alphabetically by author

 

 

Listed below is my current stock in this subject, sorted in alphabetical order, by author. Please note that it is difficult to categorize some titles, which overlap different subjects; in these cases, the easiest procedure would be use the search box, which covers my entire stock. However, if searching for a particular title on this page only, the simplest method is to use "Control-F" to bring up the "Find" dialogue on screen. I have described the books as accurately as possible but will of course accept returns if a particular item is inadvertently not as described.

Educated Winchester & Balliol, Captain 1/1st  Cambridgeshires (TF): letters from France June 1915-Sept. 1916 when he was lost in action during a raid on German trenches near the Ancre. Arthur  Innes Adam, son of Adela Marion Adam, M.A., of Cambridge, and the late James Adam, Litt.D., was born in 1894, educated at Winchester and Balliol  College, Oxford, commissioned (after some delay due to his poor eyesight) in the Cambridgeshire Regiment (T.F.) in 1914, became a Captain in the  1/1st Battalion and was killed in action aged twenty-two on 16th September 1916 when he was reported lost (apparently wounded and captured)  during a raid on German trenches near the Ancre. Subsequently his remains were located and he is buried in Achiet-le-Grand Communal Cemetery  Extension. ? Contains interesting and quite detailed letters from France June 1915-September 1916, together with reports of his wounding and  capture. He was apparently “peculiarly devoid of nerves” and seems to have taken a practical and at times light-hearted approach to the proceedings.  Soon after arriving he wrote “I have a great scheme to annoy the Deutsches in contemplation, i.e., to tie a large alarm clock to the wire in front of  their trenches sometime by night, set it to 6 a.m. or some such time. That might persuade them to put their heads over the top…” Later he wrote of  want of munitions: “I think the most urgent need in this land is bombs; hosts of them, of all shapes and sizes, and among them rifle grenades which  will carry 500 yards like the German, instead of only 250…” Some months later, after his Company had suffered fourteen casualties during a tour in  the trenches, his enthusiasm was somewhat diluted: “I felt a quite new hatred of war and all its ways, and also an even stronger desire than aforetime  to get out of company commanding.”   £175.00 Military History

16664     Bales, Capt. P. G. [Formerly Adjutant of the Battalion]     The History of the 1/4th Battalion Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment, 1914-1919 London and Halifax: Edward Mortimer Ltd, 1920               6¼” x 9½”. (xi) + 314pp, frontis, maps, illustrations. Red cloth gilt, no d/j, covers rubbed, head of spine snagged, previous owner's name inscribed,  otherwise Very Good. This is a very good and informative history of a Territorial battalion during the Great War, written by an officer who served in it as  Intelligence Officer, Assistant Adjutant and Adjutant and who for more than two years was responsible for keeping the War Diary. He has made good use  of this responsibility and in a series of appendices has produced the sort of detail not often seen in a battalion or regimental history. There is the battalion  itinerary which charts every movement and location with dates from 4th August 1914 to 19th June 1919 with explanatory notes and comments, such as:  "28.2.16. [Move to] Right section, Authuille Trenches. Relieved 1/4th Bn KOYLI." Another lists every officer who served in the battalion noting when they  joined (the originals are identified) and what befell them, with dates; e.g. killed, wounded, sick, transferred etc and then there is a similar list for all the  Warrant Officers and Company Quarter Master Sergeants, I do not remember seeing such a list in any other history. There is a summary of casualties  which shows the various periods of time over which they were incurred and the relevant sector of the front - a total of 98 officers 2,733 other ranks. There  is also a list of Honours and Awards, which includes one VC, and it is made clear that only those conferred on personnel for services rendered while  actually serving with the Battalion are included. There is no complete battalion Roll of Honour nor, unfortunately, is there an index. 4th DW was one of the  regiment's three Territorial battalions (the other two were 5th and 6th), based in Halifax, Yorks, part of the 2nd West Riding Brigade (later 147th), West  Riding Division (later 49th). For the first three months of the war it was on coast defence near Hull and Grimsby before moving to Doncaster, where it  remained till embarking for France on 14th April 1915. It fought on the Western Front for the rest of the war, staying in the same brigade and division. The  story of the battalion, written primarily for the men who served with it, is well told, based on official documents, supplemented by personal recollections of  many officers and other ranks; the sketch maps are clear and most of them concentrate on the battalion's front as opposed to the general area-type  maps.      £65.00  Military History

