We have heard from he novelists and the newsmen, from the politicians and the generals. This book, however, tells an entirely different story. It tells the story of an ordinary airman, a Canadian who served as a navigator in the RCAF from 1941 until 1945, first in the Boston and then in the famous Mosquito. The narrative is based on personal diariesand is all the more moving for the simple, straightforward manner in which Douglas Alcorn, who flew 51 operations against the enemy and won the DFC, describes the events that helped to decide the outcome of the war. To the military historian, this book will be of unique value ion that it establishes the importance of Intruder operations in the ultimate defeat of the Luftwaffe. To the general reader it will be something more than that: an exciting, highly readable and extremely touching account of what it is like to be young and to live, gaily and with dignity, in the presence of death." - from the dust jacket.

17 ALEXANDER, Martin S. Republic in Danger : General Maurice Gamelin and the Politics of French Defence, 1933-1940. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1992, ISBN:0521372348 
ALEXANDER, Martin S. The Republic in Danger : General Maurice Gamelin and the Politics of French Defence, 1933-1940. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (1992). First Edition. Pp (12),[xi]-xiv,1-573,(3). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first full-length study in English of the career of one of France's most controversial military leaders, General Maurice Gamelin (1872-1958). Gamelin was reviled by many of his contemporaries and denigrated by historians as 'the man who lost the Battle of France'. Here Gamelin is re-appraised in the context of the unstable civil-military relations and national decline of the years 1933-40. Basing his account on hitherto inaccessible primary sources and on public and private archives. The evidence reviewed, including Gamelin's private headquarters' diary, provides the basis for a revision of the earlier hostile portraits of the general. The author argues that less attention should be paid to the campaign in France in 1940, by which time Gamelin's role was that of co-ordinator and adviser. Rather, he suggests that great credit is due to Gamelin for his success in holding together the pre-war civil-military consensus, and for re-arming France by 1939." Contents : Introduction : Maurice Gamelin,the defence of France and the decline of the Third Republic. 1. The making of a republican general; 2. Gamelin and the rebirth of German power; 3. Fi rst responses: defence versus détente in the Laval era; 4. The Popular Front, the army and politics; 5. The road to rearmament: Gamelin, Daladier and Popular Front defence policy; 6.

Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated orange card covers, lettered inwhite and black, with a blank spine. "Just after the first Great War, Mars hal Foch was asked the secret of success. He is reported to have thought for a minute befeore saying, "Take the difference between the old rough-riding hard rubber tire and the pneumatic tire—all we needed to achieve a great improvement was a little hot air." A light-hearted look ai ourselves is otten as revealing as an in-depth study -- and certainly a lot more fun. This book is dedicated to all those devoted men and women who are driven by professional pride of accomplishment, as well as by a touch of frustration, andenslaved by the computer. We hope this "cool" breeze of humor will be the pause that recharges." (prefatory note by Otto Mation). Very good. 16.00
