CHINDIT., James, Richard Rhodes.  Foreword by Bernard Fergusson.
381 James, Richard Rhodes. Foreword by Bernard Fergusson. CHINDIT.
John Murray, London, 1980, first edition. 
214 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0719537460 B&w photographs, maps. "In 1943 Major-General Orde Wingate startled the military world by his daring raid in command of 77 Brigade into the heart of Japanese-occupied Burma. In t he following year Wingate master-minded an even more ambitious operation, which involved the flying in of about 10,000 men and 1,000 animals behind enemy lines to harass the Japanese and disrupt their communications, with the aid of close t a c t i c a l s upport by USAAF No. 1 Air Commando under Colonel Philip Cochran. 'Chindit' was the name given to these operations and to the men who took part in them, derived from the Burmese word for the mythical beast that guards their pagodas fr om e vi l. Th i s book is a personal account of the 1944 operation by an officer who served on the staff of 111 Brigade. It tells the story of the preparations in central India for this arduous form of warfare, which Wingate called Long Range Pen etr ati on, th e fl ig ht deep into enemy territory and the subsequent campaign of guerrilla operations after the sudden death of Wingate...."

THE MILITARY CORRESPONDENCE OF FIELD MARSHAL SIR HENRY WILSON 1918-1922.  PUBLICATIONS OF THE ARMY RECORDS SOCIETY VOL. I., Jeffery, Keith, editor.  Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson.
382 Jeffery, Keith, editor. Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson. THE MILITARY CORRESPONDENCE OF FIELD MARSHAL SIR HENRY WILSON 1918-1922. PUBLICATIONS OF THE ARMY RECORDS SOCIETY VOL. I.
Bodley Head / Army Records Society, London, 1985, first edition. 
438 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 037030683X Two b&w maps. "Among the papers of Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson in the Imperial War Museum are some 300 letters dating from his time as professional head of the British Army. W ilson was Chief of the Imperial General Staff, February 1918 to February 1922, and the correspondence selected for this Army Records Society volume reflects all the principal military concerns of the period. During the last nine months of th e F i r s t World War the great German spring offensive, the Allied successes in the late summer and autumn, and final victory in November dominate the letters. Post-war problems of demobilisation and army re-building were followed by the difficu lt i es o f me et ing wide-range military commitments throughout the world. At home domestic revolution necessitated that the army prepare for operations in aid of the civil power. Abroad military action had to be co-ordinated with the French in ord er to en fo rce th e peace treaty with Germany and support Allied policy in Eastern Europe. Further demands were made on the army by calls to repress nationalist unrest in Ireland, Egypt, Indian and Mesopotamia (Iraq), together with communal vio len ce i n Pa les tine . A ll these topics are covered in the correspondence, which in particular demonstrates Wilson's growing disillusionment with the government's Irish policy. Wilson was himself an Irishman with strong Unionist sympathies whic h ma teria lly c ontr ibute d to his assassination by Irish nationalists just a few months after retiring from the War Office."

BESIEGED:  THE WORLD WAR II ORDEAL OF MALTA, 1940-1942., Jellison, Charles A.
383 Jellison, Charles A. BESIEGED: THE WORLD WAR II ORDEAL OF MALTA, 1940-1942.
University of New Hampshire / University Press of New England, (Hanover, NH), 1984, first edition. 
288 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, b&w photos, map. ISBN 0874513138 "During the early years of the Second World War, the tiny island of Malta withstood months of incessant heavy bombing and blockade by the Axis powers. Because of its strategic location and excellent harbor facilities, retention of Malta was of utmost importance for the British. Conversely, its surrender or neutralization as an offensive base was given the highest priority by the enemy. For more than two years this lonely outpost (the sole British base between Gibraltar and Alexandria) was subjected to the heaviest sustained bombing ever unleashed upon so small an area, while its people were increasingly deprived of food, medicine, and virtually all other necessities of life by the ever-tightening stranglehold of the Axis blockade. This fine narrative conveys in a lively, moving fashion the effects of that extraordinary period on the populace of Malta. This is not a military history, but rather extremely readable social history set against the backdrop of military events. It deals principally with the effect of the blockade upon island life, and is the first book to present the Maltese war experience from a Maltese point of view. It recounts the story of how a simple, deeply religious people who had never experienced modern warfare reacted to the brutal, grueling ordeal of a war that was none of their making. Growing out of the author's interest in and extended visits to Malta, the book's special features include extensive use of material from diaries and personal recollections extracted from dozens of interviews with actual participants in the drama. " Small faint scuff to fore-edge of textblock, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, a few tiny soiling marks on rear board. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing, tiny scuff on front panel. VG+/V G

