A History of the Irish Soldier, Bredin, A. E. C
4 Bredin, A. E. C A History of the Irish Soldier
Belfast, Ireland Century Books 1987 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
0903152185 Green hardback with gilt print looks never read. Dust has a tear at bottom edge next to spine of about 1/2 inch by 2 inches. Now in mylar cover for protection. Small coffee ? stain on front endpaper. To condense the history of Irishmen at arms into a single readable volume is no mean feat, and hefty one at that... The work's greatest strength revolves around the British Army, and the myriad campaigns fought by its regiments from the time of King William to post Korea, and at its worst stands as a confused mashing of names, dates, and places, without coherency.Taking center stage, obviously, are the Irish regiments themselves..... it is a lovely single volume history of Irish military service over the past millennium... Bredin's chronicle is amazing in its scope and exciting in its history." From a review. Fully indexed.; Photographs, maps, illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 566 pages

7 Collins, Michael & Martin King The Tigers of Bastogne Voices of the 10th Armored Division in the Battle of the Bulge
Philadelphia PA Casemate 2013 1612001815 / 9781612001814 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover As New in As New dust jacket 
First edition with full number line. Signed by both authors (Michael Collins and Martin King) AND a member of the 82nd Airborne Sgt. Don Jakeway and a member of the 101st, Jim "Pee Wee" Martin. The gallant stand of the 101st Airborne Division at Bastogne has long become part of historical and media legend. But how many students of the war realize there was already a U.S. unit holding the town when they arrived? And this unit—the 10th Armored Division—continued to play a major role in its defense throughout the German onslaught."This is a superb detailed account of a less familiar aspect of a famous battle, often providing platoon by platoon and day-by-day details of the role played by the men of the US 10th Armored Division in the defensive of Bastogne, and thus in the wider Allied victory in the Battle of the Bulge" (History of War), "This book vividly portrays the battle with a series of interviews, medal citations and after action reviews. These are well attributed in the end notes, together with some brief statistics and a list of staff roles. The style should appeal to the general reader as well as military readers and there are good maps and illustrations...Most of the books on their role are out of print so this book is a useful addition on the subject." (ARRSE); Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 296 pages; Signed by Collection of Signatures

America watched, armed in neutrality, as the royal air force struggled through its finest hour. But not entirely aloof. From all over the US, some 240 pilots made their way to England to fly for King George in the name of freedom and adventure. Many of them had to evade the vigilance of the FBI to get there. Many of them became leading aces of the RAF and then the us army air force. Many of them died serving the cause. ; 8.27 X 5.67 X 0.87 inches; 206 pages

Simon & Schuster 2001 0743212967 / 9780743212960 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. An exquisitely written novel of love and betrayal, of money and power, set at the apex of that time of glitz and innocence known as the Jazz Age. CINCINNATI, 1927... Lawyer George Remus became the country's biggest bootlegger, grossing over $80 million until his arrest. Upon his release from prison, he learns that his beautiful wife, Imogene, has left him and that his bank accounts are empty. On the morning of their divorce, he runs her car off the road in the middle of rush hour in Eden Park and shoots her to death. Shocked and fascinated by this horrible crime, the country gears up for a sensational trial pitting the man known as "the king of the bootleggers" against Chief Prosecutor Charlie Taft, the youngest son of the former president. The trial is a national spectacle, a lens focused on the fabulous rise and fall of the Remus empire and the tragic love story within it, and an attempt to answer some tantalizing questions: What actually happened to the fortune? What are the motives of the federal agent who brought Remus down? What complex emotions and desires, leading ultimately to the ruin of three men, really lie within the heart of the woman known as the Jazz Bird? Based on a true story, The Jazz Bird is at once a love story, a crime novel, and the tale of the courtroom battle between two powerful men whose respective futures hang in the balance.; 0.99 x 9.5 x 6.44 Inches; 320 pages; Signed by Author

The Prisoner of Zenda, Hope, Anthony (S C Roberts, Intro) & Donald Spencer
20 Hope, Anthony (S C Roberts, Intro) & Donald Spencer The Prisoner of Zenda
New York Heritage Press 1966 1st Edition Thus; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Donald Spencer 
In slipcase, looks never read.The Prisoner of Zenda (1894), by Anthony Hope, is an adventure novel in which the King of Ruritania is drugged on the eve of his coronation and thus is unable to attend the ceremony. Political forces within the realm are such that, in order for the king to retain the crown, his coronation must proceed. Fortuitously, an English gentleman on holiday in Ruritania who resembles the monarch is persuaded to act as his political decoy in an effort to save the unstable political situation of the interregnum. Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 – 8 July 1933), was an English novelist and playwright.[1] He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered predominantly for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, "minor classics" of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance, works set in fictional European locales similar to the novels. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name. (wikipedia); Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 185 pages
