150 CARROLL, Ward Punk's War. First Printing in dustjacket
Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, MD, 2001, ISBN:1557502366 
CARROLL, Ward. Punk's War. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2001). First Printing. Pp (6),vii,(3),1-224,(6). 8vo, black cloth, metallic red lettering to spine. "From the opening chapter where a Tomcat fighter squadron's commanding officer botches the intercept of a hostile Iranian F-4 to the final uplifting scene. Ward Carroll reveals the inner workings of today's military as only an insider can. Punk's War is a high-tech thriller, afighter pilot's story as riveting as it is honest. Written in the tone of the quixotic lieutenants who populate its pages, this novel vividly illustrates the pressures on the new generation of war fighters. Along the way thebook introduces an engaging cast of characters: a self-centered squadron c ommander hell-bent on fixing his tainted professional reputation; a reluctant air-wing commander more suited for life within the walls of the Pentagonthan on a flight deck at sea; a battle-group commander trained in the art of drivng ships, now thrust into the snap-decision matrix of supersonic jets; and a host of junior officers. Seeking only the ideals they were promised, these technology-savvy aviators are products of pop culture, inimpresed by rank for its own sake and unresponsive to petitions in the name of the professison's lofty motoes. But for all of its irreverence, Punk's War is a loving tribue to those called to service during an unsteady peace and a definitive statement about why flying fighters for a living remains among the most noble of professions."

157 CHAMIER, J. A. Birth of the Royal Air Force : The Early History and Experiences of the Flying Services. First Edition in dustjacket

CHAMIER, J. A., Air Commodore. The Birth of the Royal Air Force : The EarlyHistory and Experiences of the Flying Services. London : Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, Ltd., 1943. First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-199,(1), frontispiece. Text Illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to front board & spine. "About 1935 I began to re-read the official history of the R.A.F. in six volumes. It was then impressed upon me that the story of the development of the R.A.F. had not been told in a form other than that suitable for serious students of war and that there was room for a history which traced the development of the tasks given to the Flying Services and the lessons which might be drawn from the experiences of 1914-1918. I should like to emphasize that the book was written with no other purpose. If criticism has developed rom this study, I hope that it will be accepted in the spirit in which it was written. It is not intended as an attack on any department or individual, but it may contain lessons for the future. As will be seen from internal evidence, the book was written at various times in railway trains, hotels, buses, and cars; it was finished early in 1939. The outbreak of war in September, 1939, inevitably postponed my idea of publication, but it now appears in the hope that it may be of historical interest and contain lessons forthe present."