"This  book has been written at the earnest request of many comrades and the kindly insistence of a friendly publisher. It was not, perhaps, until I had written it  that I realised what an eventful period is bridged in less than half a century. The Ireland of my boyhood has passed away and a New Country has arisen in  its stead. The Dublin Medical School continues to flourish, but under very changed conditions to the eighties. The Army to-day is very different to the  archaic institution which I joined and loved. In medicine a new outlook on disease has arisen, and many mysterious diseases of my youth have been  traced to their source. In surgery the teaching of Lister has been developed to such an extent that Lister himself would hardly understand the methods of  the modern surgeon. The whole Empire has passed through the furnace of a World War. Everything is changed and changing. It is good, perhaps, to recall  the lovable peasantry of Donegal, the days before motor cars and telephones in medical practice, the night schools of Dublin, and the days when the Army  wore scarlet, blue and gold. A generation has risen which missed the War, and it may be good to show them that Great Adventure from a new angle.  Indeed, it may not be out of place to try to depict the horrors of peace for the "old soldier men back from the wars." Enough and to spare has been written  of the sordid side of soldiering. I would like to point out that there are still men in this country, like the Rajputs in India, who will accept no service but that  of the Sword. Let those who say that there is no romance in modern war recall the, gallant soldier referred to in these pages, who, by his personality and  toy drums, infused hope and courage into disheartened men. Let them remember the priceless friendships made in the dugouts of the Somme and the  mud of Flanders. God knows, no one wants war, least of all those who have had first-hand experience of it. But let us not forget the gallant fellows who  spent the best years of their lives acquiring that knowledge which saved this country from foreign dominion."  £50.00  Military History

[Ed.]            The Bolsheviks in Russian Society : The Revolution and the Civil Wars       New Haven: Yale University Press, 1997            6¼" x 9½". 333pp. Black boards in d/j, As New. In this book distinguished scholars from East and West draw on recently opened archives to challenge the commonly held view that the  Bolsheviks enjoyed widespread support and that their early history was simply a march toward inevitable victory. They show instead that during this period Russian society was at war  with itself and with the Bolsheviks. Authors discuss such previously neglected subjects as government policies toward women and toward religious institutions, the protests of workers  and peasants, and the anti-Bolshevik movements and parties. Describing not one civil war but several social, political, and military confrontations going on simultaneously, they portray a  Russia in turmoil and on outcome that was by no means inevitable.        £20.00  Military History

It describes what the battalion did in the  early days of 1918, touches briefly on their movements in January, deals fully with the March retreat in the face of the German offensive, follows  them in the fighting to save Amiens and goes on to describe at length the battalion's heroic stand at the Bois des Buttes, under the shadow of the  Chemin des Dames, on the 27th May and following days. For this action the battalion was awarded the Croix de Guerre with Palm. This account comes  not from official records but from the information of those who took part, and it took the author more than a year to assemble all the details. The  casualties in the action at the Bois des Buttes, as given in the regimental history, amounted to twenty three officers and 528 men killed or missing.                £80.00 Military History

16314     Crowe, Brigadier-General, J. H. V.             General Smuts' Campaign in East Africa  London: John Murray, July 1918 First Edition             5½” x 8¾”. [xxiii] + 280pp, portrait frontis, four maps. Red cloth blocked in black on the front and gilt on the spine, blind ruled, no d/j,  spine faded, head and tail of spine frayed, otherwise Very Good. The career of Jan Smuts is one of the most remarkable military and  political stories of the 20th century. A gifted guerilla commander against the British in the Boer War; by 1914 Smuts was happy to stand  with the British as head of a large army fighting to conquer German East Africa (today's Tanzania). Sadly the campaign was not one of his  finest hours. Both the text of this book, and Smuts' own somewhat defensive introduction, gives a good idea of why the resourceful  German commander, Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck, was able to run rings round the superior allied forces trying to trap him. Lettow and his  staff, and their small army of trained native Africans, the 'Askaris', knew the lie of the land and were able to live off it. The allied  frustration, as they repeatedly tracked and attacked him, only to find Lettow melting away to fight another day, is palpable. Evcentually,  the allies, at enormous cost, succeeded in conquering the territory and forcing Lettow into neighbouring areas, but the 1918 Armistice  found him still at liberty and with his force intact. By then Smuts had long departed. It is pleasant to record that Smuts ended his career  as a valued member of Churchill's War Cabinet and South African Prime Minister, and that in the hungry months for Germany that  followed the Second World War he was able to supply his old opponent, Lettow, with food parcels.      £75.00  Military History

There is some light scattered foxing and a few pages are stained or soiled (for example, pages 110-11, below), while a  few corners have been creased down. In general, however, the text is reasonably clean. The edge of the text block is dust-stained and lightly foxed.              £150.00                Military History

Brown cloth in d/j, Fine/as new. During the course of his research the author was offered access to the secret wartime files of diplomatic intercepts which  Churchill valued very highly. They showed that Churchill's role in British foreign policy and war planning was far more significant that had hitherto been supposed. Although he was  neither a commander-in-chief nor a head of state, he personally exerted considerable influence on British foreign policy to force Turkey into WW2 on the side of the Allies. This study  helps us to understand Churchill's use of secret signals intelligence before and during WW2 and Britain's relations with Turkey, shedding new light on the role of the neutral countries  (of which Turkey was one).               £16.00  Military History

