China At War by Freda Utley (£249.00)Publisher: London: Faber & Faber — 1939Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little loss, heavy damp-marking to the reverse showing slightly at the panels. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Endpapers and blanks a little grubby. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Map to the rear slightly mis-folded. Description: Illustrated by way of: Frontispiece; Black & White Photographs; Fold-Out Maps [1];

From the cover: “Freda Utley, who has just returned from the seat of war in the Far East, gives us in this book a vivid description of the Chinese war, as she has seen it from the Chinese side, backed by a brilliant expose of the Chinese political situation. One of the very few British newspaper correspondents in the war zone (she represented the News Chronicle), the only Englishwoman to visit the Yangtze fronts, and a world-renowned authority on Far Eastern matters, Miss Utley is quite exceptionally well informed, as readers of her last book, Japan’s Feet of Clay, know. A trained and accurate observer, she allows her sympathy with the Chinese cause to warm but not to warp the truth. A naturally straightforward writer, she makes her story easy to read, deeply interesting, and therefore deeply moving.”

The Imperial Russian Navy by Anthony J. Watts (£154.00)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0853689121]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper which is a little faded at the spine and onto the margins of the panels. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Occupying a most important place in naval history, the fleets of the Imperial Russian Navy represent a major subject for study by serving officers, senior historians and naval buffs. Few published accounts have done justice to the topic, and none has offered the range of photographic illustration presented in this volume. The three centuries of naval development covered here demonstrate that its constant need to control its own ports and precious narrow exits to the oceans, as well as its pursuit of access to the Mediterranean, has caused the Russian Navy to be regularly in combat and at the forefront of advances in design, armament and strategy. Throughout the battles with its neighbours, the Crimean, Russo-Japanese conflicts, and the First World War, the Imperial Russian Navy deployed novel ships and weapons, including early use of torpedoes and of the submarine.

Anthony Watts has brought together an unprecedented collection of photographs and data to provide this new study of a most significant element of military history. Through his summary of Russian naval evolution, his compendium of technical information and the pictorial coverage, he has provided a most important contribution to naval literature, perhaps the most valuable volume on the subject for eighty years.”

French Aircraft 1939-42: Fighters, Bombers, Reconnaissance and Observation Types by Dominique Breffort (£151.00)Publisher: Paris: Histoire & Collections — 2011Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 2352501970]Condition: Near Fine. Slightest rubbing to the tips of the wrappers otherwise a very well presented copy of an uncommon title. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Drawings; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Contrary to what was long believed and asserted, French Armée de I’Air was not crushed on the first day of the German attack, on 10 May 1940. For aircraft, France did have — and a lot! — and in particular it did have pilots who fought, who even fought very bravely, especially if you take into account the equipment they were using, that subtle blend of out-of-date and therefore vulnerable machines and new, modern aircraft with all their teething troubles which not always corrected. This book, which is actually the reissue, very substantially increased, of volumes 7 and 8 of the Planes & Pilots series bearing the same title and published by Histoire & Collections in 2004-2005, provides a comprehensive overview of military aircraft of the crucial period in the history of the Armée de I’Air extending from the beginning of World War II to the dissolution of the aviation of the Vichy regime. From Amiot to Potez, all fighters, bombers, reconnaissance and observation planes used by the Armée de I’Air between 1939 and 1942, produced in France or purchased abroad, are presented by alphabetical order, supplemented by an overview presentation of the main prototypes built and flying before the end of hostilities but which circumstances prevented from being produced in series, even though this was planned and indeed sometimes already started.”

The Rape of Greece: The King, the Colonels and the Resistance by Peter Murtagh (£129.00)Publisher: London, Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Singapore & Toronto: Simon & Schuster — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0671710389]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Pages gently age-tanned with light spotting to the blanks and pastedowns. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “IN the early hours of 21 April 1967, Greece, the birthplace of democracy, became the home of the most repressive military dictatorship seen in Europe since the end of the Second World War. A junta of army colonels espousing extreme right-wing views seized power, outlawed political parties and began a seven-year reign of terror.

