Then, concentrating on major cities from coast to coast, they look at pro je ct s e mb od yi ng a lternative movements that are suggestive of possible future directions, projects such as: Corridart in Montreal; Robson Square in Vancouver; the Pavilion '70 ski chalet in St. Sauveur, Quebec; Toronto's Eaton Centre; Winnipe g's St .

In San Serano, Joanna felt the terror strike, before dark hands were seizing her to kidnap her and take her elsewhere. In the Empire of Ferryth, Caris watched a wizard murdered by a figure that vanished into a tunnel of darkness. And abominations were crossing through the weakening fabric of the Void. And in the Silent Tower, where every stone was sealed and spelled against all magic, Antryg Windrose, student of the Dark Mage, was supposed to be going mad." 2.

Then (Joanna) had believed his brain was possessed by the Dark Mage Suraklin, though now she knew that Suraklin had chosen Gary Fairchild. But guilty or innocent, Antryg was separated from her by the awesome Void between worlds, far from any hope of rescue. Nevertheless, she had to save him. Suraklin was planning to gain immortality by placing his mind in a computer that would get its power by draining the life-force from all on both worlds, dooming everyone to eternal misery and hopelessness. And only Antryg was strong enough a wizard to challenge the Dark Mage." 3. Dog Wizard - 389 pp, 1993, ISBN 0345377141 - "The Citadel of Wizards was under siege. Deep in the Vaults beneath the walled city, gates into inhuman realities were opening and closing without warning. Monsters emerged from other dimensions; and ancient, malign magics came to life under the influence of cosmic chaos. Someone was tampering with the Void. The Council of Wizards blamed Antryg Windrose, the rebel mage who had fled their justice to find haven in the City of Angels. Across dimensions, they reached out to bring him back - ." 4.

But it was no mere case of nerves that had started twisting her magic. Something sinister was weaving portents of doom into even the simplest of her spells. Something fearful was invading her dreams with images of frightful evil. And Kyra woke to the chill certainty that her young sister Alix was soon to marry - and soon to die."

Detailed information is given on each vehicle, including design and development history, variant details and full specificatio n s t a b les. In this way the book builds into an authoritative review of such tracked vehicles as the Marder series of self-propelled guns, the Tiger, King Tiger, Jagdtiger, Jagdpanther and StuG III.

Heinemann, London, (1979), first edition. 
181 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w reproductions, maps, battle plans. "George Hennell, born about 1785 the son of a Coventry ribbon manufacturer and tradesman, joined Wellington's army in the Peninsula as a Volunteer, was commissioned in the field in the Forty-third Light Infantry, and served through the campaigns of 1812-13. Of his letters home twenty-six (all but two of them unpublished) survive, and these have been edited by the historian Michael Glover with a ge neral introduction, summaries of the events in the campaign covered by the letters, notes and appendices. The discovery of the letters represents a considerable find. Hennell is particularly good at conveying the detail of everyday life i n t h e f i e ld and camp and from his vivid pen the reader can gain a first-hand impression of what it was like to be a young officer on active service more than a century and a half ago. He is exceptional as a reporter because he not only rec ou nt s e ve nt s a s th ey happen but tries to analyse his own reactions to the dangers and horrors through which he is passing. He sometimes illustrated his letters with diagrams and fluent sketches, several of which are reproduced in this book .

278 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "Hans-Ulrich Rudel was called 'the Eagle of the Eastern Front'. This pastor's son from Silesia, born in 1916, Colonel and last Commodore of the successful Stuka squadron 'Immelmann', was the only soldier in World War II to receive the highest German decoration for bravery. The Golden Oak Leaves with Swords and Jewels to the Knight's Cross recognized his unique number of superlative achievements. With 2530 combat missions and his total of successes, unbeaten in all times and nations, he stands far in the front of the world's renowned aerial aces. In low-level attacks, often in the heaviest defensive fire, in his slow 'Cannon-bird' he destroyed 519 Soviet tanks - 17 of them on a single day! On the list of scores achieved by this Stuka combat pilot, who became a living legend to the soldiers of the Eastern Front, there stood at war's end, among others, 1 battleship, 1 cruiser, 1 destroyer, 70 landing craft and nine attested aircraft, plus hundreds of motor vehicles, numerous artillery, anti-tank and anti-aircraft postions, as well as armored convoys and bridges. Twelve comrades - six Stuka crews - were saved by him from capture or death. When he tried to rescue another crash-landed crew from Russian territory in 1944, he was taken prisoner, fled with a bullet in his shoulder, covered some 50 kilometers through the Soviet hinterlands, and reached the German lines again. Shortly after this audacious, exhausting flight, the wounded man was flying in combat again. Shot more than thirty times by ground fire - but never once by a fighter plane - wounded five times, the fervent sportsman took a direct anti-aircraft hit on the Odor front and lost his right leg. Just six weeks later the 'Bravest of the Brave', as the soldiers also called him, was flying again despite being forbidden to ---" This is a heavy book and may require extra postage, depending on destination.

THE DUCHESS OF WINDSOR: THE UNCOMMON LIFE OF WALLIS SIMPSON., King, Greg.
13 King, Greg. THE DUCHESS OF WINDSOR: THE UNCOMMON LIFE OF WALLIS SIMPSON.
Citadel / Kensington, New York, 2003. 
556 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 0806524642 "It was the love story of the century - the king and the commoner. In December 1936, King Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry ' the woman I love,' Wallis Warfield Simpson, a twice-divorced American who quickly became one of the twentieth century's most famous personalities, a figure of intrigue and mystery, both admired and reviled. Wrongly blamed for the abdication crisis, Wallis suffered hostility from the Royal Family and much of the world . Yet interest in her story has remained constant, resulting in a small library of biographies that convey a thinly veiled animosity toward their subject. The truth, however, is infinitely more fascinating than the shallow, pathetic portrait t h a t has often been painted. Using previously untapped sources, (the author) presents a complete and, for the first time, sympathetic portrait of the Duchess that sifts the decades of rumor and accusation to reveal the woman behind the legend. F ro m he r birth in Pennsylvania during the Gilded Age to her death in Paris in 1986, King takes the reader through a world of privilege, palaces, high society, and love with the accompaniment of hatreds, feuds, conspiracies, and lies. The cast of cha ra cte rs is vast: politicians and presidents, dictators and socialites. Twenty-four pages of (b&w) photographs reveal the life of the Duchess in all its incomparable glamour and romance." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership mar ks.

"By the midsummer of 1943 the Wehrmacht had fallen back behind the Straits of Sicily in the Mediterranean and had begun to build, with fe verish haste, the Atlantic Wall in the west and the East Wall in Russia - in fact to construct their Fortress Europe, with the intention of defending it to the last. Here the author sets out simply and concisely the political, economic an d m i l i t a r y organization of the Third Reich, its strength and its weaknesses. He traces the almost unbelievable chain of events within Germany during the last two years of the Second World War that saw the Fortress liberated or overrun, and t h e wh ol e of t he R eich engulfed, and then inundated, by the invading armies of the allies. This authoritative account is based mainly on German materials, although other language sources, particularly Russian, Italian and Anglo-American, h ave a ls o b een u sed in co mpi ling this intriguing narrative." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine,a few tiny foxing marks and very light browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket is price clipped, has very light edge wear/wrinkli ng - li ght wea r at to p of rea r fl ap-f old, light rubbing. VG/VG
