1)     (Crusades) The Sword and the Scimitar: the Saga
of the Crusades by Ernle Bradford. Victor Gollancz Ltd.,
London. 1st Edition. 1974. Sm. 4 to., 240 pp. From 1096
to 1291, 8 crusades from Western Europe were launched into

priests, traders and even peasants. No less than 150,000
nobles, knights and foot-soldiers set out for Asia Minor
in 1097 on the First Crusade, fully described here by
Bradford. He also tells how many Christian Europeans
found the Levant to their liking and carved out estates
there. Jerusalem, wrestled from the Moslems in the First
Crusade, finally fell again to the Moslems in 1291. Many
illustrations from prints and paintings, some in colour.

3)    (Napoleon) St. Helena During Napoleon's Exile:
Gorrequer's Diary, by James Kemble. Heinemann, London.
1st Edition. 1969. 8 vo., 298 pp. plus 8 pp. of b/w
illustrations. Major Gideon Gorrequer, a British soldier
of Huguenot stock, was aide-de-camp and acting military
secretary to Sir Hudson Lowe, the Governor of St. Helena
during Napoleon's banishment. Gorrequer wrote his Diary
in code, with pseudonyms for the principle characters.
James Kemble broke the code and dexiphered the often
almost illegible entries in the diary and presents in this
book an entirely fresh view of the drama of life on St.
Helena from 1816-1821. Blue cloth. Minor edgewear; ding
to bottom of spine; couple very minor stains on cover;
prev. owner's small address sticker on f.e.p.; o/w a

4    (Crimea) The Crimean War: a reappraisal by Philip
Warner. Taplinger Publishing Co., N.Y. 1973. 1st U.S. Edition.
Sm. 8 vo., 216 pp. plus 16 pp. of b/w illus. Up until the
writing of this book, the Crimean War was generally presented
to the public as the classic model of military and medical 
blunder. Military inefficiency was felt to have been slightly
redeemed by the glamour of the Charge of the Light Brigade, and
medical chaos made acceptable by the subsequent achievements
of Florence Nightingale. Mr. Warner sets out in this book to
describe the events of the war from the causes to the end, in
chronological sequence, interpolating the account with 
contemporary views--soldier reminiscences, many of which were
never previously published. History enthusiasts who haven't
read this book are in for a treat. Red cloth. Minor edgewear;
prev. owner's small address sticker on f.e.p.; o/w a
VG copy without d.j.                                 $11.00