16643     Grey, Major W. E.            The 2nd City of London Regiment (Royal Fusiliers) in the Great War (1914-1919)                London: Published from The Headquarters of the Regiment, 1929               7¼” x 10”. [xxxiv] + 464pp, maps, illustrations. Blue cloth boards with gilt cover vignette, backed with red cloth gilt, no d/j, spine faded, covers rubbed  otherwise Very Good. Malta - Ypres - Gallipoli - Southern Egypt - Somme - Arras - Cambrai - Amiens. In his preface the author, who took three years over  this history, makes the point that material that should have been preserved in the regimental archives had disappeared, and that personal diaries, letters  and memoranda had been very hard to come by, making his task not an easy one. One result is that there is no list of honours and awards but rather a  summary, nor could he get reliable casualty figures for some of the battles. Nevertheless, despite the handicaps, he acknowledges plenty of help and  advice and he has produced a very commendable piece of work which certainly ranks with other histories and is a good deal better than some. It was his  intention to present a connected or continuous story so he has not adopted the pattern of separate parts for each battalion. He follows the chronology of  the war with each battalion being brought into the story at the appropriate time. Each chapter covers a specific period/battle and a specific battalion, as is  made clear in the list of contents. The 1/2nd was with the 1st London Brigade, 1st London Division when war broke out, and a month later the brigade was  sent to Malta to replace the regular battalions. In February 1915 they in turn were replaced by their second line battalions (2/2nd had been formed in  September 1914) and left for France where the 1/2nd was posted to 17th Brigade 6th Division at Armentieres and for the rest of the war it remained on the  Western Front. In October 1915 the brigade was transferred to the 24th Division and in February 1916 it was moved again - to the re-formed 56th  (previously1st London) Division, part of 169th Brigade, and there it stayed to the end. After Malta the 2/2nd was sent to Gallipoli where it arrived on 13  October and was attached to the 2nd Naval Brigade. In January 1916 it went to France where it was disbanded and the 3/2nd (formed in December 1914),  which was in the UK at the time with 173rd Brigade, 58th Division, was renamed 2/2nd. The division landed in France in January 1917 and the battalion  fought its first major action at Bullecourt in May; it, too, remained with the brigade throughout the fighting to the end of the war. Finally there was a fourth  line battalion, 4/2nd, which was formed in May 1915 but did not serve overseas; its function was to supply drafts for the two overseas battalions. The Roll  of Honour lists 1,345 dead and the summary of awards shows 65 British decorations to officers and 246 to other ranks, excluding MiD.                £90.00  Military History

Red cloth gilt, no d/j, covers rubbed, old Lending Schedule on rear pastedown, previous owner's name  inscribed (but no other markings), prelims lightly foxed, otherwise Very Good, The author of this book was a Brigadier-General in 1914, commanding the  10th Infantry Brigade (1st R Warwicks, 2nd Seaforth H, 1st R Irish Fusiliers and 2nd R Dublin Fusiliers) of the 4th Division; he ended up as a corps  commander. The 4th Division formed the second wave of the BEF, arriving in France on 22nd August 1914 in time to join in the retreat from Mons. This  account, though not published until after the war, was written at the front in the Spring of 1915 and the author has allowed it to stand practically as it was  written at the time, thus providing a valuable and immediate contribution to the fighting in those early days. He covers Le Cateau, the retreat, the  subsequent advance to the Aisne and the move to Flanders. In mid-November 1914 Haldane handed over command of 10th Brigade at 'Plugstreet' on  promotion to command of the 3rd Division at Ypres, where its commander, Maj Gen E. Hamilton, had been killed. During the retreat from Mons the COs of  1st R Warwicks and 2nd RDF attempted to negotiate the surrender of their battalions at St Quentin, a move that was frustrated by the actions of Major Tom  Bridges. Both COs were courtmartialled and cashiered, but Haldane makes no mention of the incident.      £175.00 Military History

Blue cloth blocked in silver in d/j, As New. In this brilliant new work of history, Adam Hochschild follows a group of characters  connected by blood ties, close friendships or personal enmities and shows how the war exposed the divisions between them. They include the brother and sister whose  views on the war could not have been more diametrically opposed he a career soldier, she a committed pacifist; the politician whose job was to send young men who  refused conscription to prison, yet whose godson was one of those young men and the suffragette sisters, one of whom passionately supported the war and one of whom  was equally passionately opposed to it. Through these divided families, Hochschild paints a vivid picture of Britain poised between the optimism of the Victorian era and  the era of Auschwitz and the Gulag a divided country, fractured by the seismic upheaval of the Great War and its aftermath.   £15.00  Military History

[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.                £25.00  Military History

