Castles in the Air The Story of the B-17 Flying Fortress Crews of the US 8th Air Force
Bowman, Martin
Patrick Stephens, UK 1985 
 Softcover Blurb, background,review follow - At first glance I thought this was to be "another war book" but it's turned out to be an amazing achievement to collate so much tactical & personal detail into this modest seeming volume - I'd rate it 10 out of 10 for an "in their shoes" experience. BACKGROUND > After extensive B-17 raids into Germany, Churchill said, "Hitler built 'Fortress Europe' but he forgot to put a roof on it!" Established on 22 February 1944 as a redesignation of VIII Bomber Command at High Wycombe Airdrome, England, 8 AF was a United States Army Air Forces combat air force in the European Theater of World War II, engaging in operations primarily in the Northern Europe AOR, carrying out strategic bombing of enemy targets in France, the Low countries and Germany and engaging in air to air fighter combat against enemy aircraft until the German Capitulation in May 1945. It was the largest of the deployed combat Army Air Forces in numbers of personnel, aircraft and equipment. Very well read (worn covers) & no wonder!! Lest We Forget  Good-fair/Fair

LETTERS OF ALICE B. TOKLAS, STAYING ON ALONE
Burns Edward (ed)
Liveright USA 1973 1st
 Hardcover This book from a US county library but may have been a reference work rather than a lending copy, reference card at rear, id on spine, plastic wrap, VGood condition. Clean pages. Clean, unclipped jacket. 426 well bound pages with bw photos throughout. Edited by Edward Burns, intro by Gilbert Harrison. review - Gertrude Stein died in 1946, 20 years before Alice B. Toklas met her own end - - the personal letters in this nicely illustrated volume (over 400 pages) are chiefly the ones that Alice wrote to numerous people of note subsequent to Stein's death. The earlier-period Toklas letters are not included here. Toklas was a remarkable lady and one would be hard-pressed to unearth a friend who was more devoted to her companion. Anyone who said something negative about Stein was immediately relegated to Toklas' lengthy S***-list. Much of the correspondence here (maybe 40%) was sent to her mentor of sorts, Carl Van Vechten and his lovely wife Fania. Other letters went to people like Sir Francis Rose, Brion Gysin, and so on, often yielding unique insights on Stein's and Toklas' numerous acquaintances and friends such as Picasso, Juan Gris, Virgil Thomson, and many other people of historical significance. Documentation of the escalating feud between Toklas and the Stein family subsequent to Gertrude's death also provides great trivial fodder for the reader's consumption. For fans of the two ladies, however, this book is a treasure trove of "hot gossip" and insight on Toklas' compelling personality.  Very Good/Very Good

Al Smith A Hero of the Cities

Thames & Hudson London 1969 
 Hardcover 800g + 505 clean white tightly bound pp, photos mid section, bio info (wiki) Alfred Emanuel Smith. (December 30, 1873 – October 4, 1944), known in private and public life as Al Smith, was an American statesman who was elected the 42nd Governor of New York three times, and was the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate in 1928. He was the foremost urban leader of the efficiency-oriented Progressive Movement, and was noted for achieving a wide range of reforms as governor in the 1920s. He was also linked to the notorious Tammany Hall machine that controlled Manhattan politics; he was a strong opponent of prohibition. Smith was the first Catholic to run for President. As a committed "wet" (anti-Prohibition candidate), he attracted millions of voters of all backgrounds, particularly those concerned about the corruption and lawlessness brought about by the Eighteenth Amendment.[1] However he was unpopular among certain segments, including Southern Baptists and German Lutherans, who believed the Catholic Church and the Pope would dictate his policies. Most importantly, this was a time of national prosperity under a Republican Presidency, and Smith lost in a landslide to Republican Herbert Hoover. Smith attempted the 1932 nomination, but was defeated by his former ally Franklin D. Roosevelt. Smith entered business in New York City, and became an increasingly vocal opponent of Roosevelt's New Deal.  Excellent/Very Good

The day of Empires has come. Joseph Chamberlain (8 July 1836 – 2 July 1914) was an influential British politician and statesman. Unlike most major politicians of the time, he was a self-made businessman and had not attended Oxford or Cambridge University. Despite never becoming Prime Minister, he is regarded as one of the most important British politicians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as a renowned orator and an interesting character who split both main parties. Winston Churchill later wrote of him that he was the man "who made the weather". Chamberlain was the father – by different marriages – of Sir Austen Chamberlain and Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. (wiki info)  Excellent/Very Good

