Prints in 3-5 business days
On August 19, 1942, 5,000 Canadian, 1,000 British, 50 American and 24 French troops attacked Dieppe, France. This was Operation Jubilee, World War II’s first large amphibious operation. The... More > Allies had hundreds of vessels, Churchill tanks, Commandos, Spitfires, Hurricanes, P-51 Mustangs, B-17s, Typhoons, etc. They expected an easy win. However, they met S-boats, determined German troops and hundreds of Luftwaffe aircraft including superb FW-190s, Stukas, Me-109s, Ju-88s, Do-217s and He-111s, flak and artillery. The sky flooded with aircraft, making it the Western Front’s biggest air battle. Germany’s pilots were superb. Though outnumbered, they shot down over 100 Allied aircraft. In hours, the landing Canadians had a massive defeat, losing five out of six men and all their tanks. But the lessons learned at Dieppe saved 10 times as many lives at Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944. “Disaster at Dieppe” is a well-illustrated fast read. 167 pages, 9" x 6", 66 photos and maps.< Less
La Belle Rebelle By Belle Boyd Hardinge
Hardcover: $27.15
Prints in 3-5 business days
"WILL you take my life?" This was the somewhat startling question put to me by Mrs. Hardinge - better known as Belle Boyd - on my recent introduction to her in Jermyn Street. ... More > "Madam," said I, "a sprite like you, who has so often run the gauntlet by sea and land, who has had so many hair-breadth escapes by flood and field, must bear a 'charmed life:' I dare not attempt it." Then, placing in my hands a roll of manuscript, she said, "Take this; read it, revise it, rewrite it, publish it, or burn it - do what you will. It is the story of my adventures, misfortunes, imprisonments, and persecutions. I have written all from memory since I have been here in London; and, perhaps, by putting me in the third person you can make a book that will be not only acceptable to the public and profitable to myself, but one that will do some good to the cause of my poor country, a cause which seems to be so little understood in England."-- From the Introduction.< Less

Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
"Called to the Prairie" is a rare and unique account of early 20th century life in western North Dakota as recorded in the journals of Richard C. Jahn. A young seminary student from St.... More > Louis, he came to McKenzie County in the winter of 1915 to minister to five small Lutheran congregations there. Over the next year, Jahn’s daily entries provide an intimate view of life on the prairie and the homesteaders and ranchers he encountered. Between blizzards and floods, wolf attacks and hazardous journeys, he writes about late night card games, cowpunchers, dirty dishes, prairie hospitality and a much-loved feisty pinto. Discovered in an old shoebox in 2002, Jahn’s journals were accompanied by a treasure trove of personal photographs of the very people, places, and events he wrote about—faithfully reproduced in this unusual account and enhanced by extensive footnotes for historical reference. "Called to the Prairie" is a must–read for anyone who loves North Dakota history or the pioneering spirit.< Less

Gaston County, N.C. - Road, Bridge, and Mill Records (1859-1909) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: List Price: $25.95 $20.76 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Gaston County was form in 1846 from the southern portion of Lincoln County. In order to understand where to search for OLDER records, let’s go back in time. Lincoln was formed in 1779 from... More > Tryon County. Lincoln was reduced in size, when Cleveland County gets part of the western side in 1841. The very next year, 1842, the northern part of the county was removed, forming Catawba County. Four years later, the southern part is removed when Gaston County was formed. There are NO preserved Tryon County records in the State Archives (pertaining to road, bridge, mill, ferry, or ordinary records). Therefore, the older records will require searching in Lincoln County. The bridge records include bridge drawings, and a number of iron bridge drawings, and contracts. The road records (1859-1909) are a general collection of late 19th and early 20th century contents. The mill records are two law suits, one dealing with a dam being raised and flooding, the other details dumping of waste (dye) from a textile mill.< Less

Iceland - Laugavegur Trail By Stephen Platt
eBook (ePub): $6.51
(4 Ratings)
The Laugavegur is one of the big walks. It is the most famous trek in Iceland and crosses other worldly landscapes formed by recent volcanos. I did it from north to south and it runs over 80km from... More > Landmannalauger via Thorsmork to Skogar on the coast. I started on the 15 June, the first day the bus ran to Landmannalaugar. I hadn’t booked the huts as I didn’t know whether I’d make it. So I took camping gear. The scenery is sensational and unlike anywhere I’d been before. At this time of the year there is still a lot of snow. I was alone much of the time, having started early in the year. There were three river crossings in flood and I needed to strip and take care. You pass through vivid rhyolite mountains, climb snow slopes, cross ash deserts, rift canyons and glacial streams. There are wild flowers, sweet birch and the cries of redshank and ptarmigan.< Less
