Addison, Paul ~ Churchill : The Unexpected Hero ~ Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005 ~ 5½” x 8¾”. [xi] + 308pp. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "During the Second World War, Winston Churchill won two resounding victories. The first was a victory over Nazi Germany, the second a victory over the legion of sceptics who had derided his judgement, denied his claims to greatness, and excluded him from high office on the grounds that he was sure to be a danger to King and Country. Churchill was the only British politician of the twentieth century to become an enduring national hero. The curious thing is that it happened at the age of 65, at a time when he was considered to be a spent force, with a track-record of disastrous decisions. All but the most hostile of his adversaries conceded that he possessed great abilities, remarkable eloquence, and a streak of genius. But it was almost universally agreed that he was a shameless egotist, an opportunist without principles or convictions, an unreliable colleague, an erratic policy-maker who lacked judgement, and a reckless amateur strategist with a dangerous passion for war and bloodshed. At one time or another in his career, he had offended every party and faction in the land, yet despite this he became the embodiment of national unity, an uncrowned king who threatened to eclipse the monarchy. In this incisive new biography, Paul Addison tells the story of Churchill's life in parallel with the history of his reputation. He seeks to explain why Churchill was transformed into a national hero, and why his heroic status has endured ever since in spite of the attempts of iconoclasts to debunk him. He argues that we are now in a position to reach beyond the mythology - both positive and negative - to see the real Winston Churchill, a warrior-statesman whose qualities were remarkably consistent through all the vicissitudes of his career." ~ 6170 ~ £18.00

Allen, Martin ~ Himmler's Secret War : The Covert Peace Negotiations of Heinrich Himmler ~ London: Robson Books, 2005 ~ 6¼” x 9½”. [xx] + 300pp, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Ever since the end of the Second World War, the name of Heinrich Himmler - the pedantic fanatic who was responsible more than any other man for the murder of millions in the name of racial purity - has been synonymous with all that was evil in Nazi Germany. Yet there was far more to Himmler's character than being Germany's Reichfuhrer-SS. Martin Allen's access to previously reticent individuals including several top Nazis and Himmler's daughter, in conjunction with newly discovered documents in British and American archives, has revealed a remarkable story with numerous explosive revelations. Martin Allen has not only informed the life of Himmler with startling new facts and perspectives, he presents the entire Nazi command in a totally new light, in which Hitler was often manipulated and sometimes sidelined. In his manoeuvring to lead post-war Germany, Himmler believed that through an intermediary he was in direct contact with Winston Churchill, and is linked to the bomb that nearly killed Hitler in 1944, a decision to largely halt the mass extermination of Jews from Autumn 1944, and the surrender of all German forces in northern Italy and other events which reduced the length of the war. Most dramatic of all is previously unseen evidence that sheds new light on the circumstances of Himmler's death. ~ 6178 ~ £24.00

Red cloth gilt in d/j, As New. The British-ruled territories from India to Singapore appeared in the early stages of the Second World War to be an asset in the war with Germany, providing soldiers and raw materials in a network denied to the Nazis. In 1941-2 a Japanese invasion had destroyed all this, taking Singapore with its 80,000 strong garrison, and sweeping through South and Southeast Asia to the frontier of India itself. This book is the story of the birth of modern South and Southeast Asia and the hopes and fears of the dozens of 'forgotten armies' marching through the jungle battlefields. ~ 6591 ~ £30.00

The Spanish civil war tore the country apart between 1936 and 1939. It attracted liberals and socialists from across the world to support the cause against Franco, and was one of the most hard-fought and bitterest conflicts of the 20th century. It was a war of atrocities and political genocide, and a military testing ground for the Russians, Italians and Germans, whose Condor Legion so notoriously destroyed Guernica. Beevor draws on masses of newly-discovered material from the Spanish, Russian and German archives, succeeding in unravelling the complex political and regional forces that played such an important part in the origins of the war. ~ 6818 ~ £30.00

Beevor, Antony ~ Stalingrad ~ London: Viking, 1998 ~ 6" x 9½". [xvii] + 494pp, maps, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "Early on the morning of 23 August 1942, the 16th Panzer Division raced eastwards over the steppe from the river Don. That same evening, it halted on the bank of the Volga. The tank crews gazed across towards Asia. They had reached the designated boundary of the Third Reich's eastern territories. Messerschmitt fighters performed victory rolls above their heads. Many soldiers thought the war was won. To their right, the city of Stalingrad blazed from the first of General von Richtofen's air raids, which killed 40,000 civilians. The only resistance the panzer crews faced came from anti-aircraft guns manned by young women barely out of high school. 'We had to fight shot for shot,' the division reported, 'against thirty-seven flak positions manned by tenacious fighting women until they were all destroyed.' Thus began the most pitiless, and perhaps the most important, battle in history." ~ 417 ~ £32.00

From 1899 to 1902 during the Boer War Birdwood served as military secretary on the staff of General Lord Kitchener, beginning a close association that continued in India while Kitchener was Commander-in-Chief, India. After graduating from the Royal Military College, Birdwood was transferred to the Indian Cavalry, where he served in the 12th Lancers and Bengal Lancers. He was married in 1894 and promoted to Captain in 1896. He served on Lord Kitchner's Staff during the Boer War and was promoted to Major in 1900. During the war he was Mentioned in Dispatches five times. He held the post of Quartermaster-General in India and was promoted to the rank of Major General in 1911.

