PRAGUE WINTER:  A PERSONAL STORY OF REMEMBRANCE AND WAR, 1937-1948., Albright, Madeleine.  With Bill Woodward.
1 Albright, Madeleine. With Bill Woodward. PRAGUE WINTER: A PERSONAL STORY OF REMEMBRANCE AND WAR, 1937-1948.
New York Harper 2012 0062030310 / 9780062030313 Very Good+ Very Good+ 
467 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "(T)akes readers from the Bohemian capital's thousand-year-old castle to the bomb shelters of London, from the desolate prison ghetto of Terezin to the highest councils of European and American government. Albright reflects on her discovery of her family's Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland's tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. Often relying on eyewitness descrip-tions, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exiled leaders and collaborators, victims and killers. These events of enormous complexity are nevertheless shaped by concepts familair to any growing child: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, the quest for independence, and the difference between right and wrong. At once a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history, 'Prague Winter' serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past - as seen through the eyes of one of the international community's most respected and fascinating figures." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds.

298 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Signed and dated by author on title page: "Earle Birney 22 Oct 1967 Toronto". "Readers who experienced the years of the great depression, in this country or elsewhere, will find their memories painfully and perhaps fruitfully stirred; younger readers will doubtless gain new understanding of the struggles, miseries and frustrations of those heartbreaking times that preceded the excitement and activity of war. Students of politics and the social scene should find much to interest them in the story of Communist, Trotskyist and other organizations that formed and operated in Canada during the long years of poverty, unemployment and unrest. Its blend of sympathy, irony and humour, and its frank discussions of so many questions which are close to us all earn for this compelling novel a rightful place beside the major novels of this decade."

13 Lucas, James. Foreword by the Rt Hon Sir Bernard Braine. LAST DAYS OF THE THIRD REICH: THE COLLAPSE OF NAZI GERMANY, MAY 1945.
New York William Morrow 1986 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Very Good Very Good 
241 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). "Buttressed by more than 100 maps and photographs, (this) is the first account of the fall of the Third Reich and what happened to its soldiers as the nations that had been forcibly made a part of Hitler's satanic empire exacted their retribution. Here are the stories of quite ordinary people over whom there swept a destructive war and who have not forgotten those events although they occurred more than forty years ago. There are not merely the stories of what happened to the Germans - who had made the mistake of starting a war and then losing it - but also the first-person recollections of people of other nations. On the Eastern Front, the fighting had taken on a dreadful, bitter aspect early on: Three years of intensive, epic conflict in which each side had seemingly tried to outdo the other in atrocity and terror had not prepared the ground for peace and reconciliation. In Germany, propaganda predictions of the horrors and brutalities of the Red Army were to prove all too true. The brutality of the Nazis would be fully paralleled by that of the conqueror. For the governors of Hitler's empire, their families, wives and children, escape from the approaching apocalypse meant running the gauntlet of now-confident partisans on the road to safety. But fear of reprisals was not confined to the vanquished. Exiles from Russia, anti-Communists, deserters, even ex-prisoners of war, knew well what hard fate awaited them in the cold heart of Russia. This compelling account fully captures the tension, turmoil and tragedy of the last days of the Third Reich."

114 pp + appendix (8 pp), 8vo (8 1/2" H). "In 1937, Mao Tse-tung, in retreat after ten years of battling the Nationalist troops of Chiang Kai-shek, wrote a succinct pamphlet that has become one of the most influential documents of our time. This treatise, the first systematic analysis of guerrilla warfare, established Mao as the architect of a new method of warfare. Within the last two decades, Mao's study has become the basic textbook for waging Communist revolutionary warfare in underdeveloped and emergent areas throughout the world. It provided the strategy for Ho Chi Minh's protracted campaigns in Indochina and for Castro's successful Cuban revolution."

THE RUIN OF J. ROBERT OPPENHEIMER AND THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN ARMS RACE., McMillan, Priscilla J.
15 McMillan, Priscilla J. THE RUIN OF J. ROBERT OPPENHEIMER AND THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN ARMS RACE.
New York Viking 2005 0670034223 / 9780670034222 First Edition Near Fine Near Fine 
373 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs. "On April 12, 1954, the nation was astonished to learn that scientist J. Robert Oppeheimer faced charges of violating national security. The brilliant leader of the Manhattan Project had been cast into disgrace overnight. Was the arrogant genius, the charismatic head of the team that had developed the atomic bomb and ended World War II, really a traitor? In this riveting narrative, (the author) draws on newly declassified documents, unpublished manuscripts, private correspondence, and decades of unique interviews with the major characters in the story to present, at long last, the truth about the downfall of America's most famous - and famously enigmatic - scientist. (The book) focuses a laser on those fraught years from 1949 to 1955, to chronicle the firestorm that surrounded Oppenheimer and the entire atomic enterprise in the years just after the war. These were the years that saw power shift from the scientist who had created the bomb, and were increasingly afraid of it, to the politicians who wanted to use it for their own purposes. A cabal of hard-line Air Force officials, anti-Communist politicians, and rival scientists came together to seize control of U.S. nuclear policy and build ever more deadly weapons aimed at the Soviet Union. One ambitious, relentless man - Edward Teller - used this opportunity to support his own ominous rise to authority, to promote the founding of the Livermore laboratory as a challenge to Los Alamos, and to redirect national resources into development of the controversial hydrogen bomb. He knew that only one man had the vision and abilities to thwart him: the magnetic Oppenheimer, who led a group of like-minded and farsighted liberal scientists advocating arms control. Teller found the perfect allies in Lewis Strauss - a highly partisan Republican banker and businessman, and a key figure in the increasingly polititcized Atomic Energy Commission - and in William Borden, a young congressional assistant. One breathtakingly beautiful Washington spring, in secret hearings in a rundown building off the Mall, as the nation's gaze was focused on the Army-McCarthy hearings, Strauss, Borden and Teller sprang their trap."

Toronto Ryerson Press 1967 First Edition Very Good Very Good 
315 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w photographs, maps. "Allied intervention (in the Russian Civil War) took place in three main theatres; Northern and Southern Russia as well as Siberia. Canadians served in all these places - in fact Canada was the major Commonwealth contributor to the intervention in Siberia - and a superficial account of the events and their political implications is contained in the official history of the Canadian Army in the First World War. John Swettenham, who drafted the Canadian account, now treats the subject in depth and in international perspective. Official British records for the period (were at the time of printing) still witheld from scholars; those in Ottawa, however, are not and these have been consulted to throw new light on the motives and actions of the intervening powers. In this critical assessment the story of the Allied operations in Russia has been written against the double background of the issues and events of the Russian Civil War itself and of the international intrigues and rivalries of the erstwhile Allies; thus the inverventionists' role can be seen in a broad perspective. The reasons for failure - so that Bolshevik Russia emerged 'thoroughly militarised - bitterly hostile' are plainly given." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, minor soiling/rubbing, a few tiny scratches on front panel.
