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.

January 25, 1902, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France – d. 13 February 13, 1975, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) French general and military strategist. Originally published in 1966 by Armand Colin as Stratégie de l'Action. "General Beaufre is already well known as the author of Introduction to Strategy and Deterrence and Strategy. To complete the 'triptych' he now turns his logical and enquiring mind to the problem of 'Action' — governmental action in the field of international relationships. This is in a sense the counterpart of deterrence — preventing someone else doing something is deterrence, causing something to occur in spite of the reactions of others is 'action'. With his special brand of logic and lucidity General Beaufre shows that in present-day international relationships, with the spectre of nuclear war ever-present in the background, coercion is no longer a function of the military alone; all forms of pressure, ranging from 'diplomatic' procedures through economic and financial measures to war in all its graduated forms, must be combined into one co-ordinated action. It is General Beaufre's theme that this is most likely to be achieved if the strategic method of tnougnt is extended to a wider field. This is a book which should be read by all those interested in contemporary international relations. " - from the dj Introduction.

Mrs. Bentley Beauman here describes her personal experiences in the Service. The book includes stories ofattacks on airfields and of brave deeds done in the Battle of Britain.

BECK, Boyde, and Edward MacDONALD. Everyday & Extraordinary : Almanac of the Province of Prince Edward Island. Published with the special assistance of The McInnis Publishing Trust. (Charlottetown) : P.E.I. Museum and Heritage Foundation Publishers, 1999. Pp (6),1-137,(1). Illustrated in black & white. Triple Column. Large 8vo, illustrated cardcovers. Edwin Boyde Beck, (b.1960 - d. July 18, 2017, Cable Head East). "This book has its genesis in t he 'Island History Calendar' published by the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation between 1992 and 1998. As Museum staff and volunteerresearchers dug up more nuggets of information, the database used for the Calendar grew. Soon it was one of our most-consulted research tools. The phone would ring with a question: When did..happen? Where did...take place? Who was the one who...? Many times we simply opened the precious "supercal" file on the computer, told it to look for a certain name or date and were able to reel off an answer on the spot. It made us look very knowledgeable. People were very impressed. Now our secret is out. History is in the details. Names, dates, places and events - gather enough data and gradually a story emerges. This book presents the details, organized by year and in nineteen handy categories. The number of stories that emerge - one big one or hundreds of little ones - depend on how you view history and how you read the book. It's designed for use as a reference tool and as a rattling good read. We hope you find it performs well on both levels."

Canadian Defence Academy Press, Kingston, Ontario, 2010, ISBN:9781100149394 
BELANGER, Stephanie A.H. and Karen D. DAVIS, (eds.). Transforming Traditions : Women, Leadership & the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010. Editors: Stéphanie A.H. Bélanger and Karen D. Davis.

(2),i-xix,(1),1-204,(2). 8vo, illustrated white and grey card covers with gold and black lettering to front cover, white lettering to black spine. "As the Canadian navy celebrates its centennial, 'Transforming Traditions: Women, Leadership and the Canadian Navy, 1942-2010', provides a place marker for the full inclusion of women within naval history and culture in Canada. Today, many agree that a sailor is a sailor regardless of gender. While this is no doubt true in many respects, it is also true that the navy did not become the organization that it is today without some challenge and cultural growing pain. The curent status of women in the Canadian Forces' sea environment is testimony to the spirit of those women and men who served before them and, as such, the experiences shared inside this cover celebrate and commemorate those who have facilitated the contributions of women. This voume brings together a collection of leadership experiences and perspectives with a selection of research related to women in the navy. Forthe first time, the voices of Canadian navy women spanning 1942 to 2010 ar e presented within one volume. By representing this scope of experience within one integrated collection, the editors have conveyed an important message -- women have been an integral part of the navy for many years, and are committed to being a part of its future." - from the rear cover.

BELL, F. McKelvey. The First Canadians in France : The Chronicle of a Military Hospital in the War Zone. Illustrated by Sylvester Fulleylove. Toronto : McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, (1917). First Canadian Edition, from the American sheets. Pp (8),vii-ix,(3),13-308,(2) + frontispiece + 4 plates. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to front, gilt to spine.

Tennyson, The Canadian Experience of the Great War : A Guide to Memoirs 218, Cooke p.106, Spadoni & Donnelly 277, Watters p. 464, Rhodenizer p. 665.

In Tennyson's words, "a somewhat fictional account of his experiences with No.2 Canadian Stationary Hospital in France 1914 - 1916."

Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick McKelvey Bell (b. April 10, 1878, Kingston, Ontario - d. January 6, 1931, New York City).

"In glancing through these pages, now that they are written, I realise that insufficient stress has been laid upon the heroism and self-sacrifice of the non-commissioned officers and men of the Army Medical Corps — the boys who, in the dull monotony of hospital life, denied the exhilaration and stimulus of the firing line, are, alas, too often forgotten. All honour to them that in spite of this handicap they give of their best, and give it whole-heartedly to their stricken comrades.

The pill of fact herein is but thinly coated with the sugar of fiction, but if the reader can get a picture, however indefinite, of military hospital life in France, these pages will not have been written altogether in vain." - the Preface.

Captions to Fulleylove's illustrations :

"He Is a Man After My Own Heart!" exclaimed Madame Couillard (frontispiece)

"The Song Was Sad — But We Laughed and Laughed Until We Wept Again (opp. p. 98)

"René Had Risen in the Excitement of His Description (opp. p. 162)
