New York 1927, Cosmopolitan. Black cloth, very good, 301p., 35 b. w. photos, folding color map, 15 x 23.5 cm., silver stamped tyopography, clean copy. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION The author travelled throughout Cochin-China, Cambodia and Laos in search of the ancient architectural stone ruins. He has written an exceptional narrative, laced with his travel experiences, impressions with the people, customs, flora and fauna. His description of the profane beauty, the tattooed men, concubines, gentle beauty of the women, the Me-Kong River, as he traversed the countryside. * A keen work describing the people, culture, customs and his travels in Cambodia, Laos & old Annam/Tonking Vietnam. This is also a fascinating insight to his impression of Prince Phetsarath who was his guide around Vientiane. Nice views and commenaries on Angkor as well. Lovely primary insights to the area during the sleepy 1920's. * This work is also a record of the author's quest to find the second of two magnificient cities in Cambodia, inhabited by the ancient Khmers: the first was the best known Angkor and the hitherto lost and vanished Wat-Phu. Wat-Phu was buried deep in the jungle, abandonded and lost since the second century A.D. It vanished suddenly, completely, mysteriously, and all that remianed of it was smothered under eons of jungle growth. * Written by Hervey, whose works led to such famous films as SHANGHAI EXPRESS [1932], starring: Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, and directed by Josef von Sternberg. Also, his very memorable ROAD TO SINGAPORE [1940], starring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. GREEN HELL [1940], AND GREEN HELL [1940], starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Joan Bennett, directed by James Whale. * This work was based on the author's primary travels in Southeast Asia, Indo-China and that area. * Exquisitely written, flamboyant vocabulary, distinct and elaborate descriptions in much detail and elaborate color. . *** PRESS REVIEWS: "King Cobra imparts all the tremendous excitement of coming upon a hidden treasure in the jungles of Indochina. Once I began to surrender to Hervey’s spell, I started as, perhaps, he did to lose all sense of where fact ended and fiction began." Pico Iyer . "Hervey sees the jungle one moment as a vindictive monster, he next as an annihilating river beneath which a whole civilization drowns." Margaret Mead . *** REFERENCE: . A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF HERVEY'S WRITINGS: . THE EUROPEAN INDIA [1913] . THE BLACK PARROT: A Tale of the Golden Chersonese [1923] . WHERE STRANGE GODS CALL [1924] . ETHAN QUEST: HIS SAGA [1925] . KING COBRA: An Autobiograhy of Travel in French Indo-China [1927]. The same contents published in the UK under title: TRAVELS IN FRENCH INDO-CHINA [1928] . CONGAI. [Mistress of Indochine] [1927] . RED ENDING [1928] . THE DAMNED DON'T CRY [1939] . THE IRON WIDOW [1931] . BARRACOON [1950] . And others. * WHO WAS HARRY HERVEY [1900-1951]: . Harry Hervey was born in Beaumont, Texas, on November 5th, 1900, but was educated in Savannah, Georgia and Tennessee. He started writing at about age eight and sold his first work to H. L. Mencken at the age of sixteen. He spent much of his life at Savannah’s old Desoto Hotel, as his mother was in charge of housekeeping from 1923 to 1957. .

In this second installment in the Warfighters series, author/photographers Rich Llinares and Chuck Lloyd provide an in-depth look at the United States Marine Corps aviation organization and its specialized training unit the Marine Weapons and Tactics Squadron One (MAWTS-1). The squadron, located at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, trains both fixed and rotary wind aircrews in the Six Functions of Marine Ari. Twice a year, the fines aviators in the Marine Corps attend the intense WEapons and Tactics Insturctor (WTI) course under the direction of some of the best pilots in the world. Take to the skies over the Arizona desert in the Marines most advanced aircraft. Join the amazing AV-8B Harrier vertical short/takeoff and landing jet as it conducts close air support missions in support of Marine ground troops. Strap in to the advanced F/A-18 Hornet strike fighter on deep strike escort missions with EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare jets. Join the crews of the rugged KC-130 Hercules while they conduct demanding low altitude aerial refueling missions. Marine aviation is more than just fast jets; over half the Corps aircraft are helicopters. Fly in the massive CH-53 Stallion helicopter on air combat maneuvering training missions against the Marine Corps dedicated adversary tactics squadron, the Snipers in their nimble F-5E Tiger II jets. Get down low in the weeds with Marine CH-46E and UH-1N helicopters as they conduct assault support missions with the devastating AH-1W Cobra gunship. Through extensive research, and access to many of the key personnel, both past and present, the authors tell the complete story of Marine aviation and how it serves America s 911 force - the U.S. Marine Corps. In rich detailed text and spectacular full color photos the history of this amazing military organization is described along with its force structure and air wings. Hear directly from the Marines who planned and executed the daring rescue of USAF Captain Scott O Grady from war torn Bosnia. Take a first hand look at how the unique MAWTS-1 unit teaches Marine airmen to be experts in their aircraft and missions.
