War Maps: Great Land, Sea and Air Battles of World War II by Simon Goodenough
London: MacDonald & Co. (Publishers) Ltd., 1982
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; From the introduction: This atlas of the main military and naval events of the Second World War has been divided into sections representing the general theatres of the war. Each theatre is followed to its conclusion through the text, which explains and amplifies briefly the details given in the maps. The various theatres did not, of course, exist in isolation, though to the majority of combatants at ground and sea levels it must have appeared that they did. Events in one theatre of war naturally affected events and decisions in other theatres. These events must be assessed in parallel if the many pressures that influenced their course and outcome are to be appreciated fully.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal: Exploring the Ghost Fleet of the South Pacific by Robert D. Ballard
London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1993
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Blue boards with Gilt titling to Spine & Upper Board
Illustrated by: Michael McCoy & Ken Marshchall
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: IRON BOTTOM SOUND IT GETS ITS NAME FROM ALL the ships that sank there. From August to November of 1942 the tropical waters off the small island of Guadalcanal were the scene of some of the fiercest sea battles of World War II. Fifty years later, Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic and the Bismarck, took his exploration team to Guadalcanal. Their goal was not one ship but an entire naval battlefield. On board were some of the men who had served on those ships that now lay beneath Iron Bottom Sound. The memories of these survivors help tell a powerful, poignant story of men and ships and war.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal re-creates the whole story of the campaign that changed the course of the Pacific war. For all the fame of its air and land battles, Guadalcanal is also a compelling story of sailors and warships. In fact, more Americans died in Guadalcanal waters than on land. The terror and confusion of night naval action is conveyed here in gripping chapters that describe first the bitter American defeat in the Battle of Savo Island and then the struggle to eventual victory in the climactic Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. We then descend in Ballards submarine to view scenes of American, Australian, and Japanese ships lying together on the ocean floor, their guns still eerily pointing at each other.

With over 300 illustrations, this book has all the pictorial richness that helped make bestsellers of Robert Ballards two previous books, The Discovery of the Titanic and The Discovery of the Bismarck. Haunting pictures of the wrecks are paired with photographs of the ships in their prime; a spectacular full-page foldout reveals the USS Quincy and the Canberra, painted in accurate detail by maritime artist Ken Marschall. Full-colour maps and diagrams plus a host of paintings and present-day photographs help to both re-create this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Pacific war and convey the excitement of modern underwater exploration.

The Emperor’s Codes: Bletchley Park and the Breaking of Japan’s Secret Ciphers by Michael Smith
Bantam Press, 2000
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Purple boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: The extraordinary wartime exploits of the British codebreakers based at Bletchley Park continue to fascinate and amaze. In his bestselling Station X Michael Smith brought us the astonishing true story of the breaking of the Enigma Cipher. In The Emperors Codes he continues the story as he examines how Japans codes were broken, and the consequences for the Second World War.

The Emperors Codes moves across the world from Bletchley Park to Pearl Harbor; from Singapore to Colombo; and from Mombasa to Melbourne, describing not just how the Japanese codes and ciphers were broken but how the lives of the codebreakers, both professional and personal, were affected. It tells the stories of John Tiltman, the eccentric British soldier turned codebreaker who made many of the early breaks into Japanese diplomatic and military codes; Eric Nave, the Australian sailor recruited to work for the British who pioneered breakthroughs in Japanese naval codes; and of Oshima Hiroshi, the hard-drinking Japanese ambassador to Berlin, whose candid reports to Tokyo of his conversations with Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis were a major source of intelligence in the war against Germany. Many of these revelations have been made possible only through using recently declassified British files, through privileged access to Australian secret official histories, and interviews with an unprecedented number of British, American and Australian codebreakers.

Where previous books on the subject have emphasized the role played by the Americans, The Emperors Codes is the first full account of the critical role played by British and Australian codebreakers. Using the memories of those at the forefront of this battle, Michael Smith reveals a gripping and previously untold story from the Second World War.

Rising Tide: The Untold Story of the Russian Submarines That Fought the Cold War by Gary E. Weir & Walter J. Boyne

Rising Tide: The Untold Story of the Russian Submarines That Fought the Cold War by Gary E. Weir & Walter J. Boyne lands on the shelves of my shop.

New York: Basic Books, 2003, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: Of all the Secrets the Soviet Union kept, none were more closely guarded than those involving their submarines. Throughout the Cold War, Soviet submariners patrolled the worlds oceans, playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with their American counterparts in a silent struggle hundreds of feet below the surface. For the first time, Rising Tide tells the Soviet side of these secretive operations. Drawing on newly available archives, as well as interviews with a dozen former Soviet commanders access never before granted to Western researchers this gripping narrative shows that confrontations between nuclear-armed subs were far more dangerous than we ever thought.

With sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos, Rising Tide recounts successful Soviet operations, including top-secret exercises off the American coast, and espionage coups, such as the spy-ship that monitored American missile tests off the Florida coast and collected the debris in full view of the US Navy. All too common were the near-misses, heroic rescues, and deadly catastrophes that plagued Soviet submarines over the years, including the horrific nuclear accident on board the ill-fated K-19, later nicknamed the Hiroshima; the internal fire that sank the K-8 in 1970 with twenty-two sailors on board, and the dramatic escape of crewmembers from the Komsomolets in 1989, as narrated by a survivor.

Russian submariners fought two battles in the Cold War: one against their American opponents, and another against the cruel Soviet leadership that knowingly put their lives at risk and caused so many needless deaths. Rising Tide also provides dramatic first-hand evidence that the final decision to launch a nuclear weapon resided solely in the hands of Soviet sub commanders. From the Cuban Missile Crisis to the tragic sinking of the Kursk in 2000, Rising Tide offers an extraordinary insiders history of the Soviet submarine service, and sheds new light on the darkest secrets of the Cold War.

Batten’s South Somerset Villages by John Batten

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Genealogical Tables; Chapter Headpieces;

From the cover: Battens South Somerset Villages was first published in 1894 as Historical and Topographical Collections relating to the Early History of Parts of South Somerset

This fascinating facsimile edition (including rare early photographs) will make compelling reading for all those who live in, or appreciate from a distance, this beautiful part of Wessex. It examines in detail the families, lands, houses and churches around which have been constructed a thousand years of history, and which have left their legacy in present-day South Somerset.

Unheralded Victory: Who Won the Vietnam War? by Mark W. Woodruff

Unheralded Victory: Who Won the Vietnam War? by Mark W. Woodruff lands on the shelves of my shop.

London: HarperCollinsPublishers, 2000, Hardback in dust wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: Unheralded Victory is a revisionist history of the Vietnam war based on personal experience and exhaustive study of what actually happened, as opposed to what was reported. Contrary to what might be expected, it charts the defeat of the Viet Cong. It investigates why the popular image of the war then, as now, is that propagated by Hanois propaganda machine, and why US propaganda was so clumsy. Many myths are debunked: drug use among US forces, fragging; American morale: the authors account squares with the recollections of actual veterans. He also exposes a number of eyewitnesses, some active in the veterans organizations who were never in Vietnam and whose false testimony has contributed to enduring myth of the crazed Vietnam veteran as portrayed in cinema and TV. An original military history, Unheralded Victory echoes some themes revisited in NATOs war on Serbia: how what gets reported can be more important than the events on the ground especially if the frontline is a very dangerous place for film crew.
