Philpott, Bryan.

Book Description: Patrick Stephens Ltd., Cambridge, 1st ed., 1981. 89 pp, numerous photo-illustrations. Laminated boards, octavo. Book Condition: Very good.

Now, as a result of much careful research, correspondence with surviving crew members, and with the help of unique German archival material, some of the truly amazing stories about missing aircraft can at last be told. The information has often had to be pieced together like a detective story and, as well as resolving some old mysteries, this book highlights several new ones. These accounts, together with a great number of exciting photographs, will be thoroughly appreciated by aviation enthusiasts and historians alike.

Bounden Duty: The Memoirs of a German Officer 1932-45
Stahlberg, Alexander; Translated By Patricia Crampton

Book Description: Brassey's (UK), London, 1990. Hardcover. 410 pp, 38 plates, 6 maps. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Not Price Clipped. First English Edition. 8vo. Alexander Stahlberg's very personal account of the thirteen dramatic years between 1932 and 1945 combines the most interesting details of the personalities involved including Hitler and his entourage, Goering , von Manstein, the Duke and Duchess of York – with historical events. As a member of a rich Prussian family, Stahlberg moved in the highest political and military circles. To avoid joining the Nazi party he enlisted as a Trooper and served in France, Flanders and Northern Russia becoming subsequently ADC to Field Marshal von Manstein. He witnessed von Stauffenberg's attempt to recruit von Manstein into the military conspiracy to assassinate Hitler. The book is notable for its sketches of the personalities of the time and what went on behind the war. The book portrays his dealings with Hitler, from the first confused telephone conversation to the news of the Fuehrer’s death. A graphic account of Stahlberg’s conflict between duty and conscience.
