The War for All the Oceans: From Nelson At the Nile to Napoleon At Waterloo by Roy Adkins & Lesley Adkins
London: Little, Brown, 2006
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: As France emerged from revolution, a young general named Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Egypt, hoping next to march overland to India. It would not happen. Britain swung her forces into action to battle for control of the worlds sea-lanes and thus all international trade.

The Battle of the Nile and then at Acre were the first sallies in what would be fifteen years of bitter fighting. It was a war won at sea, and by the time of Waterloo Britain had gained control and possessed the foundations of her vast empire. Brought vividly to life through the words and stories of the ordinary people caught up in the conflict, this is a sweeping history of the years of naval warfare that set the balance of power in Europe for the following century.

Taking in gallant duels, bloody battles between huge fleets, amphibious assaults, daring coastal raids, and the subtleties of espionage and naval intelligence, this global conflict truly was The War For All The Oceans.

We Danced All Night: A Social History of Britain Between the Wars by Martin Pugh
London: The Bodley Head, 2008
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: Bounded by the Great War on one side and by the looming shadow of the Second World War on the other, the inter-war period has characteristically been portrayed as a time of unremitting poverty, rising crime and mass unemployment.

In this lively and thought-provoking new book, however, the acclaimed historian vividly shows how the British people reacted to the privations of wartime by indulging in leisure and entertainment activities of all kinds from dancing and cinema going to smoking, football pools and paid holidays. He explodes the myths of a nation of unwed women, revealing that in the 1930s the institution of marriage was reaching its heyday, and points to a rise in real incomes, improvements in diet and health and the spread of cheap luxuries.

The result is an extraordinary, engaging work of history that presents us with a fresh perspective and brings out both the strangeness and the familiarity of this point in time.

And All the Trumpets by Donald Smith
London: Geoffrey Bles, 1954
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Orange boards with Silver titling to Spine
2nd impression. [First Edition: 1954]

From the cover: The writer is a Scotsman who was taken prisoner at Singapore in 1942 and spent four years under the Japanese heel, including a period on the notorious Siam Railway. The ordeals he and his companions underwent are frankly harrowing, but the authors philosophy and strong religious faith provide an example of extraordinary courage and fortitude. Not the least interesting part is the account of Donald Smiths gradual rehabilitation after being released and of his eventual return home. This moving book is remarkable for its sincerity.

Escape & Evasion: POW Breakouts in World War II by Ian Dear
London: Rigel Publications, 1997
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Matching Pictorial boards with titling to
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: Men captured in war, deprived of their purpose as well as their liberty, naturally think of escape. During the Second World War, when vast numbers were held in captivity for years, the art of escape and evading capture in enemy territory reached new levels of efficiency and ingenuity.

Prisoners of war were assisted by cleverly disguised equipment, from concealable maps to serrated wire bootlaces, as well as a secret underground network of escape routes, resistance organisations and safe houses. Thousands of prisoners of war and fugitive soldiers owed their lives to a small number of brave and inventive individuals on the outside who risked everything to keep lines of escape open.

In a journey from the streets of Rome to the jungles of Malaya, Ian Dear explores the extensive planning behind and daring execution of eighteen great escapes made by Allied, German and Japanese troops during the Second World War.

Shadow Warrior: The Autobiography of Greenpeace International Founder David McTaggart by David McTaggart with Helen Slinger
London: Orion, 2002
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Blue boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: David McTaggart captured public attention in 1972 and 1973 when he sailed his small boat into a French nuclear-testing site at Mururoa atoll. In 1973, McTaggart successfully delayed the test and led the French to send seven commandos to ram his ketch Vega and attack the crew. McTaggart almost lost his right eye in the scuffle. Fortunately for McTaggart, the whole incident was captured on still camera and caused an international uproar and to the founding of Greenpeace International.

For more than three decades, this restless and driven man took on the worlds rich and powerful. In the process he not only created a long list of friends but an equally impressive list of enemies. He retired to Italy in 1991 and died in a car crash in March 2001 aged 68. The bulk of his autobiography was written before his death and completed from notes.
