FEW SURVIVED: A COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY OF SUBMARINE ACCIDENTS AND DISASTERS., Gray, Edwyn.

Leo Cooper, London, 1986. 
260 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 043618740X B&w photographs, drawings. "This is the first comprehensive account of every peacetime submarine disaster from 1774 to the present day. It is, however, very far from being just a list of what sunk, where, when and why, for the author examines most of the important sinkings in considerable detail, analysing what went wrong and describing the attempts made at rescuing the crew and/or the vessel. In this way he traces t he development of the submarine from the earliest experimental submersibles of the late eighteenth century down to the nuclear-powered monsters of today, describing in parallel the developments of underwater rescue operations and survival tec h n i q u e s ....The appendices include the most comprehensive and accurate list of submarine disasters ever printed, updated to June 1985, in the compilation of which the author has had the co-operation of the US, French, Italian, Danish and Japan es e Na vi es , as well as that of the RN Submarine Museum and the German 'U-Boot Archiv'." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has been price clipped, has very light edge wrinkling, small area of laminate loss at bottom of front pan el . Ver y G oo d+/ Very Good

MY FATHER'S SON: MEMORIES OF WAR AND PEACE., Mowat, Farley
6 Mowat, Farley MY FATHER'S SON: MEMORIES OF WAR AND PEACE.
Toronto Key Porter 1992 1550134302 / 9781550134308 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
340 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs, map. "In the summer of 1943, a young Farley Mowat landed on the beaches of Sicily with the First Canadian Infantry division as part of the initial Allied assault on western Europe. For a year and a half his division fought its way up the Italian 'boot' in a series of savage and bloody battles, driving the German army slowly northwards. As (he) saw his comrades killed and wounded in battle, his courage and convictions were constantly tested. His spirit was sustained, in part, by his strong relationship with his parents, especially his father. Angus Mowat, a wounded veteran of the Great War, was only able to re-enlist for home service. His many letters to his son combined idealism and his belief in the power of the written word with an enormous zest for life and instinctive irreverence for authority. 'My Father's Son' begins where Farley Mowat's earlier book about his war experiences, 'And No Birds Sang', ended, recreating the later years of the Italian campaign with its devastating effects on the young men who bore the brunt of it." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket minor edge wear, minor rubbing, small crease at top of both hinges, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