The Rape of Greece is about democracy betrayed. In laying bare the atrocities of the colonels’ regime, it reveals how this small European country became a pawn in the Cold War ideological battleground, and how agents of the Central Intelligence Agency sought to control Greek politics through their infiltration of the Greek royal family and armed forces.

But The Rape of Greece is also about people fighting back and ultimately winning. When the tanks of the neo-fascist junta rolled through the streets of Athens in 1967, resistance was not far behind. Here is the story of one resistance group, Democratic Defence, its leaders under siege in Athens and their foreign helpers. In the face of a brutal dictatorship that tortured its victims at will, this motley group of men and women — from England, France, Germany, Scandinavia and America — tirelessly smuggled resistance activists out of Greece and bombs and propaganda in. Their astonishing story of bravery and commitment, failures and triumphs, appears here for the first time in print.

Peter Murtagh, who spent five years researching and writing the book, combines the analytical insight of an award-winning investigative journalist with the narrative drive of a natural storyteller. Filled with political intrigue, adventure and larger-than-life characters, The Rape of Greece is a startling and compelling read, and an important chronicle of modern history.”

From the cover: “This is the sequel to Tim Mason’s acclaimed story of the A&AEE (Aeroplane & Armament Experimental Establishment) during World War II and picks up developments from the end of the war — the beginning of the end of the piston-engine era and the dawn of the jet age — and into the Cold War years. The aircraft tested ranged from tiny piston-engined trainers, four-engined transports and a whole spectrum of jets and helicopters, many of which still serve as current RAF and Fleet Air Arm frontline types. The Ministry of Defence has specially cleared some of the material for use in this book.”

Old Friends, New Enemies: The Royal Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy: Volume 2: The Pacific War 1942-1945 by Arthur J. Marder, Mark Jacobsen & John Horsfield (£84.00)Publisher: Oxford: Clarendon Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0198201508]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a nick to the head of the upper panel and faded at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendix; Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables; Portrait to the frontispiece;

From the cover: “This first scholarly account of the Royal Navy in the Pacific War is a companion volume to Arthur Marder’s Old Friends, New Enemies: Strategic Illusions, 1936-1941. Picking up the story at the nadir of British naval fortunes — everywhere weak and naked , in Churchill’s phrase — it examines the Royal Navy’s role in events from 1942 to the Japanese surrender in August 1945.

Drawing on both British and Japanese sources and personal accounts by participants, the authors vividly retell the story of the collapse of Allied defences in the Dutch East Indies, culminating in the Battle of the Java Sea. They recount the attempts of the ‘fighting admiral’, Sir James Somerville, to train his motley fleet of cast-offs into an efficient fighting force in spite of the reluctance of Churchill, who resisted the formation of a full-scale British Pacific Fleet until the 1945 assault on the Ryukyu Islands immediately south of Japan.

Meticulously researched and fully referenced, this unique and absorbing account provides a controversial analysis of the key personalities who shaped events in these momentous years, and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the Pacific War.

Knights of the Black Cross: Hitler's Panzerwaffe and Its Leaders by Bryan Perrett (£58.50)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0709028067]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The German Armoured Corps — the Panzerwaffe — was instrumental in the mighty conquests of the Nazis between 1939 and 1942 and in the remaining years of the war it provided the very backbone of Germany’s defence. Although its strength never exceeded one-fifth of the German Army, the commitment of the Panzerwaffe’s officers to the traditional Annihilation Concept made an enormous impact on the Second World War, particularly on the Eastern Front. The titanic struggles which took place there, after the early victories in Poland, the West and the Balkans, demonstrated the German tank soldiers’ superior tactical abilities and provided the basis of Soviet war theories to this day.

Bryan Perrett’s meticulously researched and incisive account tells the story of this remarkable band of soldiers, the evolution of their tactics and the development of their superlative fighting vehicles. An authoritative study which will fascinate the military expert and general reader alike.”

[ISBN: 0900913258]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1980] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Ribbon Markers [1]; Tables; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Forty years later, After the Battle magazine has ploughed an entirely fresh furrow across this legendary field of human conflict to produce what has now come to be regarded as a memorial to The Few’.

