Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
4 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 232555 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages.

Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend, Alistair Thomson
5 Alistair Thomson Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend
Oxford University Press 236134 Melbourne 1995 0195537432 / 9780195537437 Softcover Very Good Condition The Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) legend rests upon the assumption that Australia came of age as a nation when the Anzacs landed on Gallipoli on April 25, 1915 during the First World War. This legend is integral to the Australian sense of nationhood and national character. In this highly original book, Alistair Thompson explores both the creation of the legend, and, most crucially, its effect upon those who have lived in its shadow--the survivors of the great war. Looking at the legend's changing significance for Australian politics and society, the author draws on personal interviews with surviving war veterans, as well as the official histories of Charles Bean, and the depiction of Anzacs in nineties novels and movies. 280 pages.

7 Andy McNab - Editor Spoken From The Front - Real Heroes From The Battlefields of Afghanistan
Transworld Publishers 225656 London 2009 0593064801 / 9780593064801 Trade Paperback Good Condition No Dust Jacket "Spoken from the Front" is the story of the Afghan Campaign, told for the first time in the words of the servicemen and women who have been fighting there. With unprecedented access to soldiers of all ranks, as well as pilots, reservists, engineers, medics, Royal Military police, mechanics, cooks and other military personnel, Andy McNab has assembled a portrait of modern conflict like never before. This is the full experience of our troops on the ground and in the air. The horrors, cruelties, drudgery, excitement and banter of these soldiers' lives combine to form a chronological narrative of all the major events in Helmand during the British Army's time there. From their action-packed, dramatic, moving and often humorous testimonies in interviews, diaries, letters and emails written to family, friends and loved ones, emerges a 360-degree picture of guerrilla warfare up close and extremely personal. It is as close to the real thing as you can get 337 pages. Very light tanning to page edges . Cover has a few faint creases. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Classic examples of battlefield successes achieved by poorly armed and positioned forces reveal how bravery, determination, and sheer willpower "can win the day. Go into the valleys of death at Balaclava in the 1800s, where the Light Brigade was destroyed--but the threat to Britain's supply lines stanched; to Gettysburg, where the persistence of just a few men, for just a few extra minutes, made all the difference; to Arras, where the Allies succeeded in smashing through Rommel's troops; and to 8 other incredible battles.

11 Bryan Perrett Seize and Hold: Master Strokes on the Battlefield [Cassell Military Paperbacks]
Cassell 239534 Great Britain 1999 Reprint 0304351709 / 9780304351701 Softcover Very Good Condition The twentieth-century advent of the motorised battlegroup transformed what used to be a comparatively rare event - the coup de main - into an essential element of attack. Speed, surprise and firepower favour the small unit able to take the initiative against an unprepared enemy, and that is the central theme of this book: eleven such actions, ranging from central Europe in 1916, through the Second World War to Vietnam in 1965, capturing the thrill of the moment when the small motorised force breaks through enemy defences to reach its improbable target. This is aggressive warfare at its sharpest, and makes for compulsive reading. 224 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

14 Christopher Moore Roger, Sausage & Whippet: A Miscellany of Trench Lingo from the Great War
Headline 236030 Great Britain 2012 0755363671 / 9780755363674 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition In four long years, 1914 - 1918, the Western Front maimed a generation of young men and women bonded by combat and burdened by duty. Now, through the letters of Christopher Moore's Captain Cartwright, comes an extraordinary lexicon of the phrases and lingo of life at the front. Whether born from the desperation of gallows humour in France and Flanders - 'If it keeps on like this, someone's going to get hurt' - or borrowed from further afield - 'Cushy: comfortable, safe, pleasant. From the Hindustani, khush, pleasure' - wherever he was, whatever he was doing, Tommy invented or borrowed his own word for it. From Ammo to Zig-Zag, this is a fascinating glimpse into the world of our First World War heroes.So boil up the dixie and scrounge yourself some dooly. By the time you've drummed up you'll be slinging the bat like a barber's cat. 223 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: War; Military & Warfare; ISBN/EAN: 9780755363674.

Now, desperate to save her aunt's foundering nuptial-planning enterprise, she's ready for Justin to repay the favor. All she needs is his scenic ancestral home, where she's determined to show the world that even a woman innocent in the ways of love can turn a simple wedding into the social event of the season. Justin is happy to oblige, but his hospitality may place the wedding party in peril. Unaware of the daring double life he conceals behind a cloak of amiable gentility, Evie and her guests descend on North Cross Abbey. Pursued by enemy agents amid a whirl of festivities, Justin vows to keep Evie safe. But who will protect him from the charms of this alluring woman--and the promise of a matchless love worth any risk? 338 pages. Pen mark to bottom of page edges indicating remainder mark.