Black cloth blocked in red, in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "In 1940 the U.S. Army Signal Intelligence Service broke the Japanese diplomatic code. In 1975 Oshima Hiroshi, Japan's ambassador to Berlin during World War II, died, never knowing that the hundreds of messages he transmitted to Tokyo had been fully decoded by the Americans and whisked off to Washington. Now Carl Boyd resurrects Oshima's decoded communications, which had remained classified for several decades. In them Oshima reveals the thought and strategies of Adolf Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis, with whom he associated. In addition to providing illuminating insight into Nazi activities and attitudes - military buildup in North Africa, the unwillingness to accept a separate peace with the Soviets - Boyd illustrates the functions of MAGIC. He demonstrates how that intelligence, gathered by teams of American cryptographers, influenced Allied strategy and helped bring about the downfall of Hitler and his Japanese confidant." ~ 577 ~ £50.00

""When is this awful nightmare to end?" was the question in countless people's minds at the beginning of 1918. But by November a young infantryman in France could write "I feel as if a great black cloud has been lifted from the world, and that the sun is shining again for the first time for years." The dramatic series of events that produced the astonishing change of mood reflected in those quotations is the subject of this new volume by distinguished military historian Malcolm Brown -- a volume which provides the authentic voice of the British soldier in 1918. Published on the 80th anniversary of the Armistice, it tells the story of a year which, Malcolm argues, has been unduly neglected in favour of its more famous predecessors, the years of the Somme and Passchendaele. Yet the casualty lists were longer in 1918, and never was there a year with more remarkable turns of fortune and intensity of action. At one time there was a serious fear that Britain might have to evacuate her troops from the continent and that the war would be lost. Only a matter of weeks later, however, Germany's armies were retreating in disarray and her leaders were suing for peace. A Tank Corps officer wrote home on Armistice Day: "The long looked for, worked for and prayed for victory has been achieved, and the downfall of wrong and the triumph of right are assured. Truly these are wondrous days." Sadly the peace so long fought for proved illusory, and a generation later a second war replayed, to a substantial extent, the scenario of the first. "However", Malcolm Brown writes, "The shadow of subsequent events should not cloud the outstanding achievements of the men who brought the so-called "Great War" to a brilliantly successful conclusion in 1918." ~ 320 ~ £20.00

Danchev, Alex ~ Alchemist of War : The Life of Basil Liddell Hart ~ London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1998 ~ 6¼" x 9½". [xiv] + 369pp, illustrations. Green cloth gilt in d/j, Fine. "Basil Liddell Hart was a rare bird: military writer, creative artist, journalist, propagandist, controversialist, archivist, adviser, exemplar, and thrower of stones. A war poet in prose -- his best work carried a comparable charge -- his writing engaged and enraged three generations. Like a true poet, his voice lingers. His language and his leanings saturate later thought, often unwittingly. Liddell Hart is the Bertrand Russell of his field: he is all-pervasive. Young people who looked up to him (in every sense) were often reminded of a stork -- benign, fastidious, outlandish, perhaps even a little comic; undeniably impressive. He dressed well. He dined well. He tipped well. He consorted with Lawrence of Arabia. His womenfolk looked enchanting: he chose their clothes. For the Captain who taught Generals was expert in more fields than one. He was also a leading authority on fashion -- in particular, the corset. Liddell Hart had a sophisticated appreciation of "l'artillerie de nuit". Like all great artists, his best ideas were other people's, made matchlessly his own. "Alchemist of War: The Life of Basil Liddell Hart" is the first biography of this remarkable man: a brilliant evocation of a life more succulent, and more subversive, than we ever knew." Liddell Hart, no warrior, dwelt all his life on war. He abominated its waste, deplored its unreasonableness, but amended the classical dictum as one of his own -- if you wish for peace, understand war. Although his name is synonymous with military thought and military controversy, throughout his career he appeared in a succession of different guises: chronicler, biographer, philosopher, epistoler, agitator, seer. He was variously revered and reviled. He advised Lloyd George, among others, and antagonised Winston Churchill. Liddell Hart had been long in the fore front of scientific historians, strategic and international affairs. His books, articles, papers, lectures and his columns as the Military Correspondent and a lead writer of "The Times" had given him international status. His views were being canvassed the world over and, of more sinister application, his advanced, revolutionary teachings on armored warfare were being given practical rehearsal in Germany. Gen. Heinz Guderian said of him: "The theoretical originator of mechanized warfare. I was one of his disciples". Throughout the 1920s and the 1930s his views on future warfare had often been rejected as impracticable in his own country -- only to be adopted by her enemies. ~ 4127 ~ £40.00

From the dust-jacket: "The fall of Singapore to the Japanese in February 1942 was a landmark in modern Asian history; it was also one of the lowest points in British fortunes in the Second World War. "Odd Man Out" tells the story of a spy in the British forces in Malaya, an officer, whose treacherous activities played a significant part in the Japanese victory. Although the Japanese would still have taken Malaya without his assistance, the information he provided, particularly about aircraft movements, helped their two-month Blitzkrieg immeasurably. Because of the chaos and disorganisation of the time, and an official blackout on the affair for reasons of morale, there are no government files surviving. However, the narrative builds up, through diligent research and help from contemporaries, a fascinating account which extends back to the spy's birth in New Zealand and his none-too-easy schooldays in England. He then worked for a well established London firm before obtaining a Supplementary Reserve commission which led to his joining an Indian Army regiment, to action on the North-West Frontier and in 1940, to a posting in Malaya. The authors relate a crucial 'long leave' he spent in Japan, in late 1938 and early 1939; and they describe in detective story style detail the spy's final days, his uncovering, his imprisonment, his court-martial and his death, all, of course, in the turmoil of Singapore's fall, from where extraordinary tales emerge of demoralisation and desertion among Australian units, controversial even to this day. This 'story of the Singapore traitor' is not only a remarkable account of espionage and what can lead a man to it, but also an astonishing one to come to light just over fifty years after the final events." ~ 5586 ~ £32.00

