Letters of Henry VIII, 1526-29

ISBN: 0117024538
The Stationary Office  2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 238 pages. From 1526 to 1529, Henry VIII's control of English affairs forged the most fundamental changes in the history of the country. As a thousand years of unquestioned certainty and dependence on the Catholic Church seemed about to end, Henry became determined not to allow English matters of state to be affected by the shifting balance of power in Europe. In this collection of private letters and state papers, we see how Henry's passion for Anne Boleyn influenced his dealings with the kings of Europe and the pope in Rome, we follow his great campaign to divorce Katherine, his wife of 20 years, and we witness the change in his relationship with Cardinal Wolsely as the chancellor fails to obtain an annulment of the marriage. The letters and papers show Henry to be a fomidable personality: intelligent, informed, witty and passionate.  As New

Soldier Sailor: An Intimate Portrait of an Irish Family
Pakenham, Eliza
ISBN: 9780297843771
Weidenfeld & Nicolson  2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 269 pages. Embedded in the upper echelons of society in England and Ireland at the turn of the 19th Century, the Pakenham family, Earls of Longford, kept extensive records of the minutiae of their day-to-day lives in Pakenham Hall, their home in Ireland. As generals and admirals they fought and died in battles far from home and as politicians they participated in the political battles of the day. The voices and personalities which emerge from this unique archive give us an intimate account of a family set against the backdrop of Napoleon's rise and fall. Women write to each other about family gossip and national affairs, about Kitty Packenham's brother scorning the young Wellington's proposal (they eventually married), and later about his infidelities. Ever constant in their letters are their hopes and fears for their husbands and brothers and sons. Around them swirl the noises of war, in the conflicts of the French Invasion of 1798, the bloody sieges and battles of the Peninsular War, and the disastrous defeat at New Orleans. From the ships, regimental headquarters and battlefield billets, men write home with details of their exploits and their hopes for peace. Following the fortunes of this Napoleonic generation, we understand what it is like to live in times of peace and war, of the pain of bereavement, the shifting sands of political allegience and the constant search for preferment to augment the family interest.  As New/As New

The Awful End of Prince William the Silent : The First Assassination of a Head of State with a Handgun
Jardine, Lisa
ISBN: 0007192576
Harper Collins  2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 175 pages. In this book, Lisa Jardine explores the historical ramifications of the first assassinations of a head of state with a hand gun. The shooting of Prince William of Orange in the hallway of his Delft residence in July 1584 by a French Catholic - the second attempt on his life - had immediate political consequences: it was a serious setback for the Protestant cause in the Netherlands, as it forces fought for independence from the Catholic rule of the Habsburg empite. But, as Jardine brilliantly illustrates, its implications for those in positions of power were even more far reaching, as the assassination brutally and irrevocably heralded the arrival of a lethal new threat to the security of nations: a weapon that could be concealed and used to deadly effect at point-blank range.  As New/Very Good

The Arab-Israeli Conflict
Woolf, Alex
ISBN: 0836856651
World Almanac Library  2005 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 64 pages. This book describes the ongoing struggle for land, power, and cultural and religious survival between the Jewish nation of Israel and the Palestinian and other Arabic-speaking people of the Middle East. Beginning with the contradictory promises that Great Britain made to the Arabs and Jews about Palestine during World War II, this area of the world has been - and continues to be - a land in dispute. Wars, protests, and multiple acts of terror have been punctuated by attempts at peace agreements, often brokered by the United States. This book tells the history of that conflict, and it explores why the people of the region continue their struggle with one another as they seek peace, cultural and religious autonomy, and prosperity.  As New

Discovery at Rosetta: The Stone That Unlocked the Mysteries of Ancient Egypt
Downs, Jonathan
ISBN: 9781845295790
Constable  2008 
 Hard Cover New book, 262 pages. In 1798, General Napoleon Bonaparte set sail for Egypt at the head of an invasion fleet over twice the size of the Spanish Armada. With him went 167 'savants', a corps of hand-picked scientists, artists, naturalists, geographers and engineers, the aim being not only military conquest but also to rediscover the lost civilisation of the Nile. In the following year, French army engineers working in the town of Rosetta made a startling find: a dark polished stone bearing three inscriptions, in Greek, demotic, and ancient heiroglyphs. This book charts the fate of the Stone, from the Institut d'Egypte in Cairo to the ruine of Alexandria, where Napoleons forces were besieged by the British. For the first time the extraordinary story of the battle for the Stone and how it finally arrived in England is told in full: how the despised General Menou concealed it amid a treasure trove of Egyptian antiquities in the back streets of the city; and how a Cambridge scholar, Edward Daniel Clarke and his student companion John Cripps, were sent in with Lord Elgin's agent William Richard Hamilton, to track down the Stone in the greatest scavenger hunt of the day.  As New/As New

Four Weeks in May: The Loss of HMS Coventry, A Captains’s Story
Dyke, David Hart
ISBN: 9781843545903
Atlantic Books London 2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 272 pages. On 25 May 1982, at a critical juncture in the Falklands War, the destroyer HMS Coventry was attacked by Argentinian aircraft. In a devestating strike, she was hit by three bombs, two of which exploded inside her hull, killing nineteen of her crew and leaving many others badly injured. Within minutes, Coventry had capsized, and would finally sink off Pebble Island the following day. The loss of HMS Coventry was deeply traumatic; it was the first occasion since the Second World War that a British captain and his crew had to abandon a stricken ship and take to life rafts in the cold and unforgiving waters of the South Atlantic.  Very Good/As New

Vulcan 607: The Epic Story of the Most Remarkable British Air Attack Since WW2
White, Rowland
ISBN: 0593053923
Bantam Press London, United Kingdom 2006 
 Trade Paperback New book, 410 pages. When Argentine forces invaded the Falklands in the early hours of 2 April 1982, Britain's military chiefs were faced with a real life Mission Impossible. Its opening shot, they decided, would be Operation Black Buck: to strike a body blow at the occupying army, and make them realise that nothing was safe - not even Buenos Aires. The idea was simple, to destroy the vital landing strip at Port Stanley. The reality was more complicated. The only aircraft that could possibly do the job was three months away from being scrapped, and the distance it had to travel was four thousand miles beyond its maximum range. It would take fifteen Victor tankers and seventeen seperate in flight refuellings to get one Avro Vulcan B2 over the target, and give its crew a chance to come back alive. It was the end of an era - the last time the RAF flew heavy bombers into combat before they were replaced by their digital, fly by wire, laser guided successors. There were many believed that it couldn't be done.  As New

Hurst, Doug
ISBN: 0642704449
Air Power Development Center Canberra, ACT, Australia 1999 
 Hard Cover New book, 218 pages. This book discusses the roller-coaster ride of the RAAF Reserve, particularly since the formation of the CAF fighter squadrons in 1948.