16366     Hope, James [of the Gordon Highlanders]             Letters From Portugal, Spain, and France, During the Memorable Campaigns of 1811, 1812, and 1813; and from Belgium and France in the Year 1815        Edinburgh, Michael Anderson, 1819  5¼” x 8¾”. 302pp. Bound in thick, paper-covered, card with a cloth backstrip and leather spine label. The covers are stained and worn: there is extensive  old staining, particularly to the rear board and the paper covering is beginning to flake off in places.  The worst staining appears to be from contact with  water, but there are also other stains present, including ink. The card is heavily rubbed, especially around the edges and there is a puncture on the rear  board. There are some indentations along the edges of the boards. The cloth backstrip is faded and dull. The spine ends and corners are heavily bumped.  The inner hinges are cracked, the front hinge quite badly. On the front pastedown is an old Library label which has been defaced with the bookplate of W.  P. Clifford of Dunedin, New Zealand, and there is also a small Bookseller's stamp (Newbold's Bookshop, also of Dunedin). A previous owner has identified  the Author, with a pencilled annotation on the Title-Page, and there are a further few annotations in ink and pencil in the text, some of which seem to be  reasonably contemporary. The paper has discoloured badly with age and, added to this, the final pages are also further discoloured due to water staining.  Pages 151 to 154 are partially detached and stand proud of the text block. Pages 263 to 266 are completely detached and are chipped and torn on the  edges as a result.     £1,495.00                Military History

It  was formed in September 1914 and , as its title suggests, it was composed of battalions of Rifle and Light Infantry regiments, its brigades were  numbered 59th, 60th and 61st. In January 1915 one of the battalions, 11th DLI, became the divisional pioneer battalion and its place in 61st Brigade  was taken by 12th King's (Liverpool), an army troops battalion attached to the division. The first GOC was Sir E.O.F Hamilton, a sixty year old who  had retired in April 1914 and whose last appointment had been commanding troops in Jersey and Guernsey. He was replaced within a month and does  not rate a mention in the book, his successor was a New Zealand officer R. H. Davies; in all the division was to have six GOCs. The division moved to  France in July 1915 and in the two weeks prior to embarkation all three brigade commanders were replaced, probably on grounds of age - the  youngest was 58. Its first major action was a subsidiary attack in support of the Loos offensive, an action that brought the first of its six VCs to Lieut  G.A. Maling RAMC of 61st Field Ambulance. During the first half of 1916 the division was in the Ypres salient where it played a supporting role during  the German attack on the Canadians at Mount Sorrel; at the end of July it moved down to the Somme where it remained till March 1917, taking part in  several of the battles, particularly Guillemont where the divisional memorial can be seen. It then moved back north for the Third Ypres offensive in  which it suffered 4,600 casualties, distinguishing itself in the capture of Langemark where another divisional memorial located. It was at Cambrai and  during the German offensive of 1918 it fought a rearguard action, continuously in action for twelve days. That it was a good division is testified by the  fact that the Earl of Cavan specifically asked for it as GOC the newly formed XIV Corps, and after the Somme he made a point of asking the Army  commander and C in C for not to transfer the division 'if they can help it.' In his introduction to this history he says: 'The 20th Division never failed  me, and never failed its neighbours during the time I had the honour to of commanding the XIVth Corps.' The total casualty list numbered 35,470.This  history is a straightforward account, devoid of heroics or emotive descriptions. Operations are adequately described, including minor and individual  actions, and changes in senior commanders and staff are noted. There are useful maps to support the narrative, a good index but no appendices  giving such relevant reference material as honours and awards, casualty summaries and staff lists. A New Army division, formed in September 1914,  it went to France in July 1915 and fought on the Western Front throughout the war, suffering 35,470 casualties and winning six VCs. Distinguished  action at Guillemont 1916, Langemark 1917 and Cambrai 1918. Command and Staff lists.   £40.00  Military History

[xi] + 244pp, maps, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Alexander Johnston went over to France in August 1914 as the signals officer for 7 Infantry  Brigade. He went on to serve in that capacity with 3rd Division before becoming, in turn, Brigade Major, Commanding Officer 10th Battalion Cheshire Regiment and finally  Officer Commanding 126 Infantry Brigade. Throughout he proved himself to be a brave, resourceful and determined soldier. He was always close to the front line, yet his  signals and staff duties gave him insights into the conduct of the war at higher levels. Therein lies the value of this diary. Many of the major engagements of the war are  covered. He took part in Mons, Le Cateau and the subsequent retreat and advance to the Aisne. The diary provides valuable insights into the battle of La Bassee and the  trench warfare of 1915. As a Brigade Major he was kept busy in 1916 with both holding the line (in the face of intensive enemy mining operations) and the Somme battle.  By 1917 his work in command of 10th Cheshire Regiment showed positive results in the battalion's performance at Messines and gained him promotion to Brigadier  General. Within days of taking command he was up at the front line where he was badly wounded. But for the wound Johnston may well have gained even higher  command and wider acclaim for his services. £15.00  Military History

Besides throwing favourable light on the dictator himself, this account of Mussolini's relations with Britain shows that Italy was ready to  become Britain's ally until Britain felt obliged to take a lead in economic sanctions against Italy for its invasion of Abyssinia in 1935. Mussolini despised Hitler and his anti-Semitism, yet felt surprised  and antagonized by Britain's mobilization of the League of Nations over the Abyssinian affair. Thus, this book shows, Britain missed the opportunity to bring the Italians onto the Allied side, as it did  again when Italy attempted to make a separate peace in 1943.         £18.00  Military History