Farrell, Brian P. ~ The Defence and Fall of Singapore 1941-42 ~ Stroud, Gloucestershire: Tempus Publishing Ltd, 2005 ~ 6” x 9½”. 447pp, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Shortly after midnight on the 8 December 1941, two divisions of crack troops of the Imperial Japanese Army began a seaborne invasion of southern Thailand and northern Malaya. Their assault developed into a full-blown advance towards Singapore, the main defensive position of the British Empire in the Far East. The defending British, Indian, Australian and Malayan forces were out manoeuvred on the ground, overwhelmed in the air and scattered on the sea. By the end of January British Empire forces were driven back onto the island of Singapore itself, cut off from further outside help. When the Japanese stormed the island with an all-out assault, the defenders were quickly pushed back into a corner from which there was no escape. Singapore’s defenders capitulated on February 15th, to prevent the wholesale pillage of the city itself. Their rapid and total defeat was nothing less than military humiliation and political disaster. The surrender of Singapore was described by Winston Churchill as "the worst disaster and largest capitulation in British military history." Based on the most extensive use yet of primary documents in Britain, Japan, Australia, and Singapore, Brian Farrell provides the fullest picture of how and why Singapore fell and its real significance to the outcome of the Second World War.  ~ 6840 ~ £36.00

Gardner, Brian ~ Allenby ~ London: Cassell and Company Ltd, 1965 ~ 5½" x 8½". [xx] + 314pp, portrait frontis, illustrations. Red cloth gilt in a scuffed and rubbed d/j, otherwise Very Good. Field-Marshal Viscount Edmund Hynman "Bull" Allenby (1861-1936), a cavalryman with a massive frame and ferocious temper, fought in the Boer War as a Major in the Inniskilling Dragoons. In World War I, he served on the Western Front, first commanding a cavalry division, then the Third Army. On 28 June 1917, he became C-in-C of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force and later the High Commissioner of Egypt. Allenby was a First World War commander who won battles. He was the General who liberated Jerusalem in December 1917. For this effort he became a public hero. He won further battles in 1918 when, after a dazzling campaign, he conquered Syria and Lebanon. He had succeeded where Richard the Lionheart had failed, but his glory faded and he was superceded in the public imagination by his enigmatic protégé T. E. Lawrence. Allenby was a Victorian gentleman who made a name for himself hunting down Boer guerillas. Success in the small wars of empire qualified him for high command on the Western Front, where he foundered trying to come to terms with the new technological warfare. Addicted to suicidal offensives, Allenby was dismissed by Haig when it became clear that he no longer trusted Haig's judgements. This proved to be a blessing for he was transferred in 1917 to the Middle East where his unused talents were released. Allenby was an intriguing mass of contradictions. In private he was a gentle husband and father and a keen and well informed naturalist who loved poetry and intelligent conversation; in public he was the "bull", a short-tempered martinet who browbeat his subordinates and once, when asked to withdraw soldiers because the offensive was futile, barked, "What the hell does that matter. There are plenty more men in England!". "Allenby was that rare creature, a general who ever wrote his memoirs. Is this the reason why the soldier who had walked in triumph into Jerusalem in 1917 as church bells sounded all over the Christian world would be dismissed 45 years later as the man who assisted [T. E.] Lawrence in the Palestine Campaign? Clearly an accurate appraisal of Allenby's greatness is more than overdue. Some thousands of his memoranda, notes, telegrams, speeches and letters, the vast majority hitherto unpublished, have now been put at Brian Gardner's disposal. The resulting portrait is an astounding one. His explosive temper and decisive confidence in action inspired respect, admiration, fear or acute dislike in his staff and men. But through his private and essential personality ran one of the deepest veins of conscientiousness in British history; in an extraordinarily  eloquent series of letters to his wife from South Africa, Flanders and Palestine, Allenby and an unclouded ability to discern the fundamental cruelty and pity of war. Allenby hated war, but his career was forged from the mistakes of others. Out of his direct experience of the incompetence, stubbornness and sheer stupidity that marked the British commanders' handling of the Boer and Great Wars grew a determination to instill common sense, imagination and thoroughness into military strategy. His integrity and courage on the Western Front led directly to the most significant appointment of his career; his command in the Palestine Campaign. As the consummation of a military career it was perfect: daring, ingenious and a complete expression of original thinking. Yet Allenby's greatest task was still to come, as High Commissioner of Egypt. Within fourteen days of his appointment he had effected a complete reversal of the political situation in the Protectorate, and the relentless duel that followed between a visionary statesman and a dismayed but tough British Government constitutes one of the most electrifying moments in the history of British overseas administration."  ~ 4176 ~ £32.00

