162 Selby, John. Foreword by Major-General F.C. Graham. THE THIN RED LINE OF BALACLAVA.
London Hamish Hamilton 1970 241019001 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Good- 
257 pp, 9 1/4" H. Map endpapers, b&w and colour illustrations - photographs, reproductions, maps/battle plans. "(T)he Charge (of the Light Brigade) was only a vivid firework display on the fringe of the main action. It was the Highland Brigade and in particular the 93rd Highlanders, the 'Thin Red Line' of the title, under the inspiring leadership of Sir Colin Campell who really saved the day. This new narrative of the battle, based exclusively on eye-witness reports from British, French and Russian sources, presents the conflict as a coherent whole. Here are Raglan, Cardigan, Lucan, Campbell and Scarlett; Bosquet and Canrobert; the staff officers, the surgeons, the lady spectators, the war corres-pondents, the ordinary soldiers on both sides. The political manoeuvring, the armies arriving in the Crimea, the Allied success at Alma, the ravages of cholera, Inkerman 'the soldier's battle', Tchernaya, the storming of the Redan, the siege of Sebastopol, the influence of Florence Nightingale and Maitre-chef Soyer - this is the Crimean War, a struggle which need not have taken place, which produced no decisive solution, and which demonstrated with appalling clarity the inefficiencies of the British High Command." Light edge wear - mainly on bottom edge of boards, a few tiny shallow bumps to bottom edge of boards, small bump at bottom corner of rear boards - migrates into corner of approx. last 12 page leaves, minor browning to top edge of boards, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

95 pp, 9 3/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 1841763470 Illustrated in b&w and colour with photographs, reproductions, maps/battle plans. "More than 80 years on, the Great War - and particularly the great battles such as the Somme and Verdun - continues to fascinate us and to cast long shadows over the world in which we live. For Britain, the effort and sacrifice involved in creating and sustaining its first-ever and biggest-ever mass citizen army, and in helping to defeat the main enemy in the decis ive theatre of operations, left deep emotional and psychological scars that have influenced much of the nation's subsequent history and that are still felt today. In this volume, Peter Simkins re-examines the struggle and sheds an interesting n e w l ight on the nature, course and effects of the fighting in France and Belgium from 1914 to 1916.

YENTL THE YESHIVA BOY., Singer, Isaac Bashevis.  Translated from the Yiddish by Marion Magid and Elizabeth Pollet.
164 Singer, Isaac Bashevis. Translated from the Yiddish by Marion Magid and Elizabeth Pollet. YENTL THE YESHIVA BOY.
New York Farrar, Straus and Giroux 1983 0374293473 / 9780374293475 First Thus Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ Antonio Fransconi, woodcuts. 
58 pp, 10" H. First published in 1962, this is the first printing of a new edition illustrated with b&w and rust coloured woodcuts by Antonio Fransconi. "Recognizing that Yentl seems to have the soul and disposition of a man, her father studies the Torah and other holy books with her. When he dies, Yentl feels she no longer has a reason to remain in her village, and so, late one night, she cuts off her hair, dresses as a young man, and sets out to find a yeshiva where she can continue her studies and live secretly as a man. On the road she meets Avigdor, who invites her to come to his yeshiva. Yentl - now calling herself Anshel - agrees, and they study together. Avigdor suspects nothing and the two become close friends. Even so, Yentl begins to realize the folly of her actions: her quest for spiritual satisfaction has hopelessly entangled her in a life that is too emotionally and physically taxing to maintain. She must choose to live with her impossible situation or reveal herself and risk losing Avigdor forever." Dust jacket is price clipped, has minor edge wrinkling.

TOIL & TROUBLE: MILITARY EXPEDITIONS TO RED RIVER., Stanley, George F.G.

303 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Canadian War Museum Publication No. 25. Map endpapers, b&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "Dealing briefly with the Swiss and Canadian mercenaries sent to Red River by Lord Selkirk in 1818, and the British garrisons supplied by the Imperial Government during the 1840s and 1850s, Dr. Stanley recounts in detail the organization and despatch of British and Canadian troops under the command of Colonel G.J. Wolseley to the newly formed province of Manitoba in 1870, the subsequent reinforcements sent to the West between 1871 and 1873 and the organization of the first militia units in Manitoba. The success of these several expeditions was owing, in large measure, not only to the officers and soldiers who took part, but also to the fledgling Department of Militia in Ottawa. These troop movements were facilitated by the construction of roads and the establishment of water communications between Fort William and Fort Garry. Drawing upon official documents and contemporary narratives, the author has written a fascinating account of the Red River Expeditions, bringing a fresh perspective to the story of Louis Riel in Manitoba, the Fenian Raids of 1871, and the military history of the Canadian federation." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, faint scratch on rear board. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, very light rubbing.

168 Steele, Ian K. WARPATHS: INVASIONS OF NORTH AMERICAN.
New York Oxford University Press 1994 0195082222 / 9780195082227 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
282 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w maps, plans, photographs, reproductions. "(P)rovides a sweeping history of the numerous European invasions of North America, painting a dramatic new portrait of the centuries of warfare that shook the continent. Steele's fascinating account destroys the old image of technologically advanced Europeans overrunning primitive savages. Instead, he reveals how Amerindians rose to the challenge of each successive invasion with martial and diplomatic skill, from the defeat of Ponce de Leon in 1513 to a negotiated peace with the British in 1765. In war after war, the Amerindians and Europeans battled in a precarious balance, adapting each other's technology and tactics and seeking each other out as allies and as supply sources of food and weapons. Steele follows the experience of the Spanish at San Agustin, the English at Jamestown and Plymouth, the French at Quebec, and the Dutch at Albany, revealing the vast range of Amerindian strategies for coping with invaders. He continues the story through the arrival of European regulars in 1755, showing how the Amerindians adapted to the resulting changes in warfare and the ultimate British victory over the French. In the end, the triumphant English were faced with a powerful Amerindian campaign against their outlying posts that forced them to accept a military stalemate on the frontier, leading to a negotiated balance of power in 1765." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear.
