Letters from the Army in the Crimea, Anthony Coningham Sterling
11 Anthony Coningham Sterling Letters from the Army in the Crimea
The Naval & Military Press Softcover Very Good None issued 19cm 
This is a reproduction of the original & is a compassionate and sardonic view of the heroically mismanaged Crimean War culled from his letters home. The Crimean War acquired its grim notoriety not least because of the frankness of the letters and despatches from the field that shocked the mid-Victorian newspaper reading public. `The Times' correspondent in the Crimea, William Howard Russell, became a household name with his graphic descriptions of the fighting and the suffering of the inadequately clad and led troops. Here, in the same tradition, are the Crimean letters of Captain [later Lieut. Col.] Sir Anthony Coningham Sterling, who came out of retirement to serve as Brigade Major in Sir Colin Campbell's Highland Brigade. The author takes us through the bloody battles of the Alkma and Inkerman and the confusion of Balaclava and into the siege of Sepastopol. Normally stoical and even humorous, the miseries of the campaign sometimes bring him close to despair, especially in the freezing trenches before Sepstopol and after such disasters as the abortive assault on the Great Redan. 496 crisp pp & well over the 500g.

In July 1944, the 2/8th sailed to Lae, in New Guinea from where they launched a clandestine reconnaissance operation on the island of New Britain. Later, attached to the II Corps, it participated in the Bougainville campaign, during which it was in action continuously for a period of nine months right up until the Japanese surrendered in August 1945. Following the end of hostilities, the 2/8th returned to Australia, and was disbanded at Liverpool, New South Wales in early January 1946. Extremely hard to find book in as new condition.

18 Bader, Douglas Fight for the Sky The Story of the Spitfire and the Hurricane
UK Sidgwick & Jackson 1973 Softcover Good None issued 24 Cm 
Bader tells the inspiring story of the Battle of Britain from the viewpoint of 'The Few'. Using superb illustrations he traces the development of the Spitfire and Hurricane and describes the nail-biting actions of those who flew them against far superior numbers of enemy aircraft. As an added bonus, other well-known fighter aces including Johnnie Johnson, 'Laddie' Lucas and Max Aikten contribute to Douglas's book, no doubt out of affection and respect. This is a really important contribution to RAF history by one of the greatest -and certainly the most famous - pilot of the Second World War. 190pp, just too far over the 500g re post so why not get another book & use up that postage. Rear cover & last 3 pp have a stain (my guess is a spilt cup of tea), corners thumbed. Despite its faults it's a classic addition to any military shelf.

19 Ball, Simon The Bitter Sea: The Struggle for Mastery in the Mediterranean 1935-1949
Harper Press 2009 Paperback Very Good - Good None issued 23.5cm 
A lucid and masterly biography of the Mediterranean during a time of war, from Mussoliniís audacious bid for conquest to the creation of Israel and the start of the Cold War. The Bitter Sea is a fascinating interpretation of world affairs and a significant contribution to twentieth century history. With incisive strategic and political analysis, Simon Ball demonstrates in this dramatic narrative how the Mediterranean Sea lay at the heart of recent world history. 380pp, 2 photo sections, 750g packed for post. review >>>> An excellent history of the Mediterranean naval war which restores balance by giving appropriate weight to the courage and effectiveness of Italian naval forces. The political back biting and manipulation amongst the higher levels of the British naval forces was new to me and fascinating as was the extent of strong Nazi sympathy amongst the French naval establishment.

Malta was of great strategic importance to the Allies, and was pivotal to their success in North Africa as it provided the perfect launching pad for aircraft to attack Axis supply ships in the Mediterranean. the island in turn suffered intensive bombing by the German and Italian air forces as a direct result.
