65 BUTLER, LIEUT.-COLONEL EWAN & BRADFORD, M.B.E., M.C., MAJOR J. SELBY. Keep The Memory Green: The First Of The Many - France 1939-40.
Hutchinson, London: 1950. Second Impression. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition considering its age. There are some small tears in the dustjacket.. 
Ten years ago - in the last days of May and in early June 1940 - the British Expeditionary Force was, by the grace of Providence and by British valous, saved from annihiltion and brought home, through Dunkirk, to fight another day. The victories won by British arms in the years in which followed that great deliverance have made menforget those soldiers - upon whom it fell to withstand the shock of Hitler's great attack. It is now fitting that these men and their Commander-in-Chief, Lord Gort, should be worthilly remembered, and their story fully told, from those first landings in France, in the autumn of 1939, until the climax of Dunkirk. The authors, both professional writers, themselves served as officers with the B.E.F., and have recaptured the gallantry and comradeship of that little force.

66 CALLAHAN, RAYMOND A. Triumph At Imphal-kohima: How The Indian Army Finally Stopped The Japanese Juggernaut.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2017. Modern War Studies Series Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In the spring of 1944, on the eastern front of India near the Burmese border, the seemingly unstoppable Imperial Japanese Army suffered the worst defeat in its history at the hands of Lieutenant General William Slim's British XIV Army, most of whose units were drawn from the little-esteemed Indian Army. Triumph at Imphal-Kohima tells the largely unknown story of how an army that Winston Churchill had once dismissed as "a welter of lassitude and inefficiency" came to achieve such an unlikely, unprecedented, and critical victory for the Allied forces in World War II. Long the British Empire's strategic reserve, the Indian Army had been comprehensively defeated in Malaya and Burma in 1941-1943. Military historian Raymond Callahan chronicles the remarkable exercise in institutional transformation that remade the British Indian forces to reverse those losses. With the invaluable help of the American DC-3 on the Burma front, Slim overhauled the British XIV Army with the Imperial Japanese Army's strategic weaknesses in mind; namely, an utter disregard for logistics and an unrelenting addiction to the attack. Callahan shows how, on an enormous battlefield—over five hundred miles from north to south—the XIV Army surmounted the challenges of terrain, disease, wretched communication, and climate to draw the Imperial forces under Lieutenant General Mutaguchi Renya ever deeper into ever stronger British defensive arrays until the Japanese Army's vaunted offensive aggression finally exhausted itself. Following this epic battle from build-up to aftermath, this book brings overdue detailed attention to Lieutenant General William Slim's handling of perhaps the most complex battle any Allied commander fought during World War II—and to the long-belittled British Indian Army that became the magnificent fighting force that triumphed at Imphal-Kohima and went on to reconquer Burma. Raymond Callahan is professor emeritus at the University of Delaware. His many books include The East India Company and Army Reform 1783-1798; Burma, 1942-1945; and, also from Kansas, Churchill and His Generals. "The fall, rebirth, and rise of the Indian Army, along with perceptive analysis of British-American combined warfare and logistics, make Triumph at Imphal-Kohima a valuable work that offers lessons for today's military. Callahan has written a readable study on rebuilding armies, combined warfare, and the importance of logistics at the operation level in an oft-overlooked theater." —Infantry "This is an excellent book, achieving not only its aim of creating a book for general readership, but also providing a valuable resource for scholars."—Journal of Military History Finalist, Templer Medal.

70 CARR, J. REVELL. All Brave Sailors: The Sinking Of The Anglo-saxon, August 21, 1940.
Simon and Schuster, Inc., New York: 2005. 0743238370 / 9780743238373 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
In the darkness before moonrise on the Atlantic Ocean off the African coast on August 21, 1940, the night erupted in a fusillade of bullets and shells. The victim was a stalwart English tramp steamer, Anglo-Saxon, part of the lifeline that was keeping besieged England supplied. The attacker was the Widder, a German surface raider, disguised as a neutral merchant ship. When it was near its prey, the raider unmasked its hidden armament and with overwhelming force destroyed the target ship. Only seven of the forty-one man crew of the Anglo-Saxon managed to get into a small boat and escape the raiders. Seventy days later, two of them, half dead, stumbled ashore in the Bahamas. The account of the sailors' ordeal -- how first the badly wounded and then the less strong died and were thrown over the side of a fragile boat that had almost no supplies -- is suspenseful and riveting. On the same day the two survivors reached the Bahamas, the Widder arrived off Brest, in occupied France, her murderous voyage over. Her captain, Hellmuth von Ruckteschell, who sank a staggering twenty-five ships, was eventually tried as a war criminal. All Brave Sailors is a story of endurance, heroism, brutality, and survival under the most terrible circumstances. It fills a gap in the history of World War II, telling the story of the much neglected sailors and the ships of the merchant marine, fighting against great odds in the early days of the war. Includes an Index.

71 CHEW, SELFA A. Uprooting Community: Japanese, Mexicans, World War II, And The U.s.-mexico Borderlands
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2016. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Joining the U.S.' war effort in 1942, Mexican President Manuel Ávila Camacho ordered the dislocation of Japanese Mexican communities and approved the creation of internment camps and zones of confinement. Under this relocation program, a new pro-American nationalism developed in Mexico that scripted Japanese Mexicans as an internal racial enemy. In spite of the broad resistance presented by the communities wherein they were valued members, Japanese Mexicans lost their freedom, property, and lives. In Uprooting Community, Selfa A. Chew examines the lived experience of Japanese Mexicans in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands during World War II. Studying the collaboration of Latin American nation-states with the U.S. government, Chew illuminates the efforts to detain, deport, and confine Japanese residents and Japanese-descent citizens of Latin American countries during World War II. These narratives challenge the notion that Japanese Mexicans enjoyed the protection of the Mexican government during the war and refute the mistaken idea that Japanese immigrants and their descendants were not subjected to internment in Mexico during this period. Through her research, Chew provides evidence that, despite the principles of racial democracy espoused by the Mexican elite, Japanese Mexicans were in fact victims of racial prejudice bolstered by the political alliances between the United States and Mexico. The treatment of the ethnic Japanese in Mexico was even harsher than what Japanese immigrants and their children in the United States endured during the war, according to Chew. She argues that the number of persons affected during World War II extended beyond the first-generation Japanese immigrants "handled" by the Mexican government during this period, noting instead that the entire multiethnic social fabric of the borderlands was reconfigured by the absence of Japanese Mexicans. Selfa A. Chew holds an MFA in creative writing and a PhD in borderlands history from the University of Texas at El Paso. She is an editor for Border Senses Literary Review. She teaches at the University of Texas at El Paso and New Mexico State University.—Choice This volume is necessary reading for Latin American, Mexican, Latino, and Asian American historians… [and] the general public will have a strong interest.—Hispanic American Historical Review Chew has crafted a thoughtful, well-researched, and critical analysis of this shameful period of Mexican and U.S. histories.—Barbara O. Reyes, author of Private Women, Public Lives: Gender and the Missions of the Californias Scholars in the field have been waiting for a book like this for a long time. Drawing on new archival discoveries and oral histories, the author provides for the first time a comprehensive look at the plight of Japanese Mexicans during World War II.—Erika Lee, co-author of Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America
