Hard Cover. Near Fine / Very Good+. ISBN: 1557500207. 368 Pages - 34 Photos - 11 Line Art Drawings - 58 Illustrations.This is the story of the remarkable men of 1st Marine Raider Battalion, known by the name of its founding commander, the legendary jungle fighter Merritt A. "Red Mike" Edson. Edson's Raiders provided the vanguard of a U.S. Marine Corps experiment with special lightly-armed, mobile "commando" units in the Pacific. From 1942 to 1943, these highly trained volunteers fought seven critical battles in the Solomon Islands--with names like Tulagi, Tasimboko, the Matanikau River and the Dragon's Peninsula. They were desperate, bloody affairs fought against some of the most experienced jungle fighters in the Japanese empire. Twenty-four Raiders fought with such valor that they had ships named in their honor, all but one posthumously. Joseph Alexander provides an abundance of first-person accounts from Edson to such hard-nosed NCOs as Angus Goss, Walter Burak, and Anthony Palonis. His portrayal of the Raiders' defense of Guadalcanal's Henderson Field along an elevation known ever since as Edson's Ridge, shows why that three-day conflict became an indisputable touchstone of Marine Corps history. $34.50

"Hap" Arnold, an incurable maverick whom the U.S. Army never learned to control, became, nonetheless, one of only four permanent five-star generals in the nation's history, and one of America's most important military leaders of all time. During forty-one years of active service, he compiled an unparalleled record as an airman and was truly the father of the modern Air Force. In 1911, four years after his graduation from West Point, the Wright brothers taught him to fly, and he became the holder of U.S. Army pilot's license number two. His rise through the ranks was marked by controversy, and when he took command of the Army Air Corps in 1938, it was a puny collection of 20,000 men and a few hundred planes, none good enough to face Germany's modern air force.

There have been some studies of the largest ghettos - Warsaw and L0dz - and a few accounts of some of the smaller ones; but very little examination of the ghettos a a whole. This pioneering new history draws heavily on the testimonies of those who suffered in them, making use of a wide range of diaries and memoirs (and exploring the problems inherent in such sources). Other documentary sources - particularly German - are also used, but the intention is to look at the ghettos "from below," focusing on behavior, values, and suffering, as well as on the heroism and the passiveness of the Jewish communities. Never before has personal testimony been so extensively used and systematically evaluated to write a history of the East European ghettos. $47.50

Patton's magnificent Third Army across German-occupied Europe and into Hitler's redoubt in the last year of World War II. Their actions in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Czechoslovakia and Austria give a new dimension to the term "fluid warfare". They only needed one general order--to seek out the enemy, trap and destroy him. This they did, driving on in fair weather and foul, across good going and bad. Their story is one of team work, of armour, infantry and aircraft, working together with a perfection that even amazed the Germans, who had always considered themselves as the masters of the Blitzkrieg. It is also the story of a triumph of administration as thousands of trucks carried forward the supplies so vital to keep an Army of that size moving and fighting. It is the story of American ingenuity, of meeting every challenge with new battle winning ideas. $17.50

New hard bound still shrink wrapped, 704 pages, 90 illustrations, 16 maps, The German siege and Soviet defense of Leningrad in World War II was an epic struggle in an epic war, a drama of heroism and human misery unmatched in the annals of modern warfare. While innumerable writers have dealt at length with the besieged city itself, David Glantz provides for the first time the definitive military history of the conflict waged beyond the city’s borders. One of the first major Soviet cities threatened by the German blitzkrieg, Leningrad was as much a symbolic target as it was a strategic one for Adolf Hitler, who fully expected the birthplace of the Russian Revolution to be reduced to rubble quickly and with ease. The Red Army’s ferocious defense of the city, however, made that impossible. Glantz digs deep to recount the full story of how these two military giants bludgeoned each other for nearly three years with a relentless barrage of offensives and counter-offensives designed to crush one another, in horrendous weather and a harsh terrain and with staggering loss of life on both sides. His richly detailed history shows how battles and campaigns were conceived, engaged, and resolved—including a half dozen or more "forgotten battles" that took place during the blockade. He explains how the struggle for Leningrad impacted other theaters of operation along the Eastern Front, eventually forcing the Germans into their long and costly retreat back toward Berlin. Glantz also provides insights into conditions within the city, adding new details to the horrors of the siege; sheds new light on partisan warfare in the countryside surrounding Leningrad; and corrects many errors found in earlier works. Based on an unparalleled access to Russian archival sources and going far beyond the military aspects of such renowned works as Harrison Salisbury’s 900 Days, Glantz’s book is a testament to the nearly two million Russians who lost their lives during the Leningrad conflict and confirms his status as the preeminent authority on the Russian military experience in World War II.

