"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 an pilotless jet airplane. Because of this advanced technique, formerly dangerous intelligence-gathering flights in hostile areas were possible without risking the lives of pilots or the loss of extremely costly manned aircraft. This then is the story of 'Lightning Bugs' and other Ryan reconnaissance drones and the contributions they made in combat in Southeast Asia."

Description:
London: Macmillan, London, 1978., 1978. 187 pp, 8vo (8 1/8" H). *Ex-library.* "The story of one man's journey through a war - including the funny bits, frightening bits and idiotic bits. That is how John Wainwright approaches the subject of how he came to fly - and to survive - no less than seventy-two night bombing raids in Lancasters in the second world war. It was theoretically seventy-three raids - but he explains the circumstances that made the number officially even greater than it really was. On all these missions he flew as Rear-Gunner. As an introduction to this daunting experience he tells of his short adult working life in 'civvy street' before the Air Force claimed him. But the book is about flying, the crew he flew with, some individual raids, perhaps above all his direct and down-to-earth recollections of 'what it was like'. John Wainwright does not deal in heroics, 'stiff upper lips', the tradition of much recent writing about the war. Factual… Read more

Description:
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: Fifth House, 1995. 294 pp, 10" H. B&w photographs, maps. "Between 1915 and 1946, some ten thousand men were put to work in western Canada's national parks. They were the country's unwanted - unskilled foreign workers, the jobless and the homeless, conscientious objectors, perceived enemies of the state, and prisoners of war. These men had committed no crimes, but because of war or depression, they were seen as a possible threat to public order and a potential source of civil unrest. The Canadian government consequently sent them to the parks - world-renowned places such as Banff, Jasper, and Yoho - where they were held under duress in isolated work camps for months, sometimes years. (This) is the first comprehensive, illustrated history of the national park labour camp story, examining where and when the various groups were interned and how they were treated and employed. It also describes their significant contributions to the built environment of the… Read more

"With the British air defence system supreme by day, the Luftwaffe turned to concentrate their attention towards nocturnal bombing missions on major cities and ports. For this purpose they perfected the technique to become known as 'pathfinding' - the illumination of the target area by a special force as a forerunner to an intense bombing raid. This vital role was to be played by Germany's best known bomber unit, Kampfgruppe 100. Within a detailed and full history of this unit from 1939 until 1941, comes a fascinating account of its operations over Britain, as night after night German bombers went about the systematic destruction of Britain's major cities."

Newton Abbot: Readers Union, Newton Abbot, 1974. 321 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w photographs, maps. "The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5 was a European conflict fought by proxy in Korea, Manchuria and the South China Sea. Its origins lay in a Europe stalemated by military alliances. The Trans-Siberian Railway gave the traditional rivalry between Russia and Britain yet another dimension. Russia now had access to the Pacific; her imperial presence in Asia threatened established British interests in the Far East. When China leased the ice-free Port Arthur to Russian warships the two empires seemed set on a collision course. Reluctant to commit herself to so distant a theatre of war, Britain took the unprecedented step of allying herself with the growing industrial and military power of Japan. In so doing, she found her 'soldier in the East'. David Walder recreates a conflict too long neglected, save for the Dogger Bank crisis and the voyage of the Baltic Fleet. He discovers some… Read more

Description:
London: Leo Cooper, 1993. 169 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). Maps. "Between the years 1948 and 1960, British armed forces were involved in six campaigns overseas, in Malaya, Korea, Cyprus, Suez and South Arabia. In order to provide the manpower for these operations, fixed-term universal male peacetime conscription was instituted for the only time in this country's history. Of the million and a half men called up on reaching the age of eighteen, about a hundred and twenty-five thousand, or one in twelve, served in an active theatre of operations, for which a campaign medal was awarded. This book consists of the reminiscences of twenty-three of these men, who each served in one, or in some cases two, of the six campaigns. They recall, often with some emotion, their service in far-off places, against largely invisible enemies, in pursuit of aims which remain obscure to this day. They remember the brutality, the hardship, the excitement and the humour of an experience which for all of them… Read more

Description:
Marlborough: Crowood, 2000. 176 pp, large 8vo (9 15/16" H). Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour. "The first Ducati V-twin, the prototype 750 GT, appeared in the summer of 1970. Since then the type has carved itself a special place in motorcycle history, on both the road and track. (A)lthough majoring on models built from 1985 onwards, (this book) effectively charts the rise of the famous 90-degree V-twin from its earliest days to its current cult status. The original engine featured bevel-driven overhead camshafts, with or without the marque's legendary Desmo valve operation. Currently all Ducati V-twins employ both belt-driven overhead cams (pioneered by the Pantah series introduced at the end of the 1970s) and Desmo valve gear. The 2-valve family, which includes such well-known models as the F1/F3, Paso, Monster, Super Sport and ST2, is very much the affordable face of Ducati.

"Various events contrived to bring about the cafe racer era, together with the advent of the rocker - and subsequently mod - cults. New motorcycles such a s the BSA Gold Star singles and Star twins, Norton Dominator, Royal Enfield Meteor and Constellation, Triumph Tiger 110 and Thunderbird and Velocette Venom created a new breed of enthusiast, while films such as Marlon Brando's 'The Wild One' expressed, albeit in somewhat extreme form, the biker-as-rebel philosophy.
