Description:
London: Arms and Armour Press, 1985. 72 pp, large 8vo (9 5/8" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "Valiant, Victor, Vulcan - names which conjure up visions of strange and graceful white shapes wheeling in the skies over Farnborough or thundering in groups of four from airfields in the east of England. They are listed here in alphabetical order, for, like the nation which ordered, built and operated them, I cannot decide quite which of them was the best. What is clear, with the hindsight bestowed after nearly thirty years of consistent service in the Royal Air Force, is that all three v-bombers were truly multi-role aircraft, capable of adaptation either in initial design or by subsequent reworking." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light edgewear, sticker pull at top of front cover causing surface paper loss.. Soft Cover. Very Good-.

Description:
London: Warner, 1996. 225 pp, small 8vo (7 3/4" H). "Eric Davidson's second chapter in the age of Schweik - the era when the ordinary squaddie could, through a bit of earthy judgement and a lot of divine luck, bungle his way through World War II - safe in the knowledge that the enemy would have it own ration of Schweiks, similar common men like himself caught up in forces beyond their making or control. Men for whom war 'like life, was all make-do and mend, try all and error'. 'V for Schweik' celebrates the role of these Schweik-successors in a splendid new selection of tales. Covering the period from D-Day to VE Day, involving the valorous activities of men like Magna Carter, Heavy Wates and Huckleberry Flynn, these ten stories salute the spirit of the legendary Good Soldier with great energy and humour; tales often taller than tall, but always honouring the essential Schweikness of their heroes." Interior - tiny pen correction to typo in foreward, otherwise clean… Read more

London: William Kimber, 1981. 203 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, maps, drawings. "Only five minutes from launch to impact: not even enough time to give an air raid alert. They could not be tracked: they travelled too high and too fast to be shot down. These were the rocket 'Vengeance Weapons', launched in addition to the flying bombs in retaliation for British and American bombing raids on German cities. Damage inflicted upon London was considerable: 198 were killed by a flying bomb in the Aldwych, hundreds died at New Cross, and over one hundred civilians lost their lives in Smithfield Market. (The author) examines the effects of the V-1 flying bombs and V-2 rockets on a capital still showing the scars of the 1940-41 blitz. On 6th June 1944, only a few hours after the D-Day landings, orders were passed down from German High Command to prepare the 'Vengeance Weapons' for an immediate assault on Britain."

Toronto: James Lorimer, 2008. 143 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w map, photographs. "A defining moment in Canadian military history. A much-needed Allied victory. A show of valour and heroism. The battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 saw Canadian troops storm a strategic 14-kilometre long escarpment that was believed to be impregnable. This was the first time in the nation's history that a corps-sized formation fought together as a unit under its own meticulous planning. Canadian troops persevered under heavy fire to take the ridge, demonstrating incredible discipline and bravery. The battle became a symbol of sacrifice for the young nation and a turning point in its role in the global theatre of war."

"This is the story of Hastings Mill and Moodyville days, of Gassy Jack and his Deighton House saloon, of John Morton, the brickmaker, Sam Greer and Sam Brighouse, of the Great Fire, of Van Horne, the railway builder, and so many of those whose names must be forever associated with a city grown in the span of a single lifetime from nothing to a world crossroads and metropolis. It is a saga of a truly Western Canadian city through years of high emprise and deep depression to modern times. In this cavalcade of builders the city is seen as the work of very human people who live again in these pages. It is an affectionate salute to the makers of today's amenities and to the greater city to come.

Description:
Halifax : Fernwood, 2011. 190 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs. "Traditional schoolhouses and neighbourhood schools are disappearing at an alarming rate, making way for huge schools that serve multiple communities and adhere to the logic of modernization, centralization, and uniformity. In (this book, the author) explores the phenomenon of school closures, focusing on the little known and contentious history of public schooling in Maritime Canada from 1850 to the present. In a lively and stimulating narrative, (he) examines the rise of common schooling from one-room schoolhouses that encouraged local democratic control through to 'super sized' schools governed by a vast bureaucracy that silences public participation. Local 'save our schools' movements do arise in cities, towns, and villages throughout the Maritimes but rarely succeed in slowing the unrelenting march of 'progress'. Bennett contends that, in both urban and rural Maritime Canada, closing schools rips out a… Read more