The valuable contribution made by Part-Timers over the years is confirmed. A glimpse of what might have been if their great potential had been more fully developed is also provided. Given today's plans to fully expand the RAAF Reserve, that glimpse, along with the history, should provide interesting reading to regulars and Part-Timers alike.  As New/Very Good

The Quiet Man: The Autobiography of Air Chief Marshal Sir Neville McNamara
McNamara, Neville, Sir
ISBN: 1920800077
Air Power Development Center ACT, Australia 2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 252 pages. For nine years from 1975, Neville McNamara operated at the pinnacle of Australia's defence organisation: as deputy chief of the Royal Australian Air Force, then chief, and finally as uniformed head of all three of Australia's defence services. Told in his own words, this account traces his rise from a small Queensland country town to sergeant pilot in the wartime RAAF in 1942, and eventually four star rank - the second Australian Air Force officer to achieve that level. Over the course of his 42 year air force career, he served in three wars: flying fighters on operations in the South West Pacific and Korea, and helicopters and transports in South Vietnam where he also held overall command of the RAAF units committed to that conflict. Although dubbed the "Quiet Man" for his unostentatious and unassuming style, he finally breaks his silence and writes about many of the events, projects and issues that were the centre of contention within the Department of Defence during the 1980s.  As New/As New

Hide and Seek: The Untold Story of Cold War Naval Espionage
Huchthausen, P.; Sheldon-Duplaix, A.
ISBN: 9780471785309
John Wiley & Sons  2009 
 Hard Cover New book, 414 pages. It was the golden age of cloak and dagger. In the years following the allied victory in World War II, a new breed of men and women entered the U.S. intelligence services, joining those who had survived the war to carry on a covert campaign against a new and wily adversary, the Soviet Union. Naval intelligence has always been acknowledged as one of the key arenas in the Cold War intelligence struggle, but the true details and drama of this fierce competition have remained obscure - until now. Peopled with a motley array of spies, moles, double agents, defectors, techies, military officers, policy wonks, politicians, and more, this comprehensive account goes beyond the previous books about submarine confrontations and accidents to explore the entire spectrum of naval intelligence.  As New/As New

ISBN: 9780593058435
Bantam Press  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 308 pages. The sinking of the Belgrano was one of the most dramatic moments of the Falkland conflict. Signalling for many, Britain's entry into the war, it has been seen as a politically motivated decision deliberately designed to take the country irrevocably into the fight. Now Mike Rossiter - with unprecedented access to sailors from the Belgrano and HMS Conqueror - gives us a vivid and definitive retelling of the events that led up to the sinking. We track the collision course of the British submarine Conqueror and the Argentine warship - as the two sides and everyone on board head towards the climactic moment just outside the exclusion zone set up by the British around the Falkland Islands.  As New

Victorian London : The Life of a City 1840-1870
Picard, Liza
ISBN: 0297847333
Weidenfeld & Nicolson  2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 368 pages. To Londoners, the years 1840 to 1870 were years of dramatic change and achievement. As suburbs expanded and roads multiplied, London was ripped apart to build railway lines and stations and life-saving sewers. The Tames was contained by embankements, and traffic congestion was eased by the first underground railway in the world. A start was made on providing housing for the 'deserving poor'. There were significant advances in the field of medicine, and the Ragged Schools are perhaps the least known of Victorian achievements, in those last decades before universal state education. In 1851 the Great Exhibition managed to astonish almost everyone, attracting exhibitors and visitors from all over the world. Liza Picard shows us the reality of daily life. She takes us into schools and prisons, churches and cemeteries. This compassionate and wonderfully observant book recreates the splendour and misery, the inventiveness and energy, the vices and pleasures of that extraordinary age.  As New/As New

Two Sides of the Moon : Our Story of the Cold War Space Race
Scott, David; Leonov, Alexei
ISBN: 0743450671
Pocket Books  2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 415 pages. Growing up on either side of the Iron Curtain, Alexei Leonov and David Scott shared the same dream - to become a pilot. Excelling at flying, they were chosen by their countries burgeoning space programmes to be part of the greatest technological race ever - to land a man on the moon. Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov became the first man to walk in space; he won a place in history, but almost lost his life. The American space programme was fraught with danger too; in 1966 David Scott and Neil Armstrong were seconds away from death as Gemini 8 spun violently out of control. Both men survived against dramatic odds with Scott later flying to the moon as commander of Apollo 15, the most complex expedition in the histoy of space exploration. Scott and Leonov were eventually brought together in the planning of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project that culminated in the US and USSR crews shaking hands in space as their space craft united. The project marked the end of the Cold War silence and started a friendship that would last for decades.  As New

Savage Kingdom: Virginia and the Founding of English America
Woolley, Benjamin
Harper Press  2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 467 pages. Four centuries ago, and fourteen years before the Mayflower, a group of men - led by a one-armed ex-pirate, an epileptic aristocrat, and reprobate cleric and a government spy - left London aboard a fleet of three ships to start a new life in America. They arrived in Virginia in the spring of 1607, and set about trying to create a settlement on a tiny island in the James River. Despite their shortcomings and against the odds, they built Jamestown, a ramshackle outpost which laid the foundations of the British Empire and the United States of America. An intimate story in an epic setting, Woolley shows how the land of Pocahontas came to be drawn into a new global order, reaching from London to the Orinoco Delta, from the warring kingdoms of Angola to the slave markets of Mexico, from the gates of the Ottoman Empire to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  As New/As New