[xviii] + 297pp, map, illustrations. Grey boards in d/j, As New. When it comes to the Balkans, most people quickly become lost in the quagmire of struggle and intractable hatred that consumes that ancient land today. Many assume that the genesis of the past ten years of atrocity in the region might have had something to do with Tito and his repressive Yugoslav regime, or perhaps with the assassination of Franz Ferdinand in 1914. The seeds were really planted much, much earlier, on a desolate plain in Kosovo in 1389, when the Serbian Prince Lazar and his army clashed with and were defeated by the Ottoman forces of Sultan Murad I.In this riveting new history of the Balkan peoples, André Gerolymatos explores how ancient events engendered cultural myths that evolved over time, gaining psychic strength in the collective consciousnesses of Orthodox Christians and Muslims alike. In colorful detail, we meet the key figures that instigated and perpetuated these myths-including the assassin/heroes Milos Obolic and Gavrilo Princip and the warlord Ali Pasha. This lively survey of centuries of strife finally puts the modern conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo into historical context, and provides a long overdue account of the origins of ethnic hatred and warmongering in this turbulent land. ~ 5986 ~ £20.00

Hale, Christopher ~ Himmler's Crusade : The True Story of the 1938 Nazi Expedition into Tibet ~ London: Bantam Press, 2003 ~ 6¼” x 9½”. [xix] + 422pp, maps, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Christopher Hale’s gripping and well-researched tale of an SS-sponsored scientific mission to Tibet in 1938-39 has the whole shebang: mad occult beliefs, mountains, strange characters called Bruno or Ernst and stomach-churning concentration camp experiments to round things off. In 1935, the Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler founded an organisation called Ancestral Heritage to uncover the hidden past of an imaginary Aryan race he and his Führer regarded as the noblest and most vital force in human history. That fact that there had never been an Aryan race — a philological category (the Indo-Germanic language group) had been construed into a “people” — was no impediment to someone who also believed Aryans had been unleashed on the world after divine thunderbolts shattered the primordial ice in which they were imprisoned. Himmler was also pretty keen to find gold in the river Isar or a red horse with a white mane, but that need not detain us. Ancestral Heritage became a magnet for cranks (one senior figure was interested in establishing whether Tibetan women hid magical stones in their vaginas) and ambitious young scientists who were moving too slowly up the academic career ladder — notwithstanding the number of Jews that Nazi scholars and students had thrown off it to make their ascent quicker. The claim that Sanskrit underlay most modern languages focused 19th-century minds on the general area of northern India and Tibet as the ancestral home of the mythical Aryans. Hence one of the scientific missions Himmler sponsored was a multitasked expedition to Tibet under the leadership of ornithologist Ernst Schäfer. An expert on rare Tibetan birds, Schäfer was a fanatical hunter who liked smearing the blood of exotic kills on his craggy features. This enthusiasm, manifest in boyhood when Schäfer killed rats in the cellar with a catapult, was undiminished by the fact that while on a duck-shoot in 1937 he managed to trip over, inadvertently blowing his young bride Hertha’s brains out. Schäfer recruited an anthropologist, Bruno Beger, to measure noses and skulls and to make face-masks; a geographer who specialised in the earth’s geomagnetism; and a botanist who was also handy with a film camera. Once they had conned their way into Tibet, past the British — who thought they were spies — there were some comic moments. Their mules were decorated with fluttering swastika pennants — superfluous in a society where that symbol of good fortune is ubiquitous. The first attempt at making a gypsum mask failed when the poor Tibetan subject had an epileptic seizure and nearly choked to death inside the white plaster blob that sat on his shuddering shoulders. When Schäfer decided to commemorate the death of his wife by going onto a ridge to fire a symbolic shot, he forgot to remove the cleaning brush so the breech exploded, throwing him off his feet and burning his face with gunpowder. All sorts of rare creatures, whether eagles or animals that look like rugs with horns, paid for that indignity as the mad explorer blasted anything with a pulse. The ulterior purpose of the expedition echoed the ancient historian Tacitus’s treatise Germania, in which he ascribed to the primitive German tribesmen virtues his Roman contemporaries had long lost. The Nazi scientists sought to show that the Tibetan theocracy had destroyed the vitality of an earlier warrior culture, as Christianity had supposedly had an emasculating effect on the ancient pagan Germans. To clinch the point, the team dwelt on homosexuality among Buddhist clergy — precisely the aspersion they were using in Germany against Catholic monks and nuns they were persecuting. Anti-Catholicism was as pervasive as racism among the Nazi leadership, although Hale is possibly unaware that this was more inspired by mainstream liberal Protestant theology than by Himmler’s idiosyncratic neo-paganism. On returning to Germany, Schäfer was feted by Himmler and appointed head of an institute for Central Asian research in Munich. His career was not blighted by the fact that, when on an overnight sleeper to Berlin in June 1942, Schäfer had tried to strangle the man who shared his compartment. Munich meant proximity to the more lethal aspects of Ancestral Heritage, since the camp in suburban Dachau was where its scientists conducted experiments on human beings on behalf of the German armed forces. The man who filmed the Tibet expedition was soon recording people turning blue in freezing water or choking in decompression chambers used to solve high-altitude problems for the Luftwaffe. The expedition’s erstwhile anthropologist was subsequently deployed acquiring the skeletons and skulls of prisoners in Auschwitz for an anatomical institute in Strasbourg. ~ 4954 ~ £28.00