This 816-page book contains over one thousand seven hundred pictures and over half a million words of text contributed by specialists, enthusiasts and historians. It does not attempt to re-tell the story of the battle once again. Instead it has been the Editor’s intention to bring a new aspect to the combat between July 10 — October 31, 1940 through the presentation of comparative ‘then and now’ photographs familiar to readers of After the Battle magazine.

Never before has such detailed coverage been given to the losses of either the Royal Air Force or the Luftwaffe. The graves of RAF aircrew that were killed have been listed, visited by the editorial team and photographed as a complete and lasting record of those that died. The pilots, their memorials, crashes and crash sites, and the aircraft that have survived are profusely illustrated. Twenty of the most famous fighter aerodromes from which they flew have been explored and are described as they were at the time and as they are today, with a particularly detailed account of one typical front line station.

With an extra 96 pages, the Mk II edition brings together all the additional research and information on the battle which has come to light since the book was originally published. Also included is a complete listing of ‘The Few’ — all those aircrew of Fighter Command who participated in the Battle — which is the culmination of more than twenty-five years’ work by John Holloway. Plus illustrated indexes of aircraft and personnel together with a pen portrait of Pilot Officer Keith Gillman — featured on the dustjacket.

No book has ever been published that chronicles the Battle of Britain in this way. Among its pages, men and events, aircraft and aerodromes that have already been consigned to the past are commemorated in the present.”

Before the Ironclad: Ship Design, Propulsion and Armament in the Royal Navy, 1815-60 by Edited by David K. [Keith] Brown (£50.00)Publisher: London: Conway Maritime Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851775322]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned at the spine. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [14]; Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “In the massive revolution that affected warship design between Waterloo and Warrior, the Royal Navy is often depicted as fiercely resisting every change until it was almost too late, but this new history of the transition from sail to steam challenges these old assumptions.

Beginning with the structural improvements of Robert Seppings, the book traces the gradual introduction of more scientific methods and the advent of steam and the paddle fighting ship, iron hulls and screw propulsion. It analyses the performance of the fleet in the Crimean War, and concludes with the design of Warrior, the first iron-built, sea-going capital ship in the world.

In passing, the author reveals an organisation that was well aware of new technology, carefully evaluating its potential use, and occasionally (as with its enthusiastic espousal of iron hulls) moving too quickly for its own good. Based on much new research, and a lifetime’s understanding of the technical problems, Before the Ironclad is a well-balanced and coherent account of general developments, as well as an in-depth study of the ships themselves.”

Nelson's Ships: A History of the Vessels in Which He Served 1771 - 1805 by Peter Goodwin (£42.00)Publisher: London: Conway Maritime Press — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851777422]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Slight rippling to the foot of the leaves, possibly caused by slight damp at some time, but inoffensive. Description: Jacket illustration: Nelson's Flagships at Anchor, 1807 by Nicholas Pocock. This is a composite image of Nelson's flagships at the Spithead anchorage painted in 1807. From left to right, Agamemnon, Vanguard (showing her broadside), stern view of Elephant flying the flag of Vice-Admiral of the Blue, Captain and then Victory firing a salute and flying the flag of Vice-Admiral of the White. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Much has been written about Nelson, the man and his successful career from midshipman to great commander, culminating with his glorious death at the Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805. Added to this, considerable literary works have been published about his flagship at that famous battle, HMS Victory, but little has been written about the other vessels in which he served throughout his career, providing him with experience vital to his professional and personal development.

Beginning with HMS Raisonnable, the 3rd Rate 64-gun ship in which Nelson began his naval career at the start of 1771, Nelson’s Ships provides a service history of the 25 Royal Navy vessels in which Nelson served. All the famous ships-of-the-line are included: Agamemnon, the vessel of which he assumed command in 1793, Captain, which he commanded at Cape St. Vincent, Vanguard, flagship at the Nile and of course Victory. For the first time many of the smaller ships Nelson served in such as Carcass, Badger and La Minerve, are examined. A final chapter is devoted to the 12 ships in which Nelson served only for a very brief period of time.

A comprehensive background to each vessel is provided examining the design, construction and armament. A full service history then follows including the actions in which the ship participated, any modifications that were made, refit histories and costs, a complete list of the commanding officers of the ship and finally the ship’s ultimate fate. Numerous illustrations, superb plans and draughts specially drawn by the author, and a lavish colour artwork section complements the text.

