From the cover: “In late 1942, when Allied fortunes stood at their lowest, German U-boats began to decimate shipping in the Indian Ocean. In one month alone they sank 46 ships, a total of 250,000 tons.

These U-boats were guided to their targets by a secret transmitter aboard a German ship which had sought shelter in the neutral harbour in the Portuguese colony of Goa, 400 miles south of Bombay. No action involving regular British forces could be taken against this ship for fear of infringing Portuguese neutrality — yet it was imperative to silence this transmitter. The result seemed stalemate — until someone remembered that in Calcutta, 1,400 miles away, some civilian merchants, bankers, solicitors and accountants belonged to a part-time territorial unit, The Calcutta Light Horse. They had joined because they liked riding and racing. Military activities were limited to an evening parade once a week — and often drinks at the bar constituted this parade. These civilians were asked to volunteer for a task no-one else could undertake — at their own risk and expense. If they failed, then the whole episode could be written off as a regrettable drunken prank that misfired.

The date for this strange and desperate assault was March 9th 1943. What happened when 18 middle-aged civilians formed their own boarding party — and the astonishing results — makes this one of the strangest, funniest and most exciting stories of war in the East, “

Yesterday's Britain by Edited by Jonathan Bastaple (£16.00)Publisher: Reader's Digest — 2001Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0276423917]Condition: Very Good.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. The Illustrated Story of How We Lived, Worked and Played in This Century. Reprint, with amendments. From the introduction: “Yesterday’s Britain is an intimate family scrapbook of the nation. It is full of photographs and images, incidents and anecdotes which will strike a light in the memory of anyone who has spent their life in this country. It will evoke all kinds of half-forgotten experiences, from the itch of school trousers in September to the chore of cooking by candlelight in a power cut. For those born later, Yesterday’s Britain answers the question: what was it like? What was it like to sleep in an Anderson shelter as the bombs rained down? To eat snoek? To hear rock’n’roll for the first time? To sit the 11-plus? For this generation, the book is a sort of travel guide to the country’s past. It highlights some of the things which would strike a visitor from the present day as bizarre or downright alien. Did television really stop broadcasting for an hour every evening so that parents could get the children to bed? Did men actually sit on the beach in their heavy suits with a knotted handkerchief on their heads? Was there truly a time when the motorways were as empty as the open seas?Notes: Size: 11¼" x 8½".

Here is the noisy frenzy of street corner patriotism - the lonely boredom of the training camps, the eerie shadow of a zeppelin gliding over London to drop a deadly rain of bombs as sirens wail their helpless warning. Here, too, are the jaunty, daring young airmen bouncing down a runway in their Sopwith Camels to take off, scarves flapping behind them; the screams of a straining Rolls-Royce engine as a flaming Bristol fighter plunges earthward…Notes: Size: 8vo Demy (22 x 14cm Approx.). 335 pages.

The Wild Side of Town by Chris Baines (£14.00)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0563213124]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Signed by the author on the half-title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Following the success of How to Make a Wildlife Garden, Chris Baines takes his wildlife crusade beyond the garden fence and into the green deserts which make up an astonishingly high proportion of our towns and cities.

Recent destruction of woodland and hedgerow means that ‘the countryside’ can no longer sustain a rich variety of wildlife and ironically the built-up areas can provide a much needed refuge. Railway cuttings, wasteland and sympathetic parks and gardens combine to produce essential corridors, leading foxes or badgers from one feeding ground or haven to another. Birds, frogs and insects may not need the same continuity of green cover, but they do need safe breeding areas, freedom from chemical pollution, and reliable sources of food.

We spend millions of pounds a year on mowing grass — but why not let lawns grow longer and allow buttercups and daisies to flourish in them? Why not leave decaying leaves on the ground to provide shelter for hedgehogs and food for harmless creepy-crawlies?

Chris Baines has asked these questions of a lot of ‘authorities’ and had an encouraging and positive response. Now his TV series and this inspirational book show how everyone can help to turn our towns and cities into one huge nature reserve — for wildlife and for people.”

Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader by Edited by John Bradley (£13.00)Publisher: University of Arizona Press — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816519560]Condition: Good+. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

Without Frontiers by Hélène Jeanty Raven (£13.00)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1960Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a short, closed, tear to the foot of the upper panel. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “A woman can scarcely be expected to forgive those who kill the man most dear to her. But that is what Madame Helene Jeanty Raven did. And such a story of spiritual growth within a human being can hardly have been equalled in the long course of history.

Madame Jeanty Raven was the gay and lovely wife of a Belgian lawyer turned soldier when the war against Nazi oppression broke out. Without hesitation she plunged into what was even then the Resistance, giving cover to those who plotted against the invaders and shelter to a British airman. Before long she was in the hands of the Gestapo, and so was her husband. To save him she feigned madness, only to find after years in Nazi prisons and asylums that her husband had been shot in his prison camp.

But instead of bitterness there came a positive turning to the solace of religion, to work for the refugees, to the pursuit of goodwill among all men.

Here is one of the most remarkable, one of the most inspiring, of the books that have come out of a cruel and senseless war — a book to be read by all those who have faith in the decency of mankind.”

British Airports by Leo Marriott (£11.50)Publisher: Ian Allan — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711020760]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small sticker to the first blank. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “It is a sobering thought that, around the world, over 1,000 million passengers are boarding scheduled airline flights every year and the figure is constantly increasing. Added to this are millions of charter passengers as well as others on private or business flights and all of these have one thing in common — they will begin and end their flight at an airport. Those with an interest in aviation affairs will inevitably concentrate their attention on the aircraft themselves, perhaps the most exciting machines ever invented by man, but from the very earliest days aviators have always been dependant on support from the ground. Of course, their original demands were few, any reasonably flat area would do for taking-off and landing and a few gallons of fuel could be easily carried in cans. However, early aircraft were fragile and at the mercy of the elements and so some sort of weatherproof shelter soon became a necessity. As aircraft got larger and heavier, they needed longer take-off and landing runs and so aerodromes became larger, although still very small by modern standards.

Since the early years technical improvements in aircraft design have forced airport authorities to provide better facilities such as longer runways, larger terminals, radar, runway and approach lighting, and instrument landing systems.

This book attempts, through the medium of photographs, to show some of the history of our airports and how they have grown and developed over the years. While all the major airports have been covered in varying detail, an effort has been made to include a large cross section of the many smaller or less busy airfields which, nevertheless, play an important part in the communities they serve. As far as possible aerial photographs have been used as these best show the airfield layout and are useful for comparative purposes.”

Architecture by David Jacobs (£10.50)Publisher: Newsweek Books — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0882251074]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “THE STORY OF BUILDING, writes the author of this penetrating study, starts the way stories of so many of mankind’s enterprises start — “speculatively, and in the almost immeasurably distant past”. But it would be an exasperating experience to trace the evolution of mud huts into pyramids, Greek temples, and Gothic cathedrals. Instead, he invites the reader to separate buildings for shelter from buildings as artistic statements. In an instant, we see architecture as a badge of civilization, “the requisite sign, the certain credential without which a society cannot be called civilized”. Architecture has some 170 illustrations, more than a third in full colour. Stunning modern photographs are juxtaposed with plans, cross sections, scale models, and historic views to form a vivid counterpoint to the authoritative text. A special, twenty-four page section, “Architects on Architecture”, contains excerpts from the writings of Louis H. Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Eero Saarinen, among others. A five-page chronology relates events in the history of architecture to other cultural and political developments, while a selected bibliography and a full index make this a valuable reference work.”Notes: Size: 10½" x 7½".

Chris Ryan’s Ultimate Survival Guide takes us through three extreme terrains — desert, rainforest and arctic tundra, with a special section on urban survival, and shows us how to survive in such hostile environments.

It covers not only the psychology of survival; how to think clearly when you are exhausted and malnourished, how to keep going and develop mental toughness by setting goals and addressing the main threats to life — dehydration, starvation, hypothermia and panic — but is also packed with hints and tips from Ryan’s own first hand experiences.”
