Unpaginated, 10 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs. "Newfoundland history is that of a people struggling against just about everything - storms and ice-fields, pirates and privateers who wanted to rob them of their meagre earnings, Dutch and French raiders sent to wrest their country from them, and last of all, their own 'home' government in far-off England, where Newfoundland was regarded not as a suitable place for settlement so much as a massive fishing station to be exploited" - "So writes Harold Horwood in this book of photographs portraying the vast sweep of history of Newfoundland - from the Norse settlement in A.D. 1005 to the modern-day province whose people are blending the traditions of the sea with the challenges of modern industry." Three tiny scuffs on rear board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling.

THE BLACK WATCH (ROYAL HIGHLAND REGIMENT) (THE 42nd REGIMENT OF FOOT).  FAMOUS REGIMENTS SERIES., Howard, Philip.  Introduction by Lt.-General Sir Brian Horrocks.
124 Howard, Philip. Introduction by Lt.-General Sir Brian Horrocks. THE BLACK WATCH (ROYAL HIGHLAND REGIMENT) (THE 42nd REGIMENT OF FOOT). FAMOUS REGIMENTS SERIES.
Leo Cooper, London, 1969, reprint. 
141 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0850520193 B&w photographs, reproductions. "The Royal Highlanders....the Gallant Forty-Two....The Germans christened them 'the ladies from hell'. Down the stormy centuries from Fontenoy to the Hook in Korea Britain's enemies have called them other less printable names. But when they were first raised as a police force to keep the peace in the turbulent and inaccessible Highlands, the locals nick-named them (in Gaelic, of course) the Black Watch. And the menacing name has stuck. Their old 'black' tartan has stuck too, and today is worn by imitators around the world from Tokyo to Trinidad. It was the first kilted regiment in the British army, the original ancestor of all the o ther famous regiments that were later raised in the Highlands. Until Waterloo Gaelic was the language of the Black Watch, and it is still spoken on occasions. They brought the bagpipes into the British army, because the Highlanders refused t o m a r c h without their pipes. In those early days they charged with claymore and dirk. Today they are fully motorized and mechanized for nuclear war. But the heart of the Black Watch is still Highland. The stern old regiment still keeps it s un i qu e tr ad itions. In the wild places of the world, in the most ferocious battles of the British army where victory was balanced on a bayonet point, the Black Watch has usually been there. And still today he is a man of lead whose imaginati on do es no t tin gl e when the hears the pipes play 'Hieland Laddie' (pipe score at rear of book), and sees the long lines of kilts swinging jauntily down the hill." Faint cigarette odor, minor edge wear, minor browning on spine. Dust jacket is pric e c lipp ed , ha s li ght edge wear/wrinkling, tiny chips and tears at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few very small edge tears, moderate browning on spine and flap-folds.

HONOUR TITLES OF THE ROYAL ARTILLERY., Hughes, B.P., Major General.
125 Hughes, B.P., Major General. HONOUR TITLES OF THE ROYAL ARTILLERY.
Major General B.P. Hughes, n.p., 1988, 2nd edition. 
222 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w reproductions, maps. "Battle Honours form a natural part of (the British soldier's) quest for individuality. In the case of the Royal Artillery, it was in 1833 that King William IV ordered all existing Battle Honours to be replaced by the motto 'Ubique', and that this new Honour should apply throughout the Regiment. Welcome as this Honour has always been, it did not entirely fulfil the wishes of units to retain their individuality. This eventually gave rise, in 1925, to official approval to the granting of Honour Titles to Batteries where certain rules and conditions applied. Gunners know well the history of the Battery in which they are serving, or have served, but little about others. General Hughes has collected and rewritten in one book the stories of all those Batteries (58 at present) who proudly possess an Honour Title. In doing so he has produced a fascinating book which will be of great value and interest not only to Gunners but also to all students of military history." From the Foreword by Field Marshal Sir Geoffrey Baker. One very small corner bump to front board. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling. VG+/VG+