After reading some of the literature of the war with its oppression of sex & cesspools, this book may seem a deliberate  avoidance of reality. But memory is a stubborn thing: those men whom I learnt to know better than I shall ever know men again, had a  standard of morality & decency not always attained by their peace-time traducers... The adventures in this book have developed from  small grains of fact." - from the Author's Introduction.     £95.00  Military History

16067    Lyon, James       Serbia and the Balkan Front, 1914 : The Outbreak of the Great War             London: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, 2015      6” x 9½”. [xvi] + 306pp, illustrations. Pictorial laminated boards, As New. Serbia and the Balkan Front, 1914 is the first history of the  Great War to address in-depth the crucial events of 1914 as they played out on the Balkan Front. James Lyon demonstrates how blame  for the war's outbreak can be placed squarely on Austria-Hungary's expansionist plans and internal political tensions, Serbian nationalism,  South Slav aspirations, the unresolved Eastern Question, and a political assassination sponsored by renegade elements within Serbia's  security services. In doing so, he portrays the background and events of the Sarajevo Assassination and the subsequent military  campaigns and diplomacy on the Balkan Front during 1914. The book details the first battle of the First World War, the first Allied victory  and the massive military humiliations Austria-Hungary suffered at the hands of tiny Serbia, while discussing the oversized strategic role  Serbia played for the Allies during 1914. Lyon challenges existing historiography that contends the Habsburg Army was ill-prepared for  war and shows that the Dual Monarchy was in fact superior in manpower and technology to the Serbian Army, thus laying blame on  Austria-Hungary's military leadership rather than on its state of readiness. Based on archival sources from Belgrade, Sarajevo and Vienna  and using never-before-seen material to discuss secret negotiations between Turkey and Belgrade to carve up Albania, Serbia's desertion  epidemic, its near-surrender to Austria-Hungary in November 1914, and how Serbia became the first belligerent to openly proclaim its  war aims, Serbia and the Balkan Front, 1914 enriches our understanding of the outbreak of the war and Serbia's role in modern Europe.  It is of great importance to students and scholars of the history of the First World War as well as military, diplomatic and modern  European history.       £60.00  Military History

[viii] + 264pp, maps. Green cloth blocked in silver in a rubbed d/j, Near Fine. The soldiers 'football match' and the unofficial ceasefire of Christmas 1914  has become a legend of the Great War, but fraternization between enemy troops was actually widespread. In winter 1914, after months of marching, soldiers on both  fronts began to dig trenches, and the war became a battle of attrition in which young men faced each other across what was often only a few yards of the muddy,  bombed landscape called No Man's Land. Trapped in this devastation the soldiers of both armies experienced a shared feeling of pointlessness that culminated in the  unofficial armistice of Christmas 1914, when German and English soldiers laid down their weapons for a few hours of joyful peace and carol singing. Using original  research from the best European historians and discovering a history forgotten or lost in censor reports, officer journals and official reports, these brief moments of  humanity are explored on all fronts during the long years of conflict. £20.00  Military History

[xx] + 554pp, colour frontis, one other plate in colour, maps, illustrations (including folding maps and maps as end-papers). Blue cloth gilt,  no d/j, covers rubbed, previous owner's name inscribed, edges lightly foxed otherwise Very Good. During the Great War eight battalions of the  regiment went on active service and another seven (including 1st Garrison Battalion) served at home. No less than 32,000 men passed through the  ranks of the regiment of whom some 6,000 died; forty-eight battle honours were awarded and one VC. Appendices contain separate rolls of honour  of officers and other ranks with names grouped alphabetically by ranks; all ranks list of honours and awards and foreign awards, and separate lists  of Mention in Despatches. The 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th Battalions served on the Western Front, the 2nd Battalion in Macedonia with 28th Division  following ten months in France and Belgium, the 1/4th in India and Aden, 1/5th in India and Mesopotamia and finally the 10th Battalion (formed in  Egypt in Feb 1917 from two converted Kent yeomanry regiments) fought in Palestine and on the Western Front with 74th (Yeomanry) Division. Apart  from one chapter describing the raising of wartime battalions and the initial disposition of the two TF battalions, and one on their affiliated regiment,  the Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, the chapters of this history each cover well-defined periods of the war in the various theatres in which the parts  played by all battalions involved are recorded. The groundwork or skeleton is based on battalion, brigade or divisional war diaries, fleshed out by  personal narratives and diaries provided by men who had fought and survived. Where possible, the names of the officers who became casualties in  any action are given in the text after the record of the battle, but only the number in the case of other ranks. Again, wherever possible the recipients  of honours (all ranks) have been named in the account as news of their decorations reached their battalion.    £75.00  Military History

