The End of the War  Singapore's Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War, Bose, Romen
1 Bose, Romen The End of the War Singapore's Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War
Marshall Cavendish Editions 2005 9812610669 / 9789812610669 First Edition Paperback Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Book looks new. Where there are victors, there are also the defeated. As the Second World War comes to a close in Southeast Asia, the Japanese military forces in the region must face up to the fact that the British will soon return to reoccupy their colonies. The British, on the other hand, have to quickly organise the reoccupation of their former colonies, focusing on Singapore and Malaya. Surprised by the abrupt surrender of their enemies, planning is put into high gear. Meanwhile, prisoners of war and the general population in Malaya and Singapore, having suffered greatly under the Japanese, wait impatiently for the moment when they can once again breathe free. In the midst of this, chaos looms and racial tensions build, ready to erupt. Journeying to the past, this book unravels the intricate details of the culminating events in the history of the end of the war in Malaya and Singapore. Based on research gleaned from the classified documents only recently made public in the UK, an unprecedented exposition unfolds the events that went on behind the scenes as the British prepared to return to the region to reestablish their authority. With a cast of historical characters ranging from the great and powerful General Itagaki to the less well-known but no less significant members of the espionage Force 136, the events leading up to and following the official Japanese surrender in Southeast Asia is captured in remarkable detail here in one volume as The End of the War: Singapore’s Liberation and the Aftermath of the Second World War.; 0.5 x 8.1 x 5.8 Inches; 211 pages

Leeds Davies 1815 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Written by the author to David Gardner, Esq. who was a cornet in Sir John Cope's regiment of Dragoons and the son of the late Col. Gardnier. This battle is not a battle honour for British Regiments. The regiments present at the battle were: Gardiner’s (13th) and Hamilton’s (14th) Dragoons, Guise’s (6th), Lee’s (44th), Murray’s (46th) and Lascelles (47th) Foot. The Col was killed at Prestonpans southeast of Edinburg in Scotland during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. The Royal Army took a horrific beating by the Scottish. Much of this account speaks of Gardners family history and his conversion to Christianity. Account has been rebound in beautiful marble cover with gold and black label. Original text with uneven cut pages and yellowing due to age. Also contains an Elegy on the death of Col. Gardiner by Rev. Mr. Thomas Gibbons. Pags 139-141 have the top right corner torn out with a very small amount of text missing, otherwise complete. Rare. ; 161 pages

Inscribed and signed by author. A Bicentennial history of Mansfield Ohio. Published by the Rotary Club of Mansfield. Mansfield is a city in and the county seat of Richland County, Ohio, United States.[6] Located midway between Columbus and Cleveland via Interstate 71, it is part of Northeast Ohio and North-central Ohio regions in the western foothills of the Allegheny Plateau, approximately 65 miles (105 km) northeast of Columbus, 65 miles (105 km) southwest of Cleveland and 91 miles (146 km) southeast of Toledo. Greater Cleveland comprises Richland County and Mansfield Metropolitan Statistical Areas as part of the 18-county Northeast Ohio region, which is also part of the Cleveland-Akron, OH Combined Statistical Area.It was founded in 1808 on a fork of the Mohican River in a hilly region surrounded by fertile farmlands, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location with numerous railroad lines. After the decline of heavy manufacturing, the city's industry has since diversified into a service economy, including retailing, education, and healthcare sectors. The 2010 Census showed that the city had a total population of 47,821,[7] making it Ohio's nineteenth largest city. (Wikipedia); Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 140 pages; Signed by Author