THE COUNTESS., Johns, Rebecca.
384 Johns, Rebecca. THE COUNTESS.
New York Crown 2010 0307588459 / 9780307588456 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
285 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "In this riveting dramatization of Erzebet Bathory's life, the countess tells her story in her own words, written to her only son - a final reckoning from his mother in an attempt to reveal the truth behind her downfall. Countess Bathory describes her upbringing in one of the most powerful noble houses in Hungary, recounting in loving detail her devotion to her parents and siblings as well as the heartbreak of losing her father at a young age. She soon discovers the price of being a woman in sixteenth-century Hungary as her mother arranges her marriage to Ferenc Nadasdy, a union made with the cold calculation of a financial transaction. Young Erzebet knows she has no choice but to accept this marriage even as she laments its loveless nature and ultimately turns to the illicit affections of another man. Seemingly resigned to a marriage of convenience and a life of surreptitious pleasure, the countess surprises even herself as she ignites a marital spark with Ferenc through the most unromantic of acts: the violent punishment of an insolent female servant. The event shows Ferenc that his wife is no trophy but a strong, determined woman more than capable of managing their vast estates during Ferenc's extensive military campaigns against the Turks. Her naked assertion of power accomplishes what her famed beauty could not: capturing the love of her husband. The countess embraces this new role of loving wife and mother, doing everything she can to expand her husband's power and secure her family's future. But a darker side surfaces as Countess Bathory's demand for virtue, obedience, and, above all, respect from her servants take a sinister turn. What emerges is not only a disturbing, unflinching portrait of the deeds that gave Bathory the moniker 'Blood Countess', but an intimate look at the woman who became a monster." Remainder dot on bottom of textblock near spine, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny bump on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has some areas of light edge wrinkling, light rubbing.

TRENTON:  50 YEARS OF AIR FORCE., Johnson, E.A. "Rick", Major, editor.   Foreword by Colonel R.D. Russell.
385 Johnson, E.A. "Rick", Major, editor. Foreword by Colonel R.D. Russell. TRENTON: 50 YEARS OF AIR FORCE.
CFB Trenton 50th Anniversary Committee, Trenton, Ontario, 1981. 
160 pp, oblong 8vo (8 5/8" H x 10 1/2" D), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs. "Ever since it was officially opened in 1931 the base of Trenton, Ontario has been the most important military airfield in Canada. It began as a flying training base and in the early war years was responsible for training flight instructors who in turn helped to train the thousands of pilots in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. After the war the base remained the home of Central Flying School and pilot training continued to be the primary activity. Post war expansion of commercial air traffic to and from Toronto gradually began to interfere with the freedom of movement of the trainers and in 1961CFS was moved to the open skies of the prairies and Trenton became the home of Air Transport Command. Throughout its 50 year history many thousands of airmen and airwomen have lived and worked here. Countless thousands more have passed through, either on course or as air transport passengers. It is hoped that this book will be of interest to everyone who has been here, by providing information about what happened here before or since their particular time at Trenton and by offering a nostalgic look at some of the people, planes and places of their era." Minor edge wear, one tiny edge dint. Dust jacket has one 1" closed tear archivally taped, a knife cut across rear panel, light browning, small dint on rear flap -fold, a few tiny closed tears, minor edge wrinkling. Very Good+/Good+

390 Johnston, S. Paul. FLYING SQUADRONS: A GRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES.
New York Duell, Sloan and Pearce 1942 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Fair 
234 pp, 9 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "(C)ombines rare and startling pictures with a thoroughly authoritative text to tell the story (of the 'Flying Squadrons'). (Johnston) points out how, from the very earliest flights of man, people foresaw the military possibilities of aviation: Franklin, in his letters after he watched the Montgolfier ascensions; Napoleon, in his Egyptian campaign; the Danes, during the Swedish conflict of 1830. Briefly but penetratingly he tells the story of the early twentieth-century experiments, and of what happened to aviation in the first World War. He shows what position of our air power was in 1919, and how that position changed in the Twenties and Thirties: experimentation, discouragement, retrogression, new ideas, organization, the attitude of the army leaders, of government leaders, of industry. Finally, he presents the whole picture of our Army Air Force as it was constituted on December 7th, 1941. He describes all types of airplanes that have been developed - the interceptor and convoying pursuit plane, the light, medium, and heavy bomber, the transports, the reconnaissance, liaison, trainer planes. He then tells of the make-up of Army Air Force personnel and of the training courses. He gives data on the size of our Air Force, on the programs mapped out, on lessons learned from the Nazis and from the British, and how these lessons are being applied. Finally, he presents the all-over strategy of our military aviation, explaining where it is weak, what it must plan for, how it can be the keystone of victory."

391 Johnston, S.H.F. BRITISH SOLDIERS. BRITAIN IN PICTURES - THE BRITISH PEOPLE IN PICTURES SERIES.
William Collins of London, MCMXXXXIV (1944). 
48 pp, 8 15/16" H, hard cover in dust jacket. 8 colour plates, 25 b&w illustrations. "The British Army, as we know it today, goes back to Cromwell's New Model Army which was formed in 1645 to fight against the Royalists. The soldiers of this army were the original British Redcoats. But British soldiers had been fighting both at home and abroad, long before the 17th century: at Hastings, at Crecy, at Agincourt and before that against the Romans and the Danes. It is the great individ u a l f i g ures which give their character to each succeeding military period: Sidney, Cromwell, Rupert, Marlborough, Wolfe, Moore, Wellington, Roberts: but their greatness is only properly measured against the greatness of their armies - armies c om po se d o f or dinary men who have fought in almost every country in the world, against all manner of odds. As Major Johnston says, 'The British Soldier may lose battles, but the only important war he has ever lost is the war of the American Re vol uti on' - an d the n the victors were themselves of British stock." Area of waviness in middle of pages 41 to end of book - no indication of water damage, minor browning on spine and edges of text block, minor edge wear.
