"Written from a sense of urge ncy and a concern forthe future, The Arctic Imperative alerts Canadians to a problem that may assume the proportions of a national emergency. Massive deposits of gas and oil, discovered in the Canadian North mainly by U.S. oil interests, await removal to southern markets. What- ever method of transportation is decided on, it must preserve the delicate ecology, honour the rights of native people, and ensure maximum economic benefits for Canada. Inthis electrifying book, a Canadian with knowledge of the Arctic presses fo r immediate research programs and the formation of a firm national policy, offering background data and proposals for the future. He shows clearly that Canada must take the initiative NOW -or surrender control to American corporations." - rear cover. Chapters: 1. Crossroads Canada; 2.

"By 12 August 1944, the whole of the German Seventh Army and the remnants of the Fifth Panzer Army were caught in a pocket withonly one avenue of escape: the Falaise Gap. The Gap was 20 miles wide and the retreating Germans were beginning to move out through it. The Allies had to act quickly to close the Gap and secure victory, but they didn't. Now,in this new edition of his significant book on the Falaise incident, Major -General Richard Rohmer explains who was to blame for one of the most staggering blunders of tie World War II — who allowed hundreds of thousands of men, thousands of vehicles, and hundreds of tanks to slip through the Allies' fingers. Rohmer, a fighter-reconnaissance pilot, was over the Falaise sector each day until the Gap was closed on 21 August 1944. And in a startlingnew Afterword, Rohmer discloses the identity of the young Canadian pilot w ho caught Field Marshal Erwin Rommel on 17 July 1944, which led to Rommel'sbeing taken out of the Battle of Normandy. The incident had a major impact on the outcome of the war." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjack et. 15.00

3 ROHMER, Richard Periscope Red. First American Edition in dustjacket
Beaufort Books Inc, New York & Toronto, 1980, ISBN:0825300207 1980 0825300207 / 9780825300202 
ROHMER, Richard. Periscope Red. New York and Toronto : Beaufort Books Inc., (1980). First Printing. 'Printed and bound in the U.S.A." Pp (6),[7]-282,(6). Map in the text. 8vo, blue cloth spine, red paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine.

Richard Heath Rohmer, OC, CMM, OOnt, DFC, CD, QC (b. January 24, 1924, Hamilton, Ontario).

"At the heart of Richard Rohmer's most compelling and ambitious novel is the capacity of the over 380 submarines of the Soviet Navy to interdict and destroy the world's oil tanker fleet. As the East-West conflict escalates, the superpowers move toward a frightening collision in their quest for supremacy - the issue - and the weapon - is control of the Middle Eastern crude oil.

As the gripping story surges to its startling climax, the reader is enveloped by its alarming realism. The moves and countermoves are brilliantly contrived — from the violent terrorism of the PLO to the operation of a British submarine; from the most ingenious Red Navy plot ever devised to an appalling ultimatum issued to the president of the United States. " - from the dj.

"The HMS Raleigh was commissioned at part of the British North American Squadron in 1922. She was a Cavendish class cruiser of 12,000 tons displacement, length overall of 605 feet, with a complement of 700 officers and men. On August 8, 1922, in thick fog and without warning, the Raleigh ran aground on Point Amour, Forteau Bay, Labrador. The ship remained hardaground and upright for four years. During this period she was stripped of all salvageable items and was destroyed with explosives in September 1926. Since that time local residents have been salvaging the brass from cordite containers and shells, which were left behind. Each spring new projectiles and cordite wash up on the beach and are collected. This book follows the story of HMS Raleigh from 1922 to the current day. " - from the rear.

6 COLOMBO, John Robert, (comp.) RICHARDSON, Michael, (comp.) ROHMER, Richard, (foreword) We Stand on Guard : Poems and Songs of Canadians in Battle. First Edition in dustjacket
Doubleday, 1985, ISBN:0385250029 
COLOMBO, John Robert and Michael RICHARDSON (comp.). We Stand on Guard : Poems and Songs of Canadians in Battle. Compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson. Foreword by Richard Rohmer. [N.pl.] : (Doubleday, 1985).First Printing. Pp. (2),[iii]-xiii,(1),1-210. 8vo, blue cloth with white l ettering to spine. "We Stand on Guard is the first comprehensive collectionof the songs, poems, and verses of Canadians in battle. It brings together famous poems (like "In Flanders Fields"), well-loved songs (like "Mademois elle from Armentières"), and previously unpublished verses (like "The Fenian Blood-Hounds") to dramatize the history of Canada, conflict by conflict. Over three hundred years of martial experience are covered, from the early Indian battles through rebellions and insurrections to the two World Wars (and even World War III). Many of the contributors are poets as well known as Earle Birney, Robert W. Service, Maor Charles G.D. Roberts, Al Purdy, Alden Nowlan, and Raymond Souster; others are soldier-poets unknown to literary history who put into words the meaning of heroism and human suffering. WeStand on Guard was compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson who explain in their Introduction that far from being a glorification of warfare, this anthology is a tribute to the spirit of man and the love of freedom. The same note is sounded in the Foreword, which was contributed by Richard Rohmer." - (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
