ARLEIGH BURKE / GORDON MCLINTOCK
De-Classified Copies of Documents on the Naval Battles Off Cape St. George and Empress Augusta Bay, November, 1943
Department of the Navy, 1943 (1984).,Vice Adm. Gordon McLintock served as Superintendant of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, at Kings Point, NY, from 1948 to 1970. He was a naval historian, with a strong interest in the military career of Adm. Arleigh ('31-knot') Burke. Our offering consist of three items: (1) a photostatic copy of an ALS dated Nov. 19, 1984, from Adm, McLintock to Frank Uhlig, the editor of the Naval War College Review, following-up on McLintock's request for the 'critique of Admiral Burke's action off Cape St. George' (referencing the Battle of Cape St. George, fought off the southernmost tip of the island of New Ireland, part of Papua New Guinea, on November 26, 1943). (2) Mr. Uhlig's TLS reply, dated December 11, 1984, in which he says: 'Here is everything we have been able to find on the battles of Cape St. George and Empress Augusta Bay, in both of which Arleigh Burke participated as ComDesRon 23 (commander of destroyer corps 23)'. This includes a track chart of Empress Augusta Bay, a copy of a report from ComDesRon 23 to CinC First Fleet on the action off Cape St. George and Nauru Island, the Battle Experience bulletin on Cape St. George and Nauru Island and, lastly, the Combat Narrative for the Bougainville Landing and the Battle of Empress Augusta Bay. The documents referenced in Uhlig's letter form item (3) of this offering. The Battle Experience bulletin is a 28-page photostat, the track chart is also a copy, and the report and narrative are quite large photostatic copies of uneven quality (of reproduction). Ill.: maps, charts.

MOORE, JAMES
A Narrative of the Campaign of the British Army in Spain Commanded by His Excellency Lieut-General Sir John Moore
London, J. Johnson, 1809. 4th edition. Hardcover. 8vo. Moore (1761-1809) was a life-long soldier who served in the American Revolutionary War (1779). In 1808, he was sent to Portugal under the command of Sir Harry Burrard, and then became commander-in-chief upon Burrard's recall. He decided to transport his troops by land from Lisbon to Corunna (called 'Coruna' in the text) but was forced, partly by lack of supplies, to retreat into Portugal, when he was requested by Sir Charles Stuart to come to the defence of Madrid. He managed to get within a day's march of the Spanish capital when he learned that Napoleon had taken the city and cut off his own retreat to Portugal. Moore then commenced an historic retreat over difficult country in midwinter to Corunna, arriving there on Jan. 13, 1809. Upon the arrival of the French, he was mortally wounded, but lived long enough to hear of their defeat. He was then buried at midnight in the Citadel of Corunna on Jan. 16, 1809. The editor of this work was Moore's brother. This Narrative was reprinted at least five times in the year of its publication, but was extensively revised and expanded for this, the fourth edition. This volume, originally encased in drab publisher's boards, has been freshly, and professionally, re-bound in grey cloth, with a morocco spine label, and clean endpapers. Both maps slightly foxed; otherwise in excellent condition. Wants the portrait of Moore and the frontispiece view of Corunna. Contents generally quite foxed, but otherwise clean. Ill.: two colored, folding maps. Pagination: xvii, 388, 136. With Plan of the action near Coruna [sic] Jan. 16, 1809 and large folding map of Spain & Portugal.
