Sharpe's Triumph Richard Sharpe and the BAttle of Assaye, September 1803, Cornwell, Bernard
41 Cornwell, Bernard Sharpe's Triumph Richard Sharpe and the BAttle of Assaye, September 1803
London Harper Collins 1998 0002256304 / 9780002256308 1st UK; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
This is not an exlibrary, does not have price clipped, and is in excellent condition. Very clean contents, probably read only once. Now in mylar archival dust cover to preserve condition. Has slight tilt. With the return of the brave English sergeant Richard Sharpe--here, to battle the mercenary forces of the Mahratta confederation in India in 1803--Bernard Cornwell claims his rightful place alongside Patrick O'Brian as a contemporary master of historical narrative. Sharpe's Triumph is a riveting story of betrayal and revenge that showcases the deft blend of suspenseful military adventure and sweeping historical detail that has made each new installment of the Richard Sharpe series a number one bestseller in Great Britain and around the world. In the four years since he earned his sergeant's stripes at the bloody siege of Seringapatam, young Richard Sharpe has lead a peaceful existence. But this relatively easy life meets with a brutal end when he is the sole survivor of a murderous attack at the hands of Major William Dodd, a cold-blooded English officer who has defected from the East India Company to join the mercenary forces of the Mahratta confederation.Sharpe rises from the killing field at Fort Chasalgaon vowing to avenge his dead comrades, even if it means pursuing the turncoat Dodd to the very ends of the continent. It is a quest that takes him deep into the heart of enemy territory, where the accepted rules of engagement have been discarded, where ever-shifting loyalties create an environment of dangerous uncertainty, forcing Sharpe to guard against attacks from enemy and friend.The paths of treachery ultimately lead to the small village of Assaye, where Sharpe's company joins the army of Sir Arthur Wellesley--the future Duke of Wellington--to take on the Mahratta horde. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wellesley bravely seizes an unexpected geographical advantage and charges into the white heat of a battle that will make his reputation. It is a bloody confrontation that will make Sharpe's name, too--but first he must survive the carnage and live to tell the tale of what will be remembered as one of the greatest battles of its century. May have minor dust spotting on top edge from shelf storage over time otherwise as new condition.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 400 pages

Realms of Gold a Journey in Search of the Myceneans, Cottrell, Leonard
42 Cottrell, Leonard Realms of Gold a Journey in Search of the Myceneans
New York Graphic Society 1963 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket 
First edition stated. Book and dust in very good condition. "A hidden or secret thing . . . that was how the Mycenaean civilization appeared to me long before I wrote a book about it eleven years ago; and so, I must admit, it still appears today, despite the vistas opened by archaeological and linguistic research over the past two decades. Why, then, add yet another book to the many which have been and are being published? The only justification I can offer is the attraction of something which is neither completely known nor completely unknown, like a great mountain under drifting cloud which reveals now a valley and then a peak, but never the whole."

The other Central Powers on the German side of World War I signed separate treaties.[6] Although the armistice, signed on 11 November 1918, ended the actual fighting, it took six months of Allied negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference to conclude the peace treaty.

The Deserter, Davis, Richard Harding & John T. McCutcheon
47 Davis, Richard Harding & John T. McCutcheon The Deserter
Charles Scribner's Sons 1917 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Dust in brodart cover. When Mr. Davis wrote the story of The Deserter, he could not possibly have foreseen that it was to be his last story the last of those short stories which gave him such eminence as a short-story writer. He apparently was as rugged and as vigorous as ever. And yet, had he sat down to write a story which he knew was to be his last, I do not think he could have written one more fittingly designed to be the capstone of his literary monument. The theme is one in which he has imconsciouidy mirrored his own ideals of honorable obligation, as well as one which presents a wholesome lesson to young soldiers who have taken an oath to do faithful service to a nation.Davis, an American author of romantic novels and short stories, was also the best known reporter of his generation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. ; 7.30 X 4.80 X 0.40 inches; 43 pages

Weston Lewis Emery 1992 0929539303 / 9780929539300 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued Signed by Author
Blue (Infantry color) cover with gold illustration and print. Inscribed to former owner and signed "Muscles" the nickname of author and also signed by author on title page. This is the story of 512 men who worked for a common goal during a period of 155 days. Few of them were together during all those days, but all of them belonged to the same group. Many were no longer there when the job was done. Some gave their lives early - Some were taken prisoner - Some were hospitalized - Some gave their lives later - Some were with the group for 155 days.This brief record of their service in World War II is dedicated to all of them. ADD This is a remarkable record of one unit of an armored division during the last five months of the the war in Europe. It is carefully researched from official documents of the National Archives, and is laced with letters written home. This saga has been compiled by one of the enlisted men who never missed a day of duty and whose first hand view point as a company commander's combat radioman gives us a broad inside view of the company. Several helpful reviews: "We are placing C-66 in the Military Academy Library as an excellent resource for our cadets." Lieutenant General, U.S. Army, Superintendant United States Military Academy West Point May 4, 1994, "Works of your calliber are especially important.... I'm placing your book in the Armor School Library." -- Major General, U.S.Army, Commanding General. Headquarters U. S. Army Armor Center and Fort Knox. May 23, 1994 Rare signed copy. "W.L. Emory takes a different approach in bringing us the history of Company C (Hqs. Co.) of the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 12th Armored Division from November, 1944 to war's end. Most of the other ex-infantrymen authors who have published accounts of World War II relate personal experiences of the excitement, terror, humor, and even boredom of combat. Sgt. Emory takes a more structured and factual approach in this self-published work. He relies on military records found in various Government archives to form the foundation of his book."

A half-track is a civilian or military vehicle with regular wheels at the front for steering and continuous tracks at the back to propel the vehicle and carry most of the load. The purpose of this combination is to produce a vehicle with the cross-country capabilities of a tank and the handling of a wheeled vehicle. A common feature of virtually all German World War II half-tracks was the so-called Schachtellaufwerk overlapped/interleaved roadwheel arrangement with a "slack track" system possessing no return rollers under the return run of track, used from the small Kettenkrad to the nine-tonne capacity Sd.Kfz. 9 vehicle, and most famously used on Henschel's Tiger I and MAN's Panther main battle tanks.