The Men of Company K The Autobiography of a World War 2 Rifle Company
Leinbaugh, Harold and Campbell, John
William Morrow & Company USA 1985 1st
 Hardcover Offers a moving dramatic portrait of the soldiers and officers of the K Company and their experiences on the Siegfried Line, at the Battle of the Bulge. google reviewer - This book is a history of a WWII rifle company written by members of the company. This book predates many of the more recent WWII books such as the ones Stephen E. Ambrose wrote (citizen soldier, band of brothers, etc.) This accounting is less sanitized and more forward having been written by those who were in the s**t. Reading helped better understand what the soldiers faced and how they thought about what they did when they did it and what they felt afterwards. If you liked Citizen Soldier and are interested in more first hand accounts and gritty detail this book could be for you.   Excellent/Very Good

But with the restless activity of the Aryan tribes in the West each century has grown more and more unlike the preceding. Grecian culture and Roman arms had broken down the narrowness of national and tribal exclusiveness when the Christian era opens. Roman administration had united vast and distant provinces into an Empire. One after the other they had succumbed to the invader.

Travelling Heroes Greeks and Their Myths in the Epic Age of Homer
Fox, Robin Lane
Penguin UK 2009 
 Papeback 504 densely packed pp plus index, remainder mark at bottom. This remarkable and original book proposes a new way of thinking about the Greeks and their myths in the age of the great Homeric hymns. It combines a lifetime's familiarity with Greek literature and history with the latest archeological discoveries and the author's own journeys to the main sites in the story to describe how particular Greeks of the eighth century BC travelled east and west around the Mediterranean, and how their extraordinary journeys shaped their ideas of their gods and heroes. It gathers together stories and echoes from many different ancient cultures, not just the Greek - Assyria, Egypt, the Phoenician traders - and ranges from Mesopotamia to the Rio Tinto at Huelva in modern Portugal.

Maid to Measure
Creed, Charles
Jarrolds - London (The Quality Book Club) UK 1961 
 Hardcover 218pp + index Charles Creed seems to have lived a charmed life, spending his time mixing in the social whirl of Paris, Berlin, Vienna, New York and London, with diversions to Deauville or Biarritz, and flirtations (and more) with 'model girls'. Not one to hide his light under a bushel, he also mentions his own 'innovations', taking a 'pre-collection' to show to buyers in the USA before the haute couture showings, or having suits made with linings printed with the Creed logo. Even during World War II, as an (upper-middle class) conscript to the British Army, he appears to have treated his time amongst the horrors going on around him as just another big adventure. Despite this boastful blather, Creed does, however, give some intriguing insights into the realm of haute couture pre-World War II - book in lovely condition.  Very Good/Very Good

The Crown Jewels The British Secrets at the Heart of the KGB Archives
Nigel West, Oleg Tsarev
Harper Collins London 1988 
 Hardcover ex-library but in really tip-top form throughout. This lively account of Soviet foreign intelligence activity in Great Britain during the Cold War is based on documents newly released from the KGB archives, their "crown jewels", as the KGB unofficially called its most valuable assets. Written by Nigel West, called by the Sunday Times "the unofficial historian of the secret services" and Oleg Tsarev, a former KGB lieutenant colonel, The Crown Jewels provides much new information on the activities of all the well-known British pro-Soviet spies, including Kim Philby, Guy Burgess, Donald Maclean, and Anthony Blunt, as well as many lesser-known spymasters and recruiters, reproducing many of their reports for the first time. The book adds unsuspected dimensions to the famous Cambridge ring (including details of Burgess's offer to murder his fellow conspirator Goronwy Rees). It also reveals a completely unknown Soviet network based in London and headed by a named Daily Herald journalist; describes the huge scale of Soviet penetration of the British Foreign Office from 1927 to 1951; explores a previously unknown spy ring in Oxford; and tells about the key role played by Blunt in supervising post-war Soviet espionage activities in London.  Excellent/Excellent

THE KAISER: A LIFE OF WILHELM II, LAST EMPEROR OF GERMANY
Kurenberg, Joachim von. Translated by H.T. Russell and Herta Hagen.
Cassell London 1954 First British Edition
 Hardcover 370 pp, hard cover in dust jacket. dj clipped & 3 small tears at top corners B&w plates. "(The author) first met Kaiser Wilhelm when serving as a Guards officer in Potsdam. His associations at this time and his subsequent life in the German Embassies at Constantinople, Rome and Vienna, provided him with experience of Court circles which enables him to reproduce, in all essentials, the atmosphere of the pre-1914 period of the Kaiser's life. Appointed as biographer by the Kaiser at Doorn, he was able to consult his subject frequently, and the results of these numerous interviews are incorporated in the text of the work, so that the Kaiser's point of view is given in juxtaposition to the judgement of others. To assist the reader further in passing judgement o n the man, the opinions of the Kaiser's colleagues, his friends, relatives and enemies, are also interwoven. This life is primarily a personal biography, the intention being to provide a full portrait of the man rather than a study of his times. The author had full access to the State Archives in Berlin and Potsdam, and his work is fully documented."  Good-very Good/Good-fair
