(Subject: The Third Reich - General) A study of a German Police Unit. The 500 men, shot at least 38,000 people apart from sending 45,000 to Treblinka for extermination. Using the detailed records of one squad from the Nazis' extermination groups the author explores in detail its composition, its actions, and the methods by which it was trained to perform acts of genocide on an industrial scale. He introduces us to ordinary men who killed without hesitation or apparent remorse for years on end, in docile obedience to an authority they accepted as legitimate.

(Subject: Colonial & Other Wars ) The definitive account of the rise of the Zulu nation under the great ruler Shaka and its fall under Cetshwayo in the Zulu war of 1879. For over a century after the European landing at Capetown in the 17th century the Boers advanced unopposed into the vast interior of Africa. It was not until 1824 that the Europeans came face to face with the Zulus the most formidable nation in Black Africa.

Description:
(Subject: Aviation - General) Slight darkening on d/w. Foxing on top edge. Good. In a effort to promote naval aviation against a campaign let by General William 'Billy' Mitchell in support of Army aviation. Naval chiefs tried to create something spectacular to draw public attention to the necessity of aviation being part of the Fleet. The project was to fly non-stop from the West Coast to Hawaii using PN9s. A series of tests, failures and last minute changes accompanied the development of the planes chosen to undertake the mission. The author describes these attempts including the violent landing in the sea resulting in the crew using the plane as a boat and sailing it for nine days until they reached land.

Description:
(Subject: Other Topics - Diverse Subjects…) An anti-war book originally published in Ohio in 1910 with many facts and figures about armament, weapons, and their effects. It rails against the practice of using young working class men as cannon-fodder while the wealthy who profit from war urge them to their "patriotic duty". An example of anti-capitalist attitudes in the early 20th century, it was a socialist agitator's contribution to the peace-war controversy which immediately preceded the outbreak of the European war in July, 1914.

(Subject: European Conflicts & The Napoleonic Wars) Signed by author on title page. Some highlighting in bibliography. Plastic covered dustjacket. In the autumn of 1799, Napoleon Bonaparte organized a coup and made himself dictator of France, but he knew that France would accept his rule only if he gained military victories that brought peace. The author describes the extraordinary campaigns that followed. At Marengo Bonaparte defeated the Austrians and his fellow General Jean Moreau beat the combined Austrian and Bavarian armies at Hohenlinden. These twin campaigns proved decisive. Bonaparte's dictatorship was secure and his enemies across Europe were forced into a 15-year struggle to overthrow him.
