Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race
Rhodes, Richard
ISBN: 9781847371188
Simon & Schuster  2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 386 pages. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb comes this brilliant account of the post-war superpower arms race, climaxing during the Reagan-Gorbachev decade when the United States and the Soviet Union came within scant hours of nuclear war -- and then nearly agreed to abolish nuclear weapons. In a narrative that reads like a thriller, Rhodes reveals how the Reagan administration's unprecedented arms build-up in the early 1980s led the Soviets to conclude that the U.S. must be preparing for a nuclear war -- only for Reagan, out of deep conviction, to launch the arms-reduction campaign of his second presidential term and set the stage for the famous 1986 summit with Gorbachev in Reykjavik, and the breakthroughs that followed. Drawing on personal interviews with both Soviet and U.S. participants, and on a wealth of new documentation that has become available only in the past ten years, Rhodes recounts what actually happened in the final years of the Cold War. The story is new, compelling, and continually surprising -- a revelatory re-creation of a hugely important era of our recent history.  As New/Very Good

Walker, M.
ISBN: 0773727922
Stoddart Publishing Don Mills, Ontario, Canada 1994 
 Hard Cover New book, some shelf wear to jacket. 392 pages. The Cold War was more or a global conflict than either WW1 or WW2. Far more than a confrontation between states, it was a total war between economic and social systems, an industrial test to destruction. The author reveals how the West built an economic alliance that overpowered the Soviet economy while also unleashing global economic forces that today challenge the traditional nation-state.  As New/Good

Cold War: For 45 Years the World Held Its Breath
Isaacs, Jeremy; Downing, Taylor
ISBN: 059304309X
Bantam Press London, United Kingdom 1998 
 Hard Cover New book, 432 pages, large format book. Beautifully designed and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, this companion volume to the CNN documentary series begins with the roots of the Cold War: the military intervention by six nations (including the United States) in the Bolsheviks' 1917 Russian Revolution. The book then takes on the Cold War proper, from the post-World War II rise of the Iron Curtain to the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet government in the early 1990s. "For forty-five years," the authors write, "the peoples of the world held their breath," through missile crises, policies of "mutual assured destruction," the Vietnam War, and the uneasy steps toward détente and full peace highlighted by Richard Nixon's meetings with Leonid Brezhnev and by Mikhail Gorbachev's meetings with Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Special sections highlight the role of spies in the Cold War, as well as the films and literature of the era. This is a copiously detailed account of the major historical force of the latter half of the 20th century that would make an excellent reference book for any household.   As New/As New

Four Weeks in May: The Loss of HMS Coventry, A Captains's Story
Dyke, David Hart
ISBN: 9781843545903
Atlantic Books London 2007 
 Hard Cover New book, 272 pages. On 25 May 1982, at a critical juncture in the Falklands War, the destroyer HMS Coventry was attacked by Argentinian aircraft. In a devestating strike, she was hit by three bombs, two of which exploded inside her hull, killing nineteen of her crew and leaving many others badly injured. Within minutes, Coventry had capsized, and would finally sink off Pebble Island the following day. The loss of HMS Coventry was deeply traumatic; it was the first occasion since the Second World War that a British captain and his crew had to abandon a stricken ship and take to life rafts in the cold and unforgiving waters of the South Atlantic.  Very Good/As New

Hide and Seek: The Untold Story of Cold War Naval Espionage
Huchthausen, P.; Sheldon-Duplaix, A.
ISBN: 9780471785309
John Wiley & Sons  2009 
 Hard Cover New book, 414 pages. It was the golden age of cloak and dagger. In the years following the allied victory in World War II, a new breed of men and women entered the U.S. intelligence services, joining those who had survived the war to carry on a covert campaign against a new and wily adversary, the Soviet Union. Naval intelligence has always been acknowledged as one of the key arenas in the Cold War intelligence struggle, but the true details and drama of this fierce competition have remained obscure - until now. Peopled with a motley array of spies, moles, double agents, defectors, techies, military officers, policy wonks, politicians, and more, this comprehensive account goes beyond the previous books about submarine confrontations and accidents to explore the entire spectrum of naval intelligence.  As New/As New

The author has managed to capture the spirit of the Australian digger with an anthology of stories, many of which are told in the sometimes colourful language of the soldier. It covers the good times as well as the difficult periods in the long and justifiably proud history of A Company and accurately records the changing fortunes of the Army Reserve over the subject period.  As New

Israel's Lightning Strike - The Raid on Entebbe 1976
Dunstan, Simon
ISBN: 9781846033971
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, RAID02. The Israeli Special Forces' operation at Entebbe goes down in history as one of the most audacious counter-terrorist assaults ever conducted. On June 27, 1976, four terrorists (two of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and two of the German Baader-Meinhof terrorist group) highjacked a passenger jet and forced a landing in Entebbe, Uganda. Here they were met by reinforcements, and transferred all the Jewish and Israeli prisoners to the terminal building, with the exception of a few hostage releases. As Idi Amin's assistance to the terrorists became increasingly clear, the Israeli government began preparations for a military assault. The element of surprise was crucial; never before had such a large-scale raid at such a long distance been successfully undertaken. This is the incredible story of how the Israeli Special Forces defied radar for over 2,000 miles, masqueraded as a tyrant in a Mercedes and captured uniforms, and defeated an army in brutal combat, culminating in a triumph of sheer audacity and nerve. A compelling book chronicling an incredible moment in history.   As New