Daily Life of the Aztecs: On the Eve of the Spainsh Conquest
Soustelle, Jacques
ISBN: 1842125087
Phoenix Press United Kingdom 2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 319 pages. The former politician and international authority on Mexican archaeology and society, Jacques Soustelle, presents a vivid account of the Aztecs, whose fierce, honourable, death-obsessed, profoundly religious people, from their savage days through their swift rise to a life of exquisite splendour in a city filled with 'thing unseen, nor ever even dreamed'. He shows them to have been a people we can understand and sympathise with, even in the darkest symbolism of their blood drenched worship; and he shows what the Aztecs might have become. His account pinpointes them in that moment of their history when they seemed to be on their way to even greater achievements - but the end of their civilisation was already nigh and advancing towards them from the Gulf of Mexico in the shape of Cortes who had landed on March 4th,1519.  As New

Rising Tide: The Untold Story of the Russian Submarines That Fought the Cold War
Weir, Gary;Boyne, Walter J.
ISBN: 0465091121
Basic Books New York, New York, U.S.A. 2003 
 Hard Cover New book, 354 pages. 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 world's 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, this book tells the Soviet side of these secretive operations. Drawing on newly available, as well as interviews with a dozen former Soviet commanders - access never before granted to Western researchers - this gripping nuclear-armed subs were far more dangerous than we ever thought. With sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos, this book 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 sand 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. This book offers an extraordinary insider's history of the Soviet submarine service, and sheds new light on the darkest secrets of the Cold War.  As New/As New

Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race
Rhodes, Richard
ISBN: 9781847371188
Simon & Schuster  2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 386 pages. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb comes this brilliant account of the post-war superpower arms race, climaxing during the Reagan-Gorbachev decade when the United States and the Soviet Union came within scant hours of nuclear war -- and then nearly agreed to abolish nuclear weapons. In a narrative that reads like a thriller, Rhodes reveals how the Reagan administration's unprecedented arms build-up in the early 1980s led the Soviets to conclude that the U.S. must be preparing for a nuclear war -- only for Reagan, out of deep conviction, to launch the arms-reduction campaign of his second presidential term and set the stage for the famous 1986 summit with Gorbachev in Reykjavik, and the breakthroughs that followed. Drawing on personal interviews with both Soviet and U.S. participants, and on a wealth of new documentation that has become available only in the past ten years, Rhodes recounts what actually happened in the final years of the Cold War. The story is new, compelling, and continually surprising -- a revelatory re-creation of a hugely important era of our recent history.  As New/Very Good

Three Passions and a Lucky Penny: An Autobiography By Eric Stephenson
Stephenson, Eric
ISBN: 9781920800291
Air Power Development Center ACT, Australia 2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 160 pages. For nearly 30 years Dr Eric Stephenson was a medical officer in the RAAF, rising to be Director General Air Force Health Services with the rank of Air Vice-Marshal. Even in retirement, he continued working in the Defence health field, until his association with the RAAF reached the extraordinary span of more than 50 years. In this autobiography he describes his early life in England, where the three great loves of his life - Freda, the Air Force and medicine - had their beginning. During World War II, his pursuit of all three almost came to an abrupt end twice, depending first on the lucky flip of a coin and, later on, although through surviving the experience of being shot down over Germany in a Lancaster bomber. His return from captivity at the end of the war allowed him to pick up where he left off with fiance Freda, and saw him become a country doctor in Norfolk. In 1955 he also resumed wearing Air Force blue, only this time in Australia. Here he describe the many momentous changes that he has observed and helped happen in the practice of medicine, both within aviation and the general community - in between indulging his fourth passion (travel to exotic places). 'Doc' Stephenson has become virtually an institution in the RAAF.  As New

Rebel Queen: The Trial of Caroline
Robins, Jane
ISBN: 0743248635
Simon & Schuster  2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 370 pages. The marriage of Caroline of Brunswick to the foppish and unpopular George, Prince of Wales began disastrously and soon got worse. He was repulsed by her vulgar looks and habits; she was disenchanted by his manners and his immediate call for brandy. They did not speak the same language. Three years later they were locked in enmity. Caroline moved to Europe where she lived a life in flamboyant style, entering into scandalous associations with her dashing Italian butler. After the death of their only daughter, George determined that when he became King of England his wife would be barred from being crowned as Queen. In an attempt to divorce her, he brought Caroline to trial for adultery. The trial that followed in 1820 was one of history's most sensational episodes. The event was manipulated by republicans and rabble-rousers of every political shade, and brought the county to the brink of rebellion. Queen Caroline was idolised by the popular press, which raised its voice in anger for the first time, and was adored by the common people. She became a surprising and unlikely political symbol; a revolutionary Queen, a people's princess.  As New

King Charles II
Fraser, Antonia
ISBN: 0297775715
Weidenfeld & Nicolson  1979 
 Hard Cover New book, 524 pages. The story of King Charles II is one of enduring fascination if only because, as Bishop Burnet wrote, he was the greatest instance in history of the various revolutions of which one man was capable. The golden childhood of the boy Prince in the Van Dyck pictures gave way to an adventurous youth in Civil War England and abroad, ending traumatically when his father was executed in 1649. Charles II, King at eighteen, succeeded to 'nothing but the name'. After his valiant attempt to regain the throne was defeated by Cromwell at Worcester, the King made his epic escape - to years of exile, poverty and humiliation in Europe. The 'miraculous' Restoration ushered in a reign coloured by a series by a series of equally dramatic events: the Great Plague, the Fire of London, two Dutch Wars, the bizarre Popish Plot, and finally the efforts of the Whigs to exclude his Catholic brother James from the Succession, culminating in the King's unexpected triumph over them at the Oxford Partliament of 1681. This was the man who was to overcome the many problems of his reign and die not only in control of his country but in the affection of his countrymen.  As New/As New

