Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. The eagerly anticipated follow-up to last years New York Times no.1 bestseller NOTHING LIKE IT IN THE WORLD. Author Stephen Ambrose brings us the unforgettable story of the young men who flew the B-24's over wartime Germany. In THE WILD BLUE, Ambrose describes how the Air Force recruited, trained and then chose the few who would undertake the most demanding and dangerous jobs in the war. These are the boys turned pilots, bombardiers, navigators and gunners of the B24's, who suffered 50 percent casualities. With his extraordinary talent for bringing alive the action and tension of combat, Ambrose takes us along in the B24's as their crews fought to the death to reach their targets and destroy the German war machine. Twenty two year old George McGovern flew thirty five missions and won the Distinguished Flying Cross. THE WILD BLUE will be published, in America, simultaneously with the Dreamworks/HBO ten-part series, BAND OF BROTHERS, based on Ambrose's bestselling account of Easy Company on its journey from training camps in England to Hitler's headquarters.; 9.50 X 6.20 X 1.10 inches; 304 pages

4 Ambrose, Stephen E. Undaunted Courage Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West
New York Simon & Schuster 1996 0684811073 / 9780684811079 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good- in Very Good- dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact with protective (Demco) plastic film. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. A biography of Meriwether Lewis that relies heavily on the journals of both Lewis and Clark, this book is also backed up by the author's personal travels along Lewis and Clark's route to the Pacific. Ambrose is not content to simply chronicle the events of the "Corps of Discovery" as the explorers called their ventures. He often pauses to assess the military leadership of Lewis and Clark, how they negotiated with various native peoples and what they reported to Jefferson. Though the expedition failed to find Jefferson's hoped for water route to the Pacific, it fired interest among fur traders and other Americans, changing the face of the West forever. ; B&W Photographs; 9.50 X 6.50 X 1.50 inches; 512 pages

9 Barbero, Alessandro The Day of the Barbarians The Battle That Led to the Fall of the Roman Empire
New York Walker Books 2007 0802715710 / 9780802715715 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. On August 9, 378 AD, at Adrianople in the Roman province of Thrace (now western Turkey), the Roman Empire began to fall. Two years earlier, an unforeseen flood of refugees from the East Germanic tribe known as the Goths had arrived at the Empire's eastern border, seeking admittance. Though usually successful in dealing with barbarian groups, in this instance the Roman authorities failed. Gradually coalesced into an army led by Fritigern, the barbarian horde inflicted on Emperor Valens the most disastrous defeat suffered by the Roman army since Hannibal's victory at Cannae almost 600 years earlier. The Empire did not actually fall for another century, but some believe this battle signaled nothing less than the end of the ancient world and the start of the Middle Ages. ; 8.30 X 5.80 X 0.90 inches; 192 pages

14 BLAINEY, GEOFFREY A Land Half Won
Melborne SUN BOOKS 1983 0725104112 / 9780725104115 Paperback Fair 
Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. This is far less turgid than 'The Tyranny of Distance' mostly because it is less ambitious, I suppose. 'Tyranny' reads like a very long thesis. If you struggled through 'Tyranny' don't give up on Geoffrey Blainey, try this one. He is our best historian, doesn't have an axe to grind and writes really well. 'A Land Half Won' has lots of funny and unsettling stories about white men's first contact with aborigines and treats both not as cardboard cut-outs, me good, you bad stuff. An example is one story of first contact where the aborigines finally got up the courage to ask if the bullocks travelling with the Europeans were their women and another story about one older aboriginal bursting into tears when she first saw European settlers, thinking they must be the ghosts of dead relatives. It covers Australia up to about 1900. For the story of how the English made Australia into a successful, orderly and peaceful place in a very short time. ; 8.4 x 5.8 x 0.7 inches; 388 pages; Ships within 24 hours.

20 Books, Time-Life What Life Was Like At the Dawn of Democracy : Classical Athens 525-322 Bc
New York Time Life Education 1997 0783554532 / 9780783554532 First Edition (?) Hardcover Very Good- with no dust jacket 
Unmarked, except for previous owner's name on inside cover page. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. With lavish color art and vivid descriptions, this book re-creates the world of ancient Athens. The scope is broad, including politics, sports, society, arts, and religion. In a presumed attempt to enliven the text, the editors have used imagined or sketchy historical incidents to link topics. For example, one chapter calls up an actual incident in which a man kills his unfaithful wife's lover--an acceptable solution according to ancient Greek law. Although little about the incident is really known (not even the wife's name is recorded) , the occurrence evolves into 25 pages that include speculation about the events, brief essays on education and medicine, and facts about Athenian marriage rites, domestic architecture, and social customs. In this instance, the incident is little more than a gimmick on which to hang research. However, the rich and fascinating culture ultimately does come alive, and thanks to an in-depth index, readers will be able to extract the information they want and need.
