THE DAM BUSTERS Paul Brickhill Illustrated PB WW2 RAF Bomber Squadron

This 252 page paperback was published by Pan Books, 1955 and written by Paul Brickhill. It was first published in 1954 . ‘This is the inspiring story of the RAF’s most famous Bomber Squadron. 17th May 1943. Over 300 million tons of water crashed into the valleys of the Ruhr – the most audacious bombing attack of the war had breached the giant Moehne and Eder Dams. Created especially for this great raid, with hand picked crews and equipped with colossal blockbuster bombs, 617 Squadron was used again and again on targets that demanded pin-point accuracy and high courage…The knocked out Hitler’s last and most terrifying secret weapon – the V3s and they destroyed the battle ship Tirpitz and they won two Victoria Crosses and 150 other decorations.’

This 186 page paperback, no publication date given. It was written by Fritz-Otto Busch.

On Christmas Day, 1943, blinded by the fury of an Arctic blizzard, encircled by enemy destroyers, the German battleship Scharnhorst fought for her life. The luck of the Scharnhorst had become a legend. In 1942, she had slipped unscathed through the Channel under the very bows of the British fleet to harry the Arctic convoy routes. The British convoy which sailed for Murmansk on Christmas Eve, 1943, seemed a perfect target for another lightning raid. In fact it was a trap to lure the battleship into the open and then destroy her.


Acceptable condition as a reading copy, pages age tanned, pages 167-186 are loose in one section from the spine but tuck/slot in tightly, no corner tears or pen marks

THE KNIGHTS OF BUSHIDO A Short History of Japanese War Crimes Illustrated by Lord Russell of Liverpool

This 252 page paperback was published by Corgi 1970.

This book is a straighforward account, written with no suggestion of sensationalism, of Japanese atrocities perpetrated in the last war. Murders, massacre, death marches, mutilation, vivisection, and even cannibalism were all practised by the proud descendants of the Knights of Bushido of The Order of The Rising Sun – and condoned by their High Command. The mass destruction by starvation and forced labour which turned tens of thousands of healthy men into diseased skeletons was deliberate military policy.


This 540 page paperback was published by Corgi, 1998 and written by Mike Curtis and illustrated with colour and black and white photos

'The explosive true story of 15 years under fire. Even by SAS standards, former coalminer and likely Welsh Rugby international Mike Curtis has had a remarkable career. He has seen action all over the world. C.Q.B is his story.

C.Q.B Falklands – Goose Green was the first land battle and the longest and most vicious of the campaign. As a member of the heavily outnumbered 2 Para, Curtis was part of the most bloody and significant victory of the war.

C.Q.B Iraq – for forty-two days behind enemy lines, Curtis was part of the biggest SAS overland fighting force since the Second World War

C.Q.B Bosnia – amidst scenes of terrible desolation, Curtis worked closely with all factions and later led a close protection team guarding Heads of State, including the British PM


Good, clean, tightly bound order, coves have mild edge wear