The incidents that occurred whilst Nelson was on board each ship reveal an abridged version of his career and offer both the enthusiast and general reader an insight into the man himself. Utilising the ships’ logs allows the work to examine many important issues in Nelson’s navy such as victualling and health, discipline and punishment, ship handling and repair thus providing a fascinating insight into the reality of life at sea and disproving many of the myths surrounding the Georgian navy. Fully researched and developed by one of the most well known and respected Nelson historians, Nelson’s Ships is an invaluable work for both the academic and enthusiast alike.”

U.S. Destroyer: An Illustrated Design History by Norman Friedman (£42.00)Publisher: London, Melbourne: Arms & Armour Press — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0853685215]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily bruised at the head, tail and corners of the boards with damaged to the dust wrapper which has a tape repair to the bottom corner of the upper panel. Front hinge starting. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise and a good reference copy of an uncommon title. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “For almost a century, the destroyer has been the image of sleek, aggressive power. This hook explains how the U. S. Navy developed its destroyers. It also describes the naval and civilian forces that determined the design and operation of these ships. In the past two decades, U. S. destroyer design, now typified by the Spruance and Perry classes, has become increasingly controversial: for example, nuclear vs. conventional power, endurance vs. speed. Norman Friedman, a highly regarded authority on U. S. warships, discusses the reasoning behind the designs of these ships — this reasoning, he believes, will continue to dominate U. S. warship development for the remainder of this century.

From their torpedo-boat forebears onward, all destroyer classes are illustrated and described in detail. Many designs that were never carried to construction are also discussed because of their significance in the development of the ships actually built. These designs range from the large “destroyer leader” of 1919, through the 40-knot Seahawk of the sixties, to those that preceded the current Spruance and Ticonderoga.

The author also describes the destroyer escorts (DE, now frigates, FF), the large post-war frigates (DL/DLG, now redesignated cruisers), and the Perry-class FFGs. They are all interrelated, all part of the destroyer story.

An entire chapter is devoted to destroyer combat experience in World War II, as this had a major influence on ship design and development. Extracts from battle reports made at that time are included. Separate chapters describe destroyer weapon systems for antiaircraft and antisubmarine warfare as they have evolved since the beginnings of the destroyer force.

Friedman’s detailed descriptions and illustrations of ships and of their modifications in service should be of great interest to naval historians, model-builders, and to all ship lovers. Most classes are illustrated by detailed profiles drawn by renowned draftsman Arthur D. Baker III, and in many cases inboard profiles showing the internal arrangements of the ships are included. Detailed photographs of World War II ships alter relit should be invaluable to ship model-makers. As a monument to the men of the destroyer force and to their ships, the book is unsurpassable.

This is the only history of U. S. Destroyer development based entirely on the internal, formerly classified papers of the U. S. Navy. For all who would like to understand the origins of the present Navy, and for all who hope to shape the Navy of the future, U. S. Destroyers is vital reading.”

The Barrier and the Javelin: Japanese and Allied Strategies, February-June, 1942 by H. P. Willmott (£36.00)Publisher: Annapolis: Naval Institute Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0870210920]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Distributors sticker covers publisher colophon on the title page. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “H. P. Willmott’s perceptive analysis of Japanese and Allied strategies in the Pacific war has set new standards for World War Two historians. The scope and depth of the research he did for the first book of his Pacific trilogy, Empires in the Balance, have earned him a reputation as a major chronicler of the period. With this second volume, Willmott continues to offer significant new material and interpretations that are certain to warrant further study.

