14 Ashworth, Chris. RAF Coastal Command, 1936-1969.
Patrick Stephens Limited, (1992). 
Octavo, blue boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 256 pp. Fine, with bookplate; in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: Although RAF Coastal Command existed for 33 years, playing a key role throughout the SEcond World War and beyond, it was little known by the general public or understood by the rest of the Royal Air Force. Formed in 1936, it as still a small reconnaissance force at the outbreak of war, operating almost exlusively on behalf of the Royal Navy. But gradually “Coastal” became an essential part of offensive maritime operations against both the German U-boats and surface shipping. The closing of the Atlantic Gap in 1941-2 and the successful Bay of Biscay operations helped force the U-botas on to the defensive and prevent them starving Britain of food and the means to fight -- while the Strike Wing concept was vital in the battle against the enemy's coastal shipping. The Command had responsibility for “weather” flights. It also undertook photo reconnaissance, and air-sea rescue throughout a parish that stretched from Iceland to the Azores. Post-war came the inevitable contraction, but the Command was still a viable force when its assets were handed over to No 18 (Maritime) Group in 1969. The impressive wartime story covers the “reign” of four commanders: Bowhill, Joubert, Slessor, and Sholto Douglas. Woven into the text are the effects of external pressures on forward planning and daily operations -- although taxed with crucial and dangerous work, Coastal Command was always the Cinderella when it came to funding. Also considered in detail are the weapons, equipment and tactics deployed and, post-war, the development of the Shackleton and NImrod...

18 Balchen, Bernt. Come North with Me, An Autobiography.
Hodder and Stoughton Ltd., (1959). 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 318 pp. Tidy former-owner bookplate; otherwise, Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with light rubbing to edges. From dust jacket: Here is ther personal adventure story of a man who played a vital part in many of the most extraordinary feats of exploration this century has known. It tells of those exciting and risky early days of flying when an aeroplane was not the massive and wonderfully deeloped piece of machinery that it is now, but a tempermental and rather flimsy craft which called for prodigies of skill and courage. The hazards of exploration in the Arctic and Antarctic are still considerable, but they were infinitely greater and more varied when Bernt Balchen piloted Byrd over the icy expanses of Antarctica to the South Pole. he was, in fact, the first man to fly an aeroplane across both Poles -- although it was not until somebody pointed this out to him many years later that he realised it. From his Atlantic flight with Byrd in 1927 to his fantastic wartime air operations in Greenland and his support of the secret fighters of the Norwegian resistance, Balchen's life has been one of adventure and achievement, and woven into his story are portraits of the great men of aviation he has known personally, Byrd, Floyd, Bennett, Arnold and Amundsen. Above all, this is a human story, enriched by the author's graphic style and gift of expression.
