The Crucible of War: Western Desert 1941 by Barrie Pitt (£19.00)Publisher: Jonathan Cape — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

From the cover: “Shortly before midnight on June 11th, 1940, six troops of the 11th Hussars drove their Rolls-Royce armoured cars through gaps in the wire fence marking the border between Egypt and Tripolitania, and ambushed a small convoy of lorries crammed with bewildered Italian frontier troops whom nobody had bothered to inform of Mussolini’s declaration of war on Britain, made 24 hours before from the balcony of the Palazzo Venezia. Thus began the Desert War — the land campaign that meant more to the British people than any other between 1939 and 1945, and probably as much as the Battle of Britain in the air. It was to last for three years and secure for the allies the vital Middle East oil supplies without which they would have lost the war against the dictators.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The story shifts between Israel and Paris, Washington, New York and Los Angeles, from knife-edge debates in the Security Council to the cockpit of a Mirage jet fighter over Sharm el Sheikh and the euphoria of reclaiming the Old City of Jerusalem.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

[ISBN: 0850523516]Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.Description: From the cover: “The author makes no apology for the anecdotal style of his memoirs. As he rightly says, a raconteur is not obliged to spin his yarns in chronological order. Certainly it has structure; one would expect no less from a surgeon, a calling which demands both skill and critical attention to detail. Certainly it reveals that the author is a brilliant raconteur: the story of the man with a poker up his backside must be an odds on favourite in any future anthology of medical anecdotes. Certainly it shows him as a man of deep and often, one suspects, self-disturbing compassion, as is more than evident in his harrowing account of the crossing of the River Rapido under the grim shadow of Monte Cassino and the fury of the German guns.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½". 7.50 pages.

Hamburger Hill: May 11-20, 1969 by Samuel Zaffiri (£10.50)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0853689741]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper which is rubbed at the edges, nicked at the head of the spine. Price Clipped. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps;

From the cover: “The battle for Ap Bia Mountain, (Hill 937) Vietnam, 1969, became fa-mous both for the dramatic and fierce battles involved and for the ensuing controversy in the media and on the floor of the United States Senate. The men who fought and died in the field, and those who spoke their minds in Congress, were undoubtedly all sincere. But it takes the research and experience of a keen observer and gifted writer to bring the issues together as the author does here.

The NVA had used the A Shau Valley as a staging area for their attack on Hue during the 1968 Tet offensive. By late Spring of 1969, the high command decided it was time to really clean out the A Shau. A major terminus of the Ho Chi Minh trail, the A Shau Valley once again was the scene of heavy NVA activity. Earlier and smaller operations such as “Massachusetts Striker” had discovered truck parks and major supply depots in the valley.

On May 10th, the 3d Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division, the 9th Marine Regiment, and the 3d ARVN Regiment moved into the northern end of the A Shau to kick off “Operation Apache Snow”. The next day men from B Company of the 3d Battalion, 187th Infantry made initial contact on the lower reaches of Hill 937. The battle which ensued lasted for ten days. Before it was over, this human meat grinder was known around the world as Hamburger Hill. Finally, on May 20th, at the end of a four-battalion assault, Americans stood atop Dong Ap Bia.

The ferocity of this battle set off a firestorm of protest in the United States. The Army’s strategies and tactics were called “senseless” and “irresponsible” by Senator Edward Kennedy.

After relating the actual fighting in unforgettable detail, using after-action reports and innumerable interviews, the author presents Judgments, in which many of those who survived speak for themselves as to what they thought then and how they feel now. He travelled over 10,000 miles in order to interview as many participants as possible.

Hamburger Hill is a complete and rivetting account of a terrible battle and of what it meant in the total scheme of a terrible war.”

Pathfinder: The Untold Secret Mission in Iraq: The Inside Story of the Pathfinders, Bastard Son of the SAS by David Blakeley (£10.50)Publisher: London: Orion — 2012Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 9781409144090]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps [2];

From the cover: “First in — the official motto of one of the British Army’s smallest and most secretive units, 16 Air Assault Brigade’s Pathfinder Platoon. Unofficially, they are the bastard son of the SAS. And like their counterparts in Hereford, the job of the Pathfinders is to operate unseen and undetected deep behind enemy lines.

