Letters from the Army in the Crimea, Anthony Coningham Sterling
11 Anthony Coningham Sterling Letters from the Army in the Crimea
The Naval & Military Press Softcover Very Good None issued 19cm 
This is a reproduction of the original & is a compassionate and sardonic view of the heroically mismanaged Crimean War culled from his letters home. The Crimean War acquired its grim notoriety not least because of the frankness of the letters and despatches from the field that shocked the mid-Victorian newspaper reading public. `The Times' correspondent in the Crimea, William Howard Russell, became a household name with his graphic descriptions of the fighting and the suffering of the inadequately clad and led troops. Here, in the same tradition, are the Crimean letters of Captain [later Lieut. Col.] Sir Anthony Coningham Sterling, who came out of retirement to serve as Brigade Major in Sir Colin Campbell's Highland Brigade. The author takes us through the bloody battles of the Alkma and Inkerman and the confusion of Balaclava and into the siege of Sepastopol. Normally stoical and even humorous, the miseries of the campaign sometimes bring him close to despair, especially in the freezing trenches before Sepstopol and after such disasters as the abortive assault on the Great Redan. 496 crisp pp & well over the 500g.

UK Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2004 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 23.5cm 
ex-Swindon lib, usual stamps etc. In summer 1941 Erwin Rommel was Hitler's favourite general: he had driven the British out of Libya and stood poised to invade Egypt. He seemed unbeatable. So the British decided to have him killed. The British opened their counter-attack with a series of special forces raids, the first ever operation by the newly formed SAS. Rommel was one of the targets. Michael Asher reveals how poor planning and incompetence in high places led to disaster in the desert-- and how fantastic bravery and brilliant improvisation enabled a handful of men to escape. Classic real life adventure, written by best-selling desert expert and novelist Michael Asher. 303pp & just under 500g for post.

17 Bader, Douglas Fight for the Sky The Story of the Spitfire and the Hurricane
UK Sidgwick & Jackson 1973 Softcover Good None issued 24 Cm 
Bader tells the inspiring story of the Battle of Britain from the viewpoint of 'The Few'. Using superb illustrations he traces the development of the Spitfire and Hurricane and describes the nail-biting actions of those who flew them against far superior numbers of enemy aircraft. As an added bonus, other well-known fighter aces including Johnnie Johnson, 'Laddie' Lucas and Max Aikten contribute to Douglas's book, no doubt out of affection and respect. This is a really important contribution to RAF history by one of the greatest -and certainly the most famous - pilot of the Second World War. 190pp, just too far over the 500g re post so why not get another book & use up that postage. Rear cover & last 3 pp have a stain (my guess is a spilt cup of tea), corners thumbed. Despite its faults it's a classic addition to any military shelf.

18 Ball, Simon The Bitter Sea: The Struggle for Mastery in the Mediterranean 1935-1949
Harper Press 2009 Paperback Very Good - Good None issued 23.5cm 
A lucid and masterly biography of the Mediterranean during a time of war, from Mussoliniís audacious bid for conquest to the creation of Israel and the start of the Cold War. The Bitter Sea is a fascinating interpretation of world affairs and a significant contribution to twentieth century history. With incisive strategic and political analysis, Simon Ball demonstrates in this dramatic narrative how the Mediterranean Sea lay at the heart of recent world history. 380pp, 2 photo sections, 750g packed for post. review >>>> An excellent history of the Mediterranean naval war which restores balance by giving appropriate weight to the courage and effectiveness of Italian naval forces. The political back biting and manipulation amongst the higher levels of the British naval forces was new to me and fascinating as was the extent of strong Nazi sympathy amongst the French naval establishment.

19 Bartlett, Norman Island Victory
Australia Angus & Robertson 1955 1st Hardcover Good Fair 20.5cm 
166pp & less than 500g to post. Name removed top right corner 1st p. Bartlett was somewhat snobbish about authors who wrote luridly illustrated paperbacks, a case of judging a book by its cover. Anyway here is his novelisation of war in the Pacific, Island Victory > "The events in this book all happened. It is only fiction in so far as events have been rearranged into a coherent pattern." The action is set in 1944 in New Guinea and on Kamiri island - a Dutch possession to the north. An Australian Kittyhawk squadron recaptures Kamiri with US support. The action is mostly in the personalities and thoughts of the characters. There's some interesting absence of regard for the indigenous peoples swept up into this conflict.
