        Sound Military Decision

      Newport, R.I.: U.S. Naval War College 1942 - xliii, 243 p. ; 22 cm. Restricted, Copy No. 794. March 1942 printing by Edward C. Kalbfus. Green boards. Spiral bound. Good binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Red pencil under Restricted on front wrap. A rare original copy of the famous Naval Green Book. Admiral Edward Clifford Kalbfus (November 24, 1877 ? September 6, 1954), nicknamed "Old Dutch",[1] was a four-star admiral in the United States Navy who was commander of the Battle Force of the United States Fleet from 1938 to 1939 and President of the Naval War College from 1934 to 1936 and 1939 to 1942. Kalbfus was dissatisfied with the existing guide to naval planning, perceiving a widespread indifference towards the fundamentals of naval warfare; according to Kalbfus, "At the time. it was not generally accepted by the Navy that their business was to fight although, of course, if confronted with this question, they would have agreed that that is what they were hired for. But, within the range of my own observation, both ashore and afloat, I saw that the keeping of office hours and the performance of sundry routine tasks were more in order than an intensive study of the Navy's real business." He decided to replace it by writing a book-length treatment of the precepts of logical thinking that could be applied to every military situation. In Kalbfus' formulation, naval planning should be guided by "the fundamental principle for the attainment of an end," a three-part formula that evaluated the suitability, feasibility, and acceptability of a plan by asking whether the proposed course of action would accomplish the mission, whether the mission could be accomplished using the available resources, and whether the cost would be worth the price. The first draft was circulated among the staff and students for review. Many staff members were dissatisfied with the new text, including Captain Raymond A. Spruance, who objected to Kalbfus' rejection of existing doctrine and to his cumbersome writing style. After assimilating all of the comments, Kalbfus submitted the book for publication under the title Sound Military Decision. before departing the college on December 15, 1936 to assume a fleet command. However, his immediate successor, Rear Admiral Charles P. Snyder, spent a year reviewing the manuscript, then rewrote several chapters for clarity and published this revised edition in May 1938. Outraged at Snyder's tampering, Kalbfus requested a return to the Naval War College in order to finish the book himself, finally publishing his version of Sound Military Decision in March 1942. In 1944, Admiral Ernest J. King enshrined its methodology in naval regulations as COMINCH P-1: "Naval Directives and the Order Form," although it fell from favor after the war. In 1984, the official historians of the Naval War College would write, "Many believe it was and still is the most valuable contribution to military thought made at the Naval War College in the past century.Kalbfus' Sound Military Decision was the most important expression of the college's philosophy, embodying both the focus and understanding expressed in college classrooms throughout the interwar period."

        General Ernst-Eberhard Hell World War II Diary RUSSIA January and February of 1942 with many photos

      1942. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. 13cm x 16.5cm, hard cover album, 34pp of some manuscript and 45 B&W photos (7.5cm x 5cm) affixed inside diary book and 7 B&W photos (8.5cm x 12cm) also mounted inside towards the back. to paper outside diary - 52 photos inside diary. Four later photos and a post card are loose at the back of the diary of one of the places 20 years later.RUSSIA diary with photos of General Ernst-Eberhard Hell factually written about his World War II military posting. This album features maps and photographs with accompanying captions and texts and is devoted to a period spent in the Eastern Front theatre in 1941-42. From the vocabulary and tone of these materials, it is clear that they are intended as personal records or mementos rather than official military memoirs. However, what makes these diaries of greater interest is the combination of the written personal reflections combined with the personal photos visually telling his war memoirs. Insightful personal memoirs and eye-witness accounts from his perspective, later written (we believe the diaries were written and put together by General Hell after he returned from Russian captivity of10 years, as he lived for almost 20 years after his release) of a highly decorated German General. The text is very neat and tidy as are the pasted-in photos which are unusual and appealing. Written in German with English translation available. Fine condition. Ernst-Eberhard Hell was a German general who held several divisional commands and was later elevated to Corps level during World War II. He was also a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves. The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross and its higher grade Oak Leaves was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. Ernst-Eberhard Hell was captured by Soviet troops in August 1944 during the Jassy-Kishinev Offensive (August 1944) and was held until 1955. Awards and decorations, Iron Cross (1914), 2nd Class (11 September 1914), 1st Class (14 August 1916), Eiserner Halbmond, Cross of Honor in 1934, Iron Cross (1939), 2nd Class (12 May 1940), 1st Class (17 May 1940), Eastern Front Medal, German Cross in Gold (14 June 1942), Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Knight's Cross on 1 February 1943 as General der Artillerie and commander of VII. Armeekorps, 400th Oak Leaves on 4 June 1944 as General der Artillerie and commander of VII. Armeekorps, Mentioned in the Wehrmachtbericht (12 March 1944) quoted from Wikipedia RUSSIA DIARY & PHOTOS SUMMARY:The Russian album focuses on the situation of General Hell's unit in January and February 1942, when his Seventh Army Corps was part of a strategic withdrawal following the stalled German assault on Moscow. General Hell gives this record the title "With the Seventh Army Corps in the East in the Time of the Most Severe Frost (January and February) 1942."There are more extensive textual passages here than in the French album, with several handwritten pages devoted to descriptions of troop placements, battle manoeuvres, the impact of winter on the campaign, and conditions at the Front. There are no photographs of actual combat, though troops are shown shortly after fighting near Wassilki; however two pictures (3630_26_LR) of so-called "destructive work" under way at the Russian village of Korawino are evidence of the German scorched-earth policy.With respect to places named, the following specific Russian locations are cited: Waschki (3630_14_LR); Wassilki (3630_21); Korowino (3630_25 and 26); Protwa (3630_26); and Fedjuschkino (3630_27). There is also mention of "Schanja" on page (3630_26), but this is used in the combination "Schanja-Stellung" ("Schanja-position" or placement), so that this may be a Russian term adopted by German troops rather than a place name.A number of other place names are provided on the maps (3630_13) and (3630_19_LR), and can be readily interpreted since they are written in Roman script.

