ALHADEFF, VIC
South Africa in Two World Wars: A Newspaper History
(Cape Town, Don Nelson, 2013, 2nd edition) 9781868063376. . 334 x 245 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 128, incl. index; illustrated throughout with facsimiles of period newspaper reports. Fine condition. "This is a gripping account of South Africa's involvement in World War I and II, recaptured by those who took part and reflected through the eyes of the newspapers of the time. Vic Alhadeff punctuates the narrative with poignant first-hand anecdotes and takes readers behind the front line into the heat of the battle, to where a staggering sixty million men, women and children died. The assassination of the Archduke of Austria, the 1914 Rebellion, the East African Campaign, Chamberlain's ultimatum to Germany, the crises which split South Africa, Dan Pienaar in Abyssinia, Sidi Rezegh, Gazala, Tobruk, El Alamein - names which have become legendin South African history - are all brought back to life, plunging the reader into the trenches and prisoner-of-war camps and, with the use of 200 cleverly chosen newspaper cuttings, graphically depicting South Africa's substantial contribution to the Allied war effort.".

AMERSFOORT, H., AND P. H. KAMPHUIS
Je Maintiendrai. A Concise History of the Dutch Army 1568-1940
(The Hague, Historical Section of the Royal Netherlands Army, 1995). . 8vo; original charcoal cloth gilt; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 149; maps and plans; full-colour plates. Dustwrapper a little sunned on spine; otherwise fine condition. "The words Je Maintiendrai, once the heraldic motto of William of Orange, now form part of the shoulder patch of the uniform of every soldier of the Royal Netherlands Army. As the title of this book, they symbolise not only the four centuries of the Netherlands Army's history that are treated, but also the close ties between the House of Orange-Nassau and the Army. The book begins with a description of the States Army (1568-1795). The Batavian and French periods are then reviewed, followed by the military history of the 19th century, the mobilization during 1914-1918 and the fighting in May 1940. Separate chapters are devoted to the history of fortifications in the Netherlands and the East Indies Army.".

"The generals of that [the First World] war were men whose military outlook had been formed in the nineteenth century and they were faced with the weapon technology of the twentieth. Modern agriculture provided a surplus of food to put in the mouths of unproductive soldiers, modern medicine preserved the unhygienic masses of soldiery from decimation by epidemic disease, and modern transportation enabled millions of men to be concentrated in the theatre of war. Then modern science and engineering enabled factories to turn out modern weapons to kill them in equally large numbers.".
