...<b>The Raiders.</b>, Garrett, Richard
1 Garrett, Richard ...The Raiders.
Florence, Kentucky: Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1980. 0442258739 / 9780442258733 First Edition; First Printing; Full Number Line; Hardcover in Jacket.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality, Dust jacket in protective Mylar sleeve.
During World War II the British Commandos and the United States Rangers brought the art of combined operations and of the sudden, lightning strike upon the enemy to a level of organisation never reached in any previous war. But the Commandos and the Rangers were the inheritors of a long tradition; the history of strike forces made up of highly trained, highly professional crack troops is as old as that of war itself. In "The Raiders" Richard Garrett tells the stories of some of the most exciting of the raids carried out by these more-or-less irregular strike forces - raids which have often had an effect upon the course of war out of all proportion to the numbers of men involved - and provides linking commentaries that put each raid in perspective and add up to a concise history of this little-studied branch of warfare.

...<b>The Deceivers: Allied Military Deception in the Second World War.</b><br>, Holt, Thaddeus,
2 Holt, Thaddeus, ...The Deceivers: Allied Military Deception in the Second World War.

New York: Skyhorse Pub Co Inc., 2007.
 9781602391420
 Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality.

Secret codes, ciphers, strategic misdirection, and more: Deception was one of the most powerful weapons utilized by the Allies in World War II.

Here are some of the amazing tricks and leaked misinformation—many revealed for the first time—that helped lure the Axis powers into false, even dangerous, positions.

The collection of incredible codes, surreptitious spies, and false battle plans is made all the more enjoyable by Thaddeus Holt’s masterful writing, as well as the accompanying photos. His novel-like storytelling includes many illuminating profiles of the war’s central figures and the roles they played in specific deceptive operations.

...<b>Lone Wolf: The Life and Death of U-Boat Ace Werner Henke  </b><br>, {World War II] Mulligan, Timothy
17 {World War II] Mulligan, Timothy ...Lone Wolf: The Life and Death of U-Boat Ace Werner Henke

Westport, Conn.: Praeger, 1993.
 0275936775
 First Edition, First Printing.
 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
This book relates the life and the death of the rebel German seaman who became one of the most successful U-Boat commanders of World War II. A narrative outlining the history of his boat, U-515, and its crew.

Also, the biography of a man who defies the stereotypes of German character, who never fit in as a career officer in the German Navy, but who chose a suicidal death in acceptance of the code of the military service whose rules he continually bent and broke.

Though the story Mulligan relates is engrossing and action-packed, it is also a carefully documented study that breaks new ground in uncovering the sociological background of Henke and his crew; in short, it is a study in German history as well as a biography of a U-Boat Commander.

No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal retail handling; Still Gift Quality. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve.
