148 Lloyd, Mark. THE LONDON SCOTTISH IN THE GREAT WAR.
Leo Cooper, (Barnsley, 2001). 
256 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Initially with the Ist Guards Brigade and later with the 56th (London) Division, the Ist Battalion served in France and Flanders throughout the War. They were the first Territorial soldiers to be committed to battle when, at Messines in 1914, they suffered one-third casualties and were among the last to disengage. So dedicated was the London Scottish to the prosecution of its cause that, by November 1918, the Ist Battalion included only three survivors of the original Battle of Messines. The 2nd Battalion saw action in campaigns as diverse as France and Flanders, Ireland, the Balkans and Palestine where it won two Victoria Crosses. (This book) does not merely set out to recite the oft-told details of famous battles fought and won. Rather it employs a wealth of previously unpublished war journals, diaries and photographs to provide a unique insight into this most auspicious Regiment. It vividly demonstrates the hopes, sufferings and aspirations of the volunteers who not only filled its ranks but, in most cases, made the supreme sacrifice in its cause."

345 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Map endpapers, b&w photographs, maps. "Brave, tough, resourceful, and, rarest of all, blessed with an irreverent sense of humour, (Major-General Lewis) MacKenzie needed all those qualities for the biggest assignment of his military career: striving for peace among the warring factions in the former Yugoslavia. In this riveting memoir, MacKenzie describes how he created Sector Sarajevo, and with a 30-nation UN force set out to liberate the airport to receive desperately needed food and medical supplies. MacKenzie's outstanding and unorthodox leadership catapulted him to the status of an international celebrity, as he used the media - 'the only weapon I had' - to maximum advantage. Against the daily drama of shelling, sabotage, murder and shameless propaganda, motivated by ethnic hatreds, MacKenzie's adventures in Sarajevo read like a war novel - except that it is all tragically true. With the verve of a natural storyteller, (he) also recounts the often bizarre highlights of eight previous peacekeeping tours in the Middle East, Cyprus and Vietnam. From bluffing his way through the Turkish-Cypriot lines to boisterous forays into Saigon's netherworld; from basketball in the Gaza Strip to dodging sniper fire in Sarajevo; from daring diplomatic improvisations to bluntly outspoken criticisms of the UN bureaucracy: here is a veteran peackeeper's frank, funny and unforgettable story."

It was the diamond jubilee of the Queen Empress, and a day he would always remember with pride, as his company represented the British Army in India. But away on the North West Frontier trouble did not pause for the celebrations of the Raj. The Rajah of Drosh had rebelled, battalion losses were heavy, and Ogilvie was going to have to return to India with a larger than usual draft of raw recruits from the regimental depot at Invermore. Among these was a gentleman ranker, a fugitive from the Guards, who was to find his craving for active service brutally and plentifully fulfilled up the Chitral River and in the sniper fire of the passes between Peshawar and Drosh. Back in cantonments Ogilvie discovers his commanding officer has more on his mind than battalion losses, grievous though they have been. His second in command, the irascible, intemperate Major Lord Brora has gone absent without leave and has been reported consorting with the rebel Rajah - ."

Toronto Collins 1984 0002172798 / 9780002172790 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
318 pp, 9 3/4" H. B&w photographs, map. "In 1944, when this book begins, Richard Malone had been transferred from the Italian front back to England to take part in the Normandy landings. Trained before the war both as a soldier and a journalist, Malone had been seconded in 1940 from his regiment Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry as Staff Secretary to Col. J.L. Ralston, Canada's Minister of Defence. (Now) poised for D-Day, he held staff appointments at both Canadian Army and British 21st Army Group Headquarters and he was given charge of all Canadian Army Press and Psychological Warfare service in the field. The Canadians accounted for nearly a third of the forces landed on D-Day and Malone's description of the invasion, the battles of Normandy, the liberation of Paris and Brussels make fascinating reading. Also from his unique perspective Malone has much of interest to say about the great controversial issues of the times: Montgomery's leadership, Patton's gap, the rivalry between the British and American high commands, the Battle of the Bulge, Arnheim and the reason for its failure and others. In 1944 when the battle for Europe was clearly won, Malone was chosen to go out to the Pacific and establish relations with General MacArthur. He witnessed the Japanese surrender on the USS Missouri and was the first Canadian in Japan. He was in charge of the liberation of Canadian prisoners in Japan, China and Manchuria. His talks with Churchill, Alanbrooke, Montgomery, MacArthur, Beaverbrook, Ralston and other after the war add to our understanding of the part that Canada played in the Second World War."