The Barrier and the Javelin begins with a thoughtful assessment of the critical situation in which Japan found herself in the spring of 1942. Even by that early stage of the Pacific war, the fundamental weakness of the Japanese effort was evident. Japan had gone to war with little more than a five-month plan of campaign and the conviction that she could not be defeated by enemies who were her moral inferiors. Her intention had been to conquer territories essential to her economic survival and then fight a defensive war that would exhaust her enemies and lead them to a negotiated settlement. By the spring Japan’s leaders were becoming uncom-fortably aware that their enemies would not negotiate and that they themselves lacked the plans, and perhaps the means, to make them change their minds. Willmott sets out the arguments over strategy that plagued the Japanese naval command as it tried to formulate a coherent response to this potentially disastrous situation. In so doing he suggests that the weaknesses of the command’s decision-making process kept the Japanese from taking the one course of action that could have changed the outcome of the war, and were responsible for the ill-considered plan of campaign that began to fall apart in the Coral Sea in May’and ended in disaster four weeks later at Midway.

The book, however, is not confined to an examination of Japanese policymaking. Just as Empires in the Balance provides & critical appraisal of the moves made by all the combatants during the first five months of the war, so The Barrier and the Javelin places the Allied part of the February-June 1942 record alongside that of the Japanese. In doing so, it examines why the British and their dominions were totally unable to put together a proper Pacific policy in the opening phase of the war, and why the Americans came to accept a commitment to fight in the southwest Pacific when this area had barely figured in their prewar calculations. American intelligence gathering — Operation Magic — and its effect on the progress of the war are also described in full.

Willmott follows his assessment of the Allied situation with a detailed analysis of the battle of the Coral Sea and the action off Midway, which at last places these battles in their proper context. Debunking long-held beliefs about the com-parative strengths of the Japanese and Allied forces, he contends that in both battles the weaker fleet was defeated, not victorious as most accounts suggest. He further argues that if Japan was indeed fated to lose the war, then her defeat at Midway can hardly be regarded as the decisive battle so many claim it to be. Inevitability and decisiveness, he points out, are mutually exclusive terms.

Many readers will find Willmott’s treatment of the Japanese side of the battle of Midway an intriguing alternative to other books on the subject. He reveals some important new information that finally explains the inconsistencies found in previous accounts. His condemnation of Admiral Yama-moto’s inept handling of the entire fiasco is unusually clear and hard-hitting.

This view of the flow of events in the first half of 1942 provides one of the most comprehensive, balanced and readable studies of the period ever written. It will be of enduring interest to general readers as well as professional historians and students of World War Two.”

From the cover: “The nomination of the greatest fighter pilot of the Royal Air Force in the Second World War must always be a matter for argument. So many of the qualities which add up to greatness are not measurable — courage, leadership, endurance. The only concrete yardstick is the number of confirmed kills, the score of enemy aircraft shot down. It is on the latter account that M T St John Pattle can now be called the top-scoring Allied fighter pilot of World War II. But it is also the above-mentioned qualities which have placed ‘Pat’ Pattle, the boy from Butterworth, in the hall of legends. Yet, after the war Pattle’s achievements seemed destined never to be fully recognised — both because all records in the air campaign in Greece in 1941 were destroyed during the Allied retreat, and because the Greek campaign itself, viewed as an Allied defeat, was never perhaps given the acknowledgement it deserved. E C R Baker has pieced together Pattle’s amazing career with authoritative detail; this he has achieved through exhaustive research carried out in co-operation with the surviving pilots and other members of the squadrons with which Pattle fought. ‘Pat’ Pattle, once the unknown ace, was killed in the bitter fighting over Greece, and the records of his squadron never reached the Air Ministry files. But the author’s researches confirm that Pattle had shot down at least forty enemy planes in nine months of action before he was killed in April 1941. Furthermore, following the original publication of this book, the author was contacted by numerous people who knew, or were with, Pattle, during his career in the RAF, and provided further evidence of Pattle’s feats. On the basis of that evidence, Pattle’s confirmed kills can unquestionably be placed at between forty-four and sixty-four aircraft shot down. But this is more than a retelling of statistics. Here is the story of an outstanding fighter pilot and a great leader of men, the unknown ace of the Royal Air Force. Pattle was born in the Cape and raised on a lonely farm in Namibia. He discovered early in his life a keen desire within him to fly. He was rejected by the South African Air Force in 1933, but became more determined than ever to achieve his ambition. Pattle left South Africa to join the Royal Air Force before the war and achieved a success out of all proportion to expectations. He did much to help the hard-pressed troops on the ground. On 20 April 1941, a sick man, he led the remnants of his own and another squadron against an armada of over a hundred German aircraft. In the desperate fighting that followed, he shot down at least two enemy aircraft and then dived to the rescue of one of his pilots. The odds were too heavy and seconds later his aircraft, with Pattle slumped over the controls, crashed in the Bay of Eleusis.”

