Anzac Memories: Living With The Legend, Alistair Thomson
2 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. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; Australia; Military & Warfare; Military. ISBN: 0195537432. ISBN/EAN: 9780195537437.

Bravo Two Zero: The True Story of an SAS Patrol Behind Enemy Lines in Iraq, Andy McNab
4 Andy McNab Bravo Two Zero: The True Story of an SAS Patrol Behind Enemy Lines in Iraq
Corgi 237888 Great Britain 1994 0552153575 / 9780552153577 Softcover Good Condition In January 1991, eight members of the SAS regiment embarked upon a top secret mission that was to infiltrate them deep behind enemy lines. Under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, they were to sever the underground communication link between Baghdad and north-west Iraq, and to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers. Their call sign: BRAVO TWO ZERO. Each man laden with 15 stone of equipment, they patrolled 20km across flat desert to reach their objective. Within days, their location was compromised. After a fierce fire fight, they were forced to escape and evade on foot to the Syrian border. In the desperate action that followed, though stricken by hypothermia and other injuries, the patrol 'went ballistic'. Four men were captured. Three died. Only one escaped. For the survivors, however, the worst ordeals were to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they were tortured with a savagery for which not even their intensive SAS training had prepared them. Bravo Two Zero is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering: a chronicle of superhuman courage, endurance and dark humour in the face of overwhelming odds. Small tears to bottom of spine edge. 413 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Warrior of Kokoda: A Biography of Brigadier Arnold Potts, Bill Edgar
5 Bill Edgar Warrior of Kokoda: A Biography of Brigadier Arnold Potts
Allen & Unwin 237825 Australia 2000 1864489081 / 9781864489088 Softcover Very Good Condition Warrior of Kokoda is the story of Brigadier Arnold Potts, a country farmer from Western Australia who led the Australian 21st Infantry Brigade on the Kokoda Track in 1942. He inspired Maroubra Force, outnumbered and outgunned, to bring the Japanese to a standstill on the ridges overlooking Port Moresby in a valiant fighting withdrawal. To this day, some regard him as 'the man who saved Australia'. However, instead of receiving the accolades of his commanders and the thanks of the nation, Potts was removed from his command shortly afterwards and sent to Darwin to ponder his fate. Many of the veterans of the Kokoda campaign regard this episode as a disgrace and an attempt to cover up the inadequacies of the Allied High Command. Others do not agree and believe that Potts was merely transferred, for quite legitimate military reasons. The controversy remains. Warrior of Kokoda describes the action on the Kokoda Track and Brigadier Potts's intimate involvement in it. It also reveals the behind-the-scenes manoeuvring between Prime Minister John Curtin, General Douglas MacArthur, and General Sir Thomas Blamey. Chicanery and heroism went hand in hand during those dark days. 318 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Military; Military & Warfare; Australian::Australian War.

Allen & Unwin 237548 Australia 2007 1741752051 / 9781741752052 Softcover Good Condition 'In that hour was born in me a fear that lasted throughout the whole winter. It was the dread of dying in the mud, going down in that stinking morass and though dead being conscious throughout the ages. Waves of fear at times threatened to overwhelm me. a little weakness, a little slackening of control at times and I might have gone over the borderline.In the light of the sun, on firm ground, I could laugh at fate. But where the churned mud half hid and half revealed bodies, where dead hands reached out of the morass, seeming to implore aid - there I had to hold tight.'In this gripping account, George Deane Mitchell relives the horror and the humour of being an Australian soldier on the Western Front in World War I.

Tools of War - The Weapons That Changed The World, Jeremy Black
15 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.