Red cloth blocked in black, no d/j, covers rubbed and marked, tanning to pages,  some slackness in binding, musty, otherwise Good. "In writing the story of my three attempts to escape from Germany, and the  experiences and impressions during the three years I was a prisoner of war there, I do so for several reasons, the chief being the  requests of my family and intimate friends, that they shall be placed on record, and a feeling within myself that in so relating them an  opportunity will be given, not only to my own countrymen and countrywomen, but to the folk of the other allied countries now linked  together in the great fight for democracy and freedom, against tyranny and oppression, of studying for themselves the conditions under  which we were compelled to live. They will thus learn our sufferings, both mental and physical, of our struggles against starvation,  disease, vermin, and filth of all kinds, and in the study be able to compare the treatment meted out to Germans interned in the different  countries of the Allied Powers, particularly our own, and that which we received from the hands of our captors during the time the  fortunes of war had caused us to be interned in Germany. I do not pretend to be the possessor of any literary skill or talent; I have felt  the lack of these powers during the time I have been engaged writing this work. Had I been fortunate enough to possess them, I should  have been able to write more clearly and concisely concerning the happenings and events recorded in the following chapters. As it is,  very often words have failed me to describe fully the horrors and feelings of those times. I have done my best, however, sincerely hoping  that in the event of these memoirs of mine being published, they will be interesting as the actual experiences of a prisoner in German  hands. I have confined myself, as far as it has been possible, to my own actual experiences, feelings, and impressions ; but where I have  recorded the testimony of others I unhesitatingly say I have numberless witnesses among the men of the Allied armies interned, who  were present and witnessed the sights, and endured with myself the hardships of which I write. Those men, I have not the slightest doubt,  would come forward if necessary, when the war is over and they have once again been restored to freedom, to testify to the truthfulness  of what I have set down, if my statements and assertions are challenged by the Hun. I sincerely hope that rigorous measures will be  taken by the respective Allied Governments to bring to account those Germans who were in authority at the different Concentration  Camps and working centres during the period of which I write ; and that, as the result of investigation, suitable punishment will be meted  out to them for their inhuman conduct towards us, during the time we were helpless and powerless in their hands." £95.00  Military History

'Based  on several years of research in Austrian, German, and Russian archives, this book brilliantly analyzes the problems, suffering and  occasional joys of millions of Germans, Austrians, Hungarians, Czechs, Poles, and other nationalities whom World War I thrust as  prisoners of war into Siberia. Alon Rachamimov shows, contrary to earlier historians, that the ethnic hatreds that characterized East  Central Europe in the interwar period did not originate from the POW camps; rather, the prisoners got along better wiih one another than  the tsarist authoritites would have liked.' Istvan Deak, Columbia University 'Covers new ground and has very suggestive things to say  about the way prisoners of war become forgotton people in the narratives constructed after the war by soldiers themeselves. It is also  valuable in adding to the as yet thin literature on the war on the Eastern Front, and to an understanding of the cultural life of prisoners'  Jay Winter, Columbia University £40.00  Military History

14384    Read, Anthony  The Devil's Disciples : The Lives and Times of Hitler's Inner Circle               London: Jonathan Cape, 2003          6¼" x 9½". [viii] + 984pp, illustrations. Black cloth in d/j, As New. The Nazi regime was essentially a religious cult, relying on the hypnotic  personality of one man, Adolf Hitler, and it was fated to die with him. But while it lasted, his closest lieutenants competed ferociously for power and  position as his chosen successor. This deadly contest accounted for many of the regime's worst excesses, in which millions of people died, and which  brought Western civilization to its knees. The Devil's Disciples is the first major book for a general readership to examine those lieutenants, not only  as individuals but also as a group. It focuses on the three Nazi paladins closest to Hitler - Goring, Goebbels and Himmler - with their nearest rivals -  Bormann, Speer and Ribbentrop in close attendance. Others who were removed in various ways - like Gregor Strasser, Ernst R-hm, Heydrich and  Hess - play supporting roles. Perceptive and illuminating, The Devil's Disciples is above all a powerful chronological narrative, showing how the  personalities of Hitler's inner circle developed and how their jealousies and constant intrigues affected the regime, the war, and Hitler himself.                £20.00  Military History