The Crowded Sky: An Anthology of Flight from the Beginnings to the Age of the Guided Missile by Edited by Neville Duke & Edward Lanchbery (£34.00)Publisher: London: Cassell & Co.

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a small tape repair at the foot of the lower panel to the join and further closed tears at the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned with spotting to the blanks. Description: From the cover: “Man’s longing to fly is as old as history. The wish to escape from the earth and soar with the birds recurs in Biblical verse and ancient legend, but it was Leonardo da Vinci who first considered the practical problems involved. From da Vinci to Colonel Frank Everest, Jr. , ‘the fastest man alive’, who in 1956 flew the Bell X-2 rocket plane at nearly two thousand miles an hour, this anthology of prose and poetry takes in its stride every conceivable branch of aviation, including the first faltering experiments, and the heyday of the balloon and the airship (there is an absorbing description taken from Nevil Shute’s autobiography of the testing of the R. 100, whose sister ship the R. 101 went to her doom so soon afterwards). Beside Bleriot’s exciting story are con-temporary newspaper accounts of Britain’s first air meetings and early flying clubs, and all else which has gone to make up the panorama of aviation through the ages. The First World War brought the greatest single challenge to the improvement of the aeroplane, and is seen here from the points of view of both Allied and German air aces. But flying was still in its infancy, at a time when the officer in command of the aeroplane gave the signal to descend by means of a smack on his pilot’s helmet! From the first World War to the second, with its roll of immortal names, among them Guy Gibson, Pierre Clostermann and Cheshire, V. C.; and finally to peace and the age of jet aircraft. In a section entitled Wings of Peace the editors show that to some, flying is an escape from the cares of the earth and a retreat that gives spiritual solace. So we come up-to-date with today’s test pilot, exploring new regions of speed and altitude, and developing test flying into a skilled and complicated science.

Here is a book to be dipped into again and again for its tales of high adventure, of the incredible audacity of men battling against the eternal forces of nature, and of the progress of aviation from its humble beginnings to its present vast complexity.”

Nelson's Ships: A History of the Vessels in Which He Served 1771 - 1805 by Peter Goodwin (£32.00)Publisher: London: Conway Maritime Press — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0851777422]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Knocked at the bottom corner of the upper board otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: 2002] Jacket illustration: Nelson's Flagships at Anchor, 1807 by Nicholas Pocock. This is a composite image of Nelson's flagships at the Spithead anchorage painted in 1807. From left to right, Agamemnon, Vanguard (showing her broadside), stern view of Elephant flying the flag of Vice-Admiral of the Blue, Captain and then Victory firing a salute and flying the flag of Vice-Admiral of the White. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Much has been written about Nelson, the man and his successful career from midshipman to great commander, culminating with his glorious death at the Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805. Added to this, considerable literary works have been published about his flagship at that famous battle, HMS Victory, but little has been written about the other vessels in which he served throughout his career, providing him with experience vital to his professional and personal development.

Beginning with HMS Raisonnable, the 3rd Rate 64-gun ship in which Nelson began his naval career at the start of 1771, Nelson’s Ships provides a service history of the 25 Royal Navy vessels in which Nelson served. All the famous ships-of-the-line are included: Agamemnon, the vessel of which he assumed command in 1793, Captain, which he commanded at Cape St. Vincent, Vanguard, flagship at the Nile and of course Victory. For the first time many of the smaller ships Nelson served in such as Carcass, Badger and La Minerve, are examined. A final chapter is devoted to the 12 ships in which Nelson served only for a very brief period of time.

A comprehensive background to each vessel is provided examining the design, construction and armament. A full service history then follows including the actions in which the ship participated, any modifications that were made, refit histories and costs, a complete list of the commanding officers of the ship and finally the ship’s ultimate fate. Numerous illustrations, superb plans and draughts specially drawn by the author, and a lavish colour artwork section complements the text.

