65 BRADFORD, Henry T. Dockers' Stories from the Second World War.
The History Press, Stroud, Gloucestershire, 2011, ISBN:9780752456881 
BRADFORD, Henry T. Dockers' Stories from the Second World War. (Stroud, Gloucestershire) :The History Press, (2011). Pp (6),7-127, (1). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. "Dockers' Stories from the Second WorldWar is a collection of several true stories drawn from Henry Bradford's th irty-two years as a Registered Docker in the Port of London, revealing the daring deeds of docklands men in the Second World War. Men were often killed and injured during their everyday work on the docks; noneless, never was the bravery of these men so tested as during times of war. Henry heard manystories from dockers in his time working the docks but it was their wartim e adventures that seemed most vivid: tales of bravery and escapades of men who, once the wars they fought in were over, returned to work in the docklands of the Port of London, on the River Thames in sailing barges, or on coastal or continental short sea trading vessels. Henry Bradford's lively stories and colourful characters reveal the bravery of ordinary men in the Second World War; from Captain Jim Fryer's saving survivors from the bombed hospital ship Paris, for which he was awarded the DSC, to Petty Officer Jack Hicks' quieter but equally memorable posting steering a clinker-built boat on a hush-hush job from the north-east to the Thames, his crew consisting only of an inexperienced co-man and an incredibly efficient WREN. Heroes of London's Docklands is sure to appeal to those whose relatives worked as dockers, and to anyone with an interest in London's East End at war." -- from rear cover Very good. 15.00

72 BROWN, David Tirpitz : The Floating Fortress. First Edition in dustjacket

BROWN, David. Tirpitz : The Floating Fortress. (London) : Arms and Armour Press, ((1977). First Edition. Pp (5),6-160,+ folding plate (Profiles and plan). Illustrated. Maps. Double Column. Large 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the story, in words and pictures, of 'the lone wolf of the north' - the largest battleship ever built for the German Navy. Launched in 1937 and commissioned in 1940, she was not completed until February 1941, and was running sea trials in March of that year - two months before the spectacular sortie of Bismarck, her sister ship. Bismarck's foray into the North Atlantic provided ample evidence of Tirpitz's potential. Althoughit ended in her destruction, it created a serious crisis for the Roval Nav y while she was at large: not only did she sink a British capital ship, Hood, but she forced her opponents to mobilize a total of 7 battleships, 2 aircraft carriers, 12 cruisers and 5 destroyers to hunt her down and sink her.In marked contrast to this, Tirpitz's career was to be a negative one, ess entially strategic, but nevertheless of considerable consequence. Lurking in a Norwegian fiord, Tirpitz posed a constant threat to the heavily- defended Allied convoys that plied between Britain and the North Russian ports, and seriously limited the operational scope of the British Home Fleet. For nearly three years, she constrained the Royal Navy to retain two modern battleships in northern waters, plus an aircraft carrier that would have been much better employed in other theatres of the war. Attempts to winkle Tirpitz out of her lair were as unsuccessful, however, as the attacks made on herup to September 1943. Thereafter, she came under regular air attacK and be tween January 1942 and November 1944, was subjected to 13 attacks by a total of 600 British aircraft. And, in the end, the aircraft triumphed: on 12 November 1944, 29 Lancasters trom Lossiemouth inflicted such damage on 'the floating battery' that she capsized. The latent threat was finally eradicated. Tirpitz the floating fortress is the full story of her design, construction and career. It includes five maps, a large fold-out set of line drawings (by Alan Raven, co-author of British Battleships of World War Two), and over 200 photographs, most of which have never been published before." - from the dj.
