Default WTS: RtL's November Book Sale - REDUCED and new books added!

UPDATED and REDUCED!! All books from the original list are reduced in price at least 25%

ADDITIONS – I added a few new books (not yet reduced) – some good books on military aircraft of the 1980s and 90s!

I have an excellent selection of military and WWII books for you to browse. Some are relatively hard to find in any condition.

NOTE: Books marked with a (*) …. A librarian friend of mine had a very large number of aviation and military books donated to her library and she was unable to use all but a very small number (this is a school library). I offered to attempt to sell some of the books her library can’t use. Any of these books sold will have all the proceeds (less postage, of course) donated back to her library. I can give you details if you want to PM/email. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a receipt for a “donation”.

A) Payment can be made by check or money order. I may have to hold checks until they clear unless you are known to me. Paypal can be used, but a 4% premium will be added to offset fees charged by Paypal unless you do it as a gift/family.

B) All prices do not include shipping. Shipping is done by USPS Media Mail, which I have found economical and secure and now comes with tracking numbers. I will quote a shipping price, when you make an offer. Insurance is optional. Although I pack and ship very carefully, I can’t be responsible if you don’t insure large purchases.

C) Books vary in condition and I do my best to describe them properly. Books are hard-backed unless otherwise mentioned. Any questions will be gladly answered. I will also provide reasonable pictures of the books or their content if you want. Obviously, “I’ll take it” trumps over “Can you send me more information?” 

D) When you contact me about these books, please inquire by book title, not number. You can contact me through this forum or at –rrsbls@msn.com-- (remove dashes)

E) Books are for sale on several forums. When two people offer to buy the same book or books, the earlier email/PM is considered first. I try to update this list to show purchased books at least once a day.

2) “Day of Infamy” by Walter Lord. SOLD

(*) 3) “Ships and Aircraft of the U.S. Fleet” (Naval Institute Guide) by Norman Polmar. An 600+ page LARGE oversized guide to all the ships and aircraft of the navy just after Desert Storm.

Near new, in plastic dust cover but NOT ex-library. $16.00 REDUCED to 11.95

(*) 4) “Pictorial History of the Blue Angels” by Jim McGuire. This book deals primarily with a present day group of men and aircraft that represent the epitome of Navy and Marine Corps aviation. In order to more fully understand where they came from, this book also takes a brief look back to the very beginning of naval aviation and early precision acrobatic flying. During those early years the men of those acrobatic teams, and the aircraft they flew, ventured into a realm of flight that bore a resemblance to the early days of American space pioneering. Large number of photos and paintings. Oversized trade ppk., $11.50

In January, 1879, a massive Zulu host attacked the 24th Regiment in its encampment at the foot of the mountain of Isandlwana, a distinctive feature that bore an eerie resemblance to the Sphinx badge of the outnumbered redcoats. Disaster ensued. Over 800 British soldier were killed. The author reconstructs the final phase of the battle in a way that has never been attempted before. It was to become the stuff of legend, which brings to life so vividly the fear and smell the blood. (remember the two classic movies, “Zulu” and “Zulu Dawn”) Near new/new trade ppk, $9.00
