Fallbrook, 1982, Aero, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 1/2 x 10, VG/VG- condition ( dj shows light edge wear ), 222 pages, glossy page stock, prof. illustrated, index. ---------------------------------------------Gathering intelligence remains one of the airplane's most significant and fascinating functions. In World War I, the first military use of aircraft was in gathering information behind enemy lines on troop dispositions and in serving as forward artillery observation posts. More than six decades later the intelligence-gathering function of the airplane remained essentially the same but the technique had undergone dramatic sophistication. ' In the early 1960s technicians took the pilot out of the plane's cockpit, put him on the ground at an electronic black box and had him `fly' spy missions by remotely controlling a pilotless jet airplane. Because of this advanced technique, formerly dangerous intelligence-gathering flights in hostile… Read more

Gordon Wallace joined the Fleet Air Arm in 1940 and trained as an observer. In Carrier Observer he recalls this period and gives the reader a fascinating insight into the life of a navigator who has the responsibility of finding his way back to a carrier in the middle of an ocean in all weathers. The author saw action in Ceylon, Malta and Tunisia. Gordon Wallace has studied in some detail what has been described as one of 'the most dangerous moments of the war' when there was a real threat that the Eastern Fleet would be destroyed by the Japanese. His carefully reasoned conclusions make interesting reading. He was one of the few survivors of the daylight raid on an Axis airfield in Tunisia for which Wing Commander Malcolm was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross after his nine aircraft took on… Read more

An overall account of the operations of Gen. George Patton's U.S. Third Army in France & Germany, 1944-45. Dwight Eisenhower once said of General George Patton, "He was one of those men born to be a soldier . . . whose gallantry and dramatic personality inspired all he commanded to deeds of great valor." In this account of Patton and his Third Army, Wallace places Patton within the context of the army's operations and day-to-day movements as it roared through France, Luxembourg, and Germany. Wallace, Patton's former assistant chief of staff, draws his facts from stenographic records of daily staff meetings, and provides insights and details unavailable to other historians.

When eighteen-year-old German stonemason Jakob Walter was conscripted into the Grand Army of Napoleon, he had no idea of the trials that lay ahead. The long, grueling marches in Prussia and Poland sacrificed countless men to Bonaparte's grand designs. And the disastrous Russian campaign tested human endurance on an epic scale. Demoralized by defeat in a war few supported or understood, deprived of ammunition and leadership, driven past reason by starvation and bitter cold, men often turned on one another, killing fellow soldiers for bread or an able… Read more

Excerpts from the travel diary of the author's father, Paul M. Warburg, who visited Asia in 1893, enliven the age of nineteenth-century imperialism, while the author's own recent trip to the Orient with a third generation of Warburgs provides first-hand observation of the vastly changed contemporary scene. .............................................

This is the story of World War II, as seen from Germany's Supreme Headquarters by General Walter Warlimont, who was at the center of power during one of history's most shattering periods. It is the story of men whom the fates tempted and then destroyed. It is doubtful that ever before in a great war had the supreme headquarters of a major participant been such a microcosm of that country's leadership and society. The German Armed Forces Supreme Headquarters during World War II was a stage of truly Wagnerian dimensions, with Hitler the all-powerful, totally evil, almost godlike arbiter of life and death over untold millions of combatants and noncombatants.

Scholars have speculated hitherto that she was executed as the result of a factional conspiracy masterminded by Henry's minister Thomas Cromwell, a conclusion that may be reached only by accepting uncritically the distorted evidence of hostile sixteenth-century writers. -----------------------------------------Professor Warnicke treats this evidence as prejudiced testimony, and develops a more reliable picture of Anne by analyzing her life within the framework of social and religious values, including family loyalty and… Read more

England was still at peace; the weather was perfect; the boat was brand-new and had been checked from stem to stern before leaving the shipyard. There wasn't a reason anything should go wrong. At 2 o'clock, Thetis commenced diving. The dive began slowly — but ended with startling suddenness. At 11 o'clock, the B.B.C. carried an alarming message .. .

Malvern: Cressrelles. 1980 . First UK edition. 194 pages, illus., maps, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, FINE/FINE CONDITION ( dj is price clipped), / .................................................. Sinking the battleship HMS Royal Oak in the Royal Navy's home anchorage, with the loss of more than 800 of her crew, was Germany's first shattering blow against Britain in the 1939-45 war. Within six weeks the long-standing German dream of breaching the defences of Scapa Flow had been achieved. Instantly, stories about sabotage were voiced: anything was preferable to accepting that a U-boat had penetrated the supposedly impregnable Home Fleet base. Even today, there are Royal Oak survivors who believe that this is the true explanation of the loss of their ship. Germany claimed the sinking for the submarine U-47, commanded by Lt. Gunther Prien. Prien and his crew became instant folk heroes, lauded, interviewed and exploited to extract the maximum glory from their deed.… Read more