During World War Two the Special Operation Executive's French Section sent more than 400 agents into Occupied France -- at least 100 never returned and were reported 'Missing Believed Dead' after the war. Twelve of these were women who died in German concentration camps -- some were tortured, some were shot, and some died in the gas chambers. Vera Atkins had helped prepare these women for their missions, and when the war was over she went out to Germany to find out what happened to them and the other agents lost behind enemy lines. But while the woman who carried out this extraordinary mission appeared quintessentially English, she was nothing of the sort. Vera Atkins, who never married, covered her life in mystery so that even her closest family knew almost nothing of her past. In A LIFE IN SECRETS Sarah Helm has stripped away Vera's many veils and - - with unprecedented access to official and private papers, and the cooperation of Vera's relatives -- vividly reconstructed an extraordinary life. ~ 6834 ~ £20.00

[lviii] + 806pp, illustrations, maps within text and maps as end-papers. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. By June 1942, Britain had reached her lowest ebb. Her military command was in tatters, her armies beaten, and in the Middle East it seemed all might be lost. Her new ally, America, had only fledgling armed forces and was severely under-trained, yet it was this alliance of the weary combatant and naÏve newcomer, coming together for the first time in North Africa, that would eventually bring about the defeat of Nazi Germany. This crucial period – from defeat at Gazala through to the victories of Alamein and ultimately in Tunisia – was a time of learning for the Allies, yet by the end Britain and America had finally gained material and certain tactical advantages over Germany, particularly in the air warfare. As this book shows, the development of a tactical air force – principles that are still used to this day – were founded over the skies of North Africa. When the Axis forces were finally driven from North Africa in May 1943, over 250,000 Axis troops were taken prisoner, more than had surrendered to the Russians at Stalingrad. It was a major victory and a crucial steppingstone to the future invasion of Italy and France. In this new reappraisal, James Holland also interweaves the personal stories of the men – and women – who made up these polyglot Allied forces: British and American, Nepalese and Punjabi, South African and Australian, Maori and Zulu, from all ranks and all services. From the heat and dust of the Western Desert to the mud and mountains of Northern Tunisia, this book charts the extraordinary first days of an Alliance that has worked together ever since. ~ 6208 ~ £28.00

Black boards blocked in silver in a rubbed d/j, otherwise Near Fine. This title provides an account of the reality of what it is to be a soldier, by one of Britain's foremost military historians. This ambitious, wide-ranging, exhaustively researched book is a compelling attempt to grasp the very nature of war. It takes us through the soldier's experience in its entirety - from the humiliation of basic training and the intense comradeship of army life, to the terror, isolation and exhaustion of battle. What does it feel like to be in the firing line? How does killing change a man? And what do the extreme conditions of war reveal about a man's basic instincts, his courage or his fear, his urge for self-preservation or self-sacrifice? Covering several centuries of warfare, and including the personal recollections of veterans from two World Wars, from Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands and the Arab-Israeli conflicts, Richard Holmes gives us a powerful picture of what motivates the soldier and enables him to maintain the struggle in conditions of extreme degradation and danger. ~ 6827 ~ £20.00

Paperback, page edges yellowed otherwise Very Good Plus. "The Algerian war was at once the last of the grand-style "colonial wars" and the archetype of the horribly savage new conflicts -- undeclared wars between old and third worlds -- waged successfully by urban terrorists and country-based guerrillas against crack modern armies, with mutilation and torture used by both sides. At the end of this 8 year struggle, more than 1,000,000 Algerian Muslims had lost their lives and an equal number of Europeans had lost their homes. It was a tragedy rife with lessons Americans had to learn all over again for themselves in Vietnam. Alistair Horne presents the first full history of the Algerian war, from the All-Saints-Day rebellion of 1 November 1954, to the election of an independent Algerian government in July 1962. He masterfully weaves the complex strands of this story into a narrative of relentless fascination; the war itself in all its military and political aspects; the constant struggles within the F.L.N.; the profound revolution within Algerian Muslim society; the revolution in the French army in Algeria; the near civil war among the Europeans in Algeria, which culminated in the horrors of the O.A.S. and which threatened to spill over into Metropolitan France. The resolution of the war moves into the external political arena -- on the rostrum of the United Nations and platforms of the Third World and in the councils of both Western and Eastern blocs. The diverse protagonists emerge in extraordinary depth -- Ben Bella, De Gaulle, Salan, Massu -- as do all the victims, dupes, zealots, snakes, and heroes who surrounded them. The portraits are drawn with authority born of exhaustive and far-reaching research, which took Horne to the archives and participants in France and, far more difficult, Algeria. As the Third World continues to make its aspirations felt, and established political powers continue to maintain an order they have struggled to impose -- often at great cost -- the story of Algeria's fight for independence will stand as model and prophecy. "A Savage war of Peace" is the definitive history of that prophetic war." ~ 5855 ~ £12.00

[xv] + 538pp, portrait frontis, maps. Blue cloth gilt in d/j, As New. The publication of Victor Klemperer's diaries brings to light one of the most extraordinary documents of the Nazi period. The son of a rabbi, Klemperer was by 1933 a professor of languages in Dresden. Over the next decade he, like other German Jews, lost his job, his house and many of his friends, even his cat, as Jews were not allowed to own pets. He remained loyal to his country, determined not to emigrate, and convinced that each successive Nazi act against the Jews must be the last. Saved for much of the war from the Holocaust by his marriage to a gentile, he was able to escape in the aftermath of the Allied bombing of Dresden and survived the remaining months of the war in hiding. Throughout, Klemperer kept a diary, for a Jew in Nazi Germany a daring act in itself. Shocking and moving by turns, it is a remarkable and important document, as powerful and astonishing in its way as Anne Frank's classic. The second volume of two, this covers the period from the beginnings of the Holocaust to the end of the war, telling the story of Klemperer's increasing isolation, his near miraculous survival, his awareness of the development of the growing Holocaust as friends and associates disappeared, and his narrow escapes from deportation and the Dresden firebombing in 1945. ~ 1491 ~ £36.00