        Ballistik *With German Swastika Ink Stamp Atop Front Board*

      Berlin, Germany Walter De Gruyter & Co. 1942. 267 pages. Index. Text in German. An advanced treatise on ballistics from the second world war era. This copy highly noteworthy for its apparent provenance from the wartime library of a technical institute in Stuttgart as evinced by identical black inkstamps in the upper right corner of the front board, front free endpaper and title pages respectively. This circular stamp depicts an eagle, wings spread, atop a swastika. Around the stamp is lettering which appears to be the name of a technical institute in Stuttgart. A four-digit handwritten book number appears atop each stamp and at foot of backstrip. The swastika portion of the stamp on front endpaper and title page has been neatly covered over in black marker. No other markings. Light external wear to beige boards. Crease to lower corner of front free endpaper and first several pages. Binding sound. It is left to our imaginations to wonder how many German trainers and students learned from this book, and the impact they had on hostilities with the Allies. Author was a prominent mathematician and member of the Nazi party. A quality copy of this important historical item.

        Teenie Weenie Town; Days; & Neighbors. 3 Book set

      McGraw Hill, New York 1942 - DONAHEY TEENIE WEENIE TOWN, DAYS & NEIGHBORS, REALLY NICE !! Featured here is the Complete 3 Book Set of WILLIAM DONAHEY'S Last FIRST EDITION TITLES, done during WORLD WAR II, and, as a result, are Exceeding Difficult to find as publishers faced paper restrictions due to the war effort, and I rarely find Complete Sets, and I have never had one with ALL THREE IN FIRST PRINTING!! Published by Whittlesey House for McGraw-Hill, and done in 7" x 9" Format for the first two, and slightly smaller 6+" x 8" for the last title. Each Title was illustrated by Donahey with 10 FULL PAGE PLATES, + numerous in text illustrations and FULL COLOR ILLUSTRATED END PAPERS. The 1942 TEENIE WEENIE TOWN was done with ALL 10 PLATES in COLOR, whereas both the 1944 TEENIE WEENIE DAYS & 1945 TEENIE WEENIE NEIGHBORS were done with 5 in COLOR and 5 in B&W. (Restrictions and Cost). These first printings of this series were done in cloth, with only the First Book having a Paste-on Illustration. Others have only a stamped illustration. The Cloth became increasingly difficult to publish with, so later printings were done in paper covered boards. The exteriors of the books are all VG++ - F with just a hint of light dusting, soiling or a faint mark. NOTE: The first two books simply left the bottom of the copyright page blank with no "First Printing" stated. The last book finally did indicate it. With all 3, all additional printings were indicated. The Interiors are Nearly Pristine, with NO NAMES, MARKS or DAMAGE !! They are sequenced first to last. Well, there it is - Pictures speak a thousand words! Sorry, I will neither split them up nor discount them! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
