221 pp + section of b&w plans, photographs at rear, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 0920474012 B&w plans, maps, reproductions throughout text - plans and photographs at rear. "...an adventure tale of sweeping grandeur: the personal history of a youth who volunteered for war as a loyal subject of George II when New England rose against the French fortress of Louisburg commanding the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the approaches to Quebec and menacing the Boston fishery. The story is a romance in the true sense: it tells of the fears and awareness of a vast world opening to the mind of a young soldier and mariner early away from home and toughened by the cruelty and challenge of armed conflict and the harsh reality of the elements. The novel is based on a single page of pencil-written journal left behind by a young volunteer from Massachusetts: the author has not been able to determine the boy's name or where he lived but only that he served in Pomeroy's regiment at the capture of Louisburg in 1745. The history of Jonathan Steele unfolds as that of a God-fearing thoughtful man whose love of humanity does not blind him to the irony and tragedy of people living in difficult days, nor to their weakness or folly."

THE BATTLE OF BROOKLYN 1776., Gallagher, John J.  Foreword by James Dingeman.
109 Gallagher, John J. Foreword by James Dingeman. THE BATTLE OF BROOKLYN 1776.
Sarpedon, New York, 1995. 
206 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 188511902X B&w photographs, reproductions, maps/battle plans. "It is not often realized that in Brooklyn, New York, for a few tense hours in 1776, the fate of the entire United States hung by a thread. An American defeat, the Battle of Brooklyn has been all but neglected in our collective memory for what it earned with the blood of its participants - honored status as one of history's great battles. Besides being the largest cl ash of the Revolution, in terms of both troops and casualties, the action at Brooklyn (sometimes called 'The Battle of Long Island') brought the fledgling American republic to the brink of disaster. At the height of the fighting, only the va l i a n t s acrifice of one regiment - the Marylanders - staved off a catastrophe. The British army, meanwhile, executed a three-pronged surprise assault with admirable professionalism. The wilds of Brooklyn became a killing ground for the Britis h an d He ss i an troops who were able to begin the war convinced the colonials would not be able to stand against their onslaught of bullets and steel. While a drama of rare instensity on its surface, the Battle of Brooklyn also holds a larger si gn ifi ca nce : t he Ki ng's men did not invade Brooklyn to face other kings' men; they were sent to fight a population. Rules of engagement were uncertain and passions for and against the rebellion ran high. When the smoke cleared at Brooklyn, i n 1 776, th e mo dern ag e of 'democratic warfare' had begun....The Battle of Brooklyn was a victory for the British Empire. But contained within the triumph was a demonstration of the type of American resolve and courage that would eventually r esul t in inde pende nce f or t he Un ited States." Faint cigarette odor.

"Marsland Gander is a man who has 'been places and seen things', things which he records in this autobiography of a successful journalist with all the vigour and humour of a great adventure. Born and brought up in London's East End, the future War Correspondent and Radio Critic started his career on a local paper and worked his way up. Since those early days he has visited more than thirty countries and met many famous men and women. His assignments have given him an 'inside slant' on some of the biggest stories of recent times, and in several instances he is now able to disclose information which was hitherto suppressed by the censor. (He) witnessed the much criticised campaign in Southern France, the sensational capture of Leros, the Airborne drop across the Rhine and the liberation of Rome, Athens and Amster-dam. Since the war he has toured America from coast to coast and has much to say of recent radio and television developments. There are personal anecdotes of President Truman, the Pope, Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, George Lansbury, of famous soldiers like Montgomery and Alexander, and many others."

Rupert Hart-Davis, London, 1971, first edition. 
319 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 024664043X B&w plates, maps. "There has never been a company like the East India Company: it ruled over nearly one-fifth of the world's population, possessed its own army and navy, its own c ivil service, and even its own church. It became the greatest military power in Asia and had a revenue larger than that of Great Britain itself. This is the story of the London merchants who, in their persistent and dogged quest for trade w i t h t h e East, struggled with misunderstanding and suspicion, rivalry with the French and the collapse of the authority of the Indian emperors. The Company brought the brilliant military conquests of men like Robert Dlive and Warren Hastings, an d th e a cq ui sitions of Sir Stamford Raffles and men who spent their entire careers in its service. There were the conquests of the Wellesleys, the intrigues and battles for power with the British government, the prejudice and envy inspired b y t he re tu rn hom e o f wealthy retired employees, and the compromise which ended in the appointment of government selected Governors-General. The story of the East India Company is one of adventure, triumph and disaster, pride and loyalty, that spa ns more th an two hund red years of British history: it is also the story of the foundation of the British Empire in India."

Arthur Baker, London, (1976). 
224 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "There were many different Clives. The gentle lover his wife knew; the fearless and often unorthodox army leader; the astute polititician who tangled with the directors of the East India Company; and the generous, dutiful son who so frequently came to the aid of his economically inept father. In his excellent biography, Richard Garrett considers all of them. He traces Clive's spectacular career from its early days on the battlefields to the years of power, when he could enthrone or depose an Indian prince according to the needs of the moment. The author describes such battles as Plassey and the siege of Arcot, and he deals with the tragic climax at the end of Cl ive's ca reer when Parliament very nearly brought about his ruin..." 3" sq. area of very light browning on free front endpaper - probably caused by previous owners bookplate.