Very Good / Very Good(-). ISBN: 1877853011. xxxiii, 692 pages, numerous illus & maps, notes, bibliog, index. This is the story of the gallant Corps of men whose pride is that they are "first to fight for right and Freedom; " the men who expect to guard the streets of heaven after having vanquished their country's last foes on, earth. They have been fighting since 1775, when they were organized in a Philadelphia tavern to help George Washington win our forefathers' long war for freedom against King George III. Having achieved this aim, the Marines (as well as the Army and Navy) were disbanded, only to be called back to service in a few years to fight the French and then the Barbary pirates, and then King George again. They have been in all the nation's big wars ever since and most of the small ones, even fighting Indians in the swamps of Florida. Most Americans were at peace in 1871; the Marines were busy that year chastising the Koreans over a barbarous reception they had given some American citizens a short time earlier. Most Americans were at peace in the years before and after the first World War; the Marines in those years were fighting to bring order in Haiti, a land ravaged by such bloodthirsty fanatics as Charlemagne Peralte, and in Nicaragua, torn asunder by the elusive fellow-traveling bandit, Augusto Sandino. In the jazz age they guarded the U. S. Mail against home-grown bandits ("Shoot, and shoot to kill, " were their orders) and at any time over a period of a century they were likely to be keeping the peace in Shanghai or Tientsin or battering down unfriendly forts on the Pearl River in south China. As one gunnery sergeant put it in 1918..."in peace th' stuff flies around and war looms ahead. In war th' stuff flies around-and peace looms ahead. " In between the little wars and the big ones, in which the Marines were given such tough nuts to crack as Belleau Wood, Blanc Mont, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Iwo Jima, and Inchon, the Marines managed to develop amphibious warfare, perhaps the most important tactical innovation of World War II. Meanwhile they have constantly had to fight off attacks from enemies at. home who for reasons of their own were attempting to abolish the Corps or at least reduce it to a ceremonial remnant of itself. Time and again the Marines have been saved only by public opinion, the Congress of the United States, and their own fighting-spirit. Soldiers of the Sea tells the story of those officers and men who have made up the Corps and who have fought the country's battles on land, at sea, in the air, and in the committee rooms of Congress in victorious actions against such formidable foes as the Barbary pirates, the Sultan of Kuala Batu, the German army, the Japanese navy, and several Presidents of the United States.

[004131] Maier, Georg. Drama Between Budapest and Vienna: The Final Battles of the 6. Panzer-Armee in the East - 1945. Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada: J.J. Fedorowicz, 2003. First Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Glossy Hard Cover/Boards. New / No Jacket Issued. ISBN: 0-921991-7-89. 509 pages, nearly 1,000 footnotes, 16 pages of photos, 124 appendices and a separate 32 page B&W & color map book. Georg Maier, the former Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations of the 6. (SS)-Panzer-Armee, has written not only a monumental history of his former field army but a sweeping account of the little-known fighting on the southern portion of the Eastern Front in the final months of the war. Maier provides a truly objective overview of those operations by making use of primary sources documents, war diaries and surviving senior commanders to show the reader how decisions were made at senior levels of command and how certain post-war memoirs have only distorted the picture of what really happened in the final few months of the war. As such, it encompasses the operations of four different Waffen-SS corps and, by extension, nearly all of the "name" divisions of the Waffen-SS: The 1. SS-Panzer-Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler," the 2. SS-Panzer-Division "Das Reich," the 3. SS-Panzer-Division "Totenkopf," the 5. SS-Panzer-Division "Wiking," the 9. SS-Panzer-Division "Hohenstaufen" and the 12. SS-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend." In addition, many of the most-famous Army armored divisions were involved in this fighting: the 1. Panzer-Division, the 3. Panzer-Division, the 6. Panzer-Division and the 23. Panzer-Division. Maier starts his narrative with part one of a three-part drama: The brutal and ill-fated fighting to relieve the encircled city of Budapest and the IX. SS-Gebirgs-Korps by Armeegruppe Balck (primarily by the IV. SS-Panzer-Korps). He then follows up with act two: A day-by-day account of the successful but operationally relatively inconsequential Gran Offensive of the I. SS-Panzer-Korps and Panzer-Korps "Feldherrnhalle." This is followed by the ill-fated Lake Balaton offensive, where the 6. Panzer-Armee comprised of the I. SS-Panzer-Korps and the II. SS-Panzer-Korps, among other formations was bled white combating prepared Soviet defenses in terrain that was completely ill suited for armored warfare. He concludes the text portion of the book with act three, which details the remaining two months of the war and includes the efforts of the 6. Panzer-Armee to defend Vienna and prevent the Soviet Army from advancing into the Reich. In the course of his narrative, Maier provides insights into the political wrangling of certain generals and presents a first-hand account of the handling of the infamous "cuff title" order issued by Hitler. (Maier personally presented the Teletype message to the Commander-in-Chief of the 6. Panzer-Armee, SS-Oberstgruppenführer Sepp Dietrich, in which Hitler demanded his elite formations remove their identifying cuff titles). Includes separate 32 page full-color map booklet. $115.00

He witnessed the traditional pomp of imperialism: as a prisoner in post-war labour camps - convicted by his own countrymen, though cleared of warguilt by the Nuremberg Tribunal - he was a victim of the chaos following defeat. Between these two extremes he spent forty years at the centre of events, and whether the balance he maintained there was the result of a clear or an ambivalent conscience is still a matter of conjecture. In these Memoirs he gives the first full account of his activities as military attache in the United States from 1913-15; the story of Allenby's campaign in the Middle East, as seen from `the other side'; a detailed analysis of the decay of the Weimar Republic and the events which culminated in his Reich Chancellorship. He describes the stand he made at the Lausanne Conference his attempt to modify the hardships imposed on Germany under the Treaty of Versailles and thus prevent the collapse of parliamentary democracy, which he foresaw. He gives an account of his attitude to the National Socialists as their power in- creased; of his collaboration with Hitler and his own house arrest during the Roehm Putsch; and of his subsequent acceptance of the posts of Minister in Vienna and Ambassador to Turkey.
