Jonathan Cape, 2004
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs; Over the past few decades, investigative journalism has come to mean the kind of brave reporting that exposes injustice, wrongdoing and, above all, the abuse of power. At a time when journalism is under attack perhaps as never before, this celebration of the very best of investigative journalism, and some of the greatest practitioners of the craft, could not be more timely.

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.