Lawrence made an abridgement of "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" in order to pay the exorbitant cost (over £13,000) for the lavish illustrations he had done for the 1926 limited ("Cranwell" or "Subscriber") edition of "Seven Pillars of Wisdom". TE called "Revolt in the Desert" his "boy scout book" and he, an R.A.F. airman at the time, used the excess profits to establish the anonymous R.A.F. Memorial Fund. After his death the fund was renamed "The Lawrence of Arabia Fund" and is still active to this day. This is the book that put Jonathan Cape on the map as a publisher and they were able to move to more prestigious quarters in Bedford Square. The first trade edition of "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" was not published until after TE's death; 8 years later in 1935. Cyril Fall ("War Books") gave the book three stars and wrote: "If we question the best thinkers in the higher ranks of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force about the book's broader aspects, they are at least prepared to testify to the genius and vast services rendered by the author. There can be no doubt to-day of the immense aid given to Lord Allenby by the Arabs, and little doubt that Lawrence more than any other man -- out of a very brilliant team -- was responsible for that aid. The book belongs to the select top shelf of war literature. We need say nothing here of the larger version, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom", for that is not generally accessible, and the reader may rest assured that he has all the best here." ~ 3563 ~ £150.00

Red cloth gilt in a scuffed and rubbed d/j, covers rubbed otherwise Very Good. Fitzroy Maclean entered the Diplomatic Service in 1933 and served at the Foreign Office and Embassies in Paris and Moscow. From Moscow he travelled widely in Central Asia and the Caucasus. After the outbreak of war he enlisted as a private in the Cameron Highlanders. He was commissioned in the same regiment in 1941 and was sent soon afterwards to the Middle East. There he joined David Stirling's Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment, the first parachute unit to be formed in that theatre, and took part in its famous operations behind the enemy's lines in the Western Desert. He was promoted Captain in 1942 and Lieutenant-Colonel in 1943. In the latter year he was dropped by parachute in German-occupied Yugoslavia as Brigadier commanding the British Military Mission to the Partisans. He remained there until 1945. "A man in his more romantic moments might imagine himself in many strange and exciting situations. He might see himself heading through sub-tropical jungle or the Russian-Persian border, hotly pursued by Soviet border guards; entering the walled city of Bokhara on foot, by moonlight, preceded by a string of dromedaries and followed by a pair of OGPU agents; probing the secrets of the Moscow State Trials; climbing the Mountains of Heaven and crossing the Oxus. Or he might see himself giving up a promising career in the Diplomatic Service to enlist in a Highland regiment; then skirmishing in the Libyan desert; crossing the Sand Sea in a jeep; masquerading as an enemy staff officer; turning out an enemy guard in an enemy held town hundreds of miles behind the lines; or kidnapping a General. In the space of a few years Fitzroy Maclean did all this and more. It was he who was dropped by parachute in German-occupied Europe, as Mr. Churchill's personal representative, to get in touch with a then mysterious guerilla leader known as Tito. he did so, and was soon planning widespread irregular operations in wild country never more than a few miles from the nearest German garrison, and helping to carry them out. After that he found himself acting as British Representative in the turmoil of Tito's newly liberated capital. Brigadier Maclean, adventurer, soldier and diplomatist, was once described by an ecstatic newspaperwoman as "a typical John Buchan hero." ~ 850 ~ £24.00

From the dust-jacket: "Who was Jean Moulin? According to the official version, he was the exiled General de Gaulle's emissary to the French Resistance movements during World War II and became the political head of the Resistance in 1943. He was captured in Lyons and tortured by the Gestapo, and is believed to have died a few days later without talking. After the war his ashes were transferred to the Pantheon - France's greatest honour. So much for the legend. But what is the truth of Jean Moulin? Patrick Marnham set out to write "an uncritical biography of a very brave man" but his research uncovered a far more fascinating and ambivalent figure. It took Marnham from the Provencal village where Jean Moulin spent his childhood, through the scenes of his career and his bohemian life as an artist in Montparnasse, right up to the doctor's room in Caluire where he was sitting when Klaus Barbie's Gestapo burst through the door and where, in 1987, Marnham interviewed the doctor himself. His biographical detection discloses a plot within a plot and summarizes the evidence as to who actually killed Jean Moulin. He also reveals how a heroic legend was manufactured to take the place of a heroic life." ~ 1931 ~ £30.00

