Charts of War: The Maps and Charts That Have Informed and Illustrated War At Sea by John Blake (£20.00)Publisher: London: Conway — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844860310]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel with two small nicks toward the top corner. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Information is power, and in centuries past sea charts were guarded by both a ship’s navigator and the State, stretched on oak boards or rolled in leather cylindrical quivers, locked away. As the European nations began their territorial acquisition and contest in earnest, the information charts contained of harbour approaches, coastal landmarks and hazards, currents and tides, could give one side or another the advantage.

From the ships of small expeditionary fleets, which carried navigational charts, to the requirements of modern ships involved in combined operations, which need charts to include a whole range of information, John Blake has produced a fascinating, illustrated account of the role that charts have played in planning, preventing, conducting and recording war at sea. The selection not only includes charts depicting major battles and amphibious operations, but those drawn up for tactical and espionage purposes, for coastal defence and the positioning of forts along rivers and at the entrance to harbours.

Chapters run in chronological order, organized according to the overall political scene, but the main focus is on the development of chart making and surveying in relation to changing warfare techniques. Informative captions accompany each chart, setting them in historical context and providing illuminating details about the main protagonists and the chart makers and surveyors themselves. Taken from a range of international maritime archives, they include portolan charts of Spanish acquisitions in the New World; Francis Drake’s attack of Cadiz in 1587, known as ‘the singeing of the King of Spain’s beard’; the Dutch attack on Chatham in 1667 during the Second Anglo-Dutch War; a plan of Chesapeake Bay where British naval forces failed to relieve General Cornwallis during the American War of Independence; William Bligh’s chart of the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801; charts of the Battle of Jutland, one British, one German; and the operational chart drawn up before the D-Day landings at Omaha beach.”

Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “A survey of the history and geography of all the Bible lands in one volume is long overdue. Numerous books have been written on Palestine, but few have recognized that such widely separated places as Iran, Egypt, Greece and even Italy also provided a geographical stage on which the biblical drama was enacted. In recent years Bible dictionaries, encyclopaedias and atlases have been published in increasing numbers. Some of these have provided information on all the Bible lands, but their approach has been either topical or very largely geographical.

The writers of the present volume have sought to bring together historical, geographical, biblical and archaeological material on all ten areas of the Near Eastern and Mediterranean world that might properly be called “Bible lands”. Separate chapters deal with Mesopotamia, Egypt, Palestine, Phoenicia, Syria, Biblical Iran, Cyprus, Asia Minor, Greece and Italy.

Drs. Pfeiffer and Vos spent seven years on the planning and writing of this major contribution to biblical scholarship. Both men have travelled extensively in the countries about which they have written. Their work reflects a thorough knowledge of Bible lands, the archaeology and history of the Near East, and the Bible itself on which their work rests.

The Wycliffe Historical Geography of Bible Lands is an invaluable reference and study tool. The wealth of history and geography added to significant information concerning national customs, aspirations, and religious beliefs, the whole presented in a warm, clear, forceful style, makes this volume a significant contribution to an important area of knowledge. An unusually useful and entertaining reference work for pastors, students, schools and libraries, and for laymen who seek a clearer understanding of God’s inspired Word.”

Trouble Spots: The World Atlas of Strategic Information by Andrew Duncan & Michael Opatowski (£13.50)Publisher: Stroud: Sutton Publishing — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0750921714]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “The world in which we live is an increasingly dangerous place, subject to many widely differing threats that range from nuclear weapons proliferation to chemical and biological warfare, and from international crime to tribal genocide. Trouble Spots explains, through concise authoritative text and clear graphics, the causes of conflict — whether it is currently in progress, in abeyance or imminent unless preventative measures are taken.

Thematic problems such as global warming and weapons of mass destruction are reviewed, but Trouble Spots focuses mainly on unrest of a regional nature, such as in the Middle East, the Indian Sub-Continent, and in East and South-East Asia. Maps are used as a key to each topic, showing not simply the geographical features which influence military or humanitarian activity, but also the locations of the various factors contributing to the problem, for example population ethnicity or religious breakdown.

