 THE STRAITS FROM TROY TO CONSTANTINOPLE: The Ancient History of the Dardanelles, Sea of Marmara and Bosporos In ancient times, the series of waterways now known as the Turkish Straits, comprising the Dardanelles (or Hellespont), Sea of Marmara, and the Bosporus, formed both a divide and a bridge between Europe and Asia. Its western and eastern entrances were guarded, at different times, by two of the most fabled cities of all time: respectively Troy (in Asia) and Byzantion (or Byzantium, on the European coast). The narrow crossing points at the Hellespont and Bosporus were strategically important invasion routes while the waters themselves were vital routes of travel and commerce, particularly the supply of grain from the hinterland of the Black Sea to the Greek cities. This made them valuable prizes and sources of friction between successive empires — Persians, Macedonians, and Romans among them. It also ensured the locales were associated with some of the great names of history, from Odysseus to Xerxes, and Alexander the Great to Constantine the Great. $43.00

 EVERYTHING WORKED LIKE CLOCKWORK: The Mechanization of British Regular and Household Cavalry 1918-1942   Hardback edition. Describes the process of retraining British and Household cavalry regiments from post-WWI to 1942 to fight in armored vehicles. Relies heavily on regimental and War Office archives, the historical papers of the tank manufacturer Vickers, Britain by Mass Observation archives, the Imperial War Museum’s oral history archives, and interviews with the small number of remaining WWII veterans.  This book checks the accuracy of the assertion that the delay in mechanization was due to reluctance by the cavalrymen to part with their horses and their technophobic attitude. Includes the backdrop of the social, economic and political climate of the 1920s and 1930s, and the pressure on politicians from the wider franchise and public opinion.  $70.00
