Civil War Justice  Union Army Executions Under Lincoln, Alotta, Robert I.
8 Alotta, Robert I. Civil War Justice Union Army Executions Under Lincoln
Shippensburg PA White Mane Publishing Company 1989 0942597109 / 9780942597103 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Dust jacket shows some edgewear, scuffing, only light wear to book. ; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; B&W Photographs; 9.20 X 6.10 X 1.20 inches; 234 pages; Alotta analyzes every recorded military execution in the Union army during President Lincoln's administration, including a significant number not reflected in the official government report on the subject. After a general discussion of the relevant sections of the military codes and the way in which the draconian rules governing capital offenses were understood and applied--or, frequently, misunderstood and misapplied-by field commanders, the author investigates various aspects of military executions during the Civil War. Although this monograph throws valuable light on its subject by considering army executions by type of offense, spatial and temporal distribution, racial affinities of the culprits, and detailed case histories of almost 250 court-martials, it fails to live up to some of the premises made in the Preface and Introduction. For example, the Preface states that the book is "a factual account of how Lincoln's lack of management skills, his vacillation in regard to military decisions, and his complete disregard for the Constitution caused the deaths of many Union soldiers." In fact, there is very little discussion of these premises in the text, and no attempt to prove the assertions rigorously.

The Halifax Explosion and the Royal Canadian Navy  Inquiry and Intrigue, Armstrong, John Griffith
12 Armstrong, John Griffith The Halifax Explosion and the Royal Canadian Navy Inquiry and Intrigue
Vancouver BC University of British Columbia Press 2002 077480890x / 9780774808903 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Light edge wear, small nick to front panel of dust jacket, missing front free end paper, ; DJ in Mylar. A bright, solid book ; Studies in Canadian Military History; 0.9 x 9.1 x 6.2 Inches; 248 pages; "The Halifax Explosion of 1917 is a defining event in the Canadian consciousness, yet it has never been the subject of a sustained analytical history. Astonishingly, until now no one has consulted the large federal government archives that contain first-hand accounts of the disaster and the response of national authorities. Canada's recently established navy was at the epicentre of the crisis. Armstrong reveals the navy's compelling, and little-known, story by carefully retracing the events preceding the disaster and the role of the military in its aftermath. He catches the pulse of disaster response in official Ottawa and provides a compelling analysis of the legal manoeuvres, rhetoric, blunders, public controversy, and crisis management that ensued. His disturbing conclusion is that federal officials knew of potential dangers in the harbour before the explosion, took no corrective action, and kept the information from the public. As a result, a Halifax naval officer was made a scapegoat and the navy received lasting, and mostly undeserved, vilification. This is a provocative read not only for military and naval devotees but for anyone who wants to understand one of the events that shaped Canada in the twentieth century. Published in association with the Canadian War Museum."

This squadron he was based in Foggia in Italy, living under canvas without the barest of military or personal necessities. The duration of a tour at that time was 40 front-line operations over such dangerous targets as Ploesti and the Danube – few in the squadron felt they could survive since the casualty rate was so high. Then came his part in the desperate attempts to supply the besieged city of Warsaw when the Liberators were ordered to fly in at 500 feet, at their lowest speed and with flaps and undercarriage down, to drop desperately needed ammunition and supplies. All this through a hail of both German and Russian gunfire. On his 37th sortie Jim, aged twenty, was severely wounded when he was hit by Flak whilst is in his bomb-aimer’s position in the aircraft’s nose."

20 Ballard, Michael B. U.S. Grant The Making of a General, 1861-1863
Lanham MD Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc. 2005 0742543080 / 9780742543089 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Front flap of DJ creased, light edge wear; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; The American Crisis Series; 1 x 8.9 x 6.1 Inches; 184 pages; What made Ulysses S. Grant tick? Perhaps the greatest general of the Civil War, Grant won impressive victories and established a brilliant military career. His single-minded approach to command was coupled with the ability to adapt to the kind of military campaign the moment required. In this book, Michael B. Ballard provides a crisp account of Grant's strategic and tactical concepts in the period from the outset of the Civil War to the battle of Chattanooga—a period in which U. S. Grant rose from a semi-disgraceful obscurity to the position of overall commander of all Union armies. The author carefully sifts through diaries and letters of Grant and his inner circle to try to get inside Grant's mind and reveal why those early years of the war were formative in producing the Civil War's greatest general.