The authors give a short historical background to each problem together with a summary of recent events and steps taken by participants and third or international parties to bring about a solution. They do not attempt to criticise or offer answers, but instead concentrate on the advantages and disadvantages of possible options. They also assess the likelihood of violence spreading from the area of original outbreak. The trouble spots considered in this book are not necessarily areas of military conflict: several issues with purely political and economic implications are covered, for example the availability of vital resources such as oil and water.

Trouble Spots is meticulously researched and richly illustrated with specially commissioned maps and diagrams, and supported by a selection of evocative photographs from around the world. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the causes of conflict in the contemporary world.”

[ISBN: 0356075680]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; From the introduction: “This atlas of the main military and naval events of the Second World War has been divided into sections representing the general theatres of the war. Each theatre is followed to its conclusion through the text, which explains and amplifies briefly the details given in the maps. The various theatres did not, of course, exist in isolation, though to the majority of combatants at ground and sea levels it must have appeared that they did. Events in one theatre of war naturally affected events and decisions in other theatres. These events must be assessed in parallel if the many pressures that influenced their course and outcome are to be appreciated fully.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by David Chandler.

John Worsley's War: An Official War Artist in World War II by John Worsley; Ken Giggal; (£11.50)Publisher: Airlife — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1853102571]Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Faint creases to the top of the upper panel near the spine. Book shop sticker to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “John Worsley was one of the very few active service artists of the Second World War, and in this book he recalls his experiences both in active sea warfare and later as a prisoner of war.

At the outbreak of war the twenty-year-old John Worsley joined up as a Midshipman and during off duty moments sketched his fellow sailors and incidental scenes of life at sea. Having survived the sinking of his first ship, HMS Laurentic, destroyer service on Atlantic convoys and, during 1942, troop convoys from the Red Sea to Australia in the cruiser HMS Devonshire, in 1943 he was made an Official Naval War Artist on the Commander-in-Chiefs staff, Malta. After covering the first Italian landing in the Straits of Messina at Reggio and later the landing at Salerno, he moved on to cover some of the nefarious activities opening up the Naval front in the Adriatic and there was captured by the Germans.

As a prisoner he continued depicting the PoW life around him and helped to produce forged identity papers and, most ingenious of all, he created ‘Albert’, the successful dummy Naval Officer escape device used both for the initial escape of one prisoner, and also as his stand-in on three roll calls a day for four days after. The celebrated film Albert RN is based on this episode.

John Worsley’s War captures the sense of immediacy and intimacy that comes from an on-the-spot artist depicting his own world.”

The Atlas of Past Worlds: A Comparative Chronology of Human History, 2000BC-AD1500 by John Manley (£10.50)Publisher: Cassell — 1993Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0304344567]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrap slightly curled. A slightly dog-eared, if pleasant, copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “When the mighty stones at Stonehenge were being erected, what was happening in the rest of the world? What gods were the people of these different cultures worshipping? Two thousand years later, when the splendour of Pompeii was abruptly brought to an end, which other empires existed in the world? John Manley’s fascinating, fresh approach to world history answers these and many other questions.

Using five distinct ‘time slices’, The Atlas of Past Worlds sets out to compare five separate cultures within each selected time span. By taking a total of twenty-five archaeological sites, each with a significant place in history, the author reveals what happened within different civilizations at key periods of human history.

Sites are selected from five geographical areas — Europe, western Asia, Africa, eastern Asia and Oceania, and the Americas — and the story unfolds in 2000 BC, a time when complex societies emerged in all five areas of the world. The story continues through the subsequent key periods of 1000 BC, AD 1 and AD 1000 and concludes with AD 1500, after which many indigenous societies were modified or disrupted by European voyages of discovery.

Each of the five slices of time concentrates on a central theme — religion; political, social and economic structures; empires; new directions; and cities — thereby giving us an insight into the diversity of human experience and achievement. This diversity is heightened by the inclusion of less-celebrated settlements, for example El Paraiso and Kalemba, as well as celebrated sites, such as Petra and Easter Island.

John Manley’s unique combination of times and places provides unexpected conclusions, and this exciting and thought-provoking comparative approach to human history is outstandingly illustrated by over 250 maps, plans, reconstructions, drawings and colour photographs.”
