Pp (8),[1]-192,(6),+ 8 pp plates. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. “Oban, Scotland, World War II. A signal station overlooked the Firth of Lorne. Every passing ship, from the Morag Jane to the Duke of York, was challenged and identified. Stephanie volunteered for signalling to "free a man for the fleet." Like all the trainee Wrens at HMS Cabbala, she hoped for a posting to Portsmouth. But the Navy sent her to the Highlands, and a life of incredible harshness. For the Wrens at Ganavan station with their 'blue chapped hands and our socks stuck to our toes with broken chilblains', life was a constant struggle for dry clothes, sleep, warmth, food and the forbidden pastime of Getting On a Boat. Yet Stephanie loved her vocation. She was complete mistress of the Aldis lamp, and the codes which gave her power over the Navy - if she said to a ship 'Turn to starboard', it obeyed. She could converse with sailors at such speedno officer could intercept her. In this way she picked up Jack from Ohio. With he terrible abruptness of the times, he sailed for D-Day and was gone.Then, over fifty years later, a message came from America..." - from the b ack cover. Very good. 20.00

153 BAUMANN, Robert F. Leavenworth Papers No. 20 Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan
Combat Studies Institute, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 1993, ISBN:0160419530 
BAUMANN, Robert F. Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan. Leavenworth Papers Number 20. Fort Leavenworth, Kansas : Combat Studies Institute, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, (1993). Pp (2),iii-x,(1),1-219,(3). Illustrated. 4to, white card covers, black and maroon lettering. "The Soviet Union's agonizing decade-long struggle against a fiercely determined Mujahideen resistance in Afghanistan offers.a compelling illustration of the perils which can await a modern power that commits conventional forces against an unconventional foe in an undeveloped theater. That the Soviets embarked on such a rash course in 1979 isespecially striking in light of the American experience in Vietnam just a few years earlier and Russia's long historical involvement fighting Muslim tribesmen in the Caucasus and Central Asia. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Imperial Russia attempted to impose its authority on the Caucasus only to become embroiled in a protracted and brutal war against the mountain tribes of Dagestan. A charismatic leader, Shamil, emerged to harness the power of a formidable resistance that nearly foiled the Russian plan ofconquest, which was fulfilled only after decades of destructive and costly campaigning. Following the collapse of opposition in Dagestan in 1859, the Russians concentrated on the conquest of Central Asia as far as the Afghan and Persian frontiers. Here, vast steppes and deserts-formidable obstacles standing between Russia and the remote khanates-eventually yielded to the determination and methodical preparation of key Russian commanders. Established by a series of major campaigns from the 1850s to the 1880s, Russian rule in Central Asia remained stable until the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917. With the collapse of imperial power, however, the empire dissolved.Efforts to impose Red rule over the former imperial possessions in Central Asia sparked popular resistance among the Muslim tribes and required massi ve intervention by the Red Army. The four episodes considered in this studyprovide useful perspectives on the nature of unconventional warfare, the a daptability of modern military institutions, the character of cross-cultural conflict, and the dilemmas inherent in the creation " (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Russian Subjugation of the Central Caucasus: The War Against the Mountaineers. 2. The Conquest of Central Asia. 3. The liquidation of the Basmachi Resistance, 1918—1933. 4. The Soviet-Afghan War. 5. Conclusions. Very good. 25.00

154 BAUMANN, Robert Fred Debates Over Universal Military Service in Russia 1870-1874
Yale University, New Haven, CT, 1982, 
BAUMANN, Robert Fred. The Debates Over Universal Military Service in Russia1870-1874. A Dissertation Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Yale University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. (New Haven, CT) : Yale University, 1982. Pp (3),ii-v,1-232 leaves, prinrted one-side only. 4to, duo-tang binding, blue card covers, unlettered. "The purpose of this study is to examine the course and substance of the debates over the implementation of universal military service in Russia during the period 1870 - 1874. Russia's dismal failure in the Crimean War forced Alexander II to make plans for the overhaul of the army. Yet it was not until 1870,following Prussia's compelling demonstration of military efficiency in the Franco-Prussian War, that the Russian War Minister, Dmitrii Miliutin, was able to muster enough support to implement the most important element of his reforms, universal military service. Debate over this dramatic step carried on for over three years from the time Miliutin issued his proposals. Thecentral forums of debate were two special commissions established by the T sar, which worked out the details of the new law, and the State Council. This study employs the journals and records of all three bodies. The debates reveal much about the state of the empire and the enormous social implications of reform. Particular attention is paid to problems of military manpower, privileges and exemptions and the impact of reform on the many national minorities of the Russian Empire." (Abstract). Contents : 1. Introduction :The Crimean War and the Background of Reform. 2. The Outline of Reform. 3. Reorganization. 4. Terms of Service. 5. Commission Debate on Privileges an d Exemptions. 6. Council Debate on Privileges and Exemptions. 7. Reform andthe Empire. 8. Conclusion. Very good. 90.00

(4),[v]-viii,[1]-197,(1). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The more dramatic episodes of the Crimean War havenever lacked historians, but less attention has been paid to the unspectac ular but crucial problem of recruiting for the army which confronted British ministries in 1854-55. This book is the first detailed and comprehensive account of the attempt to find a partial solution of the problem by the traditional method of foreign recruiting. The attempt was abortive and the venerable custom of enlisting and subsidizing troops on the Continent proved to be one of the ultimate casualties of the war." -from the dj.

BEAUFRE, André. An Introduction to Strategy : With Particular Reference to Problems of Defense, Politics, Economics and Diplomacy in the Nuclear Age. Translated by Major-General R.H.Barry, CB, OBE. With a Preface by B.H. Liddell Hart. London : Faber & Faber, (1965). First Briitsh Edition. Pp (4),5-138,(6). Table in the text. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Very good in lightly rubbed price-clipped dustjacket. 500.00 André Beaufre (b. January 25, 1902, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France – d. 13 February 13, 1975, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) French general and military strategist. Originally published in 1963 by Armand Colin as Introduction à la stratégie. "After a distinguished career in the French Army (he was Deputy to Marshal de Lattre in Indo-China, Commander of the French forces at Suez in 1956, Deputy Chief of Staff SHAPE and French Representative on the NATO Standing Group in Washington) General Beaufre is now Director of the Institut Francais d'Etudes Stratégiques, recently set up in Paris to carry out fundamental research on strategic problems. He is therefore uniquely qualified to write on this subject.He has given us a thoughtful and thought-provoking book on strategy in whi ch the whole subject is penetratingly analysed and dissected. General Beaufre's theme is that strategy is a method of thought and a method which, in aworld neither at peace nor at war, should be applied, not merely to proble ms of defence but to politics, economics and diplomacy — in fact to all aspects of Government. War on the grand scale may perhaps be dead for ever butunless our methods of thought are modernized, we shall lose the so-called peace. This is not, therefore, a book simply for the student of defence problems. Anyone interested in world affairs will find it stimulating and challenging. It may well become a classic as a textbook in this branch of knowledge." - from the dj Chapters : 1. A General Survey of Strategy.
