One Man's Jungle: A Biography of F.Spencer Chapman, D.S.O., Barker, Ralph
2 Barker, Ralph One Man's Jungle: A Biography of F.Spencer Chapman, D.S.O.
Chatto & Windus 1975 Hardcover Very Good Good/Fair 23 Cm 
374pp, over 500g. Faults? repaired tear on dj, previous owner name. Reviewer says >>> Interesting biography of a largely forgotten explorer, war hero and educationalist, with occasional insights into the snobby British class system. Frederick Spencer Chapman, DSO & Bar, ED (10 May 1907 - 8 August 1971) was a British Army officer and World War II veteran, most famous for his exploits behind enemy lines in Japanese occupied Malaya. His medals include the following: the Polar Medal, Gill Memorial Medal, Mungo Park Medal, and the Lawrence of Arabia Memorial Medal. << His books include Northern Lights, 1932. Watkins' Last Expedition, 1934. Lhasa: The Holy City, 1938. Helvellyn to Himalaya, 1940. Memoirs of a Mountaineer, 1945 (combined reprint of the above two). The Jungle is Neutral, 1948 Living Dangerously, 1953. Lightest Africa, 1955. Chapman's extraordinary life is a tale that should be more well-known, perhaps as much as TE Lawrence's is known. [as an aside it's amazing that a biopic wasn't made using Kenneth More in the lead]

8 Harvey, Robert The Mavericks : The Military Commanders who Changed the Course of History
UK Constable 2008 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 24 Cm 
442pp & a kilo for post. In an age of backroom generals who command from far behind troop lines, it is often forgotten that wars have been won or lost by the personality and leadership of a maverick commander. In twelve riveting portrait/chapters, best-selling historian, Robert Harvey, explores the mind and the action of such men. From the the Mediterranean sea Harvey investigates what makes a military commander different - a charismatic leader of men, rational under fire, unafraid to improvise or lead his men into victory against the odds. Packed with compelling, insightful analysis and story telling. Leaders examined include Washington, Rommel, Monty.

Captain Bligh and Mr Christian: The Men and the Mutiny, Hough, Richard
11 Hough, Richard Captain Bligh and Mr Christian: The Men and the Mutiny
USA E.p. Dutton & Co. Inc, New York 1973 1st Hardcover Very Good/Good No Jacket 24.5cm 
320pp, mapped endpapers & more than 500g to post. The Bounty set out in 1788 to transport breadfruit from Tahiti to the West Indies as a cheap source of food for slaves. But the combination of the tough discipline of Bligh and the attractions of life in the South Sea Islands drove Fletcher Christian and part of the crew to mutiny, and Bligh along with those loyal to him were set adrift in the ship's launch. Their remarkable 3,600-mile, open-boat voyage to Timor is one of the great feats of navigation, while the story of the mutineers' discovery of the uninhabited island of Pitcairn and their attempt to fashion a community away from the pursuing ships of the Royal Navy is as tense as it is horrific. This drama of mutiny, courage, remarkable voyages, human deceit and treachery, first published in 1972, provides an account of this episode of maritime history.

17 Macy, Ed Apache The Man, the MacHine, the Mission
Harper Press 2008 Hard Cover Excellent Excellent 24.5cm 
What's it about? In 2007, Ed Macy's Apache squadron was dispatched to Afghanistan's notorious Helmand Province, with the mission to fight alongside and protect the men on the ground by any means necessary. When a marine goes missing in action, Macy and his team are the Army's only hope of bringing him back alive. With a soldier strapped to each side of two gunships, they must land in the heart of Jugroom Fort, a Taliban stronghold, and come face-to-face with hordes of their unrelenting enemy. What follows is a breathtaking rescue, unlike any the world has ever seen. -.-.-.-.-. reviews - This book is a personal account of the author's experiences as an AH-64 Apache helicopter gunship pilot during combat operations in Afghanistan. Very compelling, exciting, honest, and full of, as one might expect from a decorated combat veteran, humour. Does a good job of explaining that even with lots of technology, combat is still very personal, often complicated, and dangerous. 374pp bw photos. After a "brief" read I totally concur with +++ review, it's a book you'll flick open & two hours later you're still in there, it's Generation Kill but with a purpose.
