THE BARE FACTS:  MY LIFE AS A STRIPPER., Ample, Annie.
1 Ample, Annie. THE BARE FACTS: MY LIFE AS A STRIPPER.
Toronto Key Porter 1988 1550130943 / 9781550130942 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
177 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w photographs. "She was notorious for taking off her clothes. Movies, magazines and TV shows, and fame as 'the girl with the million dollar chest' after her breasts were insured by Lloyds of London, helped create her very successful career as celebrity stripper, 'Annie Ample'. But behind all the hype was a real person. (Annie) looks back candidly on her turbulent childhood in a small town in California and her showbiz start as a 'go-go' dancer in a local club. 'Annie Ample' was the ingenuous character she devised to exploit the sex industry rather than be exploited by it. Whether she is recalling her narrow escapes from lascivious film producers, her famous plastic surgery, her wild nights with the jet set or the stampede of the paparazzi when she went sunbathing at Cannes, Annie's irrepressible sense of humor and earthy revelations make her story a compelling read, even when it borders on the tragic." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and at top of front flap.

Pearson, Harlow, 2006. 
430 pp, small 8vo (7 3/4" H), soft cover. ISBN 1405840625 "After their success in Normandy in the summer of 1944 the Allies thought that the war would be 'over by Christmas'. But in the autumn Adolf Hitler decided to take an incredible gamble. I f it had succeeded, he would have seized the crucial supply port of Antwerp, and divided and cut off half the Allied armies in Belgium and Holland. The final outcome could have been their surrender or at best a second 'Dunkirk'. Patrick De l a f o r c e tells the story of the furious fighting and heavy losses and how close Hitler came to being successful. Featuring individual stories from the American, British and German combatants in the Ardennes battle, and illustrated with photog ra ph s an d dr aw i ngs (many from American war artists) and battle plans, this book provides a gripping account of one of the most important battles of the Second World War."

Budding / Sutton, Stroud, Gloucestershire, 1997, reprint. 
141 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, maps, etc. ISBN 1840150017 "This is an account of one small cog in the machinery of the Second World War - the story of the RAF bomber airfield at Downham Market in Norfolk . Every night for three long years young men of RAF Bomber Command flew from this East Anglian airfield in their Stirlings, Lancasters and Mosquitoes to pound into dust the might of Nazi Germany. Their contribution towards winning the war w a s c r u c ial, but the cost in precious lives and equipment was high: 160 aircraft and nearly 900 airmen were lost on operations. Downham Market was notable in a number of ways, not least for the fact that two posthumous Victoria Crosses were wo n by it s pi lo ts (out of a total of only twenty-one for the whole of Bomber Command), and that it was the second of fifteen airfields in England to be equipped with the life-saving fog dispersal device known as FIDO. It was from Downham Mark e t t ha t t h e R AF 's las t bombing sortie of the European air war was flown on 2/3 May 1945. Between 1942 and 1945 at various times the airfield hosted six bomber squadrons: Nos 214, 218 and 623 were Main Force squadrons in No 3 Group, and then f rom Mar ch 1 94 4 No s 5 71, 608 and 635 were a part of the RAF's elite No 8 (Pathfinder) Group. 'Strike Hard' is not so much a chronological history, but a microcosm of Bomber Command during the war years. Supported by more than fifty photog rap hs, maps and pla ns, e ach chap ter f ocuses on a separate aspect of life on the airfield, and of the bomber operations flown from there. The author has drawn on a number of sources, ranging from official to published and private material, to give a f ascin ating dep iction of a bom ber ai rfield at war."

Like other officers of the Special Air Service - the eli te fighting force that made its mark in the desert battles of 1942 - Lieutenant Callum Douglas, veteran of the Tunisian campaign, expects to take part in the invasion of southern Europe. Instead, he and his team of commandos find themselves l o c k e d in a bloody, brutal war amid the rivers and mountains of Yugoslavia, where 120,000 Axis troops are fighting vainly to stamp out a growing faction of dedicated patriots - the Partisans. To his dismay, Douglas learns that the British ha v e be en p ar ac h uting supplies to the Cetniks - a group of so-called freedom fighters, who are, in fact, in league with the Germans. They are in direct conflict with the Partisans and their shadowy, almost mystical leader, a man called Tito. Do ug las 's ori gin al or ders are to fight his way through and make contact with Tito. He is helped in his task by Mila, a bloodthirsty Partisan girl. But Douglas has a secret he dare not share with her. Tito is being supported by the Russians - a nd if h e p rove s to be an ti-British, Douglas has orders to kill him...."
