New York: William Morrow & Co. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. 0688047815 . 304 pages, plates, maps, cloth, DJ, very good. Stated first edition. From Publishers Weekly: "During World War II the tiny island of Malta commanded both Allied and Axis supply routes in the Mediterranean and was an important intelligence listening post for the Allies. From June 1940 until August 1943 it was subjected to heavy bombardment by Italian and German planes (262 air raids in one month alone) , yet the islanders and the British garrison not only survived but assisted in turning Malta into a launching pad for a counteroffensive. Winston Churchill called the island "that unsinkable aircraft carrier." Although Bradford's book is oddly devoid of individuals, he conveys in magnificent detail the privations of the defenders and the ingenuity with which they coped with bombs, starvation and the threat of invasion. The relief and exultation with which the island-saving Santa Marija convoy was greeted is movingly described." ; 9.30 X 6 X 1.20 inches; 304 pages ., William Morrow & Co, 1986, Stein & Day,, New York:, 1964. US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG CONDITION ( light dj edge wear,prev. owners small name stamp front end papers ), 180 pages, illus., maps, index. --------------------------------- In 1914 Great Britain's naval supremacy was challenged for the first time since Trafalgar. The Allied convoys steaming across the Atlantic and the Pacific were prey to lone German raiders. But of even greater potential danger was Vice-Admiral Graf von Spee with the East Asiatic Cruiser Squadron of the Imperial German Navy at his command. On November 1, 1914, Graf von Spee's squadron, on the prowl in the waters of the West Coast of South America, caught a British fleet at Coronel in Chile. Von Spee's superior power shattered Britain's forces under the command of Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock in a dramatic naval battle, the first of World War I. A century of pax Britannica had convinced the English that the Royal Navy was invincible. The reaction in Britain to the defeat at Coronel was violent. Public bewilderment turned to anger. The Royal Navy wanted its revenge. Mr. Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, and Lord Fisher, First Sea Lord, ordered the destruction of von Spee's forces. They sent a powerful force to the Southern Seas, including the two battle-cruisers Invincible and Inflexible, prepared to search and to annihilate. -------------------------------------------- On December 8, 1914, the vengeful fleet found the East Asiatic Cruiser Squadron, gave chase, and there ensued what history now knows as the Battle of the Falkland Islands. In the second great naval battle of World War I, Britain turned defeat into a momentous victory. Barrie Pitt's triumph as a writer is in the excitement, import, and moment-by-moment suspense with which he has recreated both battles. His book is based on both the German and British records, including information not available to or unconsidered by earlier chroniclers. Revenge at Sea is illustrated with photographs and battle maps., New York 1999, St Martin's, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6x9, 436 pages, maps. November 1943 : Adolf Hitler sanctioned his most audacious mission ever-to kill U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill as they visit Cairo for a secret conference to plan the Allied invasion of Europe, an invasion that threatens imminent defeat for Germany. This really happened and is the basis for Glenn Meade's spectacular new novel. Only one man is capable of leading the defiant Nazi mission-Major Johann Halder, one of the Abwehr's most brilliant, daring agents, a man with a tortured soul and a talent for the impossible. Accompanied by an expert undercover team, and a young and beautiful Egyptologist, Rachel Stern, Halder must race against time across a hostile desert to reach Cairo and successfully carry out the assignment, or forfeit his own life and that of his young son. When U.S. military intelligence learns of the plan, they assign one of their best officers, Lieutenant Colonel Harry Weaver, to hunt down and eliminate Halder and his team. But for Weaver, as for Johann Halder and Rachel Stern, there's more than just the balance of the war and the lives of the Allied leaders at stake-a pact of love and friendship is about to be tested in a frantic, high-stakes chase to the death. Glenn Meade's long-awaited new novel, The Sands of Sakkara, is a breathless, suspenseful thriller with one of the most remarkable chases in recent memory. It is a heart-wrenching tale of friendship, love, and treachery set against the exotic and intriguing backdrop of wartime Egypt.
