[HLMainPic] Historical treatise on (mainly) British naval operations from the days of Henry VIII, with much on Dutch wars of the later 17th Century, Napoleonic wars (with much on the West Indies &c.), American Civil War &c., usefully divided into sibject areas such as: The Struggle for The Command of the Sea; Attempts to Gain Command of the Sea; Attacks on Territory from the Sea, &c.

GOUGH (Col. J.E., VC, CMG) Fredericksburg & Chancellorsville: A Study of the Federal Operations. Intro. by Brig. H.H. Wilson, CB. DSO. 1st Ed., xvi+285pp., 17 fldg. maps (2 in end-pocket). Hugh Rees. 1913  #53663
[HLMainPic] Rare, informed study, based on Gough's battlefield tour that he undertook while on leave & presented as a series of lectures to the Staff College in 1912. Brother of Hubert, Johnnie Gough was Haig's chief of staff 1914-15. He had won his VC in Somaliland & was unfortunately killed early in 1915 on the eve of taking over command of a division. One of the 'what ifs' of the Great War as he was a very highly regarded officer who took his profession seriously & was destined for high command. Interesting that he chose the somewhat controversial Henry Wilson to contribute the Introduction. Orig. red cloth, gilt, sp. sl. sunned o/w VG. See illustration on our websiite.   £75