Letters from Gallipoli, Serbia & France, arranged by his sister with a memoir  by his grandfather. After Eton & Cambridge joined Royal Field Artillery in August 1914 & was killed in November 1917 with A/150 Army Brigade R.F.A. He  was recommended for the M.C. but never received it & his grandfather lobbied in vain for the award after his death. George William Taylor was born in  1892, educated at Eton (“as far as his education was concerned his time at Eton was largely wasted. His talent was mathematical, his taste was for natural  science, but he was forced through the usual dry classical study, which tended to dwarf rather than to develop his faculties… but he always acquitted himself  with credit… He owed much, no doubt, to Eton in veneering and polish…”) and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was keen on rowing, beagling, fishing and,  amongst other sports, otter-hunting. On one occasion he was “badly bitten in the wrist (and an otter’s bite is no joke)” – this particular otter had served out  its own form of justice but was inevitably killed. Taylor was reading for the Bar when war came and on 15th August 1914 he was commissioned in the Royal  Field Artillery. He served at Gallipoli with the 67th Brigade R.F.A. then with the 10th (Irish) Division in Salonika for several months until invalided sick.  Recuperating in London, he was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in July 1916. In April 1917 he was posted to France but was wounded on 5th June  during artillery preparations for the Battle of Messines, returning again to England for hospital treatment. He sailed for France for the last time on 17th  August 1917 and died of wounds (gas poisoning incurred on the night of 1st/2nd November) on 9th November whilst serving with “A” Battery, 150th Army  Brigade R.F.A. He was twenty-five years old and is buried in Dozinghem Military Cemetery. Contains an account he wrote of his experiences in Serbia, his  letters from France, extracts from letters from his Commanding Officer describing the manner of his passing and (in the introduction-cum-memoir by his  grandfather) other extracts relating his good conduct at Messines etc. for which he had been recommended for the Military Cross (which he never received  and for which his grandfather lobbied in vain after his death). An extract from his grandfather’s Introduction is quoted in the introduction to this  bibliography. £250.00               Military History

15966     Teichman, Captain O.     The Diary of a Yeomanry M. O. : Egypt, Gallipoli, Palestine and Italy          London: T. Fisher Unwin Ltd, 1921   5½" x 9". 284pp, frontis, illustrations, maps. Red cloth gilt, no d/j, covers marked and very rubbed, head and tail of spine frayed, shaken;  a complete copy in a worn binding. The author, a Territorial medical officer in the RAMC, was attached to the Worcestershire Yeomanry  (Queen's Own Worcestershire Hussars) in 1914. The regiment was part of the 1st South Midland Brigade, 1st Mounted Division, but within  a month of the outbreak of war a 2nd Mounted Division was formed and the 1st S Midland Brigade joined it. In April 1915 the division  went to Egypt and in May the brigades were numbered as Mounted Brigades with 1st S Midland becoming 1st Mounted Brigade. In August  1915 the division was ordered to proceed, dismounted, to Gallipoli and Teichman went with his regiment and into action. The division  suffered heavy losses at Scimitar Hill (21 Aug) and this attack is described in some detail. A week later, on Chocolate Hill, Suvla, he was  wounded by shrapnel and evacuated home. In one entry he describes how a large packet of maps (in very short supply) delivered to  brigade HQ turned out to be maps of Cromer, Sheringham and King's Lynn districts where they had been stationed in 1914. He rejoined  his regiment at Mudros in early November from where they returned to Egypt to the Canal zone, but at christmas Teichman went down  with enteric fever and was again evacuated to the UK. By May he was back at duty (his brigade had been renumbered 5th) and during  operations in the Sinai Desert was again wounded, at the battle of Qatia (5 Aug 1916) which kept him out of action till the end of October.  The diarist takes us through the rest of the Sinai campaign and, in March 1917, into Palestine, first with Murray (battles of Gaza) and then,  from June 1917, with Allenby, fighting as part of the Australian Mounted Division. At Huj, on 8 November, he rode close behind his  regiment as it took part in a charge against some 2,000 Turkish infantry who were protecting guns manned by Austrians and Germans;  the infantry retreated and the guns were taken. The marvellous descriptions of living and fighting in the desert include an incident  involving a ten foot black mamba and attempts to kill it using chloroform (corps HQ had asked for dead but undamaged snakes for  antidotes to snakebites). He left the Middle East in June 1918 for leave in the UK after which he was posted to Italy where he joined 22nd  Brigade (7th Division) in October for the last month of the war. Teichman ended the war with a DSO, MC, Croix de Guerre, Croci di  Guerra and three mentions in despatches.             £150.00                Military History

13998    Wylly, Colonel H. C.         The 1st and 2nd Battalions The Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire And Derbyshire Regiment) In The Great War        Aldershot: Gale & Polden for the Regimental Committee, n.d. [c.1925]       7¼” x 10”. [xiv] + 224pp, portrait frontis., 25 photos, 12 folding maps & plans (4 in end-pocket map 2 missing). Original purple and green cloth gilt, no d/j,  covers marked and rubbed, inner hinges cracked, corners bumped. A bottle of black ink has, at some time, been spilled over the top edge of the text block,  this has stained the front end-papers (badly), and the top edge of almost all pages (though not affecting the text). Some of the maps have also been  stained. Due to this, this remains a good reading copy, though rare in this edition. In this history the two battalions are dealt with separately but the list of  Honours and Awards combines both battalions. When war broke out the 1st Battalion was in Bombay and sailed for home on 3 Sep 1914, arriving on 2  October and joining the newly formed regular division, the 8th. They landed in France on 5 November 1914 taking part in the battles of Neuve Chapelle,  Aubers Ridge and Loos. Both the regiment's VCs were won by the 1st Battalion, at Neuve Chapelle and during the Aubers Ridge battle. Subsequently the  narrative describes the battalion's part on the Somme, at Third Ypres, at Villers Bretonneux and the Chemin des Dames in 1918, and the Second Battle of  Arras. The 2nd Battalion in August 1914 was stationed in Sheffield, part of the 18th Brigade of the 6th Division which was widely dispersed with two brigades  in Ireland and one in Northern Command. They landed in France in September 1914 and after taking part in the Battle of the Aisne moved north to the Ypres  salient where the division stayed for the next thirteen months sustaining some 11,000 casualties before moving down to the Somme. The battalion fought at  Lens in June/July 1917 suffering losses of 183 or a quarter of its trench strength, and it was also at Cambrai. Wylly's is a factual, unembellished account  avoiding dramatics. Casualty figures are given from time to time following actions with individual officers named, as are officers with incoming drafts. After  the war a memorial tower was erected at the summit of Crich Cliff, near Ripley, to be seen for miles around. The account of its opening, on 6th August of  some unspecified year is reproduced from the Derbyshire Advertiser: it commemorates 11,409 of the Regiment who died in the Great War and the 140,000  who served in its thirty-two battalions.                £70.00  Military History