The incidents that occurred whilst Nelson was on board each ship reveal an abridged version of his career and offer both the enthusiast and general reader an insight into the man himself. Utilising the ships’ logs allows the work to examine many important issues in Nelson’s navy such as victualling and health, discipline and punishment, ship handling and repair thus providing a fascinating insight into the reality of life at sea and disproving many of the myths surrounding the Georgian navy. Fully researched and developed by one of the most well known and respected Nelson historians, Nelson’s Ships is an invaluable work for both the academic and enthusiast alike.”

In Search of the Maquis: Rural Resistance in Southern France, 1942-1944 by H. R. [Harry Roderick] Kedward (£27.00)Publisher: Oxford: Clarendon Press — 2003Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0198205783]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps;

From the cover: “In Search of the Maquis is a study of the maquis in southern France, the Resisters who took to the woods and hills in the struggle against the German Occupation in the Second World War. Edward’s detailed and perceptive account explores what participation in the maquis meant for those involved, both at the time and subsequently. He examines the motivations of the maquisards and how the circumstances of occupation and resistance affected the ways of life of rural communities in the south of France.

This is a rich and original book which achieves a fruitful integration of extensive archival research and oral history. Professor Kedward’s scholarly and readable history allows the voices of individuals to be heard, and offers us important insights into the nature of community and regional tradition. From the many fascinating and moving individual stories emerge a sense of place, a clearer understanding of the maquisard, and an unsentimental assessment of the role of the maquis in French history.”

All the Kaiser's Men: The Life and Death of the German Army on the Western Front by Ian Passingham (£26.00)Publisher: Stroud: Sutton Publishing — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0750928816]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Convinced that both God and the Kaiser were on their side, the officers and men of the German Army went to war in 1914, confident that they were destined for a swift and crushing victory in the West. The vaunted Schlieffen Plan on which the anticipated German victory was based expected triumph in the West to be followed by an equally decisive success on the Eastern Front. It was not to be. From the winter of 1914 until the early months of 1918, the struggle on the Western Front was characterised by trench warfare. But our perception of the conflict takes little or no account of the realities of life ‘across the wire’ in the German front line.

Comprehensively illustrated with original photographs, maps and archival material, All The Kaiser’s Men sets the record straight. It examines the German Army’s strategy and tactics throughout the war, from the commanding generals to the ordinary soldiers at the front, and looks in depth at the implications of the Allied naval blockade and the increasing problems of food and fuel shortages in Germany.

This important new book fills a significant gap in First World War historiography and will help both the casual reader and serious student gain a wider perspective of the war on the Western Front. “

Francesco's Venice: The Dramatic History of the World's Most Beautiful City by Francesco Da Mosto (£24.00)Publisher: London: BBC Books — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0563521376]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour photographs; Photographic end papers & blanks;

From the cover: “Francesco’s Venice is the extraordinary story of the life of this intriguing city, told by a descendant of an old and distinguished Venetian family.

Francesco da Mosto’s ancestral history is inextricably intertwined with that of this amphibious city. Fiercely proud and protective of the rich cultural and architectural heritage of his birthplace, Francesco gives us a unique insight into the inner workings of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. He explores Venice’s remarkable history, from the fifth century when the first settlers retreated to the safety of the lagoon and began to create their homes on its tiny islands, through its glorious years as a successful maritime nation, adept at trade, exploration, diplomacy and protecting its independence, to the fragile city of the twenty-first century.

Venice’s history is a tale of warfare and conspiracies, of artistic excellence and ingenuity, of the battle of wills and of ideas, and of strength in the face of disaster, and Francesco vividly brings to life the places, events and people that have sculpted this living theatre through the ages. These include a colourful array of his own ancestors, such as the six da Mostos who were involved in the rise and fall of the ambitious and corrupt Doge Falier, and the young Alvise da Mosto, a courageous and determined explorer of the fifteenth century.

Beautifully illustrated with stunning images by John Parker of both the magnificent symbols of the city, including St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, and the more secluded corners, Francesco’s Venice celebrates the mesmerizing beauty and surprising strength of this unique city.”
