291 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "The 369th Infantry Regiment was the first African American regiment mustered to fight in World War I. In a war where the vast majority of black soldiers served in the Service of Supply, unloading ships and building roads and railroads, the men of the 369th trained and fought side by side with the French at the front (America's segregation policy prohibited them from serving together with white American soldiers) and ultimately spent more days in the trenches than any other American unit. They went to war in defense of a country afflicted by segregation, Jim Crow laws, lynchings, and racial violence, but a country they believed in all the same. Despite extraordinary odds, the 369th became one of the most successful - and feared - regiments of the war. The Harlem Hellfighters, as their enemies named them, showed extraordinary valor on the battlefield, with many soldiers winning the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor, and were the first Allied unit to reach the Rhine River. A riveting depiction of both social triumph and battlefield heroism." Tiny bump at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing.

"From Bruneval to North Africa, from Normandy to Suez, by parachute and glider the men of the Airborne Forces have gone by air to battle. But their activities have by no means been confined to purely airborne operations - the Special Air Service performed prodigies of valour behind the German Lines in the Western Desert and Italy; the Glider Pilot Regiment fought beside their infantry com rades in Normandy, at Arnhem and across the Rhine. Their post-war successors, maintaining these traditions, have stood between Jew and Arab in Palestine; fought and sweltered in the jungles of Malaya and Borneo; sweated in the Persian Gulf a n d t h e Radfan; choked on the summer dust of Cypriot roads; tasted the grit and sand of Egypt and Jordan in their mess tins; spent more than a deade facing terroritst ambush, bombs and bullets in Northern Ireland; exprienced the subzero temperat ur es an d bi t ing actic winds of the South Atlantic and 'tabbed' across the Falklands to spearhead victory in 1982. Nor should the aircrews who flew them be forgotten, or the air supply despatchers who maintained them, and the units who supporte d t hem . W it h w el l over 100 photographs and illustrations this book is a comprehensive single-volume history of the Airborne Forces. Accounts are given of the airborne actions fought by the British Army, whilst the development of the parachu te a ssau lt and th e us e o f glider-borne troops can be followed from their infancy to the massive 'coup de main' technique employed in the Rhine crossing."

Ward Lock, London, 1973. 
518 pp, large 8vo (9 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 706310012 B&w photographs, reproductions, maps, colour plates. "....the story of two Cavalry regiments, the 14th and 20th Light Dragoons, which were eventually amalgamated after the First World War to form the 14th/20th King's Hussars. Colonel Oatts has written a fascinating and often amusing story of the two Regiments in peace and war, deftly intertwined, and presented against a background of the history of Europe and the dev elopment of the British Empire. He takes us from the Jacobite Rebellions through the long struggle with Napoleon, the Indian Wars, with both Regiments fighting the Boers in South Africa at the turn of the nineteenth century. The horrors a n d d i s c o m forts of the Great War in France and Mesopotamia are fully described. With the rise of Hitler's Germany the horse gave way to the tank and the amalgamated Regiment went through its frustrating period of the Second World War and t he p os t -w ar p er io d as part of the Royal Armoured Corps. The Author takes us up to 1970, with the first visit to the Regiment of the newly appointed Colonel-in-Chief, H.R.H. The Princess Anne. Part of the Regiment was shortly destined to s erv e, for t he fir st tim e, in the Far East and after 1971 play its part in turbulent Ulster....The title of the book is the nickname of the 14th dating from 1813 when the Regiment captured the silver chamber-pot, originally owned by Napoleon, f rom Kin g Jo sep h B onap art e's car ria ge after the battle of Vittoria. It has since been a valued possession of the Officers' Mess."

Picton, Chippenham, 1984, first edition. 
151 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions, uniform studies. "Throughout their long history, which dates from 1715, the Hawks have prided themselves on being good at their job, placing such emphasis on high individual standard of service that the Regiment awards its own medal in appropriate circumstances. Typically, the three battles of which it is proudest, Ramnuggur (1848), Ramadi (1917) and Medicina (1945) were all hard fights won against tremendous odds. The Regiment was formed from an amalgamation of the 14th and 20th Hussars, whose combined history spans every one of the world's major continents and includes such campaigns as the Peninsula, the Indian Mutiny, the Sudan, the South African War, the Western Front, Mesopotamia and Italy, to name but a few. Its first gallantry award was the rare commemorative medal struck for the victory of Preston in 1715, and it is the proud possessor of two Victoria Crosses, both won for the rescue of comrades in the most desperate circumstances. Since World War II the Regiment has served in Libya, Cyprus, the Far East, Ulster and Gemany. It is presently equipped with Chieftain tanks and recently its efficiency led to its being chosen to carry out troop gunner trials with the devastatingly accurate Improved Fire Control System. Bryan Perrett's immensely readable text rightly makes full recognition of the fact that a regiment's reputation is the sum total of its members 'individual effort..."

"Jellalabad, good story though it is, tends to eclipse the other achievements of a regiment which stood firm at Killiekrankie, of whose 4th Battalion in 1944-5 it was said that 'they never had a failure, and never lost an inch of ground', and which, between these two particular campaigns, marched invariably beneath the star of imperial destiny. They were more often abroad than not: in the Flanders of Marlborough and the Spain of Peterborough (who turned them into dragoons), in Gibraltar and the West Indies, in Burma and Afghanistan and Africa. Above all, in India. It was fitting that th eir 1st Battalion should have been the last British troops to leave the country which they had loved and hated for so long...."