Zenith Press  2009 
 Hard Cover New books, 432 pages. Slight rubbing wear to jacket. Iftach Spector is one of Israel's living legends - the second-highest scoring fighter ace in the Israeli Air Force, a courageous and much-admired fighter, with a string of successful combat missions to his credit. He was the leader of the flight that attacked the USS Liberty in 1967, and he commanded a squadron of fighter-bombers in both the 1967 and '73 wars, becoming head of the Israeli Air Force's Training and war Lessons Section, then its Chief of Operations.Perhaps his most famous mission was the attack on Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor with seven other pilots in 1981. His career took a more dramatic turn when, disgusted with the Israeli bombings of Gaza, he became the lead signatory of the famous 'Pilots Letter', in which he and 27 other pilots stated their refusal to bomb targets in Palestine where collateral damage would be servere. His maverick conscience is well on display in the artfully written memoir, that allows the reader to decide if Spector deserved to be hounded out of his office and the Air Force.  As New/Good

Operation Pelican: The Royal Australian Air Force in the Berlin Airlift, 1948-1949
Clark, Chris
ISBN: 9781920800253
Air Power Development Center ACT, Australia 2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 86 pages. In 1948 Britain, France and the United States of America found themselves opposed to their former wartime ally, the Soviet Union, over matter regarding control of Berlin. When the Soviets imposed a blockade on the city, the Allies had no option but to begin flying in the necessities of life for the two million inhabitants of the zones under their administration. When Britain turned for support to its Dominion partners, the transport element of the Royal Australian Air Force had recently ceased flying a regular courier service for Australian occupation forces involved in garrisoning another defeated Axis power of World War II, Japan. To the Americans the 15 month-long operation was codenamed Vittles, while the British called it Plainfare, but to the Royal Australian Air Force personnel involved, the Berlin Airlift was known as Pelican. Here the story is told od the events that made the airlift necessary, what the undertaking entailed and the part that Australians played in it, as well as the outcome and achievements of Operation Pelican.  As New

Red Star Rogue: The Untold Story Of A Soviet Submarine's Nuclear Strike Attempt On The U.S.
Sewell, Kenneth
ISBN: 9780743261128
Simon & Schuster Riverside, New Jersey, U.S.A. 2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 304 pages. Early in 1968 a nuclear armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence, assembled here for the first time, strongly suggests that the sub, K-129, sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile, most likely at the naval base at Pearl Harbor. We know that the Soviets had lost track of the sub; it had become a rogue. Whilst the Soviets searched in vain for the boat, U.S. intelligence was able to pinpoint the site of the disaster. The new Nixon administration launched a clandestine, hald billion-dollar project to recover the sunken K-129. Contrary to years of deliberately misleading reports, the recovery operation was a great success.  As New/As New

Rising Tide: The Untold Story of the Russian Submarines That Fought the Cold War
Weir, Gary;Boyne, Walter J.
ISBN: 0465091121
Basic Books New York, New York, U.S.A. 2003 
 Hard Cover New book, 354 pages. Of all the secrets the Soviet Union kept, none were more closely guarded than those involving their submarines. Throughout the Cold War, Soviet submariners patrolled the world's oceans, playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with their American counterparts in a silent struggle hundreds of feet below the surface. For the first time, this book tells the Soviet side of these secretive operations. Drawing on newly available, as well as interviews with a dozen former Soviet commanders - access never before granted to Western researchers - this gripping nuclear-armed subs were far more dangerous than we ever thought. With sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos, this book recounts successful Soviet operations, including top-secret exercises off the American coast, and espionage coups, such as the spy-ship that monitored American missile tests off the Florida coast and collected the debris in full view of the US Navy. All too common were the near-misses, heroic rescues, and deadly catastrophes that plagued Soviet submarines over the years, including the horrific nuclear accident on board the ill-fated K-19, later nicknamed the "Hiroshima"; the internal fire that sand the K-8 in 1970 with twenty-two sailors on board, and the dramatic escape of crewmembers from the Komsomolets in 1989, as narrated by a survivor. This book offers an extraordinary insider's history of the Soviet submarine service, and sheds new light on the darkest secrets of the Cold War.  As New/As New

Now Mike Rossiter - with unprecedented access to sailors from the Belgrano and HMS Conqueror - gives us a vivid and definitive retelling of the events that led up to the sinking. We track the collision course of the British submarine Conqueror and the Argentine warship - as the two sides and everyone on board head towards the climactic moment just outside the exclusion zone set up by the British around the Falkland Islands.  As New