"If ever, in any episode of modern times, the outraged and offended gods have played havoc with the plans of men, that episode was the Allied campaign against Gallipoli. What happened was this. Contrary to Allied expectations, the Turks went into the First World War on Germany's side. Winston Churchill, First Sea Lord in the British War Cabinet, conceived the plan of smashing through the Dardanelles with a few old ships of the British and French fleets, reopening the Straits to Russian shipping, and immobilizing the Turks. For years the Turks had been beaten in every battle they fought, and the great project stood a reasonable chance of success. The plan went through. The attempt was made. It almost succeeded. On the night of 18 March 1915, the Turks were virtually beaten. But the Allies did not know that. The naval assault on the Straits was not renewed and one of histories noblest tragedies was under way. In the months that followed, the campaign faltered, swelled and died -- subject always to political crises in London and the implacable hostility of fate. The net results were three small bridgeheads on Gallipoli and 250,000 Allied casualties. Those, briefly, were the bear facts. But the bare facts do not tell of the great army assembling at Lemnos, its young men, Rupert Brooke among them, going forward to meet their finest hour; the intrepid submarine commanders slipping through the Narrows in their primitive ships to shell the railway line of Constantinople; the fantastic Anzacs landing on the wrong beach and digging in (whence their name of Diggers); the incredible, almost perpetual failure of communications -- thanks to which messages from the Commander-in-Chief to the Corps commanders were never delivered, and 20,000 men in one sector of the front brewed tea while, six miles away, their comrades were being annihilated by Kemal's Turks; the sense of consecration and comradeship that persisted despite the inexperience and fumbling of commanders. In "Gallipoli" Alan Moorehead omits no detail of the maudlin waste, the physical horror, the sheer heartbreaking folly of 250,000 men committed to fight for impossible objectives with inadequate means on unknown, unmapped terrain. But with all of this, his book is essentially a celebration of the human spirit -- a sublime answer to "What is man that thou art mindful of him?" The wrongness of everything that had to do with the Gallipoli campaign serves only to throw into shining relief the superb rightness of the men who fought it. Moorehead's "Gallipoli" is a vivid chronicle of adventure, suspense, agony and heroism worth of those men." On 25 April 1915 the landings took place and included Australian (including the dismounted Light Horse), British, French (including the French Foreign Legion), Gurkha, Indian and New Zealand forces. From almost the start the assaults bogged down and the fighting turned into trench warfare. The Allies and Turks were matched pretty evenly (489,000 Allied & approximately 500,000 Turks).  The campaign dragged on for eight months before the Allies were finally evacuated, starting in mid-December 1916. The casualty figures were approximately 250,000 Allied and 250,000 Turkish. ~ 3804 ~ £48.00

From the Preface: "During the first few days of November 1914 Messines was lost -- in silence; during the first few days of June 1917 Messines was regained -- and the noise of its capture was heard in London. And during the two and a half years between these two events the game over the water has been going on. It hasn't changed very much in the time -- that game -- to the player. To those who look on, doubtless, the difference is enormous. Now they speak easily of millions where before they thought diffidently of thousands. But to the individual -- well, Messines is lost or Messines is won; and he is the performer. It is of those performers that I write: of the hole-and-corner work, of the little thumb-nail sketches which go to make up the big battle panels so ably depicted over the matutinal bacon and eggs. And as one privileged to assist at times in that hole-and-corner work, I offer these pages as a small tribute to those who have done so far more than I: to the men who have borne the burden of the days, the months, the years -- to the men who have saved the world -- to the Infantrymen." ~ 3635 ~ £40.00

The rescue in May 1940 of British soldiers fleeing capture and defeat by the Nazis at Dunkirk was not just about what happened at sea and on the beaches. The evacuation would never have succeeded had it not been for the tenacity of the British soldiers who stayed behind to ensure they got away. Men like Sergeant Major Gus Jennings who died smothering a German stick bomb in the church at Esquelbecq in an effort to save his comrades, and Captain Marcus Ervine-Andrews VC who single-handedly held back a German attack on the Dunkirk perimeter thereby allowing the British line to form up behind him. Told to stand and fight to the last man, these brave few battalions fought in whatever manner they could to buy precious time for the evacuation. Outnumbered and outgunned, they launched spectacular and heroic attacks time and again, despite ferocious fighting and the knowledge that for many only capture or death would end their struggle. ~ 6841 ~ £30.00

Red cloth gilt in d/j, As New. The Japanese had promised that there would be no Dunkirk in Singapore, and its fall led to imprisonment, torture, and death for thousands of allied men and women. With material from British, Australian, Indian and Japanese sources, this book offers the story of the fall of Singapore and its aftermath. Churchill's description of the fall of Singapore on 15 February 1942, after Lt-Gen Percival's surrender led to over 100,000 British, Australian, and Indian troops falling into the hands of the Japanese, was no wartime exaggeration. The Japanese had promised that there would be no Dunkirk in Singapore, and its fall led to imprisonment, torture, and death for thousands of allied men and women. With much new material from British, Australian, Indian and Japanese sources, Colin Smith has woven together the full and terrifying story of the fall of Singapore and its aftermath. Here, alongside cowardice and incompetence, are forgotten acts of enormous heroism; treachery yet heart-rending loyalty; Japanese compassion as well as brutality from the bravest and most capricious enemy the British ever had to face. ~ 6802 ~ £30.00

