MACHINE AGE ARMIES., Wheldon, John.

Abelard-Schuman, New York, 1968, first edition. 
237 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w maps/battle plans, photographs. "Citing examples from both World Wars, the Korean War and Vietnam, the author shows how the concept of material destruction of the enemy through attrition warfa re has prevailed in official thinking, despite the persistent lesson of negligible achievement at enormous cost. In his discussion of present trends in machine warfare, he emphasizes the vital importance of army-air mobility, at present bein g p i o n e ered in the U.S.A. The twentieth-century phenomenon of machine warfare has highlighted mankind's alarming slowness in adapting its military ideology to technological innovations. (This book) provides an authoritative and absorbing ins ig h t in to t hi s basic aspect of human behaviour, and stresses the need for fuller study by psychologists of armed group conflict." Two small surface areas of surface paper loss on contents page, tiny corner bump on rear board, minor edge wear. D us t jac ket li ght rubbing/soiling, very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two tiny edge tears, minor browning. 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.