 Hard Cover New book, 566 pages. Dutiful daughter, frustrated wife, passionate lover, domineering mother, doting grandmother, devoted friend, tireless legislator, generous patron of artists and philosophers - the Empress Catherine II, the Great, was all these things and more. Her reign, the longest in Russian Imperial history, lasted from 1762 until her death in 1796; during those years she built on the work begun by her most famous predecessor, Peter the Great, to establish Russia as a major European power and to transform its new capital, St Petersburg, into a city to rival Paris or London in the beauty of its architecture, the glittering splendour of its Court, and the magnificence of its art collections. Using many of Catherine's own words from her voluminous correspondence and other documents, as well as contemporary accounts by courtiers, ambassadors and foreign visitors, Virginia Rounding seeks to penetrate the character of this most powerful, fascinating and surprisingly sympathetic of eighteenth century women.  As New/As New

Twelve Days Revolution 1956: How the Hungarians Tried to Topple Their Soviet Masters
Sebestyen, Victor
ISBN: 0297847317
Weidenfeld & Nicolson  2006 
 Hard Cover New book, 340 pages. The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was an extraordinary story of bravery in a doomed fight for freedom. Armed with a few rifles, petrol bombs and desperate courage, the people of Budapest rose up against the might of a superpower. For a few exciting days, as the Western world watched in amazement, it looked as though the Hungarians could win and humble the Soviet Union. Russian troops withdrew, but it was not to be. The Soviets returned with overwhelming force and the Hungarians were brutally crushed. Budapest was devastated. Hungary remained an occupied city for a further three decades. Here was the defining moment of the Cold War, when the Soviets showed they would resort to brutal lengths to cling to their communist empire - and the West was prepared to let them. In this new account of the uprising, Victor Sebestyen draws on fresh evidence from Moscow, Washington and Budapest, as well as interviews with participants, that brings new light to a story that will always be an inspiration to those who hate tyranny.  As New/As New

He was surrounded, twenty-four hours a day, by the small group of intimates and pesonal attendants who made up the staff of his Privy Chamber. They organised his daily life, kept him amused and acted as the landline between the King and the formal machinery of government. These men, intermarried, interbred and close-knit even in their mutual feuding, were supremely well placed to rigi politics and patronage for their own benefit. Their influence was important and sometimes decisive: factions in the Priivy Chamber helped to destroy Anne Boleyn, the frustrated the 'Catholic' reaction of the 1540's, and by doctoring Henry's will, prepared the way for the full-blooded Protestantism of his son's reign.

In their aftermath, we exaggerated the men who perpetuated the attacks, shaping hasty and often mistaken reporting into caricatures we could comprehend - monsters and master criminals equal to the enormity of their crime. In reality, the 9/11 hijackers were unexceptional men, not much different from countless others. It is this ordinary enemy, not the caricature, that we must understand if we are to have a legitimate hope of defeating terrorism. Using research undertaken in twenty countries on four continents, Los Angeles Times correspondent Terry McDermott provides gripping, authoritative portraits of the main players in the 9/11 plot. With brilliant reporting and thoughtful analysis, McDermott brings us a clearer, more nuanced, and in some ways more frightening, understanding of the landmark event of our time.  Very Good

This book tells recounts the stories of five very different women, each of whom became a celebrated - or notorious - courtesan: Nell Gwynn, the bawdy, vivacious orange seller turned actress who endeared herself to Charles II - and the county - with her wit and down-to-earth manner; Madame de Pompadour, the extravagent, elegant mautresse-en-titre of Loius XV who became one of the great patrons of her time while enraging the people of France; Marie Walewska, who became Napoleon's mistress to save her country; Lola Montez, the flamboyant, scandalous Irish beauty who reinvented herself as a Spanish aristocrat to win the heart of Ludwig I of Bavaria; Lillie Langtry, the legendary beauty immortalized by the most famous artists of her day and the only woman to completely monopolise Edward, Prince of Wales, later Edward VII.  As New

Red Star Rogue: The Untold Story Of A Soviet Submarine’s Nuclear Strike Attempt On The U.S.
Sewell, Kenneth
ISBN: 9780743261128
Simon & Schuster Riverside, New Jersey, U.S.A. 2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 304 pages. Early in 1968 a nuclear armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence, assembled here for the first time, strongly suggests that the sub, K-129, sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile, most likely at the naval base at Pearl Harbor. We know that the Soviets had lost track of the sub; it had become a rogue. Whilst the Soviets searched in vain for the boat, U.S. intelligence was able to pinpoint the site of the disaster. The new Nixon administration launched a clandestine, hald billion-dollar project to recover the sunken K-129. Contrary to years of deliberately misleading reports, the recovery operation was a great success.  As New/As New

The Glorious Revolution: 1688 - Britain’s Flight for Liberty
Vallance, E
ISBN: 9780349117331
Abacus Great Britain 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 372 pages. In the summer of 1688, seven English peers wrote to William of Orange requesting his assitance to overturn the pro-Catholic policies of their monarch, James II. On 5 November William landed with a massive invasion force and within six weeks James had fled the country, fearing for his safety. Three months later William and his English wife Mary, James II's Protestant daughter, were crowned joint monarchs, accepting the Declaration of Rights that affirmed Parliament's ancient rights and liberties. In his new, highly readable narrative of the period, acclaimed historian Edward Vallance counters the claim made by generations of Whig historians that this was a bloodless revolution - a victory for progress. Civil war was avoided by the narrowest of margins and the conflict was characterised instead by warfare and bloody massacre.  As New

Drake: The Life and Legend of an Elizabethan Hero
Coote, Stephen
ISBN: 0743468708
Pocket Books London, United Kingdom 2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 337 pages. Was Sir Francis Drake a rabid anti-papist, a state sponsored terrorist and slaver? Or was he the embodiment of English sang-froid, an empire builder and hero? He was certianly the most dashing of the many ambitious seamen to serve Queen Elizabeth I, in an age when the world seemed there for the taking. For a God-fearing Protestant of good yoeman stock, turning the high seas into an English lake seemed nothing less than a birthright - especially if the only people in one's way were Catholics. Vividly re-creating the key episodes in the construction of the Drake legend, from the West Indies voyages to the Nombre de Dios expedition, the Armada, and of course, the extraordinary circumnavigation. Coote shows how Drake's reputation was made and challenged, and eventually manipulated in the centuries following his death.   As New

