more

Part Two studies the psychology of the American fighting man and points out the strange contrasts and contradictions in his mental and emotional make-up. Finally, the system that produces the American soldier today is closely examined - his role as the instrument of the 'Great Defender' all over the world, the scientific revolution and the attitudes of the commanding generals."

New York: Barnes & Noble, 1995. 238 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). B&w illustrations. "(T)races the background and influences that shaped the character of the German soldier from the time of Frederick the Great to the end of the Second World War. Laffin provides an illuminating account of the attitude of the individual soldier to the increasing militarism of the years before the First World War. Included here are extracts from letters written by young German soldiers who, in spite of the mud and carnage, regarded the war as a sacred mission that would bring honor and glory to their country. After Germany's defeat the Treaty of Versailles came as a blow to German pride and helped pave the way to the Second World War. Psychology now played a role in the German soldier's training, and emphasis was given to individual initiative - a concept wholly contrary to the old training that required strict obedience. But such preparation was no match for the Russian winter of 1942, and Laffin's… Read more

London: Chancellor, 2000. 194 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, reproductions. "During the Second World War a number of daring military actions were carried out by Allied and Axis land, sea and air forces against targets carefully selected for their strategic or propaganda values. These raids were as individual in character as the men who carried them out and equally unique in their objectives. (The author) relates more than twenty such operations mounted by British, German, American, Australian, Italian and Canadian forces. Raiding appealed to British military men's psyche - and on the whole, they were good at it. Therefore, 'Raiders' emphasizes attacks mounted by the British because they were involved in more theatres of war than any other combatant. (Laffin) examines the qualities of successful raiders, as well as their selection and training, before looking in detail at individual missions. The exploits recorded here range from a British commando strike against… Read more

Description:
Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1984. 224 pp, 11 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with colour reproductions. "James Wilson Morrice is one of the twentieth century's most talented and lyrical painters. Whether depicting a Quebec village in winter, a Paris cafe, or a North African market place, Morrice's vibrant colours and perfectly balanced compositions capture his subjects in a suspended timelessness. The story of (his) life is no less colourful than his paintings. The young James's passion for art took him in 1890, at the age of twenty-five, from his wealthy Montreal background to Paris. It was here, among other artists such as Matisse, and writers such as Somerset Maugham and Arnold Bennett, that he felt a true kinship.
