He is also the first tobreak the code of silence about the most elite fighting force in the world.What Andy McNab has to say is so explosive that the British government tried tostop him.A street fighter, a hard case, and a flawless soldier, Andy McNab became one ofthe elite fighting men in "the Regiment"--Britain's covert SAS. His actionsbehind the lines in the Gulf War made him a hero. But the full story of hislife and his amazing career in Special Forces has remained a secret...untilnow.In harrowing detail, McNab takes us inside the Regiment, chronicling nine yearsof covert operations on five continents. Plunging us into a world ofsurveillance, counterintelligence, and hostage rescue, he takes us behind thescenes on some of their top secret missions. For the first time, he revealsthe shocking details of their training--physically severe, mentally grueling, and sometimes deadly. And he dares to expose some of their highlyconfidential codes and rules--including the one that sanctions murder.This is the story of the fighting men of the SAS. Here is how they live. Andhere is how they die...Andy McNab, Sergeant, SAS, joined the British infantry as a boy soldier. In1984 he was "badged" as a member of the SAS--the British special forces--andhas since been involved in elite intelligence and combat operations worldwide.During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that in the words ofhis commanding officer "will remain in regimental history forever." After sixmonths of medical treatment immediately following his release by the Iraqis, Andy McNab was back on active service. He remained with the SASuntil February1993, at which time he was the most highly decorated soldier in the BritishArmy. He is also the author of "Bravo Two Zero." 507 pages. Spine slightly creased.

Viking 229412 London 2008 0091910129 / 9780091910129 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket In Vietnam, Professor, Christian G. Appy has created a staggering and monumental oral history of the type that is created only once in a generation. The vivid accounts of 135 men and women span the entire history of the Vietnam conflict from its murky origins in the 1940s to the chaotic fall of Saigon in 1975. The testimony in this book, sometimes detached and reflective, often raw and emotional, allows us to see and feel what this war meant to people on all sides - Americans and Vietnamese, generals and guerillas, policy makers and protesters, CIA operatives, pilots and doctors, artists and journalists, and a variety of ordinary citizens whose lives were swept up in a cataclysm that killed three million people. A remarkable, eye-opening and essential read for anyone with even a passing interest in one of the 20th century's defining conflicts. 574 pages. Slight crease on front cover.

Song of Survival - Women Interned, Helen Colijn
10 Helen Colijn Song of Survival - Women Interned
Millenium Books 228885 Australia 1996 First Australian Edition 186429065X / 9781864290653 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Thrown into the whirlwind of dark forces unleashed with the onset of World War II, a young woman, Helen Colijn, her sisters, and father flee the oncoming Japanese army. Helen Colijn's account of her wartime experiences is a window into a largely overlooked dimension of World War II -- the imprisonment of women and children in Southeast Asia by the Japanese and how these prisoners of war responded to their dire circumstances. The conditions were terrible. Food was scarce; medicine unavailable. Held in captivity for three and a half years, more that a third of the women in Helen's camp died of disease or starvation. Yet their courage, faith, resiliency, ingenuity, and camaraderie provide us with enduring lessons on living. Though the prisoners had no musical instruments, they had their voices, and from memory scored classical works for symphony and piano. The music that helped sustain them while in captivity is a lasting and precious gift of these women to a world that has witnessed far too much war. 216 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: War::World War II; History; ISBN: 186429065X. ISBN/EAN: 9781864290653.

Tools of War - The Weapons That Changed The World, Jeremy Black
12 Jeremy Black Tools of War - The Weapons That Changed The World
Quercus 226936 London 2007 1847242200 / 9781847242204 Softcover Near Fine Condition "Experienced archers could manage 8 to 10 arrows a minute. With this firing rate, the 5,000 English archers on the field of battle that day could launch 40,000-50,000 arrows a minute, or 700 a second. French infantry and cavalry alike were decimated under the barrage of deadly missiles, and the Battle of Crecy was won for the loss of only 200 English soldiers, to nearly 10,000 French dead. The conquest of France beckoned..." Was the longbow the most significant weapon in the course of history? Or the iron sword, stirrup or chariot that allowed the victories of the great early empires of the East? Though gunpowder, the flintlock and the Gatling gun caused more carnage, did they cause swifter victory? And could anything compare to the effects - militaristic and economic - of the mass military industrialization of the World Wars, with tank, B52, V rocket ...and the atomic bomb? Or must all bow before the new weapons of stealth and precision of the 'military information age'? "Tools of War" tells, chronologically, the stories of 50 of the most significant advances in military technology and, in doing so, provides an insight into the history of warfare and conquest. Each chapter focuses on a specific technology, from the Stone Age to the information warfare age, which has conferred a decisive advantage on the user and changed the way in which war is waged. Author Jeremy Black discusses the specific engagements or campaigns where the weapon had most effect, providing the reader with a course in military history as well as an overview of world history itself. 2007 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: War; Military & Warfare; Military. ISBN: 1847242200. ISBN/EAN: 9781847242204.

13 John Keegan Six Armies in Normandy - From D-Day to the Liberation of Paris June 6th - August 25th 1944
Pimlico 230347 Great Britain 1993 Reprint 0712655794 / 9780712655798 Softcover Good Condition The Allied assault on Normandy beaches was an almost flawless success, but it was to take three months of bitter fighting before the German defence of Normandy finally collapsed and Paris was liberated. In this masterly and highly individual account of that struggle, the reader is subjected to the gruelling ordeals confronted by the combatants - each encounter related from the point of view of a different nationality. While transcending conventional military history, it provides an intensely vivid picture of one of the Second World War's most crucial campaigns. 365 pages. Tanning to pages.

Kokoda, Peter Fitzsimons
20 Peter Fitzsimons Kokoda
Hodder & Stoughton 229881 Australia 2005 0733619622 / 9780733619625 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition For Australians, Kokoda is the iconic battle of World War II, yet few people know the names of the men who fought on the track, or even the details of what happened. More Australians died in the months of fighting in Papua, than in any other campaign of World War II. Now bestselling author Peter FitzSimons tells the Kokoda story in a gripping, and moving, style for all Australians. Kokoda was a defining battle for Australia, where a small force of young, ill-equipped Australians engaged a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track. Again and again, the outnumbered Australians risked everything to stop the Japanese from advancing along the track towards mainland Australia. Conditions on the track were hellish - rain was constant, the terrain close to inhospitable, food and ammunition supplies were practically non-existent and the men constantly battled malaria and dysentery, as well as the Japanese. The Australian troops were wounded and exhausted beyond belief, but always found that extra bit of spirit to fight on, with the help of the local people. 490 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; Military & Warfare; War::World War II.