The Last Expedition: Stanley’s Fatal Journey Through the Congo
Liebowitz, Daniel
ISBN: 0749950862
Portrait  2005 
 Trade Paperback New book, 355 pages. A noble rescue mission descends into a nightmare of cruelty, starvation and cannibalism - bringing to a close the European exploration of Africa. Henry Morton Stanley - the man who found Dr Livingstone - undertook the greatest African expedition of the nineteenth century. The ostensible aim was to rescue Emin Pasha, last lieutenant of the murdered General Gordon and governor of southern Sudan. Instead of ten months, Stanley's trip took three years and cost the lives of thousands of people, as his column hacked its way through the Congo - the last great unexplored territory in Africa.Stanley's secret agenda was territorial expansion; and what is revealed so vividly in the accounts of those who accompanied him is the dark underside of both the man and the colonial impulse. Stanley's books have long provided the only official record of the expedition; but in this enthralling narrative, the authors expose the hidden reasons behind the disastrous journey. The journals and letters of Stanley's officers reveal not only his courage and resourcefulness - but also his cruelty and casual brutality.  As New

The Fellowship: The Story of a Revolution
Gribbin, John
ISBN: 0713997451
Allen Lane London, United Kingdom 2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 336 pages. In the seventeenth century, as England was racked by civil war, plague and fire, another tumultuous event was also taking place: the revolution in science. It was the end of a world ruled by supposition, superstition and magic, and the beginning of a new method of thinking based on proof end experiment. And at the heart of this Renaissance were the founding fathers of modern wester science: the Royal Society. This book explores how the Society grew out of a series of meetings of 'natural philosophers' in Oxford and London, and brings its prime movers to life, including: William Gilbert, the first man to test a theory by scientific methods; Francis Bacon, the extravagant, hedonistic philosopher who created the ideal image of the scientist; William Harvey, who carried out gruesome experiments on the circulation of blood; Christopher Wren, then more famous as an astronomer than architect; Robert Moray, a spy for Cardinal Richelieu; the hot tempered Robert Hooke, who transformed the Royal Society's fortunes yet whose work was written out of history; and his ambitious rival, Isaac Newton, who finally established the model od a universe that follows precise mechanical laws, not the whim of gods. This compelling book shows how the triumph of the revolution that changed the world - and still continues 350 years later - was ultimately not the work of one isolated genius, but of a Fellowship.  As New/As New

The story of the revolution of 1848, Hungary's most important historic event, is told here in terms of the towering personalities of Louis Kossuth. In the spring of that year, Kossuth and his fellow noblemen seized the opportunity presented by the European revolutions to legally restore the socereignty of the country under the Habsburg Crown. They also introduced many administrative, social and economic reforms. The goals of the reformers however ran into the opposion of the Habsburg Court, the new liberal Austrian government and the non-Magyar peoples of Hungary who feared Hungarian nationalism. In the ensuing war the country was led by Kossuth. The Hungarians lost the war, and in August 1849, Kossuth fled, never to return to his homeland. He remained a popular idol in Hungary, his name a symbol of the aspiration for independence. His legend grew with the years and was further cultivated after 1945, when Hungary had lost much of the independence for which Kossuth struggled.   As New

The modern world was made in an unruly age of tremendous possibility, and this is the story of that age - an epic of sweat and science, full of bloody-minded, brilliant and heroic characters. It is about men, animals and machines, about the seafarers, engineers, inventors and trailblazers who built the sinews of transport and communication that enabled the British to hold together an empire across vast oceans, deserts, mountains and forests, and the Americans to push the frontier west. It was a wonder of technique, logistics and nerve. Trevor Fishlock puts the reader before the mast, on the dusty road, on the sledge, in the howday and aboard the clanking steamer.

Brown, Jane
ISBN: 0007235704
Harper Collins London 2006 
 Trade Paperback New book, 264 pages. Henrietta St John was born in 1699 into a world of privilege and seeming security. Raised in the heart of Hogartian London and at Lydiard, her ancestral home, she grew into a headstrong woman of letters who numbered Pope, Swift and Johnson among her acquaintances. Yet with more wit than was good for a woman of her time, Henrietta was not the easiest of daughters to marry off. And when she finally succumbed, it was a troublesome marriage from which she was soon banished to the wilds of Warsickshire, accused of infidelity by her pompous husband. Rather than moulder in her country exile, however, Henrietta sustained herself with her gardens - landscapes that won her an eccentric and enchanting company of friends and that now shape this biography. By the time she became Lady Luxborough, the irrepressible Henrietta could be credited with the possession of one of the finest romantic sensibilities and a tumultuous life story that reveals in intricate portrait of 18th century culture and aristocracy.  As New

George Weidenfeld & Nicolson Ltd London, United Kingdom 2001 
 Hard Cover New book, 429 pages. Asked to name the most valuable stone in the world, most of us would think of diamonds, rubies - possibly emeralds. But there is something far more precious buried deep in the bedrock of the remotest mine in the world, a valley in the shadow of the Himilayas. Imperial Jade Green has been famed in the East for a thousand years, eulogised by the Chines as the colour of the kingfisher's neck feathers, the only thing on earth that was said to match its astonishing green hue. By the end of the 18th century, Europe could barely contain its curiosity and explorers were dispatched to a 'barbaric land', forced to negotiate with the Lord of Mines, a King who they reported 'shone like the sun'. But they all returned empy handed, bearing only stolen glimpses of a smoking thicket that 'rang with wild incantations'. It would be another 100 years before Imperial Jade Green travelled to the west, and when it did, it left behind a trail of rubble and misery.  As New/As New

When a queen became sick to death of her husband and took a lover, anything could happen - from discrace and death to political victory.