Tandem, London, (1974). 
304 pp, mass market paperback. B&w photos, maps. "In March 1918, when the infant Soviet Government signed a separate peace treaty with Germany, the stage was set for the Allied War of Intervention against the Bolshevik regime. Men, many of whom h ad survived the bloody massacres of the Western Front, found themselves pitched into a dirty, cruel conflict they did not understand. This is the story of British, Japanese, American and French troops in Siberia, sweeping the Bolsheviks from t h e a p proaches to Vladivostock in a series of savage actions; of the Royal Scots and the 339th U.S. Infantry, fighting for their lives in the snow-clad forests of North Russia against a tenacious enemy; of No. 47 Squadron R.A.F., locked in bitt er c om b at w ith the embryo Red Air Force over the steppes of South Russia; of the Green Howards, the Royal Fusiliers, the Hampshire and Middlesex Regiments, the French Chasseurs and others, fighting step by step along the Dvina and Vaga Rivers and th e s tr ate gic railways of North Russia; of the little Royal Navy coastal motor boats that shattered the Red Fleet in Kronstadt. It is a story of great heroism, but also of mutiny and murder as White Russian troops turned on the Allies and def ecte d to th e Re ds i n ever-increasing numbers."

136 Judd, David W. Illustrations from drawings by Lieut. L.C. Mix. THE STORY OF THE THIRTY-THIRD N.Y.S. VOLS: OR TWO YEARS CAMPAIGNING IN VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND.
mBenton & Andrews, Rochester, 1864, Ist edition. 
349 pp, + 76 pp. (Appendices) + ads, small 8vo, hard cover (dark green boards with embossed floral design at corners, gilt decoration - sabre, rifle and wreath - on front cover, repeated on rear cover without gilt) - no dust jacket. B&w illustrations, including tissue-covered frontispiece. "This volume does not propose to review the causes, rise and progress of the unhappy civil strife, which for more than two years has rent our land; neither is it designed to describe all the operations which have marked the war in the single department of Virginia and Maryland. It aims merely, as the title page indicates, at giving a narrative of one of the many Regiments which the Empire State has sent into the field, together with a description of the various campaigns in which it participated...The plan, as will readily be seen, comprises separate sketches of each company until merged into the Regiment; the regimental history from the period of its organization at Elmira in May, 1861, until its return from the war, May, 1863; brief biographies of the various officers, and muster rolls of the men...A double interest attaches to the numerous engravings which embellish the volume, from the fact that instead of being gotten up to ordr, they were 'drawn on the spot' by a skilful artist - an officer of the Regiment - who participated in all the scenes through which it passed. They constitute in themselves a pictorial history of the first two years of the Eastern campaign." The Regiment participated in the battles of Williamsburg, Mechanicsville, Golden's Farm, Second Mechanicsville, Gaines' Farm, Malvern, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Salem Heights among others. Interior - pages browning lightly, free front endpaper missing, ghost signature on preliminary, light scattered foxing on rear endpapers, erased pencil numbers on rear pastedown, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.

REMEMBER WITH ADVANTAGES: A HISTORY OF THE TENTH, ELEVENTH AND ROYAL HUSSARS, 1945-1992., Keown-Boyd, Henry.
139 Keown-Boyd, Henry. REMEMBER WITH ADVANTAGES: A HISTORY OF THE TENTH, ELEVENTH AND ROYAL HUSSARS, 1945-1992.
Leo Cooper, London, (1994), first edition. 
296 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos, maps, color plates. "The 10th Royal Hussars (PWO) and the 11th Hussars (PAO) were both raised in 1715 as regiments of Light Dragoons to deal with troubles north of the Scottish border. Both went on to win huge acclaim until, and indeed after, their amalgamation in 1969 as The Royal Hussars (PWO). Now they have had to face up to yet another amalgamation to form with the 14th/20th Hussars, The King's Royal Hussars. This book, written by a former officer of the 11th Hussars (PAO), traces the history of the two regiments from 1945 until the first amalgamation and then details the sadly short-lived history of The Royal Hussars (PWO) up to the time of the second amalgamation in 1992. Depressing as all that may sound, Henry Keown-Boyd shows that, in spite of all, the regimental spirit, the traditional loyalties, the time-honoured customs and the determination to succeed, survive and flourish. Both regiments have had numerous periods of active service since the Second World War and in this book descriptions of duties in Malaya, Arabia and Northern Ireland, among others, are much enhanced by recollections of those who took part . All of the four original regiments now brought together have their roots deeply planted in the history of the British Army and none are likely to dispute the fact that the new King's Royal Hussars will add further laurels to the wreath.
