Formac Publishing , Halifax, 2009, ISBN:9780887808357 2009 
NAFTEL, William D. Wartime Halifax : The Photo History of a Canadian City at War, 1939-1945. Halifax : Formac Publishing Company Limited, (2009). First Printing. Pp. (5),6-128. Illustrated in black & white. 4to, photo-illustrated pale blue and white card covers with french flaps, blue and white lettering to spine.

"In 1939, Halifax quickly became the country's centre of war activity when Canada declared war on Germany. With its vital naval base and its key role in getting supplies to Great Britain, the city was on a wartime footing for seven long years. Blackouts, enemy ships just offshore, and worries about raids and attacks were part of daily life. So were thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen and merchant seamen who passed through on their way to or from Europe.

'Wartime Halifax' is a visual history of this period. William Naftel has found a treasure trove of archival photos showing the bustling shipyards, construction, convoys and cadets, and never-before-seen images of parades, platoons and personnel. The photos show the dramatic impact of the war on city life - long lineups at movie theatres, crammed dance halls, and crowded restaurants. Visuals and text convey a unique portrait of a wartime city -- not in far-off Europe but on Canada's east coast." - from front flap.

"In September 1939, the British nation rose to defend its shores, finally recognizing Adolph Hitler's intentions of conquest. In the early days of the war, part of that defence lay in the hands of the Royal Navy's long neglected Coastal Forces. But in time, they grew into a formidable fleet of motor torpedo and motor gunboats that menaced the enemy and, quite literally, helped defend the entire Western World. From the very beginning, it was this hit-and-run navy and its unique brand of warring that attracted Canadian fighting sailors. They served in various Royal Navy flotillas until February 1944, at which time they formed two all-Canadian flotillas that operated in the English Channel, and commanded a third which roamed the Mediterranean." - from the dj.

"[...] It was the deadliest naval conflict in history: Most of the 2,919 Allied merchant ships lost to the U-boats in thewar went down in the North Atlantic, and tens of thousands of merchant sea men, naval gunners, and civilian passengers perished. The dedicated U-boat crews fared even worse: Of 1,149 U-boats that entered service in the war, 711 were lost in combat. Of 39,000 U-boat sailors who went to sea, only 11,510 - fewer than one in three - would survive the war. The losses were high because the stakes were even higher. If the U-boats had managed to sever the lifeline between the United States and Great Britain -- as they seemed poised to do by late 1942 - Germany could have denied the Allies their springboard into the European continent, effectively costing them the war." - from the dustjacket.

"For centuries people dreamed of navigating under the sea, but it was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that inventors succeeded in developing practical submarines. With the coming of World War I, nations saw something entirely new in war: the deadly effectiveness of underwater craft, with German U-boats threatened to starve Britain and brought the United States into the war, thus proving submarine operations more important than the great battles fought on land. A generation later, in World War II, U-boats came back on the attack in the Atlantic, while in the Pacific U.S. submarines literally put Japan out of business. Then, in the nuclear age, the true submarine became the most powerful weapon of war ever created — the force that paradoxically kept the peace.

In one dramatic narrative, Thomas Parrish tells the story of those who first dreamed of underwater ships; of the ingenious and practical inventors and engineers who created and developed the submarine; of the visionary and controversial national leaders and naval strategists; of the famous skippers on all sides — steel-nerved men like America’s Dick O’Kane and Germany’s Reinhard Hardegen — who wielded this weapon; of the famous and infamous deeds of boats like the U-20, the Wahoo, and the nuclear-powered Nautilus and George Washington; and of the tragedies that befell boats like the American Thresher and the Russian Kursk.

174 PARSON, Nels A., Jr. Guided Missiles in War and Peace. First Edition in dustjacket
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachysetts, 1956, 
PARSON, Nels A., Jr. Guided Missiles in War and Peace. Cambridge, Massachysetts : Harvard University Press, 1956. First Edition. Pp (4),v-x,(2),1-161,(3). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth spine, lettered in gilt, pale blue cloth boards. "Centuries ago the Chinese scholar and scientist Wan Hu lashed several dozen rockets to his sedan chair; all the rockets were fired simultaneously; and in the blast that followed he disappeared torever. Ten years ago the German V-l and V-2 missiles were raining on England. They killed 5500 people and totally destroyed more than 23,000 buildings in London alone; 1500 Allied fliers lost their lives in bombing V-l launching sites; and it is universally conceded that the Germans' delay in developing their guided missiles was very lucky for the Allies. Yesterday, you could have seen a long-nosed Nike antiaircraft guided missile quietly going into its underground launching site; or heard it tearing off into the stratosphere. And within twenty-five years you may very possibly take off for the moon in a guided rocket — if vast and diversified supplies of guided-missile weapons have by that time scared all the nations away from making war. Obviously, guided missiles are everybody's business today. Each of us, whether citizen, soldier, or statesman, needs to know how they have developed, what they are today, and what they already imply for the future. Here, in brief compass, is a most lucid introduction to guided missiles. Major Parson — who knows whereof he speaks— tells why they are needed and how they have come into being. He describes how they fly, how they are guided, and how they are powered. He forecasts their influence on air, naval, and land combat operations, and outlines their peacetime potentialities. He writes clearlv and with a vivid turn of phrase; ,he provides many simple illustrative diagrams and more than ascore of magnificent photographs. For the man in the street and the soldie r, sailor, and airman — for the science student and the political leader — here is the best possible survey of these fascinating and awe-inspiring weapons."

176 PATERSON, Lawrence. Black Flag : The Surrender of Germany's U-Boat Forces. First American Edition in dustjacket.

PATERSON, Lawrence. Black Flag : The Surrender of Germany's U-Boat Forces. (Minneapolis, MN) : Zenith Press, (2009). First US Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xii,1-196. Illustrated with b&w photos. 8vo, black paper covered boards, red paper-covered spine, gilt lettering to spine. "On the eve of Germany's surrender in May 1945, Grossadmiral Karl Donitz commanded thousands of loyal and active men of the U-boat service. Still fully armed and unbroken in morale, enclaves of these men occupied bases stretching from Norway to France, where cadres of U-boat men fought on in ports that defied besieging Allied troops to the last. At sea U-boats still operated on a war footing around Britain, the coasts of the United States and as far afield as Malaya. Following the agreement to surrender, these large formations needed to be disarmed-- often by markedly inferior forces -- and the boats at sea located and e scorted into the harbours of their erstwhile enemies. Neither side knew entirely what to expect, and many of the encounters were tense; in some cases there were unsavoury incidents, and stories of worse. For many Allied personnel it was their first glimpse of the dreaded U-boat menace and both sideswere forced to exercise considerable restraint to avoid compromising the t erms of German'y surrender. One of the last but most dramatic acts of the naval war, the story of how the surrender was handled has never been treatedat length before. This book uncovers much new material about the process i tself and the ruthless aftermath for both the crews and their boats." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