Edward VII and the Entente Cordiale
Dunlop, Ian
ISBN: 1841195308
Constable & Robinson Limited London, United Kingdom 2004 
 Hard Cover New book, 315 pages. Britain and France have rarely been great friends, and towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign relations were exceptionally poor. Yet only three years after her death the situation was completely revised. On 8th April 1904 the Entente Cordiale was signed between the two countries, a bond that would prove of considerable importance as the world moved towards its first great war. The detailed negotiations of the Entente was the work of two Foreign Secretaries, the Marquess of Lansdowne and Theophile Delcasse. Their task was not easy - but it could not have been contemplated without the amazing influence and tireless efforts of Edward VII. Often regarded as a lightweigth ruler - fond of women, racing and cigars, and not fond of hard work - a very different king emerges from Dunlop's portrait, based on the testimony of those who knew him best and were closest to events.   As New/As New

The prolific Scottish historian Alison Weir, in her new book Mary Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley, grapples painstakingly with a mystery that has dogged history for centuries. At midnight on February 9 1567, a violent explosion ripped apart Kirk o'Field, the Edinburgh residence of Lord Darnley, the 20-year-old King and second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. His unmarked body was found lying under a tree, together with that of his valet. The cause of his death and its perpetrators have remained obscured since that night, though Mary was a prime suspect in her husband's murder. Her apparent apathy regarding the murder investigation was regarded with deep suspicion but more incriminating were the infamous "Casket" letters, said to have been written by her to her lover Lord Bothwell, the supposed architect of Darnley's assassination. Yet if Mary had good reasons for wanting her (Catholic) husband dead, then so had much of Scottish nobility. Using contemporary evidence Weir argues exhaustively that the letters could have been the work of forgers employed by Protestant lords "laying snares for the queen". Sympathetic to Elizabeth I, intent on justifying Mary's subsequent imprisonment and forcing her abdication, the prospect of a young foreign Catholic queen, unversed in diplomacy, refusing a Protestant alliance through marriage was anathema to the Scottish lords. Weir's book claims that Mary's fate was sealed as much by the country of which she was monarch as by Elizabethan England.  As New

 Trade Paperback New book, 287 pages. Learn the scandalous truth about the illicit relationships of some of history’s most powerful men and the women who slept with them to get to the top. There was Madame de Pompadore, brainy but passionless mistress of Louis XV and her successor Madam duBarry...beautiful, stupid, but a whole lot more fun. Fascinating, and endlessly entertaining, Sex With Kings explores sex, power, money, rivalry and revenge. This non-fiction journey through 500 years takes the reader into the throne rooms and bedrooms of Europe’s most powerful kings. From the dawn of time, power has been a mighty aphrodisiac. The royal mistress, having conquered a king, often ran his kingdom, wielding her sexuality as sceptre. Sex With Kings is trailblazing in its exploration of this intriguing phenomenon - the position of royal mistress at European courts, the fascinating women who filled it, and how their responsibilities and rewards changed over the centuries. This is a chapter of women’s history which has remained unwritten - until now.  As New

He also searches for Cook the man: a relentless prodigy who fled farm life, and later the luxury of Georgian London, for the privation and peril of sailing off the edge of the map.  As New/As New

As dusk came down on the evening of 13 January 1834, James Porter and nine other convicts, transported at His Majesty's Pleasure to Van Diemen's Land, captured the newly launched barque the Frederick from their British masters.James Porter had spent the majority of his days since transportation planning how he would escape. Though he had mastered the art of fleeing his captors, he had not ever managed to stay free for long. The men decided to make their way to Valdivia, on the coast of Chile. Six thousand miles away on the other side of the Pacific, surely they could evade the British and assume new identities as shipwrecked mariners?But the might of the British Empire was not to take the piracy and escape of ten convicts lightly and after surviving the perilous journey (an amazing feat of seamanship) and starting a new life in a small town, James Porter's freedom was cruelly snatched away.Porter was again transported to Australia. Eventually, after further attempts to escape he ended up on Norfolk Island. On the island many a convict's spirit was broken but the tenacious attitude of James Porter survived.  As New

The Last Expedition: Stanley’s Fatal Journey Through the Congo
Liebowitz, Daniel
ISBN: 0749950862
Portrait  2005 
 Trade Paperback New book, 355 pages. A noble rescue mission descends into a nightmare of cruelty, starvation and cannibalism - bringing to a close the European exploration of Africa. Henry Morton Stanley - the man who found Dr Livingstone - undertook the greatest African expedition of the nineteenth century. The ostensible aim was to rescue Emin Pasha, last lieutenant of the murdered General Gordon and governor of southern Sudan. Instead of ten months, Stanley's trip took three years and cost the lives of thousands of people, as his column hacked its way through the Congo - the last great unexplored territory in Africa.Stanley's secret agenda was territorial expansion; and what is revealed so vividly in the accounts of those who accompanied him is the dark underside of both the man and the colonial impulse. Stanley's books have long provided the only official record of the expedition; but in this enthralling narrative, the authors expose the hidden reasons behind the disastrous journey. The journals and letters of Stanley's officers reveal not only his courage and resourcefulness - but also his cruelty and casual brutality.  As New

Roosevelt was the dominant president of the twentieth century and helped the United States become the most influentual power.

Cromwell, Our Chief of Men
Fraser, Antonia
ISBN: 1842124935
Phoenix Press, WC2 London, United Kingdom 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 774 pages. No Englishman has made more impact on the history of his nation than Oliver Cromwell; few have been so persistently maligned in the folklore of history. The central purpose of Antonia Fraser's book is the recreation of his life and character, freed from the distortions of myth and Royalist propaganda. Cromwell was a man of contradictions and surprising charm. The ruthless Psalm-singing General of the battlefields was also a country gentleman who, after his victory at Worcester paused to hawk in the fields nearby; the stern Puritan was also an exceptionally doting father; the most decisive and ruthless of commanders was also the passionate connoisseur of music; the strong man of England was prey to exhausting prolonged bouts of irresolution and as Lord Protector kept England on tenterhooks for a week while he wrestled with his conscience whether to accept the Crown. Of Cromwell's fitness for high office, both military and civil, this fascinating biography leaves no doubt. Under his rule English prestige abroad rose to a level unequalled since Elizabeth I. Yet - as Antonia Fraser's judicious assessment shows - his campaign in Ireland has cast a shadow over his reputation. As in all her books, Antonia Fraser combines a high standard of scholarship with a most exciting narrative. The result is a major biography in the finest tradition which displays great insight into this complex man and reveals a totally unexpected Cromwell far removed from the received stereotype.   As New

