1 ATKINSON, Rick Long Gray Line : The American Journey of West Point's Class of 1966. 1st USin dj
Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1989, 
ATKINSON, Rick. The Long Gray Line. [dustjackets adds : The American Journey of West Point's Class of 1966]. Boston : Houghton Mifflin Co., 1989. First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xiii,(3),[1]-592,+ 24 pp.photos. 8vo, grey paper-covered boards, blue cloth spine. "Theirs was the dream of all young men : tobecome heroes. Inspired by John E Kennedy's call to serve the nation, the West Point class of 1966 first gathered above the Hudson River on a glorious afternoon in July 1962. But as the cadets swore their oath of allegiance,they could not begin to imagine the dark journey that lay ahead. The Long Gray Line is the true story of that journey, an epic tale about an extraordinary generation of military officers and the women they loved. This spellbinding narrative brings to life a rich cast of characters, including Douglas MacArthur, William Westmoreland, and a score of other memorable figures. Yet the story is told primarily through the lives of three classmates. JackWheeler, whose intelligence is surpassed only by his idealism, comes from a long line of soldiers, but gradually he discovers that he lacks any real appetite for the bloody art of war. Brash and impetuous Tom Carhart aspiresto wear a general's stars, yet he is haunted by bad luck and his stubborn refusal to compromise his principles. George Crocker, born to lead troops through the dark of night, becomes ever more proficient as a warrior, and his story is the story of the Army over the past quarter century. Rick Atkinson tracks the men of '66 through their high-spirited cadet years and into the fires of Vietnam, where dozens of them died and hundreds more grew disillusioned. During the hard peace that followed, they resigned from the Army in record numbers, only to find that civilian life offered no easy answers either. West Point - an institution of mythic proportions - remained a powerful influence in their lives, even as the academy itself weathered a period of profound change. The tragic war, a shameful cneating scanda, the divisive questioning of the ideals upon which the academy had stood for nearly two centuries — all shook West Point to its foundation, forcing soldiers andciivilians alike to reconsider the. role of the military in a democratic s ociety. Brilliantly conceived and eloquently written, The Long Gray Line tells a deeply affecting story that spans twenty-five turbulent years. The West Point class of 1966 straddled a fault line in American history, and thismasterly book speaks for a generation about innocence, patriotism, and the price we pay for our dreams." - from the dj.

BOLTON, Herbert Eugene. Rim of Christendom : A Biography of Eusebio Francisco Kino, Pacific Coast Pioneer. New York : The Macmillan Company, (November) 1936. Second Printing. Pp (6),vii-xiv,(4),3-644 + 12 leaves of plates + 8folding maps (some large). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. Dinges, (ed.), Arizona 100 : A Centennial Gathering of Essentia l Books on the Grand Canyon State, 9. "Eusebio Francisco Kino was the most picturesque missionary pioneer in all North America - explorerer, astronomer, cartographer, mission builder, ranchman, cattle king, and defender of the frontier. His biography is not merely the life story of a remarkable individual; it illuminates the culture history of a large part of the Western Hemisphere in its pioneer stages. Born it Italy, educated in Germany, sojourner in Spain and Mexico City, missionary and royal cosmographer in California, Kino was with the first expedition which ever reached the Pacific Oceanby crossing the Peninsula. This was in 1684, just when LaSalle landed his colony in Texas; when England annulled the charter of Massachussets and thereby raised a storm; when Philadelphia was three years old and Charleston was celebrating its fourteenth birthday. This California episode in Kino's romantic career closed with a pirate-chasing voyage on the Pacific to protect the treasure-laden Phillipine Galleon on its return from Manila to Mexico. For a quarter of a century Kino was the outstanding figure on the Sonora - Arizona - California frontier. A score of present-day towns and cities began their history as mission pueblos founded by him or directly under his influence. Over a vast area in the Southwest and adjacent Mexico, cattle ranching and the introduction of European cereals and fruits owe to him their beginnings. Wheat raising in Alta California, to give a single example, wasbegun with a handful of seed sent by Kino from Mexico across the Arizona d esert to a giant Yuma chieftain whom he had formerly visited on the Colorado River. Kino's maps of Western North America made him famous in Europe even in his day, and with or without acknowledgment they were copied there by cartographers for nearly a century after his death. His manuscripts now brought to light constitute by far the best contemporary historical record of the regions where he labored." - from the Preface. Contents : I. The Jesuits in New Spain. II. A Dream of the Orient. III. The Way to the Indies. IV. Old Mexico. V. Preliminaries. VI. La Paz. VII. San Bruno. VIII. Farther Afield. IX. Pioneer Life. X. Preparing for a Great Adventure. XI.

