PATTON'S GAP - An Account of the Battle of Normandy 1944

PATTON'S GAP - An Account of the Battle of Normandy 1944

By Rohmer, Richard

Don Mills, Ontario: General Publishing, 1981. 240 pp. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "For Peter Kent, the maestro at CKCO-TV, with thanks for your co-op. Richard Rohmer 17 June 81." Gray boards lettered in silver on the spine. Rubbing on the corners with a few nicks around the edges of the dustjacket; price intact; aside from the author's inscription, no interior markings. By August 12, 1944, the whole of the German Seventh Army and the remnants of the Fifth Panzer Army had been nearly encircled by the combined forces of the Allies. The pocket in which they were apparently trapped was enormous. Hundreds of thousands of men, thousands of vehicles, hundreds of tanks - an entire army - all were in a pocket with only one avenue of escape - the Falaise Gap. The Gap was twenty miles wide, and through it the first of the retreating German vehicles were beginning to move. And the Allies did not give the order to stop them. There is no question that this enormous military blunder not only served in prolonging the agony of World War II, but it was also a blunder that should have and could have been prevented. And which of the leading generals was responsible? Patton - Montgomery - Bradley - Eisenhower? And what was the reasoning behind this stupid lapse in Allied command. Rohmer, during his research, found the truth. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo. Association Copy.

Lightly rubbed at the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; no interior markings.

ROOM 3603

By Hyde, H. Montgomery (foreword by Ian Fleming)

New York: Ballantine Books, 1977. 286 pp. Light edge and corner wear with a crease on the front hinge and a flat uncreased spine; previous owner's name inside. The BSC - British Security Co-ordination - was a covert organisation set up in New York City by the British Secret Intelligence Service - MI6 - in May 1940 with the authorization of Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Its purpose was to investigate enemy activities, prevent sabotage against British interests in the Americas, and mobilise pro-British opinion in the Americas. As a huge secret agency of nationwide news manipulation and black propaganda, the BSC influenced news coverage in the Herald Tribune, the New York Post, The Baltimore Sun, and Radio New York Worldwide. The stories from Rockefeller Center would then be legitimately picked up by other radio stations and newspapers, before being relayed to the American public. Through this, anti-German stories were placed in major American media outlets to turn public opinion against the Germans, quite necessary because so many people in the U.S. actually sided with Germany. BSC benefitted from support given by the chief of the US Office of Strategic Services, William J. Donovan - whose organization was modelled on British activities - and US President Franklin D. Roosevelt who was seriously against the Nazis. The Contents are: Foreword by Ian Fleming; Prelude; The Birth of B.S.C.; Spies Saboteurs and Propagandists; The Vichy French and Others; Special Operations; C.O.I. and O.S.S.; Propaganda at Work; and Finale; followed by an index.. First Printing - First Thus. Paperback. Very Good.