Cold War: For 45 Years the World Held Its Breath
Isaacs, Jeremy; Downing, Taylor
ISBN: 059304309X
Bantam Press London, United Kingdom 1998 
 Hard Cover New book, 432 pages, large format book. Beautifully designed and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, this companion volume to the CNN documentary series begins with the roots of the Cold War: the military intervention by six nations (including the United States) in the Bolsheviks' 1917 Russian Revolution. The book then takes on the Cold War proper, from the post-World War II rise of the Iron Curtain to the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet government in the early 1990s. "For forty-five years," the authors write, "the peoples of the world held their breath," through missile crises, policies of "mutual assured destruction," the Vietnam War, and the uneasy steps toward détente and full peace highlighted by Richard Nixon's meetings with Leonid Brezhnev and by Mikhail Gorbachev's meetings with Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Special sections highlight the role of spies in the Cold War, as well as the films and literature of the era. This is a copiously detailed account of the major historical force of the latter half of the 20th century that would make an excellent reference book for any household.   As New/As New

Born in 1786, by the time she was fifteen Harriette was well on to her way to becoming England's most sought after courtesan.She counted amongst her conquests the Prince of Wales, at least three Prime Ministers and the Lord Chancellor.There was hardly a young dandy in Mayfair who had not been involved with Harriette, who entranced men with her wit as much as her beauty.A fascinated Walter Scott called her a 'smart saucy girl' with 'the manners of a wild schoolboy'. But when the Duke of Argyll and other rich former lovers refused to pay her an annuity, Harriette decided to avenge herself on the whole pack.With her scandalous Memoirs - a book she was famously told, by the Duke of Wellington, to 'publish and be damned' - she took sensational revenge on London society. In a biography of tremendous style and energy, Frances Wilson makes use of previously unseen letters, law reports and confidential Government correspondence to reveal for the first time the spectacular true story of the sexual celebrity who blackmailed the British aristocracy and even held the King to ransom.  As New/As New

Paradise of Cities: Venice in the 19th Century
Norwich, John Julius
ISBN: 0385509049
Doubleday New York, New York, U.S.A. 2003 
 Hard Cover New book, 336 pages. This book traces the transformation of Venice from a proud independent state into a dazzling dreamscape that attracted artists, writers, and composers from arround the world. In a strikingly effective departure from straight narrative history, the author tells the story of Venice through the experiences and reactions of such famous 19th century visitors as Napoleon Bonaparte, Lord Byron, John Ruskin, Henry James, Richard Wagner, James Whistler, and Robert Browning. Napoleon, having achieved the conquest that had thwarted other forces for a thousand years, was totally indifferent to the glories of his prize. The almost commically lascivious Byron seduced seemingly every woman in Venice until he had the misfortune of falling in love with one of them, and the prim Ruskin obsessively sketched every architectural detail for his seminal book - The Stones of Venice - even as his comely wife grew weary of his celibacy. Wagner worked on Tristan and Isolde in Venice, and Whistler painted his greatest masterpiece there.  As New/As New

Based on a meticulous examination of private papers, court records, and the voluminous Washington archives, Wieneck recounts for the first time the moral transformation that culminated in Washinton's decision to emancipate his slaves.   As New

Philbrick, Nathaniel
ISBN: 067003231X
Viking Pr New York, New York, U.S.A. 2003 
 Hard Cover New book, some shelf wear to jacket, 452 pages. The U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842 was one of the most ambitious undertakings of the 19th century and one of the largest voyages of discovery the Western world has ever seen, Six sailing vessels and a crew of hundreds that included botanists, geologists, mapmakers and biologists, all under the command of the young, brash Lieutenant Charles Wilkes. Their goal was to cover the Pacific Ocean, top to bottom. Four years after embarking, they returned to the United States having accomplished this and much more. They discovered a new southern continent, which Wilkes would name Antarctica. They explored volcanos in Hawaii, confirmed Charles Darwin's theory of the foramtion of coral attols, and collected thousands of specimens that eventually became the foundation of the Smithsonian institute. This was an enterprise that sould have been celebrated and revered as the expedition of Lewis and Clark, but the author explains for the first time why the expedition vanished from memory. Using new sources including a secret journal, Philbrick reconstructs the darker saga. The story pivots on Charles Wilkes - simultaneously ambitious, proud, petty, and courageous, a self-destructive dynamo who undermined his own prodigious feats by alienating his crew, officers and sponsors.  As New/Very Good

Star Dust Falling : The Story of the Plane That Vanished
Rayner, Jay
ISBN: 0143013491
Penguin Books Canada, Limited Toronto, Ontario, Canada 2002 
 Hard Cover New book, 261 pages. In August 1947 in the High Andes, a Lancastrian called Star Dust dissapeared after a mysterious message from the radio operator. This book is the story of those on board that pioneering aircraft, and of the ramshackle airline - British South American Airways - that sent them to their deaths. Run by a charismatic Australian war hero, fresh from Bomber Command, and crewed almost exlusively by ex-bomber pilots, the airline was run on a shoestring budget, and soon became one of the most dangerous airlines in the Western World. After the wreckage was discovered in 2000, this book pieces together the lives of the colourfull passengers and crew, and the Argentinian military men who declared war on one another in an attempt to claim the credit.  As New/Very Good

The Cruel Peace : Living Through the Cold War
Inglis, Fred
ISBN: 185410229X
Aurum Press  1992 
 Hard Cover Used book, rubbing wear to jacket, internally fine. 493 pages. The aim of Fred Inglis's dazzling and provocative book is to help us to reappraise the history of the Cold War, and to understand the influence that it has had upon our lives and opinions. Within the brisk narrative history of the years from 1945 to 1990 which forms the backbone of the book are interspersed chapters of 'Biography' and 'Fictions'. The biographies are of figures, not always well-known, who were in one way or another either heroes or victims of the Cold War. The 'Fictions' chapters explore the way in which Cold War themes were reflected in the popular culture of the day - in films, such as The Magnificent Seven and Doctor Strangeglove, and in the novels of writers like Ian Fleming and John le Carre.  Very Good/Good