In 1970, the Canadian ship Hudson left Halifax with a cargo of computers, mangetometers, sampling bottles and a score ormore of some of the world's best-known oceanographic scientists. Their mis sion was to circumnavigate North and South America, cross the roof of the world through the Northwest Passage, round the outer coast of Newfoundland and sail back to Halifax. It was by any odds one of the most ambitious expeditions of its kind ever mounted by any nation. Promoted by the Canadian government, the $1,500,000 trip took nearly three years to plan. Alan Edmonds imbues his account of the journey with all the genuine excitement and immediacy that inspired this human and scientific adventure in discovery. Throughout the voyage the Hudson's crew of scientists performed unprecedented newexperiments in biology and chemistry in their searching study of the ocean s and of the land beneath and around them. The results of their work could ultimately affect the life of every creature on planet Earth." - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 35.00

It was by any odds one of the most ambitious expeditions of its kind ever mounted by any nation. Promoted by the Canadian government, the $1,500,000 trip took nearly three years to plan. Alan Edmonds imbues his account of the journey with all the genuine excitement and immediacy that inspired this human and scientific adventure in discovery. Throughout the voyage the Hudson's crew of scientists performed unprecedented newexperiments in biology and chemistry in their searching study of the ocean s and of the land beneath and around them. The results of their work could ultimately affect the life of every creature on planet Earth." - from the dj. Gift inscription, else very good in edgeworn, unclipped dustjacket. 25.00

Grub Street, London, 2001, ISBN:1902304748 
FRANKS, Norman. Buck McNair : Canadian Spitfire Ace. The Story of Group Captain R W McNair Dso, DfC & Bars, Ld'H, CdG, RCAF. London: Grub Street, (2001). First Printing. Pp. (5),vi-vii,(1),[1]-179,(1), + [16] p. of black and white plates. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Robert 'Buck' McNair came from Nova Scotia, the second ofthree sons born of a mix of Scottish and German parents. As a young man he became interested in flight, and was lucky enough to be able to fly floatplanes off the Canadian lakes. When war came, he went through flight training in Canada, sailed to England, and in the summer of 1941 found himself with the nearly formed 411 Squadron RCAF. Eventually this unit began flying sweeps over Northern France and he aw his first combat actions during that autumn. An aggresive fighter pilot, he was chosen by his Canadian CO to accompany him to the besieged island of Malta in the spring of 1941, to coincide with the arrival onthat island of the first Spitfires.Almost before he found his feet, he was nearly killed in a bombing raid. In wartime Malta, there was no chance to recuperate and he had to continue flying which he did with distinction, gaining a number of victories and winning his first DFC. Returning to England later in 1942, he saw action over Dieppe in August, and became a flight commander. After a break in Cnada, he took command of 421 Squadron RCAF in thesummer of 1943, leading his pilots in many sorties over France and gaining more victories and two more DFCs. Finally as a wing leader in early 1944 h is leadership brought him the DSO. However, he had been injured on one sortie which forced him to bale out of a burning Spitfire, and he was taken of operations shortly before D-Day. His score of victories however, had reached 16, with others probably destroyed and damaged." -from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. 25.00
