WORLD WAR II IN PHOTOGRAPHS., Boyle, David.
21 Boyle, David. WORLD WAR II IN PHOTOGRAPHS.
Rebo, Lisse, Netherlands, 1998. 
600 pp, 4to (11 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1840530898 "World War II was the most intensively photographed conflict in history. Military and press photographers, propagandists, camera-wielding soldiers and civilians - all took the opportunity to record the tumultuous events of 1939-45. The scenes they captured of mass suffering and individual heroism, of atrocious cruelty and humanitarianism against the odds, of hate and comradeship, misery and hope, remain undiminished in t heir intensity and constitute a vital record of an extraordinary period. (This book) features 900 clearly captioned images selected from a wide variety of sources. Every major theatre of conflict is covered, from the icy seas of the Arctic C i r c l e to the jungles of the South Pacific, from the deserts of North Africa to the steppes of Russia. Throughout, proper historical grounding is given by an informative, indexed commentary summarizing the many complex events of the period. Wi th i ts w ea l th of memorable images, this book provides an unrivalled overview of a time when three-quarters of the globe went to war." Slight wrinkling at top/bottom of spine; tiny bump at top edge, near spine, of a few pages. Dust jacket has li ght ed ge wri nk ling/creasing. Very Good+/Very Good

THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (241 BC - AD 193)., Braud, David C., ed.  (Joyce Reynolds, W.S. Hanson, David C. Braud.)
23 Braud, David C., ed. (Joyce Reynolds, W.S. Hanson, David C. Braud.) THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (241 BC - AD 193).
University of Exeter Press, Exeter, 1993, reprint. 
109 pp, 8 1/4" H, soft cover. Map, 2 plans. ISBN 0859892042 "The overseas empire which Rome acquired from the third century BC onwards was perhaps the single most important issue in Roman history thereafter, as the Roman city-state became ever mo re like a world-state. The empire had to be administered. This volume shows how, to a large extent, it came to run itself. In his introduction, David Braund examines the essential framework of the empire as it developed throughout the p e r i o d . H e draws attention to the impact of empire upon Rome itself - an impact that was not only social and economic but also political and ideological. Joyce Reynolds utilises neglected sources - particularly inscriptions - to present an a cc ou nt o f th e r ol e of cities in the life of the empire. W.S. Hanson formulates recent advances in archaeology in his discussion of Roman involvement in the creation of towns in non-urban areas of the western empire, most notably Britain. In the fi nal c hap te r , D avi d Braund presents the results of the latest research on the client kings and queens who bore much of the brunt of empire and who became, from Augustus onwards, ever more a part of the empire, obtaining citizenship and eve n se ats in the Rom an Sen ate by the beginning of the second century AD. A substantial bibliography is appended." Interior - previous owner's small stamp on inside of front cover, very small soft bump to top corner of textblock, otherwi se c lean and t ight wi th n o ot her owne rshi p marks. Exterior - tiny soft crease at corners, minor rubbing, minor wear at top/bottom of spine. Very Good

ISBN 0861246209 "Created, ordered and led by Hitler, the state apparatus of Nazi Germany rigorously controlled all aspects of life in the Third Reich from cradle to grave. To maintain his iron grip on the German people through the ministries of his dictatorial government, Hitler surrounded himself with a small clique of fanatical, devoted acolytes. Men such as Heinrich Himmler, the much-feared chief of the Waffen-SS and organiser of t h e Holocaust, and Hermann Goering, the bombastic head of the Luftwaffe, wielded enormous power and held the fate of millions in their corrupt hands. (This book) tells the inside story of the Third Reich, looking at the personalities, roles and ri va lr ies of Hitler's closest associates: Joseph Goebbels, the astute propaganda minister; Joachim von Ribbentrop, the Reich's chief diplomat; Rudolph Hess, Hitler's disgraced deputy; Albert Speer, the manager of the Reich's economy; Baldur von S chi rac h, the fanatic who moulded the thoughts of the youth of Germany; Alfred Rosenberg, the man who created the philosophical framework for the ideology of Nazisim; Martin Bormann, Hitler's enigmatic advisor; and Evan Braun, Hitler's mistress. W ritt en b y ( two) noted Dutch historians, (it) reveals the truth behind the fascade of the Third Reich and is an important contribution to the literature of the Nazi era. Illustrated with 300 photographs, many in colour, this book is a must for an y stu dent of t he rise and fall of the Third Reich and its leaders."

37 Chapman, Eddie. Foreword by Frank Owen. THE REAL EDDIE CHAPMAN STORY.
London Tandem Mass Market Paperback Good 
253 pp, 7 1/8" H. c1966. In 1940, safecracker Eddie Chapman offered his services to the German High Command as a spy. His first mission was to blow up the de Havilland works in Hatfield. "What is now revealed for the first time is that Chapman had immediately upon landing made contact with senior officials of the Air Ministry who listened with stunned silence to his story. Shortly after, a German reconnaissance plane which was allowed over to photograph the results of his mssion, reported that the buildings were in ruins and smoke was still rising. At Hatfield, the camouflage experts quietly congratulated themselves on having made it look as though an explosives expert had been at work! Chapman was working for his own country at the risk of his life. Soon after he was shipped back to Germany through Lisbon, where Hitler, grateful for the blow struck against England, awarded him the Iron Cross. For two years, Chapman, behaving like a hero of the Third Reich, spied on the Germans and constantly fed information back to British Intelligence, before being parachuted in for a second time to report on the range of the V-bombs. His true story makes incredible reading." Rear cover advertises the movie "Triple Cross", starring Christopher Plummer as Eddie Chapman and Yul Brynner as Colonel von Grunen.