The Six Day War 1967: Jordan and Syria
Dunstan, Simon
ISBN: 9781846033643
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, CAM216. Following the lightning destruction of the Egyptian forces at the outbreak of the Six Day War, Israel turned to the forces of Jordan and Syria, with whom Egypt had signed a mutual-defence pact, and who had now entered the war. Jordan's army moved against West Jerusalem and central Israel, while Syria began shelling Israeli towns from the seemingly impregnable Golan Heights. The IDF's invasion of the Golan was as daring and successful as its more famous Egyptian victory, but its success in Jordan - taking the West Bank - sowed the seeds of its future troubles. Comprehensively illustrated with artwork, maps and battlefield views, this new history brings one of the most important of 20th century campaigns to life.   As New

Iftach Spector is one of Israel's living legends - the second-highest scoring fighter ace in the Israeli Air Force, a courageous and much-admired fighter, with a string of successful combat missions to his credit. He was the leader of the flight that attacked the USS Liberty in 1967, and he commanded a squadron of fighter-bombers in both the 1967 and '73 wars, becoming head of the Israeli Air Force's Training and war Lessons Section, then its Chief of Operations.Perhaps his most famous mission was the attack on Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor with seven other pilots in 1981. His career took a more dramatic turn when, disgusted with the Israeli bombings of Gaza, he became the lead signatory of the famous 'Pilots Letter', in which he and 27 other pilots stated their refusal to bomb targets in Palestine where collateral damage would be servere. His maverick conscience is well on display in the artfully written memoir, that allows the reader to decide if Spector deserved to be hounded out of his office and the Air Force.  As New/Good

Israel’s Lightning Strike - The Raid on Entebbe 1976
Dunstan, Simon
ISBN: 9781846033971
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, RAID02. The Israeli Special Forces' operation at Entebbe goes down in history as one of the most audacious counter-terrorist assaults ever conducted. On June 27, 1976, four terrorists (two of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and two of the German Baader-Meinhof terrorist group) highjacked a passenger jet and forced a landing in Entebbe, Uganda. Here they were met by reinforcements, and transferred all the Jewish and Israeli prisoners to the terminal building, with the exception of a few hostage releases. As Idi Amin's assistance to the terrorists became increasingly clear, the Israeli government began preparations for a military assault. The element of surprise was crucial; never before had such a large-scale raid at such a long distance been successfully undertaken. This is the incredible story of how the Israeli Special Forces defied radar for over 2,000 miles, masqueraded as a tyrant in a Mercedes and captured uniforms, and defeated an army in brutal combat, culminating in a triumph of sheer audacity and nerve. A compelling book chronicling an incredible moment in history.   As New

Who Dares Wins - The SAS and the Iranian Embassy Siege 1980
Fremont-Barnes, Gregory
ISBN: 9781846033957
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, RAID04. For 5 days in May 1980, thousands watched around the world as the shadowy figures of the SAS performed a daring and dramatic raid on the Iranian Embassy in London, catapulting a little-known specialist unit into the full glare of the world's media. Hailed by Margaret Thatcher as "a brilliant operation, carried out with courage and confidence," the raid was a huge success for the SAS, who managed to rescue nineteen hostages with near-perfect military execution, although two hostages were killed by terrorists. Despite the acclaim and media attention, details of the siege are still largely unknown and those at the heart of the story, the identities of the SAS troopers themselves, remain a closely guarded secret. This book takes a concise and in-depth look at the dramatic events of the Iranian Embassy Siege, revealing the political background behind it and carefully analyzing the controversial decision by the Prime Minister and Home Secretary to sign over control of the streets of London to the military. Unique bird's eye view artwork illustrates the moment the walls were breached and show how the strict planning of the operation was critical to its success. With input from those involved in the mission, and discussion on the effective training regimes of the SAS, the author strips away some of the mystery behind the best counter-terrorism unit in the world and their most famous raid.   As New

The Northern Ireland Troubles: Operation Banner 1969-2007
Edwards, Aaron
ISBN: 9781849085250
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ESS73. The British campaign in Northern Ireland remains one of the most controversial actions in recent history. This new book by Aaron Edwards considers the strategic, operational and tactical aspects of what become the longest ever campaign embarked upon by British troops. The 38-year campaign, codenamed Operation Banner, went through a number of phases. It began as a peacekeeping operation, morphed into a counter-insurgency operation and ending as a policing and counter-terrorism force. Banner was massive in scale. No less than 10,000 troops were on active service throughout the campaign and at one point as many as 30,000 men and women were deployed on Ulster's streets. Drawing on extensive new research, this book presents an authoritative introduction to the 'Troubles', providing a strategic analysis of the successes and failures of the campaign.   As New

The Falklands 1982: Ground operations in the South Atlantic
Fremont-Barnes, Gregory
ISBN: 9781849086073
Osprey Pub Co  2012 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, CAM244. On the night of 1-2 April 1982, the Argentinian Junta led by Gen. Leopoldo Galtieri made its move against the Falkland Islands. On 3 April British Prime Minister Mrs. Margaret Thatcher faced an appalled and furious House of Commons to announce that Argentine armed forces had landed on British sovereign territory; had captured the men of Royal Marine detachment NP8901; had run up the Argentine flag at Government House; and had declared the islands and their population to be Argentine. An immediate response was required and a task force was rapidly assembled to head into the South Atlantic and retake the islands. From this point until the Argentine surrender on 14 June, the British forces fought what was in many ways a 19th-century style colonial campaign at the end of extended supply lines some 8,000 miles from home. This volume will detail the major stages of the land campaign to retake the islands, focusing on the San Carlos landings, the battle for Darwin and Goose Green, and the final battles for Mt Longdon, Tumbledown and Wireless Ridge, the mountains that surrounded the island's capital, Stanley.   As New