Tooze, Adam ~ The Wages of Destruction : The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy ~ London: Allen Lane (an imprint of Penguin Books), 2006 ~ 6” x 9½”. [xxvii] + 800pp, illustrations. Red cloth blocked in black in d/j, As New. The idea that Nazi Germany was an unstoppable juggernaut, backed up by a highly industrialised economy, has been central to all accounts of the Second World War. But waht if this was not the case? What if the tragedy of twentieth-century Europe had its roots in Germany's weakness, rather than in its strength? Adam Tooze has written the first radically new account of the Second World War in a generation. He does this by placing economics alongside race and politics at the heart of the story. An intuitive understanding of global economic realities was fundamental to Hitler's worldview. He understood that Germany's relative poverty in 1933 was the result not just of the Great Depression but also of its limited territory and natural resources. He predicted the dawning of a new, globalised world in which Europe would be crushed by America's overwhelming power. There was one last chance: a European super-state under German rule. But the global balance of economic and military power was from the outset heavily stacked against Hitler, and it was to forestall this danger from the West that he launched his under-resourced armies on their unprecedented and ultimately futile rampage across Europe. Even in the summer of 1940, at the moment of Germany's greatest triumph, HItler was still haunted by the looming threat of Anglo-American air and sea power, orchestrated, he believed, by the World Jewish conspiracy. Once the Wehrmacht ran aground in the Soviet Union, the war rapidly developed into a battle of attrition that Germany could not hope to win. The failure of Hitler, Albert Speer and others to admit this meant that the Third Reich was destroyed at the cost of tens of millions of lives. Adam Tooze's book is a gripping and chilling account of astonishing events, which will redefine our view of Nazi Germany and the Second World War. ~ 6835 ~ £30.00

In 70 days the Japanese 25th Army, with a strength of 60,000 men, advanced 600 miles down through Malaya, capturing a British army of 120,000 troops. Having spent nearly a year researching the techniques of tropical warfare, Colonel Tsuji, through meticulous planning and attention to detail, put together the plan to take Singapore which, as he emphasises, had no clear defences, a fact he states was unknown to Churchill." ~ 1271 ~ £36.00

Walker, Stephen ~ Shockwave: The Countdown to Hiroshima ~ London: John Murray, 2005 ~ 6” x 9½”. [xv] + 352pp, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Every account of the destruction of Hiroshima is dramatic, but historian and filmmaker Walker has created an exceptionally taut and revealing chronicle. By beginning with the first atomic bomb test in New Mexico on July 16, 1945, and documenting with cinematic selectivity and flow the key events of the next three weeks leading up to August 6, 1945, the day Little Boy was detonated above Hiroshima, he captures the mix of fury and ambition that drove the decision to deploy this barely understood weapon against a civilian population. With an unerring sense of striking detail and ironic juxtaposition, Walker cuts from the tension at Los Alamos to Potsdam--where Truman, Churchill, and Stalin met to decide Japan's fate--to the top-secret airbase on the tiny Pacific island of Tinian, from which the Enola Gay took flight. Here are sharp and searching close-ups of the bomb makers and the bomb's victims, including Taeko Nakamae, then a girl soldier, and a doctor, Shuntaro Hida, who both survived the apocalypse and share their horrific memories 60 years later. Walker brings a fresh, judicious perspective to the eternally shocking story of Hiroshima, which must be told and retold so that its terrible lessons are never forgotten. ~ 6812 ~ £24.00

Wilson, Dr A. G. [Complied and edited by Michael Wilson] ~ Peter : A Life Remembered 1894-1990 ~ Published in 1993 by Michael Wilson ~ 6” x 9½”. 284pp, illustrations. Grey cloth gilt in a scuffed and rubbed d/j, otherwise Very Good. Signed presentation copy by Michael Wilson (the Editor). Peter Wilson was well into his eighties when his family and friends persuaded him to write the story of his full and exciting life, mainly as a means of keeping him mentally active and interested following the death of his wife. His story begins nearly one hundred years ago in the village of Haxby in Yorkshire and gives some intriguing detail of country life and of his father's exploits in the hunting field, often with the York & Ainsty Hunt. By the time he was entering the job market, war clouds were looming and he volunteered for the Territorial Army, joining the West Yorkshire Regiment. His vivid accounts of life in the trenches in Flanders make fascinating reading and reveal how all the suffering he witnessed led him to a career in medicine. In 1916 he was severely wounded while in a Forward Observation Post during the battle of the Somme. After many months in hospital he found himself back in the trenches with his beloved West Yorkshire Regiment. However, his wounds would not heal completely, which led him to volunteer for the RFC in 1917. Hence another intriguing section of his memoirs — the war in the air. He won an MC for his reconnaissance work during the March Retreat. Upon demobilisation he put his vocation to the test and his memories as a medical student provide an insight into life at Oxford and St Thomas' hospital in the twenties. Finally he took up his life's work as a GP in Radlett, Hertfordshire, where he remained (apart from World War II) a much-loved physician until his retirement in 1969. It was his proud boast that he served his country from the first day to the last in both World Wars. ~ 6619 ~ £70.00

Wilt, Alan F. ~ Food For War : Agriculture and Rearmament in Britain Before the Second World War ~ Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2001 ~ 5½" x 8¾". [vi] + 262pp. Blue cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Food for War is a ground-breaking study of Britain's food and agricultural preparations in the 1930s as the nation once again made ready for war. Historians writing about 1930s Britain have usually focused on the Depression, appeasement, or political, military, and industrial concerns. None have dealt adequately with another significant topic, food and agriculture, as the nation moved, albeit reluctantly, from peace to war. In this new account, Alan F. Wilt makes right this omission by examining in depth the relationship between food, agriculture, and the nation's preparations for war. He reveals how food and agriculture became closely linked to rearmament as early as 1936; that the government's preparations in this sector, as contrasted with other areas of the economy, were relatively well-developed when war broke out in 1936; and that rural and farm interests well understood the effect that war would have on their way of life. He argues that food and agriculture need to be integrated into the more general historical discourse, for what happened in Britain in the 1930s not only set the stage for World War II, but also contributed to a more robust agriculture in the decades that followed. ~ 4150 ~ £60.00
