New York St. Martin's Griffin 1995 0312125615 / 9780312125615 Very Good 
445 pp, 8 3/16" H. "The apparent vulnerability of the Habsburg Empire at the time of Maria Theresa's accession destabilized the whole of Europe and, with Frederick the Great's invasion of Silesia, a cycle of violence was initiated that lasted for eight years and ravaged much of the continent. The vast conflict, which involved almost all the European powers and their empires, is the subject of (this book). (It) provides a highly readable narrative of a complex period that fundamentally shaped the European state system. The author explores the often changing war aims of the major belligerents - Austria, France, Great Britain, Prussia, Piedmont-Sardinia, and Spain - and links diplomatic and military events to the political and social context from which they arose." Interior - a few pages with a tiny soft corner bump, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - light edge wear, small coft crease at top rear corner.

TUG OF WAR:  THE ALLIED VICTORY THAT OPENED ANTWERP., Whitaker, W. Denis and Whitaker, Shelagh.
4 Whitaker, W. Denis and Whitaker, Shelagh. TUG OF WAR: THE ALLIED VICTORY THAT OPENED ANTWERP.
Toronto Stoddart 2000 0773732268 / 9780773732261 Second Edition, revised. Very Good Very Good 
470 pp, 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs and maps/battle plans. "Antwerp, Leopold Canal, Woensdrecht, Breskens Pocket, Walcheren Island - these place names live on in the memories of World War Two veterans of Canadian infantry and armoured divisions who fought in the mud and wet against an unbending enemy. It was 1944 and the Canadian army, with divisions from the U.K., U.S., and Poland, had been given the difficult task of liberating the port of Antwerp and clearing both banks of the Scheldt River. The bitter Battle of the Scheldt lasted 86 days, and took the lives of more than 12,000 Allied soldiers. Brigadier General Denis Whitaker was a lieutenant-colonel in that battle, commanding the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry. For this book, he interviewed more than 150 men who fought alongside him on the Dutch polders. Meticulously researched in Europe and Canada, (this book) does not tread lightly on accepted notions of military historians. Revised with a new afterword, this important true story of nineteen- and twenty-year-old soldiers, many of whom died miserably on the sodden polders of Zeeland, deserves to be read again and again." One small corner bump. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at bottom of rear flap-fold.
