222 Comfort, Charles Fraser. Introduction by Eric Harrison. Afterword by Charles Fraser C. Jackson. ARTIST AT WAR.
Pender Island, British Coumbia Remembrance Books 1995 0920270212 / 9780920270219 Revised Edition Soft Cover Fine Charles Fraser Comfort. 
197 pp + 4 pp of colour maps, 9" H. Colour plates, b&w portraits. "In 1943, Charles Comfort was sent into battle to make a painter's record of the Canadian army's fight against the Germans on the Italian peninsula. (This) is his account of that fight. Enduring the shellfire, the mud, and the fatigue of battle, Comfort watches war being waged amidst the treasures of centuries of Italian art and culture. From the horrors of Ortona to the jubliant liberation of Rome, (this book) gives us a view of the war unlike any other - the vivid and penetrating view of a soldier armed not just with a rifle but with a paintbrush - and a pen. Originally published in 1956, this new edition features a revised text and 33 colour reproductions of Comfort's wartime paintings, many of which have never before been displayed in public." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.

"In 'Petard's' first commission from 1942 to 1944, she sank three submarines, one German, one Italian, and one Japanese. Each sinking was the scene of a f ierce struggle on the surface with many casualties. Her commission was served mainly in the Eastern Mediterranean, with a short spell with the Eastern Fleet operating out of Ceylon, during which her ship's company were awarded between them t w o G C ' s , one GM, two DSO's, four DSC's, six DCM's and several Mentions in Dispatches...besides those actions in which she was engaged, the author (gunnery control officer in 'Petard') describes her working up, her periods of relaxation, and th e me n w ho s er ved aboard her. The result is a unique record of what it was like to be in a destroyer on active service at the most critical period in British naval history." Minor bump at bottom of rear hinge.

236 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "Ordinary seamen far outnumber their officers, yet most naval books are written from the officers' standpoint. In a wide variety of reminiscences the author reconstructs the matelot's life, whether in corvette, battleship or destroyer, or whether as Royal Navy, Reservist, RNVR or Hostilities Only; he writes both of the pleasures of shipboard life and of the often harsh discipline meted out for lapses from the strict naval code. There were happy ships and unhappy ships, lucky ships and unlucky ships, and he instances experiences from them. Throughout the book he links the experiences of the seamen to the great actions of the war taking place around them, which are thus seen not from the viewpoint of the captain or admiral but the men who fired the guns, the engineers, etc. Thus we get new perspectives on the Battle of the River Plate, Convoy PQ17, the invasion of Sicily, the Battle of Sirte, and many other actions." Includes a Glossary of Lower-deck words and phrases and Appendix: Extracts from King's Rules and Admiralty Regulations 1939 and 1943.

"Alan Cooper writes about an operation which at the time and ever since has captured the imagination of the world - the attack on the German dams in May 1943. This forms a deeply-res earched history of one of the most successful operations of the Second World War carried out by the famous 617 Squadron led by Guy Gibson. This account includes the whole lead up to the final mission; the development of the bouncing bomb, the f o r m i ng of 617 Squadron and the intense course of training carried out to make the operation a success. The raid itself is viewed from both British and German camps; many of the aircrew who took part in 617 operations give their accounts, as d o se ve ra l Germans, including Albert Speer, the Armaments Minister. All in all, the book recreates the excitement and aura of danger and uncertainty which surrounded the dam busters' mission, giving the reader the full story of one of the great es t epi sod es of the war."

216 pp, 8vo (8 3/4"). Pictorial endpapers, b&w plates. "Mr. Cooper takes up his story with the formation of Cromwell's New Model Army, which marked a significant change in cavalry tactics, and closes it with a chapter devoted to the South African War and the years up to the beginning of the 1914 War. In addition, he has written an epilogue to cover the period of cavalry's gradual surrender to mechanisation. Between these points lie nearly three hundred years of history and countless battles which depended for their outcome on the ability and efficiency of the cavalry arm. (He) does not attempt to describe each of these battles in detail; rather, he is concerned, by giving accounts of a series of battles typical of a campaign, or of aspects of the training and tactics of cavalry - Blenheim, Dettingen, Salamanca, Waterloo, Balaclava, etc. - to give a historical impression of the arm's growth and achievements."