16640    Wyrall, Everard [with a Foreword by Field Marshal Sir G. F. Milne]            The Gloucestershire Regiment in The War 1914 - 1918 : The Records of the 1st (28th) 2nd (61st) 3rd (Special Reserve) and 4th, 5th and 6th (First-Line T.  A.) Battalions           London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1931 [1st Ed.]            5½” x 9”. [ix] + 357pp, portrait frontis, twenty maps. Blue cloth gilt, no d/j, covers rubbed, rear boards damp-stained, front cover bowed, otherwise Very  Good. As the subtitle states these are the records of the 1st (28th Foot), 2nd (61st Foot)), 3rd (Special Reserve) and 4th, 5th and 6th (First-Line T.A.)  Battalions, in other words this is the history of the battalions of the regiment which existed prior to the outbreak of war. The one appendix lists the twenty- four battalions that existed during the war, indicating the theatre of war in which they served and in which division. Eight of these battalions did not serve  overseas, and of the rest only one (7th Service Battalion) did not serve on the Western Front, it went with 13th Division to Gallipoli, Mesopotamia and  Persia. Total losses amounted to 8,100, 72 battle honours were awarded and in the appendix is shown which honours were awarded to which battalion,  information rarely seen in any other Great War regimental history; and four VCs were won but only one of them by one of the battalions covered in this  book (Pte G. Miles, 1/5th Battalion). In August 1914 the 1st Battalion was stationed in Bordon, part of the 3rd Infantry Brigade, 1st Division, and was  among the first British troops to disembark in Le Havre, on 13th August. The first quarter of this book is concerned with the doings of the 1st Battalion  which saw action in the early battles of the war - Mons and the retreat, the Marne, the Aisne, First Ypres and Givenchy. The 2nd Battalion was in China  when war broke out and came home to join the newly formed 81st Brigade, 27th Division which arrived in France in December 1914 and in November  1915 was transferred to Salonika, where it remained for the rest of the war. Three chapters of the book deal with the operations in that theatre of war. The  three Territorial battalions were in the South Midland Division, later the 48th which crossed to France at the end of March 1915 and fought on the Western  front till November 1917, when it was sent to Italy where it remained till the armistice. The final chapter gives the account of operations in that theatre. The  author, a well known military historian, was probably the most prolific among the writers of regimental and divisional histories, some thirteen in all, and  this account reflects the skill of the writer in producing a very readable narrative, which draws on the Battalion Diary, on individual accounts of actions,  some quite lengthy, and makes use of footnotes to give casualty details in addition to those contained in the text, various comments, and items of  information from other sources to confirm or add to the main text. The maps are good. There is no Roll of Honour nor list of honours and awards. £75.00  Military History

15809    Ziemann, Benjamin        War Experiences in Rural Germany 1914-1923      Oxford and New York: Berg Publishers, 2007 [First published in 1997 in German by Klartext Verlag, Essen]     5½” x 8¾”. [xiii] + 302pp. Original printed boards, no d/j [as issued], As New. World War I was a uniquely devastating total war that  surpassed all previous conflicts for its destruction. But what was the reality like on the ground, for both the soldiers on the front-lines and  the women on the homefront? Drawing on intimate firsthand accounts in diaries and letters, War Experiences in Rural Germany examines  this question in detail and challenges some strongly held assumptions about the Great War. The author makes the controversial case for  the blurring of front and homefront. He shows that through the constant exchange of letters and frequent furloughs, rural soldiers  maintained a high degree of contact with their home lives. In addition, the author provides a more nuanced interpretation of the alleged  brutalizing effect of the war experience, suggesting that it was by far not as complete as has been previously understood. This  pathbreaking book paints a vivid picture of the dynamics of total war on rural communities, from the calling up of troops to the  reintegration of veterans into society.        £40.00  Military History
