THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR AND WESTERN SECURITY 1984-87: STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS AND POLICY OPTIONS., Cordesman, Anthony H.
162 Cordesman, Anthony H. THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR AND WESTERN SECURITY 1984-87: STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS AND POLICY OPTIONS.
Jane's, (London, 1987). 
185 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "...provides: sophisticated analysis of military strengths and weaknesses of both sides; the latest information on the equipment each side possesses and what use they make of it; detailed examination of major battles and offensives; a thorough, professional study of the economic realities facing both countries given their reduced oil-exporting abilities; lucid insights into both the social and political factors which affect, and may eventually determine, what happens to Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party's rule and Ayatollah Khomeini's revolutionary government. The Iran-Iraq War can be viewed at many different levels; as a human tragedy, as a threat to the security of southwest Asia, as a threat to the world's main supply of imported oil, and as the source of new lessons regarding the nature of modern war. All of these issues are addressed in a crisp, informed and professional manner in this timely and important book, by a man who understands military exigencies, strategic realities, the politcs of oil and the growing threat this continuing war presents to the West..."

320 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w photographs, reproductions. "The first organized unit to emerge (concentrating on the Army's supply and transport functions) was the Royal Waggoners, much later to become the Royal Army Service Corps. Since those days, although suffering from a variety of changes in uniform and title, the RASC have been with us in one way or another. Theirs is a remarkable history, and Graeme Crew has managed to convey in one short volume the enormous contribution the Corps has made to the military might and fighting strength of this country. Wherever the British Army were, the Corps made sure that its supplies, ammunition, petrol and every item of military equipment needed by troops in the combat line arrived in time, at the right place and in the right quantity. Without the RASC no army could survive. Their regimental march is 'Wait for the Waggon' - how glad so many of us have been in the past to know that it would always arrive...."

170 D'Urban, Benjamin, Major-General Sir. Edited, with introduction, by I.J. Rousseau. THE PENINSULAR JOURNAL, 1808-1817.
London Greenhill 1988 0947898875 / 9780947898878 Reprint Very Good Very Good 
355 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). Maps. "Whether among the first three to charge the French guns at Medellin, leading his troopers into the enemy ranks at Salamanca, or evolving order out of the chaos that bedevilled the Portuguese Army in 1809, Sir Benjamin D'Urban was not only a brave and resolute soldier but also a painstaking and highly efficient Chief of Staff to Marshal Beresford. Finding, on arrival at Corunna in October 1808, that he had been appointed to that part of the Army left behind in Portugal, D'Urban set out to meet Sir John Moore in the hope of receiving fresh orders. This was the beginning of six years of unbroken service which included taking part in ten battles and sieges. After a short period as Staff Officer to Sir Robert Wilson, he was appointed Colonel and QMG to the Portuguese Army by Marshal Beresford in April 1809. The 'Journals' give a day to day summary of the Peninsular Campaign, which was found invaluable by Sir Charles Oman, and provides a counter to what D'Urban considered unfair criticism of Beresford by Sir Charles Napier. Long out of print, this unique record of events fills a need for everyone interested in the campaigns of 1809-1815, particularly in regard to the operations of the Right Wing of the Allied Army and of the part played by the Portuguese Army, which has not always received the credit due for some of its major exploits."

198 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps/battle plans. "The heroism of William Darby and his Rangers in World War II has become legend. Experts at amphibious landings, night attacks, and close combat, they led the assaulting troops in the initial North Africa landings, fought in Tunisia, landed through concentrated hell at Gela, and were in on the final kill at Messina. At Sorrento they stood off forces that outnumbered them by at least eight to one, and they spearheaded the desperate struggle at Anzio. This is Darby's own story of those climactic days, as dictated, just a few months before his death, to his friend General William H. Baumer. Baumer has added background information about the war and on Darby's life, plus a summary of the exploits of other Ranger units. Darby was a combat leader in the highest tradition of the United States Army - a forceful, charismatic man who inspired loyalty and in turn gave loyalty to his troops. He refused battlefield promotions three times in order to stay with his Rangers. During his colorful and brilliant career, he received ten high military decorations, and was posthumously promoted to brigadier general."

Vancouver Douglas & McIntyre 1997 1550545884 / 9781550545883 Very Good Very Good+ 
270 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps. "Through James Davis's eyes, we see the real face of Canada's army: efficient, technologically advanced - sometimes brutal. The uncompromising opinions Davis has about the strengths and weaknesses of our present-day military are backed up by his own first-hand experience at 'the sharp end' as a frontline soldier. The bungling and politically motivated actions of the Forces' senior ranks and their government masters, he states, chronically compromise the effectiveness of our fighting forces. Davis was at the defence of Sarajevo as centuries-old ethnic emnity between Serbs and Croats exploded into house-by-house guerilla warfare. He was in Rwanda as Hutus and Tutsis struggled for dominance. A former member of Canada's famed Airborne Regiment, Davis relives its emotional, controversial last days following revelations of misconduct by a handful of members in Somalia. The story of his active duty is chilling but leavened with poignancy - hardened soldiers moved by the slaughter of children and innocents in the former Yugoslavia; an inspiring visit to a gorilla sanctuary in Rwanda, mere miles from horrific bloodletting. Davis also portrays the daily challenges of making-do in Canada's diminished military forces and tells shocking anecdotes such as one about the 'Remembrance Day Massacre', when a poorly planned field exercise went terribly wrong." Tiny light soiling speck on top of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, rubbing on fore-edge of rear board. Dust jacket has minor wear and very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

566 pp, 9 1/2" H. Undated reprint of the 1945 edition, c1999. A volume in the "Leaders of Our Time" series. "On June 6, 1944, a decisive day in the history of the Western World, the radio had been blaring reports of the progress of American troops on the Normandy beachhead since long before dawn. The man whose portrait is examined in this book had reached the supreme moment of his career. This work is a first hand account of Dwight D. Eisenhower from his early years in Texas through his military service in World War II. It documents his training at West Point, his tour of duty in WWI and then his meteoric rise as war leader and stateman in World War II. Extensive interviews that the author conducted with Eisenhower in London in the days leading up to the Normandy invasion shed new light on the strategic thinking that lay behind the momentous plans that were then being formulated. They also provide an intimate look at Eisenhower the man and the deeply held sense of values that would see him through the war and then later inform his tenure as president of the United States."

249 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w illustrations. "On May 15, 1864, at a little crossroads hamlet in Virginia, the fate of the Shenandoah Valley may have been decided and, with it, the ability of the Confederacy to survive in Virginia for another season. (This) is the story of one of those seemingly incredible hair's-breadth miracles that now and then dot the Civil War landscape. A scratch force of hastily assembled Confederates, outnumbered up to the last minute, meets and decisively overcomes a superior Yankee army. A former vice president and one-time candidate for the presidency commands the Rebel forces. The Corps of Cadets of Virginia Military Institute - some of them boys no older than fourteen - march to battle with the veterans, commencing a tradition and a legend that persist to this day. All these and more make up the dramatic story of New Market, and are told here in the most thoroughly researched and clearly presented book ever written on this legendary battle. Courage and heroism, youth and manhood, North and South - all meet compellingly in these pages, just as they met in the pelting rain on the battlefield that may have saved Virginia."
