Commandos From The Sea: The History Of Amphibious Special Warfare In World War II And The Korean War. Dwyer. Commandos From The Sea: The History Of Amphibious Special Warfare In World War II And The Korean War. Dwyer.

For the first time the full story of U.S. amphibious special warfare units during World War II and the Korean War is revealed in gripping, painstakingly researched accounts of battles that few knew even occurred. Author and historian John B. Dwyer spent years gathering these first-person accounts of amphibious commando operations in Europe, North Africa, the Pacific, China, and Korea. From secret joint military-OSS and CIA missions and thrilling submarine ops to river raids deep into Nazi-controlled North Africa to the training and insertion of Korean commandos for a secret war in North Korea to fatal engagements with Japanese occupation forces in China, Dwyer chronicles the heroic feats of men who were willing to try anything and go anywhere to accomplish their dangerous missions. With dramatic action shots of amphibious commandos in action, Commandos from the Sea is the definitive history of America's waterborne warriors of World War II and the Korean War.

Carvings from the Veldt. Part 1. George Carvings from the Veldt. Part 1. George

Published in 2004, this book has been updated and reprinted in 2014 (7th re-print). This book is the 'First Ever' publication that is dedicated to the large variety of carvings found on Boer War Rifles and Carbines. The book features stock-art on Boer rifles as well as on British and Colonial rifles and carbines. There is also a chapter on rifles fitted with plaques and engraved escutcheons - such as presentation rifles and the sought after 'Plezier' Mauser (Pleasure or Sporting Mauser rifles that were popular with many Boer officers and also purchased by the more affluent Boers.)

The book contains over 320 photos and illustrations of which 310 are in COLOUR(covering rifles, carbines, stock-art, maps, badges, medals and illustrations). These photos cover a wide range, from very basic inscriptions to the highly artistic and ornate carvings, designs and decorations found on the stocks of these rifles. Comprising Mauser, Martini-Henry, Westley Richards, Martini-Metford, Martini-Enfield, Guedes, Mannlicher, Lee-Metford, Lee-Enfiled as well as a few other models of rifles and Carbines.

After more than 3 years of research, The author has certainly come up with a 'First'. In addition to the amazing variety of stock art featured, he has where possible related a brief history about some of the original Boer and Colonial soldiers. There are photos of Boers and soldiers as well as farm maps, official forms, copies of original documents as well as badges and medals worn by both sides.

There are 40 rifles carved to Australian and New Zealand troops (in most cases I have been able to include brief service details of these soldiers and where possible a photo as well). One chapter is dedicated to the thousands of captured Boer rifles and carbines that were shipped out to various colonies after the war as 'trophies' - hence the survival rate of these most historic weapons. Part 4 is a brief overview of the medals awarded to both Boer and British soldiers, which makes this publication very appealing to a range of readers such as military historians, rifle collectors, medal collectors and students. The 140 page book has a list of contributors, acknowledgements, abbreviations, glossary, bibliography and index.

Spiral Bound, 140 Pages.

When war broke out in August 1914, Britain found itself in desperate need of basic military equipment to arm the rapidly
expanding volunteer army in response to Lord Kitchener's "Your country needs you" campaign.
In particular there was a shortage of rifles, partly because of the huge loss of equipment in the opening months of the war.
This book chronicles the measures taken to solve the crisis at the time when every rifle counted. It also sets out some of the improvised methods found necessary to meet the demands of trench warfare.