When British forces deployed to Iraq in 2003, Captain David Blakeley was given command of a reconnaissance mission of such critical importance that it could change the course of the war. It’s the story of nine men, operating alone and unsupported, fifty miles ahead of a US Recon Marine advance and head straight into a hornets nest, teeming with thousands of heavily-armed enemy forces. This is the first account of that extraordinary mission — abandoned by coalition command, left with no option but to fight their way out of the enemy’s backyard. And it provides a gripping insight into the Pathfinders themselves, a shadowy unit, just forty-five men strong, that plies its trade from the skies.

Trained to parachute in to enemy territory far beyond the forward edge of battle — freefalling from high altitude breathing bottled oxygen and employing the latest skydiving technology — the PF are unique. Because of new rules introduced since the publication of Bravo Two Zero, there have been no first-hand accounts of British Special Forces waging modern-day warfare for nearly a decade. And no member of the Pathfinders has ever told their story before. Until now. Pathfinder is the only first-hand account of a UKSF mission to emerge for nearly a generation. And it could be the last.”

From the cover: “The Falklands War — A Visual Diary by Linda Kitson is a remarkable book. Linda Kitson was the only official war artist attached to the British Task Force, and she was able to remain with the troops not only for the duration of the war itself, but also for the immediate aftermath.

Commissioned by the Imperial War Museum and the Fleet Air Arm, she left Southampton on May 12. And from that moment until July 17 she drew continuously, producing over 400 drawings.

Her selection of over 100 drawings for this book illustrates every stage of her war experience. From the day she boarded the requisitioned QE2 with 3,000 servicemen, she recorded the continuous, intensive training and preparation. She recorded the transfer at South Georgia to S.S. Canberra; the landings at San Carlos; and the deployment of the forces to Goose Green, to Fitzroy and Darwin, and finally to Stanley. She recorded, too, the poignant and frequently hazardous aspects of the aftermath once the Ceasefire papers had been signed.

The narrative captions that Linda Kitson has written to each of her drawings are expanded from the notes she made in her diary. The military detail is there, so too is the very human story.

This visual diary is a compelling document, and carries the distinction of both immediacy and historical record. It will be treasured because it reflects so honestly the bravery and determination of men experiencing conditions that have been compared to those of the Crimean War.”

How to Cheat at Gardening by Hazel Evans (£9.50)Publisher: Ebury Press — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852230125]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slight fraying at the corners. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Pages very gently age-tanned and a little musty overall.Description: Illustrated with line drawings.

From the cover: “There are two kinds of gardeners: the ‘Dig-a-double-trench’ and ‘Aren’t-my-dahlias-lovely’ brigade — and the rest of us. For let’s face it, doing the garden is either your life-long relaxation and hobby (in which case you won’t want to read this book), or just another household chore which you are shamed into tackling when the view from your back window begins to look like something from a bad science fiction film.

If you hate gardening and prefer to spend your weekends sailing, playing golf, visiting friends, or simply blissfully doing nothing at all — then this is the book for you.

Hazel Evans shows you in a light-hearted but practical way how to cheat. How to make your particular patch of ground look good and cared for, how to keep it under, but all done with the absolute minimum of effort.

She includes short cuts to success for gardens that are being started from scratch as well as for older ones, and goes on to describe the latest aids to easy gardening — both mechanical (throw away that spade!) and scientific (how to win the war on weeds and bugs). Other topics included in this handbook for gardening cheats are: covering up with climbers and hedges; vegetable gardens; garden design ideas and portable gardens.

The author has in her time owned everything from a strip 8ft by loft to a market garden. She has come up the gardening hard way and she now passes on her experience so that for you, too, garden work can become ‘a simply splendid, relaxing pastime in spring and summer when the mood takes over, and a little fresh air is indicated’..”

Wartime Courage: Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Ordinary People in World War Two by Gordon Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747596077]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown pays tribute to the heroism of that great generation of British men and women who took up arms against tyranny and overcame it. Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle: early in the war Lieutenant Richard Stannard, RNR, showed steely calm and ingenuity during the retreat from Norway in 1940, winning a VC; while on D-Day, Company Sergeant Major Hollis of the Green Howards won his by storming a pillbox alone, paving the way for a crucial advance to higher ground. Other stories tell of great danger faced again and again: Graham Hayes and Geoffrey Appleyard of the Small Scale Raiding Force (forerunner of the SBS) carried out daring and innovative actions over many months off Africa and along the Normandy coast; while John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, repeatedly practised his nerve-racking skills for six years, always aware that there were no second chances if things went wrong. Behind enemy lines the sangfroid and sheer endurance of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in occupied France showed a daunting, almost mysterious form of courage; and on the home front two railwaymen risked their lives to save a small country town from devastation when their ammunition train caught fire.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".
